Camp with No Borders

United Kingdom, 25.06.2007 06:37

2007 is witnessing a resurgence of No Border Camps, which were instrumental to the No Border movement from the late 1990's onwards. Three No Border camps for 2007 have recently been announced. The first will be in the Ukraine at the intersection of five countries and at the border of Fortress Europe. In September, it is the turn of our very own Gatwick airport, where the government is planning to build yet another prison for migrants. Finally, in November, there will be another No Border camp at the Mexico/US border, where every year hundreds of migrants die trying to cross the desert or at the hands of the vigilante 'border police', the Minutemen.

Elvira Arellano case to go to Supreme Court

Chicago, 25.06.2007 02:09

20 June 2007

The Centro Sin Fronteras and Adalberto United Methodist Church announced the filing of petition to the US Supreme Court to stop the deportation of Elvia Arellano. A statement released at the press conference read: "This nation has operated a system of undocumented labor for decades to its own benefit and must now take responsibility for the families that were formed here and the children who were born here. To do less is an abdication of responsibility, an attack on basic family values…and the continuation of unspeakable cruelty and suffering for children and families."

The petition calls for what many Republican congressfolk have often demanded, for the US government to take responsibility for its actions in the immigration arena and recognize there are permanent consequences to decades of selective enforcement of immigration policy. The announcement of the brief was made in the context of the growing movements for amnesty and integration of undocumented immigrants in the United States and included prominent figures in both the Chicago and New York branches of the Sanctuary Movement.

ICE Raid in Vista

San Diego, 24.06.2007 21:38

From Tina Jillings: June 21, 2007. This morning I witnessed for the first time an ICE raid. It happened right here in Townsite. I must be honest and say that I have never seen anything like this except on television and watching this activity unfold live I must admit it is traumatizing. One can only imagine what the families are going through because of this horrible experience.

This morning I witnessed a mother and father being taken from their home while their children stood by and watched. The children ranging from ages 9 to 1 years old witnessed the entire arrest and were horrified by the events. I do not know if they understood that their lives would never be same. They watched helplessly as their little worlds were falling apart right in front of their face. The two oldest were crying hysterically, as far as the two younger ones go, one was in total shock and unable to speak until about 45 minutes, and the baby was clutching onto his Aunt.

After their parents were gone they began to sob and cry for their mama y papi. The oldest child (Cristal, 9,) gave me a description of what happened inside the home while we were waiting outside. She said that early in the morning someone was pounding on their door. "They screamed to open the door or they will knock it down". She said that they hid under the bed because they were afraid, because this type of thing never happened before. She said her father answered the door and that the men began to scream at him "get down on the floor or they will shoot him. " They all came out of their hiding places because the "Police/ICE guys were going throughout the house with guns and rifles drawn. They began to question all of them and eventually they took her Mom and Dad away. Their Aunt was called to collect the four children. I obtained information from the Aunt and videotaped the aftermath of this operation.

The separation of families must stop! These atrocities will not stop until we unite, and with one voice make it clear that we demand the passing of compassionate, fair, humane immigration reform! These children are American citizens and their basic right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness has been violated. These abuses must stop now! The time to act is now!

28 SECONDS: The Killing of Fouad Kaady
For 18 months, the police and the corporate media have claimed that the killing of Fouad Kaady was justified. They said he was on drugs. They said they feared for their lives. They said he threatened to kill them. They said officers "never violated policies or procedures."
We beg to differ.

Chinatown - 5.03.07

Up a dusty flight of stairs in the heart of Boston's Chinatown lies the arterial lining of the Boston anti-biotech movement. Banners for the US Social Forum line the walls, stacks of the Bioustice 2007 underground newspaper sit prepared for distribution, and various flyers await eager hands. Amidst these tools of resistance, there is a murmur of activity as a motley crew of committed individuals plot and laugh heartily. These are not your typical anti-authoritarians.



No G8

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 19:09

This year's meeting of the Group of 8 (G8, the 7 richest nations in the world: Great Britain, United States, Germany, France, Japan, Italy, and Canada, plus Russia) was held in the resort of Heiligendamm, Germany from June 6-8. In response, tens of thousands of demonstrators arrived in the area in an effort to shut down the summit.



Anti-G8 Fallout: Learning from Past Actions in San Francisco

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 19:09

Fault Lines interviewed Josh Wolf and Gabe Meyers, the two people targeted by the federal and local authorities after the July 8, 2005 Anarchist Action Anti-G8 demonstration in San Francisco. Anti-capitalist protests and demonstrations against the G8, WTO, and other institutions that represent neo-colonial domination and corporate globalization have always been met with more aggression and hostility than normal marches for peace. Granted, these demonstrators are often much more militant. With a police officer injured and a police car damaged, the authorities felt a need to subpoena and prosecute.

Guerrilla Gardens

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 19:09

For those of us living in our modern cities land is a foreign concept. Stories of land conjure romantic images of countrysides far from our crowded neighborhoods, images that seem irrelevant to our lives. Even though we inhabit a landscape smothered with buildings and concrete, the struggles for land fought by rural people hold many important lessons for us as we strive for control over our lives and communities. When we consider the landless state of most poor people the world round and how most of us own no land, we realize we are all perpetually inhabiting someone else's space. Our lives and communities as well as our food supply are controlled by people in far away places whose main motivation is profit. When we start to reclaim some of this space we begin to take back our lives.



Sacco and Vanzetti

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 19:09

The story of Niccolo Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti was one so powerful that it is still lamented almost 90 years later. In 1920, the two Italian-American anarchists were convicted of murder outside of Boston and held for seven years before their execution in 1927. To the authorities' chagrin, the execution resounded as an electric shock heard 'round the world, as the two had garnered support from the far-reaching corners of the planet. Everyone knew the names Sacco and Vanzetti, and nearly everyone resented their deaths.



Pacifism Summer

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 19:09

State police, often serving as the order-preserving arms of global capitalism, have a simple formula for dissolving groups that pose a threat to that order. This formula has been documented for decades in the US and has even been applied against completely nonviolent groups. According to Ward Churchill in Pacifism as Pathology, reissued this year by AK press, the existence of such a formula brings up an inherent flaw in the logic of American Liberals and other totally ineffectual leftist groups that remain stridently critical of the use of violence in resisting the state. Churchill makes light of the absurdity of assuming that as long as dissent remains nonviolent, the state will be forced to follow suit. He then unveils the harsh truth that within nation-states that can mobilize violent use of force to protect ruling-class interests, the stance of absolute nonviolence has become a placebo for the progressive class, quelling their woes but changing nothing.



Rent is Theft, Housing is a Human Right

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 19:09

The housing situation in San Francisco is a prime example of the greatest evil of capitalism. Only those who can afford it get to be housed. Everyone else lives on the streets. They get trash talked by neighbors and politicians alike for the sin of being homeless. They are arrested or cited with "quality of life" citations.

KPFA's Webcasts to Go Silent in Protest of Royalty Rate Increase

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 04:14

Berkeley-based KPFA radio will join thousands of webcasters around the US in a Day of Silence on Tuesday, June 26th. KPFA is part of a national network that aims to draw attention to an impending July 15th royalty rate increase that, if implemented, would lead to the virtual shutdown of this country's Internet radio industry. Two bills that could alleviate the rate increase are moving slowly through Congress.



Microradio Blues

In Fault Lines #21, Rubble writes:

On February 15, 2007, three years after its demise, San Francisco Liberation Radio's (SFLR) case against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) finally reached the Ninth Circuit Court. This was the station's third appearance in court, and it unfortunately reached the same conclusion as the previous two: a decision overwhelmingly in favor of the FCC. A victory would have done nothing in regard to the station's ability to broadcast, but would have made it more difficult for the FCC to raid and shut down unlicensed microradio stations.



Clean Burn

In Fault Lines #21, Chris Avilla writes....

On April 19, City College of San Francisco celebrated Earth Day by showcasing alternative fuel and electrically powered vehicles on the school's Ram Plaza. Among the line-up of vehicles was a biodesiel 1974 El Camino Super Sport that some fellow CCSF students and I built in the school's Automotive Department. The EPA saw what we did with the El Camino and decided to give the garage a $200,000 biodiesel grant. In the end the grant money was put in the pockets of the administrators, with a small portion to go toward a biodiesel workshop that CCSF students are not allowed to attend.



No Love for Golddiggers

Indigenous Resurgence in Abya Yala

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2007 04:14

Guatemala City had never seen anything like it: thousands of Indigenous people from almost every country of the Americas coming together, celebrating their culture, and organizing resistance. This is the grand finale march on Guatemala City to top off the successful weeklong summit at nearby Iximché. The grey, suffocating streets are filled for once not with smog and gridlock, but with a blaze of color from the forest of rainbow colored flags and banners, and the sound of drums and pipes and maracas and the multitude of voices each with their own distinct language uniting to chant and sing together. Like the march of an army of the dispossessed-the invisibles-reclaiming the city of fear where once, not so long ago, they were hunted down, disappeared, and murdered with impunity by the state security forces.

Students, clergy, union members and veterans traveled to DC and visited with hundreds of Congressional offices to communicate clearly that there is no room for institutions like the SOA in the future that we want to see. Despite this, 214 Members of Congress missed the chance to stand up for human rights, justice and democracy, and voted to keep the funding for the SOA flowing.

Portland Event in Support of Briana Waters, 6/28

Portland, 23.06.2007 03:38

Community advocate Briana Waters has been caught up in the Bush administration's "eco-terrorist" hysteria. As a vocal pacifist and a devoted mother, Brianna is an unlikely candidate for a terrorist. Swept up during the hysteria of the renewal of the US Patriot Act, the charges are vague and and a product of guilt by association.

Friends and supporters will host a "Folk the Man!" benefit event on Thursday, June 28. The event will take place at Liberty Hall, 311 N. Ivy, beginning with speakers at 7PM and followed by music from 8PM onwards. Speakers will address Briana Waters' case, and also Bush administration's attacks on civil liberties and the right to criticize the government. Acclaimed folk artists Hanz Araki (myspace.com/hanzaraki) and Timothy Hull (timothyhull.com) will perform.

Admission for the event is a $10-20 sliding scale donation. All proceeds will benefit Briana Waters' legal defense.

Protest the Military for Gay Pride Saturday June 23

Portland, 22.06.2007 14:39

Members of The Surge Protection Brigade will hold protest at the Army/Marine Recruiting office at 1310 NE Broadway in honor of Gay Pride Month on Saturday, June 23 at 10:00 AM. The Theme of the protest is "DO Ask, DO Tell, DON'T JOIN. "Discrimination is wrong, said Bonnie Tinker, but serving as a hired soldier in the US Military is even worse." Youth are routinely given misleading information in an attempt to get them to sign up with the Military, says Ann Huntwork. "Once they are in they find out things are different than they expected and they can't get out."

The Surge Protection Brigade urges all youth to ASK military recruiters to leave them alone, to TELL recruiters that they can't be paid to enough go to Iraq where they will kill or be killed, and to refuse to JOIN an immoral and illegal war.

After the demonstration at the recruiting office, The Surge Protection Brigade will join Military Families Speak Out to protest a recruiting festival at Clackamette Park in Oregon City. The Army is sponsoring a picnic and play day for Portland-area residents who joined the Army. The event advertises a "virtual Army experience".



6 anni dopo Genova non è finita

Switzerland, 22.06.2007 08:07

A sei anni di distanza, grazie al lavoro del team di Supporto Legale, il sipario su Genova non è ancora calato.

Oltre a decine di processi civili per arresti illegali e pestaggi gratuiti, pendono ancora 5 importantissimi processi penali su poliziotti e manifetanti:
- Processo al Sud ribelle: [sintesi ed aggiornamenti]
- Processo ai 25 imputati di "devastazione e saccheggio": [sintesi ed aggiornamenti]
- Processo Perugini, 6 agenti DIGOS accusati di lesioni, falso ideologico e calunnia: [sintesi ed aggiornamenti]
- Processo sulle torture di Bolzaneto: [sintesi ed aggiornamenti]
- Mattanza della Diaz: [sintesi ed approfondimenti 1 | 2 | 3]

Proprio su quest'ultimo processo, Michelangelo Fournier, l'allora vice questore aggiunto del primo reparto mobile di Roma e oggi uno dei 28 poliziotti imputati per la sanguinosa irruzione nella scuola, ritrova la memoria ed ammette: "Sembrava una macelleria messicana".

Intanto il capo della polizia italiana Gianni de Gennaro è stato rimosso dal suo incarico ed ora è iscritto nel registro degli indagati per aver indotto l'ex questore di Genova a testimoniare il falso durante il dibattimento per la mattanza della Diaz.

Genova non è finita.
