Il Messico in fermento

Switzerland, 21.01.2007 17:37

Il Messico e' un calderone che ribolle. Un misto tra movimenti che si ribellano e repressione continua.

Dall'inizio dell’Altra Campagna zapatista le lotte per la costruzione di un nuovo socialismo autogestito, si susseguono.
Da Atenco a Oaxaca, senza tralasciare i brogli elettorali passando per l'incontro tra i popoli zapatisti e i popoli del mondo di Oventic, fino al prossimo "campamento" di sostegno dei popoli indigeni della Bassa California si respira quotidianamente un cambiamento, la' dove e' posto il cuore: in basso a sinistra.

Mentre l'aumento del prezzo del mais stravolge gli usi del paese, di pari passo e nell'impunita' totale, avanza l'elaborata strategia globale di controinsurgenza applicata dal governo messicano: morti, desaparecidos, torture, stupri, clandestini che si ripetono quotidianamente nell'apatica indifferenza di turisti ciechi.

La presenza di una commissione civile internazionale per i diritti umani e le varie mobilitazioni mondiali non impediranno al "neoeletto" presidente Calderón di farsi bello all'imminente Forum Economico Mondiale di Davos.

Con l'avvicinarsi di nostrani tempi di elezioni, l'esperienza messicana, ci insegna l'importanza di cambiare il mondo senza prendere il potere, di abbandonare la strada partititico-istituzionale per intraprendere infine il cammino del "comandare obbedendo".

Wither the Anti-War Movement?

NYC, 21.01.2007 01:38

As the Iraq War heats up, can the anti-war "movement" respond? After mobilizing hundreds of thousands in the days before the invasion, war opponents seem content to march in circles and hope the Democrats get their act together. "In a country where more than 70% of population is against escalation," one reader comments "where IS EVERYONE?"

United for Peace and Justice will hold yet another mass rally on January 27. Read what NYC IMC contributors have to say about it.

SAW Response to Job Fair Cancellation

Santa Cruz, CA, 21.01.2007 01:38

Students Against War is greatly saddened by the decision of the Administration to cancel the Career Fair previously scheduled for January 31st, 2007. As students ourselves we fully understand the need to find employment. We recognize the loss of the Career Fair is a loss of opportunity for UCSC students. This loss is compounded by the short notice of this cancellation and the infrequency that job fairs are held on this campus. UC Berkeley, for example, has 8 career fairs scheduled (including a fair with the title "Nonprofit/Public Service Career Fair") for its Spring Semester as opposed to UC Santa Cruz's 1 per Quarter. This averages out to about 1 Career Fair a month, providing constant, easy access to employment opportunities for UC Berkeley students. Read more

Crucial Evidence 'mislaid' in Genoa G8 Diaz Trial

United Kingdom, 21.01.2007 00:08

On Wednesday, 17 January 2007, it emerged that important evidence against the police officers who raided the Diaz school has been 'mislaid' by the police. The evidence concerned is two 'Molotov cocktails' which were supposedly found during the raid back in 2001, and were then used by police to justify the raid. It later transpired that they had in fact been planted in the Diaz building by police. The two bottles should have been produced in court yesterday during the questioning of police officer Donnini, who was in charge of the unit that transported the bottles.

On Thursday the 19th, however, Judge Barroni said the trial will continue with other evidence as the search for the missing evidence progresses. All other charges against the various high-ranking police officers still stand.

Resistance Builds up Against Welsh Gas Pipeline

United Kingdom, 21.01.2007 00:08

National Grid is attempting to construct a high pressure, high volume gas pipeline right across South Wales to connect two new liquid natural gas (LNG) terminals at Milford Haven with the existing national gas distribution network at Tirley, Gloucestershire. Local people have campaigned against the project on environmental, ecological and safety grounds, as well as complaining about the lack of proper consultation. The 'official' routes for their many objections having been exhausted, protesters launched a campaign of direct action against the pipeline at the end of last year, with several protest camps set up along the proposed route [Reports: 1 | 2].

January has seen new camps and more direct action, which have successfully held up construction work at various points along the pipeline route. Activists from across the country are supporting local efforts to protect the beautiful Welsh countryside from this impending environmental disaster.

Cost to New Hampshire of Iraq War

New Hampshire, 20.01.2007 18:09

Even before an additional 20,000 troops are sent to Iraq, NH citizens and businesses will pay about $1.5 billion for Iraq war this year. That sum equals nearly one-third of the entire state budget and would pay for health care for one-third of the state's residents.

Victory for Animal Liberation Activists: POM to Stop Testing on Animals

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.01.2007 09:39

Activists have been after POM to stop needless animal testing for some time. POM used the testing to try to help bolster their marketing claims regarding pomegranate juice. But the heat was turned up lately by activists and POM Wonderful has relented and decided to stop conducting animal vivisection. This was a relatively quick and easy victory, although POM's intentions to not farm the experimentation of animals out to other firms remains unclear.

Overflow Crowd Turns Out for Beaver St. Antiwar Lecture

An overflowing crowd gathered at the 16 Beaver St. cultural space Wednesday night to listen to a pair of radical scholars discuss the future of the U.S. occupation of Iraq. The length of the question-and-answer session, which evolved into a way for audience members to express their own frustrations and concerns with the situation in Iraq and American leadership and the need to create grassroots opposition, made the event more than a lecture.

Surge Protection Brigade Strikes Again: Nonviolent Resisters Shut Down Recruitment Center

Portland, 20.01.2007 01:38

"Mission Accomplished for today," says the Surge Protection Brigade, as their planned protest at the military recruitment center on NE Broadway and 13th apparently caused the center to shut down for the day. The group gathered at the center this morning at 11:45 and stayed until 1:30. One recruiter came to the center toward the end of the protest, saying he had paperwork to do. He refused to let them in and locked the door as a couple of the protesters tried to force their way in.

A group of grandmothers from the Brigade visited the office Thursday and attempted to dialogue with the recruiters. Many of the women's questions about the health and safety of recruits went unanswered, and the recruiters admitted that they did not offer any information to potential recruits about depleted uranium exposure or the risks involved in a tour of duty in Iraq.



Libby’s Trial Crafted to Protect Bush-Cheney Gang

Instead of going after the cabal that lied the country into the Iraqi War, Special Counsel, Patrick J. Fitzgerald, focused on only one defendant, Irving “Scooter” Libby. He also made sure no conspiracy count was utilized in the indictment against him. V.P. Dick Cheney will not testify at Libby’s trial. Fitzgerald, who has close ties to Rudy Giuliani, will continue to make sure that nothing comes out to hurt the interests of the Bush-Cheney Gang.

An Interview with Fariba Nawa On Afghanistan's Future

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.01.2007 21:38

In recent months, the escalating violence in Afghanistan has begun creeping back into the headlines. Most of the stories have focused on the resurgence of the Taliban and the accompanying suicide bombings, assassinations of Afghan politicians, and deaths of US and NATO soldiers. Much of the blame has been placed on insufficient coalition troop levels, the under-paid and under-trained Afghan National Army, and anger in the Muslim world regarding Iraq. Unfortunately, the gross mismanagement, epidemic corruption, and massive failures of the US-led reconstruction of Afghanistan have been mostly ignored.

In an effort to speak out against the life threatening cuts to their housing vouchers, Section 8 tenants had planned to go to the January 30th, Berkeley Housing Authority (BHA) meeting, until they learned during mid January that the meeting had been canceled.

DC, 19.01.2007 17:09

"As a patriotic American proud to serve the nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to support the prompt withdrawal of all American military forces and bases from Iraq . Staying in Iraq will not work and is not worth the price. It is time for U.S. troops to come home." A press conference was held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Norfolk on January 15, 2007 (Martin Luther King Day) to formally announce a military "Appeal for Redress" in connection with the conduct of the Iraq War. Members of active duty military and National Guard, Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), Veterans for Peace (VFP), Military Families Speak Out (MFSO) and the Virginia Antiwar Network (VAWN) were among those who spoke to the public and press. appealforredress.org || Photos

Renowned Mexican Human Rights lawyer Joins Brad Will Case

NYC, 19.01.2007 16:08

The Will family is pleased to have the renowned Mexican human rights lawyer, Miguel Angel de Los Santos Cruz, join the cause for justice in the case of Bradley Roland Will's death.

Brad, a New York based photojournalist and activist, was shot and killed in Oaxaca, Mexico last October 27th while videotaping the turmoil in the Mexican State. Although two government-affiliated suspects were initially held for the murder, they were released by Oaxacan state authorities in late November on claims of insufficient evidence. A number of human rights groups have questioned the legitimacy of the state investigation and are calling for the case to be moved to the federal level.



PacifiCorp to be sued for polluting Klamath

YREKA, CA- Klamath Riverkeeper sent a 60 day notice of intent to file a lawsuit today against Warren Buffett’s PacifiCorp for polluting one of the nation’s most important and controversial salmon rivers, the Klamath. Klamath Riverkeeper’s lawsuit asserts that operation of the Iron Gate Dam hatchery is just one of the ways that PacifiCorp, as the owner of the four Klamath dams, is destroying the River, its salmon runs, and the coastal fishing economies.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer's Yellow Response to Call for Impeachment

Portland, 19.01.2007 14:39

Dear Rep. Blumenauer,

I am deeply disappointed by your poor excuses for not performing your duty and impeaching Bush and Cheney for their many heinous crimes.

The decision to impeach or not is not meant to be one of political strategy but of justice. Remember that Nixon was nearing the end of his term when he was about to be impeached, and he resigned rather than be subjected to the process, even though his crimes pale in comparison to Bush and Cheney's.

TV Commercials on Buses and Trolley?

San Diego, 19.01.2007 14:39

Corporate America has gone too far. Now local San Diego governmental agencies and transportation companies have allowed for the installation of noise polluting TVs to be put on city buses and the Metro Trolley so as to drown commuters with a deluge of audio assault. Thankfully most buses have yet to be transformed. This invasive technology seems to be slowly introduced into city buses and trolley cars. Perhaps the instigators expect less resistance if this bane is slowly introduced? You may have witnessed the slow and random intrusion of TVs on some buses?

Recently an editorial in the Los Angelos Times, “Bus-see TV”, announced that Transit Television Network TNN has installed 4,700 television monitors on over 2000 buses on the last few years trying to capitalize on 18 to 34 year olds as potential disposable income market. But why should people of all ages (many riders are elderly) be subject to the smarmy, hyper-kinetic, jolt-noisome noise, and non-intellectual crap marketed to young people?

Trolley riders may be less affluent financially but they are not the fools some seem to think. The time has come to say: “Stop!!” “You forget who is the customer—who may not always be right—but who is sometimes justifiably indignant in his or her opinion—and his or her opinion does in fact matter.” --Read More--

Carmel Hotel Workers Win Struggle for Better Contract

Santa Cruz, CA, 19.01.2007 14:39

Carmel, CA. Union workers at the Quail Lodge voted Wednesday, January 17, to ratify a new union labor contract with the hotel. 89 percent of the voting members of UNITEHERE! Local 483 approved the 3-year deal, which calls for up to $3.65 per hour in additional wages and benefits over the life of the contract. The raises are retroactive to August 1, 2006.

A tentative agreement reached late Friday avoided a Quail Lodge management-threatened lockout of the 150 hotel union employees on Monday, January 15. The contract vote ends a confrontational 5-month negotiation process, including an employee strike authorization vote, several public demonstrations at the hotel with over 100 participants, and the union's sixteen legal filings with the federal National Labor Relations Board against the hotel.

"It took us a while, but we ended up with a good total package to help our families. We kept our health plan. We got good raises, some more in our pension fund, and another paid holiday," said Quail Lodge maintenance worker and Local 483 negotiating committee member, Sergio Vasquez.

The Union contract at Quail Lodge follows similar agreements dating back to September at the Hyatt Regency Monterey, Park Hyatt Carmel Highlands, Monterey Beach Resort, Bay Park Hotel, La Playa Hotel, Asilomar Conference Center, and Pine Inn. While the 3-year term of the Quail Lodge agreement is one year shorter than the other contracts, the wages in the second and third year are higher. The eight union contracts cover more than 1,000 hospitality workers on the Monterey Peninsula. The Hilton Garden Inn, Lodge at Pebble Beach, Carmel Mission Inn, and Monterey Bay Travelodge are the remaining area hotels where new union contracts are yet to be negotiated.
