Bristol Indymedia Film Night: Steal This Film! (Part One) / Murder in Oaxaca

Bristol, 29.11.2006 13:37

Monday 6th November 2006 @ Cube Cinema Monday 6th November 2006 @ Cube Cinema Monday 4th December 2006 @ Cube Cinema. Doors open 7.30pm, films start at 8pm. £3/4 though nobody turned away for lack of funds. Welcome to the media revolution! The most powerful change to media since the printing press is happening now. Millions of people worldwide are engaged in what some describe as civil disobedience, while others describe it as theft! What they are doing is simply sharing files – music, videos, software – so much so that it is estimated that over 60% of all Internet traffic is file-sharing. A group of friends gathered together to make a film about this underground anti-copyright revolution, focusing on the authorities (unsuccessful) attempts to shut down a file-share website, The Pirate Bay, this film asks a lot of questions about the future of creativity, about how media control works...and about whether, and how, the types of organisation being worked on now working on together can serve us better. The film will be introduced by Ben Green of Bristol Wireless, who will chat about the issues it raises. News Flash: One Indymedia Volunteer Murdered! One Indymedia Volunteer Missing! This film night will also take the time to highlight the Indymedia journalist, Brad Will, who was shot dead by paramilitaries during protest a in Oaxaca, Mexico. We will be screening the last footage he filmed before his murder and talking about the issues in Oaxaca that lead to his, and others, being killed by paramilitaries.

The Closure of Clamor Magazine

NYC, 29.11.2006 13:08

If you are a subscriber to Clamor Magazine, you will receive a letter this week announcing that it is going out of business. The letter says, in part:

We’re writing to you today because we’ve decided to stop publishing Clamor. We set out to create an independent magazine that would bulldoze borders, defy dogma, and inspire instigation. We wanted to create a magazine that extended the vibrancy of the underground zine community to a larger general audience and share the enthusiasm and energy we saw in our fellow do-it-yourselfers. We intended to redefine the progressive magazine. And while we feel like we accomplished those goals at various stages, one goal we never fully realized is that of making Clamor economically sustainable.

… The obstacle of servicing old debt on an otherwise sustainable project while also negotiating major shifts in the magazine industry have proven too burdensome for us to continue publishing. But effective movement media doesn’t need to last indefinitely to be successful. We’re confident that many people have been inspired to do great things after reading about others doing the same in Clamor. We know this because we’ve been consistently inspired by the stories of struggle and triumph in Clamor. And while we’ll miss that, we’re also confident that there are independent media projects being born at this very moment with even greater promise.

Solidarity against the Green Scare: Support Daniel McGowan events from December 2nd to 10th

NYC, 29.11.2006 06:38

One year after... December 7, 2006 is the one-year anniversary of the FBI’s first arrests in “Operation Backfire,” a multi-state sweep targeting radical environmental activists with charges of conspiracy and arson, threatening them with life in prison. Join us for this weekend of solidarity with those targeted by the Green Scare – a term that refers to the current systematic criminalization of dissent, reminiscent of the Red Scares of the early twentieth century. For more info on the Green Scare, see

Who is Daniel McGowan?

Daniel McGowan is an environmental and social justice activist. He was charged in federal court on many counts of arson, property destruction and conspiracy, all relating to two incidents in Oregon in 2001. Until recently, Daniel was offered two choices by the government: cooperate by informing on other people, or go to trial and face life in prison. His only real option was to plead not guilty until he could reach a resolution of the case that permitted him to honor his principles. Now, as a result of months of litigation and negotiation, Daniel was able to admit to his role in these two incidents, while not implicating or identifying any other people who might have been involved. The government will seek a sentence of eight years, while Daniel's lawyers will seek a sentence of no more than 63 months.

Daniel is an important member of our activist community and we need to do all we can to support him!

Schumacher Folds up Portland Fur Shop

Portland, 29.11.2006 06:38

Gregg Schumacher, of Schumacher's Furs, announced today that he will be folding up his fur operation in downtown Portland. His announcement came almost a year since animal rights activists began holding vigils every Saturday in front of the store that has been a fixture in the Portland area since 1865.

Schumacher stated on the Lars Larson Show that he will be running a 50% off sale and then move in a few months to a new undisclosed location. When pressed by Larson about the new location, Gregg Schumacher said he can't disclose it due to "legal" reasons.


Schumacher Furs protest report (Linda Schumacher has a counter-protest), November 25

Saturday November 25 was an eventful day at our weekly Schumacher Furs protest. Coming just a day after an extremely successful Fur Free Friday, many protesters returned to continue to let Portland know about the cruelty of the fur industry.

We held up our anti-fur banners and signs, leafleted, showed video of how animals are used in the fur industry, chanted, watched the radical cheerleaders, and ate vegan treats (including left-over Schumacher protest anniversary cake!) One protester made and wore a huge papier mache head (representing a voracious fur dealer) with a mink dangling from his mouth, and tuxedo tails. It was a good-natured, educational, creative, even theatrical event. And then... Linda Schumacher herself (wearing fur of course) came out with her entourage of employees and security guards and joined us with her own homemade sign that said, "Shop at Schumacher - protest sale! up to 50% off." "Out of control" might be a good way to describe her behavior...


O.J. Simpson book

Portland, 29.11.2006 05:41

The new book by O.J. Simpson is in such bad taste that I will not even mention its name here. What I am grateful for is that Annie Bloom's books will not be stocking it. The owner of the store decided not to put it on his shelves and I applaud his decision. Powell's is going to have it in stock, but has pledged to give all proceeds from the sales of the book to charity. Barnes & Nobel will be selling it and has not said that it will donate any proceeds to anyone. I will be shopping at Annie Blooms a bit more often.

Update: I have just learned that two more Portland book stores are not going to carry this book. They are The Spirit of the Northwest and Looking Glass Books. Also, I said it was Powell's that was going to donate proceeds to charity but it is Borders. Sorry for the error. I don't know where Powell's stands on this issue.

It's official...Sowa is out

Portland, 29.11.2006 05:41

Clackamas county citizens have officially voted in Democrat Lynn Peterson, thus ending the political career of Larry Sowa. Ms. Peterson won by 1,278 votes. Sowa was quoted as saying he would not challenge the vote. "The thing's over with. I'm retiring." And so it goes.

My hope is that Ms. Peterson will be a little more connected when citizens come to the board with their concerns. The day we sat before Mr. Sowa and spoke about Fouad Kaady, I was struck by his appalling lack of interest. He let us fill our time, but I did not see that anything we said went past his desk. We, of course, knew that nothing dramatic would come from our meeting, but common courtesy would dictate that he at least acknowledge our concerns.

Cyber Monday: How the Corporate Media Manipulates The Public Into Mindless Consumption

Portland, 29.11.2006 05:41

Every "news" broadcast in every city in the nation has been running non-stop feature stories today about something dubbed "Cyber Monday." Newspapers, radio broadcasts, and even podcasts are talking it up. Cyber Monday, Cyber Monday, Cyber Monday, Buy Buy Buy Buy.

Where did this come from? Did anyone ever hear of "cyber monday" before today? Why is it breaking over everyone's lips so if by plan? Perhaps because it was a plan.

Editorial Cartoons: It's going to be a New Day with the New Democratic Majority!

DC, 29.11.2006 04:09

Once again the Democratic Party has pandered crassly to "progressive" voters and once again the "Pwogwessives" have fallen for the scam. Like Charlie Brown attempting to kick Lucy's daintily-held football, Amerika's Pwogwessive voters came charging up, expecting to slam it clear into next week, but instead found themselves kicking air and landing on their asses. On "Meet The Press" one Sunday last May, Congressional Stepford Wife Nancy Pelosi declared that there'd be a "New Day" when the Democrats take control of Congress. Let's see what wonderful surprises they have in store for us on five important issues… (a series of 5)

November 30th Screening of FARMCORE to Benefit Indybay

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.11.2006 22:39

SF videographer Mike Kavanaugh will be screening "FARMCORE - The Movie: Punk Rock History of the SF Farm" on Thursday, November 30th at 7pm at the Roxie Film Center (3117 16th St, at Valencia). "Farmcore" is a documentary that tells the story of San Francisco's legendary Farm, located in the Mission District during the 1980s. The Farm was a space where punk shows that featured such bands as the Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains, Black Flag, and Butthole Surfers. The Farm also hosted community gardens, an art gallery, child daycare center, and a multicultural community space. After all other major punk clubs in the city had been shut down, the Farm raged on until late 1987, when it became an early victim of gentrification of the Mission District.
