Rossport Resistance Intensifies Ahead Of Arrival of Solitaire

United Kingdom, 07.06.2009 20:39

On the evening of Monday the 1st June, dredgers and accompanying boats returned to Broadhaven Bay to begin work on the off-shore pipeline for Shell's Corrib Gas project in County Mayo, Ireland. The pipe laying ship, the Solitaire, is expected to arrive within the next few weeks.

The boats have met stiff resistance from people at the newly formed Rossport Solidarity Camp. There have been attempts to dismantle the causeway at the Shell compound and numerous water based actions against dredging work . On Tuesday night the crane on one of the dredgers was occupied for over 10 hours, halting work for this period.

The camp is currently well occupied and the area seems set for another summer of action... Last year, the pipe laying ship, the Solitaire, was forced out of Irish waters with no pipeline laid. The time frame for pipeline work is limited; if resistance can be sustained for enough time pipeline work can be halted again. The camp is calling for people to go to Mayo to support the struggle against Shell.

The Indypendent Issue 136: Taken for a Ride: Why the MTA Is Broken

NYC, 06.06.2009 22:09

Many New Yorkers, upon hearing that the Metropolitan Transit Authority was threatening to hike fares up by 23 percent and cut service that would eliminate two subway and thirty-five bus lines, shook in their boots.

How could the MTA do this in a time of economic crisis, when New Yorkers are retrenching and tightening their purse strings?

While the drastic service cuts and huge fare hikes were toned down in a plan recently passed by Albany, the MTA’s problems don’t end there.

The Indypendent takes a look at the MTA and why it’s a broken agency, with reporting done by Danny Valdes and Arun Gupta.

Valdes and Gupta write, “The next time you purchase a monthly Metrocard, which is slated to increase to $89 at the end of June, think about this: Almost one-third of the money you spend — about $29 — will go to service the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s massive $26.8 billion debt.

This simple fact indicates why the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is in perpetual crisis. The MTA will spend nearly $1.5 billion to service debt in 2009, and it projects debt servicing will swallow up an average of more than $2 billion a year from 2010 to 2012.

Wiley Norvell, communications director for Transportation Alternatives, says the reason for this debt load, reportedly the fifth largest of any state or local government body in the United States, is because the MTA pays for improvements “on a credit card.” Norvell explains that “the city and state have stopped contributing to the capital construction,” leaving borrowing as the main source of funds for new transit projects.

The MTA breaks down expenditures into operating and capital. The capital budget pays for expanding and building subway lines and stations, purchasing new subway cars and buses, maintaining signals and communications and related activities. The operating budget includes salaries, health and pension benefits, fuel and electricity and cleaning trains and stations.”

Obama=Bush, Activism=Terrorism: Environmental, Animal Rights Activists Targeted as &quot;Eco-Terrorists&quot;

DC, 06.06.2009 21:10

What began under George Bush continues under Barack Obama - targeting dedicated activists with "one of today's most serious domestic terrorism threats," according former FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterterrorism John Lewis before a Senate panel in May 2005. Called "eco-terrorism," it grew out of the 2001 USA Patriot Act that created the federal crime of "domestic terrorism" and applied it to US citizens as well as aliens. (Editorial comment: This has gone on since before 9/11 and Obama has done nothing to change it even after right wingers murdered Dr Tiller for performing abortions)

Peace camp established at Raynesway, Derby

United Kingdom, 05.06.2009 17:09

Campaigners opposed to nuclear weapons have set up camp opposite the Rolls Royce Factory on Raynesway, Derby. They are demanding that the factory, which produces engines for nuclear submarines, be converted to non-military projects.

This is just the latest in a series of protests at the site, organised by various organisations. There have been a number of large demonstrations at the site and various attempts to disrupt work there. In April last year, ten activists were arrested after a blockade of the facility. In October, eight were acquitted.

From Stone Wall on: Going back to go Forward The Childhood of the Revolution

Portland, 05.06.2009 03:39

It is indeed hard to escape it. Though the mainstream "straight" media pays it no heed, the gay media is abuzz. This summer marks the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. What makes Stonewall significant? Was it the first queer voice of the modern era? Certainly not, during the Weidar republic there had been a brief shining moment when significant strides had been made in the city of Berlin (this of course ended very badly, the rise of Adolf Hitler changed the cities "civil union" registry an easy way to identify, locate and round-up large numbers of what was the first modern queer rights movement. Though some fled and even a few waited out the war in hiding in Germany itself (for example the DaDa artist Hannah Hoch). It wasn't even the first time that the subject of gay rights had been advocated. The sisters of Bolita, and the matachine society had been "respectably" (and with all due respect to the immense bravery of those early advocates) quite ignorably picoting in DC, and doing the "letter writing" thing. No, what made Stonewall special, what makes it the Day we remember was that it was the day when queers not only advocated for their rights but refused the model of hetero-superiority. Rather than try to persuade the "big America" that they were deserving of human rights, the Queers of Stonewall stood up to the Cops in the streets of New York and REFUSED to be anything less than human.

Preparations for Calais No Border Camp taking shape

United Kingdom, 05.06.2009 00:40

Initiatives from the UK, France, Belgium and Germany are currently preparing a protest camp against border controls in Calais, France. The camp, which will take place between 23th and 29th June, will include a transnational demonstration on Saturday, 27th June. The callout describes the aims of the camp as "highlighting the realities of the situation of migrants in Calais" and "challenging the authorities on the ground, to protest against increased repression of migrants and local activists alike." The camp mobilisation in the UK is carried by the No Borders UK network, which calls for the freedom of movement for all and an end to all migration controls.

“Mung Xia K Je Ja Jeng!”—We Want Justice : Community Members Rally In Response To Fong Lee Verdict

United States, 04.06.2009 15:38

250 Hmong community members and anti-police brutality activists rallied in St. Paul on Saturday afternoon, less than 24 hours after a rural, all-white jury found that "excessive force" was not used in the 2006 shooting of unarmed Hmong-American Fong Lee. Lee was shot eight times in the back by Minneapolis police officer Jason Anderson. Allegations that a gun was planted by Lee's body were ruled irrelevant to the case. Judge Paul Magnuson instructed the jury to “use their everyday life experiences” in their decision, noted several court witnesses. The judge also read the verdict while Lee's family were at lunch, so that the family heard the verdict from a reporter.

Racist Radio Host Hal Turner Arrested

For almost a decade it appeared as if something was protecting the offensive right wing radio host Hal Turner from law enforcement holding him to task over his outrageous racist threats on various ethnic groups and public officials. The tide has finally turned, because as of June 3, 2009 4:00 PM Hal Turner has been residing in a New Jersey jail cell, arrested by the North Bergen NJ police for making a public call for the shooting of lawmakers and an ethics officer in the state of Connecticut. Only a few days ago, Turner posted a photo of of Dr. George Tiller with the word "GOTCHA" over it.

Citizens Win Decisive Victory over Wal-Mart

Rogue Valley, 04.06.2009 03:40

"This is a real victory for the citizens of Medford,” Holen said. “It just doesn’t make good sense that Wal-Mart should be allowed to create traffic gridlock near the South Gateway and dump the costs of fixing it all on the backs of the taxpayer."

Holen added, "I would also like to say that I was really deeply disappointed in the way the city SPAC treated MCRD and other citizens who testified before them on this Wal-Mart matter over the years. We were never treated with respect or common civility, and felt belittled by them. I hope that this decision will not only change the way the codes are interpreted, but will also serve to remind this Commission that it needs to treat all those who come before it, not just the developers and power brokers, with dignity and courtesy.
