Two Diebold voting machines in Vista experienced paper jams on the already controversial computerized format that has been challenged on local, regional and national levels.

"What happend today in Vista is an example of the continued erosion of our democracy," said Fredia Avalos, a communication lecturer at Cal State San
Marcos. Vista filmaker Mark Day commented "I ended up voting twice. Those machines make a lot of racket and sound like an old harvesting machine. The whole thing is very scary."

Election 2006: Penetrating The Voting Vortex

NYC, 07.11.2006 13:08

Google the terms “hiccup” or “glitch” along with the words “electronic voting equipment” and you’ll get some interesting insight into widespread chaos that could hit polling places this November. In primaries across the nation earlier this year, problems with newly implemented computer-based voting systems, often blamed on software “glitches” or election “hiccups,” caused voting results to be delayed, tallied incorrectly or reversed entirely.



Election 2006: Resisting The Voting Rights Rollback

NYC, 07.11.2006 13:08

Among the new voting requirements recently contested in courts are state-issued photo IDs and tight restrictions on voting registration drives. Proponents of such requirements tend to be conservative white Republicans who argue that tighter rules are essential for preventing voter fraud. However, critics say such laws will unfairly impact the poor, the elderly, the disabled, and college-age students, all of whom tend to vote more for the Democrats.

Ontruiming Fort Pannerden vandaag van start

Netherlands, 07.11.2006 09:09

De ontruiming van Fort Pannerden is vandaag begonnen. Maandag kwamen er al tips binnen van buurtbewoners dat de politie vandaag langs zou komen om het nu 6 jaar gekraakte fort bij het stadje Doornenburg leeg te halen. Op dit moment staan er meer dan 20 busjes ME en marechaussee voor de poort van het fort. Het Nederlandse leger is ook ingezet. Er zijn militairen met zwaar materieel aanwezig die nu bezig zijn met het opzetten van een uitklapbare brug over de 4 meter diepe slotgracht.

De bewoners hebben al eerder aangegeven het fort niet op te willen geven, en zullen zich tegen een ontruiming verzetten. Sympathisanten in het hele land worden opgeroepen om naar Doornenburg te komen en te helpen in de poging de ontruiming te verhinderen. Het fort zelf is de afgelopen maanden zwaar gebarricadeerd. Het complex wat op zichzelf al een onneembare vesting was is verder verstevigd en dichtgemaakt tot op de kleinste toegangswegen toe.

Indymedia doet samen met de bewoners verslag van de situatie vandaag. De dispatchtelefoon staat aan, als je zelf nieuws hebt kun je bellen met 06-44238148

Last minute thoughts on Oregon's elections and ballot measures

Portland, 07.11.2006 06:38

I've done a lot of thinking about the ballot measures and some of the races in this election and I wanted to share some of those thoughts. A lot of people have voted by now but some people are still trying to figure out what the results of some of the ballot measures could be. I can't claim to be right in my analysis but hopefully it will provide some food for thought.

Few Oklahoma candidates take Voters First Pledge

Sue Barton (Dem, OK-3) latest to sign A total of 364 candidates nationwide have signed the Voters First Pledge. In June, the Voters First Pledge was sent to all candidates running for the House of Representatives and the Senate in the 2006 elections. If candidates entered the race after the launch, they were sent pledges as well. Full text of pledge below. A total of 364 candidates nationwide have signed the Voters First Pledge.

The public is losing faith in Congress. With so much pressure to fundraise to win and keep their offices, politicians focus on donors rather than the people they are supposed to represent. Too many politicians appear to care more about what lobbyists and powerful interests think than they do about the pressing problems faced by most Americans. Voters are tired of “politics as usual.” We want solutions that improve fairness in campaign fundraising and allow new voices and ideas to be heard. We want an end to the headlines about scandals involving the powerful interests and lobbyists in Washington. We want more public reporting of the relationships between lobbyists and the people we elect to serve our interests. Powerful interests and lobbyists spend millions of dollars to gain access to our elected officials, and are rewarded with billions of taxpayer dollars in return. Potential leaders of tomorrow who refuse to play this game or don’t have access to millions can’t get a start in politics today. It’s time to clean up Congress by putting voters first. For our nation’s future, vision and voters should matter more than donors and their dollars. In 2006, American voters are demanding real change that goes beyond empty slogans. To ensure that Congress is accountable to voters, we urge all candidates to sign the Voters First Pledge. By signing below, I pledge to put voters before lobbyists by supporting legislation to: Make Elections Fair. Establish and enforce campaign spending limits by providing a set amount of public funding for all candidates who agree to take no private contributions. Restore Accountability. Pass and enforce meaningful new restrictions on gifts and travel from lobbyists and other powerful interests for members of Congress. Protect Voters’ Right-To-Know. Require full disclosure on the internet of all lobbyists’ contributions and any fundraising help members of Congress get from lobbyists. The Voters First Pledge drive is a joint campaign of Public Campaign Action Fund, Common Cause, Public Citizen, and other national and state groups.

MegaMarch in Oaxaca. Solidarity March and Rally in San Diego

San Diego, 07.11.2006 04:38

On Sunday, a mega-march organized by the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO), with an estimated hundreds of thousands to a half million to one million participants, filled the streets of Oaxaca City, reportedly at one point extending as long as 12 kilometers (7 miles). The march was said to be the people's response to the Mexican Federal Preventative Forces' (PFP) failed invasion of the University Autotonima Benito Juarez, which houses APPO's Radio Universidad, and the continuing attacks, arrests and repression. Early on Sunday, a university student guarding the radio station was shot in the chest and remains in critical condition.

Also on Sunday, a Oaxaca solidarity march leaving from the San Diego Oaxaca Solidarity Camp at the Mexican Consulate in Little Italy (at peak ~ 70 participants) took the streets and progressed through downtown and the gaslamp with banners and chants expressing solidarity with the Oaxacan People and their demands: the corrupt governor Ulises Ruiz must go; the federal PFP troops must leave Oaxaca and the political prisoners and disappeared must be returned in good health.

The march was preceded by an open mic rally where speakers discussed the situation in Oaxaca, Oaxaqueños in California, and demands upon the Mexican government and the San Diego Mexican Consul. As the Mexican Consulate was approached at the conclusion of the march, unassociated passersby dragged hay bales, which had been placed on the corner to give Little Italy a fake harvest ambience, into the street, according to an eyewitness who did not wish to be identified. The hay bale blockade at the corner of India and Cedar was the site of a post-march open mic rally further discussing the situation in Oaxaca and the demand for the end to police violence in both Oaxaca and San Diego.

Throughout the march and rally, the sdpd continued harassing and intimidating protesters in an attempt to curtail their rights to speak and be heard, and their rights to occupy public space. Early in the march, one copcar loudspeaker declared that the marchers were participating in a riot and would be arrested if they did not move to the sidewalk. As the march continued in the street, cops threatened the peaceful protesters with violence by dangerously accelerating their cars toward them in the back of and on either side of the march. Late in the march, a cop car struck a protester's wheelchair, fortunately not resulting in injuries.

At the hay bale blockade rally, the sdpd's frustration with nonhierarchical, self-organized resistance movements was evident, as they searched unsuccessfully for a leader to threaten and arrest. Cop photographers and videographers attempted to intimidate the protesters. One sdpd photographer moved into the crowd, apparently thinking that an armed thug amongst peaceful demonstrators would not be noticed. Protesters held signs up to block his view every time he attempted to take a photograph, eventually chasing him back to the sidelines.

Many protesters commented that they were energized by their ability to get out the message about Oaxaca despite the attempts at repression. Music and poetry after the rally produced a festive and hopeful atmosphere.

The San Diego Oaxaca Solidarity Camp continues at the Mexican Consulate, 1549 India Street in Little Italy. The protesters request your continuing help and support.

Manifestación contra la autovía en →Tamadaba

Canarias, 07.11.2006 00:10

Más información en la web de Ben Magec

"Es necesario mejorar la carretera Agaete - La Aldea, pero rechazamos la mega-infraestructura elegida. El alto valor natural, cultural y paisajístico de Tamadaba merece considerar una alternativa menos agresiva con el entorno.

"Proponemos una carretera más segura que la actual, destinando el ahorro a programas de desarrollo comarcal (salud, empleo, educación), así como a la investigación, conservación, gestión y uso público de sus espacios naturales…"

OTRA VÍA ES POSIBLE: Huellas de una Manifestación

Casi (o más de) un millar de personas se concentraron este domingo a la entrada del municipio de Agaete, para, en un acto cultural enmarcado en la Bienal de Arte del Gobierno de Canarias, realizar una protesta por el impacto medioambiental que a su juicio causará la autovía entre los municipios de La Aldea de San Nicolás y Agaete (Gran Canaria).

Heriberto Dávila, portavoz del colectivo Ben Magec, manifestó que no es una protesta en contra de la construcción de la vía, que consideran necesaria para los ciudadanos de La Aldea, sino por el diseño del proyecto que entre otros defectos, atraviesa un parque natural. Antonio Hernández, también de Ben Magec, aboga por abrir un debate en el que se logre un equilibrio entre lo que existe en estos momentos y el proyecto elaborado por el Ejecutivo Regional, porque, han querido dejar claro, que no se oponen a la carretera en sí sino al trazado de la misma. La propuesta del grupo ecologista es la elaboración, tal y como ocurrió para el istmo de Santa Catalina, un concurso de ideas en el que participen diversos expertos y garanticen que “no se va a atentar contra el paisaje de los municipios del norte”. En el mismo sentido se pronunció uno de los integrantes del colectivo Z, Nestor Torrens, que estima que se debería realizar un estudio de impacto medioambiental porque a pesar de que “se lleva polemizando sobre la obra desde 1998, aún no se ha planteado ninguna otra alternativa”.



Mike R's Anti-Campaign

Santa Cruz, CA, 07.11.2006 00:09

Mike R's Anti Fanclub writes: We're not associated with any parties and don't advocate any candidates. Honestly, we don't even advocate voting. But IF you vote, for fuck sake don't vote for Mike.

There are some people who claim to represent you who are worse than others. Some duplicitous souls who get elected year after year by convincing hapless youth that he and they share the same values.

For one city council candidate in particular, we read his carefully-worded campaign statements, many of whose positions "neither oppose not support" this issue or that and wonder what about several months ago when he was opposing the minimum wage law? What about last year when he supported police spying and supported hotel development? What about the two decades of anti-homeless, anti-poor, and anti-youth laws he's supported?

Dale Skillicorn is a racist...only outreached to white voters, had no spanish is his literature and is slinging mud like crazy against his opponent, Mireya Gomez, who is a honest campaining hometown girl with a degree from UCSC and over 10 years of community organizing experience.

British soldiers were sent to Iraq because of the lies and duplicity of our government. In Iraq, British soldiers represent a very small proportion of the total casualties. So do US soldiers. Most of the dead are Iraqis. Bristol Stop The War Coalition believes it is important that all those who have been killed in the current wars should be remembered. The actions of our government have not only led to the death and injury of hundreds of British soldiers but also the death and injury of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans. The Lancet Report, based on well-established methodologies, estimates 655,000 Iraqi deaths directly caused by the invasion and occupation.

San Diego Activist Janice Jordan Running for CA Governor

San Diego, 06.11.2006 17:08

San Diego activist Janice Jordan is running as the Peace and Freedom Candidate for governor of California with a $400 budget. Her campaign calls for an immediate moratorium on the death penalty, community policing, universal healthcare and free education, affordable housing, full equality for women, support for unions and immigrant rights.

Jordan was political prisoner Leonard Peltier's vice-presidential running mate in the 2004 election. She is active in the San Diego Sagon Penn Chapter of CopWatch, the California Coalition of Women Prisoners, and other local groups working for positive social change.

Arnold Schwartzenegger is estimated to have spent $40 million for his republican bid for governor; Phil Angelides $36 million for the democrats. Despite the 100,000 times funding advantage the corporate candidates have over Jordan, in a recent mock election amongst California students, Jordan came in third - within spitting distance of the leaders: Jordan, 15.7%; Camejo, 8.9%; Olivier, 4.8%,;Noonan, 3.5%; Angelides, 34.5%, Schwarzenegger, 32.7%.

I spoke with Jordan outside a CopWatch event on October 22, the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality. Video: 8min 33sec.

The subject of the lecture was posed as a question: "Is the WTO Accountable?" Shortly after the address began, three Boston activists took turns standing up and loudly disrupting the event. Each wore a bright red headband inscribed with the words, “NO WTO.” They read, in part, statements charging the WTO with putting profits before people and destroying the lives, ecosystems, and communities of people around the world. All three were quickly and forcibly dragged from the building, while still delivering their indictments, by Harvard security and Cambridge police.



Plane Stupid's Day of Action

United Kingdom, 06.11.2006 16:09

Co-ordinated actions - including the occupation of Easyjet's London headquarters - took place today as part of a national campaign against short haul flights. Conceived at this summer's highly successful Climate Camp and enabled by the formation of affinity groups in Sheffield, Cambridge, Manchester, Southampton and London, it follows on from the occupation of East Midlands Airport, dubbed Climate Camp 2 in September.

'Bristol Computers 4 Palestine' Project

Bristol, 06.11.2006 16:08

Makes Its First Donation This project aims to ship recycled computers from Bristol to small towns in Palestine. There they will be used for education, youth work, and for general use by all sections of the community. Read More Ed Hill writes: Bristol Computers4Palestine made its first donation. A digital camera and laptop computer were presented to Suzana Zorko Founder/director of the CHILDREN OF BETHANY PROJECT. The Children Of Behany Project takes its name from the nearby Christian community around the Bethany area, where by tradition Jesus stated his journey into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It raises funds for children’s entertainment and cultural trips. For instance to the zoo, for a recent international puppet festival, and shortly the premiere performance of the first Palestine Circus troupe in Bethlehem.Suzana Zorko says “The Wall cuts us off here, like a limb severed from the rest of the body. Without these trips there is almost nothing for young people to do here and very little hope. The donation of the camera and laptop will enable us to record our work and maintain our website and to communicate our project, both locally and internationally, to attract fund-raising for this essential work for our community”. The donation was made in the area of Al-Eizariya where the Israeli Wall cuts straight across the main dual carriage-way that previously linked the area to Jerusalem ... Bristol has a round-about link with this project. Local activist Jo Wilding did a stint with the Circus2Iraq shortly after the War. However the troupe subsequently had to leave Iraq and came to Palestine for a tour of several months. During this time they performed in the Al-Eizariya and Abu Dis areas and trained local Palestinians in circus skills to form the first Palestine Circus group, who will perform for the first time in Bethlehem next weekend.

Repression in Mexico continues as UK prepares for action

United Kingdom, 06.11.2006 14:08

As the Federal Preventative Police (PFP) continue their advance on the city of Oaxaca in the hopes of dislodging the Oaxacan Peoples’ Popular Assembly (APPO), the determined residents are resisting the invasion without resorting to violence. This is being marked with a demonstration outside the Mexican Embassy in London at 5pm today, to coincide with the Mexican Day of the Dead. Afterwards, there is a video screening of Brad Will's final footage [bittorrents: Es | En | DVD ] and discussion at RampART at 8pm. Meanwhile, the planned solidarity film screening on Saturday is temporarily on hold, following the eviction of the Dalston Squat on Thursday [Pictures: 1 | 2 Video: 1].

There is also a mass demonstration against climate change taking place in London on Saturday, marching to Trafalgar Square.

Pharmaceutical Commercials - Off the Airwaves!

Portland, 06.11.2006 13:38

Pharmaceutical ads . . . out of control. In the past, when they were banned from television and radio, the promotional campaigns of pharmaceutical companies were directed towards doctors and hospitals which makes sense. Consumers can't buy this stuff off the shelf at the drugstore; it can only be purchased through prescription. That means that commercials push consumers to hound their medical providers for medications that may not only be inappropriate, but actually dangerous when compared to ways of healthy living (exercise, good nutrition, eating the proper amounts of food) which are often as effective in heading off problems. It's not good for the consumer and it seeks to second-guess the medical profession.

Heavy television and radio advertising is expensive. Since our government now allows pharmaceutical companies to develop, purchase and air expensive commercials, guess who they pass the cost on to? And that's something we don't need when medications in the USA are already too expensive for many to afford.



Cascadian rains bring brooks back to Brooklyn

Portland, 06.11.2006 13:38

I step outside after dinner. The rain is coming down so thick that I get wet on the porch. The air is warm, nearly sultry. The smell is clean: it's been pouring like this for a few hours for days; the city smells have long since been washed away.

I hop on my bike and dash out into it. Okay, first I put on long wool pants, water-proof boots, and zip up a raincoat around myself. Then I hop on my bike, but dashing isn't so easy tonight. Ponds have formed at many intersections. The bike-lane is full of swirling leaves. The water runs like streams.

As well it should, this being Brooklyn, a neighborhood in the City of Roses, that lies in the historic flood plain of the Willamette River. Its flatness betrays the swamps and wetlands that once covered it. The little rivers now rushing across its streets and parking lots are the liberated cousins of buried, culverted courses underneath. "Brook Land" became "Brooklyn" at some point when people forgot what they'd buried, or were replaced by people who never knew.



Why Continue to Write About Fouad Kaady?

Portland, 06.11.2006 13:38

Many people reading this site probably wonder why I continue to rant about the murder of Fouad Kaady, month after month. To tell the truth, I often wonder myself. I have never been one to engage in obsessive behavior, but this case haunts me, perhaps even more than all of the other murders by cop that have occurred in our area in recent years.

For those who may have been out of the area, a quick recap is in order: Fourteen months ago, on Sept 8, 2005, those of us living in the area were startled awake by the "story" carried on local media stations, concerning a young man, who was completely nude, and acting "irrational," who had "possibly been involved in some hit and run accidents," who was subsequently SHOT AND KILLED BY A SANDY POLICE OFFICER AND A CLACKAMAS COUNTY DEPUTY SHERIFF. The local reports continued to demonize and marginalize the victim for days, with "perhaps he was on drugs," "may have mental health issues," and similar innuendo.

The fact that the victim was reported to be completely naked at the time of the killing led us to ask more questions, to actually purchase copies of what reports the sheriff would release, and to enquire of folks here, on Indymedia for anyone who may have details, or more knowledge. It also caused us to respond to the vigil in Sandy, where we met with friends and family of Fouad. The more we learned, the more appalled we became.
