BP &amp; the Oil Spill Catastrophe: How Capitalism is Wrecking the Planet July 29th 7:30pm - PSU

Portland, 29.07.2010 20:39

July 29 - Portland State University, Smith Memorial Student Union Room 228 - 7pm


Over two months have passed and there is yet to be any relief from the steady gush of oil destroying wildlife, coastline, jobs, and lives in the Gulf of Mexico. Following the onslaught of oil, BP execs have proven time and again that their main priority is restoring their image-and their profits-rather than the fragile environment they laid waste. Meanwhile, government officials have done little to oversee BP's "clean up" efforts or reform the corrupt Mineral Management Services. On top of this, offshore drilling continues with business as usual and no new regulations to prevent another blow out like the Deepwater Horizon from happening again. The crisis has put a spotlight on the way that capitalism sacrifices all other concerns for the sake of the bottom line, potentially producing even greater problems such as catastrophic climate change. Come to a presentation and discussion on the socialist alternative to unconstrained ecological devastation.



Chicago’s Puerto Rican Community Celebrates Release of Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Carlos Alberto Torres

Chicago, 29.07.2010 20:09

From the newswire: "Puerto Rican political prisoner Carlos Alberto Torres, who was imprisoned three decades ago for his work in support of Puerto Rican independence, was paroled from federal prison in Pekin, Illinois on Monday, July 26, and returned briefly to Chicago to a hero's welcome before his planned move to permanently relocate to Puerto Rico. Spending 30 years behind bars for supporting Puerto Rican independence, he is the longest serving political prisoner in the history of Puerto Rico.

"Chicago’s Puerto Rican residents held a community celebration with Carlos to mark his return on Monday from 4-6PM at La Casita de Don Pedro Community Garden, 2625 W. Division St., Chicago. Hundreds of community residents and supporters attended the event. 'We are thrilled that he’s finally free,' said his sister Norma Torres. 'So many people of conscience have fought for years to win Carlos’ freedom – and that of all the Puerto Rican political prisoners. Now we need to bring Oscar home.'" Read more



Judge Enjoins Key Parts of SB1070; Some Parts That Criminalize Immigrant Still in Effect. Protests to go on as planned.

LA, 29.07.2010 15:39

From Arizona Indymedia - On July 28th at about 10:00 a.m. Federal judge Susan Bolton issued a preliminary injunction against four provisions included in Arizona's anti-immigrant law, SB1070. These provisions include the mandate that law enforcement officers solicit the immigration status of anyone they encounter; the portion that makes failure to carry immigration documents a state crime; the portion that makes it a state crime for undocumented immigrants to perform work in Arizona; and the portion allowing for warrantless arrest of anybody who is suspected of having committed a "deportable offense". Judge Bolton's injunction is only temporary, which means that each of these provisions can still go into effect if the judge decides, after fully hearing the case, that they are acceptable.

Here in Los Angeles a large caravan of hundreds left for Arizona early this morning.

Crown Court rules against Surveillance of Meeting

United Kingdom, 29.07.2010 02:39

The Crown Court cleared three activists of the charges of "obstructing the police" on Friday.

The Inner London Crown Court ruled that police surveillance of a public political meeting had not been proved to be lawful and that the police had failed to provide any evidence that they were pursuing a "legitimate aim". The three activists were arrested at a meeting called by London NoBorders in June 2008 when they protested against the surveillance of the meeting by "Forward Intelligence Team."

Campaign launched to close down German dolphinarium

United Kingdom, 28.07.2010 11:39

"Not only do we have to fight criminal operations and cruelty to animals on the high seas but also take responsibility and direct action to help those who are imprisoned in concrete pools, doomed to entertain us."

Palawas, Nando, Kite and Rocko. Those are the given names to four bottlenose dolphins who are currently performing at the dolphinarium in Münster, Germany. Built in 1974 as part of the local zoo, the dolphinarium remains one of the last three of its kind in Germany. From the original nine facilities keeping dolphins in captivity, only Nürnberg, Duisburg and Münster are still blocking and ignoring concerns of animal welfare groups, conservationists, politicians and the public.

National Week of Actions

LA, 28.07.2010 07:09

Are you going to Arizona? Are you staying in L.A.? Dozens of actions are happening this week to protest the implementation of AZ SB1070, the state law that, according to opponents, will violate civil rights and is unconstitutional. The law is presently being challenged by the Federal government, but whether an injunction against the law is passed or not, thousands of people from across the country will converge on Phoenix, AZ, to join in the massive protests already taking place at the state capital.

See: Alto Arizona, Southern California Immigration Coalition, Resistance to SB 1070: No Borders, No Papers, No State,

On the 29th, read news and post information to Arizona Indymedia, and promote it on the various social networking sites.

Peace Conference Passes Resolution to Support Bradley Manning and Wikileaks

DC, 26.07.2010 22:10

RESOLUTION to National Peace Conference July 2010 We SUPPORT BRADLEY MANNING & WikiLeaks for Leaking the Story of US War Crimes in Iraq Bradley Manning, a member of the U.S. Army, is held in a US military prison in Kuwait . The military has charged him with two violations for releasing classified information (the Wikileaks "Collateral Murder" video) which showed the U.S. Army killing 12 Iraqi civilians in July 2007; Manning faces 54 years in prison and is being held in isolation from the outside world, and it is not clear if he has contact with his civilian attorneys working to defend him. If the allegations are true, we believe that Bradley Manning is a hero for bringing to light the realities of the crimes being committed in the U.S. occupation. We call for his immediate release and for his attorneys to be allowed to talk to him. The soldiers and officers, not to mention the commanders responsible for the July 2007 killing of civilians face no investigation, much less punishment of any kind.

Сильнейшая жара этого лета не только создаёт дискомфорт для простого населения Беларуси, но и не проходит бесследно для чиновничьих мозгов. Вот только последствия этого, к сожалению, затрагивают всех, так как свои безумные планы они с особым усердием и пеной у рта пытаются воплотить в жизнь. Невзирая на их полную абсурдность, конечно.

На этот раз взор чиновников упал на территории, загрязнённые радиацией в результате аварии на Чернобыльской АЭС. Если быть точными, внимание на них они обратили уже давно, ещё во время планирования государственной программы по преодолению последствий катастрофы на Чернобыльской АЭС на 2006-2010 годы. Но, как и следовало ожидать: сроки программы подходят к концу, толком сделано ничего не было, деньги закончились, а начальство ждёт результатов. Однако беларуских чиновников это совсем не смутило, они, наподобие Мюнхгаузена, верят в то, что безвыходных ситуаций не бывает, тем более подобные проблемы для них не впервой и опыт уже есть.

México Sangra: Los Medios Libres Contra la Tiranía Invisible

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.07.2010 18:38

Ké Huelga Radio escribe: México sangra. En paralelo a la supuesta "guerra contra el narco" vemos teñirse de verde olivo el territorio del país. La militarización es parte de la guerra global impulsada por el gobierno de Estados Unidos tras el 11 de septiembre, creando a sus nuevos enemigos: el terrorismo y el narcotráfico. En plena sintonía con sus amos del norte, el gobierno mexicano ha lanzado su propia guerra, creando un estado policiaco y criminalizando la protesta social.



Mexico Bleeds: Free Media Against the Invisible Tyranny

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.07.2010 18:09

Ké Huelga Radio writes: Mexico is bleeding. Along with the so-called "war against drug-dealers" we see the whole Mexican territory turn olive green. The militarization is part of the global war driven by the United States, which began with the 9-11 events and created new enemies: terrorism and drug trafficking. Attuned with the Lords of the north, the Mexican government has launched its own war creating a police-ruled state and criminalizing social protest.

The Dreamers

DC, 26.07.2010 01:10

Normally, I begin an interview by asking, "Your name?" But last Wednesday, I couldn't lead off with this question. Many individuals, including the young woman I interviewed, live and work in the U.S., but do not possess the 'proper' documents. For those who fall into this category, a name can be used as a weapon against them. The Dream Act would change this for many. As the Washington Post noted, the Dream Act "would give unauthorized young immigrants a path to legal residency if they contribute to the country by serving in the military or getting a college education."
