No Salute to Israel, 60 Years of Apartheid is Nothing to Celebrate

United Kingdom, 01.07.2008 15:38

Today, a series of non-violent protest actions disrupted the 'Salute to Israel' parade. The parade celebrated 60 years since the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. Activists wished to remind the public that since its inception, Israel has been maintained through the constant oppression of the Palestinian people, in particular through ethnic cleansing.

The 'Salute to Israel' parade was a shameful show of support to a government engaged in war crimes. Sponsors included the Jewish National Fund, an organisation deeply involved in the colonisation of Palestinian land as well in anti-Palestinian discrimination within Israel. Activists wish to stress that the British government's authorisation, protection and support of this event is entirely unacceptable.

En route, the parade was greeted by activists with red dye on their hands to symbolise the blood of Palestinians killed by the Israeli government. In Tafalgar Square, both fountains turned red and a Palestinian flag was unfurled at the entrance of the National Gallery. An activist climbed up a big screen which had to be turned off for most of the event. Also, another group attempted to get onto the roof of the National Gallery in order to unfurl a banner but were arrested in the process.

Arrests and detentions of activists and independent journalists in Japan

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.07.2008 07:39

In the lead up to the G8 Summit in Japan from July 7th through 9th, Japanese authorities have arrested domestic activists and have detained numerous foreign independent media journalists and anti-G8 protesters. At least six independent journalists and ten academics have been detained by Japanese immigration officials in the past weeks, including Andrej Grubacic, professor of sociology at the University of San Francisco.

Police arrested eight protesters on June 28, as 1,000 people marched against the G8 Summit the Tokyo's fashionable Kabuki-cho district. Earlier this month, workers in Kamagasaki clashed with police and security in the face of violent repression and brutality against at least one worker.

Japan's security budget for the G8 Summit is at least 30 billion yen ($283 million), topping the 113 million euros ($186 million) Germany spent as host the summit of the world's most powerful "democratic" nations.

Rochester's Anti-Racist Movement Visits WHAM

United States, 01.07.2008 03:07

The Rochester Anti-Racist Movement (ARM) went to the offices of WHAM radio today to talk with the station management about Bob Lonsberry's recent racist, sexist and classist remarks. After the meeting ARM gave a press conference, calling for him to be removed from the air. Below is a summary of ARM's position:

The recent (June 10, 2008) comments made by Bob Lonsberry on WHAM 1180 were an unacceptable continuation of Mr. Lonsberry’s history of on- air racism, sexism and classism. For far too long Mr. Lonsberry has been permitted to cross the boundaries of decent discourse. It is apparent that he feels entirely comfortable, to say nothing of completely justified, in making hateful, hurtful, and erroneous statements about people of color, women, and people who are poor. His expressed views both tap and reinforce an undercurrent of hostility, which serves to perpetuate the social divisions of our community and calls to question our community’s resolve to eradicate those divisions.

Therefore, it is with a high degree of resolve that ARM calls for the removal of Bob Lonsberry from the public airwaves. The offensive content of Mr. Lonsberry’s remarks will not be allowed to hang, unchallenged, in our communal air. No individual should have the sense of entitlement that permits them to continually pollute that communal air.

Der Häuserkampf in Basel geht weiter

Switzerland, 30.06.2008 21:07

Die seit 6 jahren leerstehende Aktienmühle an der Gärtnerstrasse in Basel wurde am 29.06. besetzt. Etwa eine Stunde nach der erfolgreichen Besetzung waren schon die ersten Kastenwagen im Anmarsch. Die Besetzer_innen verbarrikadierten den Eingang und schmückten das Eingangstor mit dem Transparent "seid sand im getriebe". Als die Polizei zwanzig Minuten später mit grossem Aufgebot antanzte, wurden sie von den Besetzer_innen mit einem weiteren Transparent begrüsst. Viele Schaulustige säumten die Strasse. Als sich eine Gruppe von Sympatisant_innen mit Wasser und Lebensmitteln näherte, eskalierte die Lage. Die Polizei griff agressiv durch und setze Hunde, Schlagstöcke und Pfefferspray ein. Mehrere Menschen wurden verletzt und festgenommen. Im Verlaufe des Montags (30.6.) wurde das Haus von der Polizei gemäss Berichten geräumt.

Gleichzeitig scheint die Villa Rosenau nun definitv nicht geräumt zu werden. In einem Brief an die Villa Rosenau schrieb Regierungsrätin Schneider, dass die Villa vorläufig bleiben kann und dass für die Nutzung des Areals höchstens einen symbolischen Betrag zahlen müssen. Eine Demonstration wurde darauf abgesagt; das Camp bei der Villa Rosenau findet allerdings statt. "Weiterhin sind jedoch viele Freiräume bedroht und neue Häuser zu besetzen ist mit zunehmender Repression immer schwieriger. Deshalb bleibt unser Anliegen nach Freiraum bestehen. Wir solidarisieren uns mit La Biu in Biel und der Hegistrasse in Winterthur. Des weiteren solidarisieren wir uns mit den Freiraumkämpfen in Barcelona, Berlin und Kopenhagen.

Rising Moon Organics: Delicious Food, Waste Free

Portland, 30.06.2008 17:11

Rising Moon Organics (RMO) has served the finest ravioli and desserts at the Oregon Country Fair (OCF) since 1992. RMO was formerly one of many food booths producing mountains of trash over the 3 day festival, but changed their approach in 1993 to pursue a trash-free mission.
As a result, RMO has saved over 100,000 plates, cups and forks from going to the landfill. RMO marked its 15th year at the Oregon Country Fair in 2006, by becoming a not-for-profit booth donating all profits to local organizations.

RMO has been instrumental in creating a sustainable fair with less trash that supports the OCF in furthering its trash-free mission. The process began in collaboration with the Fern Ridge School District to wash most durables off site. And that was just the beginning for greening the practices of feeding thousands of hungry fair goers.

Their possessions were confiscated and thrown away. The Portland Coalition Against Poverty is hosting a demonstration to demand an immediate end to police harassment of poor and houseless people. It is on Wednesday, July 9th, at 5pm, in the North Park Blocks.

28 de junio de 2008: el heteropatriarcado en cuestión

"...frente a la falsa 'igualdad' y la retórica de los 'derechos' que se nos propone, hay que activar el potencial extraorinario de subversión de nuestros cuerpos y nuestros deseos. Hay que tomar conciencia de que el patriarcado y el capitalismo nos ahogan y sólo la lucha nos hará sexualmente libres. Pero esta no es una tarea exclusiva del activismo gay, lésbico y trans sino de todas las personas. Todas sufrimos la represión hacia nuestras sexualidades. No demos más oportunidades al machismo, a la violencia sexista, a la homofobia y a la transfobia..."

Indymedia Italia torna online

Switzerland, 29.06.2008 17:37

Dopo la chiusura nel 2006, è ormai da più di un anno che i nodi italiani di Indymedia hanno ricominciato a lavorare sui territori riportando in contesti locali le pratiche e i principi che animano il lavoro del Network Internazionale di Indymedia.

I nodi italiani nati in questi anni hanno ora deciso di aprirsi ad un progetto nazionale attraverso la costruzione di un aggregatore, che oltre a rispondere al bisogno di un progetto in grado di superare le pur importanti specificità dei progetti di informazione indipendenti locali, è uno strumento in grado di offrire un'occasione di produzione, elaborazione e diffusione dei contributi legati ad un modo orizzontale di gestione della comunicazione.
Il processo di ridefinizione dei mezzi e degli scopi di Indymedia Italia si è concluso.

Die Partei, in der sich nach dem Tod Francos die Anhänger der Diktatur gesammelt haben, ist bisher die Bastion der katholischen Kirche, die auch über sich die PP das überkommene franquistische Familienmodell der heterosexuellen Zweierfamilie propagiert hat und mit ihr gegen die Homoehe, Abtreibung und Scheidungen und gegen die Rehabilitierung der Franco-Opfer zu Felde zog.



Protests in Nottingham as Zimbabwe Goes to the Polls

United Kingdom, 29.06.2008 15:08

On Friday June 27, Zimbabwe went to the polls in the second round of its presidential election. This followed a first round in March. Concerned about the scale of state-directed violence against supporters, the opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai had withdrawn on Sunday June 22, making a victory by the incumbent Robert Mugabe inevitable.

In Nottingham, the election was marked by the recently formed Nottingham Zimbabwe Community network (NZCN) who held a protest against deportations to Zimbabwe in Old Market Square and organised a public meeting at the Sumac Centre to discuss the situation in the country.

BAYAN USA, a national alliance of Filipino organizations in the US, together with several other allied groups, coordinated R.A.T.s in several cities in protest of Arroyo's visit, claiming the President will funnel any foreign aid, especially US aid, towards the proliferation of human rights violations, including militarization, counter-insurgency, politically-motivated killings, and abductions in the Philippines. Ironically, the Philippine government was recently elected a vice-presidential post in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), a major point of controversy for the families of over 1000 victims of extra-judicial killings and enforced disappearances in the Philippines.
