NATO 3: Undercover Cop “Mo” Begins Testimony Amidst Repeated Defense Objections

Solidarity

Yesterday, undercover Chicago cop Mehmet Uygun, aka “Mo” or “Turk,” took the stand in the trial against the NATO 3: Brent Betterly, Jared Chase and Brian Jacob Church. “Mo” is expected to be the state's final witness in the conspiracy and terrorism case. The state began their case with the other undercover cop, Nadia Chikko (aka “Gloves”). Chikko's testimony was so weak and full of holes that we expected the prosecutors to be desperately trying to salvage their case through Uygun's testimony. Our predictions proved to be true.

What level of species extinction does An Anarchist FAQ accept?

Anarchist Opinion

No doubt that workers' control of the means of production would offer a great improvement over today's society, but in An Anarchist FAQ Iain McKay has not properly considered the facts of (pre)history and the origins of hierarchy, and so 1) falls short of his own ideals, 2) lacks the necessary ecological context.

Palestine-Israel: The future is knocking on the door of the joint struggle.

Middle EastThe Israeli media is ongoing reporting on the Israeli elite of the boycott on Israel that not only became significant economically and politically but also just two steps from avalanche. Lot of activists who do not understand that the battle will not be resolved here but in the international area lost heart as the immediate gains are small. They do not understand that the local struggle is the Archimedes point the lever of the B.D.S. is leaning on. So, the joint struggle continue. The international activists who come here carry the struggle in their countries when they return home. Whether understanding the importance of the joint struggle or not, hundred Israelis, and hundreds of Palestinians are every weekend in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrakh, South of Hebron Hills, and sporadicly in other locations too.

You Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows

Dissent

On November 6 I was able to attend a speech given by ex--Weather Underground Organization (WUO) cadre and educator Bill Ayers in Berkeley. The WUO was one of many urban guerrilla groups that emerged from the New Left in the 1960s and '70s, though one of the more prominent because of its membership's leadership in the 100,000 strong Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the length of it's campaign against the U$ government and its racism both here, in Vietnam and elsewhere especially in Latin America. After getting on to the complimentary seats list on behalf of Slingshot, I grabbed a stack of 100 copies of the paper from the Long Haul Infoshop and meandered to the Hillside Club. The usual gauntlet of beady--eyed sectarians distributing pamphlets to the masses outside was sparse. A couple Spartacists who for a change didn't hassle me for not taking up exactly their line and someone from KPFA, the local Pacifica station that this was a benefit for and I were it compared to the Commie alphabet soup I'm used to from places like Chicago and Cleveland.

Plaything of the Rich - a History of US Health Insurance

Health

I am half--Canadian and half--American. I grew up mostly in Canada and thus have always had public--run health care in my life. I knew nothing about health insurance companies and all of their fine--print and evil until recently. Since coming to the US, I have not yet come into close contact with the American system since I have been mostly healthy aside from a baseball--related injury here and there.

A Decade of Earth First! Action in the “Climate Movement”

Earth First

The last ten years of ecological organizing under the Earth First! banner saw a significant shift in movement focus. Where defending old growth forests had taken center stage for much of the 90′s and early 2000′s, the fight against resource extraction became a defining characteristic of the last decade. What follows is a timeline highlighting Earth First! (EF!) participation in what has been referred to by some as the climate movement.

NATO 3: Police Flushed Liquid from Beer Bottles Down Toilet

Solidarity

The NATO 3—Brent Betterly, Jared Chase, Brian Jacob Church—were in court for a few hours today for testimony from a few of the state's minor witnesses in the case. The witnesses who appeared today were a Chicago cop who recovered a large plywood sign (called a “shield” by the state) allegedly built by some of the defendants, a cop who recovered beer bottles from the apartment where two of the defendants were arrested, and a fingerprint analysis expert. A couple of the state's witnesses were unable to make it as scheduled today, so court was adjourned early and will resume at 10am tomorrow. All supporters must pass through the two security checks and be seated by 9:45am tomorrow. We are expecting full days in court for the rest of this week except for Friday, as the trial will not be happening that day.

An Anarchist in North Korea

Asia

The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK)–North Korea. The very mention of the country’s name and a blizzard of buzzwords are released: Cult of Personality, Mass starvation, Nuclear-armed, Thought Control, Defectors and Reverse-defectors. A land completely closed to the outside world? Since the 1960s, a small but steady stream of foreign delegations, diplomats, NGO representatives, and regular tourists have been permitted to visit North Korea, albeit under tightly controlled conditions with official minders watching every move and word.

We picked up where yesterday’s testimony left off, listening to nearly all of the 55 audio recordings from May of 2012, with only a handful that were left unpublished for her partner, Mehmet Uygun (aka “Mo” or “Turk”), to testify to.

Activist Sentenced to 2.5 Years for Wire Cutters

Animal Rights

Tuesday, Kevin Olliff accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to 2.5 years in Illinois prison. The only allegation against him was possessing tools the prosecution claimed were intended to be used to "burglarize" a fox farm.

With credit for time served, and Illinois' "half time" credit, Kevin is expected to be released in 10 months.
