Doors open 7.30pm, film starts at 8pm. £3/4 though nobody turned away for lack of funds. To mark International Workers' Day (1st May), the Bristol Local of the Solidarity Federation – International Workers' Association will be introducing this classic modern US feature film depicting a labour dispute in the small mining community of Matewan, West Virginia, in 1920. The significance of this film for International Workers' Day and for present day labour struggles lies in the solidarity built between the native and the migrant mineworkers in order to confront the real enemy; the boss. "[Matewan's director John] Sayles is a perfectionist with a great ear and eye for historical detail, and Matewan is as rich in it as a film can be." James Kendrick (Q Network Film Desk) Full article.

Monday night at the Brecht Forum, panelists Max Blumenthal (The Nation), Solana Larsen (opendemocracy.net) and Omar Enriquez (Immigration Campaign, SEIU) discussed the financial and ideological connections between the different factions of anti-immigration groups across the nation, why immigration is a racial issue, and why the public needs to be educated about the origins of popular figures.



Local Elections Round Up

United Kingdom, 03.05.2007 12:39

Labour takes climate change seriously by campaigning in an SUV in the Berridge Ward.

'A small tale that sheds some light on the ways of politicians....when the campaigners were challenged on their ostentatious fuel-guzzling monster, they at first tried to laugh it off, then claimed "er, it's LPG!"; this was clearly untrue, it was diesel, and when asked to demonstrate this (EG. by showing us the fuel nozzle, they refused, made their excuses and left. This from the same party that claims to be taking climate change seriously in Nottingham!'

Anti-Fascist activists hit Hucknall with leaflets to stop the BNP gaining a foothalt.

'The BNP have published their list of candidates for the Council Elections on 3 May. Including Parish councillors they are fielding a record 827 candidates across the country. The good news is that Nottingham city remains an area where there are no candidates standing. The closest places to Nottingham they are standing are Hucknall, Brinsley, Eastwood, Heanor and Ilkeston. The biggest dangers at the moment are Hucknall where last year the BNP pulled about 25% of the vote, and Heanor, where they lost by only 16 votes last time.'

Local activists call to 'Vote for Nobody'

'It's not just about making a mockery of the farce that is "representative" democracy. It's also about producing more spoiled ballot papers with "Nobody" scrawled across them than the official winning candidate, thus undermining their "legitimacy" (as if they ever had any) to push the same old business-friendly, community-trashing policies that they always do, regardless of who gets in.'

Bobby Kennedy joins Klamath Tribes, fishermen and Riverkeeper in PacifiCorp toxin suit

Portland, 03.05.2007 08:38

A group of Klamath River tribal leaders, commercial fishermen and recreational business owners filed suit today against PacifiCorp, contending that two of its dams in Northern California are the cause of massive blooms of toxic algae that are decimating the salmon fishery and causing an extreme potential health hazard to humans. The news comes just days before demonstrations by Native people, fishermen and others in Portland and Omaha.

"These dams are having a devastating impact on the economies and cultures of Native Americans and others who depend on the Klamath River," said Robert F. Kennedy Jr., co-counsel in the case. | read more >>

Fish Kill Memorial Rally Portland

10am Holladay Park, NE 13th and Multnomah. Over 100 Tribal members and Klamath River residents are traveling to Portland where they will gather with Pacific Power ratepayers at the PacifiCorp building in Portland to hold a memorial service for the Klamath River fish kills.

This event is being held in solidarity with Tribal members who are traveling to Omaha, Nebraska for the shareholders meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, Pacific Power's parent company, to hold a healing ceremony. Not everyone could make it to Omaha, so we are showing support for our friends and family by going straight to PacifiCorp's headquarters and demanding that they take responsibility for the disaster they've created on the river. | read more >>



The Long and Winding Road

Portland, 03.05.2007 08:38

I'm in a hurry right now, getting ready for work, so all I have time to share is this one moment that I found so intriguing. It happened after the march was over, when some friends and I (all videographers, cameras in hand) were heading home.

We were walking down to meet up with friends and then go home, when we noticed a pod of Portland's yellow-jacketed finest, riding slowly down the street. They seemed to be following someone, sneak-sneak-sneaking along. What could they be doing? Then, up ahead of us, we noticed a small group of 5 or 6 people, also leaving the march. They felt the eyes on their backs, and noted the sneak-sneak-sneaky pod of 7 police officers. So they stopped, just to see if they really were being followed. Sure enough, the cops stopped too. They began walking, the cops followed. They stopped, the cops stopped. Now, why would such a large pod of police officers be following such a small group of people? Clearly marked with cross patches and arm bands, they were obviously medics. | read more >>

BioJustice 2007 Responds to Biotechnology Industry

Boston, 02.05.2007 22:09

Organizers of BioJustice criticize the biotechnology industry's activities in agriculture, medicine, and bioweaponry, and say that better alternatives are available.



May Day Immigration Rally Medford, Oregon

Rogue Valley, 02.05.2007 19:12

What a great day today in Medford at the Immigrant Support Rally! They did a fantastic job. Everyone rallied at Alba Park with music playing loudly. All ages were there. It was neat having the wee ones and the feisty teenagers. I can’t remember the name of the Native drum group, but they played several songs and played us off on to our march. Gerry Cavanaugh gave a rousing speech, as well as a Native American man, and two children spoke about how our terrible immigration policies hurt families and about the deaths in the deserts.

I was sad and angered to hear that last year “officials” swept the crowd and deportations occurred. Grrrr. That was the apparent reason for a lower turnout this year. I s’pose if the administration can keep everyone afraid of their neighbors less attention goes toward the occupation of Iraq.

Whose Streets? -- Recommendations to the Portland Police Bureau for Responding to First Amendment Assemblies

Portland, 02.05.2007 18:38

The Northwest Constitutional Rights Center and the Portland Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild work together to safeguard the rights of political activists in Portland. At every major demonstration in downtown Portland, legal observers from the National Lawyers Guild take to the streets to walk alongside protestors, documenting incidents of police misconduct. In addition, National Lawyers Guild legal workers and attorneys volunteer their time to defend the rights of individuals arrested at protests. The Northwest Constitutional Rights Center investigates protestors' complaints of police misconduct.

In the sections that follow, this report provides a chronology of Portland Police Bureau tactics during protests in Portland over the past decade. The report also analyzes the Portland Police Bureau crowd control and use of force policies as they relate to these tactics. Finally, the report concludes with a series of specific recommendations for changes in Portland Police Bureau policy.

AUDIO FILE: Whose Streets?

Today, May 1, 2007, the Northwest Constitutional Rights Center and the Portland Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild released the report, "Whose Streets? Recommendations to Improve the Portland Police Bureau's Response to First Amendment Assemblies."

The report was released at a Press Conference, moderated by Alejandro Queral, Director of the Northwest Constitutional Rights Center. Alejandro spoke briefly about why these recommendations are necessary. "The report presents recommendations on what the Police Department needs to do to improve it's crowd control tactics. Over the years we have seen time and again the Portland Police Bureau using excessive force against protesters, ranging from just a show of force all the ay to using impact munitions, such as bean bags and rubber bullets. There have been a number of incidents over the years involving pepper spray...we have also seen the use of mounted patrol as crowd control tactics which have resulted in injuries, panic by the crowd and adverse reactions by the crowd."

Immigrants March to Stop the Raids, Full Legalization Now

Boston, 02.05.2007 16:09

Boston, Mass--It was 4:30 a.m. when they came banging on her door, waking her and everyone else in the house. She went to see what was going on. “Get down!” called out one of her housemates in a loud whisper, “La migra! Get on the floor!” She could barely see the men face down on the carpet but saw the shadows on the window and a bright flashlight that began scanning inside her living room. She ran back to her 4-year-old and locked herself up in the bedroom. She grabbed her child who immediately started whimpering sensing his mother’s panic. “Don’t cry, don’t make a sound. There are policemen outside who want to take us, take me away. We can’t let them hear us. Don’t say a word.” The child understood. Immigration officers had been raiding homes for days in his neighborhood, going after someone with an expired visa and arresting everyone within it without proper documentation. Mothers talked about it in corner stores, in laundry mats, at the playground.



Mayday plus one - save Children's Magical Garden

NYC, 02.05.2007 16:08

Gerson wants to see if the community wants to save the Children's Magical Garden, the only garden I know of that's dedicated just for children in the city, and one of the very very few in the Lower East Side below Houston Street. He wants to know if he should ask Serge Hoyda, the developer who owns 1/3 of the garden, to keep the existing garden as is by donation or exchange for the land, making all the children very happy! Or if we'd be just as happy to have the garden bulldozed by Serge, and replaced with an apartment building with over 70% luxury units.

Pedestrian Killed in Crosswalk

Portland, 02.05.2007 07:39

Tonight [ Saturday night ] at about 9:20 pm, a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk was struck by a hit and run driver. The location was SE 28th Place and SE Powell. acrosswalk servicing Cleveland High School. According to police scanner the car was a dark sedan with left front damage. | read more >>

UPDATE: It was Saturday night not Friday. I posted it just minutes after it happened and having stood next to the victim's shoe where it landed 25 yards from his body. No excuses, I was a bit shaken by this happening just outside where I live. I have nearly been run over in this location myself. | read more >>

shit, THAT crossing: I use that crosswalk from time to time, as I live South of Powell, but have need to go North of it regularly. Powell is a major barrier in the City, comparable to I-84 or the River. The car traffic is nearly freeway speed, and the anxiety of the drivers is tangible, expressing itself as rage, disconnection, rushing, and more. Getting across without using a crossing is madness in many places, but the majority of the designated crossings are sketchy as hell. | read more >>

The Oregon Extra, a special Peace Edition, was inserted into over a thousand copies of The Oregonian today. The single page insert was created and distributed by the Surge Protection Brigade (aka the Seriously Pissed Off Grannies) as a May Day protest. The Extra spotlights subjects that mainstream media will not cover, such as the dangers and casualties of depleted uranium, the truth behind the lies told by military recruiters and how big media's failure to act as a watchdog has failed the American people.

Die AktivistInnen der Gruppe "Geld oder Leben" warben für eine Bewegung für eine radikale Demokratie, da der Bundestag und damit der Parlamentarismus gescheitert sei, was sich besonders in der von den parteien gepredigten Alternativlosigkeit zum Kapitalismus zeige. Nach der Räumung des Bundestages kam es zu lautem Jubel durch die Bundestagstouristen für die AktivistInnen. Ein Interview mit einer Aktivistin.
