A propósito del Sáhara

Canarias, 17.02.2008 07:10

«qué armas tienen los saharauis, qué enseñan a los niños/as en las escuelas, quienes son las Asociaciones y las personas que apoyan la causa del pueblo saharaui, a qué vamos allí y qué es lo que hacemos?»

estas fueron las preguntas del interrogatorio que la policía de los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica realizó a Agustín Villagra, "el Mago Zaki", en un viaje que realizó a Nueva York «para aprender de los maestros de la Magia».

Mientras tanto, ya se han terminado las reservas de alimentación de los refugiados, el aparato militar marroquí sigue reprimiendo brutalmente y los de la ONU dicen que «aún no hay solución»

Skillshare: Radical Botany - Week 5 - Plants as Shelter and Willow

Portland, 17.02.2008 07:09

We can go longer afford to cut down trees for shelter. Soon we will have none of the blessings that healthy forests give us. We will have lost our water, our air, our soil health, all the food and healing plants, and other diverse species. So how shall we live? How shall we build shelters? We do what humans have done for millons of years. We use stone, earth and fast growing plants.

First, you should know that this phenomenon of cutting forests down to build "things" is not new, it happens in times of cultural collapse, and empire building. It is a sign that the culture is headed toward devastation, desertification, and possible famine. You have only to look at places like the middle-east (ever hear of the cedars of Sinai) or Ireland (the myth of Robin Hood and his merry tree dwellers happened here). In both cases amazing forests, that supported populations of humans, animals, plants and other living beings were razed to that humans could make war on others. It was an act of greed and genocide that these forests were destroyed.

Report from Berkeley counter protest in front of City Hall

Portland, 17.02.2008 07:09

Report from a Code Pink supporter who was counter-protesting "Move America Forward" in front of Berkeley City Hall:

I was at the Berkeley recruitment center event on the 11th and 12th. The Berkeley city council had drafted a letter telling the Marine recruiters they weren't welcome in that town and gave Code Pink [ ] a free parking space in front of the center to hold their protests. Code Pink activists are currently gathering signatures to zone the recruitment center out of town.

Of course, plenty of folks aren't happy with this, and right-wing radio tools are rallying their ever-faithful listeners to come to the "defense" of the Marines. Republicans in Washington have drafted a bill, the "Semper Fi" bill [ link to ], to punish Berkeley for this "snub" by the city council, which would take away $2 million of Federal money from the city and give it to the Marines. As if the Marines don't have enough of a budget already (how about this, Congress? Take away *Blackwater's* entire budget and give it to the Marines. That's a measure I'd sup

Santa Cruz, CA, 17.02.2008 07:09

They are both members of Combatants for Peace, an Israeli/Palestinian organization made up of former fighters that attempts to now use their experiences to bridge gaps in peoples' understanding of the conflict and work for nonviolent, just, and viable solutions to the conflict.

UCSB Antiwar Activists Disrupt Army Biotech Conference

United States, 15.02.2008 11:07

ISLA VISTA / SANTA BARBARA, Tuesday, February 12, 2008 - About 350 anti-war activists met to rally at Pardall Tunnel, where they were addressed by speakers at an open microphone, including a man from Iraq and a former Marine-turned-organizer. Emotions ran high and alternated between intense anger against the war, sadness over the loss of life, and hope, joy, and optimism for the future. At times, feelings were tense, and the police helicopter circling overhead made an ominous presence. The demonstrators shortly proceeded to converge on UCSB's Corwin Pavilion with the goal of shutting down the 2008 ICB (Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies) Army-Industry Collaboration Conference.

Briana Waters Trial: First Day Update

Seattle, 15.02.2008 01:08

Jury selection began at 9:00 am and what was expected to last only a few hours ended up taking most of the day. Unsurprisingly, most of Briana's supporters were not allowed in the courtroom during the jury selection until the overflow of jurors were eventually let go around 3:00pm and there was more room. After a short break Briana's supporters filled the audience area, along with various media outlets and trial sketch artists.

Notes from Briana Waters’ Trial: Days One and Two

Portland, 14.02.2008 05:40

The proceedings began before the jury was brought in.

US: Yesterday we heard for the first time that Mr. Fox anticipates going into the area that the FBI might have changed or tailored witness testimony if the agents were concerned about the OPR Office of Professional Responsibility or a civil lawsuit.

The defense needs to be aware that if this issue is raised, it is the government's strong position that this would open up the door to airing in court what agents knew - especially Agent Howla - that overwhelmingly leads to guilt, but may not be admissible. For instance, Chelsea Gerlach says that she and the defendant cooperated on writing a communiqué, and that Briana obtained a car for one of the Oregon actions. Howla would have to bring this information to light in an open statement.

Another Fox Tower? Appeal Wed. 2 PM

Portland, 13.02.2008 19:38

The public is invited to comment at the hearing in the Council Chambers, 4th and Madison at 2 PM, Wednesday. Comments can also be e-mailed to Karla Moore-Love, Council Clerk or given or mailed to her at 1221 SW 4th, Rm. 140, Portland 97204.

This is your opportunity to tell the Council what you think of more high-rise development, gentrification, and construction downtown. Moyer's architect is talking in the press like a planning Czar. He says he can put skyscrapers anywhere downtown using FAR stratagems if zoning does not allow, as with Moyer Tower. The Block-5 area has been a construction-sacrifice zone too often through the years :1997-2000, 2006-2008, and, if Moyer gets his way, it will be so again 2008-2011.

"What market collapse?" say developers, who claim they're building "ten years into the future" and for "an exclusive market." What do you say to the makeover of your city for the benefit of some hypothetical upscale market from out of town? Moyer Tower stands for all of that and more of that.
