Rossport: Another Season of Resistance

United Kingdom, 27.11.2007 07:08

Since 2000 the small rural community of Rossport, County Mayo, Ireland have been engaged in an epic battle trying to prevent Shell from building a potentially devastating onshore gas refinery and high pressure pipeline in their remote and environmentally sensitive region. Despite Shell’s status as one of the world’s largest multinationals and it’s enjoyment of the full support of the Irish state, the spirited and effective resistance of the local community means that four years after the refinery was intended to be fully operational, the project is still in its infancy.

For many different reasons the struggle is truly inspiring. The Shell to Sea campaign is fought on a multitude of levels, from the international political arena, to on the ground at the daily picket at the proposed refinery site. It has been an eventful seven years and this autumn has been no exception. Over the past few months direct action against the development has included national days of action attended by hundreds of people from around Ireland, community led direct action preventing preparatory pipeline work and regular blockading of trucks entering the refinery site by those attending the daily picket. Also during this period, campaigners were ordered to leave the two year old Rossport Solidarity Camp. Meanwhile the project has met renewed opposition from NGO’s, including the Irish National Trust, who recently spoke out publicly against the project and outlined their intention to challenge its legitimacy in the European courts.

And of course, where there is resistance, repression follows shortly after. The local court sessions have become increasingly dominated by Shell to Sea cases and protesters have been subject to dubious convictions and excessively harsh sentences, including one woman being sentenced to three months in prison for her part in a peaceful lock-on blockade. As winter sets in resistance continues. The rest of the article outlines the significant events of the last few months in more detail…

Posties Await Ballot Result

United Kingdom, 27.11.2007 07:08

This summer and autumn, Merseyside postal workers have been on the front line of action against Royal Mail's proposed new contracts, which threaten jobs, pensions and working conditions, whilst opening the door to a sell-off of the postal service. Now they're waiting for the ballot on the Communication Workers Union's sell-out agreement, and pondering their next move.

&quot;No Tesco's&quot; campaigners march on Mill Road

United Kingdom, 27.11.2007 07:08

Several hundred people (estimates range from 250 to 800) marched down Mill Road in Cambridge today to show their opposition to Tesco's plans to open an "Express" store. Many sent reports on the event:

According to the campaign over 4000 people have signed a petition, and a remarkable 1100 people sent in written objections to the City Council regarding Tesco's planning applications. A poll in the local Cambridge Evening News suggests 75% of people across the city are opposed to the proposed increase in Tesco's dominant position in Cambridge. The multinational giant already controls 51% of the grocery market here - putting us in the top 10 Tesco-dominated places in the UK. According to a recent Competition Commission report such dominance - surprise, surprise - has a negative impact on the consumer.

Pease Tradeport: Gateway to Torture and Illegal Execution

New Hampshire, 26.11.2007 18:09

The latest NH Gazette (Nov 16, 2007) cites an eye-witness "bird watcher of our acquaintance" as noting a highly unusual plane landing at Pease Tradeport in Portsmouth, NH and entering the Pan Am hanger on October 31st. The witness wrote down the tail number of the Lockheed L-100, and traced its history and ownership. He found that European Parliament investigators determined that the same plane that landed at Pease had been used to carry out "Extraordinary renditions" for the CIA.

I am proud of all the accomplishments of Carlitos. In only a few years, we have provided a venue for many organizations to meet, many collectives to get started, many artists to express themselves and many activists to convene and network. We have provided a venue for people to learn, reflect upon and analyze issues that we sometimes overlook. We have provided a place for people to fall in love, to get a job, to get an apartment, to find information, to come up with ideas, and to meet people they might not have otherwise met during the course of their life.

Despite Cold Starbucks Still Feels Resistance on BND 2007

United States, 26.11.2007 10:07

Despite the wickedly cold weather (below freezing, windy, and snowy), one lone protester still came to the Kick Starbucks Out event at the Smoky Hill Starbucks. For three hours in the cold, I stood on the sidewalk outside the Starbucks with a simple sign saying shame that pointed towards the Starbucks. I told people how Starbucks coffee and chocolate was sourced from farms that used slave labour and even cited evidence but the majority of them decided to mindlessly continuing buying their Starbucks. read more

Report from Amman

Rogue Valley, 26.11.2007 06:09

Dear Friends,

As many of you know I have just returned from Amman, Jordan, where I spent 3 weeks documenting stories for the Collateral Repair Project. I went there with my friend and the founder of CRP, Sasha Crow. In Amman, we met with and were accompanied by our Iraqi counterpart, Faiza Alaraji, herself a refugee from Baghdad.

I will be giving a "Talk Back" on this experience on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 7 pm. at SOU in Stevenson Union, Room 330. I hope many of you can attend.

WWII Memories of Baltimore's Locust Point

Baltimore, 26.11.2007 05:08

Today, my old neighborhood of Locust Point, on Baltimore’s south end, is going through some radical changes. It is being yuppified! When I was a kid, during WWII, however, it was a working class bastion. The picture of John L. Lewis of the United Miner Workers could be found on the walls of some of the 24 taverns in the area. The stevedores dominated the community and the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) was its primary anchor.

Youth on the Move Gives Bronx Cheer to NYPD School Cops (Indypendent)

NYC, 24.11.2007 22:08

The video may be the only public record of how students feel about this force. “The youth are the ones who really know what is happening in the schools,” said Chloe Dugger, field organizer for the NYCLU’s Police Accountability Project. Dugger said that is why the NYCLU supplied Youth on the Move with cameras to make the 4-minute film in July during three workshop sessions with a documentary filmmaker. While students are heavily affected by the agents, Dugger said they have no way to file a complaint if an agent behaves abusively or inappropriately. || NYC School Security by the Numbers

Jackson County Funding - Town Halls Report

Rogue Valley, 24.11.2007 03:09

On November 21, 2007 a report was made to Jackson County Commissioners. The presentation was made in the Jackson County courthouse by citizen volunteer Lynn Howe via a powerpoint slide show.

Lynn Howe makes the report available to the Rogue IMC. She writes, "Here is the town hall report we handed out and would love it if you could distribute. Here are all the written comments we collected as well which are terrific themselves and you can also distribute those."
