24.00 Barcelona… prohibido pero la policia no vienen!

‘Impossible’ say the Catalan police, to evict the big camp occupying the main square

Los Mossos d’Esquadra no acudirán en la noche del viernes al sábado a la plaza de Cataluña de Barcelona para identificar a nadie, han confirmado a Europa Press fuentes de la Conselleria de Interior de la Generalitat.

Así lo han decidido este viernes por la noche después de haber podido notificar a una persona relacionada con la movilización la decisión de la Junta Electoral Central (JEC) de prohibir las reuniones y concentraciones entre las 0.00 horas del sábado y las 24 del domingo, durante la jornada de reflexión y la electoral.

Desde Interior se ha levantado acta conforme esta persona ha recibido por la tarde su notificación, según las mismas fuentes.

La Conselleria había decidido emitir mediodía un comunicado sobre la manifestación “ante la imposibilidad física y material de comunicar el acuerdo a cada uno de los convocantes y participantes de estas concentraciones –ya que nadie se ha erigido como portavoz oficial–“.

Syrian troops kill more protesters

 Protesters continue to take to the streets despite the bloody military crackdown

Syrian security forces have shot dead at least nine people as mass protests have again swept across the country after Friday prayers, activists say.

Witnesses said at least three people were killed when shots were fired into a protest in the central city of Homs.

Fatalities are also being reported at protests in other parts of Syria.

Activists Dump GMO Foods at shops

Activist Dump Genetically-Modified Groceries

If you’re walking past the Lincoln Park Whole Foods this morning and see a huge heap of food sitting on the ground, it’s not a sale. The Organic Consumers Association, as part of their “Millions Against Monsanto” campaign, is dumping genetically modified foods in front of Whole Foods at noon. They’ll also be holding a press conference, in an attempt to convince more of the food-shopping public that GMO foods should be labeled.The “Millions Against Monsanto” campaign is fighting for transparency in labeling, an issue which causes tremors amongst the food industry. While almost all of us have eaten genetically modified food of some sort, a 2006 survey by Pew indicates that less than 30% of consumers think they have – probably because there is no requirement that genetically-modified food be labelled. On the other hand, food producers are worried consumers are much less likely to buy foods if they have scary labels with scientific terms on them, and Monsanto claims that genetically modified foods have no proven health risks. [Full Disclosure – I am a member of the OCA, but do not plan to participate in this protest.]

The problem gets even more complicated. In order to get USDA organic certification, a product cannot contain GMOs. Whole Foods also has started a program, through the Non-GMO project, to make sure that their store-brand products are GMO free. But, Whole Foods (despite its environmental credentials) still carries many conventional products, which may contain GMOs. Should they be forced to label them?

Asistentes reciben al grito de “insumisión” la decisión de la Junta Electoral Central de vetar las concentraciones

Electoral Commission bans protests for weekend.. calls for TOTAL DISOBEDIENCE

Los asistentes a la concentración en la Puerta del Sol han recibido al grito de “insumisión” la decisión de la Junta Electoral Central de vetar las concentraciones para el próximo sábado y domingo.

Tras conocer la decisión de la Junta Electoral, en la emblemática plaza madrileña se han conformado pequeñas asambleas por parte de los organizadores y se han desencadenado gritos de “insumisión” por parte de los asistentes.

Según han confirmado fuentes de la plataforma a Europa Press, se ha convocado paraº a las 13.00 horas una asamblea general con el objetivo principal de confirmar la insumisión.

La Junta Electoral Central ha determinado que las concentraciones y manifestaciones del movimiento 15 de mayo no se podrán celebrar entre las cero horas del sábado, jornada de reflexión, hasta las 24 horas del domingo, fin del día de votación en las elecciones autonómicas y municipales.

Revolt burns in us. The time is now.

Goldman-Sachs in Seattle Attacked

 From PugentSoundAnarchist: Revolt burns in us. The time is now. From the first sparks, we are with you. Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 05/16/2011 – 8:15pm

Revolt burns in us on this day, Monday May 16th, because to live is to rebel. Thus, in the spirit of solidarity with those in struggle in Greece, we blocked a busy intersection in the business district of Seattle during rush hour with a banner that read: “Revolt burns in us. The time is now. From the first sparks, we are with you.”

This intersection is outside an office of Goldman Sachs, architects of the financial crisis that set the stage for the IMF takeover of Greece.

Hundreds of leaflets were afloat as the citizens gaped, open mouthed, but our actions are not for them.

This brief halt in the normal movement of the city traffic was a small gesture committed out of our hatred for this world.
The time is now.

From the first sparks of rebellion we conspire because the only reason to live is for a dream of what is not.

We are with you. Not out of pity or duty but because solidarity is our weapon.
