Court Upholds Prop Eight - 1,000s Take to the Streets

May 30th: Action Against Management Injustice at U-Haul

Seattle, 27.05.2009 16:42

Marrico worked with U-Haul for nearly 2 years until he showed up for work a few weeks ago and was fired on the spot. Management claimed, without showing evidence and contrary to his own memory, that he had forgotten to put away some padding that a customer had used. Even if it were true, this would not justify the extreme response of firing a good worker.

NOAA: Sea Lion Advocates and Fishermen Find More Common Ground than Expected

Portland, 27.05.2009 10:39

Two prominent Obama administration officials were in Oregon today to discuss salmon recovery. NOAA chief (and former OSU professor) Jane Lubchenco and White House Council on Environmental Quality chairwoman Nancy Sutley came to talk salmon, but pointedly did not allow participation from the public -- indeed, the doors were closed to almost everyone. Despite the incredibly short notice, dozens of people showed up with signs, banners, and lots of spirit.

I had actually expected to meet with some tension from the fishermen who had promised to be there. However, when I arrived and began talking to the other groups, I was pleasantly surprised and amazed at how articulate and well-informed this particular crowd was on this issue. Sea lion advocates and anglers immediately found common ground on numerous issues: All of us care about real salmon recovery; None of us believes killing sea lions is the answer; All of us want to see dams removed from the Snake river; All of us want to see habitat restoration. By the end, we were actually carrying each others' signs -- some of the fishermen carried signs supporting sea lions, and some of us carried their "science not politics" signs.

Gay Shame Protest: &quot;De-Center The Center&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.05.2009 23:45

Gay shame is holding a protest at the San Francisco LGBT Center on June 25th at 6pm. Gay shame writes: Does today's mainstream LGBT movement make you feel like you're lost in an alternate reality? Perhaps even another dimension? Do the things groups like the HRC fight for cause you to feel as if you're going the wrong way backwards through time? Does the thought of straight ally Gavin Newsom's ascendancy to governor give you vertigo?

Boston Anti-War Memorial Day Event

Boston, 26.05.2009 14:11

Boston, Mass. May 25, 2009--Boston Veterans For Peace and Military Families Speakout held their second annual anti-war Memorial Day observance in Waterfront Park on May 25, 2009. Speakers spoke about the devastation of the Iraq/Afghan wars and the terrible toll taken on US soldiers as well as civilians. After the speakers, the names of each Mass. soldier killed in Iraq/Afghanistan were read aloud and a flower was tossed in the harbor water after each name was read. Bouquets of flowers were tossed in the water for the million civilian deaths in the two wars. This anti-war Memorial Day event stood in stark contrast to the many pro-war Memorial Day events held today. To see video click on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktkHND-0ioE

No pagues la guerra: haz objeci�n al gasto militar

Euskal Herria, 26.05.2009 11:26

Para dejar de sostener unos gastos militares sin sentido. Para denunciar p�blicamente los atropellos militares. Para no darles los recursos que ponen en marcha la maquina militar, este a�o de nuevo los grupos antimilitaristas nos animan a realizar la objeci�n fiscal en estos d�as que comienza la campa�a de la declaraci�n de la renta.

A la hora de rellenar la declaraci�n, aunque salga a pagar o a cobrar, se debe presentar un escrito donde te declaras que quieres hacer objeci�n fiscal y la cantidad correspondiente a los gastos militares (calculada cada a�o seg�n los presupuestos del estado) se propone desviarla a alg�n proyecto alternativo de las cada vez m�s organizaciones, sindicatos, ONGs... que a�o a a�o se animan a apoyar la objeci�n fiscal. La justificaci�n de haber ingresado el dinero junto con el escrito declarandote objetor@ fiscal se presentan en Hacienda para certificar esta manera de hacer desobediencia civil.

El gobierno no recorta por ello los gastos correspondientes a los militares, al contrario, cada a�o son m�s grandes, pero por lo menos nos ponemos en marcha para denunciar las guerras y el control en los que se basa esta sociedad.

Massive Hikoi against the Super City in Auckland

Aotearoa, 26.05.2009 00:10

Yesterday around 10,000 people took to the streets of Auckland to oppose the National-ACT place governance of Auckland under the control of one 'Super City'. The planned Super City does not include Maori representation. It also places all of Auckland's assets, such as water and the ports, under the control of one authority - meaning they would be much easier for a right-wing council to privatise. Under a Super City structure only very wealthy candidates will be able to stand because the planned Council Wards are so huge. Squirrel from Resistance Photography has written a report of the demo and made an excellent photo essay. [More]

Tenants Lose Home Due to Landlord Neglect

NYC, 25.05.2009 16:44

Tenants living in rent-regulated apartments lost their homes two weeks ago when New York City deemed the building’s structure unsafe from a collapsing façade. Unfortunately for the tenants – who have been in homeless shelters, staying at friends and given shelter by the Red Cross – the city ordered the front facade completely removed and won’t let the tenants move back in until the owner replaces the façade, which he won't immediately do.

Cindy Sheehan at Peace House

Rogue Valley, 25.05.2009 06:12

Ashland, Oregon - 5/21/09

Cindy Sheehan is an inspirational and almost hallowed figure in the peace movement of the 21st Century, who, when confronted with her son's death while serving the military in Iraq, challenged President Bush at her Camp Casey near Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

But over a vegetarian dinner at Peace House, I found out that Cindy is not an icon to be placed on a shelf and admired, but a down-to-earth, approachable woman who has "just a trace of sorrow in her eyes" as the Jackson Browne song goes, but who also has the intellect, the information and the inclination to be a powerful leader of the peace movement for years to come.



Vets for Peace in Grants Pass Boatnik Parade

Grants Pass, Oregon, Boatnik Parade - May 24, 2009

Lined up very near the front of the parade immediately behind other veteran groups Veterans for Peace #156 marched with a clear message for peace. I didn't hear one derogatory remark or see one middle finger and I think that was the first time I have ever seen this happen when publicly standing up for peace. Yes, there were a few "guys with folded arms" as another VfP marcher pointed out, however all had restraint. One woman's voice from the crowd still rings in my head: "thank you for doing this"--Wes Brain, VfP156

We Don't Need a Cycle Lane, We'll Just Take the Whole Bridge!

Aotearoa, 24.05.2009 01:57

Today was the 50th birthday of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. At 9am, thousands of people attended a protest organised by the Get Across Campaign at the Curran St on-ramp calling for pedestrian and cycle access to the harbour bridge. Wayne McDonald, the Auckland regional director for the New Zealand Transport Agency told the crowd repeatedly he would not let them across, despite the fact that police were standing by to cooperate at his word. Realising that simply asking wasn't going to get results, people began walking calmly around the newly erected chain link fence and straight through the police lines. Thousands of people streamed onto the bridge; walking, cycling and pushing prams, they laughed, shouted and sang their way all the way across and all the way back. Traffic was completely stopped for about 90 minutes. The support shown today for pedestrian and cycle access to the harbour bridge was enormous and will be hard for Transit to ignore. Especially if people show up again next Sunday as many were suggesting! Links: Get Across Campaign | Cycle Action Auckland

15 people arrested for protesting Virginia Congressman Boucher's efforts to gut climate bill

DC, 23.05.2009 20:12

Rep. Boucher's Handouts to Coal Lobby Hurt Working Families WASHINGTON, May 21, 2009-Fifteen concerned citizens were arrested today for peacefully blocking the entrance to Virginia Congressman Rick Boucher's office protesting his efforts to gut strong climate legislation at the expense of American families. Congressman Boucher has driven efforts in Congress to give away billions of dollars worth of free permits directly to coal, oil and other dirty fossil fuel companies under a cap and trade bill. "The problem is Rick Boucher, the victims are American families, and the solution, as proposed by President Obama during his campaign, is a simple and fair polluter-pays cap that solves the climate crisis while rebating consumers," said Mike Tidwell, Executive Director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, who was among those arrested today.
