      1/8/11 - The Hedz-Up Report covers the first meeting of newly-formed activist group, Hands Off St. Vincent's!, as they conduct their first community civil disobedience training and action planning workshop. In this clip, community members address the news that new "emergency care centers" are opening in lower Manhattan in the wake of SVH's closure. Related article: http://tribecacitizen.com/2011/01/07/first-impressions-emergency-medical-care/ More to come, stay tuned. In the meantime, visit our video blog, "Why Are They Closing St. Vincent's Hospital?" for our collected reports and future updates: http://watclosingstvincentshospital.blogspot.com/ Thanks for watching, help spread the word. Below is HOSV!'s press release: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Iana Di Bona, 718 309-8598, iana.dibona@gmail.com Hands off St. Vincent's! A Community Rallies to Reclaim their Hospital New York, NY - In April 2010, after 160 years of service to the people of New York City, St. Vincent's closed directly due unconscionable government and private industry failures. As a result, people are dying, emergency rooms at other hospitals are overflowing with the influx of patients, local businesses are hurting from the loss of business St. Vincent's provided and 3,500 people have lost their jobs. Hands off St. Vincent's is a group of New Yorkers who have made an unwavering commitment to fight through non-violent direct action (including civil disobedience) for a New Village Hospital that provides equal services to what was provided at St. Vincent's Hospital. "This closing is devastating, like a death", says Angela Jones, a Greenwich Village resident and former St. Vincent's emergency room volunteer. "We're all angry and we want our hospital back!" The group has promised to take direct action against those who work against the establishment of a New Village Hospital or are inactive in this restoration. The list of targets includes elected officials (or government agencies), developers, purchasers, judges, etc. "We will not waiver from our goal whatsoever", says activist and fellow Greenwich Village resident Timothy Lunceford, "Anyone who stands in our way can and will be a target. The only acceptable resolution would be the revival of our hospital. Stand in our way and you will feel the might of our rage." Civil disobedience trainings and action planning sessions will commence on Saturday, January 8 from 2-5 pm at the University Settlement at the Houston Street Center located at 273 Bowery - Classroom 3. (Directions: The Center is at the corner of Bowery and Houston. The staff will direct all "Hands Off St. Vincent's" participants. Take the F train to 2nd Avenue stop or B-D trains to Broadway-Lafayette or 6 train to Bleecker St.). A steady wave of actions will begin shortly thereafter. For more information and details on how to become involved, visit Hands off St. Vincent's at www.handsoffstvincents.com or the Facebook event at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=179956295358949. ###

        Practicing “identity correction” – the Yes Men target large corporations that put profits ahead of everything else. Getting inside the system, and impersonating business leaders, they smuggle stories out to the world to expose big business wrong-doing.

          This a sort of homework that I have presented at the "atelier d'écriture documentaire" in the parisian Ehess (http://www.ehess.fr/fr/) in 2010. It's a fiction-documentary about the group of déboulonneurs (http://www.deboulonneurs.org/ ), some activists involved in civil disobedience actions against the massive presence of advertising in France. The video is realised only with color digital photos, black and white analogic photos, and phone videos. The project is not ended, I wish to find some money to work on it.

          • Flowers Are Better Than Bullets


            from Kayann Short / Added

            Flowers are Better than Bullets was inspired by two events when I was in fifth grade in the spring of 1970. April 22 was the celebration of the first Earth Day and our wonderful teacher, Mr. Osborn, let us spend an entire day planting a garden outside of our classroom. Less than two weeks later, on May 4th, four students were shot dead on the Kent State campus following a demonstration against the unlawful expansion of the Vietnam war into Cambodia by President Nixon. These two events shaped my youthful ideas about the power and possibilities of activism and set my life long path toward social and environmental justice. I made this piece as a model for my students in writing about events that have influenced their own beliefs and goals. Many of the images used in Flowers Are Better came from cards and posters I’ve saved from that time. It’s hard to believe these events happened over 40 years ago because they’re still so vivid in my mind--and the same struggles continue. I hope this story inspires young activists who will create new strategies for much needed change.

It's now the worst tuna supplier in the UK, killing sharks and more to bring you their 'sin in a tin.' Email John West to get them to stop FAD fishing now - http://www.greenpeace.org.uk/fishfight
