Sculpture Artist Receives Life Achievement Award

Boston, 29.04.2009 14:09

For the most part, his representationalist sculpture captures and sets forth a message with the force of a sudden wind storm. And in a city held together by threads of promise, the sculpture of the artist Richard Hunt breaks free from formality and brings one quickly into a realm of light, text, and shadow which only folded, hammered, heated and burnished bronzes and steels can do. His work directs, without speaking.

Whaling Ship Sunk by Agenda 21

United Kingdom, 28.04.2009 21:40

On the evening of April 23rd, the Norwegian whaling ship The Skarbakk was sunk by environmentalists in the Lofoten islands, Norway, using the name of a 1992 United Nations Conference on the Environment. The conference detailed action proposed for a sustainable 21st century, with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society promising Norway that if they did not comply with international conservation law, then they would sink their whaling ships.

This was not an empty threat, with Captain Paul Watson supervising the sinking of two ships; the Nybraena in 1992 and the Senet in 1994. The anonymous and covert goup Agenda 21 then took over with the scuttling of the Elin-Toril in 1996. In a communique last week, the activists reported they flooded the engine room of The Skarbakk by using a monkey wrench to open the salt-water intake valve; "to delay the killing season and to protest the continued illegal export of whale meat to Japan."

In a press release by Sea Shepherd, Paul Watson said; "We don't know who they are, and we have no forewarning of their plans, but we do applaud their efforts, these laws must be enforced and Norwegian whalers are in blatant violation of the worldwide ban on commercial whaling."

Campaign against CCTV in Forest Fields continues to grow

United Kingdom, 28.04.2009 16:10

The Nottingham City Council scheme to impose CCTV on Forest Fields is facing increasingly organised opposition. Much of the affected area has been leafletted with anti-CCTV material and campaigners against the scheme attended a consultation meeting last Thursday to make their views known. Many are worried about the intrusive and controlling nature of CCTV and think it would contribute to suspicion rather than strengthening the local community.

Whilst the police and the Council's Area 4 Management claim to be engaging in consultation their language regarding CCTV has always framed it as a necessary development. Ironically, these same people objected to a journalist taking their photos at the meeting, indicating that residents are not the only ones who are concerned about surveillance! The plans have already been scaled down from 5 camera masts in Forest Fields to masts at 3 locations but campaigners vow to continue until it is scrapped.

help fight against local union busting

Portland, 28.04.2009 06:39

Many of you are aware that workers at Laurelhurst Village nursing home on 33rd and Stark have been organizing a union at their facility since late February in order to improve the living and working conditions at their nursing home. Workers had built a majority in support of the union by late March when Laurelhurst management took drastic measures to curtail their campaign. Workers have been written up, suspended, and one employee was fired for union activity. Elizabeth Lehr was fired only three days after demonstrating public support for the union while attending a delegation to the employer to show support for a fellow coworker who was also disciplined for union activity. You can read her statement below.

Сегодня в Минске прошла демонстрация против атомной энергетики, а также в память жертв Чернобыльской катастрофы. На площадке перед Академией наук собралось около тысячи демонстрантов. Группой Антиатомного Сопротивления численностью более ста человек были развернуты баннеры «Альтернатива есть!», «Мы против ядерного реактора» и растяжка «Антиатомное сопротивление». Раздавались листовки антиатомного и анархического содержания. Участники черного блока выкрикивали лозунги против ядерной энергетики и капитализма под бой барабанов самба-бэнда. Около кинотеатра «Октябрь» колонна разделилась на две части. Группа Антиатомного Сопротивления двинулась по улице Богдана Хмельницкого до улицы Якуба Колоса, где участники разошлись в знак протеста против попытки властей навязать свой маршрут.
