Shell Garage Demo on Climate Change

Bristol, 25.10.2006 09:38

M32 Garage Roof Occupied, No arrests. M32 Garage Roof Occupied, No arrests. As Shell spends £3.7bn to buy out Canadian oil sands operation, a move seen by some as a step towards a £230bn mega-merger with BP, The Sea writes: a protest aimed at exposing oil corporatations ongoing commitment to seeking profit over reducing oil dependency to deal with climate change, activists occupied the M32 Shell Service station. Three People occupied the roof for around three hours, whilst about another dozen handed out leaflets and indulged in some in promptu street theatre....A small sound system kept things lively and a couple of passers by joined in with the protest. The police presence reached it’s peak at three squad cars, though even the law couldn’t control The Sea, who defied the Canute – like officers, washing over the forecourt due to rising sea levels....This is part of a on going campaign, which partly gained it’s impetus from the Climate Camp held in Yorkshire...Full article| Climate Protesters Occupy Shell Garage | | Shell Demo Video (.mov) |

Castor 2006: Energiepolitik wird hier verhandelt

Germany, 25.10.2006 09:11

Am 10. November startet in Valogne (Nordfrankreich) ein Zug mit zwölf Castor-Behältern. Gegen diesen inzwischen 10. Transport von Atommüll ins Zwischenlager Gorleben machen Gruppen aus der anti-Atom-Bewegung und aus den g8-Zusammenhängen seit Wochen mit Aktionen und Aufrufen mobil. Auch wenn es mittlerweile zu einem lokalen Ereignis heruntergebeamt zu sein scheint: Die Proteste gegen Atomanlagen, stellvertretend ausgetragen zwischen La Hague und Gorleben, werden in der Politik und den Energiekonzernen aufmerksam registriert. Daß sie nur noch als “polizeiliches Problem” in den bürgerlichen Medien rübergebracht werden, hat mehr damit zu tun, daß der staatliche Umgang mit Protesten veränderten Strategien folgt, und weniger damit, daß es materiell einen Bedeutungsverlust gäbe.

Am 4. November ist Demo in Biblis. | Am 4. November ist Demo in Brunsbüttel.

Am 11. November findet in Gorleben die große Kundgebung gegen den Castor-Transport statt. Ab dem 10. November rollt der Castor von La Hague nach Gorleben. Oder er rollt nicht!

WBAI election - what's at stake

NYC, 24.10.2006 23:41

WBAI - a unique alternative radio voice for over 40 years - is not doing well. It is losing members. Response to fund drives gets worse every year. It owes money to the parent Pacifica foundation. Yet the Local Station Board (LSB), charged with station oversight, does very little. It looks as if the members of the "Justice and Unity" slate - the majority of the LSB - prefer to protect certain powers at the station rather try to help it become healthy again.

South Bronx Residents Oppose Planned Jail

NYC, 24.10.2006 12:08

In a town hall meeting that opened with community leaders pledging opposition to the planned construction of a new correctional facility in the South Bronx and ended with boisterous, passionate chants of “No more jails!,” local residents and activists unequivocally expressed their opposition to the planned prison to New York City Department of Correction Commissioner Martin Short, who insisted that a new jail in the Bronx was needed to replace aging facilities on Rikers Island. The meeting, organized by Community in Unity, a coalition of fifteen Bronx community organizations, was called to demand transparency and accountability in the planning process and to offer alternatives to the proposed 2,000-bed facility, which has raised the ire of some members of the Hunts Point community, who have criticized the city for excluding them from the planning and question the value of building yet another jail.

Starbucks is anti-bicycle

Portland, 24.10.2006 11:08

30 year-old Northeast Portland resident Fabian Mills used to manage the Starbucks store on 102nd and Halsey near the Gateway Transit Center.

Back in August he rode his bike to a district meeting and got a surprising reaction from his new district manager, Frances Ericson. Here's how it went down according to Mills:

Four days after this conversation took place Ericson transferred Mills to a new store in Troutdale at 257th and Stark. Mills was unhappy with the decision because the transfer would add 16 miles to his daily bike commute.

When Mills expressed his disappointment with the move, Ericson allegedly said, "you should just get over riding your bike."

Portland, 24.10.2006 11:08

Hey folks,

On Thursday 26th of October I will be at the WTC building, THAT IS WHERE OUR "Centaur" Smith does hide. I will be handing out copies of the Bill of Rights. I will be calling for Mr. Smith or one of his staff to come out to talk about why he gave bush the right to arrest and disappear any citizen of this great nation called America. Come and join me, this is the end of Mr. Smith as a senator from the state of Oregon. Mr. Smith is a traitor and should be called out---want to take a ride, want to make the man who acts like cheney, (does have more hair) uncomfortable? Bring copies of the Bill of Rights and your soul. Well, that's all folks!

Local group I.D's dangerous security flaw in City's voter registration database

Chicago, 24.10.2006 05:08

Members of the Illinois Ballot Integrity Project have discovered a serious security vulnerability in the City of Chicago's online voter registration database that could allow an identity pirate to obtain the names, addresses, birth dates and Social Security numbers of more than 1.5 million Chicago voters. The discovery comes on the heels of a series of problems — and growing concerns — about the integrity of Chicago's electronic voting protocals and procedures.

IBIP notified staff at the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners several weeks ago about the vulnerability — estimated to require a five-minute fix — but no action was taken. Late last week, IBIP determined that the security breach was more severe than first thought and again notified the Board, which began taking action to alleviate the threat last Friday. Read more

Portland, 23.10.2006 19:38

" With a few weeks left until election day .. I'm about to travel throughout the Valley to set the record straight. Ted Kulongoski is a weak and vacillating politician who has attempted to woe the progressive community with empty words about the war in Iraq, the environment, good government, and ... . energy independence. These are empty political words ... he has made a mockery of these vital issues. I doubt if any voter believes Kulongoski, if reelected, will follow through on ... political promises... it is important for a leader to be truthful ... . Oregonians deserve better." ----- Joe Keating Green Party candidate for governor.

Joe Keating will be touring the state to give major policy speeches, addressing issues with the intelligence and warmth Oregonians deserve. Instead of finding the lowest common denominator to be elected, Keating has lead with his commitment to the people and state he will serve as governor.
