Misbruik vreemdelingendetentie om grondrecht op anonimiteit te ondergraven

Netherlands, 05.08.2007 23:38

Op 3 augustus werden 2 activisten in vreemdelingendetentie geplaatst nadat zij weigerden hun recht op anonimiteit op te geven. Zij werden eerder die dag samen met een aantal anderen aangehouden na een actie van de werkgroep Stop Deportaties bij Kamp Zeist. Daar werd geprotesteerd tegen het feit dat mensen, buiten het strafrecht om, gedetineerd worden.

Alsof het nog niet erg genoeg was dat er twee soorten mensen in Nederland rondlopen, mensen met verblijfsstatus, voor wie de beginselen van de rechtstaat wel gelden en zogenaamde "illegalen" waarvoor dit niet langer het geval is, wordt de wet nu ook aangewend om de rechtzekerheid voor elke burger die in Nederland rondloopt af te schaffen. Door een gat in de wet kunnen Nederlanders en niet-Nederlanders met legale verblijfsstatus voor een simpele overtreding waar een boete van 50 euro op staat, tot maandenlang worden vastgezet.

Dit werd op 1 augustus, net 2 dagen eerder, nog aangeklaagd door rechtsgeleerden die de praktijken van, vooral politie Amsterdam en Utrecht, die zich daarin gesteund weten door het ministerie van justitie, bestempelen als "machtsmisbruik". Precies op de dag dat hierover kamervragen gesteld werden aan minister van Justitie Hirsch Ballin, werden weer twee activisten die zich op hun recht op anonimiteit beroepen, buiten het strafrecht om opgesloten.

Helemaal nieuw is dit fenomeen niet, het meest onrustbarende is het feit dat machsmisbruik in omvang en frequentie sterk lijkt toe te nemen sedert eind 2006.

Aotearoa, 05.08.2007 03:09

Police were called to Gateway Hotel in Mangere after officials from Unite union entered the premises on Saturday night. Unite discovered the hotel was illegally using replacement labour after union members had been locked out on August 3.

The Labour Department is closely monitoring the Gateway and has confirmed serious breaches at the hotel.

This hotel made headlines last year when a pregnant employee was refused ongoing employment. Her case is currently before the courts.

Unite is calling on people to join daily pickets outside the hotel from 4pm to 7pm all next week @ 206 Kirkbride Road, Mangere.

Radical Right Mounts Two Rival Anti-Marriage Drives

San Diego, 05.08.2007 00:08

Two rival radical-Right initiatives being proposed to ban legal recognition of same-sex marriages in California reveal a split in strategy and tactics within the anti-Queer, anti-marriage movement. The California Family Council, affiliated with Jim Dobson’s powerful Focus on the Family organization, is promoting a so-called “Protect Marriage” initiative that would simply write into the state constitution Proposition 22, passed by California voters 61 to 39 percent in 2000, which defined marriage in California exclusively as the union of one man and one woman.

Another group, called the Voters’ Right to Protect Marriage Initiative and headed by former California Assemblymember Larry Bowler, is going farther and pushing a ballot measure that would not only define marriage as one man and one woman but would also repeal California’s landmark domestic partnership legislation. Both groups are fighting for large-scale financial backing to pay signature gatherers to get their initiatives on the ballot.

The two rival initiatives are coming up in the middle of a process by which supporters of marriage equality for same-sex couples are pushing their demand in the legislature and the courts. In 2005, both houses of the California state legislature passed a marriage equality bill, but Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed it and said in his veto message that the final determination of whether California should legally recognize same-sex marriages should be made by the courts or by voters.--Read More--

Convergences for Climate Action Seek to Co-Create an Alternative to an Energy-Dependent World

United States, 04.08.2007 14:37

In just one week -- 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.

Workshops at the convergences range in topics from using art in organizing, to understanding environmental racism, to building water catchment systems. The list of the west coast Convergence's presenters include REDOIL (Resisting Environmental Destruction On Indigenous Lands), the Riot Folk Collective, Starhawk, and La Red Fronteriza de Salud y Ambiente (Border Health and Environment Network).

Fiji: Public sector strikes grow amid death threats and intimidation

Aotearoa, 03.08.2007 03:08

A week long strike by 1400 nurses in Fiji expanded on Thursday as 1000 teachers and 300 public works, water and sewerage workers also began strike action, demanding the reversal of a 5% pay cut and the changing of the retirement age from 60 to 55, and an additional 10% pay rise. The pay cut and change in retirement age were announced shortly after the military government took power in a coup last December. Earlier this week the military and police detained union leader Taniela Tabu, during which time they made deaths threats against him and demanded he pass on death threats to two other union leaders upon his release on Wednesday night. The teacher's strike began with a 1000 person sit-in at the teachers union headquarters, with songs, speeches and kava. Meanwhile, Fijian police went to schools and hospitals in an attempt to intimidate strikers. The Fijian government is still considering declaring the nurses strike illegal, in which case it would be able to fire all 1400 nurses for not attending work for 7 days. The strikes are continuing indefinitely.
