April 6, film screening of "The Take" to benefit Indybay.org

Santa Cruz Indymedia activists were given a copy of The Take, a new film by Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein about worker expropriation of factories in Argentina after the 2001 economic collapse. There will be a free screening of this excellent documentary on Wednesday, April 6th, 7:00pm, at Barrios Unidos (1817 Soquel Ave).

We are trying to raise funds to support Indybay.org, the San Francisco Bay Area IMC. Why are we raising funds for Indybay? Since August of 2000, Indybay has become one of the most active Independent Media Centers, through Indybay.org and projects like Enemy Combatant Radio, Fault Lines Newspaper, and Street Level TV. Indybay is an important resource beyond the Bay Area, and has provided excellent coverage of the social movements and governmental collapses that have taken place in Argentina over the last few years. Now Indybay needs our help buying another server, because the current hard disks are almost completely filled up (with radical, independent media).

So come on out to Barrios Unidos (1817 Soquel Ave) on Wednesday, April 6 at 7:00pm to get educated and inspired from The Take, and support Indymedia.

Can the Left Tolerate Dissenting Views? The Case of Ward Churchill?

Censorship has inveigled itself into many Indymedia servers around the country. If the folks running the servers are going around deleting and ip banning posts from people more to the center, the whole ((i)) project is endangered. This writer questions whether we are going to allow dissent on the Ward Churchill controversy...a thread that has already been banned at one of three IMC's...

Tent University Santa Cruz, April 18-22

From April 18-22, hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and community members will gather at the base of the UC Santa Cruz campus to form a giant tent city, symbolizing the displacement of higher education in our state. The initial reason for our gathering is the unjust budget priorities that manifest at our campus. Our goal is to catalyze a grassroots cultural revolution.

Revolutionary Communists Take on Christian Fascists Over Schiavo

"One thing that God has brought to us is Terri Schiavo to elevate the visibility of what's going on in America."

Tom DeLay, Congressman from Texas, House Republican Majority Leader,
speaking to his co-thinkers of "Family Research Council"

Tom DeLay is a powerful right-winger who wraps his ambitions in a frenzied god-speak. He is the cynical manipulator, who redistricted Texas to disenfranchise political opponents, and is now rewriting congressional ethics procedures to rescue himself from his own colossal corruption. He is an aggressive liar, who recently dared describe Terri Schiavo as "lucid."

But, for a half second there among allies, he let out something true.

This huge national power struggle over Terri Schiavo's fate has, in fact, elevated the visibility of what's going on in America.

Governor Schwarzenegger, SAVE OUR LIBRARIES!

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger,

We have a crisis on our hands and we need your help. Due to budget cuts, all three libraries in the City of Salinas are due to close in the near future. The saddest irony of this situation is that Salinas was the home of the literary great and champion of the poor and downtrodden, John Steinbeck. In fact, one of the libraries scheduled for closure is named in his honor. Another one of the libraries is named after the great Cesar Chavez, and houses one of the state’s best Spanish-language collections.
