Protestors Gather to Declare: Protest Is Not TERRORISM!

Boston, 11.10.2007 21:08

On Saturday afternoon, October 6, 2007, under a brilliant sky, fifty activists converged on the plaza in Maverick Square in East Boston, Massachusetts to sound the alarm about events in El Salvador. Led by CISPES and joined by the Cambridge-El Salvador Sister City Project and Centro Presente, the rally was called to bring attention to the arrests of 13 people in Suchitoto for simply speaking out against the government’s water privatization policy. Speakers throughout the afternoon outlined the new anti-terror law under which the thirteen were charged with acts of terror and face up to 50 years in jail for being at or near a lawful protest.

Portway Park &amp; Ride Expansion Criticised

Bristol, 11.10.2007 09:07

Park and Ride be expanded from a 320 to 820 parking spaces - but is it worth it? Park and Ride be expanded from a 320 to 820 parking spaces - but is it worth it? Kathryn Courtney-O'Neil writes: Bristol City Council are proposing that the Portway Park and Ride be expanded from a 320 car parking space site to an 820 parking space site. This would add a further 500 spaces to an already underperforming Park and Ride site that they admit "is not used to capacity" and "fallen below our expectations and has been slow, but there has been an 8% increase in usage in the past year". This is five and a half years since it originally opened in April 2002. But I forget. Government grants are being thrown at this and similar projects so why should we care anyway. It's not our money or is it?! ...The Council want to add a further 500 car parking spaces "to coincide with the opening of Cabot Circus and be ready for other future projects". However the traffic flow continues the same in both directions throughout the day, to and from Avonmouth Industrial Estate which is heavily used due to no public transport availability and of course being docks, warehousing, industrial and other business in the area....So what if the Portway Park and Ride expansion went ahead? Say if the research they were given was incorrect, the Government grants run out, the Park and Ride again falls below expectation and there is no money in the kitty to keep it running what then? Does it go bust and the site is closed leaving people that use the service high and dry? Do they try and get someone else to take it over? Do they go cap in hand to the Council and ask the city (that's all Bristolians many of which won't be using the service for obvious reasons, for example live no where near the area) for a hand out to keep it running because it expanded beyond the demand of the service. And is it fair on the Park and Rides that are self supporting? How long would that continue? And you know the people who lose out? It's the people who are currently using the service. Why should they suffer? They didn't do the market research, were unlikely to be included in the current research that Bristol City Council have used so far in the leaflet, and were not responsible for the purse strings either....Full article.| Portway Park and Ride (Bristol) should not be allowed to expand. | | Portway Park & Ride Discussion Group | Other Transport News: Camp Hope: Taking Action to Stop Airport Expansion in Gloucestershire | Councillors and passengers say 'Get well soon First' | Chooseday: Tuesdays Without Cars-- Launch Coming Up! |Contribute An Article | How To Contribute Articles - A Brief Guide | Add To The Calendar

We're not even free to not willing to be subjects?

They're already 12 the people who have passed by the 'Audiència Nacional (National High Court) for burning a photo of the spanish monarchs and, still today, the ancient and rancid repression seems to not get exhausted. The mobilizations spread everywhere as well as do the people showing their support and the self-accusations to show that the defense of the crown, today, is a ridiculous, rancid and coward fact, loyal to the oppressive fascism to people. Those who cry out for freedom and real justice receive with joy this exercise of emancipation and collective solidarity.
After all what's going on it's time to proclaim we don't want to be subjects any longer nor do we want to celebrate this Hispanidad Day.

16 years fighting the Caufec Plan - Porta bcn (Barcelona's door)

Sat. oct. the 6th at 17h, Esplugues: Clown Army is back

After 16 years slowing down a town-planning megaproject that wants to lay the foundations of the Collserola's slope at Esplugues de Llobregat, the works have finally begun The fight against the Caufec plan has became popular resistance icon against property speculation, against corruption, against institutional arrogance and the exhaustion of social movements in several fronts. In the last years and to explain the conflict, it have been organized dozens of actions, activities and addresses in all the Catalan Country territories, and it has been also a contribution to dynamize solidarity and action networks with other collectives which are defending the territory and against speculation taking advantage of events like the real-state fair Barcelona Meeting Point and campaigns like 'Està tot Fatal' (everything is awful).

Demonstration for the right to a home

After several mobilizations to reclaim the right to have a house, it can be stated that the government has no politic will to make it effective nor to face the plot of property and financial interests whose are getting richer and richer with the speculation of this basic human need. Elections are close and the government starts to spread continuous promises that won't solve the problem since they didn't face the structural reforms needed to take the houses out to the market.

Oregon LNG: &quot;Sell it to us, lease it to us or lose it to us&quot;

Portland, 10.10.2007 17:38

Property taking by Government to the benefit of Private Industry?
Best wake up "Uplanders" it's headed your way!

Oregon LNG: "Sell it to us, lease it to us or lose it to us"...That was the choice Roger Thompson was faced with regarding his family's 132 year ownership of their property in Clatskanie and which just happend to be in the path of Spiro Vassilopoulos's(sp?) proposed "Port Westward LNG Transfer/Storage facility and ironically, in full support and abetted by "The Port of St. Helens".

Fate, Kharma, Destiny intervened in favor of the Thompsn's on that when PWLNG could not muster investors. Now, with Oregon LNG and its V.P., former employee of now defunct and broke Calpine Energy Group and ex-Enron Clone, Peter Hansen at the helm a bunch of property owners could quite possibly be besieged with likely the same choices and arm twisting, once again abetted by Government as well to the benefi of this one "Private Corporation" bent on selling Natural Gas to California?

California's Lt. Governor, in a recent speech and I'm paraphrasing, said "California doesn't need to worry about extensive LNG development and speculation because we will get all the, LNG derived, Natural Gas we need from Oregon".

Worcester City Council Resolution Moves to Divest from Sudan War Profiteers

United States, 10.10.2007 14:37

City Councilors Mike Perotto, Joff Smith, Phl Palmieri, Rick Rushton, have stepped out in front recommending that Worcester divest retirement funds from businesses working in the Sudan. The move caught many by surprise given the City Council’s repeated rebuffs in recent years of justice and anti-war issues Worcester residents sought to discuss.

Additionally, the amendment has highlighted other major investments by the City in corporations such as Exxon and Chevron which are already targets of boycotts because of war profiteering and their never-ending assault on the planet.

Worcester Peace Works made an immediate note of the prominent shift in course and is the first local group seeking to hold City Councilors accountable by re-submitting a resolution against the Iraq War. Read more>> | Worcester Peace Works letter to City Council

Ja són 12 les persones que han passat per l'Audiència Nacional per la crema de la fotografia de la monarquia espanyola i, encara avui, la repressió rància i envellida sembla que no s'esgota. Les mobilitzazions arreu es multipliquen de la mateixa manera que ho fan les mostres de suport i autoinculpacions per demostrar que la defensa de la corona, avui, és un fet ridícul, ranci, cobard i fidel al feixisme opressor de pobles i de persones. Els qui clamen per la llibertat i la justícia real acullen amb joia aquest exercici d'emancipació i solidaritat col.lectiva.

Prayer Vigil for Homeless Hate Crime Victim

NYC, 09.10.2007 16:38

Dear Friends and Family,

On Friday, a homeless man named Felix Najera who was sleeping on the sidewalk on 103rd St. between Park and Lexington in East Harlem was set on fire and suffered burns over 78% of his body in the latest local example of a disturbing nationwide trend of brutal hate crimes against people who are homeless.

Please see below for a press release issued jointly by the office of East Harlem City Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito and Picture the Homeless. In addition, we hope you will join us this Friday night, October 12, starting at 6pm, as we hold an all-night vigil in East Harlem - to pray for Felix, to vow that all life be respected, and to commit to ending the misguided policies that contribute to and exacerbate homelessness.

Thank you,

Leaders and Staff
