Francia: Indymedia perseguita per aver denunciato trattamento immigrati

Switzerland, 17.04.2007 22:07

Il prossimo 19 aprile, un mediattivista attivo in indymedia Lille sarà chiamato a comparire davanti ad una corte per un processo contro di lui a Boulogne, in Francia. Le accuse riguardano una pubblicazione avvenuta nel giugno 2004 e sono state mosse dal capo del CRS (Compagnies Républicaines de Sécurité, il corpo speciale della polizia con compiti anti-sommossa) e da Domenique Villepin, primo ministro francese. Il ragazzo sara giudicato per "pubblica diffamazione della polizia". La pubblicazione in questione riguarda la denuncia delle violenze perpetrate dalle agenti verso i rifugiati durante un trasferimento a Sint-Silence, nel nord nella Francia. La giustizia francese si sta accanendo contro questa persona, ritenendola il direttore del nodo IMC di Lille nonostante è ben risaputo che i collettivi di Indymedia non possiedono né direttori né presidenti. In quanto collettivi vige l'orizzontalità senza gerarchia, e i siti funzionano grazie ad un sistema di pubblicazione aperta, che permette a chiunque di pubblicare un articolo, purché questo rispetti la locale politica editoriale. In questo caso Indymedia è stato lo strumento di denucia per l'operato della polizia francese. In una nota, il collettivo di IMC Lille ha affermato che continuerà a mantenere in rete le pubblicazioni e che supporterà l'accusato, essendo questa una "causa diretta ad intimidire e/o a tacere un centro mediatico alternativo che utilizza questi metodi e che illustra ugualmente come alla giustizia e alla polizia preme far tacere le donne e gli uomini rifugiati e celare la violenza politica dell'amministrazione sui migranti nel nord del paese". Sempre nella nota il collettivo invita alla pubblicazione di materiale sulla situazione del trasferimento di migranti al nord e sulla persecuzione della rete d'Indymedia. :: leggi le note di CMI Lille (in francese) :: La legge francese proibisce la rivelazione di immagini violente (in inglese) ::CMI Lille (Francia)

A 4x4 Mayor: Are You What You Drive? (Or that you drive at all!)

Bristol, 17.04.2007 18:38

Should Abdul Malik be the next mayor of Bristol? Questions on his eco-credentials... Should Abdul Malik be the next mayor of Bristol? Questions on his eco-credentials... Lee Evans writes: A copy of a letter written to Gary Hopkins giving his support to Abdul Malik as the next mayor of Bristol in which he describes Mr Malik as 'a great advert for the city' and a 'really great advert of an inner-city bloke making good'. Read on to get an alternative point of view...Dear Mr Hopkins, I am writing in response to your comments in the Bristol Evening Post of 12th April regarding the selection of the next lord mayor, Abdul Malik. This is not a topic that would usually interest me but on this occasion I feel obliged to challenge your claims made in the short article. I hope this will help achieve a balanced view of the suitability of Mr Malik’s role as a councillor and a potential lord mayor....You say that ‘Mr Malik is a great advert for the city’ and ‘He is a really great advert for an inner-city bloke making good’. But what concerns me is Mr Malik’s values and the values of the people, such as yourself, who wish to appoint Mr Malik...I do not understand the criteria for selecting a lord mayor but I don’t think that ‘an inner city bloke making good’ is sufficient reason. There are probably many wealthy inner-city blokes driving £40,000 off road vehicles but that should not make them suitable electoral candidates or 'great adverts for the city.' Instead you should, I believe, be looking to appoint someone with sound environmental credentials who will lead by example by using public transport, cycling and walking wherever possible...

Today peace activists gathered together at Salmon Springs in Downtown Portland on the Willamette and turned the river red to signify the blood of those killed in the latest war for money, power, and control.

Video File: Oregon Citizens Arrested for Attempting To Speak With Senator Smith

Portland, 17.04.2007 15:39

Following a brief rally in front of the Portland World Trade Center, where Oregon Sen. Gordon Smith has his offices, six of his constituency were stopped by building security at the foot of the escalator and arrested for trespassing. Their only "crime" was wishing to speak to their elected Senator, or one of his aides concerning the Iraq War. This is the ninth time since the first of the year that Oregon citizens have been denied access to their elected official, and there have been numerous arrests over this time period.

The group, Defund the War have made a commitment to pressure Sen. Smith to stand behind the speech he made early in this year, condemning the war and withdrawing his support for it. Quoting Sen, Smith, "I, for one, am at the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way, being blown up by the same bombs day after day."

Should the fact of private ownership trump a citizens right of access to their elected officials? As Peter points out in the video, it is against the law to pass any law denying a citizen this access.

From PCASC: As May Day approaches, ICE (aka la migra, formerly known as the INS) is picking up their campaign of raids targeting the Latino community.

¡Gigante: Despierta! Giant: Awake!

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.04.2007 07:39

In 2006, a historic mobilization for immigrant rights swept the US as millions took to the streets. Corporate news media predictably covered the marches with a mix of surprise, ignorance, and racism, yet grassroots media activists were there to document the voices and the stories behind this mass movement. ¡Gigante: Despierta! ("Giant: Awake!") is a DVD compilation of short films from around the U.S. documenting the story of May Day 2006, due to hit the streets in the weeks before May 1, 2007. The project was shot, edited, and brought together by a network of independent video activists, graphic designers, community organizers, musicians, and immigrant rights activists.

San Diego Reclaim the Streets: Summary

San Diego, 16.04.2007 17:38

On Friday, 100-200 people came together for a 3 hour Reclaim the Streets street party, marching all over downtown San Diego with music, puppets, glitter, costumes, dancing, jumping and lots and lots of FUN. The partiers included giant bunnies, zombies and a foot-powered City Heights Free Skool bus. The dancing throng occupied downtown streets normally reserved for overconsuming tourists in the face of heavy police presence featuring two undercovers, who stood out like anarchists at a corporate board meeting. Many people joined the party off the sidewalks but others were confused, despite huge banners saying "ReclAim the Streets" and "Lets PArty!"

The night ended with the SDPD beating and arresting three nonviolent partiers, among them an independent media videographer, and pursuing and pepper-spraying the dwindling crowd. In a replay of past SDPD attempts to silence political dissent, bogus charges included felony assault for one arrestee and misdemeanors for the other two. All were released by late Sunday evening following posting of bond or bail. A protest against police brutality both north and south of the border will take place at an awards ceremony for Vicente Fox in downtown San Diego on April 25, to be held across the street from friday's police riot.

Die Polizei hatte durch Denunziation einer AnwohnerIn Verdacht geschöpft und entdeckte in mehreren in einem Nachbarort abgestellten Wagen Infrastruktur und weitere Hinweise auf die Aktion. Trotz der deutlichen Informationen und mehrfacher Kontrollen des betreffenden Ackers bemerkten die PolzistInnen die noch auf dem Boden liegende mehr als 30 Meter lange Holzkonstruktion und die dort befindlichen AktivistInnen nicht und zogen unverrichteter Dinge ab. Erst ein blöder Zufall sollte zur Entdeckung führen...

Removing a blight on our landscape - GM trials return to UK

United Kingdom, 16.04.2007 10:41

This month a controversial experimental genetically modified potato crop is due to be planted in the UK by the German chemical giant BASF (offshoot of the infamous AG Farben). DEFRA initially gave approval in December for BASF to undertake trials at two sites, one in Cambridgeshire and the other initially in Derbyshire until the farmer pulled out.

Michael Wilkin, of Humber Lane, Welwick near Hull agreed to step in to replace the Derbyshire trial. Other farmers and local residents have urged him not to plant the experimental crop. He said: "We never expected there to be so much fuss. If we had realised what public opinion would have been like, we would never have agreed ... I've spoken to friends who are against it, then when they have found out it's me who has agreed to do it, they have realised it must be safe because I am trustworthy."

Sue Jolliffe, of FoE Hull and East Riding, said: "We do not want this farmer to become a victim of hate, but we want him to listen to our considerations carefully."

In Cambridge on April 14th protest walk took place. Meanwhile April 20th is the end of the consultation period for the new location near Hull and the crop is likely to be planted soon after. A national public rally will take place in Hull on the 21st April. Transport from around the country is being organised. If you can organise in your area, distribute leaflets, offer car-share, etc, please get in touch with the campaign via rally@mutatoes.org or on 0113 262 9365.

Detenido por decirle la verdad a Zapatero

Canarias, 16.04.2007 00:10

El vicepresidente de la Asociación Canaria de Amigos del Pueblo Saharaui, Alberto Negrín, fue expulsado del mitin del P$O€ celebrado ayer sábado, por decirle la verdad al presidente del Gobierno José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, en el auditorio de Santa Cruz de Tenerife. El activista pro-derechos humanos, sentado en las escaleras centrales del auditorio, mostró una bandera del Sáhara Occidental e interrumpió la intervención de Zapatero cuando éste hablaba sobre los "caladeros marroquíes", y declaraba su compromiso de que llegarían allí 37 barcos canarios. Ese fue el momento elegido por el activista para exclamar: "para vender el Sahara". Inmediatamente, miembros de seguridad, se dirigieron hasta él y le pidieron que abandonara la sala, petición a la que se opuso con un movimiento de cabeza de lado a lado. Ante la negativa, los vigilantes levantaron al hombre y lo portaron hasta la salida ubicada en la parte alta y central del auditorio, al final de las escaleras. Alberto, estuvo más de tres horas detenido ilegítimamente, sin otra acusación que la de ejercer su derecho a la denuncia del saqueo de las riquezas del pueblo saharaui . En Canarias, cómo en España, no hay libertad de expresión. Pero sí hay libertad para pisotear el derecho internacional, para venderle armas al genocida y para repartirse el saqueo de unas riquezas, que sólo le pertenecen al pueblo saharaui.
