Nashville's Homeless Ask Who Is Getting Affordable Housing at Mayor's Summit

Tennessee, 31.01.2007 19:10

Nashville's homeless and friends held a brief rally today before the the Mayor's Housing Summit, hoping to draw the ear of the Mayor and other decision makers. The Mayor’s Fourth Housing Summit today focused on affordable housing. The Mayor was discussing Nashville's successes including the thousands of new affordable housing units since his original commitment in 2000 to build 35,000 affordable housing units by 2010. Members of the Homeless Power Project contends that affordable housing plans are not addressing the needs of the homeless community. The Nashville Homeless Power Project, homeless and formerly homeless people, brought several of their homeless members to the summit to listen to the Mayor's speech and advocate for more housing.



Inter-County connector dominates MoCo hearing on transportation

Update: MO Marine must redeploy after he, mom protest in DC

Saint Louis, 31.01.2007 17:38

Tina Richards and her Marine son Cloy need your help for them and for all families being destroyed by this war. Cloy served two horrific tours in Iraq (read/listen here) and now is back home in Salem MO, attending college, rebuilding his life. Tina and Cloy, with many hundreds of other active military families and veterans, were in the forefront of Saturday's huge peace march in Washington DC. Now the Marines want to redeploy Cloy. Because of his medical conditions and Tina's advocacy, it does not seem likely that they will actually redeploy him. But there are thousands of other soldiers and marines facing this back-door draft, disrupting their families and futures.

Oklahoma Independents Call for More Voter Choice

Oklahoma, 31.01.2007 16:38

Support urged for ballot access reform bill Oklahoma was the only state with just two choices for president in 2004. Voter choice again suffered in the 2006 general election, where half of state legislature races went unopposed. This lack of voter choice is due in part to Oklahoma ballot access laws, considered the most restrictive in the nation. A bill recently introduced in the Oklahoma legislature (HB 1359 and SB 28) would reform ballot access for third parties, returning the number of signatures required back to 5,000 -- the figure used from 1924 until 1974. Oklahoma was the only state with just two choices for president in 2004. Voter choice again suffered in the 2006 general election, where half of state legislature races went unopposed.

Voter choice again suffered in the 2006 general election, where half of state legislature races went unopposed. This lack of voter choice is due in part to Oklahoma ballot access laws, considered the most restrictive in the nation. OKIES supports the recently introduced legislation for Ballot Access Reform (HB 1359 and SB 28). This reform would return the number of signatures for recognition of political party back to 5,000; the number required in Oklahoma from 1924 until 1974. Richard Winger, editor of Ballot Access News, recently wrote, “This is about VOTER rights…People have a right to vote for the candidate of their choice. It's isn't a free election otherwise. Even the former president of Iran has criticized the U.S. for our lack of freedom in our elections. It would help the U.S. image worldwide if Oklahoma would fix this dreadful blot.” Addressing the concern that many parties would fill the ballot, Winger reminded us that during the fifty years “Oklahoma required 5,000 signatures for parties to get on the ballot, Oklahoma never had more than 4 parties on the ballot, including the Democratic & Republican Parties.” Also, Oklahoma voters had no trouble choosing from nine Democratic presidential candidates in 2004. Commenting on the recent state Senate power sharing agreement, Senate Co-President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee said leaders "put aside partisanship” because “Republicans and Democrats alike realize that we must work together to make sure the people’s business gets done.” OKIES coordinator David Splinter said, “We hope the Senate will truly put partisanship aside, and allow more voter choice by passing ballot access reform." The Oklahoma Coalition of Independents (OKIES) supports greater voter choice and policies that give voters a stronger say in government. Visit the OKIES website at www.OKIES.info



OPEN CALL: How can Indymedia improve discussions and coverage?

NYC, 31.01.2007 16:09

It's been a while since I saw a discussion here about the quality of coverage and the typcially nasty comments that plague this open-publishing. We need Indymedia for what it can do at its best (Think F15, The Indypendent, the RNC). But for too long, the wire has been dominated by cranks despite the best efforts of the site's administrators. So what is to be done with Indymedia? How can NYC Indymedia improve this situation.



LLUITA GLOBAL PEL PLANETA

Valencia, 31.01.2007 15:38

LLUITA GLOBAL PEL PLANETA
Aquest any 2007 començava amb una proposta de la Comissió Europea de reduir la pol·lució amb més centrals nuclears, i així complir el protocol de Kiot (Wikipedia). Aquesta setmana, via correu electrònic ens han convocat l’1 de febrer per a una apagada massiva de 19:55 a 20:00. Hem de ser conscients que la lluita pel manteniment del nostre planeta no és una qüestió d’ecologia, i que les lluites parcials no van a tindre sentit ni efecte sino ataquen l’arrel del problema: el capitalisme. Totes aquestes són un bon exemple:
Nova Massa Critica a València ++ El dissabte 25 totes a Manuel (Ribera Alta) contra l’alta tensió ++ Subestación de Patraix: sentencia del TSJ ++ Subestación de Patraix (Valencia): compromiso de la Síndica de Greuges ++ Subestación de Patraix (Valencia): reunión con la síndica de greuges ++ Subestación de Patraix: cadena humana del 19-12-06 ++ Subestación de Patraix: la licencia de actividad es una pantomima ++ Castelló: Manifestació >>> dissabte 27 de gener. 12:00h a La Farola: Què estem fent amb la nostra terra? ++ Imatges mani: què estan fent amb la nostra terra? ++ Per què dir NO a les centrals eòliques del Comtat i la Marina Alta? ++

Anti-recruitment/militarism action in Olympia

Portland, 31.01.2007 12:39

There will be an anti-recruitment/militarism action in Olympia on Feb 24th at 10:00 AM rather than 1:00 PM, as the previous post indicated. We will meet at Yauger Park on the West Side of Olympia. Yauger Park is pretty, so, to be more specific, we will be meeting at the North Eastern most corner of the park, right behind Safeway and the skatepark. From there, it is only a 1 minute walk to the recruiting center.

This is a decentralized event. Every independent act of promotion for this thing is more than welcomed, it is absolutely neccesary. Let's keep pushing it. Make sure you are there. We need to be in a state of revolt every day of our lives and actions such as these need to occur more often, independent of the umbrella-groups which have dominated the "movement" since the war began.



Lone Vet Report And Rant

Portland, 31.01.2007 12:39

Will be in front of Sen. Wyden's office on Thursday, Feb 1-2007 from 11:45AM to about 1:30 PM. I truly believe the dems have to be kicked in the ass every few days or they will take the easy way out of this mess called the Occupation of Iraq.

Almost everyday I hear some NeoCon or a supporter of the Bush madness say something like, "We have not been attacked since 9/11 and that shows that Bush is doing a good job." I have to take deep breaths and say calming things under my breath in order not to throw something. We have been attacked again and again but not by al Qaeda.

We have been attacked by our own government in every way you can imagine, in our homes---in our churches---in our privacy---in our souls. The Bush administration has tortured, murdered and caused the rest of the world to wonder what terrible mental disease has struck the United States of America. This new illness should be called "Mental Syphilis." The Bill of Rights is now just a piece of paper, and Bush likes to make paper planes out of a copy of the Constitution. Wars and more wars!



GREECE: half of all universities occupied! 3 weeks of struggle… and it continues!!

Portland, 31.01.2007 12:39

Greek universities are paralyzed. More than half of faculties nation wide (Universities and Colleges) are occupied by the students who refuse the privatization of Greek education system .Every day General Assemblies are organized and new faculties are added to the list. At side of the students we find also the university lecturer, primary and secondary education teachers and several trade-unions.

In the center of this new social explosion is the government's will (with the explicit agreement of the party of opposition, the PASOK, Socialist Party) to revise Article 16 of the Greek Constitution. This article guarantees a high quality, free and especially public education for all Greek citizens. It declares without ambiguity that only the State can provide this service and that any private person is explicitly prohibited to do it in its place or in parallel.

San Diego SOAW Activist Sentenced to Prison

San Diego, 31.01.2007 10:40

California residents Joshua Harris and Cathy Webster of San Diego and Chico, respectively, were each sentenced to 2 months in federal prison today by the Columbus, Georgia federal court. Harris, 30, and Webster, 61, are among 16 defendants, ranging in age from 17 to 71, who were charged with trespassing after peacefully walking onto the Fort Benning military base in protest of the School of the Americas/Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (SOA/WHINSEC) this past November 19 during the annual School of the Americas Wach vigil at Ft. Benning.

"I'm here today because I believe there is a cause-effect relationship between the training that takes place at Ft. Benning and the human rights violations that continue to occur in Central and South America, even if the Pentagon does not recognize a cause-effect relationship," Harris said. Webster added, "I am a grandmother. I have come here to add my voice to the thousands who call for the closure of this notorious school which trains Latin American soldiers. There is a Hopi saying: 'When the grandmothers speak, the world will begin to heal.' Listen to the grandmothers."

The Bristol Alliance Against Urban 4x4s and Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways News The Bristol Alliance Against Urban 4x4s celebrated its launch on Saturday and the ruling Lib Dem Council Cabinet has amended its recommended budget in response to a campaign by Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways (FOSBR) for a more frequent service on the Severn Beach line. Updated 26th Jan. bristol4x4alliance writes: Campaigners gathered on College Green, after spending the morning issuing over 1,000 mock parking tickets to 4x4s in areas of central Bristol including Redland, Clifton and Broadmead. The paper tickets, which are placed harmlessly under the windscreen wipers of parked vehicles, are titled 'Poor Vehicle Choice' and challenge the need to own and drive a 4x4 vehicle in town. The dependent media were interested in the launch of the campaign. HTV shot a TV news item. Members of the group were interviewed by BBC Radio Bristol / GWR and Star. Stories appeared in the Bristol Evening Post and BBC Online. The Alliance aims to use peaceful and humorous means to raise awareness of the problems associated with 4x4 usage in cities like Bristol, led by concerns over road safety, road space and climate change.Full article. While Cat Hobbs writes: The ruling Lib Dem Council Cabinet has amended its recommended budget in response to a campaign by Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways (FOSBR) for a more frequent service on the Severn Beach line. The Lib Dems have decided to allocate money for an extra train to provide a more frequent service for a trial period from December 2007 until March 2010. FOSBR campaigner Julie Boston said 'We're delighted by the decision. It shows the Lib Dems are listening to local people, and that they want to use the local rail network to cut congestion. Running the more frequent service for a 2-3 year trial period is a great idea – it will provide enough time to increase passenger numbers and show the potential of the line.'

Bon Pastor: un barri sense futur. Comencen els enderrocs de les cases barates

Tots els intents que diferents entitats, internes i externes al barri, han estat portant endavant per salvar les 784 cases barates de Bon Pastor, patrimoni històric de la ciutat, o almenys per garantitzar una sortida digna als més vells dels seus habitants, estan fracassant dia rere dia davant l'arrogància i la despreocupació amb la qual el Patronat Municipal de l'Habitatge (Ajuntament de Barcelona) ha començat les obres de vandalització i tapiat de les cases fins i tot abans de què tots els veïns hagin abandonat els seus habitatges. El Patronat especula, l'Associació de Veïns col·labora, els mitjans de comunicació silencien les veus contràries... només quedarà la memòria de la lluita d'unes 200 persones majors del barri, en contra dels abusos de poder i del despreci d'uns polítics que es diuen d'esquerres, però que el que volen és aprofitar econòmicament els terrenys, enderrocar, construir, i apilar la gent en blocs de pisos. >>>escriu una carta de protesta!

Two Charges Dropped Against Lt. Ehren Watada

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.01.2007 19:09

On January 30th, Army prosecutors of Lt. Ehren Watada dropped two charges of "conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman." These two charges-each of which carried a one year possible prison sentence-were based on interviews Lt. Watada held with Oakland-based independent journalist Sarah Olson and Greg Kakesako of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. In exchange for the dropping of the two charges, Watada agreed to testify that he made the comments attributed to him by the reporters. Watada still faces up to four years' confinement on three other charges. Sarah Olson will no longer be forced to testify.



「NHK番組介入裁判」に全面勝訴/原告の「期待権」「自己決定権」認め被告3者に200万円賠償命令

原告の「期待権」「自己決定権」認め被告3者に200万円賠償命令  今回の判決のポイントは、「戦犯法廷」を報じた番組が、NHK上層部および政治家の介入によってズタズタに編集された結果、被取材者であり法廷の共同主催者である原告らの「期待権」が侵害されたこと。 A long-running court case on Japan's public broadcaster NHKs last minute changes to a program on a civil tribunal on sex slaves ('comfort women') in 2001, in which the late emperor Hirohito was found guilty of crimes against humanity, was concluded yesterday. NHK, a subsidiary and a contracting production company were sentenced to pay 2 million yen in damages to VAWW-NET Japan, an NGO that had contributed to the making of the program but found themselves misrepresented by last-minute edits. It was made clear by the judgment that the last minute edits were made in response to comments by politicians who held fincancial strings for NHK, including Shinzo Abe (now Prime minister)and overstepped the bounds of the editorial rights of the broadcaster, violating the 'right to expect' a fair representation by VAWW-NET Japan. The labornet article gives details from the post-verdict press conference held by VAWW-NET Japan. http://www.labornetjp.org/news/2007/0129-02/ http://www.labornetjp.org/news/2007/1170125610129staff01/

And Carl laughed

Saint Louis, 30.01.2007 15:38

Review and reflection on the production by Clayton High, "And Carl Laughed" about radical priest, Carl Kabat who is currently in jail for pouring blood and symbolically disarming a nuclear missle silo. Carl is 74, part of the local Catholic Worker community, an Oblate preist, and has spent about 16 years in prison for varies peace actions, often performed as a clown. The play is an poignant portrail of his life, filled with clowning, and original music.



ARTE INSURGENTE - Stencils and Woodcuts from the streets of Oaxaca

Portland, 30.01.2007 14:39

The popular social movement continues throughout the state of Oaxaca, even though many of its supporters have been forced underground, detained, disappeared and murdered. There are struggles over control of local town halls, over whether teachers supportive of the movement are allowed into their schools, and especially over the fate of political prisoners and others subject to human rights abuses.

Recently, a large collection of political art from an artists' collective in Oaxaca arrived in Portland. One of the artists described its significance as follows:

"In response to the lack of coverage of the social movement in Oaxaca by the mass media, young artists have taken to the streets. These young people have reclaimed urban art. In their works and on the walls in the cities, they portray the repression and the demands of the popular movement. Therein lies the value of their work as art and as a medium of communication. It is one of the strongest ways information is distributed concerning what has happened in Oaxaca."



The people want impeachment!

Portland, 30.01.2007 14:39

My elected official told me that people don't have a desire for the "nightmare of impeachment." It is an emotional appeal but this has much substance as cotton candy.

The people support an impeachment process even though the Democrats do not. The polls showing support for impeachment have been trending upward. The most recent Zogby poll interviewed 1,200 U.S. adults from October 29 through November 2, 2006 and found that 53% agreed with the statement: "If President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should consider holding him accountable through impeachment." 42% disagreed, and 5% said they didn't know or declined to answer. The poll has a +/- 2.9% margin of error.

The people want the Congress to hold the President accountable. Among Democrats and Independent voters--over 65% favoring an impeachment investigation.



ALERT! Military shipments will come through Olympia in March-April

Portland, 30.01.2007 14:39

It was just learned that the military will not be using any other NW port and they are definitely coming through Olympia. This all makes sense now for the following reasons.

1) Those arrested for their action during the last Port of Olympia protest have their court date on a day when there is likely to be shipments coming in.

2) New ordinances were just passed in Olympia banning sitting on the sidewalk. Some of the language in the ordinances can apply to protesters.

All of this points to a very disturbing amount of cooperation and communcation between the military, our local government and the county court system.

Sister speaks out: "He was ROTC so he could pay for college, and in 2000 when he signed up for ROTC none of this was happening. So he kind of got stuck...Right now he's in the last week of training before he's sent over to Baghdad."

Father speaks out: "Let's be fair. If my son goes, his daughters go. If working people's kids have to go then he's a worker too."

Sister and Father interviews in two video clips here-
