Filipina Senator Opposes Arroyo State Terrrorism & U.S. Imperialism

12-07-2007 01:37

Senator Madrigal with NDF representatives Louie Jalandoni and Jose Maria Sison
Of distinguished progressive lineage, Senator Jamby Madrigal of the Philippines takes a principled stand critical of the Arroyo regime's bloody and brutal repression of Filipinos backed by the Bush neocons. This article provides the historical context for the Philippine crisis and Senator Madrigal's views on U.S. imperialism in the neocolony and its complicity with State-terrorist repression of citizens by extrajudicial political killings and forced disappearances already condemned by the UN, Amnesty International, World Council of Churches, Human Rights Watch, and the Permanent People's Tribunal of Europe.

Pauline Campbell assaulted by Police at Holloway Prison demo.

12-07-2007 00:02

Pauline returns to Holloway womens Prison.
On Monday Pauline Campbell returned to HMP Holloway in North London to bring her unique form of protest to the scene of yet another woman fatality in the prison system. The last Pauline was here in 2005:

It was to protest over the death of Karen Anne Fletcher. Pauline was arrested but the charges were later dropped as they usually are. The Prison system is decidedly nervous about giving the Pauline the platform of a courtroom to relay embarrassing facts. One such fact is that since the death of Pauline’s daughter in Styal Prison in 2003 a further 38 women have died in Prison in dubious circumstances. Pauline was at Holloway on this occasion to mark the death of Marie Cox who died inside the walls of Holloway on June 30th.

N.B. Two Policemen were primarily involved in the incidents described below. As referring to them as NI 649 and NI 463 seems a bit impersonal so I have decided to call them ‘Porky’ and ‘Porkier’.

John Bowden and Guantanamo Bay

10-07-2007 13:31

I just received a lovely letter from John Bowden. He has been told in writing why he isn't allowed to hear the CD I made for him. An assistant governor at Glenochil listened to it and deemed it contained sectarian songs. When asked for an example she said it was the Seize the Day song "Club X-Ray". She wrote this clearly criticised Guantanamo Bay and such criticisms would offend prison staff.

Hevallo actively supports the Kurdish struggle in Turkey

09-07-2007 13:37

It is shocking at a time when the psychological warfare and criminalisation of the Kurdish struggle in Turkey is at its highest, that there are not a lot of sites/blogs in English, that give uptodate information from a Kurdish perspective and challenge the label of 'terrorist' and 'terror' that is so readily accepted by the Western governments. Hevallo tries to do that. Please help by linking with Hevallo and circulating this sites address widely and actively challenge Turkish psycho ops!

"Black resistance and pink blockades go hand in hand, and pink clowns were defended by black anarchists when the police roughed them up during the actions and demonstrations: pink and black are complementary and not substitutes, like many, including myself, were led to believe in the past few years."

Mikey Powell Campaign screening of Injustice: Tues 10th July

07-07-2007 18:30

The Mikey Powell Campaign in association with Birmingham Indymedia will be screening 'Injustice' on Tuesday 10th July at 7:30 pm at the Custard Factory's Theatre in Digbeth Birmingham. The screening will be preceded by a talk by a member of the Mikey Powell Campaign.

On extremely rare occasions Mikey was prone to bouts of depression, and during an episode the Police were called. Mikey was arrested outside his mother's house in Lozells Birmingham. Whilst in Police Custody in Handsworth, Birmingham on September 7th 2003, Mikey died at the hands of West Midlands Police.

'This is what happened. Officers drove a police car at Mikey, hitting him, beat him with batons, CS gassed him, restrained him and, knowing he was injured, and drove him to a police station not a hospital. At the police station the officers simply did not call for an
ambulance for over 4 minutes. Mikey was dead by the time it arrived.'

His family and friends continue the campaign for justice.
