October 22nd Marches and Rallies Around the Country Demand Justice

United States, 30.10.2007 11:07

October 22nd, 2007 will be the 12th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. People in 20 cities around the United States will shine a spotlight on the national epidemic of police brutality. Families that have lost loved ones at the hands of the police, others who face official persecution, and sympathetic community members come together to say, "Stop police violence, repression, and the criminalization of a generation!" This year's protests will also highlight the case of the Jena Six.

The October 22nd Coalition says, "The nationwide epidemic of police brutality and repression is hidden from many people who would be outraged if they knew what was happening. Immigration police continue to terrorize immigrant communities raiding jobs and homes and separating husbands and wives and parents from children. This official brutality and repression must stop! We must resist the onslaught of police abuse as we work in many different ways to drag this truth out into the light of day."

Protests are being held in: Oakland, CA | Santa Rosa | Fresno | San Diego | Los Angeles | Seattle | Denver | Minneapolis/St. Paul | New York City | East Houston

Chooseday: Action on Climate Change or Religion?

Bristol, 29.10.2007 20:07

Questions Asked as Chooseday Prepares to Launch. Questions Asked as Chooseday Prepares to Launch. Joshua Hart writes: Chooseday will begin with the challenge that every Tuesday we 'choose' to leave our cars at home and experience what a day without cars feels like. Chooseday Oct 30th will be Chooseday’s public launch day. Come and join us at 8.30am by Burke’s statue on the ground between Colston Avenue and St Augustine’s parade – near the fountains. We are inviting people to come from all over the city by any and every possible means of transport other than the private car. That means walking, skating, cycling, horseriding, pogosticking, swimming, taking the bus or train or whatever carbon-lite transport you choose. We are expecting everyone from the legal profession through to a world champion skateboarder! Full article.Meanwhile, The Bristol Blogger is not convinced; It doesn’t take a lot of research to find out that this apparently robustly secular ‘Choose Day’ environmental event and website are in fact a marketing front for a charity called Agora and the main player behind Agora is the Reverend Dr Chris Sunderland of Emersons Green. And Sunderland’s charity only has, at best, a tangenital relationship to environmental causes. It’s actual objects being “The promotion of civic responsibility and good citizenship” and - wait for it - “The advancement of religion”.

The march covered a distance of 2.38 miles. Crowd estimates ranged from 4,000 to 6,000. The police downplayed the size, but acknowledged that the size of the crowd was "upwards from 2,000".

Ontruimingsgolf Amsterdam, 30 October

Netherlands, 29.10.2007 16:38

Voor diensdag, 30 October 2007, word in Amsterdam een ontruimingsgolf verwacht. Op maandag middag heeft ook de politie in tegenstelling tot eerder op de dag bevestigd dat morgen er een ontruimingsgolf is. of die in de ochtend of in de middag is wilde men echter niet zeggen.

Via brieven van de bestuursdienst, hierbij de bevestigde lijst met panden: Damrak 16, Ernest Staesstraat 1(hs), Ernest Staesstraat 49(hs), Kerkstraat 244, Kerkstraat 246, Koningsplein 1-3, Leliegracht 51, Van Boetzelaerstraat 2(II), Van Boetzelaerstraat 20(I), Zuider Ijdijk 68(hs), Ellermanstraat 33.


Verrassend is, dat ook Koningsplein 1 op de lijst geplaatst is, terwijl de bewoners enkele maanden geleden nog van burgermeester Cohen de toezegging gekregen hadden, dat hun pand niet voor leegstand ontruimd zou worden, en omdat een rechtszaak von 25 October op korte termijn door de eigenaar afgeblazen was. Op maandag middag vond er nog een aktie bij de Stopera plaats, om de ontruiming toch nog te stoppen.
In de afgelopenen weken, zijn er ook al twee ontruimingen buiten het ontruimingsgolf gewest.

Maandag, 15:45: Ondertussen heeft de eerst ontruiming al plaats gevonden heeft. Op Zuider Ijdijk 68, een gekraakte woonwagenkamp, is op dit moment een bulldozer bezig het hoofdgebouw te 'demoveren'.



Ein Jahr nach dem Mord: ¡Brad Will presente!

Germany, 29.10.2007 14:08

Vor einem Jahr, am 27. Oktober 2006, wurde der Medienaktivist Brad Will im mexikanischen Oaxaca getötet (2). Er hatte vor Ort die Rebellion der Bevölkerung des Bundesstaates dokumentiert, die über Monate für den Rücktritt des korrupten Gouverneurs Ulises Ruiz Ortiz gekämpft und sich mit der Volksversammlung der Völker Oaxacas (APPO) ein Instrument der Selbstverwaltung geschaffen hatte.



&quot;Zurück nach Genua!&quot;

Germany, 29.10.2007 14:08

Sechs Jahre nach dem G8-Gipfel in Genua gibt es noch immer etliche Gerichtsverfahren gegen DemonstrantInnen und Angehörige der Polizeikräfte. Die Prozesse gegen Führungskräfte von Polizei und Carabinieri werden hinausgezögert, um von der kürzeren Verjährungsfrist zu profitieren. In den Verfahren gegen 25 AktivistInnen zeigen die StaatsanwältInnen Canepa und Canciani Härte. Noch nie gab es derart hohe Strafanträge im Kontext von Straßenkämpfen.
Die Vernehmungen aller ZeugInnen sind abgeschlossen, in ihren Plädoyers fordern sie Haftstrafen zwischen 6 und 16 Jahren, insgesamt 225 Jahre. Mit den Verurteilungen wollen sie Geschichte schreiben: "Lasst und Genua als das bezeichnen, was es gewesen ist: Verwüstung und Plünderung".
Letzte Woche hat die Regierung in Rom Schadensersatzforderungen gegen die 25 angekündigt. Sie sollen insgesamt 2,6 Mio. € für entstandene Sachschäden, etwa am Gefängnis Marassi, bezahlen. Darin enthalten: Ein beträchtlicher Teil an Kompensation für den Imageverlust der Stadt Genua.

A description of Big Sur and it's place in the world

Santa Cruz, CA, 29.10.2007 10:08

Nick Oliva writes, "Big Sur. A place of great beauty and drama. A Wonder of the World, an international treasure taken for granted stands waiting mindless of humanity. The sheer cliffs that drop a thousand feet or more to the violent sea thrashing and pounding at the granite below. The dichotomy of danger and great beauty can only be watched from a distance, less one be swallowed up and taken by the forces of nature."

Nottingham City Council Silences Welfare Advice Row

United Kingdom, 28.10.2007 21:30

It was one of those things that the City Council wouldn't want to kick up a fuss about. After all, it was a controversial decision to merge the city's welfare rights department into the management of the housing benefit service back in September 2006. Employees were only told about the decision 2 or 3 days before it was implemented and were told in an email to 'keep quiet' about the issue. You can imagine people getting concerned over 'conflicts of interest' when you're supposed to get impartial and independent advice on welfare rights from people in the very same office as those authorizing the actual applications.

But thankfully someone decided she couldn't stay quiet over the issue. Sarah Roy, who worked for the council, posted an article on rightsnet.org.uk, a website for welfare rights workers to share information and knowledge. She posted the article in July but the City Council ordered the site to remove the posting instantly or else they would 'seek an injunction in the High Court and sue for damages'. The article was pulled. Another publication, called 'Benefits and Rights' also received legal threats from the council after it told readers it was to feature the issue in its next edition. They ran a 'shortened version' of the article. Sarah Roy was eventually fired over the issue. Read the full article for a second posting Sarah wrote on the Rightsnet forum, which has now also been removed.

Independent Media: Where Now?

Bristol, 28.10.2007 16:08

Sustaining Alternative Media - Bristol Indymedia to Bristol Social Forum Sustaining Alternative Media - Bristol Indymedia to Bristol Social Forum anonymite asks the big questions about alternative media: Having been involved in a number of projects over the years it has become apparent to myself that projects such as Bristol Indymedia and Bristol Social Forum occupy a particular space which makes their sustainability less certain than other projects, even while they demonstrate a very high level of popularity amongst readers and contributors. The points below are in no way intended as the only reasons why these two projects in particular have experienced problems of sustaining themselves, but they are intended to help to shed a slightly different light on what exactly some of the limiting factors are, while not excluding or minimising other concerns, or factors, people feel exist. A BROADER AND INCLUSIVE PURPOSE 1.) Groups and projects such as Bristol Indymedia and Bristol Social Forum exist to publicise everyone's events, while other groups and projects primarily only exist to publicise their own. 2.) People clearly want groups like Bristol Indymedia and Bristol Social Forum to exist, so as to have outlets to publicise their events, but they are not willing to both campaign for their own events, and also get involved in maintaining the infrastructure of groups like Bristol Indymedia and Bristol Social Forum. This is, in some ways, understandable, as the chances are they are already overstretched....

NYC Mexican consulate bombed

Portland, 28.10.2007 00:08

Early [Friday] morning explosives rocked the Mexican Consulate shattering windows and waking neighbors, nearly one year to the day since gunmen sympathetic to the Mexican ruling party assassinated anarchist activist and American independent journalist Brad Will. The murder of Brad Will sparked weeks of protest in his home of New York City. Demonstrators occasionally got unruly and left the Mexican Consulate on East 39th Street damaged. NYPD detectives have reviewed surveillance cameras from the area and believe that a lone man in his 20s hurled two small home made grenade-like explosive devices at the consulate building around 3:30 am this morning and left the scene on a bicycle.

Jake Ferguson Pleads Guilty

Portland, 27.10.2007 18:38

Today, 10/26/07, in the district of Oregon Federal Court in Eugene, Jacob "Jake" Jeremiah Ferguson entered a change of plea to one count of attempted arson and one count of arson for a fire at the Detroit Ranger Station the 28th of October, 1996.

The government agreed not to bring additional charges against Ferguson for the laundry list of crimes in which he was involved over the past decade, provided that he continue to cooperate completely in any ongoing or future investigations by federal, state or local authorities.

Aiken then asked Ferguson for his plea on the two counts, to which Ferguson said, "Guilty." Rather than sentencing him on the spot, Aiken set a sentencing hearing for January 10th of 2008 to allow time for pre-sentencing reports to be drafted.
