Eastcroft Incinerator Expansion - WRG lodge Appeal

United Kingdom, 17.10.2006 19:09

Nottingham Against Incineration and Landfill (NAIL) has received a letter from Waste Recycling Group (WRG) announcing that they have lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate, following the refusal of their planning application to expand Nottingham's Eastcroft incinerator. Click on the link below to view the letter;

We are all obviously very disappointed and angry that WRG in taking this approach, we believe that they should accept this democratic decision and not subject tax payers to an expensive legal challenge. WRG are attempting to use their power and financial might to overrule a democratic process. The people and political parties of Nottingham have clearly said NO and this has been reinforced by the Development and Control Committee decision last month. WRG now aim to force their plans on us, however we are determined more than ever to fight on.

VIDEO FILE: Cindy Sheehan Speaking in Portland

Portland, 17.10.2006 12:38

Cindy Sheehan, who lost a son to the war in Iraq, was in Portland in early October discussing her book, "Peace Mom: A Mother's Journey Through Heartache to Activism."

After a few preliminary comments, Cindy begins to speak about her book. "It was a very hard book for me to write, because it was like burying my son all over again." She then speaks about her meeting with Hilary Clinton, where she and another mother who lost her son in Iraq expressed their anguish over losing sons in a war she supported. She relates what she told Hillary: "when are you going to be a true Democrat, when are you going to be a true leader in Congress and speak out against this war."



Local band Western Aerial photo shoot and protest yesterday (10/16) at Schumacher Furs

Portland, 17.10.2006 12:38

Members of the local rock band Western Aerial joined with models solicited from myspace.com for a photo shoot at Schumaher Furs. Activists, fresh off the previous day's protest greeted the musicians and models as they arrived, 4:30-5 pm, with an appeal to say no to the fur industry, to say no to what they were helping promote, the cruelty inherent in the fur the hired help would be wearing.

The models proceeded to ignore the message as they entered the building and did their thing. One model after another put on her lingerie and draped herself in fur to have her picture taken. In a verbal exchange at the entrance to the store, IDA's Matt Rossell attempted to appeal to the photographer's compassionate side (if he has one) as he talked about the cruelty of the fur industry. The photographer's response was "I could give a fuck", which he repeated several times. That was early when there was still daylight. Later in the evening the photographer dropped his pants and mooned us (from inside the store), such class exhibited by this man. He also tossed a lit cigarette at an activist as the activists tried to engage him in constructive conversation on his cig break. Throughout the evening windows were gradually (and mostly) covered with large posters but there were still gaps for a view of the inside, and some video was recorded. There was a little comic relief as a model, who had a difficult time walking, took a dive.

From the Barricades: Oaxacan Teachers Speak

Santa Cruz, CA, 17.10.2006 08:38

danielsan has published an audio interview, in spanish, with two Oaxacan teachers recorded on October 14th, 2006, at La Ley Barricade which protects an occupied radio station in Oaxaca City. An english language transcript of the interview has been provided thanks to Emilyn, Ariel, & Daniel(san).

Audio (en español): Baje el mp3 (36:34 minutos / 33.5 MB)

During the interview, one of the teachers explains that, "The most valiant victory of this movement is what we're learning from it, those who are participating, and those who are watching too. Oaxaca will never be the same again, after all of this. Because the people know what it is, a popular struggle. They know what it costs--the blood spilled. They know the need of organizing themselves. People see the need to organize just to feed the barricades! To sustain them!" Read the full transcript

The National Day of Protest was initiated by a diverse coalition of organizations and individuals. We came together out of our concern that the peoples resistance to Police Brutality needed to be taken to a higher level nationwide.

The National Day of Protest aims to bring forward a powerful, visible, national protest against police brutality and the criminalization of a generation. It aims to expose the state's repressive program. It aims to bring forward those most directly under the gun of Police Brutality AND to also reach into all parts of the society--bringing forward others to stand in the fight against this official brutality. And the National Day of Protest aims to strengthen the peoples' organized capacity for resistance in a variety of ways.

Chicago Protesters Brave Cold for Bush Exorcism

Chicago, 16.10.2006 19:08

A post on the Guerrilla News Network reports: "Halloween came two weeks early for George W. Bush in Chicago. While the president wined and dined with representative Dennis Hastert and many of the Illinois Republican Party’s finest at $500 a plate to raise funds for this year’s election campaigns, a group of very cold, determined and creative protesters filled the designated “free speech zone” across the street from the Hilton on Michigan Avenue. Expounding on Hugo Chavez’ proclamation that Bush is the ‘devil’, the demonstration centered around the theme of exorcising him from the city and the overall country." Read more

Nottingham City Council - Climate Change Conference

United Kingdom, 16.10.2006 12:39

On 9 October I was hopeful and optimistic as I set off to the Nottingham City Council's climate change debate held in the council house. Unfortunately my optimisum faded rapidly.

My day started late as the bus didn't turn up as usual. I could have cycled but there's nowhere in the city to safely leave my bike. I eventually got in by bus which cost me considerably more than the using the more polluting option of driving by car. I then walked over the refurbished area in front of the council house covered in slabs imported from Spain and China. I passed two gas-guzzling chauffeur driven Bentley's for the Lord Mayor and his deputy.

URGENT APPEAL FOR SOLIDARITY WITH LEBANESE CIVIL SOCIETY

Beirut, 16.10.2006 11:37


The Israeli offensive against Lebanon is an act of aggression against the whole Lebanese people. The IOF (Israeli Occupation Forces) claims to be attacking an “infrastructure of terror”, but the attacks on bridges, roads, airports and ships are cutting the country into pieces, threatening to create a disastrous situation by impeding the transportation of food and medicines, and terrorizing everyone. Besides the hundreds killed and injured, thousands of people are fleeing the country, and thousands of people are fleeing from the areas where the bombing is heaviest into central Beirut. Even here in the “safe” parts of the city we can hear the bombs throughout the day and night, and electrical and water supplies are tenuous.

What is Root Force?

The Problem:
The Earth is being killed. We are losing cultural and biological diversity at Astounding Rates,and despite all our efforts,these rates are only accelerating. The Earth is being murdered by a global system that tortures and murders every human or nonhuman that it cannot dominate. This system kills hundreds of thousands a year in wars for oil and water. It tortures millions of nonhuman animals a year in laboratories and factory farms. It destroys indigenous communities, dispossesses small farmers, enslaves workers in fields and factories, and poisons every living thing with chemicals and radiation.

The question is, what are we going to do about it? Root Force is an innovative campaign making the connection between ecocide and Genocide, creating a framework in which diverse actions target those who enable oppression. this can be achieved by focusing on specific, winnable projects in Latin America. We invite you to come and support Root Force on our road tour.

Kim Thatcher people took down our 9-11 sign!

Portland, 16.10.2006 02:38

We got word from a friend that they saw the Kim Thatcher sign crew yesterday putting up a sign right next to ours...then they took our sign! Guess the folks from the Kim Thatcher campaign arent into free speech. So I am going to spend my day taking down and discarding Kim Thatcher signs. I dont even know what party she is from , or what she is running for.

CaptainPlanet adds: Kim Thatcher is a Republican from Keizer, running for re-election to House Dist. 25. Her campaign website. A search on her name turns up: campaign money improprieties, the Thatcher campaign removing campaign signs (placed with landowner permission) of a competitor, she reportedly said that only businesses pay taxes, and apparently every progressive organization (Stand for Children is one) opposes her. Just a sampling, I'll bet she's even more odious than all that.

The Changing Season: Now, It's Autumn

Portland, 16.10.2006 02:38

The autumn equinox turned the skies nearly a month ago now. Even then, the dry, yellowed grasses waved impassively in the still, warm air. The leaves, while glowing here and there with color, tended to crackle and fall from branches before lighting up the woods. The parched earth gave no indication that the summer had ended. Even the hazy yellow light hung in the air, rather than the crisp, golden light of fall. And we waited, and the world lazily waited. But now, it's autumn.

The first rains came trickling down some days back, and the slugs awakened. The first few wooly bears grubbed across the sun-warmed roadways shortly after. The crickets began chirping in the meadows, and the buzzing, droning, flying things of summer began seeking shelter. Ladybugs and boxelders began appearing on my windows yesterday, searching for the ways inside that all these old houses graciously provide for them. They will climb inside and gather together in great knots, somewhere out of sight, until the spring comes around again. And for now, they will sleep awhile.
