These nights are for Alexis: A closer look into the December uprising in Greece

Boston, 26.01.2009 00:09

Eleven days after the 15-year old boy Alexandros Grogopoulos was killed by a police bullet in Athens, I decide to travel to Greece. The following article is no news, nor is it an analysis of the news. It is an attempt to create more understanding of the inner workings of the uprising, the sociopolitical and cultural climate in which it took place and the movement behind it. It does not attempt to give an objective representation of the uprising instead it is written from a highly subjective perspective and a compilation of interviews I held with people from the anarchist/anti-autoritarian movement in Thessaloniki.

American Indian leader and political prisoner Leornard Peltier was brutally beaten on Tuesday, January 20th, just after he was transferred to the Canaan Federal Penitentiary in Pennsylvania.

Call Goes Out for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Against Israel

United States, 25.01.2009 06:37

In the wake of Israel's attack on Gaza — which killed 1300 Palestinians, injured thousands, and decimated the already-impoverished Gaza Strip — a growing network of organizations is calling for coordinated boycott, divestment and sanctions ("BDS") against Israel and Israeli corporations. Adalah-NY: The Coalition for Justice in the Middle East has recently released a flyer with information on ten Israeli and international businesses, including L'Oreal, Motorola, and Delta Galil Clothing, that they are urging consumers to boycott. For the past year, Adalah-NY has been holding regular protests at the diamond manufacturer Leviev, in the heart of Manhattan's shopping district (See roundup of coverage here).

On Friday, protesters in St. Paul, MN attempted to occupy the Trade Office to call out local ties to Israel's attacks on Gaza. Other demonstrations of solidarity have continued in the wake of the ceasefire.

3 Baltimore Animal Rights Activists Illegally Arrested

DC, 25.01.2009 02:10

On Friday Jan 23rd at about 7:45 pm 3 Baltimore Animal Rights activists were arrested while legally and peacefully protesting Foie Gras at The Intercontinental Hotel's restaurant located in the Inner Harbor area. After about 30 minutes of protest that was legal and on public side walk area- Police came from all angles in an "ambush" method- waving their billy clubs and using verbal threats to make the activists leave. 2 activists who were peacefully asking why they had to leave were cuffed. Another protester who was just arriving on the scene was first threatened by police when they saw him taking pictures with his camera phone. He walked away as asked by police and when he asked for a badge number- he was arrested. This unbelievable display of injustice just adds to the already known corruption of the Baltimore City Police. Please call central booking of Baltimore to request that these activists be released and that they get vegan food.

Reportback from the Sam Adams Rally

Portland, 24.01.2009 20:39

Last night, 200+ people showed up at Portland City Hall, starting around 5:30 pm to show their support for the recently elected mayor Sam Adams who is now the subject of a gay witch hunt.

People brought their signs, support and voices as they gathered en-masse in front of City Hall. Most signs read something such as, "We Still Support Sam" and "Apology Accepted." Others reflected this reporter's sentiments with "Transportation is an issue. Homelessness is an issue. The economy is an issue. And all you want to talk about is SEX? Go F*ck Yourselves!"

FBI Announces Sighting of Fugitive in BC

Portland, 24.01.2009 14:38

The Oregonian and other corporate media published articles yesterday announcing a sighting of Rebecca Rubin, fugitive in the Northwest "Green Scare" cases, who is indicted for Arson and other charges related to actions at Vail Ski Resort, a Susanville, CA wild horse corral, and other actions.

The articles are reprinted nearly verbatim from an FBI press release, and beg the question, "Why would they show their hand?" Logically, it would seem that letting Rebecca know she had been sighted (via the media) would only give her an advantage.

It is my opinion that the intention of this release is a calculated attempt to stir chatter to assist in the hunt for Rebecca and other fugitives. Have no doubt that they are listening in on the phone conversations and email accounts of anyone they suspect of having a connection to Rebecca.

This may seem obvious to some, but warrants pointing out.



Sat Jan 31 -Town Hall on the Economic Crisis

Portland, 24.01.2009 14:38

You are invited to a Town Hall on the Economic Crisis

First Unitarian Church, SW 12th and Main
Saturday, January 31, 1-5 pm

While almost $2.5 trillion of our money was squandered on easy term loans to banks and investment houses, we lost 2.6 million jobs in 2008! One million jobs were lost just between Nov. 1st and Dec. 31st of 2008. With a good deal more suffering likely, we are in the most difficult economic times since the Great Depression.

* What are the root causes of the economic crisis?
* What should we fight for? What is a "recovery?"
* How do the millions of people who voted for change help make it happen?

Donations welcome -- Sponsored by Jobs with Justice, the Economic Justice Action Group of the First Unitarian Church, and over 45 unions, community organizations, churches, and other groups.

Friday morning, on the fourth day of trial, Ramsey County District Court Judge Michael Fetsch dismissed all charges against the "Wall 7," some of the first activists to go to trial in connection with the RNC.

Ongoing Surveillance of Activists in Auckland

Aotearoa, 24.01.2009 09:10

The past few weeks have seen a rise in protest activity in Auckland, with a corresponding increase in police surveillance and numbers on demonstrations. We believe it is important to be aware of what the police are doing and why. At the march against the Israeli invasion two weeks ago a photographer moved through the crowd taking close-ups of activists. When challenged about why he was taking photos he replied that ‘it was a free country and he could take photos of whoever he wanted.’ Pressed as to why he was taking photos of individuals he replied that “the issue is about the individuals involved”



Prop 2 Inspires Formation of Grassroots Animal Rights Group

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.01.2009 08:09

Mark Hawthorne writes: One of the most exciting results of Proposition 2 - California's successful campaign to ban battery cages for hens, gestation crates pigs and veal crates for calves - is that it energized activists across the United States, introducing a new generation of animal advocates to the horrors of factory farming. Many of these people had known little, if anything, about agribusiness practices. But they literally took up the Prop 2 banner, getting involved in the fight to end the use of intensive-confinement devices in California.

Ashland's Siskiyou Pub had an overflow crowd with an exciting buzz from Inauguration Day 2009. Anne Feeney sang some old and some new labor songs and told some stories to a jubilant crowd that was ready to celebrate. The sing-along songs were the biggest hit as a roomful of voices filled the Pub.

Приют. Срочно нужна помощь.

Belarus, 23.01.2009 21:26

По распоряжению руководства “Фауны города” на Гурского, 42 комнаты отлова №9 и 11, комната опекаемых котов №10 и комната стерилизованных собак №6 должны были быть освобождены к утру пятницы, 23 января. Комнаты планируется отдать под размещение администрации и многочисленных сотрудников предприятия. Технологические планы здания четко регламентируют, что эти помещения построены для размещения животных.

Количество мест для животных уменьшается, а план отлова увеличивается. Таким образом, комната эвтаназии будет работать как заводской конвейер.

В среду новый директор предприятия Томашевский Александр Вениаминович, вступивший на эту должность в понедельник, встретился с представителями волонтеров и опекунов и заверил, что ничего меняться не будет.
В четверг, 22 января, в комнате отлова №9 уже начали двигать клетки!!! Все стерилизованные собаки из комнаты №6 стоят в вольерах на улице.

Obama Inauguration Celebration Santa Cruz Style

Santa Cruz, CA, 23.01.2009 18:08

Agusto Cesar Sandino Segundo writes, "A cynical summary: On Tuesday Jan. 20th 2009, aka Inauguration Day, the newly sworn in Citizens in Chief's of the peoples republik celebrated the installation of the latest in a long series of puppets and front men for gangster capitalism aka de'mock'cracy Amerikkkan style. Although the day remains historic in the history of race relations in this nation, and for many this is an important victory in the civil and political rights struggle, it remains to be seen how much change really lies ahead despite all the rhetoric from this young president. While this commentator believes Prez Obama has more or less good intentions, the system he rose to power in is rotten to the core and will hinder his ability to deliver on his many promises."



Indymedia op het matje

Netherlands, 23.01.2009 16:39

Als het aan de Amsterdamse Politie ligt, wordt Indymedia in de toekomst verantwoordelijk gesteld voor alle wildgeplakte aktieposters in Amsterdam. Donderdag mag de rechter zeggen wat hij ervan vindt (22-01-2009 10:45, Parnassusweg Amsterdam).

Update: Tijdens een zitting die minder dan tien minuten duurde, eiste de officier van justitie vrijspraak en van de rechter kregen we die. Dat de poster op Indymedia gepubliceerd is, betekent niet dat wij de posters hebben geplakt, vindt ook het gerecht. Namens onze bankrekening, advocaat en de belastingbetaler vragen we overijverige milieu-ambtenaren om hun boetes in het vervolg naar een ander andres te sturen.

Water meters not about conservation

Aotearoa, 23.01.2009 04:42

Local human rights group, Right to Water, argues against water metering on any grounds. A user-pays system for domestic water supply will increase inequality and is a dubious way to conserve water resources says a local human rights group. The Wellington Regional Council and the NZ Water and Wastes Association have both recently called for compulsory water metering and charging households by the volume of water used. “These proposals aren’t about solving water shortages. They're about enabling business to access a sector previously off limits,” says Right to Water spokesperson Maria McMillan.
