March for Immigrants' Rights on May 1 - Our Alternative to the Tea Parties

United States, 29.04.2010 16:07

Progressives, workers and social justice activists have Latin@ immigrants to thank for revitalizing May 1st in the United States and 2010 is the year to join the marches in high numbers. May Day is International Workers Day, celebrated world-wide but born in the United States in 1886 when there were over 11,000 strikes for the 8-hour day. To draw workers away from the political dissent and international solidarity of May Day, business interests invented the apolitical Labor Day holiday. But, in recent years, hundreds of thousands of immigrants—most from Mexico—have brought May Day back to fiery life. This year, we must not only stand with immigrants but, also, stand up for ourselves.

This is a call for many movements to unite on May Day: those working for immigrant rights and human rights; those active around police accountability; African-American and Native American communities who have been hardest hit by the Great Recession with high unemployment and those trying to organize a union at their job; the peace movement which must call for a re-ordering of priorities from war to needs at home.

Marchers Protest Syracuse Drone Base

Rochester, 28.04.2010 16:38

100 or more marchers walked over 3 miles through Syracuse, New York on April 25 to protest the use of Hancock Air Field as a base of control for the unmanned aerial drones being used to attack targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan. A drone is a small propeller driven remote controlled aircraft. It has no pilot or gunner. It is controlled by video and computers from the other side of the world. The “pilot” can sit down at what looks like a video game console, destroy an entire village, and then go home. Meanwhile those in the village that was hit, if they survived, have no home to go to. The event was organized by the Syracuse Peace Council and brought in supporters from Albany, Utica, Watertown, Binghamton, Ithaca, Rochester, Buffalo and New York City.



Oakland Teachers to Strike April 29th

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.04.2010 07:10

After having worked for over two years without a contract, Oakland teachers watched the Oakland Unified School Board unilaterally impose a labor contract last week. The new contract largely ignores the recommendations of a recent fact-finding panel, allows for no pay increases for teachers, increases class sizes, lays off teachers, and threatens adult education programs. A one-day city-wide strike has been called for April 29th. Oakland teachers are asking community members to join the pickets at neighborhood public schools in the early morning then rally at Frank Ogawa Plaza at noon.

AZ Gov. Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio Wear Nazi Uniforms in New Ad This Week

Portland, 27.04.2010 21:39

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 27, 2010

FULL-PAGE AD COMPARING NAZI TREATMENT OF JEWS TO ARIZONA'S NEW IMMIGRATION LAW 1070 TO APPEAR THIS WEEK IN THE PHOENIX NEW TIMES NEWSPAPER; CALLS FOR A REGIME CHANGE IN ARIZONA

See R.E.M.'s "AZ1070" ad at http://www.responsibleeducationandmedia.org/az1070.html

PHOENIX, AZ: In response to the signing of Arizona Senate Bill 1070 last week, a new ad is set to run this week in Phoenix depicting Governor Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Nazi uniforms with the message, "We Need A Regime Change." The ad, placed by the nonprofit group Responsible Education and Media (R.E.M.), will appear in the Phoenix New Times beginning Thursday, April 29.

The SB 1070 is a controversial new anti-immigration law signed by Brewer on April 23, making illegal immigration a state crime and allowing law enforcement officers to inquire into the immigration status of any person within the state. Individuals found to not have valid identification are subject to arrest and may be charged with violating this new law.

Racist Arizona: report back from Phoenix protests Friday-Sunday 4/23-25

Brief notes from the protests I am from Eugene and drove to Phoenix to protest SB 1070, a law that was passed on friday which now makes it illegal to be in Arizona if you do not have papers. There are supposedly 500,000 undocumented workers, motsly from Mexico, in the state.

The rallies were large for a conservative city like Phoneix, mostly Hispanic, but with a few white people. Friday was a youth rally and youth march; mostly highschool students walked ten miles, from Glendale to the capitol. There was a twenty-four hour vigil on saturday, and huge crowds on Sunday to hear congressmen Grijalva and Guttierez speak.

Arizona's Attack on Immigrants

Arizona's recently passed law as of Friday allows police to racially profile and sets dangerous precedent for the rest of the country. How we should respond. Arizona has opened the way for Gestapo tactics to enforce immigration laws. As of Friday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed the toughest law against undocumented workers or "illegal immigration" in this country. The law once it takes affect would make it a crime to be in the state illegally and requires police to check suspects for immigration paperwork. The law will clean up everything law enforcement has not been able to do in the past few years obligating officers to determine immigration status often through racial profiling or if they have "reasonable suspicion" that someone is an "illegal immigrant". A person could be subject to an immigration check without breaking any laws and charged with state trespassing. Arizona has become the leader of anti-immigration legislation and a laboratory for anti-immigration measures that sets a dangerous precedent for the rest of the country.

Police Abolition March Communique

Portland, 27.04.2010 21:39

We took to the streets yet again last night (4/26). This was an anarchist police abolition march, which meant no reformist chants and no holding back. We went to the military recruitment center on 14th and Broadway, smashed every available window, and pelted the computers. This target is relevant because soldiers are the cops of the world. Just as the Portland Police commit racist hate crimes and enforce and oppressive social order, so to do soldiers abroad.

We also hit two Wells Fargo bank branches. Wells Fargo is the largest financial backer of G.E.O. group, which owns a majority of the privatized prisons in North America. G.E.O. group owns the northwest immigrant detention center in Tacoma, which every year kills immigrants through deplorable living conditions and denial of medical services.

A Bank of America branch was smashed as well. Their recklessness alongside other banks has caused a crisis of foreclosure and unemployment that is endemic of capitalism.

„Überall da, wo sie uns nicht haben wollen“

Germany, 27.04.2010 19:40

Nach langen Jahren der Agonie hat sich die Anti-Atom-Bewegung mit voller Wucht zurückgemeldet. Bei den für Deutschland größten Anti-Atom-Protesten aller Zeiten demonstrierten rund 150.000 Menschen bundesweit gegen die Pläne der schwarz-gelben Bundesregierung, den Atomausstieg aufzukündigen. Überall, wo die Parteien das Bild nicht beherrschten, gingen die Forderungen aber deutlich weiter – so wurde bereits im Aufruf zur zentralen süddeutschen Demonstration im südhessischen Biblis der sofortige Ausstieg gefordert. Auch wurde vielfach der Zusammenhang zwischen der Atomenergie und unserer kapitalistischen Gesellschaftsordnung thematisiert. Prompt provozierten Nazis in Biblis. Schon im Vorfeld kam es zu einer Demonstration in Frankfurt a. M. und zu einem Anti-Atom-Flashmob in Heidelberg. Für den Schrottreaktor Krümmel gab es eine Woche zuvor einen neuen Transformator, wogegen sich Treck und eine Menschenkette formierte.. Auch nach Ahaus wurde mobilisiert.

Whose streets? Our streets?

United Kingdom, 27.04.2010 13:09

Mayday, 1st May, is a day of anti-capitalist workers' struggle. Traditionally, Nottingham's contribution has been a march through the town centre and a rally of anti-capitalist campaigns and agitators. For the past few years, this gathering has taken place in Brewhouse Yard near Nottingham castle. However, this year the City Council have been putting all manner of obstacles in the organisers' way.

Permission for a rally in Brewhouse Yard was refused because "there were going to be Robin Hood activities in other places"! Permission was finally granted for the rally in Victoria Park on the St Ann's end of town but only subject to restrictive conditions such as displaying the Council logo on all publicity, displaying Council banners and was subject to a charge... all for using a 'public' park. In addition, organisers are having to pay to get roads closed for the march.

All of this has led one of the organisers to question whether the streets and public spaces of Nottingham really do belong to the people or are just an extension of the City Council's private fiefdom. These restrictions have very serious impacts on people's freedom to protest and assemble, as demonstrated by recent police crackdowns on festivals, such as the Strawberry Fair in Cambridge.

MayDay rally and march from 11am, Victoria Park, Bath Street.

Oregonians' Bias Coverage on Confederate Bed Store/EyeSore

Portland, 27.04.2010 09:39

Dixie Mattress Co., the bed store with the two confederate flags out front located on the 3300 block of SE Belmont, has been bought & sold. The new owners have yet to be identified, & their plans for the long shuttered store-front are as yet unknown. The Oregonian had an article about this in yesterdays' edition, Friday April 23, 2010 Metro section page B3. The article, as typical for the corperate, slowly dying paper, was extremely bias to the point of obscene. In 2008 a decent citizen took it upon him/herself to cover up the two conferderate/klan flags with decals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Many of you may recall this
