New York Activists to Leonard Cohen: &quot;Don't Play Apartheid; Don’t Play Israel!&quot;

NYC, 18.05.2009 16:15

New York activists gathered in front of Radio City Music Hall Sunday night during a Leonard Cohen concert to call upon the singer/songwriter to cancel his scheduled September concert in Israel. The protesters sang songs, chanted, handed out leaflets to concert attendees and produced sidewalk art. The call comes in support of earlier calls by Jews, Palestinians, Israeli citizens and residents of the UK, and coincides with the publication of an open letter by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) calling for protests throughout the cities Cohen is touring.

The Colnbrook blockade

United Kingdom, 18.05.2009 11:28

For the second time in less than two months, anti-deportation campaigners blockaded a detention centre to try and prevent a mass deportation flight to Iraqi Kurdistan. Six activists from the Stop Deportation network locked themselves together on 12th May, using glass and plastic arm tubes attached to heavy concrete barrels, blocking the entrance to Colnbrook detention centre near Heathrow, where some 45 of the deportees were being held. The blockade lasted for over four hours, after which three coaches carrying the deportees left for an undisclosed airport. All six were arrested (two quite violently) for obstruction of the highway.

At least two more sea lions put to death on the Columbia

Portland, 18.05.2009 06:00

http://sealiondefensebrigade.org/wp-content/uploads/dsc_49651-150x150.jpg

We now know the identities of the animals put to death by the state. There were three of them rather than two. They are: C645, C674 and C858... C645 had a name, not just a brand. He was given the name Glider, by the children of Redland Elementary School. C674 was named "Hershey" by the community, in honor of Governor Kulongoski's dog. C858 had been added to the death list only last month, after being observed eating only TWO fish. Clearly, they are not targeting "problem" animals, as they had initially claimed. They are targeting and killing any sea lion they can get.

Once again, we are asking for volunteers to step forward who would like to assist with monitoring. It seems that the killing has not ended for the year after all. We particularly need people to be watching the river at Bonneville dam, and down in Astoria at the sea lion haul out. If you would be interested in helping with this, please contact the Sea Lion Defense Brigade at info@sealiondefensebrigade.org. You can also call Matt Rossell at In Defense of Animals to volunteer as a monitor. That number is (503)249-9996. [ Read More | http://sealiondefensebrigade.org ]

&quot;Let them eat cake!&quot; - NDU sells out clothing workers

Aotearoa, 18.05.2009 00:40

The National Distribution Union has announced that it's response to 186 of clothing manufacturer Lane Walker Rudkin's (LWR) 470 staff being made redundant - (102 in Christchurch, 61 in Greytown, 19 in Pahiatua and four in Auckland) - is to hold a cake stall. LWR is New Zealand's oldest unionised company, a company which in recent years has been forced to endure incompetent management as a result of the break up of Ken and Patricia Anderson, the owners. The bank, Westpac, won't even pay redundancy payouts. The NDU's response to trying to keep jobs in what should actually be a profitable company has been called a "great initiative". It is actually nothing more than a sell out of the people who pay the salaries of union bureaucrats like Laila Harre and Maxine Gay. A real path of resistance would be immediate occupation of all LWR factories and plants and the reorganisation of the company as a workers' cooperative. Even an occupation of a Westpac bank to get the redundancy money is better than baking a cake. The NDU's response has been an absolute disgrace to New Zealand workers.

"Well, with the world economy now looking remarkably like Argentina's in 2001 (and for many of the same reasons) there is a new wave of direct action among workers in rich countries. Co-ops are once again emerging as a practical alternative to more lay-offs. Workers in the U.S. and Europe are beginning to ask the same questions as their Latin American counterparts: Why do we have to get fired? Why can't we fire the boss? Why is the bank allowed to drive our company under while getting billions of dollars of our money?" - Naomi Klien and Avi Lewis in The Cure for Layoffs: Fire the Boss!

Largest Shareholder Barclays and Top Investors Dump HLS

United Kingdom, 17.05.2009 23:40

This week it was announced Barclays and four other large investors dropped all shares in Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS), Europe's largest and most exposed vivisection laboratory. LSR stock owned by institutional shareholders has now fallen to 12%, placing HLS $4 million below the NYSE minimum listing standard for market value (the only stock exchange listing the company, a major target in the campaign to close HLS).

Following a legal challenge against the CEO's proposal to purchase all of the outstanding LSR stock, an intense global campaign and recent repression against SHAC in Birmingham, a total of 797,284 shares have now been sold. Barclays Global Investors, Barclays Plc, Hartford Investment Management Company, Rice Hall James and Associates LLC, Bank of New York Mellon and Wells Fargo sold all their shares, of which over 400,000 were held by previously largest shareholder Barclays.

Chicago Activist Andy Thayer Arrested in Moscow Amid Slavic Pride Crackdown

Chicago, 17.05.2009 06:09

Chicago activist and political organizer Andy Thayer, who was recently acquitted from felony charges incurred from a January 2008 protest against George W. Bush, was one of a group of 40 activists in Moscow who were arrested in a crackdown after attempts to stage a Slavic Pride parade in Russia.

Thayer, who has been providing regular dispatches on Chicago Indymedia from Moscow, has reported on efforts by Russian and Belorussian LGBT activists who continue to organize despite repeated threats and slurs, including those from Moscow's mayor.

The repression of LGBT rights from Russian authorities and local skinheads is nothing new. A Moscow march in 2006 saw considerable numbers of police level more than 100 arrests. Every year since, Moscow City Hall has dismissed permit requests for subsequent marches, and each year's march has been marred by anti-gay violence.

General Internet Security and Posts About Illegal Activities

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.05.2009 02:25

Public service announcement by the SF Bay Area IMC collective: While anonymous posting may seem anonymous, it is easy for the federal government to monitor web traffic even when it is said to be secure by web browsers. Posting from public computers is one way to remain anonymous, but many of those facilities can be monitored and themselves face serious risks if threats or illegal posts are traced back to them.



&quot;If They Knew the Truth, They'd Hate Us Even More&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.05.2009 02:25

Ciaran Dubhuidhe writes: We Americans like to think of ourselves as civilized people. Historically, we have supported our government in war under the belief that our government and our soldiers are honorable and that we do not engage in unjust wars. Ugly things like genocide, torture, naked aggression, raping, pillaging, and scorched earth policies are things that others do, not us. Since we are so good and virginal in every sense, we reason that others hate us only because of our goodness and purity.



NIMBY Group Loses Anti-Day Worker Center Appeal

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.05.2009 02:25

Neighbors of a proposed new location for Mountain View's award-winning Day Worker Center have called in right-wing extremist group Judicial Watch to advise them on "protecting" their neighborhood. They threatened the city council on May 12, saying that by approving a conditional-use permit for the Center the city will face a lawsuit for using taxpayer funds to help what they refer to as "illegal" immigrants. The city council, however, has remained unconvinced by the NIMBY group's arguments.

Portland Indymedia Radio DJ Harassed &amp; Threatened With Grand Jury Subpoena

Portland, 16.05.2009 18:39

ctivists should be aware that a Portland Indymedia radio DJ, Sean Rice, has been harassed recently by the FBI and threatened with federal grand jury subpoena.
On Monday a man approached Sean Rice when Sean left his house to catch a bus. The man addressed him by his legal name claiming to be an FBI agent and wanting to "ask some questions". Sean quickly informed the man that he wouldn't be answering any questions. The man then claimed he "just wanted to talk to him about his rights". Mr. Rice then told the man he would not talk to him and walked away. At no time did the man present any identification proving whether he was a fed or not. It is important to be aware that corporations hire private detectives to harass activists. So this man may or may not be who he says he is.

Wednesday leaving work the same man approached, this time with a woman who did the talking. She started by trying to hail him over, "come here, come here". To which he replied, "No, talk to my lawyer". She then threatened him, "You're only making this harder on yourself. We can do this the easy way or with a grand jury subpoena." He requested her card to give to his lawyer and offered to have his lawyer contact her. She asked who his lawyer was and he, again, asked for her card. "No. Who's your lawyer?" "Stu Sugarman." Apparently Stu's bad ass reputation preceded him and she quickly uttered a nervous, "Ok," and they left;, again without identifying themselves or serving actual subpoena papers.

So just what exactly is a grand jury?

The Indypendent: &quot;WBAI Showdown: Power Struggle Escalates&quot;

NYC, 16.05.2009 05:09

By early April, the station had fallen $128,000 behind on rent for its office space at 120 Wall Street and owed another $75,000 in back payments for its transmitter atop the Empire State Building. According to Lavarn Williams, WBAI’s then General Manager Anthony Riddle renegotiated the lease with Silverstein Properties without notifying Pacifica’s national leadership. Riddle, the station’s fifth general manager in seven years, was removed from his position May 6. Under the revised agreement, Williams said WBAI (and by extension the Pacifica Foundation) faces making two rent payments totaling almost $60,000 in May, two more payments totaling $75,000 in June and two more rent payments by July 25 totaling $45,000 or be subject to immediate eviction if it misses a single payment.

The first check for $29,444.30 is due May 18 and another check for the same amount is due May 25.

Attacks On Tamils Continue - Westminster Bridge Besieged

United Kingdom, 15.05.2009 23:10

As attacks by the national army in Sri Lanka have intensified, so do the protests around the world. After the news of thousands of civilian deaths in Sri Lanka at the weekend, which the UN has described as ‘a bloodbath’, British Tamils began a civil disobedience protest on Monday (11.05.09) in the hope that the British government might put genuine and decisive pressure on Sri Lanka to stop the atrocities it is currently committing. Five hundred began the protest at Parliament Square early in the morning. Thousands more joined them, at which point they moved onto Westminster Bridge and closed it off to traffic. Police officers were taken by surprise. The blockade lasted until mid-afternoon, at which time police resorted to physical attacks on people in an effort to clear the bridge.

More than 300,000 Tamils are currently under siege by the Sri Lankan forces. Aerial bombardments and shelling of civilians are continuing. Children and elderly are dying as a direct result of the aerial bombardment. There has been increased violence in Sri Lanka following the capture of Tamil territory. It is estimated more than 75,000 people have already died in the conflict.
