Still Wild, Still Threatened, Still Fighting - Ecowar in Tasmania

Aotearoa, 07.05.2009 00:40

At the heart of Tasmania's Southern Forests, wild rivers flow through valleys containing forests which evolved from the ancient continent of Gondwanaland. In the valleys of the Styx, UpperFlorentine, Middle Huon, Weld, and Upper Derwent flourish some of the world's oldest and mostspectacular ecosystems. - Still Wild, Still Threatened Campaign Site

4 May: 60 Police have raided camp Florentine this morning to remove road blockades so that logging of the contentious area can begin. An Exclusion Zone has been declared by Forestry Tasmania, to prevent public access to the area. A Hobart man has already been arrested for being in the exclusion zone. More arrests are expected today. [ Report ]

5 May: At 2:30 this afternoon a 26 year old female forest defender was removed from a 45 metre high tree sit by Police Rescue. Police continue to climb trees to remove more tree sits in the area. Logging machinery is expected to arrive tomorrow and stop work protests are expected to take place. [ Media Release ]

6 May: Two activists are being charged with assault despite claiming that they were assaulted by a member of forestry Tasmania. [ Upper Florentine newsblog ]

The Wilderness Society has placed an advertisement in Britain's Financial Times warning European banks they will be "pulping their profits'' if they finance the controversial mill proposed for Tasmania's Tamar Valley. The Tasmanian Forest Industries Association has described the society's action as "tantamount to economic sabotage''. Insiders have told GetUp! that the full-page ad in The Australian on Wednesday has scared banks off the Gunns pulp mill and sparked crisis meetings to discuss the ad’s effect.

On May 5, 2009, Dr. Margaret Flowers, Russel Mokhiber, were among eight activists arrested at a health care hearing of the Senate Finance Committee, in the Dirksen Office Building, Room 106.

Gentechnik: Besetzungen, Mahnwachen und Aktionstage

Germany, 06.05.2009 06:41

Es ist wieder ein spannendes Aktionsfrühjahr gegen Gentechnik - schon vier Besetzungen, vier Mahnwachen und mehrere Aktionswochenenden prägen das Geschehen. Konzerne, LobbyistInnen und die im Filz der Gentechnik verstrickten Ministerien und Ämter jammern um ihren schönen Profitstandort Deutschland. Nach dem Mon810-Verbot und zurückgezogenen Versuchen nach den Aktionen im letzten Jahr sind nur noch so wenige Felder übrig, wie im letzten Jahr befreit wurden. Wird das Land am Ende ganz gentechnikfrei sein? Oder werden Konzerne, mit Steuermillionen gefütterte Firmengeflechte und die platte Staatsmacht einige letzte Felder retten können? Hier folgt ein erster Überblick über die ersten vier Monate des Jahres 2009 ...

May Day Celebrated in Texas and Across the World



The end of the Canadian seal hunt

Portland, 06.05.2009 04:25

Today is a day to celebrate. The European Union has slammed shut the door on trade in the products of the commercial seal slaughter. The Canadian government estimates that losing this primary market will cost Canada's sealing industry $6.6 million (CAD) each year. The hunt brought in less than $7 million last year. Just the promise of an EU ban was enough to drive the prices for seal fur down to $15 (CAD) per skin -- a decline of 86 percent since 2006. As a result, many sealers stayed home. Out of this year's quota of 280,000 harp seals, fewer than 60,000 have been killed so far.

Canadian seal hunt supporters won't give up just yet. With government subsidies still in hand, the sealing industry will be chasing down new markets. The ProtectSeals campaign is working to convince all targeted nations to follow the EU's example. Canadian Senator Mac Harb has introduced his nation's first bill to end the hunt. The ProtectSeals campaign is striving to convince other members of Canada's Parliament to support the bill. [ Read More ]

Condoleezza Rice Faces Unwelcome at Stanford University

San Francisco Bay Area, 05.05.2009 08:40

After a 10-year hiatus, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is back at Stanford University where she is a Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution. Rice has said she's ready for spirited debate, but it is unlikely she anticipated being caught on videotape last week, when she was cornered by a student demanding she explain her role in authorizing torture. This week about 150 veterans of protest, who led the fight 40 years ago to dislodge Stanford University from the War in Vietnam, called on Stanford to sever relations with the former Provost.

From the Port Liberation Front, With Love

Portland, 05.05.2009 06:39

Last night, the resistance continued. Shipments started leaving Fort Lewis around 9:00pm. Scouts were located up and down the I-5 corridor. People were in position and then the HugBots - three people in robot costumes and concrete lockboxes - were unleashed in front of a convoy of Stryker vehicles on the off-ramp to Exit 137 near the Port of Tacoma. They jumped out of a van that came out of nowhere, in the midst of several cop cars and quickly locked down. The van drove off with the back doors still swinging open into the dark of the night.

In one of the most highly militarized places in the entire world, a van and a small group of people took the military and the police off guard. They were surprised. They had no idea what was going on. Imagine, if you will, how the scene would have unraveled if instead of three people doing a blockade there were ten or twenty or more?

The Home Depot in Capitola was targeted on May 3rd with hundreds of stickers and handbills to publicize their involvement in a controversial development project in Patagonia, Chile. The HidroAysen project involves three dams on the Pascua River and two dams on the Baker River that would flood globally rare forest ecosystems and some of the most productive agricultural land in the Aysen region.



Protest Photography Library

Aotearoa, 05.05.2009 04:47

I have been taking photos of protests for a couple of years now and most of them have been sitting on my computer doing nothing. So I am gradually uploading some of my better protest photos to the internet with the goal of eventually providing an accessible library of images for left wing organisations to use. Also I know that many of the photos will be interesting to people that were at these events. In the long term I hope that these photos will help us document our movements.

A Busy Two Weeks: animal testing, duck hunting demo, cats and a chicken

Aotearoa, 05.05.2009 02:11

Until every cage is empty…
Over the last two weeks we have been very busy releasing our first investigation, taking action against GlaxoSmithKline during World Lab Animal Week and the opening of the duck hunting season and helping with many cats and a chicken.

ALA members attended demos organised by Save the Beagles at the Valley Animal Research Centre in Palmerston North and then returned to Auckland to hold demos against GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) as part of our Stop HLS campaign. [ Beagles Report | Auckland Photos ]

This year the 2nd of May was the opening of this years duck hunting season. In deciding what action to take we knew that placards and banners were not going to change the minds of those at the hunting grounds as such we wanted to do something that would reduce that amount of time the hunters had on the water and thus the time they had to maim and kill.

&quot;Чарнобыльскi шлях&quot; 2009 глазами Антиатомного Сопротивления

Belarus, 04.05.2009 19:37

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.

Анархистский Первомай в Минске

Belarus, 04.05.2009 19:37

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.

Сегодня, прикрываясь баснями об экономическом кризисе, капиталисты пытаются…



Thousands March on May Day

United States, 04.05.2009 18:39

People around the world marched for workers' and immigrants' rights on May 1st. In the United States, labor day has been traditionally celebrated in September but since 2006, the immigration movement has brought back the tradition of celebrating international workers day on May 1st in commemoration of the Haymarket massacre in Chicago.

In Washington, DC, the day began with an ICE raid at 6 a.m. One of the ICE officers woke up residents by saying, "Where's all the Hispanic people in this building?"

"Without immigrants this country of ours—because it's ours as well—would not be in any way near as good as it is," said Oscar Chacon, Executive Director of the National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities. "It is because of immigrants of yesterday, immigrants of today, and immigrants of tomorrow, that this nation is indeed still, in spite of all the difficulties, a beacon of hope."

The message of the immigrant mobilization was simple and direct, end the raids and detentions, and establish a new immigration policy based on human, civil, and labor rights.

Police Liberate Animals from Scamps Pet Store

Portland, 04.05.2009 05:39

On Friday, April 10th, Salem Police and Willamette Humane Society responded to a report of animal neglect at the Scamps Pet Center located inside Salem's Lancaster Mall. Officials liberated 2 dogs and a rabbit from Scamps who were found to be living in poor health conditions. Store manager Laura Lien, 59, was cited for animal neglect. Scamps Pet Center at the Lancaster Mall is now being investigated.

Tracy Lee, a former employee of Scamps in Corvallis, Albany and Eugene says, "I'm not surprised that there are only 6 stores left of the dozens that were in business when I worked for them. Yes, they were known for buying from puppy and kitten mills, and a number of animals would die while in the shop. I remember the mutant American Eskimo with the paw growing out of it's chest."

The Resistance Returns to Tacoma and Lakewood

Portland, 03.05.2009 23:39

Thirteen people were arrested last night along various exits and onramps on the I-5 corridor between Fort Lewis and the Port of Tacoma. Some others were detained but released. Looks like everyone will be out of jail today... Just the first night and we were able to mobilize perhaps seventy people in Lakewood from as far away as Seattle, Portland and remote places on the peninsula... Blockades of people popped out of nowhere during the night at various exits to I-5 and took the convoys and the police by surprise... Convoys were successfully blocked, albeit for a short period of time... If we do things right, this will be the first major anti-militarist and anti-imperialist action during Obama's presidency. We can send a clear message nationally that this administration's policies are terrible as the last. As Angela Davis puts it, "... a black face on white imperialism and capitalism... " This round of military shipments, unlike many in the past, places us at a very interesting and crucial point.

Entre todxs pararemos el TAV

Euskal Herria, 03.05.2009 22:40

Las obras para acometer el megaproyecto del Tren de Alta Velocidad en Euskal Herria hace meses que dieron inicio en los tres territorios de la CAV. En Nafarroa a�n no pero ya se cerr� el acuerdo con el gobierno de Zapatero para su financiaci�n. El comienzo est� previsto para el 2011 y los partidos pol�ticos navarros apoyan y aplauden la realizaci�n de esta infraestructura innecesaria para el pueblo que, en la CAV, tiene un coste de casi � 5.000 por cabeza.

Al pueblo navarro tampoco se le ha pedido su opini�n sobre el proyecto as� que AHTGelditu!Elkarlana est� promoviendo la realizaci�n de consultas populares en Nafarroa. Las dos primeras ya tienen fecha y lugar. Se realizar�n en Albizu el 10 de mayo y en Lizarrabengoa el 17 de mayo.

La coordinadora contin�a con su lucha contra el TAV, a pesar de las administraciones territoriales que hacen o�dos sordos a la oposici�n social, que ha ido en aumento y que tratan de criminalizar. La �ltima campa�a, con el lema YO TAMBI�N PARAR� el TAV, ha tenido por objetivo recabar el mayor n�mero de fotos de personas comprometidas contra el TAV con la idea de visualizar la diversidad de dicha oposici�n social. En el marco de esta campa�a se convoca tambi�n a una manifestaci�n nacional en Iru�a. Ser� el pr�ximo 9 de mayo y partir� desde el Parque de Antonutti a las 17.30h.

Boston Bashes Back Against Exodus: Radical Queers Disrupt Ex-Gay Ministry Training

Boston, 03.05.2009 14:09

At 9AM on Tuesday April 28th, somewhere between 50-70 people came to the iconic Park Street Church across from Boston Common to attend an Exodus Ministries training. Attendees watched a video wherein 'former homosexuals' and 'former lesbians' spoke of the power of god to heal 'sexual brokenness' and restore heterosexual desires to the most fallen of souls. During the 'male homosexuality' portion of the training, 'former homosexual' Jeff Buchanan shared his experience of having turned from his homosexual past, as well as the causes of male homosexuality, which include resentment of male authority and lack of bonding with fathers. This had been going on for quite some time when Jason Lydon, pastor of the Community Church of Boston, whom the event organizers had foolishly invited, stood up and informed the attendees of their culpability in the suicides of two eleven year old boys in April 2009, both prompted by anti-gay bullying.

Instead, the National Capitol Immigration Coalition (NCIC) has made May First "their" day. Locally noone else has wanted May First, with its legacy of international worker's of the world unite, so immigration rights have become the exclusive focus of May Day for past few years.

On Rosemary Williams' Birthday, Friends and Neighbors Pack Housing Court; Trial Postponed

United States, 03.05.2009 04:38

After receiving an eviction notice taped to her door last week at the end of the six month redemption period on her foreclosed home, Rosemary Williams showed up at Housing Court at the Hennepin County Government Center Wednesday morning - along with about 50 of her friends and neighbors.

As the defendant at the preliminary hearing, Rosemary was represented by Jordan Kushner and Bruce Nestor of the National Lawyers Guild, who prepared to argue that in addition to disputing some facts of the complaint against her, the eviction would cause a public nuisance to the community and should therefore not be permitted to continue.   This experimental legal defense was met with skepticism by the housing court referee - but a trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday, April 28 at 9am at the HCGC. 

Read More & Video (Video is from 4/22 press conference and hearing) | The trial has since been rescheduled for May 26.
