A protester in the peaceful Occupy Oakland demonstration, was shot in the head

The world is watching: we are all Scott Olsen!

While the Iraq Veteran and Occupy Oakland protester remains in critical condition, let us send a powerful message to those in power: the world is watching!

Yesterday, the United States and the world witnessed yet another gross violation of the basic human right to popular assembly and peaceful protest. A 24-year old Iraq veteran Scott Olsen, a protester in the peaceful Occupy Oaklandshot in the head during an extremely violent police crackdown on the movement. He remains in critical condition with a fractured skull and brain swelling. demonstration, was
Scott is a former marine and a member of Veterans for Peace. He served 2 tours in Iraq (although he opposed the war) and came home safe. Then, in Oakland, he was struck in the head by a rubber bullet or other “non-lethal” projectile while exercising his patriotic duty to demand a government that is accountable to its people. When others tried to help him as he lay unconscious on the ground, they too were deliberately shot with rubber bullets and flash bang grenades.
The crackdown on Occupy Oakland and the shooting of Scott Olsen is rapidly becoming a symbol for the indiscriminate attacks on unarmed civilians and the violent police repression of our global protest movement. From Athens to New York, from Barcelona to Boston and from Cairo to Oakland, a pattern is revealing itself that shows authorities desperately clinging to power through the exercise of brute force and wanton criminality. This cannot stand.
At the same time, we know that if our governments resort to violence, we must be doing something right. In just a few months, our movement has managed to uproot the implicit consensus that used to underpin the dominant neoliberal world order. By publicly displaying our discontent, by openly contesting the hegemony of financial capital, and by fearlessly challenging the criminal and corrupt elites that are supposed to represent us, we have revealed the real power relations in our society, as well as the undemocratic essence of the system itself.
Let us all keep Scott and his family in our minds in these difficult days and hope for a full and speedy recovery. Let us also not forget that, along with Scott, millions of people around the world are exposed to state violence on a daily basis. Let us remember that we are not only to be outraged at the repression of our movement, but also at the brutality leveraged against those who do not even have the luxury to speak out and protest, including many Oakland residents, who have been suffering from notorious police abuse for decades on end.
But most important of all, on this day, let us send out a powerful message to those in power: the world is watching! We will not stand by idly as you violate the very principles upon which your mandate depends. We will not close our eyes as you brutalize our brothers and sisters around the world. We will not back down. We will not give up. As Victor Hugo once wrote, you can stop an invasion of armies, but you cannot stop an idea whose time has come.
Here are a few things you can do to help us stay united against police brutality:
  1. Join the We are all Scott Olsen Facebook page to express solidarity and denounce the violent police repression of our peaceful protest movement;
  2. Go onto the Facebook page of Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and the website of the City of Oakland (choose safety/police in the drop-down menu) to express your disgust with her decision to evict the camp and authorize the use of brute force against peaceful protesters;
  3. If you are an Oakland resident, join the campaign to Recall Mayor Quan;
  4. Follow Occupy Together and take to the streets of your city, demanding action to be taken against those responsible for violating human rights and inflicting injuries upon our people;
  5. Realize that at the end of the day, we need to get the police on our side in the struggle against financial power and political corruption — so be civil and respectful, and keep fighting peaceably for your rights.
We are the change. We will rise above this. The world is watching.




Call to action: #RobinHood global march on October 29

On the eve of the G20 in France, let the people rise up and demand the imposition of a 1% #ROBINHOOD tax on all financial transactions and currency trades.
Adbusters, the Canadian anti-consumerist magazine that made the initial call for the occupation of Wall Street, is calling for another global day of action on Saturday, October 29. Here is an excerpt from their rallying cry:
This is a proposal for the general assemblies of the Occupy movement.
On October 29, on the eve of the G20 Leaders Summit in France, let’s the people of the world rise up and demand that our G20 leaders immediately impose a 1%#ROBINHOOD tax on all financial transactions and currency trades. Let’s send them a clear message: We want you to slow down some of that $1.3-trillion easy money that’s sloshing around the global casino each day – enough cash to fund every social program and environmental initiative in the world.
Take this idea to your local general assembly and join your comrades in the streets on October 29.
for the wild,

A l’acabar l’acció, la terra i el planter es va portar a diferents horts comunitaris de Barcelona: a l’Hortet del Forat de la Vergonya, a l’Hort del Fort Pienc, el nou Hort de Poblenou i a l’Hort del Xino. Els hortolans de l’hortet del Forat ja ens han enviat les imatges de com ha quedat l’hort amb el nou parterre, fet amb la terra i el planter de l’acció.
Moltes gràcies a tots i totes les horteres que heu fet possible que aquesta acció tirés endavant, i retornésl sòl dels horts comunitaris!

OCT 15th Global revolution: protests in 1,000+ cities — in videos

from our friends of 

Millions of people took to the streets of over 1,000 cities across the world yesterday to protest against corporate greed and for a real global democracy.
Compiling this incredible list of videos was probably the single most exciting thing we’ve done since we started ROAR. When we set up the blog in August last year, we knew something was in the air but we never even dared to expect anything like this. Just 10 months after Tunis and Tahrir, this weekend we witnessed the globalization of the resistance: millions of people in 1,000 cities in over 80 countries on 6 continents uniting for global change. Brothers and sisters, we are making history. And we’re only just getting started!

Sgt Shamar Thomas is a bear of a man. If another police riot breaks out in New York, you definitely want this guy on your side. So when he confronted a small army of policemen this weekend, the officers were rightly shaking in their boots. The Washington Post has some background on the amazing standoff he had with NYPD last night.
Have a look at this video to see the type of police brutality that Thomas was referring to:

Intervención de Slavoj Zizek en Liberty Plaza, Nueva York


En el crack de 2008 se destruyó más propiedad privada, conseguida con gran esfuerzo, que si todos los presentes se pusieran a destruir día y noche durante semanas. Nos dicen que somos soñadores. Los verdaderos soñadores son aquellos que piensan que las cosas seguirán siendo como son indefinidamente. Nosotros no somos soñadores, sino los que estamos despertando de un sueño que se ha convertido en pesadilla. No estamos destruyendo nada, sino siendo testigos de cómo el sistema se destruye a sí mismo.


The Occupied Wall Street Journal


Panic of the Plutocrats

By Paul Krugman

October 10, 2011 "NYTimes" - -It remains to be seen whether the Occupy Wall Street protests will change America’s direction. Yet the protests have already elicited a remarkably hysterical reaction from Wall Street, the super-rich in general, and politicians and pundits who reliably serve the interests of the wealthiest hundredth of a percent.

And this reaction tells you something important — namely, that the extremists threatening American values are what F.D.R. called “economic royalists,” not the people camping in Zuccotti Park.

Consider first how Republican politicians have portrayed the modest-sized if growing demonstrations, which have involved some confrontations with the police — confrontations that seem to have involved a lot of police overreaction — but nothing one could call a riot. And there has in fact been nothing so far to match the behavior of Tea Party crowds in the summer of 2009.

Slavoj Žižek at Occupy Wall Street: “We are not dreamers, we are the awakening from a dream which is turning into a nightmare”

Slavoj Žižek visited Liberty Plaza to speak to Occupy Wall Street protesters. Here is the full transcript of his speech.
Don't fall in love with yourselves, with the nice time we are having here. Carnivals come cheap—the true test of their worth is what remains the day after, how our normal daily life will be changed. Fall in love with hard and patient work—we are the beginning, not the end. Our basic message is: the taboo is broken, we do not live in the best possible world, we are allowed and obliged even to think about alternatives. There is a long road ahead, and soon we will have to address the truly difficult questions—questions not about what we do not want, but about what we DO want. What social organization can replace the existing capitalism? What type of new leaders we need? The XXth century alternatives obviously did not work.

Occupy Wall Street: The Most Important Thing in the World Now

By Naomi Klein
I was honored to be invited to speak at Occupy Wall Street on Thursday night. Since amplification is (disgracefully) banned, and everything I said had to be repeated by hundreds of people so others could hear (a.k.a. “the human microphone”), what I actually said at Liberty Plaza had to be very short. With that in mind, here is the longer, uncut version of the speech.
October 07, 2011 "The Nation" --  I love you.

And I didn’t just say that so that hundreds of you would shout “I love you” back, though that is obviously a bonus feature of the human microphone. Say unto others what you would have them say unto you, only way louder.

Yesterday, one of the speakers at the labor rally said: “We found each other.” That sentiment captures the beauty of what is being created here. A wide-open space (as well as an idea so big it can’t be contained by any space) for all the people who want a better world to find each other. We are so grateful.

Declaration of the Occupation of New York City

Posted on September 30, 2011 by NYCGA
This document was accepted by the NYC General Assembly on september 29, 2011

As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

Noam Chomsky to RT: Bush torturer, Obama just kills

sorry for the commercial at the beginning!...
excusas por el anuncio al principio!...

Pinning its hopes on the sole support of the US, Israel risks a collapse if it is ever withdrawn - much like apartheid-era South Africa, prominent scholar Professor Noam Chomsky warns. ­He recalls how South Africans felt safe to ignore a UN embargo and corporations pulling out of their country throughout the 1980s, as long as the Reagan administration continued to support them. As soon as the US withdrew its support, the apartheid regime collapsed. "For 35 years, the US and Israel have been rejecting a political settlement that is supported virtually by the entire world. A couple of months ago, there was a meeting of the oligarchs -- people who pretty much run the economy [of Israel]," Chomsky says, "and they warned the government that it better accept something like this resolution, because otherwise, Israel will be, as they put it, South Africanized: even more isolated, with boycotts, refusal to load ships, and their economy will collapse."

Exclusive "Occupy Wall Street" Unaired Fox Footage


Fox: Jesse, so Ray, your partner here, your ..

Ray: comrade.

Fox: Your colleague, she’d seen the protests in Greece and Europe and elsewhere. Did you guys take your cue from that? Are you hoping to cite certainly what was a lot of the tension, if not police activity. I know over the weekend there were over 100 arrests and you guys got things fired up. Are you taking your cues from the international movement and how do you want to see this? If you could have it in a perfect way, how would it be?

Jesse: Well I don’t know, its really difficult to answer questions leading to those conclusions. I’d say that we didn’t take our cue leading off of anybody really. It became a more spontaneous movement. As far as seeing this end, I wouldn’t like to see this end. I would like to see the conversation continue. This is what we should have been talking about in 2008 when the economy collapsed. We basically patched a hole on the tire and said let the car keep rolling. Unfortunately it’s fun to talk to the propaganda machine and the media especially conservative media networks such as yourself, because we find that we cant get conversations for the department of Justice’s ongoing investigation of News Corporation, for which you are an employee. But we can certainly ask questions like you know, why are the poor engaging in class warfare? After 30 years of having our living standards decrease while the wealthiest 1% have had it better than ever, I think it’s time for some maybe, I don’t know, participation in our democracy that isn’t funded by news cameras and gentlemen such as yourself.

McKenzie Wark on Occupy Wall Street: 'How to Occupy an Abstraction'

By Mc Kenzie Wark / 03 October 2011

The occupation isn't actually on Wall Street, of course. And while there is actually a street called Wall Street in downtown Manhattan, “Wall Street” is more of a concept, an abstraction. So what the occupation is doing is taking over a little (quasi) public square in the general vicinity of Wall Street in the financial district and turning it into something like an allegory. Against the abstraction of Wall Street, it proposes another, perhaps no less abstract story.

NYPD Arrests 700 #OccupyWallStreet Protesters On The Brooklyn Bridge

Protesters started marching up the pedestrian walk way over the bridge while others tried to take the traffic lane. For a few minutes officers held the line and then they turned around and led the way up the traffic lane on the Brooklyn Bridge. From what I saw no police told any of the protesters to leave until they created a barricade in front of the march about halfway through the bridge. They then pulled vans and buses up to the back of the group and started arresting everyone.

In total over 700 people were arrested.


Diez tesis sobre las rebeliones árabes

ADONIS 02/10/2011

El poeta sirio saluda los movimientos en el norte de África y Oriente Próximo como un cambio que va más allá de lo político e incide en lo social y lo cultural. Y defiende con vigor el laicismo y la igualdad de la mujer

Primera tesis. ¿Qué perderían los árabes hoy si desaparecieran todos sus regímenes? Lo más probable es que la inmensa mayoría de los árabes contesten: no perderíamos nada. No obstante, esta misma respuesta es la que convierte a la acción por cambiar dichos regímenes en una suprema responsabilidad histórica. El cambio no debe reducirse al aspecto político, de poder, sino que ha de ser global y radical, es decir, que transforme la estructura sociocultural sobre la que se levantan dichos regímenes. El régimen político es parte de un todo, por lo que un mero cambio en cuanto al poder, y nada más, no será más que una acción superficial, y nos devolverá, más pronto o más tarde, a los mismos problemas.

In what appears to have been an unprecedented coordinated clampdown on peaceful protest, the NYPD today trapped and arrested hundreds.
Today, New York witnessed an unprecedented clampdown on the constitutional right to peaceful civic protest: in what appears to have been a coordinated move by authorities, the NYPD tricked protesters into walking onto Brooklyn Bridge so it could execute a meticulously planned mass arrest of hundreds of entirely peaceful protesters. Among the 400+ detainees were at least two young children, a photographer and a freelance journalist.

Gaza vista por sus niños (Dibujos censurados en Estados Unidos)

Según notificaciones de MECA: Berkeley, CA El Museo de Arte para Niños en Oakland (MOCHA) ha decidido cancelar una exposición de arte de los niños palestinos en la Franja de Gaza.

2011-10-07 06:55:56 / Fuente: Nikonecons.net
La Alianza de Oriente Medio para la Infancia (MECA), que fue asociado con MOCHA para presentar la exposición, fue informado de la decisión del presidente de la junta del museo en Jueves, 8 de septiembre 2011.
Durante varios meses, MECA y el museo habían estado trabajando juntos en la exposición, que se titula “Vista de un niño de Gaza”. MECA se ha enterado de que hubo un esfuerzo concertado por organizaciones pro-Israel en la bahía de San Francisco a la presión del Museo de revertir su decisión de desplegar el arte de los niños palestinos. Barbara Lubin, el Directora Ejecutiva de la MECA, expresó su consternación de que el museo decidiese censurar esta exposición en contradicción con su misión de “garantizar que las artes son una parte fundamental de la vida de los todos los niños”. “Entendemos muy bien la enorme presión de la que fue objeto el museo.
Pero, ¿Quién gana? El museo no gana. MECA no gana. La gente de la zona de la Bahía no gana. Nuestra libertad constitucional básica de la palabra pierde. Los niños de Gaza pierden “, dijo. “Los únicos ganadores aquí son los que gastan millones de dólares en censurar toda crítica a Israel y el silenciamiento de las voces de los niños que viven todos los días bajo asedio militar y la ocupación.”

After ten years of war, it's time for Americans to act decisively: we must end the wars and commit our resources to creating jobs and rebuilding the ramshackle infrastructure of our own country. As Eisenhower said: "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed."
