San Diego, 01.05.2007 07:38

April 30, 2007 - Barucha Calamity Peller writes: At approximately 5pm today in Oaxaca City, Radio Universidad was re- occupied by APPO sympathizers and students from different departments of the Benito Juarez Autonomous University who are sympathetic to the APPO. With protests songs and political information, the transmissions were initiated to spread information about the different mobilizations planned for the first days of May. Tomorrow, a national labor holiday, teachers from section 22 union, together with other social organizations will march to the Zocalo of the Capital City to protest the continuing governance of Ulises Ruiz, ousted by popular demand since June of last year.

Two UCSD TAs Fired for Political Reasons

San Diego, 01.05.2007 07:38

Thurgood Marshall College at UCSD has historically been a site of critical pedagogy that challenged the status quo and advocated racial equity and social justice on campus and within the San Diego community. In recent years, the college has taken significant steps away from honoring those commitments, which is particularly evident in the management of its undergraduate core sequence, the Dimensions of Culture program... In response, the Lumumba-Zapata Coalition, named in honor of the student, faculty and community movement that was fundamental to the founding of [Third] (now Thurgood Marshall) College in the 1960s, and which included such notable scholars as Angela Davis, Herbert Marcuse and Carlos Blanco, is currently campaigning to make significant changes to how the core sequence operates and what is taught in the curriculum.

This week two UCSD teaching assistants were dismissed from their positions for political reasons in a blatent abuse of administrative power and a violation of free speech.

“Not on our watch, not on our time!” The people of Massachusetts take action for a promise the world failed to keep: “Genocide: never again”

Boston, 01.05.2007 03:09

If you take a Philosophy class, one of the first lessons you are taught is that History repeats itself over and over again, simply because of our incapacity as people to learn from past mistakes. For the past 60 years, we have witnessed over 10 genocides - in Nazi Germany, Cambodia, but also Afghanistan, Tibet, Iraq and most recently, Bosnia and Rwanda. Although the world keeps being outraged and promises to never let it happen again, it quickly looses interest in it and watches more or less passively as new ones unfold.

Don't Vote! It only encourages them

United Kingdom, 01.05.2007 01:40

So it's that time of the year again: the election circus has come to town and you are expected to turn out to vote on May 3rd. By this seemingly straightforward act, however, you will tacitly endorse a sham democracy and are unlikely to change anything really important. Democracy is supposed to be "rule by the People", but there are huge areas in the UK system of government, such as foreign policy and defence, where the People have absolutely no say. Even health and education, which are typically hot topics in election times, are being sold off, always at the expense of the poor.

Further, Brummagem Star, a newly launched grassroots newsletter, has exposeed that BNP candidates in Birmingham have been using bogus nominees to make up the ten required to be able to stand for a ward. Back in 2004, when 6 Labour councillors were found guilty of rigging the electoral system, a High Court judge said Birmingham's electoral fraud would "disgrace a Banana Republic". Those who abstain from voting are often labelled as apathetic and may not bring about a proper democracy in the immediate future, but at least they will have the satisfaction of knowing they are not helping perpetuate a downright lie. On the other hand, there have been many successful examples in recent years of communities self-organising through solidarity and mutual aid. Direct democracy does not need the interference of parasitic intermediaries who only show up during election campaigns or for a 'photo opportunity'.

Euromayday 2007

United Kingdom, 30.04.2007 18:10

Like in previous years, precari@s in Europe and beyond have chosen the first of May to take the streets. On Mayday, casual and flexible workers, immigrants, unemployed, temp-workers, part-timers, are stepping out of invisibility: L@s precari@s se rebelan! (The precarious are rebelling). They are demanding new social rights, or, as in the South of Spain, "the right to have rights" in the first place. In some cities, the precari@s march with the trade unions. In others, they set up their own Maydays. Who are "the precarious?" Here is a description from Barcelona EuroMayday Manifesto 2004:

"We are the precarious, the flexible, the temporary, the mobile. We’re the people that live on a tightrope, in a precarious balance, we’re the restructured and outsourced, those who lack a stable job, and those who are overexploited; those who pay a mortgage or a rent that strangles us. We’re forced to buy and sell our ability to love and care. We’re just like you: contortionists of flexibility."

GONZALES EMBARRASSED AT HARVARD REUNION

Boston, 30.04.2007 16:09

Cambridge, Mass. – Alberto Gonzales was confronted by student protesters and forced to leave through a back door on Saturday during a visit to Harvard Law School for his 25th reunion. After two weeks clinging to save his job and defending allegations that he fired eight U.S. Attorneys for political reasons, what might have been a relaxed day of reminiscing with old classmates became instead yet another reminder that both his job and his reputation are in serious jeopardy.

May 1st swings around again with a diverse bunch of activities to check out; from Maypole picnic parties, to migrant rights benefits, to shirking the 9-5 by dancin' in the streets!.

Mayday is also known as International Workers' Day, which will see this years annual workers march leaving Clerkenwell Green at 1pm to Trafalgar Square, along with the more radical Autonomous Workers Bloc.

For London Indymedia, it is a Birthday, 8 years of reporting, growing and evolving. London Indymedia is a successful alternative to the corporate mainstream 'press' due to volunteers who post, maintain, code, write, support, promote, video, photograph -If the Indymedia project is to survive another 8 years, we need to continue share and disseminate the message that another media - our media - is possible.

Protest Against Fox and Police Brutality

San Diego, 30.04.2007 13:38

On Wednesday, about 100 demonstrators rallied outside the Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego to protest a "democracy and peace" award presented to former president of Mexico Vicente Fox. The protesters marched and cycled from the Benito Juarez statue in Pantoja Park to the rally, struggling to use their sidewalks and streets against an oppressive and excessive sdpd presence.

Inside the opulent hotel, UCSD's corporate-dominated Institute of the Americas cited Fox for "strengthening the democratic institutions" of Mexico, but pretended not to notice the blood dripping from their guest's hands owing to the massacres in Atenco and Oaxaca, the stolen election of Calderón and other crimes (1, 2, 3). The Institute also failed to mention its own role, through involvement with Plan Puebla-Panama and other piracy programs of corporations, in the displacement of indigenous people from their traditional lands and the impoverishment of millions of Mexicans.

Outside, speakers at the open-mic rally recounted Fox's crimes and drew the parallel between the brutality of his regime and u.s. police brutality along the border, in Vista and in San Diego. A young child in a stroller was observed to chant, for the first time, "Oaxaca Vive!" Corporate media were out in force in search of sound bites and "controversy." Damn them.

CJ Ball, sdpd's designated captain in charge of suppressing political dissent, once again presided over the repressive efforts.

Angel Lita: Nos congregamos en frente del US Grant Hotel en San Diego Ca, con la intención de mostrar nuestro repudio a este infame acto de Premiación a Vicente Fox. Galardón denominado "Presidente de la Democracia y de la Paz". Nos congregamos para hacer patente nuestro rechazo a semejante mentira, y que solo para el Instituto de las Americas; puede ser una verdad. Porque, en que cabeza inteligente o por lo menos con un mínimo grado de honestidad, pueda siquiera imaginar que Vicente Fox es digno de recibir un premio de tal magnitud. Premio al Presidente de la Democracia y de la Paz? A que Democracia y qué Paz se refieren, a los muertos hasta ahora enterrados en la mina de Pasta de Conchos en Cohauila, y cuyos huerfanos y viudas, o madres o familiares siguen esperando todavia la justicia que con tanta behemencia Fox les prometio, y lo unico que hizo fue que con mentiras y abusando del poder que representaba hizo todo para ocultar y proteger a los verdaderos culpables; los señores del poder y del dinero. Cual democracia!? ...--Leer Mas--

Santa Cruz, CA, 30.04.2007 08:09

Van Jones spoke at UCSC on April 25, on "Growing Greener, Growing Together: Sustainability, Social Justice and the Future of the Progressive Movement." Van Jones is the Executive Director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, a national organization in Oakland, CA, that has focused on positive alternatives to incarceration and violence in urban America. Jones argues that the coming battle to save the planet could actually result in a sort of eco-apartheid unless we are able to make sure that low-income areas and communities of color are early participants in the creation of new "green-collar" jobs and industries.
