Mini-Riot at Columbia as Minutemen Forced Off Stage

NYC, 05.10.2006 03:38

As a large, vocal protest raged outside Roone Arledge Auditorium at Columbia University, Minuteman founder Jim Gilchrist was heckled and confronted onstage by students, prompting a fistfight between students and the Minutemen. According to an on-scene report, "there [were] at least two minutes of chaos between students, other students and the Minutemen." It seems Gilchrist was prevented from speaking.

On Your Own Terms: An open letter to activists regarding World Can't Wait

NYC, 05.10.2006 02:38

Tired of stewing in anger while "long war" and torture are normalized, working on campaigns that don't touch the highest powers and an activist culture where we tear each other down instead of pushing forward? Me too. That's why I'm getting involved in this fight and taking it to my neighbors, friends and the street on October 5. This is not a one-day fight. It's nobody's dog-and-pony show.

GAO Shows Biscuit Logging Lost Money

Rogue Valley, 04.10.2006 20:39

A Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released today shows the Bush administration lost taxpayer dollars by logging remote, sensitive forests after the 2002 Biscuit fire. This definitive report by the government's own watchdog group deals another serious blow to Congressman Greg Walden's post-fire logging bill now pending in Congress.



Why Hillary Clinton Voted for the Anti-Immigrant Wall

NYC, 04.10.2006 20:08

Last May, in the wake of mass demonstrations that brought millions of immigrants to the streets in cities throughout the United States, New York’s Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton spoke with disdain for the Republican right’s proposals mandating a crackdown on foreign-born workers.

This Republican-backed legislation, which turned undocumented workers—as well as anyone who provided them with aid—into criminal felons, was the provocation that sparked the mass protests.
“I cannot and will not support one-sided solutions that sound tough but neither deal with our porous borders nor treat with respect and dignity the millions of families who live and work in our country,” Clinton declared.

Last Friday, however, she did exactly that, joining Senate Republicans and the majority of her Democratic colleagues in voting for an ignominious piece of legislation known as the “Secure Fence Act of 2006.”

PigBrother show comes to Oxford

United Kingdom, 04.10.2006 13:38

Internationally, police officers who mutilate or kill people on duty usually get off scot-free, often without the cases even making the news. The Swiss internet site PigBrother.info exposes such cases and the police weapons involved. Though often labelled "less lethal" and portrayed as "harmless", many have proved to be fatal; others have been banned for use in war by e.g. the Geneva Convention yet still frequently used by policeforces worldwide.

In a multimedia live show, Soulless and Anger (the makers of PigBrother.info) present typical cases including weapons, injuries and favourite police excuses from the UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, USA and Switzerland. The show takes place on 9th October, 8pm at East Oxford Community Centre.

Despite the heavy going topic and its technical aspects, the show is presented in an easy to understand and concise way, and Soulless & Anger also focus on the funnier aspects of several Police Operations making the Officers involved look only too human. They demonstrate how persistent work in this area can make a difference, forcing the police and the official media to at least sometimes act more by the book or even abolish some weapons or tactics.

On Sept. 27, 2006, two leading experts on Human Rights spoke at the Palestine Center, in Washington, D.C. Curt Goering of Amnesty International, said Israel’s massive bombing campaign in Lebanon, including dropping more than a million cluster bombs, was a “war crime.” His group is pressing the UN for a full inquiry. Joe Stork of Human Rights Watch called the Israelis’ destruction of Gaza’s only electric power generating plant a “war crime.”

Medical Examiner Reports: James Chasse was bludgeoned to death

Portland, 04.10.2006 01:38

According to Olwen, who called a short time ago to share this report, the cause of James Chasse's death is now public. All 13 of his ribs were broken, and his lung was punctured by the Portland police. After this extreme beating, which also included head trauma from officers kicking him in the head while he was on the ground, he was taken not to a hospital, but to jail. He died in the back of the squad car.

In short, like so many other people who do not conform to the Bland Consumer ideal, he was tortured to death by the Portland police death squads. And then the Grand Jury placed its obligatory seal of approval on the crime. We do not consent.

Alerta al Forat de la Vergonya

A les 8 del matí de dilluns 2 d'octubre dues excavadores van entrar a la pista de bàsquet del Forat amb la intenció d'obrir pas per a unes tuberies que passarien pel carrer Jaume Giralt. L'acord que s'havia assolit amb la Regidoria preveia que no es tocaria per res el terreny del parc del Forat; per això es va demanar al director de la obra que parès. Com a resposta, aquest va trucar a la Guàrdia Urbana, que va protegir les excavadores desplegant un cordó d'antiavalots que, de moment, porta tot dilluns i dimarts. És possible que aquest sigui un primer pas cap al desalltojament del Parc; així que es convoca una manifestació dijous 5 a les 19 en defensa del parc conquerit a través de sis anys de mobilització veïnal.

Alerta en el Forat de la Vergonya

A las 8 de la mañana del lunes 2 de octubre dos excavadoras entraron a la pista de baloncesto del Forat con la intención de abrir paso a unas tuberías que pasarían por la calle Jaume Giralt. El acuerdo que se había logrado con la Concejalía preveía que no se tocaría para nada el terreno del parque del Forat; por esto se pidió al director de la obra que parara. Como respuesta, este llamó a la Guardia Urbana, que protegió las excavadoras desplegando un cordón de antidisturbuios que, por el momento, lleva todo el lunes y martes. Es posible que este sea un primer paso para el desalojo del Parque; así se convoca una manifestación el jueves 5 a las 19 en defensa del parque conquistado a través de seis años de mobilización vecinal.

Residents Celebrate as National City Becomes Sanctuary

San Diego, 03.10.2006 20:38

Early in September, Mayor Nick Inzunza announced that he intended to proclaim National City a sanctuary from the harassment and collaboration between local officials and federal immigration enforcement that have been springing up in other cities, such as Vista and Escondido. On Saturday, 350 residents and supporters gathered at city hall to celebrate. Last weekend, at an anti-sanctuary protest in National City shut down by 300 sanctuary supporters, minutemen were filmed assaulting and pepper-spraying members of the Boredom Patrol of the Clandestine Rebel Insurgent Clown Army.

From Leslie Radford:
"National City today thumbed its nose at Congress and skipped through the streets. It had declared itself a haven for people of foreign descent, even as the federal government intensifies mass roundups and deportations, and neighboring cities legitimate ethnic profiling. The proclamation, signed by Mayor Nick Inzunza, adds National City to a roster that includes big cities: San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and small: Maywood, Pomona, Huntington Park, Coachella."

From Miguel:
"As the rally came to an end, pro-Sanctuary supporters provided musical accompaniment while Rebel Clown Army members danced in the street to the lyrics of "Canta y no llores, porque cantando se alegran cielito lindo los corazones" - Sing don't cry, with song our hearts feel happy my darling - reflecting the sunny disposition of the Mexican people in contrast to the bitter hatred racists thrive on."

Portland CopWatch Urges D.A. Shrunk in Chasse Case

Portland, 03.10.2006 13:38

On Monday, October 2, Portland Copwatch, a grassroots organization promoting police accountability through citizen action, sent a letter to Multnomah County District Attorney Michael Schrunk urging an "aggressive and thorough" presentation of the in-police-custody death of James Chasse Jr. to the grand jury.

The jury, which meets tomorrow, will be deciding whether the officers involved in the case should be indicted on criminal charges in Chasse's death.

Portland Copwatch points out that the reports published to date imply that the officers could at least be charged with criminally negligent homicide.

Is Britain ready to defend its NHS?

United Kingdom, 03.10.2006 13:09

The National Health Service is in a huge crisis. Crisis can be an over-used word, but in the case of the NHS it’s difficult to get across the scale of the problem without using it. Three quarters of the NHS trusts in the UK are reporting that financial deficits are forcing them to make cutbacks. Massive cutbacks that is. Wards are closed down, hospitals shut and jobs cut around the country. Billions are going to restructure the NHS along market lines, with millions going on management consultants and financial advisors, and millions more in massive PFI payments to shareholders and bankers. In one example venture capitalists have pocketed an extra £81m million in profits from the £220 million PFI scheme to build the Norfolk and Norwich hospital. Billions more are being diverted into a new, expanding private network of profit-seeking 'Treatment Centres', which are paid at enhanced rates, and select out the profitable treatments and patients, leaving the unprofitable behind in the NHS.

Over the last few months unions, patients, activists and campaigners have hit back in a wave of protest to halt the NHS reforms around the country. Thousands of people took part in public meetings around the country: [1] [2] [3] [4]. Protestors took to the streets in Birmingham, Cambridge [1] [2], Huddersfield, Liverpool, Manchester [1] [2], Oxford, Sheffield, Shropshire and Stamford. Other protests have happened in Morecambe Bay, Bristol, the Costwolds and Wolverhampton. The largest demonstration took place in Nottingham and was joined by over 3,000 people. After the announcement that the government has awarded a £1.5 billion NHS contract to Germany-based courier DHL, NHS Logistics staff walked out at their depots.

Launch of Bath Activist Network

Bristol, 03.10.2006 09:37

and other ventures... summary In recent years there have been attempts to move beyond the narrow confines of single issue and sectional politics, towards more broad based platforms where ideas can be more readily shared, and campaigns merged. The launch of the Bath Activist Network is the latest example of this. Pink writes: Birth pangs of a new group, the Bath Activist Network, bringing together people in Bath who want to work together to fight for positive change, connecting all radical "disciplines" holistically, knowing that every problem in this world is interlinked. We hold monthly meetings at the Green Park Tavern, first Thursday of every month, 7.30 to 9.00. Meetings are to be organised in the usual non-hierarchic pattern and anyone interested in real progress is encouraged to attend. Things still very much in its infancy at the moment, but we are looking at critical mass, anti-arms action and resisting supermarket development, right now... Full ArticleThe Roots Of Change Group is also now in formation. Rooter writes: I'm trying to find out if there are people in Bristol who are interested in coming along to a Roots of Change group. Roots of Change is a study programme run by the International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC). ISEC describes the aims thus: · To encourage a broad analysis of the origins and workings of the global economy · To promote discussion of the impact of globalisation on participants' own communities and around the world · To empower groups to take strategic local action informed by a global perspective.

Resist Corporate Climate Change and Support Oaxaca

San Diego, 03.10.2006 04:38

The elite of the richest countries are reaping huge profits from dangerous climate change while placing the burden on the most economically disadvantaged, rolling the dice with our life support systems in pursuit of higher profits. The eight richest countries in the world, the G8, plus five developing countries are meeting in Mexico City this week to agree to invest trillions to prop up the fossil fuel economy and to promote carbon trading, which we already know doesn’t work and will just shift the burden further to the Global South. Local activist groups with international participation are poised to resist the G8+5 meeting.

At the same time, President of Mexico Vincente Fox is preparing to send his stormtroopers to attack the Popular Assemblies of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO), who have been occupying parts of Oaxaca City for over four months to demand the ouster of governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz - a corrupt frontman for corporate globalization - and the release of political prisoners.

Corporate-driven, neoliberal climate change. Corporate-driven, neoliberal suppression of resistance movements for democracy and local control. Different problem. Same enemy.
