&quot;Warning to distributors&quot; makes activist leafletting impossible!

United Kingdom, 02.10.2006 23:08

Nottingham City Council have brought in sweeping new laws that will seriously affect the distribution of free activist literature in and around the city centre. Once again - as with fly posting - laws apparently designed to tackle the unbridled activities of commercial promoters are going to have a serious affect on activism and other legitimate exercise of free speech. In certain areas (which are sure to expand as time goes on, and already include the City Centre), free printed material may only be given out with permission and a bought permit from the council.

Actions in Solidarity with the People of Oaxaca!

Boston, 02.10.2006 21:08

On Saturday, September 30th, as Mexican military helicopters flew over Oaxaca City with the intent of threatening and intimidating the peaceful movement of the Popular Assemblies of the People of Oaxaca, Boston activists gathered at the Boylston T stop to spread awareness about the imminent invasion of Oaxaca City by the federal Mexican Army. This small educational action marked the beginning of an on-going campaign of Boston solidarity with the movement of the popular assemblies in Oaxaca. Read more for ideas on how to get involved!

Quick n'easy: fregatura targata Manor

Switzerland, 02.10.2006 15:37

Il progetto è divenuto noto di recente anche a tutti i frequentatori del grande magazzino Manor (ex Innovazione), si chiama Quick n’easy e comporta l’adozione di uno scanner portatile con cui i clienti dei loro supermercati dovranno o potranno, secondo i punti di vista, eseguire da soli il calcolo della spesa da pagare alla cassa tramite la carta di credito.
Si tratta di un sistema di acquisto che rende l'acquisto più frenetico e che obbliga il cliente a scannerizzare personalmente i prodotti che intende acquistare. Così facendo, alla cassa si elimina il passaggio della merce dal carrello al nastro trasportatore e infine alla borsa della spesa.

Di fatto, l’onere lavorativo della cassiera viene scaricato sul cliente, il quale dovrà occuparsi e preoccuparsi di ciò di cui fino a ieri si era occupato la società del grande magazzino in cui va a fare acquisti. L’onere retributivo viene invece risparmiato e resta quindi nelle casse del grande magazzino a gonfiare, molto probabilmente, gli utili di proprietari e azionisti.

Il sistema rappresenta quindi un pessimo affare per il cliente e un guadagno invece per chi lo introduce. Inevitabile, quindi, la drastica riduzione del personale addetto alla cassa, ma, non v’è da dubitarne, ci sarà spiegato, magari con qualche efficace formula appresa dai loro giovani rampanti manager negli stage aziendali sulla comunicazione, che la soluzione non comporterà comunque sacrifici per il personale ma solo vantaggi per la clientela. La realtà sarà invece un’altra: calo del personale dipendente, riduzione dei costi, aumento degli utili aziendali, maggior lavoro per il cliente e nuovi costi sociali per la collettività.

The explosion to come

Portland, 02.10.2006 09:38

Can you feel it yet? There is rumbling underground and soon there will be an explosion that will end life, as we know it---here in the good old US of A.

There are few things that I am certain of, but this one truth should be self-evident, "When the government shuts down all avenues of addressing problems; revolution is the end result."

Look back to history and you will find that the catalyst for revolution has always been a minor event, someone is shot and WW1 was the result---broken promises and the Vietnam War murdered millions. How many Americans even know why we went to war in Vietnam? When did it start, what was our reason for going to war, sacrificing 58,000 young and noble citizens? The number of Vietnamese killed was somewhere between two and three million---no one knows for sure. What did we win? What was the real cost? Did you know that in WW2 Ho Chi Minh was our ally fighting the Japanese and was promised that at the end of the war his country would be independent of France We lied and the war started when the French tried to return to Indo-China. Sound familiar? I don't want to fight the Vietnam War again, but it is important because we are doing the same thing again in Iraq.



Pit Bulls and Prejudice

Portland, 02.10.2006 09:38

Romeo just moved into my home. He's 5 months old, and already he's the smartest and best behaved dog I have ever met. And if it hadn't been for Rhodie, whom I met first, I would never have let Romeo into my heart. Because Romeo is a pit bull. And you know what they say about pit bulls.

Sometimes, prejudices creep in so stealthily that we don't even recognize them for what they are. Take the way a white man might react if he gets his wallet stolen. If the person who steals it is also white, he thinks some asshole stole his wallet. But if the person who stole it is black, and it's the only black person he's ever met, he might start thinking all black people must be assholes because hey, that black guy stole my wallet. Or take the way so many Americans are starting to be fearful and suspicious of Arab people. We're inundated with corporate media manipulations of our minds trying to convince us not to care that our country is bombing and killing Arabs for their oil. So, to help convince us that this is all right, in the corporate media Arab=Terrorist. As a result, without even realizing it, many people get edgy and nervous when they see an Arab man standing next to a doorway, or riding on a bus with them. They often don't even realize that this is prejudice, they think it's only logical caution. And so it is with pit bulls.



Oaxaca Facing Imminent Attack

Portland, 02.10.2006 09:38

The word I have now is that there are about 5,000 men wearing army uniforms who are not army, but police, culled from other states like Vercruz and Morelia, that is to say, this is a PRI operation, not the federal troops, altho I don't know how our source explains the "naval" helicopters (maybe not?). The "police" are heavily armed, and the attack is supposed to happen around 10:00 PM Oaxaca time. The attack, code name cicloncinco, was revealed by the same person who informed our friend that there would be a drive-by shooting last night, which came true.

Update on Oaxaca

I am a student from Portland, Oregon and have taken time off for some travelling. Currently I am in Oaxaca City and will be based here for a time.

First I would like to let everyone know that the expected military attack has not yet occurred. There is still time to stop this attack.

Oaxaca Facing Imminent Attack

San Diego, 02.10.2006 00:38

September 30, 2006 - Information provided below is from Nancy Davies, who is based in Oaxaca and writes frequently on the situation there for Narco News. While the threat of a mass attack has seemed to always be in the air, the situation in recent days has escalated significantly. Now an attack seems imminent.

APPEAL FOR NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL AID
The word I have now is that there are about 5,000 men wearing army uniforms who are not army, but police, culled from other states like Vercruz and Morelia, that is to say, this is a PRI operation, not the federal troops, altho I don't know how our source explains the "naval" helicopters (maybe not?).

US Congress Legalizes Torture and Indefinite Detention

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.10.2006 00:09

On Wednesday September 27th, the US House of Representatives approved HR 6166 by a margin of 253-168 and on September 28th, the US Senate approved its version of the bill, Senate Bill 3930, in a 65-34 vote. The bill will give President Bush extraordinary power to detain and try prisoners. The legislation strips detainees of the right to challenge their own detention and gives the President the power to detain them indefinitely. The bill also immunizes U.S. officials from prosecution for torturing detainees who the military and the CIA captured before the end of last year.

Anti-War Movement Steps Up Civil Disobedience

United States, 01.10.2006 21:07

Last week, activists took their case for ending the Iraqi War to the party responsible for authorizing it -- the US Congress. On Sept. 26, 2006, 71 protesters were arrested by police for expressing their dissent, and the following day another 20 were silenced. The protests were organized by the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance (NCNR) and the Declaration of Peace, and is part of an effort to increase direct action against the war in Iraq.

Campaign Against CCTV Camera(s) in Balsall Heath

United Kingdom, 01.10.2006 19:08

Following the street protest on 23 July, 2006, on Birchwood Road in Birmingham [pics], where angry residents expressed their opposition to the installation of a CCTV camera on their road without any consultation with residents, there have been ongoing activities to demand the removal of the camera and extended the protest to other CCTV cameras in the area.

An anti-CCTV information leaflet was distributed to all residents shortly after the protest, then a petition was put together demanding the removal of the CCTV camera. Every house on Birchwood and Alder roads was called upon twice. Those who have been active against the camera were surprised at the number of residents opposed to the camera and their very good reasons for doing so. Almost everybody was dissatisfied that they had not been consulted about the camera going up. Moreover, activists are now trying to expose the businesses behind it.

Federal Forces Seem on Verge of Attacking Oaxaca



Theresa Mitchell convicted

Portland, 01.10.2006 06:38

Frequent Portland-Indy readers may recall that I reported an incident here in May, in which I was confronted by a sort of armed vigilante parking-patrol as I attempted to look in a shop window on East Burnside. One of them called my employer (because I was wearing my Tri-Met uniform between shifts)-- I bitched him out royally; then the woman said she had a gun. I attempted to provoke her to pull it (so that I could save my butt by executing a dodge-grab maneuver that I learned long ago). This frustrated the woman mightily. So they called the cops and said that they were threatened, and I left.

The "parking patrol" (actually brother and sister Bill and Judy Craine, owners of Holman's Restaurant and Bar) actually filed charges. A week or so later, I was tricked into a "meeting with my manager" and tackled at work by the Portland cops--the arresting officer was Park (yes, Taser-death Park).

palestine journal: september 29

Portland, 01.10.2006 06:38

ok....i'm really concerned now. first i hear the news item that congress just passed a bill suspending habeas corpus -- essentially taking away the right of a prisoner to challenge their imprisonment. this means that people can be held without charge, tortured, and essentially 'disappeared', legally, in the U.S. people who are innocent!! people who have done nothing wrong. and there will be no trial, no day in court where they can prove their innocence. and no way for them to challenge their imprisonment.

and now i hear that today the house has passed the 'warrantless wiretapping' act, and the senate is likely to soon follow. in this bill, the government can listen to anyone's phone, read anyone's email, demand records from telecom companies, and here, too, there is no legal way to appeal.

umm....now, i'm no legal expert (nor am i a big fan of a so-called 'democracy' built on genocide and slavery), but isn't there supposed to be something called 'checks and balances' in the american government? you know, that thing that I learned way back in grade school was 'the basis of american democracy'.

Apparently, every year on the first Sunday in October, Life Chain invites churches in each city and town across North America to stand on a local sidewalk and pray for one hour, while holding signs that include approved pro-life messages. In San Francisco, the life chain will be on Park Presidio Blvd. between Geary and Clement from 2:00pm to 3:30pm. BACORR and others will be there to support the "No on 85" campaign and to counter the right's extremist messaging.
