Blumenauer's Party--Lone Vet Report

Portland, 29.08.2007 01:38

When Representative Blumenauer arrived about 4:15 pm, he had to go past us and wait for the elevator. We sang our songs, (very much off key) and the protest was a success. The idea was to let him know that his campaigning in the coming months was going to be shadowed by protestors who want him to act boldly and not as a pawn of Polosi. I think he got the idea loud and clear.

Friends of Earl put on the event, fundraising seemed to be the goal, but they had much to think about after passing us with their heads down. The invited guests did not seem to care that other democrats were protesting their get-together. One of my favorite people wondered aloud why they did not smile or say something to encourage us as they went in to eat cake. I don't have an answer to that question but maybe because they do not know what it is to be a democrat?



Riding the Eclipse

San Diego, 29.08.2007 00:07

Last night I went on a bike ride during the eclipse. It was so awesome watching a spectacular natural event unfold over the paved, built, engineered, unnatural urban landscape.

Scientific study, precise calculations, news reports, photos, videos, animations, simulations and more have reduced mind-blowing phenomena such as eclipses to routine, scripted series of steps far less engaging than the latest video game. But last night, for me, the eclipse was much more than that.

More than 1,000 people carrying a range of signs gathered in Bellevue to tell Bush what they thought of him and his policies. They were also critical of the U.S. Representative who was the beneficiary of this $1,000 a plate, $10,000 per photo op with Bush fundraiser.

Tühoe: Te Ahikaa roa a Mihi ki te Kapua 2007/2008

Aotearoa, 28.08.2007 02:09

E nga mana, e nga reo, nei ra te karanga o Te mana Motuhake o Tühoe ki te whakanui i te tekau tau o te nohonga o Waikaremoana. Kua tekau tau te roa kua rongo ai a Waiwherowhero i nga reo o ana mokopuna. Kua tekau tau te roa i mura ai nga ahi ki te taha o nga wai kaukau o nga tipuna. no reira, anei ra te karanga. Nau mai, Hoki mai!

It has been ten years since the Waikaremoana land occupation. It has been ten years since the fires burnt on the shores of Waikaremoana. Ten years since the grandchildren of Waikaremoana made a stand against the continual alienation of their lands, forests and of course the lake. Te Mana Motuhake o Tühoe invite the freedom fighters who were part of the occupation to return, and also any comrade or organisation who want to celebrate and plan for our future campaign. Come and share victories, kai and korero with Tuhoe this New Years eve. [ Info ]

Venue: Waikaremoana, Te Waiwherowhero pa. (next to the campgrounds)

Tühoe, who didn't sign Te Tiriti o Waitangi, was invaded by colonial forces and had land confiscated in the 1800s. They are currently going through Waitangi Tribunal process and a report is expected this year. Here is a 10 minute documentary with interviews. Tamati Krueger says: "Our area [Tühoe] is different. There is no government law here. […] This is not an honourable settlement. It is underhanded. A small amount will receive most of the benefits. A large number will bear the cost. […] At the end of the day whakapapa matters more than money. So Tühoe need to focus on its whakapapa and its links to neighbouring iwi."

Protesters Oppose Statue of White Supremacist and Queerophobe in Downtown San Diego

San Diego, 27.08.2007 23:38

On Saturday afternoon, about three hundred protesters gathered in front of Horton Plaza to oppose the unveiling of a statue of Pete Wilson, white supremicist and queerophobic former mayor of San Diego, and California Senator and Governor. Wilson is notorious for championing Proposition 187 and for vetoing legislation to protect queers from job discrimination.

from Janice Jordan: On Saturday, activist communities from San Diego challenged the presence of Pete Wilson, a man of hate and a symbol of racism in downtown San Diego. Border Angels and Raza Rights, two of the organizing bodies for the demonstration of the installation of facism kept the crowd of 200-300 noisy and energized. --Read More--

comment from s t a r r: At the unveiling of his statue yesterday, former SD mayor/CA governor Pete Wilson called those opposed to the statue "thugs," "childish," and "horse's asses." He went on to state that whoever opposed the statue was in support of illegal immigration... [We] reject the statue of Pete Wilson because of the profits he and his wife have made off of exploiting prison labor and prison privatization. During his tenure as Governor, Pete Wilson's wife, Gayle, owned over half of the prisons in California. At the same time, Wilson got re-elected using a tough-on-crime Republican platform which resulted in the denial of parole for numerous women serving excessive sentences for defending themselves against domestic violence. It also landed tens of thousands of minor drug offenders behind bars, as he aided & abetted Ronald Reagan's so-called war on drugs. This was clearly a conflict of interest. One could picture Pete and Gayle in bed, chatting. Okay, honey, you buy the prisons, and I'll fill them up. --Read More-- (scroll down for comments)

comment from Rocky: ...Let them put up the bronze statue of Pete Wilson, if you must. The seagulls will know what to do with it.--Read More--

comment from Cecil: Statues suck anyway. Why waste time? let them put it up and then vandalize it. Put pink spray paint on his crotch or something. Really, have you ever seen a good statue? Even an Emma Goldman statue would be worthless. Let them waste their money on a statue of stupid Pete-- they want to honor him for building Horton Plaza for fuck's sake. --Read More--

United Kingdom, 27.08.2007 15:39

While the Camp for Climate Action (full Indymedia coverage) was going on next to Heathrow, campaigners have not been slacking in East Anglia. There have been protests at Norwich Airport and Stansted Airport, while it is has been reported that Cambridge Airport is seeing rapid growth in use by executive jets - over 3000 per year. And away from the airports, Friday started with a blockade of the Sizewell nuclear power station in Suffolk where a group of five people locked on in the entrance of Sizewell nuclear power station and unfurled a banner reading 'nuclear power is not the answer to climate chaos'

Many activists from Cambridge were at the camp, including some supergluing themselves to the Department for Transport, while others found themselves held as terrorists when they clearly weren't or photographed by police while using the toilet.

Thank you, Moe Fishman!

DC, 27.08.2007 06:10

As Bush shares with the nation his latest constructs concerning Freedom, World War Two, Democracy and the "Shintew Religion," it might be worthwhile to check in with a veteran who actually volunteered to lay his life on the line in defense of freedom, the late Lincoln Brigades veteran Moe Fishman. Fishman provides a necessary refresher on the actual legacy of World War II, and Bush's blatant violation of it.

People spoke about the case of Elvira Arellano, who, with her son Saul, has become a national symbol of the destruction of families by federal policy.



Activists Ask ACLU to Help End Sleeping Ban

Santa Cruz, CA, 27.08.2007 02:08

On August 26th, a number of Santa Cruz homeless activists made an appeal to the ACLU of Santa Cruz County during a fundraising event held at the small public aquarium next to the UC Long Marine center. They would like for them to contribute to the legal fight to end the ban on outdoor sleeping and camping, using the same process behind the Jones decision precedent in the Los Angeles courts, which held that a local city cannot ban sleeping on public property if adequate shelters for indigent people are not available. Santa Cruz currently has fewer than 100 shelter beds for a countywide homeless population which could number in the thousands. Read More and View Photos

Muchxs historiadorxs aún hoy estudian la relación entre la desaparición del árbol Garoé, y la de la civilización bimbache. Es frecuente en la mitología clásica la sacralización de los árboles, así como en la amazigh, primerxs pobladores de las "Islas Afortunadas" según los estudios de lxs principales investigadorxs.
Nada que ver con la actual presión de lxs piratas del cemento sobre los espacios protegidos y de los buitres que se benefician de los desastres que causan sus excesos.
Se repite la catástrofe social, ecológica y organizativa, el abandono de las víctimas, la desinformación de la población y las chapuzas en todas las instancias de todas las instituciones.

dependeremos del clima para salvar nuestra tierra,
nos obligarán a no luchar mientras perdemos todo lo que tenemos,
