National Fuel Buffalo Protest

United States, 16.12.2010 09:17

Dozens of environmentalist and concerned citizens braved temperatures in the teens [last] Thursday afternoon to demonstrate against the controversial drilling technology known as Hydraulic fracturing. Lafayette square was the scene and national Fuel Gas Company was the focus of attention at 4:00 o’clock in the afternoon as downtown commuters began heading home.

There is much at stake: thousands of jobs, and millions of dollars in desperately needed revenue for cash-strapped families and governments across the Empire State. Balanced against this is a price that may be too high to pay. The destruction of thousands of acres of forest and the pollution of pristine water sources and aquifers could be the result. The source of this bonanza is trillions of cubic feet of natural gas, trapped a mile below the surface inside the massive Marcellus Shale. This middle-Devonian formation covers most of Pennsylvania and western New York.

The problem is how to get the gas to the market. Hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, is at the center of what is becoming the most volatile issue in years. And the issue is far from being resolved. The New York State legislature has voted for a moratorium on new drilling until May of 2011. As we go to press, Governor Patterson has yet to sign the bill.

The group of protesters is undeterred by the bitter cold and cutting wind. They brandish signs and chant in unison, “no fracking way, no fracking way.” The issue to them is quite simple. Corporate America is once again going to ignore the needs of ordinary people in a relentless pursuit of profit. National Fuel is by far the major player, holding at least 715,000 acres and thousands of drilling rigs. The company stands to gain millions in new profits with no thought to potential corporate environmental collateral damage.read more by Grady Hawkins

Guilty verdict in Ratcliffe trial

United Kingdom, 15.12.2010 21:06

After a 3 week trial and 3 days of deliberation for the jury, 20 climate activists were found guilty of conspiring to commit aggravated trespass today. The defendants were amongst 114 activists arrested at a Nottingham school in April 2009, on the verge of taking action to shut down the Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station.

Over the course of the trial the jury heard evidence from a raft of experts including James Hansen, one of the world's leading climate scientists. MPs also testified on the inadequacy of conventional political channels to prevent climate change. The 20 are clear that "Taking action on climate change is not an act of moral righteousness, but of self-defence."

Baltimore Indymedia shutting down

Baltimore, 15.12.2010 21:02

From July, 2001 to February, 2009, Baltimore Independent Media Center published reports and analysis on grassroots activism in Baltimore. Baltimore IMC also covered national demonstrations in Miami, New York and Washington DC.

In 2006, members of Baltimore IMC joined with members of the campbaltimore artist collective to found the Indypendent Reader. The IndyReader was published as a print quarterly with a similar mission as IMC. Much energy shifted from Baltimore IMC to the IndyReader in the following years.

Recently, both Baltimore IMC and the IndyReader have experienced low-points in activity. While Baltimore IMC has died as a collective, IndyReader kept publishing and now is 're-founding' with new collective energy.

Baltimore IMC will now be shut down to publishing. However, we are pleased to announced that the website of the Indypendent Reader is being re-developed. Readers who have hoped to see IMC back to publishing should be happy to learn that they can turn to the IndyReader online.

Video: What Every Portland Resident Needs To Know About Our Water System

Portland, 15.12.2010 21:01

Public Access program featuring a power point presentation by Friends of Safe Drinking Water concerning the plans by City authorities to cover Portland reservoirs and add toxic chemicals.

Scott Fernandez of Friends of Safe Drinking Water, appearing on the Portland Public Access program, "A Growing Concern." Some of the points covered by the discussion:

? Cryptosporidium, the supposed reason for this massive rebuilding of our water system, is a red herring. A catastrophic sewage event in Milwaukee, Wisc., the rationale for requiring Cryptosporidium treatment?was caused by raw sewage in the drinking water, not Cryptosporidium.

What I took away from this extremely educational Power Point presentation is that this effort to cover the reservoirs is a business decision, not a health or community service decision. The situation needs massive intervention by the public, contacting the City Commissioners, the Mayor and the Congressional delegation, particularly David Wu.

'Smart' Meter Protests Spread as PG&amp;E Officials Implicated in Spy Scandal

Santa Cruz, CA, 15.12.2010 20:15

On December 14th, hundreds of PG&E customers, outraged about the health damage caused by wireless 'smart' meters, ramped up protests by testifying at county government meetings and shutting down payment centers in both Santa Cruz and Marin Counties to demand an immediate halt to the program. Protesters are also angry about PG&E's attempts to cover up the growing health scandal and recently revealed espionage carried out against their customers concerned with increasing reports of nausea, headaches, and bouts of dizziness from the meters. The protesters, backed by 22 local governments and an increasing number of scientists and medical professionals, are demanding that PG&E halt any further installation of smart meters.

Tacoma Police Station Attacked

Portland, 15.12.2010 19:37

On December 14th in Tacoma, all of the windows were smashed out of the downtown police substation. This was done for all of the people currently locked up in the Pierce County Jail seven blocks up the street. We are supposed to be sad when the police lose and officer. But when the police kill the people around us we are supposed to be silent. We send our warmest greetings to the kids of London, Rome, and the inmates of Georgia prisons. Good luck on the 15th to the people of Athens.

Grecja: strajk generalny

Poland, 15.12.2010 15:06

Główne greckie centrale związkowe zwołały na dziś strajk generalny w ramach protestu przeciw rządowemu pakietowi antykryzysowemu, oznaczającemu dla milionów Greków zamrożenie lub obniżki płac, podwyższenie podatków, zwolnienia i radykalne obcięcie wydatków na cele publiczne (edukację, opiekę zdrowotną itp.). W przeprowadzonym dziś rano głosowaniu parlament zaaprobował oszczędnościowe reformy, co było warunkiem udzielenia Grecji przez UE i MFW pomocy w wysokości 150 miliarda euro. Na czas strajku we wszystkich większych greckich miastach zwołano też marsze protestacyjne. W trakcie demonstracji w Atenach, w której bierze udział kilkadziesiąt tysięcy osób, wybuchły poważne zamieszki; demonstranci zaatakowali workami z farbą, kamieniami i butelkami z benzyną rządowe budynki i 2 luksusowe hotele przy placu Syntagma. Na ulicach trwa regularna bitwa z policją, wszędzie unoszą się chmury gazu łzawiącego, płonie m.in. budynek poczty w pobliżu parlamentu oraz luksusowe samochody na trasie demonstracji. Demonstrantom udalo się też spalić w okolicach Parlamentu policyjny autobus.

Обзор акций солидарности с белорусскими анархистами. 10-13 декабря 2010 г.

Belarus, 15.12.2010 13:12

10-13 декабря этого года были объявлены днями акций солидарности с преследуемыми белорусскими анархистами и социальными активистами. В эти дни протесты прошли в 16 городах шести стран. В ближайшие дни состоятся встречи, дискуссии и сбор помощи еще в трех городах Польши и Германии. В данный момент в белорусских тюрьмах находится четыре человека, которые обвиняются в участии в различных политических акциях, имевших место в стране с сентября 2009 года по сентябрь 2010 года. Все эти акции объявлены правоохранительными органами «хулиганством», которое должно преследоваться в рамках уголовного законодательства. Таким образом, выражение политической позиции по-прежнему приравнивается в Беларуси к преступлению.

Włochy: brutalne zamieszki po wygranej Berlusconiego

Poland, 15.12.2010 10:15

Po wczorajszym głosowaniem nad wotum nieufności dla Silvia Berlusconiego, które zakończyło się korzystnie dla obecnego premiera (wygrał minimalną większością głosów: 314 do 311, przy nieobecności dwóch posłow), w Rzymie wybuchły najostrzejsze od wielu lat zamieszki, w których rannych zostały dziesiątki osób, a ponad 40 aresztowano. Do przepychanek i wyzwisk między posłami przeciwnych frakcji doszło także w czasie samego głosowania, gdy jedna z posłanek, która miała poprzeć opozycję, nieoczekiwanie zmieniła zdanie. Walki przeciwników obecnych władz z policją w kilku częściach historycznego centrum Rzymu, które zasnute było dymem z płonących samochodów i rzucanych przez demonstrantów bomb dymnych, trwały przez wiele godzin.

Anti-Racists Ask: “Know these Nazis? Give Us Information.”

Portland, 14.12.2010 20:58

"Wanted" Posters Distributed in Oregon City and Milwaukie

Clackamas County, Oregon - On the night of Saturday, December 11, militant anti-racists distributed over a hundred "Wanted" posters in Oregon City and downtown Milwaukie. The posters, which were stapled and pasted in both locations, ask for community members to provide information on individuals associated with Volksfront International, a major white supremacist organization.

Volksfront members live and socialize in the areas where the posters were distributed. The neo-Nazis pictured in the "Wanted" poster are: Nicholas and Leah Cheshire, Richard and Crystal Arden, as well as key Volksfront leader Justin Ryan Martin. The poster is available at:

 http://media.portland.indymedia.org/media/2010/12/404540.pdf

The following day, December 12, anti-fascists released another appeal for information, leaking 120 photos of Volksfront members and their gatherings to the activist website Portland Indymedia, and asking information on those pictured. The photo albums are available online at:
 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2010/12/404413.shtml

Volksfront International is a neo-Nazi organization that was founded in 1994 in the Oregon prison system. It has gone on to establish a presence in several North American locations as well as in Europe and Australia, although the greater Portland area remains its hotbed. Volksfront has a long history of violence--including murder--and anti-fascists felt it imperative to warn community members of the white power organizers in their midst. On the day of the anti-racist poster distribution, December 11, several Volksfront members had traveled to Whidbey Island, Washington, to commemorate Robert Jay Matthews, a white supremacist of the Silent Brotherhood / "The Order" terrorist group who died in a confrontation with federal authorities there in 1984. Volksfront is also part of the greater white supremacist movement that Rose City Antifascists believe to be responsible for the shooting of anti-racist Luke Querner in downtown Portland on March 27 of this year.

The poster distribution was carried out by members and friends of Rose City Antifa. "We hope that people will remember the faces on the posters, and stay safe" says Helen of Antifa, "The neo-Nazis of Volksfront thrive in secrecy; we encourage the public to be aware, and to contact us when these bigots raise their heads."



Protests in Santa Cruz to Support Bradley Manning and WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange

Santa Cruz, CA, 14.12.2010 20:58

Private First Class Bradley Manning is facing up to 60 years in prison for allegedly leaking information through WikiLeaks that expose U.S. war crimes. Among these is helicopter gunship video that shows U.S. troops nonchalantly mowing down two journalists, first aid respondents, and children with machine gun fire. The perpetrators of these crimes are not being punished, even with video proof of the cold blooded murders. Instead, the military brass are prosecuting Bradley Manning.

UK Indymedia to Fork on 1st May 2011

United Kingdom, 14.12.2010 15:11

At a UK Indymedia Network meeting held in Bradford on 11th December 2010 it was agreed that the UK Indymedia project would fork into two separate projects on or before 1st May 2011 (fork in the sense of a Free Software fork). Many issues and disagreements over the years preceded this decision and it is now hoped that all involved will be able to continue to work on activists media projects without ongoing conflicts. One collective will take over the running of the www.indymedia.org.uk website, with a new name that won't include "UK" and on a new indymedia.org sub-domain, which has yet to be agreed. The other group will continue developing an aggregator site they are working on. The indymedia.org.uk domain will be used to host an archive of the web site which will no longer be updated.

This won't have much direct effect on Sheffield Indymedia, the web site will continue to run as part of the renamed UK Indymedia website. Sheffield Indymedia will remain on sheffield.indymedia.org.uk (and hopefully soon also be available on sheffield.indymedia.org) and it is our hope that the Sheffield Indymedia newswire will be syndicated to the aggregator site.

Colton Immigrant Community Meets PD Chief, Demands Justice

LA, 14.12.2010 01:42

Saturday, December 11, 2010

COLTON, California - In a large public gathering the cafeteria of Alice Birney Elementary School, well over one hundred community members from Colton, a city whose residents include many low-income immigrants, met with their police chief to expose him to the injustices his officers have been committing and to petition redress of their grievances. While distrust between the community and police is historic, things have gotten worse since the city created its own towyard a few years back and began collecting impound fees on cars, mostly taken from immigrants ineligible for licenses. In order to impound more automobiles to bail the city out of its financial troubles, officers have resorted to profiling anyone who "looks undocumented," making pretextual stops in order to impound vehicles.

FBI Delivers Subpoenas to More Activists in Chicago, Pushback Continues

Chicago, 13.12.2010 00:26

On Friday, December 3rd, the FBI delivered at least three subpoenas to Chicago activists to appear before a grand jury, as confirmed by National Lawyers Guild attorney Jim Fennerty. By Monday, December 6th, activists rallied in defense of those subpoenaed. Read statement by one of those subpoenaed.

The December delivery comes in the wake of an September sweep targeting fourteen activists in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling in February. But activists and allies have resisted what many have decried as harrasment of community activists engaged in no wrongful activity.

Melissa Sydor- Kaufman of SWAA explains the purpose of the Truth Commission: "The Truth Commission is a model where we're hopeing to expose the truth about what's happening to people in our community and our society. The Poor and people who are struggling are made to be invisible. This evening is about giving folks voice, empowering folks, and hearing the truth."



Anarchists set off smoke bomb in cop bar--Portland, OR

Portland, 12.12.2010 18:38

In the predawn hours of December, 6th 2010, to mark the two year anniversary of the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos in Exarchia, a smoke bomb was ignited inside the Portland Metro Police Club (618 SE Alder st.)--a private bar, ballrooom, and athletic facility operated by the Portland Police Association. We did this to articulate our utter contempt towards the police, and our hatred of the state and capitalism in general.

This act of sabotage was a gesture of revolutionary solidarity with the imprisoned anarchists of the Conspiracy Cells of Fire in Greece, The Asheville 11, Christos Stratigopolous, the recently released Alfredo Bonanno and all those resisting state repression everywhere.

Video: Toga Africa Solidarity - A protest in Washington DC on 3.25.10

Portland, 12.12.2010 18:38

I filmed this interview while in DC last March. I intended to post this much sooner to help spread their message and voice for justice.
It was an interview I did with a group standing on the park across from the White House.

These were folks, who traveled from all over the US in representing Toga Africa, and they were trying to get a meeting with Obama regarding the Human rights violations and injustice that is going on and has been for too long. I just happened to be walking by when I noticed they had signs a message to say. I asked a few sign holders what it was about and thus is this recording from that day:
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVMsg1P3qm8

What I understand and have read is that the country has been oppressed and violently ruled by one particular family / military for around 43 years.

There is not much information on Toga when I just searched the words "Toga Africa"... But when I added the search words "human rights violations" along with "Toga Afric" lots of links popped up.

Trying to share what Im learning - please learn and share what you know about Toga' struggle for justice with others.

In Solidarity

American Premiere of THE IDIOT CYCLE in Corvallis, Oregon

Portland, 12.12.2010 18:38

For the first time the award winning documentary The Idiot Cycle is being screened in America - December 7th, 2010 - at Dark Cinemas in Corvallis, Oregon and at the same time at California States University in Sacramento.

The film has been at the center of much discussion, since it was denied E&O insurance because of "subject matter" (which means it probably will not be shown on television in the USA or Canada) and recently the university of Montpeiller's screening of the film was almost cancelled by the school director when he heard the school's sponsor BASF was cited in the film. It is a serious film about cancer and how chemical companies not only profit from making the chemicals that cause cancer, but also profit from selling the drugs that treat cancer. These same companies are now developing genetically modified crops, which have never been tested for long term health impacts like cancer.

The film focuses on six major companies: Dow Chemical, Bayer, BASF, Monsanto, Dupont, and Astrazeneca. It was filmed in eight countries, including the U.S. The trailer can be seen here: www.theidiotcycle.com
