Dear friends,
We would like to draw your attention to a new resource page that we have
developed which focuses on a current wave of political organizing and
state repression taking place in Kenya right now.

In recent weeks there have been pitched street battles between police and
protestors fighting for a new constitution, numerous ghetto uprisings and
police shootings of unarmed protestors, whilst the unpopular government of
President Kibaki is coming under attack from every direction.

In this context we believe that it is crucial that international
solidarity activists become aware of these struggles and be prepared to
offer their support and solidarity to activists in Kenya in case of
further state repression and targeting of movement activists. The
following resource page with video, audio, text, and photographic
materials has been developed by members of the A&S web crew to highlight
these and other political struggles currently taking place in Kenya.

In particular we would like to draw your attention to three specific
postings:

We have links to an online video called "Peoples' Power: The Struggle
for a New Kenyan Constitution" which contains 10 minutes of video
footage shot during the July 3rd constitutional protest. It is a
presentation of the group First Woman, and can be viewed at

==> http://auto_sol.tao.ca/node/view/735

We also have a collection of 19 dramatic video stills taken by an A&S
member who filmed the July 3rd protests in Nairobi. They are organized
into three sections for easier viewing:

==> http://auto_sol.tao.ca/node/view/731
==> http://auto_sol.tao.ca/node/view/732

Finally, we would like to draw your attention to a photo essay containing
graphic images of a police attack on an unarmed funeral procession
protesting the murder of Nimrod Sianji Okwayo who was tortured to death by
police in Butere, Kenya. These photos were taken by Mbugua Kaba on June
26th, 2004 and are available for viewing at

==> http://auto_sol.tao.ca/node/view/754

We also have audio and background articles available at our main resource
page on Kenyan struggles at http://auto_sol.tao.ca/node/view/729 that
will give you a better sense of the context to these recent struggles.

We strongly encourage you to view these links and to forward this email
out to all your friends and contacts. More information about struggles in
Kenya and other parts of the world will continue to be added to the A&S
site on a daily basis.

Thank you for your time in reading this, and please check out these links.

In struggle,


Autonomy & Solidarity.
