Dignity in Resistance - Zapatista Photo Exhibition in Poneke

Aotearoa, 05.04.2008 01:11

Dignity in Resistance is an exhibition of photographs taken in Zapatista Communities 2006-7 by Jen Bell, Julie Webb-Pullman, and Julien, that will be on display in Poneke/Wellington, from Monday 14 April.

In 1994 the Zapatista’s said “Enough!!” and stood up to attempts to further dispossess them of their indigenous lands and culture. Within days of the 1 January armed uprising, a peace deal was brokered, since when they committed to pursue a peaceful path, constructing from below and to the left a “world in which many worlds fit”. Despite their public commitment to peace and inclusion, they have suffered, and continue to suffer, ongoing repression and attack from military and paramilitary alike.

Through the eye of the camera, this exhibition captures rare glimpses of largely unknown aspects of Zapatista life – at home, at church, at school, in the fields and the kitchens, and sharing their struggles and achievements at ‘Encuentros’, as well as the more familiar protests in the streets.

The photos have been selected for the strength, dignity, humanity and spirit of the subjects and their environment, in their struggle not only to survive, but to build a better world.

Place: Thistle Gallery, Cnr Cuba and Arthur Streets, Wellington
Dates: 14-19 April
Launch: 5.30pm Monday 14 April
Closing: 7pm Saturday 19 April

“With his body he said no more”

Boston, 04.04.2008 17:10

(From Eddie Vedder’s “No More” song, written with Iraq War Veteran Tomas Young for bodyofwarmusic) In the year 2003, over 70% of America pointed the finger at those who dared voice their opinion against a war in Iraq and deemed them “unpatriotic.” They were looked at in disgust and told that they were not being supportive. “Un-American” people yelled at them; “Terrorist Lovers” added others. “You’re fired” are probably the ones Phil Donahue heard.

Nottingham's Zimbabwean Community Responds to Rigged Elections

United Kingdom, 04.04.2008 15:39

On March 29 Zimbabwe went to the polls. The election was widely criticised with accusations of vote rigging, state orchestrated media bias and violent intimidation of opposition activists. The outcome was generally considered a foregone conclusion, which would have little to do with the opinions of most Zimbabweans and early indications are that these concerns were well placed, although events now seem to have taken a more complicated turn.

In Nottingham the Zimbabwean community used the election to draw attention to the situation in their country and camapaign against the threat of deportation which many Zimbabwean asylum seekers face. They organised a meeting at the Sumac Centre on March 28 and held at protest at Nottingham's new speakers corner on March 28.

Fossil Fools Day Direct Action from around the US and tidbits worldwide

Portland, 04.04.2008 14:42

[April 1st] was "fossil fools day" an international day of protest against the dirty energy industry for their promotion of climate change and resource wars, the protest was called for by Rising Tide and many other groups. Globally 100 fossil fools protests took place on April 1.

Al Gore suggested such tactics last summer.

Around a hundred actions -- include about a dozen involving civil disobedience -- took place around the world.

In North Carolina, protesters who had chained themselves to bulldozers at a coal plant under construction were tasered by police despite being immobilized while "locked-down" to bulldozer.

With the only a few years to turn our emissions around and the growing focus on civil disobedience, the movement to stop climate change appears is heating up.

The Metropolitan Police Department says that officers will go to Eckington, Columbia Heights, Washington Highlands (and possibly other neighborhoods) to ask residents’ permission to search their homes. They will ask residents to sign a consent form. The form says that someone could be charged with a crime as the result of the search, but too many people may not understand this.

Later in the month Anonymous also picketed the CoS stall on Glasgow's pedestrian zone.

Landslides continue in Colton

Portland, 03.04.2008 04:41

Hult Road out in Colton is still closed and the hope for it ever opening again is dim. As reported here last December, this area was destroyed by the careless logging of a steep hillside by Ronald and Vina Mitchell. Permits were given to the Mitchells for this logging by the Oregon Department of Forestry. Today we hiked up the road to check on the damage caused when the clear cut area was washed out by winter rains of 2006.

Its closure has been very inconvenient to people living in the rural area and has forced service vehicles to drive out of their way to provide bus service for school children and mail service for homes. But as I walked up there this morning, I noticed a California Jay flying by with nesting materials. I heard quail calling in the low brush. I would imagine that quite a few fellow creatures are more than happy that we are not driving our vehicles back and forth on this road. What this comes down to, though, is the vast stretch of erosion which was 'permitted' and paid for by citizens of this state. [ Read More | Clear cut causes road closure ]

Demonstration Against the Proposed Slaughter of Sea Lions

Portland, 03.04.2008 04:41

Today, the PDX grassroots animal liberation organization, The Portland Animal Defense League (PDX-ADL), announces demonstrations against the proposed killing of Sea Lions by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

The planned killing of Sea Lions by the US Fish and Wildlife Service is simply a mistake that most Portlanders oppose.

Record level over-predation by human fishing, combined with the impact of dams have reduced the wild Salmon's numbers to a fraction of their historical populations.

Now, the US Fish and Wildlife Service plans to "avenge" the remaining population of Salmon by slaughtering our Sea Lions.

This is simply an emotional, political, irrational, and totally ineffective response to a very serious ecological issue.

Fossils Fools Day of Action

United States, 02.04.2008 22:37

Countries around the world observed Fossil “Fools” Day yesterday, which is an international day of protest focused on climate change and energy issues. Actions were intended to challenge and disrupt the fossil fuels industry, which scientists say is primarily responsible for global warming. Many participated in actions while some were arrested in acts of civil disobedience, while blocking coal plants and mines, gas terminals, energy companies, and corporations representative of an unsustainable fuel industry.

Дружный против пестицидов: теперь с собственным сайтом

Belarus, 02.04.2008 22:37

Как вы, наверное, знаете рядом с поселком Дружный собираются построить завод по производству (а еще и утилизации) пестицидов. В поселке живут замечательные жители, которые проявляют просто невероятную для Беларуси активность с тем, чтобы недопустить строительства этого (можете представить насколько вредного) завода рядом со своим поселком.

Недавно они сделали свой сайт, на котором можно ознакомиться со многими документами кампании, а также следить за последними новостями кампании. Еще не все разделы сайта работают, но там уже есть много интересной информации.

И одной из последних новостей является как раз то, что сегодня, в четверг 3 апреля там пройдет очередная попытка провести "общественные слушания" по вопросу строительства завода. Причем об этом мероприятии жителям стало ивестно только вчера.. Слушания начнутся в период с 15 00 до 17 00 в ДК поселка.

Fossil Fools Take On E.ON In Nottingham

United Kingdom, 02.04.2008 22:08

Activists from Rising Tide called for a day of action against the fossil fuel industry on April 1st. "They would have us believe that we can escape climate change with techno-fixes, market mechanisms and offset schemes - all technocratic acrobatics that distract us from the truth: the only real solution to climate change is to keep fossil fuels in the ground."

In Nottingham, over 30 people under the banner of Eastside Climate Action blockaded energy company E.ON's offices on Mount Street. People covered in green paint to represent E.ON's greenwash, locked onto the front entrance to the call centre offices and stood in front of other entrances preventing hundreds of workers from getting to work. Two people who were locked onto the front entrance were arrested and later in the afternoon the police entered and searched their homes in search for 'evidence' in relation to their arrest. Both were charged with public order offences and are to appear at Nottingham Magistrates Court on April 14th.

Fossil Fools Take On Fossil Fuels

United Kingdom, 02.04.2008 17:08

Rising Tide called for a day of action against the fossil fuel industry on April 1st. "They would have us believe that we can escape climate change with techno-fixes, market mechanisms and offset schemes - all technocratic acrobatics that distract us from the truth: the only real solution to climate change is to keep fossil fuels in the ground."

And what an action packed day it was.. Banners were dropped in Lancaster and Wrexham and in Edinburgh 4x4 were targetted and clowns caused foodmile havoc in supermarkets. Petrol stations were targetted in Plymouth and Sheffield and in Cambridge and Manchester activists took action at Royal Bank of Scotland branches. In Nottingham activists blockaded city centre offices of E.On and in London Rising Tide played a spoof game of football outside the FA HQ to point out what their sponsor E.On are up to. London Rising Tide also payed a visit to the offices of Y&R advertising who are currently trying to convince the public of Landrover’s green credentials. People and Planet staged a 'No New Coal' protest in parliament square to oppose the proposed powerstation at Kingsnorth and others payed a visit to the offices of a company who partly run one of the biggest opencast coal mines in Europe, in Ffos-y-Fran, Merthyr Tydfil (Wales).

At the mine itself in Merthyr Tydfil protesters halted work, with the intention to remain on the site for several days. Activists also blockaded the UK's largest off shore gas terminal at Bacton (Norfolk). They blockaded the main road outside the site preventing construction workers and shift workers from arriving. In Hull, which was hit badly by flooding last year, people draped banners and handed out leaflets. In Norwich, activists from Rising Tide sent out a spoof press release announcing that Norwich Unions would be withdrawing all of its £6.1 billion investment in the fossil fuel industry and then organised a press conference at their HQ. See full feature article for more detailed info about the actions.

Ruling Against Mumia Shows: No Justice in the Capitalist Courts

Arkansas, 02.04.2008 16:09

On March 27, the U.S. appeals court in Philadelphia reaffirmed the frame-up conviction of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the former Black Panther Party spokesman and world-renowned radical journalist who has been locked up on Pennsylvania’s death row for more than a quarter century. After previously rejecting Mumia’s request to present evidence of his innocence, as well as a host of issues showing that he was railroaded by a racist court, the Court turned down Mumia’s request for a new trial. It upheld the 2001 ruling by a federal district judge that ordered a new hearing on the sentence, but limited the “choice” to the living hell of life imprisonment without parole … or execution. Mumia is innocent. He was declared guilty and sentenced to die because of his revolutionary politics and because for years he had been a thorn in the side of the racist rulers of the misnamed “city of brotherly love.” Around the world, millions have come out in defense of Jamal. This latest ruling, like all those that preceded it, shows that the exploited and oppressed must have no faith in the racist injustice system. We call on the workers movement to mobilize its power to free Mumia now!

Würde für Franco-Opfer, aber nur in Katalonie

Germany, 02.04.2008 10:09

Da ein neues Gesetz in Spanien zur Rehabilitierung der Opfer der Diktatur sehr kurz greift (, hat die Regionalregierung Kataloniens eine Erweiterung beschlossen. Damit soll den Opfern der Repression die Würde zurückgeben werden, die in Massengräbern verscharrt wurden. Die sozialistische Zentralregierung hatte sich erneut nicht getraut, gegen die Postfaschisten und gegen die mächtige katholische Kirche ein wirkliches "Gesetz zur Wiederherstellung der historischen Erinnerung" zu verabschieden ( Doch auch wenn das katalanische Gesetz etwas weiter geht, kritisieren die Opferverbände erneut, dass auch mit diesem Gesetz die Opfer des Faschismus mit den im Kampf zur Verteidung der Republik getöteten Täter gleichgesetzt werden.
