Transport and Climate Change : Newswire Round-Up

Bristol, 06.12.2006 00:38

From Bristol International Airport To The Severn Beach Line summary A number of newswire articles currently address transport and climate change, both as issues in themselves and in relation to each other. Bristol Indymedia pulls together these articles. Stop Bristol Airport Expansion writes: SBAE figures confirm that CO2 emissions produced by BIA’s operation are greater than those produced by all the road transport in Bristol and twice those of all the road transport in B&NES. By 2019, BIA will be contributing emissions equivalent to 38% of all emissions produced by Bristol, and equivalent to 81% of all emissions produced by B&NES. While these figures have been calculated against Defra figures for emissions for all councils. BIA has continued to calculate values against previous traffic emissions figures produced by Bristol City Council, which have now been rejected as unreliable. Bristol City Council have now adopted the same mathematical model as Defra. Full Article. Elsewhere protests against the expansion of Bristol International Airport continue. fish tie no# 12 reports: Yesterday (4th Dec) climate activists from Southwest Climate Action smartly stormed North Somerset Environment and Planning Offices to protest against the planned expansion of Bristol International Airport ...They occupied the lobby and some climbed onto the roof, claiming they were trying to escape the rising sea levels that climate change will bring. A nearby soundsystem played recorded sounds of planes taking off in order to bring home to the planners the effects that their decisions could have upon people in the Southwest ... The planners admitted to the protesters that they might have to rethink the entire approach to the national program of expansions in the light of increasing news about climate change. The recently published Stern Report predicts that climate change will push the world economy into a depression if we do not act now. Full Article. Meanwhile other campaigners are targeting high emission private vehicles. David Rose announces: A few of us are in the process of setting up a Bristol-based campaign to highlight the problems of 4x4 ownership in urban areas, including these vehicles' high carbon emissions, and the dangers and inconvenience they pose to other road users. The aim is to turn the aspirational value of 4x4 ownership on its head, and through constructive and peaceful means start to make these vehicles socially unacceptable. We are looking for volunteers to sit on a campaign steering board and to help stage campaign activities. Full Article. As campaigners continue to target the most polluting methods of transport, others highlight the underfunding of Bristol's rail infrastructure. Cat Hobbs writes: Rail campaigners are calling on local authorities to provide money for a half-hourly service on the Severn Beach line ... The campaigners argue that increasing the frequency of rail services is key to cutting congestion in Bristol. Julie Boston, Secretary of FOSBR, says "The local rail infrastructure could provide enormous economic, social and environmental benefits to the city as a whole." She argues that the Severn Beach line is a good starting point for improving services, explaining that it's extremely overcrowded at peak times. "There is so much support for a half-hourly service. Over 3000 people signed our petition asking for a half-hourly service earlier this year. 16 organisations signed our open letter calling for more frequent local rail services."

Oaxaca Uprising Continues as the Zapatista Other Campaing Ends

United Kingdom, 05.12.2006 21:09

"We are on the eve of either a great uprising or a civil war" recently stated the EZLN's Delegate Zero refering to the current situation in Oaxaca, southern Mexico. Whilst the 45,000Km long Other Campaign tour around "the forgotten corners of Mexico" that the Zapatistas started on the 1st January 2006 ends in Mexico City, the repression in Oaxaca is worsening by the day. For this reason the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) is now calling for a global wave of active solidarity with the people of Oaxaca, to culminate with a 'worldwide day of action' on the 22nd of December to "say and to demonstrate that the people of Oaxaca are not alone".[Full communique | APPO's response] Closer to home, the Network of UK Zapatista Solidarity Groups has also called for a national week of solidarity actions to take place from the 9th to the 17th of December.

Meanwhile, the popular uprising continues in and around Oaxaca city, and so the illegal detentions against leaders of the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO) have increased in the last few days, forcing many people into hidding. APPO is a grassroots movement organizing for popular democracy, and which is currently at the centre of the Mexican government's latest wave of repression that has already resulted in mass illegal arrests [Flavio Sosa's arrest | more] and the "disappearance" of up to 100 people. [APPO Communique | APPO activist interview | Eyewitness report]

At the same time there is also a concerted effort by the Mexican government to try to silence any independent media that is reporting the truth of what is happening in Oaxaca. Following the murder of Indymedia videographer Bradley Will who was shot dead by paramilitaries whilst documenting an APPO barricade on the 25th of October, the attacks against international and national independent media have continued. Two documentary filmakers and a translator were illegaly detained as they ate in a restaurant in Oaxacxa city centre on the 3rd of December.

Oscar Beard is an independent journalist from London currently travelling in the southern estates of Mexico. He has regularly contributed text, video and photo reports to the Indymedia newswire. See his reports from Mexico here.

Boston, 05.12.2006 16:08

Hugo Chavez Re-elected, “Down with imperialism.”

Portland, 05.12.2006 12:38

At 10 pm last night the CNE, the National Electoral Council, stated its first report of the presidential elections showing Hugo Chavez winning by a larger margin than ever before. With 78.31% of the votes counted the presidential incumbent Hugo Chávez obtained 5,936,141 votes, (61,35%), and Manuel Rosales 3,715,292 (38,39%).

Contrary to predictions, Venezuela´s Presidential elections proceeded with only a few minor hitches. The morning started early, around 3am, to the blaring of La Diana, a Chavista mobilization song, and repetitive explosive fireworks. The citizens began lining up as early as 3am and quickly large lines emerged. With a 16-million-people electoral register, the Venezuelans have 33,000 ballot tables at their disposal in over 11,000 polling stations all over the country. Caracas, in contrast to its normal chaotic traffic and loud street vendors, was quite calm and tranquil. There were few people driving and most business were closed, as most people were standing in line to vote.

Buy Nothing Day mischief

United Kingdom, 05.12.2006 00:09

On Saturday 25th November a host of anti-consumerist actions went off across Oxford shopping centre. The day started with an info-stall, big-brand-bowling and anti-capitalist christmas carols. A congregation of shop-worshippers did the rounds, while another group left subverted till receipts in interesting locations.

As evening fell Breach of the Peace samba band reclaimed Cornmarket to the cry of 'stop shopping, start living', merging beautifully with a local Faslane 365 anti-nuke group who were out and about doing a series of die-ins. Finally a 'merry band of Oxford pixies' reported having cheekily relabelled goods in several chainstores.

Meanwhile many other events took place across the UK.

Dec. 11 Event Offers Chance for Public to Testify on Media Ownership Rules NASHVILLE -- On Dec. 11 in Nashville, all five Federal Communications Commissioners will meet face-to-face with the public to discuss sweeping changes to the nation's media ownership rules. "This hearing is a long overdue opportunity for the public to weigh in on the crucial decisions that shape our media," said Josh Silver, executive director of Free Press which is helping to mobilize public participation in the hearings. "Before letting Sinclair, Gannett or Clear Channel swallow up more local media outlets, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin and the other commissioners need to hear how these Big Media firms are serving - or failing to serve - local communities in Tennessee and throughout the South."
