Humanity For Homeless Halts Monday Night Meal

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2007 12:10

Tim Rumford writes: "It has been a sad and difficult time for me. During possibly the most important time in the war on poverty, I have had to stop the feeding program due to health reasons. I simply cannot do the physical part any longer. I am searching for help. Help comes easy, volunteers have come and gone who want to serve food, but volunteers who will really step up and pick up the food weekly and serve it is a different story.

It takes the right kind of person, someone who can deal with a multitude of different people and treat them all equally. A person who can relate and get to know the people it is serving. If such a person steps up, the feeding will continue." Read more

New Olivera Egg Farm Unwelcome in the San Joaquin Valley

San Francisco Bay Area, 05.04.2007 21:08

Animal rights and welfare groups have joined Stockton residents in opposing the development of a massive egg factory farm.

Despite numerous past complaints against Olivera, the San Joaquin County Planning Department is planning to grant the approval for the farm without an Environmental Impact Report.

Immigration Forum and Community Organizing in Watsonville

Santa Cruz, CA, 05.04.2007 08:38

On March 30th, 2007, César Chávez Day, the MigraWatch Network sponsored a forum on immigration at St Patrick's church in Watsonville. The forum featured guest speakers, a performance by Teatro Sin Fronteras, and group discussion of a plans of action for when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) come back to California's Central Coast.

The MigraWatch Network was formed after ICE, a branch of the Department of Homeland Security, conducted raids in Santa Cruz county on September 7-8, 2006. The sweeps were part of a nation-wide effort to round up people in violation of immigration laws, an effort ICE calls "Operation Return to Sender." During the September raids, 107 people were apprehended in Santa Cruz, Watsonville and Hollister. Raids continue to terrorize communities in all corners of the nation.

Locally, the MigraWatch Network is working with several organizations to build a safe and welcoming area for all people and to work on resolutions with local government declaring sanctuary for undocumented persons of all nationalities. One important part of the organizing is the MigraWatch Hotline, a partner project with the Resource Center for Nonviolence. The hotline serves as an emergency number to alert volunteers that the Migra are in the neighborhood. Volunteers arrive on the scene to document and provide witness to the actions of ICE.

Rockin' the Boat: Dec. 22, 1999 - Conversation with Mr. Bradlee, aka Brad Will

Santa Cruz, CA, 05.04.2007 08:38

V-Man writes, "While looking through some old cassette tapes, recently, I found this archived edition of Rockin' the Boat, dated December 22, 1999. This show features an interview and conversation with Mr Bradlee, aka Brad Will, who was murdered October 27, 2006 by government paramilitary forces in Oaxaca, Mexico, while documenting the popular uprising there. On this show, Mr. Bradlee and I discuss the founding of Steal This Radio, the NYC squatter's movement, and the WTO protests in Seattle, which had taken place a few weeks prior to this recording. Mr. Bradlee shares his thoughts on these toipics and more, and also sings, and reads poetry. The show also has music from Utah Phillips with Ani DiFranco, Casey Neill, Tchkung!, and David Rovics.

I uploaded the entire, uneditted portion of the show with Mr. Bradlee, and also cut out the song and poem as seperate files."

Spring Into Action Now!

United Kingdom, 04.04.2007 22:40

A busy week of workshops, gigs and actions around the issue of climate change has started in Nottingham today. Under the banner of 'Spring into Action' events are taking place in venues across the city. It will showcase practical solutions to climate change. From workshops on bike maintenance, local food production, community compost projects and strawbale building to concerts and performances, it promises to be an action packed week. It will also act as a showcase for existing projects in Nottingham including visits to Bestwood Country Park, Attenborough Nature Reserve, Hill Holt Woods and the Ecoworks project in St Anns. All the workshops are free! A lot of the events will take place at the central venue, also known as the J.B. Spray factory, which is located on Russell Street, Radford.

'Spring into Action' has been organised by Eastside Climate Action, a group made up of local people and groups inspired by the Camp for Climate Action. The week is all about inspiring, educating and empowering people to start making changes in their own lives and demonstrating practical alternatives, local projects and local campaigns in action. 'It is about changing our lifestyles, but also inspiring collective action to create the wider social change that is needed to deal with climate change. Climate change is the greatest threat humanity has ever faced, and we are already feeling its effects. Change is coming whether we like it or not. We need to make these changes sustainable and equitable.'

La politikistoj kaj la polico fajfas pri la justico

Kelkajn jarojn post la morto de la diktatoro ankoraŭ ne estas vera laŭjura ŝtato. La sendependo de la juĝa,leĝdona kaj ekzekutiva potencoj estas preskaŭ nevidebla, precipe en la aferoj rilate al sociaj movadoj.
En Katalunio, kaj post malpli ol du tutaj parlamentaj periodoj, evidentiĝis que la jugxa potenco ne tenis la devigan sendependon rilate al la ekzekutiva kaj ni vidis ke, kiam interesas al decidantoj en la registaro aŭ en la polico, oni povas subpreme fari justecon kaj povas enprizonigadi senkulpulojn. Oni devas revizii nur la aferojn, ekzemple, pri la malliberuloj de la 4a de februaro, pri la sturmo-taĉmento Dixan kaj, pli ĵuse, pri la kapto de Núria en Girona.
Krome, nun, juĝisto, kaj precipe ino, povas esti malpli grava ol policano, kiel okazas je la kataluna polico en Barcelono. Oni tion klare vidis dum la lastaj vakigoj de la Makabra, aŭ de la nura ejo okupita far inoj, la Mambo, vakigoj faritaj sen juĝista ordono kaj kun la surprizo de la priresponda juĝisto mem.

Krome en urbo Valencio novnazia organizo kunvokis nazian koncerton dum la valencia festo "Les falles", kio kaŭzis alarmon ĉe ĉiuspecaj grupoj, asocioj kaj kontraŭfaŝistoj de la urbo.

Celebrating social change

London, Ontario, 04.04.2007 21:07

Although my articles usually serve to inform about problems in the world and what needs to change, I felt that this week’s article needed a change in focus. It is not enough to simply point out the problems that exist in our world. It is not enough to denounce the negative actions taken by others. We must work for social change. We must acknowledge the progress being made, and the organizations and individuals contributing positively to the cause. We must also celebrate the achievements and progress in the fight for social justice.

Locals Protest Vulture Capitalists and the Iraqi War

Baltimore, 04.04.2007 20:12

On March 19, 2007, the Baltimore City Council unanimously approved a Resolution condemning the Iraqi War, the lies that got us into it, George W. Bush’s insane “Surge,” and demanded the troops be “safely” withdrawn from that conflict. On that same night, a Peace Rally was held at St. Vincent de Paul RC Church. The Rev. Heber Brown III said: “It’s time for us to raise hell for peace in our churches.” The event was sponsored by the local UPJ group.

Reporter Josh Wolf Freed

NYC, 04.04.2007 19:41

On April 3rd, independent reporter Josh Wolf was freed from federal custody after spending 7 1/2 months in prison for failing to turn over video footage to a federal grand jury. The unedited video was the target of the federal grand jury subpoena that caused him to be held at the federal holding facility, in Dublin, CA for over 226 days, a record amount of time for any journalist in U.S. history.

That morning, Josh wrote on his blog, "During the course of this saga I have repeatedly offered to allow a judge to be the arbiter over whether or not my video material has any evidentiary value. Today, you the public have the opportunity to be the judge and I am confident you will see, as I do, that there is nothing of value in this unpublished footage."

A rally and press conference was held at 5pm on the steps of SF City Hall.

Bristol Indymedia: Local Elections Round-Up

Bristol, 04.04.2007 16:38

2007 Local Election Polling Stations With 4 weeks to go until the May 2007 Local Elections, Bristol Indymedia rounds up recent posts to the newswire. Bristol Indymedia Election Guidelines. The Investigator writes: One of the ex-Bristolian editors has started a website to expose corruption in the Tory party. Sarah CO writes: John Kiely the LIb Dem councillor for Easton is destroying our elderly care services. He is responsible for pushing through a deal to privatise home care services which will inevitably lead to a decrease in working conditions for the home carers and a decrease in quality of service for the clients. (eg.just as it has in public transport, refuse collection etc.) This leaves some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in our society at risk. The Bristol Blogger writes: Meet Steve Comer ... He’s a Liberal Democrat and a Bristol City Councillor. He’s quite influential in Bristol because he’s an Executive Member and sits on the Cabinet that takes decisions about the city. Steve is a very busy man as he also has another job sitting on the National Executive of the PCS (Public and Commercial Services Union). This is the civil serviçe union dominated by the far left that has a reputation for militancy and robustly taking on New Labour over public service cuts, privatisation, pensions and the growth of fat cat consultants in the public sector.
