East Palo Alto Rent Control Battle Gains Ground on Two Fronts

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.09.2008 15:08

A San Mateo County Superior Court Judge ruled on September 5th that East Palo Alto is entitled to crucial evidence they need in their fight against Page Mill Properties. This win for renters comes on top of a Rent Stabilization Board Hearing on August 27 that found in favor of the tenants.

On September 2nd, tenants supported by rent control activists from Youth United for Community Action and the Raging Grannies demonstrated their displeasure with Page Mill's continued legal attempts to flout the Rent Stabilization Ordinance, staging a sit-in and street demonstration at the landlord's office.



Demonstrators Do It with Humor at Republican National Convention

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.09.2008 15:08

During protests at the Republican National Convention in Minnesota, performance artists from the San Francisco Bay Area rolled around in "Oily Dollars" symbolizing the dirty connection between Big Oil and elected officials. Not all convention attendees were amused. Ed Matthews, Republican candidate for Minnesota's 4th Congressional district, took after Jeff Grubler of the performance group Ronald Reagan Home for the Criminally Insane and grabbed Grubler's McCain mask. When Grubler tugged on Matthews' credentials, he was thrown to the ground by a uniformed officer who cuffed him while keeping his knee on the back of his neck. Grubler was then arrested and released after being detained for close to an hour.

Свободная ярмарка (самиздата) в Лошицком парке

Belarus, 09.09.2008 13:37

В рамках Минского фестиваля самиздата 14 сентября 2008 года в Лошицком парке пройдёт свободная ярмарка (начало в 15:00). На ней будут представлены издания - участники фестиваля, а также множество нужных в хозяйстве вещей и полезных услуг. Одна маленькая деталь - на ярмарке всё будет бесплатно!

В капиталистическом лексиконе "свободный рынок" есть экономическая система, где правит бал конкуренция между производствами и людьми. Слово "свободный" в этом словосочетании - лишь насмешка; мы прекрасно знаем, что люди в такой системе несвободны и ресурсы не находятся в свободном доступе.

На по-настоящему свободной ярмарке царит экономика дара, в которой ничто не подлежит продаже, но всем делятся. У тебя на балконе завалялся футбольный мяч, хотя ты давно бросила играть в футбол? Твой ребёнок вырос из одежды, не успев ни разу её надеть? На твоей полке стоят книги, прочитать которые всё равно руки не дойдут? Приноси и дари! И не забудь найти что-нибудь для себя.

Если у тебя нет лишних вещей, т…

Support Krzysztof killed at Vobro chocolate factory! 11 Sep 2008, 9:00, Brodnica

Meet “VOBRO” in the kitchen! Come to the picket! 11 Sep 2008, 9:00, Brodnica

image 6209 While a young man covered in chocolate was bleeding on the floor, the work team busied itself cleaning the chocolate machine, thinking up a credible account of what happened that would not damage the company’s “repuation”. The company’s policy is based on marketing, where profit counts more than the health of a human being. Workers’ rights don’t exist, let alone any humanitarianism or ethics. Given this sort of company policy, it’s difficult to expect any sort of reaction from the owner of the “Vobro” sweet factory in Brodnica

It’s strange all the same that other workers, residents in the town and even local media are stunningly silent about the tragedy, sticking to the “nothing happened” version. But something did happen – a young p…

9 Setembre: Assemblea Unitària Contra la Directiva de les 65 hores

La modificació de la Directiva europea sobre el temps de treball és una enorme agressió contra la classe treballadora. Ens volen fer retrocedir un segle, posant-nos novament en jornades "legals" de 10 a 12 hores i sis dies per setmana. És precisa una resposta contundent, que cal organitzar de la manera més àmplia, unitària i democràtica. Amb la finalitat d'acordar un pla d'acció unitari, moviments socials i persones lliures convoquem:

El pròxim 9 de setembre a les les 19 hores a la casa de la Soli

(C/ Vistalegre nº 15, metro St. Antoni)

La modificació de la Directiva europea sobre el temps de treball que van aprovar els ministres de Treball de la UE i que ara ha de passar pel parlament europeu per a la seva aprovació definitiva, és un atac brutal contra la classe treballadora.

La nova Directiva proposada autoritza als estats membres a canviar les seves lleis per a permetre l'allargament de la jornada setmanal de treball fins a les 60 hores (65 en el cas de col·lectius com el sanitari o bombers, els descansos dels quals en les guàrdies deixen de considerar-se temps de treball).

També permet fixar per llei que la jornada setmanal "normal" (la de fins a 48 hores) sigui considerada com "una mitjana anual", de manera que el treballador estaria permanentment a la disposició de l'empresa i les hores extra o festius passarien a ser considerats com hores ordinàries.

Prominent PDX Activist Arrested For Bogus Charge At Anti-Foie Gras Demonstration!

Mike D, a prominent Portland activist (AR, Human Rights, Earth, Labor) was arrested at the Anti-Foie Gras demonstration Saturday night.

Budryk coal miners have been on strike since 17 December 2007 and appeal for your help. The miners are fighting for equal pay with other miners. Miners in Poland have for a long time been legally recognised as doing work "which is significantly harmful to one's health or onerous" (pl) (many miners die in accidents or die young due to the long term health effects of mining). They are compensated for this (with early retirement etc.), in line with the participatory economics (parecon) principle of "remuneration according to effort and sacrifice". Because the miners' situa…

Ecuadorian police detained five journalists associated with Ecuador Indymedia late Tuesday night, May 6th. Four of the five were released from custody on Wednesday afternoon. The government says that the four activists were detained because of their relationship with the fifth detainee, Ecuadorian resident and Colombian national Antonio Alcívar.

The government at first refused to issue a statement on the matter or inform the detainees of the reason for their arrests.

The Demonstration

On the 29th March a demo against U.S. missile base in Poland took place in Slupsk (northern Poland). More about the demo: http://www.tarcza.org and http://www.m29.bzzz.net.

Huge police forces were mobilized before the demo. Few days before the demonstration, policemen intruded on the demonstration organizers asking about the details of the protest and were trying to intimidate them. During the demo itself, where from 500 to 800 people took part, the police was not offensive. The police units were not visible, that’s why the demonstration was peaceful. At the square where the hydepark took place, there was a big police car with video cameras.

The atmosphere got more tense when some of the activists (100-200 people) went …
