Fascists rally in Nottingham

United Kingdom, 09.12.2009 19:09

The English Defence League (EDL) are a small fascist organisation which has been demonstrating against "Islamic extremism" in towns across the UK in recent months. Anti-fascist organisations say the group is anti-Muslim and fascist.

On Saturday 300-400 EDL members descended on Nottingham where most were held in a police pen near the castle all day. Their presence was opposed by a number of organisations including Notttinghamshire Stop the BNP and Unite Against Fascism (UAF) who rallied in Market Square and then marched down Friar Lane. A large number of autonomous fascists and local youths managed to avoid being kettled by the police.

The EDL demonstration repeatedly attacked police lines on Castle Boulevard but failed to escape their escorts. Fighting also broke out several times outside pubs in which EDL members were drinking, and photographs have been published showing EDL demonstrators urinating against the walls of Nottingham Castle.

Leslie Parks Illegally Locked Out of Her Home by IndyMac/One West Bank

United States, 09.12.2009 13:37

On Tuesday night, Dec. 8, in a freezing blizzard, Leslie Parks returned from her job to find that IndyMac/One West had changed the locks to her home (3749 Park Ave. in Minneapolis).

Locking Leslie Parks out of her home is illegal. In fact it is beyond illegal, given the struggle that Leslie Parks is waging to keep her home. It is a cynical breach of what all assumed were good faith negotiations on the part of IndyMac/One West.

After the start of national call-in week to IndyMac officials, IndyMac informed Leslie, in writing, on Nov. 25 that they were rescinding both the foreclosure and the sheriffs sale. According to Ms. Parks, “I got an email from IndyMac stating, and I quote, ‘In an effort to work with you and your mother and come to a resolution, we have started the process of rescinding the Trusteed Sale which took place on May 29, 2009.’

An Educational Event With the Olympic Resistance Network

Portland, 09.12.2009 01:38

The Olympic Resistance Network will be in Portland to teach about the devastating legacy and impacts of the Olympics as well as describe the state of movement that is building militant resistance to the Five Ring Circus. Come learn how we in Portland can stand in solidarity with our neighbors to the north!
The 2010 Winter Olympics will take place on unceded indigenous land in the Coast Salish Territories. Far from being simply about 'sport', the history of the Olympics is one rooted in displacement, corporate greed, fascism, repression, and violence. Those with the most to gain from the Olympics are the political and corporate elite - from real estate developers to private security corporations.

Seattle Inter-praxis

Portland, 09.12.2009 01:38

In the back of a truck on a rainy winter day we pull off I-5 into Seattle. High in the distance a banner hangs from a crane building condos. WTO this way, Democracy that. A guy holding incense flashes a victory sign greets cars as they go into downtown. We find our friends, the house we would be staying in for the week of the convention. This house near downtown became our trenches. We ate from cans of beans with pocket knives.
I was here to take pictures. I had been part of demonstrations in the months leading up to the WTO. I had captured images on film with an old Nikon-F that my father had given me. On our first night, we plastered a Starbucks with political posters. These protest posters were tokens of the revolution. This was before 9-11 so things felt hopeful. Environmental activists and Union activists coming together in unity, in solidarity.

Анархисты атаковали казино в центре Минска

Belarus, 08.12.2009 21:07

Сегодня, в 6.40 утра группой минских анархистов была предпринята атака на "VIP" казино "Шангри Ла" на улице Кирова. Вход в казино был закидан ламопчками с краской и пиротехническими факелами, а на стене рядом оставлена надпись "ТЕБЯ УЖЕ ПРОИГРАЛИ".

Об открытии нового казино на деньги российских капиталистов несколько дней подряд вещали наши СМИ, добавляя при этом, что минимальная сумма для игры в этом казино - 5 000 долларов ( Пять тысяч долларов... Вспомним, сколько в нашей стране получает средний молодой специалист, или просто трудящийся. В Минске это - 600-700 тысяч рублей, в регионах: 400-500 тысяч. По ряду специальностей люди получают еще меньше. Выходит, за один вечер российский или местный бизнесмен спускает в казино как минимум ДВУХЛЕТНЮЮ зарплату трудящегося, чтобы потом отправиться на BMW или Lexus-е в свой кабинет директора или топ-менеджера, рассказать рабочим, что работают они…

Portland Slumlord Hires Lawyer Instead Of Making Repairs

The $33,000,000 per year, so-called nonprofit corporation, Central City Concern, at the direction of $100,000 per year CEO and slumlord Ed Blackburn, has hired a lawyer -- instead of making needed repairs, adding staff to improve building security, and fixing persistent pest control problems. Tenant activists organized an initial picket, and are planning a second winter picket for December.

Portland's Fur Cruelty Awareness Campaign

Portland, 08.12.2009 01:38

The last year has been a strong one against the last fur shop in downtown Portland. However there are lapses with people unable to go for many reasons, and last Friday when I showed up at 3pm there wasn't a protest. If there is an opportunity in your schedule to make it, even for only an hour, please support the anti-fur outreach and make a difference to thousands of innocent lives.

Seattle N30 Commerative Rally at Westlake Park

Portland, 08.12.2009 00:38

I was there for the Peoples Summit in Seattle last weekend. I made a camcorder journey of the rally on Monday, November 30th. I'd say a couple hundred people showed up to protest and commemorate the 10 year anniversary of The Battle in Seattle. Two people were arrested in a lock down, A contingent of people went to their congressman and protest Fair Trade agreements. Another group went to a Seattle employer and protested the firing of immigrant workers. Speeches were made as well as theater. The Yes Men were present as well. I made a 26 minute video of that rally.

Audio and Photographs from D5

Portland, 08.12.2009 00:38

The D5 event was enthusiastic and well attended, with information tables, creative signs, puppets, music and theater. I'd say about 700 people met underneath the Hawthorne bridge to get acquainted and prepare the march to PSU.

Along the way there was a tug of war between the people and the wealthy at the Federal building, and at Hoffman Hall, wealthy men with cigars collected money and stuffed it into their pockets, dolling out pennies to the people.

At the Hall, various speakers addressed issues within the theme of Fair Trade.
Speakers at the Rally were: Lori Wallach (Global Trade Watch), Francisco Lopez (CAUSA Oregon), Barbara Byrd (Oregon Apollo Alliance), Brent Foster (Oregon Department of Justice), Ken Allen (Oregon AFSCME). The gathering was also entertained by musical acts Jim Page and Dr. Atomic's Medicine Show.

All praised the victory over the World Trade Organization (WTO)and the corporate Free Trade Agenda in Seattle in late 1999. But, Lori Wallach, Director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch division, went further, saying that stopping the WTO, in Seattle and other places, is only the first step. The next and most important step would be "to turn it around."

Open Letter to the Governor concerning OHSU's treatment of Women

Portland, 08.12.2009 00:38

This is a call for informed consent reform and the criminal prosecution of medical staff who participate in the "medical rape" of patients. ALL Oregon Rape victims are directed to OHSU for rape exams, even if they live hours away. Many simply accept the emergency care at their local hospital and go home. Women who are raped and make a mistake of going to OHSU, may suffer a second rape. Now I know folks do not like to call any sort of "medical care" rape, but times are changing and the laws need to change with them. Raped women who do not want to suffer a rape kit, or not with males present are forced, rather than accommodated, that is by any reasonable woman standard a second rape. OHSU may call the police, as if they have the right to give them permission to violate a patient's rights, or they may just sedate her and move forward. Now one might say, they need to catch the rapist, but OHSU has another, perhaps more influential motive for this second rape.

What Really Happens When You Take Your Dog to the Pound

Portland, 08.12.2009 00:38

Every year, thousands of people turn in their dogs and cats to county animal shelters. They all have their... "reasons." They will tell you how they "just couldn't care for him anymore," how they are moving, how they are having a baby, how they are downsizing, how the cat is peeing outside the box, how the dog has become a "handful." And they will tell themselves, and you, that it was the right thing to do, that it was for the good of the animal, that it is the best thing. They stupidly think the dog or cat will get a "good home."
If this is you, pull your head out. Let me tell you what really happens when you take an animal to the pound.

Let's talk about the Multnomah County Animal Shelter, but it could be any pound because they are all pretty much the same. The Multnomah county animal shelter has a kill rate of roughly 50% for dogs, and 75% for cats. That means that one out of every two dogs, and two out of every three cats who come through their doors will not get out of there alive. And that's only part of the story.

Protect public land: Tell NW Natural No Palomar Pipeline for LNG

Portland, 08.12.2009 00:38

The new Hey NW Natural Campaign is uniting gas customers with farmers to hold NW Natural accountable and protect our public lands. Over 1500 private landowners, two state forests and Mt. Hood National Forest are threatened by the pipeline. You can take action to protect Oregon farmers and public land.
Oregon gas giant, NW Natural, was recently forced by federal court to release the list of names of the 1500 Oregonian's whose land is threatened to be condemned for a right-of-way for the Palomar gas pipeline. Steve Wick was one of these names - Steve is an old time Oregonian who raises filberts and hopes to start raising grapes -- but now his plans are put on hold because of the threat of the pipeline.
He is not alone. This project poses an imminent threat to the land and livelihood of everyone on that list, at the direct hand of fossil fuel expansion and the desire for corporate profit. The 1500 named landowners along the pipeline route are not the only people impacted by the pipeline.
