El ayuntamiento de Iru�ea contra las fiestas de San Fermin Txikito

Euskal Herria, 19.09.2008 09:10

El ayuntamiento de UPN y Yolanda Barcina ha prohibido todos los actos de las fiestas de San Ferm�n Txikito, las fiestas del casco viejo de Iru�ea. Desde 1973 el barrio ha organizado las fiestas de forma popular, a trav�s de su Comisi�n de Fiestas: un espacio abierto, donde participan muy diferentes colectivos, as� como comerciantes y numerosos vecinos y vecinas.

El ayuntamiento se arroga la potestad de organizar estos eventos, prohibiendo los actos del programa elaborado por el vecindario. No es dif�cil descubrir en este asunto un nuevo escal�n en la estrategia de UPN para acabar con toda iniciativa que surja al margen de las instituciones.

El vecindario del Casco Viejo apoya a la Comisi�n de Fiestas, que unos d�as atr�s invit� en rueda de prensa a participar en San Ferm�n Txikito.

Local Activists Drop Banner in Solidarity with Klamath Justice Coalition

Portland, 19.09.2008 00:39

This morning at 8:20 local activists hung a banner over Interstate-84 in solidarity with tribes of the Klamath River, who have called for a Day of Action against Pacificorp, which has stalled the removal of its four outmoded dams, which are choking life from the waters and communities of the Klamath Watershed.

Warren Buffet, the owner and wealthiest person on the planet, has repeatedly refused to remove the dams—disregarding indefensible costs to the environment, as well as the cultural, physical, and economic wellbeing of indigenous, agricultural, and other local communities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Not only do the dams prevents salmon from spawning upriver, but they have also brought about large growths of algae toxic to fish, plants, and humans.

In den nächsten Tagen wird das zweite Verbot in Rekordzeit folgen, daran zweifelt niemand. Am Mittwoch wurden auch die Mitglieder der Antirepressionsorganisationen als "terroristisch" eingestuft. Auch sie wurden per Definition nun zu "Mitgliedern der ETA" gestempelt, wie schon die Angeklagten im Massenprozess 18/98, weil sie ebenso wie die für ein sozialistisches und unabhängiges Baskenland eintreten. Sie erhielten Haftstrafen zwischen 8 und 10 Jahren.

Caravan To Support The Struggle For Survival On The Front Lines Of Resistance at Big Mountain

Portland, 18.09.2008 16:39

Indigenous nations are disproportionately targeted by fossil fuel extraction & environmental devastation and Black Mesa is no exception. At this moment Peabody Coal Co. is planning to seize tribal lands and massively expand dirty coal strip-mining operations. In 30 years of controversial operation, Peabody's Black Mesa Mine has been the source of an estimated 325 million tons of CO2 that have been discharged into the atmosphere.* If expansion plans are permitted, ... Coal from the Black Mesa mine could contribute an additional 290 million tons of CO2 to the global warming crisis!*

Institutional racism has fueled neglect and abandonment of public needs such as water, maintenance of roads, health care, and schools. Daily life for Big Mountain residents hasn't changed too much over the years, except that more of them have become elderly and now struggle with daily chores. Due to lack of local job opportunities and federal strangulation on Indian self-sufficiency, extended families are forced to live many miles away to earn incomes and have all the social amenities which include choices in mandatory American education. On behalf of their peoples, their sacred ancestral lands, and future generations, residents of Black Mesa continue their staunch resistance to the efforts of the US Government, which is acting in the interests of the Peabody Coal Company to devastate whole communities & ecosystems, and de-stabilize our planet's climate for the profit of an elite few. We are at a critical juncture and must take a stand in support of communities on the front lines of resistance now! By assisting with direct, on-land projects with the Sovereign communities of Big Mountain, Black Mesa you are helping families resist an illegal occupation and to stay on their lands, who serve as the very blockade to coal mining! Projects include chopping wood, water catchment, health care, corral, roof, & home repairs.

** There is a caravan heading out from Portland. If you want to participate, we will be having weekly organizing meetings in October

UK: sąd aprobuje akcje bezpośrednie w obronie środowiska

Poland, 18.09.2008 13:40

Brytyjski sąd uniewinnił przedwczoraj 6 aktywistów Greenpeace oskarżonych o próbę zamknięcia elektrowni węglowej w Kent, uznając że mieli oni ku temu "uzasadniony prawnie powód", gdyż elektrownia ta powoduje ogromne straty dla środowiska przyczyniając się do globalnego ocieplenia, a z kolei szkody te przewyższają znacznie straty spowodowane przerwaniem pracy zakładu. Ławnicy Maidstone Crown Court podjęli taką decyzję po wysłuchaniu zeznań eksperta NASA ds. klimatu Jamesa Hansena, innuickiego przywódcy z Grenlandii i doradcy ds. środowiska brytyjskiej Partii Konserwatywnej. Biegli zeznali, że elektrownia Kingsnorth Power Plant emituje codziennie do atmosfery 20 000 ton CO2 - taką sama ilośc jak 30 najmniej zatruwających atmosferę państw świata, oraz że brytyjski rząd ma przygotowane już plany budowy nowej, zasilanej węglem elektrowni obok tej funkcjonującej już na półwyspie Hoo w Kent.

In honor of our third annual First Nations Day and Native EcoSymposium, Red Earth Descendants invites the community to share a weekend committed to the issue of SALMON SURVIVAL along the Klamath and Trinity Rivers. In accordance to the vision and commitment R.E.D. has to make positive and healing relations with the indigenous peoples of this region--the Karuk, Hupa, Yurok, Takelma, Shasta, Klamath, Calapooya, Modoc and Yahooskin Tribes--we understand the survival of salmon in their homelands is a CORE CULTURAL ISSUE of survival for the Indigenous People. We intend to let this be our platform for education and discussion at our EcoSymposium this year. We've asked some of these tribal connections to take the lead on the subject matter. Also a core commitment for R.E.D. is the honoring of youth and elder projects. It was the Native American Student Union (NASU) youth from Southern Oregon University who inspired this subject matter to gain attention in our group as a small contingency of Karuk/Hupa/Yurok/Klamath students have worked as activists on the salmon crisis most of their lives and want to participate in the EcoSymposium, bringing the community their perspective as Native youth, holding on to the survival of their way of life--with salmon being at the center of their existence.

Policies for Repression

Baltimore, 17.09.2008 20:09

Although it's unclear to what extent the mass media (or as I, turning their own equivocations against them, have now taken to calling them, the 'self-described journalists' embedded in the national newspapers and networks) accurately relayed the events, anyone paying attention to the alternative press during the Republican National Convention knows the extent to which the city of St. Paul did everything in its power to violently and preemptively squash any manifestations of dissent. Most spectacular, perhaps, was the arrest of Democracy Now!'s Amy Goodman along with her producers Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar, and most troubling are the arrests of the RNC 8, members of the RNC Welcoming Committee, a group which did not plan a single protest itself, but who, due in part to the tales told by paid informants, are facing charges of 'Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism.'

Of course one could (and should) argue that this repression is the predictable extensions of the illegal and inhumane policies perpetrated as central components of the War on Terror, the new 'standards' for the use of torture and extrajudicial detainment from Abu Ghraib to Guantanamo coming home to roost. And, on the other hand, as anyone who's been involved in direct action activism for a while should recognize, the police in St. Paul were dishing out the latest variation on an old theme —- the practice of how to shut down a counter-summit protest in the United States having become something of a cottage industry for consultants like John Timoney, who cut his police state teeth during the 2000 protests against the RNC in Philadelphia, and went on to formulate what's been called 'The Miami Model' during the anti-FTAA protests in 2003.

Nevertheless, the recent events in St. Paul have brought to light a new element in this distressing constellation of surveillance, midnight raids at gunpoint, preemptive detention, and an ever expanding political expediency of the charge of 'terrorism'. While it's one thing for activists to suspect that the suppression of dissent is becoming a standard operating procedure, it's another thing entirely to see cities and police departments themselves recognizing this explicitly. The city of St. Paul was proud to announce that taxpayers would not bear the brunt of any lawsuits leveled against the city and its police response —- for it had had the foresight to compel the Republican Party itself (in other words, it's corporate sponsors) to take out an insurance policy which would indemnify the city against whatever claims the rabble might bring against it, to the tune of $10 million in coverage. Apparently, at least since the 2004 RNC protests in NYC, where settlements so far have run to at least $2 million, this kind of 'forward thinking' has become de rigeur for the host city of a convention wanting to make sure that the temporary elimination of civil liberties doesn't come at too high a cost.

Lauren Regan (CLDC) on Marie Mason's plea agreement

Portland, 17.09.2008 00:38

Lauren Regan of Eugene's Civil Liberties Defense Center says in regard's to Marie Mason's plea agreement: "I state with unequivocal confidence and knowledge that Marie has been absolutely stalwart in her commitment to not cooperate with the government, and to do no act that would damage the larger environmental movement in any way."

Marie has not received any favors or special treatment by the US Attorneys prosecuting her in Michigan; in fact, it is despicable that Marie may do more time then any other Green Scare defendant to date as a result of her choice to not snitch. Marie joins Jonathan Paul, Daniel McGowan, Sadie, Exile, Briana Waters, Tre Arrow, Rod Coronado, Eric McDavid and several others I am probably forgetting to mention --these folks are wholeheartedly deserving of our support as activists that have maintained their integrity in the face of political persecution by the federal government. They will do extra days or years in prison as a result of their refusal to give information to the feds used to prosecute others. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with Marie's situation. If you are able to contribute financially, I'm sure they would deeply appreciate it, and if not, please show solidarity for Marie as she goes through the process of being yanked away from her children and family for a long time.

PHILIPPINES: Suspend US Military Deployments to Mindanao

Boston, 16.09.2008 17:39

A broad coalition of NGOs, social movements, and political parties from Mindanao and the rest of the country today called for all US military deployments in Mindanao suspended pending the conclusion of a fair and thorough probe by lawmakers. The Citizens’ Peace Watch, a group formed to monitor what it fears as the growing and permanent US military presence in the South, reiterated its recommendations from a fact-finding mission it conducted in Zamboanga City and Sulu last February. Members of the mission claim to have seen with their own eyes — and to have pictures of — the US’ military structures inside Camp Navarro in Zamboanga City.

Our Last-ditch EffortsTo Save Franklin School Shelter

DC, 16.09.2008 17:10

On the following morning, 9/11, I noticed dozens of people sitting in the dining area of Franklin. At a glance, I figured at least a dozen of them to be DHS employees. I proceeded to enter the room, but was quickly escorted out by Catholic Charities employee Harry Martinez. I left and returned an hour later to find Pat Handy getting out of a UPO (United Planning Org.)van, the vans used to transport the homeless during hypothermia. As we spoke, she informed me that she had not been to bed since the previous day. She entered the building and I went to get breakfast. Later that evening I would learn that many of the people whom I'd seen were homeless people from other shelters who'd been brought to Franklin early that morning. They were signed up for housing and given keys, as were some Franklin residents. Rumor has it that the number of non-residents who were brought to Franklin Shelter that morning was eventually added to the number of actual residents who were housed, so as to make it look as if they ALL had come from Franklin. If this proves to be true, it is essentially dishonest.
