Fragments from the streets: 5/15/2012

With a wild week behind us and a wilder week ahead, this is this week’s Fragments From the Streets.

NATO Protests

Activists from across the country are converging on Chicago to protest NATO. Eight protestors associated with Catholic Workers were arrested outside Obama’s campaign headquarters, while demanding the administration spend more money on ending poverty and less on war.

The Indignant

Throughout the weekend, tens of thousands gathered in city squares across Spain to protest economic austerity measures.   The protests marked the one-year anniversary of the rise of the Indigados—the Indignant—a movement that has inspired the global, anticapitalist movement.

Protestors fight immigration policy

Occupy Chicago and Our Lady of Guadalupe Angelican Mission organized a protest Tuesday against what they described as draconian U.S. immigration laws. Four protestors were arrested.

Ticket This

The Coalition for Economic Survival spoke out at a City Council meeting against Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s attempt to raise the cost of parking tickets in Los Angeles. The advocates argue that the hike in rates unfairly targets low income communities.

Nakba Day

Dozens were injured during clashes in Palestine Tuesday, when protestors marked Nakba Day. This day 800,000 Arabs were displaced when Israel was founded in 1948. 

Cutting the cuts

Monday hundreds of antipoverty activists rallied across California protesting proposed budget cuts targeting social service organizations. 

Burning Art

Casoria Contemporary Art Museum Director Antonio Manfredi began to fulfill his promise to burn three pieces of art per week until Italy reinstates his budget, which has been slashed.

Ball and Chain

Students at the University of Colorado-Boulder displayed the amount of debt they owed on their graduation caps. Others added plastic ball and chains to their graduation regalia in silent objection to rise in student debt.

That’s it for this week’s Fragments From the Streets. Write in and let us know what actions are exciting you this week. Contact us at [email protected].

Good traders would let the seller sell his car without any trouble and in a matter of months he would already be counting the money he earned by selling his car. www.canopee-paris.net
