Ban the Billboard!

24 Hour Vigil to Rid St Werburghs of Billboards 24 hour vigil to rid St Werburghs of billboards Mac writes: The anti-billboard campaign in St Werburghs caught alight today with a 24 hour vigil mounted by activist Mark Boyle. Attention was well and truly focused on the 3 large Scrapstore-owned billboards by Ashley Hill roundabout. The campaign is to get these 3 eyesores torn down and create 'St Werburghs Green Gateway' with tree planting and a view of Ivy Church. Mark's vigil started at 7.00 am today, with a huge 'scrap the billboards' banner set up, copies of the 1000 signature petition and leaflets, displays and information to let people know what was going on. Many people didn't even realise that an environmental charity like the Children's Scrapstore could be making money from causing visual pollution in their adopted neighbourhood.

Olympia: Citizens Talk Back to Baird

Portland, 08.09.2007 13:38

After a brief visit to Iraq as part of a Congressional delegation that was wined and dined at the Ambassador's residence, [Representative Brian] Baird came home a convert: the surge was working and the occupation should continue. Immediate withdrawal, he stated, would result in "wholesale slaughter."
The reaction in Washington's 3rd district has been strong. Over 500 people stormed his Vancouver town meeting and 200 people were at Longview. They were articulate in their disagreement with Baird. Channeling Richard Nixon, Baird dismissed their concerns, stating he believes that there is a silent majority who supports his position and wants us to win in Iraq.

[Friday, September 7th] A small group of 40 citizens gathered in front of Rep. Baird's Olympia office to respond to his sudden conversion to supporting the war. Baird's office was expecting us. His staff greeted us with cookies and a desire to hear what we had to say. They cleared the parking lot so we could hold our rally. Several of the Veterans for Peace entered the office and began reading the names of the American soldiers killed in Iraq. The others remained outside to talk back to Baird. The speakers were videotaped and a copy will be sent to Baird. The Talk Back to Baird action will continue every Friday in September from noon-2 p.m.

Harrisburg, PA Anti-Immigration Rally A Huge Bust -- But At Least The Nazis Had A Good Time

DC, 08.09.2007 04:09

Well, we learned a few things at the Voice of the (Few) People (VOTP) rally in Harrisburg, PA. One, it doesn't take much effort on our part to turn an anti-immigration rally to an anti-DLJ rally! Two, that might be due to the fact that it also didn't take much effort on our part to make this particular group look like the racist nimrods they were with their more than obvious ass-kissing of the assorted Nazis that were there. Three, something is wrong with this group. After this weekend, we are convinced that VOTP is destined to become the comic relief of the entire anti-immigration campaign. If anyone associates with them or even takes them seriously, ya gotta wonder about them too. As it is, that feeling may be shared by a lot of folks because, thanks in no small part to us, this rally was decimated. There were supposed to be much, much more than the 150 that came out to this thing, and definitely more speakers. In the end, what was supposed to have been the largest anti-immigration rally in Pennsylvania history became the most laughable. And once again, VOTP founder Daniel Smeriglio hit us with a gem when he "called out" DLJ from the podium. Now first he runs away from DLJ at the Morristown rally when he questions him about racist activist John Clark's participation in the Harrisburg rally. Then he makes some claim that he is going to post our "founder's" (DLJ) criminal record on line, even though he doesn't have one, despite the claims by Bill White and Hal Turner to have obtained it, the only one's who ever have. Now Smeriglio is saying that DLJ called him a child molester? Dan, Dan Dan….where in all hell did you get this from? For the record, he was called nothing of the sort, at least not by anyone in OPP, but we guess when you are a wannabe politician and your big rally just got flushed down the toilet, you have to save face somehow. So why not lie about some accusation that was never made, eh? Oh, well. This is why we call them boneheads. Speaking of which, we cannot close without giving a special shout-out to our friends in Keystone State "Skinheads" and the assorted Nazi lot that turned out. They are claiming it was a good day for them, and they are absolutely right. It was - for them. We, however, had bigger fish to fry in VOTP and the bonehead crowd was simply the oil. VOTP could have simply distanced themselves from them, but one, the Nazis were the majority that came out for the anti-immigration crowd, and two, organizers made hatemongers a part of the rally in the first place! It was a good way to end the summer, but a good sign that the heat will be around well into the fall. We can hardly wait to see what comes next!

An Interview with NY Taxi Workers Alliance Leader Bhairavi Desai

NYC, 07.09.2007 21:38

New York taxi drivers have been speaking out for months against new city regulations that require all taxis to have new technology installed including credit card machines and global positioning systems that will track where the cabbies drive. Faced with an October 1 deadline to make the switchover, thousands of cabbies pulled their vehicles off the streets Wednesday and Thursday in the first citywide taxi strike in nine years. With the strike winding down on Thursday night, New York Taxi Workers Alliance Executive Director Bhairavi Desai spoke with NYC Indymedia about what was accomplished, how her group pulled off the strike and what they might be ready to do next. || < ahref=>Previous coverage in The Indypendent

Regime Gets Desperate; Mounted Park Police Bust Up Press Conference In Lafayette Square

DC, 07.09.2007 19:09

While the momentum for the Sept. 15 Peace/Impeachment demonstration grows, the Bush Administration is going to extraordinary lengths to suppress the mobilizing for this mass demonstration. Less than 18 hours ago, National Park Service Police turned a September 15 Press Conference, held in front of the White House, into a chaotic scene. On the pretext that there was no permit for a three foot long folding table that the media placed their microphones on, the police intervened in the middle of the press conference to announce that it was an unpermitted activity...

DIY V3 Wind Turbine Workshop

United Kingdom, 07.09.2007 06:09

V3 Power build small wind turbines and run courses teaching people how to make their own turbines. They put a couple up at various events, to inspire folks to get involved with such alternatives. The turbines they build are 'axial flux' turbines with a 2.4 metre blade in diameter and typically sit on top of a 10 metre guyed mast. They are mostly made from recycled materials

By running courses where people can learn how to build, install and maintain their own turbine they offer people and communities the chance to release themselves from reliance on the national grid while making a real difference to the climate change problem. So, get involved.

Locals Spur on National Fast, Urging Congress to Cancel the Debts of Impoverished Nations

Portland, 07.09.2007 03:09

September 6, 2007—Today marks the first of a 40-day fast led by retired campus minister and long-time social activist Rev. David Duncombe, of White Salmon, Washington. He will drink only water as he fasts and lobbies on Capitol Hill to win support for the Jubilee Act, a bill that would cancel the debts of 67 of the poorest countries and establish responsible lending practices for the future.

Last month, local organization Jubilee Oregon hosted Rev. Duncombe for a special send-off, in which local Portlanders agreed to fast in solidarity for one or more days. Local organizations endorsing the fast include: the Jubilee committee of Witness for Peace, St John the Baptist, Ainsworth United Church of Christ, the Interfaith Council and the Spiritual Life Center of Portland State University.

Governor Perry's statement in full: "After carefully considering the facts of this case, along with the recommendation from the Board of Pardons and Paroles, I believe the right and just decision is to commute Foster's sentence from the death penalty to life imprisonment. I am concerned about Texas law that allowed capital murder defendants to be tried simultaneously and it is an issue I think the Legislature should examine." Commented Lily Hughes of Campaign to End the Death Penalty: "Governor Perry once said that there was no hue and cry against the death penalty in Texas. Well, here was your hue and cry."

Two Years Post-Katrina: Racism and Criminal Justice in New Orleans

Austin, 07.09.2007 00:08

Two years after the devastation of New Orleans highlighted racism and inequality in the US, the disaster continues. New Orleans' health care and education systems are still in crisis. Thousands of units of public housing sit empty. Nearly half the city's population remains displaced. A report released this week by the Institute for Southern Studies reveals that, out of $116 billion in federal Katrina funds allocated, less than 30% has gone towards long-term rebuilding—and half of that 30% remains unspent.

Europaweites Nazitreffen in Jena

Germany, 06.09.2007 10:49

Für den 8. September soll zum zweiten Mal das europaweit beworbene Nazifestival "Fest der Völker" in Jena stattfinden. Mit dem Spektakel treibt die NPD die europäische Vernetzung faschistischer Parteien innerhalb der ENF voran. Neben internationalen Naziführern treten Bands aus dem verbotenen Blood & Honour-Netzwerk auf. Einigendes Band zwischen Freien Kameradschaften, faschistischen Parteien und radikalen Schlägerskins ist die Verherrlichung des 3.Reiches, antisemitische Verschwörungsphantasien und rassistische Hetze. Dass das Event ausgerechnet in Thüringen stattfindet ist kein Zufall: das Bundesland hat sich zum "braunen Herz Deutschlands" entwickelt. Ein Verbot zog die Stadt, trotz der offensichtlichen Fortführung der verbotenen B&H-Strukturen, nicht in Betracht. In Jena regt sich antifaschistischer Protest.

In Memoriam: Anti-War Vietnam Veteran and Labor Activist Bill Davis

Chicago, 06.09.2007 06:23

Bill Davis, Vietnam war veteran, longtime labor and anti-war activist and national coordinator of VVAW — Vietnam Veterans Against the War — has died. Davis was a key member for decades in VVAW, begun by military veterans in 1967 to oppose U.S. military intervention in Vietnam, U.S. imperialism more broadly, and to support the rights and needs of veterans. Davis also served as president of Auto Mechanics Union Local 701, which he first joined in 1977, until he retired several years ago, and represented Local 701 in the Chicago Federation of Labor.

Maori Revolutionary Syd Jackson Dies

Aotearoa, 06.09.2007 02:10

Syd Jackson, of Ngati Kahungunu and Ngati Porou, died on 3rd September aged 68. His tangi will be at Matahiwi Marae in Hastings late this week.

"Syd has lived his life with a totally unswerving commitment to revolution" said Mrs Turia of the Maori Party. He was involved with Ngā Tamatoa in the 1970s whose staunch advocacy for Brown Power laid the foundation for a dynamic period of Māori renaissance.

"Syd has made an enormous political impact on Aotearoa, particularly through his role in the union movement" said Pita Sharples of the Maori Party. "He had the keen intellect to grasp complex issues, a quality which you would see coming through in campaigns such as encouraging Libya to boycott trade with New Zealand, or protesting against APEC."
