Preteratentante...

...Iu denuncas esti torturita kaj politikistoj kaj publikaj institucioj petas de li pruvi tion. Se li ne kapablas pruvi, ili taksas la aferon senkulpa. Ŝajne ili ne vidas en tiu viktima senkapablo denuncon pri ili mem, ĉar ĝuste pro tio, se ni pririgardas la aferon logike, oni povas esti torturita: pro la absoluta nedefendpova situacio senkapabliganta lin prezenti pruvojn. Estas, do, sarkasmo ke la politikistoj petas pruvojn al la torturito estante ili (la leĝdona potenco) la nuraj kulpantoj, unue, pri la torturoj kaj, due, pri la nepruveblo. Rifuĝi en la pruvpeton al la viktimo estas la solvo de politikisto nevolanta solvi la aferon...

Reclaim the Steps? War for Square Heating Up

Scotland, 13.02.2008 15:09

Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow is famous for two things. There's an equestrian statue wearing a traffic cone and it's where skaters, goths and emo kids hang around. In recent years this has come into conflict with our new conference-friendly city image.

Nuevo ataque a las libertades pol�ticas y sociales

Euskal Herria, 13.02.2008 15:08

Los �ltimos episodios de represi�n por parte del Estado Espa�ol han venido de mano del juez de la Audiencia Nacional Baltasar Garz�n y del Tribunal Supremo. A las ilegalizaciones de EAE-ANV y EHAK han seguido la detenci�n de 14 miembros de la Mesa Nacional de Batasuna . El objetivo no es otro que acallar en las pr�ximas elecciones generales la voz de la Izquierda Abertzale.

Tanto desde la propia Izquierda Abertzale como desde otros sectores pol�ticos y sociales se denuncia que detr�s de esta estrategia est�n los intereses electorales del PSOE que quiere rentabilizar este "�xito" policial para ganar m�s votos. En el �ltimo a�o el Estado Espa�ol ha detenido a 110 personas pertenecientes a partidos pol�ticos y organizaciones sociales, entre ellas Haika-Segi, las implicadas en el sumario 18/98 o los diferentes procesos contra Batasuna,... se est� criminalizando, persiguiendo y castigando la actividad pol�tica; no hay m�s delito, pero los principales partidos espa�oles han convertido la defensa de la independencia y la autodeterminaci�n en delito.

En respuesta a estos ataques la Izquierda Abertzale est� realizando diferentes movilizaciones entre las que destaca la huelga convocada para el jueves 14 de febrero (|Huelga: cartel y cu�as de audio|). No se ha llegado a un acuerdo entre los principales sindicatos vascos por lo que habr� diferentes movilizaciones para denunciar la estrategia de ilegalizaci�n.

Zerfallene Gesellschaft, Justiz, Nazis

Germany, 13.02.2008 15:08

 Vor einem halben Jahr erschien der erste Bericht über Gardelegen, einem kleinen Provinzstädtchen im Norden Sachsen-Anhalts. War uns beim letzten Mal daran gelegen, einen Einblick in die Mentalität und den Alltag einer kleineren Stadt in Ostdeutschland zu geben, werden wir diesmal zum einen über in der Zwischenzeit stattgefundene Naziaktionen berichten, zum anderen aber anhand zweier Gerichtsurteile und -verfahren sowie staatlicher Opferhilfe die Rolle staatlicher Institutionen und ihrer Realität im Zusammenhang mit rechtsextremistischer Gewalt beleuchten.

Neue Verhaftungswelle im Baskenland

Germany, 13.02.2008 15:08

Der spanische Ermittlungsrichter Baltasar Garzón geht weiter gegen die baskische Linke vor. Am Montag ließ der Richter des Nationalen Gerichtshofs bei 19 Durchsuchungen erneut 14 Führungspersonen der linken Unabhängigkeitsbewegung verhaften. Sie gehörten zum Teil der Kommunistischen Partei der Baskischen Territorien (EHAK) und der 80jährigen Traditionspartei Baskisch-Patriotische Aktion (EAE-ANV) an, deren Aktivitäten er am Freitag "vorläufig" suspendieren ließ (2). Sie dienten der 2003 in Spanien verbotenen Partei Batasuna (Einheit) als "Tarnorganisationen" und somit den "Zielen" der Untergrundorganisation ETA, behauptet er. Noch vor einem Jahr, unter dem Eindruck einer Waffenruhe der ETA, hatte er keine Hinweise für ein Verbot gesehen.

DC, 13.02.2008 13:10

Recruitment Keeps the Illegitimate War Going – Bring it to a Halt: Feb 15, 8202 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 4-6pm Last week, the Commander of the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, (USAREC) asked Senators to change the law so that parents would no longer "opt out" of high school lists forwarded to the military. He said access to student information is critical to military recruiting. This is outrageous. We're on the street. JOIN US!

Workers Get A Voice! BIG win for S. Oregon!!

Rogue Valley, 13.02.2008 09:09

Oregon's Jackson County Library System employees get to have a voice at work. In a HUGE victory for working people Jackson County Library employees will be union. With SEIU Local #503 library workers have a voice at work, again. The right of association, that most important universal human right, has been declared the law in Southern Oregon. LSSI, the system that stole our public library has broken the law and now must make serious corrections.

Mexicanos Sin Fronteras Statement to the Virginia General Assembly

DC, 12.02.2008 22:09

Today we are gathered to draw attention to the massive number of mean spirited, hate-filled, anti-immigrant bills before the House of Delegates and the Senate. It is time to speak the truth about these kinds of actions and the motivation behind them. These bills are not measures that foster prosperity nor build communities. They are just the opposite. I know this because I live in Prince William County . Our Board of Supervisors, motivated by similar ideas, passed anti-immigrant legislation in our county. And now we the residents of that county are paying for it. The county budget is in a multimillion dollar deficit that will dramatically drive up our taxes. Our businesses are closing down, our home values are plummeting far worse than neighboring counties, our police have lost the respect and support of the immigrant community and many of our residents live in a constant state of fear. Is this what we want for the state of Virginia ?

Dal video alla videosorveglianza

Switzerland, 12.02.2008 21:37

Dal 15 al 17 febbraio, avrà luogo al CSOA il Molino di Lugano un finesettimana dedicato alle autoproduzioni video. Un programma sfaccettato che coinvolgerà diverse associazioni legate al video e al mediattivismo: tikinò, mookamovie e indymedia.

Il venerdì sera sarà dedicato alla visione di cortometraggi (vai alla scheda), dapprima con un momento di schermo libero in cui ognuno potrà presentare propri lavori (durata massima: 8 minuti, formato consigliato DVD). Poi si passerà ad una selezione di corti realizzati da tikinò nel 2007, per concludere con tre cortometraggi prodotti dai compagni di mookamovie di Como.

C'è ki fa i film e kinò
A partire da sabato mattina, con la collaborazione di Jilt, verrà proposto un laboratorio di editing video. Il software che utilizzeremo è Cinelerra, libero e aperto, che permette di maneggiare immagini in movimento in maniera molto precisa e creativa. Nel corso del finesettimana realizzeremo collettivamente un cortometraggio legato al tema della videosorveglianza curandone le varie fasi: ideazione, realizzazione, montaggio e pubblicazione on-line.



Protesters Greet Calderon: Demand Human Rights for Indigenous Peoples

Boston, 12.02.2008 21:08

Cambridge, Mass—A group of protesters unveiled their banners and signs in freezing temperatures last night to greet President of Mexico Felipe Calderon who spoke at Harvard’s JFK Forum. “Boston doesn't appreciate visits from those who violently suppress Indigenous movements and work to create desperate economic conditions that force millions of their citizens to migrate in search of better lives,” read a press release that the Zapatista Bloc circulated previous to the protest. The bloc is formed by a group of local anarchists who value indigenous rights of self-governance, but many other Boston activists were present at the rally as well.



Marine Recruiters to Be Welcome in Berkeley?

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.02.2008 20:11

Faced with threats from Republican lawmakers, the Berkeley City Council is meeting tonight to discuss changing its stand on military recruiters. Activists are holding a vigil from Monday, February 11th at 7pm until Tuesday at 7pm, when the council meets. Several pro-war groups are organizing members to confront protesters all day Tuesday. On Jan. 29th, the Berkeley City Council voted 6 to 3 that the U.S. Marine Recruiting Station on Shattuck Ave. "is not welcome in the city, and if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome intruders."

Tree Sit Media Representative Responds to University's Attempt To Stifle Free Speech

Santa Cruz, CA, 12.02.2008 09:08

On February 11th, lawyers representing Jennifer Charles requested that the University of California's lawsuit attempting to stifle her free speech be dismissed. Charles, a UC Santa Cruz alumnus, has been acting as the media contact for tree sitters at UCSC protesting the University's plan to destroy 120 acres of forest. The tree sitters have been protecting groves of redwoods since November 7th, when hundreds of people rallied in opposition to the increased University construction.



Dresden: Proteste gegen Neonazis und &quot;Geschichtsrevisionismus&quot;

Germany, 12.02.2008 05:09

Es gibt Dinge die ändern sich nie... Zum Jahrestag der Bombardierung Dresdens am 13. Februar 2008 stehen wieder viele Veranstaltungen an. Neben dem bürgerlichen Gedenken, wird Dresden auch in diesem Jahr am 16. Februar 2008 Austragungsort des vermutlich größten Aufmarsches von Rechtsextremisten in der Bundesrepublik sein. Dazu kommt noch ein Fackelaufmarsch der Neonazis am Abend des 13. Februar. Doch nicht nur die Aktivitäten der Nazis sind Vielen ein Dorn im Auge. Schon seit Jahren kritisieren einige lokale Antifaschisten auch die Gedenkpolitik der Stadt und vor allem die der Bürger. In jedem Fall stehen der Landeshauptstadt ereignisreiche Tage ins Haus...

Ways of supporting Briana Waters in Court. IMPORTANT!

Portland, 11.02.2008 17:39

For many of us wishing to support Briana in her trial, what we think of as "appropriate dress" for court is going to be a bit different than what her jury will think of as normal. Here are some important thoughts for those getting ready to go up to Tacoma tomorrow and over the next month...

First of all, one of the most important things to remember is that we are there to support Briana and help show the jury that she isn't part of some "family" of underground scary anarchists or even activists. We are not there to protest the unjust court process, we are there to show a jury that a large number of THEIR peers support this woman and don't believe the government line. Therefore: IT IS ESSENTIAL, that if you want to support Briana, to show up in the most mainstream type of clothes you can find. Do NOT wear black. No Patches. Piercings other than earrings should be taken out. Guys: If your scruffy, now is a great time to shave...

Also, if you want to help out in this case but don't know if you can pass yourself off as something you're not, WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! There are plenty of ways to get involved behind the scenes that are just as important! Please email  olycivlib@riseup.net to find a way to help!

47 Rats Liberated from Scripps Hospital in San Diego, California

Portland, 11.02.2008 16:39

47 rats rescued from Scripps Hospital vivisection breeding facility.
Recently, concerned citizens rescued 47 rats who were apparently part of a breeding program at Scripps "Mercy" Hospital in the Hillcrest area of San Diego. We entered through an unlocked door and found these beautiful innocent creatures living in squalor. Eight were crammed into each tiny barren cage. Their white fur was matted in urine and feces. Their babies were to be stolen from them and tortured in useless experiments, but now they are in loving homes where they will spend the rest of their lives as individuals, rather than research tools to be discarded when no longer necessary.

Who are the terrorists in this situation: those who peacefully rescue neglected beings from abuse and cruelty, or those who terrify, torture and destroy innocent life? This rescue is dedicated to the brave people who speak out and more importantly act in support of direct action and rescue.

H.R. 1955: Government Suppression of Free Thought and Free Expression

Portland, 11.02.2008 16:39

H.R. 1955 has been passed by the House, and is being debated in the Senate. Should this bill become law, those with "extremist belief systems" - as defined by the government - would be subjected to government scrutiny and worse for supposedly promoting "violent radicalization".

As defined by the government, do you have an "extremist belief system" which could be used to facilitate "ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change"? Then you could be guilty of "violent radicalization", and find yourself in the crosshairs of H.R. 1955 (and companion bill S. 1959), the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. This proposed federal law was co-written by its sponsor, California Democrat Jane Harman. It was passed by the House on October 23, 2007 by a vote of 404 to 6, and is currently being deliberated in the Senate.

See link to www.govtrack.us for Bringing the War on Terrorism Home: Congress Considers How to 'Disrupt' Radical Movements in the United States, an article by Jessica Lee written on November 16, 2007, describing this proposed law in detail, and its implications.

Clinton and Obama: Failures on War and Global Warming

Arkansas, 11.02.2008 00:11

On the biggest question facing humanity, human caused global warming, both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are ignoring the urgent proposals of global warming experts and instead put forward conservative proposals of carbon credit trading for big corporations and proposals for so-called “cleaner” fuels for cars. Carbon credit trading, giving big corporations the “right” to buy and sell the “right” to pollute, will undermine the ability to pass other legislation that can better curb carbon pollution. And the “cleaner” bio-fuels being proposed make no substantial difference because it takes energy involving carbon emissions to grow the plants used to make bio-fuels. In addition, rainforests that would help remove global warming causing carbon from the atmosphere are being cleared to grow bio-fuels. To make matters worse, converting food-stuffs and croplands to bio-fuels increases world food prices, causing increased world hunger.
