Tornen a aturar les obres del pla Caufec - Porta BCN

Abans de les set del matí, quatre persones s'han encadenat a dos bidons de ciment a les entrades i sortides d'un sector de les obres del pla Caufec a Esplugues de Llobregat. Estan aturant part de les obres del megaprojecte urbanístic al qual s'hi oposen diferents Associacions Veïnals des de fa 17 anys quan el govern local (PSOE) va promoure la destrucció de la muntanya de Sant Pere Màrtir a base de gratacels, oficines, habitatges de luxe i un gran centre comercial. L'acció forma part de la defensa activa de Collserola i per exigir l'alliberament immediat d'en Franki de Terrassa. Aquestes persones tenen intenció de deslligar-se per poder anar a la manifestació convocada el proper dissabte 24 de maig a les 18h, així com a la Botifarrada a l'especulació amb correfoc i concerts posterior.

Concentració a las 19:30h AVUI 19 de maig a la plaça de l'Ajuntament

Manifestació contra el pla Caufec DISSABTE 24 maig, 18h plaça de l'Ajuntament

Detencions d'activistes a Indymedia Equador

El dia dimarts 6 de maig, més de 40 agents del Grup d'Intervenció i Rescat (GIR) de la policía d'Equador van detindre a cinc activistes d'Indymedia Ecuador que estaven a punt de marxar cap a la Cimera dels Pobles a Perú. Els agents, armats amb ametralladores i amb les cares cobertes amb passamuntanyes, després de colpejar i amenaçar de mort als activistes, van portar-los en cotxe fins a les seves cases, sempre sense informar-los de les raons de la detenció, i allí van sequestrar discs durs, llibres, CDs i fins i tot enganxines. Després d'una nit incomunicats i sota interrogació, quatre d'ells van ser alliberats sense càrrecs. Un dels activistes, Antonio, de nacionalitat colombiana, continua en aquest moment empresonat, acusat suposadament de tenir un document fals. Indymedia denúncia la desproporció i la violència de la actuació de les forces policials i demana una explicació al govern equatorià. Darrera d'aquesta actuació, a part de la criminalització dels mitjans alternatius, s'amaguen interessos més complexos, d'entitats com la Interpol i la CIA, que busquen extendre la seva "guerra al terrorisme" també al territori d'Equador.

Detenciones de activistas de Indymedia Ecuador

El día martes 6 de mayo, más de 40 agentes del Grupo de Intervención y Rescate (GIR) de la policía de Ecuador detuvieron cinco activistas de Indymedia Ecuador que estaban a punto de marchar hacia la Cumbre de los Pueblos en Perú. Los agentes, armados con ametralladoras y con las caras cubiertas por pasamontañas, después de golpear y amenazar de muerte a los activistas, los llevaron en coche hacia sus casas, siempre sin informarlos de las razones de la detención, y allí secuestraron discos duros, libros, CDs e incluso pegatinas. Después de una noche incomunicados y bajo interrogación, cuatro de ellos fueron liberados sin cargos. Uno de los activistas, Antonio, de nacionalidad colombiana, sigue en este momento preso, acusado supuestamente de tener un documento falso. Indymedia denuncia la desproporción y la violencia de la actuación policial y pide explicaciones al gobierno de Ecuador. Detrás de esta actuación, a parte la criminalización de los medios alternativos, se esconden intereses más complejos, de entidades como la Interpol y la CIA, que buscan extender su "guerra al terrorismo" también al territorio de Ecuador.

The Walk to Freedom: The Fight for Criminal Record Reform

Boston, 19.05.2008 02:09

A coalition of Massachusetts organizations have organized a four-day walk from Worcester to Boston to mobilize for CORI reform, a criminal record checking system that advocates say have kept many workers, mostly people of color, out of jobs. The walk began Sunday in Worcester City Hall and is expected to arrive to Bunker Community College by Thursday around 10:30 am. One of the participating organizations, EPOCA (Ex-prisoners and Prisoners Organizing for Community Advancement), is hoping to mobilize as many members of the community as possible on its way to Boston.



They are rich because we are poor

Aotearoa, 19.05.2008 01:11

Just weeks after the Child Poverty Action Group released a report on child poverty in New Zealand and Auckland City Councillor Cathy Casey announced her resignation as Auckland City Council's child and family advocate, after the council's Community Services Committee voted down a motion requesting officers report to the committee on ways in which the council could contribute to alleviating child poverty in Auckland city, No Right Turn has reported that, "New Zealanders will now be subsidising the racing industry - and specifically, its richest breeders and horse owners - to the tune of $9 million a year…by directly subsidising prize pools." And the King of Tonga is shamelessly splashing out more than NZ$4 million on his coronation while New Zealand will be forking out $11.5 million in aid money to the regime this year. Horse Racing | Aristocrat's Party ]

From the report: "In the last decades of the 20th century New Zealand had the fastest growth in income and wealth inequality in the OECD. Little has been done to improve the situation since then. Child poverty remains a major concern in New Zealand, even after the implementation of Working for Families (WFF). In 2001, NZ ranked near the bottom of the rich nations’ index measuring infant mortality, children’s health and safety, teenage pregnancy, and immunisation. It also ranked bottom in the percentage of 15-19 year olds in full- or part-time education, and in the number of deaths from accidents and injuries. Despite the better economy and significant increase in paid employment, between 2000 and 2004 the proportion of all children in severe and significant hardship increased by a third, to 26 percent."

Two years after six local activists were arrested on Cinco de Mayo at Story and King Roads on the Eastside of San Jose, the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office dropped all charges against the last of the defendants, Brian Helmle.

Conscientious Objector Status—Who Should Decide?

DC, 17.05.2008 20:10

It is a fallacious and legalistic straw man ploy for any society or organization (such as the Department of Defense) to arrogate, as definition, that an individual must oppose “all” war on religious or ethical grounds to be considered a “conscientious objector”. Simply to be “conscientious” means to act from one’s “own” conscience—not from the collective hearsay of any particular group or on legalistic grounds of some corporate presumption. The individual conscience is the moral compass of conscientious authority.

Indymedia Activists Targeted in Ecuador, Five Arrested

United Kingdom, 17.05.2008 17:38

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.

For a detailed account of the violent arrests see the English translations of the communiques from IMC-Ecuador (Sp): 1 | 2 | 3 | 4.

Tree Cutting Photos from the McHenry Library Addition

Santa Cruz, CA, 17.05.2008 06:38

There is a story that the UCSC tour guides still occasionally tell about the founding UCSC Chancellor Dean McHenry: Allegedly, during initial construction in 1964, any tree on campus over 12 inches in diameter had to have the chancellor's personal approval before it could be cut. In the construction of the road to the small parking lot behind the main library, there was a spot where the road was squeezed between a second growth redwood and a steep bank. The construction crew and campus planners asked the chancellor for approval to cut the tree, and he allegedly refused and told them to find another way.

April2008 - actiedagen krijgen een bitter staartje

Op vrijdag 11 april werd in het kader van de April2008Nijmegen gekraakt en meteen omgetoverd tot een Sociaal centrum met weggeefwinkel en exporuimte.

Reeds de volgende dag werd het pand al bedreigd met ontruiming. De kraker gingen echter niet bij de pakken neerzitten en kwamen in actie. Die nacht nog werd een spandoek opgehangen.Op de avond van 13 mei werd de ontruiming voorbereid, maar na overleg met de gemeente leek de onmiddelijke dreiging voorlopig van de baan. Later die week werd het duidelijk dat de gemeente alsnog wilde laten ontruimen op 429 omdat het gebouw af en toe gebruikt werd voor brandweeroefeningen. De kraker betwijfelden of dat wel tructureel gebruik is en spanden een kort geding tegen de staat aan. Ondertussen werden de activiteiten gewoon verder gezet. Op 3 mei ging er zelfs al een festival door.

Op woensdag 7 mei besliste de rechter in het nadeel van de krakers. Op vrijdag 9 mei probeerden drie politie-agenten het pand binnen te komen. De de volgende donderdag werd duidelijk dat de dag erop /a> zou worden.[video] Met een druk bezochte en militantelawaaidemo maakten de Nijmegers duidelijk dat de Lastpost er tijdens zijn korte bestaan in geslaagd was een belangrijke plek te worden voor heel wat mensen.

Buffalo Advocates Rally in Helena

Portland, 16.05.2008 16:39

With banners and tombstones in hand, and strong hearts that have withstood a season of tremendous buffalo slaughter, Buffalo Field Campaign volunteers trekked to Montana's capitol, Helena, on Wednesday, May 15, for a rally to draw attention to Montana Governor Schweitzer's role in the shameful slaughter of America's last wild bison. Buffalo Field Campaign was joined by other friends of buffalo, including local residents and members of a newly formed citizen action group, Buffalo Allies of Bozeman.

At the end of the event, people walked into the capitol and up to the Governor's office to present this [Buffalo Bill] "award" to Montana's Governor Brian Schweitzer for his role in the largest wild buffalo slaughter since the 1800s. This is the same governor who promised "more tolerance" for wild bison in Montana. Of course, the Governor was out of the office and unable to receive his token in person, but an intern was sent out to hear our concerns in his stead.

Zatrzymania aktywistów ekwadorskich Indymediów

Poland, 16.05.2008 15:40

5 uczestników Indymedia Ekwador zostało aresztowanych w zeszły wtorek, 6 maja. Zatrzymano ich na ulicy, skąd następnie zostali przewiezieni do własnych mieszkań, gdzie dokonano rewizji, a potem do aresztu. Aktywistom nie podano powodu ich zatrzymania, co wg INREDH - lokalnej organizacji obrony praw człowieka stanowi pogwałcenie ich konstytucyjnych praw (w tym prawa do informacji nt. podstawy aresztu i tożsamości oraz przynależności organizacyjnej osób dokonujących zatrzymania). Akcję przeciw działaczom IMC przeprowadzili wspólnie funkcjonariusze Interpolu i specjalnych jednostek policji. W trakcie nalotu zarekwirowano należące do wolontariuszy rzeczy: komputery, dyski, książki, plakaty, ziny etc. W czasie przetrzymywania dziennnikarzy IMC w więzieniu, nie pozwolono im na kontaktowanie się z adwokatami, zostali rozdzieleni, zmuszono ich do poddania się przesłuchaniom w obecności prawnika policji.

Senate just throws out FCC ruling that would have allowed MORE media consolidation

Portland, 16.05.2008 05:38

Many of us went up to Seattle to fight the FCC, knowing all along that the deck was stacked. They wanted to hand over a huge victory to the corporate police state: They wanted to allow anyone with enough riches to take control over all of the media they want. That means, they would have been able to control what we see, hear, learn, and think. And they had the votes to override the voices of millions of citizens who opposed the plan. ...Or so they thought.

While the FCC ignored all of our voices and pushed the rule changes ahead in spite of monumental outcry, it seems we have been heard anyway. Moments ago, the Senate votes to throw out the FCC's decision.

Here is a communique from Free Press Action: Just moments ago, by a near-unanimous vote, the Senate stood up to Big Media. They voted to throw out the FCC decision to let the largest media companies swallow up even more local media. This is simply an astounding victory, and it would not have happened without the massive grassroots effort by you and thousands of others who called their senators, sent more than a quarter million letters, posted thousands of pictures and stories on StopBigMedia.com, and testified at public hearings held by the FCC.

It was your dedication that made today's Senate win possible. Today was a huge step forward, but there is still much to do. The fight against the FCC now moves to the House, where our elected representatives need to hear from us.



Rise UPP!

Portland, 16.05.2008 05:38

After the Portland Police department swept protestors from City Hall at 5:30am, [on Thursday May 15th] the United Poor People have regrouped and continued their protest. We are calling for new ways to address the lack of adequate housing for the people of Portland in the hopes that it can serve as a model for other cities. More long-term solutions are being debated by UPP such as searching for ways to provide affordable housing for people who are poor. Innovative changes must be addressed with proper representation for the poor instead of solely allowing existing service providers to make decisions.

The protest has been ongoing for over 20 days, starting April 25th, since police performed sweeps at many of the common camp sites that people were staying at. Larger issues have become key such as the lack of adequate housing, shelters that provide space for those with mental and physical health issues, couples and people with pets, as well as for sexual minorities and increased space for women. The existing shelters, which police gave information for during the sweep, are already full as are the beds that Mayor Tom Potter has trumped up for the media.

Protesters have stated that they would stop sleeping at City Hall if a temporary Green Zone was approved to allow those without houses to camp in a safe environment. This would require repealing the Camping ordinance and protesters would like to see the Sit and Lie ordinance repealed as well. Please come out to support members of your community because this issue effects all people. Any time is good for people to come down but especially on Wednesday morning for the City Council meeting at 9:00am.

For more information please contact UnitedPoorPeople@gmail.com.
