A Failed Policy? Boston Debates the War on Drugs

Boston, 19.11.2004 05:59

Boston, Massachusetts, USA - "We have a public policy crisis: we are spending billions of dollars to fight a war on drugs and we don't seem to be able to stop the flow of drugs into this country. We are spending more and more public dollars on housing men and women who are involved with the drug trade, drug addiction seems to be increasing, and yet we don't seem to have the money to help those who want to turn their lives around and recover from addiction." With these words, Boston City Councillor Chuck Turner started the public hearing to investigate the war on drugs. He called the hearing "just the beginning of a long dialogue in Boston to see how we can move forward".

One Hundred New Pirate Radio Stations...

Santa Cruz, CA, 19.11.2004 00:34

After broadcasting over the radio airwaves in the Santa Cruz, Ca. area for almost 10 years without a license, in defiance of federal regulations, one day this fall, the U.S. government decided to take some action. On Sept. 29, 2004, Federal Marshals, aiding the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), raided Free Radio Santa Cruz (FRSC), seizing radio equipment to disable their broadcasts. I wondered what FRSC volunteers, and other microradio, or “pirate,” radio station volunteers, were feeling about this raid. It seems so often the government does things like this to “set an example” for others, to be a warning to others engaging in similar activity, to deter them from continuing on with defiant behavior…and sometimes that type of governmental intimidation works, and sometimes it does not. Questions linger, such as what the federal government intends to do with FRSC’s seized radio equipment. I interviewed several West Coast microradio station volunteers about their reactions to the FRSC raid for this article.

An Injury to One is an Injury to All

Santa Cruz, CA, 18.11.2004 23:52

Abuse of power is always wrong. Abuse of animals legitimizes the abuse of power over human beings (sexism, racism, homophobia and all the other "isms"). This leads to war.

What's the point of knitting a sweater-while unraveling it at the same time? Women fighting for reproductive and equal rights, social justice workers, gays and lesbians fighting homophobia, civil rights activists and even environmentalists "unravel" all their good work if they abuse their power over animals and Nature! What a bitter irony!

What is the source of racism, sexism, homophobia, exploitation of the poor by the rich, genocide, war and all the other ways humans oppress each other? Why are we arrogantly destroying Mother Earth who sustains all living beings-including humans and their global economy? Why do these insane practices from the age of barbarism continue?

SaveWCAL delays MPRs financing of WCAL purchase

Minneapolis/St. Paul, 18.11.2004 23:42

Did the St. Paul City council fund the purchase of independent radio station WCAL by Minnesota Public Radio? And was their process for doing so legal? Are they using revenue bonds to improve blighted areas to increase the blight on the radio dial?

Butler Ford: International Day of Protest!

SOU Students go and ticket Butler Ford for enviro violations

Minimalism and Protesting: A handfull of Southern Students take on Butler

I was part of a small protest at Butler Ford on November, 18th. The protest was called in honor of "The International day of protest against Ford". Only 6 people in Ashland got the memo, but our will was strong. We stood in front of Butler with signs and ticketed the SUV's in the front row of the lot with mock citations with facts about our oil consumption. Soon we were outnumbered by bored Butler employees who had dealt with our kind before. They all had nicely pressed matching shirts and wore the equivalent of an entire tube of hair gel collectively.

Soon a battle of wits ensued, they were friendly, and so were we. They claimed our action was honorable, but misguided. First they attempted to expose us as hypocrites. They asked us what we drove, we responded truthfully, we all didn't own cars and relied on mass transit, with the exception of a Volkswagen owner who runs his car on vegetable oil. They claimed that Ford was a friend to the environment, and the cleanest car company and we should go protest one of their competitors. They had some interesting facts to support this claim.

Interview: Krzysztof Krol of the Polish Anarchist Federation

Boston, 18.11.2004 15:39

During a workshop on solidarity economics at the WoGan Decriminalizing Resistance conference last weekend (November 12th-13th) I met Krzysztof Krol, a member of the Anarchist Federation of Poland who resides at the Rozbrat Collective in the Polish city of Poznan. Of the many participators in that particular workshop only the two non-U.S. presenters seemed to have practical solutions for working class people. While Americans talked of seed exchanges, alternative currencies, and green investment schemes Krol told of his groups foray into radical labor organizing and a presenter from Argentina’s MST talked about a community center built by the community itself geared around food production and education. As the debate over the validity of alternative currencies roared on past the workshop’s scheduled time I pulled the labor-minded Krzysztof aside to get a one-on-one interview.

Protest continues against Foreshore and seabed bill

Aotearoa, 18.11.2004 01:50

"The courts of this land have said Maori have a right to investigate their ownership of foreshore and seabed but the Government has ignored these rulings, this legislation is confiscation."

UPDATE:The Parliamentary office of the Maori Party has been flooded with calls from people, asking how they can express their views about the passing of the Foreshore and Seabed Bill. Contact the Governor General.
Labour MPs Tim Barnett and Mahara Okeroa had their office tagged sometime overnight in Christchurch.

The Foreshore and Seabed Bill became legislation on 18 November 2004, despite months of massive public protest, 4000 written submissions - with 95% voicing opposition, and public consultation all being ignored. Many Maori and Pakeha see the bill as a further continuation of the practice of the state sanctioned confiscation of Maori land. Metiria Turei of the Greens calls the legislation "unnecessary" and descended from the "racist legislation of our colonial forebears ... and to our shame, it is done in the name of all New Zealanders"

Approximately 100 people attended a demo at parliament as the bill went through its second reading. [ photos ] Demonstrations have been planned to occur simultaneously with the movement of the bill through the house. Ngati Kahangunu have events planned in Napier and Hastings, about 150 people from Te Arawa delivered their message to MPs Mita Ririnui and Stevie Chadwick, a rapid response demo was held in Christchurch, and other ongoing activities can be viewed Here.

Amongst the speeches at parliament, it was expressed that all other options have been utilised and closed with the end result being that Maori have again been the victim of state confiscation, and now it is the time for direct action. Already in Auckland Helen Clark's electoral office had its front window smashed as an axe was thrown through the glass. Leaflets were left with responsibility being claimed as a Pakeha action against the Labour governments legislative steam-roller.

What Tennessee Can Tell Us About US Politics

Tennessee, 17.11.2004 23:16

Tennessee is a strange place politically. We went 57% for Bush this election, both of our Senators are Republicans, and most people consider Tennessee a very conservative Bible Belt state. Despite these facts, Democrats still wield an enormous amount of power here in a sort of political-reality-warp-field. For example: our Democratic Governor has one of the highest approval ratings in the country; most of Tennessee's Congressmen are Democrats; the state House and Senate were both overwhelmingly Democratic up until this election, and despite the fact that Republicans won control of the State Senate for the first time since the Civil War, they are still going to let a Democrat remain as the Speaker of the Senate! I predict that the national Democratic leadership will be studying Tennessee closely if they want to figure out how to reclaim the South.

Urbana City Council to consider RESOLUTION on &quot;Democracy Now!&quot;

Urbana-Champaign, 17.11.2004 23:11

On Monday, November 22nd at the 7:30PM, the Urbana City Council will consider a resolution directing the City of Urbana to begin airing "Democracy Now!" on UPTV, local public-access cable channel 6, by January 3, 2005. This resolution was drafted to counter ongoing censorship of this programming by Mayor Todd Satterthwaite. A strong public turnout in support of "Democracy Now!" is needed to encourage the City Council to support this resolution. Continued resistance from the mayor is expected (see the draft resolution text in this article).

More Day Laborers Arrested in Woodbridge

DC, 17.11.2004 19:13

Three day laborers were arrested on charges of “loitering” while peacefully seeking work adjacent to a church and 7-Eleven on the corner of Route 1 and Longview Drive. This arrest comes just weeks after the October 19th mass arrest of 25 day laborers in the same location. The workers arrested Monday face charges of “loitering” and have been transferred to INS custody for deportation. Transfer from county police to INS is permitted under new Virginia law HB 570, but is still illegal unless the individual has a previous history of deportation or felony conviction.

Sami in Palestine: The Passing of Abu Amar

Portland, 17.11.2004 04:06

It was before the first light of day when the prayers started. They came crackling through mosque speakers as tired and worn as throats weary from two intifadas worth of shouting. They permeated stone and concrete walls of camps and villages, and roused fitful dreams in the sleepy heads of the resistance, and they didn't stop. They didn't stop like the everyday morning call to prayer of Ramadan. They continued all morning, all afternoon, and into the night. "He's dead," they said when I awoke, "the old man is dead," but everyone already knew.

That day there was a demonstration in the town square in Nablus, as in every Palestinian town to memorialize Abu Amar, known to the rest of the world as Yasser Arafat. Shops, schools, and other establishments were closed for 3 days to show respect. Likenesses of the late president plastered the territories from the sides of buildings to the hoods of taxis. Crowds gathered in the streets donning their keffiyas, carrying flags, banners and guns, shooting into the air to punctuate eulogies. It was a show of pride, nationalism, unity, and defiance. It was a show of love, reverence, and grief.

EFF Continues Push for Access to Secret Court Order

Portland, 17.11.2004 03:27

San Antonio, TX - Today the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a reply brief in a federal court in Texas supporting its motion to unseal a secret court order. That order had led to the seizure of two servers hosting several websites and radio feeds belonging to Indymedia, a global collective of Independent Media Centers (IMCs) and thousands of journalists.

EFF filed its reply after the United States Attorney's Office in San Antonio, Texas, filed an opposition brief urging the federal court to refuse EFF's request to unseal. The opposition brief argued that secrecy was required to protect "an ongoing criminal terrorist investigation" and that the confidentiality provisions of a Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) trumped the rights of Indymedia in this case.

This marks the first time that the federal government has formally admitted to the secret order's existence. In its reply brief, EFF reminded the government that treaties are limited by the Bill of Rights, including the First Amendment right of access to court proceedings.

Close Nuclear Centers before it's too late!

The owners of the world "divvy up the pie" of nuclear energy even killing those who oppose them, as we saw during the protests against Castor, where a pacifist was assassinated. Their main weapon is money: they support the military industry, impeding the development of solar energy, whitewashing their image with lies and they promote it as the solution for climate change. They don't care that this kind of energy is an untrustworthy supply with the serious problem of disposal of nuclear waste and the incidence of frecuent accidents. Facing this threat and irresponsibility, society realizes that the organism responsible for the supervision, CSN (Council for Nuclear Security) , doesn't have credibility and defends itself carrying out european campaigns in favor of this madness, and more than one million european people signed their agreement. In Catalonia, to close the nuclear centers will implicate a revolution, as so many scientists promote, saving Terres de l'Ebre (area around Ebre river) and living really sustainably without radioactive contamination.
