London Mexican Embassy Protest, The World Is Still Watching

United Kingdom, 01.11.2007 19:08

On Tuesday Tuesday 30 October protestors returned to the London Mexican Embassy to remember Brad Will and those who died in last year's civil uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico. William Bradley Roland was an Indymedia New York activist who was shot dead by paramilitaries whilst documenting the uprising in Oaxaca city [ Brad Will's last video]

Even though the protest was small, the message was still there, that Brad Will and all the other victims of repression in Mexico are not forgotten, and that justice for all the victims of the Oaxaca uprising is still due. This year's protest at the Mexican embassy passed peacefully, contary to the scenes of police violence that greeted protesters in 2006.

The action was the first in the US to target the growing Carbon Trading industry.

Afghanistan und kein Ende

Germany, 01.11.2007 01:08

Am 12.Oktober verlängerte der Bundestag den Einsatz von 3.500 Soldaten aus Deutschland in Afghanistan. Vorher hatte der Parteitag der Grünen den eigenen Abgeordneten empfohlen, gegen diesen Kriegseinsatz zu stimmen. An diese Empfehlung hielten sich nur 15 grüne Abgeordnete.
Auf dem jetzigen Parteitag der SPD in Hamburg distanzierte sich Außenminister Steinmeier zwar vom Irakkrieg, gleichzeitig ließ er vom Parteitag eine Resolution zur Fortführung des Krieges in Afghanistan verabschieden.
Am Wochenende demonstrierten auch zehntausende Kriegsgegner in den USA für den sofortigen Abzug der US-Truppen aus dem Irak.
Von einem Abzug ausländischer Truppen aus Afghanistan ist nirgendwo die Rede.

November 9th &amp; 10th-Shut Down Downtown Tacoma

Seattle, 31.10.2007 21:08

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 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!

Plan on being at S.17th and Pacific at around 11 o'clock am on Friday November 9th and Saturday November 10th. This will be the 'Green Zone'. Other forms of protest and resistance can start whenever and where ever those who plan them decide.

10,000 March against War in Boston

New Hampshire, 31.10.2007 15:08

Ten thousand people from throughout New England rallied on Boston Common and marched through the streets on Oct 27. They called for an end to the occupation of Iraq and no war on Iran. Despite heavy rain in the morning that was predicted to continue, it held off for almost the entire event.



Reclaiming the Streets One Honk at a Time

Boston, 31.10.2007 15:08

Boston, Mass.--Let's face it, we spend less and less time in public and when we do, it is often to just get from one place to another. True, every city has its fair share of festivities each year that manage to bring the populous into the streets for "celebration", but the result of these activities is little more than dollars spent, food ingested, and the possibility of being entertained.

Photos of O27 Seattle Regional Peace March and Rally

Portland, 31.10.2007 06:08

I'd estimate the crowd at somewhere around 10,000. One of the pictures included in this report clearly shows a long shot of a wide street fairly tightly packed for many, many blocks.

At the beginning the youth took the stage for a few brief speeches, some hip hop, and some really heavy metal music. The field below was far from filled, but steadily increased as the Rally unfolded. By the time the March began thousands thronged the area preparing to march the 2 miles to downtown Seattle.

No Border Camp is Coming

Portland, 31.10.2007 06:08

On the 18th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall organizers and activists will gather in Calexico/Mexicali to draw attention to the human rights atrocities that occur in regards to the hyper-militarized U.S./Mexico border, the people and corporations who benefit from these terrors and the rising tide of white supremacists who use immigration as a way to promote their twisted politics.

In the Northwest, there will be solidarity actions occuring simultanously to show support and to draw attention to the border issues that affect people in our own communities. The border is everywhere. We must confront it in our community while supporting others struggling against it in communities across the Americas.

Corvallis Officer Cox on Paid Suspension for over 1 month

Portland, 31.10.2007 04:38

CPD Officer Cox was placed on paid suspension over a month ago but no information has been forthcoming!

There have been reports of Officer Cox pulling people over without cause, following people for long distances until the finally make a mistake so he can pull them over, arresting people without cause, and a few reports of possible inappropriate behavior with women during stops. In light of Portland's Finest (Matthew Kohnke) taking a plea over his molestation of several women people are starting to wonder what Cox has been suspended for. Will the CPD be allowed to sweep his misconduct under the rug? The blue wall seems to be up on this one does anyone know what Cox was suspended for?

More Climate News: Bogota &amp; Bristol

Bristol, 30.10.2007 22:07

Bristolians in Bogota to Bristolians in Bristol - All Fighting Climate Chaos Bristolians in Bogota to Bristolians in Bristol All Fighting Climate Chaos Guayusa and Guayabo of Espacio Bristol-Colombiain Bogota write: This month we took part in a grass-roots Tribunal into Climate Justice in Bogotá. As well as hearing from some of those most vulnerable to the effects of climate chaos - always the poorest people, many of whom have already displaced at least once by the conflict in Colombia - the Tribunal highlighted how climate chaos is a consequence of a system based on economic growth and huge levels of consumption by those who can afford it. The promotion of agro-fuels was also high on the agenda. Agro-fuel crops, especially African Palm, now cover large parts of the Colombian countryside, in the wake of the violent displacement of small-scale farming communities....If you read our last update, you could be forgiven for thinking that Colombian social movements have gone tribunal crazy, with yet another tribunal - this time into climate justice - on top of the series of people’s hearings into crimes against humanity by specific multinational corporations that we talked about last time. However, the idea behind people’s tribunals is to define the responsibilities behind specific issues, as well as to move towards repairing damage caused and preventing future violations. And one difficultly with combating climate chaos is that responsibilities aren’t talked about enough...Full article.Meanwhile, back in Bristol, Dan Wardle writes: Bristolians may notice the sky is slightly darker on Halloween this year, but rest assured nothing sinister is afoot.Bristol Friends of the Earth have organised an electricity ‘switch off’ to highlight the amount of energy wasted by big business in the city centre simply by unnecessarily leaving lights and computer screens switched on..Full article.| Climate Justice Tribunal calls for grass-roots movements to unite against climate chaos | Lights set to go out over Bristol skyline | www.blackoutbristol.com | risingtide.org.uk/bristol | Biodiesel, palm oil and Afro-Colombian communities (PDF) | Other Climate Related News: UWE Students Protest Natwest's Climate Damage | 'Climate refugees' Locked-Up at the 'Oil Bank of Scotland' | Lies, cops, rising tide, and trains | Bristol International Airport: The Gloves Are Off |Contribute An Article | How To Contribute Articles - A Brief Guide | Add To The Calendar

SOCPA consultation re-opened

United Kingdom, 30.10.2007 21:10

The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (SOCPA) was introduced by David Blunkett to get rid of Brian Haw, the peace campaigner from Parliament Square.

The Serious Organised Crime Agency, an FBI-like agency to tackle "serious organised crime", are now being asked by Gordon Brown to expand their powers of limiting the right to free speech and free protest around the Houses of Parliament, even though one of the first things Gordon Brown said in his premiership, was that he was about to scrap it!

SOCPA contravenes our basic rights of Free Speech and the right to Protest, as Alison Hannah of the Legal Action Group states, "The distinction between ‘arrestable’ and ‘serious arrestable’ offences has been abolished, and the power of arrest now applies to all offences, however minor."

Big Money Impacting Local School Board Election

Seattle, 30.10.2007 19:08

Progressive Sally Soriano has 4 years experience as Seattle School Board Director, is finding it difficult to get her message out in the District 1 race. Although she has an excellent record on the school board and has shown a willingness to engage dialogue with her constituents, her opponent, Peter Maier, is going all out with his $130,000 kitty to win a position that pays $5000/year. The political and economic establishment is financing his campaign. Many are asking if Maier’s kitty will be the determining factor in the election.



Why Should We Care About Public Schools?

Seattle, 30.10.2007 19:08

It's time to vote for public school board candidates. This year, more than ever, we are facing a critical battle between progressives and big business interests. Progressive candidates (Sally Soriano, Maria Ramirez and Darlene Flynn) want to deal with improving the quality of education, closing the "achievement gap" (seen by progressives as an issue of social justice relative to race and class), creating more inclusive and democratic decision-making processes, and strengthening public schools by involving community. Collective campaign funds reported by October 20, 2007: $74,641.

Their opponents; 'The Big-Business-Slate' (Steve Sundquist, Peter Maier, Sherry Carr) will serve the interests of those who are focused on privatization and corporatization of public education. Their campaign platforms sound similar to those of the progressive candidates. Collective campaign funds reported by October 20, 2007: $329,478.They talk about the achievement gap, about quality schools, and education reform; but their endorsement and donor lists sound like the who's who of privatizers; legislators, city mayor, investors, and business leaders and other private interests who have pushed for charter schools, private programs in our schools, appointed school boards, school closures and greater standardized testing.

Dignity Not Detention!

United Kingdom, 30.10.2007 11:08

Asylum seekers, refugees, trade unionists and supporters from all over the North marched from the Home Office in Sheffield to Lindholme Detention centre near Doncaster between 26-28th October. The marchers were demanding "The right to work for asylum seekers" and stating that "Seeking asylum is not a crime." They finished at Lindholme immigration removals centre, the nearest such centre to Nottinghamshire, where asylum seekers are often held without having committed any criminal offence. The demonstration there on Sunday 28th was joined by supporters from Nottingham.

A rally was held at the fence of Lindholme and the marchers could hear detainees inside chanting in response to them. A candlelit vigil for those who'd died in detention centres was held and speakers from many countries, including the Congo, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Iran, Iraq and South Africa spoke. The demonstration is the latest in a series of protests at Lindholme making the demand to "Shut Down Lindholme!"
