On July 15th, 2008 over 150 community members rallied at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in downtown Providence where many immigrants were held after a raid that same day.

Many of the janitorial workers who were detained were in the midst of a labor dispute with their employers. A local militant workers association, Fuerza Laboral, had been organizing with the workers to get unpaid wages. (http://www.fuerza-laboral.org/)

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.07.2008 09:09

Two weeks ago a monument for the Abraham Lincoln Brigade was Vandalized. The words "Viva Durruti Y Orwell" were grafittied on the artwork in reference to Buenaventura Durruti and George Orwell who opposed the republican army that the Lincoln brigade was part of. In a statement posted on this site, the Worker Memorial Project wrote that the artwork was vandalized "The revolutionary movement in Spain was defeated by the Stalinist Soviet Union and it's global puppets and public relations hacks".

Mohammad Bakri, Director of Jenin Jenin Acquitted in Libel Suit

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.07.2008 01:09

On July 28th, at the Left Bank offices in Tel Aviv, a party was held to celebrate thirty years of artistic and political work by Mohammad Bakri, a well known Palestinian actor and director. Another reason for the celebration was a recent decision by a judge who ruled that Bakri cannot be sued for making the film Jenin Jenin. After producing Jenin Jenin, a documentary featuring interviews with residents of the refugee camp Jenin following the Israeli invasion in April 2002, Bakri was sued by a group of Israeli soldiers. The film shows through the testimony of Palestinians that the invasion of Jenin in April of 2002, constitute a war crime.

La Unidad de Intervención Policial se aplica para que el vallado de la conocida como "zona cero", donde el gobierno planea plantar la Macrocárcel de Maspalomas, se lleve a cabo como estaba previsto. Carolina Darias, la delegada del gobierno, aseguró que las obras se iban a llevar a cabo, y que la policía impediría que se vuelvan a parar, tras hacer un llamamiento "a la sensatez, a la cordura y a las reglas de juego democrático"

Ayer 28 de julio, los vecinos volvían a concentrarse como cada mañana para impedir que las máquinas de la empresa encargada, sin licencia, empezaran con las obras. La policía ha repartido leña de lo lindo. La brutalidad se ha cebado contra los vecinos. Leña y maltrato policial. Las imágenes dan fe de ello.

Trees and Bike Paths Endangered in Palo Alto

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.07.2008 15:39

Palo Alto residents and San Francisco Peninsula bike commuters are challenging Santa Clara County's plan to widen Middlefield Rd. near Oregon Expressway.

This will eliminate the buffer between cars and pedestrians now enjoyed by neighborhood walkers and students commuting to Jordan Middle School.

Colonos marroquíes atacan a pescadores y comerciantes saharauis en Dajla causando 60 heridxs

Canarias, 29.07.2008 14:10


ACTUALIZACIÓN:

# Detención del ex preso político saharaui Mahyub Oulad Chej
# Acción por el Sáhara




Fuentes de activistas de derechos humanos de la ciudad saharaui de Dajla, antiguo Villa Cisneros, informaron que en la localidad pesquera de Itereft a unos cien kilómetros al sur de Dajla, los pescadores saharauis establecidos en la zona sufrieron un salvaje ataque por miles de colonos marroquíes.

El incidente se registró el lunes 21 de julio de 2008 a las 19 horas GMT cuando los saharauis fueron atacados por grupos de pescadores marroquíes con todo tipo de armas blancas, arrojaron a un ciudadano saharaui al mar y provocaron decenas de heridos, 57 hasta el momento, cinco de ellos de extrema gravedad. Además quemaron diez vehículos todo terreno de propiedad saharaui y prendieron fuego al mercadillo de pescado de la localidad convirtiéndolo en cenizas.

Las autoridades de la administración no intervinieron hasta pasadas varias horas del ataque. La gendarmería marroquí y fuerzas auxiliares llegaron horas después al lugar una vez que se había destado la ira de los colonos contra lxs pescadorxs saharauis.

Unas 300 personas de la población saharaui al enterarse de los graves hechos acudieron al hospital de la ciudad con eslóganes y banderas saharauis para protestar y conocer el estado de los heridos. La policía marroquí intervino contra ellos para dispersarlos, siendo detenidos los ciudadanos saharauis Brahim Salem Neisuri y Rachid uld Esgayer.

Se trata de la agresión más grave contra civiles saharauis desarmados que protagonizan los colonos marroquíes en el Sáhara Occidental en un intento de Marruecos y sus colonos de expulsar a los saharauis del sector pesquero en la zona, a pesar de que éstos, según las propias Naciones Unidas, “son los únicos titulares de las riquezas pesqueras” del banco canario-sahariano.

132 Civilians Die During the Month of July in Afganistan by U.S. led forces

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.07.2008 02:39

During the month of July there were at least five separate incidents where civilians were killed by U.S. led NATO forces in Afghanistan. The worst of the five attacks took place in the Deh Bala district of the Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan, where a U.S. air strike killed 47 civilians on July 6th. Another air strike killed up to 22 Afghani civilians on July 2nd. Two days later missiles from U.S. helicopters struck civilians in Kunarn. 9 more Afghani civilians were killed in the province of Farah on July 15th. In a fourth attack, up to 50 civilians died and at least 7 more were wounded in the western province of Herat. The fifth and most recent attack occurred on July 20th, when at least 4 Afghani civilians were killed.



Looking into the DNC 'Round August

Boston, 29.07.2008 01:09

The 1960s civil rights movement is that period of “the struggle” which, because of age and family situation, the junior senator from Illinois was absent. This has been a source of tension between the candidate and the “sit-in” generation. Obviously those intangibles, those jokes, those habits and recipes passed down in the average African American household differ from those in the Senator’s youthful world and this, apparently has raised speculation as to his, well, culture. It’s noted that many black opinion maker and elected officials, including Cong. Lewis came late to ‘house Obama’. But August is coming, again…soon. And then Mr. Obama may well reach and ring as he appears capable of doing.

So what happens when you’re homeless in Seattle? Many find a doorway. Others, illegally camp out in various Green Spaces. And some are organizing to take matters into their own hands. A group of roughly 35 people gathered on a sunny University of Washington campus lawn to rally for a permanent homeless encampment. They’re calling it Nickelsville in response to Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels and the city’s recent sweeps on homeless camps found on hillsides, in greenbelts and beneath freeways.

Activists Take Over Incinerator Site

United Kingdom, 28.07.2008 19:09

'Stop Incineration Now!' protestors demonstrate their fury now that construction on the highly controversial incinerator plant has begun. Activists have taken over the site of the proposed new incinerator plant in Newhaven. They entered the premises under the cover of darkness last night in an organised attempt at non-violent direct action, after resistance through democratic means failed them. Several protestors formed a barricade by superglue-ing themselves to the road in an attempt to prevent vehicle access, whilst on the site itself, other members of the group 'locked-on' to machinery in order to halt further activity. They claim to be exercising their democratic right to protest non-violently in a last-ditch attempt to promote their concerns about the consequences of incinerators on public health and safety.

US Air Strikes Increase Afghani Death Toll

United States, 28.07.2008 01:07

From the Newswire: In at least five separate incidents during July alone, US-led NATO forces have killed as many as 132 civilians in Afghanistan. The attacks come at the heels of a trip to the Bagram and Jalalabad air bases by the leading Presidential contender, Senator Barak Obama (D-IL), in which he reiterated his long-held policy plans to increase the U.S. troop presence in the country by up to 10,000 more soldiers. "This is a war we have to win," proclaimed Obama, during his highly publicized and ongoing international trip.

The flurry of air strikes are part of a planned and ongoing offensive that has resulted in at least one official investigation that was called for by Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai, a strong supporter and ally of the Bush administration, who also met with Senator Obama during his visit this past weekend. On July 17, Democracy Now! reported that the latest air offensive is the most intense seen in Afghanistan since 2003. US-led forces have occupied the beleaguered, oil-rich nation since they invaded the country in 2001. Read Full Article by Andrew Kennis | Photo from aljazeera.net

Rally for Legacy workers on Monday. EVERYONE IS INVITED!

Portland, 27.07.2008 22:38

On Monday July 28th from 3p to 6p (media arriving at 5p....most important time to be there....) We are holding an informational picket in front of Emanuel Hospital on Vancouver Ave. THIS IS NOT A STRIKE

Legacy continues to ask most Emanuel Members of Local SEIU 49 to accept a 1% cost of living raise for 2008--that's 2% less than members at Good Samaritan are receiving this year. We need fair compensation and benefits to recruit and retain good staff so we can provide consistent, quality patient care. We have been bargaining for months and our contract ended June 30th. Legacy Admin. refuses to offer anything better than the 1% raise. April Whitworth sent out an email to over 50 Dr.s, and also to ALL EMANUEL USERS stating she "has been working with the State Appointed Mediator and the SEIU" on settling the new contract. there was almost no movement on our most important issues, and especially the insulting 1% raise.

Just about anybody who has spent much time in Seattle's open-air public market probably saw Jim playing at one time or another. He entertained, inspired and influenced many with his music.



VIDEO: New G.I. Coffeehouse

Seattle, 27.07.2008 20:38

A social movement doesn't have a specific place or a location. It lives in the actions, the minds, and the relationships between people. But there are places where the ideas of a movement develop, places where the movement's ideas go more mainstream.

A group of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) are planning to start up a GI coffeehouse near the entrance of the Fort Lewis military base in Washington State. Though the project is still in its planning stages, the idea is that it will be a center for supporting GI rights and war resistance in the region, as well as a place for GIs to get coffee right off the base.

Driver Hits Cyclists At Critical Mass Ride

Seattle, 27.07.2008 20:38

Just after 7 pm on July 25th, a group of about 100 Critical Mass cyclists was moving en masse down East Aloha, a narrow, winding arterial in an upscale neighborhood in Seattle. A man parked in a Subaru station wagon didn’t want to wait for the cyclists to pass because he had "a reservation". Screaming for the cyclists to get out of his way, the man pulled out of a parking spot, hitting one cyclist as he backed up onto the sidewalk and then another as he accelerated forward through the group of cyclists. The driver fled the scene of the accident with one of the injured cyclists still on his roof. A group of cyclists followed the car, confronting the driver a block later at Aloha and 15th Avenue East. When the police arrived, they arrested two of the cyclists but released the driver. Police spokesman Mark Jamieson said the driver is not considered an aggressor, but a victim.
