Persconferentie en tentenkamp te Charleroi – 17 januari 2007



Bear Creek Trail – Smith Mountain - Buddhist Youth Group volunteers

Portland, 23.01.2007 08:39

On January 21'st, the San Gabriel Mountain Trailbuilders teamed up once again with the Buddhist Youth Group that we had worked with previously on 20/Nov/2005.

The trail restoration, maintenance, and building effort is part of an on-going program in the San Gabriel River Ranger District of the Angeles National Forest to provide reasonably safe recreation to the region's six or seven million "local" residents.

The region is unique. As a "pocket forest" surrounded by heavily and densely populated cities, on any given week end during the Summer the San Gabriel River Ranger District can boast of having 10,000 visitors and that number of people bring with them a number of problems, some of which (such as erosion, pollution of drinkable water, the building of wading pools along the river using rock dams, and medical mishaps caused by falling) can be mitigated by the efforts of volunteer organizations such as the SGMTBs.



&quot;Homeless&quot; Tent Encampment in Olympia Feb 1

Portland, 23.01.2007 08:39

On February 1, the "Poor" Peoples Union of Olympia, WA will set up a "homeless" tent encampment in response to a new city ordinance which goes into effect on February 1, making it virtually illegal to be on the street ("homeless") in Olympia. The exact location will not be revealed until the last minute, however it will be a highly visible protest. The eventual goals are to find a permanant location where the people can have a long term, autonomously run encampment and locations where people can be housed in autonomous, democraticly run communities.

The Poor People's Union, since its inception, has sought to overturn the ordinances targeted at the "homeless". Our intitial idea was to have a referendum on the ordinance and gather enough signatures for it. Over the past weeks, however, it has become clear that the PPU will not be able to expediently stop the ordinances from going into effect and has decided to put a referendum off for the time being.



Columbia Estuary Industrialization

Portland, 23.01.2007 08:39

Oregon's Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will be holding two hearings to receive public input regarding how it should evaluate the impacts of multiple large industrial projects along the Lower Columbia. Tuesday, Jan. 23 in Knappa, OR. Tuesday, Jan. 31 in Clatskanie.

This is your chance to tell DEQ that you want them to stand up for the Columbia Estuary and take a strong stance against LNG and Coal projects that threaten the water, land, air and people of the Estuary.



Citizens Tribunal, day 2 only

Portland, 23.01.2007 08:39

Today (day 2) began with a 2.5-hour drive (including a rest coffee stop) to the campus building in my friend, Marion Ward's hybrid. Marion is very active in Vets for Peace and other peace groups. Initially we saw 3 videos featuring Francis Boyle, Marjorie Cohn and Eman Khammas. Khammas is an Iraqi journalist and human rights advocate who told about the horrors the Iraqi's endure daily and how her daughter could not take living in fear anymore, and left the country. Khammas feared for her life also, and is sought asylum in Spain where she lives today.

Two Iraq war veterans, Darrell Anderson and Chanan Suarez-Diaz gave front-line accounts. Anderson was in Portland recently and while I read his account on Indymedia, it is NOT the same as hearing him live. I had tears in my eyes during his talk. He was ordered to shoot even civilians if a shot came in their area, however, he never shot his rifle even once the entire time! Diaz shot his rifle 5 times, but never at a civilian. Some who resisted have returned to the US from Canada as a result of Watada's and others speaking out.



Miguel Angel de Los Santos Cruz Takes on Case in the Death of Brad Will

Portland, 23.01.2007 08:39

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.

An alternative to militarized parade

San Diego, 23.01.2007 04:09

A new San Diego coalition offers an alternative to the militarized Martin Luther King Day parade.

The event was organized by the King/Chávez Coalition for Justice and Unity, which was formed after last’s years King Day Parade. A diverse group of community members came together to discuss what to do about the parade, which had been moved out of the community and had become disturbingly militarized and completely co-opted by corporate interests. The King Day Parade has turned into a tourist attraction that represents everything that Martin Luther King was against.

Organizers plan to return to this park in 2008, but to also have a march through the community to the park.

WHY IS LEONARD STILL IN PRISON?

San Diego, 23.01.2007 03:39

Yes!, American Indian Movement Activist, Leader and Warrior Leonard Peltier is STILL IN PRISON! The 6th of February 2007 marks the 31st Anniversary of the illegal arrest and false imprisonment of Political Prisoner Leonard Peltier.

According to one of Mr. Peltier's lawyers, Barry Bachrach, "virtually every known AIM leader in the United States was incarcerated in either state or federal prisons since (or even before) the organization's formal emergence in 1968, some repeatedly. After the 1973 siege of Wounded Knee (SD), for example, the FBI caused 542 separate charges to be filed against those it identified as “key AIM leaders”. This resulted in only 15 convictions, all on such petty or contrived offenses as “interfering with a federal officer in the performance of his duty”.

Kennedy calls for Congressional authorization of &quot;surge,&quot; dodges oil profit question

DC, 22.01.2007 21:10

Coming out of the studios of Meet The Press today [Sunday, Jan. 21], Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) said he expected President Bush to "describe a different Iraq than … most Americans understand and recognize" in Tuesday's upcoming State of the Union address. He also said "the American people are entitled to require the President to come to Congress to get an authorization…."

Kennedy noted that the previous authorization of force was predicated on allegations of Hussein's government violating UN resolutions, the alleged Iraqi possession of "Weapons of Mass Destruction," and alleged links with Al Qaeda. The latter points being conditions now widely acknowledged not to have existed (although the Senator did not acknowledge that directly).



In Remembrance: Women Who Died from Illegal and Unsafe Abortions

DC, 22.01.2007 21:10

The seven women below are just a small representation of the countless women who have died because they did not have access to safe and legal abortions. Most of these women died before Roe v. Wade offered them a safe alternative. However, women continue to die and suffer injury due to current restrictions that particularly affect young women and poor women. Our government is now controlled by conservative leaders who are extremely hostile to women's reproductive rights. 1/22/07 5pm Vigil: Supreme Court, 1st & E. Capitol Streets NE Who Decides?

Trolleybus to return to Nottingham?

United Kingdom, 22.01.2007 21:09

Nottingham used to run a vast network of trolleybusses. The first trolley was introduced in 1927 and in 1930 it had the largest fleet in the country. The last trolley bus operated in Nottingham until June 1966. Recently a new book was launched on the history of Nottingham’s Trolleybusses, and it does raise the question if bringing them back might become the way forward in making our public transport system ready in the face of climate catastrophy. Some cities in Europe are upgrading their trolley bus networks and some are even planning the construction of new ones. With Britain having such as vast history on the ‘old trolley’, wouldn’t it be worth looking into the possibility of returning to this potential zero-emission way of transport?

It’s not a difficult one. But it is one that demands we act together as if our lives depended on it, because for many of our communities, they do. Put simply the question is this: What does media reform mean to us?....

January 22nd &quot;Pill Bottle Dumps&quot; to Demand an End to the DEA Raids

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.01.2007 09:39

On Monday, January 22nd DEA "Pill Bottle Dump" actions will be held at local federal buildings around California. Events have been scheduled for 12pm at federal buildings in cities such as Sacramento. The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has raided a number of California dispensaries and grow facilities in the last two months. This has limited safe access to cannabis for bona-fide patients statewide. Americans for Safe Access is demanding an end to DEA raids on patients and providers who are abiding by state law.

&quot;We Love Our Dogs&quot; (Diva Dog report back)

Portland, 22.01.2007 08:40

I went to see Diva Dog and Off the Chain last night. It was a free show, presented by the rescue organization Positively Pitbull. Actually, I intended to just see Diva Dog, and was assured by one of the presenters of this event that it would play
first. I had been warned that Off the Chain was brutally graphic, and I did not want to subject myself to the images I knew it would contain. So I kind of resent the fact that, despite assurances to the contrary, they showed Off the Chain first, and I was forced to sit through it. ("Everyone should see this," I was told by a presenter. However, given the setting -- a room full of people who love dogs and animal rights activists who are already in the struggle against dog fighting -- I am not sure that it was necessary to subject us all to that. It was roughly akin to going to a gathering of radical vegans, and forcing them to sit through slaughter house videos... I mean, we know that already, that's why we're here.)



Folic Acid Inundation Not Such a Good Thing After All - Especially for Vegetarians/Vegans

Portland, 22.01.2007 08:40

You know, about 9 years ago the US govt mandated that all grain foods in the US be fortified with the B vitamin folic acid. Their reasons seemed sound enough: it had been learned that a shortage of folic acid around the time of conception can damage fetuses. Specifically, babies were more likely to be born with open neural tube defects, such as spina bifida. But I remember at the time being concerned about the wisdom of supplementing an entire population in order to address a problem that, although devastating, affects such a tiny fraction of the population. (Even prior to the supplementation, the risk of spina bifida was less than 1 percent.) It seems that my concerns have been born out, especially for those of us who do not eat meat.

Citizens' Hearing on Legality of Iraq War and Occupation

Portland, 22.01.2007 08:40

About 400 people gathered each day to hear testimony before the Citizen's Hearing on the legality of the U.S. actions in Iraq. It is important to note that only one national TV station showed up to cover this event, and that station was from Japan. The mainstream media ignored this event.

This Tribunal was necessary because Lt. Ehren Watada has refused to deploy to Iraq. "It is my duty as a commissioned officer in the United States army to speak out against grave injustices," he stated. "My moral and legal obligation is to the constitution. Not to those who issue unlawful orders. I stand before you today because it is my job to serve and protect American soldiers and innocent Iraqis who have no voice. It is my conclusion that the war in Iraq is not only morally wrong, but also a breach of American law."



Bolivia: one year into the Morales government

NYC, 22.01.2007 08:08

Popular assembly in Cochabamba on January 16

On Tuesday, January 16th, a massive cabildo abierto (popular assembly) in Cochabamba, Bolivia's third largest city, decided to remove the prefecto (regional governor) and forced the consejeros departamentales (regional councillors) to install a people's prefecture. In doing so the masses, who have been on the streets since the beginning of the year, went over the heads of MAS aligned leaders of many of the peasant and trade union organisations and directly against the advice of the MAS government which recommended calm, negotiation and keeping everything within the legal framework.

This was the highest point of a developing mass movement for the resignation of the prefectos of La Paz and Cochabamba who have sided with the opposition prefectos of Santa Cruz, Beni, Pando and Tarija (the lowlands crescent of Bolivia) in their struggle for autonomy from the MAS national government and to defend their right of veto in the Constituent Assembly.

Od tragedii do skandalu. Antyfaszysta przypuszczalnie zakażał HIV, i co na to polskie media.

Poland, 21.01.2007 22:10

W ubiegłym tygodniu media obiegła wieść o tragediach, do jakich miał
doprowadzić Simon Moleke Njie, Kameruńczyk zamieszkały w Polsce,
uznany w 2003 roku za Antyfaszystę Roku przez Stowarzyszenie
Antyfaszystowskie Nigdy Więcej.

Media zareagowały na te doniesienia prawdziwym wysypem rewelacji i
oskarżeń, konstruując informacje o Kameruńczyku, który jest
podejrzewany o świadome zarażenie HIV kilkunastu kobiet. Jeszcze
zanim policja sprawdziła, czy Simon Moleke Njie faktycznie jest nosicielem
HIV i czy był świadomy tego faktu i jego konsekwencji, media wydały
na niego wyrok.
