Support Popular Power in Oaxaca

NYC, 17.07.2007 22:08

Once again the history of Oaxaca is stained with blood at the hands of Governor Ulises Ruiz and President Felipe Calderon due to the repression of the cultural, artistic and political expression of Oaxacans as they work to take back the traditional Oaxacan celebration Guelegetza. The Guelegetza, originally a celebration between communities of the central valleys of Oaxaca, has been co-opted by political and capitalist interests, converting the once indigineous celebration of exchange between communities into tourist-driven show-business where the tourist dollars go directly into the pockets of the wealthy and corrupt who support Governor Ulises Ruiz.

The Other Campaign in New York in the U.S Social Forum

NYC, 17.07.2007 22:08

We are happy that we put in the effort to travel from New York to Atlanta because it turned out that, in the U.S. Social Forum, ours was the only session directly addressing the Zapatista Movement, the 6th Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, and the Other Campaign. It was one of the few sessions at the Forum in which the workshop was completely bilingual, in Spanish and English. It was also a very special workshop, among the hundreds of workshops and round tables that were presented in those three days, because it was prepared and conducted by humble and simple people of the community and not by professional organizers and activists. Perhaps because of those unique characteristics was there such enthusiastic participation on the part of the public, complete with applause and cheers, and the spontaneous singing of the Zapatista hymn.

Court: Coho Protections Must Be Reinstated

Rogue Valley, 17.07.2007 21:39

A federal judge has recommended that the Bush administration’s decision to remove endangered species protections for Oregon Coast coho salmon be declared illegal.

“This is a victory for good science and for Oregon’s future,” said Earthjustice attorney Patti Goldman, who argued the case for the groups. “Restoring protections for these salmon today means a greener and economically vibrant Oregon tomorrow.”

Daniel's First Outbound Communication

Portland, 17.07.2007 21:08

July 9, 2007 Blog Friends, Well, I have been here one week now and although I don't have any stamps yet, and writing with a 4 inch pen that bends is miserable, I thought I would write if only to say I'm OK. A good place to start and a question you may have is "why did I have to report so early?" I'll start from my sentencing. On June 4th, Judge Aiken sentenced me to a term in federal prison of 84 months, just 8 months less than what the prosecution wanted, citing my activism from 2001 to my arrest. My legal team files a motion asking for me to stay out on bond pending designation.However, the prosecution objected citing three reasons:

1. They said my interview with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now! in early June showed I had no remorse from my crimes.
2. My support website, was "operational."
3. That had a link to sell a children's book which encouraged children to employ arson and sabotage as a tactic.

As luck would have it, I lost and was directed to report to prison on July 2. Regarding the prosecution's brief, my interview with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now! was quite long and I expressed regret at many points. My assertion that I did not do anything morally wrong seems to be the quote that got a reaction. The website, , run by my wife Jenny since January 2006 is online and last I checked, will continue to be online for the indefinite future.

UPDATE: Daniel will be leaving MDC Brooklyn soon. Please hold off on sending letters until we have a new address for him. |>

Galiza, 17.07.2007 16:08

Achega-se o 25 de Julho. Para o movimento é un dia de encontro no que pensar a injustiça que se nos inflige por nascer e/ou querer viver na Galiza. Pode que se bote em falta o momento para o debate e desenho de estratégias de loita. Desde o colectivo editorial somos conscientes da importáncia que este momento concreto tem e gostariamos de abrir este espaço editorial a um debate inteligente sobre o que pode ser a reivindicaçom da Galiza hoje. Qualquera pode entender que, nestes tempos globais, conceitos como Estado, soberania, autodeterminaçom, etc tenhem mudado o seu significado. Mas, em quê medida? Para significar que outra cousa? Quales seriam, nesta redefiniçom do discurso de libertaçom nacional (o discurso que reivindica a dignidade de nascer na Galiza), as possíveis soluçons institucionais à qüestom nacional (independência, federalismo, etc.)? Quê significam em derradeira instáncia estes mesmos conceitos-soluçom e como se ligam aos conceitos que podem dar expressom hoje ao que segue a ser um feito (nascer na Galiza é nascer baixo umha forma de opressom que cómpre erradicar)? Quales podem ser os jeitos e ferramentas de loita mais atinados? Onde ubicar o recurso à violência? Quales podem ser as suas implicaçons tácticas no contexto actual? Paga a pena alimentar a estratégia da tensom coa que o Estado tem tentado historicamente inducir comportamentos das redes do movimento? Aqui vam algumhas das qüestons, que nom esgotam nem moito menos o tema. A cada quem, embora, de engadir o que se lhe ocorrer. Que comece o debate daquela!

Protesty pielęniarek - podsumowanie

Poland, 17.07.2007 01:09

Przez prawie miesiąc (27 dni) trwały w Warszawie protesty pielęgniarek i położnych, wspierane przez związki zawodowe lekarzy, górników, nauczycieli, tramwajarzy i różne środowiska społeczne (mieszkańców Warszawy, ludzi nauki i kultury, parlamentarzystów róznych frakcji, feministki, anarchistów, i in.). Pracownicy służby zdrowia domagali się podwyżek płac i przeznaczenia większych środków na opiekę zdrowotną. Cieszący się dużym poparciem społecznym protest spotkał się z lekceważeniem ze strony władz, brutalnością policji i próbami kryminalizacji środowiska lekarskiego. Nie osiągnąwszy zadowalającej reakcji ze strony władz pielęgniarki zwinęły wczoraj namiotowe białe miasteczko. Jego zawieszenie nie oznacza końca protestu, nie oznacza też, ze pielęgniarki zrezygnowały ze swoich postulatów. Kontynuacja akcji protestacyjnej zapowiadana jest na wrzesień, w czasie kiedy strona rządowa zapowiedzała wznowienie rozmów.

Domestic Workers Take US Social Forum By Storm; Form National Alliance

NYC, 16.07.2007 22:38

During the US Social Forum, New York-based Domestic Workers United (DWU) and over ten other domestic worker organizations from California to Maryland founded a historic national network of domestic workers to link their struggles and more effectively agitate for change. As Celeste Escobar of DWU commented, "We need it more now than ever…"

Stemming from the history of slavery, domestic workers are excluded from most basic labor protections US workers enjoy. And that legacy continues as nearly the whole workforce is foreign-born women of color, who are forced to migrate to the United States in search of viable employment opportunities.

"Hem decidit aturar les obres per dir prou, per dir que n’estem fartes de que les diferents administracions facin i desfacin a gust mentre que els que paguem sempre som les mateixes, la gent dels barris. Perquè aquesta obra no només no resol una de les reivindicacions històriques del barri com és el soterrament de les vies per no tenir un barri dividit en quadrants, sinò que l’accentua construint-hi un calaix de 16 metres d’alçada."

A.C.E. is under threat of closure, due to the landlord seeking planning permission to convert the premises into a flat.
This comes to a shock as the only remaining radical social centre in Scotland has just undergone expensive renovations by the residents.
Friends and users of the facility have initiated a letter-writing campaign of objections to the planning department at Edinburgh Council.

PREAPPRENTICED discrimination and deunionization in NYC construction

After 40 years, the City of New York has returned to racist tokenism in it's so called "minority worker training programs" in the construction industry.

Notes on the Young Left, from Two of Its Own

NYC, 16.07.2007 03:38

As two young radicals and as participants in recent student struggles, we hope to help reopen a conversation among the young left about the movement we have and the movement we want. Ours are but two voices, grounded in our own thinking and experience, so we wish to invite more voices to join in this conversation in the days to come. Against the system's conspiracy of silence, a young left must find itself and speak to itself through its own collective voice.

Convergence for Climate Action - August 8-14

San Diego, 16.07.2007 02:38


Just under a month from now -- August 8-14th -- regional North American Convergences for Climate Action will bring hundreds of social justice and environmental activists together to fight the fossil fuel empire and create truly sustainable, bio-regionally appropriate and community-based responses to climate change. The events on the West Coast and in the Southeast are modeled after the inspiring 2006 Climate Camp in the UK, which will reemerge this year at Heathrow Airport from August 14th-21st.

Part networking and activist skills training, part community sustainability demonstration site, the Convergences aim to invigorate the Climate Movement by pulling together communities of resistance. We aim to inject an anti-oppression, justice-focused agenda, and to demonstrate examples of truly sustainable, less energy-intensive lives that don't depend on the oppression, thievery, and destruction attached to fossil fuel extraction.

Sneinton Festival Rolls On

United Kingdom, 15.07.2007 19:07

The Sneinton Festival took part for the 13th year running last week. The theme of this year's festival was Earth, Wind and Fire, with a focus on green energy. Schools and youth groups from around Sneinton have been working hard to make fantastic costumes for this year’s parade. Many feel this year's festival was one of the best one yet, creating a sense of pride within the community and involving local children increasing their self esteem, skills and confidence in art. The Caves had been opened up on Wednesday, while on Thursday the International Food Tasting Evening gathered hundreds in the Hermitage Community Centre. On Saturday a big parade took off from Sneinton Windmill, along the Dale and down the Boulevard onto the Hermitage Square. On the square performances took place all afternoon, with workshops and stalls. One stall showed people how to build their own wind turbines while elsewhere folk were informed about why they should make their way over to this year's climate camp.

National Express to WOMAD- Cripps Keep Out!

Bristol, 15.07.2007 14:07

Womad is in Wiltshire. If you are travelling from Bristol, and can offer a lift, please contact Laura Laura writes: National express coaches refuse to make the coach to WOMAD a wheelchair accessible one, or disassemble a portable mobility scooter that could be put in the boot of an ordinary coach. People who need powered mobility vehicles must travel with a 'minder' to do that bit for them, or national express won't take them. An electric wheelchair user's only hope of getting to the festival now lies in being offered a lift in a large van with lots of space before the tickets sell out (approx 1 week) ... For those of you that don't know, national express are putting on 1 coach there on the thurs, 1 there on fri and 2 coaches back on the monday. That's it. So, you may expect, as I did, that they could stretch to making sure the coach was wheelchair accessible. No chance! They say they would have to take a coach off a currently accessible route to do this. Funny, you'd think they would have a spare or two for the coach hire side of their business ... If you want to force public transport to 'up its game' on accessibility - as an environmental, or equalities, issue - boycott the bastards and let them know what you are doing, and why. These nigh-on monopoly transport companies have had 12 years to get their act together yet national express only have a handful of accessible routes in the whole country - and none of them go from/to Bristol as far as I have been able to find out.

United Kingdom, 15.07.2007 07:08

Following failed talks with the Royal Mail management, postal workers across the country went on a second 24-hour strike in two weeks, starting at 7pm on Thursday, June 12th. Pickets were again held at sorting offices in the evening and many more at delivery offices and depots the following morning. In Birmingham, three picket lines were formed at each gate of the main mail centre in Newtown. Solidarity from fellow workers, as well as from members of the West Midlands branch of the Industrial Workers of the World union (IWW), was impressive.

A Story From An ICE Detention Facility

San Diego, 15.07.2007 06:37

Sr. X is an undocumented worker who resides in the West Coast. In 2007 he was taken in hand cuffs from his town by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and transported to a West Coast detention facility. There he was forced to put on one of three colors of jumpsuits. His jumpsuit was blue, the other colors being orange and red. Red signified the highest level of “illegality,” orange the medium level and blue the lowest threat level. Sr. X was put into a large room that, while he was there, held 200 human beings. There were five toilets for everyone stuck there. Brazilians, Argentineans, Guatemalans, Mexicans, “Africans” and “Asians” (Sr. X’s terms) made up the population of that cramped room.
