Portland Police and the radicals 3/15

Portland, 16.03.2008 22:39

The Portland Police Bureau wasted no time in singling out the "black bloc." (Which was really just a group of people, mostly dressed in black, as the black bloc is a tactic, not a group.) They did this by having officers stand on all sides of the gathering that did not lead into the tent/tabling area, which had a foot patrol circling it. It bears mentioning that the radicals numbered about 15 to 20, as did the number of police assigned to watch them.

When the march began, the radical contingent joined in near, but not at the front of the parade. They were quickly flanked by bicycle cops, who seemed to favor the right side of the march. A group with a banner tried to take to the sidewalk. The police, using their bikes as a weapons, forced them back to the sidewalk. Around the next corner the police created a hostile situation by aggressively removing a single individual from the sidewalk, which according to city ordinance. is a part of the parade route. However, calmer heads prevailed, and the cops did not get the fight they were looking for. The rest of the parade went without altercation, though at least one group was followed by police as they were leaving.



ANOTHER KFC IS CLOSED!

Portland, 16.03.2008 22:39

After 5 years of protesting, another KFC has closed down. We met at NE 7th & Weidler today and looked at what remains of the old KFC there...not much! Signs, Colonel and grisly pictures of animal parts, are gone. What remains is merely a ghostly shadow of its former tacky self.

Thank you, volunteers, for sacrificing 5 years of grueling, tedious, sometimes hilarious and deeply rewarding work on behalf of the world's most abused animals: chickens. Activists have staged more than 12,000 protests in front of KFCs since the launch of the campaign in 2003. They've crawled into cages, tied on bikinis in freezing cold, walked around on stilts and stood for hours in drenching rain, aging the chicken costumes.

(Fast Food update -- It was announced herein that 60% of all fast food produced in the U.S. is shipped to China and India. On March 13, 2008 it was announced on NPR that Brazilian company JBS plans to acquire two more U.S. meat-packing companies, giving this company 30 percent of the American market.)

Alternative Media Blossoms in Nottingham

United Kingdom, 16.03.2008 20:08

A number of alternative media projects have sprung up in Nottingham over the past months. In February the Riseup Radio project was launched, and this month sees a new edition of the Nottingham Sparrow, and steps towards the launch of a GreenZine aimed at young people.

Meanwhile, Notts Indymedia continues to go from strength to strength, with an astonishing number of contributions. In February, we hosted the UK Indymedia gathering, during which we were approached to produce a Nottingham pullout for The Mule newspaper. We hope that all of these projects flourish in the year to come, but they all need people to help make them work. That's where you come in!

201 Layoffs Loom for PVUSD Teachers, Nurses and School Support Staff

Santa Cruz, CA, 16.03.2008 13:08

Maestra writes, "The Pajaro Valley Unified School District board of trustees voted to send pink slips to 201 teachers, nurses, and school support staff. In a desperate move to balance a budget and save their own jobs, the administrators of PVUSD have decided not to trim the fat from the top of the pyramid, rather preserving their high salary positions while instead removing a possible 130 teachers from the classroom. What does this look like for students? Larger class size, for one."

The Sixth Annual Rally in the Valley for Peace and Justice ... Now! was organized by Peace Fresno. Shortly before the event Scott Key, Peace Fresno president, said "once more we will Rally to insist that enough is enough. We must stop the immoral and unjust Occupation of Iraq. We must stop the immoral, unjust, and senseless killing of more than a million Iraqis and of more than four thousand of our own troops. We must stop spending $1 trillion plus per year on war and preparing for war and on subsidizing the wealthy corporations that support this military killing machine. As a nation, we must take the lead in establishing peace and justice for all, both nationally and globally."

Berlin: Abzocke durch Wassergeheimverträge

Germany, 15.03.2008 14:38

Der Berliner Senat hat das Volxbegehren "Unser Wasser" zur Offenlegung der Geheimverträge der teilprivatisierten Berliner Wasserbetriebe abgelehnt. Der rot-rote Senat, will das "Eigentumsrecht" der Konzerne RWE/Veolia schützen. Nicht schützenswert hingegen seiner Ansicht nach, das Eigentum aller Berliner_innen. Nach Informationen des Berliner Wassertisches sind die Preise durch die Renditezahlungen an die Konzerne um 30,9 Prozent zu hoch. Kein Wunder, dass die Verträge daher im Giftschrank verbleiben.
Fast 40.000 Unterschriften (36.062 gültige Unterschriften)wurden in der ersten Stufe für das Volxbegehren "Schluss mit Geheimverträgen - Wir Berliner wollen unser Wasser zurück" zur Zulassung gesammelt. Der rot-rote Senat lehnte die Zulassung jedoch aus fadenscheinigen juristische Gründen ab. Jetzt folgt der Schritt, die Zulassung vor dem Verfassungsgericht einzuklagen.

Direct Action and Rally Planned at Chevron Richmond Refinery

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.03.2008 10:08

A coalition which includes health, environmental and anti-war organizers are calling for people to shut down the Chevron refinery for the day of Saturday, March 15th in support of community efforts to stop Chevron from expanding its Richmond refinery, which will increase pollution and cause asthma, cancer and rising death rates in surrounding communities. Protest organizers say that Chevron is driving the war and occupation in Iraq, refining over a million barrels of stolen Iraqi oil in Richmond a month, and actively lobbying for the privatization of Iraq's oil fields. Chevron's Richmond refinery produces over two million pounds of climate-poisoning, smog-forming and toxic air and water pollutants each year.

Manifestació aturem la guerra: Ara, com fa 5 anys... No a la guerra!

Dissabte 15 de març, 17h - Plaça Universitat

* Tropes fora de l’Iraq i d’Afganistan * Cap atac a l’Iran * Justícia per a Palestina

Fa 5 anys milions de persones d'arreu del món van aixecar la seva veu contra l’amenaça de guerra contra l’Iraq. Ara, és evident que la guerra només ha empitjorat la situació a la regió.

A Iraq, milions de persones són refugiades; desenes de milers de iraquians són presoners dels ocupants; i els sistemes sanitari i educatiu estan destruïts. L'any passat a Afganistan hi va haver més combats que en qualsevol moment desde l'inici de l'ocupació al 2001. A Palestina, la població pateix els efectes del boicot econòmic i dels atacs israelians, duts a terme amb el suport dels governs d'EUA i Europa. Arreu del món, els atacs als drets humans s'estenen cada cop més; fa poc s'ha complet el 6è aniversari de la presó il.legal de Guantánamo...

Les mentides ara són les mateixes que fa 5 anys i mentre les guerres i les ocupacions continuin, les protestes també!

* Tropas fuera de Iraq y Afganistan * Ningún ataque a Iran * Justicia para Palestina

Hace 5 años millones de personas de todas partes del mundo alzaron su voz contra la amenaza de guerra contra Iraq. Ahora, es evidente que la guerra solo ha empeorado la situación en la región.

En Iraq, millones de personas son refugiadas, decenas de miles de irquianes son presos de los ocupantes y los sistemas sanitario y educativo estan destruidos. El año pasado en Afganistan hubo más combates que en cualquier momento desde el inicio de la ocupación en el 2001. En Palestina, la población sufre los mismos efectos del boicot económico y de los ataques israelianos, llevados a cabo con el apoyo de goviernos de EUA y Europa. En todas partes del mundo, los ataques a los derechos humanos se extienden cada vez más; hace poco se ha cumplido el 6o aniversario de la prisión ilegal de Guantánamo...

Las mentiras ahora son las mismas que hace 5 años y mientras las guerras y las ocupaciones continuen, las protestas también!

Protests During 5th Anniversary of US Bombing and Invasion of Iraq

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.03.2008 17:08

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008 marks the five-year anniversary of the beginning of the US war and occupation of Iraq. Events will be held all over the United States to observe and protest the ongoing war and its environmental, societal, and financial tolls. The Iraq war is the second longest in U.S. history. It has killed more than one million Iraqis and 4,000 U.S. troops. The cost of the war is now running at more than $400 million per day, nearly $5,000 per second. In San Francisco, there will be direct actions throughout the day on the 19th, as well as an ANSWER march.

Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY Closed by City for Controversial Art Installation

United States, 14.03.2008 11:07

Troy, NY -- An art installation closed by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute last Thursday (March 5) was shut down this morning (March 11), a day after it re-opened at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. The shutdown happened the day after a top Troy official organized a protest condemning the piece, by Iraqi-born artist Wafaa Bilal, as pro-terrorist. The censorship has set into motion a struggle for free speech and against city corruption.

Bilal's "Virtual Jihadi" video-art is part of of a month-long celebration of art, freedom and democracy at The Sanctuary for Independent Media -- which features culture jammers The Yes Men, film maker Pam Yates and the Critical Art Ensemble's Professor Steve Kurtz -- and is itself designed to raise issues of government intimidation and censorship under the guise of counter-terrorism.

15 de marzo: No a la guerra!! no a la ocupaci�n!!

Euskal Herria, 14.03.2008 00:09

El pr�ximo d�a 20 de marzo se va a cumplir el quinto aniversario de la guerra contra Iraq. Cinco a�os despu�s los muertos ya no caben en los informativos y al contrario de lo que dec�a la propaganda oficial, la guerra no ha tra�do ni m�s paz ni mas democracia en Oriente Medio sino que se ha convertido en la cobertura para justificar la ocupaci�n del territorio y el expolio de los recursos naturales y energ�ticos de Iraq.

El mundo no es definitivamente un lugar mas seguro; el recorte de libertades y derechos, la criminalizaci�n de la disidencia, las detenciones ilegales, la tortura, los secuestros, las prisiones secretas y las que no lo son tanto...todo vale en la lucha contra el "terrorismo", todo vale para imponer un nuevo orden mundial.

Hace 5 a�os, millones de personas de todo el mundo alzaron su voz contra la amenaza y posterior invasi�n de Irak. A�o tras a�o seguimos denunciando esta situaci�n de ocupaci�n y guerra y este a�o seguimos protestando frente a esta barbarie y frente a un orden internacional basado en el incremento de las desigualdades sociales, el militarismo y la guerra. En Euskal Herria los movimientos sociales tambi�n quieren mostrar su rechazo a este intervencionismo y los desastres que acarrean:

  • BILBO: Martxoak 15 Arriaga Plazan 17:30etan
  • DONOSTIA Martxoak 15 Boulevardean 18:00etan

Plan Announced To Spray Toxic Biological Chemicals Over San Francisco

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.03.2008 20:39

On January 24th, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Chuck Conner announced the availability of $74.5 million in emergency funding to combat the light brown apple moth (LBAM) "infestation" in California. President Bush's recent budget proposal sent to Congress sets aside $330 Million to eradicate plant pests, like the LBAM. It is unprecedented to design a long term plan to spray chemicals on people, which are untested for safety.
