Urbana-Champaign Organizes for Post-Election Initiatives.

Urbana-Champaign, 04.11.2004 04:27

Scores of local community members took part in a hastily assembled Community Meeting and Social to discuss new projects, ideas, and strategies following the 2004 elections. Earlier in the evening community members rallied in the cold and rain at the corner of Race and Main Streets in downtown Urbana to demonstrate against the flawed American election system. Over a dozen projects were unveiled and discussed as people channeled their anger, their concern, and their disappointment -- vowing not to give up hope, lessen in their community engagement, or cease resisting discrimination and the diminution of our civil rights.



Fixed

Madison, 04.11.2004 04:07

No one has posted it yet on the Madison site so I just want to say that many people feel this is a fixed election. Kerry gave up too early.



Police State in Santa Cruz

Accused of being drunk in public, I was abducted from my friends on 10/29/04 and was refused a breathalyzer test.

I had committed no crime. Caring about another human being while they are suffering becomes a crime only when you live in a police state.

Post-Election Protest in Copley: Boston Activists Disoriented, but Still Swinging

Boston, 04.11.2004 02:09

With the partially dismantled scaffolding for Kerry’s election-night rally still dominating the steps of the library in Copley Square, Boston activists gathered there at 5:00 to vent their frustration with the outcome of the election and the state of the country in general. Although the intention was to gather in the park, the police immediately chased people away, telling them that needed to a permit, and directing them to the sidewalks across the street. Approximately 70 people gathered on the other three corners of Boylston and Dartmouth Streets. Police arrested one person, apparently because he was climbing the scaffolding left over from the Kerry rally. Many of the people I spoke to expressed their frustration with the results of the election. People also generally seemed uncertain about how the left should move forward. Nonetheless, people also clung fiercely to hope, with young one woman handing out daisies to symbolize this.

Karmic Blowback and the Democrats

Portland, 03.11.2004 23:25

I don't for a moment believe that Kerry actually lost the popular vote. Of all the votes lost -- with partisan scrub lists, at-the-polls shenanigans over IDs, etc., and Diebold hackings, or just plain thrown out -- a majority would undoubtedly have voted for Kerry and put him over the top. What happened was simple: last time, the Republicans stole it by the seat of their pants, so this time they ratcheted up their efforts and stole it big. They got away with it this time because the Democrats never called them on it last time. Instead, the Democratic leadership and their national support groups spent four years building the myth that the blame was with Nader. Considering who was disenfranchised, this lack of action was nothing less than Racist with a capital "R".

...Given a choice between fighting or ignoring a serious injustice, the Democratic Party leadership chose to look the other way (belated mentions near the end of this year's campaign notwithstanding). The Party got what was coming to it on Tuesday when the number of disenfranchised and unrepresented voters grew in number, in just the right states.

US Presidential Election: Your views

Boston, 03.11.2004 20:08

John Kerry has conceded the election, but did it ever really matter? Both men were of an elite ruling class that most of us will never have personal contact with. Both men were enthusiastic about war. Both men made many promises about their candidacies even the least savvy of us know were irresponsible promises. So what comes next? Where do we go from here? Do we broaden the movement to once again include globalization, wealth inequality, and institutional racism? Or do we continue with this focused anti-Bush fight? How can we, as a movement, affect what is happening in the South and the Mid-West? How can we be effective against a growing morally conservative population that places pro-life abortion policies above health insurance for all? Enter your reactions and ideas here.



Kerry Concedes; Protests Begin

Hudson Mohawk, 03.11.2004 19:44

Democratic contender John Kerry has decided to concede the election to George Bush, despite widespread problems with voting in Ohio. Groups around the country were already planning to take the streets on November 3 to protest the election of a pro-war president. From Alexander Cockburn: It's as grim a day for the Democrats as was 1980 when the Republicans swept the board. What will the Democrats do? You can already hear the Democratic Leadership Council cranking up its message that you can only beat the Republicans by outflanking them on the right. The Nader alibi has gone. The Democratic Party and its leaders have nowhere else to look than in the mirror. They would do well to examine Nader's critiques, but we bet they won't.



US Presidential Elections: A View from the Left

Hudson Mohawk, 03.11.2004 19:25

The most significant aspect of the US Presidential elections is the dramatic shift of the entire political spectrum to the Right. Fundamental reactionary changes in the US constitution, social legislation, international politics and law, as well as historical experience have become the common language of both major candidates in this election, without any mass popular demonstrations or intellectual protest from the majority of the Left.

Election Ends With Widespread Voting Problems; Protests Planned for TODAY.

Urbana-Champaign, 03.11.2004 17:54

Voters from around the country have reported on their experiences at the polls. The League of Pissed Off Voters, a network doing national voter-organizing out of New York City, compiled a preliminary list of reports of voting irregularities in New Orleans, LA; St. Petersburg, FL; Toledo, OH; Columbus, OH; Beloit, WI; and Milwuakee, WI. Other reported voting problems posted to IMCs include Felton, CA; Nashville, TN; Michigan and Ohio; Portland, OR; Boston, MA; Pittsburgh, PA; Florida and Pennsylvania; St. Louis, MO; Tulsa, OK; Manhattan, NY; Urbana, IL; Brooklyn, NY; and elsewhere.

No matter what the outcome of the sElections may be, protests have been organized throughout the US. A nationwide Beyond Voting movement, sponsored by a broad coalition of anti-war/anti-empire/global justice organizations, is planning for street demonstrations in over 150 cities TODAY (Wednesday, Nov. 3), the day after the election, saying "No matter who wins, the world needs to hear that the people of the U.S. demand fundamental social, economic, and political change." In addition to protests, a World Party has been called for in cities all over the the US, and throughout the world.



N3 - The Day After: Bush Reelected, Street Protests Break Out Across US

Chicago, 03.11.2004 17:52

Shortly after 11 AM EST, Democratic Party Presidential hopeful John Kerry conceded defeat to George Bush - - after apparently abandoning efforts to challenge the election results based on the provisional ballots cast in hotly contested Ohio. Confronted with the prospect of Bush's reelection, the world is already bracing for an escalation of US attacks and violence in Iraq - particularly directed toward the people of Falluja. Anti-war and pro-democracy street protests have already been called for in 30 cities across the US.

Action Alert: In Chicago, a mobilization organized by a coalition of city's anti-war and social justice groups has been called for 5:00 PM today in Federal Plaza, 220 S. Dearborn. [ PDF Flyer ]

Several teams of people monitored elections events in several "battleground" states yesterday at the Institute for Policy Studies. Here they describe, briefly, some of the poblems that came up, from intimidation to obstacles to disenfranchisement. Many groups are saying they will call for mass protest if they see evidence of major electoral fraud or disenfranchisement.

criminalització del moviment okupa

Els ma$media produeixen estereotips i creen opinió basant-se en la desinformació. Mentres que l'especulació immobiliària és evident, en comptes d'informar sobre les seves causes, mostrar solucions i denunciar la ineficàcia o corrupció dels polítics, ara estan rentant la cara a especuladors com Porcioles, prenent, sense contrastar, com a font sempre a la policia i criminalitzant o silenciant al movimient okupa que denuncia la corrupció en aquest àmbit, la privatització dels espais públics i actúa en conseqüència. Ho fan amb adjectius com "guarros", "vagos", "gamberros", nens de papà, violents, etc. Llavors s'estranyen quan intenten cobrir un desallotjament i la gent els rebutja per la seva col.laboració amb la criminalizació (ABC - Levante). També obliden que una part de la societat recolza al moviment okupa. Sembla ser que la professió de periodista està a punt d'extingir-se, ja que si informes verídicament, probablement et despediran o patiràs mobbing, de manera que qui vol realment informar ha de buscar altres camins.

Never Give Up, Never Surrender: The Social Movement that Was and Is

Boston, 03.11.2004 15:51

Last night I followed a small group of members from United for Peace with Justice (UFPJ) into the growing crowd of Kerry supporters stationed at Copley Square waiting for the election results. They were nervous about how they would be received and a bit disappointed for the low turnout of protesters. Yet no one in the Kerry crowd seemed to reject their presence, instead taking plenty of “No More Wars” signs with them as if waiting for action if Kerry won.

November 3rd Nationwide Day of Action

Portland, 03.11.2004 14:11

Over 30 cities across the nation are mobilizing for a time of popular outrage and widespread non-cooperation if Bush is elected, if the elections are canceled, or if there is overt election fraud again. No matter who wins, we will be uniting to open up a new political space to define democracy as grassroots and participatory.

What if on the day after the presidential election people from all walks of life across America mobilized in their communities to go beyond voting and demonstrate our visions for a truy democratic society? Because the crisis of our democracy did not start with Bush and won't end with Kerry, the Beyond Voting campaign is calling for our election year debate to expand beyond Democrats versus Republicas to the larger issue of whether the U.S. will be a Democracy or an Empire. No matter who wins, we will be uniting to open up a new political space to define democracy as grassroots and participatory. [ Read More ]

Report-back from PPRC sElection night action downtown

Portland, 03.11.2004 07:30

In an election night action, PPRC marched to The Marriott where the Repugs were celebrating, then hopped MAX and headed to The Convention Center to meet up with Dems


About 50 regulars and others marched with the PPRC No War Drum Corp from across from the federal building downtown to the Marriott where the right wingers were gathering. We had a big, 40' long new banner, "END THE WARS." The day's rain had stopped in the still chilly night air.

Our regular chant leader, Tina, was back from her sabbatical giving birth to twin boys. We were high and enthusiastic to be together, after a day of odd uncertainty. We chanted, danced and drummed right up at the entrance to the Marriott. Michael was doing his cartwheels.

One violent incident took place. Den was bopping up by a door. Repugs were coming out and holding up 4 fingers (Shrub, 4 more years). About 3-4 police were also by the other doors. One of them, Delinko (sp?) stepped in and moved between Den and the Repugs coming out. In a swift swoop, that cop grabbed Den's small green justice flag, broke the stick off, and then took it inside the Marriott.

Live from Brookens

Urbana-Champaign, 03.11.2004 06:38

12:15am These reporters are sleepy and have to go home. We leave with Gill and Johnson close in Champaign County but knowing that the Congressional District is larger than the County. Rietz wins. No At Large is ahead by a wide margin. No election commission is ahead. Developmental Disabilities is ahead. Greens are expected to establish their districts in all three cases and in no case do they seem to be a "spoiler" factor. Mackaman is around 4% and may be able to break 5%. Jakobsson is the apparent winner in the State Rep race. That's all from Brookens tonight. 11:30pm For County Board race in district 9 Cunningham 12 reports 31% for Miller (Green), 48% McGinty (Democrat), 21% Moment (Republican) and in the State Rep race 8% for Socialist Mackaman. 10:45pm With 1 district 7 Champaign precinct reporting, Green party cadidate Ken Urban received 6% of the vote. Democrat Jane Anderson leads the race. In County Board district 9 race, Green Zach Miller received 17% of the vote in Cunnimgham 16. Upon hearing of Miller's 17% prominent Democrats were heard to say "that's not good." Republican Stu Moment leads in that race. Socialist Tom Mackaman received 3% with 3 precincts reporting. Jakobsson leads that race. Election Commission is taking a beating 62% no to 38% yes. Develomental Disabilities Board is ahead 55% yes to 45% no. Village of Foosland voted 39 votes to 10 to remain in existance. Rietz leads Piland 54% to 46%, Piland conceded and Rietz is giving her victory speech. 9:45pm In the County Board race, Cunningham 20, the first Urbana precinct to report, a tradtionally Rebublican district, shows 37 votes Green, 191 votes Democrat and 260 votes Republican. With 8% of the votes in the most conservative district 9 precinct the Greens are almost assured to establish their party. 9:30pm Results have been slow to come in. Only rural precincts have reported so far. We are only closely tracking ballot measures and county board races and leaving the rest to the final summaries. So far Developmental Disabilities Board is close. It is behind by 32 votes with 11 out of 117 precincts reporting. By the numbers it is yes 1061 no 1095 On the Electoral Commission vote is 746 yes to 1343 no. We have heard rumors that even with only rural precincts reporting that Rietz is ahead of Piland in the State's Attorney race. Media are also calling it for Johnson and Obama. IMC Reporters are live at Brookens Center Media Room where the Champaign County precinct returns will come in.

Possible Voting Irregularities in Felton

Santa Cruz, CA, 03.11.2004 02:42

Moments ago I voted in Felton, a small town near Santa Cruz, California. When I entered my polling place, St. John’s Catholic Church, the local priest told me that I had to take off my t-shirt before I voted. I had a picture of Bush on my chest framed by the words “international terrorist.” So I went back outside and turned my shirt inside out. Later I found out that election rules do prohibit the wearing of “political” clothes in the polling station. Fair enough. But, then they told me that I had to vote with a pencil...

On the voting booth there was a pink sign that clearly said "to mark your ballot use ONLY the Mark-A-Vote pen provided." We were only provided with pencils--there was not a single Mark-A-Vote pen in sight. When I pointed this out to the election officials, and voiced my concern that my pencil vote could be changed, they told me to use a blue ball point pen and then color over the pen marks with a pencil. But, they indicated that this might make it difficult for the electronic scantron machine to read my vote. One official made a call on her cell phone, and after she got off the phone she began taking down some of the signs that told voters to use the Mark-A-Vote pen. I took one of the signs and brought it home with me. My polling place is St. John's Catholic Church on Highway 9 at the corner of Russell Avenue in downtown Felton.
