No a la destrucció dels barris, recuperem-los!

[16oct] Raval Estan desallotjant el centre social Ruïnamalia
[16oct] Bon Pastor Volen desallotjar les cases barates!

Els dies 25 i 26 d'octubre està previst el judici a l'Audiència Provincial contra Can Vies. La demanda és a petició de l'empresa de transports TMB, empresa de la qual l'ajuntament de Barcelona en té un 51%. Aquesta és una mostra més de l'espectacle hipòcrita de la classe política que, per una banda intenta desviar l'atenció amb un pacte per l'habitatge que només afavoreix als promotors inmobiliaris i per l'altra destrueix els barris per a convertir la ciutat en un simple aparador turístic on l'especulació segueix devorant els drets de les persones amb total impunitat. Davant d'aquesta situació només les resistències autorganitzades poden fer front als atacs al territori i plantar cara a les polítiques especulístiques de l'administració.

[20oct] Dissabte, 12h. Plaça de Sants: Aturem la Demanda, Can Vies es queda.

[20oct] Dissabte, al Forat de la Vergonya, a partir de les 11h: Jornada de trobada i debat de lluites veïnals.

Solidarity with the Urewera 17! Free them now!

Aotearoa, 17.10.2007 04:09

Five arrestees appeared in the Rotorua and Wellington District Courts today, after yesterday evening's revoking of Jamie Lockett's bail in the Auckland High Court.

In Rotorua, Tame Iti was denied bail and will reappear on October 24th. In Wellington, four arrestees were expected to have a hearing on whether or not their cases would be moved to Auckland, but no decision was reached. All four will reappear on Friday for a bail hearing.

Around 4-5 people in Auckland have been questioned by police on Tuesday and Wednesday, although none have been arrested. It is extremely important that anyone called in for questioning has a lawyer present, and makes no comment whatsoever.

Native Community Demands Repatriation of Ancestral Remains

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.10.2007 03:38

Members of the Native community and their allies are protesting UC Berkeley's decision to dissolve an autonomous unit that handles compliance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Activists charge UC Berkeley and the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, which house 13,000 native ancestral remains, of not complying with NAGPRA and of failing to include Native representatives in their decision-making processes. An Oct. 5 rally protested the university's move to dissolve the NAGPRA unit and called for the repatriation of all ancestral remains.

Georgetown-once DC's Slaving port, now the home of today's global slavemasters

DC, 17.10.2007 03:09

Before the Civil War, wealthy DC residents could go down to the docks of Georgetown to the slave auctions when they wanted some cheap labor. The slave market may be gone, but it's legacy remains. Forced and other ultra-cheap labor remains the driving force of today's corporate capitalism, providing the luxury goods now displayed in Georgetown.



Author Naomi Wolf Warns of Fascism in America.

NYC, 17.10.2007 01:38

Fascism is coming to America. This is the
overarching message of Naomi Wolf’s new book, The End
of America: A Letter of Warning To A Young Patriot.
Naomi Wolf came to the Barnes and Noble on 22nd Street
and 6th Ave. to promote this book, and she has been
promoting it for the last month. Wolf, an American
author and activist whose claim to fame was the
feminist book The Beauty Myth, argues that there are
ten definitive steps that governments take in order to
turn their society into a fascist one. These ten
steps, argues Wolf, are occurring right here in
America, under the administration of George W. Bush.

Day of Local Action against 'The Oil and Gas Bank'

United Kingdom, 16.10.2007 23:08

On 15th October, local groups which formed to mobilise for this year's Camp for Climate Action, took action against the Royal Bank of Scotland, a major backer of the aviation industry and the world's self-described ‘Oil and Gas Bank’. Over 25 protests and actions took place, with Headquaters being targetted, local branches occupied, and many banner letting the public know about the banks role in Climate crimes [Actions round up]

A Sheffield based group wrote; "RBS is helping force open the carbon frontier, financing controversial projects in Nigeria, the Caucasus and Wales. Its involvement in Angolan and Nigerian oil fields encourages corruption and conflict, while gas projects from the Arabian Gulf to the Gulf of Mexico threaten environmental destruction. The thirty oil and gas finance deals RBS signed between 2001 and 2006 locked us all into 655 million tonnes of emissions over the next 15 years, more than the UK’s entire annual emissions."

A First-Hand Account of the Jena 6 Case by Terry Davis, Investigator for Mychal Bell

United States, 16.10.2007 20:37

The following is a talk given by Terry Davis, investigator with the legal defense team for Mychal Bell, one of the members of the Jena 6 on trial in Louisiana. Davis was in Jena for three weeks and was present for the historic march there on Sept. 20. She gave a talk in Champaign-Urbana on October 12, 2007 at the Urban League. I don’t think this story became world famous by accident. There’s something about it that just grabs at the heart and I think that made it big, even though there are things like what have been happening to the Jena six, unfortunately, way too much and in way too many places. read more

Videos of Transform Columbus Day 2007

Portland, 16.10.2007 16:38

This music video was filmed by a participant of the Transform Columbus Day march in Denver. The objective of the march was to establish group unity, and they were successful in stopping a racist Columbus parade three times. 83 people were arrested

In many cities, Columbus day parades have been shelved and replaced with fun and decent italian ethnic celebrations, such as in San Francisco. While Denver was the site of the first Columbus parade nationally, a period of years went by when no parade was held. The revived parade held during the past decade is conducted very inappropriately, and repeatedly uses grotesque imagery such as groups historically reenacting the color guard of the frontier cavalry unit which cleared tribes out of Colorado, and participants have shouted ugly slurs at children in the other march. Organizers of Transform Columbus Day have repeatedly stated their request that they just change the name of this march, and bring in other heroes, and the club organizing the parade seems to dig-in-their heels and make their Columbus celebration more intense.

Political &quot;Beer Goggles&quot;: Why Should Leftists NOT Support Ron Paul?

DC, 16.10.2007 06:09

Our New Special friend, "jamie", tries to tell us why Lefties should support Libertarian party candidate Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) for President in 2008. Perhaps it might be easier to point out why Lefties shouldn't support Ron Paul.

Of course, we'll go on the assumption that US electoral politics — especially in the Presidential arena — is a process that is actually democratic and which provides actual serious choices to voters, and isn't just a media-rigged, corporate cash-whoring, DU-mutated caricature of a 1944 USO Show complete with a reanimated Ann Sheridan whooping it up with Our Brave Boys.

Bristol, 15.10.2007 09:38

Vehicle Entrance Blocked atRoyal Bank of Scotland’s Corporate Offices at Temple Quay Vehicle Entrance Blocked at Royal Bank of Scotland’s Corporate Offices at Temple Quay A group of ‘climate refugees’ are blocking the vehicle entrance to the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Corporate Offices at Temple Quay to shine the spotlight on climate criminals RBS, the self-proclaimed ‘Oil and Gas’ Bank. Six people from Bristol Rising Tide for Climate Action dressed as homeless polar bears have locked themselves together and are currently preventing all vehicles entering the RBS branch. This is part of a National Day of Local Action against the Royal Bank of Scotland called by those hugely concerned with the devastation to the climate, planet and people. RBS-NatWest publicly promotes itself as “The Oil & Gas Bank”. They provide the financial fuel that is accelerating climate change. Without these loans to oil and gas corporations the projects would not happen. [2]It is estimate that in 2006, the bank provided over $10 billion to fossil fuels – more than five times that provided to renewable energy. RBS provide oil corporations with loans to build new massively ecologically detrimental drilling rigs, pipelines and oil tankers. And as RBS’s profits rise so does the carbon in the atmosphere.

BLM Extends WOPR Comment Period to Dec. 10; Get Involved Locally

Portland, 15.10.2007 05:38

Due to public pressure, the Bureau of Land Management recently extended the public comment period for the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR) to December 10, 2007. Please take a moment and submit a comment on this proposal that will open up old-growth and streamside reserves on western Oregon BLM lands to clearcutting and ramp up logging by three-fold in the region. More information about the WOPR can be found at link to www.oregonheritageforests.org.

On Wednesday, October 18, the Eugene BLM will be hosting a "technical briefing" on the WOPR. It is being held from 8:00 am- 4:30 pm at the Eugene BLM office, 2890 Chad Drive in Eugene. Details about the event can be found at  http://www.blm.gov/or/plans/wopr/oct-pub-meetings.php. This is a good opportunity to learn about any issues you have related to the WOPR.

Join the Cascadia Wildlands Project and Oregon Wild for a hike to a remnant old-growth forest outside of Cottage Grove now threatened by the WOPR. This forest is literally the backyard of many landowners in the area who are outraged by the BLM proposal. We will depart Eugene at 9:30 am on Saturday, October 20 from Kinko's back parking lot (13th and Willamette St.). Please RSVP for the hike

EVENT: New Film About Venezuelan Revolution

Portland, 15.10.2007 05:38

'NO VOLVERAN', the most up to date documentary about the Venezuelan Revolution, will be playing on Saturday, Oct. 20th @ Liberty Hall at 7pm (311 N Ivy).

While giving a brief overview of recent events, the film's focus is the worker organizations that have successfully responded to the challenges of globalization and outsourcing, as well as other attacks on their living standards from profit-hungry corporations. Venezuela remains the most politically progressive country in the world, not because of Chavez, but because of the action of the people pushing the revolution forward. There are thus many lessons that US workers and activists could learn from this on-going process.

Come join us for a post-film discussion and learn how to become involved in Venezuelan solidarity work.
