Ten Years Later: Still No to the WTO!

United States, 27.11.2009 14:07

In late November and early December, a series of events will be held across the US commemorating the 10 year anniversary of the historic protests against the WTO in Seattle in 1999, and opposing the upcoming round of WTO meetings in Geneva, Switzerland. These talks are scheduled to take place November 30th through December 2nd — ten years to the day after the Seattle gathering. At these talks, government officials and corporate lobbyists will be promoting the expansion of business-as-usual trade policies as a solution to, rather than a cause of, the global economic and environmental crises. The commemoration also coincides with an international day of action on Nov 30 in advance of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change taking place in Copenhagen Dec. 7–28.

Protesters greet Sarah Palin at book signing

Rochester, 25.11.2009 23:07

Former Vice Presidential candidate, Governor and Mayor Sarah Palin was in Rochester November 21. A crowd of a thousand or more lined up outside Border's Books and Music in Henrietta to get an autographed copy of her new book Going Rogue: Life in America. Some had camped out overnight to obtain a copy. Those in line had some company. A loud and lively group of 75 protesters gathered to call attention to Palin's hypocritical and even dangerous policies. One marcher was even playing a tuba! The protest was largely peaceful. There was some heckling from both sides. One person was arrested after a verbal altercation with police.

Hundreds of Chicagoans March to Mourn Slain Gay Puerto Rican Teenager

Chicago, 25.11.2009 04:08

Jorge Steven Lόpez-Mercado, an openly gay teenager in in Caguas, Puerto Rico, was slain in November 2009. Lόpez-Mercado was decapitated, dismembered and partially burned, and his assailant claimed to be motivated by "gay panic". Many are drawing comparisons to the 1998 slaying of University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard.

Activists in a number of American cities held public gatherings to mourn the death of Lόpez-Mercado and to protest against the continuing climate of homophobia which spawns hate crimes. In Chicago, the Gay Liberation Network, along with representatives from Orgullo en Accion and Boricua Pride/ALMA held a march in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood.

Below are two recent dispatches from the IWW Delegation to Palestine that just arrived a few days ago. The delegation includes several activists from Philadelphia.

Selection from Nov.22 post: We were welcomed into the Federation of Independent Unions of Palestine office by Mohammed Aruri and his colleague Ghareeb formerly a worker at a pharmaceutical factory, now a volunteer of the union. At this small meeting, delegation members learned a bit about the Federation of Independent Palestinian Unions, which, as it turns out, is incredibly similar in mission and structure to the IWW...

Buy Nothing Day?

Rogue Valley, 25.11.2009 02:09

Buy Nothing Day (Friday, November 27th) is upon us again. Once again people are going to be out in large numbers, way too early in the morning the day after Thanksgiving just to get a deal. Is it really worth it?

The concept of “Buy Nothing Day” is lost on us so instead I propose the people make it “Buy Local Day”. Ideally we would fold that dollar back up and put it back in our wallets, but most of us know that will not happen. I say if we are going to spend money should it not be on something that will creating a lasting effect for our local economy and money that will stay within our communities.

David Shulman, writes: "I've been trying to explain in my talk why I keep going down to the South Hebron hills when, after all, our impact on the situation there is so minimal, so pointillist, the task so Sisyphean, the sense of futility so overwhelming. I claimed that despite all this, there is something good about being there, in those landscapes and with those people, and that it had something to do with the difference between truth and falsehood."

The Indypendent Issue 143: Neo Earth: Can Climate Justice Activists Stop the Geoengineering of the Planet?

NYC, 24.11.2009 17:08

International talks on climate change and solutions to global warming will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark from December 7-December 18. But already, the prospect of a politically binding agreement coming out of the summit are dimming, and activists have deemed the Copenhagan talks a failure before they have already begun.

The Indypendent brings you an in-depth package on climate change, the climate movement and Copenhagen, with Arun Gupta tackling the "shoddy fixes" of geoengineering and the market, Robert Eshelman on mountaintop removal in West Virginia and the fight for wind energy there, Jessica Lee on the diverse social movements planning to converge on Copenhagen, and Bryan Farell on how a growing climate justice movement has emerged.

Gupta writes, "Don’t believe that politicians and corporations lack the will to address climate change. They have the will to deny the science of climate change, the will to sabotage negotiations on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and the will to foist half-baked schemes on us to address global calamity.

This is why Copenhagen will not be a failure. It will be a stunning success. The wealthy and powerful have succeeded in blocking, for now, the shift to a society, economy and polity that sustains the vast breadth of humanity and the planet."

Also included in this issue: Arun Gupta interviews author and activist Raj Patel about his new book; Juan Gonzales and Steven Wishnia take on Bloomberg's third term; and John Tarleton writes on why the Seattle 1999 protests against the World Trade Organization still matter.
