A Call for International Days of Action in Support of Alexei Gaskarov and Maxim Solopov

September 17–20, 2010

On July 28, 2010, more than two hundred young antifascists and anarchists carried out a spontaneous demonstration outside the town administration building in Khimki, a suburb of Moscow. They demonstrated in defense of the Khimki Forest, which was at that time in the process of beings cutting down for the needs of big business. The demonstration, during which several windows were broken, received a great deal of public attention. The authorities responded with a wave of repressions. The day after the demonstration, two well-known social activists, Alexei Gaskarov and Maxim Solopov, were arrested. They are now threatened with up to seven years in prison for disorderly conduct, although there is no evidence of their complicity in illegal activities. Meanwhile, the police continue to hunt down and harass other activists, especially those involved in the antifascist movement.

National Governors Association Convention
Call to Action

This weekend, while United States governors are milling around in luxuriant hotels and admiring old slave plantations, residents in the coalfield regions of Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, are experiencing firsthand the dire effects of mountaintop removal coal mining. Because of the indifference and complicity of the governors of these states, over 500 square miles of forested mountains have been leveled in southern Appalachia, lost forever to the greed of politicians and businessmen. So while America’s state leaders are patting each other on the back and rubbing shoulders with obscenely wealthy corporate executives, let’s get out there and let them know that we’re not going to sit idly by while they reduce the natural world to coal dust and capital returns.

Come to Charleston, South Carolina, August 4th-6th! Join coalfield citizens and community activists as we confront the injustices perpetrated by a government driven by profit. With creative irreverence and insightful confrontation we will hold our supposed representatives accountable -to their peers and to the public- for their insatiable appetite for industrial expansion, and the havoc it wrecks on the land and people of Appalachia!

For more information & details of the weekend’s actions:

Email: MNTcommunityinfo@riseup.net
Call: 843-723-5203

& get on down to Charleston!

FREEGAN.INFO UPDATE--Call for Media Spokespeople
Freegan.info, a group and website promoting freeganism, has gotten a ton of media requests lately from journalists all over the country who want to find local freegans to interview.

Freeganism is a lifestyle based around adapting practical strategies to minimize personal consumer impact, cut financial support for the capitalist system that is destroying the earth and human and animal lives, and create new methods for people to survive and thrive based on sharing, mutual aid, social responsibility, and ecological concern. Freegan practices include dumpster diving for food, clothing, funiture, etc., squatting buildings, guerilla gardening, train hopping, and more. If you aren't familiar with freeganism, visit http://freegan.info. Or for a quick definition of freeganism, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeganism

(Add this line for animal rights pages: If you aren't sure what freeganism has to do with animal rights, visit http://http://freegan.info/?page=ARFreegan . As many animal rights activists have heard inaccurate descriptions of what a freegan is, you may be surprised to learn that freeganism is a lifestyle that powerfully reinforces animal rights ethics.)

Please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested. If you'd like to participate in a media story in any of the towns listed below, call Adam at (201) 928-2831 or email adam@freegan.info

Here are the cities we are currently looking for interviewees in or near:

In light of the events last week in Arlington Heights and Toledo, people really should make it out for this... here is the original call to action.

Chicago, IL – Following a Tuesday funeral service in which over 700 people packed the main floor and balcony of the Kenwood United Church of Christ, family members and supporters of police shooting victim Walter Armstrong will hold a protest march to Chicago Police Headquarters this Saturday, October 22. The protest will begin at 12 noon at the scene of the killing, 49th & Drexel, one block away from Operation P.U.S.H. headquarters, with a march to Chicago Police Headquarters at 3510 S. Michigan Avenue.

Armstrong family members and supporters angrily note glaring inconsistencies in the police account of their killing of Armstrong, such as police spokesperson Pat Camden's claim that Armstrong was wounded in the chest, a charge contradicted by both the coroner and witnesses to the police shooting. Eyewitnesses also report that police handcuffed the fatally wounded Armstrong rather than seeing to it that he received immediate medical attention.

"I've been there, so I know what they [the police] do," Rev. Leroy Sanders said during his sermon at the standing room only service Tuesday night. "Until we stand up as a people, they will keep on doing what they're doing."

Community activists say Armstrong’s killing is part of a wider pattern of rampant police violence, noting an October 13th article in the Chicago Defender which reported, "As of last week, there had been 30 incidents in which a civilian had been shot by Chicago Police [since January 1st]. Ten of these incidents were fatal shootings."

Armstrong is survived by his fiance, a 7-year-old and an 8 month old infant. The family urgently needs support for funeral and burial expenses. All are urged to make contributions to them by sending checks to the family's church. Please make checks payable to "Word of God Life Changing Ministries," write "Walter Armstrong Family Fund" in the memo section of your check, and mail them to 17961 Lavergne Avenue, Country Club Hills, IL 60478.

There is a bit of blame going about, regarding a lack of state and federal coordination (already has in many mainstream sources). The result will be a power shift to the federal end. They have already declared the problem to be due to state and local management, and Bush has denounced their organizing abilities and emergency response in public statement, despite the lack of federal assistance that was expected and cutting of needed funds for disaster prevention over the years. Requests for budget increases were filed multiple times, and funding was cut instead. One example: http://www.americaswetland.com/article.cfm?id=241&cateid=2&pageid=3&cid=16

Mayor Naglin of NO has repeatedly expressed fears of death by CIA on live TV.

Now.. http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,1280,-5255686,00.html
Conveniently timed death of Renquist, in his home. Two empty seats available. Reporting in US seems to be overshadowed by Katrina. Renquist was one of the few who tended to rule in favour of delegating more local powers over federal.

Info on possible canidates to fill those seats. I bet the end result is conveniently neocon.

FEMA is doing their job well, cutting lines and turning away supplies: http://thinkprogress.org/2005/09/04/worst-abandonments/
If you think FEMA is all gravy, baby, and are unfamiliar with what they do the 95% of the time when there *isn't* a disaster, google for REX-84, Operation Cable Splicer, and Operation Garden Plot. A good bit of results out there are on sites filled with disinformation, but you can find references to all of the above programs in official (mostly blacked out) documents. There is some truth peppered throughout, and in combination with a large number of Executive Orders by presidents over the years that stack up to quite a bit of power in terms of interning and relocating citizens.

And the jacked-up gas prices and airline security measures limit everyone's mobility...

Katrina helping Haliburton, just like Iraq and 9/11 helped Carlisle, Haliburton, and friends.

As our descent continues..
whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

New England post-capitalist front
Hello everyone

Good to meet you all - I'm here in New England - mostly Manchester NH but I also frequent Cambridge and Providence when I can...

I'm not so much an anti-capitalist as I am a believer that capitalism must be evolved and eliminated - as Marx basically suggested - so the world can benefit from shared production of all goods, and a free society can be achieved without poverty or crime.

I do believe that commerce in general leads to greed, selfishness and the enslavement of humankind (plus, crime) and it also creates man's current alienation, directionlessness and misery.

Basically, human nature is bullshit - we made this, there is a better way, and with all the technology we have now, it's ridiculous the world has come to this.

I suppose I'm an anarcho-socialist.



Hook up if you're nearby - MySpace too - links are around. Sorry for the x-posting, but wanting to reach out.
