Go See 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist'

DC, 02.11.2004 03:42

Don't miss great political theater, by the Rorschach Theater troupe, at Casa Del Pueblo/Calvary Methodist Church, through November 21, 2004. This remake of Dario Fo's satire from 1960's Italy, on the investigation into a political assassination of an Anarchist by the Italian police, and the cover-up by government officials, is strewn with references to color coded terror levels, My Pet Goat, Abu Grahib, mixed with Marx Brother's slapstick.

Ruling on Challengers at Ohio Polling Stations

Michigan, 02.11.2004 02:40

Today, two federal judges ruled against a fifty year old Ohio law allowing political parties to challenge voter eligibilty at the polls. The rulings only allow for poll workers to challenge a voter's eligibility. Appeals have been filed by the Ohio Republican Party, as well as others.

Australia's Dismal Report Card on Press Freedom - Reporters Without Borders

November 3rd Nationwide Day of Action

Santa Cruz, CA, 02.11.2004 01:51

Over 30 cities across the nation are mobilizing for a time of popular outrage and widespread non-cooperation if Bush is elected, if the elections are canceled, or if there is overt election fraud again. No matter who wins, we will be uniting to open up a new political space to define democracy as grassroots and participatory.

What if on the day after the presidential election people from all walks of life across America mobilized in their communities to go beyond voting and demonstrate our visions for a truy democratic society? Because the crisis of our democracy did not start with Bush and won't end with Kerry, the Beyond Voting campaign is calling for our election year debate to expand beyond Democrats versus Republicans to the larger issue of whether the U.S. will be a Democracy or an Empire. No matter who wins, we will be uniting to open up a new political space to define democracy as grassroots and participatory.

A New IMC,, Launches with Special Elections Coverage

Santa Cruz, CA, 02.11.2004 01:34

On the eve of what will be one of the most important elections in U.S. history, the Indymedia network announces the launch of a new and critical website for gathering the news and views of ordinary people across the country and around the world.

With its mission of publishing independent, on-the-ground reports from the people who experience the news most directly, will amplify the voices of those most impacted not only by the elections process, but also by the policies of either a Bush or Kerry administration.

The US IMC website centers around a syndicated wire of all featured articles published by participating local US-based IMCs, including Santa Cruz Indymedia. As with all Indymedia sites, the US-IMC's open publishing newswire empowers people to become the media by posting their articles, photos, videos, and audio clips directly to the website's wire. But the US-IMC's main function is to make the news that is published, culled and edited to local IMC sites relevant and accessible to a broader audience.

Blackbox Voting: Voter Machine Hacking may have happened

Portland, 01.11.2004 22:30

MONDAY Nov 1 2004: New information indicates that hackers may be targeting the central computers counting our votes tomorrow. All county elections officials who use modems to transfer votes from polling places to the central vote-counting server should disconnect the modems now.

There is no down side to removing the modems. Simply drive the vote cartridges from each polling place in to the central vote-counting location by car, instead of transmitting by modem. "Turning off" the modems may not be sufficient. Disconnect the central vote counting server from all modems, INCLUDING PHONE LINES, not just Internet. In a very large county, this will add at most one hour to the vote-counting time, while offering significant protection from outside intrusion.

It appears that such an attack may already have taken place, in a primary election 6 weeks ago in King County, Washington -- a large jurisdiction with over one million registered voters. Documents, including internal audit logs for the central vote-counting computer, along with modem "trouble slips" consistent with hacker activity, show that the system may have been hacked on Sept. 14, 2004. Three hours is now missing from the vote-counting computer's "audit log," an automatically generated record, similar to the black box in an airplane, which registers certain kinds of events.

No matter who wins, resistance will continue

Michigan, 01.11.2004 21:34

As we stand at the brink of what is shaping up to be a highly contested and chaotic presidential election, it might be healthy to step back for a minute, take a deep breath, and remember an important fact: people in this country and around the world are engaged in acts of resistance every minute of every day and no matter who wins these elections, resistance to oppression will continue unabated.

Everyday, from Iraq and Palestine to South Africa to Detroit and Highland Park, people are fighting an imperial system that seeks to obliterate them. We should be honest enough with ourselves to admit that the conditions which oppress so many in this country and throughout the world will not substantially change no matter which of the two leading candidates succeeds in capturing the US presidency.

Caravan for Juarez Women Succeeds in Raising Awareness of 400 Murdered

Portland, 01.11.2004 18:17

Tucson was the final event of our 12 city tour on the Caravan for Justice for the Women of Juarez that began in Seattle on October 18 at the University of Washington. On most of our stops, the response was standing room only and very supportive. We sold nearly all the tee shirts, gave away thousands of post cards and much information. Surprisingly, the smallest turnouts were in L.A. and Phoenix. The efforts made by each host city were truly wonderful displaying much solidarity, love and sorrow in raising this very critical issue. Altars, candles, photos of murdered young women, slide shows of Juarez and Chihuahua, art exhibits,poetry, music and mourning were common themes thruout the journey. Rain followed us all the way to Arizona giving a fresh feel to each big, crowded city.

Ramona lost her daughter, Sylvia Elena Rivera Morales,16, in l995, when she was found 2 months after disappearing by a man caring for his animals in the mountains. Sylvia was a student and also worked part time in a shoe store. Her eyes were carved out, her face scraped off, she was raped and killed. Ramona, whose husband died 3 months after her daughter's death of pure sadness, has been seeking justice for nearly 10 years. The police have mistreated her and many other mothers. Many innocent people have been tortured into signing confessions and jailed. An Egyptian, Shariff, has been charged with Syvia's murder even tho the judge stated there is not enough evidence and the accused claims his innocence. It is a multifaceted tragedy that threatens all of us if we fail to act in stopping more murders.

Still, this doesn't mean that I enjoy actually living in a Lewis Carroll story -- specifically, the Queen Of Hearts' court scene -- and can't make it stop, nor do I enjoy the sensation of being trapped in an SNL sketch that never ends, and can't find the remote.

OPB spreads disinformation about Measure 33

Portland, 01.11.2004 16:44

Colin Fodenvenzil reported on Measure 33 this morning. He talked with supporters and advocates then he interviewed the opposition by talking to head of the Oregon District Attorney's Association (Brad Berry?). The head of the ODAA claimed that if Measure 33 passed, the provisions in the Measure allow sick people to have up to 6Lbs of Marijuana. Then he claimed the federal DEA 6Lbs is enough marijuana for a sick person to smoke 2 joints, 24 hours per day, every day for a year.

Math check = 2 x 24 x 365 = 17,520 joints
Gram check = 28.25 (grams/ounce) x 16 (ounces/LB) x 6 = 2712 grams
2712 grams / 17520 joints = .15 grams / joint or more than 6 joints per gram.

If I were an undecided voter, this film would make me want to vote for Kerry. Really old footage of him shows that he at least had a conscience back then! The major premise of the film was that Kerry and others protesting the Vietnam war dragged the war out and made life harder for the servicemen, especially POWs. This is positively absurd. What is better for servicemen than bringing them home to their wives and children?

It goes on to insinuate that POWs were treated even more badly BECAUSE of coverage of war protests.... And that the POWs suffered a brutal blow to their morale from people protesting the war.

Rackspace says that they were confiscated by the FBIU bnut is not allowed to give out more information. After a week, the hard disks resureface, but everyone denies having anytyhing to do with their disappearance. Who requested the confiscation of the hard disks, and why? Twenty days later, no answer has been given. Inquirers disobey their own laws, violate territories and rights; auithorities of several countries (United States, Great Britain, Itgaly, Switzerland) deny all responsibilities and contracdict one another...

Por la paralización del Tren de Alta Velocidad

Euskal Herria, 01.11.2004 13:41

Hablar de neoliberalismo en Euskal Herria es hablar de precariedad laboral y de grandes infraestructuras. Una de estas infraestructuras es el Tren de Alta Velocidad.

El proyecto del TAV ha sido y es contestado desde el inicio por diversos organismos sociales y populares. La última gran acción contraria contra este proyecto será la manifestación convocada por la coordinadora de organismos contrarios al TAV "AHT GELDITU! Elkarlana" para el próximo día 6 de noviembre en Donostia. Previamente a este acto se han reralizado, durante el mes de octubre, una serie de actividades: marcha montañera desde Irun a Astigarraga recorriendo futuros lugares afectados, organizada por la Asamblea contra el TAV; una cadena humana en Errenteria, organizada por AHT GELDITU Elkarlana; y una marcha en bici en Tolosa, organizada por el Gaztexte y la Gazte Asanblada.

Standardizing Early Childhood Education?

Portland, 01.11.2004 08:29

In Washington State Governor Locke's administration is proposing new benchmarks for young children. The Early Learning and Development Benchmarks represent new risks for Washington's children. Since the benchmarks were required under federal mandates, all the nation's children face these risks.

The first risk is that the tools themselves may be overly simplistic or too complex to be useful. This risk can only be evaluated in the context of the actual benchmarks, which will be made public on November 8.

Another risk is that the tools will be presented as value-neutral, when they cannot be anything but based on values. All educational practice reflects what is culturally valued for children to learn and to experience. That fact that the tools will reflect values is not a problem - but deciding whose values to reflect can present lots of problems.

'THE FOURTH WORLD WAR' comes to California

Santa Cruz, CA, 01.11.2004 07:59

While American airwaves are crowded with talk of a new war – narrated by generals and filmed from the noses of bombs – the human face of war is rarely seen. THE FOURTH WORLD WAR is a powerful new film from the makers of 'This Is What Democracy Looks Like', 'Zapatista', and 'Black & Gold'. It weaves together the stories of movements against empire from Palestine, Iraq, Chiapas, Argentina, South Africa, South Korea to Quebec City and Genoa.

The product of over two years of filming, The Fourth World War is a new kind of film for a new world. The intensity and immediacy of its images are beyond anything the mainstream media can shoot, the intimacy and passion of its stories are beyond anything it can feel. Directed by the award winning New York-based Big Noise Films, and narrated by Tony Award winner Suheir Hammad and Singer Michael Franti of Spearhead, it is a radical story of hope and human connection in the face of a war that shatters and divides.

[ The Fourth World War - a big noise film I VIEW TRAILER ]

"I think THE FOURTH WORLD WAR should be the center-piece of all political education for left activists in the present period. It really is that good."

Why I'm going to Florida

Santa Cruz, CA, 01.11.2004 06:19

This weekend I’m traveling to Florida to help beat Bush on Tuesday, November 2nd. I’ll be volunteering with America Coming Together, one of a number of nation-wide organizations that has mobilized thousands of volunteers to convince undecided voters in critical swing states to vote against Bush.

Notice that I haven’t said I’m going to work on the Kerry campaign. I’m not a big fan of John Kerry, or the Democratic Party for that matter. I wanted to be in Boston in July to protest the Democratic National Convention, where war-mongering speeches drowned out the few voices of dissent allowed inside (the Mainers for Kucinich, for example), and a massive police presence squelched protests outside. I disagree with Kerry’s stance on the war in Iraq (he voted to give Bush the authority to wage war, and he now wants to “win” an unjust war), the so-called war on terrorism (he doesn’t address the root causes of terrorism, instead spouting violent rhetoric about “rooting out” and “destroying” the “enemy”), and military aid to Israel (he does not oppose the Apartheid Wall and ongoing oppression of Palestinians). I wish I could vote for a candidate I feel good about, and I firmly believe in the importance of breaking out of a two-party system controlled by corporate interests (yes, I voted for Nader in 2000). But this time around, there is too much to lose. Yes, I have joined the “anybody but Bush” campaign.
