Indypendent Reader Issue 3

Baltimore, 27.04.2007 03:08

This issue is about education. Education has always been so important that no society permits it to go unregulated. In Baltimore, a large group of high school students, in what has been called the “Algebra Project” has challenged the control of the Board of Education through strikes, rallies, and a citizen ’s arrest of the state superintendent. Most recently Project participants have organized a shadow Board of Education. At stake are millions of dollars in school funding. We tell the story in three more.

McCain Presidential Campaign Appears Over

New Hampshire, 26.04.2007 23:11

On Wednesday, April 25th, John McCain's presidential campaign was launched with more of a whimper than a bang in Prescott Park in Portsmouth. Even with free hot dogs and bus-loads of McCain loyalists imported for the event from other states, the crowd maxed-out around 250.

Patrick Henry High Promotes Discrimination

San Diego, 26.04.2007 19:40

Last week, in a hopeful attempt to introduce tolerance to Patrick Henry High School, I produced over 30 posters that promoted tolerance and equality for gays and lesbians. I went from class to class, asking teachers if they would be willing to put a poster in their room windows. All but three teachers accepted my request. Most teachers gave me praise for having the courage and concern to act upon the hidden issue of discrimination against homosexuality that plagues our schools. I was disheartened yesterday, to find that all of my posters were torn down by school security at the request of Patrick Henry vice-principal, Laurie Guido.

There is a critical need for the awareness of homosexual discrimination in youth. In America, approximately 7.2 million people under age 20 are lesbian or gay. 45% of gay males and 20% of lesbians encounter physical or verbal assault in high school. As a result, many teens commit suicide. In 1995, gay and lesbian teenagers accounted for 30% of all suicides among youths.

The Massachusetts Department of Education announced in 1994 that, “The average high school student in the U.S. hears anti-gay slurs 25 times per day.” If the situation is not managed, homophobic teenagers will grow to be hateful, intolerant, and uncaring adults. The hate of narrow-minded students and the desolate condition of gay and lesbian students does not end at graduation. People are affected by their high school experiences for the rest of their lives.

Senate Bill 672 Limits Trapping Cruelty

Portland, 26.04.2007 10:39

Oregon Senate Bill 672 will require traps to be checked every 24 hours. This will significantly reduce the suffering of trapped animals. It's a step in the right direction.

The use of leg- and body-hold traps remains in wide use in Oregon, with well over 20,000 animals trapped each year. Under current ODFW regulations, animals can, and do, remain in a trap for from 48 hours to 30 days. SB 672, which is in the Oregon Senate Environmental and Natural Resource Committee, would reduce the time allowed between checking traps to 24 hours. The reason for a 24 hour check time is because these types of traps are so inherently cruel that every measure should be taken to reduce the time any animal spends in one. Furthermore, studies have shown over and over again that for every targeted animal caught, two or three non-targeted animals are trapped, and if they are released within 24 hours, they may escape death or maiming.

First Casualty: Sea Lion Down

Portland, 26.04.2007 10:39

Last night, I heard the plaintive barking of a far-off sea lion, somewhere down by the river. Usually, I love that sound. It reminds me that there are still wild beings left in the world, despite the best efforts of the worst of humans. And it connects me to the seasons. I know when I hear the sea lions, that the salmon are surging in the river, and the eagles and the osprey are gliding in the skies. Usually, when I hear the sea lions, the skies are full of geese and swans, either coming or going at the beginning or the ending of the warmer seasons.

Usually, when I hear the sea lions, I know that everything is as it should be in the world.

AUDIO FILES: How Bush Drowned New Orleans and the Theft of 2008

Portland, 26.04.2007 10:39

Greg Palast, investigative reporter visited Portland Wednesday evening, April 24, 2007, promoting the addition of two chapters to his most recent book, "Armed Madhouse." The event was co sponsored by KBOO Radio, and was a benefit for the Portland Alliance Newspaper.

Palast was in town last year on his Armed Madhouse Tour, and this visit presented some of the same information. Though he did review much of the earlier material, the additional two chapters added much that was new, especially his investigation of the Federal Debacle in New Orleans leading up to and after Hurricane Katrina.

The event was extremely well attended, filling up the majority of the seats at the First Unitarian Church, probably about 300-350 people.

Don't vote! It only encourages them

United Kingdom, 26.04.2007 07:10

You are expected to turn out to vote on May 3rd. By this seemingly straightforward act you will tacitly endorse a sham democracy and are unlikely to change anything really important. Voting alone does not a democracy make. It crucially depends on which particular issues you are allowed to vote for, or not.

Why is our democracy a sham? Democracy is supposed to be 'rule by the People' but there are huge areas in the UK system of government where the People have absolutely no say at all, such as foreign policy and defence. They also cannot influence by voting the decisions of global organisations which may have a profound effect on the lives of UK citizens, such as the G8 and the WTO. Much the same applies to multi-national corporations and quangos operating within the UK.

So what are you allowed to vote for? A strictly limited set of policies contained in a party manifesto, mere promises which may or may not be honoured during the next term of office before you are permitted to vote again. Those who abstain from voting may not be able to bring about a proper democracy in the immediate future but at least they will have the satisfaction of knowing they are not helping to perpetuate a downright lie.

David Rovics Radical Concert: Ashland, Oregon

Rogue Valley, 26.04.2007 03:53


Bellview Grange Sunday April 20, 2007

IndyMedia Week (April 15-21, 2007) had two concerts, the George Mann kickoff event on Sunday and the David Rovics-Patrick Dodd event Friday Night Here is David Rovics on Friday night, taken with a hand held video camera without an external mic..

So much fun to sit on a couch up front and just kick back and listen to the wonderful performance of David Rovics and Patrick Dodd. I only held up my video camera for 15 minutes of raw footage thinking it too dark for video and that my camera's built-in microphone was not capable of getting good sound (for the techies, i needed an external mic). But then I listened to it and decided it was much better than imagined and so here is a streaming vid from the friday nite concert

Lest we forget Afghanistan, the Solomon Islands and Timor Leste

Aotearoa, 26.04.2007 03:53

Anti-war protests took place in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this morning during the ANZAC Day dawn services. "ANZAC Day has ceased to be a day where we commit to 'never again', and has instead become nothing less than a celebration of the New Zealand military and the glorification of war. Lest we forget that the New Zealand military is currently engaged in combat in Afghanistan, the Solomon Islands and Timor Leste. Lest we forget that the New Zealand military is currently deployed in 18 different missions around the world," wrote Peace Action Wellington.

In Auckland a silent but visible vigil marked ANZAC day in Auckland with protesters highlighting the ongoing involvement of New Zealand troops in unjust wars around the world. Protesters held a six meter long banner saying “Honor the dead; no more wars.”

Two people were arrested after protesters held banners and burnt New Zealand flags in Wellington. Around 15 people held big banners and used loud horns. The activists will appear in court at 1pm this afternoon.

In Christchurch a banner was held saying "in remembrance of women and children raped and killed in wars" by the group 'Women in Black'.

A Portrait: 420 at UC Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.04.2007 03:51

Every year on April 20, folks gather around North America to celebrate and smoke. UC Santa Cruz has historically had one of the largest gatherings around, a self-fulfilling prophesy of sorts, spurred on by UCSC's unique cultural history and the occassional spotlights from outside (like Rolling Stone Magazine a few years ago). Its a big community event - a place where thousands of people can bring a bunch of friends, musical instruments, frisbees, you name it, and just have fun. This year, cops and administrators attempted to intimidate students, but the party went on.

April 20, 2007 Decision in RNC Putative Class Action Re: Privilege Assertions

NYC, 26.04.2007 03:50

From the Memorandum and Order: "This case is one of many cases arising from the arrests of approximately 1,800 people during the Republican National Convention (the “RNC”) in New York City in the summer of 2004. Throughout the litigation, the City of New York and the individual defendants (collectively, the “City”) have withheld or redacted a number of documents requested by the plaintiffs on the basis of various privileges. On March 14, 2007, I granted in part and denied in part the plaintiffs’ motion to compel production of documents that the City claimed were subject to the self-critical analysis privilege, the attorney-client privilege, and the deliberative process privilege. MacNamara v. City of New York, No. 04 Civ. 9216, 2007 WL 755401 (S.D.N.Y. March 14, 2007). The plaintiffs now seek an order compelling the City to produce in unredacted form additional documents that the City has withheld on the basis of the deliberative process privilege and the law enforcement privilege. In addition, the plaintiffs seek an order reopening depositions at which the City instructed witnesses not to answer questions regarding the presence of undercover or plainclothes officers at demonstrations. For the reasons set forth below, the plaintiffs’ motion is granted in part and denied in part."
