Benefit gig for CIPO-RFM prisoners in Oaxaca, Mexico.

28-03-2008 11:24

Feel free to download and distribute....
CIPO-RFM are a pressure group campaining for the rights of indiginous people in Oaxaca which is Mexicos poorest state. They were part of the APPO uprising in 2006 and have a long history of struggle against the corrupt Mexican political establishment. For a basic intro (In English) about who they are see this page:

Indymedia coverage here:

As a result of their work many of their activists are in prison on false and trumped up charges. Nowhere is the state repression of CIPO-RFM more acutely felt than in the remote village of San Isidro Aloapam where men and women have been murdered by paramilitaries supporting an American logging company who are trying to cut down their local forest. Other villagers have been detained and imprisoned by corrupt Police supporting the local establishment. At the the end of last year two London based IMC UK volunteers visited San Isidro to report on the situation. After many months of translating our findings from both Spanish and Zapatec we will shortly be publishing our material on this newswire. WATCH THIS SPACE....

In the meantime there will be a benefit gig for CIPO-RFM prisoners in London on April 16th. Details below. See you there.

SOCPA Victory? Demo 1pm April 5th Trafalgar Square

26-03-2008 03:08

Jack Straw announced plans to replace SOCPA sections 132-138, which ban spontaneous demonstrations around Parliament, and make it a criminal offence to demonstrate with police permission - to get maximum positive PR from the ever compliant press, Straw only announced the repeal now, while the need for new laws was hidden in the small print. One battle may soon be over, the struggle continues on the streets.

We are meeting at 1pm at the roundabout on the South side of Trafalgar Square on Saturday 5th April. Come with your mates and discuss with them what you want to do with the day. Bring placards, banners, whistles or anything else you can think of. Let them know you won’t be easily silenced.

Disconnection: How Scientology Destroys Families

25-03-2008 17:14

A Scientologist can become PTS by reason of being connected to someone that is antagonistic to Scientology or its tenets. In order to resolve the PTS condition, he either HANDLES the other person's antagonism (as covered in the materials on PTS handling) or, as a last resort when all attempts to handle have failed, he disconnects from the person. He is simply exercising his right to communicate or not to communicate with a particular person.
