Update on December 7th International Day of Solidarity with Green Scare Indictees, Detainees, and Political Prisoners

Portland, 02.12.2006 14:38

The term Green Scare refers to the Red Scares of the early twentieth century, made famous by the McCarthy hearings and the House Un-American Activities Committee. The Green Scare demonstrates a similar systematic criminalization of dissent as the U.S. government is using all its tactics (e.g., grand juries, specialized legislation, paid agents provocateurs) to target the radical environmental and animal rights movements, those who publicly support them, and others who struggle for a healthy, diverse eco-system and the rights of animals. On December 7th, 2005, the FBI made their first arrests of "Operation Backfire," a multi-state sweep targeting alleged Earth Liberation and Animal Liberation Front activists with charges of conspiracy and arson threatening them with life in prison. Elsewhere, the government has convicted organizers of the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign - a campaign that ultimately kept Huntingdon off the stock market and can take credit for the divestment of hundreds of their clients and investors. The SHAC 7 are currently serving up to 6 years for violating the "Animal Enterprise Protection Act" by operating a website. In Sacramento, Eric McDavid, waiting in solitary confinement for trial, faces up to 20 years for alleged thought crime. In 2001, Jeff "Free" Luers was convicted of damaging 3 Sports Utility Vehicles that were later restored and sold. He is currently serving his 6th year of a 22 year sentence. This year, on December 7, people all over the world will be organizing and participating in events to raise awareness about the Green Scare and show solidarity with those targeted by it.

Founder of British fascist gang stabbed to death

United Kingdom, 02.12.2006 09:08

The founder of the hardline Nazi drinking outfit known as the 'Wolf's Hook White Brotherhood' was stabbed to death at around 4.00am this morning, Monday November 22nd. The Nazi, Mick Sanderson, known as 'Belsen', of Nottingham, was stabbed to death in a drunken fight with another WHWB member, who is now under arrest. Sanderson was stabbed through the heart.

The 'Wolf's Hook White Brotherhood' have been in existence for around 2 years, running their own Hitlerite website, and being closely involved with the 'Nationalist Alliance'. Apart from hard-drinking, the gang specialise in wearing Nazi insignia, styling themselves very much on the form of an 'outlaw' motorcycle club, and sporting Hitlerite and fascist tattoos. They also claim to have been involved in violence against ethnic minorities.

NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL! STAND UP TO THE MINUTEMEN TOMMORROW!

The minutemen are coming.. This Saturday the 2nd of December, members of "Oregonians For Immigration Reform," and "Oregon Minutemen" will be harassing immigrant day laborers. They'll be at 6th and E. Burnside from 7am till noon.

Along with their usual message of racist fear mongering, they've latched onto the public report back that the PCASC, CBLOC delegation is doing at Carpenters hall Local 247 next Tuesday

(  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/11/349976.shtml)

and are asking their members to attend. In their statement they cry,"How many American Home builders are struggling because of this Criminal?" Their efforts to capitalize on recent INS charges against a local Labor organizer come across loud and clear. With the same breath that they criminalize and vilify immigrant workers these groups will work to smash our solidarity with labor struggles across the world, and pit our union members against each other.

November 3rd, 2006 - danielsan and ariel write: The climate for journalists has worsened in the days since the Federal Police occupied Oaxaca City. Today we talked to Juan Carlos Gomez, who until recently worked with a local radio station. He says he had recieved repeated threats on his life, and today was beaten by several men whom he believes are the same men who were shooting at Barricade 3 last friday, and that they were some of the same men who shot and killed Brad Will. In the interview below he describes the attack, saying 'They hit me in the stomach and the mouth... I fell back on the ground and felt a kick to my neck. I ran to the Cinco Señores [an intersection near the University] where I passed out. Some people picked me up and took me to the clinic [behind the barricades protecting Radio Universidad].'

With the PFP in town, local PRIistas are threatening members of APPO, teachers, and visible members of the Oaxacan resistance, including members of the organization CIPO-RFM (Consejo Indigena Popular de Oaxaca - Ricardo Flores Magón), as well as foreigners in general and foreign journalists especially. Indymedia has an especially high profile due to Brad's affiliation with NYC indymedia. We've heard rumors that indymedia is on the minds and lips of PRIistas and government loyalists high up the chain of command, who have claimed that indymedia correspondents take orders from APPO, and that foreigners are stirring up trouble and encouraging the continuing resistance.

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?

Administrative Paranoia Taking Its Toll at UCSC

Santa Cruz, CA, 02.12.2006 02:38

On October 23, 2006, the administration of UC Santa Cruz spent tens of thousands of dollars bussing in at least three dozen police officers (from UCLA, UC Berkeley, UCSC and possibly UCSF) to guard a Graduate & Professional School Fair from the student population. The plan worked magnificently - a solid steel fence was erected outside the fair (located at College 8), with cops surrounding the entire perimeter. Riot helmets sat on a nearby table, and half a dozen high-profile administrators stood ready for action. Within hours, the building had been transformed into a fortress, impenetrable to the hordes of violent, black-clad anarchists. Except, there was one thing the administrators hadn't planned for... there was no protest at all!

Why The Pope Is a Dope

While the corporate media continue to deny that the Pope attacked Islam in his speech two months, even a cursory reading shows that he was launching an unambiguous attack on Islam. He may be trying to make nice in Turkey now, but his speech was aimed at showing that Islam was a rejection of Christianity. Additionally, few have noticed that Benedict was arguing for the superiority of Europe as God's chosen domain.

In the very first, dark minutes of World AIDS Day, we began reciting the long list of New Yorkers who have died because of the failure to adequately address the AIDS crisis.

In the 25 horrible years of the AIDS pandemic, heroes have successfully spoken out, sought answers and demanded solutions. Despite this, more than 80,000 New Yorkers have died.

City Hall loomed behind the still and solemn group of fifty, and midnight taxi traffic was the only noise. The names were announced like accusations and questions. Some names drew murmurs of recognition. A last name repeated many times created the unavoidable image of a whole family gone.

For 12 years, Housing Works has gathered with the New York AIDS community in City Hall Park on this day to name our dead out loud.

Please join us for some time today in City Hall Park at the corner of Broadway and Park Place. Whenever you arrive, there will be still more names to read.

Every hour until midnight comes again tonight, a member of this community will read the following statement:

We gather to read the names of our dead. We read their names to honor their memory. We read their names to remind ourselves of their worth as individuals and of the sheer numbers of people we have lost.

We read their names to tell the Mayor of our City, the Governor of our State, and the President of our Country, that people with AIDS are still dying and are still in need of real leadership that can bring this epidemic to an end once and for all.

We are within reach of this goal. And we stand before the world with new knowledge, new hope, and new dedication.

For the leaders of this world - after decades of neglect - have mapped out a route for all people that can actually end AIDS.

At the United Nations, women and men from every country pledged their support for universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support by 2010. What does this mean?

  • We know how to prevent HIV.
  • We have the medications that can dramatically reduce deaths from AIDS.
  • We know what it takes to help people living with HIV maintain good health: health care workers, support services, housing, food, treatment for chemical dependency and mental illness, and full human rights for people living with HIV/AIDS.
  • We support science that will lead to new breakthroughs in prevention, treatment, and someday a vaccine.
  • Universal access means we can end AIDS as a killer pandemic in the next three years - if we make these basic things available to everyone in the world living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.


We need to do that for our brothers and sisters who are still dying in South Africa. We need to do that for our brothers and sisters who are still dying in South Carolina. We need to do that for the South End of Albany, on the South Side of Chicago and for everyone in the South Bronx.



Campaigns for Freedom: Adama Bah and Dame Dieng

NYC, 01.12.2006 18:38

Help for Adama: Some of you have already heard the story of Adama Bah. For those of you who haven't, Adama - a Muslim teenager and former student of mine at the Harlem Children's Zone - was detained by the FBI in March of 2005. Without any explanation they accused her of being an "imminent threat" and appeared ready to hold her indefinitely. After a widespread public protest, however, the government agreed to release her. Without going into a detailed history of the case, I believe she has been unfairly targeted and in the process has seen her family split apart.

Campaign to free Dame Dieng: Dame Dieng is 21 and has been arrested without any valid explanation, the Senegalese police invented the same old insult and threat known for centuries stuff when they invaded the political opponent, Idrissa Seck, headquarters where Dame Dieng happened to be, he had been recruited by this contradictor to the authoritarian Wade regime after having worked for a newspaper’s website and proved there his incredible gifts for computer matters

Mexican government squash the popular movement in Oaxaca [es]: Human rights repression in Oaxaca

Killing in Oaxaca, a dispatch from a friend's daughter: This day will go down in local history as the most intense fighting of the movement so far. Perhaps it will go down in national history as a battle of the revolution.

Rights activists held in prisons in Oaxaca:Alberto Cilia Ocampo, a thin 21-year-old university student and regional chess champion from Mexico City, came to Oaxaca to document cases of forced disappearances and other human rights violations on Monday. Little did he know that within hours of his arrival, he would become the next case.

Oaxaca: Entscheidende Phase im Kampf für Autonomie

Switzerland, 01.12.2006 16:07

Die Repression durch Bundespolizei PFP, Paramilitärs, Regionalpolizei und private Schlägertrupps der Partei des Gouverneurs Ruiz gegen den Volksaufstand in Oaxaca hat eine neue Ebene erreicht, welche selbst die bisherige alltägliche Gewalt in den Schatten stellt. Die Repression ist brutaler und systematischer als je zuvor: Täglich kommt es zu Massenfestnahmen, Vergewaltigungen, Folter, verschwundenen Personen. Bei Festnahmen werden neuerdings spezielle schwerbewaffnete Greiftrupps sogenannte GOPES eingesetzt, die aufgrund ihrem exzessiven Gewalteinsatz noch gefürchteter sind, als die PFP. So wurden in den letzten Tagen wurden ca. 250 Personen festgenommen. Bis heute forderte die Repression 14-20 Menschenleben und über 400 Verletzte. mehr

Erfolg für Beschwerde gegen Kundgebungsverbote

Switzerland, 01.12.2006 16:07

Die Beschwerde gegen Kundgebungsverbote während Ladenöffnungszeiten in der Markt- und der Spitalgasse wurde in den entscheidenden Punkten gutgeheissen.
Nachdem der Gemeinderat im Sommer dieses Jahres ein derartiges grundsätzliches Verbot erlassen hatte, reichten die demokratischen Juristinnen und Juristen Bern mit Daniele Jenni zusammen eine Beschwerde bei der Regierungstatthalterin ein. Diese hiess die Beschwerde nun gut und der Gemeinderat muss mit seinem grundsätzlichen Verbot zurückkrebsen.

Ebenfalls wurde das nichteintreten auf kurzfristigen Demonstrationsgesuche nicht gutgeheissen und als einen Eingriff in die Grundrechte gesehen.

Dieser Entscheid ist eine erfreuliche Kehrtwende in anbetracht der in letzter Zeit vorherrschenden Strategie Grundrechte weiter abzubauen [2] und gleichzeitig eine militarisierung der inneren Sicherheit voranzutreiben. Mit Blick auf die Bestrebungen in Thun und die dortigen noch hängigen Beschwerden kann dieser Entscheid auch in diesen Angelegenheiten als wegweisend betrachtet werden.

REPRESSIÓ CONTRA L'INDEPENDENTISME, 3 PERSONES DETINGUDES

Valencia, 01.12.2006 15:38

Les persones detingudes acaben de ser posades en llibertat (14:45h).
Fets: Ahir dos companys del SEPC van ser citats a declarar hui a les 10h del matí davant la Brigada de Información de la policia espanyola després de tractar de ser detinguts a dintre de la Universitat sense l'autorització del rector.
A hores d'ara, ja són tres els detinguts en la comissaria pel que considerem un clar exemple de persecució política contra l'independentisme a la universitat. Recordem que aquesta setmana els sindicats feixistes i blavers han estat amenaçant continuament als estudiants i simpatitzants del SPEC amb motiu de les eleccions a claustre. Ahir, un estudiant expedientat i inhabilitat per la pròpia universitat, membre de Estudiantes por la libertat, i protagonista de nombrosos actes de violència dins de diverses facultats, assenyalà a dos estudiants del SEPC per a que la policia espanyola se'ls emportara. La policia espanyola, que té expressament prohibida l'entrada als recintes universitaris, ha fet passar a disposició judicial als estudiants del SEPC retinguts i identificats el dia d'ahir.
