Many kids in Philly missing breakfast and lunch

United States, 06.04.2009 07:07

At Thurgood Marshall elementary school in Olney, a K-8 school with an enrollment of about 600, more than nine out of ten students eat breakfast in school every day. Compare that to Andrew Morrison elementary just a few blocks away, a school with similar demographics -- a mostly African American and Latino population, 85 percent of which are poor enough to qualify for free and reduced price lunch -- where only about 30 percent of the students eat breakfast at school.

These differences are outlined in a document from the state Department of Education that tracks participation in school breakfast, which is free and available to all students. Read More

Campaigning against Heckler &amp; Koch Weapons in Germany and the UK

United Kingdom, 06.04.2009 03:09

Last month, some members of the 'Notts Shut Down Heckler & Koch Campaign' travelled to Germany. Together with German Peace Groups, we wished to pre-empt the company’s 60th birthday celebrations.

Here in Nottingham, the campaign holds regular monthly demonstrations outside their offices at Easter Park, Lenton Lane, Nottingham NG7 PX. These will continue with a picket on Tuesday April 14th and a special campaign anniversary demo on Monday May 11th [with a mystery guest!].

Heckler & Koch's UK office is NSAF Ltd, Unit 3, Easter Park, Lenton Lane, Nottingham NG7 2PX. Map Google 'Street View'.

Kiilu Nyasha, former member of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, was recently interviewed on a wide variety of topics.

Defending the Community Studies Department at UCSC

Santa Cruz, CA, 05.04.2009 17:09

On Tuesday, April 7th there will be a meeting at 5:00pm at UCSC's Kresge College room 321 to discuss the defense of the Community Studies department. A post on the SC-IMC calendar states, "Proposed budget cuts at UCSC to come into effect July 2009 "disband the administration" at Community Studies, "laying off" lecturers and cutting the Field Study program. This program benefits not only students, but various community organizations in Santa Cruz, all over the state, nation and the world."

Bloodbath on the Columbia: Sea Lions Die Amid Lies and Cover-Up

Seattle, 05.04.2009 16:38

On the Columbia river, between Oregon and Washington, State wildlife "management" agencies are brutally executing sea lions in an effort to appease fishermen, who claim that the sea lions are eating all the salmon. (These fishermen want to "save" the salmon ...for their nets.)

It will take heroic efforts to save the sea lions.

Activists Appeal Conviction, to strengthen First Amendment rights and counter police powers

DC, 05.04.2009 01:10

A small group of peace activists appeared in D.C. Columbia Superior Court Thursday to appeal their conviction stemming from an anti-war protest on Capitol Hill in September 2006. Pro-se appellant Max Obuszewski, from Baltimore stated, presidents have abused the Constitution in times of crisis. For example, the government amended the unlawful assembly charge by deleting the words "under circumstances which threaten a breach of the peace." Or, in order to convict a defendant of unlawful assembly, the government must offer evidence of disorderly conduct or an obstruction of the free use of public facilities.

Despite our being soaked to the skin before we even had our cameras out to shoot the rally in front of the Bank Of New York Mellon, we still managed to find ourselves in a jumpin' little demo that resulted in several arrests in a spontaneous civil disobedience before the protest set off on a march that wound through New York City's financial district, including Wall Street, the Bank Of Amerika and the Notorious AIG.

A 2020 Vision For Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 04.04.2009 05:09

The March 29th episode of the Third Paradigm radio program examines the revenue-raising "solutions" of the California Tax Reform conference that was held on March 19th at Cabrillo College with Bill Monning and Fred Keeley. It also projects the logical outcome of Obama's stimulus package, which takes on more debt to "free up" credit. But it first presents a hypothetical scenario of the year 2020 with employment security, cheap healthcare, housing work exchange, worry-free retirement, and as much free education as you want.

NATO-Gipfel 2009

Germany, 04.04.2009 02:40

Die Proteste gegen den Jubiläums Nato-Gipfel am 03./04. April in Baden-Baden und Strasbourg kommen in die heiße Phase:
Bereits am Montag demonstrierten in Freiburg knapp 2.000 Menschen unter dem Motto "Make Militarism History" begleitet von einem riesigen Polizeiaufgebot unangemeldet durch die Freiburger Innenstadt. Am Donnerstag fand in der Nähe von Strasbourg eine Antirepressionsdemo (weiterer Bericht)statt, die sich gegen die militärische Überwachung und die Schikanen am Anti-Nato Camp richteten. Thema der Spontandemonstration waren außerdem die verhängten Meldeauflagen gegen potentielle DemonstrantInnen in Deutschland. Im Verlauf des Tages wurden knapp 150 Menschen von der Polizei festgenommen.
Bereits bei der Anreise kam es an den Grenzen nach Frankreich zu Problemen. Mit fingierten Ausreisesperren wurden Grenzübertrittsverbote wie schon einige Tage zuvor für die Volxküche (Le Sabot gegenüber vermeintlichen GipfelgegnerInnen (Pressemitteilung des Camps) erteilt. Diese sind inzwischen zum Teil bereits wieder von den Gerichten aufgehoben worden. In der baden-württembergischen Grenzstadt Kehl wurde von Abgewiesenen spontan eine Mahnwache errichtet.
Wenige Stunden vor Beginn der Blockaden und Aktionen gegen das NATO-Treffen in Baden-Baden kam es zu willkürlichen Platzverweisen für das gesamte Stadtgebiet durch die Polizei.
Am Nachmittag kam es wie schon am Tag zuvor zu Auseinandersetzungen in der Nähe des Camps in Neuhof. Dabei wurden mindestens 30 Menschen durch Plastiksplitter verletzt.
Inzwischen wurden die Akkreditierungsverbote für zwei Journalisten vom NATO-Treffen bestätigt.

Hundreds Rally on Wall St.

NYC, 04.04.2009 01:08

Channeling widespread populist anger at seemingly never ending bank bailouts and excessive executive compensation, hundreds of demonstrators converged on Wall St. this afternoon for a rally and march through the financial district, even as a steady rain continued throughout the day.

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

Canarias, 04.04.2009 00:11

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 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.

Unraveling the Card Check Debate

Boston, 03.04.2009 21:09

Sometimes in politics a particular issue strikes at the core of deeper social-economic forces. Card Check - properly named The Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA)- is such an issue. No other recent debate has spurred such passions on two opposite poles: the corporate elite versus labor. The cause of the uproar is the effect it would have on the relationship between these two classes: card check would vastly strengthen the working-class at the expense of the employers.

Foreclose the War Machine - A Meeting to Coordinate Direct Action

Portland, 03.04.2009 02:09

In the next few months, the US military intends to send 17,000 new soldiers to Afghanistan. This will increase by one half the size of their hugely unpopular occupation. Vice President Joe Biden himself has gone on the record to say he expects an "uptick" in American deaths in Afghanistan. The CIA and US military have begun bombing civilians in, and even sending in ground troops into, Pakistan, to much popular opposition from the Pakistani people. The current administration is already preparing to escalate and spread military campaign further into Pakistan. In the meantime, while Obama talks about removing "combat troops" from Iraq, there is no intention to end the occupation of Iraq by dismantling the US military bases. Only approximately half of the US soldiers in Iraq will be removed under this plan, because the rest are not considered "combat troops."

We intend to SHUT DOWN the War Machine, to do everything we can to stop the surge from leaving the United States. To this end, we are calling for a day of coordinated, non-violent civil disobedience and direct action to blockade the GDLS facility in Auburn.

Please attend an information meeting in Olympia, WA, on April 5th 2009 at 1 PM to discuss this plan, our strategy, and building a strong movement to end these wars and occupations. The meeting will be at Capitol Theater Offices: 416 Washington St. (Between 4th and State, Next to the Painted Plate). Room 208 on the 2nd Floor.

End BOTH Occupations - Foreclose the War Machine - Direct Action to Stop the Surge - No administration will end these wars - We, the people, need to end them.

Just one week after being named by the community, Sanctuary Sam's life is in jeopardy

Portland, 03.04.2009 02:09

Only a week ago, sea lion defenders named him Sanctuary Sam. ( Before that, the public knew him, if they knew him at all, as just a number. C586. But some of us knew him better.

Sam has been present on the Columbia for several years, at least. I've watched him thrill tourists in Astoria with his powerful voice and his friendly manner. He routinely sits on the dock there, with his head leaned back in the classic "circus seal" pose, basking in the sun. But when people call out to him, he cocks his head to the side, opens his huge eyes, and looks at them curiously. If they continue to talk to him, he eventually opens his mouth and barks chattily back. He's always been extremely gregarious that way.

I've also seen this guy swirling through the waters near St Helens, often happily laying on his back with his flippers in the air, talking to anyone who will listen. Many of us on the river know him. He belongs out here. And he deserves to live a free and wild life, as do all of the Columbia river sea lions.

If this neighbor of ours is executed by the State, I do not think I can ever forgive the fishermen who clog the waterways and kill all the salmon, whose voices have called for this to happen.
