А без президентов СЛАБО?!

Belarus, 21.12.2010 12:03

Таков один из лозунгов, под которыми выступили анархисты 19 декабря 2010 года в ходе митинга на Октябрьской площади Минска. Их присутствие сопровождалось игрой барабанщиков из Самба-бэнд и раздачей листовок с саркастическим заголовком “Предвыборная программа анархистов”, где подробно объяснялась позиция анархистов насчет выборов, власти вообще и устройства общества. Текст листовки можно увидеть здесь. Активисты держали баннеры “Альтернатива есть!” и “Свободу политзаключенным Николаю Дедку, Игорю Олиневичу, Александру Францкевичу”, а также плакаты “Нашто нам новыя паны?”, “Трудящийся помни: что не стибрит бюрократ, спионерит демократ!”, “Зачем нам президенты? Мы можем сами!”

Когда основная часть пришедших на площадь двинулась в сторону Дома правительства, колонна анархистов прошлась с ними по проспекту Независимости, заряжая различные лозунги, и по прибытию на место разошлась. Ведь основная цель по донесению своей позиции…

DREAM Act Dies in Senate on International Migrants' Day; Communities Respond

LA, 21.12.2010 07:29

After a ten-year struggle for the rights of undocumented youth to regularize their status through higher education or military service, the DREAM Act was again shot down by anti-immigrant senators on December 18, International Migrants' Day. DREAM has gone through several changes since it was first introduced, each version weaker and more unpalatable than the last. Nonetheless, the youth-led activism surrounding the DREAM Act has been incomparable. An entire generation has learned the arts of activism, from lobbying and letter-writing to hunger strikes and civil disobedience, including a DREAM-focused shut-down of Wilshire Boulevard earlier this year. In Southern California, the immigrant rights community reacted to the tragic news of DREAM's non-passage.

Eric McDavid Update

Portland, 21.12.2010 07:28

Dear friends, On Wednesday, December 8, the 9th circuit court of appeals denied Eric's request for a rehearing en banc. This was, in effect, Eric's last available option in the appeals process (other than appealing to the extremely conservative supreme court). Hope has proven to be a fleeting, evasive creature throughout this whole process. Many of us knew better than to fall for its seductive overtures. But hearts are so often blind to what our minds know to be truth - even when we knew what the outcome would be, our hearts had trouble letting go. We wanted Eric out here, with us. Free to wander in ancient forests, to play in the swirling, roaring ocean. To live outside a cage. But now, whatever traces of hope may have remained have been scattered in the wind. And so, his struggle continues.

Eric would like to send his sincerest thanks to all of you. Your letters, your songs, your donations, your words of encouragement have kept Eric and his loved ones inspired and strong. Keep it coming! Eric has a long road ahead of him, but with your love and support he will press on. He remains strong in heart and mind. And he knows that dreams can never be caged.

Beekeepers call for immediate ban on CCD-linked pesticide

Portland, 21.12.2010 07:28

On December 8, Pesticide Action Network and Beyond Pesticides joined beekeepers from around the country in calling on EPA to pull a neonicotinoid pesticide linked with Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) off the market immediately. Our call is based on a leaked EPA memo that discloses a critically flawed scientific study, thus suggesting there may be imminent hazards to honeybees posed by continued use of clothianidin, the pesticide in question. Several issues are at play: poorly conducted science, a broken regulatory system that puts chemicals on the market before testing them, lack of transparency and, most critically, the survival of honeybees and commercial beekeepers.

CCD is the name given to the mysterious decline of honeybee populations across the world beginning around 2006. Each winter since, one-third of the U.S. honeybee population has died off or disappeared. CCD is likely caused by a combination of pathogens, the stresses of industrial beekeeping, loss of habitat and more. But many scientists believe that sublethal pesticide exposures are a critical co-factor potentiating this mix. In the U.S., agencies are focused on research, trying to quantify these risks. In Germany, Italy and France, they decided they knew enough to take action years ago, banning suspect neonicotinoid pesticides. Bee colonies there are recovering and beekeepers here are outraged.

Portland Fruit Tree Project announces expanded Fruit Tree Stewardship programs

Portland, 21.12.2010 07:28

This is an announcement of Portland Fruit Tree Project's 2011 Fruit Tree Stewardship and includes opportunities for interested individuals to get involved. Portland Fruit Tree Project (PFTP) is a non-profit organization that increases equitable access to healthy food and strengthens communities by empowering neighbors to share in the bounty and care of city-grown food resources. We register fruit and nut trees throughout the city, bring people together to harvest and distribute thousands of pounds of fresh fruit each year, and teach tree care and food preservation in hands-on workshops.

 http://www.portlandfruit.org

In 2011, PFTP will continue to expand its year-round Fruit Tree Stewardship programs. The goals of this program are to increase the health and abundance of registered fruit trees through volunteer-powered tree care services, and to engage tree owners and interested community members in hands-on opportunities to build skills and knowledge in fruit tree care. To accomplish these goals, we will offer an expanded series of Tree Care Workshops, and our unique Tree Care Teams program, now in its second year! More details below...



Being Subpeonaed by the FBI for Visiting Israel and Palestine

Portland, 21.12.2010 07:28

Being subpeonaed by the FBI to appear before a Grand Jury for the act of visiting Israel and Palestine...Sarah Smith statement at December 6 Press Conference, Chicago:

Friday morning, December 3, I received a phone call from an FBI agent. He asked if I had about 30 minutes to sit down and speak with him so he could ask me some questions. I asked about what and he said he "was not at liberty to discuss it." I then asked if I needed a lawyer present and he said it was up to me but that I was not in any trouble and that they just had a few questions. He then said that it had to deal with the trip I took this summer. He then emphasized, "I think you know which one I'm talking about."

The trip I took last summer was to Israel and Palestine. I am Jewish and wanted to see first hand what life is like for Israelis and Palestinians.I went with 2 Palestinian-American friends. You would think Jews and Palestinians going together to visit Israel and Palestine is something the U.S. government would encourage. Instead, we are now being ordered by the FBI to go before a Grand Jury for going on that trip.

9th Circuit Mandates New Trial in Free Speech &quot;Nazi Salute&quot; Lawsuit Against City

Santa Cruz, CA, 21.12.2010 07:28

Tim Hull, Courthouse News writes: The 9th Circuit on Wednesday [Dec. 15] revived the First Amendment claim of a man who was kicked out of a Santa Cruz City Council meeting for giving a Nazi salute. Chief Judge Alex Kozinski wrote that a councilman's ensuing "hissy fit" may have disrupted the meeting more than the silent gesture.

RIMC Stands in solidarity With Assange and Wikileaks

Rochester, 19.12.2010 07:16

Rochester Indymedia stands in solidarity with Wikileaks and Julian Assange. Our editorial collective believes in the importance of an independent press and the transparency of government—two principles adhered to by Wikileaks through its public release of hundreds of thousands of confidential state documents. It is one of the primary responsibilities of the press to report the truth; Wikileaks and Assange have done this and continue to do so much to the dismay of governments, public figures and multinational corporations.

Big business declares war on WikiLeaks, hactivists respond

United Kingdom, 17.12.2010 12:56

The websites of financial and technological companies that cut off services to whistleblowing website WikiLeaks have come under attack by supporters of transparency and openness across the world, in a coordinated campaign codenamed 'Operation Payback'. The companies, which include Amazon, PayPal, MasterCard, Visa and PostFinance, seem to have taken the arguably unlawful measures under pressure from the US government. The loose group of hactivists behind the attacks, known as Anonymous, had vowed to continue their 'digital sit-in' demanding total freedom of the Internet.

The state-corporate war on WikiLeaks follows legal and illegal attempts to take its website down, which were countered by supporters setting up numerous mirrors of the site; cyber attacks by what appears to be US government-sponsored hackers; and the politically motivated arrest of WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, in London over alleged sex charges he faces in Sweden.

City Council Sends a Hearty Merry Christmas to the District's Low-Income Residents

DC, 16.12.2010 23:34

On Tuesday, December 7, 2010, the DC Council voted on a last-minute measure to close a $188 million deficit in the fiscal year 2011 budget. On the chopping block were nearly $50 million in services for DC's low-income residents. Among these critical services were affordable housing programs, child care subsidies, interim disability assistance, HIV/AIDS screening, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits, and more. Thousands of residents demanded a simple solution of the DC council: a 1% tax increase on income over $200,000. This would have affected only 5% of DC's wealthiest residents, most of whom have not seen any of their city services cut and have not felt the crunch of this recession as low-income people have. This tax, as small as it is, would have raised more than enough revenue to allow the Council to make the better choice by restoring all the proposed cuts to safety net programs. Video

A line of vehicles stretched across the quarter mile lot. One car at a time would pull up, hundreds of volunteers would help unload it, that car would pull away, another would pull up in its place and the unloading process would start all over again. After about 45 minutes of this we were ready to begin [cont...]
