Обновление сайта: Flash Video на Индимедии

Belarus, 15.05.2008 17:07

Благодаря интеграции в движок Samizdat свободного видеоплеера Flowplayer на нашем сайте появилась возможность просматривать видеофайлы в форматах flv и mp4 в онлайне. Закачивать эти файлы можно так же, как и любые другие видеофайлы, а чтобы просмотреть – нужно установить плагин Flash (кроме стандартного плагина Adobe, Flowplayer работает также и со свободными плагинами Gnash и swfdec) и включить JavaScript (рекомендую Firefox-плагин NoScript, который убирает JavaScript и Flash со всех сайтов, кроме тех, которым вы доверяете).

На сайте Flowplayer описано, как создавать flv из любого видеофайла. Если вкратце:

ffmpeg -i source.avi -vcodec flv destination.flv Преимущества по сравнению с YouTube:
  • просмотр в онлайне не отменяет возможность скачать исходный flv-файл без лишних прыжков с бубном
  • пока ваше видео соответствует нашему общественному договору, оно никуда не денется и останется рядом с остальными в…



Лукашенко помогает партизанам из FARC?

Belarus, 15.05.2008 17:07

Интересное авторское расследование, посвященное темным сторонам белорусской приватизации, появилось на сайте финансовых новостей АФН.

Следующий пассаж претендует на статус скандального разоблачения:

Авторам этих строк из двух независимых источников стало известно, что инвестиции, якобы предоставляемые Келером, (Прим.: то ли инвестором, то ли мошенником, участвующим в проекте разработок бурого угля в Полесье), могут иметь колумбийское происхождение, а именно могут являться деньгами терпящей поражение в гражданской войне колумбийской левацкой группировки FARC. Учитывая “белый статус” белорусской банковской системы, а также крепкую связь между Лукашенко и другом FARC – венесуэльским президентом Чавесом – следует отметить, что версия интересна, но требует изучения и подтверждения.

Кто что думает по поводу этой версии? Есть ли дополнительная информация, подтверждающая …



Запужванні пратэстуючых жыхароў Дружнага і Свіслачы

Belarus, 15.05.2008 17:07

Учора 12 мая, з 14 да 19 гадзін, у адміністрацыйным корпусе ЦЭЦ-5 ізноўку было цесна ад высокіх гасцей. Унушальная дэлегацыя прадстаўнікоў Саўміна чарговы раз спрабавала пераканаць у слушнасці, своечасовасці і выгодзе ідэі пабудовы завода па вытворчасці ядахімікатаў ЗАТ “Август-бел”.

Фармальна – гэта быў тлумачальны візіт міністра энэргетыкі Азярца на падведамасны аб’ект з мэтаю “супакоіць работнікаў і даць аб’ектыўную інфармацыю, датычную планаў пабудовы завода па вырабу хімічных сродкаў абароны раслін ЗАТ “Август-бел”. А разам з ім прыехалі кіраўнікі НАН, Міністэрства прыродных рэсурсаў, і цэлага шэрагу міністэрстваў і ведамстваў. Запрошаныя таксама былі кіраўнікі Свіслацкага пасялковага і Пухавіцкай раённага выканкамаў. Гэтым разам вырашылі абысціся без запрашэння дэпутатаў.

Яшчэ перад “сустрэчай з працаўнікамі” адбылася кароткая “планёрка” якую вёў міністар Азярэц і на якой прысутнічалі збольшага чыноўнікі. Рашэнне адно – трэба прадэманстраваць згоду працоўнага калектыва і ж…



Ночной субботник против уплотнительной застройки

Belarus, 15.05.2008 17:07

Утром во вторник 13 мая во дворе дома #20 по минской улице Гамарника появились рабочие в оранжевых касках, начавшие браво возводить глухой деревянный забор вокруг детской площадки.

К вечеру жителям дома был отрезан проход к аптеке, магазину, ЖЭСу. На опоясанной забором детской площадке сиротливо лежали вырванные из земли с корнем качели и лесенки. А также возвыщалась строительная бытовка и горы бетонных блоков. Каких-либо опознавательных знаков на заборе не наблюдалось.

А уже примерно в 10 вечера неизвестные граждане разобрали около 100 метров бесхозного ограждения. Подошедший наряд милиции застал лишь жильцов, живо обсуждавших появление и исчезновение таинственного забора. Оказавшийся поблизости прораб ЗАО “Сервисстрой” взял на себя ответственность за самоуправство. По его словам, снос детской площадки был проведен с одобрения горисполкома в рамках строительства на этом пятачке четырехподьездного жилого дома. Подрядчик — ООО “Карпович”.

Жильцы высказали категорическое неприятие но…

Bike to Work Day on May 15th

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.05.2008 14:09

Thursday, May 15th is Bike to Work Day. It will also be a Spare the Air Day, as the Bay Area Air Quality Management District predicts high levels of ozone in the air. Public transit in the Bay Area will not be free, as it has often been on past Spare the Air Days, so people all over the Bay Area will choose two-wheeled transportation on that day. Several cities will have "Energizer" Stations with giveaways of items such as snacks and mussette and tote bags in the morning.

Sea Lion Deaths Blamed on &quot;Heat Prostration.&quot; OBVIOUS LIE

Portland, 15.05.2008 06:38

The corporate media is now reporting what we assumed they would: That nature is to blame for the deaths of six trapped sea lions, and not foul play. Because, as we all know, Homeland Security is keeping our dams very secure, and no one could possibly have gotten past them to close those traps and kill those sea lions. No, it must have been the heat. Yeh. That's it. The heat. ...But wait.

City Hall Protesters Meet With Mayor

Portland, 15.05.2008 06:38

Responding to an invitation issued by the office of Mayor Tom Potter on Monday, elected representatives from the homeless camp outside City Hall met with the Mayor at 3:00pm Tuesday. Scheduling only a half an hour for the meeting (his press conference was to begin at 3:30pm) Potter sauntered out around 3:50 flustered and red in the face, perhaps upset that the meeting that took two weeks of avid protest to get had lasted more than a half hour.

Presidential Candidates Get Specific on Trade

Rogue Valley, 14.05.2008 21:10

National polling results released May 1 by the Pew Research Center found, "There is now broad agreement that free trade negatively affects wages, jobs and economic growth in America. By greater than six-to-one, the public says free trade agreements result in job losses rather than in new jobs." More so, a greater majority of independent voters had a negative view of the impact of free trade than registered Democrats.

Southern Oregonians are active in the Oregon Fair Trade Campaign (ORFTC) and citizens in the State of Jefferson (Northern California, too!) stand in unity with the FAIR TRADE WORK being done by ORFTC. Check out the newest report...

Detencion de catro integrantes do indymedia Ecuador.

Galiza, 14.05.2008 18:10

Detenhen arbitrariamente e registram viviendas de catro integrantes do Indymedia Ecuador.
Nós, quenes fazemos indymedia Ecuador, ratificamos a denúncia da
perseguiçom por parte da polícia em contra do nosso colectivo de
comunicaçom independente, a mesma que se evidência no feito de que se
mantenha na prissom ao nosso companheiro Guillermo León Garcia,
alcumado como Antonio, baixo a acusaçom por parte da Interpol de usar
documentaçom falsa. Rejeitamos energicamente o violento operativo da
noite do 6 de março na nossa contra, o qual fixo-se sem provas de nada
dos que lhes acusava no momeneto e incluiu o assalto de dúas casa dos
companheiros por mais de quarenta agentes do GIR e da Interpol armados
até os dentes, com ametralhadoras, pistolas, gases, encarapuzados com
passamontanhas, que seqüestrarom, incomunicarom e maltratarom física e
psicológicamente a cinco companheiros.
Achamos absurdo empregar métodos militares de forças especiais para colher a companheiros por motivos de investigaçom e esigimos ao Ministério de Governo que aclarem urgentemente os feitos. Vemos umha total incompativilidade entre a acçom policial e os princípios éticos do governo democrático e custa-nos moito crer que Fernando Bustamante, Ministro de governo, tenha ordenado semelhante operativo que ate poderia ser considerado como terrorismo de Estado.
Pois, segundo temos entendido, a intervençom da INTERPOL no nosso pais é ilegal sem a autorizaçom do devandito ministro. Ou sera que o GIR (grupo de intervençom e rescate)
significa Grupo Independiente de Repressom?

Polk Street Séance to Summon Ghosts, Raise the Dead and Receive Messages from Beyond

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.05.2008 01:42

On Tuesday, June 3rd, at the intersection of Polk and Hemlock Streets, Gay Shame will conduct a séance to "summon the ghosts of Polk Street's past", defend street culture and protest Lower Polk Neighbors, whose "business improvement district" has been slowly squeezing the spirit out of Polk Street. Mary writes, "Because the gentrification of the Polk Street area in the Tenderloin is an intersection of so many different wars City Hall is waging -- against people of color, sex workers, homeless people, immigrants, drug addicts, youth, and marginalized queer/trans people -- it's the perfect place to channel voices of resistance."

Vous pourrez observer que ces luttes ont prises des formes variées, par leurs cultures et organisations, mais qu’elles ont toutes en commun d’avoir réussies à déloger leurs nantis de leurs trônes... qu’ils ou elles soient allemands, danoises ou mexicains!

Tag der Landlosen in Basel

Switzerland, 13.05.2008 20:37

 Am 17. April, dem internationalen Tag der Landlosen, nahmen Menschen an über 50 Aktionen in 25 verschiedenen Ländern teil. Eine davon fand vor dem Hauptsitz des Schweizer Agrarkonzerns «Syngenta» in Basel statt. Hauptanlass dazu war die Ermordung eines Landlosen in Brasilien im Bundesstaat Paraná, durch eine von Syngenta beauftragte Sicherheitsfirma. Syngenta hatte im Bundesstaat Paraná in Nähe eines Naturschutzgebietes genmanipuliertes Saatgut ausgebracht, obwohl es dort per Gesetz verboten ist. LandbesetzerInnen der Landlosenbewegung MST protestierten dagegen; der Konzern setzte die Sicherheitsfirma auf sie an, die einen Aktivisten erschoss und andere verletzte. Anlässlich der UN-Biodiversitäts-Verhandlungen MOP4 und COP9, die im Mai 2008 in Bonn stattfinden, ruft ein Bündnis aus sozialen Bewegungen und AktivistInnen unter dem Motto «Natur für Menschen - nicht fürs Business» zu weiteren Protesten auf.

Indymedia Journalists Targeted in Ecuador, Five Arrested

Aotearoa, 12.05.2008 23:10

Ecuadorian police detained five journalists associated with Ecuador Indymedia late Tuesday night, May 6th. Four of the five were released from custody on Wednesday afternoon. The government says that the four activists were detained because of their relationship with the fifth detainee, Ecuadorian resident and Colombian national Antonio Alcívar.

The government at first refused to issue a statement on the matter or inform the detainees of the reason for their arrests. The Regional Foundation for Assistance in Human Rights (INREDH) noted that this was a violation of the detainees' constitutional right to be clearly informed of the reason for their detention along with the identities of those who ordered and carried out the arrests.
