At a Brooklyn Town Hall Powerpoint Trumps Democracy

NYC, 03.09.2009 23:38

The limiting of the conversation, even in the name of civility, is certainly counter to the concept of town hall meetings. What are these politicians afraid of? Conservative disrupters? Not too many of those in the crowd on this night. More likely. they fear that the will of their constituents will force them to fight for a single-payer system, despite the wishes of corporate lobbyists and campaign contributers.

Кодекс об образовании

Belarus, 03.09.2009 15:07

Белорусское правительство подготовило проект Кодекса об образовании, который планируют рассмотреть в палате на осенней и весенней сессиях. Пока неизвестно, в каком виде этот документ будет представлен на всеобщее обозрение. Однако основные направления Кодекса и отдельные рациональные предложения депутатов по его усовершенствованию не представляют секрета. Некоторые пункты довольно любопытны.

Так, “большое значение для развития системы образования будет иметь переход в соответствии с Кодексом во всех учреждениях образования, которые обеспечивают получение профессии, к подготовке специалистов по договорам. (…) То есть молодой человек, пройдя тестирование, будет заключать с вузом договор, где будет обозначена его судьба после окончания учебного заведения.” (БЕЛТА) Вот так контрактная система продолжает экспансию и на сферу образования. Соединим этот пункт Кодекса с замораживанием зарплат в госсекторе в соответствии с рекомендациями МВФ и тогда нетрудно будет догадаться, за счет…

Troy Davis' Innocence To Finally Be Considered

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.09.2009 19:39

On August 17, 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a hearing on the innocence claim of death row prisoner Troy Anthony Davis. For years, courts have shown little interest in establishing Troy Davis' innocence, asserting that it was legally irrelevant as he had exhausted his appeals. But now Supreme Court justices have declared that "The substantial risk of putting an innocent man to death clearly provides an adequate justification for holding an evidentiary hearing."

Minneapolis-St. Paul Commemorates One Year After RNC Resistance

United States, 02.09.2009 11:07

This week marks the first year anniversary of RNC resistance in St. Paul. One year after the biggest police mobilization and one of the largest days of protest, civil disobedience and direction action in Minnesota history, the work of resisting the RNC and accompanying state repression continues.

On Friday, RNC 8 supporters picketed prosecutor Susan Gaertner's planned appearance at a gubernatorial candidate forum, a day after performing outside her no-show state fair booth.  Also that day, the large anniversary critical mass ride visited the occupation of Rosemary Williams' home on Clinton Avenue.  Then on Saturday, participants in Re:Activism Twin Cities met at the Black Dog Cafe in St. Paul before visiting historic sites throughout downtown and completing street theater, protest, and consciousness-raising challenges about the RNC and local history (see photos by Alan). Coming up on Monday, the trial of Christina Vana and Karen Meissner begins in Ramsey County court; the two are accused of aiding and abetting assault last September 1 and are asking for court solidarity. On Tuesday, a press conference will be held at 12:30 at the site of the Shepard Road mass arrest last Labor Day, in which over 200 people were corralled along the Mississippi.  Lawyers there will announce the filing of a class-action civil rights lawsuit.  Also that day, the RNC 8 Defense Committee has organized a national call-in to Gaertner's county and campaign offices before her appearance at a gubernatorial debate at the fair that evening. Related: CRASS: 1-Year Anniversary Media Packet PDF (Excerpted Below) w/ Updates, Video Links, and More | RNC08Report: A Citizen's Archive | TCIMC: All stories tagged RNC | Terrorizing Dissent: download the documentary | And it goes on... September 22-25: Resist the G20 in Pittsburgh

RNC One-Year Anniversary Info Packet Now Available

Portland, 02.09.2009 05:38

In anticipation of the one-year anniversary of the 2008 RNC in St. Paul, Minnesota, we've compiled this packet for the media and other interested observers.

One year after the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., the aftermath remains newsworthy. The RNC was for many of us our taste of a police state; the astounding violence against protesters, bystanders, journalists and others directed by Sheriff Bob Fletcher and other authorities shocked and radicalized many of us. We have since come to realize that these instances of raids, intimidation and violence play out regularly in our society, particularly in communities of color and working class communities, and will almost assuredly replay themselves at upcoming summits such as the G20 in Pittsburgh later this September. Thus, keeping the RNC in our collective consciousness is critical.

PETTRY BOTTOM, W.Va. - After six full days in an 80-foot-tall poplar tree, Nick Stocks will voluntarily come down at 10:00 a.m. today.

We are seeking donations of sleeping bags; sleeping pads; rain gear; headlamps, flashlights & batteries; hand held radios and more.

Sea Lion Killed By ODFW in Astoria

Portland, 02.09.2009 05:38

Once again, the State of Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife has lied to the public regarding the killing of Columbia river sea lions. On May 19th of this year, they claimed in a public statement that the trapping and killing had ended for the year. However, on August 24th, they trapped a sea lion on the Oregon coast, in Astoria, more than a hundred miles from Bonneville dam. And they killed him. They claimed he "met the criteria for removal," meaning that he had been "observed eating at least one fish."

At a time when thousands of sea lions are starving to death from Chile to Canada, when the public is struggling to save them, and while NOAA is apparently trying to figure out why they are dying, the ODFW has resumed killing those sea lions who venture into Oregon waters. The irony is compounded when one appreciates that the reason so many sea lions are starving to death is very likely over-fishing.

Monitors are urgently needed to observe the Astoria traps, and to hand out fliers and educate the public about what is happening to these sea lions. If you care about this ecosystem and the animals who share it with us, we need your creativity, your energy, and your passion.

Volunteers Vow to Continue Efforts, Demand End to Border Militarization

On Tuesday, August 11 No More Deaths volunteer Walt Staton (who is also an editor with Arizona Indymedia) was sentenced to 300 hours of community service and 1 year unsupervised probation by federal Magistrate Jennifer Guerin. Staton was convicted on June 3, 2009 for littering, after placing clean bottles of drinking water along known migrant trails in the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge (BANWR). Staton is also banned from entering the refuge for one year.

Staton, who is moving to the LA area next week to begin seminary school, stated that he will continue to support No More Deaths' life-saving work, and believes that both humanitarian groups and the government should pursue the most effective tactics possible to prevent needless suffering and death along the border.

Since the mid-1990s, U.S. border policy has been focused on channeling unauthorized migration into remote and fragile desert areas. This has resulted in more than 5,000 deaths along the U.S./Mexico border, and damage to protected wildlife habitat. Since 2001, officials with BANWR have refused to approve permits for humanitarian activities on the refuge. read more>>> | | See also: "Land managers and humanitarian organizations caught in the crosshairs"
