Stop SH20 PPP and Tolls: Public Meeting Oct 8

Aotearoa, 01.10.2008 02:40

Citizens Against Privatisation announce public meeting: 7pm, Wed October 8, Wesley Community Centre, Mt Roskill The government continues to ignore public rejection of road tolls and so-called road pricing, privatised roads, and commercialisation and privatisation of public infrastructure and services. National threatens massive spending on public private partnerships (PPPs) - for roads, schools, hospitals, prisons… "In 1996," Rose Hollins, co-spokesperson for Citizens Against Privatisation (CAP) says, "construction of the Mt Roskill/Waterview section of SH20 was costed at only $72 million. Now, the projected tunnel price is $1.89 billion, to be built by a PPP that's been decided over the heads of the public, and followed by up to 45 years of road tolls until it's handed back, probably in poor repair, to our great grandchildren. This is a massive rip off." Links: George Monbiot on PPPs: Private Affluence, Public Rip-Off | Private Public Partnerships

Battle in Seattle Draws Both Praise and Criticism from Activists

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.10.2008 00:39

The movie Battle in Seattle is based on real events that took place surrounding the demonstrations against the World Trade Organization Meeting in 1999. San Francisco Bay area activists were involved in the protest and contributed to the production of the film.

Indybay contributed footage of subsequent demonstrations.

Indigenous Rights – The Galdino Mural

Aotearoa, 30.09.2008 20:11

On Sunday 14 September in Waitangi Skate Park Wellington’s top graffiti crew Triple S (TS) painted a mural supporting indigenous rights. In the month when the 'October 15th' deposition hearing is taking place involving members of Tuhoe and other New Zealand activists who supported Maori indigenous struggle for self determination, this mural could not have come at a better time. Triple S Crew were approached to paint this mural by Dean Hapeta (Te Kupu – www. tekupu. com) on behalf of a USA-based activist music group, IR (http://onewatchman.wordpress. com), that uses music to support indigenous rights. This had been a worldwide call-out to help remember the horrific death of the Pataxo Indian Galdino Jesus dos Santos, an indigenous man who while he lay on the streets sleeping, was murdered by a group of rich children, who as a “joke” to poured gasoline on him and set fire to him. Their treatment in the justice system was privileged and they only received mild sentences, as the life of this indigenous man was not seen as that significant. It has been ten years since his death but Galdino’s murder will not be forgotten. Due to political pressure, none of the traditional murals that are painted in Brazil to represent such a loss in a community were allowed. This is why Triple S Crew decided that they would step up and honour this life.

An Anti-War Resurgence?

Boston, 30.09.2008 02:09

Toward the end of his 2007 essay The Shock of Victory, David Graeber points out that the US government has taken extraordinary steps to protest-proof the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Among other measures, the Pentagon forbids photographers from taking pictures of soldiers’ coffins returning to the US Military tactics are designed more to avoid US casualties than to win battles. Even in the face of excruciating labor shortages, with some soldiers returning for their fourth tour of duty, there has been no discussion of reinstating the draft, because even George W. Bush realizes that such a move would touch off massive demonstrations all over the country. RELATED: Join the anti-war rally on October 11th: www.oct11boston.org

NO MORE FOIE GRAS Double Demo: Fenouil and Blue Hour

Portland, 29.09.2008 07:38

What: Foie Gras Double Demo
When: Saturday, September 20th 6:30 pm
Where: MEET @ NW 10th and Davis (by Blossoming Lotus)
Why: No More Foie Gras!!!
Saturday September 20th - Raise Your Voice... No More Foie Gras!

This Saturday, join fellow activists in the resistance against Foie Gras. The night will be a tour through the cruelty of the Pearl District, as there will be two targets- Fenouil and Blue Hour

In case you haven't heard, the campaign to eliminate Foie Gras in Portland is heating up! Every Saturday, and many other days during the week, activists gather outside Bluehour to educate the public about foie gras and to protest business partners Kenny Giambalvo (yes that's Kenny G.) and Bruce Carey for the culinary cruelty they promote at their Pearl District restaurant. With the truth at their doorstep, the duo still refuse to make the ethical decision to remove foie gras from their blood-soaked menu... and the activists, armed with compassion, refuse to give up on the truth. Even recently, a group of autonomous individuals stink bombed the dining room in protest of Bluehour's support of animal cruelty ( link to portland.indymedia.org).



Harmeet Sooden Files Official Complaint Over Illegal Deportation

Aotearoa, 29.09.2008 07:10

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – Harmeet Singh Sooden, who was held hostage in Iraq for four months in 2005-2006, has filed an official complaint to the governments of Canada and New Zealand and the United Nations for human rights violations committed against him by the Government of Israel in the course of denying him entry to the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Mr Sooden travelled to Israel on 14 June 2008 to work as a human rights defender with International Solidarity Movement (ISM). ISM is an international human rights organisation composed of Palestinians, Israelis and internationals who monitor the human rights situation and protect human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. After declaring the purpose of his visit, Mr Sooden was assaulted and injured, threatened, held in solitary confinement, denied the right to legal counsel and consular representation as well as the right to appeal his deportation order in a court of law, and unlawfully deported on 18 June 2008—all in contravention of Israeli and international law.

Are you Supporting Millionaires for Clark or Key?

Danyl Strype takes a nervous look at the past record and likely future of a parliament controlled by either National *or* Labour, and proposes a drastic rethink of what democratic governence means in practice. Kia ora koutou I recently got an invite to a group on FaceHook called Vote With Both Eyes Open, which focuses on reminding voters in this year's New Zealand General Election about the past crimes of the National Party? Seems to me like they've just got the Other Eye Open to the One-Eyed, Helen-hating anti-Labour cheerleaders. If they really want people to have Both Eyes Open, they'd need to be critical of Labour as well - on point of policy and past actions, not shallow personal attacks (Helen is a bossy, nanny-statist, John is smarmy, corporate-raider etc).

Dispatches from week 3 - Operation 8 depositions hearing

Aotearoa, 28.09.2008 23:40

The last five days of the depositions hearing has been endless, mysterious, boring, interspersed with nano-seconds of excitement. Unfortunately the suppression orders still stand so I can’t tell you about the nano-statements of excitement. Possibly they only seem exciting in comparison with read-back guy, who continues to mangle Te Reo in a way I didn’t was know possible. When a friend said his favourite readback-guy mispronunciation was: why-care-moan-a, I couldn’t figure out what the original word was supposed to be (waikaremoana). The big question people keep asking me is whether or not the crown will meet the prima facie case on all the charges, or whether some will be dropped. A couple of the lawyers are optimistic that a prima facie case won’t be met against their clients. [More]

Olympia, WA: Rowdy Critical Mass Turns Into Arrest

Portland, 28.09.2008 21:39

The ride started out on Red Square at the Evergreen State College at 5:00pm with many people joining in along the way. The mass shouted and cheered as they drove by, feeling the power they shared together. Many people were vocally opposed to the existence of cars and shouted insults and other words of anger at SUV's and expensive looking cars for the poison they spew and the lives they take. When the yuppies yelled back, some even pretended to shoot them.

CarShare comes to Ashland

Rogue Valley, 28.09.2008 04:39

Car sharing is a growing phenomenon that started in Switzerland back in 1987 and now has spread globally. Here in the United States there are car shares in places such as Boulder, Portland, San Francisco, and Eugene. The size of the carshare programs range from one car to a fleet of 100 cars. The idea of car sharing has now come to Ashland. Ashland CarShare is beginning to turn into a reality thanks to committed community members.

What is CarSharing?

Car sharing allows drivers to become members of a group that share a vehicle. This type of program is typically ideal for people who don't need to do a lot of driving, but still would like to use a car once and a while.

Carsharing programs allows one to break the chains of car ownership. It helps the community by reduces traffic congestion. It also helps the environment. People drive less and as a result less fossil fuel is burned.

Wellington Bus Drivers: The Fight is Still on

Aotearoa, 28.09.2008 01:40

The Go Wellington Lockout By Nick Kelly: Wellington Tramways Union President As most of you know on Monday the Tramways Union (who cover the Wellington Bus drivers) and the Manufactoring and Construction Union (who represent the workshop workers) voted to reject the latest company offer. We began limited industrial action on Wednesday morning with a 1 hour strike. However before this first strike had happened the company issued and indefinate lockout notice starting 5am Thursday September 25th. For the 1 hour strike we decided to hold a stopwork meeting at the Wellington Railway Station to discuss the lockout. Management tried to claim that the strike action we were taking was illegal. Drivers at Kilbirnie got on a couple of buses and drove to the station. The acting depot manager told me as Union President that I should tell the workers to get back to work, and that we weren't to take a bus to the rail. The workers ignored this threat and now I face some sort of retribution for disobeying "lawful instruction from my employer". The union now as a new claim that on settlement the company will drop all retribution against workers involved in the dispute. [More]

Local DIY Wheat processing yields over 600 lbs.

Portland, 27.09.2008 17:38

As reported on this website a few days ago, a group of us went out and hand-harvested a bunch of wheat from a field outside town. We have since processed it, which involved threshing and winnowing. This took a few days, many people, and yielded over 600 lbs. of wheat berries! Now it is being distributed through a creative scheme that rewards monetary investors and worktraders alike.

We threshed it on tarps in the driveway under a fir tree in the Hawthorne district. We winnowed it in front of electric fans, pouring from bucket to bucket. One helper found that a basket with just the right holes in it worked well to sift off the straw and big pieces before bringing it to the fan. This discovery led to cleaner berries and less time in front of the fans.

The grand total for the harvest: 636 lb.!

Under an arrangement that was hatched this winter, 40% of that will be divided among the people who spent time helping
