Basta de persecución política! Paremos la detención del David de la Fornal de Vilafranca

Desde la madrugada del 6 de enero, día de la detención del David de la Fornal, las muestras de apoyo han sido numerosas: adhesiones individuales y colectivas, comunicados de apoyo, escritos enviados a la prensa, paradas informativas, actos públicos y conferencias, dos ruedas de prensa, una manifestación... A pesar de las muestras de solidaridad, la jueza Isabel Gallardo mantiene la orden de ingreso en prision. Por eso, la mobilización popular tiene que seguir com más intensidad que nunca.

LNG Rally in Salem

Rogue Valley, 15.01.2009 06:04

This past Tuesday concerned citizens from Southern Oregon joined in a statewide rally on the steps of the Oregon Capitol to tell the Governor and our state legislatures to say “No to LNG ”. Approximately 400 Oregon residents from all walks of life from across the state gathered for a rally which was part of a citizen’s renewable energy day at the Oregon Capitol. A group of farmers brought a collection of tractors and horse trailers to represent their presence at the rally. These trackers were parked across the street from the capitol steps with signs voicing their opposition to LNG as a visual statement of who will be impacted by the terminals if they are allowed to be brought into Oregon. The salmon were also seen “swimming” throughout the crowds at the rally to show their opposition to LNG.

As well as a rally, which lasted for about 2 hours, there were workshops throughout the day and in the afternoon groups and citizens had the opportunity to speak with legislative staff from their districts about their concerns about LNG terminals being allowed to be developed in Oregon.

Editorial Cartoon: Nerobama – Who Says He Hasn't Spoken Up About Gaza?

DC, 15.01.2009 03:01

So, I'm on the street shooting these demos where people are demanding that Emperor-Elect Timberlake "say something" about the Israeli rape of Gaza, as if with enough pressure – if you call sign-waving and delivering white roses "pressure" – he'll suddenly have a Eureka Moment and go on TV and "do the right thing". Now, I often like to joke around with my friends about how most Americans' long-term memories don't go back past the last episode of "Desperate Housewives", but lately it seems to be the dead-assed truth, and that includes The Movement™. Anyone who thinks that Obama actually has substantially different ideas about the situation that he's just waiting to express until he's officially El Presidente has obviously already forgotten his notorious wet, sloppy blowjob of a speech he delivered to last year's AIPAC Convention shortly after becoming the presumptive (spit) Donkeycratic Party nominee for Maximum Leader.

Hope and Change for Low-Wage Workers

Boston, 14.01.2009 17:09

On March 18, 1968, two weeks before his murder, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. told striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tenn., "It is criminal to have people working on a full-time basis getting part-time income." He said, "A living wage should be the right of all working Americans." What would Dr. King have thought of a $6.55 federal minimum wage in 2009, when the 1968 minimum wage is worth about $10 in today’s dollars? What would he have made of a minimum wage that is less adequate for the basic necessities of life than it was 40 years ago?

&quot; HAMAS &quot; The Untold Truth

Rogue Valley, 14.01.2009 05:11

I've been watching the media very closely these days, and a very disturbing phenomena has been emerging. The Media War, The Israeli government has discovered that the Palestinians have been using the internet to inform people and tell the real story that has been distorted by the Israeli propaganda machine....

The truth of the matter is that, Hamas is not a terrorist organization nor that Hamas was the aggressor in any of the Israeli Palestinian confrontations.--Kamal Hassan

Bialoruś: wezwanie do akcji pw budowie elektrowni atomowej

Poland, 13.01.2009 12:40

Poniżej apel o międzynarodowy dzień solidarności z ruchem antyatomowym na Białorusi:
-----

Kilka lat temu władze Białorusi, wbrew zdrowemu rozsądkowi i interesowi mieszkańców kraju, podjęły decyzję o budowie na terenie kraju elektrowni jądrowej. Decyzję tą wsparło aktywnie miedzynarodowe lobby jadrowe. Realizacją projektu ma się zająć rosyjska korporacja Rosatom. Budowa będzie prowadzona w pólnocno-zachodniej Białorusi, w rejonie aktywnym sejsmicznie, kilkadziesiąt kilometrów od jeziora Narocz - największego jeziora na Białorusi. Koszty projektu to ponad 4 miliardy dolarów, które możnaby przeznaczyć na rozwój alternatywnych źródeł energii

According to him, the Abbas administration is all for this. Of course, he left out the parts about massacring civilians, experimenting with high density munitions that more effectively dismember human bodies, using white phosphorous like napalm, not to mention killing medical workers and preventing their access to civilian victims, and also targeting United Nations sites full of civilians with massive and deadly force…More Click here for streaming video: | Ephraim Sneh |

Police Shine Spotlight On Joe Anybody Camera

Portland, 13.01.2009 03:09

While filming under the bridge, the police attempt to block my view
(PS I was also informed a police sweep would be happening on Saturday night)
I went to see if the homeless people under the Burnside Bridge in Portland Oregon were getting hassled for being "homeless" I seen a man getting arrested so I started filming from 50 yards away. As I filmed one officer in a car started shining his spot light to block me from filming. What I don't like is I just won a tort claim against the city police for taking my camera and for ticketing me for "filming them" ... I won my case  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2008/12/383132.shtml ... I can film... anyone can film the police in public[.] I also won 100 bucks ... a small fee that I attached to say I want policy change not money. One month latter the police are trying to block me again. I don't like this nor think it is appropriate. In good faith I didn't sue them for big dollars ...and yet they still play their "cover up games" ... This begs the question just what "Are the Portland Police Trying to Hide?" This was filmed on 1.9.09. I was informed by people under the bridge that the police that arrested the man, said they would be back tomorrow 1.10.09 to "sweep the homeless" from under the bridge...

Support Publicly Financed Elections

Portland, 13.01.2009 03:09

The city Auditor is resigning in May. This position is a powerful position that is in charge of auditing (or ignoring) city projects and runs the Independent Police Review. The powers that be want a special election held that is in 4 months. This is bad as most people who can qualify for auditor will be busy doing Taxes and not able to run. Also, this is not enough time for people to qualify for Public Financing. Which leaves an auditor who is elected by the PDC, business and the Portland Police Union. If you can please attend the following meeting and support Portland Publicly Financed Elections by asking that the election happen in September (this will give time for good progressive people to run for this office).
