Halloween Protest to Stop ICE

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.10.2008 18:39

This Halloween, Friday, Oct. 31, hundreds of Bay Area youth will gather with community members and families to denounce the atrocities committed against immigrant communities by Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). The action is a response to ICE attacks against immigrant communities in so-called "sanctuary cities" like San Francisco and to a presidential election season that has seen neither major candidate substantively address the issues facing immigrant families.

Spanien erneut wegen Folter am Pranger

Germany, 30.10.2008 18:39

Wieder einmal wurde Spanien vor der UNO-Vollversammlung wegen der ständigen Folter angegriffen ( Völlig unbegreiflich ist für die Folterexperten, dass sich Spanien weiter weigert, sogar die 4-10 Tage, die ein Mensch in völliger Kontaktsperre verbringen muss, weil er nach dem Anti-Terror-Gesetz verhaftet wurde, nicht lückenlos per Video aufgezeichnet wird. Insgesamt forderte der Sonderberichterstatter für Menschenrechte erneut, die Kontaktsperre abzuschaffen, weil sie die Folter erst ermöglicht ( Gestern wurden wieder vier Basken verhaftet, die derzeit durch die Hölle gehen dürften ( Ausnahmegesetze und Sondergerichte ( würden dem Kampf gegen dem Terrorismus nur schaden.

US Activists protest on anniversary of Indymedia journalist's death

United States, 30.10.2008 16:37

On Monday, activists in several cities around the US and the Americas gathered in front of Mexican consulates to call for justice in the case of slain indymedia journalist Brad Will, who was killed in Oaxaca, Mexico on October 27, 2006, while filming the people's uprising. The protests marked the anniversary of Brad's death, as well as the recent arrests of Brad's friends and comrades for his murder, in direct contradiction to forensic evidence, video evidence, eyewitness reports and the Mexican government's own Human Rights Commission report.

Proposition 2 – Great Concept, Horrible Implementation

Boston, 30.10.2008 16:08

As a fervent supporter of marijuana decriminalization, I looked at the actual text of the proposed legislature recently and was horrified by what I saw. Although the proposition delivers on decriminalization, as promised, it appears to open up a new way in which people can be charged and fined with possession of marijuana. With support for marijuana decriminalization gaining in momentum, and the national election less than a week a way, I had relatively high expectations that Massachusetts voters would be able to create some positive change in the state on Tuesday. However, this all changed recently when I read the actual text being introduced.

San Mateo Superior Court Rules Against East Palo Altans Seeking Fair Rents

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.10.2008 14:39

On October 27, San Mateo Superior Court Judge Beth Freeman ruled against East Palo residents seeking affirmation of their city's authority to enforce and implement its own Rent Stabilization Ordinance. Tenants and the City of East Palo Alto have been in a legal dispute with Page Mill Properties/Woodland Park Management since January 2008 over Page Mill's repeated violations of the city's Rent Stabilization Ordinance, raising tenant rents 2 or 3 times in one year totaling raises of 20%, 30%, and even up to 100%.

Anniversary of Assassination of Israel's Minister of Tourism, Rehavam Zeevi

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.10.2008 07:09

On October 17th, seven years ago, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine assassinated Rehavam Zeevi the Israeli minister of tourism. The assassination was carried out in response to Israel's killing of Palestinian leaders, among them Abu Ali Mostafa, the head of the PFLP. Zeevi was the head of the Moledet Party that was advocating the expulsion of all Palestinians from occupied Palestine to Arab nations.

NGO's as the New Agents of Colonialism

Aotearoa, 30.10.2008 06:39

NGO's as the new agents of colonialism The last two decades has seen a dramatic increase of western non governmental organisations (NGOs) working in the global south. The results of this foreign penetration is resulting in greater criticism of the role such organisations have in the struggle for social justice. These big international NGOs or, BINGOs, are increasingly criticised for having foreign, often white "experts", ties to corporate and government money, and not supporting or collaborating in local solutions and resources. This has led some to claim NGOs as being a more public friendly means of implementing colonial policy. This criticism sometimes arises from those within the NGO industrial complex, but mainly it comes from the local population such organisations are supposed to be benefiting. Some examples given in this article are taken from interviews with various campesiños in Ecuador where a couple of specific NGOs are criticized: these specific cases can be compared to more broad practices elsewhere.

Akcje upamiętniajace Brada Willa

Poland, 29.10.2008 15:11

27 października pod meksykańskim konsulatem w Nowym Jorku zorganizowano akcję upamiętniająca Brada willa - dziennikarza nowojorskich Indymediów zamordowanego w Oaxaca 27 pazdziernika 2006 r. Jego mordercy, zarejestrowani na materiale filmowym nakręconym przez Brada, do dziś pozostają bezkarni. Protestujący domagali się od władz Meksyku zaprzestania mataczeń w tej sprawie, uwolnienia więźniow politycznych z Oaxaca i zaprzestania wykorzystywania smierci Bradleya Willa do represjonowania aktywistów społecznych. Protestowali rownież przeciw przyznaniu przez Stany Zjednoczone pomocy finasowej skorumpowanemu meksykańskiemu rządowi.

Spread the Wealth of Wall Street, Big Oil, Tax-Evader Fox!

Boston, 29.10.2008 14:08

The fascist Fox News of Rupert Murdoch has been whipping up a mania and false fear against socialism, Marxism and “spreading the wealth” But it is protecting only its own tax evasion and the speculative profit, predatory lending and price-gouging of Wall Street and Big Oil. Led by rabid fascists Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, Fox News is conjuring up a false phobia and paranoia against socialism and Marxism. Frothing in the mouth, Fox right-wing commentators are spreading the false fear that socialism and Marxism will grab income from the working-class and middle-class.

Skillshare: Radical Botany #7 The Great Harvest

Portland, 29.10.2008 12:08

In the world of plants there is one time a year when all the elements conspire to bring on the harvest. At the time of harvest the plant is at its fullness for essential oils, fragrance, nutritional health and flavor. For most plants when the plant leaf, fruit, nut or root is mature... before the seed is formed, is when it is harvested by humans. There is only one way to know this. Study the plant. Then capture the plant in its prime.
"As you sow, so shall you reap"

There is great harvest going on in Cascadia and on the earth at this time. It is a time when we look at our gardens and wildlands and find food to eat and store away. We are reaping what we have sown.

The seeds of our actions are producing either healthy plants or plants without vitality. The way we humans have treated the earth, is creating either healthy plants or plants that are not regenerating.

Radical Richard Taken To Jail!

Portland, 29.10.2008 12:08

Local activist jailed for smoking.
Radical Richard was cited for "offensive littering" while smoking on the opposite side of the street from Pioneer Square. He put his cigarette out on the ground and was immediately approached by police who announced that they were citing him for "offensive littering". Richard told them that many people put out their cigarettes on the street and that they (the cops) were only citing him because they targeted him as a potentially homeless person. Richard then told the cops that he would obtain a lawyer and fight his case if cited for this infraction. The cops then took him to jail, he spent several hours in Central Precinct. His court date is November 28th.
Richard needs our support, please contact Central Precinct (503)823-0097 and voice your concern about the obvious over handed jailing of a minor infraction offender.

Voter Caging in Northern California?

Consider Florida: The Great Vote Fraud Hoax

United States, 28.10.2008 21:37

Contrary to McCainian claims of major registration fraud, the greatest voter fraud in recent history occurred during the 2000 presidential election where a massive Bush/GOP conspiracy robbed over 50,000 folks in Florida of their right to vote by falsely listing them as felons ineligible to cast ballots. Remembering that George W. Bush won Florida by a mere 534 vote margin in 2000, simple math exposes that GOP disenfranchisement fraud as demonstratively more devastating than some (alleged) fudging on registration forms.

McCainian claims of ACORN actions possibly “destroying the fabric of democracy” are inaccurate, insulting and hypocritical compared to the legacy of GOP voter suppression assaults – directed mostly at minorities – destruction of democracy that McCain doesn’t complain about.

Brighton group Joins Olive Harvest Campaign in Palestine

United Kingdom, 28.10.2008 18:42

A delegation of eight people from Brighton arrived in the Tubas region of occupied Palestine last week. The delegation is part of the project by the Brighton-Tubas Friendship and Solidarity Group. The group's aims are to highlight Israeli war crimes against Palestinians in the region, raise awareness about life under occupation and create practical solidarity links between grassroots organisations in Brighton and Tubas region. Members of the delegation are currently visiting the threatened village of Al Masra to assist them with their olive harvest.

On Tuesday 28th the group was attacked by a group of Israeli settlers who proceeded to steal olives from the farmers the group was accompanying. One of the settlers was the same man who had murdered a teenage boy in the village earlier this year.

United Workers Declare the Harbor a “Human Rights Zone”

Baltimore, 28.10.2008 18:09

In an unprecedented move in Baltimore labor union history, the United Workers declared the Downtown Inner Harbor a “Human Rights Zone.” The organization that last year won a living wage for its workers at Camden Yards announced on Saturday, October 25th at the Light Street Presbyterian Church they were in solidarity with the workers at the largest tourist venue in the city. “After securing the living wage at Camden Yards, we decided to extend and expand the victory to include more low-wage workers in the city,” said Bennie Witherspoon, a leader in the United Workers and cleaner at Camden Yards. “We learned that through talking with workers at the Inner Harbor that they were experiencing many of the same human rights violations that we experienced at the stadium.”

Raynesway Blockaders in Court

United Kingdom, 28.10.2008 17:44

Ten activists arrested following a blockade of the Rolls Royce Raynesway factory in Derby in April were in court last week. Eight were acquitted with two being found guilty. Seven of the eight found not guilty had been locked to concrete blocks outside the facility with the eighth having driven them there. The two found guilty had been locked onto the gates. All had been charged with aggravated trespass, seemingly an error on the CPS' part.

The court case comes shortly before Derby City Council is to hear a planning application from Rolls Royce to develop its site at Raynesway and a new campaign, dubbed Power Through Wind Not Weapons has been launched to coordinate protests against the factory which produces engines for nuclear submarines (which carry Trident missiles). Protests have been held outside the factory monthly, with one taking place immediately prior to the court case.

CCSO and Sandy PD: Another cover-up by the good old boys in blue

Portland, 28.10.2008 17:08

While I am grateful to have the local community newspapers because they have devoted more than just a few words to this issue as the Boregonian did, I must again take exception to the tone and lack of meaningful substance these articles nonetheless show.

A "voluminous," 500+ page report from the Clackamas County sheriff was released last Friday (October 17th) detailing "the sexual habits of a 14-year seasoned deputy who served the Mt. Hood Corridor communities." This is the report on the probe that led to Clackamas County Sheriff's Deputy Brandon Claggett resigning.

One article, the one I will critique here, states that the "report on that probe answered the questions that local residents have been asking..."

Sorry, but I beg to differ.

The report may indeed have answered the questions we've been asking, but I'm sorry, this article on the report does not.

Please help us build a release fund for Jeff to help pay for his education and costs associated with rebuilding his life.
