Activist DePaul Students Speak on Summer Delegations

Chicago, 27.10.2004 11:05

While summer vacations are generally a time for students to escape their burdens, five DePaul activists decided instead to spend time in the countries of Colombia, Palestine and the Philippines.

This Thursday come listen to reportbacks by Matt Muchowski and Katie Williams who spent time in Colombia with the SINAL TRAINAL union which is attempting to organize Coca-Cola workers despite harassment and murder by Coca-Cola funded death squads. They also met with workers from the oil workers union, USO. The USO recently won a national strike. Matt and Katie were also able to meet with a variety of human rights and peasant organizations.

The following Wednesday Ben Meyer and Gihad of DePaul’s Students for Justice in Palestine will talk on their separate experiences. Both DePaulians went with a group that are working with youth who are affected by the Apartheid Wall. Gihad was also able to travel through several refugee camps, documenting the suffering of a people who’s home is occupied by an agressor army.

On Tuesday November 9, Jon ____ who is a member of DePaul’s Asian Cultural Exchange, spent two months travelling throughout the Philippines. Jon visited many rural villages, learning about the ongoing effects of the longtime U.S. military presence in this small island country.

Michigan Indymedia to produce special elections coverage for Michigan and Ohio

Michigan, 27.10.2004 02:27

One of the reasons Bush was able to steal the election in 2000 is because everyone was waiting for the television to tell them the answer. This time we're watching the elections without the corporate filter.

The Michigan Independent Media Center (IMC) is teaming up with WCBN-FM Ann Arbor to mobilize coverage of the November 2 elections and we need your help.

The MichiganIMC will be a grassroots, non-corporate voice documenting possible voter disfranchisement, fraud and intimidation that may occur on November 2 (N2), as well as popular responses to injustices at the polls and other election-related protest activity. MichiganIMC is aiming to facilitate coverage of news from Ohio and Michigan, as well as national news.

8 Arrested for Protesting Paul Bremer in Grand Rapids

Michigan, 27.10.2004 00:17

On Monday evening a crowd of approximately fifty people marched to the Amway Grand Plaza to protest and disrupt a speech being given by the former “dictator” of Iraq, Paul Bremer. The event, a $150 a plate fundraiser, was sponsored by the World Affairs Council and was closed to both the general public and the press.

Several protestors attempted to enter the building in order to disrupt the speech and give voice to local opposition to the Iraq war. The first attempt to get in the building was met with a line of hotel employees and police officers. The protesters where kept from entering the building and three people were arrested on charges of “trespassing”. The group loudly jeered the arresting officers and continued to occupy the sidewalk in front of the hotel. Two protesters were able to slip past and get into the lobby only to be told to leave by a GRPD officer. Despite their decision to comply with the officer’s command, one of the two was arrested for trespassing. While the protest continued in the front of the hotel, four determined individuals brandishing drums went around to the parking structure and attempted to enter the building from there. While going through the pedestrian bridge, the four drummers were tackled, arrested, and charged with “trespassing” and “failure to stop”. After they were forced to the ground and handcuffed, a security guard commented tothe police "Did you get all those rascals?"

Fianna Fáil's &quot;De Valera Day&quot; Interrupted By Anti War Protest / Ennis Judge Insists 2+2=5

Ireland, 26.10.2004 23:31

Never mind the L&H - Here's the real Bollox Two Anti-war activists interrupt Fianna Fáil ceremony by unveiling banner and heckling high profile party members. Commenteer: There hasn't been an "immediacy clause" for the necessity defence Mary is using since 1997, when the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act amended the Criminal Damage Act (1991). Two Anti-war activists interrupt Fianna Fáil ceremony by unveiling banner and heckling high profile party members. Questionable behaviour from Youthful FFers follows. In other breaking news a Judge rules that objectively observed cause and effect reality be discounted when it comes to Shannon Airport. Oh if this all seems a little fucked up - Don't worry - Terry sez it's all ok because his nephew is in the US Military . . . . Mary Kelly Vs The State Trial Updates Two Anti-war activists interrupt Fianna Fáil ceremony by unveiling banner and heckling high profile party members. Last Sunday marked the first annual "De Valera Day" in Ennis Co. Clare the event was organised by Ógra Fianna Fáil in Clare after Bertie Ahern announced at the National youth Convention that there would be a De Valera day in Ennis every year. The celebrations culminated with a march of Local F.F. Cumainn from O Connel square to the Peoples Park where a Statue of Eamonn De Valera stands infront of the court house wall. As the ceremony was beginning two local anti war activists stood above the gathering on the court house wall and unveilled a large banner reading "U.S. MILITARY OUT OF SHANNON." and one of the activists began to heckle the speaker by shouting anti war slogans and jibes.A number of high profile Fianna Fáil members includeing the Defence Minister Willie O Dea, Minister O Cúiv, Junior Minister De Valera were standing directly below the protesters. "The Soldiers of Destiny" quickly dispatched four able bodied young men in Suits from Ógra Fianna Fáil who raced up to the courthouse in an effort to silence the two protesters. They came into the courthouse car park and dragged the two down from the low wall while trying to take their banner by physical force and push them out of the carpark. The protesters stood their ground while a photographer from the Clare Champion recorded the fracas. The members of Ógra Fianna Fáil threathened to call the Gardaí. At this point one of the activists informed them that that their actions in trying to prevent the protest by physically accosting the pair and attempting to steal the banner were the only possible criminal events that had taken place. The activists were subsequently left to continue the protest and the four party members quickly returned to the gathering below where they proceeded to call the Gardaí. A few minutes later two Gardaí arrived in a squad car but did not take an immediate interest in the anti-war demonstration. The Gardaí only spoke to the protesters at the very end of the event to tell them that they "didnt mind them being there but if you continue to shout I will arrest you for a breach of the peace". The heckeler in question asked the Garda if he would consider arresting the members of Fianna Fáil who were shouting back. The Garda did not respond. The F.F. ceremony then ended and the two activists left. http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/oct2004/ffbloodforweb.jpg

Protest at UK's &quot;Guantanamo Bay&quot;

United Kingdom, 26.10.2004 19:57


Britain continues to hold 14 foreign nationals who have never been charged with any offence. The supposed evidence against them remains secret. They were never questioned by the police. They have not been put on trial.


These men are detained under the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, which allows the Home Secretary to detain indefinitely any foreign nationals if he has 'reasonable suspicion' that they have links with 'international terrorism'. At hearings last year, the government acknowledged that some of the 'evidence' could have been obtained by torturing detainees elsewhere, e.g. Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib.


On Sunday 4 April over 200 people gathered outside Belmarsh Prison in south east London to protest against the indefinite internment of the 14 prisoners, and to demand the repeal of the UK's anti-terrorism laws. A wide range of people were present, from Muslim leaders to Sambatistas, from Green Party activists (including the deputy mayor of London and a London MEP) to Turkish communists, from Lawyers to anti-racism campaigners. Besides a number of speeches there was also samba, theatre and an MC doing poetry. Photos 1 | 2.

EFF, UCIMC Challenge Secret Court Order

Boston, 26.10.2004 17:44

Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) attorneys filed a motion to unseal a secret US federal court order that led to the seizure of two servers hosting several websites and radio feeds belonging to Indymedia, a global collective of Independent Media Centers (IMCs) and thousands of journalists. The motion seeks to discover which agencies and governments are responsible for the seizure in order to hold them accountable. In their motion, EFF attorneys argue that "the public and the press have a clear and compelling interest in discovering under what authority the government was able unilaterally to prevent Internet publishers from exercising their First Amendment rights." They argue further that secret court orders circumvent due process, undermine confidence in the judicial system, and deny an avenue for redress. "When a secret order results in the unconstitutional silencing of media, the public has a right to know what happened," said Kurt Opsahl, EFF Staff Attorney. "Freedom of the press is an essential part of the First Amendment, and our government must show it had a compelling state interest to order such an extreme intrusion to the rights of the publisher and the public..."

34 Million Friends of UNFPA Needs More Friends

Madison, 26.10.2004 11:45

In July 2002, President Bush ignored the recommendations of a blue-ribbon panel of population experts and rejected a bipartisan Congressional agreement that would have provided $34 million to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The Bush Administration withheld another $25 million in 2003 and $34 million more in 2004. The Bush administration's withdrawl of U.S. funding is estimated to have resulted in 2 million more unnecessary pregnancies each year in impoverished countries, 800,000 induced abortions, 4,700 maternal deaths and 77,000 infant and child deaths each year in these countries. In response to the Bush administration's reversal, two concerned U.S. women, Lois Abraham and Jane Roberts, began contacting friends and urging them to send $1 to support UNFPA programs. In the months that followed, they established a national grassroots campaign extending across the country, eventually calling it "34 Million Friends of UNFPA".

Die Truppen werden von der privaten Sicherheitsgruppe Search, ebenfalls aus den USA, befohlen. Die neuesten Restriktionen nach La Loma einzureisen, ein 5000 ha gro�es Gebiet, das t�glich benutzt wird, um Feuerholz und Heilpflanzen zu besorgen, waren Anlass zu einem neuen Vorwurf von Seiten der indigenen Guaran� Gemeinde.

NYC Files Lawsuit to Stop Critical Mass

NYC, 26.10.2004 01:17

New York City filed a lawsuit today in an effort to stop the monthly critical mass ride. They are asking a judge to grant them an injunction enjoining "all other participants in Critical Mass bicycle rides form engaging in conduct that requires a permit without having first obtained such a permit." This of course begs the question: does riding a bike require a permit? Critical Mass has been a feature in New York City for nearly a decade, but over the last three months the city's commitment to stopping the ride has deepened since they set their sights on riders at the August Critical Mass which coincided with the start of the Republican National Convention.
