Protest to Free the Jena 6
November 7, 2007 - Olympia residents gathered at the gates of the Port of Olympia tonight to protest the return of military vehicles from the war in Iraq. The military vehicles are part of the Stryker Brigade from nearby Fort Lewis. Olympia residents came out tonight to continue protesting military shipments through the port that began in May 2006.
November 8, 2007 — Members of Olympia Port Militarization Resistance (OlyPMR) blocked several convoys of military combat vehicles called Strykers beginning late last night and continuing into the morning. Dozens of protesters blocked the road with their bodies as one convoy after another exited the Port of Olympia. In each case, the convoys eventually passed after police shoved and struck protesters with batons and dragged them from the road in order to clear the way.
An unannounced wildcat strike was called to push the administration of Maersk (headquarters in Tacoma) to allow union workers to join the union of their choice instead of the union the company requires them to be members of,Securitas, which doesn't provide or bargain for workers' basic needs.

For the second time this year, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette printed the wrong election results yesterday. They made a similar mistake after the September "preliminary elections." Some supporters of challenger Grace Ross were upset, because both times the T&G listed Ross as doing poorly, when in fact both times she did pretty well. Read more>>
WALK AGAINST WARMING
Students at Fresno City College held a Free Speech celebration today. They are fighting for the right to hand out flyers to their fellow students, read poetry that is not censored, and to hold a banner for whatever cause they believe in.
Although the closure of Franklin shelter is on hold, and the massive West End redevelopment plans appear to be on hold after the emergency sale of DC land for it was overturned, DC is still trying to unload libraries, schools, etc al over town. On Nov 7, residents let Carol Schartz have an earful. Audio 6 min 58 sec: http://dc.indymedia.org/usermedia/audio/1/public_property_hearing.mp3
Most elections talk lately focuses on votes that are still a year away, but state polling booths were open across the country yesterday with state legislatures and ballot initiatives in the balance. In Virginia, long a Republican strong-hold, Democrats gaining control of the state senate for the first time in a decade, their victories cementing the impression that the Old Dominion state is changing political colors. As Darby Hickey reports, traditional local issues of schools and taxes have been overshadowed by rhetoric about unauthorized immigrants, especially in the bellwether region of Northern Virginia.
With damn near every white supremacist in the country swearing by Rep. Ron Paul during his presidential run and a few anti-war activists on our side too stupid to pay closer attention to the guy as they blindly ignore everything but his anti-war stance, it was only a matter of time before we got to him. Thing is, we had to do more than just complain about the usual suspects at Stormfront suppoting him. Sure it is something to note, but if Paul isn't being receptive, anything they have to say is pretty much irrelevant anyway. He just became receptive, and just in time for him to come to our stomping grounds this weekend in Philly. Stormfront webmaster Don Black donated $500 to his campaign - and Rep. Paul isn't giving it back. Well, Ronnie, you just killed your run. Stormfront is bad news for any politician who is supposed to represent people of all races, and if you can't see that or even try to kep these people at a distance, the rest of us will most certainly keep you there. For the record, this is not the only thing of note about Rep. Paul that suggests he is a little too confy with America's fascists. Norm Singleton, Rep. Paul's legislative director, has been known to hang with well know anti-Semite and Washington insider Joseph Sobran, a guy who among other things, one complained of "a more or less official national obsession with a tiny, faraway socialist ethnocracy." - a line that helped get him canned from National Review. We doubt that we are going to spend too much time on Ron Paul, because he won't be in the race long, but it is good to take note of this clown. Mad Props to LoneStarTimes.com for finding this…
Serbian Nazis from informal organization “Nacionalni stroj” (National formation) tried to march at Novi Sad, capital of northern Serbian province Vojvodina, a multinational and multi confessional region famous for its peaceful coexistence of different ethnic minorities and religions. Minor political parties influential in that region (social democrats and liberals), together with NGOs organized anti-fascist rally in order to prevent Nazis from marching in Novi Sad. Anti-fascist action Novi Sad (with tight links with social-democrats) organized a separate block within the protest. That block of radical anti-fascists was made of mixture of anarchists, anarcho-syndicalists, commies, queers, punks and alike… Full story at Infoshop News.
Updates on the No Borders Camp
11/8 Judge Sharon "Killer" Keller needs to be taken out of office
No Borders Camp went into full swing today with the successful set up of the border action camp. It started off as two seperate rallies one on the American side in the city of Calexico California and another on the Mexican side in the city of Mexicali the state capital of Baja California at the border crossing. Both rallies marched down the border wall with the intent of meeting up ,where the wall finally ends, but were met with a wall of law enforcement. Both rallies stopped and set up camp with out meeting up but with no movement on the part of law enforcement to remove them. With a circle of Border Patrol, California State Troopers, and Homeland Security the camp quickly setup bathrooms, medical facilities, a media lab, and a tent city complete with drinking water, music, and food. At the end of the day everyone was exhilirate and in high spirits. All members of the camp were working together and a ladder was set up against the border wall to communicate with the action camp on the Mexicali side. It was sumed up best by someone I over heard talking about today's events as saying "I love it when a plan comes together"
Over 25,000 people in SW target climate change. South West Climate Explosion - Over 25,000 people in SW target climate change. Roger James of Oxfam Southwest writes: SW Campaigners today welcomed the news that the Government will introduce the first legal obligation to drive down carbon emissions of any country in the world as a new SW survey reveals a massive surge in community activity across the region to meet the challenge of climate change...The survey carried out by Friends of the Earth with funding from the South West Regional Assembly shows that there are well over 250 community groups in the region who are tackling climate change. Between them these involve over 25,000 people, giving their time and effort almost entirely voluntarily. While many of these are established branches of national organisations, over 80 of them have formed since 2005, mostly as independent groups. This survey backs up the I Count campaign, the UK's largest climate change campaign, with its new online I Count Community Groups Map which also highlights growing activities undertaken all over the UK.

Central in tomorrow's election is the issue of the tax cap. A significant campaign exists to force taxes to not increase more than inflation. This is the wrong approach, because budget items should be considered individually on their own merits and not capped arbitrarily. Update: Dover passed the tax cap.
Brad Will was a New York-based independent journalist who was killed on Oct. 27, 2006, while covering a teacher-led social uprising in the impoverished southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. Before his death, Will, a freight-hopping, guitar-playing activist, had spent years on the frontlines of countless movements from efforts to save squats and community gardens in NYC's Lower East Side to engaging in “tree-sits” for weeks at a time high in the canopy of Oregon’s endangered old-growth forests. This year he was remembered on the anniversary of his death, and in Day of the Dead and All Saints Day celebrations across the continent.

Early in the morning of Wednesday, November 7th, activists opposed to UC Santa Cruz's Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) launched a tree-sit in redwoods near Science Hill. UCSC plans to develop the occupied site into a new Biomedical Sciences Facility. The facility would be the first project under the University's plan to develop 120 acres of forest in order to accommodate 4,500 new students.
Dal 21 luglio 2001 in poi la giustizia e la politica hanno cominciato la revisione della storia: per sei lunghi anni tutto questo è serpeggiato nelle aule di tribunale mentre la voce collettiva si affievoliva, un processo di rimozione collettiva che ha fatto sì che in molti dimenticassero che Genova non è stata solo il terrore in divisa, ma anche e soprattutto la forza e l'energia di un movimento. Centinaia di migliaia di persone unitesi a Seattle, pur nelle loro diversità, hanno osato pensare e proporre un mondo diverso,un mondo più umano, equo e solidale,"un altro mondo è possibile"era il sogno comune, un sogno che in quei giorni si è trasformato nell'incubo di una mattanza senza precedenti, un sogno stroncato dalla realtà delle manganellate, delle cariche cilene, da ordini ed azioni tutt'altro che improvvisate sui quali è calato il solito silenzio di stato. Appuntamenti:

Neuquén: tensión en Picún Leufú y posible desalojo en Villa La Angostura
The US Senate Judiciary Committee voted on November 6th to support Bush's nominee for attorney general, Michael Mukasey. A key vote in the Judiciary Committee was that of San Francisco's Dianne Feinstein. Before Feinstein came out for Mukasey, he appeared to be unable to get enough votes to get out of committee due to his refusal to declare water-boarding a form of torture. Several protests against Mukasey have taken place in San Francisco.

The Solicitor-General, David Collins, announced at 4pm Thursday that he would not be granting permission to the Police to lay charges under the Terrorism Supression Act for any of the 12 people they had applied for. He said that while he felt that the Police had acted properly, after reviewing hundreds of pages of transcripts and video evidence, he felt there was not the required evidence to proceed with charges under the TSA. All 16 arrestees still face arms charges. The three remaining prisoners from Wellington have a bail appeal in the Auckland High Court at 2:15pm Friday. Police are not opposing bail for any of those remaining in prison, except for Tame Iti and a second person.

In dem palästinensischen Flüchtlingscamps Nahr al-Bared im Nordlibanon tobte von Mai bis September 2007 ein Krieg zwischen der libanesischen Armee und der Fatah al-Islam. Über 400 Menschen wurden getötet, 30'000 mußten fliehen. In den sechs Wochen zwischen dem Sieg der libanesischen Armee und der Rückkehr der ersten Flüchtlinge raubten Soldaten das Lager aus, und zerstörten im Anschluß fast alle Gebäude. Die Flüchtlinge dokumentierten ihre erneute Flucht und das Ausmaß der Zerstörung in drei Kurzfilmen.
