Bruce Monroe: A Case Study in Gentrification

DC, 22.11.2010 20:24

In one of her first acts as D.C. Schools Chancellor, Michelle Rhee closed 23 public schools. Bruce Monroe Elementary School wasn’t one of them. The protests from the parents, staff and community prevented the high-achieving school from being a victim of Rhee’s school reform. At least for a while. By promising to rebuild the school within three years, Rhee successfully maneuvered the students of Bruce Monroe out of their building and into the Park View Elementary School, combining both schools. Bruce Monroe was then leveled. Today, there is a park where the school once stood. The park is likely to be replaced by luxury condos, not a school. Audio

Protest at Queens visit to the Nuclear Death Park in Rotherham

United Kingdom, 21.11.2010 22:31

On 18th October the Queen's visited Sheffield and the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe, was greeted by protestors.

The press release for the event didn't mention the arms industry related work that takes place there but simply stated that, "The Nuclear AMRC is a new collaboration between the University of Sheffield and the University of Manchester, with the backing of the Government and leading companies involved in building the new generation of civil nuclear power stations."

The day before, Stuart Parkinson, executive director of Scientists for Global Responsibility, speaking at the Sheffield CND AGM exposed the often used argument about job creation for facilities of this nature — only 3,000 are employed in the defence sector in the Yorkshire and Humberside region and the money invested could generate far more jobs in sustainable industries.

Activist Pleads Guilty in A.L.F. Sheepskin Factory Arson

Portland, 20.11.2010 01:52

In court Thursday, Walter Bond pleads guilty to burning down a Denver sheepskin dealer

In court November 18th, Walter Bond pleaded guilty to one count of "using fire or explosives to damage property involved in interstate commerce and of using force, violence or threats involving animal enterprises" under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. He faces five to 30 years in federal prison. His sentencing was set for February 11th. The guilty plea comes after Bond allegedly confessed to his brother that his was responsible for three A.L.F. arsons: Sheepskin Factory in Denver ($500,000 damages), Tandy Leather Factory in Salt Lake City ($30,000 damages), and the Tiburon Restaurant in Sandy ($10,000 damages). His brother had been working with the ATF, and the entire hotel room conversation was monitored. Bond was arrested soon after.

The Animal Liberation Front communique for the Sheepskin Factory fire stated the arson... was done in defense and retaliation for all the innocent animals that have died cruelly at the hands of human oppressors.

OREGON SOCIALIST CONFERENCE This Sunday

Portland, 20.11.2010 01:52

Capitalism isn't working. Socialism is the alternative—a world organized for human need, not profit, where resources are controlled by and for the vast majority, instead of by a tiny rich minority. Real change depends on struggle and action by our side. The Oregon Socialist Conference is one of the dozens of socialist conferences being held nationwide that are dedicated to arming a new generation of rebels, activists and organizers with arguments and ideas for a revolutionary socialist alternative, learning our history of rebellion and resistance, and discussing strategies for building organization and winning struggles for real change.

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 21st

*All sessions will be in Smith Memorial Student Union 294**

Kolejna wojna w Saharze Zachodniej?

Poland, 20.11.2010 01:29

10 października ponad 20 000 mieszkańców Sahary Zachodniej rozpoczęło wielki pokojowy protest domagając się prawa do pracy, zaprzestania dyskryminacji oraz do możliwości używania swoich zasobów naturalnych. Rząd marokański wysłał armię z rozkazem stłumienia protestu i zlikwidowania obozu. W wyniku tych działań 28 osób zginęło, 723 zostało rannych oraz 159 zaginęło, nie licząc cywilów zamkniętych w więzieniach oraz tych którzy trafili do szpitali albo zostali umieszczeni w obozach wojskowych (źródło).



Support the Dream Act Rally in Fresno

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.11.2010 00:56

Hundreds of students and community activists held a rally at CSU-Fresno in support of the Dream Act. The rally was prompted by media reports that Associated Student president at CSUF, Pedro Ramiriz, was undocumented. The news about Ramiriz's immigration status was first reported in the CSUF Daily Collegian and later on MSNBC, the BBC, and other national and international media outlets.



Marokkanische Armee massakriert Sahraui

Germany, 19.11.2010 20:56


Die marokkanische Regierung unterdrückt seit vielen Jahren unter Anwendung menschenverachtender Methoden die die Bevölkerung des nicht offiziell zu ihrem Territorium gehörenden Gebiets der Westsahara. Die dort lebenden Sahraui fordern schon lange ihre Unabhängigkeit, die Einstellung der Besatzung durch die marokkanische Armee und die Misshandlung der Bewohner und Ausbeutung der Rohstoffe.


Statt dem nachzukommen spitzt die marokkanische Regierung den Konflikt durch blutige Erstürmung eines Protestcamps von 20.000 Demonstranten zu - eine Lösung des Konflikts, ein Ende der Greueltaten und eine nachhaltige Befriedung der Region rückt dank fehlender Kritik und Schweigen der EU-Mitgliedsstaaten in weite Ferne.



SchNEWS 748: Complete Hissy Fit

United Kingdom, 19.11.2010 20:26

Following the student riots in central London last week (see SchNEWS 747), on Monday evening the Met Police told the hosts of the FIT WATCH website to close it down on the grounds that it was “being used to undertake criminal activities”. In a letter from the police, the company Justhost.com were warned that the website was being used in an attempt “to pervert the course of justice”, demanding that it be taken down for twelve months. Before this could happen several other sites published the offending text from Fitwatch, which was advice to the students facing arrest after smashing up the Tory HQ. Fitwatch is now back online.

Ateny: masowe protesty w rocznicę 17 listopada

Poland, 19.11.2010 20:01

Wczoraj wieczorem na ulice Aten wyszło kilkadziesiąt tysięcy osób by upamiętnić rocznice protestów studenckich z 1973 r., w czasie tłumienia których zginęło ponad 20 osób, a kilkaset zostało rannych. Demonstranci przeszli spod Politechniki pod ambasadę Stanów Zjednoczonych oskarżanych o wspieranie brutalnych rządów wojskowej junty z lat 1967-1974. Był to największy marsz związany z wydarzeniami na Politechnice Ateńskiej od ponad dekady i największy protest uliczny od 5 maja tego roku. Wg szacunków policji, zawsze zaniżającej liczbę uczestników społecznych wystąpień, wzięło w nim udział ponad 30 tys. osób; wg organizatorów – ok. 50-60 tys. Podobne marsze zorganizowano także w innych greckich miastach. Demonstranci, poza sloganami rocznicowymi, skandowali także hasła przeciw gospodarczej polityce rządu wymuszanej ustaleniami UE, MFW i Europejskiego Banku Centralnego. W czasie marszu doszło kilkakrotnie do starć z policją, która zaatakowała protestujących gazem łzawiącym. W nocy w dzielnicy Exarcheia trwały starcia uliczne.

Supreme Court favors Walmart in Medford, Oregon ruling

Rogue Valley, 19.11.2010 16:33

Thursday November 18, 2010 -- Oregon Supreme Court rules against Medford citizens in favor of Walmart

See Court Decision Here:  http://www.publications.ojd.state.or.us/S058025.htm

MCRD Reaction to today's Oregon Supreme Court Decision follows...

Today is a sad day for Medford Citzens for Responsible Development and its many supporters. We are extremely disappointed by the Supreme Court decision which affirmed an earlier Appellate Court opinion. The court ruled that a local jurisdiction should be given deference when some of the local rules are contradictory. In this particular case, there were conflicting rules about whether the city should require a comprehensive traffic study for new commercial development, and when.

While there were conflicting rules on the issue, our group was frustrated that our city leaders would decide to err on the side of the developer, and approve a project that is anticipated to cost millions for street improvements to handle the increased traffic. At any time, Walmart could have agreed to conduct a traffic study and pay for the associated costs, or the city could have chosen to follow the more restrictive rules.

rest of reaction follows.....

Call For Artists

Portland, 18.11.2010 00:45

CRIMINALES TODOS is a travelling community art exhibit aiming to inspire an ongoing dialogue and examination of the social, political and cultural issues related to the criminalization of communities of color. From post-Civil War vagrancy laws targeting newly freed African Americans in the South, to police rounding up Japanese Americans and sending them to internment camps during WWII, to SB1070 targeting Latinos in Arizona; the history of police targeting communities of color has deep roots in American history.
CALL FOR ARTISTS

Criminales Todos
A Community Art Exhibit
December 10th -17th, 2010
Opening Reception: Dec. 10, 2010
Launch Pad Gallery: 534 SE Oak Street, Portland, OR 97214
Submissions Deadline: Dec. 1, 2010


In times of increased police surveillance, tightened border control and the implementation of anti-immigrant and racist laws across the country, we encourage artists to engage in a conversation about the devastating repercussions of policing and the militarization in our local communities.

Artists of all backgrounds are invited. Our aim is to create a space for conversation against the long standing practices of repression, and the impact of unjust and discriminatory practices. The exhibit is a platform from which to explore the marginalization of communities of color, and how to build solidarity and resistance to discrimination and oppression. Please join us.

Related topics include, but are not limited to:
- Effects of local enforcement programs in our local communities.
- Personal and/or collective experiences with detention and deportation systems.
- Racial profiling and institutionalized racism.
- Intersection of criminalization of resident communities of color and newly arrived immigrants.
- Anti-immigrant sentiment.
- Historical and contemporary forms of popular resistance to human rights abuses.

Only a few days left to comment on proposed coal terminals on the Columbia River!

Portland, 17.11.2010 16:45

Comment on Millenium Bulk Logistcs' shoreline permit application by Friday, November 19th to stop coal export terminals on the Columbia River.

Olympia Rising Tide recently learned that Millenium Bulk Logistics, owned by Ambre Energy, an Australian energy company, wants to build coal terminals in Longview, Washington on the Columbia River to export Powder River Basin coal to China! We know that coal is one of the leading causes of climate change, and sending coal to China is not only not a step in the right direction for a livable future, but it is leaps and bounds in the wrong direction.

Ambre Energy is currently trying to secure the shoreline permit to make upgrades to the existing terminal so they can use it for coal export. Today the Cowlitz County board's staff recommended to the County Board that they approve the shoreline permit because the project is of "no environmental consequence", therefore an Environmental Impact Statement will not be required. But we know that a project to further enable this planet's coal addiction is of extreme environmental consequence, and a detailed, in-depth Environmental Impact Statement must be completed.

Please contact Vickie Musgrove, Clerk of the Board for Cowlitz County, and tell her that you oppose the shoreline permit for Millenium Bulk Logistics' terminal upgrades.

Here's Columbia Riverkeeper's fact sheet on the Longview coal export terminal: link to www.columbiariverkeeper.org).pdf
