No case to answer after Notts E.On protest

United Kingdom, 18.01.2009 21:09

Two environmentalists, arrested following a blockade of E.On's Nottingham offices, had the case against them dismissed on Wednesday. The case collapsed after it emerged that the prosecution had offered no evidence to support the charge of aggravated trespass. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) were found to have been negligent in their administration of the case and were ordered to pay the defence's costs.

The two joined around 30 protesters from Eastside Climate Action in an action against the energy giant, as part of a 'Fossil Fools' protest on 1st April, 2008. They locked themselves to the doors of the offices. The police made a verbal promise to allow them to leave without charges if they agreed to removed the blockade by 10am. They unlocked and were immediately arrested.

In a statement on the day of the action, Eastside Climate Action said: "We are here to tell E-on that ... the only real solution to climate change is to keep fossil fuels in the ground. Coal is the dirtiest Fossil Fool and to build new coal power stations in the face of climate change is collective suicide."

Olympia, WA: Torch Lit March Against Police

Portland, 18.01.2009 19:09

Upwards of 45 people gathered across the street from the celebration of the re-opening of the Timberland Library to discuss what to do about the recent murders committed by police and how we can better show solidarity with the rebels in Greece and Oakland.

Those in the crowd looked around, reassured each other and then surged toward the police station, pelting it with stones and torches and then dispersed into the surrounding neighborhood.

3 people were arrested, 10 detained. One of the arrested was stopped with a loaded handgun pointing at his face. The 3 were later released on bail and had received misdemeanor charges. As for the people who ditched their bikes to get away, the police took them for "evidence" and they will most likely not be returned.

Zimbabwe's Future Under a New U.S. Administration?

Boston, 18.01.2009 16:09

Bob Herbert the African-American New York Times columnist has just published a column in the New York Times called "Zimbabwe" in which he claims that Zimbabwe it is in a total mess and that it's all the president of Zimbabwe's fault. The president of Zimbabwe is of course Robert Mugabe and he has been president from the very beginning of the creation of the state of Zimbabwe out of what was a very brief but successful political uprising of the overwhelming majority black population of Rhodesia against the colonial British white settlers who stole the country, controlled the economy and owned practically all the farmland.

Ungar Fur's Demo Wrap Up. 1/16/09

Portland, 18.01.2009 08:08

The demonstration started at 1 pm as always. The weather was on our side today, providing lots of sun and lots of people walking around SW portland. Throughout the day we had a lot of passing pedestrians stop and ask about why we were outside of Ungar Fur's (SW 12th and Yamhill). We would then give them literature about the fur industry and let them know about how many animals in the fur trade have their necks broken, have their skulls stomped on, and eventually, have their skin ripped off while they are still conscious and breathing. This disgusted the curious citizens of portland. Some of them even went in to tell Ungar Fur's what they thought about their business.

We are here to let the public know about how cruel and inhumane the fur industry is. we are also here to let Ungar Fur's know that we will never back down, until they stop the killing.

EVERY FUCKING FRIDAY. 1 pm. SW 12th & Yamhill.

The Indypendent Issue 130: The Road Forward

NYC, 18.01.2009 00:09

The Indypendent looks ahead to the historic inauguration of Barack Obama in our latest issue, asking tough questions about what is to come in the months ahead as Obama takes office. Topics covered include a look at how the expansion of executive power will pose a challenge to Obama; more analysis on the financial crisis; the Employee Free Choice Act and labor’s push for it; and much more. See below for the rest!

WHAT A DIFFERENCE EIGHT YEARS CAN MAKE:

“Obama’s presidency has to be a starting point, not a final destination, for the diverse movements that carried him to the White House.

On Jan. 20, 2001, tens of thousands of demonstrators gathered in the freezing rain to protest George W. Bush’s takeover of the White House following his theft of the 2000 election and to pelt his motorcade with rotten fruit.

This year, millions of people are expected to flock to Washington, D.C., to celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama.

Still, much remains unchanged.

Whether the president is a conservative Texas oilman or a brilliant young African-American lawyer from Hawaii, Harvard and the South Side of Chicago, power in this country is still centered in big business and the Pentagon. And our nation’s governing philosophy—a fervent belief in free-market economics, global empire and the right to use military force anywhere in the world — remains rooted in decades of bipartisan policymaking.

For Obama’s presidency to make a decisive break with the failures of the past, Inauguration Day has to be a starting point, not a final destination for the diverse movements that carried him to the White House. Only a ceaseless clamor from visionary, broad-based mass movements will push our new president to take the sort of genuinely progressive positions that can truly solve the multiple crises we face.

“We are the ones we have been waiting for,” as Obama was fond of telling his supporters during the early part of last year’s campaign.

Indeed.”—The Indypendent Staff

Forest Fields Residents Defeat Superstore

United Kingdom, 16.01.2009 22:09

Forest Field residents appear to have defeated plans to build a major food store in the area. The day after a well-attended public meeting called by the Forest Fields Improvement Association on Monday 12th January, it was revealed that the proposal had been withdrawn.

There were concerns expressed that the proposal threatened the viability of well established, community-led businesses in the neighbourhood. A similar trend has been seen across much of the country with the growth of large supermarkets often to the detriment of the local area.

Operation overkill at the Northern Climate Rush

United Kingdom, 16.01.2009 17:39

On Monday 12th Jan 2009 between 1830 and 2100, free expression occurred
at terminal three of Manchester International Airport. A protest was held by Climate Rush in a designated zone away from all passengers and prying eyes with a cordon for the press and some police horses.

Approximately one hundred protesters descended decorously to make their
views on airport expansion known. Edwardian dress was the order of the day,and we didn't disappoint. Top hats and tails, corsets, shawls and a street urchin all made an appearance.

Eagle Pt. Teachers/Staff Standup for FAIRNESS

Rogue Valley, 16.01.2009 05:40

1/14/08--HUGE RALLY IN EAGLE POINT, OREGON
A disrespectful school board gets an ear full of solidarity

This report is in three parts:
1) Introduction
2) Photos of the event
3) Messages from Teachers & Staff that were delivered to the School Board.

INTRODUCTION
The room was packed, in fact over-packed. The Fire Department showed up with fire code concerns, however by that time the meeting was nearly over. It was not the Fire Dept. but the School Board who called the meeting short. Looking at his watch (see very last photo) Board Chair Jonathan Bilden denied the request of 5 more minutes for the teacher/staff presentations and he kicked the teachers and staff out of the room.

In the Eagle Point School District the teachers and staff are all in one union, the Oregon Education Association, and they all speak with one voice.

At the meeting Teachers and Staff made brief presentations to the District's School Board. For those in attendance there was no doubt about the dedication of this workforce in spite of the lack of respect from the School Board and from Administrators who have already got their pay raise. Faculty & Staff are only asking for the same pay raise as the Administrators, and the words from an early presenter really set the tone for the evening when a teacher said: "This is like a family at dinner time when the parents eat first."

Unfortunately (but not a big surprise) press coverage of this HUGE event was horrible. One local TV station did cover the meeting, but that was it. And there was NO newspaper ink in the Medford Mail Tribune. What a disservice! Its no wonder that newspapers are in such steep decline. They don't report news anymore. That is why the Rogue IMC is proud to bring you this report.

"Thanks again for coming out and supporting us. I think we are energized again" were the words of grade school teacher Debbie Herzog in reference to the support from Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice members.

Activists Shut Down Israeli Consulates in California

United States, 16.01.2009 01:07

LOS ANGELES January 14, 2009 — Early this morning, in a historic first in Los Angeles, Jewish activists chained themselves to the entrance of the Israeli Consulate and blocked the driveway to the parking structure, blocking all traffic in and out of the building. "We sent a clear message to the world that LA Jews are part of the global majority in opposition to the Israeli siege of Gaza," said Lenny Potash a 72-year old protester who was cuffed to eight other activists, blocking the driveway to the consulate. The activists were joined by 50 other supporters and who chanted "LA Jews say, End the Siege of Gaza" and "Not in Our Name! We will Not be Silent!" Protesters also held up signs reading "Israeli Consulate: Closed for War Crimes."

LNG Opponents Will Challenge FERC Decision in Federal Court

Portland, 15.01.2009 21:09

Astoria, OR - Two days after staging a massive rally against LNG in Oregon, opponents of the Bradwood LNG terminal vowed to challenge FERC in federal court after the commission rejected their request for reconsideration of the terminal's approval.

Without discussion, the five-member commission dismissed challenges from the states of Oregon and Washington, as well as Columbia River Treaty Tribes and Columbia Riverkeeper.

Brett VandenHeuvel, executive director of Columbia Riverkeeper, blasted FERC's decision, "FERC's decision is clearly illegal and we will challenge it in federal court. Not only Riverkeeper and allies, but also the states of Oregon and Washington, and the Columbia River tribes all warned FERC that we would fight its illegal approval. I expect we will succeed on appeal."



As Politicians Flounder, International Pressure Continues for Ceasefire in Gaza

United States, 15.01.2009 21:07

On January 10, protests in several cities were organized against Israel's offensive in Gaza as part of a World Day of Action, and actions have continued since, including the blockades and occupations of consulates [1], [2]). Voices of resistance include Jewish, Palestinian, and Christian voices, but there's also been an increase of pro-Israel rallies [3]. As of January 15, Israel's offensive has so far claimed the lives of 1,077 Palestinians, including at least 235 children, and more than 4,500 have been wounded (50% of them women and children). There are reports that cemeteries in Gaza are running out of space.

Talks of a ceasefire continue, although Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Tuesday that such can be accomplished without reaching any agreement with Hamas [4]. Meanwhile, Hamas' deputy leader Moussa Abu Marzouk told Al-Jazeera that such an agreement must include an opening of Gaza's border crossings. The Israel's blockade of Gaza since June 2007 created a humanitarian crisis and its population of 1.5 million completely dependent on foreign aid [5]. Egypt's proposal so far does not include Hamas demands.

In the United States the Israel lobby continues to make its waves as future Secretary of State Hilary Clinton contradicted on Tuesday Obama's statement of a willingness to talk to Hamas by saying, "You cannot negotiate with Hamas until it renounces violence, recognises Israel and agrees to abide by past agreements." On January 9, the Senate and House passed a resolution in support of Israel's offensive, drafted by one of the most powerful lobbyist groups in the United States: the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) [6].

At the same time, fears have arisen that its war tactics has resorted to targeting journalists within the strip. The International Federation of Journalists issued a condemnation of the Israeli government for bombing the Al-Johara Tower, an eight-story building that housed over 20 news organizations. At least one journalist was reported injured. Four other Palestinian journalists were killed in separate attacks [7], [8].
