Save Castle Mill Boatyard

United Kingdom, 30.03.2005 01:21

Update (11/03/05): The planning enquiry is ongoing and will continue on 16th-17th May. Meanwhile British Waterways have served a notice for repossession of the site. More details here.

This historic boatyard in the heart of Jericho is about to be closed if the planning enquiry (8th March ongoing) finds in favour of British Waterways and Bellway Homes, (yes you guessed it - more luxury apartments are being planned).

This site has been a boatyard for over 150 years, and continues to provide an essential service for residential and pleasure craft. If this closes, it will force boatowners to travel a day each way to get their MOT equivalent (can you imagine the furore if car drivers were made to do a similar thing?). It is even more essential for emergency repairs as it is the only boatyard in the region which has a crane lift to clean and repair hulls.

Revolutionary Communists Take on Christian Fascists Over Schiavo

Arkansas, 30.03.2005 00:01

"One thing that God has brought to us is Terri Schiavo to elevate the visibility of what's going on in America."

Tom DeLay, Congressman from Texas, House Republican Majority Leader,
speaking to his co-thinkers of "Family Research Council"

Tom DeLay is a powerful right-winger who wraps his ambitions in a frenzied god-speak. He is the cynical manipulator, who redistricted Texas to disenfranchise political opponents, and is now rewriting congressional ethics procedures to rescue himself from his own colossal corruption. He is an aggressive liar, who recently dared describe Terri Schiavo as "lucid."

But, for a half second there among allies, he let out something true.

This huge national power struggle over Terri Schiavo's fate has, in fact, elevated the visibility of what's going on in America.

RNC Protestor Pleads Guilty to Attempted Assault: 7 Months in Prison

NYC, 30.03.2005 00:01

During last August's Republican Convention protests, police penned in protestors in one location. Plainclothes police officers rode unmarked motor scooters into the non-violent crowd, running over a woman's foot and ramming protestors. One protestor, Jamal Holiday, was accused of kicking an officer and has pleaded guilty to attempted assault after being held 7 months in jail on $250,000 bail. No word yet from RNCLegal about this update. No word yet either from the Young Republicans, one of whom was filmed kicking an ACT-UP protestor as she was dragged to the ground. Concerns have been raised in the movement around attention paid to white activist arrests at events like Critical Mass compared to arrests of young black protestors like Jamal.

Tennessee Mountain Ridges Ripped apart by Greed. We need a new vocabulary for destruction and greed. I feel the lack of two vocabularies. I feel the lack of words to describe the scope of destruction being done to our mountains in Tennessee my home. I also feel the lack of words to describe the people who would destroy a thousand year heritage of water for a few years boost in the profit margin. Pictures are a good way I suppose. But we need a new vocabulary for destruction and greed.

SF Board of Supes to Consider Marijuana Dispensary Moratorium Proposals

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.03.2005 07:20

At 5pm on March 29th, the SF Board of Supervisors will hear Green Party Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi's proposed moratorium on pot clubs. Many medical cannabis supporters believe this should be protested immediately and loudly. They say, "We will not go back to the fascist 50s; we voted 78% for Prop 215; we must continue to provide leadership by encouraging pot clubs everywhere and by supporting legislation to legalize all drugs as exists in most countries, thus getting all drugs off the street and eliminating the prison-industrial complex."

The proposed moratorium is Item 35 on the March 29th agenda. Medical cannabis is also on the agenda as Item 29, sponsored by Supervisors Mirkarimi, Alioto-Pier, Maxwell, Peskin, McGoldrick, Elsbernd, Ammiano, Ma, Dufty and as Item 28. The Board of Supes Meeting begins at 2pm, and if people want to hear discussion of these two other items, they should arrive as early in the meeting as they can.

In advance of the meeting, people have been asking for supporters to protest via phone, email, and snail mail. Read more

Lepp Co-Defendant May Be Allowed Use of Medical Cannabis While on Bail

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.03.2005 06:00

After multiple rescheduled court dates and even an early court appearance on March 11th of which his wife, attorney, and supporters were not informed, Eddy Lepp has been having more regular hearings in Judge Patel's court in San Francisco. Eddy Lepp's supporters have been led to wonder if this rescheduling was an attempt by the government to subvert his legal rights. Lack of warning about an appearance would keep Eddy from preparing his defense. People who have attended Eddy's court dates are under the impression that the judges and lawyers from the US Public Defender's office have developed the habit of handling Eddy's case like a hot potato, tossing him from courtroom to courtroom, reluctant to even grant Eddy a hearing since his most recent arrest on February 16th, 2005.

Eddy had an asset forfeiture hearing on March 21st. The next day at 9:30am he had an appearance before Judge Patel to discuss his status and determine counsel. Flyer His appearance in Federal Court on March 22nd on cannabis cultivation charges revealed Judge Marilyn Patel's support for medical cannabis use by defendants already out on bail. But it is still unclear whether the judge's sympathies will result in Lepp's release from jail. >br />
The judge allowed for Lepp's former attorney Dennis Roberts to be released from the case, discharged David Fermino, Lepp's former federal defender, and then Judge Patel turned her attention to Lepp's new attorney, Shari Greenberger, who is representing Lepp along with with Tony Serra and Omar Figueroa. Greenberger said the attorneys needed two weeks to pull together their motion for Lepp's release on bail. Greenberger also asked Patel if Lepp could be transferred to the federal detention center from the Santa Rita jail, where he has been held since his arrest. She said Lepp has been placed in the general population at the jail has feared for his safety. She added that Lepp was struggling with health problems.

"If only he (Eddy) could get his marijuana," laughed Patel, who suggested that Lepp could possibly be transferred to the North County Jail. The judge said she would discuss the request with the marshals and set another bail hearing for Tuesday, May 31st at 10:00. When Harris Tabak, the attorney for Lepp's co-defendant, Daniel Barnes, asked whether his client could use medical cannabis while out on bail, Patel surprised the court by suggesting that Tabak take the matter up with pre-trial services. Prosecutor David Hall objected saying the government opposed the use of medical cannabis for defendants on pre-trial release because "it is against the law." "Whose laws?" asked Patel. "What about state laws?" "That will be taken up in this case," replied Hall.

In regard to Lepp's request for bail, Patel rejected Roberts's argument that pre-trial services had not revoked Lepp's standing bail on the earlier August charges. Patel noted that the new charges stemming from the February DEA raid on Lepp's property had resulted in a superseding indictment and the former bail arrangements did not apply. During the March 14th hearing to discuss items that federal authorities had seized from Lepp's home during the February raid, Lepp complained that Roberts had not submitted a request for an injunction to protect Lepp's cannabis grow, as had been filed in the WAMM case in Santa Cruz.

Lepp attempted to explain why he had been growing cannabis again. After Lepp's arrest for 32,000 cannabis plants last August, federal authorities claim they seized another 6,000 plants in the most recent February raid. "I'm a row farmer and patients have to be assured that they will have plants for the next growing season. That's why I wanted the injunction." "But one of the conditions of your release was that you weren't going to grow any more," said Patel. "I gave my word not to plant until I had my injunction, but I have to take care of my family and my patients," Lepp stated. "We all like him," said Judge Patel. "The question is whether what he has been doing is legal or illegal." Read more



Academic Freedom In Peril: Berkeley Forum On Ward Churchill

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.03.2005 05:20

On March 28th 2005, a forum on the topic of academic freedom was held at UC Berkeley. The primary focus was on the case of Ward Churchill at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He and Natsu Saito were on this panel along with Prof. Carlos Munoz, Dean of Arts and Humanities Ralph Hexter, and the head of the UCB Ethnic Studies Department Ling-chi Wang.
Churchill described the distinction between first amendment freedom and academic freedom. He also repeated his explanation of the Eichman comment, talked about a bar in the financial district that displays the teeth that Custer knocked out of his indian sex slave's mouth, and touched on his opinion of Thomas Brown, John Lavelle, concern over his ethnicity, and his income.

The Dean commented on the difficulty of prescribing 'balance' in the classroom because how would one define the center of balance. Saito covered a few legal topics relating to academic freedom, and discussed personal political expression by professors, and what speech isn't covered by first amendment.

&quot;Grandma Joan&quot; Spends 14th Day in Jail

Rogue Valley, 29.03.2005 02:21

Joan Norman is still incarcerated for her forest defense actions. Supporters are starting a fund-raiser:"Joanathon," raising money for each day she spends behind bars. Norman refuses bail; her next court date is April 25th.

Joan Norman, 72, of Cave Junction was arrested on March 14 during a demonstration blocking logging trucks from entering Fiddler Mountain, part of the Biscuit timber sale in the Siskiyou National Forest. This was Joan's second arrest that week. The courts revoked her conditional release due to her "repeat defender" status. There have been 48 arrests since logging began in Old-Growth reserves on March 7th; Joan Norman is the only activist to remain behind bars. Norman will not post bail as a matter of principle.

“There Was No Checkpoint, There Was No Self-Defense” Giuliana Sgrena Sets The Record Straight

NYC, 28.03.2005 18:31

Giuliana Sgrena would probably be the first to say that to focus on her case would be to miss the point on the extent of the daily, horrific violence Iraqis face at the hands of US soldiers. Sgrena is the Italian war correspondent that was shot by US forces as she was en route to the Baghdad airport after being freed from a month of being held hostage by an Iraqi resistance group. She knows better than most that if she and the senior Italian intelligence official killed by US troops as he tried to save her were merely Iraqi civilians, this would be even more of a non-story than it already is in the US press.

International Protests to Call Attention to Thousands of Haitian Political Prisoners

Since the February 29, 2004 coup that overthrew Haitian President Aristide,, thousands have been killed for protesting his removal. Those who aren't killed are often put in jail just for expressing their support for Lavalas [Aristide¹s party], even for wearing Aristide t-shirts in peaceful demonstrations. Their continued imprisonment underscores what many see as the US government's disregard for Haiti's people and its constitution, and is evidence of the complete dissolution of freedoms of speech, association and press in Haiti. This situation has kept Prime Minister Yvon Neptune, Minister of Interior Jocelerme Privert, and Lavalas activist Annette Auguste jailed in miserable conditions along with hundreds of grassroots activists, labor organizers, and residents of poor neighborhoods. The plight of the prisoners, which has been dramatized by Prime Minister Neptune and Minister Privert's recent hunger strike, is urgent.

On Monday, March 28th at 4:30PM in San Francisco's UN Plaza, the Haiti Action Committee will hold a rally and vigil to call for the restoration of the legitimate government of Haiti, and to protest the continued incarceration of at least a thousand Haitian political prisoners. In Haiti, on Tuesday, March 29, 2005 Father Gerard Jean-Juste will lead a peaceful march in commemoration of the 18th anniversary of Haiti¹s constitution. Fr. Jean-Juste is a recent political prisoner who has been unrelenting in his solidarity for the political prisoners still in Haitian jails.

The film is presented by Jemma Dinnigan who is a member of the Travelling Community. The four myths that are addressed in the film are Traveller Weddings, Halting Sites, Education, and Working for a Living. In each section, she talks to travellers, primarily from two halting sites in the Dublin 15 area, Morgan Place on the Navan Road, and St. Philomena's in Ballycoolin to the north of Blanchardstown. Travellers talk about their experiences relating to each of these myths. For example, Margaret Hand from St. Philomena's site in Ballycoolin talks about the myth that "all Travellers live in dirty caravans on the site of the road. Their halting sites are always full of rubbish". Margaret responds: "After seeing St. Philomena's statue in Sligo, we decided to name the site after her. St. Philomena's Court has 5 detached bungalows which are all newly built. In St. Philomena's Park there are about 10 bays altogether. There's a pre-school here for children between 2 and 5 years. As well as that, a caretaker lives on site and he's a Traveller himself. He's responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the site, so there's a high standard of care here." In the film, you can see how well both halting sites are maintained. Christine Collins is a student in St. Dominics College in Cabra, just off the Navan Road. She responded to the myth of Travellers not caring about getting on in education or not being interested in learning. "I want to go on to study Accountancy in Trinity College Dublin. Business Studies is my favourite subject but I have to get through secondary school first though! I'm studying 13 subjects for my Junior Cert, so its very stressful! I think more Travellers are staying in school longer because they want to get good jobs. A few of my relations went onto third level so it definitely runs in the family."
