Stonebridge City Farm under threat

United Kingdom, 12.01.2010 19:39

According to reports, Nottingham City Council are considering using green space at Stonebridge City Farm in St Ann's for a car park. A consultation of 31 local residents found that just under 50% of them were in favour of a scheme that would use up 10% of the farm's land for a car park. People involved in the farm have set up a petition to protest the move.

Stonebridge City Farm is an urban farm in the heart of St Ann's that has gardens open to the community. The farm actively involves people with disabilities and mental health problems in volunteer roles and grows food that local people can buy. The farm is the result of many years work of committed individuals. According to one supporter, the Council's attitude shows that they are unreliable partners and are not genuinely concerned with environmental issues. "[A]fter the effort has been put in over many years they will think nothing of putting people's work under tarmac."

Happy New Year, For Tenants Nothing's Changed!

Gus Ganley Wins $70,000 Settlement Resulting From August 2007 Critical Mass

United States, 12.01.2010 14:37

Another legal victory!  The Minneapolis City Council Ways & Means Committee has just approved a $70,800 settlement in a case filed by Gus Ganley and his attorney, Jordan Kushner, resulting from the August 31, 2007 Critical Mass ride.

That was the Critical Mass ride one year before the RNC, which the Minneapolis Police decided to use as a test case, beating, arresting, tasering, and macing a number of the participants for no cause.  Gus was among those arrested, maced and abused.  He was held overnight and eventually charged with assaulting a police officer and obstructing the legal process using force - both gross misdemeanors - and fleeing a police officer, a misdemeanor.  On April 14, 2008 he was acquitted of all charges, after a one week trial and five minutes of jury deliberation.  Videos and testimony showed that the cop who arrested him was lying.

Police Murder Trial: Community Demands for Justice for Victim Oscar Grant.

LA, 12.01.2010 04:39

The first hearing of the Mehserle murder trial in Southern California took place on Friday January 8, 2010. The 7am gathering and press conference in front of the L.A. Superior Court Building was in many ways a meet-and-greet between the newly formed LA Coalition For Justice for Oscar Grant and representatives from Oakland.

The Oakland coalition originally formed itself out of a spontaneous rebellion when Mehserle, a BART police officer, shot Oscar Grant in the back execution style last New Year’s day. The coalition and the Oakland community insured, through a relentless effort, that the cop would be tried for murder and not a lesser charge.

When the trial was moved to Los Angeles after the Mehserle defense argued that he couldn’t obtain a fair trail in Alameda County, the Los Angeles community banded together in a show of strength to show solidarity with the Oakland coalition and the family of Oscar Grant in order to guarantee a conviction of the police officer.

The Iranian Nuke Forgeries

DC, 11.01.2010 20:10

CIA Determines Documents Were Fabricated U.S. intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by the Times of London, which purportedly describes an Iranian plan to do experiments on what the newspaper described as a "neutron initiator" for an atomic weapon, is a fabrication, according to a former Central Intelligence Agency official. The Times of London story published Dec. 14 did not identify the source of the document. But it quoted "an Asian intelligence source" - a term some news media have used for Israeli intelligence officials - as confirming that his government believes Iran was working on a neutron initiator as recently as 2007.

Censored: Forgotten People on Black Mesa

Portland, 11.01.2010 14:39

January 10, 2010 - The mainstream media continued aiding and abetting the dirty coal industry this week, in the genocidal targeting of American Indian lands for toxic and polluting industries that the rest of the world doesn't want in their backyards.

Hopi and Navajo fighting Peabody Coal mining on Black Mesa celebrated a victory this week when the US Interior Dept. rejected a mining permit for Peabody Coal. It is a victory that the majority of the mainstream media is ignoring. Hopi and Navajo have made it easy for even the laziest journalist, or the newspaper without a dime for travel, to cover the story. There are press statements online with abundant quotes from the Hopi and Navajo who took the action and live on the land. Their phone numbers are also on their press statements, so the mainstream media has no excuse. Censored News will even send the judge's order by e-mail to anyone that requests it.

It seems the mainstream media doesn't want to admit the truth about mining on Black Mesa. Journalists do not want to take the time to understand the facts.

Protest at Tesla Motors' Menlo Park Dealership

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.01.2010 09:39

On January 9, the Raging Grannies joined worker safety advocates in protesting plans by Tesla Motors, Inc. to build an auto assembly plant in Downey, California. Downey is the location of a major film studio built on the site of a former NASA plant that produced spacecraft for the Apollo moon missions. Despite cleanup efforts meant to protect workers from the toxic residue of aerospace experiments and manufacturing, dozens of film production workers have developed severe health problems while working in Downey. Some have never recovered.

Take Action Now to Stop the LNG Bill

Rogue Valley, 09.01.2010 01:09

Take Action Now to Stop the LNG Fast Track Bill!
Work Session for "LC 85" Scheduled for Next Week

In the last Oregon legislative session we worked hard to successfully defeat House Bill 3058, the LNG Fast-track bill. That bill that would have undermined property rights and threatened natural resources by allowing pipeline and utility companies to get permits to fill wetlands on private lands without landowner permission, thereby hastening the permitting process for LNG-related pipelines. Now, Senator Metsger is proposing the same bill for the February Special Session and we need to tell our elected leaders that this is not acceptable!



Mumia; Knastarbeit + Todesstrafe: VA Bericht

Germany, 08.01.2010 21:09

Während sich in den letzten Wochen viele Auseinandersetzungen um den Weltklimagipfel und die neuesten Rechtfertigungsversuche der Konzerne und ihre Regierungslobbyisten kreisten, fand im "verlassenen" Berlin am 16. Dezember eine Veranstaltung über politische Repression und die Angleichungen zwischen den USA und Europa statt. Schwerpunkt bildete dabei ein weiteres Mal der Fall von Mumia Abu-Jamal, allerdings anders als auf der 2009er Mumia-Infotour. Verschiedene AktivstInnen hatten sich in der Ladengalerie der Tageszeitung Junge Welt getroffen, um vor und mit ca. 60 ZuschauerInnen zu diskutieren.



Zur Repression nach den Anti-Nato-Protesten

Germany, 08.01.2010 21:09

Im Folgenden wollen wir einen stichpunktartigen Überblick zu den Ereignissen während des NATO-Gipfels in Strasbourg im April 2009 geben. Oft wird vergessen, dass die Repressionen für die Betroffenen noch lange nach dem eigentlichen Protesten spürbar sind. Immer noch stehen Prozesse aus und Menschen sitzen im Knast. Dies sollte kein Thema sein, an dem sich einzelne Gruppen speziell abarbeiten, vielmehr sollte Solidarität aus den politischen Aktivitäten aller hervorgehen und allgegenwärtig sein.Auch die aktuellen Beispiele in Kopenhagen zeigen, dass die Unterdrückung von Protest mit staatlichen Mitteln jeden Menschen treffen kann. Die einzelnen europäischen Polizeibehörden arbeiten immer besser zusammen und tauschen „Strategien zur Aufstandsbekämpfung“ aus und nennen es „Managing Crowds“. Demzufolge ist es offensichtlich, dass Antirepressionsarbeit besser vernetzt werden muss und nicht den Charakter eines Events haben kann. Ein Denken in Schwarz-Weiß-Schemata, bezüglich unterschiedlicher Protestformen und darauf folgende Repression, erübrigt sich bei mehr als tausend Festnahmen. Die Null-Toleranz-Einstellung der EU-Polizeien und Behörden ist deutlich geworden, lasst uns ihr entschlossen entgegentreten.Feature | Augenzeugenbericht

Por amor al arte: fotos mani-fiesta-acci�n de hoy en iru�ea

Euskal Herria, 08.01.2010 19:39

Diversos colectivos de la cultura navarra se han unido esta tarde en una mani-fiesta-acci�n celebrada hoy en Iru�ea con el objetivo de reivindicar un "un plan cultural s�lido que trabaje a largo plazo y no est� a expensas de la aprobaci�n de unos presupuestos anuales">

Han reivindicado una cultura que aprecie los contenidos y no s�lo los continentes, que no est� a la merced de los grupos pol�ticos que gobiernen, que no s�lo trabaje para una fecha en concreto, como el 2016, sino para todos los a�os futuros. En su manifiesto solicitaron "apoyo a las actividades culturales y festivas", con el fin de que la cultura "no s�lo alegre el interior de teatros, salas o museos, sino tambi�n el paisaje urbano". |M�s imagenes de la protesta|.

En la noche del lunes al martes, la Policia Nacional Espa�ola en una operaci�n conjunta con la Guardia Civil detuvo a 34 j�venes en diferentes localidades de Euskal Herria.

Las reacciones y movilizaciones que se han sucedido se han extendido por innumerables pueblos y ciudades de Euskal Herria.

Los j�venes independentistas publicaron una nota antes de sus detenciones reafirmando su compromiso.

Egunkaria Libre!

Euskal Herria, 08.01.2010 19:39

Desde el cierre de Euskaldunon Egunkaria, se ha ido consolidando en Euskal Herria un movimiento social a favor de la libertad de expresi�n y el Euskara. Esta lucha ha contado con el gran apoyo de mucha gente desde que en 2003 fueran detenidos y torturados 10 trabajadores de Egunkaria acusados de pertenecer a ETA. Grande tambi�n ha sido el apoyo recibido por proyectos que surgieron despu�s (como Egunero o el actual Berria).

Ahora, s�lo con las acusaciones particulares de AVT y Dignidad y Justia, la Audiencia Nacional de Espa�a someter� a Xabier, Txema, Jose Mari, I�aki y Martxelo a un juicio que comenzar� la pr�xima semana. En la medida en que este proceso y lucha nos incluye a todxs, con la intenci�n y deseo de volver a reunir a multitud de gente, los imputados por el caso convocan a una Manifestaci�n Nacional para el pr�ximo 19 de diciembre en Bilbo. Sum�ndose a la convocatoria, habr� movilizaciones en otros lugares. Est� por ver si se har� en Madrid donde, continuando en la represi�n a la libertad de expresi�n, el Gobierno Civil ha prohibido la manifestaci�n que all� se iba a realizar.

Estos a�os ha sido enorme el trabajo de hormiga que se ha hecho para unir e informar a la gente tanto dentro como fuera de Euskal Herria. Mediante encuentros y charlas que han realizado pueblo por pueblo, a trav�s de numerosas y concurridas concentraciones y eventos, entre otras actividades, las adhesiones y la solidaridad han ido en aumento. Para recoger y sistematizar toda la informaci�n sobre el caso, gestionan y mantienen una p�gina totalmente actualizada. Para dar a conocer esta informaci�n tambi�n a nivel internacional, han abierto recientemente Egunkaria.info/Internationala. Berria, por su parte, tambi�n dar� cobertura especial y continua al juicio.

M�s informaci�n: | Seguimiento que se hace del juicio en Sustatu|, |Manifestaci�n hist�rica de 2003, |Manifiesto|, |Informe del cierre realizado por Behatokia|, |Plataformas a favor de Egunkaria Catalu�a, Madrid, Arag�n|.



Egunkaria libre! Participa, difunde, escucha... en directo!!!

Euskal Herria, 08.01.2010 19:39

Estos d�as se ha puesto en marcha la iniciativa Egunkarialibre.info que por medio del trabajo colectivo anima a que todxs participemos a favor de Egunkaria, con fotos, mensajes, informaci�n, grabaciones, im�genes, opiniones o lo que se ofrezca. Sum�ndose as� a otros esfuerzos que se han ido dando. Se quiere hacer una cobertura especial de la mani de Bilbo al estilo de lo que se hizo cuando la huelga general de mayo. Participa!!! Se proponen distintas formas de echar la mano. Para organizar lo que se vaya a hacer se ha quedado a las 12.00 en Kafe Antzokia de Bilbo y despu�s... todxs a la manifa!

Transmisi�n de radio en directo desde Bilbo

Junto con Egunkarialibre.info e irrati.com tambi�n de manera colectiva y participativa se emitir� en directo tanto en FM como por Internet, a trav�s de Bilbo Hiria irratia todo lo que vaya ocurriendo, a partir de las 17.00 por las calles de Bilbo.

A un a�o de la masacre, crece la solidaridad con Palestina

Euskal Herria, 08.01.2010 19:39

Se cumple ahora un a�o de la operaci�n "Plomo Fundido" lanzada por el Estado de Israel contra la Franja de Gaza entre diciembre de 2008 y enero de 2009 y que produjo la muerte de 1.416 palestinos y miles m�s heridos, desplazadas o con sus hogares destruidos. Para que este ataque no se olvide y como homenaje a las victimas y al pueblo palestino que sigue en lucha, durante estos d�as se realizan varias iniciativas

Por un lado, y partiendo de una iniciativa a nivel internacional este final de a�o nos trae la Marcha por la libertad de Gaza, que acercar� a este territorio ocupado y aislado a cientos de militantes que intentar�n romper el cerco al que Israel somete a este territorio. Desde Egipto, desde el Sina�, desde los territorios ocupados,... m�s de mil personas intentar�n entrar en Gaza y llevar la solidaridad internacional a este pueblo castigado. Se pueden seguir las noticias en este blog: Solidarios en Gaza. Tambi�n desde Euskal Herria tenemos gente participando en esta iniciativa.

Cr�nicas desde la Marcha: |2 de enero, en la frontera con Gaza|, |30 de diciembre|, |Manifestaciones en Al Cairo (30-31 diciembre): 1, 2 |, |Saliendo hacia Rafah (martes, 29)|, |Decenas de internacionales secuestrados por la polic�a egipcia en Al-Arish|, |domingo 27 de diciembre|, |s�bado 26 de diciembre|.

Por otro lado, el 18 de enero, d�a que finalizaron los ataques de Israel, se llevar� a cabo una iniciativa para proyectar el documental "To shoot an elepphant (TSAE)" en el m�ximo de lugares posibles, un screeening global. Grabada en los d�as del ataque, el documental narra, desde el interior de la Franja de Gaza, lo ocurrido durante aquellos d�as. Convertido en narraci�n directa y privilegiada de los bombardeos quiere ser herramienta para hacer frente a la propaganda israel� y al silencio internacional. Desde IndymediaEH animamos a participar a cualquier kolectibo o gente y mostrar tambi�n desde Euskal Herria, nuestra solidaridad con el pueblo palestino. Las copias del documental se pueden conseguir a trav�s de la p�gina web o enviando un correo.

Adem�s de su valor narrativo y de denuncia, TSAE es ejemplo de trabajo colectivo, horizontal y aut�nomo, que pretende innovar en las maneras y modos de llevar a cabo trabajos audiovisuales, tanto en el propio proceso de producci�n como en su distribuci�n y comunicaci�n. Apostando deliberadamente por herramientas de trabajo colectivo y licencias Creative Commons queremos que el documental trascienda los l�mites de quienes lo producen y que se convierta en material de quien lo ve.

Clare Bayard Writes on The Ethnic Cleansing in East Jerusalem

San Francisco Bay Area, 07.01.2010 16:09

Clare Bayard, from Dialogues Against Militarism, writes: In Silwan, a neighborhood of East Jerusalem adjacent to the Old City, Palestinian families sometimes demolish their own homes when the notice comes because they can't afford to pay the fines levied upon people after the army bulldozes their houses. Sometimes the eviction notice gives them days, and other times a few hours to pull out several generations' of possessions before the house is demolished. Sometimes people are given 15 minutes to get out of their house before tear gas is fired through the windows.



Albertsons Illegal Coupon Food Stamp Tax

Rogue Valley, 07.01.2010 14:09

Ashland, Oregon Albertsons charges an Oregon mom tax for using coupons and paying with food stamps.

The extra charges happened randomly and never added up to much, but fifty cents here and a dollar there eventually started nagging at her conscience. Why was an Oregon mom charged a "tax" at Albertsons when she used coupons and paid with food stamps? She tested several theories and finally concluded that this "tax" was charged only at the Ashland, Oregon store when she used manufacturer coupons and Catalina coupons.
