2 Days Until 9/11 - 0/11/1973 

#CapitalismIsTheCrisis

Jakarta Is Coming or ,more precisely, “Djakarta se acerca” began appearing spray painted on walls around Santiago, Chile. What it meant would become apparent on the 11th of September 1973.


Jakarta or Brazil? This was the question the Nixon administration pondered when companies like ITT, Bank of America, Purina, and Pfizer came to them for help concerning the election of Salvador Allende. 

In Brazil, the military staged a “soft coup” at the behest of the country’s elite and American businesses. The military junta allowed the appearance of freedom and elections.

Think this is just stuff that happens in far away lands inhabited by non-white peasants? Think again.
Currently the corporatocracy that runs this country could be seen as following the “soft-coup” Brazilian model, but with the rise of militarized police violence – Jakarta is not only coming… Jakarta is about to kick in your front door. You will know them as SWAT. 

In Jakarta, with the help of the CIA, Sukarno unleashed a reign of state sponsored terror to suppress the cry for freedom from the masses.

The Nixon administration decided that the Jakarta model would be best and advised General Pinochet to follow Sukarno’s glowing example. Wholesale violence and economic “reforms” advised by the Chicago Boys was just what U.S. Business interests needed to “fix” decades of developmentalism that lifted millions out of poverty and illiteracy in the “Southern Cone”. 

[ANALYSIS]: “You may be asking what does “Jakarta is Coming” mean. Well, here is the Coors Lite history. Prior to the the military coup in Chile in the early 1970′s, this phrase started being posted around Santiago, Chile. The message was meant to alert Chileans that something akin to the coup that took place a few years before in Indonesia was working its way, via multinational corporations and the CIA, to Chile. On September 11, 1973 the government of the democratically elected socialist Salvador Allende was overthrown by a military junta led by General Augusto Pinochet. What followed was an economic full nelson, led by Milton Friedman, which gave corporations operating in Chile huge profits and led to a societal bloodbath, sanctioned by the CIA.”

[ANALYSIS]: “Several years ago, I spoke to two members of Allende’s government. Two who managed to survive. One of them recalled: “They used to threaten us, before the coup, before that terrible September 11, 1973: ‘Watch out, comrades, Jakarta is coming!’”
“We did not know much about Jakarta then,” he confessed. “Only that it was the capital of a far-away country called Indonesia… But very soon we found out…”
‘Jakarta’ is not just the capital of the fourth most populous country on earth; it is also the ‘least habitable major city in Asia Pacific’. Jakarta is also a concept, an enormous experiment on human beings, which was quickly turned into a blueprint that has later been implemented by the West all over the developing world.
The experiment was about trying to figure out this: What happens to a poor country that is hit by a brutal military coup, then thrown to religious zealots, and forced to live under the heel of extreme capitalism and fascism? And what happens if almost its entire culture gets destroyed, and instead of education, some brainwashing mechanism perfected abroad, gets implemented?
What if you kill 2-3 million people, and then you ban entire languages and cultures, theatres, art films, atheism, everything that is to the left of center?
And what if you use thugs, paramilitaries, archaic family and religious structures and a ridiculously toothless media, to maintain ‘the new order’?
The answer is this: You get your Indonesian model!”

[HISTORY & ANALYSIS]: “During the period 1965-69, and especially during 1965-66, a series of mass murders took place in Indonesia which led to the institution in power of President Suharto and the opening up of the country to Western capitalism. Possibly more than a million people were slaughtered. “

2nd Arraignment Update on Murrieta Charges

Today the remaining three persyns facing charges in Murrieta had arraignment and as of now all five pro migrant people have entered not guilty pleas.

The next step in the process is first to have a felony settlement conference at which point the court will set a later date for a preliminary hearing, where evidence to substantiate the felony lynching charge will be heard before moving to trial.

The settlement conference is not public and so we are not requesting court support at this time. We hope the DA will elect to stop prosecuting the selective enforcement of the police and drop the felonies and all charges.

We were approached by Sarah Burge, a staff writer with the Press Enterprise, and gave a brief interview with our lawyer present to correct a lot of the misreporting that came out on July 4th.

We will notify everyone soon on next steps to follow up the call in campaign. This will include circulating a documented list of grievances on treatment/injuries inflicted by Murrieta police as well as conditions and treatment of prisoners in Riverside and Southwest jails.

Please send your email address or email us at peoplesdefense5@gmail.com to receive updates and support us throughout the case. Thanks so much for all of the support, attention, donations and participation we have received! You are appreciated!

How do you talk to your parents about the celebrity hacking in a way that doesn't make it obvious that you have sent naked photos over the internet before?

gabydunn:

I’d say use a metaphor that isn’t the internet — put the focus on the hacker and how he committed a crime because he felt entitled to women’s bodies. Now take that into the physical world:

For example, some of these women have posed for provocative photo shoots before or done nude scenes in movies, so what is specifically titillating about these pictures? The non-consent. The idea that they were private and stolen and that the women DID not want them seen. They chose (as is their right) who to send them to. They did not consent to everyone seeing them. If someone has sex once, do they consent to have sex with anyone who ever asks for the rest of time?

Tell them the idea that men are thrilled by taking away the agency of these women and that they feel they are “owed” sex and women’s sexuality is a gateway to rape and at the very least a great example of rape culture. Maybe parents have a hard time understanding internet stuff, so try to show how it manifests in the world around us.

Police in Bristol take down the local Indymedia website while supposedly searching for suspects involved in string of politicized acts of arson, also compromising sources.

The Indymedia network has reported today that its Bristol site is no more, after police forced access to its users’ IP records as part of a search for the individual or group behind a string of politicised arsons in the area.

So this is the background to the situation. A humiliated police force under pressure from an influential paper is looking for a way to get itself out of a hole. And to do so it’s making it impossible for an independent news site that has regularly criticised it to keep going.

I considered putting this up as a news article, but I think it’s important that the broader issues at hand be spelled out. This is a case of the police force using its radically-extended online powers to deny a media organisation the right to protect its sources and contributors.

The equivalent in newspaper terms would be a raid seizing the contacts of every journalist on staff - something that would have every media organisation on the planet decrying what would rightly be called a State attack on free speech. Some of the most important journalism ever undertaken has involved protecting sources (journalists have gone to jail to protest this principle), and while there the police have the legal right to demand specific sources in the cause of national security or preventing crime, this is step change from seizing every single contact and potentially the names of every critic of the force.

More info…

Police have arrested a man in connection with arson attacks on four mobile phone and local radio transmission masts last week – the latest in a wave of attacks apparently perpetrated by a group or individual dubbed the ‘Bristol Unabomber’.

The Mail on Sunday revealed two weeks ago that an ‘eco-terrorist’ anarchist group calling itself the Earth Liberation Front/Informal Anarchist Federation has claimed responsibility for about 50 attacks in the Bristol area over the past four years.

They include earlier burnings of phone masts and vehicles belonging to local politicians and government agencies, the disabling of signal cables on two railway lines and the complete destruction by fire ten months ago of the Avon and Somerset Police firearms training centre, at a cost of £18million.

Each time those responsible have struck, they have issued statements on the ‘Indymedia’ and ‘325.nostate’ websites, justifying their actions as part of a war on the British state and capitalist society.
