'No Justice, No Peace, We Are The Police!'

United Kingdom, 28.01.2008 19:38

On 23rd January, the police federation marched through London. Class War, Fit Watch and the Space Hijackers were there to tell them where to stick their pay rise.

Fit Watch delayed the front of the march and handed out Section 14 notices, while Class War ensured all of the marching cops knew they were not supported.

Meanwhile, the cops showed their true allegiances by allowing a BNP leader to walk at the front of the march, whilst arresting a fit watcher, for trying to join the front of the march.

Bus Rapid Transit Consultation Slammed as 'Con'

Bristol, 28.01.2008 17:38

"...softening the perceived impact of the route for consultation purposes.." "...softening the perceived impact of the route for consultation purposes.." East Bristol Green Party write: Now research by the Green Party, using documents obtained under Freedom of Information laws by the Bristol Cycling Campaign, reveals a carefully planned bid to 'sell' the idea of using the route as a busway, even though it would destroy what is, arguably, Bristol's most popular green asset. The papers show how the Bristol Partnership - a group including the council and business leaders including First Group - seem more concerned with presentation than with providing a sustainable transport system. They say (of using a guided bus system on the cyclepath):"The image can appear more sustainable due to the ability to plant grass between the tracks, which will be useful in softening the perceived impact of the route for consultation purposes."

An interview with Plane Stupid on the nature and future of the influential anti-aviation campaigning organisation

Scotland, 28.01.2008 17:09

Plane Stupid is a well-known and very successful anti-aviation campaigning organisation which regularly catches headlines, and promotes direct action targeting the fastest growing cause of climate change: aviation. The group came together in 2005, when a group of activists disrupted an international aviation conference using rape alarms attached to helium balloons during the key note speech. A group has formed in Scotland, which in January breached the security of Edinburgh airport and blockaded a private jet company that fuels the conspicuous consumption of the very rich. The following is an interview conducted via email with Robbie Gillett, one of the founding members of Plane Stupid.

Protests across the US call for an end to Gaza siege

United States, 28.01.2008 13:37

Over the weekend, protests were held in a number of US cities and towns calling on Israel to end the imprisonment of 1.5 million Palestinians inside Gaza without access to food, safe water, electricity or medical care. Some of the cities participating in the protest actions included Boston; Seattle; St. Petersburg, Florida; Washington, DC; Los Angeles; Portland, Oregon; Eugene, Oregon; Houston, Texas and a number of other cities.

Protesters called for an end to Israel's six-month long siege on Gaza, during which the Israeli forces controlling Gaza's borders have severely curtailed imports and exports of both people and goods – and over the last two weeks have completely sealed the Gaza Strip. The protests took place at several different venues, including in front of the White House in Washington, DC, the Israeli consulates in New York, Los Angeles and Houston, and in a public square in Portland, Oregon and along a road in Eugene, Oregon. Among those who participated in the various rallies were Palestinian-Americans, human rights activists, Jewish supporters of Palestinian rights and many others.

Among the groups represented at the rallies were Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights, Jews for Justice, Jews for Peace, Women in Black, US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, ANSWER Coalition, United for Peace and Justice and others.

Verbotsverfahren gegen baskische Parteien

Germany, 28.01.2008 13:08

Wenn im spanischen Staat Wahlen anstehen, dann macht es sich zum populistischen Wählerfang immer gut, ein paar baskische Parteien zu verbieten ( http://de.indymedia.org/2007/03/172205.shtml). Nun trifft es die Kommunistische Partei der Baskischen Territorien (EHAK/  http://de.indymedia.org/2005/04/112300.shtml) und die antifaschistische Traditionspartei EAE-ANV ( http://de.indymedia.org/2007/05/176713.shtml). Wie viel von Gewaltenteilung und unabhängiger Justiz in Spanien zu halten ist, zeigt sich nicht zuletzt daran, dass die Regierung der Justiz vorgreift und keinen Zweifel an den Verboten lässt. Dass die spanische Justiz mit zweierlei Maß misst, kann auch an den Urteilen des Obersten Gerichtshof gegen den Ex-Parlamentspräsidenten und zwei Fraktionschefs des baskischen Parlaments abgelesen werden. Dass das Batasuna-Verbot, Grundlage all der Vorgänge, vom Menschenrechtsgerichtshof in Straßburg angezweifelt wird, stört in Madrid ohnehin niemanden ( http://de.indymedia.org/2007/12/203234.shtml).

Protest Against ICE Raids, An Act of Love in the Freezing Cold of Boston

Boston, 28.01.2008 00:10

Boston, Mass--The Boston May Day Coalition called for a "speak-out against ICE raids on undocumented migrant workers", in the context of a week of transnational action ending January 26. The International Council of the World Social Forum decided that instead of convening its eighth World Forum this year (2008), it would conduct a global week of action. Considering the USA’s war against immigrant workers and particularly “undocumented” workers, The Boston May Day Coalition chose to respond to the vicious character of recent raids in the state of Massachusetts. The first massive raid was conducted almost a year ago (in March 2007) by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in New Bedford. More desolation and raids in the cities of Nantucket, Chelsea, East Boston, Revere, Somerville and most recently Milford followed this initial raid. The Boston May Day Coalition denounces what appears to be a media strategy to justify ICE raids as a search for “criminals”. The Boston May Day Coalition denounces and condemns all ICE raids against immigrants and calls upon people not to be deceived by this strategy.

Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights Protests Gaza Blockade

Boston, 27.01.2008 18:08

On Saturday, January 26, a group of Israeli peace activists attempted to deliver food and needed medical supplies through the blockade into Gaza. In Solidarity with this event, demonstrations were held around the world, including right here in Boston--or more precisely, Cambridge. Members of the Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights gathered in Harvard Sq. at noon. They numbered well over 100, and stretched a full city block, from Holyoke St. to Dunster along Mass Ave. They stood there in the cold with banners, flags and placards decrying Israel's blockade of Gaza and the latest humanitarian crisis for Palestinians.

Student Activist Leaders Challenged by Administration at Leadership High School

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.01.2008 06:38

In the week leading up to the January 11th national day of action against torture, student organizers with World Can't Wait and the Bay Area Revolution Club spoke in classes and distributed orange armbands at several Bay Area high schools. Larry Everest was invited by students at Leadership High to give a presentation about the abuses that are taking place at Guantanamo Bay. After the presentation, the Administration sent a letter home to all parents of students who attended the event-- stating the school's intention to teach the "other side" of torture, which one of the teachers described as the "Bush Administration's point of view." In addition, school administrators threatened to take students' orange bandanas.

Long-term tenants can be evicted for flimsy reasons without ever seeing a Judge. The law currently only entitles residents to an administrative hearing at which the rule of evidence don’t apply.

Santa Cruz Reclaims Peoples' Parking Lot #4

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.01.2008 08:38

The community of Santa Cruz won a victory on January 23rd in Parking Lot #4, the lot at Cathcart and Cedar.

Last week cops with ticketbooks dispersed the drummers, Food Not Bombs, and anyone loafing, loitering, or lingering with warnings of $100+ fines.



Final nail in Shumacher's coffin

Portland, 26.01.2008 07:38

A federal judge has ordered Schumacher's furriers to pay nearly $97,000 in legal fees to the animal-rights protesters he has accused of destroying his family business.

U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman ordered Gregg Schumacher and Schumacher Furs & Outerwear to cover $43,186 in legal fees to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals; $34,735 to In Defense of Animals; and $18,950 to protester Kevin Mieras, court records show.

Schumacher and his wife Linda sued animal-rights protesters for a relentless campaign of Saturday protests that the couple maintains stepped over the bounds of free speech into crimes and violations of city ordinances.

But Mosman threw out such claims in a series of rulings last year. This week, he signed an order compelling the Schumachers to pay the protesters' legal fees in the case. In his order, Mosman called the facts of the case "extraordinary" but said the Schumachers had abused the legal process."Although the (Schumachers) may have had meritorious claims against people whose names they did not know, or even against the City of Portland," Mosman wrote, "they sued people against whom they had no evidence for $6.6 million, sought to restrict their First Amendment rights, and disparaged their reputations with accusations of criminal conduct, terrorist affiliations and responsibility for 'shutting down' a business whose financial solvency was questionable before the protesting activities began."

WSF Global Day of Action: People Mobilize Locally and Globally for a Better World

Boston, 26.01.2008 00:08

Boston, Mass.—Hundreds of thousands around the world will join forces tomorrow, January 26, 2008, for a historical celebration of social movements and social justice as they take action locally on the Global Day of Action called forth during the World Social Forum (http://wsf2008.net/).

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights while Countering Terrorism has agreed that there are grounds to investigate the New Zealand Government over its conduct during the October 15 raids. This is the first time that a complaint from a group against a nation-state has been accepted by the Rapporteur. The complaint was lodged by lawyers acting on behalf of the Tuhoe nation and some of the accused in the case.

CA Supreme Court Upholds Right of Employers to Fire Medical Marijuana Users

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.01.2008 06:39

On January 24th, the California Supreme Court ruled 5-2 that employers can fire workers for using medical marijuana. The court dismissed a lawsuit brought by Gary Ross under the state's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) that he had been wrongfully denied employment by RagingWire Telecommunications after he had tested positive for past use of marijuana on a urine test. The court ruled that it did not create a general right to use medical marijuana, but only protected patients from criminal sanction for possession or cultivation of marijuana. The court's decision leaves the door open for discrimination against medical marijuana users via drug urine tests.



Critical Mass!

Portland, 25.01.2008 05:46

Bring your bike, a friend, some love, and your biking legs. Celebrate bikes, or just ride with some friends in a mass, or whatever you'd like CM to be - lets do it!

Jan 25th and Feb 29th
5:30pm - Meet up underneath the Burnside Bridge.
6:00pm - Ride on!

Critical Mass is an event typically held on the last Friday of every month in cities around the world where bicyclists and, less frequently, unicyclists, skateboarders, inline skaters, roller skaters and other self-propelled commuters take to the streets en masse. While the ride was originally founded with the idea of drawing attention to how unfriendly the city was to bicyclists, the leaderless structure of Critical Mass makes it impossible to assign it any one specific goal. In fact, the purpose of Critical Mass is not formalized beyond the direct action of meeting at a set location and time and traveling as a group through city streets.
