Indonesian Military officer starts course in NZ - human rights activists protest

Aotearoa, 13.05.2007 10:09

Today (Monday 14th of May) an Indonesian Military officer will start a 7 month course at the NZ Defence Forces (NZDF) Command and Staff training college at Trentham Army Camp. This is despite the fact that the Indonesian Military (TNI) is still committing massive human rights abuses in West Papua and no military personnel have been held legally accountable for their mass murdering of civilians in East Timor (1975-1999) and Aceh (1976-2005). The military still gets paid huge bribes to offer "security" for big business and also represses workers' unions and left groups within Indonesia. The NZ government shamefully kept up joint training exercises, in areas such as counter-insurgency and ground bombing skills with the Indonesian Military, during the occupation of Timor that killed nearly a third of East Timor’s population. Military ties were cut when Indonesia’s occupation became too politically embarrassing in 1999.

On May 11th the Indonesia Human Rights Committee held a small demo outside the NZDF HQ in Grey Lynn, Auckland to call for all NZ military ties with Indonesia to be cut. According to the Auckland Police this demo of 8 people plus a baby required the presence of two police cars and a police photographer. Triangle TV and an AUT student journalist covered the demo.

Peace Action Wellington have also called for NZ-Indonesia Military ties to be cut. Spokesperson Valerie Morse said: “Helen Clark and Phil Goff are operating in a totally underhanded manner. Last year, they gave public assurances that New Zealand was not considering changing its military relationship with Indonesia, which has been suspended since 1999. It seems that was all a lie, a ruse, to hide a growing relationship with the murderous armed forces of Indonesia, the notorious TNI"

Keep out a watch for more actions happening over the next 7 months. Get in contact for more info (see links below for IHRC and PAW)

Working The Soil: A Look at DC's Community Gardens

DC, 12.05.2007 22:10

Two years ago, my morning get-out-of-bed routine looked like this: A one-man jackhammer would cut through the earth and my sleep. In a drowsy haze, I’d lift the pillow from my head to stare outside my window. For an instant, I’d forget that my ears as well as the neighborhood were under construction. Every morning, it was the city telling me, “hello” to Tivoli Condominium Town Homes and “goodbye” to the community garden that took up most of that block until the fall of 2002.

Dr. Gilbert Burnham on the 654,965 Death Toll in Iraq

Baltimore, 12.05.2007 17:08

One of the true horrors of the Iraqi War is the death toll of the civilian population caught up in that conflict. In Oct., 2006, “The Lancet,” a prestigious British Medical Journal, published a study entitled: “The Human Cost of the War in Iraq.” One of its co-authors was Dr. Gilbert Burnham of the Johns Hopkins U. Its stunning conclusion: 659,965 Iraqis have died in the war as of July, 2006! On May 8, 2007, Dr. Burnham discussed that report.

San Diego, 12.05.2007 13:09

May 1st is International Workers Day, which originated in 1889 to commemorate the Haymarket Martyrs, who were executed on bogus charges because of their effective advocacy of the eight hour work day and anarchist philosophy. On May 1st, thousands of San Diegans marched and rallied in support of (Im)Migrants.

Millions of workers marched worldwide, including Oaxaca, Zurich, Tehran and Istanbul. In Los Angeles, police rioted, attacking a peaceful crowd of families with children using tear gas, batons and rubber bullets

'Iraq War On Trial' : Fairford 5 Retrials Begin

Bristol, 12.05.2007 12:08

Retrial Dates : 14th May, 30th May & 2nd July 2007 Five peace activists who took part in disarmament actions at RAF Fairford in the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq will be retried this summer following hung juries in their original trials ... All trials will take place from 10am at Bristol Crown Court, The Law Courts, Small Street, BS1 1DA. Please be there to support them if you can. Full Article Tony writes: Remember the massive demonstration on 15th February 2003, against the Iraq invasion? Seemed like the whole country was there and the streets of London were full to bursting with our great society in all its diversity, all railing against Tony Blair’s push for an invasion of Iraq ... Our “Shock and Awe” campaign was a disgusting massacre of sanction weakened poor people by super-powers US-UK. For three weeks our B52 bombers dropped wave after wave of bombs on Baghdad. Bombs dropped from a height of 30,000 feet on defenceless victims – how very brave!! ... But those who marched in London saw through Blair’s lies, and five people physically tried to prevent this slaughter from happening. They were arrested at Fairford trying to delay the B52 bombers in the commission of war crimes, days before the invasion of Iraq. Full Article1st RETRIAL, 14th May : Andrew Wood writes: Philip Pritchard and Toby Olditch, two Oxford peace activists known at the 'B52 Two', will be retried on the morning of Monday 14 May 2007, not before 10 am, at Bristol Crown Court. They are accused of conspiring to cause criminal damage at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire on 18 March 2003 when they tried to safely disable B52 bombers to prevent them from bombing Iraq. The two men say they acted to prevent damage to life and property in Iraq, and war crimes by the aggressors ... Philip Pritchard, one of the accused said: “It is devastating that our Government took the road to war in Iraq; we took responsible and peaceful action to stop the B52 bombers. The civilian carnage of the bombing, including the consequences of using cluster bombs and depleted uranium weapons constitutes a war crime.” Full Article. 2nd & 3rd RETRIALS : Josh Richards is to be retried from 30 May, and Margaret Jones and Paul Milling - who non-violently disabled 3 tankers used for refuelling - from 2 July.| Previous Trials: (1) | (2) | (3) | Retrial Articles: War crimes in Iraq highlighted at retrial of peace activists... | Fairford 5 Re-Trials : 14th May, 30th May & 2nd June | Iraq Anti-war Heroes, Fairford Re-trials, Bristol Crown Court, 2007 | Lancet Report: Original Lancet PDF Document | Guardian Article, 28th March 2007 | Nickleberry Blog, 9th May 2007 |Contribute An Article | How To Contribute Articles - A Brief Guide | Add To The Calendar attachments/may2007/iraq_skull_stats_300.gif

The Circus of (Im)migration is Coming!!!

About the No Border Camp (from the no border camp zine (pdf) | español): As long as the US/Mexico border has existed, people have been struggling against it. It is a highly militarized, violent boundary marking an internal space of strict migration controls while allowing for unrestricted movement of capital and wealth. This border exists in a global context of apartheid borders, restriction of movement, and the division of indigenous peoples. For years around the world people have been tearing down fences, freeing detainees and fighting for the rights of migrant people. A global movement is rising. One of the many tactics in this movement is the no border camp – a space for direct action and community.

About the No Border Camp (from deletetheborder): The camp is intended to be a spectacular intervention in a discourse that at times ignores, and at other times justifies, the systematic violence, indignity and exploitation experienced by migrants in this country. The mobilization will bring many of us together in one place to share and learn. It is of equal importance to us that this not be just one isolated event that lasts a few days in one specific location. We view this mobilization as a process. It is a process of creating an anti-capitalist network for freedom of movement. For this mobilization to be a success, groups and individuals from a diversity of locales and experiences must make this project their own. We hope that others see this as an opportunity to build a platform from which this struggle can be demonstrated and articulated.

Ageist Editorial Cartoon from SD Union Tribune

San Diego, 12.05.2007 07:38

As you look at the cartoon, mother and father look at their daughter protesting. Apparently, Paris Hilton got in trouble with the law and so this girl (of 2007) walks proudly with the "FREE PARIS HILTON" sign. And the mother says, "I guess every generation has its own idea of social activism."

To me personally, that's bullshit. I have not seen any person of my generation walk around with signs as ridiculous as that. I didn't really get the cartoon because really, I haven't heard or seen anyone speaking for Paris Hilton. And if I did, I'd smack the shit out of them haha.

UC Students Occupy Berkeley &quot;Anti-Poverty&quot; Center in Support of Custodians

Santa Cruz, CA, 11.05.2007 23:40

On Tuesday, May 8, students from UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley occupied the UC "Anti-Poverty" Center protesting poverty wages by demanding that the UC release $8.5 million earmarked for custodians by the State Legislature. The UC administration has been holding up the money - meant for low-paid workers on 4 campuses - in an attempt to force concessions in contract negotiations. Meanwhile, The Coup's Boots Riley joined Danny Glover in boycotting UC Berkeley's graduation speech in support of the custodians' wage-parity campaign.

Harvard Hunger Strike Ends

Boston, 11.05.2007 22:08

Don't consider this post exhaustive, because I don't think I can do it justice, but the hunger strikers broke their fast today. At the 1 PM rally today, we heard from a couple of members of the guards' bargaining committee who thanked the hunger strikers for everything they'd done and asked them to keep their health in mind. Then Michael read parts of a public statement issued today after the strikers' meeting with Marilyn Hausammann, the University's vice president for human resources. It affirmed Harvard's commitment to a living wage (in sort of ambiguous terms - I believe the phrasing was that the wage should ensure a "minimally decent" standard of living) and stated that Harvard does not intend to use outsourcing as a means for busting unions or lowering wages. The University will publicize the results of its audit of AlliedBarton's compliance with the parity policy sometime next week, probably Monday, and meet with SLAM representatives and other community members shortly after.

Healthy Pets Act to Reduce Dog and Cat Euthanasia

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.05.2007 19:39

Every year, over 800,000 pets end up in shelters in California. Taxpayers spend $250 million to house these abandoned cats and dogs and then euthanize the majority of them. Proponents of the Healthy Pets Act, a mandatory spay/neuter law, point to the wide availability of free and low-cost spay/neuter services and say it is a common sense solution to the problem of pet overpopulation. Advocates of the bill plan to mass in Sacramento in support of the proposed law.

NYC, 11.05.2007 18:08

Due to its inability to deal with the demand that the state change from a Jewish ethnocracy to a real democracy, Israel is these days opening a new front in the attack on its Palestinian citizens. This front has taken shape in the form of Shabak [Israel's General Security Services - equivalent to the US FBI] statements to the effect that the demands of Israeli Arabs for equality is subversive and will be terminated even if it is not against the law, in the definition of Israeli Arabs as a strategic threat, and most of all in the invention of a criminal case against one of the most prominent leaders of the the Palestinian public in Israel - Azmi Bishara.

Where are the barn swallows?

Portland, 11.05.2007 14:41

Every year, there have been fewer, now there are just a handful.

Succumbing to years of nest-scraping and destruction of wooden eaved buildings, the barn swallow has become a rare sight in Astoria. The few large populations of the past years are reduced to just a handful. very unsettling the dead quiet evenings here, very few birds. A flush of goldfinches were hanging out at the feeders last week, yesterday, I nearly tripped on a lone male feeding on the ground. He flew away for a minute, then hopped back down to the sunflower seeds`scattered below the feeder, and stayed a long while, didn't look well. No one else around.

How are the birds doing in Portland?

While he could not control the DA or the "grand" jury, he nonetheless is asking for the termination of Lt. Jeffrey Kaer, for "using poor judgement," in the shooting.

Lt. Jeffrey Kaer used "poor judgment and decision-making" and violated bureau policies and training when he fatally shot 28-year-old Dennis Young on Jan. 4, 2006, according to the Mayor's memo.

Assistant Chief Lynnae Berg presented the mayor's proposed termination letter to Kaer on Wednesday and placed him on paid administrative leave.

I'm ashamed of myself for not finding this info earlier.

Nuclear Warhead Convoy Secretly Passes Through Chilwell, Nottingham

United Kingdom, 11.05.2007 10:09

It has come to light that in the early hours of Thursday 10th May a convoy carrying nuclear warheads secretly passed through the Stapleford and Chilwell area of Nottingham. The vehicles were spotted driving into the Chetwynd Barracks in Chilwell at 6.30am for a rest stop. Heading for the Royal Naval Armament Depot (RNAD) in Coulport, Scotland, the convoy was spotted along the M1 and also the next day as it continued its route along the east coast and along the Edinburgh Bypass. According to a spokesperson for Nukewatch UK, who keeps an eye on nuclear convoys around the UK, the route hasn't been used since the early 90's. She also mentioned that no convoys have been spotted entering the Chetwynd Barracks and it might be an indication of the convoys starting to use the Chetwynd Barracks for rest stops.

The convoy passed through dense populated areas in Stapleford and Chilwell before and after its rest stop at the army base on Chetwynd Road, Chilwell. According to campaigners each lorry weighs approx 44 tonnes and can carry up to 2 ready assembled nuclear warheads, which can contain up to 8 kg of plutonium and uranium each. Each of the modern warheads has the capacity of creating 8 times the impact of that of the bombs used in the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by America in 1945. The convoy was spotted leaving Burfield Atomic Weapons Establishment, 50 miles North of London around 12.30am on Thhursday morning. At Burfield AWE the warheads and explosives get assembled into working nuclear weapons. There were people stationed along the route from Stirling to Coulport attempting to resist the convoy. Read report.

Objeci�n fiscal a los gastos militares!!

Euskal Herria, 11.05.2007 08:09

Un a�o m�s se acerca (ya est� encima de nosotr@s) esa maravillosa forma de sentirse ciudadan@, que es pagar el impuesto de la renta. Y tambi�n un a�o m�s desde diversos grupos antimilitaristas y sociales se invita a la gente a hacerse objetor@s a los gastos militares.

Este a�o 2007, seg�n el Presupuesto General del Estado el gasto militar supone el 12% del gasto p�blico. El presupuesto para investigaci�n militar supone casi 3 veces m�s que el dedicado a investigaci�n cient�fica b�sica; m�s de 5 veces el de investigaci�n sanitaria; 22 veces el de investigaci�n agraria y 31 el de investigaci�n oceanogr�fica y pesquera. S�lo 5 empresas vinculadas a la industria militar (EADS-CASA, Santa B�rbara Sistemas, SENER, Izar e ITP) se llevan el doble de dinero del que reciben en conjunto todas las Universidades y el CSIC para I+D civil.

La manera de realizarlo es sencilla, simplemente consiste en entregar un escrito declar�ndote objetor a los gastos militares, y solicitando, por ello, que la parte proporcional de tus impuestos, que el estado planea gastar en lo militar, sea invertida en la construcci�n de la paz basada en la justicia. Como bien nos indican desde los grupos antimilitaristas, hay dos formas de hacerlo, ambas igual de v�lidas y valiosas, pero con diferente nivel de compromiso. Para m�s informaci�n de c�mo hacerlo, contactar:

  • Kakitzat: llamar al 652 762 232
  • Grupo de Objeci�n Fiscal de Gipuzkoa (KEM-MOC): escribir o llamar al 666-619586
  • KEM-MOC de Bilbo: escribir o llamar al 94-4619586
  • Grupo de Objeci�n Fiscal - Iru�eko KEM-MOC: escribir o llamar al 948 21 05 30 o pasarse los martes por Bakearen Etxea, Merced 18 bajo. 3001. Iru�ea
