Climate Emergency: Thousands march for Climate Action

15.06.2009 12:20

Thousands march in Melbourne for Climate Action

Thousands of people around Australia rallied for emergency action on Climate Change on June 13, calling for 100% renewable energy by 2020 and demanding that Australia must make the shift from fossil fuels to wind, solar and other available renewable technologies. The National Climate Emergency Rally was held in capital cities around Australia, with people siting down outside Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's city office in Sydney and a sitdown protest in front of the Melbourne Town Hall where the ruling Australian Labor Party were holding their State conference.

This comes as progress on climate negotiations in Bonn, Germany, were blocked by the US Administration, with the US still talking about zero per cent reductions by 2020 on 1990 levels. "Industrialised countries need to assume their historical responsibility and pay back their climate debt. Developing countries must stay strong in calling for climate justice. By ignoring calls to repay their climate debt and hindering progress in these talks, rich countries are jeopardising the lives and livelihoods of millions of people." said Meena Raman, Honorary Secretary of Friends of the Earth Malaysia in a media release.

Perú acusa a Bolivia de intervención interna al pronunciarse sobre la masacre del Amazonas, gobierno boliviano rechaza declaraciones

08.06.2009 18:32

Perú 08 Jun. (CMI Sucre).- El pasado 7 de junio el embajador de Perú en Bolivia, Fernando Rojas, calificó este domingo de intervención en asuntos internos de su país las declaraciones condenatorias de algunas autoridades bolivianas sobre la sangrienta masacre a campesinos y policías en el departamento Amazonas peruano. Mientras el Ejecutivo boliviano negó la posible injerencia y pidió al Gobierno de Alan García asumir sus responsabilidades sobre ese hecho.

The Angola Three: Torture in Our Own Backyard

11.05.2009 10:55

Together, Herman Wallace, Robert King and Albert Woodfox have spent more than 100 years in solitary confinement (pictured, left to right).

They are known as the "Angola Three," a trio of political prisoners whose supporters include Amnesty International, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Congressman John Conyers, and the ACLU. Kgalema Mothlante, the President of South Africa says their case "has the potential of laying bare, exposing the shortcomings, in the entire U.S. system."

“My soul cries from all that I witnessed and endured. It does more than cry, it mourns continuously,” said Black Panther Robert Hillary King, following his release from the infamous Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola in 2001, after serving his last 29 years in continuous solitary confinement. King argues that slavery persists in Angola and other US prisons, citing the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution, which legalizes slavery in prisons as “a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted." King says: “You can be legally incarcerated but morally innocent.” READ MORE with VIDEO & PICS

Barrick-Recommended Military Force burns down hundreds of homes in PNG

01.05.2009 16:43

Hundreds of homes in the Porgera valley of Papua New Guinea are being set aflame. Local human rights organizations in Porgera claim that these fires are part of a strategy to clear people out of the way for the expansion of Barrick Gold's Porgera mine.

On April 27th, without prior warning, the indigenous land owners of the villages surrounding Barrick Gold’s Porgera open pit mine were violently evicted by a police and military operation with 200 troops. “Operation Ipili” was launched during the middle of the day to allegedly make way for the expansion of a Barrick gold mine. This effective State of Emergency in Porgera was motivated by situation reports presented by Barrick (PNG) Limited, according to Laigap Porgera Member of Parliament Phillip Kikala.

In Wake of US Supreme Court Decision, Abu-Jamal's Appeal Supporters Mobilize around New Book, Birthday

19.04.2009 11:14

On April 6, the US Supreme Court rejected radical journalist and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal's appeal for a new guilt-phase trial. The Court has not yet decided whether it will consider the Philadelphia District Attorney's appeal of two lower court rulings that Abu-Jamal deserves a new sentencing hearing if the death penalty is to be re-instated. This means that if the Supreme Court rules in favor of the DA, Abu-Jamal could be executed without a new sentencing hearing.

In response, Abu-Jamal's lead attorney Robert R. Bryan will be filing a "petition for re-hearing" at the US Supreme Court. Emergency meetings have been held in several cities (1, 2) to coordinate grassroots response, and over 3000 people have signed an online petition in an effort coordinated by anti-death penalty activists from Germany. Photo from December 2008 protest in Pittsburgh, PA.

The rejected appeal (technically called a petition for a "writ of certiorari") was based primarily on the US Supreme Court's 1986 "Batson v Kentucky" ruling which stated that a defendant deserves a new trial if it can be shown that the prosecutor used peremptory strikes to remove otherwise qualified jurors simply because of their race. At Abu-Jamal's 1982 trial, prosecutor Joseph McGill used 10 or 11 of his 15 strikes to remove otherwise acceptable black jurors. He was subsequently convicted and sentenced to death in the shooting death of police officer Daniel Faulkner. Listen to Abu-Jamal's own response, interviewed by Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio. More Coverage: KBOO Radio, Uprising Radio, and DN! | WBAI | Democracy Now

Abu-Jamal continues to file news dispatches from death row (including John Hope Franklin: The Passing of a Griot and Summitry and Punditry on the G-20 meetings in London), and supporters are working to get the word out about his new book, Jailhouse Lawyers: Prisoners Defending Prisoners v. the USA, published by City Lights Books. Events will be held in the US around April 24, which is Abu-Jamal's birthday. In Philadelphia, two supporters were arrested on April 11 while putting up posters for the book release event — read report from Philly IMC. Events are planned in the following cities: Philadelphia (including a Revolutionary Week of Events) | New York City | Oakland | Los Angeles | Boston | Portland | Seattle & Olympia, WA | Houston | Washington, DC | Baltimore, MD | More Info & Updates from Abu-Jamal-News.Com



The Demarest Factor: The Ethics of U.S. Department of Defense Funding for Academic Research in Mexico

Simón Sedillo, 16.04.2009 04:08

On October 23, 2006 the Lawrence Journal World or LJ World published an article which silently uncovered a funding scandal within Kansas University, in Lawrence, Kansas. In 2005, the university’s department of geography received at least $500,000 in Department of Defense funds to map communally held indigenous land in the states of San Luis Potosi, and in Oaxaca, Mexico.

As a result of this original story, on November 26th, of 2007 elenemigocomun.net published a feature follow up story on the funding scandal titled “The Road to Hell”, which elaborates on the the potential dangers of this type of militarily funded mapping project. Since the publication of this 2007 article, myself and a growing number of community members and students from both sides of the U.S. Mexico border, have engaged in several extensive investigations into the details of this particular research project. Our growing concern has revolved around, academic ethics violations due to improper transparency with communities about the research funding, and serious U.S. Army violations of Mexican sovereignty, and of indigenous autonomy. Our collective research over the last year has resulted in several key pieces of irrefutable evidence, demonstrating both academic ethics violations, and serious violations of Mexican sovereignty and indigenous autonomy.

Protests by the Save Lake Cowal campaign have halted work at the Barrick Gold open pit mine at Lake Cowal, New South Wales, Australia over the Easter Weekend. Lake Cowal is an ephemeral lake lying in the Lachlan River plain within the Murray-Darling Basin, home to many migratory water birds and sacred sites of the Wiradjuri people.

Twenty Eight people were arrested on Sunday when protestors walked onto the open pit mine closing it down. They were authorised to enter the mine site by Wiradjuri Tradtional Owners.

Dia 19 de março completaram-se seis anos da ocupação do Iraque pelos EUA. Naquela semana ocorreram manifestações em todo o país, mostrando o escândalo e a destruição continuada provocada por esta guerra, e relacionando a guerra externa com o ganho das corporações domésticas, a desigualdade e o racismo. Muitos eventos ocorreram no sábado, 21 de março, patrocinados pela coalizão ANSWER e coincidindo com uma marcha até o Pentágono em Washington, DC. Os manifestantes também tiveram como alvo a "Veterans Administration" e quatro empresas que estão lucrando com a guerra. [Leia o relatório]

Com olhos no futuro, um memorial nacional foi lançado em Olympia, WA, em 20 de março. Nos próximos meses, a tentativa é construir memoriais sobre a guerra em cidades diversas, homenageando as vítimas civis por agressões dos EUA. Na costa leste, grupos anti-guerra estão se unindo para parar a comercialização de artigos ligados à guerra em uma grande loja na Pensilvânia.



Make NATO History!

Autonomous Mediacollective Freiburg, 29.03.2009 22:53

Documenting Revolution - Against NATO!

No less than the very continuance of this military alliance is at stake. Expect broad resistance from all section of the left from labor unions through to extra-parlimentary radical leftists – as well as heavy state repression.

In Strasbourg a resistance camp is under construction, while the Convergence Center (CC) in Freiburg is already in use by activists getting ready for the summit protests. Another CC will open in Strasbourg on the 31st of March. The Infopoints have published an infosheet to support the campaign.

The flagship of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the M/Y Steve Irwin, is heading back from the Antarctic Whale Sanctuary where it has been on patrol to enforce international conservation regulations in protection of the area's great whales. Since its departure from Brisbane, Australia on December 4th, the ship and its crew have been involved in various confrontations with a Japanese Whaling Fleet, which continues to operate a commercial whale hunt in the area illegally.

On December 26th, the Steve Irwin confronted the Japanese vessel Kaiko Maru. The ships collided and Sea Shepherd crew deployed butyric acid on its decks. From 1st February the whaling operation was shut down for 8 days straight with both sides of the conflict accusing each other of dangerous manoeuvres and tactics. On February 6th, the Steve Irwin had collisions with the harpoon ships Yushin Maru No 2 and Yushin Maru No 3, when it tried to block the ships from offloading dead whales onto the factory ship Nisshin Maru. As an international crew of 40, activists from Australia, America, Canada, United Kingdom, South Africa, Sweden, Bermuda, Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, New Zealand and Japan manned the Sea Shepherd vessel during the campaign which was dubbed operation Musashi.

Nessa segunda-feira (9 de fevereiro de 2009), a policia de Kent prendeu um homem em Sheffield, enquadrando-o sob a Lei de Crimes Graves 2007 em relação à recente apreensão do servidor da Rede Indymedia. A casa dele foi invadida, e todos os equipamentos de computadores e documentos relacionados foram levados. Ele foi liberado após oito horas. A pessoa não tinha nenhum acesso técnico, administrativo ou editorial ao site Indymedia do Reino Unido. Ele só estava associado ao projeto por hospedar um servidor da Rede.

A prisão ocorreu sob a Seção 44-46 da Serious Crime Act, que foi aprovada como lei no dia 1º de Outubro de 2008 para combater graves crimes internacionais como tráfico de drogas, prostituição, lavagem de dinheiro e assalto à mão armada. As seções 44-46 referem-se a "incentivar ou apoiar delitos"

A polícia de Kent reivindica os endereços de IP de duas publicações de comentários anônimos em um relatório sobre um recente processo judicial que julgou uma ação de libertação animal, os comentários tinham em seu conteúdo detalhes pessoais de um juiz. O endereço de IP de quem publicou estes comentários não está gravado, pois o Indymedia Reino Unido não loga endereços de IP. Esse fato foi reconhecido pela Polícia do Transporte Britânica em 2005, após a apreensão do Servidor do CMI Bristol.

The Deadly Face of Development: Struggle Against Evictions in Korea

03.02.2009 17:18

On January 20th, an illegally and incompetently conducted raid on activists and tenants protesting their forced eviction from central Seoul left 6 dead. This incident ignited immediate and continuing demonstrations against police violence, massive redevelopment, and the administration that has exacerbated both of these issues. South Korea's redevelopment projects have always met with fierce resistance, as landless poor were sacrificed for the profits of wealthy conglomerates. This violent crackdown in Yongsan neighborhood, however, has lead to an unprecedented show of support among diverse populations in solidarity with those struggling for housing and survival.



Obama, Guantánamo and the “War on Terror”

11/01/2009 protest at Market and Powell Streets in San Francisco, USA

Former Guantánamo prisoners including Moazzam Begg and Chris Arendt, a former guard, are completing a UK speaking tour to “mark seven years of unlawful detention, abuse and torture”. The tour, organised by Cage Prisoners started in London on 11th January 2009, exactly seven years after the first transfers to the prison torture camp at Guantánamo Bay at date which was marked in London by a weekend of actions and in the US by a National Day of Protest: Close Guantanamo and End U.S. Torture Policies Everywhere. Sami al-Haj, a former Guantánamo prisoner and Al Jazeera journalist was due to be one of the speakers on the UK tour but instead he joined a Free Gaza boat which was fired on and didn’t make it. By the Sheffield meeting, held on the date of Obama’s inauguration, he had been replaced by Omar Deghayes another former Guantánamo prisoner. In Liverpool the meeting “was held on the same day as the US president signed an order to close Guantanamo. Moazzam Begg was not impressed, and commented that Barack Obama spoke about ‘outlawing torture’ as though he himself had just decided to make it illegal: “It has ALWAYS been illegal, at least in any civilised country”" Further reports can be found on the tour blog.

Police Seize UK Indymedia Server (Again)

01.02.2009 23:59

On 22 January 2009 an Indymedia server was seized by the Police in Manchester. This was related to postings about the recent Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) trial.

Kent Police had e-mailed imc-uk-contact in the morning requesting that personal information about the Judge from the recent SHAC trial in the UK be removed from the site. However this information had already been quickly removed in line with IMC UK policy. The e-mail also requested information relating to the poster be retained. Indymedia as an open posting news service does not log such information about its sources.

The machine was handed to the Police by the management of UK Grid, a Manchester based colocation facility, without a warrant being shown. It is believed that a warrant for this one server may exist and have been issued by a Chief Inspector. As the server was a mirror of the site, it can be concluded that the validity of the seizure wasn't checked, and the police attacked Indymedia infrastructure in the UK.

Other sites that have been affected as a result of this seizure include London Indymedia, the global Indymedia documentation project server, la Soja Mata – an anti-GM soya campaign focusing on South American development, Transition Sheffield and a Canadian campaign against the 2010 olympics.

A América Latina vive atualmente um processo de grandes transformações, que têm posto no palco novos atores como protagonistas dos fenômenos sociais, políticos e econômicos que têm surgido, desde comunidades indígenas e originárias, os bairros, os mercados, os desocupados, que em sua maioria são uma população diversa étnica e culturalmente, mas também os jovens e mulheres.

A Bolívia não está à margem desse processo, que a partir do ano 2000 tem sacudindo os alicerces do sistema neoliberal, e em outubro do 2003 viveu uma insurreição social que mudou a situação política do país, ao impor uma agenda orientada a reconfigurar o Estado ante o aprofundamento das brechas entre ricos e pobres e os altos níveis de exclusão sócio-cultural e política.



Participe do ajuri do caracol de Outeiro

CMI Brasil, 11.01.2009 20:14

Flor da Palavra

A rede Flor da Palavra de inspiração zapatista convida todos e todas a participar do ajuri de construção do primeiro caracol no Brasil na Ilha de Caratateua (Outeiro), Belém (Brasil) a partir de janeiro de 2009. Os "caracóis" são as sedes para a organização da autogestão nas regiões zapatistas em Chiapas (México), unindo os seus municípios e comunidades autônomas e facilitando a comunicação dos povos indígenas com a solidariedade da sociedade civil nacional e internacional. O "ajuri" é uma prática tradicional dos povos caboclos e indígenas da Amazônia, conhecida por muitos como "mutirão", na qual grupos e indivíduos se unem em solidariedade para, por exemplo, "limpar" o terreno para a nova roça. No Outeiro o ajuri é para comprar um terreno e iniciar a construção física e humana de um espaço permanente que sirva para voluntários e moradores cultivarem a autonomia local e a comunicação com outras lutas.

Uma forma de solidariedade é enviar doações para a compra do terreno pelo paypal:




Crescem protestos pelo mundo em resposta à guerra terrestre de Israel em Gaza

No sábado, 3 de janeiro, tropas israelenses entraram na Faixa de Gaza com o objetivo declarado de destruir o governo eleito em Gaza, Hamas, e com o objetivo provável de ajudar dois políticos israelenses de grosso calibre nas eleições que se aproximam (ver [1] | [2] | [3]). A ofensiva por terra veio depois de oito dias de ataques aéreos, iniciados em resposta aos foguetes de pequeno alcance que mataram quatro israelenses. No momento em que este texto foi escrito, pelo menos 660 palestinos morreram e 3.000 foram feridos, dos quais estima-se que 50% sejam civis. Relatos: IMEMC.org | Cyprus Indymedia | Indybay

Resistência e solidariedade continuam a crescer em Israel e na Cisjordânia ([1] | [2]), apesar da forte repressão. Três manifestantes na Cisjordânia foram mortos, e em Israel centenas foram presos por protestar contra a ânsia assassina. Em Gaza, sete profissionais da saúde foram mortos pelas forças israelenses, cinco deles desde que começou a invasão terrestre.

Conforme as tropas se juntaram, os protestos foram tomando lugar em centenas de cidades por todo o globo, exigindo que Israel interrompa as agressões, e continuaram crescendo desde então. Pelo menos 700.000 pessoas organizaram-se e marcharam em direção a embaixadas e gabinetes de políticos por todo o mundo, exigindo uma intervenção internacional e taxando o silêncio como cumplicidade. Na Noruega, mais de 7.000 pessoas juntaram-se ao Socialist Left Party's Facebook exigindo a expulsão do embaixador israelense. Na quarta-feira em Toronto, um grupo de mulheres judias ocupou o consulado israelense até que fossem retiradas à força pela polícia(Ouça Relato em Áudio). Nos Estados Unidos foi marcada uma demonstração de caráter nacional para sábado, 10 de janeiro. Internacionalmente, uma rede crescente de organizações está convidando para boicote, desautorização e sansões (BDS) coordenadas contra Israel e as corporações israelenses ([1] | [2]).
