Last Chance to Stop The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act

San Francisco Bay Area, 13.11.2006 03:38

The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (H.R. 4239) which could stop people from protesting or speaking out about cruelty to animals. While it claims to target violent protests, it could also be interpreted to ban even peaceful protests, letter-writing, or leafleting that make those who profit from the use of animals feel "intimidated" or "harassed." It threatens to eliminate undercover investigations that reveal conditions in laboratories and farms. It provides for prosecutions against those participating in non-violent actions that result in "loss of profits" for virtually all "animal enterprises." Having already sailed through the Senate, the vote could take place as early as Monday. The Equal Justice Alliance urges people to stop this bill by calling your Representative Monday morning to protest the bill.

In 1974, Elizabeth Holtzman, then a Congresswoman from New York City, served on the House’s Judiciary Committee, which drafted Impeachment charges against then-President, Richard M. Nixon. On Nov. 11, 2006, she appeared on a panel, in Philadelphia, PA. Holtzman believes George W. Bush has “subverted the Constitution” and that “the people are ahead of the politicians” and will bring Bush and Dick Cheney “to impeachment.”

La manifestación saldrá a las 11:00 horas, desde el Palacio de la Justicia en el Paseo de Reding y terminará en la Plaza de la Constitución.



Daniel Ortega Wins Nicaraguan Presidential Election

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.11.2006 09:39

The Sandinista Party's Daniel Ortega was elected President of Nicaragua November 5 with a substantial lead, enabling him to win outright. The Liberal Party, which held the presidency since the Sandinistas lost it in 1990, had recently split over issues related to the conviction for corruption of the previous president, Arnoldo Alemán. Ortega has the enthusiastic support of President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela and is causing consternation in Washington.

Protester hospitalised in successful Shell blockade

United Kingdom, 12.11.2006 00:38

There was a large turn out for the blockade of a Shell petrol station in Nottingham, in solidarity with people opressed by Shell everywhere. The blockade was successful in terms of shutting down the petrol station, unfortunatly one of the protestors was ran over by a 4x4 driver and had been taken to hospital. Later we learned that his leg, while badly grazed and bruised, is not broken.

Plenty of leaflets were given out to motorists and passers by and plenty of honks of support were heard. The boys in yellow turned up eventually, not that they were interested in the running down of a protestor, they just wanted people to stop blocking the entrance, and in fact ignored another car which tried to force its way through.

Northern Germany Region Prepares For Resistance

Portland, 11.11.2006 14:38

Around 20,000 German police will be assigned to guard the transportation of highly radioactive nuclear waste (in containers called "Castor") from France to Germany, starting this Friday. The destination is Gorleben a village in northern Germany, in a region called the Wendland. Protest actions are planned throughout France and Germany, especially along the last 50 kilometres (expected for sunday) on rail and 20 kilometres by road (expected in the night to monday).

Suprisingly for everyone, police will seems to try one of the most difficult parts, the railway tracks from Lüneburg to Dannenberg (Map).

Numerous little actions happened allready during the last weeks numerous demonstrations (pics) all over Germany took place this week, which are all just a "warming up" for the weekend to come.



Lone Vet Report

Portland, 11.11.2006 14:38

Once again, I traveled the 15 bus to my brunch date with the Gordon. I arrived a little early this time, about 11:00 AM, wanted to see who goes to lunch. I stayed until about 1:00 PM and had a great time.

The reception I received in front of the World Trade Center was more friendly than usual. I had a good time and there were some funny moments.

The supervisor for security stopped by to say hello and asked it I needed anything. He also asked if I was going to go inside to see the staff of our Gorgon, I said no---he seemed happy. Most of the people who read my sign gave me a smile or thumbs-up, there was one person who yelled at me, "You won the damn House, what more do you want?" I said, "You haven't heard, we won the Senate too." I added, "I want all the traitors in prison, not jail---PRISON." There was another great moment---a person in a suit started to come directly at me, thought he was going to give me a hard time. (You know I am in hostile territory) but to my surprise, he asked me what kind of coffee I like! A few minutes later he came back with a coffee and said, "Thanks for doing this!"



Long Live Oaxaca!

Portland, 11.11.2006 14:38

In regional lore, Oaxacans have a reputation for being like the tlacuache. A recurring figure in Mexican mythology, the tlacuache plays dead when cornered. But woe to the enemy who thinks the battle is over. The small but fierce creature merely awaits a more propitious moment to fight back.

The Oaxacan protest movement burns slow, but deep. Oaxacan teachers, who mobilized for a pay raise last May, consciously built on years of protest against social inequality in their state. On June 14, the state government goaded the Oaxacan tlacuachewhen it attempted to evict protesting teachers from Oaxaca's central plaza. Oaxacans responded by forming the broad-based Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO). The federal government confronted the growing movement on October 28 when it sent thousands of federal police to occupy the city. The murders, wounding, and disappearance of the protestors have only deepened the resolve of the movement as a whole.

Worldwide Direct Action to Take Place in Support of Those Struggling in Oaxaca

On November 20, blockades will be set up to show the Mexican government we mean business. We are calling upon YOU to join in these blockades. That could mean blockading the consulates' websites, jamming their phone lines with calls about the conflict in Oaxaca, occupying the offices of the consuls, or shutting down the roads around the consulates in whatever way you see fit.

Old Growth Forests Protected in Southern Oregon!

Portland, 11.11.2006 14:38

* CWP and Allies Stop Three Old-growth Timber Sales in Southern Oregon

This week the Cascadia Wildlands Project won two significant legal victories that have stopped old-growth logging dead in its tracks. The Cow Catcher (Roseburg BLM), Cotton Snake and Willy Slide (Medford BLM) timber sales were sold to the highest bidder without the BLM performing required surveys for the elusive red tree vole, a critter that lives its life in the upper canopy of older forests and a major food source for the endangered northern spotted owl. Instead, the BLM relied on an internal memo it generated that removed the vole from the "survey and manage" list. On Tuesday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found the BLM violated the National Environmental Policy Act and the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act and immediately halted logging at the Cow Catcher and Cotton Snake timber sales. This decision triggered the district court decision that halted the Willy Slide timber sale the following day.

Recall, the all volunteer Northwest Ecosystem Survey Team (NEST) spent considerable time climbing old-growth trees at both Cow Catcher and Cotton snake during summer 2003 locating red tree vole nests. These surveys were critical in compelling the decisions that were handed down this week. Kudos to the tireless efforts of NEST. The Cascadia Wildlands Project was joined by our allies at Umpqua Watersheds and Klamath Siskiyou Wildlands Center on the lawsuits and was represented by the powerful legal team of Stephanie Parent of the Pacific Environmental Advocacy Center, Erin Madden and Marianne Dugan.

Bristol Airport Expansion: Flying In The Face of Stern

Bristol, 11.11.2006 13:38

Your Chance to Have a Say on Bristol Airport Expansion Your Chance to Have a Say on Bristol Airport Expansion Following the Stern Report and with reports suggesting that 'Global growth in carbon emissions is "out of control"' - Bristol International Airport’s (BIA) Master Plan is launched. In response Stop Bristol Airport Expansion campaign reported on Bristol Indymedia that the Master Plan could influence planning decisions, despite being a business plan and not a planning document. They write; We will be closely scrutinising the plan in the light of the Stern Report published last week and last Saturday’s Climate Chaos rally. The Stern Report has emphasised the chaos and economic disaster that will follow if climate change is left unchecked, and acknowledges that aviation is the fastest growing source of CO2 emissions. The report should be a wake-up call for the Government and Local Authorities that the planned expansion of airports such as Bristol will damage the economy rather than enhance it. The last chance to oppose the expansion of Bristol Airport begins today and runs until 22 December....SBAE believe that the only way to halt the increase in greenhouse gases produced from aviation is to stop creating the demand for more flights. The demand for air travel must be managed to protect local communities from more disturbance from noise, and more traffic while safeguarding the environment for future generations....To respond to the plans, write to North Somerset Council at: Bristol International Airport Master Plan Consultation",c/o Kate Durston, Development Control, North Somerset Council, Somerset House, Oxford Street, Weston super Mare,BS23 1TG or email: dccomments@n-somerset.gov.uk.

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.11.2006 21:39

On Monday, November 13th there will be a rally against threatened mass firings at the Woodfin Hotel in Emeryville. Hotel workers and their supporters will gather at 5:00pm at 5800 Shellmound St. for a "high-energy, family-friendly, musical, candle-lit community protest." Woodfin Hotel workers are still demanding what is owed to them under the new living wage law in Emeryville, Measure C, which took effect last December. After the passage of Measure C, the Woodfin Hotel bosses began to claim that many of the workers' social security numbers are "incorrect," and are threatening to fire the workers unless they fix their alleged, unproved worker authorization problems.

Wendland, Germany: Ready For Resistance

United Kingdom, 10.11.2006 17:39

Around 20,000 German police will be assigned to guard the transportation of highly radioactive nuclear waste (in containers called "Castor") from France (Map ) to Germany, starting this Friday. The destination is Gorleben a village in northern Germany, in a region called the Wendland. Protest actions are planned throughout France and Germany, especially along the last 50 kilometres (expected for sunday) on rail and 20 kilometres by road (expected in the night to monday).

For many activists this years castor transport is a kind of prelude to the protest against the next G8 summit in Germany in June 2007, where many groups call for blockades, motivated by the experiences in the Wendland.

On 6 Oct A radio transmission tower close to Metzingen used by police during Castor transports was found felled, causing a damage amounts to at least 30,000 euros.

Last year the police seemed to be taken by suprise by the growing resistance in the region, still alive after so many years of protest, in a region where resistance became a part of every day life for many people.

Indymedia UK feature on the castor transport 2005 | "Village Of resistance Metzingen" (de) | Live Ticker

Update Nov 9: In the late afternoon unknowns attacked a railway south of hannover by placing a hook in the contact wire, causing damage to several trains. In Metzingen several farmers fool the police and place their heavy tractors on the railway tracks, withdrawing after a while. Mainstream media reports heavy clashes of demonstrators and police close to Dannenberg in the night, with several people (both police and demonstrators) hurt.

Update Nov 10: More than 600 pupils demonstrate in the destrict town of Lüchow, later on trying to open the gates to the police barracks, while police forces barricade themself inside.

The McGowan Aftermath: Looking Back, Looking Forward

NYC, 10.11.2006 15:09

The system wanted/s us to believe that it is extreme tactics that make us radical, that score us cool points with our companeras/os. They wanted us to believe that it was the sound of breaking glass that shut down the WTO meeting in Seattle. This is patently not true. What shut down the WTO meeting was a coordinated and international effort of unions and NGO along with intense bravery of direct action tactics. Don't get me wrong, I love a good fire, I love the thought of going up against the police in the streets if we have the numbers to pull it off, but tactics do not a revolutionary strategy make. Revolutionary strategy requires an infrastructure to be built that can sustain and move foward. Tactics minus strategy is suicide.

Green Scare Defendents Plead Guilty but are Not Implicating Others

San Diego, 10.11.2006 08:38

The term "Green Scare" is widely used to refer to the U.S. government's current stepped-up program of harassment, intimidation and fear targeting the Earth and animal liberation movements. The government's campaign has been carefully crafted, with the help of Earth and animal-exploiting big business, in an effort to silence these growing political movements. The "Green Scare" has so far resulted in numerous grand juries, indictments and arrests.

The four remaining non-cooperating defendants in the Oregon "Green Scare" case today changed their pleas and agreed to drop their request for production of NSA surveillance materials and data. Recent negotiations between federal prosecutors and the defendants resulted in a global resolution non-cooperation plea agreement whereby the four defendants will agree to accept responsibility for their own roles in environmentally motivated crimes, but do not agree to provide information or testify against anyone now or in the future.

Despite the agreement however, federal prosecutors have asked the court to apply a "terrorism enhancement" at sentencing. Should Judge Aiken grant the government's request, the non-cooperating defendants could face up to 20 years in prison in addition to the terms of the plea agreement. The government is seeking the "terrorism enhancement" despite the fact that the crimes to which they have admitted responsibility only involve the destruction of private property; no government property was damaged in any of the incidents.

Oregon eco-saboteurs plead guilty but are not implicating others

Portland, 10.11.2006 02:08

Eugene, OR - The four remaining non-cooperating defendants in the Oregon "Green Scare" case today changed their pleas and agreed to drop their request for production of NSA surveillance materials and data. Joyanna Zacher, Nathan Block, Daniel McGowan and Jonathan Paul appeared in federal court this morning before U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken to enter pleas related to acts of property destruction and arson. The next status hearing will be on December 14 to determine when sentencing will occur.

Despite the agreement however, federal prosecutors have asked the court to apply a "terrorism enhancement" at sentencing. Should Judge Aiken grant the government's request, the non-cooperating defendants could face up to 20 years in prison in addition to the terms of the plea agreement. The government is seeking the "terrorism enhancement" despite the fact that the crimes to which they have admitted responsibility only involve the destruction of private property; no government property was damaged in any of the incidents.

During the hearing, Daniel McGowan made a heartfelt statement to a packed courtroom that "this plea agreement is very important to me because it allows me to accept full responsibility for my actions and at the same time remain true to my strongly held beliefs." McGowan's attorney, Amanda Lee, added that Daniel "did not identify or implicate any other individuals."

Despite the pleas entered today which resolve the Oregon cases in their entirety Jeff Hogg remains imprisoned without having been charged with any crimes for his refusal to testify against others after being subpoenaed to a federal grand jury. After the hearing, Hogg's partner Cecilia Storey made an emotional plea for his immediate release from custody.

Daniel McGowan and codefendants accept non-cooperation plea agreement

We would like to inform everyone about the events in court today. After months of negotiations and consideration, Daniel, along with Jonathan Paul, Joyanna Zacher and Nathan Block, pled guilty to some of the many charges. We cannot emphasize enough what an extremely difficult decision this was for Daniel and we will continue to give him our full support.

We do not want there to be any confusion about Daniel's plea agreement so we have posted it at http://www.supportdaniel.org/files/McGowanPlea.pdf Daniel agreed to plead guilty with the understanding that he would not implicate or identify anyone at all other than himself. The other three remaining co-defendants entered pleas with the same terms. Daniel has done everything possible to maintain his integrity, and he wants to be as open about his agreement as possible. We have also provided Daniel's statement to Judge Aiken and Daniel's lawyers statement below.

“Tara Cole’s body could have been discovered sooner, had the barge been moved sooner.” Stephen D. Halford, Director-Chief Fire Department concludes: “...I do believe, however, that there is a reasonable probability that Tara Cole’s body could have been discovered sooner, had the barge been moved sooner.” (Page 8). The study also shares that: “It appears, however, that the initial request to have the barge moved on Monday, August 14th was not pursued after Wednesday August 16th.” For the full report go to: http://www.nashfire.org/press/OEM_recoveryOP_review.htm



Worldwide Action to Take Place in Support of Oaxaca on November 20

On October 27, paramilitaries in Oaxaca, Mexico murdered Indymedia journalist Brad Will. He is one of dozens who have lost their lives at the hands of pro-government forces while participating in the largely nonviolent resistance to government oppression in that region. Mexican president Vicente Fox used Brad’s death as a pretext to send 4,000 federal police into the city of Oaxaca; these forces are systematically brutalizing the population.

The people of Oaxaca have not backed down – through days of courageous fighting, they have managed to protect their radio station at the university, repelling machine gun wielding armored police with only sticks, stones, and hope. On November 5, tens of thousands marched through the streets of Oaxaca, calling for the federal police to leave.
