Anti-fascists successfully blockade BNP meeting venue

United Kingdom, 18.10.2007 17:08

Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, was scheduled to speak at Kimberley Parish Hall on Tuesday 16th Oct. The hall was surrounded by anti-fascists from well before the event was scheduled to take place. The anti-fascists massively outnumbered the police as well as the BNP and their supporters. Anti-fascists were responding to a callout from Nottinghamshire Stop the BNP for a mass demonstration against the planned meeting.

Police numbers were very low though and they did not really have the resources to make arrests. There were 3 arrests though, mainly around the chaos of a particular scuffle or other. All this resulted in was 2 cautions and 1 released uncharged. The evening ended with the anti-fascists agreeing to leave. It was only this gesture that allowed Nick Griffin to leave the building. No more than about 10 people managed to pass through the lines over a period of more than 2 hours.

Confrontation with authorities in Parliament Square

United Kingdom, 18.10.2007 17:08

On 8th October, the day that the British Parliament resumed after its Summer recess, a large group of anti-war protesters marched into Parliament Square. They were joined by people who demanded the basic freedom to be able to protest peacefully without prior police permission or conditions.

In the past demonstrators in London have been arrested, charged and fined or imprisoned simply for reading out a list of names or for carrying an innocuous banner, under the draconian SOCPA legislation brought in by Prime Minister Blair's government and carried on by his successor Brown. Since a raid on protesters' legitimate encampment in the Square by Mayor Livingstone's Greater London Authority (GLA) team on 17th August, a surrounding metal barrier has been erected which severely inhibits the ability to demonstrate there.

Dans une massive vague de répression, plus de 300 flics armés ont attaqué des maisons dans tout le pays et arrêté 17 personnes. Des perquisitions on été effectuées à Auckland, Whakatane, Ruatoki, Hamilton, Palmerston North, Wellington et Christchurch. La police a également interpelé plus de 60 personnes pour des interrogatoires. Les interpelés sont tous des activistes du mouvement pour la paix et pour l'environnement "Tino Rangatiratanga". L'activiste le plus connu de "Tino Rangatiratanga" Tame Iti était parmi les premiers arrêtés, lundi matin 15 octobre, à 4h dans sa maison. Le centre social anarchiste "Spaca Inside" à Auckland a été attaqué a 6 heure du matin. [ Durchsuchungsbefehl ] et le centre des 128 activistes à Wellington [ vidéo de l'attaque ]. À Tuhoe Country, la ville de Ruatoki a été bloquée pendant plusieurs heures par des unités de police armée. Beaucoup de voitures on été fouillées, dont des bus d'école.
14 des inculpés ont été vus par le juge le même jour à Auckland, Rotorua et Wellington. La liberté sous caution leur a tous été refusée. Ne peuvent paraître publiquement que le nom de deux personnes, les autres restant non-nommés. Ils sont accusés de plusieurs délits sous la loi des armes - ils sont suspectés de "possession de différentes armes à feu et de munitions". D'autres accusations pourront suivre dans les jours qui viennent.

November 9th &amp;10th: Smash Tacoma ICE

Seattle, 18.10.2007 16:08

Tacoma has the biggest Homeland Security Detention Center in the North West! They have been tearing apart families, separating children born here from their parents and loved ones that were not. Sixty-four people have died in these detention centers since 2004, and just recently about three hundred people were made ill from the food given in the Tacoma Detention Center. We have had enough of this in our communities! Enough of these secret raids! We want this facility OUT of Tacoma!

Downtown Will NOT have business as usual! We plan on shutting down the downtown area of Tacoma to send a very clear message that will be heard by the powers that be, that we do not want this detention facility any where near us and our communities.

There will be a designated green zone at S. 17th and Pacific on the corner and in the grassy park across from the art museum. In this area only 100% LEGAL forms of protest will be taking place! Bring puppets, musical instruments, signs, banners, creativity and passion. The rest of down town will be open to diverse and creative tactics!

Los días 25 y 26 de Octubre está previsto el juicio en la Audiencia Provincial contra Can Vies. La demanda es la petición de la empresa de transportes TMB, empresa de la que el Ayuntamiento de Barcelona tiene un 51%. Esta es una muestra más del espectáculo hipócrita de la clase política que, por un lado intenta desviar la atención con un pacto por la vivienda que sólo favorece a los promotores immobiliarios y por la otra destruye los barrios para convertir la ciudad en un simple escaparate turístico donde la especulación sigue devorando los derechos de las persona con total impunidad. Ante esta situación solo las resistencias autoorganizadas pueden hacer frente a los ataques al territorio y plantar cara a las políticas especulativas de la administración.

Sabado manifestaci�n: Cierre de Garo�a ya!!!

Euskal Herria, 18.10.2007 08:39

Este sabado, 20 de Octubre, recorrer� Gasteiz una manifestaci�n para exigir el cierre de la central nuclear de Garo�a convocada por Eguzki. La /Iniciativa Araba sin Garo�a/, con mas de 40 organismos, partidos y sindicatos apoya la movilizaci�n que partira a las 19 de la tarde desde la plaza de los Fueros.

Garo�a con una tecnolog�a de los a�os 60 fue conectada a la red en 1971. Su vida �til estaba prevista para 25 a�os, es decir, deber�a estar cerrada desde 1995 pero tiene prorrogada su actividad hasta el 2009. Esa prolongaci�n a ocasionado diversos problemas.

La pr�ctica totalidad de Ayuntamientos alaveses han aprobado una moci�n de la Iniciativa pidiendo el cierre de la central y 100 Comit�s de Empresa que representan a m�s de 100.000 trabajadoras/es en Araba han suscrito un acuerdo pidiendo el cierre de la central y llamando a la mani del s�bado 20 de octubre a las 7 de la tarde en la Plaza de los Fueros de Gasteiz.

Es precisamente ahora cuando el gobierno espa�ol est� decidiendo el futuro de la central nuclear, y tiene toda la pinta de que de nuevo el partido del talante va a hacer tol�n. El PSOE se comprometi� en su programa electoral a cerrar todas las centrales nucleares de primera generaci�n en el estado (Zorita se cerr� el a�o pasado) y s�lo queda Garo�a. El PSOE quiere hacer pucherazo electoral e incumplir su compromiso de cerrar Garo�a esta legislatura (quedan 4 meses). Desde Eguzki hacen responsable directo al PSOE de las consecuencias de mantener en funcionamiento Garo�a m�s de 37 a�os.

David Horowitz asks on Front Page Magazine’s website today: Who is afraid of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week? The answer to that question should be all Americans who have a sense of justice and fairness. The real question that needs to be asked is what is the purpose of this ridiculously-titled week being sponsored by Young Republicans and other campus groups at more than 100 university campuses in the country is this: What is the purpose of "Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week?"

Stop Playing Their Game: Time To Boycott Voting

DC, 17.10.2007 23:09

After many years of political disappointment, more progressives, liberals and conservatives — and certainly moderates and independents — know in their hearts that voting for Democrats or Republicans is a waste. Just imagine if voter turnout was cut to 25 percent or less! Let the whole world see Americans boycotting a broken and corrupt political system and rejecting what has become a delusional democracy. To keep voting in an unjust political system makes us willing political slaves that the rich and powerful elites exploit.

Indy Report from Inside the Press Tent at Topoff 4

Portland, 17.10.2007 18:38

My first day reporting on Topoff 4: Top Off 4 kicked off in Portland, Guam, and Phoenix on October 15th, 2007. This drill takes place alongside several other drills including both war games and martial law simulations. I assembled my camera gear.Upon hanging up the phone with Jack Blood, (a radio talk show host on I heard the sound of jets overhead. Then I looked at the clock. 15 minutes til 9 AM, the official launch time of the "live" Topoff 4 drill.

At approximately 9:06AM a mock dirty bomb exploded at Portland International Raceway. However, the real area of concern is the Topoff 4 exercise was the east end of the Steel Bridge. P.I. R. was determined to be a better location to practice the response capabilities so the city center doesn't have to come to a halt. The media tent was located about 1,000 feet from the staged incident. You could see about 50 police, all in black, with helmets with faceguards. One was walking a K-9 as he stopped to chat with a friend dressed up in a bio-hazard suit. I saw about 40 or 50 of them. This took place to the backdrop of an entire fleet of ambulances, firetrucks, and Red Cross tents. Dozens of firefighters moved into action taking care of the victims. On the ground there appeared to be several non-moving bodies. In another area, you could see a bunch of bodies in some kind of protect quarantine zone.

I was present to witness the press conference that followed with FEMA. There were multiple agencies present, including the FBI and ATF. |

Interview with local FBI about Hammerfest

Portland, 17.10.2007 17:38

Audio interview from Friday October 5th with local office of FBI about Hammerfest, and about the FBI's double standards.

The Hammerskins, began life in 1987 as the Confederate Hammerskins. The group was founded in Dallas, TX gang specializing in violence against Jewish people and people of color, sexual minorities, as well as activists. The Hammerskin Nation--a masthead for Hammerskin racist skinhead crews--has since gone national, and later international, with their bigoted agenda.

The Hammerskin Nation event in Oregon was planned in conjunction with Volksfront, a Portland-led white supremacist group with links to Kenneth Mieske and Kyle Brewster, two of the killers of Ethiopian immigrant Mulugeta Seraw in a 1988 racially charged crime.

I spoke today with Mike Sweeney, with the Portland office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, about the Hammerskin nation:

And yet the Board once again rendered the immigrant community invisible by passing the measure quickly and unanimously.
