People's Moratorium turns one year old

Aotearoa, 31.10.2004 20:32

A group of Wellington GE Free activists celebrated the one-year birthday of the People's Moratorium on Friday; descending on ERMA to remind them that resistance to GE remains strong. ERMA are the Environmental Resource Management Authority who rubber-stamp the GE trial process. A 'birthday cake' of compost and birthday card was delivered with a noisy birthday party with drums, party poppers and kazoos.

Meanwhile in Auckland activists visited Crop and Foods, who are conducting G.E onion trials, and dumped 60kg of onions at their door.

'Field Trials of genetically engineered onions, pine trees and cows continue, but there have been no new applications for release since the launch of the People's Moratorium, a year ago today. This is because biotech corporations know that New Zealanders don't want GE and won't tolerate it, said Wellington Anti-GE Action spokesperson, Felicity Perry.



9/11, The Re-appearrance Of Osama bin Laden, And A Country Headed Toward Disaster

Arkansas, 31.10.2004 19:35

I don’t remember when it was exactly, that people started talking about a probable “October Surprise” coming forth from the Bush Regime, but it had certainly become the talk in some circles by late spring and early summer. After all, it was all very obvious. The current leadership of the United States had by that time, afforded anyone with eyes open ample opportunity to see just how power hungry and ruthless it really is. They had lied and deceived us into an unnecessary war, got passed the unconstitutional USA Patriot Act, operated in secrecy, were almost constantly engulfed in scandal, and had begun criminalizing dissent. The only question was, what traumatic event would Bush & Company use in order to further terrify the American public into a sort of submission and thus bring them back into the fold.



Sign vandalism at the County Elections office

Portland, 31.10.2004 19:02

About 9:30 tonight (saturday oct 30), I saw a man ripping down the large "VOTE HERE" signs from the light poles at the Multnomah County Elections office. He had a stack of 2 or 3 other similar signs, and threw them all into the back of his pickup. I was sitting at the light at SE 11th and Morrison waiting for the light to turn. He pulled away from the curb and stopped at the light at 11th and Belmont where I pulled up behind him.

It was a white Toyota Tundra pickup, license plate YCU 964, with Bush/Cheney stickers and a "I'd rather be RIGHT than Politically Correct" bumpersticker.

Anti War Banshees Arrested at Shannon Airport

Ireland, 31.10.2004 12:35

Spent Up To Four Hours Undetected Beside Runway Reciting Names of US and Iraqi Dead Anti War Banshees Arrested at Shannon Airport From The Newswire: In the early hours of Halloween, October 31st, two peace activists dressed as banshees were arrested in the confines of Shannon Airport. Zelda Jeffers and Elaine O’Sullivan, of the pacifist Catholic Worker Movement, were discovered by airport security after constructing a shrine to the war dead near the runway. The two women, wearing Iraqi mourning dress, were discovered reading out the names of U.S. military and Iraqi dead. Elaine O’Sullivan stated: “Many of the over one thousand U.S. military dead personnel killed in Iraq would have passed through Shannon Airport on the way to their deaths. We remember them and the Iraqi people they have killed. We name Shannon Airport as a place of death – a cog in the U.S. war machine carrying out an illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. We have come to Shannon on Halloween, the eve of ‘All Souls Day’ and the U.S. elections, to remember the dead and non-violently defend the living”.

How San Francisco Stopped Harassment of its Critical Mass

NYC, 31.10.2004 12:24

SF Critical Mass went through a yearlong period of police harassment, intimidation, and outright brutality. Dozens of tactics were tested to end the police crackdown on our bicycle celebration. Some worked, some didn't. Following is a brief list of the most effective efforts used to stop the unconstitutional attack on our right to assemble and ride together. Detailed strategies were shared with Portland CM riders on how to stop police harassment at CM, which you can see here.

1. File claims for damages against the city.

2. Arrange for a mass call-in day to the mayor and city councilmembers.

3. File complaints against individual police officers, against police policy for handling the event, and the event commanders.

Wild Oats Closing--Legal Help Needed

Portland, 31.10.2004 07:39

One of the two Eugene Wild Oats stores is closing. While yes, Wild Oats is a corporation, there are still people behind it, local people, our neighbors, friends and family. Wild Oats national is doing great injustice to the people who slaved for the store to make it a success. For example, some people who worked at the Wild Oats store, some more than 15 years, are getting at most 6 weeks of severance pay! How can it be possible for an individual to put out everythnig for something he/she believes in (natural foods) and get screwed so badly?!?!!! Any information you may have regarding previous legal actions is needed. We can't let the corporations hurt us like this, working is an evil paradox of life, the least we can do is hit the corporation hard so maybe it isn't as bad the next time around.

HALLOWEEN 2003 WDC

DC, 31.10.2004 00:20

Disappointed that I would not be going to friends' Otoole & Prouty Annual Halloween Festival in Fairfax VA as I had been planning, hoping and talking about it for almost a month, yet determined, at least, to enjoy some of festivities in the city at 7pm on Friday and almost with 'tears in my eyes' but as I have done during most Halloween seasons I picked up my camera and headed to Dupont Circle. Though very cognitive of the fact that over the past 10-15 years and almost like clockwork every weekend and especially on Halloween, but every holiday as well, and in what I call a form of institutionalized racism, while most would themselves engage in the 'festivities', they'd simultaneously set out to specifically negatively reinforce but control me.



Boo Who?

Tennessee, 30.10.2004 23:29

The repentant Nader voter gang is suggesting we make anti-Nader jack-o-lanterns but have not suggested we make anti-Bush ones?? One has to wonder sometimes how progressives can be so lame. It should be clear that so-called democrat progressives can blame themselves as much as they blame Nader for Bush. Nader and the Greens brought a lot of voters to the polls who voted for Gore. How else would one explain the poll to poll numbers in 2000? Everytime I point that out I am ignored. Now we are at 2004 and Progressives have wasted four years complaining about Bush, blaming Nader and ignoring the political realities that force them into lesser evil politics instead of building a real . A political alternative that can challenge the corporate hegemony that has given us not only Bush but a media and police state that supports him. This election cycle will long be regarded a textbook example of how the corporate funded Democrat Party machine can waltz progressives into a cul-de-sac leaving them without a candidate that supports their views despite the fact that the majority of candidates in the primary did.

October 22 rally in Detroit honors families of police brutality victims

Michigan, 30.10.2004 14:53

On Friday evening, October 22, 2004, the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality (DCAPB) hosted its ninth annual commemoration of the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality. This event was held at the New Galilee Missionary Baptist Church located on Gunston avenue near Gratiot on Detroit's east side.

The event was held in the aftermath of the release of Daron Caldwell, who was unjustly held for three months for the multiple shooting that occured at the fireworks celebrations downtown on June 23. City officials rushed to judgement in their arrest and attempted prosecution of Caldwell because of the efforts designed by Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to create a crime free image for the city in light of the upcoming 2005 All-Star game and the 2006 Superbowl.

Critical Mass Harassment Continues

NYC, 30.10.2004 13:47

Despite days of legal wrangling, NYPD harassment of Crticial Mass escalated last night, with reports that between 33 and 47 people were arrested.

More arrests occurred at the CM after-party, with IMC writers charging that "as of 12:30am, police had apparently unsuccessfully tried to seize control of the Times Up space and were making a number of arrests. Many people in the space or on the street are understandably upset. The police appear to be closing part of Houston St in the process."

Another party-goer wrote: "as we vacated, about 20 of us, cops grabbed their chain slicer and started to cut locks off bikes, even though we videotaped it with the news and even though the federal judge said no."

The conflict between Critical Mass, which is a largely spontaneous, unregulated monthly bike ride, and the City of New York, which since Giuliani has attempted to regulate every last ounce of spontaneity out of the City, appears to have reached a boiling point.

NASA expert: Bush Administration Stifles Global Warming Data

The Bush administration is stifling scientific evidence of the dangers of global warming in an effort to keep the public uninformed about the progress of global warming, a NASA scientist said Tuesday night in Iowa City, Iowa. "In my more than three decades in government, I have never seen anything approaching the degree to which information flow from scientists to the public has been screened and controlled as it is now," James E. Hansen told a University of Iowa audience.
