Saturday 26th June will see the beginning of the preliminary hearings for the 29 Italian policemen and officers who face charges related to the brutal night time raid on the Diaz school (pics) in Genoa, Italy during the Anti-G8 demonstrations there in 2001, where scores of people were beaten, many left unconscious and hospitalised, before later being tortured in Bolzaneto detention centre.

At the same time in Switzerland the court case against four people from the Aubonne Bridge action at the 2003 G8 Summit in Evian will begin.

While the policeman who cut the ropes remains on duty, ironically, the four protesters, including Martin and the other climber, have all been charged with blocking the traffic and endangering human life! Alongside a European anti-repression meeting will take place on 26-27th June, to promote wider awareness as to the many different cases of repression that have happened recently and to discuss proposals and strategies for creating a stronger and more effective anti-repression network in Europe.

Justice for Palestine: tear down the Apartheid Wall!

United Kingdom, 17.09.2004 09:00

STOP PRESS FRIDAY 1600: WORLD COURT DECLARES WALL "ILLEGAL".

While the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, the Netherlands, prepares to give its advisory opinion on the Apartheid Wall on July 9th, the Wall in Palestine continues to destroy lives and lands at an ever-increasing pace. Four months of court deliberations have prompted international political immobility, but Palestinian resistance is growing. Whole villages have risen up to stop the Apartheid Wall and the devastating repression of the Israeli Occupation.



In light of the upcoming opinion from the ICJ, the Israeli government is trying to manipulate the truth and disguise the colonial foundation of its racist apartheid policy. The occupation forces have depicted a decision by their own High Court to move 30km of the Apartheid Wall as a Palestinian “victory”, but Palestinians see how, on the contrary, this decision validates Israel’s claim that the Wall is solely a security measure and how it states that the Wall can be built on Palestinian land.

A Week Of Resistance to BP And Big Oil

United Kingdom, 17.09.2004 08:00


A week long Exhibition of Resistance to BP and Big Oil, and the corporate hijacking of the arts is now under way on in London. A space has been squatted specially for the event [Photos]. The address is 50 Chalk Farm Road, Camden.

Update Tuesday 22nd: Another protest was called on Monday night during the BP sponsored awards ceremony at the Portrait Gallery. As protestors were gathering at around 7pm, four London Rising Tide activists chained themselves across the front door effectively shutting down the National Portrait Gallery. It was also announced that the alternative exhibition has been extended for a week, and it is now likely to be open until Saturday 26th June in the squatted gallery.


On Wednesday 16th climate change activists and artists held a 'Greenwash or US' Street Party outside BP HQ, many carrying artworks revealing a true portrait of an oil company. The street party then marched to the private view of the BP sponsored National Portrait Gallery Awards. When protesters tried to move towards the entrance of the National Gallery, police rapidly moved in and pushed people back. In the resulting scuffles one person got arrested for "not moving" [video of the arrest] The party then continued for several hours without any more incidents, and later in the evening it was followed by the opening of the art exhibition at the squatted venue [Report | Photos of street party].

Over the weekend, there will be daily workshops and events in the exhibition space as well as on the streets. These will include speakers from West Papua and Colombia, a Jam Night, film night, and lots of other fun stuff such as painting, subvertising, guerilla cinema, radio, food and discussion. See Programme of Events.

Naseh Ghafor must stay!

United Kingdom, 17.09.2004 07:00

Naseh Ghafor a resident of Burngreave, Sheffield, was on hunger strike for six weeks from the 8th July to oppose his deportation to Iraq. He had sewn up his lips and was refusing medical attention. He has now removed the stitches from his mouth and stopped his hunger strike.
He believes he will be killed if he is deported to Iraq. His father and brother were killed there and his sister and mother are missing. There is more detailed background information on the NCADC web site.
Local and national politicians are offering no hope to Naseh.

Local activists had organised a 24 hour rota to watch over Naseh while he was on hunger strike. Direct action, in the form of road blockades resulted in coverage in the local media and there was a demonstration from Burngreave into the centre of Sheffield on 21st August.


Daily vigil: 5pm, every day, on Ellesmere Green (top of Spital Hill) for Naseh Ghafor's right to live, stay and work in this country.

Protesters Stop Nuclear Weapons Convoy

United Kingdom, 17.09.2004 05:00


May 9 2004: Anti-Trident protesters twice stopped a nuclear weapons convoy in Stirling and Balloch. 6 People were arrested.
The protesters were from Trident Ploughshares, Stirling CND and Faslane Peace Camp.

Again a Nuke transport has been halted on the Scottish roads. The MoD regularly organises convoys to take Trident warheads to and from the Burghfield assembly plant to the Coulport store to be checked and maintained. Each warhead is believed to have the destructive power of 8 times the bomb which was dropped on Hiroshima.

A network of ordinary people called across the UK watch Nuke transports closely.[press release from Trident Ploughshares]



Our worst fears: Vote Tampering

San Diego, 17.09.2004 01:57

By entering a 2-digit code in a hidden location, a second set of votes is created in the Diebold central tabulator, a program installed in 1,000 locations, which controls both paper ballots and touch-screens, each system handling up to a million votes at a time. After invoking the 2-digit trigger, this second set of votes can be changed so that it no longer matches the correct set of votes. The voting system will then read the totals from the bogus vote set. It takes only seconds to change the votes, and to date not a single location in the U.S. has implemented security measures to fully mitigate the risks. It was designed and tested over a series of a dozen version adjustments, and has been in place for four years.



Confessions of a Troll

(from the Open Newswire): Well, I started out posting on this board to share my views. When I realized nobody gived a sh*t, I spewed my opinions in a stronger and less tolerant way. And when I realized that most of the opinions expressed on this board were so far away from my beliefs, and what I considered the truth, I just started to post comments I knew would piss people off.

protest tegen EU wapentuigtop in Noordwijk
Met veel wapengekletter is er vrijdag 17 en zaterdag 18 september in Noordwijk een top waar alle Europese ministers van defensie en daarmee ook een hoop lobbyisten neerstrijken. Onder de noemer "versterking van militaire capaciteiten" spreken ze onder andere over het Europees leger, dat volgens de Europese Grondwet overal ter wereld, op meerdere plaatsen tegelijk en 'preventief' moet ingrijpen bij 'crisissituaties'. Ook gaat de top gepaard met een heuse wapenshow.

Pier 57, DATs, City Council Hearings, and More

NYC, 16.09.2004 13:49

A few days ago, rumors circulated on this website that the Republican National Committe (RNC) itself leased the infamous Pier 57 to hold protesters during the convention. Now, bloggers with the website The Daily Kos are also on the case, and have collected a ton of information about the pier. As of yet, there has been no confirmation that the RNC leased Pier 57. [Read Daily Kos Updates]

We are also hearing reports that the City of New York is increasing the charges for about 10% of the protesters who took DATs. According to one poster, "this is a further example of the City using extra-judicial means to punish people for expressing their political views." However, many of the leagl issues surround DATs are unclear. As another poster wrote, "ideally, people who have been recently arraigned will post articles about their experiences and whether they got any nasty surprises when they went to court."
