Reject Police Brutality in Blacktown - snap action

Jura - Thu, 21/11/2013 - 12:26am
Date and Time: Sun, 24/11/2013 - 7:00pm to 9:00pmLocation: 

Blacktown Police Station - meet at the train station and march to the police station

Description: 

'When a HSC student is tasered while handcuffed, barely conscious and surrounded by six officers, and the Police issue a statement that such taser use falls within guidelines you know that something is seriously wrong.

Sadly, this isn't the first case of police harassment against young people with little to no justifiable cause, but it ought to be the last.

Join us at Blacktown Station at 7:00 this coming Sunday for a march to the Police Station, and a peaceful demonstration denouncing violent crimes perpetrated by those who are supposed to protect the peace.'

Fighting for housing and workplace justice using solidarity networks

Jura - Tue, 19/11/2013 - 2:47am
Date and Time: Wed, 11/12/2013 - 6:00pm to 8:00pmDescription: Presentation by members of the Seattle Solidarity Network (USA)  

Ever been ripped off or abused by a boss or landlord and wanted to do something about it? Come to this event to learn a bit more about Solidarity Networks. There will be a presentation by former and current members of the Seattle Solidarity Network ('SeaSol'), followed by a discussion about attempts to organise using a Solidarity Network model in Sydney.

SeaSol is an all-volunteer, mutual aid group that organises direct action campaigns to make bosses, landlords and other authority figures 'pay what they owe.' The goal is to support fellow workers' strikes and struggles, build solidarity, and organise to deal with specific job, housing, and other problems caused by the greed of the rich and powerful. Come hear about two members personal experiences, views and lessons. 

Sydney Solidarity Network ('SydSol') is a new  all-volunteer group of workers, students and unemployed people in Sydney. We have formed this network to respond to problems people like us face when bosses treat us unfairly or take advantage of us. We hope to solve these issues ourselves using solidarity - meaning that we stand up for each other and have each other’s backs. We believe that our solidarity network can be a tool to fight against many of the problems that we face in our everyday lives.


MORE ABOUT SEASOL:

"SeaSol is a volunteer network of working people who believe in standing up for our rights. Our goal is to support our fellow workers' strikes and struggles, build solidarity, and organize to deal with specific job, housing, and other problems caused by the greed of the rich and powerful.  We see our efforts as helping to build a powerful and democratic working class movement.  One day we will be strong enough to  take full control over our lives.

A few examples of what we do.

➢ Bert got his rental deposit stolen. He and a group of Solidarity Network supporters visited the property manager at her home one morning, and within a few days she paid up.

➢ Jorge was owed $892 of wages, and the boss adamantly refused to pay. Jorge and a group of other workers visited the boss’s house, then leafleted the boss's church twice on Sunday mornings. After that, the boss agreed to pay Jorge every cent.

➢ Stephanie, Yvette and other long-term motel residents demanded relocation assistance when they were ordered out of their homes at short notice. Organized with the Solidarity Network, motel tenants and  supporters defied eviction threats, visited the landlords’ neighborhood and launched an online and on-the-streets boycott campaign. Within a  month the landlords met all our demands, paying 3-months’ rent per  household to all residents who got involved.

Guest talk: Schools for Chiapas

Jura - Sun, 13/10/2013 - 1:49am
Date and Time: Sun, 03/11/2013 - 3:00pm to 6:00pmDescription: 

"Ours is not a message of resignation.
It is not one of war, death, or destruction.
Our message is one of struggle and resistance."


Musica De Fuego in association with Schools for Chiapas / Escuelas para Chiapas present "An Evening with Peter Brown" at two Inner West venues.....

1. Jura Books - Sunday 3rd November @ 3pm
440 Parramatta Road, Petersham

2. The Red Rattler Theatre - Wed 13th November 7.30pm
6 Faversham Street Marrickville

Schools for Chiapas founding member Peter Brown is coming to Sydney, armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience of working with the Zapatista communities of Chiapas, Mexico since their uprising in 1994. He is coming to Australia to garner support for Zapatista education including schools, ecological agriculture, heath, and producers' cooperatives.

Brown's immersion in and involvement with the Zapatista movement has allowed him to bear witness to incredible stories of resistance. Some inspirational developments are currently occurring in Chiapas, as the Zapatistas cement their autonomous existence within the international community. This is a rare opportunity to hear about the Zapatista struggle and liberation throughout the last two decades from a man who has been involved with the movement from a grassroots level for many years.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT PETER BROWN and his work in Chiapas;

Entry to both nights is by donation to Schools for Chiapas. All funds will go directly to the Zapatista communities in resistance in Chiapas, Mexico.

Gracias, compas! See you at one of these venues for this rare opportunity to hear, discuss and ask questions about what is happening with our hermanos y hermanas in Chiapas :)

Red & Black Forum: Brian Martin on Participatory Alternatives to Electoral Democracy

Jura - Thu, 10/10/2013 - 10:01am
Date and Time: Sun, 15/12/2013 - 2:00pm to 4:00pmDescription: 

Election campaigns and voting allow people to participate in politics, but only to a very limited extent. Various participatory options exist, including referenda, self-managing collectives, consensus decision-making, small-scale government units, and randomly selected decision-makers. Such options can be assessed using various criteria including participation, egalitarianism, empowerment, tyranny-resistance and deliberation. We need to consider strategies to promote a variety of participatory alternatives, paying special attention to ones that can be used as part of day-to-day practice.

 

Brian Martin is Professor of Social Sciences at the University of Wollongong, author of many books, and a long-time activist. Brian will talk for 30 minutes, then there will be open discussion.

For those who are interested, there is interesting material on Brian's website: http://www.bmartin.cc/index.html
 
You may like to read the following (on the Articles page of the Publications section):

"Reform -- when is it worthwhile?"
"Theory for activists"

Both of these articles have been previously published in anarchist journals.

Also, in the Schweik Action Wollongong section of the site, the first project mentioned: "Behind the activism" looks very practical.

Movie: Patu! - 4pm sharp!

Jura - Tue, 08/10/2013 - 6:52am
Date and Time: Sun, 24/11/2013 - 4:00pm to 6:00pmDescription: 

We are starting at 4pm sharp, so that those who want to, can go to the rally in Blacktown afterwards. Merata Mita’s classic 1983 Patu! is an amazing and inspiring documentary film. It is a record of the mass direct action that took place in Aotearoa New Zealand in 1981, in protest against a South African rugby tour and the apartheid it represented.

Patu! captures a landmark moment in both direct action mobilisations and activist film-making. The director was refused funding and the film itself was refused screenings, but it received widespread acclaim at several international film festivals.

How to Make Trouble and Influence People

Jura - Sun, 29/09/2013 - 8:50am
Jura is excited to stock the second edition of How to Make Trouble and Influence People - a brilliant book on Australia's radical past. Copies available for $35. Mail order available - just email us.  
  About the book:

This book reveals Australia’s radical past through more than 500 tales of Indigenous resistance, convict revolts and escapes, picket line hijinks, student occupations, creative direct action, street art, media pranks, urban interventions, squatting, blockades, banner drops, guerilla theatre, and billboard liberation. Twelve key Australian activists and pranksters are interviewed regarding their opposition to racism, nuclear power, war, economic exploitation, and religious conservatism via humour and creativity. Featuring more than 300 spectacular images How to Make Trouble and Influence People has been published in a second edition by PM Press. As this edition will mainly be distributed to audiences outside of Australia all of the listings from the first edition have been put in chronological order and introductions added for key periods in Australian history. It also features an additional 30 pages of new material.

Praise for the book:

“I noticed clear back on my first visit in ’83 that radical Aussies fighting back seem to be far more tenacious and creative than most Americans—Roxby Downs, that damned Franklin dam in Tasmania, Operation Titstorm, etc. A far better way to heat up the planet than your lovely mining companies. So keep up the good work! A prank a day keeps the dog leash away.”
—Jello Biafra

“A fascinating recovery of Australia’s neglected past and a worthy inspiration to today’s would-be troublemakers.”
—Sean Scalmer, author of Dissent Events: Protest, The Media and the Political Gimmick in Australia

“If you’ve ever thought of speaking out about an issue or have idly wondered what you could do to make the world a better place, this is the book for you! Fascinating interviews, quirky historical snippets and stunning photos chronicling all the Australians who have made a difference and who have done so with courage, audacity and a lot of humour! Keep it on your desk at work for all those moments when you need some inspiration, a bit of hope or just a good laugh.”
—Jill Sparrow, co-author Radical Melbourne 1 & 2

“Fascinating interviews with Australia’s best troublemakers make for a riotous scrapbook covering our radical history of revolts and resistance.”
—Rachel Power, Australian Education Union News

“McIntyre has amassed hundreds of tales alongside dramatic photographs in what is unashamedly a songbook for Australia’s future culture-jammers and mischief makers.”
—Katherine Wilson, The Age

Another ATM damaged

Kulon Progo Solidarity [melb] - Sat, 08/10/2011 - 8:50am
An ATM in Jogjakarta belonging to the Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) was set on fire on October 7. Police are investigating. According to reports, a message was left at the scene.  A rough English translation follows:

State-corporation-police-military are the real terrorists. “Social insurgency will always continue [as] the sun continues to shine”.

This time we tell you that what we have done is the culmination of our anxiety and anger towards the system.

The very system that worships money, the system that disturbs society with television, so for them to buy things they don’t need so they will continue to work like machines.

The system that forces us and others in society to lose the control of our own life. The system that gives advantage to the bourgeois, the businessmen and the state bureaucrats who have become their allies.

To us, this is not the time to be silent, not the time to watch the television and say that “everything is okay”.

For every oppressions in West Papua. For every oppressions in Kulonprogo. For every historical oppressions in Aceh. For every oppressions in Wera, Bima. For every forced evictions and land grabs in Takalar and Pandan Raya in Makassar.

For every oppressions against our friends who struggle. For Tukijo and other social combatants behind the bars just because they are fighting for their rights. For every concession [sic] in the forest which will destroy the bio diversity in the name of money and business!

And for every prisons that must be burned down flattened to the ground! So long as the state and capitalism remain, THERE WILL BE NO PEACE BETWEEN THOSE WHO HAVE AND THOSE WHO HAVE NOT.

Attacks against financial centres: ATM, banks, corporate buildings are important targets [sic], because they are collaborators that cause the suffering on earth. This is not terrorism because we do not advocate for attack against people.

Terorrism is war between states. Terrorism is [when] rice and foodstuff in your kitchen deplete. Terrorism is uniformed assholes who carry their guns everywhere. Terrorism is the slaughter of the have nots.

So we say: enough! And this is also for you! Those combatants who never give up in their struggle out there, even if you have to be prisoned because of your belief in freedom: Conspiracy cell of fire (Greece), Chile combatants: Tortuga! Lives on! Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Thomas Meyer Falk (Germany) Polikarpus Georgiadis, Revolutionary Straggle! [sic] Respect to combatants from Manado, Makassar and Bandung, you are the inspiration among the helplessness of society and their uncertain life.

September/October 2011 Update

Kulon Progo Solidarity [melb] - Tue, 04/10/2011 - 10:12am

stolen from slackbastard blog

On September 8, 2011, [Indo Mines Ltd] announced that it had “successfully manufactured the first iron ingots” from Kulon Progo. The company also claims that “URS Australia have completed an Initial Environmental and Social Scoping Study that identified no unmanageable community or environmental issues with the development of the Project”, although local farmers–especially members of the PPLP-KP (Paguyuban Petani Lahan Pantai Kulon Progo/Coastal Farmers Association of Kulon Progo)–beg to differ.

Note that members of the local Indonesian ruling elite have significant investments in the project, and critics have been jailed for speaking out against it. In its report ‘Turning Critics into Criminals: The Human Rights Consequences of Criminal Defamation Law in Indonesia’ [PDF], Human Rights Watch notes that “Tukijo, a farmer in Kulon Progo regency of Yogyakarta, was convicted of criminal defamation in January 2010 for asking the head of his sub-district for information about the results of a land assessment”; similar proceedings have been used against other critics in an attempt to intimidate opposition to the project. In May Day of this year, Tukijo was again arrested/kidnapped by police. As I write:

Hunger Strike Continues for Third Day Over Tukijo Arrest
Hangga Brata
Jakarta Globe
September 23, 2011

Six activists camped outside the Yogyakarta provincial legislature marked the third day of their hunger strike on Friday in protest against the detention of Tukijo, a farmer arrested for opposing an iron mine in Kulon Progo in Yogyakarta.

Agung, the strike coordinator, said the mine operated jointly by Australia’s Indo Mines and Jogja Magasa Mining, a local outfit, would deprive farmers in four subdistricts of vast swaths of farmland.

“The mine will reduce the area of rice paddies by 72 percent from the current 4,005 hectares,” he said. “Hundreds or even thousands of farm workers will be rendered jobless.”

He added that more than 21,000 smallholders stood to lose their land if the government allowed the mining operation to expand.

He also called for the immediate release of Tukijo, who was reportedly kidnapped by police while working in his fields in May and since sentenced to three years in prison for disorderly conduct following his vocal opposition to the mine.

“This hunger strike is a real action to support Tukijo and the Kulonprogo people in rejecting the mine,” Agung said…

A Tale of Sand and Those Who Feed From It – Kulon Progo Info Night

Kulon Progo Solidarity [melb] - Fri, 23/09/2011 - 6:54am

WHEN : 6:30pm–9:30pm, Wednesday, September 28th, 2011
WHERE : 62 St Georges Rd, Northcote (Melbourne, Australia)

**6.30pm for 7:00pm films**

Thousands of farmers across the communities of Kulon Progo, Central Java, Indonesia, are fighting for their land and very survival.

A joint Australian-Indonesian consortium is seeking to mine iron-ore, and with a pilot project running and the full backing of the state they look set to go ahead.

The people of Kulon Progo are calling for global solidarity in their struggle against the mining and dispossession, and for self determination. But they especially call on us in Australia to take action to stop Australian involvement in the project.

For generations oppressed by colonial occupiers and impoverished by the very land they live on, the communities of Kulon Progo have turned marginal coastline into a farming success story. Something they describe as a blueprint for communities across Indonesia.

Come find out about one of the most amazing untold stories of community agriculture, grass-roots organising, and the fight for land rights and self determination.

ATM destroyed in Bandung, West Java.

On June 30, 2011, an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) was destroyed in Bandung, West Java. The attack follows similar incidents in March and April in North and South Sulawesi. The bank targeted (BNI), and the banking system generally, play a key role in financing the destruction of the lands and farming communities of Kulon Progo [...]
