New Collaborations, Responses to SB1070 Mark 2010 May Day Demonstrations

United States, 08.05.2010 02:08

From LA-IMC: May 1, 2010: The air was electrified by a presence not felt since the Gran Marcha of 2006. Tens of thousands marched through downtown Los Angeles in solidarity with Arizona's victims of a new law that effectively legalizes racial profiling. The new Arizona law has been denounced by President Obama, DHS Head Janet Nopalitano, the Mayor of Phoenix, the Sheriff of Pima County (Arizona), and even some Republicans who see it as draconian legislation. Demonstrations were held nationwide and cities throughout the nation are reporting sizable turnouts. Read more with photos

From Rochester IMC: "Today is the day the world celebrates the struggle of workers who won the 8 hour work day. Its a Holiday that started here in America and is celebrated all over the world, except for in America. They took it away from us years ago because it was too scary and too dangerous and we asked too many questions. The last few years in cities around the country workers have been fighting to bring it back, for Immigration Reform, for workers rights, for all the things that we fight for to make our lives better."

The Santa Cruz May Day Riot

Santa Cruz, CA, 07.05.2010 21:39

On the night of Saturday, May 1st, May Day, there was a dance party to mark International Workers' Day, which began at the clock tower in downtown Santa Cruz. During the event, around 250 people roved through the streets in a mixture of dancing, partying and protesting. A smaller number of people, some wearing masks or bandanas on their face, carried torches, spray painted graffiti, broke windows at an estimated 18 downtown businesses, and caused an estimated $100,000 in damage. In addition, a squad car of a cop who responded was reportedly pelted with rocks, surrounded, and paint was poured on the hood.

Scapegoats, Serco and Solidarity

United Kingdom, 07.05.2010 12:39

Another week of the election, another week of scapegoating migrants equals another week in which the deportation machine strides on; imprisoning men, women and children before deporting them to wherever is most expedient. The mainstream political parties' rhetoric surrounding immigration has become less and less distinguishable from that of the BNP. They point their fingers at migrants, positioning one group of oppressed and marginalised people as the cause of others dispossession of other groups.

This anti-migrant discourse is further developed by the mainstream press - including the Nottingham Evening Post - who seek to flog their rags with sensational headlines which blame migrants for all of society’s ills, unwilling or unable to develop a broader analysis.

Meanwhile, resistance continues in the form of migrant protests within the detention estate and solidarity attacks on the companies profiting from running migrant prisons, such as Serco.

Contra la Europa del Capital

Euskal Herria, 07.05.2010 12:09

Durante el primer semestre de 2010, el Estado espa�ol acoge la presidencia de turno de la Uni�n Europea; una presidencia marcada por la reciente aprobaci�n por "v�a directa" del Tratado de Lisboa. Este tratado mantiene en esencia las mismas pol�ticas y aspiraciones de la Constituci�n Europea que ya hab�a sido rechazada en refer�ndum en 2004. Es decir, desregulaci�n del mercado, privatizaci�n de los servicios p�blicos y desinversi�n en pol�ticas sociales en favor de la industria militar. Adem�s, el Tratado de Lisboa otorga personalidad jur�dica propia a la Uni�n Europea para firmar acuerdos internacionales a nivel comunitario, lo que sin duda har� valer para fortalecer y fomentar sus pol�ticas de libre mercado durante uno de los actos centrales de la presidencia: la VI Cumbre birregional Uni�n Europea-Am�rica Latina y el Caribe (UE-ALC), que reunir� del 18 al 21 de mayo en Madrid, a los altos mandatarios de los pa�ses involucrados, bajo el lema Hacia una nueva etapa en la asociaci�n birregional: Innovaci�n y Tecnolog�a para el desarrollo sostenible y la cohesi�n social. Pero, �de qu� trata realmente esta cumbre? �Cu�les son sus precedentes?

Desde m�ltiples organizaciones y plataformas se est�n organizando la respuesta. Porque todo lo que se decida en esta cumbre nos afectar�. Porque posiblemente nos enteraremos cuando ya sea demasiado tarde. Porque nadie nos consultar�, porque no podemos participar, porque s�lo nos quieren como espectadores, una vez m�s, de este circo "democr�tico" del que penden miles de vidas...: |Campa�a en Euskal Herria Contra la Europa del Capital y las Guerras|, |Programa de las jornadas en EH durante todo mayo: Contra la Europa del Capital y las Guerras |, |Jornadas enlazando conflictos ambientales |, |Cumbre de los Pueblos Enlazando Alternativas IV 14-18 mayo en Madrid|, |Rompamos el Silencio: 16-20 de mayo en Madrid|.

Venezuela Bilateral Relations with the U.S.

DC, 07.05.2010 00:10

April 7 2010 Show: Andrew Willis Garces, of Save Our Safety Net -, raises concerns about $100 million in cuts in safety net programs by Mayor Fenty. Garces pointed out that people who make $40,000/year are paying the same DC taxes as those making millions in income, and the Mayor needs to collect more taxes from those with higher income. The main focus of the show is correcting the mainstream media portrayal on Venezuala, specifically addressing these issues: Has the U.S. relations with Venezuela really changed with the Obama administration? Or is it more of the same as with Bush? Livia Suarez, press attache of Venezuela Embassy, and Eva Golinger, Venezuelan-American attorney speak. Audio

DC Doesn't Work Without Child Care For All

Time has almost run out. In less than two weeks the city council will vote on Mayor Fenty’s proposed budget for 2011. If changes aren’t made before then the subsidized child-care program, which has been under-funded for years, will be cut even further. As a result child-care centers, which are also local businesses owned and staffed mostly by women, will close. Empower DC's Child Care For All campaign hosts a press conference to protest cuts in the subsidized child care program. Video || Empower DC

Griechenland im Klassenkampf

Germany, 06.05.2010 22:09

In der deutschen Presselandschaft überschattet eine Meldung über den Tod von drei Menschen die "Berichterstattung" über den Klassenkampf, der bereits seit dem 1. Mai offen stattfindet. Unabhängige Berichterstattung ist schwer zu finden, Indymedia Athen wurde angegriffen, ist inzwischen aber wieder online. Wie schon beim G20 in London werden aber schnell Zweifel an der in Massenmedien verbreiteten Version laut. Augenzeugenberichten von Angestellten der Bank zu folge wurden Menschen von ihren Vorgesetzten in der Bank eingeschlossen, in Österreich wird über Gerüchte spekuliert, der Bankbrand war selbst gelegt um Akten über Steuerhinterziehung zu vernichten. Derweil geht der Klassenkampf auf der Straße weiter. So stürmten gestern Hundertschaften der Polizei das Viertel Exarchia, drangen dort in viele Squats und Cafes ein und verprügelten, wer nicht schnell genug floh. Für heute ruft eine Gewerkschaft der Bankangestellten zum Streik auf.

Activists Occupy Cargill HQ, Shutting Down Business for Cutting Down Rainforest

United States, 06.05.2010 03:37

Wayzata--(press release from Rainforest Action Network)--In the wake of a damning report linking Cargill to the destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests, activists with Rainforest Action Network occupied the suburban Minneapolis executive offices of the nation’s largest private agribusiness company today. Playing a loud recording of chainsaws cutting down rainforests and holding signs reading “This is the sound of your supply chain,” and “Mr. Page: Rainforest Destruction Stops with You,” five activists locked themselves to the staircase of the Lake Office, blocking the entrance to the company’s executive offices for over two hours. All five activists were arrested.

The protest was accompanied by a dozen demonstrators at the front of Cargill’s Wayzata headquarters, greeting employees as they entered with a sign reading: “Rainforest Destruction Starts with Cargill.”

“Cargill is cutting down irreplaceable rainforests, driving critically endangered animals like the orangutan to the brink of extinction,” said Ashley Schaeffer of Rainforest Action Network, who was one of the arrested activists. “And then, they’re lying about it to their customers and to the American public. We found out what Cargill is doing and we want it stopped, now.”

DC, 06.05.2010 00:11

May 4, 1020: Twelve years after 69 percent of DCvoters passed a medical marijuana initiative, the City Council took its second vote on a bill that will regulate and enact Initiative 59, the Legalization of Marijuana for Medical Treatment Initiative. The Council rejected several amendments including explicit civil protections re employment, housing etc. An amendment for distribution centers to be operated on a nonprofit basis was also rejected. A final vote, is still expected before the bill is sent to the Mayor. A provision of the bill allows the Mayor discretion to increase the amount from 2 to 4 ounces. A provision that would allow patients to cultivate their own was rejected. MD April 2010: A bill to legalize medical marijuana did not make it through the last MD state legislature.

An anonymous employee of Marfin Bank released the following statement, with the request to disseminate it widely to counteract government propaganda.

Families torn apart by Fresh Del Monte ICE Raids

Citizens for Peace and Justice will screen the documentary "Frozen Dreams" on May 6 in Medford, Oregon.

The evening welcomes participants from UNETE a volunteer-led movement of farmworkers and immigrants in rural Southern Oregon. A light snack will be provided.

Frozen Dreams producer Emiliana Aguilar Reynosa will be traveling down from Portland for the film and she will be joined by three of the factory workers who were targeted in the 2007 immigration raid.

Following the film the Portland travelers will be joined by local activists for a panel discussion about the Del Monte raid, what has happened since and the ever growing need for comprehensive immigration reform. There will be ample opportunity for audience Q&A..

Proposed Leicester animal lab attracts protests

United Kingdom, 05.05.2010 17:39

Animal rights activists dropped banners and protested on the roof of the construction site of a new animal lab in Leicester on Monday. Banners were also hung on other University of Leicester buildings.

The National Anti-Vivisection Alliance (NAVA) claim that 101 animals already die in the university's labs each day and that the proposed £15m facility will add to this. The university claims that only rodents will be used at the new facility, but NAVA say they believe that dogs will be used as well.

NAVA was rapidly formed following the university's announcement that it was going to be building a new animal lab on Lancaster Place. Whilst the university claims that "vital" research will be carried out at the facility, NAVA say that the new lab "is squandering money away from potentially life-saving research which is accurate and does not involve abusing animals."

Merseyside May Day Festival A &quot;Wonderful Event&quot;

May Day was celebrated in fitting style over the weekend, as the festival organised by the Merseyside Mayday Collective attracted around five hundred to St Luke's ('bombed-out') church on Berry Street.

Mayday Roundup

United Kingdom, 05.05.2010 13:10

With the national elections less than a week away, Mayday celebrations to remember the Haymarket massacre of 1887 (and in support of worker's movements internationally) took place in many towns and cities across the UK. Despite that fact that the authorities had banned the planned march in Coventry, a spontaneous event took place marching from the Council House to Millenium Square, with a No Borders slogan reading 'Asylum is not a crime' at the head of the procession. In Nottingham, hundreds joined a procession which managed to overcome the City Council’s bureaucratic machinery. Several hundred people joined a march in Chesterfield and 400 braved the rain for Dublin's march which ended with a speech by Arthur Scargill. In Bradford people gathered on Infirmary Fields and in Manchester up to 200 joined a march, and enjoyed a firework display, and in Edinburgh about 100 joined a rally at West Princes Street Gardens.

In London, trade unionists and Communists marched from Clerkenwell Green to a rally in Trafalger Square. The four horsemen of the apopcalypse, last seen out at the G20 protests last year, were central to the 'Election meltdown' which saw effigies of party leaders dragged from their party HQs to Parliament Square for public execution, before an estimated crowd of 500. While some stayed to set up a Demockracy village in the square, many others were led to a tunnel by the samba band, for a Rave Against the Machine.
