NPA 2010: Taking Back Our Democracy and Reclaiming America!

United States, 26.05.2010 11:07

Source: WNYMedia.Net: On May 15th, we took 40 PUSH members and leaders down to Washington D.C. PUSH joined National People’s Action, a network of community organizations from around the country to hold lobbyists, politicians accountable to Real People. We let them know that enough is enough and that we need an economy that works for us!

As part of NPA, we helped serve notice to lobbyists by shutting down K Street for half an hour before marching through downtown DC! PUSH leaders Bob, Julie, Nico, Jalal, Mitchel, Chivon, and Barbara helped lead workshops on Green Jobs and Cities that Built America which demonstrated PUSH’s innovative and groundbreaking organizing and development work.

We met hundreds of amazing community leaders from Springfield, MAss. to Los Angeles, California and struck up some friendships that will last a long long time! And, we had a great time! Please check out our Flickr Site to check out pictures from the conference/actions. read more

Peralta Colleges Set to Restrict Protests and Fliering

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.05.2010 07:39

A proposal at the Peralta Colleges to establish "free speech zones" has evoked Orwellian visions of the campuses' futures. Yet others see the proposal as a necessary procedure to protect free speech. Speakers would be limited to the 150 foot x 150 foot main quad at Laney College, as well as the outdoor quads at COA and Merritt College, and the Student Lounge on the fifth floor at Berkeley City College. Fliers would be restricted to bulletin boards. All fliers would also require an English translation.



Identity of Student who Questioned Michelle Obama on Immigration is Revealed by Peruvian media

DC, 25.05.2010 20:11

Daisy Cuevas is the Indigenous student who declared publicly to Michelle Obama that her mother Natalia Julca is an undocumented immigrant. This happened last May 20th at the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Maryland, during a visit of Obama with Mexico's first lady Margarita Zavala. The future of the Cuevas-Julca family is now in hands of the Immigration and Custom Enforcement. I only hope that Daisy Cuevas will grow up next to both her parents, but I believe that ICE is just waiting for the right moment to search for Natalia Julca, who I've been told has moved out of her home in Maryland.

While this year's protest was smaller than in years past, tremendous energy and enthusiasm was demonstrated by all who took part.



Massentierhaltung und Gegenwind - Besetzung

Germany, 24.05.2010 22:39


Zu den vielen tausend bestehenden Massentierhaltungsanlagen sollen in den nächsten Monaten und Jahren in Deutschland noch hunderte dazukommen. Allein im Jahr 2009 wurden mindestens 120 neue Anlagen beantragt, beraten oder genehmigt. Bei diesen 120 handelt es sich ausschließlich um Großanlagen. Die Auswirkungen, dieser Anlagen sind schlimm und genauso vielfach wie gute Argumente gegen diese Anlagen: angefangen damit, dass Tiere keine Waren sind - oder nicht sein sollten - und schon gar nicht auf diese Weiße gequält werden sollten, über ökologische Argumente, da Massentierhaltung einen erheblichen Anteil am globalen Klimawandel verursacht (aber auch versäuerte Böden und Gewässern) bis hin zu den Negativauswirkungen vor Ort wie Gestank, Feinstaub, oder die Umstrukturierung der Landwirtschaft hin zu immer größeren Einheiten (ohne eine kleinbäuerliche Struktur idealisieren zu wollen, ohne dahinterstehenden Wirtschaftsstrukturen zu beachten). Auf alle diese Argumente will dieser Artikel näher eingehen.
Nun bekommen die Pläne der Tierquallobby Gegenwind: Nachdem schon vielerorts lokale Bürgerinitiativen gegen einzelne Anlagen kämpfen, haben nun AktivistInnen die Tierhaltung komplett ablehnen, allen geplanten Anlagen den Kampf angesagt und führten in Wietze bei Celle eine Bauplatzbesetzung durch.

Nottingham anti-arms trade activist convicted

United Kingdom, 24.05.2010 19:09

On May 20th at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, anti-arms-trade activist Kirk Jackson was found guilty of aggravated trespass for his part in a protest that shut down an arms company for a day. Jackson was given a twelve month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £350 court costs.

The charge arose from a February 18th protest at the Nottingham warehouse of international arms company Heckler & Koch. Before dawn, four activists locked themselves to the gates, preventing employees from entering, while Mr Jackson and another activist climbed onto the roof and displayed banners accusing the company of "arming repressive regimes".

Prison time for activist over green jobs banner. No kidding.

DC, 24.05.2010 04:11

Despite the Gulf disaster, no one from BP has been arrested and sent to jail. Despite safety violations at coal mines, no one from Massey Energy has been handcuffed. But today I write to inform you that one of America’s best global warming activists is probably facing several months of jail. He’s been convicted by a D.C. jury, and now he awaits sentencing on July 6th. Why? Because he peacefully dropped two banners on Capitol Hill that said: “GREEN JOBS NOW” and “GET TO WORK.” Video || Chesapeake Climate Action

URGENT UPDATE - Neoliberalism hates indigenous autonomy: some history of the situation in Oaxaca and a call for support

United States, 22.05.2010 18:07

Breaking:  San Juan Copala leader and wife found assassinated on Thursday, May 21. (Please click through--article describes more about San Juan Copala) Timoteo Alejandro Ramirez and his wife Cleriberta Castro were found dead in their home.  Mexican investigative journal Contralinea reports that the murders were done by members of MULT.   San Juan Copala's blog coverage is here

"The indigenous, autonomous community of San Juan Copala has been in a desparate situation for a while now," writes a Minneapolis activist working in Oaxaca.  "They have been surviving persistent paramilitary attacks and are close to death as the paramilitaries have cut them off from food and water supplies.  The solidarity caravan had intended to support them and try to bring attention to the attacks, but the government is so hell-bent on destroying this community that there was no hesitation to send paramilitaries to murder the participants. These were assassinations, not random shootings. This will continue to happen in communities like San Juan Copala that are resisting, there is knowledge that there are more attacks planned of higher severity. The need for international solidarity is so desparate as it is so important to bring attention and acknowledgement to what is going on down here."

She is describing the April 27 paramilitary assault on a humanitarian caravan in which Oaxacan CACTUS (Center for Community Assistance Working Together) director Bety Cariño and Finnish international observer Juri Jaakkola were murdered and others seriously injured. The caravan was bringing supplies to the blockaded autonomous Triqui community of San Juan Copala, along with teachers planning to reopen the schools shut down by right-wing paramilitaries. The state government has since claimed that Oaxacan organizers murdered their own people to discredit the state.



Vigil in Memoriam of Aiyana Jones

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.05.2010 17:39

On Sunday, May 23rd, community members will hold a vigil from 11 am to 1 pm in Oakland's Frank Ogawa Plaza to mourn the death of Aiyana Jones and all victims of police violence. 7-year-old Aiyana Jones was shot and killed by police on May 16th during a no-knock raid on her family's Detroit home. The incident was filmed by the crew of the reality TV cop show "The First 48," which had been following the Detroit Police Department, and the Jones family lawyer claims that the footage contradicts the police account of the incident.

Rally for Oregon Values at NW Natural Shareholder Meeting

Portland, 21.05.2010 22:39

Residents of the Pacific Northwest oppose NW Natural's Palomar pipeline in an effort to protect Oregon values: clean water, protected salmon runs, healthy forests, family farms and a clean energy future. NW Natural, in partnership with TransCanada Gas Transmission, is proposing the Palomar pipeline, a 217-mile natural gas pipeline that would connect to a Liquefied Natural Gas terminal on the Columbia River to the California-bound pre-existing GTN pipeline. With the LNG Palomar pipeline, NW Natural threatens hundreds of landowners in the Willamette Valley with eminent domain, while bringing heavy construction to cross 300 rivers and streams, and a 47-mile long clear-cut through Mt. Hood National Forest. A broad coalition of NW Natural ratepayers, shareholders, environmentalists, fishermen, foresters, and farmers are demanding that the company cancel the unnecessary and unethical pipeline plan.

What: Hundreds of Oregonians and Washingtonians protest at the 3rd Annual Rally to Stop the Palomar Pipeline at the NW Natural Shareholder Meeting.

When: May 27 1-4pm. Political speakers and media invited at 2:30pm.

Where: Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE MLK BLVD Portland, Or

‘There is a narrative that’s missing’ Laura Flanders tells grassroots radio gathering

United States, 21.05.2010 13:37

Television and radio host Laura Flanders ripped into what she called "the all-about the-money media" and encouraged 150 radio enthusiasts to work harder at storytelling in a keynote address to the Grassroots Radio Conference May 14.

Calling the Obama administration "a veneer of new backed up by the same old same old," Flanders took shots across the political spectrum garnering bursts of applause with her characteristic mix of humor and breaking news.

She stressed that there is a failure in the media to report on important news from the perspective of the public, and insisted that those stories can be told better at the grassroots level. "There is a narrative that's missing," Flanders insisted. "Rupert Murdoch bought the narrative when he paid $5 billion for Wall Street Journal... And we are being played and played and played and played." Full Report with Audio by Gavin Dahl



&quot;Niemand ist vergessen!&quot;

Germany, 21.05.2010 06:39

Am 25. Mai 2000 verübten vier Neonazis in Berlin, im Stadtteil Buch, einen brutalen Mord. Dieter Eich, der damals Sozialhilfe empfing, fiel den Neonazis zum Opfer, weil er aus ihrer Sicht ein „Asozialer“ war. Erst schlugen sie ihn in seiner Wohnung zusammen, später erstachen sie ihn, um eine eventuelle Zeugenaussage zu verhindern. Anlässlich des zehnten Todestages von Dieter Eich wird an den Mord erinnert. Am 23. Mai wird darum in Berlin-Buch unter dem Motto „Niemand ist vergessen“ eine Demonstration statAnspruch der Veranstaltungen, der Gedenkdemonstration am 23. Mai und der Gedenkkundgebung am 25.Mai , zu der überregional in Städten wie Rostock, Greifswald, Cottbus, Magdeburg, Potsdam mobilisiert wurde, ist eine umfassende Beschäftigung mit dem Mord und seinen Ursachen. Das Hauptaugenmerk liegt hierbei auf einer kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit der (deutschen) Leistungsgesellschaft, die Arbeit zum höchsten Gut erhebt und somit den Ausschluss von nicht arbeitenden Menschen permanent vorantreibt. Der andauernde Ruf nach mehr Zwang für Erwerbslose, schafft den Rückenwind für die Gewaltexzesse gegen so genannte „Sozialschmarotzer“. Die aktuelle Hartz IV-Debatte, die Behandlung so genannter „Asozialer“ im Nationalsozialismus und die Kritik an der Arbeitsgesellschaft im Allgemeinen sind Schwerpunkt der Veranstaltungen und des Gedenkens. Außerdem soll über die Hintergründe des Mordes sowie die aktuellen rechten Aktivitäten in Buch und Umgebung berichtet werden.

Chicago turns out in force for May Day protests

Chicago, 21.05.2010 05:09

The annual Chicago May Day protests and marches, an annual tradition going back to 1886 with its connections to workers' struggles and immigrant rights, returned resoundingly in 2010. Participants this year highlighted, galvanized by a number of factors including frustration over inaction by the Obama Administration (despite campaign promises of solidarity) and fury over the controversial SB 1070 law in Arizona mandating racial profiling in that state.
