Wikileaks censored by US Court

United Kingdom, 24.02.2008 12:39

Transparency website Wikileaks has been muzzled with a legal injunction by a US court following the publication of leaked documents about a Swiss bank implicated in alleged money laundering. The anonymous whistleblower site, devoted to battle against corruption and censorship, published several hundred documents from a Swiss banking whistleblower purportedly showing that Bank Julius Baer and its Cayman Islands subsidiary had been involved in offshore tax evasion and money laundering by extremely wealthy and, in some cases, politically sensitive clients from the US, Europe, China and Peru. Rather than ordering the removal of specific documents, however, the San Francisco District Court ordered Wikileak's DNS registrar, Dynadot, to remove all DNS hosting records for the wikileaks.org domain name and prevent it from resolving to the wikileaks.org website or any other website or server other than a blank park page. There have also been reports of attempts to lock down the site through Denial of Service attacks and threats to its DNS record.

Knowing that governments and institutions will go to extreme lengths to censor the truth, its founders had created an extensive network of cover names from which one can access their materials or continue leaking secret documents. Thus, while Wikileaks.org is down, other mirrors (copies of the site) are still up and running, like wikileaks.be. The site can also still be accessed via its IP address in Sweden.

Wikileaks has published important leaked documents in the past, such as the Rules of Engagement for Iraq, the Guantanamo Camp Delta Standard Operating Procedures and evidence of major bank fraud in Kenya that apparently affected the Kenyan elections. It has recently faced similar legal threats after publishing a confidential briefing memo relating to the dramatic collapse of the Northern Rock bank.

Indymedia UK and the Atzmon-Greenstein affair

United Kingdom, 24.02.2008 04:08

Although moderation discussions and disagreements within the IMC UK collective are not that rare, never before has a post proved so controversial and divisive like an article by controversial Israeli writer and musician Gilad Atzmon titled "Saying NO to the Hunters of Goliath". The disputed post has triggered serious, heated discussions among Indymedia UK moderators, two active IMCers leaving the collective, as well as a malicious campaign of spamming and disinformation against Atzmon and Indymedia UK itself. However, the controversy was also an opportunity for IMC UK to reflect on the process of moderation and the need for a deeper political discussion. The purpose of this feature is to establish the facts and clarify IMC UK's position(s) on the Atzmon-Greenstein affair, anti-Semitism and moderation issues in general.



Support illegally fired IWW worker!

Boston, 24.02.2008 04:08

Three weeks ago, eight community members went to the Harvest's board of directors to express concern over the termination of Deon Furtick. Two supporters of Deon, a co-worker and long time co-op member, spoke on his behalf during a five minute public comment period. The group asked the board of directors for Deon to be reinstated with back pay, that management use progressive discipline before firing employees, and that the right to organize be respected. Since then community members have passed out hundreds of flyers outside the co-op's two locations in Cambridge and Jamaica Plain, and dozens of phone calls have been made to management on Deon's behalf. Yet so far the Harvest has refused to discuss the issue.

Call Out For Resistance In Olympia

Portland, 24.02.2008 01:38

Hello,

Many of you have already heard of the riot that took place in Olympia on Valentine's Day. If you saw anything inspiring in what happened, if you do not believe the police were justified in any of their actions or if you simply are ready, please listen. The police have issued a threat, printed in the Olympian newspaper, to the people involved in the riot. They intend to begin a witch hunt. They will no doubt use everything in their limited power to terrify a community. If they succeed in terrifying everybody, another period of darkness will descend.

Rather than lapse into despair and inaction, I am asking you all to stand up to them. I do not know, nor have I the capability to say what standing up to them means. But I know it is what we must do. The police expect zero-resistence from their herd of sheep and have grown used to always winning. They always win because they have conditioned everyone to never resist them, just like every good domesticator.

Do not let them get anyone.
And let them have a hard time trying.

Shattered Peace, an Opportunity for Animal Defense

Portland, 23.02.2008 21:39

There is a grassy field on the edge of the Columbia where the geese gather at this time of the year, every morning. They stand in the frosty grass, with circlets of white mist rising all around them from the waking earth. The geese chatter with each other in morning communion, their little black heads poking up through the gentle fog, the sun rising just over the water right behind them, gilding all the edges with gold. It's a breathtakingly beautiful thing to witness. And each time I see it, I yearn to have a camera in my hands, to save a part of the moment on film. So this morning, I went out there, with a camera in my hands, just for that photograph.... I never did get the shot I went out to get, the one of the geese standing in the mist. But the hunters did not get the shots they went out to get this morning either, and that is enough for me.



Fidel Castro: What I wrote on Tuesday 19

Portland, 23.02.2008 21:39

That Tuesday, there was no fresh international news. My modest message to the people of Monday, February 18 had no problem being widely circulated. I began to receive news from 11:00 a.m. The previous night I slept like never before. My conscience was at rest and I had promised myself a vacation. The days of tension, with the proximity of February 24, left me exhausted.

Today I shall not say anything about people in Cuba and the world who are close and who expressed their emotions in thousands of different ways. At this point I am dedicating myself to the adversaries. I enjoyed watching the embarrassing position of all the candidates for the United States presidency. One by one they were obliged to announce their immediate demands of Cuba in order not to risk losing a single voter.

Half a century of blockade seemed little enough to the favorites. "Change, change, change!" they cried in unison. I am in agreement, change! but in the United States. Cuba changed a long while ago and will follow its dialectical route. "No return to the past ever!" exclaim our people.

Die EU-Heuchelei im Fall des Kosovos

Germany, 23.02.2008 15:39

Die EU-Außenminister haben es wie erwartet nicht geschafft, eine gemeinsame Erklärung zum Kosovo zu verabschieden. Deuschland, Frankreich, GB, Italien und Schweden erkennen die einseitige Unabhängigkeitserklärung an. Spanien, das mit einem verdeckten Ausnahmezustand ( http://de.indymedia.org/2008/02/208365.shtml) gegen die baskische Unabhängigkeitsbewegung vorgeht, hat noch durchgesetzt, dass von einem "Einzelfall" gesprochen wird. Der Kosovo ( http://de.indymedia.org/2008/01/206451.shtml) könnne mit keiner anderen Situation verglichen werden. Neben Spanien erkennen auch Zypern, die Slowakei, Griechenland und Rumänien nicht an. Russland und Spanien erklären, es werde gegen internationales Recht verstoßen. Das stimmt zwar, dabei treten sie mit Verboten ( http://de.indymedia.org/2008/02/207537.shtml) und Repression die Menschenrechte mit Füßen.



Protesters Demand Freedom of Expression at University

United Kingdom, 23.02.2008 13:38

On Thursday around 80 protesters marched around the University of Nottingham's campus to demand freedom of expression and an end to the University's repression of student activists.

The campaign was started following the arrest of a student at a Palestine solidarity protest on the campus in November last year.

In spite of the University's deployment of undercover spies and a police cameraman, the mood was good and protesters recieved a warm reception from other members of the student body.

La Lucha Sigue... Protests against raids and arrests

Aotearoa, 23.02.2008 09:09

After further raids and arrests on Tuesday, protests were held on Saturday, 23rd February, in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Two men aged 44 and 46 from Maketu are due to appear in the Tauranga District Court again next week and a 24-year-old Ruatoki man will appear in Auckland in March on firearms charges related to the Urewera 16.

About 30 people attended a solidarity demonstration on Manners Mall in Wellington in support of the 'Urewera 20'. The demonstration was called earlier this week following additional raids by the police in Ruatoki and Maketu. Two of the arrestees spoke at the demo, which attracted a good crowd of at Manners Mall. Following a brilliant performance of 'Safer communities together Blues' by Don Franks, the demo did a lap down to the local police station.

In Christchurch, a rally was held in Cathedral Square. Speakers included Moana Cole, who in 1991 spent a year in an American county jail after pouring blood on and hammering an aircraft which was being prepared to drop bombs on Iraq. [ Video ]

NYC, 23.02.2008 05:08

Hundreds of New York City public school students gathered at the Department of Education’s doorstep this Valentine’s Day — and they weren’t there to deliver a candygram. The students chanted “Asian, Latin, black or white, to fight the cuts we must unite” and “We give Tweed an F!” down Chambers Street in Lower Manhattan on the chilly winter afternoon.

Iraq : Are there any Tears Left?

DC, 23.02.2008 01:10

In the Inquisition-scale horrors, inflicted upon Iraq, since a month short of five years ago, the ghosts of the Western-imposed human cull over the previous thirteen years - from life's dawn, to those in its twilight - sometimes, very temporarily, briefly flicker and fade slightly, in the light of another immediate atrocity of enormity. They always return, as they must, in a sight, a scent, a phrase, a 'phone call. Reminders of sins of overwhelming enormity in high places, as Washington and Whitehall bleat about their infantile 'war on terror' and 'rogue states'.

Harmondsworth Four Acquitted

United Kingdom, 22.02.2008 21:08

The jury today found all four men not guilty of conspiracy to commit violent disorder in Harmondsworth immigration prison. Forced to rely on an clearly insufficiently indoctrinated jury, the attempt to punish these few individuals with violent criminal convictions and a long sentences has been thwarted. Though of course, these men have already served one year and three months imprisonment, on top of varying times in immigration detention. And now they will have to resume their struggle against the immigration system which imprisoned them in the first place. We can now expect them to be dispersed around Britain's detention estate until their cases are 'resolved'.

Alguns ciutadans es troben sotmesos a una sèrie de normes legals diferents a les de la resta de persones simplement pel seu lloc d'origen. El búnquer europeu, a través de les seves lleis d’estrangeria, construeix un mur cada cop més infranquejable per a aquelles persones que han nascut fora del traçat de la frontera mentres que, a la vegada, es potencia l'explotació d'aquestes persones als seus llocs d'origen i, fins i tot, quan habiten entre nosaltres. A totes elles se'ls està arravassant el dret a tenir una vida digna.

Euro 2008: in vista un'ondata repressiva generale

Switzerland, 22.02.2008 09:37

In vista dei campionati europei di calcio che si disputeranno in Svizzera ed Austria, l'ansia che il tam tam sicuritario sta suscitando in tutto il paese ha dato i suoi primi frutti. Nonostante alcune perlplessità, il parlamento cantonale ha approvato le misure contro il tifo violento previste dalla Legge federale sulla salvaguardia della sicurezza interna (LMSI) ed è già in discussione una possibile estensione di queste norme a contesti extrasportivi.
Queste nuove restrizioni consentiranno alle autorità cantonali di vietare ad una persona di accedere agli stadi e ad alcuni luoghi pubblici (piazze), obbligarla a presentarsi in determinati orari al posto di polizia e, in ultima istanza, di provvedere al suo fermo preventivo.

Queste misure sono fortemente arbitrarie, modificano in profondità il quadro giuridico esistente e le garanzie che ne derivano. Il referendum lanciato nell'aprile del 2006 non è riuscito a fermare questa pericolosa deriva.

Con il pretesto della salvaguardia della sicurezza interna, un'ondata repressiva generale rischia di abbattersi su individui e collettività.
La macchina repressiva dello stato si è già messa in moto. In Ticino durante le giornate antimilitariste di novembre le autorità hanno apertamente mostrato il vero fine di questo nuovo strumento repressivo multiuso: la soppressione di qualsiasi forma di protesta o dissenso.

PA Supreme Court rejects Mumia Abu-Jamal's PCRA appeal

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.02.2008 02:40

On Tuesday, February 19th, in a ruling unrelated to the pending US Third Circuit Court decision, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected death row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal's appeal of a 2005 ruling by Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Pamela Dembe, which denied Abu-Jamal's Post Conviction Relief Act (PCRA) petition, on grounds that it was not "timely." Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted -- many believe falsely -- of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner, and his trial was riddled with improprieties.



Ngati Aukiwa occupies again

Aotearoa, 22.02.2008 00:09

About a dozen Ngati Aukiwa members have started to occupy a three-bedroom house on the farm after it was left vacant last week by an employee who left the Stony Creek station in the far north. They said they were told by police they were trespassing. "We said we weren't. We moved into a vacant house and we're occupying it," said one of the group, Wilfred Peterson jnr. The group have had between 10 and 20 people at the house since last weekend and say they will stay there indefinitely.

Mr Peterson said the farmhouse occupation was part of a plan of action agreed by hapu members late last year after Deputy Prime Minister and Treaty Negotiations Minister Michael Cullen, and other government ministers, were forced to abandon nearby Taemaro Bay on December 22 where the agreement in principle involving Stony Creek and other lands was to have been signed with the trust board.

Manifestación por la dignidad del pueblo de Santa Cruz

Canarias, 22.02.2008 00:09

El levantamiento del secreto del sumario del caso de Las Teresitas ha venido a confirmar lo que ya era bien conocido por todos. Miguel Zerolo, ya imputado con anterioridad por el juez Garzón por un delito de cohecho en el caso Forum Filatélico, es ahora sospechoso, según el Tribunal Superior de justicia de Canarias, de haber cometido graves delitos de malversación de fondos públicos y prevaricación, contra el pueblo de Santa Cruz.

Ante esta situación, Asamblea por Tenerife, movimiento social que agrupa a más de treinta organizaciones vecinales, culturales, sindicales, ecológicas y políticas de la isla, así como gran cantidad de personas a título individual, llama a los ciudadanos de Santa Cruz y al pueblo de Tenerife a unirse para frenar la cada vez más insoportable escalada de corrupción política y empresarial (los presidentes de la patronal de la construcción y de la Cámara de Comercio provincial también están imputados por los mismos delitos) que degrada a la sociedad que la soporta, y les invitamos a participar en una manifestación ciudadana de protesta el próximo domingo, 24 de febrero, a las 12 del mediodía en la playa de Las Teresitas con los siguientes objetivos:

  • Exigir la dimisión del alcalde Miguel Zerolo
  • Exigir la inmediata paralización de todas ls obras emprendidas en Las Teresitas.
  • Demolición inmediata del "mamotreto" de Las Teresitas (negocio pivado de aparcamientos que invade parcialmente espacios de dominio público)

PA Supreme Court rejects Mumia Abu-Jamal’s PCRA appeal — critics say ruling is unjust

United States, 21.02.2008 23:07

On Tuesday, Feb. 19, in a ruling unrelated to the pending US Third Circuit Court decision, The PA Supreme Court rejected Mumia Abu-Jamal’s appeal of a 2005 ruling, which had rejected his PCRA petition on grounds that it was not “timely” (see AP and Philadelphia Inquirer reports). Pam Africa, Robert R. Bryan, Dave Lindorff, Michael Schiffmann, and Linn Washington Jr. responded on Tuesday, saying the ruling was unjust.

This ruling now cuts off one more avenue of appeal for Abu-Jamal, which makes the pending federal ruling even more crucial. While planning "day after" demonstrations following the federal ruling that is expected any time, lead organizer Pam Africa criticized the corporate media and urged supporters to fight media bias by helping to publicize the new photo evidence and internet videos presenting the evidence.
