Media For Social Change

Portland, 26.08.2007 18:38

LINK TO VIDEO : This past summer, 13 college students have been sponsored by the newly launched Northwest Institute and have been addressing the issues of the environment, Iraq Veterans, and Homelessness just to name a few ? plus they have been learning about the new opportunities presented for the media by technologies like YouTube, The Internet, and blogs.

The event on Wednesday evening highlights and credits those students who are learning and applying "Media Activism" Their website is

I was interested in all these same topics and took it upon myself to come down and film their presentation. And I am glad I did.

There were books randomly placed on the tables and I filmed as many of the titles as possible - they all were on "The Media" and looked pretty interesting.

It is a great disappointment to have to write about the great short fallings of my congressmen of Washington state 3rd district. Unfortunately of late he requires a series of article that likely could comprise a book. This first essay is on the cowardice nature of congressmen Baird of the 3rd US congressional district of the state of Washington.

Yes cowardice. I am not sure I would be a man of greater measure, but I am not the congressmen. And of course if I were one I would hope not to be such a god damn lily livered son of a _itch that is a supporter if not a co- perpetrator the mass murder of Americans and Iraqis alike. His cowardice nature first appeared on TV.
Yes on TV. He was claiming the need to have a back-up US government in case the congress was attacked by terrorist. This occurred after one of those congressional evacuations during a fake terror attack. If anyone has a copy of that network news clip you can see the fear in his eyes. I think he really thinks there are terrorist. But it's unclear which he is more afraid of the ones in US uniforms or the peasants in Iraq.

She leads me

Portland, 26.08.2007 18:38

She leads me

The madness surrounds me.
Wild, crazed, violent
madmen, berserkers
of greed, power
and blood lust continue
their antediluvian creed
of slash, loot, rape and burn.

Taking my hand, She
leads carefully through
forgotten forests into the
highlands of an unfamiliar youth.
Here, underneath the gentle
music of dragonfly wings
lives the cool still waters of remembrance.

Temporary Victory for DR Congo Refugees

United Kingdom, 26.08.2007 17:08

A High Court judge has ordered the halt of all deportations to the Democratic Republic of Congo pending a 'country guidance' hearing for the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal in September. The news was a reason for much rejoicing among DRC communities across the country, both inside and outside detention. Campaigners said the Home Office has, once again, missed a chance to get rid of as many Congolese asylum seekers as possible before the guidance appeal is determined in their favour. However, sources said the Home Office are still going ahead with the charter flight, filling it with DRC nationals who have not claimed asylum.

A number of Congolese detainees had received 'removal directions' for the 30th August. Last February, 21 children and 17 adults were forcibly deported to DR Congo on a charter flight operated by XL.

Eight coordinated protests have been called by Congolese communities and the Congo Support Project for August 28th in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, London, Manchester, Middlesborough, Newcastle and Nottingham. Meanwhile, charter airline XL has threatened the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns (NCADC) with legal action after the latter published a message saying XL might be operating the 30th August deportation flight.

Sacco and Vanzetti--The Case that Will Not Die (Nor Should It)

United States, 25.08.2007 18:37

This year, 2007, is the 80th anniversary of Sacco and Vanzetti's execution. Those familiar with the radical movement know that at least once in every generation a political criminal case comes up that defines that era. One thinks of the Haymarket Martyrs in the 19th century, the Rosenburgs in the post-World War II Cold War period and today Mumia Abu-Jamal. In America after World War I when the Attorney General Palmer-driven ‘red scare’ brought the federal government’s vendetta against foreigners, immigrants and militant labor fighters to a white heat that generations case was probably the most famous of them all, Sacco and Vanzetti.

No Border Camp approaches Gatwick Airport

Germany, 25.08.2007 14:38

As the government started to build a new immigration prison (Brook House at Gatwick Airport, near Crawley, south of London), the No Border Camp is getting closer: Sept 19-24. Among the various actions announced, Saturday, the 22nd, will see a demonstration from Crawley to Tinsley House, the already existing immigration prison at Gatwick, next to the planned site of the new centre. There will be workshops both at the camp and at Goldsmith University the week before, to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Battle of Lewisham.

Opfer sind die Täter, meint die spanische Kirche

Germany, 25.08.2007 14:38

Das katholische Erzbistum von Valencia provoziert die Empörung der Opfer der Diktatur, denn man sie eine Basilica für die bauen, die an der Seite Francos standen und dabei das Leben verlorenn. Die 30.000 Opfer des Faschismus, die allein um Valencia noch immer in Massengräbern liegen, werden natürlich in dem geschichtsrevisionistischen Anliegen vergessen ( Die postfaschistische Volkspartei (PP), die sich von Diktatur und Putsch nie distanziert haben (, deren Verantwortliche Gründer der Partei und Ehrenmitglieder ( sind, will das Anliegen der Fundamentalisten mit 4000 Quadratmeter teuerstem Bauland unterstützen, das der Kirche umsonst für den Bau zur Verfügung gestellt werden soll. Ein Beispiel, dass die Aufarbeitung der Geschichte nicht voran kommt.

Climate Camp 07: un'altra fine del mondo è possibile

Switzerland, 25.08.2007 06:07

Tra il 14 e il 21 agosto attivisti ecologisti da tutto il mondo si sono incontrati al Climate Camp sorto vicino all'aeroporto internazionale londinese di Heathrow, sul luogo in cui verrà costruita una terza pista di atterraggio.
Oltre 4mila case rischiano di essere abbattute e le 10'000 persone che le abitano dovranno presto trovare una nuova sistemazione, l'inquinamento fonico ed ambientale nella zona aumenterà esponenzialmente.

Oltre alle proteste e alle numerose conferenze organizzate, il campo sul clima mira a essere un esempio di vita a basso impatto con docce calde alimentate da pannelli solari, un sistema di riciclaggio delle acque chiare, gabinetti a compost ed un indy-mediacenter funzionante ad energia eolica e solare.

La polizia e le autorità hanno cercato in tutti i modi di boicottare l'evento dispiegando migliaia di agenti di polizia e applicando in maniera brutale le recenti norme antiterrorismo (sono almeno 70 gli arrestati).
Ciò nonostante le proteste sono state massicce con blocchi, cortei, occupazioni, picchetti, azioni di solidarietà in tutta Europa. Le proteste sono culminate con 24 ore di azione diretta.

Movimiento en Itoitz. Movimiento por Itoitz.

Euskal Herria, 24.08.2007 19:09

Con Julio Villanueva ya son tres l@s solidari@s con Itoitzque pasan por la c�rcel por una acci�n directa y no violenta que llevaron a cabo en 1996 con el objetivo de evitar la construcci�n del pantano de Itoitz. Por cortar cables que transportaban hormig�n para construcci�n, fueron juzgados y sentenciados a 4 a�os y diez meses de prisi�n. Once a�os y un pantano despu�s, Julio fue detenido en Iru�a el 17 de agosto mientras renovaba el carn� de conducir.

De la misma manera, por una acci�n que consisti� en resistirse al desalojo para el derrumbe de las casas de los pueblos que fueron despu�s anegados por el pantano, otr@s solidari@s con Itoitz fueron juzgados el pasado 24 de julio. Se negaban a permitir el llenado del pantano mientras las autoridades navarras hac�an o�dos sordos a los informes que lo desaconsejaban.

En 2004 comenz� el llenado y la pr�ctica vuelve a echar por tierra el proyecto. Los movimientos s�smicos en Itoitz se suceden d�a s� y d�a tambi�n. Desde entonces se han producido m�s de 1.200 terremotos. Una media de 3 al d�a.

M�ltiples son tambi�n las irregularidades en torno a la construcci�n y uso del embalse. La �ltima conocida, el nuevo destino de las aguas del Irat�, que parece ser� la ciudad de Zaragoza.

Bridgepoint Capital (owners of Leeds airport) Offices in London Disrupted

United Kingdom, 24.08.2007 15:38

A group of 18 climate change campaigners from the Camp for Climate Action briefly occupied the offices of Bridgepoint Capital in Warwick Street in London on Monday morning. Bridgepoint Capital, a private equity firm, bought Leeds Bradford Airport in April and is pressing for further expansion.

A banner reading "Yorkshire's Flooding You Daft Pudding!" was unfurled and Yorkshire puddings handed out to management. A statement was also read out to management and the offices covered in stickers. The brief occupation lasted for 30 minutes before the campaigners left. There were no arrests and indeed there were no police in attendance at the action.

Resistir para Vivir: Interview with Don Benjamin of the AJR

Austin, 24.08.2007 15:08

Don Benjamín, member of the Association for Justice and Reconciliation, talks about surviving Guatemala’s genocide against the Maya and the current indigenous-led struggle to demand justice

In some respects, Don Benjamín is one of the lucky ones, a survivor.

As a 35-year-old indigenous peasant from Guatemala’s western highlands, he has pushed the limits of survival, beyond what many could ever imagine – outlasting a genocide aimed at him and other Maya civilians in the 1980s and 90s: a strategic, government-sponsored crusade that left him orphaned as a young teenager, fleeing into the mountainous backcountry, eluding army search squads and aerial bombardments.

Save Pegah Emambakhsh from British Prison and Iranian Lashes

United Kingdom, 24.08.2007 13:38

An international campaign to prevent the UK government deporting Pegah Emambakhsh to Iran, where she fears persecution, for being a lesbian, has succeeded in getting a delay until Tuesday 28 August 2007.

Pegah sought asylum in the UK in 2005, her claim failed despite appeals, and she was arrested in Sheffield on Monday 13th August and is being detained in Yarlswood detention centre.

Her case has been taken up by the Iranian Queer Organization, who have said: "If she is going to be returned to Iran, there is much of possibility that she, due to her sexual orientation and her past life in Iran, will be sentenced to death, or, in a most optimistic view, be prosecuted and tortured in some of the ways that are all common among Iran's religious officials when having made the decision to chastise the so called 'corrupted' citizens.".

The global anti-deportation campaign, which has included approaches to the British ambassador in Rome and the Deputy Consul General in San Francisco has resulted in her case getting coverage in the local media, the Iranian media and the gay press around the world. She now has excellent legal representation and support from Outrage!.

Westcoast Climate Convergence Builds Opposition to Dirty Energy

Portland, 24.08.2007 02:38

The Convergence was met with strong local support and important exchanges between those fighting fossil fuel development on local, regional and global scales. The Monday and Tuesday events helped draw more attention to continuing infrastructural commitments to destructive energy sources.

The Skamokawa event culminated with over 150 people participating in a direct action on Monday, occupying the proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) import facility at Bradwood, Oregon. The Columbia River divides Oregon and Washington, and participants in the Convergence learned about attempts to sustain the local economy of the Lower Columbia River while resisting massive fossil fuel developments in the area.

Using fishing boats, sailboats, kayaks, and an umiak, participants in the action crossed the Columbia River and occupied the beach at Bradwood where NorthernStar Natural Gas intends to construct a large LNG terminal. The terminal's peak daily capacity is twice the average daily use of Oregon natural gas consumers. The action had a twofold purpose, both highlighting local and global impacts of LNG development.

Speak out to prevent an ecological disaster from entering coastal Oregon's Coos Bay in the form of a supercooled liquified natural gas (LNG) terminal and pipeline with hundreds of miles of linear clearcuts across Oregon's mountains..

Since late 2004, multiple energy companies have proposed large, controversial liquefied natural gas (LNG) developments along the Lower Columbia River and in Coos Bay. Currently, five proposals exist in Oregon, each of them generating concern among people who live, work, and recreate in their vicinity. Here is a brief update on each of the five proposals:
