Уличная вечеринка в поддержку автономных пространств - как прошло

Belarus, 14.05.2009 12:07

P1011570.jpg

Нажмите, чтобы увеличить6 мая 2009 года в Минске прошла уличная вечеринка. Информация о ней распространялась в открытых источниках, поэтому посетили это мероприятие в числе 50-70 человек так же те, кто раньше о подобном даже не слышал.

На поляне на берегу Комсомольского озера, расположилась свободная ярмарка, выпадающая из товарно-денежных отношений: любой мог взять понравившуяся вещь совершенно бесплатно. Действует принцип: то, что уже не нужно тебе, может пригодится другому!

Людей постепенно становилось всё больше и больше. Не слишком слаженно на этот раз сыграли барабанщики из самба-бэнда, но выступление их должно было быть скорее фоном происходящего; затем можно было наблюдать экспрессивный танец “крамп”, вышедший из хип-хопа и американского танца клоуна в начале 90-х, в исполнении энергичных ребят (парня и девушки).
Действие продолжилось рассказом о том, что такое автономные пространства, о минском опыте сквотирования, и о ситуации с некоторыми выселяемыми сквотами, в…

Solidarity Picket for October 15th defendants May 15th

Aotearoa, 14.05.2009 09:42

8:30am - 9:30am outside Auckland High Court The October 15th defendants will be appearing in the High court on May 15th where they will once again have to plead guilty or not guilty. The court case has been moved to the high court as the police are charging several of the defendants with "participating in an organised criminal group". The police are doing this in an attempt to salvage some credibility after the original terrorism charges were not allowed to go forward. This will also be exactly one and half years since the state's 'terror' raids and invasion of the defendant's homes and the community of Ruatoki in 2007. The October 15th Solidarity Group in Tamaki-Makaurau are calling for a morning solidarity picket. This is will the only time (as far as we know) when all the defendants will be up in Auckland this year. Solidarity in the Kulin Nations, Occupied Australia!

&quot;ICE, ICE, Get out of the way, Happy Mothers Day!&quot; -- Protesters Demanded an End to the Raids, Detentions and Deportations

Boston, 14.05.2009 04:24

Boston, May 10, 2009.- Nearly 60 people demonstrated around the Suffolk County Jail in Boston (known as South Bay House of Corrections) in protest for the detention of immigrants in that facility. The signs and the chants indicated what the protesters wanted: an end to the represion of immigrant workers and their families, legalization, family reunification. All this in the context of the commercial celebration of Mother's Day. The prisoners were fully aware of the presence of the demonstrators and banged their cell windows furiously.



Obama's Middle East Imperialism

Boston, 14.05.2009 04:24

The velvet gloves are off and the reality of Obama’s Middle East plans are being revealed: a bare-fisted pummeling of Afghanistan and Pakistan — with Iraq’s fate yet to be determined. The media have been preparing this for months, with incessant talk about the alleged “troop drawdown” in Iraq, the “surge” in Afghanistan and the “immediate threat” that supposedly is represented by Pakistan. It’s now crystal clear that zero “change” will be forthcoming when it comes to U.S. foreign policy, minus a strategic shifting of troops. This fact was highlighted recently when Obama asked for an additional $83.4 billion in “emergency spending” to fight the Iraq/Afghan/Pakistan wars. It must be noted that so-called “emergency funds” were precisely the avenue Bush chose to fight his wars, enabling him to skirt the already-gigantic military budget.

Foreclosure Prevention Action at Multnomah County Courthouse

Portland, 13.05.2009 20:39

A motley crew of 35-40 pissed-off Portlanders disrupted the auction of foreclosed homes by bank-fraudsters yesterday morning at the Multnomah County Courthouse before being removed by Sheriff's deputies from the lobby of the courthouse, some violently. Attendees shouted slogans and made "bids" on properties (e.g., "I bid that you keep people in their homes").
The law-unenforcers outrageously claimed that the courthouse lobby and steps were not "public space", and that they therefore were entitled to grab and shove members of the group away from the building. One deputy said, "I'm the judge" of what's public space.
The banking industry has been obstructing attempts by activists to require pre-foreclosure mediation between themselves and homeowners because such mediation has been shown to keep people in their homes rather than out on the streets, where "unnecessary" people should apparently be.

UCSC Budget Cuts to Affect Graduate Student Health Care Coverage

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.05.2009 19:39

UCSC is seeking to meet budget deficits by cutting health care coverage and benefits to its graduate students, including those with families and dependents. Lisa Sloan, Dean of Graduate Studies and Professor of Earth Sciences, asked the Graduate Student Association to approve cuts to current levels of coverage for the Graduate Student Health Insurance Plan (GSHIP). These cuts could increase the cost of co-pays for doctor visits and emergency care, decrease life-time coverage limits and probably, and most significantly, increase co-pays for prescription drugs, even those taken on a regular basis for chronic conditions.

Portland, 13.05.2009 18:39

An educational forum focused on the ongoing case of incarcerated American Indian activist Leonard Peltier will be held May 20, 2009, at 7 pm, at the Native American Student and Community Center at Portland State University.
Recently, Peltier was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for a sixth consecutive year, in honor of his remarkable success in furthering causes of peace and human rights from behind bars during his 33 years of incarceration.
On the campaign trail last fall, President Obama met with Native American leaders and indicated his willingness to consider clemency or to support parole for Peltier. The May 20th event is part of a nationwide effort to renew support for Peltier's release now that Obama is in office.

Secret City Council Report Now Public

United Kingdom, 13.05.2009 00:54

A damaging report into the 'culture and leadership' at Nottingham City Council has so far been kept hidden in a locked cabinet at the Council House. Classed as 'confidential', the city council has systematically tried every effort to keep the report out of the public domain. In February, Stephanie Pearson, the information governance officer of Nottingham City Council, refused to provide the information requested by a councilor and the Evening Post under the Freedom of Information Act. The Council argue that the information disclosed in the report is 'not in the public interest'. It is also claimed that those seeking exposure of the controversial documents have not demonstrated a 'need to know' of its contents.

We believe that it is not for the City Council to judge whether information concerning their activity is in the public interest or not. Council officers should remember that they are in their positions to serve the people of Nottingham. To ensure full transparency of the activities of our City Council and in the interest of accountability we have decided to publish a direct download link of the full report.

Auckland Workshop: The Revolutionary Ideas of Antonio Gramsci

Aotearoa, 12.05.2009 22:41

It took five years for Mussolini to crush the Italian working class and get away with incarcerating its leaders. At Gramsci's show trial in 1926, the fascist judge sentenced him to 20 years gaol. In a reference to the tremendous impact Gramsci had had on the engineering workers while editing L'Ordine Nuovo and his subsequent leadership of the Communist Party in the 1920s, the judge declared: "we must stop this brain working for 20 years". Gramsci spent the last 11 years of his life in Mussolini's gaol. Socialist Aotearoa hosts a series of meetings on Marxist revolutionaries- this week we look at the great Italian revolutionary Antonio Gramsci and the ideas of Cultural Hegemony.

Blackwater (Xe) Illinois Facility Targeted By Conference, Protest, 22 Arrests

Chicago, 12.05.2009 18:09

The private militiary firm formerly known as Blackwater (now known as "Xe") has been increasingly on the defensive: some of the company's guards face manslaughter charges, and the company lost a key Iraq government contract to rival Triple Canopy (originally incorporated in Chicago).

"Blackwater" North, the company's installation in Illinois' Jo Daviess county, has seen peace activists in the Midwest launch vigorous protest activity in recent years. Activists wrote a new chapter in the struggle against Xe, with a recent "Stop Blackwater" conference and civil disobedience action at the Xe site, which saw 22 people arrested.

Анархистский Первомай в Минске

Belarus, 12.05.2009 12:08

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…

Zionist Witch-Hunt Against Prof. William Robinson, for Comparing Israel to Nazi Germany

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.05.2009 18:41

On, Thursday Apr 30th, students at UC Santa Barbara demanded a meeting with UCSB Chancellor Henry T. Yang. They asked an end to the Zionist Witch-hunt against Professor William Robinson. Robinson has been targeted by off campus organizations because of his forwarding of images that made a historical comparison to the state violence of the Israeli military actions in Gaza with the state violence of the German Nazi Wehrmacht in Warsaw. In both cases large civilian populations were surrounded, cut off from the outside, cut off from supplies, cut off from medicine, and violently targeted.

&quot;Shut Down ICE!&quot; 30 Arrested in Civil Disobedience at Bloomington Facility

United States, 11.05.2009 12:08

There's a signless pinkish building at the corner of American and Metro in Bloomington Minnesota.  Like US immigration policy, this building is hidden in plain sight--visible to immigrants and their allies but ignored by the rest of the nation. This is the local Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility, anondescript place where deportees are held on the last night before they're driven to the airport and sent away.  Sometimes they leave behind families and children; sometimes they return to countries they last saw while still too young to remember.  One woman left her autistic and medically vulnerable son. 

"My father would never get to see me graduate high school," said Nick Espinosa, one of the activists who spoke at today's action in front of the ICE facility.  Espinosa's father came to the US at the age of 18.  Despite years of ordinary employment and participation in society, he was taken away by immigration agents in front of his family. ICE "sees immigration as a statistic," said Espinosa.  "Immigration has a human face."

"If people don't listen to these words then we must act," Espinosa continued.  He would later be arrested during a blockade of the facility.
