Mainstream Media Absent as Activists Against Racism Movement Delivers 700 Signatures

Rochester, 20.10.2009 16:07

October 18, 2009 - On Friday, October 16, 2009, (14th anniversary of the historic Million Man March and 150th anniversary of John Brown's insurrection at Harpers Ferry, WV) AARM members and supporters delivered approximately 700 signatures of Rochester city residents to Federal Prosecuting Attorney Douglas E. Gregory's extravagant home, located in one of Penfield, New York's plushest neighborhoods (24 Dundas Road) --- that is, neighborhoods where houses routinely cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The petitions denounced the current racist and absurd use of the RICO statute in a case against 24 poor African-American men and women from one of Rochester, New York's poorest neighborhoods (located in the so-called Northeast Crescent).

New Yorkers join worldwide protests for freedom for Mohammad Othman

NYC, 18.10.2009 23:09

On Saturday forty New York human rights advocates rallied on a cold fall day at the Madison Avenue jewelry store of Israeli settlement mogul Lev Leviev to demand that Israel release jailed Palestinian boycott activist Mohammad Othman. Othman, held without charges and in solitary confinement since September 22nd, is from Jayyous, a West Bank village where Leviev’s company Leader is building the Israeli settlement of Zufim. The protesters also called for an end to Israel’s wave of arrests of Palestinian activists from Bil’in, another West Bank village campaigning against the construction of settlement homes by another Leviev company, Africa-Israel.

Mehserle's Trial to Be Held Outside of Alameda

San Francisco Bay Area, 18.10.2009 21:09

On October 16th, Superior Court Judge Jacobson ordered Johannes Mehserle's trial be moved outside of Alameda County. Judge Jacobson attempted to distance himself from the racism in Mehserle's change of venue motion, but by granting the move, he has in effect given credence to defense attorney Michael Rains' assertions that due to news coverage and protester's actions the citizens of Alameda are not qualified to be impartial jurors. A final venue will be chosen within about two weeks.

Good Cop, Better Cop: Code Pink's San Francisco Lame-Out

DC, 18.10.2009 18:10

Code Pink's Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans, shown above, really double-teamed old Obie recently in San Francisco, with a fiendish nutcracker strategy. Medea said nice things about him out on the street, while Jodie handed him a big check inside: Benjamin said she was disappointed Obama wasn't being seen outside high-priced political events. "It would have been good for the president to hear from the Bay Area, and it would have helped to release his inner progressive," she said. "We know it's there somewhere…"

Protesters shout down Ehud Olmert at the University of Chicago

Chicago, 18.10.2009 15:09

From the newswire: "[On Thursday, October 15, a]pproximately 30 activists — mainly students from area universities — disrupted a lecture given in Chicago by former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert yesterday which was hosted by the University of Chicago's Harris School of Public Policy. While Olmert's speech was disrupted inside the lecture hall, approximately 150 activists protested outside the hall in the freezing rain.

"Protesters inside the hall read off the names of Palestinian children killed during Israel's assault on Gaza last winter. They shouted that it was unacceptable that the war crimes suspect be invited to speak at a Chicago university when his army destroyed a university in Gaza in January. They reminded the audience of the more than 1,400 Palestinians killed during the Gaza attacks and the more than 1,200 killed during Israel's invasion of Lebanon in 2006. Both invasions happened during Olmert's premiership. With interventions coming every few minutes throughout his appearance, Olmert had difficulty giving his speech and often appeared frustrated. At one point he appealed for 'just five minutes' to speak without being interrupted." Read more

Health Care and Peace Top Topics When Obama Comes to Town

San Francisco Bay Area, 18.10.2009 04:23

While President Obama spoke inside the St. Francis Hotel on October 15, thousands of protesters turned out to deliver messages of their own. Health care was just one of many topics as people gathered from the left and right, rubbing shoulders and competing for space for their placards in the crowd. A large group of single payer health care plan advocates supported by physicians and nurses wielded some of the largest banners and drew a heavy turnout.



The Indypendent Issue 141: Labor Pains: In an Economic Recession, Where is the Labor Movement?

NYC, 18.10.2009 01:38

Hard times don’t seem to be going away fast. Unemployment continues to rise and there has been no ebb in foreclosures. Wall Street continues to reap astronomical profits, and inequality increases with it.

Yet there is no widespread labor movement in this weak economy. Businesses continue to shed jobs, and the Obama administration has reneged on a key provision of the Employee Free Choice Act.

Abby Scher, a sociologist and editorial director of the progressive think tank Political Research Associates, writes, “Despite the urgent need for labor law reform and the fact that labor reportedly pumped $350 million into the Democrat Party in 2008, enabling its sweeping electoral victory, the business lobby has pressured congressional Democrats to back away from EFCA one by one, like Blanche Lincoln of Wal-Mart’s home state of Arkansas. Senators like Lincoln have bargained away what was once the heart of EFCA, called “card check.”

Card check would let workers form a union if a majority sign cards saying they want one. This would take away employers’ ability to ignore the cards and demand secret ballot elections. Many government workers currently organize through card check. The Hawaiian legislature just gave this option to farm workers and others in the state not covered by federal labor law.”

VIDEOS: Homeless Protest at City Hall

Portland, 17.10.2009 18:38

I stopped by the "NO Camping Law" Protest, at Portland City Hall, and not expecting to see anyone I find about 20 people who are "protest/camping" around the building to demand changes regarding sleeping in a safe place without arrest at night in Portland.

The protest and some of the problems are discussed in the four short vidoes. The restroom issue was something I feel needs better attention by the city especially now that they closed the city hall rest room and there seems to be not much available from what I hear.

The protest seems respectable yet poignant in its demands. With winter quickly approaching and with others being criminalized for sleeping outside the city is being pressured to step things up.

12 Arrested at Regence Sit-in!

Portland, 17.10.2009 18:38

Healthcare activists and their supporters, take over the campus of Regence-Bluecross, in an attempt to meet with their CEO, and have demands heard, but are denied justice, and refused entry.

This is Martha Perez, reporting to you live from SW Portland, where about 50 healthcare advocates are gathered for a non-violent, peaceful sit-in, rally and march around the campus of Regence Bluecross, home to one of the largest healthcare insurers in Oregon state. I am being told the building now is in lock-down, and will remain so, for the time being, in response to this latest action.

Update From Local Grand Jury Resister Carrie Feldman

Portland, 17.10.2009 18:38

Today I had my first appearance before the federal grand jury in Davenport, Iowa. I was represented by a federal public defender (although he could not be present in the grand jury with me). After reading a brief statement expressing that I would not testify, I was released with a subpoena to reappear before the grand jury again on the 17th of November at 9:00 A.M. It is likely that at this time I will be held in contempt of court for continuing to remain silent, and could face jail time up to the length of the grand jury (it convenes for 12 months total, which leaves 11 remaining after my November appearance). We are still looking into legal questions regarding how long they could hold me.
