Forbidden demo in Teheran
On the 9th of July 1999, mercinaries of the Iranian regime entered the
university of Tehran attacked people and smashed buildings. 4 years laters the
revolt in the university seems to be unstoppable. For this reason the government
has forbidden all demonstrations planned for the anniversary of the revolt in
Tehran. Police have received orders to stop the arrival of trains and buses
from every area of Iran into Tehran by any means.
People from many cities joined their struggles against the Regime with some
university students and gas and textiles workers. One protest was supported by
the US government interested in getting its hands on other strategic interests
in the Middle East.
The protests are also against the policies of privatisation of the schools and
universities that the reformist government of Khatami are promoting.

in italian: emergenza di stato
la fiat la décidé: tous le monde à la maison
Après la rupture par les syndicats des négociations avec le gouvernement et la FIAT, l'entreprise a envoyé aux salariés les
premières lettres de CIGS à zéro heure (une sorte de chomage
afin de leur communiquer que a partir dés lundi ils devraient rester chez eux
pas retourner au travail.
La CIGS, c'est à dire la ''Caisse d'Int=E9gration des Revenus'', est une
mesure sociale qui prévoit, en théorie, une indemnisation égale à 80% de la paie, en théorie, car il y a deux paramétres qui
définissent le dégré acceptable de revenu pour un famille
Pendant que le gouvernement attaque les syndicats et invite génialement
(sic!) à travailler au noir, les travailleurs continuent à lutter
empécher les licenciements et les fermetures de sites : les
initiatives de lutte continuent dans plusieurs usines FIAT. La FIAT, dans une
déclaration, parle de l'acceptation du plan du gouvernement, des
coupes ''douloureuses'', du cout du travail et d'une '' profonde
Une longue histoire que celle des restructurations chez FIAT: la
séquence crise-restructuration-réduction du personnel n'est qu'un
leitmotif auquel nous avons l'habitude depuis le 1974.
La FIAT sous prétexte des restructurations ''historiques'',
nécessaires à l'entreprise pour dépasser chaque crise, recourt à
cette forme de chomage technique pour pouvoir en suite jeter les ouvriers à la rue, exactement comme dans les cas précédents de 1997, 1980 et 1993 quand la rentrée au travail avait été donnée comme ''garantie'' à tous les

Thing.net closes down?
Pushed by Dow Chemical, Verio, the internet provider held by the japanese enterprise Ntt, decided to withdraw the concession to the server Thing.net, starting from feb.28 on.
Thing.net is a server that hosts since more than ten years hundreds of art sites
belonging to individuals and institutions (like the one of Moma Museum of modern art di New York),
publisher's sites, sites that make alternative information (like Autonomedia) and activism.
What raises the interest of the chemical giant is The Yes men's site, a group that
documents and disveal sick economic mechanisms behind neo-liberalism. The Yes Men
dedicated part of their site to the multinational Dow Chemical, that recently acquired
Union Carbide, in-famous due to the Bhopal disaster (India).
The web page, www.dow-chemical.com, was a fake, a parody of the official site of
the multinational. This web page is now hosted @ another url, while www.dow-chemical.org
points directly to the official Dow Chemical site: the powerful giant made such pressure on the
company that delivers the domains that it could 'absorb' it back under its own home page.
The immediate multiplication of mirrors of the indicted web pages led Verio to the
decision of interrupting anyway the contract with Thing.net, in order to avoid itself
an accusation for the violation of the Digital Millennium
Copyright Act [pdf file], which imposes
specific limits to internet providers in case of violation of copyright.
Thing.net already reacted, organizing a fund raising campaign via PayPal. Its goal is to achieve
more than 4000 IP numbers from American registry for internet
numbers. The IP will be distributed
on a number of broad band providers (15 or more), so that it won't be possible
to close down a network on the basis of a simple complaint anymore.
The cost of the whole operation of acquiring IP is estimated to be around 25.000 dollars.
Then Thing.net will try to charge Verio for violation of the right of free speech.
