Ситуация в Германии и Франции по мобилизации на протесты против НАТО

Belarus, 17.04.2009 10:38

С 20 марта Франция и Германия официально приостановили действие шенгенского договора. На границах и в аэропортах этих стран ввёден выборочный пасспортный контроль, для выявления „опасных“ личностей, в предверии саммита. В этом году по оценкам независимых наблюдателей в протестах в Страсбурге и Баден-Бадене планируют принять участие до 25 тыс. протестующих, а для охраны участников конференции планируется мобилизовать до 20 тыс. полицейских. В самой конференции планируют принять участие 26 лидеров стран членов НАТО, а так же возможно присутствие лидеров других стран.

Что же касается протестной инфраструктуры, то вчера, 25 марта, во Фрайбурге (Германия) начал работу конвердженс центр, в котором будут проведена подготовительная работа перед протестами. В частности на базе центра начала работу новая индимедия – linksunten, целью которой является освещение событий связаных с саммитом. Так же в центре планируютс…

Report Back from Portland Tea Party

Portland, 16.04.2009 23:39

Pioneer Square was filled to over flowing this evening with citizens protesting taxes, the bailout, socialism, pork, and demanding, as on one sign among hundreds of others, that the government "redistribute freedom and not wealth." One sign even apologized for voting for Obama.

This was an extremely well promoted and financed event. One speaker claimed that there were 22 of these rallies in Oregon alone, starting in Medford Oregon this morning. Before I left home for downtown, I heard Corporate news sources claim that there were about 500 Tea Party's nation wide, and Laura Ingram on her Conservative talk radio program this evening claimed there were 700 of them nationwide.
This event touched a pulse in America, and it might be the beginnings of a Conservative, if not a Republican resurgence.

Though in the lead up to this nation wide protest organizers claim it to be bipartisan, there was little evidence of any Progressive or Democratic constituency. And, towards the end of the rally, when the organizers recognized the groups who worked to make the event possible, not once was the Democratic Party or any group I could recognize as "left" even mentioned.

There is much common ground here, yet I did not feel the crowd to be in sympathy with the poor, the homeless, the undocumented immigrant. The rhetoric from the speakers emphasized the many problems which brought them all to the Square, yet few if any solutions were offered. There was a general and overwhelming mood of discontent, with constant reference to the fact that "we the people" could somehow solve the problems, if government would leave us alone.

May Day Immigrant Rights Retrospective

Seattle, 16.04.2009 04:23

Mayday 2009 is coming up, so for Indymedia Presents episode #350 we reach into our archive for mayday-related pieces we made in years past, to build interest and participation in the Mayday actions that will happen this year. We first feature our coverage of the 2006 April 10th immigrant march in Seattle. (This piece was an official selection in the compilation Gigante Despierta.) That year immigrants marched in April as a build-up to the largest general strike in the history of the United States. Millions stayed off the job on Mayday that year in Day without a Mexican actions. The idea was that if folks dont like immigrants picking strawberries and washing dishes, then they could try those activities themselves, and see how they liked it then. The Seattle April 10th march, and the Mayday march that followed, stretched for as far as the eye could see, as the immigrant community burst forth in political life. This is a growing portion of the US population and a group with the potential to wield more political power as time goes on. Our piece speaks of the pressures (such as NAFTA) to come to the US, and also of the history of Mayday, which was born in the fight for the 8-hour day almost a century and a half ago. Then we reprise coverage of a great Seattle Mayday in 2003, replete with interviews of Central American immigrants who speak to what Mayday means to people in their countries.

Welt in Spannung

Germany, 15.04.2009 15:41

In den letzten vier Monaten sind in den USA über 2,5 Millionen Lohnarbeiter zusätzlich auf die Straße gesetzt worden. in den USA entstehen Zeltstädte mit Leuten, die kein Dach mehr über dem Kopf finden, wie anderswo Zeltstädte nach einem schweren Erdbeben entstehen.
In Deutschland ist bisher die Arbeitslosigkeit nur wenig gestiegen. Da werden noch Altautos auf Staatskosten verschrottet und Massenentlassungen durch eine Million Kurzarbeiter auf Kosten der Arbeitslosenkasse hinausgeschoben.
Noch sind Banken- und Unternehmenspleiten zahlenmäßig begrenzt, noch haben wir keine Staatsbankrotte gesehen. In Deutschland wird noch häufiger über Lohnerhöhungen als über Lohnsenkungen verhandelt, auch wenn hier Mercedes-Benz mit 2 Mrd. Euro geplanten Lohnkürzungen den Anfang machen will. Noch sehen wir in Westeuropa keine rasche Vermehrung der Armutsbevölkerung.
Mit den wachsenden Krisenfolgen werden auch soziale Unruhen und politische Proteste zunehmen, aber sie werden nicht überall gleichzeitig und nicht in allen Ländern gleichermaßen zunehmen. Die globalen Zentren und Epizentren dieses kapitalistischen Erdbebens versucht der folgende Überblick aufzuzeigen.

They had voices and desires and ideas. All of these things were shared.

Gill nets and fishermen clogging the Columbia today

Portland, 14.04.2009 19:09

Today I counted 71 fishing boats on the river in the tiny span between Sand Island and the mouth of the Lewis River. And, incredibly, prowling the waters near St Helens, I found the Andy Jo, a drum boat, drooling its killer nets into the water. In just this little space... Imagine how many fishermen are out there all together. Just imagine how many lines, how many nets, how many dead salmon, just today.
Is anyone really still wondering where the last salmon have disappeared to? Why the run is late?



HB 2405 Telecoms Sneaking Around Again

Ballot Measure 5-190: Immigrants Win, Wayne Mayo Bigots Lose! 5-190 Down In Flames!

Portland, 14.04.2009 19:09

Last year noted bigot and repressed dick head Wayne Mayo set his sights on higher office, and decided to pave the way with the blood of immigrants. He wanted to capitalize on the redneck, anti-immigrant nature of the right-wingers he pals around with. So he parked his pompous self outside the Scappoose post office, soliciting signatures to get Measure 5-190 on the ballot. He did manage to get it on the ballot, and alas, it passed by a slim margin. But the poorly written, badly conceived piece of hate legislation will never become law. Here is why, and why it matters.



Integrity Now? What happened to Kucinich?

Portland, 14.04.2009 19:09

Although it has been over a year, some may remember that as Kucinich dropped out of the presidential election prematurely because he was afraid of losing his congressional seat, he said he and his wife Elizabeth would be starting a new site for activists called "Integrity Now". This might have impressed Kucinich volunteers at the time, however absolutely nothing has been done toward that effort and the site domain has now returned to the SiteGround Default Server page.

All day we received an incredibly positive reaction from everyone we passed.

Kolejne skłoty do likwidacji?

Poland, 14.04.2009 14:40

Liczba autonomicznych przestrzeni w Polsce może się wkrótce skurczyć. Działający od kilkunastu lat skłot Rozbrat w Poznaniu może wkrótce zostać zniszczony - miasto nie uwzględniło jego istnienia w swoim planie zagospodarowania przestrzennego. Podobny los ma czekać warszawski skłot Elba - właściciel terenu postanowił wyburzyć zajmowane przez to niezależne centrum kultury budynki; ich mieszkańcom grozi eksmisja. Środowiska związane z tymi ośrodkami zamierzaja walczyć o ich utrzymanie.

Demonstracje przeciw prywatyzacji przestrzeni publicznej i antyspołecznej polityce władz planowane są:

UK: masowe aresztowania aktywistów

Poland, 14.04.2009 13:10

Brytyjska policja dokonała wczesnym rankiem w wielkanocny poniedziałek dwóch nalotów na centrum społeczne Sumac Centre i niezależną szkołę Iona przy Sneinton Dale w Nottingham, aresztując prewencyjnie 114 aktywistów kampanii Climate Change i rekwirując dokumenty i sprzęt komputerowy znajdujące się w przeszukanych obiektach. Akcja miała prawdopodobnie związek z planowaną demonstracją pod elektrownią E.On w Ratcliffe-on-Soar - rzecznik firmy stwierdził, że jest ona "celem zorganizowanego protestu", a policja uznała, ze aktywiści planowali akcję bezpośrednią na terenie elektrowni.

Wczorajsze aresztowania to największa policyjna akcja "prewencyjna" przeciw aktywistom ekologicznym w historii Wielkiej Brytanii
