Police beat protesters after being stopped from arresting homeless man at IMF

DC, 22.10.2007 16:09

What had been a peaceful rally on the second day of IMF/World Bank protests turned nasty in Murrow Park as police made two stupid moves within 10 minutes of each other. First they tried to arrest a homeless man in front of the protest, and when that failed they started beating people AUDIO(incl 2 interviews): http://dc.indymedia.org/usermedia/audio/5/imf_cops_day2.mp3 Video by Mike Flugennock: It's a World, World, World, World Bank!

The Plan for all UK Nuclear Waste to be Dumped in Somerset

Bristol, 22.10.2007 11:37

West Somerset Council has begun discussing proposals to accept cash incentives in exchange for all UK's nuclear waste. Jim Duffy of Stop Hinkley writes: A former Government advisor on nuclear waste will voice his concerns, at a public meeting in Watchet, over fears that all of the UK's legacy of toxic nuclear waste might be buried at Hinkley Point. Hinkley is a potential site and one of only three where stakeholders have been invited to meet and discuss preparations for the nation's Deep Geological Repository in which half a million cubic metres of the most toxic and long-lived waste could be buried. This follows a recommendation by the Committee on Radiological Waste Management (CoRWM) to bury the nation's most dangerous nuclear waste in a single one kilometre deep repository. Pete Wilkinson, who was a member of the Government's advisory committee for its three years' duration, is concerned that the committee's parallel recommendations to launch intensive research into safety, health and security issues have been ignored in the Government's rush to deal with the toxic nuclear waste and 'solve' the problem, paving the way for nuclear new build....A thorny issue for the Government is how to persuade local communities in Somerset, or anywhere in the country, to volunteer to take the waste given the evident risks involved. The question of cash incentives for local councils has already arisen with proposals to build a separate Low Level Waste site at Hinkley and may be applied to the much more dangerous High Level Waste currently stored in vaults and silos at Sellafield in Cumbria...Controversially, West Somerset and Sedgemoor Councils have begun discussing proposals to accept these cash incentives to compensate for the risk to local communities of a Low Level Waste facility.

Protests greet IMF Delegates

United States, 21.10.2007 18:37

WASHINGTON DC, October 21, 2007 – Delegates from the World Bank and IMF met this week in Washington. The meetings were greeted by protests and group actions throughout the city. Although mostly peaceful there are reports of some incidents with police and injuries. Arrest numbers are believed to be low and there are no reports of any mass arrests by the police. Corporate media is playing up the image of an injury of a bystander to portray the protesters as violent. The details of this incident are as yet unclear.

O'odham Return from Gathering with Mexico's Indigenous and Subcomandante Marcos

Portland, 21.10.2007 12:38

When more than 500 Indian delegates gathered in Vicam Pueblo in Rio Yaqui, Mexico, at the Gathering of Indigenous Peoples of America, the power of a global spiritual force was present and released, said Ofelia Rivas, an O'odham woman living on the border of the United States and Mexico.

[From Narco News:] Today, O'odham ceremonial places are seen as tourist sightseeing places, from the great lava fields along the border to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico. "The ceremony sites and sacred places are under constant threat by archeologists, mining companies and Mexicans claiming O'odham lands and communities, such as a recent threat of a proposed chemical waste dump proposed location, just eight miles from our ceremony site."

With the agenda of assimilating O'odham, the United States placed O'odham children in boarding schools and relocated O'odham to cities. "The destruction of the social structures of the people is evident today; the people are dependent on the system to exist. Our language that was forbidden in boarding school is today surviving, but by a small degree." Now, the militarization at the border prevents O'odham from crossing on traditional routes.

In Mexico, ranchers, farmers and corporations are seizing O'odham lands. In 1845, there were 45 villages south of what is now the border. Today, there are nine surviving villages. "Today we continue to demand access to our lands, including access to our ancestral routes, to conduct our Him' dag and make offering to sacred places. We demand protection of our cultures and sacred places. We demand fair elections and our own representation in the government systems that ignore us."
"It is not a local movement, it is not just the Zapatistas. It is the Indigenous People of the world creating this movement" Radio Insurgente Audio File

Anti-Capitalists Riot In Georgetown Against IMF/WB

Portland, 21.10.2007 12:38

Anti-Capitalists gathered in Washington Circle and began an un-permitted march through Georgetown Friday night. Georgetown was chosen, because it represents "excessive wealth and privelege." This march was held in protest of the IMF/WB meetings being held in Washington DC. According to media reports, even though police greatly outnumbered protesters property was vandalized and windows smashed in Georgetown DC. There have been at least 2 arrests and supposedly one bystander was injured by a brick in an Abercrombie and Fitch store.

LNG: &quot;Lease It To Us Or Lose It To Us&quot; Public Hearing Monday

Portland, 21.10.2007 12:38

Clatsop County will hold a public hearing on [Monday] October 22. The hearing is at 10 AM and extends into the evening, and will be at Libery Theater in downtown Astoria. We are urging the County Commission to deny the NorthernStar application, which received a positive recommendation from the Planning Commission. We need the County Commission to overturn their absurd decision. If you're interested in going down from Portland, contact Columbia Riverkeeper's LNG organizer, Dan Serres, at 503-890-2441.

Remember: What is happening here in the Northwest is just a taste of what this industry is doing around the world. People in Russia, Nigeria, Peru, Indonesia and dozens of other nations are in the firing line of the LNG export industry. It's colonization on both ends.

The Governors of Oregon and Washington are silent on this issue and need a kick in the you-know-what to get them to protect the people of Oregon from these irresponsible energy schemes. This is yet another commitment to polluting, climate-changing, landscape-altering, foreign fossil fuel infrastructure. We can stop the LNG addiction before it starts. Tell the Governors that the Northwest neither needs nor wants LNG:

LT WATADA UPDATE - Just Released at 4 pm

Portland, 20.10.2007 17:38

Lt. Ehren Watada at the Federal Courthouse in Tacoma between 11 am - 3 pm on Friday, Oct. 19. The Family and Friends of Lt. Watada are planning events for October 19 and October 27.

Supporters Prepare for Second Lt. Watada Court Martial: Lt. Watada's belief that the Iraq war is illegal and immoral has resonated with peace activists across the country and garnered national and international support. Lieutenant Watada was tried by a court martial this February for "missing movement" for failing to deploy and "conduct unbecoming an officer" for his statements opposing the war. After the prosecution had completed its case, the military judge, Lt. Col. John Head, intervened, declared a mistrial, and ordered Watada to be retried.

In a down to the wire decision, Federal Judge Benjamin Settle issued a last-minute stay temporarily blocking the second trial of Lt. Ehren Watada. On or after Friday, October 19th Judge Settle will decide Lt. Watada's constitutional claim that a second trial would amount to 'double jeopardy'. That decision will determine if a stay of court martial proceedings will be vacated or continue indefinitely. Lt. Watada seeks dismissal of all charges by the court and an honorable discharge from the Army.



Shut Down Downtown TACOMA! Against I.C.E! Against Raids! November 9th &amp;10th

Portland, 20.10.2007 17:38

Shut Down Downtown Tacoma! We want to show the powers that be, that a homeland security detention center will not be tolerated in our communities and in our region. This will be in solidarity with the No Borders camp that will be happening the same week down south. We plan on sending a very visible, clear message by not allowing business as usual to happen on these days.

Tacoma W.A 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 want to show solidarity with those at the No Borders camp down south who will be resisting the wall, detentions, capitalism and the institutions as well as trade agreements that are responsible for displacing millions of people around the world. We have had enough of this in our communities! Enough of these secret raids! We want this facility OUT of Tacoma!

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!



Biofuels Conference Distrupted At Concerns Over Multi-National 'Greenwash'

United Kingdom, 20.10.2007 16:08

This week Europe’s largest Biofuels event took place in Nottinghamshire amid growing concerns about severe impacts on climate, biodiversity and food production. The exhibition, featuring over a hundred trade stands, ran alongside a conference which opened on Wednesday with a key note speech from BP Biofuels’ Europe & Africa Director Oliver Mace, but was quickly thrown into chaos when a number of people dressed in suits marched onto the stage and pied the BP’s CEO for the ‘dangerous and dishonest’ greenwash and protest at the catastrophic effects of replacing climate-stabilising ecosystems with arable crops for biofuel feedstocks.

Throughout the afternoon, people held a very visible protest outside the conference which was held at the Newark Showground, north of Nottingham. To coincide with the national Biofuels Conference, protestors from No Agrofuels UK blockaded the D1 oils refinery and offices in Middlesbrough to raise awareness of the detrimental impact of agrofuels. 18 Protestors chained the 3 gates to the refinery shut and 2 protestors were D-locked to the main gates. No vehicles were able to enter or leave the site and all work appeared to have been stopped. Several banners were tied over the gates including "No Agrofuels, Land 4 People, Food, Biodiversity" and "Climate Change Profiteers".
