Armed Canadian Coast Guard Storms Conservation Vessel

United Kingdom, 14.04.2008 17:08

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society vessel Farley Mowat was attacked by armed officers from the Canadian Coast Guard on 12th April. The 1st officer and the captain of the ship have been arrested and will be brought before a court in Canada charged with offences related to coming too close to the seal hunt. One woman allegedly sustained a head injury when was roughed up and received a blow to the head by an officer. The ship has been impounded and is currently being towed to a nearby port.

The Sea Shepherd has been documenting the Canadian seal hunt since the middle of March. On the 30th March, the Coast Guard rammed the Sea Shepherd ship twice, in an attempt to keep it away from the seal hunt. On 5th April, the ship was attacked by a mob of 30-40 angry seal hunters while anchored in the French island of St. Pierre. The crew of the Farley Mowat has been documenting violations of the humane regulations and gathering proof that seals are still being killed in an inhumane manner. The EU Parliament will be voting on an import ban on seal products later this year. The Canadian goverment has been actively lobbying to show that the hunt has become 'humane and sustainable'.

Un autob�s contra el silencio

Euskal Herria, 14.04.2008 13:08

Est� ya en marcha el "Autob�s de la Memoria", un proyecto de todas las asociaciones de Navarra que est�n trabajando en el movimiento de recuperaci�n de la memoria hist�rica. Pretende difundir las voces de quienes sufrieron por no comulgar con el fascismo triunfante, por intentar repartir las tierras de una manera equitativa, por crear escuelas y teatros o por defender que hombres y mujeres merecieran el mismo respeto y gozasen de los mismos derechos. O simplemente por nada, por ser una v�ctima m�s de una estrategia del terror.

Por ello, este autob�s de las voces recorrer� Navarra uniendo diferentes localidades y actos que llevan a�os celebr�ndose, y que este a�o tendr�n un car�cter unitario, colectivo, de manera que reforcemos experiencias que a menudo son desconocidas en pueblos de otras comarcas.

Decentralized Days of Action for Squats and Autonomous Spaces

Aotearoa, 14.04.2008 02:14

Following a meeting in the autonomous space 'Les Tanneries' in Dijon (France) last year, there was a call out for two days of decentralised actions in defence of free spaces and for an anti-capitalist popular culture on 11/12 April 2008.

A Reclaim the Streets party took place in Wellington outside 128 Abel Smith Street, a radical social centre which was raided only 6 months ago on 15th October in the so-called 'anti-terror' raids. The party was a great success, although the police showed up several times and some sound gear was confiscated. [ Report and Photos | Video ]

Reports from around Europe can be read here. Demonstrations took place around the Netherlands, a new squat opened in Basel (Switzerland) only to be evicted again three hours later and actions took place across the UK.

The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal: an interview with author J. Patrick O’Connor

DC, 14.04.2008 01:09

In his new book, O’Connor argues that Abu-Jamal was clearly framed by police, and that the actual shooter was a man named Kenneth Freeman. O’Connor criticizes the local media, who, he says “bought into the prosecution’s story line early on and has never been able to see this case for what it is: a framing of an innocent and peace loving man.”



Murder, Corruption and Illegal Logging in Oaxaca

United Kingdom, 14.04.2008 00:08

The murder of two radio activists in Oaxaca has brought the repression suffered by indigenous Mexicans into sharp focus. Oaxaca has the biggest percentage of indigenous people who speak many different languages and suffering serious discrimination including the theft of their natural resources.

One such example is the village of San Isidro Aloapam who have been fighting the destruction of their local forest by commercial loggers who are bending the law to justify their activity. Attempts by the villagers to protect the forest have been met with extreme violence leaving many villagers injured and imprisoned. The village is represented politically by indigenous action group CIPO-RFM who have organized a series of media and international solidarity events to highlight the struggle. CIPO-RFM activists Miguel Cruz Moreno and Pedro Bautista Rojas were recently interviewed by IMC UK about the struggle.

There will be a prisoner support benefit gig in London on Wednesday April 16th.

GM Seeds Still Active in Soil 10 Years Later

Portland, 13.04.2008 13:38

A field planted with experimental oilseed rape a decade ago found transgenic specimens were still growing there despite intensive efforts over the years to remove the seeds, according to researchers in Sweden. This is the first time a genetically modified crop has endured so long and critics say it shows that genetically modified organisms cannot be contained once released.

"We should assume that GM organisms cannot be confined, and ask instead what will become of them when they escape."



Action against I-69, Call for long-termers

Portland, 13.04.2008 13:38

[April 3] Its been a three weeks since clearing officially began for the NAFTA Superhighway, I-69. Trees have been felled in the first two miles (out of 142) of the route, and three out of the four homes (out of 400) which had already been seized by the Department of Transportation were demolished this week. Security is posted around the clearing sites, reflecting the state's fear of the wrath of local communities threatened by the road. And importantly, the Department of Transportation finished accepting bids for the construction of the first two miles today, April 2. So within the next weeks, the contracts for initial construction will be in place.

Meanwhile, in Bloomington and Evansville, and across Indiana, dedicated people are working to mobilize our communities to shut this road project down. The next big round of actions is already being planned for April and May, while community organizing is being stepped up to plug as many people as possible into resistance at this critical time.

We hope to see you soon in the forests and fields of southwest Indiana. Make sure you're here before they're all paved. In defense of the wild, Roadblock Earth First!

March 17th Callout |

Anti-Sweatshop Campaign Calls on Oregon to Pass “Sweatfree” Bill

Portland, 13.04.2008 13:38

Salem, OR ?Sweatfree Northwest hosted its official kick-off for the Oregon Sweatfree Campaign at 12noon on April 1, 2008, on the Capitol Steps in Salem. Union and faith leaders, human rights advocates, and students groups from Portland and Salem came to show their support of the statewide campaign. The Oregon Sweatfree Campaign will encourage Governor Kulongoski to pass an Executive Order for Sweatshop Free Purchasing for Oregon. This policy will ensure that tax money spent on purchasing uniforms for state departments will go to ethical suppliers that can ensure good working conditions at the point of assembly.

The Oregon Sweatfree Campaign kickoff was an excellent demonstration of Oregon values. "Oregon is known throughout the world as a leader in sustainability," said Arthur Stamoulis while addressing the group, "As a state that develops the programs and projects and policies that serve as models for others to follow. Clearly, the current global economy?which pits nation against nation and worker against worker in a race to the bottom?is not sustainable. By championing sweatfree purchasing, Oregon can continue its role as a leader in sustainable development."

On April 8th, around noon, cyclist Christopher Evan Rock was killed at the intersection of Mission and Bay Streets in Santa Cruz. That is two deaths and one major injury at that intersection within the last year, due to a street design and a culture of driving that does not allow for the existence of cyclists.

I won’t have the fine and luxurious things of life to leave behind. I just want to leave a committed life behind.”

a 15 años del asesinato de Guillem Agulló

"Guillem Agulló, ni olvido ni perdón", la frase que nos recuerda la muerte de Guillem Agulló. Ahora hace 15 años desde que Guillem fue asesinado por Pedro Cuevas, fascista que después de cumplir una condena de solo 4 años, ha continuado la práctica fascista y se ha presentado como candidato a las elecciones municipales con la extrema derecha.
Estas palabras, además, se han convertido en el recordatorio de la falta de justícia y impunidad de las agresiones fascistas, de antes y de ahora, y la perpetuación del terror fascista que no se para. Pero también de que el antifascismo no se olvida de las personas asesinadas, ni de sus agresores, y que continúa la lucha para acabar con la impunidad y el fascismo que ya debería haber desaparecido de nuestra casa.

Aquestes paraules, a més, s'han convertit en el recordatori de la manca de justícia i impuntitat de les agressions feixistes, d'abans i d'ara, i la perpetuació del terror feixista que no s'atura. Però també de que l'antifeixisme no s'oblida de les persones assassinades, ni dels seus agressors, i que la seva lluita continua per acabar amb la impunitat i el feixisme que ja hauria d'haver desaparegut a casa nostra.

Labour party humiliated by protest at election congress

Aotearoa, 12.04.2008 06:12

The Labour Party and its cabal of ministers including Cullen, Maharey, King, Laban, Goff and Horomia were humiliated at a protest today outside of their election year congress by people holding them responsible for a range of issues. Helen Clark’s speech was interrupted and ministers were forced outside when a fire alarm went off at approximately 2:20pm. Cullen sought refugee behind his mummy as he walked outside, but that didn’t stop him being confronted by people who had been arrested on October 15th.

Members of the Labour Party assaulted people in an attempt to protect their ‘co-leader’ from being targeted. The October 15th Solidarity crew along with whanau from Te Urewera organised a march that went through town in advance of their arrival at the Labour Party Conference. Around 100 protestors gathered at 12noon at Te Aro Park and marched to the Town Hall. For approximately an hour, there was noisy demonstration with a sit-in blockade at one entrance.

Mexico: Two indigenous media activists killed at Oaxaca

Aotearoa, 12.04.2008 05:10

On April 7, two indigenous Triqui women who worked at the community radio station La Voz que Rompe el Silencio (The Voice that Breaks the Silence), in the autonomous municipality of San Juan Copala (Mixteca region), were shot and murdered while on their way to Oaxaca City to participate in the State Forum for the Defense of the Rights of the Peoples of Oaxaca. Three other people were injured.

The two community radio activists were supposed to coordinate the working group for Community and Alternative Communication: Community Radio, Video, Press, and Internet, at the State Forum for the Defense of the Rights of the People of Oaxaca, which was to begin on April 9 in the auditorium of the teachers union in Oaxaca. The Center for Community Support Working Together (CACTUS) released a statement denouncing the murders and demanding that the state authorities investigate and punish those responsible for the crime. Twenty 7.62 caliber bullet shells were found at the site of the murders, along with other arms including an AK-47. International supporters have been asked to contact their local embassies and consulates and organize demonstrations condemning the paramilitary repression of indigenous women and community media projects.
