Tove Johanssen, Human Rights Worker in Palestine, Beaten by Settlers

Portland, 22.11.2006 00:38

A 19-year old Swedish human rights worker had her cheekbone broken by an Israeli settler in Hebron today. Tove Johansson from Stockholm walked through the Tel Rumeida checkpoint with a small group of human rights workers to accompany Palestinian schoolchildren to their homes. They were confronted by about 100 settlers in small groups, who started chanting in Hebrew "We killed Jesus, we'll kill you too!", a refrain the settlers had been repeating to internationals in Tel Rumeida all day.

Update Nov 21: Tove is still in hospital where she will remain for the next few days before returning to Sweden to receive ongoing treatment there. As well as a broken cheekbone Tove has a fractured skull and damage to her eye muscles. A complaint was filed with the police in Kiryat Arba where eye-witness statements and photo evidence was submitted. However, according to a report by Israeli human rights group Yesh Din 90% of complaints filed against Israelis to the "Samaria and Judea District" police were closed without indictments being issued.

A 19-year old Swedish human rights worker had her cheekbone broken by a Jewish extremist in Hebron today. Earlier the same day at least five Palestinians, including a 3-year-old child, were injured by the settler-supporting extremists, who rampaged through Tel Rumeida hurling stones and bottles at local residents. Palestinian schoolchildren on their way home were also attacked. The Israeli army, which was intensively deployed in the area, did not intervene to stop the attacks.

Strip Mining Ban Considered for Tennessee

Tennessee, 22.11.2006 00:10

A bill was recently written with help from United Mountain Defense which out and out bans strip mining for coal in the State of Tennessee no “ifs”, “ands” or “buts”–a flat out abolishment of the practice known as strip mining. We are not asking for less strip mining, or kinder gentler strip mining–we are demanding the permanent abolishment of this horrendous attack on Tennessee’s jobs, environment and culture.

Is Honoring Mumia a Crime?

Portland, 21.11.2006 21:38

Is it a crime to publicly honor black death-row prisoner and journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal (convicted of killing white Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in a 1982 trial that Amnesty International has declared a "violation of minimum international standards that govern fair trial procedures and the use of the death penalty")? Future Philadelphia mayoral candidate Peter J. Wirs thinks so. Acting as the Chairman of Philadelphia's 59th Republican Ward Executive Committee, Wirs has filed criminal charges against the French cities of Paris and St. Denis. Their crime? In 2003 Abu-Jamal was declared an honorary citizen of Paris?the first time since Pablo Picasso was similarly honored in the 1970s. This April, the French city of St. Denis (a Paris suburb) named a major street after him. Located in the Cristino Garcia District of the city (named after an anti-Franco Spanish Republican), Rue Mumia Abu-Jamal leads directly to the largest sports arena in Europe: "Nelson Mandela Stadium." www.insubordination.blogspot.com



Progressive lobbyist Keith Smith dies

Oklahoma, 21.11.2006 21:07

Huge loss for Oklahoma progressive community Keith Smith was one of the founding members of the Oklahoma Progressive Alliance. Keith was indispensable to many organizations he represented in Oklahoma City . He lobbied vigorously and passionately for the Prog. Alliance, the Sierra Club, ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Gay Rights organizations, and others. But he was also indispensable as a friend. This is a tremendous shock because he was so young and vital. He was such a life force that it will be difficult to think of him not being with us any more. I will forward further information as I receive it." -- Barbara Santee Senator Andrew Rice and former Senator Bernest Cain announce with deep regret that Keith Smith passed away last night at Integris Hospital about 11:30 p.m. Final arrangements have not been made, but the funeral will be in Alva and a memorial service will be held here in Oklahoma City sometime in the next two weeks. “Keith was tireless and determined in his efforts to speak for those who otherwise would have no voice in the legislative process. Whether his issue of the day was the rights of children, women, seniors, the protection of the environment or adequate health care for the poor, or the disabled, Keith was a leader in the fight. said Senator Rice. “His energy was boundless and he felt that one of the most important duties of every citizen was to become active in the political process, and he served as an active volunteer in numerous political campaigns whether hosting fund raisers or walking door to door”, said Senator Cain. Keith’s most endearing attribute was that he never admitted defeat. He might lose one battle, but he always bounced right back strategizing on how to win the war.” Keith was born on March 4, 1955 in Alva, Oklahoma and graduated from Oklahoma State University. He was a member of the National Board of Stonewall Democrats, co-chair of Central Oklahoma Stonewall Democrats, a founder of OGLPC; former ACLU Oklahoma and National board member, a Director of Progressive Alliance Political Action Committee and former Board member of Cimarron Alliance. Keith was the first openly GLBT delegate to the Democratic National Convention from Oklahoma. Keith was president of The Smith Group and his clients included ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, Oklahoma Policy Consortium for People with Disabilities and the National Association of Social Workers. The rewards he received for his hard work in the public arena include the Angie Debo Civil Libertarian Award form the ACLU of Oklahoma; the Margaret Sanger Legacy Award from Planned Parenthood of Oklahoma; the Ron Schaffer Memorial Award and Bill Rogers Award of Merit from the Gay and Lesbian political Caucus; the Democracy in Action Award from the League of Women Voters and the Swan Award from the Parents and Families of Lesbians and Gays. He is survived by his mother and three brothers. Keith asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Planned Parenthood of Oklahoma. From profile in Sierra Club publication:"I'm an environmentalist, civil libertarian, pro-choice advocate and openly gay man," says Keith Smith, who lobbies Oklahoma decision-makers for a variety of clients, including the Sierra Club. "I'm a screaming liberal in a conservative state, and that I have any victories at all is surprising." Why does he keep at it? "They desperately need me - and I'm effective," he says. "I became an activist in college, and I've been a volunteer or paid lobbyist ever since." Smith's favorite fight is over concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs, and the public seems increasingly interested in booting them from the state. "It's an issue that lets me build trust and alliances with farmers and decision-makers who are conservative on other legislation," he says. "It's good for Republicans to see family farmers hanging out with Keith Smith at the capital." Smith was born in Oklahoma and is part of a farming family, which helps open the doors of lawmakers. "I grew up in a rural part of the state, and that's where the big CAFO conflicts are, so it helps that I know what life is like there. Probably the scariest thing to an Oklahoman is an outside agitator. I'm a weird liberal, but I'm their weird liberal, and that makes a difference."

Faslane 365 Blockades

United Kingdom, 21.11.2006 17:08

Britain’s Trident nuclear defence system is nearing the end of it’s lifetime and will need decommissioning, replacing or extending within the next few years. A decision to replace Trident would cost well over £40 billion and would keep nuclear submarines in Scotland until at least 2055. It has recently been reported that Tony Blair backs a Trident replacement and wants a Parliamentary debate on the issues to take place quickly. Union leaders from Amicus and GMB are expected to support him.

Faslane 365 is a one year continuous peaceful blockade of the Trident base at Faslane from 1st October 2006 to 30th September 2007. Groups are being asked to visit Faslane naval base in Scotland for a period of two days in order to blockade the base. So far 31 blockading groups have visited the base with varying numbers of people resulting in 301 arrests. Many more groups are planning on blockading the base, including York.

Reports from previous groups: Leeds/Bradford including personal reflections | Manchester's samba band and Big Red Bus | Candle | Scottish Highlands | Sheffield | Welsh Granny Arrested 1 2 | Daughters of Rebecca

Rally in Support of El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice

NYC, 21.11.2006 16:08

On Friday; October 6th, the El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice, a nationally celebrated public high school, was summarily evicted from its home of 13 years (211 South 4th Street) by the New York City Department of Education (DOE). Citing their "sudden" awareness of worsening building conditions (the same conditions that drove El Puente for years to demand DOE support), the DOE dangerously and disrespectfully removed the Academy's operations to M.S. 50 literally overnight, without any prior consultation with the students, parents, administrators or teachers of either school community. El Puente calls for your support.

Clashes With the Police, Barricades Re-erected in Oaxaca

NYC, 21.11.2006 14:08

November 20th, Oaxaca: About 5 thousand people marched to the zocalo. There, people got on top of trucks, barricaded the zocalo and began protesting the police. The police lunched teargas, after which began hours of battle. Protesters defended themselves with slings, fireworks, and bazookas, and constructed barricades around the APPO planton in Santo Domingo plaza, just blocks away from where the police were advancing from.



Faslane 365 Blockades

United Kingdom, 21.11.2006 13:09

Over 50 Anti Nuclear protesters from Leeds and Bradford took part in a mass blockade of the Faslane Nuclear Naval Base in Scotland last week. Twenty seven of the protesters were arrested for their role in the blockade, which included 'locking on' to a giant peace symbol outside the main gates of the base.

A group of women were also arrested after successfully blocking the second gate of the base. They were dressed as lollipop ladies and carried 'Stop Trident' signs.

Protesters managed to cause disruption to traffic trying to enter the base for almost an hour whilst police removed protesters lying in the road and used cutting equipment to remove the 'lock ons'.

The blockade was part of 'Faslane 365', a year-long campaign set up to oppose the existence of Trident, the British nuclear submarine programme and to oppose the introduction of any replacement to Trident.

Palestine Week in Nottingham

United Kingdom, 21.11.2006 13:09

In Support of Palestine Nottingham Jenin Friendship Group present: Palestine Week in Nottingham: November 27th to 2nd December there will be a Public meeting with Eyewitnes reports, a night of Palestinian Music and Food and a Benifit Evening with Music Dance Food and Refreshments

Jenin is situated in the north of the West Bank and has a large refugee camp. The town is surrounded by fertile agricultural land where farmers co-ops produce olive oil, couscous and sundried tomatoes. Jenin is frequently subjected to attacks by the Israeli army. In 2002, bulldozers and tanks destroyed hundreds of homes and displaced thousands of people. Unemployment in Jenin is 62% with over 70% of the population living in poverty.

The Friendship Group is an ongoing project to link organisations and community groups here in Nottingham and Jenin. It’s a way of sharing ideas, experiences and showing solidarity at a grassroots level. Twinning aims to link hospitals, schools, colleges, religious and community groups, women’s organisations, trades unions, arts groups…the possibilities are endless. It might be exchanging emails, providing a venue for visiting delegations, going to visit Jenin, organising fundraising events and so on. Most importantly, the people of Jenin need to know that even though they are physically isolated, they have friends here in Nottingham.

Hinkley Owner's Boss Resigns

Bristol, 21.11.2006 12:08

Following Plant's Multiple Woes sumamary Stop Hinkley writes: British Energy announced that their Chief Nuclear Officer has left with immediate effect. His role was to supervise the operations at Hinkley B and other nuclear power stations. In an extraordinary move the company's Chief Executive will take charge directly of all nuclear operations. The news comes on the tail of British Energy's Six Monthly Financial Report which warned investors that Hinkley Point B and Hunterston nuclear power stations will remain closed for weeks due to cracks in boiler tubes and when they restart will only operate at 70 per cent output. They could not confirm whether or when 100 per cent output could be achieved as this would depend on boiler lifetimes, station lifeimes and the acceptance of safety cases ... Jim Duffy, spokesman for Stop Hinkley said: "Chaos and disaster seem to be reigning at British Energy as they try and persuade their investors that all is well at Hinkley and other nuclear power stations. The magnitude of the work facing just Hinkley is extreme and must be performed in high radiation conditions. Even plans that will take twelve months or more to accomplish must be passed by the regulator before work begins and then before it is commissioned. And the regulators will not just abide by British Energy's finance-driven timetable. It's a glum outlook for Hinkley."

On Tuesday, November 20th, attorneys for jailed indymedia journalist and video blogger Josh Wolf will appear before Federal District Court Judge Alsup to argue for Josh's release from federal prison.

The hearing will be at 2pm in Courtroom 9 in the US District Court, San Francisco Division at 450 Golden Gate Avenue, SF.



How To Ensure Landslide Victories for the Right

Tennessee, 21.11.2006 06:09

Republicans need a new voting process NOW to prepare for 2008. Remember Perot? Election spoilers have been causing voter dissatisfaction for years on both sides of the partisan fence. The fault lies not with voters but with the election process itself. Frustration associated with not being able to vote one's conscience without throwing your vote in favor of the opposition has led to voter disenfranchisement, decreased voter turn-out, and an increasing lack of faith in our election process. Here in Tennessee, it's especially frustrating because so many Tennesseans vote their values over voting partisan. Many say they "vote for the person" and others say their allegiance is "only to God". For whatever reason, the two parties lose these values voters by reducing the choice to the "lesser of two evils". Limiting choice all too often leads to good citizens casting a vote for a long shot. Why do they cross that line? Sometimes it's frustration; sometimes principle; sometimes it's sheer spite or stupidity. Take your best guess. Or maybe you've been there? Whatever the reason, it's tough luck for the two parties. Wise up Republicans, those are votes y'all could have now with a simple change in Tennessee legislation that switches to a ranked ballot.

PFP and APPO clash in Oaxaca

Here are some photos from a brief clash between the PFP and the APPO. As a march was passing by the PFP barricade, some people in the crowd threw rocks at the police, who responded by firing tear gas. The APPO retreated a few blocks, built a new barricade of their own and fired bottle rockets through plastic tubes at the police. The PFP continued to fire tear gas. At least 40 people were overwhelmed by gas, three were injured by the grenades, 15 were detained, but seven released. The APPO called on its members to retreat and prepare for the Nov. 25th offensive.
