#www #WaveOfAction Worldwide Wave Launch Gatherings – The People REVOLT

#WaveOfAction 4-4-14 ~ 7-4-14 #Cookednews

Now that you’ve seen The People REVOLT in Tunisia, Turkey, Spain, Egypt, Brazil and the Ukraine, tell me what will happen on the streets

On April 4th, we will launch the first phase of the Worldwide Wave of Action by gathering at Zuccotti Park and former occupation sites throughout the world to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  At 6:05pm CT, the time of his assassination, we will host vigil ceremonies and resurrect his spirit of nonviolent direct action.

People with opinions across the political spectrum are invited to unite and find common ground against corruption. We will overcome divide and conquer propaganda by forming communities of support and compassion. Together we will fight for freedom and begin engaging in a relentless campaign of nonviolent civil disobedience. People will pledge to take part in whatever tactics they are interested in throughout a sustained three-month cycle.  Here’s a basic list of tactics…

> Mass gatherings, demonstrations;
> Marches, parades;
> Flash mobs, swarms;
> Shutdown harmful corporate and governmental operations;
> Worker Strikes;
> Hunger strikes;
> Sit-ins;
> Strategic defaults, debt strikes;
> Foreclosure prevention;
> Boycotting corrupt corporations;
> Move your money out of the big banks and the stock market;
> Use alternative currencies and economic systems;
> Cancel your cable television and support independent media;
> Use independent online tools that don’t sell your info / protect privacy;
> Online civil disobedience, Anonymous operations;
> Leak information on corruption;
> Use alternative energy;
> Build urban and hydroponic farms, or get your food from them;
> Support local businesses;
> Join local community organizations;
> Take part in food banks and help develop community support systems;
> Start or join intentional and autonomous communities;
> Experiment with new governing systems, Liquid Democracy;
> Host teach-ins;
> Organize socially conscious events;
> Make conscious media;
> Guerrilla postering, messages on money;
> Help inspiring groups and organizations spread their message;
> Random acts of kindness and compassion;
> Mass meditations, prayer sessions and spiritual actions.

You know what you can do to play a part. Do whatever you feel inspired to do. Amplify what you are already doing. Think about what you are willing to do to be the change we urgently need to see in the world, and then do it.

We look forward to seeing you in action!

Media freedom call: join the global day of action for press freedoms around the world

#journalismisnotacrime #freeAJstaff #PressFreedom #Cookednews

Join the global day of action for press freedoms, when rallies will be held around the world 

Three Al Jazeera English journalists have been imprisoned in Egypt since 29th December 2013.

They have suffered harsh conditions, solitary confinement, denied medical treatment and are now on trial for charges related to terrorism, along with six other foreign journalists being tried in absentia.

Peter Greste, Mohammed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, who were simply doing their jobs, are being tried in Cairo, charged with terrorism-related offences and “spreading false news“.

Another Al Jazeera Arabic reporter, Abdullah Al-Shami, has been in prison since August 14 and has been on hunger strike for more than 30 days.

And they are not the only press to be incarcerated by the Egyptian authorities.

Journalists are not terrorists. They risk their lives to shed light on abuse, suffering and injustice around the world. They are our eyes and ears, as well as our voices. An attack journalism is an attack on everyone who values the freedom to speak their minds and know the truth.

Please join the world’s press in a Global Day of Action on Thursday 27th February with peaceful demonstrations, silent protests and individual images that will send a message to Egypt and the world: if you silence the press, you silence us all.

Adidas against sexual tourism: it’s the request of Brazilian Tourism Board for the next Wold Cup 2014

#NotBuyingIt #Cookednews

How very original. Adidas released–and has now pulled–these two new t-shirts to promote the upcoming World Cup in Brazil. Get it? Because Brazilian women are oh-so-sexy and obviously exist for your viewing pleasure. In fact, you can go ahead and think of the entire country as–literally–one big piece of ass.

And it’s not just that these tees play on sexist, racist stereotypes of exotic Latina women. ‘Looking to score?’ is not just a hypothetical play on words here. While there’s little evidence to support the oft-repeated myth that sex trafficking increases around large sporting events, sex tourism is popular in Brazil and there are concerns that the flood of tourist that the World Cup attracts will exacerbate the problem of child sex trafficking in the country. The head of the Brazilian Tourism Board Flávio Dino was not pleased. ‘We don’t accept that the World Cup be used for illegal practices, like so-called sexual tourism,’ he told O Globo. ‘We ask that Adidas put a stop to the sale of these products.’

Thankfully, they promptly did.

(H/t @Kelleyk43Maya Dusenbery is an Executive Director of Feministing.

Adidas said the shirts would not be sold anymore, adding in a statement that they were from a limited edition that was only on sale in the United States.

Partito il 28 marzo scorso (con iscrizioni ancora aperte) il Premio Terna per l’arte contemporanea nelle passate stagioni ha raccolto la partecipazione di oltre 9.000 artisti da tutta Italia e dall’estero. Per l’edizione 2012 presenta molte novità: una nuova terna curatoriale, interventi sul territorio con un progetto site specific su tralicci, apertura del bando anche alle installazioni, un premio per il più giovane tra i talenti under 23, la connessione con Mosca per la chiusura dell’anno della cultura italiana in Russia, la scelta di una partnership con la musica dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.

Il sito web diventa una galleria espositiva in 3D da allestire, anche settimanalmente, con nuove opere e informazioni, inclusi i costi dei propri lavori. In un mercato in cui gli artisti si affidano più a internet che alle mostre per farsi conoscere, il Premio Terna fornisce uno strumento concreto di relazione con il pubblico.

Per Terna 04 Luigi Roth, Presidente di Terna e il Ministro per i Beni e le Attività Culturali, Lorenzo Ornaghi, hanno firmato il rinnovo del Protocollo d’Intesa triennale finalizzato alla promozione e alla valorizzazione dell’arte contemporanea italiana con l’obiettivo di far emergere l’eccellenza e la creatività degli artisti, con attenzione ai giovani. Un grosso sostegno all’arte contemporanea in un periodo in cui il settore culturale e artistico italiano ha bisogno di partnership tra operatori pubblici e privati per condividere l’impegno nella crescita del Paese.

Il nuovo concorso, che terminerà il 1 ottobre, conferma l’accesso democratico con iscrizione libera e gratuita per tutti gli artisti sopra e sotto i 35 anni (Megawatt e Gigawatt) e la categoria dedicata agli artisti di fama (Terawatt) alla quale si accede solo per invito, rinnovata nei contenuti. Confermato anche il premio online assegnato dal pubblico via web e la categoria Connectivity per gli internazionali.

L’edizione 2012 ruota attorno ad un tema sfidante e di stretta attualità Dentro e Fuori Luogo. Senza Rete. Il Territorio per l’Arte: invita a una riflessione sul concetto di Territorio e Territorialità intesi come relazione con luoghi e spazi fisici, ma anche come dimensione introspettiva, senso di appartenenza, di inclusione o esclusione, apertura o confine delle relazioni con gli altri. Il territorio diventa luogo che ospita la creatività e diventa esso stesso motore di creatività. Senza Rete è l’invito ad indagare assetti anche inediti delle relazioni con gli altri e con il territorio, assetti non predeterminati. Rete, senza la quale nemmeno Terna esisterebbe. Rete, l’assenza della quale consente a Terna di costruire connessioni: un riferimento quindi chiaro, come sempre per i titoli del Premio, alla trasmissione di energia. All’artista, la libertà di costruire il territorio per l’arte e/o immaginare l’arte per il territorio.
