The Indypendent Issue 122: Selling Off New York: Three Tales of a City for Sale

NYC, 27.06.2008 19:40

“Cranes fall. Billion-dollar corporate giveaways are negotiated behind closed doors. Greedy politicians and executives seek to dismember a not-for-profit healthcare company utilized by millions of people. Each of these stories and a hundred others like them are presented randomly by the media. Yet, a single-minded logic flows through them all. As our city is auctioned off to the investor class, is there room for any other concern besides maximizing profit?”

The Indypendent has a three-part article series on the “Carving Up Of New York,” with analysis on news on the pending GHI-HIP merger, a “sweetheart deal” for Verizon from NYC, and the building boom that has led to construction accidents.

Also, Nicholas Powers writes on Senator Barack Obama, William Bell, and Father’s Day. In International News, the battle over Mexico and the privatization of oil is heating up, and G.I. resisters in Canada find themselves in legal limbo. And as the June Gay Pride activities near, what radical queer books are worth reading? Kenyon Farrow reviews a handful of radical queer books. See below for much, much more!

Reponse to &quot;Queer Liberation and Anarchist Communism&quot;

Boston, 27.06.2008 19:09

Parts of this article I would agree with or appreciate as a queer and trans person, though other parts are simply offensive. I am glad NEFAC can show solidarity for queer liberation struggles (read as struggles based in sexuality, gender identity or representation). I feel social justice struggles are inevitably connected and working towards an analysis which embraces this is beneficial, nurturing and necessary for any revolutionary movement to occur.

Clear Channel says NO! to the Iraqi Children's Campaign

Portland, 27.06.2008 17:39

The Iraqi Children's campaign efforts to put up a prominent billboard in the Portland Metro area ran into a roadblock last week when Clear Channel refused to allow the billboard. The proposed billboard is on our website and features a frightened Iraqi child with the words, "Every child matters!"

This billboard is tasteful and simply shows a frightened iraqi child and conveys the message that every child matters regardless of their nation of origin. But Clear channel has decided that the people of Portland don't need to be reminded of the pain and suffering of children in their name. They claim that the design is "not right for the market at this time" which is of course utterly absurd.

Arrests As International Whaling Commission Fails To Protect Whales

United Kingdom, 27.06.2008 13:08

Fifteen people were arrested by police at a meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC), held this year in Santiago, Chile. The protesters were supposedly trying to 'storm' the meeting but other reports state that the mere presence of people in front of the meeting's venue was seen as a 'security threat'.

The IWC meets annually to regulate the whaling industry and make decisions on conservation of whale populations. So far the meeting hasn't reached any agreements and the commission continues to be strongly devided between the pro- and anti-whaling nations. Skye Bortoli, an activist from Teens Against Whaling described the meeting this year as 'pathetic', saying "this body will be known in the future as a small group of ecologically arrogant people who are condemning the world’s whales to agony and oblivion for petty politics and a few lousy bucks."

Death of the 4th

Portland, 27.06.2008 06:09

Come join us at the Earl's Den to say goodbye to the 4th Amendment. There will be two ceremonies---- one at high noon at Rep. Blumenauer's office and the second about 2:15-2:30 at the fed building. Many of us will join members from Veterans for Peace and Code Pink at the fed building.

Congress, as a whole, has abandoned us for whatever reason---fear, power, money, or just plain stupidity, I don't care what the reason is, they all have to go. That will be my rallying cry from now until November. When people see that a politician has the word incumbent after his/her name they will get sick at the thought of voting for them.

The action starts at:

729 SE Oregon St. (Earl's Den)
@ high noon
2:15-2:30 we will be at the fed building to show that we loved the 4th Amendment and want to pay our respects.

4th Amendment:
- Protection from unreasonable search and seizure.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

28th of june, 2008: heteropatriarchy under question

" front of the proposed false "equality" and rethorical "rights" we should activate the extraordinary subvertive potential of our bodies and desires. We should be conscious about the fact that patriarchy and capitalism suffocates us and that only fight will make us sexually free. But this is not an exclusive task of lesbian, gay and trans activism, but of everybody. We all suffer our sexualities repression. Do not give more opportunities to machism, sexist violence, homofobia and transfobia...

28 de juny del 2008: l'heteropatriarcat en qüestió

"...davant la falsa ‘igualtat’ i la retòrica dels ‘drets’ que se’ns proposa, cal que activem el potencial de subversió extraordinària dels nostres cossos i dels nostres desitjos. Cal que prenguem consciència que el patriarcat i el capitalisme ens ofeguen i només la lluita ens farà sexualment lliures. Però aquesta no és una tasca exclusiva de l’activisme gai, lèsbic i trans sinó de totes les persones. Totes patim la repressió vers les nostres sexualitats . No donguem més oportunitats al masclisme, a la violència sexista,a l’homofòbia i a la transfòbia..."

UN Urges US to Change Policies on Military Recruiting

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.06.2008 14:39

On June 6, responding to an ACLU report on recruiter abuses, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child issued a report urging the U.S. to make sweeping policy changes regarding domestic military recruitment practices. Although the U.S. signed the UN's Optional Protocol on the involvement of Children in Armed Conflict in 2002, military recruiters still target children under 18 years of age for enlistment with techniques that include false promises and coercion.

Nader Rallies NYC Supporters, Suggests Obama Will Be 'Greatest Disappointment'

NYC, 26.06.2008 13:09

About 100 diehard Naderites welcomed their hero on June 18, when he came to New York’s Upper West Side to tout his third-party campaign for the White House. Ralph Nader and his running mate Matt Gonzales will be on the Independent Party ticket. For the man on the top of the ticket, his vision for the future is simple; he wants “to wage peace, not war.” Nader is against anything becoming “corporatized,” a process that has reached its peak under President Bush. Nader also had strong words for the Democrats presumptive nominee, saying he wished the Senator well, but thought “Obama will be the greatest disappointment.”

Japan: No G8 beginnt unerwartet

Switzerland, 26.06.2008 09:07

Eine spontane Demonstration von ArbeiterInnen in Nishinari entwickelt sich zu einer – für „japanische Verhältnisse“ - unerwartet entschlossenen Auseinandersetzung. Damit beginnt auch aus Sicht der GipfelstümerInnen der Protest gegen die G8 unerwartet: mit solche einer kämpferischen Stimmung zum Beginn der G8-Tage hat niemand gerechnet. Die Ironie der Geschichte ist, dass nicht eine Koordination zwischen den NoG8-AktivistInnen und den ArbeiterInnen von Nishinari, sondern das Auftreten der RiotPolizei in G8-Stimmung den Zusammenhang hergestellt hat.

Students Oppose Oppression of Homeless

Rogue Valley, 26.06.2008 04:10

EUGENE, OR – The Lane County Coalition Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) are hosting a rally and a march on Sunday, June 29th from the EMU on the University of Oregon Campus. They intend to draw awareness to the impact of the Olympics on the poor and homeless communities locally and globally.

Southern Oregonian relates to the Eugene story:

Ashland Homeless Sweep
Jackson County Sheriff Dept., Ashland police and fire just raided homeless camps above Lithia Park yesterday morning. On federal land they do not even need to warn people to remove their tents and sleeping bags and can just confiscate and destroy them. Heaven forbid we should allow people to sleep outside legally within Ashland city limits. The sky might fall or something...

Adalah-NY: ADL demand that UNICEF reinstate Leviev as donor outrageous

NYC, 26.06.2008 04:09

The New York rights coalition Adalah-NY today labeled as “hypocritical and outrageous” the June 24 demand by The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) that UNICEF reinstate Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev as a donor. In a June 24 press release, ADL Director Abe Foxman criticized UNICEF’s decision to sever ties with Leviev, saying that it "smacks of selective political discrimination.” UNICEF announced last week that it would no longer accept donations from Lev Leviev due to his involvement in the construction of Israeli settlements in violation of international law. UNICEF’s decision came after they received letters criticizing Leviev’s activities from groups including Adalah-NY, Jews Against the Occupation, Jewish Voice for Peace, and a visit by UNICEF officials to Jayyous, one of the West Bank Palestinian communities where a Leviev company is building Israeli settlements.

Replying to the Anti-Defamation League's recent attack on UNICEF for the decision, JATO/NYC called on the ADL to follow UNICEF and OXfam's lead and cut its ties to Leviev.
