Stewart Supporters Rally on Eve of Sentencing

NYC, 16.10.2006 01:08

One day before Lynne Stewart is scheduled to be sentenced for providing “material support” to terrorists, several hundred supporters, family members, and colleagues of the radical activist lawyer rallied at Riverside Church Sunday evening in a spirited demonstration of solidarity and support. Standing before a banner reading, “We love you Lynne, and everything you stand for,” they celebrated Stewart’s dedication to human rights and urged leniency and mercy in the judge’s decision, which they hoped would result in a non-custodial sentence.

V de Vivenda i de Veritat (V for Housing and for Truth)

Actual and apparent causes never fit in when we talk in a political level. The Housing Ministries Summit has been delayed "officially" by means of security and to not interfere with the start of Catalan election campaign. But beyond the traditional mass media's sting there is the truth. The rocket launcher image showed a thousand times in relation with the "evilness of antisystem" is a sign of a pretended rigorous and objective journalism full of demagogy that labels generically and criminalizes the diverse and heterogeneous social movements and their respective struggles. After getting thousands of people to the streets in festive demonstrations against housing policies and with Catalan Parliament elections in two weeks, the situation was crystal clear: the politic class, the businessmen, finance companies and information corporations couldn't accept to see thousands of people in the TVs of half the world protesting outside summit's enclosure. Because the land's law perversity, the urbanistic law and the disgraceful housing policy of Catalan and Spanish politicians, where urban "pelotazos", the parties financing in a sheer Sicilian way and the complete absence of any interest into solving the problem would be too evident to Public Opinion. It's not a matter of building more or less state subsidized houses (which are also at unaffordable prices) neither is a question of raffling cheap flats (as if we have to renounce our basic rights to play the lottery) but to structurally reform the property market (as well as urban and land laws) to prevent that housing, a basic right, continue being a merchandise. So the truth is not that they fear for the disturbances, the FSE have the means to guarantee the summit's security, but the fear to truth and that it could arrive and catch on citizenship: There's no politic interest in solving the problem and they wish to avoid the sincere debate on this matter at any cost. Because of this, now more than ever V, for Housing and for Truth.

>>> The Monday Oct. 16 prepared demonstrations will be held anyway:

:: 17h outside Zona Universitària (L3) tube station: symbolic act on Summit's place.
:: 20h Sant Jaume Square: gathering, saucepan-banging, information point...
:: barcelona popular assembly for a decent home Communique in response to the delay of EU housing ministries summit.

V de Vivenda i de Veritat

Les causes reals i les causes aparents mai no coincideixen quan parlem a nivell polític. La Cimera de ministres europeus d'habitatge ha estat ajornada per motius "oficials" de seguretat i per no interferir en el començament de la campanya electoral catalana. Però més enllà de la lletania dels mass media tradicionals hi ha la Veritat. Treure les imatges del tub llançacohets al Macba mil i un cops amb referències constants a la "maldat dels antisistema" és una mostra més d´un periodisme professional pretesament rigorós i objectiu ple de demagògia que etiqueta genèricament i criminalitza els diferents i heterogenis moviments socials i les seves respectives lluites. Després de treure al carrer milers de persones per protestar festivament per les polítiques d'habitatge i a dues setmanes de les eleccions al parlament de Catalunya la situació era ben clara: la classe política, empresaris, financers i les corporacions informatives no podien païr que milers de persones sortissin a les TV´s de mig món protestant a fora del recinte de la cimera. Perquè la perversitat de la llei del sòl, la llei urbanística i la Vergonyosa política d'habitatge dels polítics catalans i espanyols on els "pelotazos" urbanístics, el finançament al més pur estil sicilià dels partits polítics i l´absència total de cap tipus d´interès per sol-lucionar el problema quedaria massa evident als ulls de l´opinió pública. No és questió de construir més o menys habitatges de protecció oficial (també a preus inassequibles) ni de sortejar pisos barats (com si haguéssim de renunciar als drets fonamentals per a participar en una loteria) sinó de reformar estructuralment el mercat inmobiliari (juntament amb les lleis d'urbanisme i del sòl) per impedir que l'habitatge, un dret fonamental, continui essent una mercaderia. Així que la Veritat no és la por als aldarulls, les FSE tenen mitjans per garantir la seguretat de la cimera, sinó la por a la Veritat i que aquesta arribi i cali a la ciutadania: No hi ha cap interès polític per resoldre el problema i es vol evitar un debat sincer sobre la qüestió costi el que costi. Per tant, ara més que mai V, de Vivenda i de Veritat.

>>> Es mantenen les protestes previstes pel dilluns 16 Oct:

:: 17h en parada del Metro Zona Universitària L3: acte simbòlic al lloc de la cimera.
:: 20h Plaça Sant Jaume: concentració, cassolada, punt informatiu...

V de Vivienda y de Verdad

Las causas reales y las causas aparentes nunca coinciden cuando hablamos a nivel político. La Cumbre de ministros europeos de la vivienda ha sido aplazada por motivos "oficiales" de seguridad y por no interferir con el comienzo de la campaña electoral catalana. Pero más allá de la letanía de los mass media tradicionales hay la Verdad. Sacar las imágenes del tubo lanzacohetes al Macba mil y una veces con referencias constantes a la "maldad de los antisistema" es una muestra más de un periodismo profesional pretendidamente riguroso y objetivo lleno de demagogia que etiqueta genéricamente y criminaliza a los diferentes y heterogéneos movimientos sociales y sus respectivas luchas. Tras sacar a la calle a miles de personas para protestar festivamente contra las políticas de vivienda y a dos semanas de las elecciones al parlamento de Cataluña la situación era bien clara: La clase política, empresarios, financieros y las corporaciones informativas no podían aceptar que miles de personas saliesen en las TV´s de medio mundo protestando fuera del recinto de la reunión. Porque la perversidad de la ley del suelo, la ley urbanística y la Vergonzosa política de Vivienda de los políticos catalanes y españoles con sus "pelotazos" urbanísticos, financiación al más puro estilo siciliano de los partidos políticos y la ausencia total de ningún tipo de interés por solucionar el problema quedaría demasiado expuesta cara la opinión pública. No es cuestión de construir más o menos vivienda de protección oficial (también a precios inasequibles) ni de sortear pisos baratos (como si tuviéramos que renunciar a los derechos fundamentales para participar en una lotería) sino de reformar estructuralmente el mercado inmobiliario (junto con las leyes de urbanismo y del suelo) para impedir que la vivienda, un derecho fundamental, continúe siendo una mercancía. La Verdad no es el miedo a los disturbios, las FSE tienen medios por garantizar la seguridad de la reunión cumbre, sino el miedo a la Verdad y que esta llegue y cale en la opinión pública: No hay ningún interés político por resolver el problema y se quiere evitar un debate sincero sobre la cuestión a toda costa. Por lo tanto, ahora más que nunca V, de Vivienda y de Verdad.

>>> Se mantienen las protestas previstas para el lunes 16 Oct:

:: 17h en parada del Metro Zona Universitària L3: acto simbólico en el lugar de la cumbre.

Santa Cruz Coffee Shop Owner At It Again

Santa Cruz, CA, 15.10.2006 09:38

Tim Rumford writes, "On September 26th, Shane Maxfield sat close to LuLu Carpenters, legally, ten feet away from the property with a sign. This day he needed propane for warmth. Shane was there for about an hour when Manthri Srinath, owner of LuLu Carpenters, came out and ordered him off the mall. He then got right in Shane's face and began a rant of threats and abusive language."

Ulises Gives A Face to Corruption

Santa Cruz, CA, 15.10.2006 06:09

Oaxaca City, Mexico - These days there is alot of speculation and rumor, waiting for the outcome of the negotiations happening far away in Mexico City. There are propositions, leaked deals, and infinite possibilities, with some impatience, too. But nothing is concrete yet. Each side has a central demand, but at this point it isn´t clear whether a deal can be made: APPO and the people of Oaxaca have made perfectly clear that Governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz (URO) cannot remain in power, since he has not been in power for several months now. Any step forward depends on his resignation, voluntary or otherwise.

The Discriminatory Asylum Vouchers

United Kingdom, 14.10.2006 19:08

Over 5,000 'failed asylum seekers' in the UK receive £35-a-week vouchers instead of cash for their NASS support under Section 4 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, despite concerted efforts by the Home Office to open routes of enforced and 'voluntary' return to get rid of them. The so-called "hard-case support" claimants are stigmatised, demeaned and discriminated against on a daily basis. Yet, the House of Commons have recently debated extending the use of vouchers for more asylum seekers, 4 years after the original Asylum Voucher Scheme was abolished following huge public pressure [1 | 2] and a lot of criticism.

Community under siege in Mayo

United Kingdom, 14.10.2006 16:39

Since late 2000 there has been an on-going attempt by multinationals and the Irish state to devastate a remote coastal area of county Mayo with a toxic refinery and a high pressure production gas pipeline. Since the summer of 2005 mass pickets shut down the refinery construction site after five residents were imprisoned for refusing to allow Shell’s sub-contractors access to their and their neighbours small farms which the pipeline is to go through.

In August Shell announced that they intended to re-take the site in September, however during that month over a hundred people would gather at the gates when ever there was indications that such an attempt was to be made. Shell failed in September, but on the third of October a massive two hundred strong police unit forced a path for Shell. This week there have been sporadic sit down blockades of construction traffic and solidarity protests have taken place in locations across Britain and Ireland.

Short Update. Animal Rights Grand Jury

Some people wanted an update from San Francisco on the AR Grand Jury.

Ariana was subpoenaed before the grand jury with supporters rallying outside before hand and with some waiting in the cold marble halls of injustice while she was being questioned. She invoked her constitutional rights, and declined to answer the grand jury's questions. It is unknown at this point how the government will proceed.

Nadia also went before the grand jury and invoked her constitutional rights. She filed a motion
for disclosure of unlawful electronic surveillance. This motion was recently denied. She is also unsure as to what the government's next steps are going to be.

In a year where the data retention law -which threatens privacy on the net and freedom of speech- has been passed, and where the implantation of European directive on Copyright and DRM technology -which allows big corporations and copyright lobbies to control the data information flow- have begun, the hacker community has carried out several actions of call in favour of free culture with free technology, has also continued developing free tools and licenses and continue meeting to share, to experience and to free spaces.
This year, the Hackmeeting seventh edition takes place in Mataró, synchronizing broadcast with other meetings, with the wish to struggle and to research for freeing knowledge sharing spaces, to recover an ecological balance with biosphere and technosphere and to face the new technopolitic challenges that are already here.

Impending Massacre in Chiapas Mexico

IMC-Philly Correspondent Reports from San Cristobal



Oct 11--Tension is mounting in this community under siege, harassed by the constant sight and sound of low flying government planes and helicopters, and news of troops and paramilitaries gathering at the outskirts of town. The word is that the Mexican Army will invade any day now to forcibly remove the entire community. This particular battle is taking place in the village of Chol de Tumbala , an indigenous community in Northern Chiapas.



Oct 12--The Chols are about to face eviction, for the second time, from the ancestral lands they have struggled over the past decade to get a legal claim to. Today the San Cristobal based human rights organization, the Centro de Derechos Humanos Fray Bartolome de las Casas (CDHFBLC), which monitors and promotes the human rights of poor people in the region, made a public appeal to the state government not to use force against the Zapatistas camped in Chol de Tumbala.

Lettuce Recall Prompts Calls For More Oversight of California Produce Industry

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.10.2006 19:08

Last month's outbreak of E-Coli contaminated spinach, which killed three, and sickened 199 others in the US, has many consumers on edge about food born pathogens. It was the ninth deadly E. coli outbreak from leafy greens that originated in California's Salinas Valley over the last decade. Another e.coli scare occurred this week when Salinas-based Nunes Co. recalled some 8,500 cartons of its Foxy brand 'Green Leaf Lettuce' from seven states.



Examining Measure G, Santa Cruz's Wage Hike Ballot Initiative

San Francisco Bay Area, 13.10.2006 19:08

Congress has repeatedly failed to bump up the minimun wage, and since 1997 it has remained at $5.15/hr. Since then, 19 states and 3 cities, have raised base pay rates higher than the federal minimum, while scores more cities have enacted living wage laws for government contractors. This November, voters in Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, Nevada and Ohio will decide whether or not to raise their own hourly base pay. In Santa Cruz, CA the year's hottest election issue is Measure G, a city-wide proposal to raise the minimum wage to $9.25/hr.
