iMigrate Actions


General Strike May 1st | No Work | No School | No Buying Anything

Quick on the heels of the massive March 25th mobilizations and the student walkouts during the following week, April 10th was a historic day of action for immigrant rights across the USA. Tens of thousands of people took the streets in Los Angeles and in Santa Ana, while 5,000 marched in St. Louis and 10,000 raised their voices in the largest march in Fresno's history. San Diego also made history with a march of up to 100,000 people on April 9th. There were mobilizations in the Bay Area, in Tennessee, in Rochester, NY, and in DC. In Portland, up to 8,000 marched, while thousands gathered in Love Park in Philly. Allies mobilized in Pittsburgh. In Arizona, people were on the move in Flagstaff. There were major marches and actions in NYC and Boston, and Houston Indymedia provided a blow by blow of actions in Texas. In Puerto Rico, hundreds took the streets of Barrio Obrero. (These amazing stories are just a small sample of coverage of April 10th actions across the country; for more go to your local IMC.) Congress has been forced to backpeddle on brutal anti-immigrant legislation, but they are nowhere near to meeting the demands of the movement, especially amnesty for all. So the movement for immigrant justice keeps rising, with more major actions planned in the coming weeks: April 15th is a student day of action, and May 1st will be a historic day of action, with calls for a general strike, boycott, no sales or purchases, walkouts, marches, and actions in financial centers and at anti-immigrant corporations throughout the country.

Idealism, Realism and U.S. Foreign Policy


By George Friedman


Iran says it has enriched uranium. Hosni Mubarak is claiming that Shia in Sunni states are traitors to their countries. The French are in political and economic gridlock. With all these urgent things going on, it seems to us that it is time to talk of something important, something that has driven and divided American politics for centuries and will continue to do so: the argument between those who have been called idealists and those who have been labeled realists in U.S. foreign policy.

Latin American Integration by Noam Chomsky and Bernie Dwyer


Radio Havana Cuba Interview

07, 2006

Bernie Dwyer: I am reminded of a great Irish song called "The West's Awake" written by Thomas Davis in remembrance of the Fenian Uprisingof 1798. It is about the west of Ireland asleep under British rule for hundreds of years and how it awoke from its slumbers and rose up against the oppressor. Could we begin to hope now that the South is awake?

Noam Chomsky: What's happening is something completely new in the history of the hemisphere. Since the Spanish conquest the countries of Latin America have been pretty much separated from one another and oriented toward the imperial power. There are also very sharp splits between the tiny wealthy elite and the huge suffering population. The elites sent their capital; took their trips; had their second homes; sent their children to study in whatever European country their country was closely connected with. [commas better than semi-colons in the preceding sentence.] I mean, even their transportation systems were oriented toward the outside for export of resources and so on.

Good Bye Reality! How Media Art Died But Nobody Noticed


Subjective notes about Transmediale 2006

by Armin Medosch on Tue, 2006-02-07

The festival Transmediale is one of the oldest and biggest of its  
kind in Europe. Held annually since 1988, it started out as a video  
festival. In the early days the VideoFest, as it was called then,  
featured works which did not fit into the programme of the Berlin  
Film Festival - the star studded - drum role, fanfare - Berlinale. In  
the early 1990s the festival started presenting interactive works on  
CD ROM - I think this was called multi-media at the time. With  
changing technologies - adopting net art and generative and software  
art in the late 1990s - the festival kept true to its beginnings by  
maintaining the notion of critically engaging with new technologies  
and presenting a broad spectrum of alternative currents in art,  
technology and related theoretical production.
