Anti-Tar Sands Protests Gather Momentum

United Kingdom, 15.04.2010 09:10

This time last year, few people in the UK had even heard of the Alberta Tar Sands. Now they are moving rapidly up the public agenda, thanks largely to a growing grassroots campaign of resistance and international solidarity. The latest example of this has been the national “Fortnight of Shame” (April 1st- 15th 2010) to oppose BP's planned involvement in the tar sands, which came to a head on Saturday 10th with protests in London, Oxford, Brighton and Cambridge, including a Party at the Pumps in Sheperds Bush and which culminates on Thursday 15th April with a BP + Tar Sands = Climate Crime protest, 10:00-13:30 at the Excel Conference Centre [ map | photo ].

TAX WALL STREET DAY OF ACTION - Apr. 15, 2010

Rogue Valley, 15.04.2010 05:10

For 30 years, corporate CEOs and Wall Street speculators have put the squeeze on workers with globalization, privatization and union-busting.

They used their rising profits to buy Congress, convincing them to hand out tax breaks to the rich and gut banking regulations and consumer protections. Then they invented unscrupulous mortgage and investing practices, turning our financial system into a casino. When their speculation didn't pay off, they got Congress to bail them out to the tune of $15,000 for every household in America.

A tax on the speculators of the Wall Street casino could put 3 million people to work fixing our infrastructure, teaching our children, making our factories sustainable and improving our public services.

Portland, 14.04.2010 17:39

Cornelius man dies in police custody after being Tasered

Portland, 14.04.2010 17:39

Police are using Taser© exactly how the Industry expected-- shoot first, ask later.
Another mentally ill person was Taser©ed to death by police.

An unidentified Cornelius Public Safety officer used his Taser© to "subdue the man, who was acting erratic and violent who struggled and continued to walk east on North Irvine Street at 31st Street."

When two Forest Grove police officers were called to assist in apprehending the individual, the was used again multiple times as well as pepper spray. The man died "suddenly" a short while later-- he stopped breathing.

Commander Ed Jensen insists that Cornelius police get sufficient training in dealing with mental health crises and using Taser©s, these police officers appeared to be either unaware or unable to recognise and respond to a person clearly exhibiting behavior of a person in a mental health crisis and they were also unable to 'properly' use the Taser©. Namely, in this very situation the weapon would not produce the desired response ESPECIALLY the MORE it is used. The lack of response from the first usage is a direct result of the man being in an altered state. The cardiac arrest is a direct result of using a Taser© in such a way.



Until We Win: West Coast Solidarity Emerges in Response to Police Violence

Portland, 14.04.2010 17:39

Anarchists and other radicals in Oakland, San Francisco, Seattle, and Olympia picked up the banner of anti-police sentiment bravely after the March 29 march in Portland received much corporate coverage as a "riot." Friends of friends of friends exist in every major city. People were talking.

Within a few days, a call-out occurred for West Coast days of solidarity on April 8th and 9th. It is unknown which city first made the call. Pre-existing relationships between anarchists of different cities were used to coordinate action, as well as independent media websites such as Portland Indymedia and Indybay.

&quot;But wasn't the latest killing justified?&quot;

Portland, 14.04.2010 17:39

This is something that's been asked a lot lately: "But wasn't the officer's use of deadly force justified? I can see why people got angry about something like the beating of Rodney King, which was obviously breaking the law. But the shooting of Jack Dale Collins, for example, was by the book, and as such justified." So why continue protesting? Aren't masked anarchists really just hooligans looking for any ridiculous excuse to cause trouble?
Well it's technically true that all of Portland's recent cases of death-by-cop have been "justified." And that's exactly the problem.

Grecja: polowanie na anarchistów

Poland, 13.04.2010 21:10

W sobotę we wczesnych godzinach rannych rozpoczęła się w Atenach szeroko zakrojona operacja przeciw domniemanym członkom organizacji Walka Rewolucyjna (WR). Aresztowano jak dotąd 6 osób wykorzystując w tym celu paragrafy ustawy antyterrorystycznej. Jednocześnie w mediach rozpoczęła się kampania oskarżeń wobec całego ruchu anarchistycznego i aresztowanych osób – dziennikarze wbrew prawu i zasadom etyki ujawnili ich personalia i przed wyrokiem sądu oskarżyli o przynależność do WR. W odpowiedzi na tę nagonkę, anarchiści w ramach akcji solidarnościowej rozpoczęli okupację ateńskiej politechniki - wczoraj wieczorem znajdowało się tam ok. 500 osób.

On February 8th, 2010, the UC Santa Cruz judicial affairs office sent approximately 45 emails to various undergraduate and graduate students.

Communique/Statement Of Responsibility

Portland, 13.04.2010 00:38

We smashed your "community corrections" center. We smashed it to send a message. Our message is that all cops are murderers and all prison is torture.
Allow us to elaborate: though the anti-police movement may use individual instances of murder with guns, tasers, and pepper spray as catalysts for revolution, we hold every cop or cop-supporter culpable. This is because on a daily basis cops are killing people slowly, with handcuffs and pens; killing them 5, 10, 20 years at a time but killing them still the same. We believe that a life in prison doesn't even come close to anything resembling a decent human life. Humans are a social animal, and forced isolation (whether that isolation is from ones peers, friends, family, or trees, grass sunlight, and the natural world) is an abominable act that must be forbidden by any society which held justice in any regard.

We believe this movement will be successful, and that the key to its success will be cooperation.
