Editorial Cartoon: &quot;Human Energy&quot;

DC, 09.10.2007 15:09

So, as usual, I'm waking up one morning last week to find that my wife already has the morning news on. It's CNN's "American Morning", just wrapping up a piece on the rebellion in Burma, and following it with one of those obnoxious, cloying Chevron Oil "human energy" ads and, though way too early, my foggy brain starts going "Burma… Chevron… Burma… Chevron…" …and, as usual, a train wreck of dissonant ideas in my early-morning REM state causes inspiration… Burma: Business As Usual For Big Oil, at priceofoil.org

Weapons Conference Delagates Cannot Escape Resistance!

Aotearoa, 09.10.2007 07:09

New Zealand's annual weapons conference opened this morning at the Duxton Hotel in Wellington. Despite the NZDIA trying to keep all details of the location secret, delegates of the annual New Zealand Defence Industry 'Weapons Conference' were met by resistance when they arrived at the Duxton Hotel this morning. For the last several years, the conference had been held at Te Papa, but steadily growing public opposition to the arms dealers culminated in the complete shutdown of the museum during the 2006 conference. This year the warmongers have been forced to retreat entirely to the Duxton, previously used only for their Wednesday evening awards dinners. Sponsors of last year's conference included L3 Communications - the sixth largest defense company in the United States, providing survelliance equipment and aircraft maintenance; Serco, a company involved in nuclear weapons; Safe Air Ltd, who've worked on Indonesian war planes; and KBR, the former Halliburton subsidiary which provides logistical support to the US army in Iraq. Peace Action Wellington is calling on everyone who opposes the warmongers to come to the Duxton Hotel on Wakefield St at 6pm on Wednesday, to tell them they're not welcome in our city. Wherever the warmongers go, the people will follow!

&quot;Wonderful Copenhagen&quot;

United Kingdom, 08.10.2007 23:38

Six months ago, the 25-year old Ungdomshuset (Youth House) occupied social center in Copenhagen, Denmark was evicted by police so that it could be handed over to the new owners, a Christian fundamentalist religious sect. This led to three days and nights of rioting in the city, with observers calling it the most serious internal security disturbance in Denmark since the end of the Second World War. 750 demonstrators were arrested.

This past weekend saw dramatic street actions in Copenhagen, as activists attempted to squat a replacement social centre named "G13." On Saturday 6th, between 3,000 - 10,000 people took part in a co-ordinated day of non-violent confrontation, which was met with heavy police repression. A total of 436 arrests resulted according to Danish mainstream media - a new record for a single police operation. Later in the evening, the G13 press group issued a statement declaring an end to the day's action. Demonstrators made it through police lines into the G13 site, but were cleared from the building by police after several hours of occupation. Despite this, many in the Danish scene believe the day was a success. As one participant said:

Last summer we couldn't do anything as a movement. Whatever we did we couldn't do it together and the police and the media hated us. Then last fall we learned to throw rocks. The movement rediscovered militant tactics. Then for half a year since the eviction that tactic has played out its usefulness. So now, we've developed a new tactic [non-violent confrontation]. As a movement we are now able to do anything.

Although they remain highly suspicious of city council, G13 representatives will negotiate with mayor Ritt Bjerregaard on Thursday.

Stop Eugene, Oregon Nike Landbank

Portland, 08.10.2007 20:38

Stop Nike Landbank: Nike eminent domain efforts may face a recall election in Eugene. Alan Zelenka's advocacy in favor of eminent domain for Dave Frohnmayer's proposed expansion of campus and replacement of Mac Court is having an increasingly detrimental effect on the Fairmount neighborhood.

Councilor Zelenka's willingness to publicly support the massive, yet-to-be-determined UO expansion and land acquisition scheme warrants a recall effort. The UO has not disclosed the scope of their eminent domain intentions and future development plans, leaving citizens no choice but to gather signatures leading to a recall election of Alan Zelenka. Eminent domain abuse has run rampant across the country, and it should not be abused in Eugene.

Citizens who would like more information about the upcoming effort to recall Councilor Zelenka can email ericeiden(at)yahoo.com or call 541-868-5122.



Lt. Watada &quot;&quot; UPDATE&quot;&quot; the 10/9 Trial is on &quot;&quot; HOLD &quot;&quot;

Portland, 08.10.2007 20:38

A federal judge in Tacoma has delayed the court-martial of 1st Lt. Ehren Watada, a Fort Lewis Army officer to refuse to deploy to Iraq.

In a rare intervention of a civilian court in the military justice system, U.S. District Court Judge Benjamin H. Settle granted the emergency stay (PDF) shortly before close of business Friday. Watada's trial, slated to begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday, is now postponed until at least Oct. 26, the judge ruled. In granting the stay at 4:48 p.m., Settle determined that he has jurisdiction under federal law to grant the stay and that Watada's claim that a second-trial amounts to double jeopardy is not frivolous and "has merit" for consideration.

Peter Young Report Back

Portland, 08.10.2007 20:38

Peter Young and Will Potter spoke at the Clinton St Theater on Thursday night. They talked about the struggle for the rights of animals, and the oppression against those of us who care about that struggle. This oppression is being orchestrated by both corporate and government officials (who are, increasingly, almost one and the same).
Both Potter and Young discussed the campaign of terror that corporate/govt forces are using against people who care about the non-human beings who share this planet with us. Potter pointed out that the recent green scare oppression has had no impact whatsoever on underground activists. He illustrated this point with an anecdote about animal activists liberating a group of rabbits, the day after the SHAC trials. They named six of the rabbits Josh, Lauren, Kevin, Darius, Jake, and Andy, after the SHAC defendants, and issued the following statement:

"This liberation is dedicated to the SHAC-7 and was done in direct response to the government's assault on them. Not a single member of the judge, jury and prosecution have the compassion, the conviction, or the courage of any of those six individuals, and they never will. In this sick culture, we know that every day the sick, the stupid, and the evil bully and destroy those who are far their better. Every lab, farm and fur animal, every poisoned wild bird, every beaten child, every raped woman knows this. The case of the SHAC-7 is no different.



Masssive Direct Action in Copenhagen/Denmark underway

Portland, 08.10.2007 20:38

We are going to move into our new house on Grøndalsvænge allé 13, the 6th of October. We´re not hiding that, for this action, we are, amongst others, inspired by this summers succesful protests at the G8 summit in Rostock, Gremany.

Here Tens of thousands of demonstrators succeded in blocking the roads to the summit area. Already two years before, activists declared how, where and when they wanted to block the summit. This way, tens of thousands of demonstrators managed to get through the police lines. "We have learned that preparation pays off" states Astrid from g13`s press group.

Our outspokenness surprices a lot of people. The police declares to Politiken (major newspaper) on the 13th of Aug. that they hold that we are bluffing. "usually they are not that nice", states Flemming Steen Munk, spokesman for the police. Unfortunately we are going to disappoint him. When we are open about our plans of action, its not to be nice, but a strategic choice. "It will make it harder for the police and politicians to criminalise our struggle for a new ungdomshus(youthhouse)" states Astrid from G13`s press group.

G13 has been proclaimed as the culmination of the movements autumn offensive, and already now 500 activists are involved in the preparations.

Blackwater havoc, from Iraq to New Orleans to Portland??

Portland, 08.10.2007 20:38

Portland needs full assurance from local and State politicians that Blackwater, or another "security" contractor, is not scheduled to be in Portland during the Top Off / Vigilant Shield terror drill. That company is a destructive force the Neocons and Far Right are relying on to orchestrate the level of chaos that can thwart effective, practical response to repression, violence, and subterfuge.

Please read the article below, taken from today's antiwar.com front page, and think how screwed Portland would be if these lunatics just happened to have been hired for augmented security purposes, during the "largest-ever terrorism drill/exercise". Per reports from the drill press conference the other day, Michael Chertoff is supposed to be in town for the exercise in terror?! Given that he probably perceives US citizens to be the enemy, perhaps he'll have a Blackwater contingent for his security...

First Open Rescue of battery hens in Christchurch

Aotearoa, 08.10.2007 05:09

The Christchurch Open Rescue collective has rescued 37 young hens from a Canterbury battery farm, saving them from living a life of misery in battery cages. The group is part of the wider Open Rescue network across New Zealand, which has rescued battery hens and documented the plight of factory farmed pigs and broiler chickens since beginning in 2006. Open Rescue members openly break the law to rescue animals from exploitation, and document the horrific conditions they live in. "These hens were destined to become some of the 2.8 million hens exploited in battery farms in New Zealand. Instead, we have given them the gift of a normal life, which they have welcomed with open arms in the days since they were rescued" said Christchurch Open Rescue member Tracey Brown. "The chickens are now having dirt baths, eating fresh greenery and will soon be laying eggs for the first time, free from the battery farm conditions where they struggled to even have enough space to turn around" said Rebecca McCready, another Christchurch Open Rescue member, "In the sheds we took them from, we witnessed half-metre high piles of faeces and feathers left uncleaned, and an apparent complete lack of access to water."

Hackelarre: Hackmeeting #2007 en Gernika

Euskal Herria, 07.10.2007 20:38

12, 13 y 14 de octubre: sincronizaci�n de conocimientos; feedback de experiencias; conectando mentes inquietas; creando archivo... As� se presenta esta nueva edici�n de los encuentros estatales de activismo, que esta vez, se realizar� la antigua f�brica de armas de Gernika, Astra, convertida ahora en gaztetxe (CSOA Astra Gernikeko Gaztetxea).

Como bien explican en la web del encuentro Hackelarre 2007, el hackmeeting es un encuentro libre y autogestionado que gira en torno a las nuevas tecnolog�as, sus implicaciones sociales, la libre circulaci�n de saberes y t�cnicas, la privacidad, la creaci�n colectiva, el conflicto telem�tico y mucho m�s. Este evento se caracteriza adem�s por no hacer distinci�n entre organizadores y asistentes. Son encuentros autorganizados donde socializar el conocimiento e intercambiar experiencias de todo tipo. NO es una party; NO hay organizadores ni invitados, est� abierto a quien quiera participar, es din�mico por definici�n.

Como viene siendo habitual en este tipo de encuentros, la propia web, concebida como wiki, se ha convertido en la forma de apuntarse, de proponer y gestionar los talleres, conferencias, mesas redondas u otras actividades. Todo ello desde la base de la filosof�a del software libre y la libre circulaci�n del conocimiento. Tambi�n la defensa de los ciberderechos, la creatividad o la implicaci�n de la tecnolog�a en los movimientos sociales tienen un lugar relevante en este tipo de reuniones.

Indymedia aprovechar� tambi�n este encuentro para juntar a diversas gentes que se acercar�n al hackmeeting y que colaboran en los diferentes proyectos que Indymedia tiene en el estado, para compartir un rato y hablar de las cosas que nos preocupan de Indymedia.

Manifestation contre l'UDC et sa politique raciste, Berne

Switzerland, 07.10.2007 06:07

Le samedi 6 octobre, l'UDC, dans la cadre de sa campagne électorale raciste voulait défiler à Berne jusqu'à la Place Fédérale. De son côté, le comité "Die schwarze Schaf" a appelé à une contre-manifestation et à des concerts sur la Münsterplatz. D'autre part, différentes organisation avait appelé à des action directes contre la manifestation de l'UDC.

Sur la Münsterplatz a eu lieu de 12h à 18h30 env. une très belle fête contre le racisme. Différentes interventions ont eu lieu entre les concerts. A ce sujet, la page internet "Die schwarze Schaf" recèle davantage d'informations.
Entre temps, différentes actions militantes ont eu lieu contre le défilé de l'UDC. Le concept s'est avéré extrêmement réussi, puisque le défilé de l'UDC n'a pas réussi, et que ces militantEs ont rebrousser chemin à quelques centaines de mètres de leur lieu de départ. Ke rapport que font les médias de cet après-midi correspond exactement à la version de l'UDC et non pas à la réalité observée sur le terrain.
Grâce aux action multiples dans toute la ville, l'UDC ne pouvait s'octroyer qu'une conclusion en huis-clos autour de la fosse aux ours, alors même que sa grande fête sur la place fédérale a été annulée, de force. Les pleurs de l'UDC quant à leur liberté d'opinion perdue ont bien été répercuté dans les médias, alors même que ce parti avait montré à plusieurs reprises dans le cadre de sa campagne électorale raciste, quel type de politique l'UDC promeut.
Finalement, nous pouvons évaluer toutes les actions (par ex., de Zurich à Berne) qui se sont déroulées à travers toute la Suisse comme un succès.

Robert Norse writes, "Vice-Mayor Ryan Coonerty's latest attack on the Constitution is a new local law. It will expand a bad law passed last year to ban lingering in a city parking garage. Coonerty's expansion will ban all those not parking a car or auto from all downtown city parking garages and now all downtown city parking lots. It will be coming to City Council for a first reading on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 9th. No more Food Not Bombs or Drum Circles on Wednesday. Cars, yes. Human interaction, no."



“Hammerskin Nation” Neo-Nazi Gathering Location Revealed

Portland, 07.10.2007 02:38

Portland, Oregon - The location of a white supremacist event in the greater Portland area has been determined by anti-racists. The Hammerskin Nation, a neo-Nazi skinhead organization, is using the Sherwood Elks Lodge, located at 22770 SW Elwert Rd. in Sherwood, OR, for its twentieth-anniversary celebration, ending tomorrow, Sunday, October 7. The "Hammerfest" racist event has been planned in conjunction with Volksfront, a Portland-led white supremacist group linked to two of the killers of Ethiopian immigrant Mulugeta Seraw in 1988.

The Ad-Hoc Committee Against Racism and Fascism urges all concerned groups and individuals to call Ken, the Elks Club booking agent, at (503) 625-5977, urging him to cancel the event. Denying white supremacists this venue is simply the right thing to do, although Ken seems to feel that the event is "just a bunch of guys playing music." (Quote is proximate.)
