Fatal encounter: Jennifer Laude meets US Marine Corps
24-October-2014-Justice-for-Jennifer-Laude-LGBT.jpgPHILIPPINES: As I peered at Jennifer Laude’s serene face in the open casket, I saw the wound on her forehead that was barely concealed by the mortician’s make up.

Call for Medical Aid Donations for Kobane
Kobane sorely needs medical supplies to maintain the defense of the city and many civilians. Doctors inside Kobane are fixing up people the best they can, including external fixation limbs mangled by gunshot wounds, but still people are bleeding to death after reaching aid stations and while being held up by Turkish border police on the way to nearby Turkish hospital. The main clinic in Kobane has been overrun by IS and later destroyed and medical care is now taking place in private homes. IS also recently burned an entire supply warehouse belonging to a local Kurdish relief organization. We've formulated a list with suggested donations that individuals and collectives can pack up and mail themselves.

EMERGENCY APPEAL: PLEASE MAKE A PHONE CALL IN SUPPORT OF COLIN, FIRED FOR UNION ORGANIZING
Last week IWW member Colin was fired from his job as a baker at Insomnia Cookies in Harvard Square. A trained organizer, Colin was working to unionize the company, which has been dogged by charges of racism, wage theft, failure to provide breaks and retaliation against union activists. Last year Insomnia was forced to pay back wages to four IWW members illegally fired for striking. Colin is the sixth IWW member unfairly fired by the company in less than two years.

Call for Support for Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet (DAF) and the People of Kobanê!!
2325040_1412705040-9188.jpgNEW UPDATE: As of right now, GoFundMe AND YouCaring have shut down our efforts. We can only assume why they would do such a thing!

To those who have donated already:

Don’t worry! Your funds will make their way to their destination!

DAF has also requested material support in the way of computers (laptops), video cameras, phones and other items. If you want to mail these items, please email DenverCommunityDefense (at) riseup.net for information as to where to send aid.

Thank you all for your support! Stay tuned for more updates!

Call-out for international solidarity with social center De Vloek
The city government of The Hague, The Netherlands wants to evict De Vloek (The Curse) free space on January 5, 2015 to make room for a sailing center. Located in the harbor of Scheveningen, De Vloek was squatted 12.5 years ago and meanwhile has grown to be an essential social space in the harbor. There is already enough space for sport sailing in the harbor, but De Vloek must nevertheless step aside for the latest prestigious real estate project which nobody is looking forward to.

BOSTON IWW’S TO GCI: F U!
gci1.jpgReposted from the Boston IWW blog.

Today Wobblies from Boston took to the street to support Portland OR canvassers, employed by Grassroots Campaigns Inc (GCI), who formed the United Campaign Workers* union in response to poverty pay, impossible quotas, meager training, and blatant disrespect. Canvassers’ demands included $15/hr, overtime pay, and sick leave. The company retaliated by shutting down its Portland operation, laying off employees with no notice and just two days’ wages!
