After a long struggle, San Diego Indymedia is back on the web and coming at you with ~monthly media-themed events. In a media environment dominated by corporate, commercial, anti-community monsters like f***book and utube, we are working on figuring out what our role should be and hope to post some thoughts on that in the coming months. The web site appears stable for now, but there might be a few hiccups in the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience.

There are at least three reasons why organizing using social media is a bad idea:
(1) It robs us of the face-to-face relationship building that is necessary to develop the trust required to do anything that could challenge the state. f***book events are either toothless or a security risk.
(2) Governments and corporations have finely tuned their ability to use social media for surveillance. The recent revelations that social media platforms were giving Geofeedia, a firm used by pigs, preferential access and that only tw***er committed to not helping the government to build a Muslim registry are only two of numerous examples of how social media are our enemies.
(3) Relying and becoming dependent on corporate social media prevents us from working towards Autonomy. The decline of Indymedia, which corporate social media co-opted and fed off of, is one example of the losses our movements are suffering by organizing through social media.

The Dakota Access Pipeline is being built to carry 500,000 barrels of crude oil per day from the heavily fracked Bakken oil field in North Dakota to Illinois and from there along existing lines to Texas. The construction of the pipeline is destroying and desecrating numerous indigenous burial and sacred sites, and threatens the water and environment of lands it is invading. The Standing Rock Tribe, along with many other Tribes and accomplices is saying NO to the pipeline and calling for construction to stop.

El fin de semana del 13 y 14 de febrero del 2016, se compartieron 19 presentaciones que se enfocaron en la región fronteriza del sur de California, EEUU y Baja California, México. Uno de los propósitos del semillero organizado por la Sexta Tijuana y San Diego fue para mejor entender y conocer la región y para poder organizarnos contra el colonialismo que usa el neoliberalismo para rescatar al capitalismo de la autodestrucción. Cada día consiste en 3 bloques de 2 horas de presentaciones. Después de cada bloque hubo una sesión de preguntas y respuestas por 30 minutos.

Compartimos con la comunidad las presentaciones de aquellos que quisieron compartir su palabra. Compartiremos 16 videos con un resumen de cada presentación. --Leer más--

Convocatoria Zapatista a Actividades 2016

On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, in early morning hours several activists and organizers protested in front of the Mexican Consulate office in San Diego to demand an end to the violent repression and attacks against the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) and their supporters by the government of Mexico. The CNTE teachers, along with community, are denouncing the education reform implemented by Mexican President Peña Nieto, supported by all of Mexico’s political parties. This reform attempts to privatize public education and exploit labor, among more horrendous effects on the people of Mexico.

At this protest organized by Raices Sin Fronteras, there was an introduction by one of the organizers, leaflets handed to patrons, and rebellious music blasted from the PA system. Also, beautiful rebellious and resistant art hand drawn with chalk in front of the consulate office. --Read More (with fotos)--

“From Big Mountain to Palestine, relocation is genocide!” sings Klee Benally, Diné activist, filmmaker and former member of the indigenous punk band Blackfire, in his song 'An Act of Liberation.'

Benally refers to two of numerous politically and economically motivated displacements of people in recent memory. For one, the Nabka, 700,000 Palestinians were forced to leave their villages in 1948 to make way for the creation of the state of Israel.

The other was the topic of a screening and discussion of the 1985 documentary film Broken Rainbow, hosted by the San Diego Independent Media Center at the Metate Infoshop on January 29, as part of Enero Zapatista. The film details the historical context, events leading up to, and human and environmental impact of the forced relocation of 14,000 Diné people from the Black Mesa area, beginning in 1974, to permit expansion of the operations of Peabody Coal. --Read More--

Early this morning, March 3, 2016, armed individuals forcibly entered and assassinated Honduran activist Berta Cáceres, founder of COPINH, in her home in La Esperanza, department of Intibucá in southwestern Honduras.

Our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro Soto was injured during the attack. Gustavo is Mexican and a member of the organization Otros Mundos Chiapas/Friends of the Earth-Mexico, the Mexican Network of Mining-Affected Peoples and the Mesoamerican Movement against the Extractive Mining Model (M4). Gustavo survived the attack and has become a key actor in the investigation into the murder of our friend Berta.

In the context of the terrible assassination of the much loved Berta Cáceres, we call on the government of Honduras to pay immediate attention, to intervene, and to follow up on this devastating moment for the Honduran people. We also call for all legal and political measures possible to guarantee the immediate protection of our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro so that, once he has given his testimony to the Honduran state, he can safely return to Mexico. --Read More (english)-- | --Read More (español)--

PM Press author and legal/media activist Kris Hermes spoke at Groundwork Books Friday evening about the ways that activists can use the legal system to push back against state repression. Drawing on his experience organizing with ACT UP and against the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia, Kris described collective strategies that dissidents planning an action or caught up in the legal system could implement to avoid or reduce charges, including jail solidarity such as withholding identity, clogging up the court system by demanding a jury trial and refusing to plead out, and developing a coordinated media strategy that paints a sympathetic picture of activists and their cause for the general public. --Read More--

Orlando Watley, a Chickasaw Native from Corcoran, California, is a political prisoner with a life sentence at Calipatria State Prison in the Imperial Valley. He was charged and acquitted for one crime, a double armed robbery and double attempted murder, and then Riverside County tried to pin another crime on him, a triple homicide, because they were trying to clear unsolved cases by targeting Native Youth and People of Color. Despite being 100% innocent, Orlando was convicted based on falsified testimony and DNA evidence, and has been in prison for twenty-two years for crimes he didn't commit.

On November 11, 2015 in Los Angeles, San Diego Independent Media Center interviewed Kanahus Manuel from the Orlando Watley Innocence Project, which is working to reverse Orlando's conviction and secure his release. Kanahus, a Secwepemc womyn warrior based in so-called British Colombia, described Orlando's case, Orlando's life as an Indigenous political prisoner, Orlando's reunion with his Mother after eighteen years, the connection of Orlando's situation to colonial repression of Native peoples on stolen lands, and the ongoing struggle for justice and freedom for Orlando Watley.
