Happy Anniversary (?) PATRIOT Act

Baltimore, 15.11.2004 15:03

On October 26, 2004 a special anniversary was observed, although there weren't any parties and probably no one baked a cake or sent a card. On that date the nation observed the third anniversary of the USA PATRIOT Act, signed by President George Bush on October 26, 2001.

JAMAL HOLIDAY

Portland, 15.11.2004 02:31

On August 30th, around 4pm the Kensington Welfare Rights Union held an unpermitted march against the RNC. The March was named "The March for Our Lives: End the War at Home". The idea was that this march was to address the occupation of communities abroad AND at HOME. The unpermitted march was promptly met by police provocation. All individuals snatched were released within 8 to 12 ours of their arrest with no more than misdemeanor charges.

These snatches were clear provocations by the police to break up the march, isolate those willing to defend those arbitrarly detained, and provoke violence from the crowd. The crowd however did not respond violently..... until around 8:30 pm, when plain clothes Detective William Sample, drove his moped directly into the march running over several protestors. The crowd responded and several people pulled detective Sample off his moped, and beat him unconcious. no one was charged with the assault against Sample... local media repeatedly played footage of a young black man in a white t-shirt and ball cap kicking detective Sample on the street. 12-18 hours after the incident, an undercover NYPD officer picked up New York local JAMAL HOLIDAY, who was charged with the assault on Sample. Last I heard, Jamal's bail had been raised from $50k to $250k. Jamal spent his twentieth birthday in jail, and as far as anybody knows, he is still in. He is the only one still in.

I am concered that our movement may have encouraged Jamal to be on the streets the day he was picked up and accused of this assault, yet there was no jail solidarity for Jamal. People had to fly home and go back to school or work including myself. It seems that the criticisms are true about our movement... descending upon communities and creating a false sense of empowerment, than skipping town only to leave open wounds for buzzard police forces to further oppress these peoples. We have just finished a film intended to raise money to this end , yet we don't know where to start. If anyone know's what is going on with Jamal, has information about a bail fund please post it widely.
thanks yo.

Cerremos las nucleares antes de que sea demasiado tarde!

Los amos del mundo se reparten el pastel de la energía nuclear hasta el punto de crear terrorismo de estado, como hemos visto en las protestas de Castor donde un pacifista fue asesinado y de tener a la justicia de su lado. Su principal arma es el dinero: favorecen la industria militar, subvencionan en detrimento de la energía solar, lavan su imagen con mentiras o la presentan como solución al cambio climático. No importa que este tipo de energía sea un suministro poco fiable donde el grave problema de los residuos esté todavía por resolver y que padezca frecuentes accidentes. Frente a esta amenaza e irresponsabilidad, la sociedad se encuentra con que el organismo responsable de la supervisión, CSN, carece de credibilidad y se defiende llevando a cabo campañas europeas para parar esta locura, donde más de un millón de europeos ya han firmado. En Catalunya, cerrar las centrales nucleares implicaría una revolución, como defienden much*s científic*s,salvando las Terres de l'Ebre y viviendo una forma realmente sostenible sin contaminación radioactiva.

Tanquem les nuclears abans no sigui massa tard!

Els amos del món es reparteixen el pastís de l'energia nuclear fins el punt de crear terrorisme d'Estat, com s'ha vist a les protestes de Castor on un pacifista fou assassinat i, fins i tot, han tingut la justícia de costat. La seva principal arma són els diners: afavoreixen la indústria militar, subvencionen en detriment de l'energia solar, renten la seva imatge amb mentides o la presenten com a solució al canvi climàtic. No importa que aquest tipus d'energia sigui un subministrament poc fiable on el greu problema dels residus estigui encara per resoldre i que pateixi freqüents accidents. Davant aquesta amenaça i irresponsabilitat, la societat es troba amb que l'organisme responsable de la supervisió, CSN, li manca credibilitat i es defensa portant a terme campanyes europees a favor d'aquesta bogeria , on més d'un milió d'europeus ja han firmat . A Catalunya, tancar les centrals nuclears implicaria una revolució, com defensen molts científics,salvant les Terres de l'Ebre i vivint d'una forma realment sostenible sense contaminació radioactiva.

Public hearing to investigate the War on Drugs

Boston, 14.11.2004 17:41

This Monday, November 15th, the Boston City Council will hold a hearing to investigate the effectiveness of our nation's War on Drugs, and the Boston component of it. The questions to be raised and addressed will include how much money has been spent nationally and in Massachusetts since 1973 and in the last ten years on the "war," this will include drug rehabilitation paid for by the state in this year's budget. The information gathered from these and other questions will be used to attempt to answer the ultimate question of this hearing, which is whether it is now time to admit that the War on Drugs has failed and that it is time to develop a new and more effective approach to the use of drugs in this country.

Laura and Zigor: Acquitted

Laura and Zigor were acquitted of the charge of having collaborated with the murder of a councillor of the local government of Viladecavalls (Catalonia), the sentence asked for by the prosecution has been dismissed. We should remember the people who took responsibility for this offence said that Zigor and Laura were not involved.

In spite of this absolution, they will remain in jail for 7 and 9 years, which was the sentence from the first trial. This sentencing comes from Audiència Nacional, the same institution which acquitted them of murder. Now Laura remains in the serious situation of solitary confinement. For these reasons so many forms of support are being developed: demonstrations, declarations and others by collectives, individuals...and, like so many other cases, this fight and constant solidarity is the best way to help them.

Protesters at &quot;Not My President&quot; demonstration block traffic downtown

Portland, 14.11.2004 09:12

I like many other PDXers have noticed the flyers around town pinned to the local coffee shops bulletin boards, in the store front of local bike shops and strewn about other various places of community affiliation all gearing up for Today's "NOT MY PRESIDENT rally taking place 12:00pm at Pioneer Courthouse Square NOV 13th. S0o what happened?

'una' writes: The reason you did not see people at 12:45 is because we all talked and made a plan at 12:30 in the square, to leave in small groups and meet up again afterwards at 1pm at 2nd and Burnside. We left some people to tell latecomers the plan, but apparently that did not work out. The strategy worked pretty well and the cops did not arrive at Burrnside until about 40 minutes later when we had been blocking half of the intersection for 10 min. Pictures will hopefully appear here soon. There were about 60 0f us. I think we all agree that more planning is needed, I got a fair amount of contact info from people, hopefully everyone else is networking too. We were talking about the day after Thanksgiving (Buy Nothing Day) as a possiblity for the next large action.

Biotech Industry Takeover of the USDA

Portland, 14.11.2004 09:06

A new report released today finds that regulatory policy at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been "hijacked" by the agribusiness industry, which has seen to it that many key policymaking positions at the agency are now held by individuals who previously worked for the industry.

The report, titled USDA INC., was commissioned by the Agribusiness Accountability Initiative (AAI), a network of family-farm and public- interest groups concerned about the growing power of the big agri-food corporations. It is being released today at a conference in Omaha sponsored by the Organization for Competitive Markets. The report can be found online.

"In its early days, USDA was known as the People's Department," said Fred Stokes of the Organization for Competitive Markets, which first proposed the paper. "Today, it is, in effect, the Agribusiness Industry's Department, since its policies on issues such as food safety and fair market competition have been shaped to serve the interests of the giant corporations that now dominate food production and distribution."

"It is not surprising that USDA is slavishly following the agenda of agribusiness when you consider who holds many of the top jobs at the Department," said Philip Mattera, director of the Corporate Research Project of Good Jobs First and author of the report. "The upper ranks of USDA are filled with industry veterans, while people formerly associated with family-farm, consumer or public-interest groups are just about nowhere to be found."

Black Box Voting's efforts to expose sElection 2004 vote fraud continue apace

Portland, 14.11.2004 08:58

BREAKING -- SATURDAY NOV 13 2004: Black Box Voting has launched a fraud audit into Florida. Three investigators (Bev Harris, Andy Stephenson, and Kathleen Wynne) are in Florida right now. We will initiate hand counts on selected counties that have not fully complied with our Nov. 2 Freedom of Information request by Monday (Diebold counties) or Tuesday (other counties).

BREAKING -- SATURDAY NOV 13 2004: We have reports that both David Cobb (Green Party) and Michael Badnarik (Libertarian Party) will be filing for official recounts in Ohio. Black Box Voting is also launching a fraud audit in Ohio. Gotta be replaced: Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell. Please invoke the following name change on Blackwell immediately, as he is 2004's Katherine Harris. He should now be referred to at all times as "Katherine Blackwell." Please retain this moniker for any future runs for governor. How to be your own media. Spread the word. Latest Katherine Blackwell outrage: Failure to properly account for provisional ballots, and refusing to allow citizens to see the pollbooks.

BREAKING -- SATURDAY NOV 13 2004: Black Box Voting is implementing fraud diagnostics on the state of New Mexico. Information we recently received is indicative of widespread vote manipulation. We are not going to publicize the specifics here.

Photos from War: Truth and Consequences

Urbana-Champaign, 14.11.2004 06:43

Photos from AWARE-sponsored Veteran's Day event My name is Robert Wahlfeldt. I was in the US Military during WWII from 1943-1946. I volunteered to go as a 17 year old who left high school early to avoid being drafted at 18. I joined the Navy and after boot camp was assigned to new construction destroyer duty. The USS Waldron. Our ship was sent to the South Pacific to join up with the Third and Fifth fast Carrier fleet as a picket ship since we had the new and latest radar equipment. We were placed at the perimeter of the task force as a lookout and to draw fire away from the rest of the fleet. We were expendable. As a member of AWARE, Anti-War Anti-Racism Effort this former Navy man says, “NO MORE WAR!” Let's help the next generation find ways to work with the world in more positive ways. I plan to offer my life as an example that you are never too old to learn. Support our military by bringing them home now!

US government: &quot;We seize - you can't complain&quot;

Michigan, 14.11.2004 01:11

(November 9) The U.S. government responded to the Electronic Frontier Foundation's (EFF) Motion to Unseal the court order that led to the seizure of two hard drives that hosted more than 20 Indymedia websites. The government claims that the order to Rackspace should remain secret because: (1) EFF and their Indymedia clients lacked "standing" (the legal right to initiate a claim) to contest the seizure, (2) the request came from a unnamed foreign government pursuant to a Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT), and therefore was not subject to the protections of the Bill of Rights; and (3) disclosure would endanger "an ongoing criminal terrorism investigation." EFF intends to oppose these arguments and will file a legal brief responding to the government's letter. It's then up to the court to decide whether the court order should be unsealed or not.

The government response also contains details suggesting that the order may have originated in Italy. While the government refuses to identify which government prompted the court order, the letter cites language from "Article 8" that corresponds to the Italy's MLAT and not to Switzerland's. (As reported earlier, Italy and Switzerland were the two prime suspects.)

Meanwhile, more than 10,000 individuals have signed the Indymedia solidarity statement and at least 17 of the downed websites are back up and running.
