From Chile to Guantanamo: A Survivor of Torture Speaks Up

Boston, 11.01.2008 22:08

Today marks the sixth anniversary of the first arrival of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, yet Guantanamo is not the first island known for the unlawful abuse and torture of detainees. Island Dawson on the southern tip of Chile is known for its inhospitable, freezing weather, and for many Chileans is also the location of a concentration camp where Pinochet ordered the detention and torture of hundreds of political prisoners. Sergio Reyes, a Boston resident and activist, was 19 years old when he was abducted from his home in Punta Arenas, faced a mock execution in front of his mother, was regularly beaten, electrocuted, and suffered from simulated drowning. Between 1973 and 1976, he was also a political prisoner in a forced labor camp at the now infamous Island Dawson.

Nottingham Job Seekers Face Lie Detectors

United Kingdom, 11.01.2008 12:38

Beginning this month as part of an extended pilot scheme, residents of Nottingham will be subject to Voice Risk Analysis when telephoning to make a claim for Job Seekers' Allowance.

Voice Risk Analysis (VRA) software analyses a person's 'normal' voice and flags up changes in frequency and tone characteristics which may mean the person is lying. The DWP has helped to fund a series of local pilot schemes to study the effectiveness of the technology in reducing so-called "benefit fraud" (which pales into insignificance when compared with tax evasion by the rich). Even amongst those who worry about such things, there is scepticism about this usefulness of this technology as an anti-fraud tool. Mainstream critics say that savings do not necessarily mean the software is accurately pinpointing fraudsters, arguing that genuine claimants may also be deterred from claiming when entitled to benefits.

DC, 11.01.2008 10:09

January 10: On Thursday morning activists affiliated with the Washington Peace Center and others held a vigil outside the main gates of the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia. “We are here as citizen witnesses speaking out as reports continue to reveal the role of the CIA in the rendition of people who are clandestinely abducted, held without charge, denied access to lawyers or loved ones, abused, and tortured in places like Guantanamo and Bagram in Afghanistan...” said Malachy Kilbride, Washington Peace Center board president. News reports have divulged that the CIA has covered up its role in the possible use of the torture technique known as water-boarding by destroying video evidence against apparent congressional opposition.

We approached slowly, but were asking the cops to take it easy on her, it sounded like she was being hurt."

PPRC cites lst Amendment Rights to City Council on Pioneer Square harassment

Portland, 11.01.2008 00:38

Statement of PPRC's Brian Greer to Commissioners today at City Hall:

I am speaking today on behalf of Portland Peaceful Response Coalition to inform you of troubling developments in relation to our exercise of free speech, and to request your consideration of the important issues that are raised thereby.

Portland Peaceful Response Coalition was formed on the evening of 9/11. It initiated a weekly series of demonstrations at the corner of Pioneer Courthouse Square that has continued for more than six years. With support of a strong majority of our fellow-citizens, we exercise "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

In recent weeks, PPRC has been approached by employees of Portland Patrol, Incorporated (PPI) objecting to our use of a battery-operated megaphone and to the use of drums. On December 21st, the City of Portland Noise Control Officer, accompanied by a representative of Pioneer Courthouse Square, Inc., and by a member of the Portland Patrol, informed us that, if we use either the megaphone or drums, individuals will be cited.

Urgent! Transportation Committee hearing this Friday

Portland, 11.01.2008 00:38

Your presence is needed this Friday at a hearing on the proposed legal presence requirement to Oregon driver's licenses.

On December 31st, Oregon Latino leaders presented the DMV with 5,000 signed petitions asking for a delayed implementation date to Governor Kulongoski's Executive Order which requires proof of legal presence to get a new, replacement, or renewal driver's license or ID card. The delay would have provided valuable time necessary to adequately inform the community about the Executive Order. The governor rejected our proposal, and the new rules are scheduled to go into effect on February 4th.

This is the last opportunity to voice our opposition to the Executive Order before it goes into effect! Help make sure that every Oregon driver has the opportunity to take the driving test, be licensed and insured.

Save the Library

Bristol, 11.01.2008 00:38

Marksbury Road library to close from April Marksbury Road library to close from April A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas—a place where history comes to life. Norman Cousinsi love books and reading them writes: Local residents on the Marksbury Road estate in Bedminster have been left stunned at the news that the Council intends to close Marksbury Road library from April, seeking to save £110,000 a year in running costs. Help us save Marksbury Road library in Bedminster. The Marksbury Area Community Association (MACA) has pledged to oppose this proposal, which comes just 5 months after a plan was discussed to build a new library close to the existing site. No explanation has been given to us for this unacceptable U-Turn. Door to door petitioning has already begun, local Councillors have been lobbied and a public meeting is planned for 14 January. The library is an oasis in an area that is seeing huge new housing developments but continues to be starved of resources. Social indicators show that there are high levels of deprivation within the community and MACA has since its inception in 2005, sought to work with Councillors to address some of these challenges. We are particularly angered at the fact that this proposal was made by the city library chiefs without any dialogue with local Councillors, user groups or our community group. The announcement of the closure plan is hidden away in the draft Budget document and was only brought to our attention on 21st December.

On December 20, 2007, Superior Court ordered defendants of the Benning Library lawsuit, Fenty et al, to comply with the ANC, and the Real Property Disposition Economic Analysis Amendment Act, in planning a new library for the Benning community. Plaintiffs, which include several ANC Commissioners from Ward 7, have sued because their library was boarded up for over three years, then torn down. Plaintiffs and concerned citizens throughout the city wonder why these libraries were torn down when the city faces one of the worst adult illiteracy and school drop-out problems in the country. Plaintiffs are fighting to expand library and literacy services in their community, amidst growing mistrust in the community that the libraries will ever be restored.

Sherman Heights Resists Border Patrol Violence

United States, 09.01.2008 14:07

On Saturday, over forty community members in Sherman Heights met in the cold rain and wind to protest the reckless, violent apprehension and beating of a young man by the border patrol the previous day.

According to a witness, two border patrol agents, one in a car and one on foot, were chasing three young men in the vicinity of 28th and L Street Friday morning.... "[The border patrol agent] was just racing... He didnt even care if would run over a kid... He just ran into the sidewalk, that's how reckless he was driving. Somebody could have been crossing the street, he was just driving so reckless. That is what made me angry."

At the demonstration, speakers talked about the toll that border patrol and police violence takes on communities and families, the relationship of this violence to the border and regional and global issues, and the need to organize the community for resistance.

Blumenauer Speech Will Draw Protest to the Bus Project Conference

Portland, 09.01.2008 09:38

Friday, January 11 at 1:30 PM
Montgomery Park, 2701 NW Vaughn St.

Individuals for Justice, Veterans for Peace and other groups will join in a protest calling for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. They are calling on all progressives in Portland to join them.

The protest is directed at Representative Earl Blumenauer who has refused to join in calling for articles of impeachment against George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Blumenauer will present the keynote speech at the Rebooting Democracy Conference sponsored by the Bus Project.

Demonstrators called upon the Bus Project to find a speaker who is more supportive of holding Bush and Cheney accountable for numerous violations of the U.S. laws. When the Bus Project chose not to replace Blumenauer, protesters decided to demonstrate at the conference.

'Parking Lot Panic Law' Used to Disperse Drummers in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 09.01.2008 09:08

On two successive Wednesdays, December 26th and January 2nd, Santa Cruz police officers ordered a peaceful drum circle to leave the parking lot on Cedar Street alongside the Farmers Market. On December 26th, Sargent Dan Flippo stated that the Farmers Market folks had "complained" about the drum circle, however there was no Farmers Market that day. The police are enforcing a new municipal ordinance, which went into effect in mid-November, that activists refer to as the 'Parking Lot Panic Law.' The new merchant-backed law prohibits lingering in a parking lot or garage unless you have a vehicle there (and then only for fifteen minutes). Anything else (waiting in your car for a friend, eating lunch, talking to friends, playing music...) is trespassing, illegal, will get you hassled by Santa Cruz's finest, and, ultimately, fined. Read More | Download a pdf of the ordinance

The Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra stress that the new law and eviction of the drum circle are "merely the newest battle of a war in Santa Cruz. A war against dissent, against the poor, against the homeless, and now against people making music." The Trash Orchestra invite you to play music with them at the Santa Cruz Farmers Market on Wednesday, January 9th at 4pm in solidarity with other musicians and friends. Read More

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the hearing on the motion for a new trial has been moved to January 24, and sentencing has been moved to February 14th. Every time a hearing gets moved it's a frustrating and emotionally trying situation for all of us, as this only prolongs the amount of time that Eric has to spend in Sacramento County Main Jail (which has much worse restrictions and living conditions than a federal facility, for which he is ultimately headed, will have). It also prolongs the wait we have to endure before we can start the appeals process, which can't begin until after sentencing. Please keep writing Eric!

Italy: Racist attack against 250 gypsies in Rome

Portland, 09.01.2008 06:38

Rome. January 4th, 2008. Last night, at about 10 p.m., a devastating fire broke out inside the two sheds of the former Mira Lanza warehouse (each about 500 mts square) in the Marconi area of the city. 250 Rrom citizens had take shelter in the sheds, living in very harsh conditions. The fire broke out suddenly and spread with unprecedented speed throughout the sheds of the derelict warehouses. Some of the Rroms noticed the flames and gave the alarm, allowing all the families, including 100 children, to make their escape. The fire was obviously a case of arson because it broke out in the same moment in both sheds, which stand many meters apart. It is impossible that the flames spread from one shed to the other. What is more, the speed with which the flames developed and spread and the height of the flames are typical of fires caused by Molotov cocktails.

Should You Be On A Government Watch List?

Portland, 09.01.2008 06:38

The words "May pose a suspected threat to National Security" are so vague one can't wonder if that could apply to stopping individuals wanting to fly to an anti-war or environmental protest. Case in point: Currently, International air carriers are responsible for checking passengers against "government watch lists." That will change in 2008.

Subsequently in 2008, under the Federal Government's "Secure Flight Program" the Government will begin not allowing U.S. Citizens on domestic flights until the government has prescreened a passenger's information against "government Watch Lists." The Government states, "Watch Lists" will be used to identify individuals who "may pose" a known or suspected threat to aviation or national security. But what does that mean? "May pose a suspected threat—to national security? U.S. Government officials have called protesters potential terrorists and a threat to national security. The words "May pose a suspected threat... " are so vague one can't help wonder if that could" apply to an individual wanting to fly to an anti-war or environmental protest.
