"Occupation Watch 2003" profiles the work of the Baghdad Occupation Watch Center set up by Code Pink during 2003, before and after the US invasion of Baghdad. Listen to Iraqis describe life under occupation, see the conditions they are living under, as they compare the US occupation with oppression under Saddam and the British. And this was *before* Abu Ghraib and the Fallujah aftermath...

Independent Presidential candidate Ralph Nader will speak at Siena College in Loudonville (Rt. 9) on Thursday Oct. 7th. Program starts at 11:15 AM. Nader will be speaking on the need to bring the troops home from Iraq. Peter Camejo, his Vice-Presidential candidate, will be in the Capital District on Friday, October 22nd. On the first prsidential debate, which he was excluded from, Nader said: "Neither President Bush or Senator Kerry have an exit strategy for the war in Iraq and both of them say we're going to win the war in Iraq—which means an endless occupation. We didn't hear anything about the Israel/Palestine conflict; we didn't hear anything about global arms control in the broader sense; we didn't hear anything about the global trade treaties—WTO and NAFTA—nor did we hear anything about the need to do something about the military budget of the Pentagon, which is so wasteful."

Protest the Death of Democracy and Water Rights Saturday, October 2, 3:30 pm Highland Park Municipal Building The Citizens of Highland Park have no voice in running the city--their mayor and city council have had their power taken away by a governor-appointed dictator-Ramona Pearson. Pearson has hired people from an out of state, pro-privatization consulting firm called the Mercer Group. She pays these people an enormous amount of money (approximately $300,000 for two part time employees) to run Highland Park into the ground. The dictator and her cronies in the Mercer Group are charging people the highest rates in the country for the most basic and essential ingredient of life, water. People are recieving water bills that start in the thousands of dollars per 3 month period. If they cannot pay, they are shut off from access to clean water in their homes. If they still cannot pay, the city places the amount on the tax rolls. When people cannot pay these taxes, the state takes the house under tax foreclosure laws.
West Papuan activist John Rumbiak is visiting New Zealand to publicise the Indonesian military repression of West Papuans. He is going to be speaking at a series of public meetings. West Papua is facing the same repression East Timor used to face.
On Tuesday, September 28, I went to a Pearl Jam concert in that hideous refuge of corporate advertisement that is the Fleet Center. I hate the Fleet, not only because it represents corporate supremacy over communal space, but also because, honestly, the acoustics are just terrible. Once upon a time I was a huge Pearl Jam fan, back when I first moved to Texas for college and decided to make my political stance. Those were the days when I connected with Pearl Jam’s anger in trying to express frustration over the flaws and injustice of a system run by the self-serving powerful and their ignorant zealots. But my anger subsided and so did my love for Pearl Jam. My activism didn’t wane and finally found its home in three years of activism with Amnesty International, where I did my humble share of demonstrations and public education.
Een grote demonstratie en manifestatie tegen de regering en het beleid staat voor deze zaterdag op de agenda. Hiervoor is breed gemobiliseerd, onder andere met gratis treintickets voor vakbondsleden (FNV en CNV) en Keer-het-Tij bussen uit het hele land. Het programma op de Dam start om elf uur. Rond twaalf uur start de demonstratie naar het Museumplein, waar de manifestatie van de vakbonden om tien uur start met een voorprogramma. Tegelijkertijd is er ook een groot aantal alternatieven om te demonstreren met Keer het Tij of de vakbonden. Zo is er een oproep voor flexwerkers, zwartwerkers en migranten om gezamenlijk te demonstreren in een blok. Ook is er een oproep voor een anarcho-blok en een oproep voor een "betoging tegen de politiek" door de volkswijken. Aan de andere kant zijn er ook studenten die betaald gaan demonstreren. Zie voor meer achtergrondinformatie ook de volgende artikelen: [ 1 | 2 | 3 ]. Ook vanuit je luie stoel kan je meedemonstreren, maar je kan natuurlijk ook posters plakken in je eigen wijk met de speciale Loesje actieposters. Tijdens de demonstraties zendt Radio ZwartRood Actief live over het internet een programma uit over de acties [ stream 40kb | 80kb ]. Er is een oproep om informatie door te bellen voor de radio en nieuws ook op Indymedia.NL te plaatsen.

Reverend Billy exorcises the evil from Halliburton
(from the Open Newswire): "On the Debates of September 30, 2004: I felt like I was watching the debate between Nixon and JFK. John Kerry was slick, sharp, and knew what he was talking about. President Bush looked like a buffoon- stumbling over his words, blanking out...what a disastrous situation for the President. Kerry will beat him in November." "Kerry is sugar free bush. Even more scary because he's smarter and has the ability to deceive while pursuing essentially the same policies." [Read More] "John Kerry finally showed America what he's made of in his first debate with George Bush ... the President evaded most of the questions, stopped and stuttered, and stumbled over his talking point notes. " [Read More] "While the usual suspects in the corporate media, operations like CBS or NBC, showed overwhelming viewer poll results favoring Kerry, NPR reporters like Scott Horsley were 'not sure.'"

Just looking out for you revolutionaries
Daniel Gross is the lead organizer in the ongoing IWW IU/660 effort to establish the only unionized Starbucks in the United States. He’s a worker at the 36th and Madison Starbucks in New York City, the immediate focus of the campaign. During a demonstration in front of his workplace during the RNC, Daniel was arrested along with co-worker (and union supporter) Anthony Polanco. He now faces a trial in October, the most serious charge being resisting arrest. Left Hook’s Derek Seidman recently had a chance to catch up with Daniel Gross to find out more about his predicament and the state of the union campaign.

CAN TV, the fleet of Chicago's public access TV channels (which airs Chicago Indymedia's TV show), has spent most of 2004 in funding battles for its future -- first with the negligent company RCN regarding dues, then over a proposed funding ordinance introduced in May by Alderman Bernard Stone. On September 29, the Chicago City Council approved a version of the ordinance which would add a portion of the city's cable franchise fee to CAN TV's budget. Without this win, CAN TV would likely have faced serious cutbacks and layoffs. Read more.

Chiapas based Poet and historian John Ross will speak in Traverse City on October 12 and Grand Rapids on October 13. Ross is currently touring the U.S. with his new book, Murdered by Capitalism: A Memoir of 150 Years of Life and Death on the American Left (Nation Books, 2004). Ross has written extensively on Latin America for Noticias Aliadas (Lima, Peru), Texas Observer, San Francisco Bay Guardian among others, and has been in direct action in both Iraq and in Palestine. This latest book is a “unique fusion of personal memoir and lively history ... a fandango where Che Guevara, William Burroughs, Billie Holiday, and Subcomandante Marcos might feel right at home.”
John Kerry missed many an opportunity to point out Bush foreign policy and homeland security failures during last night’s debate at the University of Miami. Kerry missed so many that it’s possible to sort them into three kinds of missteps: (1) failure to more fully cite Bush errors; (2) failure to more fully respond to Bush falsehoods and omissions; and (3) failure to exploit openings due to constraints imposed by his own record.
