1. Mai 2007 - Wir wollen die soziale Revolution!

Switzerland, 22.04.2007 15:07

Von Milwaukee nach Wellington, von Paris nach Bueons Aires: 1. Mai 2007 - Strasse frei! Also, organisiert euch und bildet Banden. Wir haben eine Revolution zu gewinnen...

1886 demonstrierten in Chicago mehrere 100‘000 Menschen für den Achtstundentag. Am 3. Mai 1886 wurden in Chicago zwei Arbeiter von der Polizei getötet, worauf am 4. Mai eine Demonstration stattfand. Bei dieser Demonstration auf dem Haymarket wurde von Unbekannten eine Bombe geworfen. Sieben Polizisten wurden getötet und über 70 verletzt. Daraufhin schoss die Polizei in die Menge, tötete vier Arbeiter und verletzte viele. Nach diesen Ereignissen wurden sieben Anarchisten ohne jegliche Beweisgrundlagen verhaftet und zum Tode oder zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt.

"Ich wurde hier in diesen Raum des Mordes angeklat und der Anarchie für schuldig erklärt. [...] Wenn die herrschende Klasse denkt, sie vernichte auch die Anarchie, indem sie einige AnarchistInnen hängt, hat sie sich schwer getäuscht. AnarchistInnen lieben ihre Prinzipien mehr als ihr Leben. EinE AnarchistIn ist immer bereit, für ihre Prinzipien zu sterben." Adolph Fischer in seiner Rede im Haymarket Prozess in Chicago bevor das Todesurteil vollstreckt wurde (1887)

Occupation at Whakakoro

Aotearoa, 22.04.2007 13:11

Ko te maunga, Ko te Awa, Ko te Tangata, He kopu puta tahi. "We all have made our sacrifices to make this stand and will continue to do so on behalf of the other whanau who are away and on behalf of the generations to come. We dont do this for MONEY, we do this for the return of the whenua o Tatau Tupuna," writes Richard Murray. Ngati Haua is occupying their ancestral Maunga Whakakoro in the far north of Aotearoa to stop it from being alienated from the Hapu (tribe) forever. In 1992 Whakakoro was occupied in protest over Whakakoro being sold by 3rd generation farmer Frank Geddes to 4 million dollar lotto winner Robert Buchanan for $700 000.00. In 2005 He it was sold for $4.5 million to high profile property developer Kim Spencer who had intensions of subdividing Whakakoro into 33 blocks and selling those blocks off for approx 1 million dollars each but who sold it to Philip Parker. Parker was invited to Whangape Marae to introduce himself and said that he was not given any information about Ngati Haua and their claim to Whakakoro. He is currently taking legal proceedings against Kim Spencer and others that lured him into this dispute. He supports our claim to have the land returned and has cancelled the sale as a result. The financiers, bankers, Property developers are all trying to get themselves out of the financial mess they are in. "We need to stop the mortgagee tender by first mortgagers Property Funding Ltd and brokered by Barfoot and Thompson which closes at the end of the month. We need to stop any Property developers purchasing this property and putting our way of life at risk. We need to discourage buyers from this area and tell them the truth that this land belongs to Ngati Haua. This land is your birthright handed down by our Tupuna. We will do what ever it takes to have it returned. Come and join the occupation!" Links: Whangape | More information | Return of the Whenua o tatau Tupuna

Gatwick Protest: No More Immigration Prisons

United Kingdom, 22.04.2007 12:09

Over 100 people held a lively protest in Crawley, West Sussex, on 21 April, 2007, against a new planned detention centre nearby. The protest, called by the No Borders network in the UK, aimed to show opposition to the new purpose-built Immigration Removal Centre (as it's called by the government) which is being built at Gatwick Airport. The new prison for asylum seekers will have a capacity of 420 places for male and female detainees and is another step in the Labour government's efforts to meets its target of 4,000 places in detention centres throughout the country.

The demonstration, which was mainly made of two large groups from Brighton and London, marched through Crawley town centre in the high of Saturday's shopping spree. Many leaflets were given out, informing locals about the reasons for the demonstration, whilst pointing out the fact that a new concentration camp for innocent people is about to be built on their doorsteps. Policing was relatively low but the level of surveillance and 'information gathering' was incredibly high and intimidating.

Police Waste '£100,000s' On Mistaken Camp

Bristol, 22.04.2007 12:08

"Police also confirmed their use of phone tapping to one activist: 'Acording to your phone calls, you only expected 10 people at your meeting, but when we there you had 100.' It seems that the police had confused our camp with that of the coming national Climate Camp, this summer - and wasted 100,000s of pounds in the process. The head of this over-zealous policing operation is probably sweating round about now." Led Astray writes: Although the camp part of the Bath Climate Camp was evicted, demonstrations have still continued... Friday 20th April, at 8 am, a group of 8 activists approached the Land and Marine office, to leaflet and banner drop, as part of the advertised blockade. As expected, we met a huge police presence: at least 42 coppers, more in reserve, 10 police vans. they quickly imposed their conditions, no more than 6 activists ... to demonstrate from 8.45 am until 10.45 am, which later extended to 12.30. They tried to move us also, up 30 meters and round the corner, which we refused. Eventually, after frequently checking the site of yesterday's attempted camp opposite, the majority of the police moved on. However, with the combination of the double walls of metal fences encircling the office block, combined with the siege like atmosphere of rows of Avon & Somerset's finest [and the Met...], the vast majority of workers wouldn't have been able to get their work done anyway, so all but about 3 members of staff had been given the day off. The place was empty. Conclusion - Land & Marine were shut down! ... Saturday 21st April. The Party Against Petrol crowd gathered in Bath Abbey at midday to begin what would have been a colourful and noisy protest against car culture and fossil fuels, intending to occupy Lower Bristol Road and the Esso station forecourt there. Around 25-30 activists turned up, and the police, themselves numbering 30 or more, with mounted police again, imposed conditions on the procession: march round the Abbey for 30 mins, then disperse. Well, we did as were told, marched round the Abbey, drumming and dancing and playing football, returned and dispersed... only to form up again and continue the parade, flowing through the police lines easily.

28 Seconds: The Killing of Fouad Kaady Video Showing Saturday @ The Watershead

Portland, 22.04.2007 11:39

You've heard the lies. Now come and learn the truth.

For 18 months, the police and the corporate media have claimed that the killing of Fouad Kaady was justified. They said he was on drugs. They said they feared for their lives. They said he threatened to kill them. They said officers "never violated policies or procedures."

We beg to differ.

Believe it or not, this story is told in the officers' own words. And you won't even believe what you hear.

Where: The Watershed is located at 5040 SE Milwaukie (On the corner of Milwaukie and Mitchell, just South of Holgate.)

When: Saturday, April 21st, 7pm

Why: Because the truth matters.

Lone Vet Report

Portland, 22.04.2007 11:39

I don't know what I will do from here, it looks like this war will go on for another year, that is the best the dems have come up with so far, very depressing. One more year will cost us maybe a thousand more lives and many thousands of injured soldiers, the Iraqis will take the hardest hit, how many more must die for these criminals is beyond me.

I have been off line for a few weeks but now have high speed and will get back to writing what I see and hear. I will continue to protest but in my own way, joining others when needed but mostly by myself. I truly believe we must take on the dems and push them to stop this pretender who calls himself the Commander in Chief. The dems say they don't have the votes to over-ride a veto so they are trying to compromise in order to get something passed. I understand what they are saying but hate this idea. How do you tell the families of those who will die during this compromise that you did the best you could? All who will die or be torn apart from this point are senseless casualties and their sacrifices are for nothing----wasted.

Happy B-Day Fall Creek

Portland, 22.04.2007 11:39

Quite a few years ago some crazy people got together and decided to try to stop the forces of destruction at a place called Fall Creek.

Many people passed through those woods. Some staying a few days, some staying a few years.

There were tears and laughter, conflict and resolution.

The campaign grew into more than a direct action camp. For some it became a home, a community, an autonomous zone, a free place in the midst of so much restriction.

Surge Protection Brigade Granny Arrested with Bike and “Grandkid”

Portland, 22.04.2007 11:39

On Friday April 20, 2007 bike riders in front of the Army Recruiting office In Portland Oregon traded in bright jackets for signs that read "No Blood for Oil" and "Seriously Pissed Off Grannies" T shirts. The bikers rode west on Broadway and then walked their bikes past the recruiting office to minimize risk to pedestrians. The group of about 40 people, fairly evenly split between seniors and young adults, gathered at 10:30 and by 12:30 two of the protesters had been arrested for blocking the doorways to the recruiting office. Sara Graham, 66, blocked the door with her vintage bike. After about 15 minutes she was joined by Wendy B., a young woman who blocked the second door. For a while it appeared as if the officers would allow the protest without arrests, but after some consultation and gathering of copies of laws they moved in to arrest the protesters.

The recruiting office was undergoing an inspection on Friday, and many of the recruiters from the office and those sent to do the inspection stood in the doorway chatting with the demonstrators. The tone was more civil that the past two protests on March 30 and April 6. Some protesters attributed the respectful atmosphere to the presence of the City Attorney. Officer Schaffer, who in the past has antagonized demonstrators and used physical force to push protesters out of the doorway, was civil. Other officers were friendly, as they have been in the past.

Carta del Preso Político/Letter from Political Prisoner: David Venegas &quot;el Alebrije&quot;

San Diego, 22.04.2007 09:38

Me encuentro preso en el penal de Santa Maria Ixcotel, en mi Ciudad de Oaxaca, entre aquí por una acusación fabricada de posesión de drogas, los policías que me detuvieron me golpearon y... soy acusado, ahora, de otro proceso judicial de sedición, y otros atentados en contra de la sociedad oaxaqueña, como la quema del tribunal del estado el día 25 de noviembre, demás es decirle a este valiente y digno pueblo de Oaxaca que todas estas acusaciones son falsas...en cada rostros antiguo, en cada consigna, en cada pinta que aparece furtivamente por la noche, en cada niño, en cada manta y en cada uno de nosotros que estamos presos, hay los motivos fraternos para seguir luchando, los invito a que no abandonemos esta lucha jamás. --Leer Mas--

I’m a prisoner in the Santa Maria Ixcotel prison in my city, Oaxaca. I was brought here on trumped up charges of narcotics possession. I was beaten by the police who arrested me and ...charged with a new count of sedition and other offenses against the Oaxacan society such as burning down the state Courthouse on November 25. I don’t need to tell the courageous, dignified people of Oaxaca that all these charges are false... In each elderly face, in each chant, in each graffiti that appears in the still of the night, in each child, in each banner, and in each one of us prisoners, our brother and sisterhood motivates us to keep struggling. I urge you never to abandon this struggle. Never. --Read More--

am*dam zuidoost: Manifestatie tegen Armoede, Racisme en Onderdrukking

Netherlands, 21.04.2007 23:40

Een aantaal burgerrechten- en bewonersorganisaties uit Amsterdam Zuidoost roepen voor dinsdag 24 april op tot een 'Mars tegen Onderdrukking'. Het gaat om protest tegen het repressieve en veelal racistisch getintte veiligheidsbeleid van gemeente en politie. De nadruk ligt op het feit dat repressieve middelen zoals ID plicht en preventief fouilleren in de praktijk gebruikt worden in een racistische strijd tegen de armen.

De organisatoren stellen in een interview dat de overheid arme buurten schoonveegd voor de nieuwe middenklasse, en dan met middelen die aan het apartheidsregime doen denken.

De demonstratie begint dinsdag 24 april 2007 om 17.30 op het arenaboulevard, metrostation Bijlmer Arena.

Bon Pastor demolition begins

This Monday April 16th, 2007, the diggers have begun the Bon Pastor's cheap houses demolition; these were popular buildings constructed by the Patronat Municipal de l'Habitatge in 1929 to house immigrants who came to Barcelona from Murcia, Andalucía and Catalunya interiors looking for a job. During the 80s the houses inhabitants have been abandoned and they've had to keep their homes with their own money and efforts. And now once the city has gone round the district, the Patronat remembers its terrains and starts pulling down houses. The Associació de Veïns(Neighbours association) has achieved to persuade the neighbourhood not only that 80 years of history were not worth conserving, but even that there were no need to indemnify anyone affected. The dream of having a house has divided the neighbours and has created a diffuse uneasiness which adds to the mobbing that are suffering the neighbours who resist. SOLIDARITY WITH BON PASTOR NEIGHBOURS' STRUGGLES. [photo]

Coming Together to Honor Local Activists

Santa Cruz, CA, 21.04.2007 06:09

On April 14th, Santa Cruz County activists crowded into the First Congregational Church to honor some of their own local heroes of Latin America Solidarity. The evening was filled with good food, laughter and inspirational words from a variety of community members. The event bridged the divide between young and old and brought together people from north and south Santa Cruz County. Said event organizer Lois Muhley, "The pulling together of the two ends of our county was an especially gratifying part of the whole proceedings. The more we can do this, the better our north south relations will be." It has been recognized, as evident in the formation of the Monterey Bay Latin America Support Network, that numerous groups in the county are involved in similar struggles and that more can be accomplished if everyone works together.

In all, five local heroes were honored by their respective organizations, Bill Burtch from the Santa Cruz Cuba Caravans, Takashi Yogi of the Cuba Study Group, Ramiro Madrona from the Watsonville Brown Berets, Colleen Crosby nominated by Three Americas, Inc, and Oscar Rios nominated by Barrios Unidos. Congressman Sam Farr also spoke and presented the award to the winner of the Three Americas essay contest, the prize being a scholarship to go on this year's Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba.

You Can't Wash Away the Hate

Santa Cruz, CA, 21.04.2007 06:09

Vinny Lombardo writes: "In this photo-essay, I've got alot more questions, than answers. "Jews Are Poison." "Jews Caus Wars." "Jews Spread Porn." These are the messages I've scene angrily scrawled on many benches along Pacific Ave. In my mind, I tried to simply laugh at the idiocy of whoever did this. I mean, this person couldn't even spell the word, 'cause,' so how could I take their 'cause' seriously? But I couldn't shake the feeling that it might be something more. Has there been other such hateful messages tagged around Santa Cruz? What about vandalism at local synagogues? These were the questions swirling through my mind as I raced home to find answers."

josh sonnenfeld comments: "Santa Cruz's 'progressive' image is relatively new (since the University came and changed things), and it has always been spotty. Ever since Spanish colonization, Santa Cruz has been unsafe for people of color and it very much continues to this day, 'progressive' image or not. The local indigenous were enslaved under the Spaniards, the mestizos were lynched under Duncan McPherson's reign at the Santa Cruz Sentinel in the late 1800s, local Chinese were assaulted and had their homes burned down by the local (and statewide) anti-Chinese movement of the early 1900s, mid-century black folks, who had built a community after WWII found themselves frequently harassed, such as the minister who was moving to the East Side from San Francisco who had his home burned down by a group of white vigilante neighbors who didn't want their neighborhood desegregated."

EPMU and Labour collude to sell out Air NZ workers

Aotearoa, 21.04.2007 04:13

Andrew Little and the Enginering, Printing and Manufacturing Union (EPMU) together with the Labour government have colluded to sell out 1675 Air New Zealand workers who faced having their jobs outsourced by the company, which is 80% owned by the government. The EPMU cut a deal with Air NZ that will see many of the workers face cuts in pay and conditions in the year after the company posted a profit of $96 million.

The Workers' Charter reported that the Air NZ CEO, "who wants to trim the pay packets of 1,700 ground staff by $7, 000 each takes home nearly $1 million a year." Meanwhile Air NZ has been attempting to bribe its workers with pay outs of up to $3000 to leave the Service and Food Workers Union (SFWU), which represents 260 of the Air NZ workers, has vowed to fight both the outsourcing and the cuts in pay and conditions. Labour MPs have been haranguing SFWU secretary Jill Ovens to accept the deal the EPMU took and EPMU delegates have been ripping down SFWU posters.

As Don Franks wrote, "What the situation cried out for was a strike in defiance of that rotten anti-worker law. EPMU leaders chose to put obedience to the law above loyalty to their members.

There are eleven different unions involved at Air NZ. A determined strike by all of them, endorsed and supported by the Council of Trade Unions, would have had a fair crack at repelling the airline’s ultimatum. Such a struggle would have probably won wide public support."

Seattle, 21.04.2007 01:38

America in Solidarity , the Tacoma-based grassroots working families' advocacy group, will present a special May Day program intended to honor the sacrifices of workers throughout American history.

The effort to pass an impeachment resolution in this legislative session ended today in Washington. Over 100 people rallied on the Capitol steps before taking seats in the gallery to watch a debate that was scheduled for impeachment and the Iraq war. Curiously, no one defended the President or Vice President. No one stood up to say the allegations were untrue. Yet, impeachment failed because too many believed it wasn't their job to stand up for the Constitution.

Protest over multi million pound redevelopment of Edinburgh

United Kingdom, 20.04.2007 13:39

Demonstrations have taken place throughout the city on redevelopment plans which may mean the demolition of some of Edinburgh's most historic and listed buildings.

Protesters from 'Save Our Old Town' (SOOT) demonstrated on the Royal Mile outside the City Chambers as the Council discussed the £300 million development plans of both the Canongate and Market Street.

With these, and many more 'redevelopment' plans for around the city, Edinburgh is changing quickly, and the Old Town is being destroyed quicker than you can say 'Listed Buildings'.

Empieza el derribo de Bon Pastor

Lunes 16 d'abril de 2007 las escavadoras han empezado a derribar las casas baratas de Bon Pastor; unas edificaciones populares construidas por el "Patronat Municipal de l'Habitatge" el año 1929 para los immigrantes que llegaron en busca de trabajo a Barcelona desde Murcia, Andalucia o desde el interior de Catalunya. Durante 80 años los habitantes de las casas han estado abandonados y han tenido que mantener sus casas con su esfuerzo i dinero. Ahora que la ciudad a llegado a rodear el barrio, el "Patronat" se acuerda de sus terrenos i empieza a derribar casas. La Asociación de Vecinos ha logrado convencer al vecindario no solo que 80 años de historia no hacia falta conservar ni respetar, sinó que para tirar las casas tampoco hacia falta indemnizar a nadie. El sueño de un piso de propiedad ha deividido el vecindario i ha generado un malestar difundido que se añade al mobbing que estan viviendo los vecinos i vecinas que resisten.

Request for letters of police perceptions for Mayor's office

Portland, 20.04.2007 09:11

Hi All,

Next week I have a meeting with the Mayor's office as an average citizen discussing some of my experiences with the Portland Police. This stems from an officer detaining me and using the threat of arrest for a law that did not exist.

Anyhow, as part of my meeting I would like to leave the Mayor's office with a stack of printed out letters from other citizens that have had experiences where they felt that the PPB over stepped their legal bounds.

Mountain Cops' Embarrassing Secret: Sandy’s “Bonanza Bunkhouse”

Portland, 20.04.2007 09:11

Let me tell you a story I've just heard recently about how the "wild, wild, west" brand of justice that law enforcement employ here on the mountain played out at Sandy's infamous "Bonanza Bunkhouse."

Like I imagine many were, I was understandably concerned and upset after reading of the six lawsuits filed against members of the Sandy police force and Clackamas County Sheriff's department. Even the staunchest conservative or law-and-order type should question why - especially after 20 years without - the city and county now face six legal actions alleging corruption, police brutality and other serious violations of constitutional rights.

Urgent: Oregon HB 3099 Statewide Mandatory Water Fluoridation Bill Moving Closer to Law

Portland, 20.04.2007 09:11

Tomorrow, Friday, April 20th, 2007, the Oregon House of Representatives Health Care Committee is having a work session on House Bill 3099 (HB3099) which would institute mandatory water fluoridation statewide in Oregon for all communities of 10,000 or more residents. It is very important that Oregon citizens educate themselves on this issue as this would result in us paying for hazardous and toxic waste materials to be added to our drinking water. Call and e-mail your representatives today (contact info on my web site!)

The Washington Legislature Fails to Pass an Impeachment Resolution

Portland, 20.04.2007 09:10

The effort to pass an impeachment resolution in this legislative session ended today in Washington. Over 100 people rallied on the Capitol steps before taking seats in the gallery to watch a debate that was scheduled for impeachment and the Iraq war. Curiously, no one defended the President or Vice President. No one stood up to say the allegations were untrue. Yet, impeachment failed because too many believed it wasn't their job to stand up for the Constitution.

The Senate Joint Memorial 8016, which petitioned Congress to begin impeachment investigations of the President Bush and Vice President Cheney, began its journey on February 14th. Freshman Senator Eric Oemig led the effort, along with eight co-sponsors: Senators Fairley, Fraser, Kauffman, Kline, Kohl-Welles, Prentice, Regala, and Spanel.

Clowns Recruiting at UCSD Art Show!

San Diego, 20.04.2007 08:08

On April 6th, 2007, the Boredom Patrol of the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army set up a recruiting booth at UCSD's Open Studios gallery show. They recruited new clowns, uncovered the racism at UCSD and prettied up the gallery.

From the recruiting brochure:
We, the Boredom Patrol of the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (CIRCA) are here at UCSD to recruit for our army. We see that there is already so much recruiting on campus: army, navy, police forces, sheriffs and our competition, the Border Patrol! Also, we see that UCSD is truly a school run by clowns, because they don't mean what they say or say what they mean, they're always creating contradictions.

Take, for example this little comparison between the UCSD Principles of Community and The Koala, a newspaper on campus funded by the school through Associated Students...--Read More--
