CDFA May Have Underestimated Toxic Danger of LBAM Pesticides By One Million Times or More

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.03.2009 16:39

Evaluating the health effects of past and future pesticides applied on and around people to combat the Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM), three state agencies concluded the potential danger was low because they incorrectly divided instead of multiplying. In their analysis, the agencies divided by the thousands of acres sprayed, when they should have multiplied by the same number of thousands. If only 1,000 acres were involved, the peoples' exposure was as much as one million times greater than reported by the state agencies.

The Indypendent Issue 133: Battle in the Bronx: Labor Takes A Stand In Hard Times

NYC, 26.03.2009 04:39

Workers striking at the Stella D’oro Biscuit factory in the Bronx have been at it for seven months, fighting back against a wealthy private equity firm that is demanding wage cuts and the elimination of overtime pay and sick days, as well as losing one week of vacation and four holiday days. The firm, Brynwood Partners, has also said that it wants the employees at the factory to pay 20 percent of the cost of a company health plan.

“As soon as they get to the table, the company gives the union reps a big presentation about how bad the company is doing, how many millions they are losing. I was ready to cry,” says Mike Filippou, the workers’ representative at their union.

Continuing, Sarah Secunda reports, “What both the strikers and Brynwood had supposed a quick and easy fight has evolved into a seven-month battle. Shortly after the Stella D’oro workers walked out, Brynwood made its first move by hiring scores of strikebreakers. Local 50 responded to Brynwood maneuvers with a call to boycott Stella D’oro ‘scab cookies.’”

Where Did Government Put Your NSA-Wiretapped Phone, Fax and Private Email Communications?

Boston, 25.03.2009 14:09

In 2008 Telecoms were granted government immunity after they helped U.S. Government spy on millions of Americans’ electronic communications. Since, Government has not disclosed what happened to NSA’s millions of collected emails, faxes and phone call information that belong to U.S. Citizens? Could those wiretaps perhaps illegal, become a problem for some Americans? Neither Congress nor the courts—determined what NSA electronic surveillance could be used by police or introduced into court by the government to prosecute citizens.

Parliamentary scrutiny of political policing

United Kingdom, 25.03.2009 00:10

With only ten days to go before the massive protests against the G20 summit taking place in London, the Parliament's Joint Select Committee on Human Rights accused British police of being heavy-handed, misusing counter-terrorism laws and anti-social behavior legislation when dealing with demonstrators.

"The right to protest is a fundamental democratic right and one that the state and police have a duty to protect and facilitate,", said Andrew Dismore, Labour MP for Hendon and chair of the committee. "

After a year of inquiry, the seventy page report by the Joint Select Committee on Human Rights raised serious concerns about the police forces ability to distinguish appropriate use of the powers they are given. The committee complained that police been routinely using "legal powers not designed to deal with protests such as anti-social behaviour legislation and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997".

The report was damming about police abuse of stop and search powers to intimidate, unjustifiable seizures of personal property, and improper detention and containment of protesters. The committees chairman said, "The state must not impose restrictions unless it is necessary, and proportionate, to do so. That is a high threshold. The presumption is in favour of protest without state interference."

Need your help monitoring sea lions

Portland, 25.03.2009 00:09

Have a little free time during the week and want to spend it on the Columbia river? Sea Lion Defense Brigade are seeking volunteers to record any hazing, trapping, or killing of sea lions on the river. Any video recorded could go to protecting these creatures, if you're interested, this would be the time to help.

Sea Lion Defense Brigade is looking for people to monitor the government trapping sites intended to trap, relocate a few, and kill dozens of sea lions. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) and the Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) do not want people to witness or record these events.

The situation currently:
Fishermen and government employees are violently hazing the sea lions at the Bonneville Dam (40 miles east of Portland on I84) everyday. Two traps are set up by the dam and are visible from the Washington side of the Columbia River. Two California sea lions have already been put to death by lethal injection and another 83 are on the list of execution. Another trapping and branding site is in Astoria, OR.

Just over a week ago a report was made to parliament into the abuse of police powers during the climate camp protests at Kingsnorth in 2008. The report and accompanying video documented systemic abuses of power including blanket stop and searches, arbitrary seizure of property, and a campaign of psychological intimidation which included sleep deprivation through helicopter overflying late into the night, mock night and dawn raids by tooled up riot police, and the infamous 'Flight of the Valkyries' incident.

And So the “Change” Begins

Boston, 23.03.2009 21:09

Finally, we have change in Washington, D. C. Entering into this year with the words of my father, “Obama is our new president, and we need to give him a chance,” I am trying to do just that. The problem for me, though, is that as much as I would like to believe we are going to get something we can believe in with President Obama, I know Senator Obama’s voting record. So the question on the table is, will we see change we can believe in, or will it be a replay of the Democratic victory of Congress in 2006? That remains to be seen. As we begin the “Obama Era,” are we seeing the changes we were promised?

Минск: акция солидарности с греческими анархистами

Belarus, 22.03.2009 23:37

20 декабря, около полуночи, группой анархистов был атакован РОВД (полицейский участок) Центрального района г.Минска. Вход в здание и прилегающая местность были забросаны дымовыми шашками. Дым заволок всю территорию участка и прилегающую проезжую часть. Вот слова одного из участников:

«Наш товарищ из Греции был хладнокровно убит. Ему было всего 15 лет. Не важно, какие именно полицейские это сделали, они одинаковы во всех странах. Их функция – защищать награбленное богатство и привилегии власть имущих. И они не остановятся ни перед какой жестокостью. Своей акцией мы преследовали две цели: проявить солидарность с греческими товарищами и всеми жертвами ментовского террора, а также дать понять мусорам, что за каждое покушение на анархистов и любых социальных активистов, они получат ответные радикальные действия. В этот раз это были лишь дымовые шашки. Греция, мы с тобой!»

После акции анархистам удалось благополучно скрыться.

Новогодние поздравления от НацБанка и МВФ

Belarus, 22.03.2009 23:37

Прогнув спину под требованиями МВФ белорусские власти девальвировали национальную валюту на 20,5%. Вопреки предновогодним увещеваниям официальной пропаганды, которая говорила о 5% девальвации во всем 2009 году, рубль обвалили резко и стремительно вечером первого января. Во имя “здоровья и процветания” белорусской “экономики” население было обворовано на кругленькую сумму в один момент. То, что власти пошли на такой шаг говорит не только о том, что ради получения кредитов МВФ, большая часть которых наверняка осядет в карманах крупных чиновников и лично А.Г., они не посчитаются ни с чем, но и ясно показывает их отношение к нашему “народу”. Власти никак не ожидают хоть какого-то народного возмущения. Нас держат за немое быдло, которое проглотит любой пинок, любое унижение со стороны властьимущих и с радостью отдаст последнюю копейку любимому президенту.

Интересно, что в отличии от прежних “реформ” властей, которые били по незащищенным слоям населения, сегодняшний подарочек затронет все…
