Stop aux abus de la politique migratoire suisse !

Switzerland, 31.10.2006 23:37

Il aura fallu qu'une jeune Ethiopienne de 16 ans soit battue, enlevée et puis violée dans son pays pour que son recours d'asile soit accepté en Suisse. Son acceptation a été décrétée, au cours de ce mois d'octobre, par la Commission Suisse de Recours en matière d'Asile (CRA), contrariant une décision de l'Office Fédéral de la Migration (ODM), qui avait refusé la demande d'asile de la jeune Ethiopienne en décembre 2005. Ce dernier fait est l'occasion de faire une vraie réflexion sur l'absence du critère de "sexe" dans les lois sur l'asile et les étrangers votées et acceptées le 24 septembre.

Stop Climate Change; Face the Reality of Consumption

Bristol, 31.10.2006 20:08

A Local View on THE Global Issue A Local View on THE Global Issue As the Stern hits the front pages, Crash writes: Reading the liberal press these days one could be forgiven for thinking that climate change is a problem that we all agree is serious, and which we now know can easily be fixed. Just a little tinkering at the edges of the economic system - sacrificing 1% of GDP - to avert climate chaos. What more could Blair and Brown want - a simple remedy to keep business as usual ticking along nicely....But quietly the scientists and a few radicals point out that joining this cosy consensus is like boarding a boat bound for disaster. The Stern report, for all its economic precision, fails to answer how a planet of finite resources can support demand for their infinite exploitation. Growth Unlimited (TM), and its demands on these finite resources is non-negotiable -- so the only way of squaring the circle is to continue to have future targets, rather than current measures to reduce energy use....And on a local level, the picture is more dismal: Bristol City Council merely aims to effectively stabilise emissions, never mind reduce them, while Growth Unlimited (TM) continues to be the cult worshipped at Bristol Airport...Full article| A storm astern | Climate Protesters Occupy Shell Garage | Shell Demo Video (.mov) | Support the Big Ask on Bristol City Council (legislation for 3% year on year cuts in greenhouse gas emissions) | | | | Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change |Contribute An Article - How To Contribute Articles - A Brief Guide

Giant Images Targeting BioTerror Lab Projected on Buildings in Downtown Boston

Boston, 31.10.2006 19:08

On Monday night, October 30th, members of The Stop the Biolab Coalition used "Light Cannons" to project giant images onto buildings in the downtown Boston area. They utilized this creative technology to expose the true costs of Boston University’s proposed BioSafety Lab Level 4 (BSL4). The 50 plus foot high photos and messages expressed concerns about the deadly germs, such as Ebola and Anthrax, that will be brought into Boston’s communities for use at the BSL4 in the Roxbury/South End area.

Banner drops along M1 link roads to climate chaos

United Kingdom, 31.10.2006 16:39

A mass amount of banners were hung from bridges across the M1 today. From Luton to Sheffield an alliance of groups opposing widening of the M1 motorway highlighted the disastrous consequences of widening it. The No Widening M1 Alliance, which includes representatives from communities along the whole route of the M1 due to be widened, are concerned about the environmental damage of widening the motorway, particularly climate change.

The protest happened on the day the Government delivers it's report on Climate Change. Climate activist voice that the 'Stern Report' stresses seriousness of climate change but offers false solutions.

Nuntempe ekzistas du malsamaj procesoj, la unuaj en la hispana ŝtato, kontraŭ du homoj ligitaj al la lukto kontraŭ la transgenaj produktoj en Katalunio. La prokuroro petas prizonon por unu el ili kaj la IRTA kaj la Universitato de Barcelono petas 500.000-eŭroan mon-punon por la alia. Tamen, kiun oni devus juĝi?! Kialoj por kondamni la Katalunan Registaron ne mankas al ni: pro sia politiko favora al la transgenaĵoj, pro la sistema kovrado de la genetikpoluadajn kazojn, pro la tuta neekzisto de kontrolaj planoj, ktp. Oni respondos al la kriminaliga kaj subprema strategio kontraŭ la kataluna rezistencaro al la altrudo de la transgenan agrokulturon; komence, renversante la proceson kontraŭ Albert.

Name the OHSU Shuttle Cars!

Portland, 31.10.2006 11:39

Here's your chance to let the city know just what you think of this endlessly expensive boondoggle.

This evening's news trumpeted more news about the multi-million dollar, expensive city boondoggle known as the OHSU tram . . . a project that benefits a minority of the population . . . far out of proportion to its cost.

May I suggest "Boon" and "Doggle"? The possibilities are endless. Suggestions?

Brunch With (The) Gordon

Portland, 31.10.2006 11:39

I arrived about 11:00 AM for my debate with Gordon Smith at his den on Salmon---Gordon did not show. I was met by his security people who were very professional and cool, it was obvious that the centaur was a no show and I would be debating from the outside of his den. Not to worry---I had a great time talking to other people and was joined by Veterans for Peace Chapter 72 and a student from one of the high schools. My sign had two sides to it, the main side said:



The other side showed the difference between war and peace and had to be looked at up close. We stayed until about 1:00 PM and had some fun at Gordon's expense. We did pass out copies of the Bill of Rights to people who looked interested in the sign.

Brad Will, IMC journalist murdered in Oaxaca

Rogue Valley, 31.10.2006 05:41

Here is Brad Will's last dispatch where he reports on the darkness that is all but ignored by the commercial news. His news report is testimony in and of itself as to the importance of independent media. Go light a candle for Brad Will. Long Live Independent Media!

Brad was an independent video journalist, a volunteer with the Independent Media Center in NYC. We have lost a journalist who helped shine light on news that is under-reported or not even told at all. Shame on the United States mainstream media for their corporate censorship when it comes to this 6 month long teacher and community struggle in Oaxaca, Mexico. So, so many don't even know. Were it not for imc reporters like Brad Will: No One Would Know.

Environmental Activists Protest Metro Plans to Recycle Sewer Sludge as Fertilizer

Tennessee, 31.10.2006 03:10

Nashville, TN: There is a new Metro Water & Sewer facility under construction and due to open in fall of 2007, and it is moving in the direction of recycling sludge as fertilizer to be applied on grazing land, cropland and orchards. Bruce Wood, an environmental activist, with Bring Urban Recycling to Nashville Today warns, "Do not be tricked into believing this is a treat. Citizens must educate themselves on this issue and demand that city leaders not allow this to happen." Members of BURNT, the Green Party and concerned citizens will gather on Tuesday October 31, 2006 at 3 p.m. at the Sewage Treatment Facility, Metro Water Department at 1600 2nd Avenue North (37208) and Cement Plant Road to protest with the theme 'No More "Tricks" That Sewer Sludge Is a "Treat"'
