Audiofile: Community Voices Opposing the LNG Pipeline and Terminal

Portland, 01.10.2007 14:38

This isn't just a problem for Astorians. The construction of the LNG pipeline and terminal could devastate an already fragile salmon habitat, increase air and water pollution, and displace people living near the terminal or along the proposed pipeline route.

Please listen, learn, and take action: there is no time to lose.

Uprising against Military Rule in Burma

Aotearoa, 01.10.2007 08:09

Over the past few weeks huge protests against the brutal ruling military junta have engulfed Burma (renamed Myanmar by the junta in 1989). Many are comparing these demonstrations to the huge uprising against military rule in 1988 that was brutally suppressed by the military, killing 3000 people. Huge crowds risked terrible repression to join protests by Buddhist monks in the capital city of Rangoon. In recent days the junta has launched a violent crackdown on the protests, arresting monks and shooting dead scores of demonstrators and a Japanese journalist. [ Protest timeline on Irawaddy - independent Burmese news site ] In Auckland hundreds of people rallied last Saturday in solidarity with the uprising in Burma. Prayers and a sit down on Customs Street was led by Burmese Buddhist monks to demand the NZ SuperFund stops investing taxpayer money in the French oil company, Total. [Report and pictures] Total has benefited from the use of slave labour to build oil and gas pipelines in Burma. The junta has used money received from the pipeline to buy MIG jet fighters from Russia. [ Totalitarian Oil – TOTAL Oil: Fuelling the oppression in Burma ] The New Zealand government is also currently negotiating a free trade agreement with the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), which includes Burma.

Worcester Immigrant Coalition Continues Sanctuary City Initiative

United States, 01.10.2007 04:07

The Worcester Immigrant Coalition is continuing community based organizing efforts to secure the passage of a Sanctuary City resolution in Worcester. The Coalition, which formed in March, 2006 has prioritized the Sanctuary City initiative as a way towards broadening the community discussion on the treatment of immigrants both locally and across the state.

Local organizing efforts continue to grow, recently the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA), which is supporting the resolution, hired a part-time Worcester based community organizer to additionally support immigrants' rights organizing in Worcester. Thanks to the support of the local Carpenters Union Worcester's MIRA organizers has office space at the Endicott St. union hall.

The Coalition asking individuals, churches, synagogues, community organizations and others to review the resolution and endorse the proposal. READ MORE ||| Download: English packet | Spanish packet ||| Earlier: Worcester Immigrant Coalition

Eric McDavid found guilty

Portland, 30.09.2007 14:38

After deliberating for 11 hours over two days, a federal court jury has found Eric McDavid guilty of conspiring to blow up government and other facilities as part of an eco-terror plot. The verdict came late Thursday afternoon following a trial that relied heavily on the testimony of an undercover FBI informant who was known to jurors only as "Anna" and who presented evidence of conversations McDavid and two companions had about blowing up the Nimbus Dam, a U.S. Forest Service facility in Placerville and other targets. coverage

Report Back and Photogs of September 29, 2007 Portland Rally and March

Portland, 30.09.2007 14:38

Today, September 29, 2007, in the streets of downtown Portland, citizens gathered to voice their outrage at the Occupation of Iraq and the slowly growing drum beat for war with Iran. For a city as anti war and anti Bush as Portland, today's event seemed moderate, one could almost say mediocre. There was a fair amount of people in attendance, perhaps 200-300 at the rally in the north Park blocks and easily over 700 or so as the march swelled to its conclusion in front of the World Trade Center.

Yet, Portland gathered 30,000 or more a few years ago, and that was before the enormous U.S. casualties and criminal slaughter of perhaps a million innocent Iraqi citizens. Not to mention the victims from earlier phases of this war under George Bush Sr. and the sanctions and bombardments under the Clinton administration. And too, not to mention the slow motion deaths, injuries and birth defects due to the use of radioactive weapons, deliberately mislabeled as "Depleted" Uranium.

According to the Defense Department's annual "Base Structure Report" for fiscal year 2003, which itemizes foreign and domestic U.S. military real estate, the Pentagon currently owns or rents 702 overseas bases in about 130 countries and has another 6,000 bases in the United States and its territories. As the bumper sticker says, " Be nice to America or we'll bring Democracy to your country."

Changes in the Mossos (catalan autonomy police) directorship

After the antecedents of the last demonstration to demand the right to freedom of speech and demonstration and to denounce the criminalization of social movements, several associations call again, and more than ever, for a demonstration to demand the right to demonstrate,a basic right that when it's in danger it affects one of the basic pillars of every society, the right to the legitimate protest, the right to the necessary answer against any kind of authority abuse, the right to dissent, to criticize and to propose alternatives and solutions which the authorities and administration deny and try to silence.

For just a couple of hours on the last Friday of each month, hundreds of cyclists informally ride together to claim the streets which are normally ruled by automobiles. The gathering is part celebration and part peaceful protest. The main message: we still have a choice to live our lives in a way that is more thoughtful of the world's resources, to live in a way that is more socially nurturing of life and health, and to live our lives with more joy. The ride on September 28th marked the spontaneous demonstration's 15th year.

September the 22ndDay without cars and for the Degrowth

Activities + Debate:from 10:30h to 18h at Pg Lluís Companys (arc de trionf)

Breaking news! The City Council censors the Day without cars and for de Degrowth

The price of oil raises excessively in a world which is going for cars more and more, for the huge urbanistic growth, for high speed trains, where there are more pollution, more energy wasting... In March more than half a thousand people went to the conferences "Undo the growth to rebuild the world" organized by the l'Entesa pel Decreixement (Agreement for the degrowth) to think about the society of the unlimited growth and consumers where we're immersed. Now, six months later, l'Entesa pel Decreixement organizes the , "Day without cars for the Degrowth" a Day that will have lectures, workshops, activities and artistic performances and that will end with a great march walking, in bicycle and other non-polluting devices with wheels. The final surprise party will be held in the street, at the end of the march and in another city location. Although the desire of celebrating this Day in the asphalt, the Barcelona City Council has put us in a corner, they say they don't like us. Once again they show their hypocrisy front citizen initiatives and we've have to take up the Pg. Lluís Companys. Pedalín (The little pedal) has been the one chosen to bring the new and to promote this day using a vídeo and a website pedalin.
