This Veterans Day, U.S. Soldiers Say 'Stop the War'
On Monday, Nov. 10, 2008, 15 activists staged a “Die In” at the U.S. Justice Department in Washington, D.C. The protest action, which began at 12 noon, on the sidewalk, centered around a moral and legal demand, grounded in the Federal Criminal Laws, the U.S. Constitution, the Geneva Convention, the Natural and International Law, that President George W. Bush and V.P. Dick Cheney should be “indicted for War Crimes and Murder.” The demonstration was organized by the “National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance,” (NCNR).

On 15 November, the 20 richest nations will convene in Washington DC to try to put the financial meltdown behind them and repair the international capitalist system. Protests are planned in the streets of Washington against capitalism. On the same day, the biggest Swiss trade unions, along with a coalition of left-wing groups, are moblising against the government's bailout of the United Bank of Switzerland. "Capitalism has existed for a few centuries and has again reached a historic point. Similar crisis in the last century ended in two world wars with millions dead. War as a way out of this crisis has once again come into the centre of capitalist politics. Capitalism, along with the bourgeois state, are to be abolished!"
El pr�ximo s�bado 15 de noviembre, convocados por George Bush, se reunir�n los dirigentes de los pa�ses m�s poderosos del planeta junto con los l�deres de los pa�ses denominados emergentes para seg�n sus propias palabras "refundar el capitalismo". Despu�s de a�os donde los capitalistas han engordado sus bolsillos con ingentes beneficios a costa del pueblo y construyendo una econom�a irreal y la crisis ha descendido sobre los mercados (por que el modelo sigue ahogando a l@s de siempre), los gobiernos han decido que sean los estados los que paguen sus excesos. El poder nos vende esta reuni�n como una rectificaci�n del capitalismo para que este sea m�s bondadoso con las masas populares que sufren sus consecuencias. Pero nos tememos que s�lo se trata de cambiar algo para que todo siga igual. M�s control dicen, pero sin tomar ninguna medida en contra de la econom�a de la especulaci�n, de las subprime y de los para�sos fiscales. Para responder a los poderosos y mostrar la indignaci�n que supone el tener que pagar los excesos de unos pocos, se han convocado concentraciones en muchas ciudades del mundo. Lo que surgi� como una convocatoria an�nima ha sido recogido por numerosas organizaciones (Plataforma contra el BBVA, G8 akatu!!) y en Hego Euskal Herria se han realizado las siguientes convocatorias para este d�a 15 de noviembre: Como dec�a aquella convocatoria original: "Durante a�os se han forrado y ahora anuncian despidos, recortes salariales, cierres de empresas, aparcar el protocolo de Kioto... Privatizan los beneficios y socializan las p�rdidas. �Se creen que somos tontxs? �Lo vamos a permitir?". Art�culos interesantes: |Alfredo Perez Esquivel: De la econom�a de la nada, a la ruina de todos|, |Santiago Alba Rico: La superioridad del capitalismo|, |Ignacio Ramonet: Impacto global|, |�ric Toussaint: Alternativas: el retorno|.

Anniversary of Nigerian executions marked in Dubli ...
On November 4th, 2008, California voters passed Proposition 2 by a 63% to 36% margin. The new "Standards for Confining Farm Animals" statute phases out some of the most restrictive confinement systems used by factory farms — gestation crates for breeding pigs, veal crates for calves, and battery cages for egg laying hens — affecting 20 million farm animals in the state by granting them space to stand up, stretch their limbs, turn around and lie down comfortably.
A self righteous resident of Columbia County had two anti-immigrant measures added to the ballot out here. One would have required signs proclaiming Columbia County to be an "illegal worker-free zone." That one failed, thank goodness. A second measure, however, mandates a fine of $10,000 for anyone who hires a so-called "illegal alien." Apparently, it could also mandate that the sheriff's office check people's papers. This one passed.
We should begin to vision the world we want to live and work hard and fast to create it while there is still time. Soon the haters and naysayors will be trying to sap every bit of will, vision and strength we have. The time is now. Using the Indymedia network each progressive/radical community can begin this proces. Join me now if you will.
This is the moment where we will see what Obama really stands for. it is the big test before being the president. I believe if we really wish to see change we need to push this administration towards the "left" in e-mails, phone calls, letters and rallies. he claims he wants to hear our voice... then make it loud and clear that we do not support corporatism. We do not want a Georgie Bush or a Billy Clinton in power ever again. After he is sworn in I believe the biggest test as president is to push an investigation and arrest of the war criminals currently in office.
I went to the first meeting for the "Human Rights Commission" here in Portland on November 5th 2008[.] It was two hours and there was no microphone [.] I recorded 3 videos that afternoon(one short one and two longer ones) [.] The sound quality is rated poor / fair.

"We're not trying to say you can't come in, but you can't come in," sez Obama campaign flunkie; McCain flunkie's excuse is bullshit, but certain and consistent bullshit Here we all are on Nov 4th 2008, the Election That Will Change The World, or so they say. Now, there are already a good many of our Indymedia readers and contributors who are way hip to the fact that one politician is not much different from the next, so those of you who know my work know that I don't cover too much of the mainstream political party circus. But, I try to keep my mind open with the thoughts of how maybe, just maybe the fact that there is an African American on the presidential ballot would make a difference to those of us who take pride in not following like soldiers in the mainstream…
We have seen glimpses of another way to live and it's fucking beautiful. Barack Obama has run his entire campaign on hope and a promise of change. But there's only so much that one can do within this system. No president can save us—the political structure in the United States was carefully constructed to protect the interests of a privileged few. This whole rotten system needs to be razed so our hopes can grow from the ruins.

W piątek, 7 listopada włoscy studenci po raz kolejny zrezygnowali z udziału w zajęciach i wyszli na ulice. Obietnica ministra Gelminiego odpowiedzialnego za reformę edukacji i ograniczenia wydatków na szkolnictwo i naukę, dotycząca przyznania dodatkowych pieniędzy uczelniom i sudentom "o odpowiednich zasługach", nie przekonała protestujących - mobilizacja strajowa trwa nadal pod hasłami "Żadnych cięć w edukacji, żadnej prywatyzacji, nie zamierzamy płacic za wasz kryzys!". Wg różnych źródeł, przedwczoraj na ulice Rzymu wyszło protestować w tej sprawie od 25 tys. do 30 tys. osób.
