Venice Drum Circle, a public gathering in a public space

‪#‎WaveOfAction‬ ‪#‎WorldWideWaveLA‬ ‪#‎www‬ #Cookednews

No one but the most addled hippie really likes a drum circle, but only the war-like LAPD could possibly see one as any kind of threat. Hundreds of people assemble every Sunday by the Venice boardwalk for the Venice Drum Circle, a public gathering in a public space that rarely if ever results in any reports of bad behavior, except when the LAPD shows up to cause trouble for no real reason. (Even an LAPD officer describes the drum circle as a “peaceful occurrence.”) But for the past three weeks the LAPD has attempted to break up the peaceful gatherings once the sun has set, because them’s the rules, and the drummers have refused, because they’ve got a good groove going or whatever. So the LAPD has gone into full riot response. On a drum circle.

Last night, between 400 and 500 people were again causing no trouble at all when the LAPD came in to shut them down; when most people stayed, “an airship and multiple LAPD units executed a skirmish line [to] the push the crowd north,” according to Venice 311. A few people threw things, so they “called for a specialized unit from the Metro division which includes SWAT and mounted units for assistance,” which they had to cancel eventually because the crowd was like “whatever” after just 25 minutes. Everyone ended up dispersing pretty easily; one person who rushed the police line and another who “refused to move,” according to KTLA, were arrested.

One Venetian tweeted last night“more cops tonight than I’ve seen since the riots,” but apparently no measure is too out of proportion to the horrible scourge of hippies grooving to some jams on our beaches. This recent crackdown probably doesn’t have anything to do with the changing (richer, techier) face of Venice, does it.

Wed 19th March: Everything is Connected / Climate Revolution! (from Vivienne Westwood’s diary)

#climaterevolution #viviennewestwood #cookednews.

‘The fight against fracking is the most important battle the British people will ever fight! It is the 1st battle in the war against climate change’  (Posted on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 by Vivienne)

Our Big Day! The Fracked Future Carnival. Climate Revolution and Friends of the Earth, Frack Off London, Ecocide, Fuel Poverty Action, Reclaim the Power, the rest were community groups (Frack free Somerset, Britain & Ireland Frack Free, Resident Action on Fylde Fracking, East Kent Against Fracking, Trillion Fund).

Scheduled for today so we can protest the conference of Conspirators, those business and government officials who are meeting to force fracking through against the public interest and before the public have been warned of the danger.

Officials who have their head in a box and are prepared to destroy the world for profit.

We know they have re-located their conference for fear of us and we know where it is.

We will stick to our original plan: meet at our Battersea studio, march over the bridge to the King’s Rd, join fellow protestors at Knightsbridge tube then move to the original location of the conference, a stone’s throw away at Jumeira Hotel. We will give our speeches outside and then go to the secret location.

Battersea. We were ready. I had given all our workmates the day off. Cindy the youngest member of Climate Revolution had done a great job mustering the troops and organizing our students to make plaquards. Others who joined us were in carnival mood, dressed as zombies and ghouls.

I hadn’t wanted a carnival. It’s a matter of life and death and I didn’t wear my warpaint. We want to attract “ordinary people” and by that we mean people who aren’t normally political. But our activist colleagues were right we needed the Carnival. We were only expecting up to 500 people and that’s how it turned out. It was a week day, also Budget Day. Did the conspirators plan that?- don’t underestimate their fear of the public. John Sauven, head of Greenpeace couldn’t come because he was dealing with press on the budget. And what about students? Simon, a student activist friend should have been organizing but he didn’t even show up: because he’s doing his exams. Come on !

We looked great. There was lots of press. I was asked to lead the procession. I bowed and put my hands together in prayer, as you would before a battle. Then off we were!

People in King’s Rd hailed us in support and Cindy shouted out, keeping us all together because of having to stop for traffic. I talked to some of my friends as we marched along. At the Jumeirah Hotel we met Rhythm of Resistance, a samba band and campaigner Nigel with his demo/disco bus. In front of the hotel was a little square where we gave our speeches and thanked the fighters in the anti-fracking camps. Vanessa Vine From Balcombe is an inspiring speaker and full of powerful information. She’s been fighting fracking for 3 years and is just back from America. The queen of it all was scientist Tisha who was responsible for much of the organization and acted as a master of ceremonies –the prettiest ghoule you ever saw but she stays anonymous so you can’t see a photo of her. Then some of us got on Nigel’s bus and went to the secret location near to Bunyon Fields near Old St.

When we got near I looked out the window and saw another demonstration walking down the main road and they looked really interesting, lots of them, then I read the plaquards and realized it was us, the others had come on the tube. (They had a good time explaining to people what we are about – life and death, yeah!) We met our mole who had been inside the conference so we are informed of the conspirator’s agenda. See their confidential presentation www.talkfracking.org.  The secret location was Armoury House on City Rd.

The samba band was really important – lots of drumming outside the gates. The press asked me,

“How do you feel that the pro-frackers have come here to escape you, protected by the army?”

You sometimes worry that you’re so small against the enormous power of the conspiracy to destroy – press, politics, business, banks – and what perhaps only seems to be the acquiescence of the general public. It is heartening to read those articles of mutual support in the fight, from journalists of the standard press, especially the Guardian and those on the Internet and of course the support of all the NGO’s and sometimes great groups of people. At our demo someone gave out flyers for the Green Party, a great group with whom I entirely agree. They start by condemning austerity. If all the world would put their financial programme into practise we could save the earth and economic collapse.

It’s so important to demonstrate for your beliefs.   We will win because we have to.

ONYX releasing new album in 2014 #WAKEDAFUCUP

#WAKEDAFUCUP #cookednews

Exclusive: Onyx explain their global view of Hip Hop, working with Snowgoons and beating Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ at the 1993 ‘Soul Train Awards.’ (‘Wakedafucup’ will be the group’s eighth album)

#WAKEDAFUCUP available on iTunes worldwide March.18.2014

Talk of the late Christopher Wallace is the jumping off point for a list of what Fredro refers to as fallen soldiers. Relationships with the likes of Jam Master Jay, Tupac Shakur and group members X-1 and Big DS pepper the conversation. If Nas’ infamous line about sleep being the cousin of death is any indication, that at least partially explains why Fredro and Sticky have been so charged for the last 20-plus years. In an industry that often caters to and rewards being mentally comatose, sometimes a well-executed scream is the best option…even at 7:00 a.m.

With aggressive tracks such as the iconic ‘Slam‘ or their latest track, ‘Wakedafucup,’ it’s easy to fall into the trap of assuming Onyx simply reserves their high energy level for the recording booth. That would be an incorrect assumption. When Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz call from Samara, Russia at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time—due to the 12-hour time difference between Los Angeles and Samara—the pair are just as amped up as they sound on wax.

Sticky Fingaz yells, “Wake the fuck up!” at least twice. Maybe it’s in jest, given the early interview time, or maybe he’s dead serious in regards to how Onyx feel about Hip Hop. Either way, he and Fredro feed off of one another’s energy. This is especially true when discussing their upcoming Wakedafucupalbum, which was produced entirely by the Snowgoons.

‘I think this Wakedafucup album with these niggas from Germany is gonna set the fuse off for the New York sound again,’ Fredro explains. ‘You got other niggas coming out representing that New York sound, and this is gonna be the start of it. That’s why we’re dropping it on March 9, which is the anniversary of Biggie’s death…

International day against Police Brutality

Day Against Police Brutality March 15, 2014 in the World

From Fullerton to Durham, the police continue their oppression and walk away with impunity. We must shatter the illusion of complacency. They protect a system of that destroys our earth and the animals that walk it, they are the wall between the people and justice. On the 15th of March, join us in the streets, show Portland we aren’t ready to aquiesce. Meet at Colonel Summers park(20th and Belmont), We meet a 8pm and march at 9. Bring banners, fireworks, friends, and whatever you think is appropriate. We will respect each other, in whatever tactics folks choose to engage in. We encourage people to help with postering, telling friends, banner drops, making leaflets, just articulating your hatred for the cops. Let’s bring some more people out this time!!FTP!

International Day Against Police Brutality is observed on March 15, 2014. It first began in 1997 as an initiative of the Montreal based Collective Opposed to Police Brutality and the Black Flag group in Switzerland. Acceptance of March 15 as a focal day of solidarity against police brutality varies from one place to another.

In the United States, the October 22 Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation, a group mounted by the RCP, has succeeded in building support for October 22 (also known as O22) as National Anti Police Brutality Day since 1995

Event date: Saturday, March 15, 2014 – 21 to Sunday, March 16, 2014 – 12 (anarchistnews dot org)

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.

Against airport Notre-Dame-Des-Landes: police attack 20,000 french citizens

Against Airport Notre-Dame-Des-Landes #Cookednews

The event attended by ten’s of thousands of French citizens against the airport Notre-Dame-des-Landes escalated Saturday afternoon in the city center of Nantes when Police blockaded the progression of the march and attacked with charges to the people protesting. Many citizens were wounded by tear gas and rubber bullets. Participants responded with fired projectiles – bottles, cans, steel balls, flares – towards the police who charged repeatedly.

About 20,000 people demonstrated in the city center of Nantes to protest against the construction of the new airport of Our Lady of Landes. Des violent clashes took place at the end of the event between violent groups and CRS. (Franck Dubray)

‘This is tens of thousands,’ assured Julien Durand, spokesman for the ACIPA, the main opposition group to the airport project, while refusing to give a precise figure.

According to him, the participation is equivalent to the previous rallies, such as in November 2012 which according to the organizers had expected 40,000 people (13,000 according to police).

In the late afternoon, the city center of Nantes showed scenes of devastation. People took out frustration from being ignored for years and beaten down when they speak out by ransacking a police station, an agency of Vinci (dealer airport project) group, but also broke several storefronts, any agency of Nantes transport or agency Nouvelles Frontières. At least two construction equipment vehicles and a barricade were also burned.

Objects were thrown at the SNCF catenary to block the movement of trains one source said. As for police, they made use of a large amount of tear gas, stun grenades and water cannons.

Protesters moved away blinded by tear gas while several hundred others continued to face the police, referring new projectiles bottles, or even own grenades forces.

‘No matter what tell the prefecture, for all of you it is a great success,’ provided at the end of the event Julien Durand.

‘An unnecessary and expensive project’
The demonstration had started in a friendly atmosphere. ‘No thank you Ayraultport’, ‘No to Ayrault pork‘, ‘Ayrault also emerges Vinci’, ‘Ni or airport metropolis, the city is ours’ we heard in the procession.

‘The mobilization is great here. We are here to show our determination to abandon this useless and expensive at this time of shortage project,’ said AFP Eva Joly MEP EELV.

Given the anti-capitalist component of the event and clashes that have marked previous events, the prefecture on Friday adopted a modification of the route so that it avoids the downtown core.

The event is organized two months after the publication of prefectural ordinances authorizing the start of pre-construction of the airport. Appeals were filed against these orders but do not have suspensive effect.However, work has still not started.

The inauguration of the future Grand Ouest Airport, originally scheduled for 2017, is now considered only ‘2019 or 2020’ by supporters of the transfer. According to an Ifop poll published Saturday, a majority of French (56%) are opposed to the future airport, 24% being positive and 20% were undecided.

This survey was conducted on behalf of Acting for the environment, Attac and ACIPA, the leading association of opponents to the project. The project of public utility in 2008, is justified by its supporters, PS as the UMP, including the risk of saturation of the current airport Nantes Atlantique.

An Ukrainian alpine skier and her staff boycott Sochi 2014

Ukrainian alpine skier Bogdana Matsotska and her father said they will not represent their national team in the Sochi Winter Games any longer because of the deaths on EuroMaidan #Cookednews

Ukrainian Olympic alpine skier Bohdana Matsotska and her father posted a message on Facebook stating that they no longer will represent their nation’s team in the Sochi Winter Games over the bloody events on EuroMaidan and blamed President Viktor Yanukovych for bloodshed.

Oleg Matsotskyy of Kosiv, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, Bogdana Matsotska’s father and trainer, said the two are ‘extremely angry at President Viktor Yanukovych’s latest actions who instead of resolving the conflict through negotiations (which we had hoped he would when we left for Sochi), has drenched the last hopes of the nation in blood.

‘In solidarity with the fighters on the barricades of the Maidan, and as a protest against the criminal actions made towards the protesters, the irresponsibility of the president and his lackey government, we refuse further performance at the Olympic Games in Sochi 2014.’

Earlier, Ukraine Olympic Committee head Serhiy Bubka told Channel 5 in Sochi that he was ‘shocked’ to hear of the Feb. 18 deaths after protesters clashed with police.

He conveyed his condolences to the bereaved families and called on both sides ‘to return to the discussion table to preserve our wonderful country and nation, as well as peace on our land. The events (on EuroMaidan) troubles and concerns us all.’ (Kyiv Post editor Mark Rachkevych can be reached atrachkevych@kyivpost.com)

EU foreign ministers called an emergency meeting on Ukraine for Thursday (today, 20 February, in Brussels) and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said the 28-nation bloc was set to impose sanctions against those blamed for the bloodshed.

One Billion Rising: 48 hours of global activism!

VDAY2014 #cookednews

As February 14th dawns across the world, ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE begins 48 hours of global activism designed to focus the world’s attention on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence, and ending the rampant impunity that prevails globally. This day of action is part of a two year long activist led campaign highlighting the work of thousands of groups on the ground, deepening the connection of injustices, escalating pressure on government and media through constant activity and invigorating local and national movements through global solidarity and dancing.

For 48 hours as 14 February rolls across the globe, one billion women, men, and youth from 200 countries will peacefully gather outside places where they are entitled to justice – court houses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not – to shine a spotlight on injustice and to demand an end to violence against women and girls.

FOLLOW THE GLOBAL CAMPAIGN

For months, activists planning One Billion Rising for Justice events have used media, social platforms and the Internet to connect to one another and on Friday, they will continue to do so on a global scale like never ensuring their personal visions of justice heard.
