They are Innu, Cree, Dene, Lakota, and the are struggling to defend our Mother Earth against the servants of abomination, who are tearing open Her belly to steal her uranium, her gas, her coal, her gold…

… They are calling us to fight the good fight, the struggle that has always pitted those who belong to the Earth against those who, criminally, claim to own it…

This call is crossing the great ocean; it has brought the people of Québec to life, and it is coming to stand on France’s soil.

We are ALL called on to organize and participate together in the assembly in Paris on Saturday June 23 2012.

Our goal is to go to the home territory of AREVA, the company that is the source of all these abominations, and tell them we don’t want them in Québec!

We will also maintain a symbolic, non-violent, silent presence at the Québec Delegation in Paris.

The peoples of Europe need to know, lest they become passive accomplices to the “Plan Nord,” that they need to support the vital and legitimate demands of the First Nations of Québec, and beyond them of all Amerindians!

Thanks to the organizations Minganie Sans Uranium, Sept Îles Sans Uranium, and the mobilizations of the Innu, Dene and Cree peoples, the Réseau Zéro Nucléaire (RZN), C.A.N. IdF, CAN84 and with, soon we hope, the convergence of AIM, CSIA-Nitassinan, Les Décroissants, Stop Nucléaire, Greenpeace France, and anyone else who is willing to contact us, 45 banners are already on their way from still beautiful Québec to contaminated France.

These banners need your arms in Paris to come and form one big tribe and with one big voice carry the urgent message that our Mother the Earth must be peacefully safeguarded with the immediate, final, and unconditional stoppage of all nuclear installations.

The Minganie Sans Uranium association sent the 45 banners now on their way to Paris, at their expense, at a cost of approximately $450; we’re launching a call for donations to pay for returning these banners to our friends in Québec, and we thank them for giving us the opportunity to organize this first day of transnational action for the respect and the safeguarding of the Mother of all peoples!

“May the spirit of this struggle take up residence forever among us.”

Desde Andalucía, nuestra solidaridad y ánimo a las cuencas mineras asturianas, así como a las gentes del Estado español y del ámbito internacional que están plantándole cara al capital. Cada quien ha de servirse de las formas de comunicación y acción que encuentre más apropiadas a su situación y a su gusto. Las Primas lo hacen por Fandangos Personales en Bankia, CaixaBank y BBVA, ¿cómo lo haces tú? —–

Images from the anti-NATO protests in Chicago — my own footage cut with a few videos I retrieved online, so a sincere thanks to everyone who independently documented this event and published their media. Special appreciation for circle takes the square and their song: “Non-Objective Portrait of Karma.” v

Approximately 2,000 people gathered at Náměstí Republiky for a May Day demonstration and march through Prague. There was an enormous riot-police presence. They came to a peaceful May Day protest heavily armed with chemical weapons, flash grenades and nightsticks. Despite the 80+-degree weather, they had their faces covered with balaklavas under shielded helmets and wore ninja gloves. Before the procession began, they marched into position, completely surrounding us. Along the route, they randomly stopped the march several times — apparently just because they could. [...]

Approximately 2,000 people gathered at Náměstí Republiky for a May Day demonstration and march through Prague. There was an enormous riot-police presence. They came to a peaceful May Day protest heavily armed with chemical weapons, flash grenades and nightsticks. Despite the 80+-degree weather, they had their faces covered with balaklavas under shielded helmets and wore ninja gloves. Before the procession began, they marched into position, completely surrounding us. Along the route, they randomly stopped the march several times – apparently just because they could.

At the bottom of Wenceslas Square, a pro-fascist group had held a rally earlier in the day, and many still lingered. As our group approached the Mustek metro station, bottles, paving stones and random objects began to fly, first from the pro-fascists’ side and then from our side.

The situation was made much worse by the riot police, who stopped the march and kettled us into a dangerous corner, forcing us to duck and dodge the flying objects overhead. An elderly man behind me was hit in the head with a paving stone. The riot cops grabbed him by the neck and dragged him off as if he were a criminal. A young woman next to me was hit in the hand and knee and was bleeding. In addition to having to defend ourselves from flying objects overhead, two or three riot police began to aggressively push people for no reason, trying to provoke them. After about 10 minutes of this ridiculous situation, the riot cops finally let us proceed.

We continued the march past the old Magic Lantern Theater and Národní Divadlo (National Theater) to the Most Legií (Legion Bridge) over the Vlatava River. The Legion Bridge in Prague is named after the Czechoslovak legions, an army of volunteers who fought during World War I to achieve the independence of Slovakia and Bohemia from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, leading eventually to the formation of the State of Czechoslovakia in 1918.
