VIDEO: G20, NATO and UK Factory Takeovers

Seattle, 22.04.2009 02:39

The recent meeting of the G-20 brought out large numbers of militant protesters. Seems the economic slump may have started in the US, but now has spread world-wide, which has contributed a heavy working class character to the movement against corporate globalization. We start off episode 351 with the G-20, thanks to Franklyn Lopez, then move quickly to UK workers who took over their factories. Just in time for Mayday, Indymedia presents stories of working class heros, locked in dramatic battle for their futures. Workers of the World Unite! This episode was edited for PepperSpray by Tacoma Joe LaSac.

What's the Matter with the Left Forum

NYC, 21.04.2009 02:09

In its organizational structure and attitude, the Left Forum isolates itself from most social movements. But it also refuses to constitute itself as a living organization. Instead, the preference is to berate all existing forces and implore participants to somehow get their act together. Unless it shifts the way it does things, it risks irrelevance.

Workers @ AT&amp;T Poised to Strike

United States, 20.04.2009 12:38

Job Action Would Be Biggest U.S. Strike in Recent Years - And First Under Obama - IWW/CWA Dual Carders in the Heart of the Struggle 

At midnight April 5, 2009 contracts for most of the component groups represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) at the telecom giant AT&T have expired. After weeks of mobilizing, around 90,000 workers are poised to strike one of the largest and most profitable multinational corporations. A job action by CWA would be the largest and among the most significant labor action in the United States since the UPS strike in 1997. It would also be the first major strike under the Obama regime. The brewing confrontation could set the tone for class struggle in the U.S. for the near future.

On April 8th, buses and carpools from across Northern California headed to Sacramento for the Caravan for Justice II. They came to demand changes in laws and policies such as three strikes, gang injunctions, parole/probation, voter disenfranchisement, the power of police and prison guard unions, the police bill of rights, and other aspects of the California prison industrial complex which continues to grow while budgets for education and community services shrink.

Independent Media Week April 19 - 25, 2009

Rogue Valley, 19.04.2009 20:40

Ashland, Oregon’s 5th annual Independent Media Week will showcase a coalition of independent media producers, local activists and community groups organized around the theme “A well-informed citizenry is a cornerstone of democracy.”

In April 2005, the City of Ashland officially proclaimed its first Independent Media Week during the time when local activists were encouraging Jefferson Public Radio to broadcast Amy Goodman's “Democracy Now!” Activists at the time were also working to launch KSKQ, our local low-power FM community radio station. The keynote speaker at the headline event in 2005 was Amy Goodman.

Every year since the City of Ashland has proclaimed a week in April to highlight independent media. This year at the April 7th council meeting the City of Ashland proclaimed April 19-25, 2009 “Independent Media Week.” This year's keynote speaker at the Friday, April 24 main event is Peter Phillips from "Project Censored"  http://www.projectcensored.org

BTW, to update that 2005 campaign: Jefferson Public Radio refused to broadcast Democracy Now!, but it is heard daily on community radio KSKQ!

OECD report pushes discredited anti-worker ideology

Aotearoa, 19.04.2009 03:10

The Maritime Union says an OECD report on the New Zealand economy is a politically driven document with a right-wing, anti-working class agenda. Maritime Union of New Zealand General Secretary Trevor Hanson says some of the "market oriented reforms" proposed by the OECD report had been so discredited by the recent economic crisis and past history that it was a surprise anyone could suggest them with a straight face. "How dare the authors of this report come out and preach policies that end in casualized jobs, long hours, shift work and low wages for New Zealand workers?" Mr Hanson says it is obvious that New Zealand society is stressed with long hours, low wages and job insecurity creating major negative issues for working people including violence, drug abuse, crime and family breakdown.



Reggae for Blair Peach: Remembering a kiwi socialist and anti-fascist murdered by the British Police

Aotearoa, 19.04.2009 03:10

Thursday April 23rd 2009 marks the 30th anniversary of the murder of Blair Peach at the hands of London's Metropolitan Police. Blair was a revolutionary socialist and member of the Socialist Workers Party, and was an activist with the Anti Nazi League opposing the rise of the National Front when he was killed on an anti-fascist demonstration in Southall. To this day, no one has been brought to justice for his death. Socialist Aotearoa is hosting a night of music, poetry and talks to celebrate Blair's life, and to build support in New Zealand for the campaign to expose his killers. Come to Reggae for Blair Peach, Tom Forde's Bar, 122 Anzac Avenue, Auckland 8pm Thursday April 23rd, 2009

Mass Arrest of 114 Climate Activists in Raid

United Kingdom, 18.04.2009 21:39

114 activists were arrested in a 2am police raid on a community centre and school on Sneinton Dale, Nottingham, early on Easter Monday, 13th April 2009. It is believed that a demonstration was planned at the E.On powerstation at Ratcliffe-on-Soar as a spokesperson for the company claimed that it was the "planned target of an organised protest". The Ratcliffe-on-Soar coal-fired power station is the 3rd largest source of carbon dioxide emissions in the UK and has been previously targeted by activists.

Similar to past police actions, some of the homes of those arrested have been raided while they were held in custody. It has been confirmed that at least 6 homes have been raided in Nottingham and personal paperwork and computers have been seized. A school located next to the community centre where people were arrested was also broken into by police and essential school equipment taken. Activists have now been released on bail, without charges and to re-appear in court in a number of weeks. Legal advice for activists: Police powers to search premises.

Meanwhile, four Dutch activists from Earth First! forced entry into E.On's head office in Rotterdam and occupied a director's office to have a 'serious chat' about the planned construction of a new coal fired power station.

Paul Watson: We Need to Stop Eating the Oceans

San Francisco Bay Area, 18.04.2009 20:41

Captain Paul Watson writes: The Oceans are like the Goose that Laid the Golden Egg. As long as it was alive it laid a golden egg each day but then the greedy farmer decided to kill it to get all the gold inside and found nothing and the Goose laid no more golden eggs because it was dead.... We humans have waged an intensive and ruthless exploitation on practically every species of fish in the sea and they are disappearing. If we don't put an end to industrialized fishing vessels and heavy gear very soon, we will kill the oceans and in so doing, we will kill ourselves.

In Wake of US Supreme Court Decision, Abu-Jamal's Appeal Supporters Mobilize around New Book, Birthday

United States, 18.04.2009 10:07

On April 4, the US Supreme Court rejected former Black Panther and radical journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal's appeal for a new guilt-phase trial. The Court has not yet decided whether it will consider the Philadelphia District Attorney's appeal of two lower court rulings that Abu-Jamal deserves a new sentencing hearing if the death penalty is to be re-instated. This means that if the Supreme Court rules in favor of the DA, Abu-Jamal could be executed without a new sentencing hearing.

In response, Abu-Jamal's lead attorney Robert R. Bryan will be filing a "petition for re-hearing" at the US Supreme Court. Emergency meetings have been held in several cities (1, 2) to coordinate grassroots response, and over 3000 people have signed an online petition in an effort coordinated by anti-death penalty activists from Germany. Photo from December 2008 protest in Pittsburgh, PA.

The rejected appeal (technically called a petition for a "writ of certiorari") was based primarily on the US Supreme Court's 1986 "Batson v Kentucky" ruling which stated that a defendant deserves a new trial if it can be shown that the prosecutor used peremptory strikes to remove otherwise qualified jurors simply because of their race. At Abu-Jamal's 1982 trial, prosecutor Joseph McGill used 10 or 11 of his 15 strikes to remove otherwise acceptable black jurors. He was subsequently convicted of killing police officer Daniel Faulkner. Listen to Abu-Jamal's own response, interviewed by Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio. More Coverage: KBOO Radio, Uprising Radio, and DN! | WBAI | Democracy Now

Abu-Jamal continues to file news dispatches from death row (including John Hope Franklin: The Passing of a Griot and Summitry and Punditry on the G8 meetings in London), and supporters are working to get the word out about his new book, Jailhouse Lawyers: Prisoners Defending Prisoners v. the USA, published by City Lights Books. Events will be held in the US around April 24, which is Abu-Jamal's birthday. In Philadelphia, two supporters were arrested on April 11 while putting up posters for the book release event — read report from Philly IMC. Events are planned in the following cities: Philadelphia (including a Revolutionary Week of Events) | New York City | Oakland | Los Angeles | Boston | Portland | Seattle & Olympia, WA | Houston | Washington, DC | Baltimore, MD | More Info & Updates from Abu-Jamal-News.Com

Con l@s pres@s politic@s, contra la salvaje pol�tica penitenciaria

Euskal Herria, 17.04.2009 23:40

Esta semana, el d�a 17 de abril para ser exactas, se celebra el d�a internacional de l@s pres@s pol�tic@s. Es por eso que se suceder�n protestas y actos por todo Euskal Herria. Por poner un ejemplo, los organizados por Askapena y tambi�n las convocatorias del movimiento pro-amnistia.

Asimismo, marcha por toda Euskal Herria para denunciar los 20 a�os de la pol�tica de dispersi�n. Y s�, son veinte a�os ya desde que esta pol�tica se puso en marcha, pero no son estos los �nicos n�meros. Son 21 l@s pres@s pol�tic@s vasc@s que han perdido la vida en estas dos d�cadas, 16 los familiares y amig@s que han muerto en la carretera mientras iban a visitarles, 267 los accidentes en total. Eso sin hablar del enorme desangre econ�mico que supone la dispersi�n para las familias y amigas de l@s pres@s politic@s. Pero adem�s de denunciar el car�cter cruel y claramente pol�tico de la dispersi�n, el colectivo organizador de la marcha desea tambi�n constatar la ineficacia de dicha pol�tica de dispersi�n, que a pesar de ser capaz de generar sufrimiento se ha demostrado ineficaz a la hora de mermar la capacidad de lucha del Colectivo de Presos Pol�ticos o frenar la solidaridad que miles de personas les demuestran semana tras semana.

  • Convocatorias de Askapena (Bilbo):
    -17 de abril a las 11:30 de la ma�ana frente al consulado de Francia
    -A las 19:30 manifestaci�n que partir� de la sede del PSOE para acabar�con un acto pol�tico en la plaza Santiago.
  • Convocatoria del Movimiento Pro-Amnistia:
    -17 de abril: Movilizaciones en todos los pueblos frente a las sedes de los partidos responsables de la pol�tica de dispersi�n.
  • Convocatorias de Etxerat:
    -Del 14 al 19 de Abril: Marcha contra la dispersi�n por toda Euskal Herria.
    -19 de Abril, domingo: Acto de fin de la marcha a las 12 del mediod�a en Landako, Durango

Tax Day &quot;Tea Parties&quot; Bring Out the Worst of the Right Wing

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.04.2009 19:10

Anti-tax "Tea Party" rallies held in San Jose and San Francisco on April 15 brought out about 500 conservative activists in each city. Although the majority of participants appeared to be white Republicans, contingents of Libertarians and members of the vigilante Minutemen organization also displayed signs. In San Jose about 50 anti-war/anti-racism demonstrators countered the right wing demonstrators. A heavy police presence utilized batons to keep the two groups apart as the two sides faced off.

Sea Lion Bus Demo Report Back

Portland, 17.04.2009 14:39

What a great day for standing up for the sea lions! With the sun shining on us, animal advocates packed the bus called Cool and headed down to Salem today. We came from all over Cascadia -- from Portland, from Eugene, from St Helens, from Colton, from Beavercreek, and from other communities across Oregon. As there was only supposed to be room for 25 on the bus, we had to squeeze together close to fit 30 on board, and others had to make their own way there in separate cars. We went down to the capital to make our voices heard on behalf of some of the most oppressed residents in all of Cascadia. We went to speak up for the sea lions of the Columbia.

We began with an hour-long demonstration at ODFW headquarters. The ODFW is the Oregon state agency responsible for killing the sea lions. They're spending more than a million Oregon taxpayer dollars on this mis-guided program, at the same time that services are being cut to senior citizens, people with disabilities, and children. (Washington State residents are spending an additional $1 million plus on their half of the killing.) They've admitted that the best they can hope for from this program is that it might, perhaps, be "marginally" helpful. More likely, it will not be effective at all. Because, as we all know, it is not the sea lions who are driving the salmon into extinction. It is us.
