What's Wrong with San Diego's City Finances? (tags)

The predominantly Queer San Diego Democrats for Equality heard a presentation July 26 from "Paradise Plundered" author Vladimir Kogan. The book, co-written with professors Steven P. Erie and Scott A. MacKenzie, argues that San Diegans have long wanted their city government to do far more in services than they're willing to pay for in taxes -- and recently they and the politicians seeking to lead the city, most notably Right-wing Queer Mayoral front-runner Carl DeMaio, have been scapegoating city workers and their unions for the city's pension crisis and other financial shortfalls.

The Time is Now to Support Carlos Montes, Beloved Chicano Activist (tags)

A very important trial is coming up this Tuesday in LA. There will be a large crowd of supporters outside the criminal court building at 8 am demanding justice for Carlos Montes. What justice would mean in this case is that the District Attorney Steve Cooley drops the charges against Carlos Montes, a beloved Chicano activist, before the trial even starts. If the trial does proceed, the jurors will hear many tall tales told to them by the prosecution. What they will see, however, with their own clear eyes is that Carlos Montes' house was raided nearly one year ago at 5am because of FBI political repression due to his years of activism.

Trial of Carlos Montes to begin May 15. Activists say prosecution is political repression. (tags)

Carlos Montes, longtime anti-war, Chicano right and immigrant rights activist is facing multiple felony charges in a trial that starts at LA County Superior Court May 15, 2012.

2 felony charges dropped in case against activist Carlos Montes (tags)

Protestors gathered outside of LA Superior Court yesterdayas planned, and chanted “Justice for Carlos Montes, drop the charges.” 2 of the 6 felony charges against Montes were dropped becuase the statutue of limitations had expired. In the discussion of the dismissal motion, the prosecution admitted that Department of Justice records on Montes’ legal history were contradictory. Montes contends the prosecution is motivated by a desire put a damper on his social and political activism with baselss charges. Montes is currently urging people to protest against NATO on May 20, 2012 in Chicago.

Solidarity for activist Carlos Montes as he goes to trial TUESDAY (tags)

Picketing will begin tomorrow morning outside Los Angeles County Superior Court as we perepare for the day's injustice. Carlos Montes is on the docket for a charge fabricated on the basis of a 42 year old misdemeanor. This is merely an excuse to disrupt his life by forcing him to go to trial. The lifetime of harassment suffered by Montes is how the United States rewards the struggle for peace and justice. Carlos will have his day in court tomorrow, on trumped up charges, simply because a faction of our Secret Police wants him shut up. Solidarity is mandatory. Show that you're human, love and don't surrender.

The everyday violence of the state, of which the murder of several SLA members was only a part, is immense. Sara Jane Olson spent and continues to spend her life in accordance with her conscience, bravely resisting systems of oppression. We regard her a hero and history will as well.

Whoever Doesn't Really Try, Consents. (tags)

Mass symbolic, sanctioned marches that do nothing to actually change the status quo serve as painless absolution rituals, that allow the participants to “bear witness”, to “speak truth to power” and to “wash their hands of the blood of empire.” Marches, with their biting satire and snazzy costumes, do not provide a real means for stopping the carnage they deplore. A “functioning” democracy needs some form of sanctioned, orderly protest to stimulate discussion, and if the current regime were really “that bad” they wouldn’t allow big demonstrations, right? Ineffective activism, like regulated marches, actually provides a façade of healthy interchange and is welcomed by the status quo. The majority of demonstrators are aware well in advance that their actions will likely have no tangible effect on the negative of the empire, but they go to a huge rally and can sleep better at night having chanted out their guilt. Just as it can be said qui tacet consentive videtu (whoever is silent consents) it can also be said “whoever doesn’t really try, consents.”
