The nuclear plant disaster at Fukushima, Japan, has generated months of headlines around the world this year, but it was just last year that the massive oil spill caused by the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico was similarly in the news for months.

SlutWalk Comes to Austin

 On June 11  SlutWalk will come to the Texas Capitol. The rally will begin at noon on the south steps of the Capitol and the march will proceed down Congress Avenue. SlutWalk Austin is part of an international group of events held in order to draw attention to victim blaming culture and empower survivors of sexual assault.

SlutWalk began in Toronto in April as a community reaction to a Toronto police officer advising women to avoid sexual assault by not dressing like "sluts". The enough-is-enough outrage that created the Toronto event has resonated with communities the world over. Seventy-eight cities have held or will hold a SlutWalk this year, which speaks to the need for change not just in one Toronto police officer.  These events show that we all need to confront the attitudes about respect and violence perpetuated by our culture. Here in Austin, two people are raped or sexually assaulted every day.

Through subversive language, the event aims to draw attention to the absurd justifications for violence we endure in our society. For more information on SlutWalk Austin, please see their site.

As Afghan War Approaches Second Decade, Activists Organize October Anti-War Protest

 As Afghan War Approaches Second Decade, Activists Organize October Anti-War Protest

Interview with David Swanson, co-founder of AfterDowningStreet.org, conducted by Scott Harris
 
When President Obama announced his decision to deploy 30,000 additional U.S. troops to Afghanistan in December 2009, he also pledged to begin a withdrawal of those troops beginning in July 2011. The promise to wind down the war in Afghanistan was politically necessary, with a growing number of U.S. citizens no longer supportive of a war that will be entering its 11th year this October. But with July’s withdrawal date fast approaching, the White House is hinting that the withdrawal of U.S. troops may be larger than the anticipated token drawdown of 3,000 to 5,000 troops. How many American soldiers will come home in July is now being debated by the administration and the Pentagon.

Department of Justice Ends Investigation Into Austin Police Department

 Editors' note: This is reposted from the Austin Chronicle.  Links to radio and televison coverage are at the bottom of the article.

DOJ Closes Police Inquiry

APD needs to close 'gaps in use-of-force reports'

By Jordan Smith of the Austin Chronicle, Fri., June 3, 2011

The U.S. Department of Justice has officially ended its inquiry into the use-of-force practices of the Austin Police Department, which it began in 2007, concluding that it found "no reasonable cause to believe that APD has engaged in a pattern or practice that violated the Constitution or laws of the United States," according to a May 27 letter from the department to the city's legal department.

An inquiry into APD's practices was requested in 2004 by Nelson Linder of the Austin NAACP and Jim Harrington with the Texas Civil Rights Project, based on accusations of excessive use of force by police against minority residents, including the high-profile shooting deaths of Sophia King in 2002 and Jesse Lee Owens in 2003. The groups updated their complaint in 2005 to include the circumstances of the Midtown Live nightclub fire, which sparked APD's infamous "burn baby burn" fiasco. Then-Chief Stan Knee and then-City Manager Toby Futrell signed on to the request, saying the city welcomed the review. The DOJ told officials it would undertake the review in 2007. The announcement was made one day after the shooting death of Kevin Brown by APD Sgt. Michael Olsen; that incident was quickly added to the inquiry.

The DOJ in late 2008 made 160 recommendations to improve the department's policies and procedures, most of which have been implemented by APD – including changes to the use-of-force policy, changes in the way officers report uses of force, and changes to the department's intake, classification, and handling of citizen complaints about officers, which the DOJ called "needlessly complex and fraught with opportunities to apply subjective judgment."

In closing its inquiry, the DOJ's Jonathan Smith, chief of the Special Litigation Section, notes in a letter that "gaps in use-of-force reports and supervisory investigations, though not necessarily rising to the level of constitutional violations, should be reformed." (See the letter here.) First, the DOJ recommends that the APD "bring to fruition its planned, though not fully implemented" early intervention system, which is meant to identify officers who "demonstrate a tendency to violate APD." That system should be reassessed, Smith writes, to ensure that potential problem officers are flagged for "personnel action" such as training, counseling, or internal investigation. Second, Internal Affairs should be sure to "conduct investigations in an objective and probing manner," in keeping with the recommendations the DOJ made in 2008. Third, the department's use-of-force review process should "identify potential tactical or training issues" that could be "corrected to minimize uses of force." Finally, the DOJ recommends that the city's Office of the Police Monitor (about which the DOJ also made a host of recommendations in 2008) should provide "objective, public reports on the conduct of APD's internal affairs." While the police monitor's office has previously produced purely statistical reports – the number of complaints made to the office, for example – the DOJ recommends that APD "utilize OPM to produce timely reports not just on the number of internal affairs complaints ... but also to provide a qualitative analysis of the internal affairs system."

In a written statement, Harrington praised the process and encouraged APD to take seriously the DOJ's remaining recommendations. "Because of DOJ's investigation, APD has changed course, and APD now has a better and more professional police department," he wrote. "Credit belongs to DOJ's staff and to [Chief Art Acevedo] ... and his staff, who took advantage of the situation to work with DOJ to greatly improve APD's operation. APD's cooperation certainly is the reason that DOJ felt that it could now close its investigation and not take legal action against the department."

Indeed, the DOJ has been ramping up its official inquiries into police practices; it recently announced so-called "pattern-and-practice" inquiries into departments in several major cities – including Newark, N.J.; Seattle, Wash.; and Denver, on top of its aggressive inquiry into the New Orleans Police Department, where several officers are now facing criminal prosecution.

Run Off Election Early Voting Begins

Early voting for the Place 3 City Council seat run-off election begins on Monday June 6. The official Austin election report released on May 14, 2011 stated that 32,880 people voted in the city council election. In this election, 92.6% registered voters did not vote.

Though local elections do not have the same voter turn out as state or national elections, the impact that local officials have on the community can be more immediate. Unfortunately, voting can be neglected due to frustration and confusion about processes, hours and locations.

If you would like to vote but are not sure if you are registered, follow the following link to confirm your registration status using your name, driver's license or Voter Unique Identifier.

U.S. Senate Defeats Plan to Eliminate Billions of Dollars in Big Oil Tax Subsidies

 

Communique from the Communal Autonomous Council of San Juan Copala, Oaxaca, Mexico

 

June 2nd Communique from the Communal Autonomous Council of San Juan Copala, Oaxaca, Mexico

To the indigenous peoples and peoples of the world

To the honest, independent and alternative media

To the international, democratic, solidarity and revolutionary social organizations

To the struggles built from below and whose origin is to the left, committed to the emblematic changes to which we are all dedicated and are a fundamental part of changing the world.

To the women and men of this country who carry the world on their backs, the weight of a history plagued by injustice imposed by power.

To those who dream of a great homeland, free and without any more blood, with which the poorest always pay, we who have decided to march to liberate our peoples at the cost of our lives, so that tomorrow our history has a future.

Sisters and brothers:

Our history is not only like the mature fruit which falls from a tree when we became aware that is was time to walk together as a people, nor like the spring of our grandparents when times were good, or the times to plant and to see our lands full of life and our people walking without being afraid, our history is more than the branches which create shade in a patriarchal and dominating system, it is more than the trunk which is the unity of our peoples and their thousand-year old forms of organization which have always allowed us to sustain ourselves, it is the deep ancestral roots which teach us that we have to defend our culture in the face of invasions; we are the Triqui people, the inheritors of lightning, we come from the earth, we are one of the guardians of the history which we have lived, at many times facing colonization, the nation-state and wars of extermination.

Our land, as in all of our continent called America, has been filled with innocent blood, women, children, elders, youth and men who sought to live well; that has been sowed with the pain, rage and hate that condemns many innocents, honest leaders with an unquestionable human quality, martyrs of our struggle; like many indigenous peoples we have had to confront death, the destiny that many politicians and governments force upon us, the only way to survive was to defend ourselves, this political class created conflict amongst our families and brothers, fathers against children, to divide us and in this way to defeat our peoples and our resistances, trying to submit us and take from us our dignity and our rights, however they weren’t able to because we are in the struggle and we are alive.

Today, as they force us to mobilize in a caravan and they want to impose on us a destiny that is not ours, we have decided to renounce this path of death, we built the Autonomous Municipality of San Juan Copala and we reassert it in order to give our families and people an alternative way of life, those who contemptuously and radically call us violent, barbarians, are wrong, the violence came from those who sought to enslave us, to submit us and to seize our lands and territories, the political class who does not care about the lives it must claim in order to stay in power, and the political parties, representatives, senators, army and governors who all want to use our people as a political tool.

Therefore, today our intention to recover our community, the MARCH OF THE COLOR OF BLOOD is the cry of our peoples and the ¡ENOUGH! which we attentively hear and see being shouted by each of the struggles of women, men, organizations, peasants, workers and youth, towns such as Atenco, Cherán, the mountains of Guerrero, THE AUTONOMOUS MUNICIPALITIES IN CHIAPAS, among many, many more manifestations which arise every day to transform pain into hope. Therefore, the Communal Autonomous Council, which came about through the agreement of our towns as a way to create a consensus-based process that helps us make collective decisions in order to guarantee the security of these communities, has decided to place as a demand and a condition before the State the dismantling of the groups who attacked the caravan on April 27, 2010, where Bety and Jyri lost their lives.

The COMMUNAL AUTONOMOUS COUNCIL decided not to enter San Juan Copala and to postpone the return for a few days, given that the conditions of the State are not guarantees, this agreement among our communities responds to the danger that our brothers and sisters from our communities face, the criminal groups who caused so much damage to our movement continue to intimidate and threaten our brothers and sisters from different communities, for this reason the state government, aware of our intention to recover our town, let us know that the security conditions in order to enter to recover our land were not the best and they asked us for an acceptable amount of time with the only intention of avoiding the deaths of more of our compañeros and compañeras.

We therefore confide:

Our process of autonomy was born of the commitment to cease being an organization and to the bring together the Triqui communities and people tired of being used by the State only during elections, tired as well of this situation of those who enrich themselves at our expense and through the spilling of innocent blood seek to continue manipulating our pain, one of the reasons why they repress us with such cruelty for only wanting to be free and to create an autonomous municipality where we all make decisions for the good of our indigenous people.

The decision to return to San Juan Copala was made not because we are provocateurs as those who beg for peace by praying with bullets would have people believe, nor are we interested in displacing our Triqui nation from its ceremonial center, another lie which prepares the ground for an armed attack, we simply decided to recover what belongs to us because it is a legitimate right for our children and the inheritance from our parents and grandparents.

Similarly, we affirm that when justice is applied to a criminal, that is not a reason for violence to reemerge in our region, even when that person is a “social leader” as some like to see Rufino Juárez because it suites their interests, because it hides the truth and conceals his true face: Who is Rufino Juárez? Isn’t he the one who threatened and carried out the attack on the caravan, as well as attacks against our people: rapes, kidnappings and murders, like that of Bety and Jyri?

On the other hand, we make clear to those who accompany us who are not from the region, that no one makes decisions on behalf of our peoples, that the decisions of our movement, were made previously through the consultation of the bases of our COMMUNAL AUTONOMOUS COUNCIL. We will not make the same mistake twice, as those of us who at one time belonged to MULT, we are convinced that when one leads our people without deeply knowing its culture and history, what one obtains is a deep division which only generates rancor amongst our people, we therefore call on you to be consistent with us.

Similarly, we point out that those from the National Commission for the Development of Indigenous Peoples (CDI) sought to strengthen UBISORT because their interests are in line with the PRI and with those relationships they only seek to fill their coffers, which is why we demand the federal government keeps its hands out and detains once and for all the murderers of our compañeros Bety Cariño and Jyri Jaakkola. There exists the right to consultation, which so many acclaim, and no one came to us to ask our opinion, therefore we demand the immediate removal of Concepcion Rueda for wanting to generate more violence, we hold her responsible if that happens, conscience cannot be bought with resources.

We demand justice for Timoteo Alejandro and once and for all the solving of this crime, justice can’t just be for some, as such we demand the detention of the murderers of Teresa and Felicitas, those responsible are known, as such we ask the State to act against these murderers.

Finally, we want to say to those who at one time walked alongside us as compañeros: Isn’t defending Rufino Juárez an act of betrayal? Aren’t you the ones who are in the struggle because justice, democracy and freedom are your flags? Aren’t you part of the Other Campaign, to which our sister Bety Cariño belonged? You throw stones and then hide your hand.

We call on everyone, our sisters and brothers of Mexico and the world to stay attentive to our actions which we postponed, because we are going to Copala, our path is for a world in which many fit, we are the Triqui people who today have stopped complaining and decided to walk, we make a call to the peoples to accompany our path, transformations are not made with violence, but with will power and WE ARE GOING TO SAN JUAN COPALA.

We demand justice for our compañero, brother, friend and Triqui leader Timoteo Alejandro Ramirez and his wife!

We hold the Mexican state and governments responsible for any aggression against our compañeras and compañeros, we hold the organizations who call themselves “social” in the Triqui region responsible for any aggression in San Juan Copala!

Justice for the Triqui people!

Justice for Teresa and Felicitas!

Justice for Bety Cariño and Jyri Jaakkola!

JUSTICE FOR ALL OUR DEAD!

JUSTICE FOR OUR PEOPLES!

Never again a homeland without us!

Jail Antonio Cruz Garcia and his paramilitaries!

For the autonomy of the Triqui people!

Communal Autonomous Council

Will Democrats Stand and Fight or Surrender to GOP Plan to Dismantle Medicare?

 Will Democrats Stand and Fight or Surrender to GOP Plan to Dismantle Medicare?

Interview with Damon Silvers, policy director with the AFL-CIO, conducted by Scott Harris
 
When the Republican-controlled House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed Wisconsin GOP Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget proposal that would have dismantled Medicare and defunded Medicaid, many inside-the-beltway journalists and media pundits praised the legislation as bold, innovative and courageous. But when the public learned more details about the measure, which would transform Medicare from a program that pays the medical bills of senior citizens over 65 years of age into a voucher system that provides inadequate subsidies to purchase private insurance coverage, public sentiment quickly soured. Republican legislators who voted for the bill were soon confronted by angry constituents who were anxious that the government programs they value and depend on would soon disappear.

Workers Defense Project Wage Theft Bill Signed Into Law

 

Wage Theft Bill Signed into Law!
 
Stop Wage Theft!
WDP's Wage Theft Bill was signed by Governor Rick Perry and is now law! This bill makes it easier for police departments across Texas to arrest employers who don’t pay their workers, and closes an important loophole which allowed employers to avoid criminal theft of services charges by making a minimal payment to their workers. With the passage of this bill, thousands more workers will be able to recover their well-deserved wages!
