The Mortgage Crisis in the USA

Boston, 19.06.2008 15:08

Commentators complain of "partisanship" in Washington. Society's problems are said to result from infighting between parties. We should celebrate, then, because Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a plan to end the mortgage crisis. What solution do they offer? Handouts to Big Business, and "fiscal discipline" for the rest.



Queer Liberation and Anarchist Communism

Boston, 19.06.2008 15:08

As anarchist communists, it is only logical and consistent with our principles in the struggle for a free humanity that we support the personal, cultural, and institutional fight against patriarchy, hetero-sexism, the gender bi-nary system and all other struggles for queer liberation both in themselves and in their intersectionalities with capitalism, the state, white supremacy, and all other forms of human oppression.

Patrons Gone Wild

Portland, 19.06.2008 05:09

Some patrons of Bluehour restaurant are really rude and aggressive towards protesters, who are chanting and holding signs and talking with people on the sidewalk about he reality of factory farming ducks and geese for "foie gras." Not only did the compassiuonae protesters have to put up with an over tanned man in a tight white tee-shirt questioning their veganism for a drunken hour (especially their shoes, which he thought were made of dead animals, even after the vegan protesters assured him about 10 times that they were vegan), but more people threw water on the protesters. Well, one protester threw water back onto the water throwing Bluehour patron...

Bolivia is burning ::

After the "autonomist" referendum hold on May 4th at Santa Cruz Province, the fascist and racist groups financed by landowners -Nación Camba, Unión Cruceñista - started several shows of strength and violence break outs against indigenous of the region (mainly Collas). International and Spanish Media Corporations adopt an ambiguous posture, leaving the door open to a racist separatism which can allow the landowners oligarchy to negotiate directly with the big global powers.

Coal On Hold - Derbyshire Coal Mine Site Occupied

United Kingdom, 18.06.2008 11:08

Today climate campaigners from ‘Leave it in the Ground’ have occupied the UK Coal’s Lodge House site in Derbyshire by barricading themselves in a disused farm building and taken to the trees on the site of the open cast mine.

Under the cover of darkness activists have secured themselves in the Prospect Farm building, on the site which is about to be devastated by huge machines. Food and supplies have also been taken in for a long term occupation and barricades’ have been set up preventing police form bringing in specialist equipment down Bell Lane, Smalley Derbyshire into the heart of the site. Similarly, people are locked on by their necks behind the doors preventing force being used to gain entry. The protesters are claiming squatter’s rights.

At Lodge House today, Andy Green said “We are here because the single greatest threat to the climate comes from burning coal. Coal fired generation is historically responsible for most of the CO2 in the air today – about half of all carbon dioxide emissions globally. Coal form open cast mines is dirtier than that from deep mines, so it is even worse!"

Anti-Bush Visit Protest Marred by Police Violence and Snatch Arrests

United Kingdom, 18.06.2008 10:13

On Sunday 15th of June, as George W. Bush was making his way to Downing Street for his last state visit to the UK, thousands of people were gathering in Parliament Square following a call from the Stop the War Coalition.

Although the turn out to sunday's protest was much smaller than in 2003 when Bush visited the UK in the high of the Anti-War protest movement, by mid afternoon a crowd of around 2500 determined people were already making clear what they thought of the legacy of George Bush's wars in the Middle East and the US driven War on Terror [Video reoport]. A powerful sound system had been set on the square from where several people, including Brian How, made speeches. Meanwhile the crowd kept demanding the arrest of George Bush for his "terrorist activities and war crimes" in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

The protest had already been banned by the Metropolitan Police from marching through Whitehall, therefore crash barriers and police lines had been set at the southern end of Whitehall to prevent the demonstration from marching forward. At some point, the crowd approached the barriers and police lines to demand their right to demonstrate, but they were faced by a line of baton wielding police that started hitting those at the front. As a result a series of scuffles followed, resulting with some head injuries and bruises to some protesters, and the first wave of arrests.

Eventually, a large number of police wit riot gear took positions to protect the entrance to Whitehall, whilst at the same time groups of TSG and FIT police forces started to carry a series of snatch arrests around the Parliament Square area [Video of arrests]. By the end of the evening 25 people had been arrested, some of which have already been released but others are being charged.

Sábado 21 de junio de 2008, a las 12 horas, frente a la delegación del gobierno (S. C. de Tenerife)
CONCENTRACIÓN contra la directiva de la vergüenza

Teniendo en cuenta que el próximo 18 de junio el Parlamento Europeo pretende aprobar la Directiva de retorno que establece un plazo máximo de 18 meses para la personas migrantes en los CIEs, permite que sea una autoridad administrativa, y no exclusivamente la de un juez, quién decida sobre la detención de las personas migrantes en los centros de internamiento antes de proceder a expulsarlos, y que establece también la detención de menores no acompañados,

DECLARAMOS

1. El conjunto de medidas incluidas en el proyecto de Directiva, representa el más grave atentado al Estado de Derecho en Europa, desde los tiempos del nazismo

2. Establece la primacía de la política represiva de los estados frente a las medidas de carácter social e integrador

3. La Unión Europea, pretende identificar a l@s migrantes como el “enemigo”, que interesa crear, favoreciendo la lógica del control militar y el cierre de fronteras.

4. El objetivo de esta Directiva es quitarse de encima l@s migrantes que al Estado le sobran, para así mantener los costes salariales lo suficientemente bajos para satisfacer “la competitividad de la economía europea”

5. El derecho a la libre circulación de personas, tan claramente consagrado por la Unión y sus estados, queda reducido así a una simple autorización administrativa, concedida en función de las variables necesidades de ganancia y acumulación del capitalismo europeo.

6. El triángulo del poder Sarkozy-Merkel-Berlusconi orienta la política migratoria europea en una dirección claramente regresiva, y exacerba la obsesión securitaria de esta época de crisis, encontrando en l@s migrantes el pretexto para aplicar recortes de libertades contra el conjunto de los derechos ciudadanos.

7. Los 280 CIEs actualmente en suelo europeo, pueden ampliarse y extenderse allende las fronteras, como de hecho ya ocurre con el concurso de gobiernos comprados, para ejercer de carceleros a las puertas de “la fortaleza europea”.

8. El estado español forma parte de esta política de control y detención, sin derechos humanos. Ya ha anunciado la intención de ampliar hasta 60 días el tiempo de retención en los CIEs. Con esto se demuestra que el poder tiene una misma cara: el militarismo.

9. Ante esta agresión a la dignidad humana, a las libertades políticas y a los derechos fundamentales de las personas migrantes,

LA PLATAFORMA TOD@S SOMOS MIGRANTES

1. Nuestro más enérgico rechazo a la indignante y represiva directiva de la verguenza, y a las leyes fascistoides del Gobierno Italiano.

3. Convocar a las organizaciones de migrantes y refugiados, al movimiento social reivindicativo a una jornada de lucha y movilización contra esta Directiva, el cierre de los CIEs, y la garantía de plenos derechos `para todas las personas residentes en el Estado Español y la Unión Europea.

4. Proclamamos que la migración es un derecho humano y que se configura como la respuesta de los pueblos antes las injusticias que genera el sistema capitalista.

5. Defendemos la necesidad de reorientar el gasto público hacia la satisfacción de las necesidades humanas, frente a la locura y despilfarro que significa el gasto militar.

Juneteenth National Freedom Celebration in Philadelphia

In tribute to and commemoration of Juneteenth, the oldest African-American celebrated holiday in the United States. Over 30 Philadelphia community organizations will host programs in the City of Philadelphia related to the Underground Railroad, the Civil War, Freedom, and Juneteenth.

"But, if this part of our history could be told in such a way that those chains of the past, those shackles that physically bound us together against our wills could, in the telling, become spiritual links that willingly bind us together now and into the future - then that painful Middle Passage could become, ironically, a positive connecting line to all of us whether living inside or outside the continent of Africa..."



Finanzkrise weitet sich zur Weltwirtschaftskrise

Germany, 17.06.2008 20:09

Hohe Inflation, teure Rohstoffe, Turbulenzen an den Finanzmärkten, hohe Zinsen und platzende Immobilienblasen setzen den Ökonomien schwer zu. Nachdem die Inflation im vergangenen Monat leicht gefallen war, hatten einige schon auf die Entspannung gehofft, die seit Monaten gepredigt wird. Doch die neuen Schätzungen gehen davon aus, dass die Inflation in der Eurozone erneut einen Höchststand von mindestens 3,6% erreicht. Dabei sind die Nahrungsmittelpreise nach den EU-Statistikern in der EU sogar um 7,1 % gestiegen, wobei sich Bulgarien oder die Baltischen Staaten der Marke von 30 % nähern. Die Organisation für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (OECD) hat die Wachstumsprognosen für die USA, Japan und die Eurozone weiter gesenkt und spricht von einem "triple shock". Der Abschwung falle 2009 auch in Deutschland noch deutlicher aus, das in diesem Jahr noch weitgehend verschont bleibe. Besonders hart trifft es Länder, in denen, wie in den USA, Immobilienblasen platzen: Großbritannien, Spanien und Irland. Nachdem die EZB eine baldige Zinserhöhung in Aussicht gestellt hat, stieg der Euribor auf einen historischen Höchststand. Die Börsen stürzten ab, weil aus den USA ein starker Anstieg der Arbeitslosigkeit gemeldet wird.



Partybesetzung gegen Heidelberger Zustände

Germany, 17.06.2008 19:39

Heidelberg. In der Nacht von den 7. auf 8. Juni besetzten Freiraumaktivistinnen ein verlassenes Schwesternwohnheim und feiertenausgelassen für mehr Freiräume. Dabei befestigten sie ein über neun Meter langes Transparent an dem Gebäude. Die Aktivistinnen wollten mit der Besetzungsparty ein Zeichen gegen die Heidelberger Politik setzen, welche durch "menschenfeindliche, kapitalistische Verwertungslogik" geprägt sei.
Als sich die Polizei, mit Hilfe der Feuerwehr, Zugang zum Haus verschaffen konnte traf sie keine Personen im Inneren mehr an. Diesefeierten hingegen woanders weiter.
Nach Angaben der Besetzerinnen nahmen etwa 150 Menschen an der Aktionteil. Die Polizei spricht von 100.

Die Aktion reiht sich in die jahrelangen Bestrebungen der Besetzerinnen ein sich ein neues Autonomes Zentrum in Heidelberg zu erstreiten. Das letzte wurde 1999 geräumt, ohne dass es einen angemessenen Ersatz gab.

Riot at Campsfield Detention Centre

United Kingdom, 17.06.2008 12:08

Reports are emerging of what appears to have been a riot at Campsfield House, an immigration detention centre in Oxfordshire. Details at this point are sketchy, but it appears that small fires were started and that detainees were returned to their cells by prison officers in riot gear. According to corporate media accounts, there was a heavy police presence with some 50 officers in attendance and a helicopter overhead. A cordon was set up and dog handlers patrolled the perimeter.

This is the latest in a series of "disturbances" at the facility. In August last year, 26 immigrants managed to escape. Prior to that in March, an Algerian man attempted to forcefully resist efforts by immigration authorities to remove him. When fellow detainees attempted to help him a riot ensued in which 2 detainees and 7 staff staff were hospitalised.

Repression against anti-fur activists in Austria

United Kingdom, 17.06.2008 12:08

Ten animal rights campaigners have been held since the 21th May after police raided twenty-three homes and offices in Austria charging individuals with 31 different offences related to the campaign against the the fur-promoting fashion company Kleider Bauer, but most significantly of forming a criminal organisation under Section 278a of Austrian law. One of the prisoners, Martin Balluch has been on hunger strike since the arrests against the violation of his human rights and the state attacks on legitimate campaigning organisations. He is now becoming very weak and was recently moved to a prison hospital after suffering from dizzyness, blurred vision, and stomach pains. Dr Balluch, Chairman of the Association against Animal Factories (VGT) in Austria has asked for "...everyone who cares about animal protection and human rights to take action now to prevent this crime. This kind of police arbitrariness against NPOs is something we might recognize in dictatorships, but not in a democracy. Please stand up strong; stand against this outrageous injustice. My life depends on it." Chair of the Austrian Vegan Society, Felix Hnat and other members have even been remanded, although no charges have been made against any members of the board.

United Kingdom, 17.06.2008 11:08

Tara Aryan is an Iranian refugee to the UK who converted to Christianity last year. The home office is trying to deport her to Iran. If they are sucessful she could face imprisonment or death for 'abandoning Islam'.

Tara has lived in Brighton for two years before being detained at Yarl's Wood Removal Centre. She was scheduled to be deported on Friday 13th June on a BMI flight from Heathrow. She was transferred to the airport but the removal was deferred after a judicial review was lodged by her solicitor. Tara is now detained again at Yarl's Wood.
