The U.S. Army Cannot Evict Us From Treaty Lands: Coalition Statement

The earth belongs to those who live on it, to suggest otherwise is ridiculous. At this distance we offer our solidarity.

On Friday, November 25, after the turkey was pardoned, the Obama Administration issued an eviction notice to the Oceti Sakowin encampments at Standing Rock.  We are a coalition of grassroots groups living and working at the encampments, and we will not be moved.  We stand united in defiance of the black snake and are committed to defense of water, our Mother Earth, and our rights as Indigenous people.  We call on all people of conscience, from all Nations, to join the encampments and stand with us as we put our bodies on the line.

Train service is expected to be interrupted into Wednesday evening as protesters blocked the CP rail line in Kahnawake, used by freight trains and the Candiac commuter train.

The protesters launched a 24-hour demonstration, starting Tuesday at 6 p.m., in support of opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline, an oil pipeline that is scheduled to be built under a reservoir on the Missouri River in North Dakota. Anti-DAPL protesters in the U.S. are based in Standing Rock, N.D.

1. Eco-campers resist oil drilling in Surrey Hills


An eco-protection camp has been set up in the woods of southern England to try and stop exploratory oil drilling at a precious rural site.

After years of planning battles, including two public inquiries, Europa Oil & Gas were last year given the go-ahead to explore for oil at Leith Hill near Dorking in Surrey and are now due to start work.

These loathsome environmental vandals want to fell hundreds of trees and permanently destroy a unique two-acre zone of beautiful woodland, polluting a much wider area, in the pursuit of short-term financial profit.

And while…

Kurdistan Solidarity Network

Women’s Defense Units (YPJ) of Rojava, issued a written message and a video to mark the November 25 International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and said that with the struggle inherited from Mirabal sisters, Zilan’s, Sakine’s and Arin’s, there is a relentless fight against violence of all types against women and the resistance will continue.

The YPJ message is as follows:

“The values of humanity and society created by the women are destroyed and looted today in different ways by the male hegemonic mind.

Food for thought: new organising initiative and bulletin for Deliveroo staff

Cautiously pessimistic

The growth of grassroots workers’ organisations at “gig economy” companies like Deliveroo and UberEats has been one of the few bright spots in the last few months, and this seems to be part of an international trend to judge by recent news from Italy. But so far, one major limitation has been the way that organisation and resistance has been localised in London, with little information available about the conditions of workers at the same companies elsewhere.

Now this could be set to change: Bristol Deliveroo workers have started organising through the local IWW branch, and a new bulletin is being produced with the aim of helping Deliveroo workers in the UK and nationally to communicate and organise.

Anyone with an interest in helping spread workers’ self-organisation can help get the Rebel Roo bulletin into the hands of Deliveroo riders near you: you can get copies…
