La Policía francesa amenaza con bloquear Indymedia Nantes e Indymedia Grenoble - 28 Sep 2017

Represión estatal contra IMC Grenoble e IMC Nantes

Tras la publicación de un comunicado en el que se reclamaba la responsabilidad por un incendio en un garaje en un depósito policial (gendarmerie o gendarmería) de Grenoble durante la noche del 20 al 21 de septiembre, Indymedia Grenoble e Indymedia Nantes han sido amenazadas por la policía francesa. Los administradores de estos sitios recibieron correos electrónicos de la Oficina Central para la Lucha contra el Delito Vinculada a las Tecnologías de la Información y la Comunicación (OCLCTIC) exigiendo que los artículos en cuestión fueran retirados de los sitios web en menos de 24 horas, so pena de dejarlos bloqueadoo y de-referenciados.

Los autores del comunicado explicaron que el incendio del garaje se había llevado a cabo como 'parte de una oleada de ataques en solidaridad con las personas que están siendo juzgadas', como los del incendio del coche de la policía Quai de Valmy . En este ataque incendiario de Grenoble, varias docenas de vehículos fueron quemados.


Repression Can't Silence Us: Not in Germany, Not Anywhere Else - 04 Sep 2017

Solidarity with Linksunten Indymedia

Linksunten.indymedia.org, the main independent media website in Germany, was banned by the German government's Ministry of Interior on August 25. Maintaining the website and using its logo are now considered criminal offenses in the country. Linksunten volunteers are being prosecuted as a "club," which means that administrators are considered responsible for everything that has been published. Administrators are also being accused of being members of a terrorist association.

Coordination des Groupes Anarchistes writes: This represents a new step in the repression of our activities and ideas in Europe. The last time something of this significance occurred was in 1995, when the German central power banned the newspaper "Radikal", which sparked many demonstrations all over the country, especially in Hamburg. In France, even though some music bands and anti-authoritarian information websites have been threatened for their lyrics or articles, we have never experienced such brutal repression against our means of expression and communication. This attack against a radical and anti-authoritarian information platform should remind us of the need to pay special attention to the defense of our means of communication in front of State repression.

Germany Indymedia is collecting donations in support of Linksunten Indymedia.

El gobierno alemán censura Indymedia. Qué significa y qué hacer - 28 Aug 2017

Linksunten Indymedia declara “Volveremos pronto”

El 25 de agosto, el gobierno alemán cerró el sitio de Linksunten Indymedia, una parte integral de la red global Indymedia (Independent Media Center), y la plataforma más usada en el idioma alemán para organizar y discutir políticas radicales de cambio social. Además han llevado a cabo allanamientos en Friburgo para confiscar computadoras y hostigar a quienes acusan de sostener el sitio web, justificándolo absurdamente en que los supuestos administradores constituyen una organización ilegal que busca destruir la Constitución alemana. Esto representa una escalada masiva en la represión estatal contra lo que las autoridades llaman “extremismo de izquierda”, sugiriendo de forma nada ingenua una equivalencia entre quienes buscan construir comunidades más allá del alcance de la violencia estatal y Neo Nazis organizando ataques y asesinatos como los ocurridos hace pocos días en Charlottesville, Estados Unidos.

En los últimos años, más atención se ha acumulado alrededor de linksunten, que ofrece un espacio para que las personas publiquen de forma anónima. Antes del encuentro del G20 del 2017 que tomó lugar en Hamburgo, la prensa hegemónica ya se encontraba señalando a Indymedia Linksunten, declarándolo el espacio para la coordinación de la militancia para las protestas contra el G20. El ultraderechista partido Alternativa para Alemania ( (Alternative für Deutschland, or AfD) inició una campaña contra el sitio web, impulsando expedientes sobre Indymedia en el Parlamento federal y tratando de forzar a los gobiernos locales a bloquear la plataforma junto a otras expresiones y organizaciones de izquierda y anarquistas.

Esta maniobra grosera muestra cuán asustadas están las autoridades ante el hecho de que las ideas radicales de cambio social se estén difundiendo y contagiando luego de las exitosas manifestaciones contra la cumbre del G20 en julio. Thomas de Maizière dejó muy en claro en su conferencia de prensa que este asalto a Indymedia es una forma de vengarse por la vergüenza que el Estado pasó durante la cumbre. También muestra cuán deshonesta es la retórica gubernamental y derechista sobre la libertad de expresión. De hecho, estos hipócritas sólo usan ese discurso para posicionarse a sí mismos en un lugar en el que puedan suprimir la expresión ajena. La solución contra el fascismo no es darle más poder al Estado para que controle los discursos, sino el movilizar a la población en general contra los fascistas y contra la infraestructura gubernamental que la extrema derecha intenta tomar.

En respuesta, Indymedia Linksunten lanzó una declaración en su sitio web al día siguiente declarando “Volveremos pronto.” Esto muestra que los activistas aún mantienen el control sobre su sitio web, y podría ser el comienzo de un importante efecto Streisand. Expresiones de solidaridad se siguen dando en toda Alemania, desde manifestaciones callejeras hasta banderas en partidos de fútbol.

(Nota: Ya que Indymedia Linksunten está ahora bloqueado por el gobierno alemán, quizás prefieras usar Tor o una conección VPN antes de entrar al sitio linksunten.indymedia.org)

West Papua: Neglected genocide - 29 Nov 2013

Indonesian police use Shootings, killings, beatings, arrests on West Papuan independence rallies

Rallies for independence across West Papua to raise Morningstar Flag

Indonesian police have opened fire on peaceful protesters in Jayapura, with at least four gunshot wounds and one death. West Papuan activists and families have been forced to flee to the jungle for safety. Indonesian security forces are conducting scores of raids, sweeps and offensives against West Papuan civilians. The attacks are happening during the visit of National Police Chief General Sutarman with over 200 people arrested across West Papua. Journalists have also been attacked by Indonesian police according to Amnesty International...Read more at San Fransisco Bay Area Indymedia. The Indonesian Police chief says any plans to free Papua from Indonesia won't be tolerated, including Flag raising ceremonies on the West Papuan national Day, December 1st.

Calls for Independence by West Papuans have been made since the sham "Act of Free Choice in 1969". They have suffered a neglected genocide at the hands of the Indonesian military (2004) with continued Repression (2007). Thousands of Papuans took to the streets in 2010 and in 2011 rejecting special autonomy, demanding a referendum on independence. Indonesia plans to build 1,500 km of new roads in the next two years to accelerate ‘development', increase military presence, and open up more illegal logging. Three Papuans highlighted the human rights abuses at the APEC meeting in Bali this year by scaling the Australian Consulate’s fence in the dead of night and hand-delivering a personal plea to open the Indonesian province to world scrutiny.

A new academic law and human rights report A slow-motion genocide: Indonesian rule in West Papua (PDF), details the extent of the genocide and abuse of human rights. (Review by Greenleft) Activists have called for Australia to End pragmatic complicity in West Papua in response to comments by new conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Imprisoned Papuan leader Selpius Bobii also responded saying, "We Live In Terror, Mr Abbott".

Climate IMC: Warsaw COP19 Climate Negotiations - 22 Nov 2013

Civil Society stages mass walkout protest from Warsaw Climate change negotiations

System Change not climate change banner in Warsaw

Civil society organisations abandoned the COP19 climate change negotiations in Warsaw on mass. Members from Greenpeace, Oxfam, WWF, Actionaid, Friends of the Earth, the International Trade Union Confederation (statement) and 350.org all started leaving the conference at 2pm. This is an unprecedented action, the first time several major civil society groups have staged a mass walkout.

Friends of the Earth International highlighted that the Warsaw Climate Change negotiations were failing, with Tension high in Warsaw talks as G77+China walk out. The role of Australia and reduced ambition of Japan  have been widely mentioned. Australia and Canada are seen as the major wreckers, but there has been substantial intransigence from much of the developed world to progressing the negotiations forward on finance, ambition, and a loss and damage mechanism. Poland's Coal Summit has shown the fossil fuel corporatism entwined in this COP with widespread dismay at the coal powered negotiations of COP19 and at UNFCCC official Christiania Figueres who gave the keynote speech at the coal summit

Climate IMC: Climate protests - 22 Nov 2013

Canadians and Australians protest climate wrecking policies and pipelines

30,000 people rallied for climate action in Melbourne, Australia

The weekend of 16th and 17th November saw tens of thousands of people in Canada and Australia out in the streets in over 260 protests against the climate policies of these countries. Australia and Canada are seen as the major wreckers in Warsaw at COP19.

The Saturday protests in Canada occurred from coast to coast to Repulse Bay, Nunavut on the Arctic circle, more than 10,000 people gathered in over 180 events co-ordinated by Defend our Climate. Many protests focussed on stopping further expansion of the Alberta tar sands and pipelines to move the bitumenous oil south to Texas, east through Ontario and Quebec, and west through British Columbia. On Sunday, more than 60,000 people attended climate protests across Australia, protesting the attempt to repeal carbon pricing and clean energy programs by the conservative Government lead by Prime Minister Tony Abbott, elected on 7 September this year, who denied any link between climate change and bushfires as unusually early and intense bushfires raged around Sydney.

Civil Society NGO and local Polish activists also staged a Climate Justice march in Warsaw in association with the COP19 climate change negotiations taking place. Super Typhoon Haiyan set the initial mood at the negotiations with Philippines negotiator Naderev Saño (Yeb Saño) saying "time to take action. We need an emergency climate pathway". There is widespread dismay at the coal powered negotiations in Warsaw with Japan and Australia being particularly singled out.

Climate IMC: Extreme Weather - 15 Nov 2013

Typhoon Haiyan causes death and devastation in the Philippines

Tacloban City devastated by Typhoon Haiyan On November 8 Super Typhoon Haiyan made landfall over Guiuan, Eastern Sama province in the Philippines, destroying coastal communities with ferocious winds and a storm surge of 6-7 metres (up to 20 feet). According to Dr Jeff Masters "Haiyan had winds of 190 - 195 mph (315 km/h) at landfall, making it the strongest tropical cyclone on record to make landfall in world history."

Authorities of Tacloban City with a population of 220,000 and capital of Leyte province, gave an early estimate that perhaps 10,000 people died from this one city. Many people were surprised by the huge storm surge tidal waves that inundated much of the city. Many smaller coastal villages were also devastated with most buildings destroyed or suffering severe damage. According to the UN Reliefweb report on 14 November the number of affected people has increased to 11.8 million. The official death count from Typhoon Haiyan is currently 4,460 but with numbers still increasing. There were 921,200 people displaced and 243,600 houses destroyed. A total of 2.5 million people are in need of food assistance.

Global Warming impacts escalate as Climate negotiations stall in Doha

Climate Change March in Doha

Climate Negotiations are over for another year with little progress in Doha by any one's measure as the scientific statements on climate change and the impacts we are already feeling as evidenced in record Arctic melting, and extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy and Typhoon Bopha in the Philippines, and Cyclone Evan in the South Pacific are growing much stronger.

Some of the latest scientific research shows:

BATTLE OF NOTRE-DAME-DES-LANDES: Megalomaniac Airport Project In Western France

During the weekend of 23-25 November, violent clashes occurred, as military police attacked activists and environmentalists on an area slated for an airport project in Notre-Dame-des-Landes – a village near Nantes, while riot police violently dispersed a support demonstration in the city. The events have forced major media and politicians to publicly admit that there is an issue.
