Free party policing 'brutalise partygoers' Following an appeal from partygoers for witnesses to police violence on November 25 a video of the incident has been published. HELP wrote: If anyone at the Bristol Free Party on Sat (Nov 25th) on Cumberland Rd witnessed police violence against partiers and bystanders we need your help. Specifically the incidents at around 2.30am when the police charged a group of people on Cumberland Rd near the Louisiana swinging batons and shields at people indiscriminately and setting dogs on people. We can’t allow police to use such heavy handed indiscriminate violence against people wanting to dance. We need your help for defence cases. Partygoer posted a video and commented: Bristol Police attacked would be party goers and pedestrians attempting to walk up Cumberland road in the early hours of Sunday morning and used pepper-spray and against those inside the party. Shielded, with batons in hand and backed up by horses and dogs, at approximately 3am police baton charged the people remaining outside. A number of people were brutally beaten with batons as they ran away and at least two violent arrests were made of people posing absolutely no threat to the police themselves or the maintenance of public order.

Battle Rages in Oaxaca Over the Weekend

NYC, 27.11.2006 21:38

What was supposed to be a peaceful eight-mile march to the Oaxaca City Center from the offices of the repudiated Governor of Oaxaca Ulises Ruiz ended in violent confrontations that spiraled into a five hour battle between police and protesters this past Saturday.

Activists Blockade Carmel-Agrexco's UK Headquarters for the Third Time

United Kingdom, 27.11.2006 21:09

For the second time this year [previous action], Palestine Solidarity activists blockaded Israeli company Carmel Agrexco's UK headquarters in Hayes, Middlesex, in the early morning of 26 Nov 2006 [press release]. The action was part of an ongoing non-violent protest against recurrent breaches of human rights and international law in the occupied territories of Palestine and to highlight Agrexco's illegal activity in court.

The blockaders braved torrential rain for nearly 6 hours, completely stopping all deliveries to and from the depot. A structure was erected from metal fence panels, blocking Agrexco's main gate. Two activists were locked onto the company's vehicle access gate, inside the company grounds, while another two secured the second gate.

Once again, Agrexco made a decision not to prosecute the blocaders for fear of the negative publicity another court case could generate [see previous trial].

Activists Blockade Shell Petrol Station in Birmingham

United Kingdom, 27.11.2006 17:08

On 20 November, 2006, some 20 environmental and human rights activists risked arrest by blockading a Shell petrol station in central Birmingham for over 3 hours during the morning rush hour. The direct action was taken in solidarity with the community of County Mayo, Ireland, who are resisting the construction by Shell of a dangerous and experimental gas pipeline and refinery in a beautiful and remote part of Ireland [background]. The project is yet another example of how governments (in this case, the Irish state) are putting the interests of large corporations before those of local people and the environment.

"Ce n’est pas possible… Je ne peux pas y croire", "C’est la plus grosse catastrophe sociale dans le secteur, encore pire que Renault Vilvorde". La détresse des travailleurs massés devant l’entreprise VW à Forest est immense. Quelques-uns pleurent. Il n’y a plus d’espoir: mardi, peu après dix heures, la direction de VW a annoncé que "le plan de restructuration de Volkswagen prévoit que la production de la Golf aura lieu à l’avenir dans deux usines d’Europe de l’Ouest au lieu de trois". Les sites choisis sont ceux de Mosel et Wolfsburg, tous deux en Allemagne. Forest est sacrifié.

What Price is the Bob Dylan in Each of Us?

San Diego, 27.11.2006 08:08

It is the annual “Souper Supper” for the San Diego Peace Resource Center. Nearly 100 people of conscience gather in secular communion: walking human artifacts; year after year, decade after decade, they have not given up their need to oppose the abomination of war.

A lagoon of white heads and gray tinted beards, ninety percent are over 50 years of age; while a good third are over seventy. It was a familiar, cozy event. There were no youth at the gathering. Only white faces, perhaps two or three brown, showed up. There were no poor people; no scruffy, smelly, homeless folks who everyday in San Diego are victims of systematic violence by city officials and police.

Amid the old timey folk music sung by the musicians at the peace supper was ironically, “The Times They Are a Changing.” Is there an unstated recognition of similarity with Bob Dylan; his cult of personality, looking out for number one, his material wealth - now a part of the problem?

Perhaps, one day there will be a spark; just one more martyr, just one more atrocity, more news of widespread torture and our gentle folks at the Peace Resources annual Souper Supper will rise up. Risking the wrath of an increasingly totalitarian state and, worse, the ostracism of family and friends still tethered to the profit and exploit order; they may sell their belongings to support the movement and become mendicants for peace.

Malachi Ritscher: A Martyr For Peace

Chicago, 27.11.2006 07:09

Chicago Indymedia has learned that on Friday, November 3 local music and art afficianado and peace advocate Malachi Ritscher burned himself to death on the side of the Kennedy Expressway near downtown Chicago during the morning rush hour. Near Malachi's remains, police found a camcorder with videotape inside and a homemade sign that read "Thou Shalt Not Kill."

Besides the note and videotape at the scene, Malachi also left a longer letter explaining his actions and his motivations. "What is one more life thrown away in this sad and useless national tragedy?" he wrote. "If one death can atone for anything, in any small way, to say to the world: I apologize for what we have done to you, I am ashamed for the mayhem and turmoil caused by my country."

Malachi was among more than seven hundred peace protesters who were illegally arrested on March 20, 2003, when thousands turned out to protest the beginning of the U.S. war on Iraq. His death, to date has received very little news coverage — and outlets that did report his death treated it as a simple suicide and the cause for slower-than-usual traffic that morning. The contents of the videotape he left have not been made public. Read more here, here and here.

Peller reports: There are reported to be 4 different armed groups operating in Oaxaca City at the moment, PRI backed paramilitaries, the Federal Preventative Police (PFP), the state police and the Federal Investigative Police (AFI). Read More

November 25th, 2006 - radio zapote writes: Today, after the seventh megamarch in Oaxaca, members of the APPO attempted to form a human fence around the federal preventative police (PFP), but were attacked with gas. This unleashed a series of clashes with violence again igniting in the city. Many have been arrested and there are reports of many wounded, some by gunfire. It is confirmed that three people were killed.

The march unfolded in a festive atmosphere until it reached Oaxaca’s downtown. There began the attempt to form a human fence around the PFP forces in Oaxaca's zocalo. Groups of PRI members started provoking the demonstraters with insults and shooting slingshots with marbles. Later, the PFP began using tear gas to disperse the people. People started to withdraw, but police kept moving forward and then began the riot. While shooting off tear gas, police kept charging on. People tried to resist in a peaceful way, but couldn't stand up against the tear gas. The people began to defend themselves with rockets, homemade bombs and stones. Read more
