A picket outside the Japanese embassy took place on Friday the 4th, and for Saturday the 5th, and despite previous harassment by the Metropolitan police, a London Fete Against the G8 was called by London No Borders and other groups to demonstrate in solidarity with the protests in Japan, for the Freedom of Movement, and against Fortress Europe.

Badgers Saved In England, What About Wales?

United Kingdom, 07.07.2008 20:38

The Secretary of State for DEFRA, Hilary Benn, announced today that he has decided against a cull of badgers in England to control TB in cattle. The decision came after protest actions last month with a rally attended by over 300 supporters and the sabotaging of five offices owned by the National Farmers Union (NFU) and the Farmers Union of Wales (FUW). Mr Benn also has resounding public support for sparing badgers. A DEFRA public consultation on the issue received submissions from 47,000 respondents, ninety-five per cent of whom opposed a cull. Despite this, The Welsh Assembly has voted to allow badger culling to go ahead in Wales.

Student Activism Doesn't Make The Grade

Portland, 07.07.2008 18:39

I think it's important to seriously be able to step back and give ourselves a hard look. As an Anarchist I feel that is what I should always be doing. Lately I've seen a lot of attention focused on student activism. While this can be a great avenue to explore, I think its extremely important to be able to look at the situation in which you live and compare it with other situations. In more "Liberal" cities we do a very good job of creating a comfortable utopia of "resistance". These cities generally have a number of legitimate Anarchist projects going on and have health food stores and co-ops. The music scene is usually good and getting things for free can be easy. They can be great places to live.

Ashland July 4 Parade: Lesson in Free Speech

Rogue Valley, 06.07.2008 21:40

Both the City of Ashland and its Chamber of Commerce were earlier charged with violations of the first amendment so the stage was set for a "civic lesson" at this year's Fourth of July parade. First came the ACLU parade entry featuring "Uncle Sam leading hooded & shackled prisoners", and behind them came Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice and their "controversial political entry."

For 2008 the City of Ashland's Fourth of July parade was an eye opener for the thousands of parade goers who applauded enthusiastically as the demonstrations of "free speech" marched down the main drag in Ashland, Oregon. We hope Ashland and its Chamber of Commerce were not sleeping during class.

Campaigners Celebrate Victory On EU Seal Ban

United Kingdom, 06.07.2008 17:38

There is good news for campaigners on the proposed EU ban on the import on seal products from Canada. The EU's Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas has just announced to EU ministers that legislation for a trade ban on all seal products from Canada will come into force in a matter of weeks.

The Canadian slaughter of over 350.000 baby harp seals takes place each year around March/April off the east coast of Canada in Newfoundland.

Starbucks Announces 600 Store Closures

San Francisco Bay Area, 06.07.2008 17:09

On July 1st, Starbucks announced that it will be closing 600 stores. Starbucks has been expanding for the past two decades and in many cases bought out other chains resulting in stores located within blocks or even on the same block as each other. Consumers in San Francico and New York have been vocal about the urban blight created by a Starbucks on every corner. The IWW Starbucks Workers Union responded to the closures saying they are deeply troubled that management's numerous missteps are resulting in more serious hardships for baristas, bussers, and shift supervisors. Starbucks has a history of anti-union activity and the IWW held a global day of action against Starbucks on July 5th.

Demonstrations against the apartheid wall in Palestine

San Francisco Bay Area, 06.07.2008 01:39

Demonstrations against the apartheid Wall are a daily occurrence in Palestine. On July 1, in Ni'lin, seven caterpillar bulldozers were destroyed during a demonstration.

City of Ashland Chamber of Commerce VIOLATES the First Amendement

Portland, 05.07.2008 22:39

Regarding Ashland's 4th of July Parade which is run by the Chamber of Commerce, here is the bottom line: "The ACLU and the SOJWJ, therefore, respectfully demand that, first, the Chamber alter its fee structure so as not to discriminate based on the content of entrants' message, and second, the Chamber refund the additional payment of $70 paid by SOJwJ for the 2007 Ashland Fourth of July Parade. If the Chamber fails to do both of these things, the ACLU of Oregon and SOJwJ are prepared to file a lawsuit to obtain this relief, plus the recovery of reasonable attorney fees."

The Portland Gun Show, Immigration, and the Turner Diaries

Portland, 05.07.2008 22:39

We're now witness to the largest wave of human migration the planet has ever seen. Driven by a new, truly international form of capitalism, human populations are alternately violently displaced, economically pressured, invited, coerced into relocation across the globe by civil wars, low intensity wars, high intensity wars, famines, droughts, hurricanes, floods, trade policies, austerity, other countless other economic and environmental catastrophies. This is globalized capitalism. We live in a time of threatened ecological collapse and the beginnings of capitalism's greatest tragedy-the possibility of a human created mass die-off of mamallian and other forms of life.

To Act As Spectators Do

Portland, 05.07.2008 22:39

In the recent months I have heard rumors, some true while some are a bit far off, that the Northwest anarchists have their shit together. That we are "actually doing shit". Sometimes I can't help but feel that that is what it is: shit. Sometimes people allow their head to expand a bit, even sometimes anarchists attack fellow comrades over the silliest things as if they have all the answers as to how to "create real change" and that the "stupid anarchists" are just hot headed or adhere to some doctrine called "the politics of fun". But I grin a bit, maybe in an awkward way sometimes. Like during the times when I have heard excitedly "We have been on bombs and Shields two time in the last six months!" from fellow anarchists, from people who seem to think they are in a movie.
