Vulture Funds – The 'Perverse and Immoral' Face of Debt

Bristol, 28.09.2007 10:07

Monday 1st October 8pm at the Cube Cinema Bristol Indymedia Film Night: Vulture Funds – The 'Perverse and Immoral' Face of Debt. Monday 1st October 8pm at the Cube Cinema, Stokes Croft, Bristol. Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.) Five years ago, Gordon Brown told the United Nations that the vultures were perverse and immoral: We particularly condemn the perversity where vulture funds purchase debt at a reduced price and make a profit from suing the debtor country to recover the full amount owed, a morally outrageous outcome. Indymedia Film Night presents a documentary by Award winning investigative journalist Greg Palast looking at the practices of 'Vulture Fund' companies that buy up the debt of poor countries at cheap prices, and then demand payments much higher than the original amount of the debt, often taking poor countries to court when they cannot afford to repay. Greg reports on one company trying to collect $40 million from the government of Zambia after buying its debt for $4 million. The event is accompanied by a mixture of informative and humorous short films around the issue and a brief talk by third-world debt campaigners.Monday 1st October 8pm at the Cube Cinema, Stokes Croft, Bristol, Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.)

Oui au tram ! Non à l’autoroute ! Rassemblement le 1er octobre

Liege, 28.09.2007 10:07

Alors que la Région wallonne ne dispose que de budgets très limités, alors qu’on nous rabat les oreilles des difficultés économiques de la Wallonie et du « plan Marshall » qui est censé y apporter un remède, certains types de dépenses publiques ne semblent pas connaître beaucoup de limites. C’est en particulier le cas de la construction d’autoroutes. Malgré les déclarations pro-environnementales de ses responsables, la politique régionale en matière de mobilité continue d’être très majoritairement orientée vers la voiture. La contradiction est évidente dans le chef de mandataires publics qui signent un « pacte écologique » qui prévoit notamment un moratoire sur la construction de nouvelles infrastructures routières,... mais (re)lancent par ailleurs de nouveaux projets d’autoroutes.

On September 27th, the jury in the case of United States vs. Eric McDavid returned a verdict of "guilty." Eric faces five to twenty years in federal prison.

DEA Targets East Bay Supplier of Edible Medical Cannabis Products

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.09.2007 07:38

On September 26th, the DEA raided five locations that it claimed were connected to Tainted, Inc., which is a supplier of medical cannabis "edibles" that can be found in dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries in California. Heavily armed federal agents seized cannabis plants and medicinal edibles, arrested three people and killed at least one employee's dog. Edible cannabis products provide an alternative to smoking cannabis and are preferred by many patients. The products made by Tainted, Inc. are available only through medical cannabis dispensaries and carry prominent warning labels.

Widerstand gegen Lausitzer Braunkohletagebau

Germany, 27.09.2007 14:38

 Seit dem 17. September besetzen mehrere dutzend UmweltaktivistInnen Teile einer bedrohten Teichlandschaft im brandenburgischen Lacoma. Seit geraumer Zeit entsteht östlich und nördlich von Cottbus eine Wüste. Der ultraintensive Braunkohletageabbau, allen voran gefördert durch die Vattenfall AG, hat nicht nur die Zerstörung etlicher Dörfer oder die Trockenlegung einer einmaligen Wald- und Seenlandschaft zur Folge. Hier wird Braunkohle als wirtschaftliches Nonplusultra vermittelt: Es gibt keine Alternativen. Noch wird die Förderung fast nicht in Frage gestellt, trotz einer zunehmend hitzigen Debatte um die Rolle der Industrie im Klimawandel.

VIDEO FILE: Impeachment is put &quot;on the Town Hall table&quot; by citizens

Portland, 27.09.2007 13:38

At the Town Hall Meeting with House representative Earl Blumenauer in Portland. On 9/23/07 the subject of Impeachment was continuously brought up at this meeting.

One of the last speakers to speak was Bonnie Tinker who is a reporter for the Portland Alliance and one of the "Seriously Pissed Off Grannies" She eloquently gets those in favor of Impeachment to stand up and then as in the spirit of Peter Pan's "Tinker Bell" she asked all those to clap if you "Believed in Impeachment"

The Town Hall Meeting participants in the theater were up out of their seats, clapping and chanting feverishly. It is obviously what the people want, and it was obviously that Earl was not interested.

Federal Judge Rules Provision Of Patriot Act Unconstitutional

Portland, 27.09.2007 13:38

A federal judge in Oregon ruled Wednesday that a key provision of the USA Patriot Act is unconstitutional. Judge Ann Aiken found that it allows search warrants to be issued without probable cause. Police arrested Portland attorney, Brandon Mayfield, in 2004 after one of his fingerprints was mistakenly linked to the Madrid train bombings.

The FBI released him after two weeks and apologized. But Mayfield challenged the provision in the Patriot Act that made it easy for the FBI to define him as an "agent of a foreign power" and search his home without probable cause. His attorney, Elden Rosenthal, says this new ruling protects bedrock law.

Elden Rosenthal: "The right of every American to know that the FBI and the Justice Department cannot sneak into your home or office, copy your computer files, photograph your home and your personal documents, unless there is probable cause that a crime has been committed, that right is fundamental to what we understand America is all about." The Justice Department is expected to appeal the ruling.

Heavily Armed PPB Terrorizes Students at PSU, similar to Watershed incident

Portland, 27.09.2007 13:38

PPB is out of control, storms PSU campus with assault rifles and frightens students. Note the similarities between this and the Watershed incident of earlier this week. If anyone doubted (as I did for a time) that Portland Police are out of control, these stories should help convince you. First the facts/news story, then the first-person account.
Here is the link to the story on the Watershed incident so we can see the developing pattern in our fair city. How can we let this go on? What can we do to stop this?

The government has finally given up on communists.Now they're after the environmentalists.

The Red Scare of the 50s is turning into the Green Scare of today. Don't let Bush, Inc. snatch away your rights, make you point a finger, lock you up, or label you a terrorist. The Northwest has been at the center of both incredible progressive activism and government repression, especially over the last decade.

Come listen to how history is repeating itself and what we can do to fight it! McCarthy-era Lessons for Bush's America: From Communists to Environmentalists

The Northwest Constitutional Rights Center and the Civil Liberties Defense Center, along with the National Lawyers Guild Portland Chapter, are co-sponsoring a provocative civil liberties forum featuring Robert Meeropol, son of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who were wrongfully executed in 1953 for conspiring to steal the secret of the atomic bomb.

D.C. Teens and Gun Violence: Going to the Go-Go

DC, 27.09.2007 01:09

Across the country, critics of violent music lyrics continue to link those lyrics with violence in the streets. And D.C. is no different. Except for the past 30 years instead of Hip-Hop or Hard Rock taking the heat, in D.C., it’s go-go. Radio Rootz Reporter, Terrell Carr gives us a look behind the D.C. music scene of Go-Go. Note to Listener: This piece is part of a longer documentary on gun violence produced by Washington, D.C. and Maryland High Schoolers. These teens went through a media literacy and production internship over the summer called Radio Rootz.

She writes a regular column for The Nation magazine and London Guardian that's syndicated internationally by the New York Times Syndicate that gives people worldwide access to her work but not its own readers at home. In 2004, she and her husband and co-producer Avi Lewis released their first feature documentary - "The Take." It covered the explosion of activism in the wake of Argentina's 2001 economic crisis. People responded with neighborhood assemblies, barter clubs, mass movements of the unemployed and workers taking over bankrupt companies and reopening them under their own management.

Report from Anti-war Demonstration and Die-in at the Capital

New Hampshire, 26.09.2007 14:39

by Jamilla El-Shafei, The Kennebunks PEACE Department On September 15th I rode to DC with Melida whose son Alex was killed in Iraq three years ago on September 25TH. It was my intent to participate in the mass DIE-IN organized by the IVAW and ANSWER in remembrance of Alex. It was a amazing event and I believe a pivotal one for the peace movement as we going from protesting to resistance. I was not anticipating such a large crowd so I was pleasantly surprised when bus after bus of young people poured into the Capital in support of the action. The crowd numbered more than 100,00 and I was thrilled to see that for the first time since the beginning of the Iraq war that the youth out numbered the "gray heads" by a huge margin! The event was very well organized in every aspect from the rally to march logistics to the massive civil disobedience and CD support. I credit the event's success on the collaboration of the IVAW with the ANSWER Coalition. The atmosphere was electrified by the large participation of Iraq Veterans (who numbered more than a couple of hundred) and the energy of the students. When people were assembling for the march and the Iraq Veterans came through the crowd to the front of the march they were greeted like "rock stars" and the crowd went crazy! It was a powerful moment!
