Education and Life Celebrated in Streets of Annapolis: Despite 26 Arrests, Algebra Project Action a (State) Smashing Success

Baltimore, 07.02.2008 13:08

Annapolis, MD. Bystanders looked on with tight smiles as the crowd of over 400 surged passed them chanting “We don't want your pity, we want money for our city!” Public School students from around the state, but primarily from Baltimore City gathered in Annapolis today to demand that the Thorton education funding remain intact and continue to come into the schools. The Thorton Education Bill is an attempt to level the playing field for Maryland's youth. It helps to compensate for discrepancies between how much a county can bring in in taxes and how much they need where education is concerned. Not surprisingly, Baltimore City needs this more than any county—though we get a relatively small percentage of the whole. Our fearless governor, Martin O'Malley, after promising during elections to make this money available to schools, is now trying to repeal the bill. The Algebra Project jumped on this, realizing that our schools are already struggling for basic necessities like windows and drinking water, and can't afford any more cuts. They did the only logical thing: they organized a series of direct actions; Today's being the most recent. It was also, arguably, the most powerful.

Barriers Go Up at Georgia Avenue ICC Site

Within days of last week's sediment control inspection, barriers were emplaced on the Ga Ave service road where it passes the site. Could these barriers reflect a desire to impede further citizen inspections of ICC site complaince with environmental regulations? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDG5tP4wnVQ

Waitangi Day protests across Aotearoa

Aotearoa, 07.02.2008 04:09

Waitangi Day saw protests in several places across Aotearoa, with Tangata Whenua and Tau Iwi standing together to demand Tino Rangatiratanga and Mana Motuhake. In Waitangi itself, "thousands of tangata whenua, pakeha and tau iwi marched together in the hikoi to the treaty grounds with Tino Rangatiratanga and Mana Motuhake flags flying behind the Kotahitanga flag. A large contingent from Tuhoe was leading the hikoi, including some of the Urewera 17 activists. Key issues raised during this year’s Waitangi Day were the Resource Management Act, the Foreshore and Seabed legislation and the October 15 "anti-terror” raids." [ Tau Iwi Report of Waitangi Day 08 + Photos ] In Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland), members and supporters of the sovereignty group Te Ata Tino Toa gathered today to fly the largest known Tino Rangatiratanga flag above the Auckland Harbour Bridge. A slow procession of cars also went across the Bridge flying Tino Rangatiratanga and Te Mana Motuhake o Tuhoe flags, while a boat went underneath flying a flag. [ Te Ate Tino Toa (TATT) Transcends Tranzit New Zealand's Pettiness + Photos ] Te Whanganui A Tara (Wellington) saw around 30 people take a "Tour Of Oppression" around various sites in the central city. [ Tour of Oppression: Waitangi Day procession in Wellington + Photos ] On the other side of the world, the New Zealand embassy in Berlin, Germany, was spraypainted with "Tino Rangatiratanga" and "Drop the Urewera charges". [ NZ embassy in Berlin Spraypainted ] Waitangi Day also saw the launch of Tu Kotahi - Freedom Fighting Anthems, a double benefit CD. All the money raised will be split between organisations directly supporting those affected by the raids, and also working on consciousness raising around the issue.

William Bergin hits Rock Bottom (More Details on the Killer Cop's Night Out)

Portland, 07.02.2008 01:38

Last week, Portland Indymedia ran an article detailing the curious downfall of officer William Bergin, the cop who tortured and shot Fouad Kaady to death. Bergin, it seems, was arrested almost a year ago, after drunkenly menacing his former girlfriend at around 3 in the morning on March 8, 2007. I want to make it clear that this incident was a serious one, especially given Bergin's record as a killer. I would like to know why this man is still working as an officer of the law. More than that, I want to use Bergin's own testimony to point out that there is a culture of violence, cover-up and dishonesty in the Sandy PD that bears looking into, especially if one is interested in justice for the many people who have suffered violence and injustices at the hands of Sandy police officers and been ignored. So this week, I am going to quote liberally from the Sherwood police report describing his arrest and subsequent behavior and statements to the police.

According to Newton's report: "As I was completing the paperwork for Mr. Bergin asked me if I could just take him to Detox [sic]. He said that he has pulled over plenty of drunken cops and has given them a ride home. I informed him that I had to do my job and that Detox was not an option, he was already arrested. He told me that in Sandy it is still the 'good old boy' system and he could just go to Detox or home. I informed him that I had a job to do and it was nothing personal. He told me that he understood and apologized for trying to mess with me. He told me that it was at least worth a shot."

The problems in Sandy go much deeper than this one man, and the public should know this. As Bergin himself has stated, there is a "good old boy system" in Sandy, that has caused immeasurable suffering for the people of that town. The Fouad Kaady murder has helped to bring this nest of nasties to light, but Mr. Kaady was not their only victim. For years, the people of Sandy have been telling horrific tales of racism, abuse, persecution, and cover-up.

Briana Waters' Trial Date, Feb 11th @ 9:00 am

Portland, 06.02.2008 23:40

Briana Waters' trial is scheduled for February 11th 9:00 am in Tacoma Washington, at the Federal Courthouse on 1717 Pacific Ave.

Briana Waters has been indicted in the arson at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture, specifically for the alleged role as a lookout. Ms. Waters maintains her innocence and pleads not guilty. Briana Waters is facing a mandatory minimum of 35 years. The case is built on the word of two informants, Jen Kolar and Lacey Phillabaum. Although, Ms. Waters attorneys, Robert Bloom and Neil Fox, filed a motion that the government concealed important information and created a fraudulent FBI report. The Judge Burgess has denied the motion in January. The Judge Burgess closed the pretrial, which is our fundamental right to an open and clear process in public court. Now is the time that we must show up in the court room to support the transparency of our judicial system. It is more than our civil liberties at stake in this precedent setting case. We have seen more and more of our civil rights taken away and it is important for us to stand and bear witness to this trial.

Please be at the court at 9am. Judge Burgess starts on time. The trial is expected to go for a month, Monday thru Friday 9am -4pm. Briana Waters asks that there be NO rally or signs outside or inside of the courtroom. Our presence will be the support she needs.

Sanctuary for Immigrant Rights Begins Anew in Chicago Church

Chicago, 06.02.2008 19:08

On January 29, immigrant rights activist Flor Crisóstomo announced that she will refuse to report for deportation as ordered by Homeland Security and will take sanctuary in Adalberto United Methodist Church in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood.

Crisóstomo's decision follows in the footsteps of fellow activist Elvira Arellano, who herself took sanctuary and defied a deportation order for more than a year before leaving sanctuary to embark on a nationwide speaking tour. In the course of the tour, Arrellano was seized, arrested, and deported.

Crisóstomo, a Mexican citizen driven to the U.S. because of NAFTA-driven economic policies, commented about the difficulty of also addressing xenophobic anti-immigrant policies in the U.S.: "They say they expect us to self-deport, but we cannot leave because of what U.S. economic policies have done to destroy jobs in our home countries. That is why the current policy will not end the system of undocumented labor. It will only drive us into worse and worse jobs."

Crisóstomo and Arellano have a shared history of activism besides sanctuary. The two activists also participated in a successful month-long hunger strike to win an immigration continuance.

Action Needed! Save $24 Million for City of Portland Bike Plan

Portland, 06.02.2008 03:39

Recently, the Portland City Council passed a resolution to approve $450 million dollars to fix bridges and streets throughout the city. Rolled into that plan was about an additional $24 million for bike safety and bike boulevards.

Most notably for cyclists, it would fund:
* 114-miles of new low-traffic Bicycle Boulevards
* Safer Routes to Schools for elementary and middle school kids
* Safety improvements to dangerous intersections
* New sidewalks
* SmartTrips programs that promote sustainable transportation options

It was an ambitious and forward reaching bike strategy for our city. It passed and then the Oregon Petroleum Association got involved. The plan was then blocked. This is where you come in...

At Last! Direct Action Against the War Re-emerges

DC, 05.02.2008 23:09

After more than a decade of military aggression and genocidal sanctions, on March 19, 2003, the United States launched it's most recent attack against the people of Iraq. The following day, the people of the world took to the streets in protest. More than 20,000 turned out in San Francisco to take part in coordinated, nonviolent direct actions which shut down the Financial District of the city. Additional targets included military recruitment centers, the Bay Bridge and the Federal Building. Actions continued on March 21 and in the end more than 2,200 people were arrested with virtually all charges being dropped.



RATS II

DC, 05.02.2008 23:09

National Park Service (NPS) and D.C. officials have met to deal with the rat infestation problem in the Dupont Circle Park. We wish them well, but doubt that effort will go anywhere. The NPS and the U.S. Park Police control the Park, and the District the land around it. Each has a hands-off policy regarding the other’s turf, and nothing ever gets done. The rats recognize no such boundaries, and roam freely from one to the other all the time.



Protests at Major Democratic Candidates' Bay Area Offices Today

DASW intends to use humor and visuals to call into question the supposed "anti-war" credentials of candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Protesters will gather at 5pm in San Francisco's U.N. Plaza and in Oakland's Frank Ogawa Plaza for marches to Clinton's and Obama's campaign headquarters in SF and Oakland.

The OTHER Presidential Primary

Boston, 05.02.2008 21:09

As we Massachusetts voters look out on the political horizon, we witness an incredible dumbing down of our democracy. Instead of seeing potential leaders who speak clearly to the real issues that face us, we see games of showmanship, charm and style, and a burying of issues beneath mountains of fluff. Instead of hearing about real solutions to the economic nightmare facing most of us, we get more of the same absurd policies – like one-off tax cuts and magical stimulus packages that will somehow erase our housing, credit card, student loan and medical debts, not to mention crushing federal, state, and local government debts. Instead of hearing about the mounting ecological crises facing our communities, our nation, and the world, and the deep societal changes required to stave them off, and the small time window for action, we hear about technological fixes and consumerist advances that remove the responsibility off of our individual and collective shoulders.

NYPD Shills Terror Bill (Indypendent)

“When air monitors have been outlawed, only outlaws will have air monitors!”

The slogan, which has become the unofficial rallying cry of an ad hoc coalition of labor unions, environmental groups, elected officials and community activists, was environmental activist Bob Gulack’s reaction when he heard a report about the New York City Police Department’s plan to require a permit for any independent environmental sampling used in the city.

They invoked King’s message of racial equality while focusing on present-day race relations, including the anti-immigrant sentiment espoused by CNN anchor Lou Dobbs, the NYPD shooting death of Sean Bell and the Jena Six case. The Indypendent caught up with some of the marchers, who discussed how they connected King’s message to present day struggles.

Ward Connerly's &quot;Super Tuesday for Segregation&quot;

United States, 05.02.2008 12:08

By David A. Love, the Black Commentator: Ward Connerly, that high profile opponent for affirmative action and Black water carrier for the new Jim Crow, has returned. He wants to eliminate affirmative action everywhere, and make a buck at the same time... Connerly's "Super Tuesday for Equal Rights" is an effort to promote ballot initiatives throughout the country that would eliminate tax dollars to affirmative action programs based on race and gender. He has targeted five states for this year's November ballot -- Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma -- all of which have relatively low numbers of people of color. In the absence of a determined and coordinated campaign to quash his efforts, he might succeed in taking us back to the future we know too well. Article first published in The Black Commentator.

Critical Mass has fun and stops by the auto show

Portland, 05.02.2008 01:38

This last Fridays Critical Mass , a monthly bicycle ride with a history of police harassment resulting in no fun and small turn outs, starts out with 60 plus riders, a human pyramid, a bitchen sound system, and pays a visit to the auto show.

We made it to the auto show and grouped up outside the main door. A good sized banner was unfolded and held up for all to see that were making their way into the auto show. People laid on their backs and made like they were pedaling.



Climate Change &amp; Justice Organizers crash Auto Show

Portland, 05.02.2008 01:38

On Friday night, just hours before critical mass visited the auto show, two climate change and social justice organizers entered the auto show with informational fliers and "Art not Oil" art in hand. Using guerilla media tactics, the two aimed to provide the opportunity for car makers and consumers alike to consider the true costs of oil.

One handout titled, "Buying a New Car: Safety Should be Your Number One Priority" listed the things that oil dependence endangers, including our economy, our environment, human rights, and national security. This handout was left on dash boards, in glove compartments, under visors and on the car floor, of almost all of the cars and trucks on the floor of the convention center.

The action was coordinated to call out the auto-makers for greenwashing, and put pressure on the companies for claiming to be green while they continue to produce loads of new gas-guzzlers and actively fight against government regulated fuel standards and other policies that would help fight climate change. This action was also part of Global Exchange's Freedom from Oil campaign, which also visited the LA and Detroit Auto Shows in recent months.

Richard Stallman on &quot;Copyright vs. Community&quot; at Cabrillo College

Santa Cruz, CA, 04.02.2008 04:39

Free Software Foundation founder Richard Stallman will be speaking about "Copyright vs. Community in the Age of Computer Networks" on Monday, February 4th at Cabrillo College in Aptos. "Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press," Stallman said. "But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it... if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright-to promote progress, for the benefit of the public-then we must make changes in the other direction."
