Convergences For Climate Action Summer 2008 ---- With extreme weather, droughts,
species extinctions, and melting ice caps becoming more of a reality each day,
it is time for us to come together to take direct action against climate change.
This summer Rising Tide North America in collaboration with other organizations
will host a number of regional Convergences for Climate Action to create a space
of collective empowerment to resist the fossil fuel empire and fight for climate
justice. ---- Convergence 2008 The international movement to confront climate
chaos is heating up! Following to the success of this past summer's Convergences
for Climate Action in the south east, west coast as well as the Camp for Climate
Action in the United Kingdom we are excited to announce that there are plans to
organize more convergences next summer.

Planning is in the works for the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Germany and
Australia and here in North America we're planning convergences on the west
coast, in the south east and the north east. Do you want to help with organizing
one of these convergences or plan one in your own region? Please email us at
contact@risingtidenorthamerica.org or call (202) 657-6772 for more information.

What is a convergence for climate action anyways???
An opportunity to bring different people and organizations together for a week
to talk about tangible ways we can confront the root causes of climate change
while at the same time envisioning and creating thriving healthy communities
that do not rely on the burning of fossil fuels. There will be dozens of
workshops, trainings and teach-ins on a plethora of topics as well as
coordinated days of action.

1973 November 17 remembrance, 2007 events in greece

Sources (greek only): Athens.indymedia.org http://www.indy.gr
Athens: According to news posted at athens.indymedia.org, diverse attacks
happened during the customary marches of remembrance to November 1973 events
(the rebellion against the military junta - occupation of the polytechnic school
and the armed invasion of the police and the army to the school that caused
dozens of fatalities and many arrestees torture). Stones and paints were thrown
to the Court Council of the State, bank subsidiaries, ATMs got damaged,
and a WIND shop had its window glasses broken. Clashes between protestors and
undercover policemen and between protestors and PASOK (ex-ruling party) youth
members also happened. (During last year's November 17 march, PASOK youth
members had paid some hooligans to beat left wing and anarchist protestors, so
as to defend their bloc from any possible threat). More than 20.000 people
participated in the marches in Athens, while the state mobilized more than 8.000
Thessaloniki: At 4:20 in the morning a group placed gas canister bombs at two
police cars, one van, and at the glass windows of an office of the municipal
police at Evosmos district. A communiqué appeared at athens.indymedia.org,
claiming the action for a "minor group of mostly mentally disordered persons,
with a loose perversion to unlawful actions, ruining public and private
properties" (This is in fact a term used by V. Floridis, a public prosecutor
announcing that the police will be authorized to perform arrests inside the
universities, to characterize any non-peaceful demonstrators). The group claims
it was an act of solidarity to - empoisoned waiting for trial- Marios Tsourapas
and Chrissostomos Kontorevithakis, and states its solidarity to anarchist
Christina Tonidou (also in prison waiting for trial), and demands "freedom to
all captivated prisoners of democracy" Later on, during the ordinary flowers for
the monument of November 17 in the universities, a group of students called
"Autonomous Formations" left a broken CCTV camera the found inside the
universities. Their communiqué in greek can be found at athens.indymedia.org
they mention that "our time is not for flowers", "but the society people were
dreaming of back in 1973 remains still a dream", as well as "against the state's
and capital's omnipotence, we stand for radical thought and direct action".

During the march, the Post office on Ethnikis Amynis Str. was broken. Some
protestors also attacked the Lefkou Pyrgou Police Department (At Aristotelous
Square) with sticks and stones. For more information: www.indy.gr.
Heraklion, Crete: Attacks with stones, bottles and paints were made against bank
subsidiaries and security cameras, during the march.
