A Review of The Coming Insurrection

Boston, 16.09.2009 21:09

The Coming Insurrection, a new book on revolutionary theory, may be the best marketed book in radical history, mostly thanks to the French government. First published in 2007, the book was dubbed "a manual for terrorism" by the French Interior Minister. As if that weren't enough, Julien Coupat, one of the Tarnac 9, was held in prison for several extra months on suspicion of having written it, generating even more publicity. On this side of the Atlantic, Glenn Beck, Fox News' paleo-reactionary genocide apologist, contributed a hilarious foaming-at-the-mouth "review" that became an instant Youtube classic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKyi2qNskJc). Even some anarchists have gotten in on the act. Anti-authoritarians in New York City staged an unauthorized reading at a Barnes and Noble, which was covered by none other than The New York Times.



FENTY ILLEGALLY CLOSING CHILD CARE CENTERS

DC, 16.09.2009 20:09

At a Public Oversight Hearing on Libraries, Parks and Recreation September 9, Councilman Harry Thomas, Jr. again charged the executive branch with violating the law as it moves to close day care programs operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR). Disregarding the law, Fenty already closed several sites and told workers to end enrollment and prepare to close at others, systematically stripping away a key part of the safety net for many DC parents. The closures will result in more than 160 workers losing their jobs, and hundreds of working parents the child care they depend upon.

Chicago-based Kraft Foods Focus of Argentine Workers Solidarity Campaign

Chicago, 15.09.2009 02:08

Workers in a food production plant in Argentina have called for solidarity efforts against the Illinois-based multinational food corporation Kraft in the wake of the firings of more than 150 Kraft workers in Argentina.

A food factory in Buenos Aires owned by the Argentina-based company Terrabusi was bought out by Kraft in 2004. Since then, the company has markedly reduced hygiene efforts at the factory to cut costs. But a July 2009 outbreak of H1N1 flu struck the plant, and workers (many of whom were working mothers) were forced to strike simply to take sick leave to avoid the unhygenic surroundings. In the wake of the strike, Kraft "selectively fired" some 150 workers, including many union leaders and union delegates.

The Kraft workers have taken to repeated protest, including a street blockade in Buenos Aires. Workers have demanded the rehiring of the 150 fired workers by Kraft, and called for solidarity efforts in the United States, and particularly in the Chicago area since Kraft is headquartered in the Chicago suburb of Glenview. Illinois Kraft officers have been caught following using the internet to follow the activism of the workers in Argentina, but the workers have responded in kind by using internet social media to raise awareness and rally support.

Maya Wind and Netta Mishly from the refusnic group &quot;Shministim&quot;, at UC Berkeley

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.09.2009 18:09

On Wednesday September 16, Maya Wind and Netta Mishly from the refusnic group "Shministim", will speak at the MLK, Jr. Building at UC Berkely . Maya Wind and Netta Mishly both signed the 2008 Shministim Letter: a declaration by Israeli high school students that they would not enlist in the IDF to occupy Palestinian territories and rule over Palestinian life. Since military service is mandatory for Israeli Jews upon completing high school, Maya, Netta, and many of the dozens of teenagers who signed the letter have been sentenced to military prison, sometimes for multiple terms.



T-Day: America Rebukes Scary Negro Socialism

DC, 14.09.2009 06:09

"LISTEN! I HEAR A BLACK HELICOPTER COMING!" Bitchy, greedy, stupid, paunchy White America was at its bitchiest, greediest, stupidest and paunchiest on this fine September afternoon. Never before had so many paid so much to fuel so many SUVs to be at such an historic event. The liberty to piss and moan about having a mixed-race President, to piss and moan about having to pony up for highways and bridges and libraries and schools and Medicare, to piss and moan about anything even remotely resembling national healthcare and demand the poor be allowed to sicken and die while pissing and moaning about how Obama is going to kill their grandmas, is a sacred liberty in this country, and bitchy, greedy, stupid, paunchy White America was there to exercise it… Video by Mike Flugennock: America Rebukes Scary Negro Socialism, download from DC IMC media gallery. 03:32; 12.5mb Still photography by Isis, via Flickr.

'Beat False Marijuana Charges' Project Begins

DC, 13.09.2009 20:09

Beat False Marijuana Charges (BFMC) is a port of call for anyone arrested on drug charges or whose urine or hair tested positive for marijuana. Our research and investigations have confirmed that the overwhelming majority of drug prosecutions and convictions in this country are based on nonspecific, unvalidated drug tests which give false positives and/or subjective, ipse dixit testimonies from arresting police officers. Such use of these tests and testimonies is in violation of three Supreme Court rulings, particularly, Jackson v Virginia, and scientific principles. We have found that challenging a pending drug prosecution vis-à-vis the drug tests and testimonies can lead to a directed order of dismissal or an acquittal if the case goes to trial. We have also determined that urine and hair analyses are capable of rendering many false positives. We are offering free assessments for anyone arrested on drug charges regarding whether they could successfully challenge their pending prosecutions or trials. We are offering the same free assessment for urine tests and hair analyses.

11 de setembro: Xornada de loita en defensa do Salgueirón

Galiza, 13.09.2009 13:09

PARO TOTAL DA FLOTA DE BAIXURA E DAS LONXAS DA RÍA DE VIGO: CENTOS DE BARCOS SE CONCENTRARON NO SALGUEIRÓN E UNHA MANIFESTACIÓN PERCORREU AS RÚAS DE CANGAS

O de onte foi outro día importante na longa loita de Cangas en defensa do Salgueirón. Unha loita que xa non é só de Cangas senón de toda a ría, porque onte toda a Ría de Vigo estivo alí, diante da antiga fábrica de Massó.

O seguimento da folga convocada esixindo a paralización inmediata das obras do porto deportivo foi total. Tódalas lonxas da ría permaneceron pechadas, coa excepción da de Vigo onde só se descargou pesca de altura. A flota pesqueira, bateeira e marisqueira permaneceu amarrada ou concentrouse na zona do Salgueirón, onde máis de duascentas embarcacións procedentes de tódolos portos da ría, e algúns de fora dela, fixeron sonar as súas sirenas insistentemente desde as 11 da mañá. Mesmo había un barco da Garda Civil que tamén se quixo sumar á xornada reivindicativa. Menos este, todos os demais lucían bandeiras nas que se podía ler “Caixa rouba: Stop Massó” e moitos portaban grandes faixas con distintas consignas.

En terra centos de persoas acudiron a recibilos entre aplausos e berros de “goberne quen goberne Massó non se vende”, respondendo así á convocatoria de A ría non se vende a pesar de tratarse dun día laborable.

Slaughter Truck in the Morning Commute: A Haunting Encounter

Portland, 13.09.2009 00:08

This morning, I was late for work. Later, even, than usual. As I drove down the highway, I was distracted and feeling rushed. So I'm not sure how long I had been following it, but it was just as I was about to pass it that I finally saw the huge, dirty, gray truck. I recognized it as soon as I focused on it - the tiny slats in the sides, the shit spattered beneath those slats. The shape and feel and finality of it. Even if I had not seen the "Cattle Drive" logo near the top of the box, I would have recognized the looming sense of loss about it. It was a slaughter truck.

Through the meager air slots I saw, dimly at first, a tangled puzzle of lives and oppression: legs and hooves, the dangling tufts of tails. The bits and pieces of animals, already turned from subjects of their own lives into pieces of machinery, cogs in the grinding wheel, the unwaged slaves on whom our way of life is built. Commodities. Crammed from end to end, this cattle car was haunted inside with shadows. No, not mere shadows, but living beings. Beings with thoughts, dreams, desires, lives of their very own. Not mere means to our ends, but being used so just the same.

I wanted there to be some way to save them.



Giant Landlord Abruptly Exits Leaving East Palo Alto Tenants in Danger

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.09.2009 22:39

On September 9, the San Mateo County Superior Court appointed a receiver for Page Mill Properties 1800-unit East Palo Alto apartment portfolio after the giant landlord abandoned their property management duties and offices last week. East Palo Alto's biggest landlord missed a $50 million balloon payment to their bank last month prompting Wells Fargo to seek a temporary restraining order barring Page Mill from collecting further rents and destroying any books relating to the properties.



Bay Area &quot;Eat-Ins&quot; Send Message to Congress

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.09.2009 22:39

On September 7, hundreds of Bay Area residents came together for potlucks and to send a message to Congress: "now is the time to provide children with real food in public school lunch programs". Gathering in parks, on a farm, and at a cooperative housing venue, healthy food proponents took advantage of the Labor Day holiday to bring neighbors together and build support for replacing artificially supplemented meals with natural food in schools.



Guards evict homeless patrons from 1 Judiciary Sq restaurant

&quot;Eviction is the crime!&quot; Cops Respond to Eviction Resistance with Raid, Assaults at Rosemary's

United States, 12.09.2009 10:07

Thirty-five days into the popular occupation of 3138 Clinton, Rosemary Williams (one of five Minnesota women publicly resisting eviction - TCIMC/PPEHRC video) was inside her home when it was raided by the Minneapolis Police Department around 2:45pm Friday afternoon.  Three supporters were inside.  Police claimed they would give ample time to move out remaining belongings, and those inside did so, aided by several dozen who rallied to the scene.

But later in the afternoon, the MPD's plan for a quiet, obedient eviction was foiled.  After rallying the crowd, a handful of activists crossed the yellow tape roping off Clinton Avenue on either side of the house and were promptly assaulted by the police with kicks and pepper spray.  Other supporters crossed the now-removed yellow tape from the opposite direction to ensure the activists' safety.  Officers responded aggressively; one shoved someone to the ground with a two-handed shove to the chest. A TC Indymedia volunteer was sprayed directly in the face while on the "public" side of the police tape.

Four or five people sat down in front of the house in an act of civil disobedience.  An officer pointed to another man standing motionless with the crowd outside the police cordon, grabbed him and arrested him.  Eventually, seven were taken waiting vans in the alley and arrested.  An MPD spokesman said they were charged with obstruction of legal process, though they have not actually been formally charged as of tonight.  As of midnight, all have been released from jail.  This video (1:50) shows the police conduct during the civil disobedience.

Why Wasn't There A Single Democrat Willing To Heckle Bush Like Joe Wilson Did Obama?

DC, 12.09.2009 04:21

Quick question: why the fuck are Democrats boasting that they kept their mouths shut and their hands folded on their knees during every crazed speech Bush gave, unlike that bad ol’ Confederate Joe Wilson? Is that something the Dems should be proud of? If anything, Wilson’s outburst should make Democrats flush their own heads down the nearest toilet in shame for being such spineless pieces of shit right at the time that America needed an opposition most–a noisy, vicious, unpredictable opposition–to save the nation, us, and our grandchildren. Instead, they were polite, and they’re still proud of how polite they were…
