Pompadour-and-Guitar Bloc Celebrates Johnny Cash’s Legacy at the RNC!

kirsten anderberg |

Erin Siegal, aka Rine, was listening to Johnny Cash while checking her email a while ago, when she read a post from RNCnotwelcome.org about an event planned to take place during the Republican National Convention (RNC) being held in New York City at the end of August. The event, being held for RNC delegates, is to take place at Southeby’s, and will be in honor of Johnny Cash. The event is sponsored by the American Gas Association (http://www.aga.org), a multinational corporation whose membership includes gas companies in Brazil, Korea, and France, among others. Erin says, “It made me really sad…When it was announced that Johnny Cash’s name would be tied to the 2004 RNC, my blood boiled. It was just too offensive, too outrageous…Johnny Cash is a people’s hero.†So, acting like any reasonable activist would, she organized a Man-And-Woman-In-Black Bloc ()http://www.defendjohnycash.org), to protest outside the Southeby’s event on August 31 at 4 pm, to defend Johnny’s good name.

Squatting with the Poor Peoples Campaign

autonomous lifeform | Tired and exhausted from sleeping in public parks after arriving in Manhattan (forest dwellers will find a amazing forest in Van Cortland Park in the Bronx) I was relieved to find the Kensington Welfare Rights Unions, Bushville Tent City in Brooklyn. I slept on a futon in an empty lot next to a Baptist Church. Poor people have banded together to bring attention to the needs of the poor in Amerika. People from Cleveland, Philadelphia, Louisville, San Francisco, Providence and other places are filling in the space in the Tent City. It is a multi-racial mix, I sit and talk with African-Americans, Latinas and Europeans as we sit in a makeshift shelter. We talk about the issues affecting us as poor people. I am relieved to speak and be understood as I feel so misunderstood by my usually middle class suburban anarchist comrades. more...  1 Comments

Recent Site Problems and "Electronic Civil Disobedience"

NYC-IMC | Recently, you may have noticed that Indymedia sites in New York City and elsewhere have been slower than usual, and even impossible to reach at times. While some of the slowdown is due to generally higher numbers of visitors as the Republican National Convention approaches, nyc.indymedia.org has also been the target of "denial of service" (DoS)attacks wherein an individual or group of people intentionally attempts to disable a target website. NYC Indymedia also wishes to disclaim any affiliation with DoS attacks currently underway against certain right-wing websites.
...
These DoS attacks and counter-attacks have the feel not of enlightened political discourse, or even of civil protest, but rather of the futile and circular arms races taking place all too often in our world. Neither side seeks to create, only to destroy the other.

We'd like to reiterate that NYC Indymedia has not been associated with any of the DoS or other attacks on right-wing websites. Due to our philosophy of open publishing, anyone can post to our website. Even in the case of content so objectionable (for example, calls to blatantly illegal action) that our editorial collective decides to hide or remove the posting, there can be a delay while the hiding or removal takes place, a delay that is of course all the longer if our website is not working.

We encourage all those interested in the upcoming RNC to turn to NYC IMC and the whole Indymedia network for news and information. And we especially encourage everyone to follow the Indymedia philosophy and become the media.
