Началось строительсво Гродненской ГЭС?

Belarus, 24.03.2008 18:07

В пятницу 21 марта место строительных работ выглядело следующим образом: Через поселок Щечиново, располодженном на берегу Немана, немного выше по течению чем Гродно, то и дело проезжают МАЗы. Они вывозят песок с берега Немана. Роют то ли котлован для обводного канала, то ли делают дорогу в будущей дамбе. Выяснить конкретно ничего не удалось. Рядовые строители ничего не говорят, вообще не идут на контакт. А главного в этом деле человека Виктора Микулича в городе не оказалось - он мог бы сказать что-либо.

Самый любопытный вопрос - откуда деньги? Есть версия, что работы начали в надежде на бюджет.

Should TELECOMS pay “Your Defense Costs” to fight NSA Illegal-Wiretap Evidence?

NYC, 24.03.2008 17:09

Perhaps the only thing that has stopped government from broadly using “illegal telecom assisted wiretap evidence” against ordinary Citizens is that Telecoms don’t have immunity from being sued by charged criminal and civil asset forfeiture defendants.

This easter weekend Blackball celebrated its rich militant worker's history with the centennial of the 1908 strike… A good turnout in the rather isolated Balckball kicked off the weekends events, aimed at celebrating the 11 week strike, which, 100 years earlier, helped strengthen the rights of miners, workers and unionism throughout the country.

Peace Activists Stage Dramatic Easter 'Die-In’ at Holy Name Cathedral to Protest Anniversary of Iraq War

Chicago, 23.03.2008 20:09

March 23 – Six members of the anti-war group “Catholic Schoolgirls Against The War” staged a dramatic die-in during the 11AM Easter mass at Holy Name Cathedral, Chicago’s most prominent Catholic parish – and the home of one of the nation’s most conservative church leaders, Cardinal Francis George

The action was staged in the Gold Coast cathedral’s parish center, an auditorium where mass is being said while the main cathedral undergoes renovation. Easter services at Holy Name are traditionally one of the most heavily attended masses of the year, and this mass was no exception, with people packed wall to wall for today’s Easter morning holiday service.

The group of young men and women, dressed in their Easter best, sat through the 11AM mass until George reached the homily. A few seconds into the cardinal’s main holiday message, the protesters rose from their seats, turned to address the thousands of parishioners in the auditorium, and talked about the continuing death of both Iraqis and Americans in Iraq as the war enters its sixth year. The group also decried George's January 7 meeting with Mayor Daley and President Bush. Read More

On the Verge - The Film They Tried to Ban

United Kingdom, 23.03.2008 20:09

Police have intervened across the country to censor 'On the Verge' an independent documentary about a campaign to shut down a Brighton weapons manufacturer. So far establishments in Southampton, Chichester, Bath and Oxford as well as Brighton have come under police pressure to cancel film showings. In Brighton police intervened to prevent a showing at the Duke of York's Cinema, just one hour prior to the scheduled premiere.

Using activist, police and CCTV footage plus interviews with those involved in the campaign, 'On The Verge' tells the story of one of the most persistent and imaginative campaigns to emerge out of the UK's anti-war movement and direct action scene. See trailers of the film here(mpg) and here (wmv).

Spokesman for the production company SchMovies, Steven Bishop said "I am extremely disappointed but not entirely surprised by the police's action. There may be issues with certification but as we're not charging for entry this shouldn't be an issue. If the police really had problems over the certificate they could have approached us at a much earlier stage. Our film although focussing mainly on the rights and wrongs of protest shows a number of examples of questionable police behaviour – Perhaps this is why they left their move so late"

Meanwhile the "On the Verge" Screening Tour continues. The upcoming dates this week are:
24th - Oxford. OARC
25th - Bath. Friends' Meeting Place
26th - Hereford. The Barrels Pub
27th - Bristol. Kebele Social Centre

Portland, 23.03.2008 16:38

Portland's seriously pissed off grannies were back at the Broadway Military Recruiting Center today, after having taken several months off from their Friday protests. Portland police arrested four people for putting red handprints on the windows of the Recruiting Center.

The Grannies say the handprints symbolize the blood of those who have died in the war.

Here is one thing you can do to prevent a slaughter on the river

Portland, 23.03.2008 16:38

In a matter of days, officials plan to begin killing sea lions on the Columbia unless we stop them. They plan to close the area to witnesses during the killing, to prevent anyone from seeing what suffering and murder look like. (Anything that is so wrong that it cannot be witnessed by the public should be a warning sign to all concerned.) The time is now. We must all do something, and we must do it now.

I would like to be more helpful in coming up with ways that you can make a difference, but for the moment, all I can do is to beg you to PLEASE contact the people below, and PLEASE do what you can to educate the people around you about this issue. Tell them the truth about the sea lions. Let them know that it is simply not true that sea lions are "overpopulated." They are not new to the area, they are native to the region and to the river. Give people the facts. Sea lions have ALWAYS been on the Columbia river. They are not to blame for the salmon crisis. Humans are preying on far more fish than sea lions are. Killing sea lions is not a solution to this problem.

Three days of fire (Greece, 18-19-20/3/2008)

Portland, 23.03.2008 16:38

The following communique was sent to directactiongr@yahoo.gr, and is referring to a three day rampage against among other targets, a Millenium Bank in Pagrati, a security vehicle in Koukaki and a construction company's vehicle in Kifissia, an Emporiki bank subsidiary in Agia Paraskevi, an electric company in Agioi Anargiroi and another security car in Petralona, as well as a security company offices in Galatsi (all of them in Athens, according to http://www.skai.gr/master_story.php?id=76442).

The communique: The conspiracy of cells of fire Thessaloniki-Athens claims responsibility for the three-day (18-19-20/3) arson attacks. The police state constitutes an irrefutable reality. Mobilizing the dogma of security (insecurity) it intensifies its repressive action, penetrating every level of the social tissue and tearing it into pieces. Panoptism is utilized in every expression of the older and the new forms of surveillance and the industry of fear is set for good. Cameras, cops, juries, municipal cops and security patrols safeguard this new complex net of captivity.

This 3 day festival of fire is dedicated to the comrades Chrissostomos Kontorevithakis and Marios Tsourapas, detained for attempting to blow up a municipal police vehicle at Paleo Faliro, and facing a jury on July. It is part of a generalized attack against the current, a part of the defense of our freedom, a part of the destruction of your world. As long as there are fists and howls raised, as long as there is dignity around, we will always stand against your plans, always against you. We'll be back soon. ~ Conspiracy of Cells of Fire Thessaloniki-Athens

Ambrose Informant in MI Arrests

Portland, 23.03.2008 16:38

Frank Ambrose has apparently agreed to cooperate fairly comprehensively. He plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit arson but has admitted involvement in many other actions over the course of the last decade and agreed to cooperated fully regarding about 15 actions over that time period. He was arraigned only 20 min. after the other 3 people there were arrested, so draw what conclusions you will from that. His plea agreement (unredacted) will be posted here soon.

Background: People arrested and charged for arson at Michigan State University

Olympia SDSer Arrested! Free Forrest Student!

Portland, 23.03.2008 16:38

On Tuesday, March 18, local activist Forrest Student and member of SDS at The Evergreen State College in Olympia was targeted by Officer Perez of the Evergreen Police. Perez has a history of harassing and abusing students and other people on campus. When Perez approached him and started questioning him, the person said he had the right to have an attorney present and because of that, Perez arrested him for obstruction. Forrest continued in his refusal, demanding an attorney while in jail and at his arraignment. In response his charges were increased to misdemeanor criminal mischief. The judge refused to set bail and Forrest is still sitting in jail.

Forrest has been very involved in local politics of late, participating in the Port of Olympia protests in November and being very vocal in his criticism of the conduct by the Administration on campus in the wake of the events on Feb. 14th. In the current environment of political repression on campus and elsewhere, this development proves significantly troublesome. Forrest has been held in jail and is facing charges for exercising a right protected by the Fifth Amendment, the right not to speak to law enforcement without representation.

If you would like to lend assistance to Forrest for legal matters, send check or money to:

VIDEO: Mike Africa Jr. talks about the May 13, 1985 bombing of MOVE

Portland, 23.03.2008 15:38

Along with the new Mike Africa Jr. interview, this video features archival footage from May 13, 1985, including an excerpt of a police video of the fire taken from across the street, where a cop is actually heard joking that: "They won't call the police commissioner a motherfu**er anymore," followed by enthusiastic police laughter.

This is part of a new video series about the upcoming parole hearings for the eight remaining MOVE prisoners, which are scheduled for early April. The central pieces in the video series feature 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.) where they talk about the upcoming parole hearings.

Roots of Salmon Crisis Revealed

Portland, 23.03.2008 14:38

There are a lot of hands being thrown up into the air by public officials this month, moaning that they have "tried everything" and that there is "simply nothing left to do" about the salmon crisis, other than to kill sea lions. However, as these pictures (taken this morning) reveal, the roots of the salmon crisis are much more shallow than these officials might think. Indeed, this crisis could easily have been addressed without bloodshed, if only those who pretend to care for salmon were actually willing to make the necessary (though bloodless) sacrifices that this crisis is really going to take. As long as nets like these are prowling the waters, the fish will continue to disappear from Cascadian rivers.

Those of us who care about the salmon, and the bio-region in which we live, need to be very, very concerned about these nets. They are the dangerous predators of Cascadia, wiping out all the salmon. And they are the ones that need to be removed from the river and the ocean. If we think we can manage this system by removing the natural predators and leaving the exotic, invasive, human predators with free reign, we are egregiously mistaken.

Comment: Fishing alone has not driven Salmon to extinction.
just a few more causes: Dams, Logging, Roads, cities, pharmaceuticals, GE food, farming chemicals, lobbyists, etc...Everyone should spend 10 seconds to start reading this report by a few high school students.

Solidaridad con Indymedia Colombia

Euskal Herria, 22.03.2008 20:08

Una ola de asesinatos y amenazas se cierne sobre las organizaciones sociales en Colombia. Los asesinados y amenazados son promotores y promotoras de la Marcha en homenaje a las v�ctimas de cr�menes de estado, que el pasado 6 de marzo congreg� a cientos de miles de personas en todo el pa�s y tambi�n a personas solidarias en varias ciudades del mundo. Entre los asesinados est�n los sindicalistas Leonidas G�mez, dirigente de los trabajadores del Citybank, Carlos Burbano, trabajador de la salud, la maestra Carmen Cecilia Carvajal y el tambi�n educador Gildardo G�mez; adem�s de otros tres l�deres sociales (Relato de los hechos ocurridos desde el 6M).

Entre los amenazados por los paramilitares denominados "�guilas Negras", hay por lo menos 27 dirigentes y activistas, as� como organizaciones de derechos humanos, la organizaci�n ind�gena ONIC, la central sindical CUT, la Red de las Mujeres por la Paz, la Ruta pac�fica de las Mujeres organizaciones campesinas y organizaciones de v�ctimas y desplazados por la violencia. Adem�s han sido amenazados medios de comunicaci�n, entre ellos Indymedia Colombia. Una de las amenazas enviadas, la que fue posteada en Indymedia y enviada a varias organizaciones dice: "todas aquellas entidades, instituciones, representaciones diplom�ticas y personas del com�n que reciban este comunicado virtual, est�n declaradas OBJETIVOS MILITARES".

Dada la gravedad que asumen este tipo de amenazas en Colombia y al hecho de que varias organizaciones amenazadas han sufrido allanamientos ilegales para despojarlas de sus computadores e informaci�n y otras han sufrido el ataque y destrucci�n de la informaci�n de sus p�ginas web, es necesario y urgente manifestar la solidaridad con Indymedia Colombia y las organizaciones sociales colombianas amenazadas y v�ctimas de asesinatos.
