TOPIC: PROTESTS: WORTH IT?
This topic came up recently because we were discussing big issues in the
world, such as 'WORLD POPULATION'. That lead to wondering what else were
people protesting right now, especially in America.
Yesterday, a media outlet contacted us to be on a show about how Occupy had
“fizzled coming into this year’s May 1.” The media keeps looking for encampments
or last year’s protests and is missing how popular resistance is growing and
demonstrating all over the country.
This year there were actions in many cities on May Day. On Occupy
Washington, DC we have reports
York, NY, Denver,
OR and Richmond,
VA as a few examples among many.
Allison Kilkenny, the movement writer for the Nation, got it right when she
wrote, “Now is actually the time when the most exciting grassroots workers’
actions are taking place.” She points to the low-wage
food and non-unionized workers
actions as examples. As you will see in this weekly report there are many more
examples of the growing popular resistance.
Kilkenny also points out that the FBI counter-terrorism unit in Washington State
remains concerned and was interviewing activists about their plans for May Day.
In the end, in Seattle, there was a mass peaceful march on immigration and an
anti-capitalist march marred
by police violence and property destruction.
While a single day action can show breadth of support, we prefer campaigns to
single day actions like May Day, because a campaign has the time to build,
educate and energize more people. Here is news about a few recent campaigns:
long protests against drones ended
with actions on both coasts. At the Hancock Air National Guard Base in
Syracuse, NY, the Upstate Coalition Against Drones organized a banner drop,
conference, rally and mass protest. Bruce Gagnon, an antiwar activist who works
to keep weapons out of space and
serves as the Green
Shadow Cabinet’s Secretary of Space, wrote a
thorough summary of all of the
events, and we added photos and a video of the banner drop. Bruce was one
of the 31 arrested at Hancock who participated in a die-in after reading the
names of victims of drones. And, at Beale Air Force Base in California, protesters
closed the base for hours
resulting in long lines of cars waiting to get in. Five people were arrested.
protests against the Guantanamo prison, done in solidarity with the hunger
strike at the prison, have raised awareness of the abusive detention without
charges. They forced President Obama to address the issue, saying he would try
again to close the prison (of course, under the law he could do a lot more than
“try again”). And a petition put forward a few days ago by Col. Morris
Davis, who served in the US Air Force for 25 years and was chief prosecutor for
terrorism and trials at Guantanamo Bay for over two years, to close the base
already has over 110,000 signers. Here is a link
so you can sign it.
Related to these war crimes was the opening of the Bush LIE-bury. Activists
showed up in force to let all the
presidents know that many Americans oppose their policies of war and militarism.
Dick Cheney was arrested! Actually, it was really Dennis Trainor, Jr. who was
wearing a Dick Cheney costume. Dennis produced a powerful
mini-documentary of the Bush protest events. And, Bradley Manning, the young
man who blew the whistle on war crimes in the Bush and Obama administrations,
created controversy after his selection as a grand marshal for a gay pride
parade was rescinded by the board. The result: protests
against the group and pressure to
fire the chairman of the board.
Environmental protests, which we regularly
report on in weekly newsletters, continue. In New York, Dr. Sandra
Steingraber and dozens of others who protested
a fracking waste storage facility that
will threaten their water supply and the health and safety of their community
from jail ten days into their 15
day sentence. It was Steingraber’s first arrest for civil resistance. She
voiced what many people are learning,
“I would do it again in a minute. …Being new to civil disobedience, I’m still
learning about its power and its limitations… But I know this: all I had to do
is sit in a six-by-seven-foot steel box in an orange jumpsuit and be mildly
miserable, but the real power of it is to be able to shine a spotlight on the
The power of protest has been evident in the effort to stop TransCanada’s
Keystone pipeline. While the approval of the pipeline has looked like a sure
thing in DC, the fact that TransCanada
has spent $280,000 lobbying for
the approval shows it is not a done deal. They’ve been bringing in high
powered lobbyists connected to the State Department where the decision will be
made. Lobbyists include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Deputy
Campaign Manager for her 2008 campaign, and a top grassroots organizer for the
current Secretary of State John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign. This
sign that we might be closer to
success than we realize – keep the pressure on. Even if they approve the
pipeline, that does not mean they will be able to build it if protests continue
to escalate. See below for information on direct action training camps.
Environmental destruction is one of the key issues that have led to an inspiring
campaign in New York for the 400th anniversary
of the first treaty between the Native Indians and European settlers –the
Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign. The two parallel rows in the wampum
record the agreement between two nations – Indian and European settlers – which
include a three-part commitment to friendship, peace between peoples, and living
in parallel forever—“as long as the grass is green, as long as the rivers flow
downhill and as long as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.”
This summer they are planning an epic canoe trip down the Hudson to renew the
agreement, which has been repeatedly violated by the United States.
The annual shareholders
meeting of Peabody Coal was protested by
a coalition of miners, environmentalists and Indians in Wyoming. Peabody,
the world’s biggest coal company, has been subjected to repeated protests because
it destroys the land, pollutes the air and water, adds carbon to the climate and
steals worker’s pensions. Peabody moved its meeting from its headquarters in St.
Louis to avoid protests, but found they couldn’t hide. The protest in
Wyoming included the arrest of three people for dropping a banner and for
holding a sign in the parking lot that said “Peabody Abandons Miners.”
There are lots of upcoming events as part of the growing popular resistance:
- On May 3, the movie Occupy
Love launched its tour in New
York, San Francisco, Los Angles, Seattle and other venues.
- On May 8 there will be nationwide
protests against Bank of America (Muckrock
released FOIA documents this week showing how BoA
intelligence worked with DC police against Occupy Our Homes in DC.)
- On May 10 National
Day of Actions Against Corporate Personhood organized by Move to
May 11 Poor
People’s Campaign March from
Baltimore to DC
- May 18 to 23 The Home Defenders League and Campaign for a Fair Settlement are
of actions around foreclosure
- May 18 ‘Operation
Green Jobs’ March From
Philadelphia to Washington, DC begins
- May 22 Stop
the Frack Attack People’s Forum in
- May 25 Day of protests
against Monsanto, everywhere on May 25th.
- June 24 to 28 Fearless
Summer week of actions unites front line environmental movements
- July 21 to 28 Tar
Sands Direct Action Training Camp in Utah
- July 27 to August 9 Epic
Hudson River Canoe Trip as part
of the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign begins in Albany, NY.
You can order or print OccuCards to
bring with you to these actions. There are cards for all of the issues being
protested above and new cards are being created.
The popular resistance is growing. Historian Howard Zinn in the “Coming
Revolt of the Guards” described a vision of how a broad popular resistance
could bring change, and that is what we see growing in our midst:
“The prospect is for times of turmoil, struggle, but also inspiration. There
is a chance that such a movement could succeed in doing what the system
itself has never done-bring about great change with little violence. This is
possible because the more of the 99 percent that begin to see themselves as
sharing needs, the more the guards and the prisoners see their common
interest, the more the Establishment becomes isolated, ineffectual. The
elite’s weapons, money, control of information would be useless in the face
of a determined population. The servants of the system would refuse to work
to continue the old, deadly order, and would begin using their time, their
space-the very things given them by the system to keep them quiet-to
dismantle that system while creating a new one.”
