MDRC's Rent Reform Assault: Section 8 tenants vs. affordable housing industry

The Fight or Flight Tour comes to Atlanta!

This summer, The Bunny Alliance, Resistance Ecology, and the Earth First! Journal present the Fight or Flight Tour, a collaborative nationwide tour with three distinct objectives: 1) to intensify The Bunny Alliance’s campaign against Delta Air Lines and the broader Gateway to Hell campaign to end the transport of animals to labs, 2) to share skills and build connections within the grassroots animal and ecological activist movements, and 3) to promote coalition building and solidarity with a diversity of movements and communities.

The tour will be in Atlanta on July 27th and 28th for a series of protests against Delta Air Lines and a workshop at Dulce Vegan Bakery and Cafe.

Oil Train Week of Action July 6-13, 2014

 

Please repost far and wide.

Are explosive Bakken crude oil trains coming through your town?  / Actions you can take now!

July 6, 2014 marks the one year anniversary of the first major oil train explosion in Canada which took the lives of 47 people.  The week of July 6-13, 2014 is an international week of action to mark this anniversary and make sure these folk’s lives were not lost in vain.   Your actions should not be limited to this one week as we are dealing with an entrenched oil and rail industry and don’t settle for anything less than the a complete ban on any oil shipped by DOT 111 and DOT 111a cars.

 Actions are being posted on www.stopoiltrains.org

On World Economic Forum on East Asia 2014

All Glitz, Nothing New to Solve Poverty and Inequality

PHILIPPINES: The World Economic Forum ( WEF ) on East Asia 2014, a gathering of 70 government and public figures and 460 business leaders here in Makati City, conclude its three-day meeting today, May 25, 2014. The affair is about to wrap up as an expensive and glorified talking shop with no new ideas and solutions to offer to what is Asia’s, even East Asia’s , and especially the Philippines’ most stubborn and alarming problems: poverty and inequality.

The WEF 2014 theme : “ Leveraging Growth for Equitable Progress” is itself an admission that poverty and inequality are problems that undermine the triumphalist hype for economic growth that the region’s elites see as the main source of sustained economic progress. The discussions however never strayed from the old, worn-out free market, neo-liberal prescriptions that over three decades have failed to overcome these problems.

Demonstration Against No-Knock Police Raids/ Justice for Bounkham Phonesavanh

Date/Time: 
Sat, 06/07/2014 - 11:00am - 1:00pm
Location: 
Habersham County Courthouse
295 Llewellyn Street
Clarkesville, GA
United States

There will be a demonstration at the courthouse and the sheriff's department in Habersham County on Saturday, June 7th.

A quick synopsis of what happened:


On Wednesday, May 28th, the Habersham County Sheriff's department performed what they call a 'no-knock' drug raid on a suspected drug dealers house after a "confidential informant" (aka- hired snitch) made one purchase of methamphetamine. 


During the raid the SWAT team deployed an explosive 'flash grenade' into the home which landed in the crib of a 19-month old toddler, causing severe burns to his face and destroying one of his lungs.
The raid produced no drugs, no weapons, and did not produce the suspect they were looking for. 
The child is STILL at Grady Hospital in a medically induced coma and has only been given a 50% chance of survival. 

Stalling Will Not Work: WRAS Protest Moved to June 29

https://defendwras.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/stalling-will-not-work-prote...

We have decided to push back the protest until June 29th.

As many of you know, the radio station takeover by GPB has been pushed back until this date. This delay has been caused by two things: one, by our pressure on GSU and GPB and two, by bureaucratic hold-ups on the part of GPB.

We will use this delay as an opportunity to bring more attention to the day of action. We feel that this is another way we can keep applying pressure: the threat of massive collective action on campus in the event of a takeover can be very powerful.

We do not intend to allow this delay to discourage us or to divert our focus. Stalling will not work. We are excited about having more time for student programming – we are very excited – and we are hopeful about the potential to stop the takeover altogether.

Time to act with urgency and determination to improve the lives of Filipino workers

Philippines: As the country observes the International Labor Day, Akbayan Party would like to draw attention to the inability of the current economic growth to translate into an improvement in the lives of ordinary workers from both the urban centers and the countryside. While the Aquino administration takes pride on the 7.2 % growth rate for 2013, it cannot mask the fact that this growth has been insufficient to curb massive unemployment and poverty.
