Chicago Independent TV in February: Did someone say protest?

Chicago, 02.02.2009 16:08

The February episode of Chicago Independent Television features four segments about recent Chicago protests. First, we'll see one of the many sweeping Gaza protests in early 2009. Then, we'll join up with two LGBT-rights actions — one against right-wing ideologue James Dobson, another to protest California's Proposition 8 measure against same-sex marriage. And, we'll also join in with a group of Chicagoans who protested against war during the recent holiday season.

The Freedom Shop is moving!

Aotearoa, 02.02.2009 10:10

Alas, the Freedom Shop has recently moved out of Shop 204b, Left bank, Cuba Mall, Wellington. The shop is New Zealand's longest running anarchist bookshop, having been set up in 1995.

Nottingham university occupied in solidarity with Gaza

United Kingdom, 02.02.2009 00:09

Since 9pm on Wednesday a group of students has been occupying a room at the University of Nottingham in solidarity with the people of Gaza. The students have published a list of demands that include that the university of Nottingham cut its financial ties with the arms industry, that 'academic' aid be sent to Gaza, and that there be no repercussions for those involved in the occupation.

Professor Noam Chomsky has sent the students a message of support stating that he was "very pleased to learn about your courageous and honorable actions, particularly significant because of the crucial British contribution to the savage onslaught on Gaza... I hope you have the greatest success in arousing public opinion and bringing these monstrous crimes to an end."

Update 01/02/09: The occupation has been violently evicted by university security. At around 6pm around 10 security staff used force to remove the occupants into the snow outside. Students were made to wait in the cold whilst they went in one by one to pick up belongings. They were also forced to give ID in order to be allowed entry.

Free Gaza Activists, Donna and Darlene Wallach, Welcomed Home to San Jose

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.02.2009 21:39

Two American Jewish women, Donna and Darlene Wallach, left their lives behind in San Jose six months ago to break the Israeli siege of Gaza. Courageously sailing on the first two Free Gaza boats, SS Free Gaza and SS Liberty, they had no idea of their fate at the hands of the Israeli navy, which has maintained a total sea blockade of Gaza since the 1970s. On January 25th, the two sisters arrived at Mineta San Jose International Airport to a heroes' welcome.

Obama, Guantánamo and the “War on Terror”

United Kingdom, 01.02.2009 16:39

Former Guantánamo prisoners including Moazzam Begg and Chris Arendt, a former guard, are completing a UK speaking tour to “mark seven years of unlawful detention, abuse and torture”. The tour, organised by Cage Prisoners started in London on 11th January 2009, exactly seven years after the first transfers to the prison torture camp at Guantánamo Bay at date which was marked in London by a weekend of actions. Sami al-Haj, a former Guantánamo prisoner and Al Jazeera journalist was due to be one of the speakers but instead he joined a Free Gaza boat which was fired on and didn’t make it. By the Sheffield meeting, held on the date of Obama’s inauguration, he had been replaced by Omar Deghayes another former Guantánamo prisoner. In Liverpool the meeting “was held on the same day as the US president signed an order to close Guantanamo. Moazzam Begg was not impressed, and commented that Barack Obama spoke about ‘outlawing torture’ as though he himself had just decided to make it illegal: “It has ALWAYS been illegal, at least in any civilised country”" Further reports can be found on the tour blog.

Plans To Gut Chicago Public Schools Draws Scores to Protest

Chicago, 31.01.2009 04:09

Hundreds of concerned students, teachers, parents, and concerned citizens converged to a Chicago Public School board meeting, protested in the streets, and staged a downtown rally. The coalition called on a moratorium of the controversial "Renaissance 2010" plan to privatize Chicago Public Schools — ostensibly under the rubric of "underutilization" and "failing test scores", though poised to accelerate trends of gentrification and displacing low-income communities.

The current announced changes would result in at least five closed schools, five more schools consolidated into other schools, and five more schools slated for phase-out. The plans are a legacy of outgoing Chicago Schools CEO Arne Duncan, who has been tapped as the Obama Administration's Secretary of Education.

Alexander: Obama’s $825 Billion Stimulus Plan offers too little, too late

Boston, 30.01.2009 17:09

With less than 10 days in office, President Barack Obama has indicated that his $825 billion economic stimulus package will energize the U.S. economy and create future jobs for more than three million Americans. Socialists nationwide are rejecting this new call for deficit spending and are calling for programs that will meet the short and long term needs of the nation and create immediate employment for the millions of working people that are unemployed or under-employed.

Home Depot, Bank of America Executives Caught on Tape trying to Defeat the EFCA

Boston, 30.01.2009 17:09

Bank of America, Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, Rick Berman founder of Union Facts exposed on tape trying to Defeat The Employee Free Choice Act. Audio of the conference call, which was obtained by the Huffington Post, is excerpted throughout this piece to provide a clearer insight into the pitched battle surrounding the Employee Free Choice legislation. Participants on the October 17 call--including at least one representative from another bailout recipient, AIG--were urged to persuade their clients to send "large contributions" to groups working against the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), as well as to vulnerable Senate Republicans, who could help block passage of the bill. Bernie Marcus, the charismatic co-founder of Home Depot, led the call along with Rick Berman, an aggressive EFCA opponent and founder of the Center for Union Facts.

Inauguration Week Coverage Roundup

United States, 29.01.2009 23:07

On January 20th, 2009, George W Bush left the White House and Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States. Despite efforts to transform the inauguration into a coronation, the people kept it real and independent media makers were on hand to document it.

From DC-IMC: In freezing weather, over one million, but maybe not 2 mil mostly 20 and 30 something year olds, were packed into the National Mall around the jumbotron screens to watch Obama get inaugurated (There was one big empty space behind the Washington Monument where there was no TV.) When the 43rd Pres, Bush, was introduced to the crowd, there was a very loud boo. And thumping gloved hands for the Obama. Read More | List of Events.

Some groups were welcomed with front row passes, while others that presented more of a challenge to the new regime's message were shuffled to the margins, snubbed or forcibly "migrated". And according to some Israeli officials, the ceasefire with Hamas was declared in part in order to prevent "distracting news stories" from interrupting the day's mood.

Still, activists were out before and after the inauguration, determined to make the most of the coming of this historic era. The day before the ceremony, on Martin Luther King Day, demonstrators called for peace in Gaza in of the slain civil rights leader: [1] [2] [3] [4] And the day afterward, clergy gathered to vigil and pray for immigration reform and anti-war activists assembled to demand that Obama stop the spread of the "war on terror".
