March 20 Action In San Francisco

Join the Global day of Action in San Francisco Saturday, March 20, 2004 11am at Dolores Park, 18th & Dolores Sts.

On March 20th, the one year anniversary of the U.S. war against Iraq, a Global Day of Action will bring hundreds of thousands of people into the streets in cities around the world.

This will be a unified demonstration opposing the criminal and empire-building policies of the Bush administration and their impact abroad and at home. The march calls for an end to the occupation and corporate control of Iraq and to bring the troops home now. It calls for an end to the occupation of Palestine. It calls for the funding of human needs, the funding of social programs and demonstrates against the ever-expanding attacks on all immigrants, labor rights and everyone's civil liberties - It calls for a united stand against racism here and abroad.

The Great Global Assembly Line: film shoot for Planet USA

Profit Man and Greed Girl.jpgDowntown Santa Cruz was used to illustrate global economics in a satirical scene for the upcoming film "Planet USA." Fat cats and corporate swine moved sweatshop operations from Mexico to China, pursuing profits, assisted by Profit Man and Greed Girl and American military.

Large wads of oversized $100 bills sprinkled the streets of Santa Cruz on Saturday, March 6th, as corporate pigs celebrated their profits. With a curious public audience looking on, an independent film crew converged on downtown Santa Cruz to film the latest installment in the docudrama Planet USA. Part satirical theatre, part educational film, Planet USA examines the disastrous global effects of current American economic, cultural, and military imperialism.

Filming on the Planet USA project began July, 2003 when Director/Producer Marlene Winell organized 50 activists who participated in the Redwood City July 4th parade, the largest in Northern California. Under the auspices of "celebrating American contributions to world culture," the group utilized humor, satire and street theater in creating a float to "celebrate" Americas military, economic, and cultural domination around the globe.

Brian Avery Speaks In Santa Cruz

Brian Avery spoke at the Resource Center for Nonviolence on Sunday, March 15.

Avery arrived in Jenin as a member of the International Solidarity Movement on April 5, 2003. He had been in the West Bank for two and a half months when, after spending six days in Jenin, there were gunshots outside of the apartment where he’d met with two Swedish activists. When the gunfire quieted down the three went out to check the streets. They were about two blocks from the apartment when two armored Israeli vehicles approached the roadside. At thirty meters the vehicle’s occupants opened fire with approximately 230 rounds. The two Swedes were unharmed but Avery was shot through the face.

The bullet entered the upper right side of his nose and blew out the bones of the left side of his nose, cheek and upper jaw. He lost most of his teeth and his left eye was permanently damaged.

>> Brian Avery Interviewed by George of FRSC

comments from Brian Avery: "There were some miscommunications going on in this string, I'd like to clarify that there were not 230 shots fired at myself and Tobias Carlsson but rather 20-30. Also the comments about there being a "fighting zone" at the border when the ambulance was trying to get through is false. There was no combat activity at the time and the detention of the ambulance is standard policy against Palestinian medical crews."

Silenced Hearts: A Day of Mourning for the Dead in Iraq

The turnout for this event was good. On March 13, about 200 people showed up, most dressed in black, and carrying small signs with the names of dead soldiers or dead Iraqis on them. As the people marched through the town, the names of some of the dead were read over the megaphone while others chanted "(name).... Died in Iraq" or "(name).... Killed in Iraq". At the end of the procession, people assembled at Mission park where Mike Rotkin read a Mayor's proclamation naming March 13th a day of remembering the dead in Iraq.
