10th Annual United Families &amp; Friends Remembrance procession

United Kingdom, 28.10.2008 12:10

On Saturday 25th October 2008,several hundred people attended the 10th Annual United Families & Friends Remembrance procession which was led by many family members of those who have died in suspicious circumstances in police custody, prison and 'secure' mental health facilities.

In customary tradition the procession made its way in dignified silence from Trafalgar Square down Whitehall to Downing Street in dutiful respect to those who mourn the loss of loved ones and to invoke their memory and the collective injustices that their deaths represent. In the past year 182 such deaths have been recorded recorded, and a banner carried in the march listed over 2500 who have died.

Troy Davis, Political Prisoner on Death Row

DC, 28.10.2008 05:10

Troy Anthony Davis has been a political prisoner on Death Row for more than half his life. His death by lethal injection sentence, which has been scheduled and stayed (put on hold) three times in the last year and a half, has most recently been stayed by the US Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. And yes, he is a political prisoner… “I am Troy Davis” has become a popular mantra of Davis’ supporters. This is reminiscent of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous quote: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” That being said, I am Troy Davis, a political prisoner on Death Row. I have been locked up for the majority of my life, but I remain hopeful. I do not deserve to die for a crime I DID NOT COMMIT.

Stop the War activist in court

United Kingdom, 27.10.2008 18:10

On Thursday 23rd October, Nottingham Crown Court rejected the appeal against the conviction of Henry Twigger. Henry was found guilty of Criminal Damage in July, for painting anti-war slogans on the Army Careers Office at the Victoria Centre, in Milton Street, Nottingham.

Thursday’s hearing was about appealing this conviction. Henry's main plan was to point to the 'lawful excuse' provided for in 5.2.B. of the Criminal Damage Act 1971. The idea, as it is contained within a number of pieces of law, is to claim necessity or committing a crime to prevent a greater one. Mr Chris Coverdale from the Campaign to Make Wars History had turned out to assist Henry, but his evidence was disallowed.

Henry says he won't pay the fines and costs because it 'aids and abets' the system he's protesting about.



Aldermaston AWE is blockaded

United Kingdom, 27.10.2008 17:12

Some 300 activists turned out for the Big Blockade of Aldermaston Atomic Weapons Establishment. Organised by Trident Ploughshares and supported by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), Block the Builders and the Aldermaston Women’s Peace Camp, the blockade was an attempt to disrupt work on existing Trident nuclear warheads and the facilities that will enable the development of their successors at Britain’s nuclear weapons research laboratory.

More than 30 people were arrested. Several people mounted a tripod which blocked the A340 for two hours; several others, who were locked together with arm tubes, blockaded the construction gate for five hours. People came from far and wide for the blockade - there were representatives from Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Scotland, Wales, Bradford and Plymouth, as well as a Buddhist monk and nun who walked to Aldermaston from London.

The blockade of Aldermaston comes in the wake of several other campaigns against arms manufacturers in the UK. In Brighton, on 15th October, a mass protest took place against EDO MBM/ITT. Meanwhile, last week in Bristol, a number of protesters mounted a roof-top protest against Raytheon. Two of the protesters stayed on the roof for some 38 hours.

Two Victories for Advocates of Life

United States, 27.10.2008 04:08

On Thursday, the Texas Criminal Court of Appeals stopped the scheduled execution of Bobby Woods because of overwhelming evidence that he is mentally retarded. The following day in Atlanta, a federal appeals court granted a stay to Troy Davis, who was set to be executed on Monday night. Davis's case, which has garnered international attention, will now return to litigation for at least another 25 days.

From Houston IMC: On Saturday, more than a hundred death penalty abolitionists gathered in Houston's Third Ward to march and protest the use of capitol punishment in the State of Texas and everywhere. The march was led by Texas’s newest abolition organization, Kids Against the Death Penalty, formed by the family of Jeff Wood, an innocent man sent to death row under the Law of Parties.

From DC IMC: Davis's stay came just after hundreds of signature demanding from the State Board of Paroles to stop the execution of Troy Davis were gathered on the Howard University campus, and a campaign to boycott Coca Cola and Delta Airlines who make their money down in Georgia was initiated by the Nat Turner Rebellion.

The Indypendent Issue #127: The Rule of Impunity

NYC, 26.10.2008 23:39

Two years after the murder of Brad Will on the streets of Oaxaca, Mexico, justice has still not been served. About a week ago, Mexican authorities arrested Oaxacan activists and charged them in the death of Brad Will. In a IndyBlog post, editor John Tarleton writes, “Will’s family and friends as well as Mexican human rights groups have long denounced the Mexican government’s theory that Will was killed by protesters and contend instead that he was murdered by local paramilitaries who were filmed in the street that day firing their weapons in Will’s direction. Nonetheless, Mexican authorities have refused to pursue any other lines of inquiry. With the second anniversary of Will’s death approaching, it appears as if the Mexican government is determined to use the investigation as a club with which to attack the social movement that Brad Will gave his life to cover.”

John Gibler, a Global Exchange media fellow, has an in-depth investigative piece on the Brad Will murder as the feature story for this issue of the Indypendent. Also in this issue: more analysis of the bailout of the financial industry; coverage of Craig Schley, who is challenging representative Charlie Rangel in a congressional race; and more excellent Election 2008 coverage.

United Kingdom, 26.10.2008 21:40

It is now almost five years since Indymedia London came to life as part of the United Kollectives network of IMC's throughout the UK. Now, in 2008, things have moved on; the reality in the streets is very different from that of 2003, and so there has also been a change in the way people experience the internet.

We are conscious of the need for a social revolution. Everywhere the degradation seems to deepen as our distance from our relation to it widens. We are conscious of the need to engage seriously in a war of appropriation against a society of dispossession, withdrawal, and exhaustion. As with any goal of social transformation, the process of anarchist revolution requires an understanding of the social context we live in, the barriers against class solidarity, and our strategy for getting what we want.

Injustice in Australia: Aboriginal leader found guilty while killer cop walks free

Aotearoa, 26.10.2008 06:40

Last Friday an all white jury found Lex Wotton, an Aboriginal man from Palm Island, guilty of 'rioting with destruction' for his involvement in the 2004 Palm Island uprising. On November 26th 2004 the people of Palm Island set fire to the local police station, court house and police barracks after a pathologist's report claimed that the death of Mulrunji Doomadgee, a 36 year old local, in police custody a week earlier was an 'accident'. Mulrunji died in a police cell, one hour after he had been arrested for being drunk. He suffered massive internal injuries, including a ruptured spleen, four broken ribs and a 'liver that had been 'almost cleaved in two' from a huge compressive force.' The officer who arrested him, Senior Sergeant Chris Hurley, claimed that Mulrunji had fallen on stairs. A coroner's inquest found that Senior Sergeant Chris Hurley was responsible for Mulrunji's death, as the injuries were consistent with a beating. However, a court found Hurley not guilty for manslaughter. He has since been promoted and is an Inspector on the Gold Coast. In comparison Lex Wotton is now facing a life sentence in prison. He is being held in prison until his next court appearance in the Townsville District Court on November 7.

Carousel of Hope Ball signals collapse of settlement-builder Leviev PR strategy

In a stunning reversal, Israeli billionaire and settlement-builder Lev Leviev will not be sponsoring the Children’s Diabetes Foundation’s (CDF) 2008 Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills this Saturday evening. Alexis Stern of Adalah-NY explained that, “The developments with CDF, Oxfam, UNICEF and various stars appear to signal the collapse of Leviev and BluPRint’s cynical public relations strategy. The message is that no amount of deception, branding and PR can make a businesses’ human rights abuses acceptable.”



No More War! 50 Years Later

Rogue Valley, 25.10.2008 20:09

Southern Oregonian Linda Richards is attending graduate school in Corvallis Oregon where she is studying at Oregon State University. Our peace activist friend who has worked so long to end the threat of nuclear war recently wrote an article that appeared in an OSU publication. Learning about her writing we asked Linda if we could post it to the Rogue IMC so that others could see her work. Linda responded:

"thanks for the suggestion of posting my piece, sometimes I feel like the points I am trying to make get lost and I look like a shameless self promoter but what I want is to keep nuclear news in the news, it so easily slips out of view. (the article) was actually much stronger originally but it was edited.... so I wasn't sure it was so cool anymore, but the picture alone makes me happy and is a way for the people who helped me here know I am still doing my peace work, just in a different way..."
