Police told to &quot;Behave&quot; at Smash EDO Mayday Street Party

United Kingdom, 02.05.2009 19:09

Smash EDO's Mayday! Mayday! Street Party on 4th May looks set to be the next stop on the summer of rage. The mobilisation has been linked firmly to a new wave of resistance against global capital. A map has been published showing the location of EDO's key investors and business partners in Brighton. The list includes highstreet banks, BP, American Express and Mcdonalds. The message is clear, EDO cannot operate in a vacuum; it is propped up by the state and a network of global corporations.

Despite all this the police seem to be firmly on the back foot after the media backlash, triggered, by the killing of Ian Tomlinson, against police violence and repression at the G20. Sussex Police have been told to 'behave' by Chief Constable Richards who fears that “People’s confidence in policing has been shaken by things they have seen on their TVs and read in their newspapers". All this must be rather difficult for Sussex police as they have been gearing up for some serious repression of Smash EDO for quite sometime. Dick Barton, a Sussex Police officer seconded to the Home Office who was responsible for training Iraqi police recruits in Basra and Baghdad, has been given the dubious honour of coordinating investigations of 'crimes against EDO'. Past police tactics have included following 'organisers', supporting a dodgy injunction, engaging in ridiculous conspiracy cases, attempting to cultivate informers and attacking mass demonstrations

Sussex police, desperate for information, have written to people they perceive to be organisers, saying that the policing of the demonstrations will not be repressive if organisers negotiate with the police. Smash EDO responded, in an open letter, giving the example of the Camp for Climate Action who engaged fully with the Met before their G20 protest but were still subjected to brutal attacks. The police have told the Argus that they plan to target suspected 'ringleaders'. The Gold commander for Mayday! policing has taken to posting appeals for information on Indymedia.

There will be a gathering of the Anti Militarist Network on the 2nd and 3rd of May. The gathering will discuss building cooperation between anti-militarist groups and plan mobilisations against the DSEI arms fair and the NATO parliamentary assembly later this year.

PORGERA IN FLAMES: Mining Multinational Ordered Military Force burns down hundreds of homes in PNG

Aotearoa, 02.05.2009 02:40

Hundreds of homes in the Porgera valley of Papua New Guinea are being set aflame. Local human rights organizations in Porgera claim that these fires are part of a strategy to clear people out of the way for the expansion of Barrick Gold's Porgera mine. On April 27th, without prior warning, the indigenous land owners of the villages surrounding Barrick Gold’s Porgera open pit mine were violently evicted by a police and military operation with 200 troops. “Operation Ipili” was launched during the middle of the day to allegedly make way for the expansion of a Barrick gold mine. This effective State of Emergency in Porgera was motivated by situation reports presented by Barrick (PNG) Limited, according to Laigap Porgera Member of Parliament Phillip Kikala. Households of third generation landowners were purposefully razed to the ground, causing residents to flee for fear of their lives. According to eyewitnesses, eighty houses in Ungima, two houses in Yokolama and four houses in Kulapi had been torched within the first 2 days of the operation. By April 30, community reports put that number at close to 600.

An Alternative Explanation for the &quot;Health Emergency&quot; in Mexico

Boston, 01.05.2009 14:09

As many are beginning to notice, the number of deaths attributed to the swine flu in Mexico has been greatly exaggerated. The first sign that something was amiss should have been the absence of information on the identities of the deceased. Missing were the normally present stories on the tragic lives of the victims. The second sign that something was amiss should have been the impressively small number of attributed deaths outside of Mexico. Despite all the hype, we are now finding out that this strain of swine flu is largely benign. How could such a small story have enveloped the world and caused global panic? The only real disaster has been memetic. The virus that threatens us is not a physical virus, but a memetic virus: the false rumor of a pandemic.



Анархистский Первомай в Минске

Belarus, 01.05.2009 14:07

Анархисты Минска отметили первомай песанкционированной акцией в ТЦ "Корона". Колонна из 40 человек под бой барабанов самба-бэнда под двумя красно-черными флагами и с растяжкой "Потребляй, работай, сдохни!", прошлась по залу торгового центра, скандируя речевки и раздавая листовки. Ошалевшая от неожиданности охрана не препятствовала движению колонны и, плетясь в конце, пыталась задержать оператора. Посетители торгового центра приветствовали нас улыбками и охотно брали листовки. Акция продлилась не более двух минут, после чего все активисты беспрепятственно покинули здание и рассосались на близлежащих переулках.

Первомай традиционно отмечается анархистами всего мира, как день неповиновения и рабочего сопротивления. Более ста лет назад наши товарищи отдали свои жизни в борьбе за сорокачасовую рабочую неделю, что рассматривалось ими как временное достижение в борьбе рабочих против капиталистов нанимателей.

War Resister, Benji Lewis, Speaks Out

Rogue Valley, 01.05.2009 01:40

Benjamin (Benji) Lewis was honorably discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps in spring 2007 after serving two tours of combat duty in Iraq during his four years on active duty. After he was discharged he moved to Corvallis, enrolled at Linn-Benton Community College and got a part-time job at a local restaurant.

In October 2008, Benji received notification that he was being involuntarily recalled to active duty. On May 18, 2009, Benji is supposed to report to Camp Pendleton—instead, he will be holding a press conference in Corvallis to publicly resist reactivation.

Leading up to the press conference Lewis is touring the state of Oregon, making public appearances to explain why he is refusing involuntary recall. As part of the tour he'll be making the following appearances in the Rogue Valley:

Friday, May 1, at 1 pm at the monthly meeting of Women's International League for Peace & Freedom, Ashland Public Library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd, Ashland.

Nottingham is not stupid

United Kingdom, 30.04.2009 15:10

Last Friday saw the convergence of a number of environmental protests in Nottingham. The regular critical mass was Coal Caravan. They rode past the Broadway cinema, where the Nottingham Not Stupid festival was celebrating the opening of environmental film The Age of Stupid. The riders finished at the Sumac Centre, where the Demo Project put on an evening of entertainment.

The Coal Caravan left for the site of Shipley opencast coal mine in Derbyshire on Saturday morning. It is continuing to a number of sites threatened by the industries of coal extraction and power generation in Yorkshire and the North East. Campaigners' aims are to talk to local people, organise bicycle powered films and events, hold public discussions and displays, and link with groups from different areas to help strengthen isolated campaigns.
