Justice for the Shrewsbury 24 building workers! Support EDM 1002

United Kingdom, 11.03.2009 19:09

1972 was a year of successful industrial action in Britain. The miners had won over pay, the Tory Government had been forced to release five imprisoned dockers. 1972 also saw Britain's first National Building Workers' strike. The strike committees of North Wales building workers would go on to be the victims of one of the worst miscarriages of justice since the days of the Tolpuddle Martyrs. They would be vilified and hounded by parts of the press, convicted by a court as a deterrent to strikers, and abandoned by their own union leaders and the TUC. Six of them would go to prison and one of these would die later as a result of the treatment he received while there. See  http://www.catalystmedia.org.uk/issues/nerve10/shrewsbury_pickets.php

37 years later, an Early Day Motion (EDM) has been tabled demanding a public inquiry into the gross miscarriages of justice and disclosure of all Government and security papers relating to the case.

WOPR Not Dead Yet

Portland, 11.03.2009 17:08

The BLM's massive Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR) logging plan has ignited a groundswell of opposition stretching from government scientists and the general public to Oregon's Governor and Congressional Representatives. Unfortunately, the BLM is pushing forward with the misguided direction of the Bush administration regardless of popular opinion, the law or scientific review.

As it stands today, the WOPR is the law of the land for over 2.5 million acres of forests in Western Oregon, and the BLM is taking steps to implement the plan on the ground. The first major project under the WOPR was just announced, and it is a 1400 acre clear cut above salmon-bearing streams in Oregon's Coast Range called "Edson". If allowed to move forward, this destructive Bush-era plan will repeat this form of industrial logging across Oregon's remaining natural heritage.



Lawsuit filed against Tacoma over '07 Port of Tacoma arrests

Portland, 11.03.2009 17:08

On Friday, March 6, 2009, three activists filed a lawsuit against the City of Tacoma for false arrest and other violations committed by Tacoma police during an anti-war demonstration.

Elizabeth Rivera Goldstein, Thomas McCarthy, and Phan Nguyen were arrested under the pretext of wearing backpacks in a "no-backpack zone" at the Port of Tacoma in March 2007.The activists had been demonstrating against the Iraq "troop surge" and the expedited deployment of the 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division to Iraq from Ft. Lewis. For two weeks in March 2007, the Port of Tacoma was the focal point for demonstrations against the deployment, as Stryker vehicles were being shipped out through the Port of Tacoma in advance of the 4th Brigade's actual deployment.

During this time, Tacoma police established a fenced-in "free speech zone" in the Port of Tacoma where demonstrators were compelled to congregate. Police set up random checkpoints to prevent the demonstrators from entering the "free speech zone" with backpacks and purses. The checkpoints appeared arbitrarily at varying locations and at various times throughout the protests. At times, the restrictions were arbitrarily applied to backpacks, purses, bags, buckets, boxes and even plastic water bottles. All restrictions were established without probable cause.

Thomas McCarthy was arrested on the night of March 9, 2007 while attempting to carry a backpack with food and medical supplies into the "free speech zone." Elizabeth Rivera Goldstein and Phan Nguyen were arrested along with six other demonstrators on March 11, 2007 for wearing backpacks into the "free speech zone." Goldstein's backpack contained a teddy bear, while Nguyen's "frontpack" contained a copy of the United States Constitution.

21 maart Internationale Anti Navo actiedag

Netherlands, 11.03.2009 09:39

De NAVO bestaat 60 jaar, al bijna even lang wordt er tegen geprotesteerd door actievoerders in de verschillende lidstaten. Eerst omwille van de rol die de Navo speelde in het escaleren van de koude oorlog en de nucleaire bewapeningswedloop, later ook omwille van de expansionistische rol en de uitbreiding van het werkgebied tot ver buiten de buitengrenzen van deze alliantie. Reeds jaren lang nemen Nederlandse actievoerders deel aan de erg succesvolle Bomspottingacties in België en wordt actie gevoerd tegen de Navo basis in Volkel waar Amerikaanse kernkoppen opgeslagen zijn. Dit jaar organiseert Ontwapen! ook een herovering van Nieuw Milligen.

Als voorproefje op de internationale actiedag werden op 13 februari twee radiotorens op het militaire terrein bezet.

Op 3 en 4 april wordt in Straatsburg (Fr) en Baden-Baden (De) een NAVO top gehouden waarbij ook de 60ste verjaardag wordt gevierd. Van 31 maart tot 5 april wordt daarom in Straatsburg een tegentop georganiseerd.

Sister Helen Prejean on Death Penalty, Bush and Gonzales

DC, 11.03.2009 07:11

On March 9, 2009, Sister Helen Prejean spoke out for the repeal of the Death Penalty in Maryland. Her remarks were made at the Parish Hall of the historic St. Anne’s Church, in Annapolis, MD, near the State House where the General Assembly meets. Sister Prejean also ripped former President and ex-Texas Governor, George W. Bush, and his then legal counsel, Alberto “Gonzo” Gonzales, for the cursory manner in which they carried out hundreds of executions of condemned prisoners in Texas.

'Loopholes' in Gov. O'Malley's Law to Curb Police Spying

DC, 11.03.2009 07:11

On March 9, 2009, Ms. Cynthia Boersma, the Legislative Director of the ACLU in Maryland, discussed the status of legislation pending in the General Assembly to curb the widespread practice of “police spying” on peace and social justice activists in violation of their First Amendment Rights. Ms. Boersma added that O’Malley’s Bill contains many “loopholes and exceptions for police conduct” that would authorize much of the spying that took place. Video: “Loopholes” in Gov.

Day X, The Re-Xamination

Portland, 11.03.2009 07:09

Six years ago, the call went out to people; "We march when they start bombing" & "When bombs drop Portland stops". It was simply a matter of time before the United States attacked Iraq and people around the world were prepared to show the US gov't that it wouldn't go unchallenged. In Portland, Oregon, thousands of people set out to 'shut down the city' and succeeded in blocking three interstate highways and as many bridges, as well as occupying a major intersection until far into the night and early morning.

Police were brutal in their response. Independent videographers outnumbered corporate cameramen by a large margin, and 'Day X' is the best coverage of the day & night of resistance. Compiled by Portland Indymedia activists from footage from many different independent media cameras, 'Day X' is the people of Portland's story on how we responded directly after the US invaded Iraq.

Tonight, Portland Anti-Imperialists will be screening this documentary at the Red and Black Cafe, starting at 7pm. After the video, we will have a panel discussion with some of the videoistas from the day and people that organized resistance on that day.



March 14th: Schools, Not Jails! Institutionalized Racism &amp; Black Liberation

Seattle, 11.03.2009 07:09

One in thirty one.

As a public school teacher I am quite familiar with this figure—it’s a typical teacher to student ratio in the classroom. But now that proportion has taken on new significance: A report released on March 2nd by the Pew Center on the States found that one in every thirty-one adults reside in the US corrections system—now totaling some 7.3 million people.

That means roughly one student per classroom in America will end up in prison, on parole, or on probation.

Tuesday memorial for beloved Guatemalan activist Jose Ruiz Maya

Chicago, 10.03.2009 05:22

Friends, family and comrades of Guatemalan activist and Chicago resident Jose Ruiz Maya will gather on Tuesday night from 6-9PM on Chicago's north side to remember our comrade and help raise funds for his funeral. The event is being held at Casa Guatemala's free trade store, Maya Essence, at 4357 N. Lincoln Ave. (at Montrose) on Chicago's north side.

For more than 25 years, Jose Maya was a committed participant in local movement work, never failing to lead with his compassion and sense of solidarity for the struggle for economic and social justice. For him, there were no sacred cows, and he informed his work with an abiding kindness — and a relentless refusal to simply stand by in silence, when the crimes of government instead demand that we step up.

a todos los que sufren el desempleo de hoy, la incertidumbre del mañana,
a todos los marginados sociales, políticos, económicos,
a los que no pintan nada, a los despreciados, a los que sólo se tiene en cuenta
como números en una estadística, a los que son sólo un tanto por ciento,
a todos, ellos y ellas, a todos y a todas los que siempre han callado,
los que siempre han obedecido, a todos los dominados y las dominadas,
a todos y todas les decimos
que ha llegado el tiempo de dejar de ser invisibles, el tiempo del disenso,
el tiempo del no, del no a la explotación, del no a las mentiras,
del no a la corrupción, del no a la dominación,
el tiempo del ¡Ya está bien!,
el tiempo de levantarnos, de reconocernos,
de mirarnos a los ojos y cogernos de las manos,
de caminar hombro con hombro, de ver nuestra fuerza, de tomar las calles,
de cercar las sedes del Poder, de gritarle lo que pensamos de él,
de decirle que ya no nos engaña, que nunca más volverá a engañarnos ni robarnos,
que si no pueden contener sus ansias de rapiña, que la practican entre ellos,
que se roben unos a otros, que Ignacio estafe a Plasencia, o viceversa,
que los dos defrauden a Zerolo, que entre todos le quiten el chalet a Melchior,
el palacete a Soria o a Rivero, que roben donde hay que robar
y que dejen de expoliarnos a los que tenemos poco o casi nada o nada.
Ha llegado la hora de apagar los televisores y encender las calles,
convertirlas en olas humanas que arrastren la mediocridad,
la cochambre, la prepotencia de los poderosos.

You remember, that plan to double nuclear power in the U.S. while adding dangerous waste to Hanford, putting nuclear trucks on the road, and risking nuclear weapons proliferation. This is your final opportunity to let USDOE know that it has completely failed to address the risks to the environment and human health from its plan.

2 Animal Rights Activists Arrested as “Terrorists” for Freeing Mink in Utah

Portland, 09.03.2009 17:09

Two animal rights activists have been arrested under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act in connection to the release of mink from Utah fur farms. The crimes are attributed to the Animal Liberation Front, which the FBI labels the "number one domestic terrorism threat."

William Viehl, 22, and Alex Hall, 20, were arrested in connection with the August, 2008 release of 300 minks from a South Jordan fur farm. It caused about $10,000 in damages. Spray painted slogans were found on the scene, including "No More Mink, No More Murder" and "ALF: We Are Watching." The two are also accused of attempting to damage another mink farm a few months later.

After seven years of occupation, women in Iraq still suffer from insecurity and outrageous misogynist practices of the Islamist and nationalist ruling militias. The multiplying anti-women media of the ruling militias attempt to abort all our modern achievements for women's rights. Their media shows women who veil their presence from the society with ragged historic wear, thus announcing their total submission to the newly created male-chauvinist culture in Iraq.
