Bush Must Go: Only Impeachment Can Stop Him

Arkansas, 16.01.2007 03:10

When are the American people and their representatives in Congress and the military going to wake up and realize that the US has an insane war criminal in the White House who is destroying all chances for peace in the world and establishing a police state in the US?

ABC Shuts Down Blogger Who Criticized Violent Rhetoric on KSFO

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.01.2007 00:10

In 2006, a blogger named Spocko began posting examples of inflammatory rhetoric common to several talk radio hosts on KSFO, an ABC Radio-owned station in San Francisco. Spocko also sent numerous letters to corporations advertising on KSFO with examples of the content their commercials were funding. This letter-writing campaign apparently got results, as major advertisers such as MasterCard, Bank of America, and Visa pulled their ads from the station. On December 21, ABC Inc. issued a cease-and-desist letter targeting Spocko and his blog for copyright violation and Spoko's internet service provider shut down his blog.

Lee in time for the Sons of Confederate Veterans to celebrate his birthday.

Santa Cruz Regional Transporation Commission Votes To Widen Highway 1

Santa Cruz, CA, 15.01.2007 09:08

Despite a large public outcry and a local decades-long voting record against widening , the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission voted to pursue funding for three local Highway 1 expansion projects. The three projects were brought to the new SCCRTC on their first meeting, January 11th, 2007. The public was only informed of said projects that week. Objections to widening were raised on the basis of environmental and quality-of-life concerns. The proposed widening would disproportionately affect people living in apartments, condos and mobile home parks.

EU-Vorratsdatenspeicherung: Überwachung 2.0

Germany, 15.01.2007 01:39

Ab Herbst 2007 tritt die EU in eine neue Stufe der Überwachung. Sämtliche Telekommunikationsunternehmen sollen dazu verpflichtet werden, Daten über die Kommunikation all ihrer Kunden verdachtsunabhängig auf Vorrat zu speichern. Zur verbesserten Strafverfolgung soll leicht nachzuvollziehen sein, wer mit wem im letzten halben Jahr per Telefon, Handy, E-Mail oder IP-Telefonie in Verbindung stand. Bei Handy-Telefonaten und SMS würde auch der jeweilige Standort des Benutzers festgehalten. Zudem soll die Nutzung des Internets einsehbarer werden.

Gegen diese orwellianische Entwicklung regt sich Widerstand aus der Netz- und Datenschützer-Szene. Die "üblichen Verdächtigen" der Polit-Aktivisten sollten sich dieser krassen Entwicklung bewusst und ebenfalls aktiver werden. Am 29. Januar wird es im Rahmen des ersten "europäischen Datenschutztages" in Berlin verschiedene Aktionen zum Thema geben.

Is The Official San Diego Martin Luther King Jr Parade Too Official?

San Diego, 14.01.2007 19:38

This year the Peace Resource Center and San Diego Coalition for Peace & Justice have decided to not participate in the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade.

Why not? Over the years we have participated in the parade to honor MLK's values and vision and as a counter to the militarization of the local parade, which includes the FBI, Border Patrol, Homeland Security contingents as well as many JROTC units. This militarization of the parade continues and has been increasing--discussions with parade organizers have fallen on deaf ears. The parade has been increasingly marginalized in the community, first moved to Harbor Drive, then to a route around the outside of Petco Park--with fewer and fewer people attending the parade. --Read More--

Tackle the Shackles, Close Guantanamo

United Kingdom, 14.01.2007 19:09

To mark the 5th anniversary of the transportation of the first prisoners to the US concentration camp in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, a series of demonstrations took place around the world.

In London, Amnesty International organised a protest [Photos | Slide show | Video] and a vigil [Photos] outside the US embassy. Another vigil also took place in solidarity with 90 anti-Guantanamo US activists that were arrested in an occupation of the U.S. Federal Court House in Washington DC [Report | Photos]

In Birmingham around 80 people gathered in front of Hiatt, a UK company that makes shackles and other torture equipment used by the US military in Guantánamo Bay over the last 5 years [Report and Photos]. In Edinburgh a protest outside the US Consulate, and a meeting in the Scottish Parliament took place [Report and Photos]

benefits of social gathering

Portland, 14.01.2007 13:38

tonight i attended a peak oil meeting where we talked about the message. as it happened, the bitter cold (my fingers are still quite numb as i type) had prompted our hosting church to shelter the homeless for a while. This is important for two reasons, 1. the nature of the discussion, end of cheap energy will have a direct impact on homelessness and how we as a collective society will choose to take care of every living thing on the planet in equal proportioning of resources with rights to survive. In the past, animals were slaughtered in ritualistic fashion and many praises were laid upon the lifeforce of the kill which sustains the lifeforce of the gardenkeepers, who in turn, manage carefully the natural systems that keep the whole planet in balance. holy shit, right?

We are here, in the mud. It is not warm here...nor dry.....however, you should stand with support of a man who stands up against the military mahine and a nation of millions who don't have the foggiest notion that our troops do not want to serve in this war. Lt. Watada is speaking for thousands of enlisted soldiers like Darrell Anderson and myself, a fifteen year veteran of the Army. Watada is a true leader.....leading and doing....he knows he should never ask enlisted soldiers to do things he would never do....that is part of the requirement. NEVER ask nor order your troops to do things that you wouldn't do. There are more violators of this rule in the military now, than ever (or at least in my 15 years.) Lt. Watada is not one of them...and with that, the soldiers, who have always followed good leaders....will follow Lt. Watada.. Mike, Damon, Ethan and I, slept on the rig last was night one of Camp RESISTANCE!!!

Fire Fighters Sharing Police &quot;Sensitivity Training?&quot;

Portland, 14.01.2007 13:38

Just saw a video, taken from surveilance cameras, at the Fairfield Apartments, in SW Portland-SCARY!

I will try to capture a copy of the vid, but for now, it can be seen on channel (ugh)2's web site (KATU). It shows a tenant, Terry DeGeorge, who by his own account, needlessly verbally harassed some Portland Fire Fighters who had entered the lobby. An altercation broke out, in which a fire fighter threw the first (and as far as could be seen, ONLY) blow, the others then ganged onto the victim (verbal abuse is a felony in Portland, right?), and took him to the ground, where a bald headed Lt. Robert Bedgood (sp?) kicked him three times. All on video.

Important free speech court case in Seattle - 7 years after WTO protests!

Portland, 14.01.2007 13:38

On Dec 1, 2000, close to 600 people were arrested during the WTO protests in Seattle at several different times and different locations. Originally we tried to construct class action lawsuits for everyone negatively affected by police action during that time but that was too broad. Next we put all arrestees together in a lawsuit and stuck with that for a while. Ultimately, however, several sort of separate suits emerged. This one is the last unresolved case (that I know about.)

This case is for all those arrested in the morning at Westlake Park. Several other cases have been settled: the ACLU got a pretty good outcome and people arrested later in the day at First & Broad settled as well. The city paid protesters significant damages! Some arrestees (the largest group being arrested first thing in the am at 8th & Lenora, soon after departing from Denny Park) ultimately didn't fall into any of the lawsuits, even though I think their rights were tromped as well. !Arrest is NOT an acceptable crowd control method, right!?!

Hugo Chávez Installed as Venezuela's President for Another Six Years

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.01.2007 03:09

Hugo Chávez was re-inaugurated as Venezuela's President for a six-year term on January 10, after soundly winning a December 3 election with 63% of the vote. His regime first came to power in 1998, and he has consistently made efforts to use oil profits to better the lot of the Venezuelan poor and working class, while forging links with other left-wing Latin American governments. In a January 8 speech, he announced that he will nationalize electrical and telecommunications businesses.

Now Look Here, Sonae!

United Kingdom, 13.01.2007 23:39

Only two players have been produced by the Liverpool FC youth academy since they moved to Kirkby in 1998. That's a shocking record! It can't just be a coincidence that the academy is located near to a chipboard factory that pumps out tonnes of cancer-causing chemicals every year. A school, public playing fields and houses are also easily within range of Sonae's pollution. The company have been in and out of Huyton Magistrates Court, but tiny fines and official indifference have left them free to cause all the death and disease they like.

Milers de persones treballadores han estat acomiadades i precaritzades. La indiferència no evitarà que siguem les següents.

Els drets més bàsics de les persones treballadores de Catalunya es troben amenaçats i agredits per la patronal i amb la passivitat, i complicitat, de les institucions i el Govern de Catalunya i l'Estat Espanyol, suposadament socialista i d'esquerres.
Dones, joves i immigrants són les persones més afectades per la precarietat laboral en la que hi han començat a anar caient homes adults com a resultat de tants acomiadaments. Les reestructuracions i processos judicials com els d’Iberia, les segregacions que tenen com a objectiu abaratir l’ocupació com a La Vanguardia, la repressió patronal amb acomiadaments, sancions i pallisses a Mercadona, els acomiadaments massius com els de SEAT,els processos de privatització i precarització que afecten a Parcs i Jardins, el transport ferroviari i la sanitat, els tancaments i les deslocalitzacions d’empreses com Miniwatt, Braun, i un llarg etcètera ens bofetegen a la cara de manera creixent.
La solidaritat, la coordinació, la pressió, la resistència i la lluita per l'exercici dels nostres drets són ara crucials per alleugerir els processos oberts d'acomiadaments i per evitar que se'n produeixin de nous. Autoorganitza't, coordina't, acosta't a les organitzacions que, veritablement,treballen pels drets dels treballadors, queixa't i denuncia les injustícies, ves a les manifestacions, desconfia del poder, escriu als mitjans i sobretot solidaritza't amb les demés persones treballadores.

La solidaridad, la coordinación, la presión, la resistencia y la lucha por el ejercicio de nuestros derechos son cruciales ahora para aligerar los procesos abiertos de despidos y para evitar que se produzcan más.

The Problem the Boston Globe has with Muslims

Boston, 13.01.2007 19:09

For several years the news media have reported increasing numbers of controversies involving Muslim communities throughout the USA as well as in Europe. Recently, Representative Goode and US Holocaust Museum Memorial Museum Council member Dennis Prager objected to US Representative Ellison's use of a Quran during the congressional oath-taking ceremony. Since Ellison's election, Goode and many other politicians and pundits have been demanding changes in immigration law to decrease or to stop the immigration of Muslims to the USA as if the Ellison's ancestors have not been residing in the territory of the USA since the eighteenth century. Such proposals constitute an unsubtle statement that Muslims have no place in America. Muslims seem to us somewhat exotic, and are therefore easy to stereotype. Dumping on Muslims is fun, cheap, and easy. The unwillingness of American and Western societies in general to confront naked Islamophobic incitement recalls so many pathological actions associated with the development of modern anti-Semitism in Central and Eastern Europe that we Americans must ask ourselves whether Islamophobia is the New Anti-Semitism.

Action to Get People Out of Cars and onto the Train

Campaigners lobby Cabinet to cut congestion Campaigners lobby Cabinet to cut congestion Cat Hobbs writes: Last night, campaigners lobbied Bristol City Council Cabinet, asking them to cut congestion by investing in the local rail network. Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways (FOSBR) say that the Council should invest in an extra train on the Severn Beach line in their 2007/8 budget. They say more frequent trains (30-40 minutes rather than hourly or less) would get people out of their cars and on to trains. FOSBR were supported by the RMT, the Conservative Candidate for Bristol North West Charlotte Leslie, Green party councillor Charlie Bolton, Labour leader Helen Holland and Respect. ASLEF (the train drivers' union) also backs the campaign.
