Report on My Arrest at Mittleman

Portland, 02.04.2009 19:39

A Vietnam vet arrested for walking on the sidewalk at the Mittleman AIPAC demonstration by cop who obviously slept through h.s. history class when they were covering the Constitution—especially the First Amendment. And the Mittleman folks who evidently slept through that presentation also.

There I was among some good folks having fun and making a point to the people going into the AIPAC meeting. I was thinking about going home on the bus and wanted to say goodbye to some friends when I was told that I could not cross a driveway that ran on the sidewalk into the street. I told the cop that they could not do that unless I was blocking traffic. I went to go across and was pushed back by a cop and then I tried again and was arrested. The officer who arrested me was angry about something because this was the roughest I've been handled thus far. I was hooked up to little earl (oxygen bottle on wheels) and still got arrested. I was not planning this and was disappointed that I could not talk the police out of an order that was unconstitutional.

Carnivorous Colorado “Asset Forfeiture Bill” Postponed Indefinitely

United States, 02.04.2009 17:37

March 27, 2009 — HB09-1238 if passed, would have been a Forfeiture Field Day for Colorado Sheriffs. Police would no longer need a conviction to Civilly Forfeit a person’s property. Public resistance was fierce.

HB09-1238 would have opened the door for police to target business and homeowners for Civil Asset Forfeiture in “poor communities” where crime rates are higher. Poor neighborhoods, schools and community services dependent on property taxes could have been economically impacted by dropping real estate values, the probable-result of multi-family and other investors frightened away by the HB09-1238 “no conviction needed” to forfeit property law... read more

&quot;El capitalismo no está funcionando”. Fuertes movilizaciones contra el G20 en Londres.

Canarias, 02.04.2009 13:10

Indymedia Londres está en ebullición. En la ciudad se está desarrollando durante estos las jornadas de movilizaciones contra la reunión del G20. En su web tenemos acceso a un relato casi en tiempo real desde las calles la ciudad. Además el proyecto Anticapitalistas.net está traduciendo sobre la marcha todo la información ofrecida por Indymedia Londres al español. En estas crónicas somos testigos una vez más del modo en que la fuerzas policiales reprimen violentamente la protesta pasiva y pacífica de miles de personas que se reúnen contra las injusticia y desigualdades del sistema-mundo del capitalismo globalizado y su régimen intolerable.
La ciudad de Londres se encuentra militarizada, se despliegan en ella desproporcionadas medidas de in-seguridad para infundir el miedo en la población, que pone a prueba su capacidad de reunión e intenta hacer un uso libre del espacio público. Participando y siguiendo el evento a traves de la red podemos apoyar desde Canarias esta nueva cita del movimiento global, que nos atañe a todos.

Bajo el lema “Put people first” (poned a la gente primero) unas 40.000 personas marcharon el sábado pasado por el centro de Londres en una multitudinaria y colorida manifestación. Ayer, 1 de abril, miles de personas participaron en el “Día del Idiota Financiero”, consistente en cuatro marchas que cruzaron el distrito financiero londinense, conocido como la City, convergiendo a las puertas del Banco de Inglaterra.
Cargas policiales, y 23 detenciones por el momento, no impidieron que los manifestantes colapsaran totalmente la zona. Se produjo además la ocupación de las oficinas del Royal Bank of Scotland, y de forma paralela a estos bloques, una “critical mass” (biciletada) recorrió la City, contribuyendo al caos en la zona, al tiempo que activistas mediambientales levantaron un “campamento climático” en el mismo distrito para denunciar lo insostenible e inviable del sistema capitalista.

G20 in London

Germany, 02.04.2009 02:39

In London hat am 1. April das Treffen der G20 begonnen. Die zwanzig wichtigsten Industrie- und Schwellenländer beraten an zwei Tagen über einen Ausweg aus der weltweiten Wirtschaftskrise, die bereits jetzt dramatische Ausmaße angenommen hat.
Ein breites zivilgesellschaftliches außerparlamentarisches Bündnis versucht mit Aktionen auf die Ursachen der Krise aufmerksam machen und fordert Veränderungen. Im Vorfeld wurde von der britischen Regierung über die Medien versucht, die Proteste zu diffamieren, um Menschen an ihrem Recht auf öffentlichen Protest zu hindern.

Offiziellen Medienberichten zu Folge kam am Rande der Aktionen gegen das G20 Treffen ein Mensch aus bislang ungeklärten Umständen ums Leben. Bisher gibt es noch keine offiziellen Stellungnahmen zu diesem tragischen Zwischenfall am Rande der Tagung

In den Abendstunden hatte die Polizei damit begonnen, das 24-Stunden-Klimacamp im Zentrum von London zu räumen. Dabei wurden nach Indymedia-Berichten mehrere Personen verletzt. Am frühen Donnerstag Morgen war das Camp geräumt.

Public Meeting: Migrant Workers, the Economic Crisis and the Unions

Aotearoa, 02.04.2009 01:40

7.30pm, Tuesday, April 7, Trades Hall. 147, Great North Rd, Grey Lynn Recently there have been decisions by companies to make NZ workers redundant while continuing to employ migrant workers on temporary visas. There have been calls by both the Labour Party, National and some unionists for these migrant workers to be laid off first. The immigration service has revoked the work visas of some workers who kept their jobs. Migrant advocates have raised concerns that racist sentiments are being fostered and ask the question why migrant workers shouldn’t have their rights protected. New Zealand-born or permanent residents ask why they should be sacked when temporary visa holders keep their jobs. This raises questions on how unions should be approaching migrant workers when there may be conflicting claims for support from different groups of workers who are their members.

Londyn: Trwa Antyszczyt G-20

Poland, 01.04.2009 16:41

W Londynie rozpoczął się szczyt G-20 - ministrów finansów 19 państw oraz Unii Europejskiej. Od kilku dni trwają protesty przeciwko spotkaniu. (Rzym, Londyn, W sobotę pod hasłem "Put people first" przemaszerowało ulicami Londynu 35 000 osób.

Jednocześnie władze Londynu i Wielkiej Brytanii podjęły działania mające na celu zastraszenie aktywistów i utrudnienie im dotarcie na miejsce. W weekend aresztowano 5 osób na podstawie Ustawy o Zwalczaniu Terroryzmu. Służby kolei zostały poproszone o donoszenie na policję o podróżujących aktywistach

Także Uniwersytet Londynu Wschodniego próbował nie dopuścić do organizacji Antyszczytu, ostatecznie zdecydował się na zamknięcie uczelni do piątku rano (źródło). Studenci i pracownicy uniwersytetu zapowiadają okupację, w celu umożliwienia organizacji Alternatywnego Szczytu.

Aktualizacja 12.00
W ramach antyszczytu odbyły się liczne protesty, akcje i demonstracje. Zanim jeszcze do nich doszło, policja zaczęła przeszukania i fotografowania ludzi. Mimo pokojowego charakteru marszy policja prowokowała starcia, otaczając demonstrantów oraz blokując im drogę, a także używając gazu łzawiącego. Doszło do zamieszek m. in. w pobliżu Royal Bank of Scotland. Aktywistom udało się dostać na dach banku. Dalsze informacje wkrótce.

Is 'Washington' Winning?

DC, 01.04.2009 04:31

...too many inside-the-beltway environmental and climate groups since Obama won the Presidency and the Democrats, are moderating their tactics and their demands, scaling them back to gain access to high-level White House and Congressional leaders, who themselves are being impacted by Republican intransigence and fossil fuel supporting Democrats. It’s an old, familiar story which has played out innumerable times on other issues in the past. And it’s a very big problem for the low-income people of the world, most of them people of color, who are most vulnerable to the more destructive storms, floods, droughts, wildfires, famines and sea level rise that we’re already seeing as the atmosphere heats up.

Community television can help fill the void left by a collapsing media system.

The deadline to comment at the FCC expires in less than 36 hours [April 1st]. Please make sure that the commission hears from the public about the importance of local media.

BNP candidate &quot;would revel at causing some havoc&quot;

United Kingdom, 31.03.2009 17:09

Councillor Lewis Allsebrook, who is running for the party in the upcoming European elections, has said he "would revel at causing some havoc" in Brussels. In a series of bizarre outbursts on his many blogs he has also called Church of England readings of the Bible "normally twisted and evil" and claimed that there is "a ring of darkness around Nottingham" that the Labour party would call "Diversity".

Meanwhile, in Sutton in Ashfield, the BNP's fundraising fish and chips dinner at the Nag's Head, featuring "light and sound effects plus cinema-graphics", was spoilt by an anti-fascist demonstration.

Chicago Opposition to 2016 Olympics Bid Ramps Up

Chicago, 31.03.2009 02:09

Chicago is one of four finalist cities for the 2016 Summer Olympics, though Chicago's bid for the thirty-first Summer Olympiad has drawn controversy among Chicagoans. The Chicago 2016 committee has hired the controversial PR firm Hill & Knowlton, and surveys of Chicagoans show a degree of skepticism over Chicago. Despite promises to keep Chicago tax funds out of any payment for the Olympics, the city and mayor have evidently broken that promise.

If history is any guide, should Chicago win the bid, Chicagoans have economic disaster and a trail of human rights and civil rights abuses to look forward to in the wake of Olympics. Some Chicago community groups have objected to the Olympics, while others sought community benefits agreements with the city, and even protested within City Hall.

The stakes will be raised in on April 2 when the International Olympic Committee visits Chicago for a week-long visit. No Games Chicago, a coalition of Chicago communities, is organizing opposition against the Olympic bid.

White Unity? It's Bonehead Against Bonehead in the &quot;White Pride&quot; Scene

Portland, 31.03.2009 01:39

On April 11, 2009, the white supremacist group "East Coast White Unity" (ECWU) plans to host a neo-nazi gathering in Boston, MA named "Patriot Action 2009". The co-sponsor of this event is Volksfront International, a racist skinhead organization founded in 1994, which has a presence in several US states as well as chapters in Canada, Australia and Europe. Although the Boston event is intended as a display of unity between fascist groups, anti-fascists have discovered plotting and betrayal behind the scenes of the white power movement, the extent of which many event organizers and scheduled attendees might not be aware.



'God Hates Fags' gets counterdemos at Fairfax High

DC, 31.03.2009 00:11

A report from Virginia! In Virginia, the Westboro Baptist Church started off its tour by first visiting Fairfax High School. Most of the counter protestors expressed confusion at this choice of venue, as Fairfax High School has not done anything newsworthy with regards to the LGBTQ community. It was later revealed that Westboro chose the high school as a target because of Fairfax High School's Rebel mascot; Church members claim that Fairfax High School was an example of how America rebels against god. Police at Fairfax High School were nervous and on-edge, but no altercations occurred. The Westboro crowd then moved to George Mason U to protest that school's Pride Week. The five WBC members were met by a diverse crowd of counter-protesters numbering in the low hundreds. Police at this event were out in even greater number, but their disposition seemed more bored than anything else.
