Qaddafi lies live on after him (tags)

While no one deserves to die in a war, of the estimated 30,000 Libyans to die in the struggle to overthrow Mummar Qaddafi, no one else can be said to have had it coming more than Mummar Qaddafi. Not only did he rule for more than 40 years by using terror, he had tens of thousands murdered, he conducted his 10 month campaign to stay in power with the utmost brutality. Most of those 30,000 souls were Libyan civilians killed by Qaddafi with artillery, tanks, snipers and cluster bombs. He targeted civilian to the end and so made the UN mission to protect them synonymous with ending his rule. So I find it odd that many on the left single out the killing of Mummar Qaddafi to demand investigation and justice for.

San Diego Hosts Three May Day Rallies (tags)

San Diego hosted no fewer than three rallies on Sunday, May 1 — one between the Centro Cultural de la Raza and World Beat Center in Balboa Park, followed by a march to the Federal Building downtown where the second rally was held, and a third at the San Diego Community Concourse that united the participants with another set of marchers, who had assembled earlier in the morning in Chicano Park, also for a walk downtown. The rally speakers focused on a wide variety of progressive issues — workers’ rights, education cutbacks, health care, immigrants’ rights, war and peace, Queer liberation — and attempted to draw connections between them and psych the participants for the long struggle ahead to preserve and extend those rights in the face of a relentless assault on them by the radical Right.

Los Angeles Mobilizes in Support of People in Oaxaca (tags)

Tension remains high in Oaxaca City as military flights continue, creating a general anxiety among residents over a possible massive crackdown against a popular movement demanding the resignation of the state’s governor. Mexico’s Attorney General’s office said it is looking into the cases of small explosions that shattered windows and glass doors at 3 different banks in Oaxaca City yesterday. A previously unknown guerrilla group claimed responsibility for the blasts, although many suspect the attacks were staged to create a pretext for an intervention by federal forces. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, a group of people is protesting in front of the Mexican Consulate, in an attempt to raise awareness about the volatile situation. (4:44 minutes and includes lede)

Para nosotros no es cuestión de si ganarémos nuestra libertad, sino cúando y cómo lo haremos. Justicia y Libertad para todos Conferencia sobre presos Mexicanos/Raza y el colonialismo Conferencia anual del Proyecto de Presos Chicano Mexicanos (CMPP) sobre los Presos Mexicanos/La Raza y el colonialismo boletín numero 2, 10 de junio, 2006 Desde 1997, el Proyecto de Presos Chicano Mexicano ha organizado su Conferencia anual sobre Presos Raza y el Colonialismo. La conferencia de este año sera organizada bajo la consigna: Justicia y Libertad para Todos. Conferencias en el pasado se han llevado acabo en San Jose, Oxnard, Riverside, y San Diego y han consistuido en discusiones, talleres, testimonios, y ponencias. La conferencia del 2006 se llevará acabo en el Centro de Acción Popular, ,esquina de las Calles 11 y Hope (425 W. 11th St.) en Los Angeles. Este 24 de junio. EL SISTEMA PENAL ES UN INSTRUMENTO PARA LA OPRESIÓN Y LA COLONIZACIÓN El Comite de Presos Chicano Mexicianos, formado en 1993 por Unión del Barrio ha sido uno de los grupos más consistentes en realizar trabajo sobre la cuestión de las prisiones y su relación al capitalismo y el colonialismo-imperialismo (tambien conocido como el Capitalismo Global). Las Conferencias del CMPP han sido organizadas en torno a los siguientes objetivos: 1. Traer claridad a la cuestión de las prisiones y el sistema penal de Estados Unidos y su papel en mantener a Mexicanos y otras nacionalidades oprimidas y colonizadas. Queremos exponer a nuestro pueblo la realidad de que la meta principal del sistema de "justicia penal" (prisiones, policias, fiscales, jueces, etc. no es llevar acabo la ley y el orden, sino es una conspiración capitalista-imperialista de utilizar el sistema de prisiones como instrumento de opresión y colonización mientras gana miles de millones de dolares por medio de la crecación de lo que se conoce hoy en día como el Complejo Penal-Industrial. 2. Crear un espacio en donde fuerzas verdaderamnete progresistas y revolucionarias puedan compartir sus perspectivas e información sobre esta cuestión de importancia máxima. Las conferencias luchan por desafiar y cambiar una situación en la cual el encarcelamiento masivo de Raza, Africanos y otras nacionalidades oprimidas se define por demagogos racista-derechistas o liberales pequeñoburgueses que no tienen ni la intención ni la habilidad para definir la verdadera naturaleza del llamado sistema penal de Estados Unidos y el Complejo Penal-Industrial. Las Conferencias del CMPP entonces sirven como voz para los mas afectados (la comunidad, la juventud, los pobres y los obreros) por el complejo penal industrial y entonces tienen mas voluntad para enfrentar su existencia. 3.Forjar una red de activistas que trabajarán en unidad y en forma ética con principios utilizando la ciencia de lucha para llevar acabo una sociedad justa, democratica y pacífica. Actualmente, las fuerzas progresistas y revolucionarias en nuestra comunidad siguen siendo una minoria extremadamente pequeña sin influencia significativa sobre el pensamiento y el actuar de la mayoria de nuestro pueblo. El CMPP cree que la creación de una red de activistas comprometidos nos ayudará a solucionar esta situación. 4. Formular estratégias y tácticas que harán más eficaz nuestra lucha. Encontrar formas de incluir la cuestión de prisiones como parte de la lucha global por los derechos humanos y la liberación nacional. Nuestro objetivo es hacer la cuestión de los presos una parte integral en la lucha por la liberación y la autodeterminación. 5. Apoyarnos unos a otros en la publicación de pamfletos, libros, boletines, y todas las demas formas de comunicación, como medio de romper el agarre que los medios de difusión capitalista-colonialistas tienen actualmente sobre las mentes de la mayoría de la gente(de todas las nacionalidades y razas) manteniendonos ignorantes de los verdaderos motivos y la existencia de leyes represivos (Proposicion 21, los "three strikes," HR4037, etc) y el complejo preso industrial. EL ENFOQUE DE LA CONFERENCIA SERA COMPARTIR, APRENDER Y UNIRNOS La conferencia de este año Sobre los Presos de la Raza y el Colonialismo tomará la forma de una discusión de mesa redonda. La discusión se enfocará en: 1. La cuestión de las prisiones y su relacion con la lucha total por al liberación del pueblo mexicano. 2. La violencia prisionera, con un enfoque especial sobre la situación entre mexicanos y africanos, y como este asunto se desenvuelve en las calles y en la comunidad y sabotea la unidad necesaria para avanzar la lucha en contra de todas las formas de opresión. y la liberación de nuestras comunidades. La continuación del trabajo de construcción de una red de activistas y como crear un plan de acción basado en la ciencia (estratégias y tácticas comprobadas) y la unidad con principio. 4. La importancia de la juventud y la mujer en nuestra lucha contra el Complejo Penal Industrial La discusión de mesa redonda tendrá un facilitador, un ponente principal, y un secretario/relator. El ponente iniciará el dialogo con comentarios introductorios que generarán discusión y crítica, y nos llevarán a soluciones y tácticas para incluirse en un plan de acción. Los grupos de discusión fungirán en forma de mesa redonda, permitiendo que todos provean y compartan información y aprenden uno del otro. ENFRENTANDO NUESTRAS LIMITACIONES Mientras nos gustaría ver una conferencia más grande, las realidades de hoy en día y este periodo de la historia no nos permiten organizar un evento mas grande. Junto con los recursos limitados, hay que reconocer que hay poco interés (relativamente hablando) sobre la cuestión de las prisiones entre activistas y las masas de nuestro pueblo. Una de las razones por la cual nos encontramos en esta situación es que los medios de difusión racistas corporativistas son tremendamente eficaces en confundir y lavar el cerebro de las masas de nuestro pueblo con respecto de este asunto, junto con otros asuntos críticos de nuestros tiempos(guerra, hambre, la pobreza, la injusticia, la destrucción de la tierra, etc.) Sin embargo, el CMPP se dedica a encontrar la solución a nuestra opresión y encontrar el camino que nos llevará a la liberación. Creemos que solo una organización seria, organizada con disciplina fuerte, y avanzada politicamente puede derrotar los enemigos de las masas y crear un mundo, justo, pacifico, y libre. Para nosotros, no es cuestión de si ganarémos nuestra libertad, es cuestion de cúando y cómo lo haremos.
