Fresno City Council Votes to Install Portable Toilets for the Homeless

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.05.2007 19:39

The Fresno city council voted on Tuesday, May 15, 2007, to approve the installation of two portable toilets and a trash bin at a homeless encampment in downtown Fresno. The 6-1 vote, directing the city manager's office to provide these facilities, was necessary because the mayor and city manager had not moved forward with an earlier request from the city council on April 10. The city manager, at that time, refused to follow the direction of the city council, leading some to ask who was running the City of Fresno - the elected members of the city council or city manager Andrew Souza.

Arms Dealers' Conference Disrupted

United Kingdom, 17.05.2007 17:40

The Shepard Group annual conference on Electronic Warfare was successfully disrupted by activists on Tuesday 15th by a surprise action. The Olympia Conference Centre in central London hosted the event that, under the title of "First in Defence - First to Counter", arms dealers converged to sell 'high tech' weaponry and assorted murder equipment to each other. People who are involved in campaigning against the arms trade were not going to let it go unnoticed.

Protesters managed to get onto the roof and drop a banner that said "Smart Bombs- Stupid Wars" whilst other demonstrators in suits managed to infiltrate the conference. After a tour of the place they were able to disrupt events with shouts of "Murderers! War Criminals!" before being thrown out by large men in ill-fitting suits.

Meanwhile as this was happening a Samba band turned up as protesters with megaphones and flyers told passers by and staff at the Olympia Conference Centre about the war crimes committed by the delegates present at the conference. A US officer was spotted walking away from the conference and was hounded by demonstrators. The action lasted over two hours, and there were no arrests. [Read full article and Photos]

Resisting the Arroyo Regime - Free Ka Bel Movement national speaking tour

Aotearoa, 17.05.2007 11:10

Dennis Maga, a Filipino trade unionist and the spokesperson for the Free Ka Bel Movement, is touring the country in the coming week to speak. Maga, the Secretary General of ANGLO-KMU (General Workers Federation within the May First Labour Movement), will be speaking at public meetings around the country on resistance to state terrorism in the Phillipines.

His national speaking tour was planned to coincide with the NZ visit of Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, between May 27th-30th, for an interfaith dialogue in Waitangi, hosted by Helen Clark. Since Arroyo came to power six years ago, nearly 850 people have died in extrajudicial killings and many have been detained – including left-wing politicians, rights activists, unionists, journalists and religious leaders. Renowned human rights expert and New York University Professor, Philip Alston, has said that “virtual impunity” prevails in the country with regard to the extrajudicial killings which are “convincingly attributed” to the military.

Corrupt Mexican Union Leader to Speak at UCSD

San Diego, 17.05.2007 06:10

Elba Esther Gordillo Morales, the head of the Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores para la Educación - SNTE (National Education Workers Union), will be speaking this Thursday (5/17) at 7 pm at the Institute of the Americas which is located on the UCSD campus in La Jolla. She is a union leader in the traditional Mexican mold - corrupt and open to collusion with right-wing political parties. She created a new section in Oaxaca to try to reduce the power of Section 22, the most radical, organized and powerful local in Mexico. She collaborated with the PAN (Partido de Accion Nacional) to assure the victory of current ultra right-wing president Felipe Calderon. Basically, she is a perfect ally for the Institute of the Americas, the same organization that gave the Peace and Democracy Award to the criminal ex-president of Mexico Vicente Fox.

We will be at the event in full force to confront Gordillo about her recent attempts to repress the social movements in Oaxaca and her attack on the social security of Mexican teachers, especially those in Mexicali where there is currently a blockade of a major street over Gordillo's actions. Please come join us in expressing our indignation! Bring your friends!

The event is free to attend. You can register online here.

Global Mobilization for Mumia's May 17 Day in Court

Portland, 17.05.2007 04:41

On May 17, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in the case of internationally renowned black death-row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal. The court will consider four different issues that it has already certified for appeal. It will then decide to either grant a new trial, affirm the life sentence, or re-instate the death sentence.

Mumia was the victim of a political frame-up. An award-winning journalist, he was the leading critic of the Philadelphia Police Department, many of whose officers had been indicted and convicted on numerous charges of corruption, intimidation of witnesses and planting evidence. Mumia deserves another trial, a fair trial, one unlike the one that has caused him to sit on death row for 25 years.

Presidential Candidate: Senator Reid was Right, War is Lost

Baltimore, 16.05.2007 23:11

Reid is now opposing the Iraq War because the U.S. is losing; he initially supported the war and backed the invasion. The war is another imperial adventure by the U.S. and there is a growing divide, by those supporters of U.S. imperialism, that a continued war is weakening U.S. imperialism.

What transformed the Christian right from a bunch of lunatic clowns who thought the name of the band Kiss stood for "Kids in Satan's Service" to a powerful bloc in the Republican Party? The Rev. Jerry Falwell, who died May 15 at the age of 73, symbolized that change, when his self-styled "Moral Majority" emerged as a key force behind the election of Ronald Reagan.

&quot;Stop the hostage detentions in Mt. Eden Prison&quot; - Protest this Saturday in Auckland

Aotearoa, 16.05.2007 07:17

Auckland group Global Peace and Justice Auckland have put a call-out for people to join a protest this Saturday against the hostage detentions of five Iranians being held in Mt Eden prison without charges or trial.

GPJA have released details of the asylum seekers, "Ali Reza Panah (detained 18 months) and Amir Mohebbi (detained now for more than three years despite having 3 young kiwi children) are two of the five." All five of the detainees are believed to be held in situations not dissimilar to Thomas Yadegary who was released last month after public pressure. Tis protest follows a similar one that was held two weeks ago.

Santa Cruz, CA, 15.05.2007 23:11

A hunger strike initiated by 44 UC students, several alumni and a professor has passed its 1-week mark. The hunger strikers are demanding that the UC Board of Regents withdraw from their contracts to operate Los Alamos and Livermore National Laboratories based on, "the grounds that the Reliable Replacement Warhead program and Los Alamos Labs' ongoing preparations to conduct plutonium pit manufacturing both clearly violate Article VI of the 1970 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty." The UC has been identified by the hunger strikers as a site of strategic importance in the campaign against new nuclear weapons.



London Solidarity Protest Against G8 Repression In Germany

United Kingdom, 15.05.2007 21:10

About 50 people gathered at the Kempinski Hotel in London on Friday 11th May, to show their solidarity with the victims of the G8 raids in Germany last week, and to express their opposition to the upcoming G8 Summit of early June [call]. Kempinski is the hotel group hosting this year's Summit of the world's eight most powerful states in Heiligendamm, Germany.

The Met had 'designated' a pen on the opposite side of the street, but protesters refused to be penned in and stayed by the hotel, without entirely blocking the pavement. Some leaflets were given out whilst, as it has become the norm in London, the FIT kept harrassing protestors by trying to get good shots of their faces.

Many more solidarity demonstrations have taken place throughout the world, including one in Edinburgh where the German consulate had already been attacked with paint. Next G8 UK mobilisation meeting in London May 17th.

Key leaders of the peasant struggle in San Salvador Atenco, Mexico state, have been sentenced to 67 years 6 months in prison, in a vicious act of class revenge.
