San Francisco Bay Area, 04.11.2007 22:38

On Saturday, November 3rd, San Francisco hosted one of over 1,400 rallies across the country to call on political leaders to "Step It Up" by strengthening policies to cut carbon emissions. Step It Up has called the campaign "the largest coordinated climate change event in U.S. history." Step It Up San Francisco featured a carnival-like atmosphere complete with a Toss Out Fossil Fuel sock toss, sidewalk chalk, electric cars, and solar-powered smoothies. The crowd, which was eager for more government action around climate change, gave City Hall the "green finger" by stamping their fingers with green ink and symbolically pointing at City Hall.

Nottingham Fighting Post Office Closures

United Kingdom, 04.11.2007 14:09

Demonstrations have been held this week in Carrington to save the local post office from closure. In the last fortnight, the Save Carrington Post Office Action Group has emerged and has been campaigning to keep the Carrington Post Office [CPO] open. They have urged people in the CPO's catchment area to write letters to the Post Office and Post Watch, asking for the CPO to be considered for further review after the public consultation. The action group has also delivered over 4,000 leaflets and its petition has collected 2000 signatures in just two weeks. In addition to carrying out its own branch assessment report, the group held a couple of demonstrations this week.

Futhermore, a wheelchair-using customer of the Post Office, attempted to travel to the two alternative post offices as suggested by the Post Office to see how accessible they really are. Doreen Sim, who has used CPO twice a week for the last twenty years to pay her bills and collect her pension, says the current journey takes her just 5 minutes from her home along all level terrain and wide pavements...

Aotearoa Indymedia needs your help!

Aotearoa, 04.11.2007 13:09

Aotearoa Indymedia aims to be a space where people feel inspired to read, write and comment on news and events happening across Aotearoa (and the rest of the world). In order to fulfill this aim, the Aotearoa Indymedia Editorial Collective is empowered to enact the Editorial Policy, which mainly means hiding spam, abusive and duplicate posts and comments and cleaning up the newswire (ie - via moving local posts from the elsewhere newswire if they are posted in the wrong place, or fixing up the formatting of posts when requested by the author). The Editorial Collective also writes most of the feature articles (the ones in the centre column, like this), sometimes from scratch and sometimes via collating articles from the newswire (or a mix of both!) Prior to the Police raids of October 15th, the editorial collective had three main editors - all had been editing for some time and so were experienced with what needs to be done. These three did much of the work on Aotearoa Indymedia, helped by the rest of the editorial collective (some of whom have less-regular internet access, others of whom are new, still others who have many projects they are involved in for whom Indymedia takes a low priority). During the raids, two out of those three editors were arrested, and both are currently being held in Auckland Central Remand Prison. As the only one of those three left, I have endeavoured (with help!) to keep Aotearoa Indymedia as up to date as possible with information on the raids and protests, but there are limits to how much an increasingly small collective can do. Now, perhaps more than ever since Aotearoa Indymedia began, we need your help. If you are interested in taking an active role in the Aotearoa Indymedia Editorial Collective, then please email imc-aotearoa-ed@lists.indymedia.org. The process for joining the Collective can be read here. If you spot a duplicate, spam, troll or abusive post, please DO NOT reply to it, but rather email imc-aotearoa-ed@lists.indymedia.org with the URL and the reason you think it should be hidden, and I or one of the other editors will attend to it as soon as possible. You can also frequently find some of us on the global Indymedia IRC server, which is also being used as a regular updating space on the current raids/hearings for Indymedia folks from all over the world. In solidarity, Asher, (Aotearoa Indymedia Editorial Collective)



Dozens of Berwyn High School Students Face Expulsion After Antiwar Sit-In

Chicago, 04.11.2007 07:08

From the newswire: "Over 30 anti-war protestors at Morton West High School in Berwyn face expulsion for a demonstration at the school on Thursday…More than 70 students participated in a sit-in against the Iraq War on All Saint's Day, Thursday, November 1st. It began third hour when dozens of students gathered quietly in the lunchroom at Morton West High School and refused to leave.

"Students report that they were promised that there would be no charges besides cutting classes if they took their protest outside so as not to disturb the school day. The students complied, and were led to a corner outside the cafeteria where they sang songs and held signs while classes resumed.

"The school called the homes of many of the protestors. Those whose parents arrived before the end of school and took their students home, or left before the protest ended at the final bell, received 3-5 days suspension. All others, an estimated 37 received 10 days suspension and expulsion papers. Parents report that [school Superindendent Ben] Nowakowski stated those who are seventeen will also face police charges."

Tacoma Anarchist Bookfair Accused Of Being &quot;Homeland Security Threat&quot;

Portland, 03.11.2007 17:38

At 3 PM, on Friday, November 2nd, the landlord of the building which houses the Pitch Pipe Infoshop received a call from a Tacoma PD lieutenant. He told her that the Infoshop and the Anarchist Bookfair which it is holding this Saturday and Sunday is a homeland security threat and will be monitored by police for the entire weekend. The landlord then approached residents of the building and threatened eviction. As of now, no one is threatened with a sudden eviction.

This is a direct attack on the part of the government against those it disagrees with. The government is attempting to destroy and stop the protests planned for the 9th and 10th of November against the existence of the ICE detention center. It is attempting to shroud the bookfair in a cloud of fear and discourage people from attending. EVERYONE SHOULD STILL ATTEND! We will not allow this attack on our lives from the government.

Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.) Monday 5th November 8pm at the Cube Cinema, Stokes Croft, Bristol - Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.)\\\'..at once matter-of-fact and moving.\\\' blogcritics.orgIn the popular TV show CSI, the drama centers around the vast technological and material resources that smart forensic scientists pour into solving murders. But in reality, if you are poor and female, life (and death) is not like that: Since 1993, 400 predominantly poor young women have been found murdered in the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juarez. Despite appeals from the victims\\\\\\\' families, Mexican authorities have been loath to investigate, leading to one of the most notorious gender-based human-rights violations in the world. In his gripping documentary \\\\\\\'On the Edge: The Femicide in Ciudad Juarez\\\\\\\' by filmmaker Steev Hise explores the murders and the social constructs of gender and class that have allowed the tragedies to continue unimpeded. Bristol Indymedia is pleased to have Professor Gill Hague of Bristol University to introduce the screening and talk a little about the issues. Professor Hague is the director of the Violence against Women Research Group and has worked on these issues for more than 30 years as an activist, a practitioner in domestic violence projects and as a researcher and has been involved in many international projects.

Immigration Raids Create Emotional Trauma and Economic Distress for Children, New Report FInds

Boston, 02.11.2007 17:08

Boston, MA - The Massachusetts Immigrant & Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA) and the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NSWMA) presented a new report by the Urban Institute and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), which examines how recent immigration enforcement actions have affected the wellbeing of children of immigrants in the U.S. The report, Paying the Price: The Impact of Immigration Raids on America's Children, profiles three communities that have recently experienced large-scale worksite raids by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency within the past year, including New Bedford; the other sites are Greeley, Colorado, and Grand Island, Nebraska. On March 6, 2007, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials staged a worksite raid at a Michael Bianco, Inc. factory in New Bedford.



UofO Pacifica Forum invites Nat'l Vanguard (nazi) editor, Nov. 2

The Pacifica Forum is an antiwar or peace discussion forum in Eugene Oregon, based at the university. Tomorrow, November 2, they have invited Mark Weber to speak on the topic"The Israel Lobby: How Powerful is it?". Weber is an extreme right winger who used to be an editor at the racist National Vanguard. Hopefully the Pacifica Forum people were confused about his background and perspective.
Neo-national socialists have never had a pro-peace perspective, and are only worthy of listening to and reading in order to be aware of what the opponents of peace are up to.



Compassionate Collective of Alameda County is Raided by DEA

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.11.2007 16:09

On October 30th, the DEA raided Compassionate Collective of Alameda County, a medical cannabis dispensary located on the 21000 block of Mission Boulevard in Hayward. According to California NORML, "CCAC was by far the largest and most conspicuous dispensary in the East Bay, due in large part to the suppression of its competitors by local regulations, raids and bans." Some patients interpreted the wording in corporate media reports to mean that other dispensaries had been closed by the DEA that day. CCAC's closure could open the door to a new dispensary application in Alameda County - the county's ordinance permits three.

Urewera 16 in court - 2 more bailed

Aotearoa, 02.11.2007 09:09

All 16 people arrested and charged with arms charges on Monday October 15th in nationwide raids appeared in the Auckland District Court on November 1st and 2nd. A 17th person arrested during the raids was charged with cannabis related charges and will appear seperately. During the hearings, a number of the prisoners had name supression dropped (some willingly, some not) and two more were bailed on top of those who were already out. Loud cheers greeted those bailed and others, and many cries of "we love you" echoed through the court over the two days.

On Thursday November 1st, a few new pieces of information were revealed and confirmed. Firstly, that there will be two trials - one for the arms charges, and one for the charges under the Terrorism Supression Act (if consent to lay them is granted by the Solicitor General). Also, the details of which prisoners have had their files referred to the Solicitor General by the Police was confirmed (12 of the 16). It was inferred by the counsel for the crown that there could be a decision by the Solicitor General by the end of next week.

Cases heard on November 1st

A 38 year old Auckland man has interim name supression, and is remanded in custody until December 3rd. The Police have applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

Marama Mayrick, 24, of Hamilton, had her bail extended to December 3rd, although her attendance is excused on that date as long as she is represented by counsel. The Police have not applied to charge her under the Terrorism Supression Act.

Jamie Lockett, 46, of Auckland, is remanded in custody until November 12th, when he will apply for electronic bail (aka home detention). The Police have applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

Tame Iti, 55, of Ruatoki, is remanded in custody til December 3rd, although he will have a bail appeal in the Rotorua High Court on November 7th. If bail is granted, his attendance on December 3rd will be excused as long as he is represented by counsel. The Police have applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

Ira Bailey, 28, of Wellington, was granted bail (not opposed by the crown) to a Wellington address until December 3rd. his attendance on December 3rd will be excused as long as he is represented by counsel. His bail conditions include not to go to Ruatoki, a 10pm - 6am curfew and not to obtain any firearms. The Police have not applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

A male from Ruatoki was granted bail to Ruatoki (not opposed by the crown) to reappear on December 3rd. His attendance on December 3rd will be excused as long as he is represented by counsel. His conditions include reporting to the Whakatane Police Station every Friday and a 10pm - 6am curfew. The Police have not applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

A male from Ruatoki was remanded in custody until December 3rd. He will have a bail appeal in the Rotorua High Court at an as-yet undecided date before then however. The Police have applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

He also applied for a fresh order of name supression, which was also denied. He is remanded in custody until December 3. The Police have applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

Rawiri Iti, 29, of Hamilton, made a fresh application for bail due to a change in circumstances since his initial application was denied. The Judge ruled that there had been no change in circumstances, and so no application for bail was heard. He is remanded in custody til November 23rd, when he will apply for electronic bail (home detention). The Police have applied to charge him under the Terrorism Supression Act.

Emily Bailey, 30, of Wellington, did not make a bail application and is remanded in custody until December 3. The Police have applied to charge her under the Terrorism Supression Act.

Am 6.9.2007 wurde an der Freien Universität Berlin mitten in den Semesterferien und ohne vorherige Diskussion eine Skulptur des Künstlers Volker Bartsch eingeweiht. Die Skulptur wurde von Präsident Dieter Lenzen einer Reihe von FU-Studierenden gewidmet, welche anfang der 50er Jahre aus Ostberlin verschleppt und später in Moskau durch die sowjetische Geheimpolizei hingerichtet wurden. Der Grund waren Widerstandshandlungen in der DDR, von den Behörden als „Spionage" interpretiert. Mittlerweile wurde bekannt: Einer der geehrten Studenten war von 1941-1944 Mitglied der NSDAP, ein anderer war direkt im Auftrag eines westlichen Geheimdienstes unterwegs, drei der Betroffenen waren Mitglieder der antikommunistischen Sabotagegruppe "Kampfgruppe gegen Unmenschlichkeit". Studierende wollen nun eine Diskussion zur Gedenkpolitik an der FU anstoßen.



Happy Halloween!

Portland, 01.11.2007 22:39

Tonight I carved a jack-o-latern from one of the two good pumpkins from the garden. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.
A couple simple reasons, and I'm sure others can add more.
Number one, fear takes a little break on halloween. Those neighbors who you are suspicious of? You go right up to thier door- At night, no less. (well, at least you stand on the sidewalk and send the kids)..
Number two, Everyone fits in on this day, no matter how funny or different you look. It's a true celebration of diversity.
Ok, and it's spiritual, and in tune with the changing seasons and our natural surroundings, etc.
Anyways, it's always been my favorite Holiday..

A Cry To You &amp; The American People – by a local radical

Portland, 01.11.2007 22:39

Well here we are boys and girls. Still stuck in the same rut. Generation after generation. We have won some battles and lost some battles throughout history. But we are still losing this war, miserably I must say. The Empire is still growing. The Constitution is only alive in our hearts, not in practice. We have not achieved real change. I fear the climax of our situation, Americas, and the rest of the world... is rushing up beneath us, and its going to hit us like an explosion of a volcano and shock like an earthquake.

So I am here to discuss two main points. Two points that I think are most important to us in this era of, one may call, depending on your view points - a new world order. So please, think about these following words and leave your thoughts and comments. I only ask that we keep this civil amongst us, no bickering and arguing and trash talking opinions and ideas. Let's look at this from an educated/learning point of view. I am here to talk about problems and solutions among "the movement" and this country.

Portland Car Dealer selling Cars that won't pass DEQ

Portland, 01.11.2007 22:39

I purchased a 1993 BMW 525ia from Affordable Auto Wholesale in Portland on 9/12/07

When I first bought the car, I took it to the clean air station in Gresham, it failed with a hc of 550. I took the car to the dealer to have them fix it. They replaced the catalytic converter (done at Darrel's muffler shop -they do good work) and(Affordable) took it back though DEQ and it passed with a hc of 76, with a CO of 0.000 on 10/3/07 (odd don't you think)

I took my car to a BMW mechanic, who discovered a disconnected vacuum line. He reconnected it, and the car started to idle wildly (constantly revving and finally dying, the exact symptoms the car was displaying when purchased, and was told by the dealer it would be fixed) He checked the codes and stated that the Mass AirFlow Sensor was bad. Yesterday I took my car though the Clean Air Station in Gresham again and it failed at 549, with a CO of 6.265
I wasn't even given a chance to idle more than a few seconds before the car failed.

I called the dealership asking them to fix the car, to meet DEQ standards, they claim that once passed, they are not responsible for further repairs.

I have read the page from the Attorney General, it states that a dealership must fix the car if it fails DEQ tests within 60 days of purchase. Specifically that page also mentions by name Affordable Auto Wholesale.

Video from the SDS Breakaway March on Oct. 27th

Seattle, 01.11.2007 20:08
