The Indypendent Issue #128: Spare Change? Post-Election Coverage

NYC, 17.11.2008 01:38

Barack Obama’s election was historic in its own right. But now the challenge for progressives and leftists is to transform the energy that surrounded his candidacy into a change that doesn’t just rely on lofty and inspirational rhetoric. The Indypendent’s first issue after the election takes a hard look at Obama’s stated policies, and concludes that they won’t be enough.

John Tarleton writes, “Barack Obama has inspired millions to believe that change is possible. But, what kind of change? And to whose benefit? Our country and our world are in crisis, and the tepid, incremental reforms Obama has been peddling aren’t going to cut it. It’s time to think outside the box.” See the “Change We Can Really Believe In” link below for the rest of the article.

Also included in this issue: Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are engaging in resistance by the mere act of survival as the Israeli blockade tightens its grip; interviews with veteran progressive journalists Glen Ford and Juan Gonzalez on Bloomberg, New York City, Obama and more; a new installment of the Indy’s sex column the “Macktivist”; and a look at how a member of the Dutch Socialist Party is changing politics in the Netherlands.

Earth, Animal Liberationists Wage War in Mexico City

Portland, 16.11.2008 15:38

received anonymously (translation):

"NOVEMBER 6: INCENDIARY ATTACK AGAINST A FAST FOOD ESTABLISHMENT IN MEXICO CITY (D.F.)

In the evening of Thursday, November 6 we painted various slogans referring to animal liberation on the walls and windows of a Burger King; immediately after, a couple of molotov cocktails were launched at strategic points in this place of capitalism and exploitation.
We claim this action as an act of solidarity with the FRENTE DE LIBERACION ANIMAL DE MEXICO for its strong activity and confrontation.
But it was also in memory of an active warrior for freedom: BARRY HORNE...
This week is already a week of action in his memory.
Fighters like Barry are remembered as they would like to be remembered:
Bringing war without mercy to the exploiters and capitalists.

Against the state and capital .... social war!
For freedom ... Until they fall!

Veterans Direct Action in DC

Portland, 16.11.2008 15:38

On Saturday, November 15, at 8:00 am, at the National Archives Building on Connecticut Ave., eight military veterans and a military mother climbed a 9-foot retaining fence and occupied a ninety-foot high scaffolding to raise two 450 square foot banners stating, "DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION. ARREST BUSH AND CHENEY: WAR CRIMINALS!" and "WE WILL NOT BE SILENT."

The same message will also be displayed at demonstrations in the Los Angeles area on Saturday. Members of Veterans for Peace (VFP) chose the Archives for their nonviolent protest because it is symbolic of their military oath to "defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

In September they occupied the Archives for 24 hours, and plan to stay longer this time. "The offenses of Bush, Cheney, and their accomplices are appalling," said Kim Carlyle, a VFP member and Army veteran. "Their misdeeds have killed or maimed more than a million people - American soldiers, innocent civilian children, women, and men. They have displaced almost five million people, with millions seeking refuge in other countries. Their total disregard for international agreements has severely tarnished the reputation of America in the world. Their unlawful wars have squandered billions of dollars that could have bolstered a troubled economy."



Protest Foreign Nuclear Waste To Hanford

Portland, 16.11.2008 15:38


Global Nuclear Energy Partnership = More Waste to Hanford

Condemned by health and environmental groups across the country, GNEP means foreign nuclear waste imported and "reprocessed" to USA for more plants. The only public meeting in Oregon by DOE about its Global Nuclear Energy Partnership, is in Hood River at 7 PM Tuesday, November 18 at the Hood River Inn, exit 64 from Portland. CARPOOL or take FREE BUS (see below). This is a national issue. We need a big Oregon outcry. 20 years behind on clean-up, Hanford cannot accept more waste!!!

In the dying throes of the Bush administration, one last environmental disaster is being foisted on the public. With GNEP, Hanford Nuclear Reservation would get a lot more nuclear waste (both from within and outside the country) and a dirty nuclear waste 'reprocessing' plant.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Attend the meeting at 7 PM Tuesday November 18 at Hood River Inn, Hood River and let DOE know a lot of people do not want GNEP.
  • CARPOOL TO HOOD RIVER INN: Going East on I 84, take Exit 64, then take a left at the bottom of the ramp and take the first right (after the westbound off-ramp) into the Inn's entry drive. Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 East Marina Way, Hood River, OR 97031, TOLL FREE: 800-828-7873, PHONE: 541-386-2200 to locate

Y el águila se hizo gallina

Canarias, 16.11.2008 00:09

"Los acuerdos de Madrid no han transferido la soberanía del Sáhara Occidental ni han otorgado a ninguno de los firmantes el status de potencia administradora, status que España no puede transferir unilateralmente"
Resolución ONU S/2002/161

El ejercicio de falsificación histórica empezó con la firma de los acuerdos de Madrid hace 33 años. Todo se precipitó cuándo el Tribunal Internacional de La Haya hizo público su informe el 16 de Octubre de 1975, el párrafo esencial dice textualmente:

"La conclusión del Tribunal es que los materiales y la información que le han sido presentados no establecen nigún lazo de soberanía territorial entre el territorio del Sáhara Occidental y el reino de Marruecos o el complejo mauritano. Así pues, el Tribunal no ha encontrado lazos jurídicos de tal naturaleza[…]que modificaran la descolonización del Sáhara Occidental y en particular el principio de autodeterminación a través de la libre y genuina expresión de la voluntad de los pueblos del territorio."

Horas después Hassan II ejecutaba el plan de Henry Kissinger y manipulaba el informe del Tribunal Internacional en un discurso por televisión dónde convocaba a la invasión del Sáhara Occidental. El Sáhara era víctima de una cadena de mentiras. Estados Unidos engañaba a Madrid ayudando en secreto a Marruecos a preparar la invasión. Madrid engañaba a la ONU, y a su propio ejército negociando en secreto con Marruecos la entrega del territorio a los marroquíes. Y los militares de El Aaiún engañaban a los saharauis adornando la postura oficial de Madrid.

El Sáhara quedó sentenciado en dos días, entre el 12 y el 14 de Noviembre, el ministro de asuntos exteriores español, Pedro Cortina, presentó la declaración de principios que Marruecos aceptó íntegramente (los representantes de Mauritania eran la comparsa de los marroquíes) , salvo el punto 3 del texto, que señalaba que la voluntad del pueblo saharaui sería respetada y manifestada a través de un referéndum, obligando a cambiarlo por "Será respetada la opinión del pueblo saharaui a través de la Yemaá" (presidida por el marroquí Jatri uld Said uld Yumani). A esta declaración así "pactada" la acompañaban tres actas anejas que recogían los aspectos económicos de la operación, dónde se enumeraban jugosos beneficios para lxs pescadorxs españolxs, que nunca llegaron a ser realidad, lo que sí fué real fué el regalo a Marruecos del 65 por ciento de las acciones de la compañía Fos Bucrá por menos de 35 millones de euros que le hizo el entonces ministro de Industria español, Alfonso Álvarez de Miranda, casualmente vicepresidente de Fos Bucrá hasta 1988.

El despojo continúa, la ocupación asfixia a la población saharaui en los territorios ocupados, la población de los campamentos sufre los recortes del programa de alimentos, 16 años de guerra contra el invasor, 17 años de lucha pacífica, y el referéndum no llega.

Mientras, las mentiras sostienen lo insostenible, el muro se refuerza, el ejército se rearma, y las organizaciones de Derechos Humanos siguen sin poder acceder a los territorios ocupados, el 13 de Octubre se reunió por séptima vez el consejo de asociación Unión Europea - Marruecos. La transcripción de la posterior rueda de prensa deja claro que puede que se firme en el 2009, que todavía no se ha concretado exactamente la dimensión completa de los acuerdos, y que a siete meses de las elecciones europeas lo celebrado por Marruecos era claramente otra ceremonia de confusión del Majzén para que no se le adelanten, como hizo Estados Unidos en su acuerdo de libre comercio con Marruecos firmado en 2004, excluyendo específicamente el territorio del Sáhara Occidental del acuerdo.

Toda la corte del rey ha proclamado el éxito de la firma del "estatuto avanzado" entre la Unión Europea y Marruecos en un delirio culminado con el discurso por el tercer aniversario de la invasión del Sáhara Occidental, repitiendo punto por punto cada una de las mentiras refrendadas por los acuerdos con los humanitarios y ultrademocráticos paises de la UE.

El "estatuto avanzado" implica tener una relación que no es la de un estado miembro de la UE, pero es más importante que la que tienen los "selectos" estados que mantienen un acuerdo de asociación. En otras palabras: el "estatuto avanzado" implica tener una relación privilegiada con la UE - incluyendo valiosísimos negocios explotando los recursos naturales, por ejemplo … sin tener que someterse a sus engorrosas exigencias en materia de democracia, respeto del Derecho y derechos humanos.

Marruecos está ocupando ilegalmente y por la fuerza militar y la represión policial el Sáhara Occidental. Son númerosas las resoluciones de la ONU que exigen a Marruecos la salida de un territorio que no es suyo. Son numerosos los llamamientos para que se respeten los derechos de los saharauis y el gobierno marroquí hace oidos sordos. Marruecos incumple sistemáticamente la legalidad internacional y las resoluciones de la ONU con el Sáhara. Pero a la mayoría de lxs ultrademócratas europexs parece que o no están bien informadxs o no se sienten aludidos si hay dinero a sacar.

Mass Antifascist Demonstration in Madrid Remembering Carlos Palomino

United Kingdom, 14.11.2008 19:39

More than 2000 people demonstrated in Madrid on Tuesday 11th November in solidarity, remembrance and homage to Carlos Palomino, the antifa activist murdered exactly one year ago by a far right member of the spanish army. The demonstration "Carlos, One Year Without You" marked the first anniversary of the 11th of November 2007, when Carlos Javier Palomino, a 16 year old active antifascist in the Madrid circles, died from the stab wounds caused by the fascist Josué Estébanez de la Hija.

A series of remembrance protests occurred throughout Spain, being Madrid where the biggest and most emotive one took place. As one of the banners in front of the demonstration read: "The best homage is to carry on with the struggle".

Portland, 14.11.2008 17:39

This moment marks the time 90 years ago when the guns ceased firing on the Western Front. Soldiers on both sides hesitated...wondering if it were really true. After four years of trying to kill each other - leaving 40 million dead - all of a sudden, the heads of state decided they'd had enough. Slowly, cautiously, the French "poilus"...the English "tommies"...the American "doughboys"...and the German "fritzes...huns...krauts" crawled out of their trenches. They walked across no-man's-land and greeted their opponents. They shook hands. They traded tobacco. It was over.

VIDEO: Stop The WOPR Tree Sit stands but challenged by police / Communique

Portland, 14.11.2008 17:39

After a successful and safe first day, state police asked that tree sitter Jasmine Zimmer-Stucky come down. The group's police liaison explained that descending in the dark could be dangerous. The officer left, but is expected to return tomorrow and make the same request. The group believes that it is currently not operating in violation of any laws. Before this interaction, the group has had a successful day with many passers by giving words of encouragement, supplies and positive feed back.

Cascadia Rising Tide hopes the governor will reject the WOPR in favor of a more sustainable forest economy that prevents clear cutting, stops logging in native forest, and would not decrease the protections outlined in the North West Forest Plan. The group is part of a larger coalition called WOPR and Beyond. The group is holding a rally to convince governor Kulongoski not to accept the BLM's proposal.
