What Does The Economic Crisis Mean For The Climate Change Movement?

United Kingdom, 19.02.2009 02:10

We are in the middle of two crises, the climate crisis and the economic crisis. Although we we seem to treat them as separate, it can be argued that they are completely entangled. Tackling one without tackling the other is impossible and fruitless, but the connections are complex and shifting. To intervene effectively, we need to look carefully at how we think about time and change, and how we relate to markets and the state. But first, let's look at how the economic crisis arose and draw some link between this history and the problematics of climate politics.

Other aspects of economic crisis: Leeds | Liverpool | Public services cuts | Evictions | Factory Occupations

How do you know that Indymedia does not keep logs?

United Kingdom, 19.02.2009 00:40

Indymedia UK (IMC-UK) is a network of activists who provide an open publishing platform. We are part of the wider Indymedia Network that started in Seattle during the protests against the WTO in November 1999, and the UK site was one of the first to join the network in early 2000. In common with all Indymedia Centres (IMCs) around the world, as designated in the (draft) Principles of Unity, IMC-UK does not log IP addresses - as detailed on the security page. Moreover, following on from previous requests by governmental authorities for logs, IMC-UK and many other Indymedia sites (e.g. the global website, www.indymedia.org) do not retain any logs related to the website. These facts are documented on our open mailing lists and on the open IMC documentation site, docs.indymedia.org.

In the rest of this article, we provide some advice on how to improve the measures you take when publishing on the website if you want to do so anonymously. We also outline some legal procedures that could potentially be used to attack Indymedia and the right to free expression, as well as describing some of the technical points in more detail.



Máscaras y macroirregularidades en Tenerife

Canarias, 19.02.2009 00:10

Un año más nos encontramos haciéndole frente a la máquina despótica en que se ha convertido la asociación de los intereses del capitalismo salvaje y nuestras instituciones públicas.

Aprovechando estas horas bajas de crisis económica se han propuesto reactivar, a través de la demagogia contra el paro, la cuestión del macropuerto en Granadilla.

El inicio de las obras del macropuerto industrial de Granadilla de Abona en Tenerife es ya un hecho consumado, que expresa en gran medida , con este apresurado comienzo a pocos días de la descatalogación de la especie protegida de los sebadales (último impedimento legal de la obra) la unilateralidad apresurada de un Gobierno que trata de no dejar resquicio al debate social.

La comunidad científica se ha movilizado recientemente y ha convocado una manifestación contra el inicio de esta obra el próximo 14 de marzo, en un intento de hacer valer todos los informes técnicos contrarios a este disparate. Dicha convocatoria se encuentra además apoyada desde Madrid por otra inciativa, una convocatoria para la concentración el 13 de Marzo ante el ministerio de Medioambiente en Madrid.

Por otro lado, la iniciativa popular trata de dar visibilidad a las respuestas a este atropello utilizando formas de expresión más tradicionales y muy enraizadas como son los carnavales. La consigna es ¡Disfrázate contra el puerto!. La imaginación al poder.
Existe una convocatoria especial para asistir al coso (que se celebrará el próximo martes 24 de febrero) para que la multitud represente su oposición y de rienda suelta a su capacidad crítica en el carnaval, una fiesta originalmente trasgresora que cada vez más queda encorsetada en los dispositivos organizados y controlados por los poderes públicos.

Tal y como estamos acostumbrados, es previsible, que en el relato de las fiestas de este año, los medios oficiales traten de ocultar la respuesta de la gente. Es por ello que están surgiendo iniciativas como la de un concurso fotográfico, que rescate y capture de todas las imágenes potenciales que se puedan generar durante el carnaval contra las macroirregularidades en Tenerife. Una llamada a la participación para dar cobertura mediática a las expresiones carnavaleras contra el puerto.

Light at the End of the Tunnel: Communities Must Stand Together for Change

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.02.2009 00:10

Diverse communities in the U.S. have been standing together to bring about social change at the grassroots level in an unprecedented wave of euphoria set off by the inauguration of Barack Obama. Whether in public meetings, workshops, or protests the unity of purpose and momentum is palpable. What will it take to translate that human energy into real change?

Represión mortal en Senegal

Canarias, 18.02.2009 20:10

La situación sigue siendo dura en Kédougou. Desde el martes pasado, día 23, el ejército senegalés persigue a los jóvenes hasta sus casas para detenerlxs. La policía dice que han perdido una docena de armas de fuego que pertenecen a la brigada móvil de seguridad (BMS), incluidas tres ya encontradas. Según las mismas fuentes, es imprescindible encontrar esas armas antes de liberar a 21 jóvenes aún retenidxs en la cárcel.

Tres días después de la represión de las fuerzas armadas senegalesas contra la manifestación en la población de Kédougou donde el joven Sinna Mamadou Sidibe murió asesinado tras los sangrientos acontecimientos que tuvieron lugar entre las fuerzas armadas y la juventud senegalesa el martes, finalmente fué enterrado el jueves 25 en torno a las 10 AM. Los resultados de la autopsia realizada por el médico del hospital Dantec finalmente confirmó que fué alcanzado por un disparo de bala en la cabeza.

La Unión Europea cerró, en 2007, la incineradora de Mendo (La Palma) por peligro de contaminación, ahora y con pleno consenso de los trillizos CC-PP-PSOE, el Cabildo de Tenerife aprueba su Plan Territorial de Ordenación de los Residuos para Tenerife (PTEOR) y compra la oferta que el ayuntamiento hizo el martes rechazando la incineradora, aunque diciendo que si se la imponen, aceptarán una compensación económica. Ricardo Melchior asegura que compensará a Arico por soportar la futura incineradora.



¿Tendremos que esperar otros diez años a que cierren este crimen al futuro de nuestrxs hijxs?. En esta Isla el problema de los residuos le importa a todo el mundo una puta mierda, los culpables son los que se inventan las soluciones que nos venden. Igual que lxs vecinxs de San Bartolomé de Tirajana paramos la incineradora en Juan Grande, volvemos a tener que ser nosotrxs lxs que paremos este crimen contra nuestro futuro:
"El mejor residuo, el que no se genera".

Mass union leaders call on Obama to support Medicare for All

Boston, 18.02.2009 20:09

More than forty Massachusetts labor leaders have signed onto a letter to President Obama raising concerns that some policy makers in Washington are backing health care reforms based on the state plan adopted two years ago. The Massachusetts plan features an "individual mandate" requiring all citizens to buy private health insurance. The letter sent today and spearheaded by the Jobs with Justice coalition, states:



Remembering Guy Chichester, activist and friend of NH Indymedia

New Hampshire, 18.02.2009 19:41

Guy Chichester passed away a little over a week ago. Guy will be remembered for his work in co-founding the Clamshell Alliance, his work on the Greens, in the anti-nuclear movement, and his peace activism. Among the countless meetings and actions Guy worked on, he helped organize one of the first meetings to discuss creating an NH Indymedia site. The article below, linked from the Globe, discusses some of his work. His famous political dissent case, referenced in the article below, but not in good detail, involved chain sawing down a warning siren at the Seabrook nuclear power plant in 1990. Guy did it to protest the state government's participation in misleading seacoast residents into thinking an evacuation plan existed in the event of a nuclear emergency at Seabrook. The "Arcane Article" cited in the Globe piece from Guy's legal defense was Article 10 of the New Hampshire Constitution: The Right of Revolution. Article 10 states, "The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind." Guy and his team successfully used the article to argue that his own act had not been a criminal offense against the laws of the state, but a revolutionary political action. Guy would later cite the article as a witness in the trials of other activists who had committed nonviolent acts of resistance. We will remember Guy as a larger than life, peaceful revolutionary, as someone who stood up for his community and environment, as an activist who helped stop Onassis from building an oil refinery on the seacoast, as one of the many arrested at Seabrook in 1976, as an unlikely politician who ran for governor and helped organize the NH Green Party, as someone who for years protested war in its many forms, including the economic blockade of Iraq, as a nonviolent dissident arrested while protesting the Iraq War at Senator Gregg's office in 2005, as the person handing out copies of War Times in the streets of Portsmouth, as a dead ringer for Gandalf the Grey, as a journalist and playwright, as someone who promoted local democracy and town meetings, as someone who brought people together, and, finally, we will remember him as a person who sometimes saw it necessary to take a chainsaw to the system.

Not Just Peace, But Justice: DC's LASC/NACLA Event A Well-Attended Success

DC, 18.02.2009 19:10

A teach-in organized by the Latin America Solidarity Coalition (LASC) and the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) and LASC and co-sponsored by SOA Watch, CISPES, the Alliance for Global Justice and other organizations drew a crowd of over 125 people to Howard University to hear about the problems in Latin America which are caused by US militarism including US-funding of Latin American military and police as well as militarization of social problems such as drug use and immigration. The teach-in on Feb. 15, 2009 is the first of three LASC/NACLA teach-ins on 11 foreign policy changes the LASC is working on as part of its campaign “Toward a New US Latin America Foreign Policy.” Teach-ins in Chicago and Berkeley in April will address the LASC demands on sovereignty and democracy manipulation and trade and economic justice, respectively.

Justice Never Served... Five Years after the Murder of Rudy Cardenas by State Police

Santa Cruz, CA, 18.02.2009 01:39

In lieu of recent high profile cases of police brutality and murder, it is important to remember that these atrocities are an ongoing epidemic in the Chicano and Black communities. On February 17, 2004, Rudy Cardenas, a father of five children, was shot and killed by state narcotics agent Michael Walker in San Jose. Jesse Villarreal, a nephew of Rudy Cardenas, was interviewed on February 14th about his uncle's murder, the organizing efforts to bring attention to the issue, the results of the case, and how this incident is similar to the case involving the murder of Oscar Grant.

(written on 100% Salvaged/scrap paper)

The longest night of the year has passed. As we move toward the light, we are entering a new era. Many have a hope that Obama will bring forth some form of restoration to these dilapidated political and economic systems. I see very much of the same people, advisors and policies of previous administrations which have brought about colossal damage to the planet, people's rights and overall health, justice and freedom. If Obama rally does want to bring about positive change, will he be allowed? I pray the hearts and minds of those people in positions of power will be filled with that which is utilitarian-based (and not greed-based). In the meantime, we have much to do...

Eric McDavid Update - Lockdowns, Move and New Address

Portland, 17.02.2009 17:39

Dear friends,

Last month marked the 3rd year that Eric has spent behind bars. His arrest and imprisonment were a direct result of government infiltration and entrapment - Eric has spent the last three years of his life in a cage for what amounts to thought crime. Those years have been full of challenges and struggle, but Eric has met all of them with the utmost courage and integrity.

The appeals process has been delayed multiple times. Eric's opening brief is now due March 5. He has multiple strong arguments on appeal, and we look forward to getting the process moving. If all goes well, everything could be filed for review by the appeals court sometime this summer. Thank you all for your continued support. Eric has been receiving your letters and they have definitely helped him through these winter months - especially during these lockdowns when he has not been able to have contact with his loved ones.

Please remember that Eric has been moved - which means he has a new address:

Ireland: occupiers keep factory alive

Portland, 17.02.2009 17:39

Hundreds of workers are occupying the plant in Waterford in southeast Ireland to keep the factory open after its receiver, David Carson, tried to lock them out. They have occupied the workplace since 30 January.

Workers describe it as "our factory" - and it is. They are running a six-hour shift system to occupy the building... The furnace must stay working for production at the factory to continue. If the furnace stops, the glass will solidify and the repairs would cost 8 million euros.

With measure 5-190 and its high-profile court challenge, the previously invisible Latino community has been thrust into the spotlight. In the Procession for Respect and Dignity, the community will speak with a united voice for the first time, and show that we are your neighbors: honest, working people who deserve respect and dignity.

Chicago Freedom To Marry Actions See Hundreds Protest, Seven Arrested

Chicago, 16.02.2009 16:09

From the newswire: "Seven activists with the Gay Liberation Network (GLN) and the Chicago chapter of the Join The Impact [campaign] were arrested today when they refused to leave the Cook County Marriage License Bureau in Chicago after clerks said they would not issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. Meanwhile, about 400 protesters rallied outside the Bureau and then marched to the Bureau's doors.

"While the Chicago protesters saw their action as a way to help sway the California Supreme Court to throw out Proposition 8, local issues played a role as well. Despite having a state government completely dominated by the supposedly gay-friendly Democratic Party, Illinois doesn't even have civil unions, let alone marriage equality. Moreover, like dozens of states, Illinois has its own "Defense of Marriage Act"; yet the state Democratic Party leadership won't even offer a promise to junk the anti-gay legislation."
