Corporate spy was active in Nottingham

United Kingdom, 09.02.2011 21:49

The Mark Kennedy case has thrown the world of police and private spying on activists into the spotlight. One of the many revelations about Kennedy is that he can be linked to private spying company Global Open. Kennedy worked as a consultant for them and set up his own company, Tokra, using the address of Global Open director Heather Millgate.

Nottingham Indymedia can reveal that a second spy linked to Global Open, Paul Mercer, was actively involved with environmental and animal rights campaigns in Nottingham, including Nottingham Against Incineration and Landfill (NAIL). Mercer was involved in groups in Nottingham in the period 2002-2007.

Mercer was publicly exposed for his role in spying on anti-arms trade campaigners, Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) in 2007. His contract for the operation was finalised through Global Open.

Призыв к действиям солидарности с 300ми иммигрантами участниками голодовки

Belarus, 08.02.2011 19:23

К сожалению нету времени на перевод призыва.

В Греции группа из 250 иммигрантов с прошлого августа самостоятельно и само-организованно готовилась к голодной забастовке, требуя прав для ВСЕХ иммигрантов в Греции. Они сами призвали к созданию инициатив солидарности в разных городах с условием что все желаюшие участвовать согласны с правилами которые они сами установили. К ним присоединились ещё 50 со всей Греции и с 25 Января они начали голодовку. 250 прибыли в Афины,а 50 в Салоники для придания голодовке всегреческого характера. Для проведения голодовки инициативами солидарности были захвачены в Афинах не используемая часть юридического факультета,а в Салониках 7ой этаж "Дома (продажных) Профсоюзов".

Следует текст самих участников голодовки:

"Мы иммигранты и иммигрантки со всей Греции. Мы приехали сюда выгнанные нищетой, безработицей, войнами, диктатурами. Западные транснациональные компании и их политические слуги в наших странах не оставили нам другого выбора, кроме как…

Good Old US of A

Portland, 07.02.2011 22:03

Suppose you had a country that invades other countries because they think they may be in some danger. This strong country just happens to be the biggest arms dealer in the world, the runner up not even close. This country has over 800 military bases, (maybe as many as 1000) around the world and 0 foreign bases on its territory. This is a rich country that got its start by slaughtering the inhabitants and taking control of the vast lands. This country tortures its prisoners, jails more citizens per capita than any other nation. This country will lock up those who cry for peace but honor those who lie, cheat and try to destroy all its freedoms. This country makes millionaires out of scoundrels and liars and the press is bought and paid for. The leaders say that we must go to war but stay back in their air conditioned halls of government and watch as millions of poor people are murdered or injured beyond belief. This country is not Germany of the 1930s or the U.S.S.R. of the 60s; not even Italy of the 20s; this is the United States of America of 2011. My country! I did not serve in the US Navy for this!

The people of the United States approved the "State of the Union" address by Obama a few weeks ago by a margin of 92% to 8%--I was stunned. These are just words that have already been forgotten, what the hell is the matter with our progressives in this country?

Gitmo is still open, DOD is considering pushing the withdrawal dates back in Iraq, we are still killing women and children in Afghanistan and now Pakistan. People are losing their homes at alarming rates, unemployment is at 9-26% depending on who you are and where you live. We are out of money in Oregon and will cut vital services to our schools and our most vulnerable citizens and say, "We just don't have the money."

The cost of our occupations and war for Portland is over 1.4 BILLION dollars, the cost for Oregon is over 9 BILLION dollars, yet not one politician has pointed this out during any budget discussions. We should have a counter in front of our City Hall telling people how much we are wasting supporting this corrupt empire; maybe people will begin to understand why we are going broke.



Charter Schools vs. Public Schools, Past and Present

DC, 07.02.2011 19:50

“The first charter school movement in the United States started from the Virginia Massive Resistance campaign,” said Shanta Driver, an education activist from Detroit and national co-chair of By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). “[It] was a campaign to defeat the desegregation order of Brown v. Board of Education, and it was local, white, racist organizing to create schools throughout the south that would be private schools, publicly funded and that wouldn’t be subject to court ordered desegregation.” This past April, Driver and other activists came to D.C. to protest President Barack Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s education policies which place great emphasis on promoting charter schools. In the south, charter schools “are, in their majority, all white schools,” Driver said. “And they’re being created combining public funding and private funding to create a separate educational system for many, many, many young white people.

FBI Infiltration of Anti-War Movement in Minneapolis

DC, 07.02.2011 19:50

The anti-war and international solidarity activists who are being called before a grand jury in Chicago have learned that beginning a few months before the protests against the Republican National Convention in the 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota, a law enforcement officer infiltrated the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee (AWC). The infiltrator went by the name Karen Sullivan, joined the AWC in April 2008, and about a year later she joined the Freedom Road Socialist Organization.

Срок под стражей четырех арестованных осенью социальных активистов продлен

То, что в Беларуси происходило с анархистами в сентябре прошлого года , сегодня в стране происходит со всеми, кто выступает против официальной политики государства. Однако мы не должны забывать тех 4-х человек, которые на данный момент арестованы беларускими правоохранительными органами и содержаться в заключении.

Сегодня (21 января) стало известно, что срок содержания Николая Дедка продлен до 6 марта, а срок следствия по его дело – до 9 апреля. Игорю Олиневичу, Максиму Веткину и Александру Францкевичу срок содержания под стражей был продлен до апреля месяца.

Ожидается, что дело всех четверых задержанных перейдет в стадию ознакомления с материалами уже в конце этого месяца.

На фоне “знаменитых” узников мы хотим напомнить что все эти четыре человека являются политическими заключенными. Для нас не является принципиальным совершали ли они преступления, в которых их обвиняют. Куда важнее тот факт, что наказания…



Хроника текущих событий — конец января

Последнее обновление — пятница, 21 января 2011, 22:00

Сегодня (21 января) стало известно, что срок содержания Николая Дедка продлен до 6 марта, а срок следствия по его дело — до 9 апреля. Игорю Олиневичу, Максиму Веткину и Александру Францкевичу срок содержания под стражей был продлен до апреля месяца.

В Москве 28 ноября неизвестными в штатском был похищен Игорь Олиневич.

В разрез международному законодательству уже 29 ноября Олиневич был привезен в изолятор КГБ, в котором он находится и по сей день. Информация о его местонахождении была получена от его матери, с которой связался предоставленный Игорю адвокат.



Дасылайце пакункі Ігару Аліневічу!

Стала вядома, што ўпоперак усім правілам перадачы прадуктаў і рэчаў у СІЗА КДБ у вагу перадач (не больш за 30 кг за штомесяц) цяпер ня ўлічваюцца пасылкі.

Таму кожны цяпер можа скарыстацца з магчымасьці даслаць палітзьняволенаму Ігару Аліневічу, затрыманаму 28 сьнежня па справе нападу на Расейскую амбасаду 30 жніўня мінулага года.
Праваабарончы цэнтр “Вясна” папярэджвае – Калі вы хочаце даслаць у “амерыканку” прадукты, абавязкова звярніце ўвагу, каб яны належалі да ліку тых, якія не псуюцца альбо могуць захоўвацца дастаткова доўга. З ежы можна адпраўляць:
- Хлеб
- Батон
- Цукеркі – карамелькі
- Сухары, сушкі
- Каўбасу сыравяленую і сыравэнджаную
- Ваду
- Мюслі
- “Ролтан”
- Цыгарэты
- Садавіну
- Гародніну (агуркі, памідоры і інш.)

- Шакалад

Брошюра &quot;Психология Допроса&quot;

Belarus, 07.02.2011 14:58

“В тот миг, когда ты преступил в мыслях, ты уже подписал себе приговор. Мыслепреступление нельзя скрывать вечно. Изворачиваться какое-то время ты можешь, и даже не один год, но рано или поздно до тебя доберутся.” Джордж Оруэлл

Об активистской безопасности и общении с органами сказаны миллионы слов, написаны сотни брошюр, практических советов, правил и памяток по эффективному общению с «правоохранительными» органами, проведены десятки семинаров, тренингов на эту тему. Но опыт показывает, что этого на практике оказывается недостаточно. Тому есть несколько причин:

1. Большинство участников движения не принимают все эти наставления всерьез, считая, что они не делают ничего такого, что может повлечь за собой серьезные последствия, воспринимают активизм как форму безобидного юношеского протеста, надеются, что вот их-то точно это не коснется (по принципу «Смерть – это то, что бывает с другими»).

2. Теория всегда расходится с практикой. Сколько ни читай юридических советов, на…



Вести из «американки»

Belarus, 07.02.2011 14:58

Через несколько дней исполнится 2 месяца с того момента, как в Москве «неизвестными» был похищен Игорь Олиневич. Через несколько дней родители обнаружили его в СИЗО КГБ, куда он был доставлен в нарушение всех норм международного права о депортации и выдаче преступников. Игоря обвиняют в участии в нападении на Российское посольство в ночь на 30 августа 2010 года. Молодой человек свою вину не признает. Адвокату удалось увидеть его только несколько раз с момента задержания, посещения не разрешают уже более месяца.
Тем не менее, Игорь не теряет бодрости духа, и популярно описывает свои приключения в «Американке».
Вот выдержки из некоторых его писем:

Вчера получил одеяло и сапожки и очень обрадовался, так как наконец заснул в тепле. Дубак тут стоит еще тот, в тройных носках все равно холодно. Так что для полного счастья не хватает только вязаных носков. Никаких других вещей мне не надо! Все есть, лишние шмотки…



Бегство от свободы

Belarus, 07.02.2011 14:58

180px-Anarchy-symbol.svg.png
Если я не стою за себя,
то кто встанет за меня?
Если я только за себя, то кто я?
Если не сейчас, то когда?

Изречение из Талмуда, Мишна, Абот

Прошло чуть более месяца с даты “выборов” – точки отсчета нового срока старого президента, точки отсчета волны репрессий, точки отсчета нового приговора беларусам – и опять 5 лет лишения свободы.

Тем не менее, мы считаем, что этот месяц принес категории еще мыслящих людей намного больше, чем прошедшая пятилетка и даже прошлые выборы. Казалось бы, ситуация не особо изменилась, официальные результаты выборов отличаются лишь с учетом небольшой погрешности, в количестве задержанных на Плошчы-2006 и -2010 нет большой разбежки, и тогда, и сейчас кандидаты в президенты оказались репрессированы. Разница только в масштабах репрессий.

Но, арестовав всех лидеров оппозиции, власти допустили огромную, возможно, даже смертельную ошибку. Своими действиями они инициировали слабое, но брожение умов.

Повсеместное…

The Indypendent Issue 160: 'All We Need is Hate'

NYC, 06.02.2011 23:59

The recent shootings in Tucson, Arizona have brought the question of right-wing violence to the forefront. Arun Gupta analyzes right-wing violence in the latest issue of the Indypendent:

"Numerous heavily armed and extreme-right fanatics have been arrested for making “terroristic threats” against the president, foiled before they could carry out plots to assassinate Obama, and in one instance killed be¬fore he could finish a radioactive dirty bomb – described as “far ahead of Jose Padilla, the accused al-Qaeda dirty-bomb plotter” – that he intended to detonate in Washington, D.C. Others have been arrested while on their way to murder public figures or after making death threats against them. Some pundits have issued explicit calls for someone to shoot Obama, while many prominent right-wing talk-show hosts and Republicans have openly endorsed armed violence against the federal government or sitting politicians.

This is occurring as anger is being whipped up, especially by the right-wing media, against Muslims, Mexicans, gays and lesbians, and politicians, which serves to legitimize violent attacks and murders against members of these groups.

The Tucson shooting was thus no surprise, but it should serve as a wake-up call that hate and violence are encoded in the political DNA of the American right."

See the link to the article "Merchants of Hate" below for the full article.

Also included in this issue of the Indypendent: James Parrott of the Fiscal Policy Institute gives his prescription for solving New York's budget crisis; former teacher Norm Scott skewers the push for a data-driven system to evaluate teachers; and much, much more.
