Opponents of Corrupt "Trade" Agreement Stage March, Rally July 7 (tags)
About 200 opponents of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the so-called "trade" agreement that has been negotiated in secret between government and corporate representatives, marched on the Bayfront Hilton Hotel in San Diego July 7 during the most recent round of TPP talks. The march and rally finished a week of events protesting the secret negotiations of a corporate-welfare treaty under the guise of "free trade."
"The Activism Entry Point: Critiquing The Cancer in Occupy Debate" — by Joseph Anderson (tags)
Longtime Berkeley activist Joseph Anderson weighs in on the ongoing debate around Occupy Oakland on the issue of diversity of tactics and the use of BlackBloc style tactics. He weighs in on the recent debate between Chris Hedges and Occupy Oakland organizer Kristof Lopaur. The Occupy movement, Anderson says, cannot have both a diversity of people and a ”diversity of tactics” at this time – and the movement can’t shortcut the process of attaining, and retaining, the first by jumping to the second. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Journalist Snow Offers Alternative View of Africa (tags)
Independent journalist Keith Harmon Snow began his February 5 presentation at San Diego's World Beat Center with a promise to "piss you off" — and he succeeded. He took on innumerable progressive sacred cows, including the United Nations, the Peace Corps, the Nation magazine, Jane Goodall and Ben Affleck, and he presented an alternative view of recent African history focused on the role of Uganda, Rwanda and the U.S. in the continued war and exploitation in the Congo.

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.”

More Radical, Less Extreme: From Weatherman to the ELF (tags)
Violence is not the issue. I don’t think it ever was. Not back in the day when the Weather Underground blew up toilets in the Capitol Building and not today as the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) flips out over SUVs and condominiums. Revolution isn’t a leather-jacket tactic radicals adopt – it is a transformation of the whole society made by millions. It can be violent, but it’s not about violence. And it’s definitely not, as the old saying goes, a dinner party.

Lefty Hooligan Breaks it Down for Activists (tags)
You can't tell the players without a program. Lefty Hooligan, an old timer in the left scene, breaks it all down for you. This article is a few years old, but nothing much has changed, and the various organizations discussed are still around. Cults of personality tend to have long lives. Just look at Lyndon Larouche's longevity.

Here's the report which is in the current issue of Turning the Tide. Repression has continued. A June 14 Flag Day (flag burning) show at the info shop was shut done by the cops after repeated harassment. Young people living or shopping in the area of the info shop -- with no connection to anarchism, copwatch or the info shop-- have been stopped and hassled on the street by LB cops. The city attorney made a report to the LB city council last week about 'prosecution of anarchists' --

Police Officers Exposed as Black Bloc Wannabe's (tags)
These cops were trying really hard to "look" like they were black bloc demonstrators. The Black Bloc are typified as thin young looking fellows, and these guys, well.... We just don't know what they were thinking. I guess they were trying to be slick, and put up a front that obviously didn't work. Here they are exposed by one of the SDIMC cameramen. This is also a photo exported from video, and so we have footage of these guys strolling along with the activists acting as if they were one of them.

The San Diego Police for no apparent reason decided to march along the adjacent fence along Highway 5 right before the Tijuana Border crossing, before stopping in front of the Black Bloc. The Black Bloc responded by first throwing flowers and then stones at the police. The police responded by brandishing tear gas guns, yet luckily never fired them.
