После, постояв некоторое время на видном месте на набережной, пошли в сторону спортивного комплекса "Юность".

A special thanks for endorsement of this exhibit goes to Ashland's Public Arts Commission. An additional thank you goes to artist Janet Essley who has donated her wonderful paintings in order to raise awareness of this growing campaign.

The following Janet Essley paintings were photographed by Paul Woolery.

Response to: Queer Kids Say: Resist the Gay Marriage Agenda!

DC, 01.11.2009 23:09

This is insane. No serious examples and evidence of the claim that the gay marriage "agenda" somehow inherently "pits" gays against other people, or any of the other outrageous assumptions made here. Those claims are based solely, in fact, on exactly the sort of buying-into-the-system-definitions that the writers accuse the gay marriage "agenda" of doing. Would you argue that we shouldn't fight it if the government didn't give marriage licenses to black people?… And if you DO add your names to the list of those fighting against gay marriage rights, you will be considered an enemy of equality for gays, because you will BE an enemy of equality for gays.

Sussex Students Boycott Israeli Goods

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.11.2009 11:39

Following a landmark referendum, students at Sussex University have voted to boycott Israeli goods. The decision will become part of the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign, which calls upon Israel to respect international law and end the occupation of Palestine. The referendum result mandates the Students' Union to remove all Israeli produce from its stores, and review its sources for food outlets. This makes Sussex Students' Union the first in the UK to implement a full boycott of Israeli goods. The vote was one of the largest and closest contested in the Union's history, with 562 votes for and 450 against the boycott.

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.11.2009 11:09

On Wednesday, October 21, Ezra Nawi was sentenced to 30 days in jail, a 750 Shekels fine (about 150$), 500 Shekels compensation to each of the two Israeli soldiers who accuse him of attacking them, and another 6 mouths in jail if he is convicted in the next three year of "illegal gathering".

Phuong Ho Brutal Attack by The SJ Police Stirs Distrust and Resentment

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.11.2009 11:09

Raj Jayadev, writes:,"On Oct. 24, the San Jose Mercury News released the video of a San Jose State math major getting beaten and tased by the San Jose Police Department in his home on Sept. 3, 2009. Police were called to the scene after 20-year-old Phuong Ho allegedly wielded a knife during an altercation with his roommate. All the viewer can hear, in between groaning cries of pain and calls for mercy, are the cracking sounds of the batons as they meet 20-year-old Phuong Ho's head and body, and the torturous zapping of a Taser gun. It is, in a word, disturbing."

From a statement by The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine"Protests have recently greeted the leaders and representatives of the occupation state wherever they have traveled - in October 2009 in the United States, former occupation prime minister and war criminal Ehud Olmert has been chased from city to city, shouted down in every venue and exposed for his war crimes.

Muslim Groups Demand Investigation into Death of Imam Luqman

DC, 01.11.2009 08:09

Muslim organizations are calling for an independent investigation into the FBI shooting of Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah, a well known African American Muslim leader who headed the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque on Detroit’s west side. The FBI response was to invite condolences for 2-year-old Belgian Malinois dog shot on the scene. Imam Luqman was shot to death by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on Wedneday October 28 2009 at a warehouse in Dearborn during raids by both federal agents and local police departments resulting in the arrests of 11 people. The raids were conducted based on criminal complaints that have no specific allegations of violations of federal law or acts of terrorism. Video: FBI Faces Claims It Spied on Muslims

Day laborers in DC scored another big victory on October 2nd: recovering over $10,000 in stolen wages for eight workers. Several members of the Union de Trabajadores de Washington, DC, a day laborer association, had been doing work on a DC public school building over the summer, and were paid less than promised. They reached out to DC Jobs with Justice and the DC Employment Justice Center, who quickly realized this public project entitled the workers to higher, “prevailing wages” for their work.

Das deutsche Superjubeljahr und Proteste dagegen

Germany, 31.10.2009 15:09

Anlässlich des 9. November 2009 unternimmt die BRD noch einmal eine letzte Anstrengung dieses Jahr, dem anstehenden Jubiläumskalender historischer Wendemarken "deutscher" Geschichte feierlich-staatstragend und "in Würde" zu folgen. Zur nationalen Befriedungssause Deutschlands soll es eine Fanmeile in Berlin geben, wo jeder mitmachen darf, kann und soll. Diesem "Fest der Freiheit", bei dem sich Deutschland anlässlich des Mauerfalls als freiheitsliebender Friedenstifter geriert, soll mit einer antinationalen Aktion begegnet werden, die eingebettet ist in einer von dem "Ums Ganze-Bündnis" initiierten Kampagne "STAAT.NATION.KAPITAL.SCHEISSE - Gegen die Herrschaft der falschen Freiheit!".

Dieser Artikel für Indymedia wirft einen Blick nach vorn auf den 9. November und einen doppelten Blick zurück. Zu Anfang geht es kurz um das anstehende "Fest der Freiheit" in Berlin um dann einen Blick auf die linken Proteste gegen die "Wende" von 1990 und auf die Kampagne "Staat.Nation.Kapital.Scheisse!" von "Ums ". Zu guter letzt gibt es ein kurzes Update zur Demonstration "Es gibt kein Ende der Geschichte" am 7. November.

STOP! the BU Bioterror Lab marched on the Boston University Campus

Boston, 31.10.2009 05:44

#media_17308;left# On Friday, October 30th, 2009 a determined group of 15-20 anti-authoritarians, anarchists and concerned citizens marched on the Boston University campus with a message to send for the students and faculty: STOP the BU Bioterror Laboratory NOW! Beginning around 2:30 in the afternoon and ending several hours later, a group consisting of the infamous Raging Grannies, people dressed in laboratory containment suits, and walking zombies came to life and marched all over the Boston University campus playing music, and chanting, "The Bio-lab ain't no good! We don't want it in our neighborhood!" along with other chants made upon the spot. The group was accompanied by people handing out leaflets with information about the BSL-4 Bioterror lab that was built during the Bush (W) years and with the full support of the current Mayor Menino. A bullhorn shouting information into the crowds of seemingly stunned BU students as they moved between classes along Commonwealth Ave in the afternoon. Boston University administrators (who refused to give their names) were on-scene to make sure that the non-violent demonstration was carefully watched by a mixture of different law enforcement agencies. The campus police were the most visible but they were joined by Boston police and what looked like federal officers driving in circles around the group with their black cars with tinted windows taking pictures of the demonstrators as they chanted and made their way up and down Commonwealth Ave engaging every passerby with information and some music. #media_17314;left#

Support the EDO Decommissioners

United Kingdom, 30.10.2009 16:09

The decommisioners are six activists on trial for direct action taken against the massacre in Gaza. On January 17th, as the bombs rained on Gaza, they destroyed hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of machinery owned by EDO MBM, preventing the factory from manufacturing bomb racks and arming units for Israeli F16s.

Eight people are currently on bail and one is on remand, currently in Lewes Prison. All are charged with conspiracy to cause criminal damage.

Between the 16th and the 23rd actions were held across the UK and in Palestine in support of the decommissioners. On the 16th, in Manchester, a demonstration was held outside Brimar, a factory making display units for the Israeli Apache helicopter, launching a new campaign. Several of the decommissioning defendants were arrested at the demonstration gfor breach of bail but later released. On Monday a demonstration was held at Brighton Town Hall calling on Brighton and Hove Council to debate the presence of EDO MBM in Brighton, a petition will be handed in to the council meeting in December. On Wednesday some of the names of those killed during the Gaza massacre were read outside the EDO MBM factory in Brighton. On Thursday two pickets of the Foreign office were held and a petition calling for an end to arms exports to Israel and in support of the decommissioners was handed in. On Friday the Palestinian village of Bil In dedicated its weekly demonstration against the apartheid wall to the decommissioners.

Austria: 10 dzień studenckiej rewolty

Poland, 30.10.2009 13:09

Wczoraj minął 10 dzień protestów studentów w Austrii, które rozpoczęły się w zeszłym tygodniu okupacją wiedeńskiej Akademii Sztuk Pięknych i szybko rozszerzyły na cały kraj.

Również wczoraj 4 tysiące osób wyszło na ulice w Graz na południu kraju by zaprotestować przeciw stale pogarszającym się warunkom nauki i życia. Wczesnym popołudniem sala zebrań wydziału nauk społecznych na Uniwersytecie w Innsbruck została zaskłotowana przez studentów. Oznacza to, że obecnie wszystkie główne austriackie uczelnie są okupowane przez studenckich aktywistów, za wyjątkiem małej akademii górniczej w Leoben.

Thousands Converge in Chicago to Oppose Major Bankers' Conference

Chicago, 30.10.2009 07:09

The U.S. economy has been brought to the brink of collapse thanks to the failure of shoddy and dubious financial instruments, and kept afloat only thanks to major infusions of taxpayer cash. The major banking institutions, who have been raked over the coals of public opinion, saw their main public lobby, the American Bankers Association, assemble in Chicago, only to face the wrath of organized public outrage.

Thousands of activists and citizens also converged to take the ABA to task, thanks to the organizing efforts of National People's Action in an effort called Showdown in Chicago. Protesters entered the lobby of the Sheraton Chicago to face the ABA directly. This was followed by marches through downtown Chicago where thousands voiced their concern and called for accountability and positive change.

Advocates for Universal Health Care Target MVP Insurance

Rochester, 30.10.2009 05:19

Advocates for Universal Health Care from the Rochester region joined with communities from all over the country on Wednesday October 28th in day of Action demanding health care for all. In a protest targeting "MVP healthcare" at its office on Alexander Street in Downtown Rochester, 30 activists rallied along the sidewalk with the message that Medicare for all is the best solution to the health care crisis. Meanwhile, inside the building, 4 activists who had intended to deliver a letter they prepared for the vice president of MVP- Lisa Brubaker, were unable to gain access to the offices. When it was clear security would prevent them from entering, the activists sat outside the MVP offices in a courtyard cafe and ordered coffee. They were approached by 10 Rochester police, 6 building security guards and were asked to leave. When they responded that they would stay and finish the coffee they ordered, the 4 activists were arrested. Read the entire Story Video of Demonstration and Interviews with Participants

The Coleman School in Seattle, WA was occupied in 1985 by a group of black men who demanded it be preserved and transformed into a community center for the community. As consistently happens, the government along with the Urban League of Seattle turned the building into a condominium with an excuse for a 'museum' on the first floor.

If you truly support self-determination, reparations, grassroots community development, pay very close attention to this case and the larger politics surrounding it.
