Flushing Assemblyperson forum - D., R. and Greens

NYC, 25.10.2004 21:19

(from the Open Newswire): I live in Flushing, and one of the local activists, Evergreen Chou, is involved with the Greens and is running for the New York State Assembly as a Green. I prefer the tactics of direct action to electoral politics but he is a nice guy so I've helped him in his campaign. Saturday there was a forum held, moderated by former WNBC reporter Ti-Hua Chang, of the candidates. All three candidates are from China (including the island of Taiwan). It was held at 2:30PM at the Sheraton LaGuardia East in Flushing

Anti GM Activists Win Court Battle

Scotland, 25.10.2004 17:21

FOUR GM crop protesters convicted of aggravated trespass for their part in a protest at Munlochy on the Black Isle in August 2001 won their appeal at the High Court in Edinburgh on 7th October 2004. The genetically modified crop trials at Munlochy were the target of a sustained, well-supported and ultimately successful campaign of resistance. This included direct actions when people decontaminated fields by uprooting the GM plants. The authorities eventually abandoned plans for a further GM trial in the Scottish Highlands.

Thousands converge to oppose racism

Aotearoa, 24.10.2004 21:47

On Saturday October 23 approximately 2000 people took part in a protest that went from Te Papa to parliament. The march was collectively organised by Multi-Cultural Aotearoa (MCA), a group formed in Wellington to organise and display community opposition to the National Front's (NF) proposed anti-Asian protest on parliament. Stopping the NF was one of the three principles agreed upon at a inagural MCA public meeting, the other two principles were to oppose humiliating immigration policies and to put a stop to Maori-bashing.

The NF backed down from the publicly unpopular anti-Asian march and decided to go to the beehive to say how much they liked the NZ flag instead. There they were confronted by the scary faries. An intimidating rable in fluro and fairy wings. The MCA march left Te Papa and gather in momentum as it proceded to parliament accompanied by music, dancing and chants calling for the end of a racist state and the releasing of Ahmed Zaoui. News reports stated that metal barriers had been erected in parliament ground to seperate the two groups, but the NF had scarpered by the time the large MCA demo arrived.

MichiganIMC was compromised for a few hours on October 23. This was a coordinated (yet simple) attack that affected numerous IMCs including New York, Boston, Buffalo, Hudson Mohawk, Madison, Maine, Milwaukee, New Hampshire, New Jersey (in the US), and possibly more.

The attack caused visitors to the MichiganIMC to be redirected to four sites:,,, and The "hacker," who didn't really do anything creative, clever, or hacker-like at all, runs the website, and admits to the exploit at that site.

New COINTELPRO?- Harrassment of Activists Continues

Arkansas, 24.10.2004 00:53

Arkansas activists would do well to pay attention to these kind of reports as in the last couple of years activists have been harrassed in Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee and Iowa, states not that far away from ours. Indeed, within Arkansas, Middle Eastern students in Fayetteville have been interrogated by the FBI and the Arkansas ACLU reported more than a year ago that at least one person has been "disappeared" from Little Rock by the Feds.

Boston, 23.10.2004 16:45

PepperBall guns, Bean Bag Projectiles and Tasers, seem to be a good idea at first. They have been used to take down knife wielding hostage holders and neutralize would be suicide victims all over the country. They give officers a chance to leave their guns in the holster and defuse dangerous situations without killing. In these situations the risk to life and limb is very real and there is a compelling logic to their use, even a fairly good record to back it up. A certain number of violent criminals have died as a result of bean-bags, pepper spray, and Tasers, but without less than lethal weapons, a gun would be used, and a death would be more likely. But according to studies of some police departments, more than half of the people who end up on the business end of non-lethal weapons are not criminals, and over 80% are not threatening officers or the public with weapons of their own. That was definitely the case Thursday when a Boston Police Officer fired a PepperBall gun into a crowd of celebrating Red Sox fans with a, killing Victoria Snelgrove. The Boston Globe reported only that a bottle was smashed near the police, who were wearing full riot gear at the time. The police are trained to maintain a code of conduct regardless of the conduct of others. One would expect an officer of the law to exercise restraint when wielding a weapon capable of deadly force. Yet, in the case of "less-than lethal" weapons, such a policy simply isn't there.
