Protesters shut down Wells Fargo Bank in Richmond
About a dozen protesters shut down a Wells Fargo Bank during the lunch hour Wednesday.
The protest was organized by Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE), which also staged demonstrations at branches in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland and San Diego.
The protests launched what ACCE calls a “campaign calling on Wells Fargo to enact a broad principal reduction program, reduce short sales and release data on borrowers helped by income and race.”
Bank officials in Richmond temporarily closed the doors at the 4300 Macdonald Ave. branch as the protesters marched in a circle and chanted, “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out.” Customers still used automated teller machines nearby. More…

Two fiery protests in as many days, Tibetan self-immolator passes away
WS – When compared to the Tibetan Monks; My activism is “no match”.
In more alarming reports coming out of Tibet, another Tibetan, who is a close relative of a Tibetan self-immolator, set himself on fire today protesting China’s continued occupation of Tibet.
Tsezung Kyab, 27, torched himself in front of the main prayer hall of the Shitsang Monastery in Luchu region of eastern Tibet at around 1:30 pm (local time). He passed away at his protest site, the same place where his cousin Pema Dorjee, 23, passed away in his self-immolation protest on December 8, 2012.
At the time of filing this report, additional details on today’s protest are awaited.
This is the second self-immolation protest in Tibet in as many days. Yesterday, Phagmo Dhondup, a Tibetan in his 20’s set himself ablaze near the Jhakhyung Monastery in Palung region of eastern Tibet. His condition and whereabouts are not known. More…

Workers’ right of all kinds, and vital concessions wrung from the Bosses with workers’ blood over the last 150 years are being rescinded by legislatures kowtowing to business interests all over the country. It seems to Citizen Journalist, Dr. Woody Konopak, that those rescinding the advances should pay the same kind of price as those paid who won them in the first place.

New York, December 1, 2012--Today's 1 pm protest rally at Spectra Energy's construction site in the West Village had as its focus the expedited construction work taking place this week-end. Prior to shutting up shop for the winter, Spectra is rushing through the installation of their high pressure natural gas pipeline under the Hudson from New Jersey to emerge at the Gansevoort site, where Con Edison will pick up the work and build out the last section of the pipe to link to their distribution system. About 150 to 200 people attended the rally, organized by Occupy the Pipeline. Monica Hunken of OTP and Clare Donohune, of Sane Energy Project, commented on the significant gas news of the week: namely, the passage of HR 2606 by President Obama which will allow drilling to take place in national parks and wildlife sanctuaries, areas reserved for recreation; and in an instance of particularly egregious timing, a pipeline to be constructed through the Rockaways, an area devastated by hurricane Sandy and still in the process of recovery.
My name is Brian Terrell. I'm co-coordinator of a group called Voices for Creative Nonviolence. We support the petition to ban drones organized by RootsAction. http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=6180
On November 30th I report for six months in a federal prison in Yankton, S.D., as a result of protesting drones.
The appearance of war being made easy by drones is resulting in more war. In Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and in places we don't know about, in places where we are not at war, we're sending these unmanned pilotless airplanes into foreign air space to hunt down people who've been accused of crimes only in the private court of the administration. They're hunted down and killed along with anybody who might be in the immediate vicinity.
Drones are creating new wars rather than scaling down old ones. Drone pilots in Afghanistan have been targeted and killed. Drone pilots in the United States suffer PTSD at higher rates than real pilots.
Drone victims are 98% innocent civilians according to the recent Stanford/NYU study. The other 2% are targeted victims of murder without charge, trial, due process, or in many cases even knowing the target's name.
Drones buzzing over houses traumatize children before they kill them. That those children are (in most cases) not American hardly diminishes the immorality.
Drones are rapidly being developed and deployed by other nations. Would you support the equal right of other nations to kill with drones in this country? And if not, why not? And how can that thinking not apply to U.S. policy as well?
On November 14th 2012, thousands of people took to the streets of Portugal as part of a European wide general strike. Until recently, the International Monetary Fund held Portugal as an ideal example of the effectiveness of austerity policies, but today, its economy is heading in the same direction as Greece and Spain. This short documentary details the week of the November 14th strike in Lisbon and the events surrounding it.

This the 11/2/12 video footage from the Portland Oregon action at noon: "Jobs With Justice Conducts Pre-November 3rd Direct Action Against the Portland Business Alliance to Highlight Links to Austerity.
Austerity is a systematic policy to balance the budget off the backs of the working class by cutting public services, privatizing resources, and burdening people with enormous private debt. Due to astronomical amounts of military spending, obscene tax cuts for the richest Americans, and a market crash caused by the fraud and casino behavior of Wall Street, our country is in massive debt at the national, state, and municipal levels. In Portland, this means school budget cuts and closures, library cuts, crumbling infrastructure, increased student debt, foreclosures, a race to the bottom in labor standards, and a lack of power or voice for our communities in decis ion making.

This short documentary looks at the current social crisis in Greece, the growth of alternative economies, general strikes, and the rise of the anti-fascist movement in response to violent attacks by the far-right. After six years of recession, the situation in Greece is growing increasingly dark. As the unemployment rate continues to rise and salaries continue to drop, the country has descended into an increasingly unpredictable situation.
Sioux Indian rights activist, actor, and former seeker of the Libertarian Party's presidential nod in 1988, Russell Means, has died at age 72 of esophageal cancer.
2 days ago I recieved this message from the Means family regarding the rumors of death surrounding Russell Means. His stay in the Cancer Ward was apparently getting a little "iffy". However, the rumor was to become prophesy today because he had apparently gone home to Pine Ridge to die.
evan vokes, a whistle blower, who was also an engineer at transCanada, has the National Energy Board of canada up transCanada's arse!
vokes tried every approach he could through the company's chain of command, using transCanada protocol. he climbed all the way up the ladder wagging his precautionary tail, all the way to ceo russ girling's office, and after having his concerns for safety in regards to his company's pipelines being brushed off by the company he worked for, and being severly distressed at their ambivalence, he went on "stress" leave in november of 2011. vokes took his leave for health related issues in regards to his concern for what he had witnessed first hand on the job. by the end of march, he finally met with canada's National Energy Board, to discuss the list of infractions and concerns, he had in regards to transCanada's practices on their pipelines, and on may 1st, voke's filed the official papework as a complainant with the NEB. on may 8th, vokes was relieved of his position as an engineer for transCanada, when he was summarily fired. this and worse is often the fate of those who have the strength to step forward into the role of truthsayer.
