Olympia Climate Activists Hang Banners Against Biomass

Portland, 27.10.2010 06:09

Olympia, WA - On October 25, activists from Olympia Rising Tide hung two banners at the Evergreen State College in opposition to a proposed biomass gasification facility. Olympia Rising Tide opposes biomass because it is a false solution to climate change and would lead to a massive resurgence of clear-cut logging in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere.

Olympia Rising Tide opposes biomass in solidarity with residents of Shelton, Port Townsend, Port Angelos, Forks, Aberdeen, Hoquiam, and Tacoma, who are also facing potential biomass facilities. We say no to biomass in Washington and no to biomass anywhere!

"Cutting down and burning our forests is not a solution to climate change," says Jo Lillian of Olympia Rising Tide. "Biomass is a greenwashed false solution that distracts from the real work that needs to occur to stop climate change and curb energy consumption, namely ending war and dismantling capitalism. Natural gas isn't a viable heating fuel either, but replacing one form of pollution and eco-destruction with another isn't progress."

Video: RNC 8 Case Concludes

United States, 27.10.2010 06:08

Today, October 25, was supposed to be the beginning of the trial of the RNC 8.  Originally facing terrorism charges under the first (and so far only) known use of the Minnesota PATRIOT Act, the eight anti-RNC organizers then faced four charges each before pressure on county attorney Susan Gaertner sent the terror enhancements packing.  In the end, Gaertner dropped charges against three of the eight completely, and in doing so found it easier to secure a final plea agreement on a lesser charge.

At the final hearing last Tuesday, supporters packed every seat available to them.  Afterwards--shown in this eight minute TCIMC/Chicago IMC video--the RNC 8 Defense Committee spoke to the media and supporters to wrap up the case, look back on the last two years, remember the reasons for resisting the 2008 RNC, and send a message to the Democratic National Committee, which is considering Minneapolis as the site of its 2012 spectacle.

субъективное мнение простого пользрвателя независимых ресурсов

Belarus, 27.10.2010 06:07

уважаемые друзья и товарищи! информационная война между индимедией, революционным действием и прочими независимыми интернет-ресурсами перешла все границы. На одном сайте пишется новость, потом на другом сайте появляется её опровержение, на третьем обвиняют оба сайта во вранье, а на четвёртом вообще противоположные сведения. Потом вообще проводиться цензура и удаляются посты! В итоге мы имеем недосказанность с одной стороны, противоречия с другой и, честно говоря, вся эта канитель очень напоминает обычные СМИ: не знаешь кому верить, кто больше врёт и что скрывает.

Мы все, я думаю, понимаем, что из-за ситуации с репрессиями движение трещит по швам. Но времени с их начала прошло достаточно, пора бы уже прекратить истерику и лихорадку, и собраться! Неужели всем, кто вчера стоял в одной шеренге, а сегодня гавкают друг на друга по разные стороны забора, не понятно, что власти именно этого и добиваются? Что цель репрессий - посеять хаос и смуту, рассеять движ, который только-только начал…

Mark Kennedy/Stone exposed as undercover cop

United Kingdom, 24.10.2010 10:09

Mark Kennedy AKA Mark Stone, who lived in Nottingham, has been exposed as having worked as an undercover police officer and this has been confirmed by Nottingham Indymedia and endorsed by other activist groups.

From 2000 to at least the end of 2009, Mark Kennedy was a well-known face in the local activist community and was actively involved in various environmental, animal rights, anti-capitalist and anti-fascist groups and campaigns.

Investigations into his identity revealed evidence that he has been a police officer and a face-to-face confession has confirmed this. The people involved in confronting Mark and getting his confession from him make clear that for security reasons no more information can be made public at this stage.

Students Confront Chancellor/Kick Off New Mascot Now! Weekend

United States, 24.10.2010 02:07

About 50 people met outside Swanlund Administration Building on Friday, Oct. 22, at noon. A group calling itself “Students for a United Illinois,” made up of 19 different local organizations, is holding a series of events this weekend to protest a pro-Chief rally this homecoming weekend and pressure the University of Illinois administration for a new mascot. They are holding a counter-demonstration outside of Assembly Hall on Saturday at 5 p.m. and an after-party at ARC.

Despite a letter sent to Students for Chief Illiniwek by University of Illinois lawyers asking the group to “cease and desist” from using the school’s symbol, the so-called “Next Dance” is still going on. They were holding the event at Assembly Hall “for the children,” they said. Early reports are that ticket sales have been low.

Photos of Obama protest on 10-20

Portland, 23.10.2010 20:09

Photos of the hardy 50+ who bravely stood their ground against over 100 right-wing Tea Party or re-packaged Americans For Prosperity protestors and over 5,000 Obama supporters. Also photos of the right wingers to show how utterly confused and misled they are, in spite of their real anger/grievances. Sometimes, you don't know whether to laugh or weep! What will it take for ordinary Americans to wake up and stop being conned/manipulated by the elites and their pundits.

Well, there were over 5,000 Obama supporters, 100 right wing Tea Party/Americans for Prosperity, and 50 of us at the protest two days ago when Obama came to town to stump for Kitzhaber. But the progressive activists from Veterans for Peace, PCASC, SUPER, ISO, immigrant rights groups and others bravely stood their ground in spite of their small numbers, and did their best to get their message out. No more wars and occupations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Pakistan, no more corporate giveaways and bailouts, Money for jobs and education, and no more voting for the two-party con men, Democrats and Republicans, soaking in corporate money and corruption. If we want real change, we've got to do it ourselves, not depend on politicians, leaders and cheerleaders. Look at what the French students and workers are doing right now to fight back against the cutbacks and attacks on them by the ruling elites. Strike, Blockade, Sabotage! Enough said!

G4S guards accused of killing deportee

United Kingdom, 23.10.2010 16:09

Three G4S security guards are accused of causing the death of Jimmy Mubenga, who died during his forcible deportation on a British Airways flight to Angola on 12th October. Eye witnesses told the Guardian how the 46-year-old man was being "heavily restrained by security guards and had complained of breathing problems before he collapsed." The three men have since been questioned by police and bailed until December pending further inquires.

In response to the government's deafening silence, on 15th October activists from South London plastered the area from Elephant and Castle to Peckham with posters holding witness statements and other info about Jimmy's murder.

Trial of police charged in 2006 shooting begins

United States, 22.10.2010 23:38

Four years after the shooting of Minneapolis resident Dominic Felder, the wrongful death trial of police officers Jason King and Lawrence Loonsfoot began this week in federal court in Minneapolis. Attorneys for the officers say that they acted correctly in the shooting of the 27-year-old African-American father of two.  Felder, who suffered from an unspecified mental illness, experienced a paranoid episode on the night of September 20, 2006.  His family called 911 for help, explaining to police that Felder was mentally ill.

Felder had threatened neighbors and had apparently broken one neighbor’s window--a frightening situation for everyone.  Felder’s parter and the mother of his two children, Tiana Wilson, repeatedly told police that the short, slight 27-year-old was delusional and not in control of himself.  Felder ran away from police but turned and walked back to them, lifting his shirt to show that he was unarmed.  Police allege that he grabbed for a police officer’s gun--then they shot him dead in front of his partner.

The trial coincides with the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality Friday. read more | | | 022 Advance Coverage: Indybay | Houston IMC



Building Bridges Radio: Black Farmers Speakout for Justice with Alice Walker

NYC, 22.10.2010 22:09

It’s been more than a decade since Black farmers filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, because of decades of discrimination. Thousands of farmers have not yet had their day in court or been allowed to file a claim even though the second phase of the suit (known as Pigford v Vilsack) was settled in February 2010. The reason for this is that Congress has not provided the $1.25 billion for farmers, who through no fault of their own, suffered discrimination from the same government that now denies them relief.

On the night of October 20th, four Santa Cruz Police Department officers ticketed a woman for spitting on Pacific Avenue. No warning was given, and she was issued a ticket for nothing more than spitting.
