Peace And Unity! In Our Community!

United Kingdom, 14.10.2007 18:08

Over 300 people came together in Nottingham today to voice their opposition against the city's gun crime and gang culture problems. The families of victims of violent crimes, such as the killing of Nathan Williams in the Meadows last year (read article) came together to call for 'Peace And Unity' and to put an 'End To The Killings'. A march started at the Forest Recreation Ground around midday and made its way to the city centre along Mansfield Road. The march was very loud and cheerful and attracted a lot of attention.

On arrival in the centre there was a rally in the Market Square, with talks and speeches by members of families that have been affected by violent crime as well as some of the organisers. Speakers included Paula Platt, who lost her 14 year old daughter Danielle in 2004 as she walked through the St Anns area after the Goose Fair in October 2004. Sarah Wallace, who lost her 20 year old son Daniel over a year ago in a stabbing in Radford, any so many others ..... The list of grieving parents is just too long. Added urgency to the proceeding, since there was yet another shooting in the St Anns area just this last thursday. As the crowds had gathered, silence was observed with thoughts of those, so affected.

UAW-QUAD Minority Report on the Tentative Contract Agreement

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.10.2007 22:38

UAW-QUAD writes, "Upon reading the UAW Local 2865's summary of advancements made in the recent round of contract negotiations (emailed 10/4), one might think we made significant progress in improving our rights and benefits. It is apparent, however, that only small movement was made in the area of improving the rights of minority groups, while, generally speaking, disproportionate progress was made around the rights of the majority."

Eric McDavid Still Being Denied Vegan Food - Your Help Needed!

Portland, 13.10.2007 13:38

It has been two weeks since the jury found Eric guilty, and we are still trying to regroup and get ready for the next round. While this is going to be a long process - one which will require your help and support in a variety of ways - there is one thing that simply cannot be put off. The jail is still denying Eric vegan food. After enduring a two-week hunger strike in March 2006, Eric was finally given vegan meals on April 24, 2006. This lasted for 15 full months. Then, without any warning or reasonable explanation, the jail cut off Eric's vegan meals one week before his trial began. Since that time, he has been surviving off the few options he can purchase from commissary (peanut butter, beans, chips... ) and the little food he can pull off of the meal trays they bring him (usually bread and fruit - sometimes oatmeal in the morning). Clearly, this is not enough to constitute a healthy, balanced diet. It is the jail's responsibility to provide Eric with the food he needs to remain healthy and strong. This is obviously something they are completely able to do, as they did so for 15 months with no problems.

Eric has been contemplating what courses of action are open to him in this matter, but unfortunately, his options have become even more limited. A hunger strike could be extremely risky due to the bout of pericarditis for which he was taken to the hospital in April. It is unclear whether his heart could handle the strain a hunger strike would put on his body - he could quickly end up back in the hospital, potentially with a VERY serious heart condition. In the meantime, Eric continues to lose weight, and his health will soon begin deteriorating. Please call the jail immediately and request that Eric be given vegan meals... again.

Eric's x-ref is: x-2972521.
You can call the jail at :
916-874-6752
916-874-6905

Below are some things you might suggest while talking to the jail:

È sciopero!

Switzerland, 13.10.2007 06:37

In risposta alla disdetta del contratto nazionale mantello dell'edilizia, dalle 20 di ieri (venerdì 12 ottobre) i lavoratori dei cantieri di Faido, Bodio ed Amsteg sono scesi in sciopero.
Questa mattina alle 6'00 le squadre di lavoratori che avrebbero dovuto entrare in servizio, si sono astenute dal lavoro. Alle 8'30 invece hanno avuto luogo le assemblee dei lavoratori. Le agitazioni dovrebbero proseguire almeno fino alle 20'00 di sabato.

Dopo la grande manifestazione di Zurigo del 22 settembre alla quale hanno aderito più di 17 mila lavoratori, ecco un altro gesto di protesta per opporsi al dumping salariale e sociale.

Lunedì prossimo sarà la volta dei lavoratori edili di Berna, Ginevra e Neuchâtel.

Bristolians Take Parliament Square

Bristol, 12.10.2007 21:38

Gordon Brown calls off his ban of demonstration at the last minute. Gordon Brown calls off his ban of demonstration at the last minute. As an increasing number of Iraqi provinces are refusing entry to refugees fleeing violence, Turkey escalates military action near Iraq border against PKK rebels and US air strikes that kill at least 15 Iraqi civilians, including nine children - Iraq is still an issue. Anton writes: Looking back to 2003, when the conscience of the whole country railed against the idea of dropping bombs on poor people in Iraq for a pack of lies, nine coaches full of angry people left Bristol’s Anchor Road on that cold February morning. Well, killing people for profit by the American neocons it is no less wrong now than it was then, and the spin is no different. Even down to the double counting of the troops Brown said were soon to be withdrawn from Iraq, the whole thing stinks! Any minute now Gordon Brown will tear off his mask and lo and behold, there stands Tony Bliar, still running the show....Even so our large coach was filled to capacity with a good cross-section of Bristol folk, many young people came, and there were those of us who are not so young. We may have differed in many ways, but this day we had one common aim, to make our voices of discontent ring through the Palace of Westminster, and to defy Gordon Brown's assault on our democratic rights. What incredible double standards, after supporting democracy for the people in Burma, that same day Gordon Brown and his police force banned our own citizens from a peaceful protest in Parliament Square, SOCPA? Serious Crime? What a laugh!

El mercat de la droga a Birmania

Els mercats del petroli, del narcotràfic, del tràfic d'òrgans i persones, entre d'altres, tornen a estar al darrera dels canvis polítics sota la màscara de la llibertat i la democràcia. No és una qüestió de bons i dolents perquè els actors són els mateixos: els esbirros del poder prenent la deshumanització en forma de repressió, sobrexplotació dels recursos naturals i mà d'obra en pro del interessos dels estats capitalistes on les víctimes continuen jugant el mateix paper prenent el carrer per reclamar les seves llibertats i el respecte com a persones. Arguments el suficientment robustos com per a que la comunitat internacional i els estats democràtics postmodernistes es posin les mans al cap, però no fan pas per buscar solucions reals que trenquin l'espiral de violació dels drets humans, sinó més aviat per legitimar i posar mitjans (CIA, Mossad, ONU...) per fer caure la dictadura militar a Birmania i fer-se amb el negoci de la droga i els interessos corporatius i financers occidentals que actualment estan parcialment tancats per la nacionalització de part de la producció autòctona.

Activists Mobilizing To Keep Transgendered Protections in ENDA

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.10.2007 06:08

Activists are mobilizing to roll back changes to the Employee Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which is moving quickly through the House of Representatives. ENDA, which was introduced to protect LGBTQ employees, was recently stripped of provisions prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity. The stripped down bill denies protection to transgendered people and introduces loopholes that would seriously limit the bill's effect.

IWW Pickets at Metro Lighting

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.10.2007 03:08

On Saturday, October 13, 2007 the IWW will picket with striking workers from 12:00-5:00 PM in front of Metro Glass on 2121 San Pablo Ave. in Berkeley. Workers at Metro Lighting are striking over the unfair labor practices of the owners, Lawrence and Christa Grown, who last month fired one of their workers for labor organizing and whistle blowing over unsafe working conditions. They are demanding that all union workers be rehired with back wages and a pay raise for the retail workers who make almost half as much as their co-workers in the assembly shop in the back.



US District Court Judge Halts Disappearance via &quot;Transfer&quot;

DC, 12.10.2007 00:09

Last week Judge Gladys Kessler of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued an injunction preventing the Pentagon from 'transferring' a prisoner, Mr. Rahman, from Guantanamo to his native Tunisia. Such 'transfers' are not transfers at all, but disappearances to hide torture by silencing survivors. Judge Kessler’s injunction is a welcome sliver of hope that courts will finally limit the Adminstration’s torture operation in Guantanamo."This is the first time," Mr. Rahman's attorney Joshua Denbeaux told the Washington Post, "that the judicial branch has exercised its inherent power to control the excesses of the executive as to treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. The executive has now been told it cannot bury its Guantanamo mistakes in Third World prisons…"



People in El Salvador Are Fighting Back Against Water Privatization

October 6–13 is an international week of solidarity to demand that "terrorism" charges against Salvadoran water privatization protesters be dropped. The corporate takeover of the world's water, often aided by repressive US-trained police forces, has been called "the greatest theft of common resources facing humanity and the planet today."



Singers arrested outside arms factory.

United Kingdom, 11.10.2007 23:08

5 people were arrested after singing 'We Are the Champions' at a karaoke themed demo at EDO MBM's Brighton arms factory. The police reacted to the cringe-worthy songs by arresting some demonstrators under noise byelaws and then imposing conditions to prevent the warmongers hearing an encore. Those who didn't move along were nicked, while the sour-faced managing director looked on.

This major police response to a bit of a sing-song follows a successful blockade of the factory last week. All doors into the building were glued shut and two people locked themselves to the front doors with D-locks. This forced the managing director to smash his own window to get in and delayed the manufacture of deadly bomb components, which loses the company both profit and popularity with clients. | Video.

As EDO's profits slide, the campaign against them is building. Campaigners are looking forward to the traditionally lively Haloween demo on the 31st October, when the ghosts of EDO' s victims (and a host of weird and wonderful beings) come to haunt them.

smashEDO protestors have observed that the police are using increasingly repressive measures to deal with the protests, and one compared police behaviour that was common prior to the attempt to injuct protests in 2005. At the hearings, it became apparent that the police had urged EDO MBM to seek the injunction. The case collapsed, costing EDO MBM much money. Since then the company's fortunes have taken a number of knocks. Campaigners have vowed to keep up the pressure until the arm's manufacturer closes the factory.

Worker's Rights Rally Friday

Portland, 11.10.2007 22:38

Portland Immigrant Rights Coalition and Portland Jobs With Justice
Say NO to Unfair Social Security "No Match" Rules
NATIONAL DAY of ACTION This Friday, Oct.12.
Rally at the Federal Building
1220 SW 3rd Av., Portland
Friday, October 12, 11 am

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rule punishing employers if they do not take action after receiving Social Security "no-match" letters is on trial. A temporary restraining order found that "if allowed to proceed, the mailing of no-match letters, accompanied by DHS's guidance letter, would result in irreparable harm to innocent workers and employers."

On Friday at 10 am, a delegation representing labor and immigrant rights will visit the Social Security Administration Office (1538 SW Yamhill) to urge support for abolishing the DHS rule. The Rally at 11 am will demonstrate broad based community opposition to this flawed and discriminatory ruling.
