G8 Protest: Summit Blockaded From All Sides

United Kingdom, 13.06.2007 12:05

Friday 8th June:
On Friday the blockades ended and a few thousand people assembled at Rostock train station for a march down to the harbour. Many were returning from spending the night camped out around Heiligendam. It was unbelievably hot and the occasion had a party atmosphere. Following the demo a few hundred people headed down to the prison to show solidarity with those still being held. The Police stopped them from getting up close to the prison so a main road was occupied nearby for a few of hours.Report and Pics. To see the full picture of what happened see: Breaking News (en) for updates.

Over 10,000 Blockade the G8 Summit in Germany: All land access to the summit is cut off.

DC, 13.06.2007 11:55

On the morning of June 6th as leaders of the eight riches countries( U.S., U.K. France, Italy, Canada, Japan, Germany and Russia) landed at Rostock Laage Airport to begin the G8 summit, over 10,000 demonstrators converged to blockade the summit. All the while protesters have known that stopping the leaders from meeting would be a near impossibility. But blocking their infrastructure, forcing a change in plan and causing delays were all things within the realm of possibility.

What are you afraid of?

DC, 13.06.2007 11:54

Excuse the dangling participle in the title of this essay, but I really don't care about being grammaticly correct right now; I have a war to help stop! and I will make no apologies for my own tactics of recent months in trying to steer public opinion toward feeling obligated to help stop the U.S. imperialism that continues to occupy Iraq and threatens to bomb civillian populations in Iran and elsewhere in the world; I don't give a shit about being politically correct either (But I guess you may have already figured that out), and I am not sorry for using language you might find offensive. Let's cut to the chase... I am writing this to tell you to shut the fuck up!!! If you are not willing to get out of your comfort zone and start taking action to stop the endless war that the multi-national corporatists are waging on the common people of planet Earth, then stop complaining about it. Quit forwarding emails from Move On and True Majority and UFPJ or whoever; quit blogging about how you hate the Iraq War; quit bitching about how your Representatives and Senators don't represent you; quit trying to convince Cindy Sheehan to change her mind about leaving the "peace movement" (It's your own fault for not truly backing her up); just quit.



Migrant worker exploitation, $200 for 70-hour weeks the &quot;tip of the iceberg&quot;

Aotearoa, 13.06.2007 11:54

Eight migrant workers from Thailand last week had their work permits revoked and then reinstated after they complained about the illegal conditions under which they were working while pruning vines in the South Island.

The eight workers got national media attention after the owner of the vineyard they worked at threatened Seddon Pastor Brett Duffy for "meddling" in his affairs. The workers had paid recruitment agencies up to $14,000 each yet their employer, Havenleigh Global Services had them working 60 to 70-hour, seven-day weeks, including on public holidays. For this the workers received $200 a week, of which $96 was deducted for rent. Pastor Duffy told The Marlborough Express that this "was the tip of the iceberg".

South Auckland Hotel Workers Strike Against Poverty Wages

Aotearoa, 13.06.2007 11:54

Around fifty workers and supporters picketed outside Auckland’s Centra Airport hotel on Monday evening while Justice Department officials inside were holding a conference on Pasifika issues. The hotel staff were striking in support of a 5% pay increase.

“The wages are so low people cannot not make ends meet” says Unite union organiser Daphna Whitmore. “The dire situation was tragically highlighted when Mr Muliuga’s wife died after their electricity was cut”, she said.

Lopa Muliaga works in the kitchen at the Centra and, like many hotel staff, earns just $12 an hour. He joined a picket outside the hotel on May 29. Lopa was not rostered on but came to support his workmates. Later that day his wife died after the power was cut at their home.

While the wages are minimal the hotel is spending $10 million on refurbishments. Many workers are in debt and really struggling. Centra’s parent company, Intercontinental Hotel Group, made operating profits of $NZ606 million last year

TONGA: Sedition charges going to court

Aotearoa, 13.06.2007 11:54

Five Tongan People's Representatives, charged with sedition in relation to the Nuku'alofa riots, have asked not to be tried by a jury, but by judge alone. The accused, 'Akilisi Pohiva, 'Isileli Pulu, William Clive Edwards, Lepolo Taunisila and 'Uliti Uata will be submitted in six weeks time to the Supreme Court for a trial date to be set. The alleged incident took place in the Cabinet Room at the Prime Minister's Office on the afternoon of November 16 last year.

A second sedition charge jointly for Pohiva, Edwards and Uata, relates to speeches they made at Pangai Si'i on November 14. There is also a joint charge of unlawful assembly for all five accused, which will be submitted also to the Supreme Court because it is under their jurisdiction. The preliminary inquiry hearing into the sedition charges ran from May 14-30.

Tonga's Prime Minister, Fred Sevele, says his government is still committed to political reform, but change will not come as fast as some might prefer - a promise heard many times by the pro-democracy movement in the past 30 years. [ More ]

'Akilisi Pohiva will speak at a seminar on Thursday, 14 June, 10am - 3pm, Fale Pasifika, University of Auckland, 20-26 Wynyard St. Other speakers are Lopeti Senituli, Political Advisor to the Prime Minister; Dr Malakai Koloamatangi, Canterbury University and Sitiveni Halapua, Acting Chairman of the Tonga National Committee for Political Reform.

On the Eve of a Free Trade Area of the Pacific – Occupation, neo-colonialism and enclosure

Aotearoa, 13.06.2007 11:54

New Zealand Minister for Trade Phil Goff has announced that talks will begin in August to begin the process of imposing a Free Trade Agreement to bind the economies of the sixteen nations of the Pacific Islands Forum together. Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga, the Solomon Islands, Samoa, Papua New Guinea and a range of other small island nations together comprise the Pacific Islands Forum.

The Free Trade Area of the Pacific has been in the pipeline at the Pacific Islands Forum for years now as New Zealand and Australian capital seek to carve out throughout the Pacific new markets, cheap natural resources and a flexible and disposable labour force.

The recent year in the Pacific has only heightened the increasing tension between the interests of Australian, New Zealand and American capital and those of Pacific peoples subject to increased repression, surveillance, control and impoverishment. In Timor Leste, Tonga and the Solomon Islands Australia and New Zealand have intervened directly into the political affairs to enforce their control over these nations and curb, criminalise and destroy popular social movements.

Joan Saura denove defendas la subpremon

Por la pasinta 19a de majo la Asembleo de Okupantoj kunvokis manifestacion favore al la okupado kaj al la popola kaj kontraŭkapitalisma kulturo. Tiun manifestacion oni subite malkunvokis tuj post la ekiro, ĉar oni vidis, ke ne eblis ĝin normale okazigi pro la sinteno de la polico. Malgraŭ tio, la polico, aroge kaj perforteme, kidnapis la manifestantojn dum du pliaj horoj malpermesante homojn ĝin eniri aŭ eliri ĝis kiam oni preskaŭ atingis la havenon. Kaj Joan Saura, ministro pri Internaj Aferoj, el ICV-EUiA, kaj Imma Mayol, kandidatino al la magistrato de Barcelono de la sama ruĝ-verda koalicio, defendis la agadon de la polico.

En ĉiu momento la manifestantojn ĉirkaŭis kordono de policanoj, kiuj batis brutale ĉiun homon klopodantan eniri aŭ eliri la manifestacion ,ĉu per klaboj kaj puŝoj, ĉu per pik-armilo nomita kubotano; fakte oni pensas ke, krom la kontuz-plenaj, pli ol 15 homoj estis agresitaj per tiu nova armilo dubinde laŭleĝa.

Spaniens Sozialisten auf Konfrontationskurs

Germany, 13.06.2007 11:54

Nach dem Ende der Waffenruhe der baskischen Untergrundorganisation ETA gehen die spanischen Sozialisten auf Konfrontationskurs, obwohl noch nicht einmal ein Anschlag passiert ist. Gestern wurde erneut der Batasuna-Chef Arnaldo Otegi verhaftet, dazu zuvor einige mutmaßliche ETA-Mitglieder in Frankreich und der Ex-Hungerstreiker Juana de Chaos wurde statt in Hausarrest aus dem Krankenhaus in den Knast überstellt.

Es ist kein Zufall, dass als Rache nun gestern erneut der Batasuna-Chef Arnaldo Otegi verhaftet wurde. Den hatte der spanische Ministerpräsident Zapatero bisher als "Mann des Friedens" bezeichnet. Im Friedensprozess wurde er noch vom Vorwurf frei gesprochen worden, er habe die ETA verherrlicht zu haben, als er auf der Beerdigung einer jungen Militanten sprach.



G8: Das war der Gipfel

Germany, 13.06.2007 11:54

Für die globalisierungskritische Bewegung war es ein voller Erfolg: Zehntausenden Menschen gelang es, den Gipfel der Gruppe der Acht, der vom 6. bis zum 8. Juni in Heiligendamm stattfand, praktisch zu delegitimieren. Trotz massiver Polizeirepression, Einschränkungen von Grundrechten und des Einsatzes von mehr als 16.000 PolizistInnen schafften sie es in einem Zusammenspiel verschiedener Aktionsformen, die Zufahrtsstraßen nach Heiligendamm zu blockieren und so den reibungslosen Ablauf des Treffens zu stören. Die Tage zuvor waren geprägt von Aktionen zu den Themen Landwirtschaft, Migration und Krieg. Auf einem Gegengipfel wurde während der Gipfelzeit über Alternativen zur G8-Politik debattiert. Am Freitag, dem offiziellen Ende des Gipfels, schallten dann Sprechchöre durch die Rostocker Innenstadt, die die Gipfelproteste als einen Sieg feierten.

Auf der anderen Seite des 12-Millionen-Zauns, hinter dem sich die Regierungschefs einiger der wirtschaftlich und militärisch stärksten Länder des Nordens verschanzten, passierte wie erwartet nicht viel. Die Präsidenten verkauften ihre Lippenbekenntnisse als großen Erfolg, während sie ihre Politik fortführen, die für die Mehrheit der Menschheit ein unerträgliches Leben bedeutet und den Planeten in eine Klimakatastrophe treibt. Am Ende blieb - wie erwartet - nichts als Phrasen, Absichtserklärungen und leere Versprechungen übrig. So will man nun tatsächlich die Halbierung der CO²-Emissionen bis 2050 "ernsthaft in Betracht ziehen".

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.06.2007 11:53

George Cadman of Free Radio Santa Cruz 101.1 fm interviews Stephanie Seay of the Buffalo Field Campaign about the Montana state and the federal government practice of capturing wild buffalo on public lands and slaughtering them or transporting them hundreds of miles. In the last two weeks in Montana state and federal authorities planned to slaughter 300 wild buffalo, including calves and their mothers. In the last 7 years the government has trucked 2,000 wild buffalo to slaughter, 1,000 last year alone.



UCSC to Log 150 Acres of Trees for Expansion?

UC Santa Cruz is preparing to cut down approximately 150 acres of trees on upper-campus to make room for all the new buildings that are part of the much-criticized expansion plan. This would be one of the most serious logging operations on UCSC's campus in decades, meaning the loss of well over 1,000 trees - mostly 2nd generation redwoods and mixed evergreens.

Victory to the Quincy Teachers: The Figth for a Just Contract is Our Firght as Well

Boston, 13.06.2007 11:52

I must apologize at the outset for not having posted a solidarity statement with the Quincy, Massachusetts Education Association (QEA) before today, June 11, 2007 the second day of their walkout. This is doubly egregious as I was born in Quincy-the City of Presidents (John Adams and his son John Quincy Adams). The Quincy teacher walked out on Friday June 8, 2007 after taking a vote. From the news that I had heard I believed that their action was a one day affair a fairly familiar way to deal with stalled contract negotiations. However, these brothers and sisters are for real and seem determined to make their point and get a just contract. This in the face of a state Labor Relations Board decision that their walkout is illegal and the determination of the Quincy School Committee to seek a court injunction to force the teachers back to work.



Human Battery Cage at Lunardi's in Belmont

Members of East Bay Animal Advocates staged a protest on Sunday, June 10th, in front of the Lunardi's Market in Belmont to draw attention to what they say is animal cruelty behind the production of eggs sold by Lunardi's. East Bay Animal Advocates allege that the chickens used to produce eggs sold by Lunardi's food chain are kept in small battery cages that allow the birds virtually no mobility.
