Corey Glass' Deportation Halted; Canadian Court Rules on Asylum Case

Boston, 12.07.2008 02:09

The day before he was scheduled for deportation, Corey Glass, a former sergeant with the National Guard, was granted a review of his case. Meanwhile, the pressure in Canada mounted to allow US war resisters seeking refuge to stay in that country, when Canada’s Federal Court ruled that the Immigration and Refugee Board should reconsider the asylum case of Joshua Key. The ruling was based on the right of soldiers to refuse improper orders that would violate the Geneva Conventions. A third war resister, Robin Long, was arrested that same day and is facing deportation Monday for failing to notify immigration officials of an address change.

Rosa Clemente accepts Vice Pres. invitation from Green candidate Cynthia McKinney

NYC-based Activist, Community Organizer Gets Green Party VP Nod

NYC, 11.07.2008 15:39

Days before the Green Party is scheduled to announce their official nominees for the 2008 Presidential Election, Cynthia McKinney has selected NYC-based activist Rosa Clemente to be her Vice President. Clemente, born in the South Bronx, is a graduate of SUNY Albany and Cornell University.

Following the announcement, Clemente released the following statement: "I am honored and excited to accept this invitation to run with Cynthia McKinney. Cynthia McKinney is a hero to me and many others across this country and around the world for her courage in standing up to George Bush while the Democratic Party establishment caved.

"This campaign is the opportunity the Hip-Hop generation has been working for. This is our time to address the issues affecting our communities – rising unemployment, the high cost of food and housing, a lack of quality public education and access to higher education, the prison-industrial complex, and unaccountable corporate media. These issues are not being addressed by either the Republican or Democratic nominee. "I choose to do this, not for me, but for my generation, my community and my daughter. I don't see the Green Party as an alternative; I see it as an imperative. I trust that my Vice Presidential run will inspire all people, but especially young people of color, to recognize that we have more then two choices. Together, we can build the future we've been wanting."

Against the G8 Summit 2008

United Kingdom, 11.07.2008 10:38

The G8 2008 took place in Hokkaido, Japan, from July 7th to July 9th. As in the past years, people from all over the world protested against this summit and the capitalist system it represents [Pics] both in Japan and in many places around the globe.

On Saturday the 5th of July, the International Day of Action Against the G8, there were protests worldwide against this year's G8 Summit. In Japan, around 5000 people took to the streets in Sapporo despite ongoing police repression [Photos | Videos 1 | 2 | 3 | 4] whilst hundreds of people had previously taken to the streets in Tokyo and Kyoto. International solidarity actions also took place in several cities, including Bilbao, Stuttgart [Video], Dordrecht, Nijmegen, Paris, Singapore, Berlin, Reykjavik and Lisbon.

Closer to home, a picket outside the Japanese embassy in London 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. The Day of Action around the UK Borders Agency started with a Critical Mass bike ride from Brixton to Croydon, the nerve centre of the Home Office's UK Border Agency, where several protests unfolded [Report | Photos 1 | 2 | Video]

From Monday 7th to Wednesday 9th, further days of action and blockades continued around the Summit location next to the Lake Toya in Hokkaido [Videos 1 | 2 | 3] A final statement by international activists was issued on Wednesday 9th after hundreds of activists joined a march called by the Hokkaido's Ainu indigenous communities. This was the concluding event of ten days of anti-G8 protests in Japan. The Japanese 'No! G8 Legal Team' issued an international call for further solidarity actions during the week of blockades [Second Call]. In London, a daily NO!G8 cafe was organised at the Bowl Court Social Centre to coincide with the G8 mobilisations, showing daily footage from Japan, screening films, presentations and discussions.

Radical Labor Takes Action Against Coffee Giant

United States, 11.07.2008 10:37

Starbucks Coffee Company was the target of a coordinated day of action by unions and labor radicals on June 5. Protests took place in a dozen US cities, as well as in Europe, Asia, Australia, and Latin America.

The protests followed an announcement that it was closing 600 stores in the US and laying off approximately 12,000 workers. Demonstrators particularly called out the company's union busting practices. The global day of action was called jointly by the Confederacion Nacional de Trabajadores (CNT-AIT) in Sevilla, Spain and the Starbucks Workers Union (IWW) in Grand Rapids, Michigan in response to two recent anti-union terminations.

Mill Road Social Centre - the story so far...

United Kingdom, 10.07.2008 21:09

Most of know what happened since, but let’s start in the beginning. On Tuesday night 20 May 2008, the building that formerly housed Wilco's automotive parts, and that had been standing empty for over a year, was squatted. This is the selfsame building where Tesco plans to open a controversial Express store. More about that later.

The aim of the squat was to turn the building into a much needed social centre, a focal point for the local Romsey (and Cambridge) community. It should be pointed out that the social centre is not connected to the No Mill Road Tesco campaign.

Since it opened, the centre has hosted numerous events, from women's roller derby to tango lessons, graffiti workshops, an art exhibition, open mic nights and acoustic gigs.

Free Food in Nottingham

United Kingdom, 10.07.2008 13:38

The old adage holds that there is no such thing as a free meal. Over the last few months, campaigners in Nottingham have been trying to prove this wrong, dishing out free vegan food to shoppers. Several events have been held in the city centre to tie in with Vegetarian Week, the Day of Action on Food and Climate Change and the Viva! Veggie Roadshow, with a further activity planned for UN World Food Day on October 16th.

While everybody loves free stuff, there is also an important point to the exercise with campaigners promoting a vegan-friendly lifestyle. This is beneficial not only for the animals, who would otherwise suffer the horrors of factory farming, but also for the planet. Livestock accounts for something in the order of 18% of greenhouse gas emissions
