Citizens Hunger-Strike Against NW Natural’s Liquefied Natural Gas Proposal

Portland, 03.06.2008 13:39

Citizens of Oregon have begun a ten (10) day hunger-strike on the main entrance of the NW Natural Energy Company headquarters building to bring awareness to the fact that the Palomar Gas Transmission System (PGT) is a serious and intolerable threat to the ecological and social integrity of Oregon.

NW Natural and Palomar are preparing to install a massive pipeline through over 500 miles of Oregon's public and private property. This will result in devastating impacts on streams, rivers and waterways, wildlife habitat areas, wilderness, and small family farms. NW Natural is carelessly destroying these precious ecosystems for private gains. All fuel piped through the PGT system will go to supply California with liquefied natural gas. There are no direct benefits for Oregonians who are affected. As we stand on the verge of global environmental crises, NW Natural is stepping in the wrong direction.

SDS Takes Over Evergreen State College with Style

Boston, 03.06.2008 04:09

It has been twelve days since the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) took over the fourth floor of an administration building in Evergreen State College (TESC) to protest the unilateral decision of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Art Costantino, for taking away their student group status. The sit-in was originally organized “to draw attention to the diminishing rights of students at TESC and to regain SDS’ status as a student organization” but it quickly evolved into a mobilization of wits against the establishment. Since the takeover, students have organized political concerts, speeches, and radical workshops that range from queer theory to direct action and economic alternatives to neoliberalism. They have also re-named the building where they're staging the sit-in, the People's University.



Nottingham Protests in Support of Detained Resident

United Kingdom, 03.06.2008 04:08

The detention and imminent deportation of Amdani Juma, a well-known and widely liked local activist, has generated considerable anger in Nottingham. There have been two well attended demonstrations in the Market Square, one on Saturday 31 May and a second on Monday 2 June. The latter was particularly successful at generating media interest, going out live on Central News.

The anger felt by many at Amdani's detention was only compounded by police intimidation of participants in the first demonstration that they should have sought permission and would be expected to do so for the second. This suggests a worrying ignorance of the law on the part of the Sergeant 2471. He told protesters that Section 11 of the Public Order Act 1986 required that they obtain permission for any assemblies, despite the fact that that section clearly relates only to processions and marches and not to static assemblies. When it came to it, the police presence on Monday evening was minimal, although a Community Protection Officer with a CCTV camera attached to his head was prominently visible.

El rector de la ULL expedienta a un alumno portavoz de AMEC, en base a un decreto fascista de 1954

Canarias, 03.06.2008 00:11

La Universidad de La Laguna (ULL) ha incoado un expediente disciplinario al portavoz en el Claustro de la Asamblea del Movimiento Estudiantil Canario (AMEC), Adán González Navarro. Se da la circunstancia de que la incoación de este expediente la realiza el propio rector de la ULL, Eduardo Doménech, y AMEC se ha mostrado en contra de las "políticas privatizadoras" que tanto él como su equipo están llevando a cabo en la institución, como la pérdida del carácter asistencial de los Colegios Mayores (CC. MM.) y la Residencia Universitaria (R. U.) o el nuevo calendario, "implantado con la excusa de la privatización de facto que supone la Convergencia Europea".

El expediente se justifica en una supuesta agresión a un segurita. Pero da la casualidad que hay un video de un programa de la televisión autonómica, donde al final la locutora dice textualmente: "(…) afortunadamente esa manifestación se saldó sin violencia, sin actos violentos (…)". De haberlos habido, no dudamos que los hubieran denunciado y manipulado en extremo, como suelen hacer los medios de (in)comunicación del sistema.

Pero es que, además, la base "jurídica" del expediente se hace en base a un decreto de 1954 que regula el "Reglamento de disciplina académica". Quizás lo más grave no es que basen el expediente en un decreto fascista, sino que puedan hacerlo, dejando al descubierto, una vez más, la mentira que ha sido la llamada "transición" en el estado español.



5 Years Later, Official Reveals US Targeted Hotel Palestine in Baghdad Prior to Killing of Two Journalists

United States, 02.06.2008 23:42

Last month marked the fifth anniversary of the US military shelling of the Hotel Palestine in Baghdad. The attack killed two journalists: Reuters cameraman Taras Protsyuk and Jose Couso, a cameraman for the Spanish television network, Telecinco. The Pentagon has called the killings accidental, but in a broadcast exclusive aired a few weeks ago, Army Sgt. Adrienne Kinne (Ret.) revealed that she saw secret US military documents which listed the hotel as a possible target. Kinne also disclosed that she was personally ordered to eavesdrop on Americans working for news organizations and NGOs in Iraq. Originally, Kinne actually released this information last July, but her story was not picked up by any significant news outlets. After the airing of the interview on Democracy Now!, however, the International Federation of Journalists condemned the attacks and called for a full, independent investigation. Soon thereafter, Reuters followed suit by calling for a new investigation into the attack.

Lotte diffuse per territori vivibili

Switzerland, 02.06.2008 19:37

Nel nostro cantone, sempre più spesso, gruppi di cittadini si mobilitano, organizzandosi dal basso per opporsi alle poco oculate scelte in campo ambientale dei governanti.
Lotte molto diverse che hanno però in comune il desiderio di intendere la gestione del territorio e dell'ambiente che ci circonda in maniera più dolce e vicina alle esigenze dell'essere umano e non, ce lo auguriamo, semplici sintomi della sindrome NINBY.

Grande eco mediatico hanno avuto le resistenze popolari nei confronti del sovradimensionato stand di tiro sul Monte Ceneri (che aprirebbe le porte a redditizie speculazioni su cui sorgono oggi gli stand regionali), la grande opposizione che ha fermato la deleteria "Variante 95" che avrebbe tagliato a metà il piano di Magadino e l'infruttuoso tentativo di evitare la costruzione di un gigantesco ed inquinante inceneritore per i rifiuti a Giubiasco.

Ma sono parecchie le lotte di dimensione minore che sono in corso.
Dalla Capriasca sono state raccolte oltre 1'500 firme proponendo una moratoria sulla costruzione di antenne di telefonia mobile. L'elettrosmog preoccupa anche i cittadini di Bellinzona, di Melide di Novazzano e di Novaggio che, in maniera diversa si sono mobilitati contro questa nuova fonte di inquinamento su cui ancora si sa poco.

Nei paesi attorno a Sonvico-Dino, si è costituita nelle scorse settimane l'associazione "Territori vivibili" che vuole contrastare la posa di una nuova antenna UMST che irradierebbe tutti i comuni circostanti (vedi mappa). Ne è nata una vera e propria battaglia con Swisscom e Orange. Anche in questo caso oltre 1500 firme sono state raccolte.

> Mappa delle antenne in Ticino

Gli abitanti della Val Onsernone (storica valle popolata da neorurali) si stanno ribellando alla costruzione di una diga, su territorio italiano, che prosciugherebbe le acque del torrente Isorno. Le acque del Ceresio sono invece solcate da Pirati che navigano e praticano arrembaggi per rivendicare l'accesso alle rive sempre più spesso occupate da scempi edilizi.
Nel mendrisiotto si è creato il "comitato contro la superstrada" per evitare la costruzione di un nastro d'asfalto a scorrimento veloce che collegherebbe, con danni evidenti, Mendrisio e Varese.

Per tutte le persone in lotta per dei territori vivibili nel nostro cantone, non possono che suonare familiari le parole dell'EZLN da una presa di posizione (2) dello scorso anno: "La terra ed il territorio non sono solo fonti di lavoro e di alimenti, sono pure cultura, comunità, storia, origine, sogni, futuro, vita e madre."

Demonstration let's stop the war: Now, like 5 years ago... No to war!

Saturday March the 15th, 17h - Universitat Sq.

* Troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan * Not a single attack to Iran * Justice for Palestine

5 years ago millions of people of the whole world raised their voices against the threaten of war against Iraq. It is now obvious that war has only make things worse on the region.

In Iraq, millions of people are now refugees; dozens of thousands are prisoners of the occupants; and the health and education systems have been destroyed. The last year there were more combats in Afganistan than in any other year since the beginning of the occupation in 2001. At Palestine, the population suffers the effects of the economic boycott and the israeli attacks, being carried with the support of the European and North America governments. In all over the world, the attacks to human rights spread more and more; The illegal prison of Guantanamo's 6 years already...

The lies now are he same that the ones of five years ago and while wars and occupations continue, the protests too!

Do women rights matter?

This year, the people who live in this State, and especially the women, are more than fed up and tired of so much hypocritical electoral campaign and of so much attacks to our most basic rights. All the parties state they defend equality for women, but the reality, even on a March 8th, Women's Day, is pretty different. The President decides to date the elections on March 9th, making impossible or more difficult the traditional marches, claims and acts of March 8th, for the Day of Reflection. The party in the opposition illegalizes them. The ruling parties use them as an instrument and even try to move them to the March 7th. What happens with women's rights? Do the matter or do they not? They matter to us and the struggles is necessary, what do you think?

MS. STOVALL'S CANTICLES

Boston, 01.06.2008 18:09

New England is hardly known for an absence of culture or a failure to appreciate the arts. In fact, Cambridge, Massachusetts can legitimately be tagged as the epicenter, the cradle of the tension and brawls between the cultural melieus of tradition and modernity. Sparks fly from these collisions and engagements on a daily, if not hourly schedule. The work of Suesan Stovall, now on exhibit in the Neil and Angelica Rudenstine Gallery of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University is an example of such an encounter. For in this canticle, Ms. Stovall has fronted and framed her song and stories, and in the house that Henry Louis “Skip” Gates built, her images, both stinging and sacred, float in the ether as if she’s held a backstage pass to the African American experience. They are neither burdened nor ponderous, yet insisting of place somewhere, talisman like, and in all American households.

AFSCME Local 3299's strike, planned for June 4 - 5, has been postponed indefinitely. UC hired the infamous anti-union law firm Littler Mendelson, a firm that boasts on their website about their expertise in avoiding unionization and busting unions. Suddenly, UC Executives claimed to have new proposals for AFSCME and asked for negotiations to resume -- even though they already gave AFSCME their "last, best, and final proposal." In the eyes of a Republican-dominated state labor board, these alleged new proposals were enough to overturn AFSCME's right to strike.

With Ungar Furs shut down for Memorial Day, protesters used the Saturday morning regular protest time to write educational messages on the sidewalk in chalk. Several protesters gathered to continue the presence in front of the store, which sells the pelts of animals who have had their necks broken, were gassed to death or anally electrocuted in the name of vanity.

The animals used for Ungar's unethical products do not get holidays off, and Ungar Furs will not get any Saturdays off. Remarkably, the fact that the store was closed did not seem to make any difference in their daily sales, as roughly the same number of customers approached the store as when the store is open: 0.

Michigan ELF Informant Recorded Conversations with Activists

Portland, 31.05.2008 19:41

The North American Earth Liberation Prisoners Support Network has posted new information on Frank Ambrose's cooperation with the federal government in a series of cases pertaining to Earth Liberation Front (ELF) actions in Michigan. As part of his guilty plea, Ambrose agreed to provide information on actions of the Earth Liberation Front (ELF). Disturbingly, at various points in affidavits in the case Ambrose is singled out by the government for involvement in legal activities.

The Earth Liberation Prisoners Support Network is reporting that Ambrose has produced countless hours of recordings with other activists in the year before his indictment:

One Step Closer to Health-Care for all Portland Public School Children

Portland, 31.05.2008 19:41

Portland, Ore. - May 27, 2008 - The WhyNotPortland campaign today submitted 30,520 signatures for its ballot initiative to provide health insurance for uninsured school children in Portland. The initiative will require 27,255 valid signatures from registered Portland voters to be certified for the November 2008 general election ballot in Portland.

The plan would allow children to see their pediatrician or other primary care provider for a $10 co-pay while providing coverage for hospitalizations and other major illnesses. Other highlights include no exclusions for pre-existing medical conditions, near immediate eligibility for newly enrolled Portland public school students and coverage would begin February 1, 2009.

Volunteers will continue to gather more signatures until the initiative is certified for the ballot. For more information about the initiative, please visit www.whynotportland.org or contact Dr. Gregg Coodley at (503) 452-0915.

San Francisco Bay Area, 31.05.2008 19:40

California is holding an election on June 3rd. Statewide the election will be for propositions 98 and 99. Propositions 98 and 99 are aimed at changing the government's power to take private property. Proposition 98 will abolish rent control and other renter protections.
