Widespread Voting Problems in Nashville

Tennessee, 03.11.2004 00:25

Despite lengthy preparations and an unprecidented number of early voters, reports of voting problems were widespread across Nashville today. In a large number of cases involving questions of voter eligibility, poll workers were unable to reach Metro election officials to resolve the problems, and in many cases had to send voters away without voting or with instructions to come back later. Why election officials were not able to respond to poll workers in a timely fashion is not yet clear. Other problems included confusion over ansentee ballots, lack of handicapped access to polling facilities, long lines, and voters being required to declare their party affiliation before being allowed to vote.

Moord op Theo van Gogh leidt nog tot weinig bezinning

Netherlands, 02.11.2004 23:52

De bekende filmmaker Theo van Gogh is dinsdagochtend midden op straat in Amsterdam-Oost met messteken en kogelschoten om het leven gebracht [ 1 | 2 ]. De dader komt volgens politiebronnen uit religieuze kringen. Dinsdagavond was er een herdenking voor de vrijheid van meningsuiting, maar men ging ook de Dam op om te demonstreren tegen racisme en discriminatie [ 1 | 2 | foto's ].

Update: (Extreem)rechtse groeperingen probeerden hun munt te slaan uit de moord. Op hun betoging in Amsterdam-Zuid woensdagavond waren echter slechts vijftig mensen. Tegelijkertijd werd een AFA flyer-actie tegen racisme door de ME onmogelijk gemaakt. "Vanavond gold de vrijheid van meningsuiting alleen voor extreem rechts."

Early poll, analysis, predict Kerry win

Michigan, 02.11.2004 23:45

The Raw Story and Zogby International are both predicting a Kerry win in 2004. In a likely attempt to avoid a repeat of the 2000 Presidential Election, most corporate media are not issuing predictions of the results, focusing mostly on the unusually high turnout.

Who do you think will win? What do you think this might mea for social and justice movements in this country and around the world? Check out one response.

Prevent the Theft of our Election

Atlanta, 02.11.2004 23:34

#media_7170;right# New Info proves that Central Tabulating Computers have modems connected and are open to manipulation. ie- all this stuff about vote challengers is just a diversion, because one person can change the state total from their home computer. Take the day off of work to help save our country. Yeah sure conspiracy nuts- they can’t steal it- wrong. We now have evidence that certainly looks like altering a computerized voting system during a real election, and it happened just six weeks ago.

Photos and brief report from Multnomah County Elections office in Portland

Portland, 02.11.2004 23:02

i really like that we have vote-by-mail here in this part of Cascadia temporarily known as Oregon. i appreciate having lots of time with the ballot to research my choices, discuss them with friends (and otherwise), and fill it out really slowly if i'd like, in the comfort of my own home. But as long as i've lived here, i've never mailed it. i always bike it up to the Multnomah County Elections Office on 10th & Morrison in Portland. i do this for two reasons: a) i want to assure that my ballot arrives safely where it's supposed to go, and b) i enjoy the sense of occasion and excitement of going somewhere in person on sElection Day.

So today i biked up there in the rain with my ballot, and the ballots of my roommates, and i was not disappointed. It was quite a scene up there.

&quot;Wahlen&quot; in den USA

Germany, 02.11.2004 22:13

W�hrend in den USA unter Beobachtung von OSZE gew�hlt wurde, berichten die IMCs und andere unabh�ngige Medien �berall in den Vereinigten Staaten von zahlreichen "Unregelm��igkeiten" und Chaos bei der Stimmabgabe. Am Morgen nach der Wahl gibt immer noch keinen offiziellen Gewinner, auch wenn ein "Sieg" Bush's zu erwarten ist. Aufgrund der Stimmung im Lande wurde mit bis zu 60% Wahlbeteiligung gerechnet, Republikaner und Demokraten haben zehntausende Anw�lte angeheuert. Da sich die Vorw�rfe eines Wahlbetrugs und einer Entrechtung der W�hlerinnen gerade im Bundesstaat Florida seit Monaten h�ufen, wurde von AktivistInnen eine landesweite Kampagne vorbereitet, um eine weitere "gestohlene Wahl" zu verhindern. Andere kritisieren die Wahl insgesamt. F�r heute, dem Tag nach der Wahl 3.November ruft ein landesweites breitgef�chertes Beyond Voting-Netzwerk zu Aktionen und Demonstrationen auf.

Von indymedia Michigan wird eine zweit�gige Sondersendung gesendet, sowie ein Live-Webstream (mehr), eine geb�hrenfreie Infotelefonnummer und ein Text-Messaging System ist geschaltet, um die Menschen auf dem neuesten Stand zu halten. Seit Montag ist zudem online und informiert �ber die Wahlen und "Unregelm��igkeiten." Auch die meisten anderen lokalen IMC's in den USA berichten ausf�hrlich von den Wahlen. Live-Radio gibt es von: Indymedia-Pittsburgh, Indymedia-SF, Indymedia-Portland, Indymedia-Michigan und Indymedia-NYC
In den Monaten vor der Wahl wuchs der Druck auf unabh�ngige Medien. So wurde ein Freies Radio in Santa Cruz von schwer bewaffneter Polizei geschlossen, auch indymedia bekam mehrmals Schwierigkeiten mit den Beh�rden. Die Republikanernahe Firma Diebold, welche die umstrittenen elektronischen Wahlurnen betreibt, verklagte Indymedia, um kritische Berichterstattung zu verhindern. Dar�berhinaus wurden fast alle gr��eren Proteste im Sommer verboten oder nur unter gro�en Auflagen gestattet.

A busride down memory lane

Portland, 02.11.2004 21:17

The other day I took a ride on the #30 Burton bus up here in Vancouver. It's a wild ride, for those unfamiliar with it as it currently looks. A close inspection of the neighborhood this route passes through, the current level of construction activities, and the route itself, all seem to reveal a dirty little secret--or many of them. What it all reveals is probably endemic to the West, maybe even the entire country except areas where expansion (urban growth) is no longer possible.

The Burton bus heads N on 164th Ave., through the area known as Fisher's Landing, but it does pass a Fred Meyer which claims to be in the city of Camas, even though that city is a good 4 miles away. This is probably for tax or related reasons. Everything else is either in Vancouver or unincorporated. It's an area notable for the speed with which development occurred--one chain restaurant and bank after another grace the flanks of 164th Ave. At the intersection of 164th and Mill Plain, the worst is over for the most part, but the party has just begun. The bus goes down a hill and takes a left at NE 39th St., across from fields currently being prepared for either new subdivisions or a new shiny business plaza--a new project by (insert construction company name here).

Pacific Lumber Poised to Log Ancient Redwoods

Portland, 02.11.2004 17:09

Humboldt County, CA - Signs dotting Northern California's stretch of Highway 101 declare the scenic passage the "Redwood Highway," named for ancient redwoods that tower over its flanks. Passing through Humboldt Redwoods State Park, which contains one of the largest remaining contiguous stands of ancient coast redwoods in the world, lengths of the famous thoroughfare are just a stone's throw to ancient forest owned by Maxxam/Pacific Lumber - redwoods they hope to cut down in the coming weeks.

The 65-acre Timber Harvest Plan (1-04-220 HUM) is habitat for the endangered marbled murrelet and contains many giant redwoods, including some over 10 feet in diameter. The plan, and its close proximity to the park, has drawn criticism from the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), who sent a dissenting letter of Non-Concurrence to the California Department of Forestry (CDF). The denuded hillside would create a visual blight to passengers on Hwy 101, as well as those on Avenue of the Giants within the State Park. In this location, the "removal of residual old growth redwoods cannot be visually mitigated."

Foro Social de Euskal Herria

Euskal Herria, 02.11.2004 12:30

Un mes después de la celebración del Foro Social Europeo y de Mas Alla del FSE: Espacios Autónomos, le tocaba el turno al II Encuentro del Foro Social de Euskal Herria (EHGF)

El Foro Social de Euskal Herria se constituyó como expresión local del Foro Social Mundial y el Foro Social Europeo. Su objetivo es que el Foro sea "un espacio que contribuya a la reflexión, el intercambio de experiencias, la relación de los diferentes agentes sociales, la articulación de alternativas sociales, la denuncia de las consecuencias sociales del sistema imperante, así como la articulación de respuestas sociales a las mismas", al mismo tiempo que asegura "la pluralidad, la horizontalidad y la participación de todos los agentes sociales reunidos, evitando cualquier tipo de estructura jerárquica".

El primer encuentro del EHGF se realizó del 27 al 29 de junio de 2003 en Gazteiz. [Dossier]

Después de varios meses de trabajo, estaban ya creadas los diferentes ejes temáticos, talleres y sesiones del II Encuentro del EHGF. Las fechas estaban marcadas también: del 12 al 14 de Noviembre en Bilbo. En cambio, a poco menos de un mes, la Secretaría del EHGF anuncia públicamente que estos encuentros quedan suspendidos. En la última Asamblea realizada el 23 de octubre en Bilbo se pudieron ver una serie de discrepancias. Discrepancias que afectaron a la confianza mutua y al consenso al que siempre ha intentado llegar el EHGF.

Este hecho ha generado una discusión muy amplia, que junto a otras realizadas a raiz del Foro Social Europeo, deben hacernos reflexionar sobre todos estos procesos, sus tiempos y hasta donde pueden llegar.

En medio de esta amarga polémica, varias organizaciones creen que los procesos abiertos a raíz de la celebración del Foro no pueden ni deben pararse y van a llevar adelante las sesiones y los talleres que tenían preparados.

De la misma manera el debate y proceso sobre el Foro permanece abierto, si bien se ha evidenciado que se está ante una importante crisis de confianza, que ha abierto una brecha entre sectores aún dispuestos e ilusionados a proseguir con este proyecto y sectores totalmente desencantados. La cicatriz que puede dejar esta brecha solo el tiempo lo dirá.

Debate suscitado: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5

Beyond Voting Actions Nationwide on November 3rd

Boston, 02.11.2004 07:11

Now that the fight to put the latte-sipping Beacon Hill millionaire (who promises to fight a “more effective war on terror”) into the oval office instead of the phony Born-again neo-con new-England brat cum cowboy (who takes his killing orders from Jesus) is over, let’s get back to the real business of bringing about a better world. Anybody But Bush is a thing of the past, win or lose. Kerry voters can now forgive third party voters for voting their conscience, third party voters can now forgive Kerry voters for taking the lesser of two evils, and voters can now forgive non-voters for not supporting a rigged system. We can put these differences aside in the interest of the desire for change we all share. Justice, equality, civil rights, human rights, and an end to the imperial economic policies and irresponsible military aggression of the United States government. Come demonstrate to the rest of the world that the American people are no longer asleep! Time: Wednesday, November 3rd, 5pm Place: Copley Square Bring music, signs, banners, instruments, props, noisemakers, street theater, and whatever else helps you get your message across!

Protesting Bush in Grand Rapids

Michigan, 02.11.2004 06:14

On Saturday October 30 about one hundred people got up early to send the message to President George W. Bush that he is not welcome in Grand Rapids and that nearly every one of his policies is objectionable. Attendance was surprisingly low, especially given the proximity to the election, but low attendance was no doubt a result of the 8:30am starting time and the only two days of notice. The protest was dominated primarily by Kerry supporters of the “Anybody but Bush” attitude although the loudest contingent was a “noise bloc” that played instruments and marched around town before eventually confronting Bush supporters as they left the DeVos Place.
