Police Harassment of Worcester's Latino Livery Taxis Subsides - Questions Remain

United States, 04.12.2008 04:37

The on-again, off-again harassment of Worcester’s livery taxis appears to have subsided, lessening frustration and anger within Worcester’s Latino community.

Community members and taxi drivers have reported harassment of patrons and drivers and multiple civil rights violations. On multiple occasions the Worcester Police Department has shut-down business completely, sending drivers home and leaving waiting patrons needing rides to doctors’ appointments and markets stranded.

The targeting of the taxis is another attack against Latino small business owners in Worcester where these businesses are primarily comprised of Ecuadoran and Dominican owners and drivers.

Remembering a Media Pioneer: Greg Carr

Rogue Valley, 04.12.2008 02:10

In late October, Greg Carr's body was found in the doorway of a Sacramento muffler shop. Greg had been living on the streets of Sacramento for most of a decade and had been a watchdog for Sacramento's homeless population. This is my reaction to hearing about the last years of his life and of his death.

W Toruniu po dwuletniej przerwie ruszyła inicjatywa Food not Bombs

W Toruniu przy dworcu Miasto w niedzielę 30.11.08 o godz. 15:00 odbyła się trzecia z kolei cotygodniowa akcja rozdawania ciepłych wegańskich posiłków ludziom biednym, bezdomnym i bezrobotnym. Rozdano około trzydzieści porcji. Akcje te odbywać się będą cyklicznie co niedziele przy dworcu Miasto o godz. 15:00.

Akcji tej towarzyszy przekaz antyrządowy i antywojenny, którego ideom jest pokazanie, że kiedy władza wydaje ogromne pieniądze na zbrojenia i wojny, wielu ludzi na całym świecie umiera z głodu.

Jedzenie Zamiast Bomb, powstało w latach 80. XX wieku z inicjatywy kilkunastu działaczy antywojennych i anarchistycznych w Cambridge, aktualnie akcja odbywa się regularnie w wielu miastach całego świata. W Polsce, między innymi w Gdańsku, Gdyni, Warszawie, Łod…

Crisis in Thailand - a Marxist view

Aotearoa, 04.12.2008 00:10

Thailand is currently in crisis, with a deformed expression of class struggle occurring between one side that wears yellow shirts and another that wears red. How can we make sense of this situation, and what is the way forward for those of us interested in the interests of the poor and working class? John Moore, formerly a resident in Thailand, and now a Workers Party activist, argues that the Thai working class is a mass force that has yet to roar, but that the small radical element amongst them shouldn’t ‘give up the bullet for the ballot’ to reform Thai society through the Thai capitalist state.

worker coop needs support in Port Townsend

Portland, 03.12.2008 18:38

The owner of a popular coffee house and bakery suddenly shut the doors of the business leaving a group of people without jobs. Those workers and some past employess are now trying to re-open the business as a worker-owned coop.

The workers have a plan to make this coffee house become a place that people can use for community organizing as well as offering bake goods and coffee and tea. First they need to raise the money to ask the bank and past owner to let them take over the loan. The workers need capital and they are asking the community and past customers to help them raise that money.

Climate Activists Invade DC Offices of Environmental Defense

Portland, 03.12.2008 18:38

As the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change opened today in Poznan, Poland, a group of grassroots climate activists came to the Washington DC office of Environmental Defense to voice some complaints about their role in the shaping US proposals at the negotiations. ED is one of the largest environmental organizations in the world and has been central in promoting the approach of carbon trading as a solution to climate change, a policy which has been publicly endorsed by Obama.

Dr. Rachel Smolker of Global Justice Ecology Project read a statement, which said in part, "My father was one of the founders of this organization, which sadly I am now ashamed of. So far they have utterly failed, serving only to provide huge profits to the world's most polluting industries. Instead of protecting the environment, ED now seems primarily concerned with protecting corporate bottom lines. I can hear my father rolling over in his grave."

The activists rearranged furniture in the office, illustrating how marketing carbon is "like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic." Others held signs reading "Keep the cap, ditch the trade" and "Carbon trading is an environmental offense."

Police Claim Filming Them is 'Violation of Patriot Act', Arrest Fois Gras Protestors

DC, 02.12.2008 22:10

On Saturday, November 29, approximately 7:00 pm, I was falsely arrested for “filming police officers, which is illegal under the Patriot Act,” according to the cop who arrested me. They were trying to take my boyfriend, Adam Ortberg, into custody to be (wrongly) identified as a protester who allegedly assaulted someone, and I was trying to film the impending confrontation and possible arrest with my camera phone.

From weapons to wars to refugees

United Kingdom, 02.12.2008 17:09

On Saturday, a lively and well attended demonstration and die in in the centre of Nottingham brought two successful local campaigns together. Shut Down H&K, campaigners against Nottingham's arms dealers joined hands with No Borders Nottingham, who fight for migrant rights, to come 'full circle'. The demonstration emphasised the links between guns sold in the UK, armed conflicts abroad and the refugees that flee these wars to come to Britain looking for asylum.

The demonstrators gave out 2000 fliers to Christmas shoppers making them aware of the whereabouts of Heckler & Koch's premises in Lenton and the death and destruction their merchandise causes. Refugees and asylum seekers from many countries ravaged by the effects of small arms were there to support the demo. Protesters held a die in on the cold pavements, undeterred by the over the top police surveillance. Many members of the public were shocked to hear about the arms dealers in their neighbourhood.

Climate Global Day of Action: Auckland demonstration against Kwila

Aotearoa, 02.12.2008 02:10

"Western demand for kwila is not only killing the forests, it is also killing our people. The forest is seen as our mother, which provides us with food, water and shelter - and when that is taken away, our people lose everything." Saturday 06 December 2008 13:00pm - 15:00pm Design Warehouse 136 Fanshawe Street Auckland email aspaceinside (at) gmail.com for more info. This summer a rag-tag bunch of activists will attempt to impose a people's ban on the selling of Kwila in Auckland City, a mostly illegally logged rainforest hardwood sold across the Western world as outdoor furniture or decking timber. We are launching our campaign on Saturday December 6th, a Global Day of Action on Climate Change. We will be holding a protest outside Design Warehouse, 136 Fanshawe Street, a major seller of Kwila Furniture. Come along and be part of the global movement against climate change and ecological destruction. [More]

Wie geht's weiter mit Indymedia?

Germany, 01.12.2008 17:11

Wie das globale Inndymedia-Netzwerk ("IMCN") ist auch das Indymedia Center ("IMC") Germany nicht mehr das jüngste Projekt - in den sieben Jahren seitdem die Website als nach wie vor wichtigster Medienkanal von IMC Germany online ging hat sich vor allem das Internet stark gewandelt, Indymedia aber kaum. Angetreten war IMC Germany unter anderem mit dem als wichtig empfundenen Ziel, jeder und jedem eine non-kommerzielle Plattform zu bieten um Nachrichten verbreiten zu können. Zwar wurde dieses Ziel schnell erreicht und es ist auch heute noch ein Dienst den Indymedia Germany bietet, aber das Netz selbst hat sich seitdem extrem verändert und es wird höchste Zeit zu evaluieren ob sich Indymedia vor diesem Hintergrund nicht auch verändern sollte, und wenn ja, wie.

But never in the years that I was involved in massive demonstrations against the corporate control over globalization, did I witness anyone getting trampled or ignored when they had been hurt."
