I-69 Resistance and Repression Round-up

Portland, 25.06.2008 14:40

Indiana June 24- Resistance to I-69 has been rapidly heating up in the past month. While the first protest camp set up was quietly evicted in early May, a tree-sit and occupation created in the path of a proposed onramp later that month lasted five weeks.

During that time, participants also built an elaborate ground camp, while simultaneously carrying on intensive organizing with local families threated by the road, culminating in a community picnic in Oakland City attended jointly by landowners and eco-activists. Exciting demonstrations and solidarity actions happened throughout the month - in Bloomington, Louisville, Maryland, and beyond.

El gobierno español impide al &quot;Mandela norteafricano&quot; participar en un acto sobre el Sáhara en Las Palmas

Canarias, 25.06.2008 00:10

El activista saharaui de Derechos Humanos estuvo preso en cárceles marroquíes durante 25 años y fue condenado a muerte, según el Servicio de Comunicación Saharaui en Canarias; actualmente es el presidente del Comité Saharaui de Apoyo al Derecho de Autodeterminación (CSSASO).

El cónsul general de España en Agadir (Marruecos), José María Rodríguez Coso, ha rechazado la solicitud de visado del antiguo preso político, presidente del Comité Saharaui de Apoyo al Derecho de Autodeterminación (CSSASO) y Premio RAFTO de Derechos Humanos en 2002, Sidi Mohamed Daddach, para viajar a Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, según informó el vicepresidente de CSSASO y activista saharaui de Derechos Humanos H´mad Hammad al Servicio de Comunicación Saharaui en Canarias (SCSC). Daddach, de 51 años, conocido como el “Mandela norteafricano” al ser el preso político que más tiempo ha permanecido en las cárceles marroquíes de forma ininterrumpida, más de 25 años, tenía prevista su participación en la Conferencia Internacional de Juristas por el Sahara que se celebrará en las Palmas de Gran Canaria los próximos 27 y 28 de junio.

El martes pasado, Daddach fue “golpeado, insultado y agredido” en la capital del Sahara por las fuerzas de seguridad marroquíes, continúa el SCSC a través de un comunicado, después de haber acudido a dar la bienvenida al también preso político saharaui y activista de Derechos Humanos Brahim Sabbar, liberado ese mismo día después de dos años de prisión.

Carmel Agrexco's Depot Shut Down in Commemoration of the Nakba

United Kingdom, 24.06.2008 21:39

In the early hours of Saturday morning, activists occupied and shut-down the HQ and only UK freight warehouse of Carmel Agrexco - Israel's largest agricultural exporter from the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The occupation held for over 6 hours until they were forcibly removed at 12 noon.

During the occupation over 10 loading trucks intended for the warehouse were sent away. British supermarkets - accounting for 60% of Carmel-Agrexco's total exports - had some of their orders affected. The Israeli government has a 50% stake in the company. Exports include flowers, avocados and herbs grown in illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land.

Appeal Update In the case of the New Jersey 4

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.06.2008 15:09

On August 18 2006, while seven African American lesbians women were walking down the street in the West Village, a male bystander assaulted them with sexist and homophobic comments. The women tried to defend themselves, and a fight broke out. Three of the women accepted plea offers and the other four received sentences of up to 11 years in prison.

On Monday, June 23, 2008, Terrain Dandridge's case was overturned, all her charges were dropped and her record was cleared. Terrain Dandridge and her mother are due to arrive to the Bay Area to meet with Angela Davis at the San Francisco Women's Building. This public event is scheduled for Tuesday, June 24th, 7-9 pm, during PRIDE week in order to unravel the experiences of violence that Queer people of color face.



Anatomy of a Successful Antiwar Movement

Boston, 24.06.2008 14:09

This summer there will be a National Assembly to End the Iraq War and Occupation in Cleveland, Ohio (http://natassembly.org). One of the main goals of the assembly will be to lay the groundwork for mass action against the war. At first glance, 2008 seems like an unlikely year to jump start a sluggish antiwar movement. With the elections this fall, the political pressure to line up behind the Democratic Party’s slate of candidates is already peeling away our fair weather friends from those of us who are serious about building an independent antiwar movement.

La prison pour étrangers de Vincennes incendiée et détruite par les détenus

Liege, 23.06.2008 13:08

On se souvient qu'en décembre les détenus de plusieurs "centres de rétention administrative" (CRA), où sont enfermés les hommes et femmes sans-papiers que l'Etat français s'apprête à expulser, s'étaient révoltés pour dénoncer leurs conditions de détention et la politique criminelle de la France en matière d'immigration. Depuis les tensions, révoltes, actes de désespoir des détenus et interventions de la police sont réguliers et de plus en plus graves dans ces zones de non-droit. En février, des policiers intervenaient à Vincennes et faisaient usage de leurs Taser (les Tasers sont des "pistolets électriques", armes dites "non-létales" ayant pourtant déjà tué de nombreuses personnes, il y a quelques jours, la société Taser a été condamnée par la justice américaine à payer de lourds dommages à la famille d'une victime de cette arme).



I-Witness Video's '04 RNC Protest Footage Subpoenaed by NYC Government

DC, 23.06.2008 12:10

I-Witness Video, which documented the police at the 2004 Republican National Convention along with the National Lawyers Guild, has received two subpoenas from the City of New York in connection with civil lawsuits related to the RNC arrests. The subpoenas are so broad that we believe the City's true motivation is not defending themselves from lawsuits about false arrests, but rather intelligence-gathering. We have moved to quash the subpoenas and are fighting their demand to turn over the names of individual videographers.



Palestinians Use Video Cameras To Document Attacks By Settlers

San Francisco Bay Area, 23.06.2008 04:34

Video cameras have become a crucial way for Palestinians to document the daily harassment inflicted on them by Israeli settlers. In one recent example, a Palestinian family living on the southern hills of Al-Halil, was attacked by four settlers armed with baseball bats while farming their land. The video provided evidence against two settlers, who were arrested by the Israeli police.



Philadelphia Activists Still Homeless After Arrests and Seizure of Home

United States, 23.06.2008 03:09

On June 13, 2008, police entered a home in North Philadelphia without warrant and arrested its four residents, whose recent community activities included petitioning against police brutality and new police surveillance cameras in their community. One of the arrestees, Jen Rock recounts that police "said they were responding to a complaint about 'trespassing in an abandoned building'. We have lived in our home for almost 4 years." Read Report

Local writer Jeff Rousset summarizes the weeks events and argues that these recent incidents further reveal "the consistent dedication of the Philadelphia Police Department to squash dissent by any means necessary." Read Report

Joe Anybody Interviews Police Taser Victim - Assault Victim from The City of Roses

Portland, 22.06.2008 18:39

I interviewed Clifton in the neighborhood near where he was assaulted on Saturday 6-12-08. He told me on camera how he was assaulted by two assholes coming out of a bar on SE 48 and Belmont street here in Portland Oregon around 7pm at night. This happened as he was waiting for a bus to go to work on an evening shift...the job he lost due to be taken to jail and missing work.

Hear Mr Brooks tell "his version" of how he lost his job due to being on city street in Portland waiting for his bus to go to work and then being jumped by two drunks ... and if thats not enough having the portland police come long and shock the shit out of him and take him off to jail?

Force-Fed Ducks, Ten-01 Sucks: Foie Gras Protest Report

Portland, 22.06.2008 18:39

On Friday night, June 20, a group of about a dozen protesters headed to the restaurant Ten-01, at 1001 NW Couch. The owner of this restaurant (who ironically also owns the veg restaurant Nutshell) had previously told protesters in person that he would take foie gras off the menu and never serve it again - at which point an earlier protest was cancelled, and protesters with signs in hand walked away from the establishment. However, he has once again put it on the menu.

To produce foie gras (fatty liver) ducks and geese are force-fed two to three times per day using metal pipes shoved down their throats. Their throats and esophagus' are scratched and wounded with the insertion and removal of the pipes, sometimes causing mortal infections... Some animals are too sick to even stand. The production of foie gras is banned in many places, including the UK, Italy, Norway, Switzerland, Israel, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Argentina, on grounds of animal cruelty. For more information and video, see http://www.goveg.com/feat/foie/

Managers and employees at Ten-01 taunted us, saying they would never take foie gras off the menu, and that we were only letting potential customers know that foie gras was served there, thus helping their business. However, we saw a number of parties turn away and go elsewhere, once they were shown that foie gras is served at Ten-01. The valet told us that business was slower than usual... At one point an Elmer Fudd looking dude who identified himself as "block security" and was wearing an "official t-shirt" told us that we had to move on.... Fortunately, what remains of the First Amendment dictates that it is legal to peacefully protest. Message to Ten-01: you do not in fact own the public sidewalk.
