MOVE 9 Parole Hearings Set For April

United States, 11.03.2008 13:37

Almost 30 years after the Aug. 8, 1978 confrontation in Philadelphia, the eight remaining "MOVE 9" prisoners are now eligible for parole (see Philadelphia Inquirer and Metro articles). In early April, they will be interviewed by the Parole Board. With the hearings just weeks away, MOVE is asking for support by contacting the Parole Board and signing the online petition (already signed by Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky) . A new video series features interviews with MOVE members Ramona Africa (the sole adult survivor of the May 13, 1985 police bombing of MOVE headquarters) and Mike Africa Jr. (the son of MOVE 9 prisoners Debbie and Mike Sr.).

In a recent interview, veteran Philadelphia journalist Linn Washington Jr. cites his sources in the police department who told him that Officer James Ramp was actually shot by police gunfire, and not MOVE. Hear the short audio clips: Was Officer Ramp Killed By Police Gunfire?; The Illegal Destruction of MOVE's House; Manipulation of Evidence and Media Bias; Ed Rendell and Prison Guard Violence Against MOVE; Unfair Parole Stipulations; and May 13, 1985.

Sea Shepherd activists injured as Japanese military open fire

United Kingdom, 11.03.2008 12:38

A clash between the crew of the Sea Shepherd vessel Steve Irwin, who is in the Southern Ocean to fight the ongoing Japanese whaling sloughter near the Antarctic, turned violent when the Japanese Coast Guard began to throw flash grenades at its crew. Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd ship was struck by a bullet in the chest. Fortunately, the bullet was stopped by his Kevlar vest.

Other injuries were sustained by crewmembers Australian Ashley Dunn and Ralph Lowe. Dunn suffered a hip injury as he tried to get out of the way of the exploding grenades. Lowe received bruises to his back when one of the flash grenades exploded behind him. Japan is denying that any bullets have been fired, saying "warning devices" were thrown after their ship was attacked. According to the Japanese foreign ministry their coastguard on board on of the whaling ships had thrown a "baseball-sized device, which exploded near the activists' ship emitting a loud noise". However, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has posted a video on their website, clearly showing devices being thrown from the whaling ship exploding and a bullet being recovered from Paul Watson's jacket. One UK activist (from Nottingham) is also onboard the ship, but it has not been reported he suffered any injuries.

125 Street Rezoning Plan Approved By NYC City Council

NYC, 11.03.2008 01:38

Some Oppose Harlem Redevelopment Plan By AMY WESTFELDT – 2 hours ago NEW YORK (AP) — Harlem's heart still beats strong on 125th Street, a lively thoroughfare where remnants of the neighborhood's legendary past sit side-by-side with newly arrived banks and chain stores. But as new development sprouts among the soul food restaurants, funky record stores and such landmarks as the Apollo Theater, Harlem's main street — named one of the nation's 10 greatest last year — is struggling to retain the character residents have cherished for decades. On Monday, the city Planning Commission approved a massive rezoning plan for the corridor. The proposal would create condominiums, more performing arts space, hotels and a 21-story office tower with such high-profile tenants as Major League Baseball

Tacoma, WA - A federal jury was unable to reach a decision on conspiracy and transportation of a destructive device but convicted Briana Waters, a 32-year-old mother and violin teacher and former resident of Olympia of arson. The government charged her with being a lookout in connection with the May, 2001 arson of the Center for Urban Horticulture at the University of Washington in Seattle. If convicted on all counts, Waters would have faced a sentence of 35 years. The two informants who testified against her in the case, who admitted to participating in the arson, face between three and seven years. Ms. Waters' sentencing is set for May 30.

Reflections on Today’s Cuban Revolution

Portland, 10.03.2008 20:39

Just 93 miles off the coast of Florida lies perhaps the last remnant and stronghold of cold war opposition with the United States. For the last five decades it has boasted a leader that earned the title of dictator by successive U.S. regimes, while simultaneously maintaining widespread respect and admiration among his own people. Involved at one time in a potent trio, along with the U.S. and Soviet Union, that nearly brought the world to the brink of nuclear war, today the country stands as one of the sole examples of resistance to U.S. corporate and ideological imperialism. As the global community awoke on February 19 to the news of Fidel Castro's resignation, U.S. politicians, along with Florida's Little Havana, were in celebration of the impending change. But as Cuba officially hands over the reigns of power to Fidel's younger brother Raúl, the change the U.S. government has sought since 1959, appears truly to be an unlikely reality.

Science Hill tree-sit organizers and supporters write, "As you may have heard, on February 24th, some kind of protest took place at the home of a UCSC researcher who experiments on animals. Hyped-up news articles and administrative messages on campus have led some people to associate this protest with the Tree-Sit on Science Hill.

Immigration New Zealand Applies to Deport Iranian Christian

Aotearoa, 10.03.2008 05:10

Immigration New Zealand has applied for a deportation order for 25 year old Iranian Christian women Bahareh Moradi even though her three brothers have been granted refugee status in Aotearoa/New Zealand and the fact that she faces persecution under the Iranian theocracy.

The deportation order comes the year after the succesful GPJA-led 2007 campaign to free Iranian Christians held in Mt Eden Prison; Ali Panah, Amir Mohebbi, Thomas Yadegary and Fardien Nouriyan. In 2006 Amnesty International reported Ghorban Dordi Tourani, 50, an ethnic Turkmen convert from Islam who pastored an independent house church of convert Christians in Gonbad-e-Kavus, was killed by unknown assailants on 22 November. After his body was found outside his house, up to 10 other Christians in various cities were reportedly detained briefly by officials of the Ministry of Intelligence and may have been tortured.

Reclaiming Our Food

United Kingdom, 10.03.2008 04:08

The weekly vegan open picnic has recently faced growing repression from Police and consistent support in the community.

People taking part in Brixton's Reclaim Your Food weekly action faced arrest last Sunday 2nd March 2008 as they challenged the legitimacy of a Dispersal Order issued by the Lambeth branch of the Metropolitan Police.

Police (consisting of a mix of PCs, CSOs and higher-ranking officers) were waiting for the collective before they even arrived. They came equipped with a mobile surveillance van, 2 regular Police vans and 2 Police cars.

The first arrest came as a result of a refusal to comply with the Dispersal Order placed upon the group, the second for attempting to establish the legal basis for such an arrest. The Dispersal Order, made possible by the controversial Anti-Social Behaviour Act, was issued in response to an alleged Section 5 Public Order offence - defined as causing harassment, distress or alarm. However, when questioned, the Police failed to provide adequate evidence to suggest that such an offence was taking place.

Thankfully, the long arm of the law did not stretch to the Bicycle Repair Workshop or those making Puncture Repair Kits and Wallets from recycled and sustainable materials. These were welcome additions to the Town Square, which was reclaimed as a fully-functional public space for all...with room for a bit of a dance to the chilled reggae/dub soundsystem!

Despite all the Police intimidation and generally not fantastic weather, a good time was had by most people who turned up or happened to be passing by! - Same as today 9th of March when there were no arrests.

The collectives involved in Sunday's action are keen to welcome anyone who is interested in any aspect of the project to come along - Bring food to share. Instruments. Sound Systems. Practical Social Activities. Or just yourself!! All welcome.

The project will continure to meet at Brixton Town Square (by Coldharbour Lane, opposite the Ritzy Cinema) from around 2/3pm every Sunday. The town square is well on it's way to being a free public space, for anyone to use. This does not figure in the plans of the Police and Local Government, who are intent on seeing through gentrification of the area. Every Sunday at approx 3pm in BRIXTON TOWN SQUARE, opposite BRIXTON LIBRARY

&quot;Hunters&quot; Shoot Caged Birds to Death in Blood Sport Outside Scappoose

Portland, 10.03.2008 03:39

I borrowed a car this morning and headed out to Honeyman Road, just outside Scappoose. The mountains were lit up like jewels on the horizon, and heron, egrets, and red-tailed hawks filled the green fields and bare branches. But I was not out here for this today. I was tracking something more sinister. I was searching for a horrifying ritual that takes place far more often than most Cascadians would believe. I was on the trail of cowards with guns. And I found them.

I found them in a remote field owned by a dog kennel. (The sign at the entrance to the drive read "Meifert Kennels" on one side, and "Westend Kennels" on the other. The phone number for both is 503-543-6398. The address is 52745 E Honeyman Rd, Scappoose. Just outside of Portland. More on this later.) I could see them through the brambles along the road. As soon as I came near, I saw the first dog, bright, orange collar around its neck, anxiously pointing at the ground. I pulled my camera out of its bag, and crept up to a place where I could clearly see what was taking place.

Education: when the public connotation is gone...

The reports about education state that this education system is not working well. But european, spanish and catalan governments take this as an excuse and hurry up in developing and creating new laws to a more private, commercial and hierarchic education, in all stages, elementary, secondary, and also at the university. It was years ago that the privatization and commercialization of public education begun and the educative results don't seem to be improving, so, why not return to a really public education?

The right to a home is still being infringed in a systematic way in the whole Catalonia. The population see how the cost of living rises day by day and how the problems to pay the mortgage and the rental increase, while the banks have annuals benefits of 30%.

The measures presented from politic class only benefit developers and speculators who are still getting more and more rich at the expense of a vulnerated right.

A few weeks ago, President Nichol, of the College of William and Mary, was fired. It was largely based on political controversy, in part over his support of the right to host the Sex Workers Art Show. He was a progressive leader of the university and the daily student protests of hundreds and over a thousand people sparked much broader concerns about participatory democracy and who has control over our education system. The students? the teachers? Or the same old-money white men and capitalist business interests that run just about anything else?

On February 21st, the Bush administration finalized its controversial decision to remove the Northern Rockies gray wolf from the list of species protected under the Endangered Species Act. The removal of federal protections for the gray wolf puts its continued survival in the Northern Rockies at the mercy of the woefully insufficient state management plans developed by Wyoming, Idaho and-to a lesser extent-Montana.

Japenese Open Fire on Sea Shepard Crew: Three Injured

Portland, 08.03.2008 19:39

At 1545 hours (0445 GMT), a clash between the crew of the Sea Shepherd vessel Steve Irwin and the Japanese whaling ship Nisshin Maru turned violent when the Japanese Coast Guard began to throw flash grenades at the crew of the Steve Irwin.

Captain Paul Watson was struck by a bullet in the chest. Fortunately, the bullet was stopped by his Kevlar vest. The bullet struck just above the heart and mangled Captain Watson's anti-poaching badge, which was worn on his sweater underneath the Kevlar vest.Dr. David Page was videotaped prying the bullet from Captain Watson's Kevlar vest. "You have been hit by a bullet," he said. The Kevlar vest and anti-poaching badge effectively saved Captain Watson's life.

The Japanese Coast Guard was retaliating against Sea Shepherd crewmembers for tossing rotten butter onto the decks to discourage their illegal whaling activities. The clash came after a week long pursuit by the Steve Irwin of the Nisshin Maru, in an effort to stop illegal whaling activities in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.

Liberals swoon as window is broken on Times Square

Portland, 07.03.2008 23:38

At about 3:43 AM yesterday a bomb went off doing minor damage to the historic recruitment office on the Times Square island.

Trigger a mob response at Four AM? Incite violence, I am reminded very strongly of the pepper spraying of Anarchist by "peace keeping" reformist to prevent vandalism to a bank. Violence involves physical pain, injury or death to a living creature, not the destruction of a glass window even if it does have Uncle Sam's picture on it. A few year's back American's were pondering why American's were hated in the third world? Could it be because we value the property of American's before the life of third world citizens? That the façade of an orderly peace loving society govern by reason is more important to middle class self-esteem that any substantial effort to create such a society. These are the reasons why the American dream, a mere illusion of democracy, is the nightmare of the rest of the world. As the false hearted Liberal movement commit themselves to denoucning the braking of a pain of glass, the Bush Administration lays the ground work for a proxi war in Latin America. A war Obama and Hillary are as likely to initiate as Bush himself. American's need to go beyond their meaningless self-delusions of being a peace loving people and address the reality that the US is easily the most aggressive militaristic state of our century. To turn our nation away from this path we need to stop acting like children and look at violence as it really effects are world.
