Heathrow to Kingsnorth Climate Caravan 2008

United Kingdom, 07.08.2008 22:08

From Sunday 27th of July to Sunday 3rd of August, the 'Heathrow to Kingsnorth Climate Caravan' that traversed London by foot and wheels, made it's way to the Climate Action Camp 2008 near Kingsnorth power station in Kent. The 60 mile Caravan route that mostly followed the south side of the Thames, started near Heathrow Airport after a Climate Conference [Pics] had taken place on Saturday 26th in Harlington. The Caravan was hosted along its route by local communities who supported the participants with food and accommodation. A series of events took place every night to act as local outreach in the run up to the Camp, as well as to meet and share experiences with local people and groups taking collective action against the root causes of climate change in their communities.

The caravan, that was supported by the Bicycology cyclists' collective and the Notts Veggies, was joined by a group from Bristol, whilst other Caravans left Scotland and Nottingham for Kingsnorth too. A Little Peace Boat also sailed it's way to join the Climate Camp protesters before moving on to Westminster.

Resistência global

Galiza, 06.08.2008 21:40

Assistimos inexoravelmente a umhas relaçons de dominaçom, opressom e exploraçom cada vez mais globalizadas. Mas, de maneira imparável, globalizam-se também as resistências, os afectos insurgentes e as relaçons de contra-poder. Também na e desde a Galiza: activistas galegas de diversos movimentos, levam tempo realizando um trabalho neste sentido em diversos pontos do planeta.

Nestas semanas várias companheiras galegas uniam-se à Caravana Internacional a Chiapas, que foi submetida a intentos constantes de boicote. Ao mesmo tempo outrx companheirx galegx despraçadx a Palestina sofria a repressom dos soldados israelitas junto a outros activistas internacionais e companheiros palestinos por participarem nas manifestaçons de Ni'lin (http://galiza.indymedia.org/gz/2008/08/16622.shtml)contra o Muro. Durante estas manifestaçons produzia-se o assasinato (http://galiza.indymedia.org/gz/2008/07/16599.shtml) em Ni'lin dum rapaz de 10 anos. Ao dia seguinte, outro jovem era ingressado com morte cerebral por disparos do exército. A repressom continua na vila palestina, co balanço de dous mortos e várias activistas internacionais e palestinas feridas de diversa consideraçom. Mas a luita segue (http://galiza.indymedia.org/gz/2008/08/16617.shtml). O Muro, todos os muros, caerám.

Olympia Attorney LeGrand Jones in Tacoma Court Wednesday

Seattle, 06.08.2008 18:39

Courtroom support has been requested for LeGrand Jones, the first person arrested during this round of PMR activity in Tacoma. LeGrand, a local attorney from Olympia, was arrested for failing to provide ID. Washington State has no "stop and identify" law, so officers had no right to demand ID of someone not committing a crime. He will appear in Court at Tacoma's City-County building at 1:30PM Wednesday, and requests the pleasure of our company if we are able.

Gaza Under Siege

Boston, 06.08.2008 13:39

After Hamas' January 25, 2006 electoral victory, Israel targeted Gaza oppressively. All outside aid was cut off. Sanctions and an economic embargo were imposed, and the democratically elected government was falsely called a terrorist organization and isolated. Stepped up repression followed along with repeated IDF incursions, attacks, killings, targeted assassinations, arrests, destruction of property and more in a pattern all too familiar to Palestinians for over six decades. Gazans are imprisoned in their own land and have been traumatized for months. In June 2007, things got worse after Israel placed the Territory under siege - described by some as medieval because of its extreme harshness.



Portland Climate Convergence Action

Portland, 06.08.2008 02:09

Today, August 4, 2008, in the final event of the Climate Convergence, about two dozen people participated in a multi faceted rally, street theater, and march to NW Natural Gas.

The first portion of the action took place along the Portland Waterfront, just north of the west side of the Hawthorne Bridge, where, amid chants and exhortations in favor of riding bicycles, tickets were given to mock automobiles by officers of the Oil Enforcement Agency. Replete with chants and signs, the event was mainly organized around resistance to the proposed 6 lane I-5 bridge over the Columbia River.

Leaving there the gathering marched along the Waterfront, where at the Morrison Bridge they came upon a young man locked down on an access ramp to the Morrison Bridge. As the group arrived, a young woman climbed the structure of the bridge and unfurled a banner which read, "6 More Lanes = More Sick People NO EXPANSION."

The not-so-secret 'guide to policing protest'

United Kingdom, 06.08.2008 01:08

Sometime during a busy day of policing the Camp For Climate Action, near Kingsnorth Power Station in Kent, an officer dropped a so-called 'Pocket Legislation Guide on Policing Protest'. The document, issued by the National Extremism Tactical Coordination Unit (NETCU), gives an overview of legislation the police can use to stifle all forms of legitimate protest. The document, which is supposedly not for public consumption, was subsequently posted on Indymedia UK by a camper attending the Climate Camp.

NETCU describe themselves as "promoting a coordinated response to domestic extremism by providing tactical advice to the police service, and information and guidance to industry and government." According to NETCU Watch, an online initiative to monitor the service's activities, the main purpose of their existence is to monitor protest groups, especially related to animal rights campaigns. A further concern is that the police seem to be supporting commerce (especially the vivisection industry) beyond their remit of upholding the law.

"A Union Man:
The Life and Work of Julius Margolin"

On RVTV 6:00 p.m., Aug. 6, 13 & 20

Jackson and Josephine counties

Southern Oregonians Steve Ryan and Wes Brain are part of the documentary team.

Produced and Directed by George Mann
Edited by Steve Ryan and dennydaniel.com
Principle videography by Wes Brain, Renee Russell and Steve Ryan.

Julius Margolin, 92 on August 16th, is a living legend in the New York City labor movement. He's been active since the 1930s in the CIO, the National Maritime Union and Local 52 of the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees, which he has represented in the NYC Central Labor Council for 34 years. A tireless fighter for justice, equality, and against war, Julius embarked on a new career in 1999, making music and CDs with George Mann while still hitting picket lines and organizing workers in New York and around the United States.

"A Union Man" is the story of his life through his eyes as well as those he's met along the way. Featuring guest appearances by Utah Phillips, Faith Petric and former NMU Vice President Joe Stack, as well as concert performances, it's an affectionate portrait of a rank-and-file activist still fighting for justice in his tenth decade on this planet.

Seattle, 05.08.2008 19:42

Investor Landlord Fights City Built on Rent Control

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.08.2008 14:39

East Palo Alto's rent stabilization program, established by voters in the early 1980's, was designed to help tenants know the maximum their future rent increases could be, and enable them to plan family budgets with a measure of certainty. But in 2005 Page Mill Properties started to buy up residences on East Palo Alto's west side and disputes first with tenants and then with the city brewed.Apartment residents are now seeing multiple rent hikes in a year, often in the range of 30 to 40%. One group of tenants has particular reason to be outraged. Many East Palo Alto residents are public employees and their retirement system, CalPERS, has Page Mill Properties in its portfolio of investments. CalPERS is the pension fund for California public employees and is one of the largest financial institutions in the US.

Across the street info tables were set up from Troops Out Now, Veterans For Peace, IrawqVeterans Against the War, and other peace groups.

PMR in the Local Corporate Press

Seattle, 03.08.2008 16:08

The Tacoma News Tribune (TNT) has a strategy for superficial reporting that works in the same way most corporate media works. Last night Ian and Drew from the TNT focused on what was peculiar and humorous 'about' the activists, neglecting to take notice of what was peculiar and humorous 'to' the activists. This is perhaps the single most annoying tactic of the bourgeois media, since it is not only a "superficial" excuse for reporting, it is also a way to characterize any action in a way that seems like real reporting but is essentially degrading.
