Hummer Dealership Shut Down

United Kingdom, 20.10.2006 19:09

On the 16th October around 40 individuals shut down the Bauer Millettes hummer dealership in Manchester town centre. The eco-activists headed down to the SUV garage in various states of attire to highlight the link between our unseasonably warm weather and the emissions of the polluting 11 miles per gallon SUVs.

A banner saying “Stop urban 4x4s” was dropped from the tram bridge overhead. Several others entered the forecourt and attached themselves to the front of vehicles, one lay covered in fake blood a casualty of the killer hummer. The other activists dressed as clown soldiers, pixies, a gas-masked bride, Tony Blair, a skeleton, Marylin Monroe with a half burnt American flag, the yuppies and various generically-modified hippies infiltrated the garage then bounced around the £50K+ luxury soft tops and SUVS.

What Lies Beneath Shell's Wild Lie?

United Kingdom, 20.10.2006 19:09

Shell is the third largest oil company in the world. It is also the new sponsor of the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. On wednesday 18th of October, as guests began to queue up outside the museum's main gates for the awards opening ceremony, London Rising Tide activists turned up armed with banners, boiler suits, animal costumes and a Shell Wildlie counter-exhibition, all bent on ending Shell’s sponsorship deal with the Natural History Museum [Report and Photos]

The action was received with wide support by the assembled crowd. Many agreed to register their disgust once inside the museum, and to sign up to London Rising Tide's statement opposing the sponsorship deal.

V de Vivloĝejo kaj Vero

La veraj kialoj kaj la ŝajnaj neniam samas kiam ni parolas politike. La pintkunveno de eŭropaj ministroj pri loĝejo estis prokrastita 'oficiale' pro sekurigaj kialoj kaj por ne koincidi kun la komenco de la kataluna balotkampanjo. Sed preter la litanio de la tradiciaj amaskomunikiloj kuŝas la Vero. Montri milfoje la bildojn de raketĵetila tubo apud MACBA daŭre aludante la 'malbonecon de la kontraŭsistemuloj' estas nova ekzemplo de profesia ĵurnalismo sinpretende rigora kaj objektiva sed tute demagogia kiu sendistinge etiketas kaj kriminaligas la diversajn kaj heterogenajn sociajn movadojn kaj ilies luktojn. Post la surstratiĝo de miloj da homoj por feste protesti kontraŭ la politikoj pri loĝejo kaj du semajnojn antaŭ la balotoj por la kataluna parlamento, la situacio estis tre klara: la politikistaro, la entreprenistaro, la financistaro kaj la amaskomunikilaj korporacioj ne povis akcepti ke miloj da homoj aperadus sur la televidoj el duona mondo por protesti ekster la pintkunvenejo. Ĉar klare kaj publike videblus la perverseco de la leĝo pri la tereno aŭ de la leĝo pri konstruo kaj la hontiga politiko pri loĝejo farita far la katalunaj kaj hispanaj politikistoj (kiu ebligas la subitajn enriĉiĝojn de la konstruistoj kaj la financadon de la politikaj partioj preskaŭ mafistile) kaj eĉ ilia nulega intereso por solvi la problemojn. Ne temas pri kiom da subvenciitaj apartamentoj oni konstruas (ankaŭ je nepageblaj prezoj) aŭ pri lotado de malmultekostaj apartamentoj (kvazaŭ ni devus rezigni niajn bazajn rajtojn por partopreni en lotado) sed pri restrukturado de la loĝeja merkato (kune kun la leĝoj pri konstruo kaj pri la tereno) por malebligi ke la loĝejo, baza rajto, daŭre estu merkataĵo. La Vero, do, ne estas la timo al la tumultoj, ĉar la policistaro havas rimedojn por garantii la sekurecon de la kunveno, sed estas la timo al la Vero kaj al tio ke ĝi atingos la civitanaron: estas neniu intereso por solvi la problemon kaj oni nur volas eviti sinceran debaton pri tiu temo je kiomajna kosto. Pro tio, nun pli ol ĉiam V, V de Vivloĝejo kaj Vero.

>>> Konfirmitaj la protestoj programitaj por lundo la 16a de Oktobro:

:: je la 17a h. apud metrostacio Zona Universitària L3: simbola ago je la pintkunvenejo.
:: je la 20a h. en Plaça Sant Jaume: amasiĝo, kaserolprotesto, informejo...
:: Komuniko de la popola asembleo pro loĝejo de Barcelono responde al la prokrasto de la pintkunveno de eŭropaj ministroj pri loĝejo.

Remembering the Dead and Fighting for the Living

United States, 20.10.2006 17:07

Early this morning, the latest casualty of the Texas death machine was reported -- Michael Johnson opted to take his own life rather than allow the state to kill him. Like many death row inmates, Michael maintaind he was innocent.

This tragedy comes amidst an upsurge in rememberance and resistance to the death penalty -- on both sides of the prison walls.

Tonight, Houston's Rice Cinema hosts a screening of "Chronicle of an Execution" -- a documentary about the last days of Frances Newton, executed by the state of Texas a year ago. The screening will be followed by a public discussion, “Is America Ready to End the Death Penalty?" facilitated by Renee Feltz, Co-founder of KPFT Local News. [Details]

This month in Philadelphia, the A-Space is showcasing an exhibit by California prison artist Kakamia Jahad Imarisha. Kakamia decided to dedicated his show to the memory of prison organizer Hasan Shakur, who was executed by the state of Texas on August 31. Shakur was an organizer and community-builder while in jail, founding the Texas chapter of the Human Rights Coalition, a Philadelphia-based organization dedicated to empowering prisoners and their families to speak out against the prison-industrial complex. Since his death the Human Rights Coalition has worked to gather testimonies and art work from other prisoners who are mourning the death of Shakur: Haramia KiNassor | Charles Mamou Jr. | Drawing to the left by Rashid, SCI Pittsburg | More info on the show: 1 | 2

First Group Accused over Price Hikes

Bristol, 20.10.2006 09:37

Worst Group's Bus Fares Exposed "..the price paid by bus companies for their fuel has risen by just 6%. In contrast, many fares have almost doubled in Bristol in the same period." Bus User writes: A new report by First Group's own lobbying organisation has blown its cover on the city's fares hikes. Bristol bus operator FirstGroup has always mounted a vigorous defence of its rocketing fares in the city. But the excuses given for the price hikes have hardly been consistent. Five years ago it was the council's fault for not tackling congestion. But once First started to get the council on board with a multi-million pound programme to install bus lanes, it became the fault of those pesky expensive drivers. But once the company started hiring budget polish labour, it was the insurance industry that was putting them out of business. Then, once it was pointed out that the traffic commissioner were asking serious questions about the roadworthiness of the fleet, it was time to blame that old favourite...fuel prices. But this week, a report produced by CPT, the lobbying body set up by the public transport industry contains some revealing truths. For example, we now know that in the last six years, the price paid by bus companies for their fuel has risen by just 6%. In contrast, many fares have almost doubled in Bristol in the same period.Full article| Worst Group's Bus Fares Exposed | More Reclaim the Buses demo pics | Wirst employees hijack reclaim the buses rally | Buses join reclaim the bus protest | www.reclaimthebuses.org | Report: The bus industry - encouraging local delivery | First Group: 2006 results | "A report out today reveals bus use is booming..." |



Chasse Killer's Lies Exposed

Portland, 20.10.2006 07:38

The Apologists and the DA, who presented the "facts" to the grand jury forgot to edit officer Humphrey's statement.

As can be seen from this exerpt of Humprhey's statement to investigators, he did not, as claimed, fall upon poor Jim, causing the crushed chest and spinal injuries. While he did not admit to a knee drop on James' chest, he also totally denied falling upon him. [ read more ]

James Chasse's Family Speaks, Channel Twelve does not listen.

Mark Chasse openned the remarks, stating the family's reaction. His father invited the community to the peace vigil mentioned elsewhere on site. He also eexpressed gratitude to the people.

The attorney stated that, just like in the case of the murder of Fouad Kaady, and all other murders by cop, no cooperation was received from the cops. Only a stone wall. He argued at length about the "facts" as reported by the cops, and how aggregiously innacurate and inhuman the cops were. [ read more ]

James Chasse

The Grand Jury has decided that the officers involved are not criminally responsible for their actions. I do not agree with this. The officers are sorry, the mayor is sorry, the police chief is sorry, everyone is sorry. But still there is no justice. Next week there will be actions not just to commemorate his life but to demand justice for his death. Whether his death was accidental or intentional, sanctioned by the government or not, the man deserves justice, and we, the people of Portland, will try to assure that he recives it. Stay tuned for details. [ read more ]

U.S. Sends Warships to Iran, Pre-Election Attack Possible

Portland, 20.10.2006 06:38

Even as North Korea conducted a nuclear weapons test, setting-off worldwide condemnation, the Bush administration had deployed a naval strike group to the Straits of Hormuz off the Iranian coast. The war ships, scheduled to arrive in the Straits on Oct. 21, include the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier U.S.S. Eisenhower, a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, submarine and supply ship. The mission of this armada is not known, but there are reports that angry naval officers within the Eisenhower Strike Group have told antiwar retired officers that their ships are being sent to launch a military attack against Iran.

There is no confirmation that President Bush has ordered such an attack and it could be a bluff designed to intimidate Iran. But if an October attack is carried out, the timing suggests that influencing the outcome of the November congressional election -- where Republicans are on the ropes -- may be a primary strategic goal. Critics warn that such a U.S. pre-emptive strike against Iran's nuclear research facilities would likely set off a wider war inside Iraq and throughout the Middle East, where Iran's allies are capable of launching counterattacks against U.S. targets.



Officers indicted elsewhere

Portland, 20.10.2006 06:38

Like many of you, I was upset and saddened by the lack of indictment for the officers who beat and killed Jim Chasse. I wondered about other cities and other incidents of police abuse, so Googled for information. One article I found came from Cicero, Illinois where three officers actually have been indicted. They had already shown a pattern of abuse, the city having settled claims with citizens injured by these officers. The indictments came after allegations concerning a man they beat during a traffic stop. They broke his nose and then beat the man again at the police station. They then told the victim to wipe up the blood with his own shirt.

In a second incident, a woman was pulled over on a traffic stop. They began beating her and then noticed a man passing by making a video tape of their actions and ended up pulling him over too and beating him, ruining his camera. All of this was reported in the Chicago Tribune by Jeff Coen and Sara Olkon.

Labor 'Felon': What the Fall of Assemblyman McLaughlin Means For the Union Movement

NYC, 20.10.2006 03:08

Assemblyman Brian McLaughlin (D - Flushing) used to be the most powerful labor leader in New York City. Head of the New York City Central Labor Council, business agent for the street light electricians and all around power broker, McLaughlin was once the city's top union chief. Now, he's under a 44 count racketeering indictment, accused of stealing $ 2.2 million dollars and out on $ 250,000 bail. What does this mean for New York City union members?

Mr. Smith has voted with the pretender to the Presidency on every important decision that has caused all of us such pain, my tears are now just water for outrage.

Come out Mr. Smith, you have had people arrested who have gone to your office. Their crime of trying to deliver a petition to an elected official is now unlawful behavior. You hide in your glass tower called the WTO building hoping no one will notice how much of a coward you are---come out Mr. Smith.



AUDIO FILE: The Internet at Risk

Portland, 19.10.2006 10:38

At a Press Conference today, October 18, 2006, held at Powell's Books on West Burnside in Portland, Senator Ron Wyden spoke about Network Neutrality and the fight in Congress over the future of the internet. He was joined by local business owners and concerned citizens who delivered more than 20,000 petitions from Oregon residents supporting Net Neutrality.

Net Neutrality is the longstanding principle that ensures all Web sites and services are treated equally. This fundamental principle, in place since the Internet was created, prevents Internet service providers from discriminating against content or services traveling over their wires based on which companies pay them the most.
