Sea Shepherd Returns From the Whale Wars

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.02.2009 11:10

Since December, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has been disrupting whaling operations by a Japanese fleet that illegally hunts whales under the guise of "research." Confrontations included Sea Shepard lobbing rotten butter onto the decks of the whaling ships as well as directly ramming whaling ships on the open seas at times. The whalers in turn have used sonic weapons to retaliate. After three months of operations attempting to prevent the illegal whaling, the Sea Sheperd crew are returning to better prepare for future battles with the whalers.

Community Groups Take Over BART Board Meeting

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.02.2009 09:10

On Thursday, February 12th, community activists attended a BART Board of Directors meeting to voice their concerns about the inadequate response to the abuse and murder of Oscar Grant III on January 1st. Activists assumed control of the meeting and unfurled a banner in the room. Three demands were issued. Demonstrators then worked their way through the Board asking them one by one to publicly commit to the demands. Activists promised that "more, much more is coming," unless BART accedes to the community's demands for more accountability and transparency.

read from a prepared statement announcing that student activists were

Protect old-growth redwoods and spotted owls in Cascadia!

Starting Sun. the 15th, Green Diamond is approved to begin logging in the McKay tract of forest in Humboldt County, CA. This is home to several Old-Growth redwoods and Northern Spotted Owls (an endangered species).

The biggest threat to the northern spotted owl is loss of old growth forest habitat as a result of logging and forest fragmentation. As a result of declining habitat due to logging, as well as this interruption of their annual mating season(feb-mar), their population is only 2000-3000 pairs and dwindling.

EF!ers in Humboldt are increasingly busy as the potential start-up of logging approaches.

Victory for wildcat strikers

United Kingdom, 12.02.2009 19:39

Thousands of workers in the construction industry who walked out in solidarity with workers at the Lindsey oil refinery run by Total in Killingholme, Lincolnshire, have won a significant victory. Strikers at Lindsey voted to accept a deal drawn up by union officials and the companies involved in the dispute and end their unofficial industrial action on Thursday 5th February.

The government and media have been keen to present this as a nationalist or even "racist" dispute and the ever-opportunistic BNP made efforts to capitalise on the struggle. Certainly there have been reactionary elements within the strike and the "British jobs for British workers" slogan, which echoes Prime Minister Gordon Brown, is unerringly reminiscent of the far-right. Nevertheless, the politics of the strike were complicated and at Langage Power Station near Plymouth, Polish workers joined strikers.
