Militarization in Mexico

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.06.2008 06:08

Under the guise of the "War on Drugs" the Mexican Army has increased its presence around the Zapatistas autonomous municipalities in La Garrucha - the last place Subcomandante Marcos was seen. On June 4, a convoy of 200 army, state and local police tried to enter La Garrucha under the pretext of "looking for marijuana plants," but were turned away by Zapatista men, women and children armed only with machetes and stones.

While the violence surrounding drug cartels in Mexico causes great alarm in Mexico and abroad, the targeting of Zapatista communities in the "War on Drugs" is equally alarming.

2008 Worst of SF Awards

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.06.2008 17:09

On Saturday, June 21st at 8pm at Castro and Market Streets, there will be a mock, outdoor public awards ceremony to "honor" greedy landlord speculators that several local organizations are holding most responsible for the gentrification and destruction of San Francisco's communities. This event has been planned with a spirit of community, a sense of fun, and the opportunity to deliver a spectacular, free public show. Organizers encourage "campy" themes and attitudes: (i.e.) drag outfits, colorful costumes, fierce attitudes, and outrageous behavior.



Строительство теннисных кортов в ботаническом саду: только внесите потом изменения в генплан

Belarus, 21.06.2008 16:07

На ряду со строительством паркинга на Немиге, планами по сносом бывшего здания Национальной библиотеки и Музея Великой Отечественной войны Администрация Президента решила наложить лапу ещё и на Ботанический сад. Как подтвердил один из заместителей директора ботанического сада, решение о строительстве теннисных кортов в Центральном ботаническом саду НАН Беларуси уже принято и Минприроды его согласовало.

В прошлую пятницу дирекция поставила сотрудников перед фактом принятия положительного решения: будем строить и точка. Большинство сотрудников сада категорически против, ведь строительство подобных сооружений идет в прямое противоречие с функциями сада. «Это будет уже совсем не ботанический сад, а неизвестно что, – с горечью сказал заместитель директора, – решение принято, и мы никак не можем повлиять. Вы общественность, если можете, защитите нас, выступите против решения…» Надежда на М…



Гамарника 20: строительные документы и версия застройщика

Belarus, 21.06.2008 16:07

В ответ на очередную публикацию БелаПАН по теме (http://news.tut.by/111152.html)

Застройщик Карпович наконец высказал свою позицию: (http://news.tut.by/society/111297.html)

"жалобы и утверждения жильцов голословны и основываются только на личных оценках некоторых жильцов, якобы изучивших проектную документацию (а точнее, эскизные решения), предоставленную застройщиком на собрании жильцов".

Ради такого случая стоит не пожалеть трафика и обнародовать то, о чем идет речь.

Прилагаемые сканы официальных документов -- получены из открытых источников. Часть из них была приложена к официальным отпискам исполкомов различным жильцам. Часть -- фрагменты проектной документации, предъявлялись застройщиком жильцам на встрече 29 мая, и впоследствии были подобраны различными жильцами дома.

Присутствующие на полях пометки сделаны специалистами, которые в неофициальном порядке согласились изучить эти документы.



Помогите спасти животных

Belarus, 21.06.2008 16:07

Более ста животных должны усыпить!

23 и 24 июня на предприятии "Фауна города" проведут дезинфекцию. В ходе этого мероприятия планируют усыпить всех питомцев приемника. А это 57 собак и 47 кошек.

Работники предприятия подготовили специальную площадку, где могут содержаться лишь 15 собак. Остальных животных могут спасти только горожане. Во время прошлой дезинфекции благодаря участию минчан ни одна кошка не была усыплена.

Если вы готовы откликнуться на этот призыв о помощи, приходите на базу предприятия "Фауна города". За символическую плату вы сможете выбрать себе собаку, а кошку можно забрать бесплатно. С вопросами и предложениями обращайтесь к заместителю директора КУП "Фауна города" Наталье Беляновой по телефонам 8-029-630-79-33 либо 266-99-33.

Пожалуйста, продублируйте этот текст на своей странице, в жж, сообществах. Помогите распространить информацию в сети и среди знакомых. Спасибо за вашу помощь!

Harlem Fightback Continues

NYC, 21.06.2008 13:09

Whether it be in Occupied Territories in Palestine, New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, or right here in New York City, the world is witnessing a new wave of corporate seizure and destruction of already scare affordable housing. This is just one part of Mayor Bloomberg's plan to transform New York, albeit the most ambitious. Under the current plan, 70 local businesses and hundreds of minority local residents will be displaced to make way for multi-billion dollar corporations to set up shop and continue to exploit our communities.

60 Years of the Nakba

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.06.2008 09:09

May 2008 marked 60 years of the Nakba, the catastrophe. Sixty years ago, 700,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes and 350 Palestinian villages were destroyed by the Israeli army and militias. In the Bay Area, the Nakba was commemorated by numerous events and demonstrations. On May 10th at the Civic Center, a peace and solidarity festival took place with bands such as the Coup and Dam. Jewish groups also organized solidarity actions. The International Jewish Solidarity Network has circulated a statement calling on people not to celebrate, and Jewish Voice for Peace called on Americans to remember the thousands of Palestinians who have suffered in the creation of Israel. The IJSN disrupted an event at San Francisco's JCC called "Israel at Sixty."



On the Greenspace vandalism

Santa Cruz, CA, 21.06.2008 08:08

anarchist writes, "To everyone who read that Greenspace lost a window to "anarchists" and cringed:
This incident is not representative of the greater revolutionary struggle or anarchists in general. One person claiming their inconsequential vandalism with a communique, especially does not represent the tactfulness and potency that most anarchists act with - both in our contribution to existing social conflicts, and even more so, in our autonomous actions."



Donald J. Vodicka's High Price For Integrity

When a prison riot between inmates and guards broke out in a maximum security facility, Salinas Valley State prison in California on Thanksgiving Day in 1998, corrections officer Donald J.Vodicka's life would be changed forever. In an attempt to document evidence of injured inmates, Vodicka was behind the camera that day. What was normal standard procedure would be shunned on by a group of guards, and Vodicka was told by other guards to get rid of the photos and evidence of injured inmates. To cover-up evidence.



Summer Solstice - Energy Circle for Tre Arrow

Portland, 21.06.2008 05:37

WHAT: Summer Solstice-Energy Circle for Tre

WHEN: June 20th, Friday @ 5:30PM

WHERE: Top of Mt.Tabor

WHY: This has been a really long road for Tre and he could really use our love, light, and healing energy. Tre is aware this is happening and he will be receiving the energy at 5:45pm. If you cannot make it to Mt. Tabor, please still send him positive energy at 5:45pm wherever you are.

Summer officially begins wuth the Summer Solstice on Friday, June 20 at 4:59pm. Sol + stice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning "sun" + "to stand still." As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky.

As a major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year. The Northern Hemisphere celebrates in June, but the people on the Southern half of the earth have their longest summer day in December.

The Summer Solstice represent a new beginning. It is time for purification, and renewal of the self. A time to release the sadness, fears, and pains from your life. It is time to celebrate the joy, warmth, and laughter of summer. A time for purification and renewed energy. A time to celebrate the fullness of life and the power of the sun. A time to heal mother earth, heal yourself, and heal Tre.

*NAMASTE*

Back to basics

Portland, 21.06.2008 05:37

Given the state of the world (fuel, transportation, weather, crop loss etc) the single most important act no matter your situation (assuming you aren't in prison or on the tenth floor of a high-rise condo unit) is to grow some food. Basic sustenance is the great equalizer.

This culture [sic] is responsible for a hell of a lot of suffering both domestically and internationally. We are now looking at a global train wreck with famine, disease, resource wars etc. I realize this is not a new situation for many millions around the world but it is going to escalate.



War, Inc. Reviewing the reviewers.

Portland, 21.06.2008 05:37

Corporate media is not going to handle John and Joan Cusack's
film, War, Inc., very well for a few reasons.

1) Don't know how to review satire
2) What to make of a movie that makes fun of THEM
3) Pressure from corporate structure above for reviewers to pan such a movie.
4) Easier to attack something topical than support it.



AMA defends trans persons

Portland, 21.06.2008 05:37

It has been fashionable in the past decades to pretend that normal human sexual and gender variations are instead some sort of voluntary or arbitrary perversion. There have been many studies—talking about science here—that show that human and animal populations have always harbored lesbian, gay and trans behaviors, because group survival requires that sex, identity and pleasure serve more functions than merely reproduction. One consequence of ignoring that science has been a severe degrading of the Army's ability to translate Arabic since the famous firing of so many translators under the Don't Ask Don't Tell era of military aggression against gays. The society is of course generally degraded when one minority or another is oppressed for no reason.



Briana Waters Sentenced

Portland, 21.06.2008 05:37

Briana Waters was sentenced to six years in prison and three years probation. She did receive the terrorism enhancement. The judge recommended her to Dublin. Judge denied appeal bond and also the ability to self surrender.

Judge Burgess commented on the over 250 letters he received on Briana's behalf. Neil Fox, Ms. Waters' attorney, argued that the average of both Washington and Oregon cases was one and a half years per arson. Mr. Fox argued for five years with serving one and half suspending three and a half. The prosecution argued for ten years.

Briana Waters spoke eloquently today on her behalf. There were a dozen supporters for Briana Waters in the court room.



Call out for June 21st

Portland, 21.06.2008 05:37

Acting in solidarity with the call out for a decentralized day of action on June 21st, an ad hoc group of Portland residents intends to establish a temporary autonomous zone in downtown Portland. The space created by our action intends to

-Challenge the Sit/Lie Ordinance through community power
-Create a conversation surrounding the criminalization of poverty
-Demonstrate that commodified and (para)militarized urban areas can be re-imagined through creative transformations.
-Uphold the demands of the United Poor People (UPP).  http://homelessliberation.wordpress.com/
-Recognize that listening and cooperation requires attention to systematic modes of oppression and privilege related to race, class, gender, and sexual orientation.

Aerial Pesticide Spraying for LBAM Over Cities Stopped

Santa Cruz, CA, 20.06.2008 21:10

On June 19th, the California Department of Food and Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that aerial pheromone application will no longer take place over urban areas and will be "limited to agricultural land and undeveloped regions as a tool of last result" to control the Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM). "The bottom line for eradicating this pest has always been safety," said Sam Farr, representative of the 17th Congressional District of California. "The public was never convinced that spraying was safe or the only option, and the result has been protests, anger and a series of lawsuits.

Carriers indefinite strike since June 6th

The lorries had called for a strike not only for the risings in diesel oil price, but also against the contracting and the structure of service buying and selling that logistic companies use to speculate; that just before the strike these companies held a meeting at the e al Saló Internacional de la Logística, from June 3th to 6th at Fira de barcelona. Autonomous lorries and small businessmen are the most affected and the less represented by trade unions; in the CETM as well as in filopatronal and also in Fenadismer, who supports the strike but negotiates with the government.

PRO IP Act and ACTA Interview with John Anderson

Santa Cruz, CA, 20.06.2008 01:40

Skidmark Bob of Free Radio Santa Cruz interviewed media analyst John Anderson about the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) to be discussed at the G8 summit in Japan and H.R. 4279, the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property (PRO IP) Act of 2007. Although ACTA's title might suggest that the agreement deals only with counterfeit physical goods (such as medicines), what little information has been made available publicly by negotiating governments about the content of the treaty makes it clear that it will have a far broader scope, and in particular, will deal with tools targeting "Internet distribution and information technology." The PRO IP Act proposes to make substantial changes to federal copyright law, including the appointment of a copyright Czar.



Manifestación contra la macrocárcel de Maspalomas

Canarias, 20.06.2008 00:13

Además del vertedero insular, al que se le amplía agónicamente la licencia y la capacidad ([1], [2]), una machacadora de piedra(que se ha comido un par de riscos en los años que lleva operativa) y una central térmica (de ciclo combinado: preparada para el gas natural licuado que nos lleve hasta el protocolo de Kyoto), en la comarca de Juan Grande - Castillo del Romeral han pretendido situar una incineradora a la que los vecinos plantaron cara.

Actualmente siguen en pie de guerra, y más que nunca, pues ahora les quieren echar encima la macrocárcel que todos los municipios de la isla llevan años sorteándose, además de la regasificadora que alimente a la central térmica.

El proyecto de construcción de la macro-cárcel en los Llanos de Juan Grande está repleto de irregularidades. Los políticos, a favor o en contra según sople el viento ([1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7]). Corren rumores de que la macrocárcel tiene mucho que ver con el AFRICOM ([1], [2]), y con la recién aprobada directiva de la vergüenza.

Wedding Bells are Ringing in California

United States, 19.06.2008 18:07

CALIFORNIA, June 18, 2008 – Hundreds of marriages of same sex couples took place yesterday as the state of California officially ended marriage discrimination based on gender. In San Francisco crowds cheered as newlywed couples exited the steps of City Hall. Couples in Oakland were married by elected officials including the Mayor of Oakland, Ron Dellums, Oakland City Councilperson, Jean Quan and Congresswoman Barbara Lee. In Fresno over 100 gay and lesbian couples waited in line outside the county court house to either marry or to get their marriage license. And from Southern California there is video of marriage ceremonies in Santa Ana

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, more weddings are expected this Summer. In West Hollywood civil ceremonies will be conducted in a day long marathon in the park on Saturday. Although legally married now the future legal status of these marriages may be threatened. There is concern about a proposition on the ballot this November that would ban gay marriage. But for today people are celebrating and wedding bells are ringing throughout the state.
