Smack A White Boy: March 21 Radical People of Color Anti-War (distr)Action

DC, 19.03.2009 07:11

For over 500 years, the white colonizers of this hemisphere (and most of the world) have subjected people of color to lifetimes of enslavement, torture, occupation, internment, police brutality, poverty, drug abuse and so on. Even after being beaten, raped, segregated, and silenced people of color the world over have risen up to their oppressors and oppressive institutions only to have their messages and rage co-opted by so-called “allies” within the mostly white progressive, anti-war movement – righteous anger channeled into more “acceptable” avenues whose purpose is not active engagement with that which oppresses us but in the creation of photo opportunities and press releases. In effect, we as people of color are not only further marginalized but tokenized as well.



Peace Activists Arrested while Confronting the War Machine

DC, 19.03.2009 07:11

ARLINGTON, VA - Seven peace activists were arrested this morning as they attempted to meet with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates at the Pentagon. The peace activists are associated with the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance (NCNR), and their visit followed a letter to Gates demanding all military forces be withdrawn from Iraq, Afghanistan, and that bombings of Pakistan immediately cease. The action took place on St. Patrick's Day. The violent occupation of Iraq begins it's seventh year this week.

Rząd przy wsparciu korporacyjnych mediów ma prowadzić politykę zera tolerancji wobec ulicznych protestów i rozruchów na tle politycznym; a oddziały prewencji otrzymają, zgodnie z nowymi regulacjami, carte blanche na stosowanie nieograniczonej siły wobec demonstrantów.

Chicago's Anti-Protester Disorderly Conduct Ordinance Ruled Unconstitutional

Chicago, 19.03.2009 07:09

From the newswire: "US District Judge John Grady ruled on Friday [March 13] that a significant part of the Chicago’s Disorderly Conduct Ordinance was an unconstitutional violation of freedom of expression guaranteed by the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Police have repeatedly used the ordinance to harass anti-war protesters.

"The ruling stems from a lawsuit brought by Donald Goldhamer and Robin Schirmer after charges against the two were dismissed in a Chicago court. Goldhamer, Schirmer and five others were arrested on July 2, 2006 after distributing leaflets near the armed forces recruiting booth at the Taste of Chicago Festival in Grant Park."

Business as Usual Disrupted at Hennepin County Sheriff's Foreclosure Sale

United States, 19.03.2009 07:07

Activists, including many foreclosed-upon and homeless residents, converged on Minneapolis City Hall Wednesday to demand that Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek take action to end the foreclosure crisis in the county. After boisterously protesting outside the room where a sheriff's foreclosure sale was guarded by deputies, three activists entered the room, and PPEHRC national organizer Cheri Honkala was  shoved out by a deputy after attempting to bid on a property.

Then, the group went across the building to Stanek's office to demand a meeting. After deputies were uncooperative, the activists moved in, filling the room while others waited with the media outside. After about two hours, a meeting was held between a chief deputy, County Commissioner Gail Dorfman, and five activists representing the organizing bodies: PPEHRC, ACORN, the Economic Crisis Action Group, the IWW, and Homes Not Jails. The officials promised a meeting with Stanek within two weeks.

15 марта - всемирный день борьбы с полицейским беспределом

Belarus, 19.03.2009 07:07

15 марта, в день борьбы с полицейским произволом, минские анархисты провели ряд акций на эту, донельзя актуальную для Беларуси тему.

Беларусь – место, где ментам закон не писан. Под вывеской правового государства действуют десятки тысяч зверей в погонах. ППС, ОМОН и прочие представители милицейской профессии старательно портят жизнь людям, особено молодежи. Избиения и пытки случаются регулярно. Хамство, оскорбление и обращение с гражданами, как с быдлом давно стали нормой. Безнаказанность людей в форме усугубляется от нашего с вами молчания и терпения, от отсутствия солидарности.

Вечером в субботу, накануне 15 марта, на мосту возле второго кольца анархистами был вывешен баннер “ОМОН – ВРАГ НАРОДА”, провисевший до утра следующего дня.

На следующий день группа активистов раздала прохожим около 500 антиментовских листовок на улице Куйбышева, возле Комаровского рынка и кинотеатра “Октябрь…

FMLN Winner in Salvadoran Elections

San Francisco Bay Area, 18.03.2009 07:09

When vote totals came in from the Salvadoran presidential election Sunday, the winner by a slim but significant margin was the candidate of the FMLN, Mauricio Funes. The FMLN website said "Hope won over fear." The FMLN fought fascism in Central America with a military effort that went on for twelve years. A truce was called in 1992, but the extreme right wing remained in power until now. A San Francisco celebration of the FMLN victory is planned for March 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the Women's Building.

Expanded anti-terror squad to silence dissent

“It has been reported that the Army is seeking to expand the Counter Terrorist Tactical Assault Group (CTTAG) based on what they say is ‘a surge in the global war on terrorism’. Yet what they really want is more soldiers for internal ‘terrorism threats’. What are these internal threats? These units have been and will continue to exist to crush domestic political dissent as demonstrated by the police Operation 8 of October 15th 2007” said Justice NOW! Spokeswoman Sally Darity.

Яна Полякова

Belarus, 17.03.2009 23:37

Правозащитница Яна Полякова, недавно осужденная Солигорским судом, покончила жизнь самоубийством ночью 7 марта в Солигорске.

3 марта судом Солигорского района вынесен приговор по уголовному делу в отношении правозащитницы Яны Поляковой. Правозащитницу осудили по части 2 статьи 400 Уголовного кодекса РБ – «Заведомо ложный донос», приговорив к 2 годам и 6-ти месяцам ограничения свободы (так называемой «химии»), а также возмещению «морального ущерба» в размере одного миллиона рублей в пользу потерпевшего участкового милиции Пугачева, который недавно вышел на пенсию.

В ноябре прошлого года резонанс получила история с преследованием солигорской правозащитницы со стороны правоохранительных органов. Яна Полякова сообщала, что за оппозиционную деятельность ее неоднократно задерживали сотрудники милиции. Также сообщалось, что в отделении женщину избивали, а однажды ей чуть не сломали руку. Необходимо добавить, что Яна Полякова являлась члено…
