Assemble For Rights NYC

categories:

http://www.assembleforrightsnyc.org/

Assemble For Rights is a growing alliance of organizations and ordinary New Yorkers united to protect freedom of speech and assembly in NYC.

In light of recent efforts by the NYPD to create new rules regulating public gatherings, we have come together to ask the New York City Council to take charge in this matter. NYC needs new public gatheringrules. The city’s current rules are not effective in protecting civil liberties nor do they give the NYPD clear guidelines for policing public events. However, we believe only the New York City Council, as the representatives of the people, have the authority to make laws that affect our fundamental freedoms. We call on City Council to pass legislation that both safeguards the full expression of our constitutional rights and ensures the public safety. Assemble For Rights has put forward legislation that will accomplish these goals, and we urge the City Council to adopt it.

„Information Freedom Rules" is the title of the 4th Wizards of OS conference, taking place in Berlin on 14-16 September 2006. Among the topics are the future of free software and the presence of free netlabel music, the freedom of art and the free culture nation Brazil. The rules to be discussed include copyright law and licenses, quality assurance in free information and regulation of the electromagnetic spectrum, an essential resource as we move into the mobile wireless era. Another essential resource is money. New rules for an economy based on free culture will be one of the focus issues of WOS4.


STEAL THIS FILM

The League Of Noble Peers sends the following dossier:

In 2006, a group of friends decided to make a film about filesharing that we would recognise.

There have been a few documentaries by 'old media' crews who don't understand the net and see peer-to-peer organisation as a threat to their livelihoods. They have no reason to represent the filesharing movement positively, and no capacity to represent it lucidly.


March for Peace, Justice and Democracy

From: "Eli Pariser, MoveOn.org Political Action"


The war in Iraq has now lasted longer than the entire Korean War. Yet, our political leadership in Washington continues on the same disastrous course. We need a new direction that will bring our troops home.

Tomorrow, Saturday, April 29th, there is a massive "March for Peace,
Justice and Democracy" in New York City organized by United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) to demonstrate against the war.

Dark Places

An experimental group exhibition

Curator: Joshua Decter

The Santa Monica Museum of Art presents Dark Places, conceived and curated by Joshua Decter, with an installation design by the architectural collective servo. An experimental group exhibition, Dark Places features the digitized works of 76 international artists and architects, organized into eight “curatorial scripts." The show is comprised of the simultaneous interplay of eight distinct micro-exhibitions. These sequences of works are displayed via eight projector units incorporated within a translucent architectural armature suspended in the museum’s space. Relationships among art, architecture, media, and technological design are reanimated here, generating a new kind of immersive environment—the hallucination of a futuristic noir scenario inside the frame of the museum.
