Squatting Ban in the Netherlands

program date: 
Wed, 01/06/2010

For the last three years a ban on squatting has been in preparation in Dutch politics. A new act that is to ban squatting in the Netherlands passed through parliament on October 15th, 2009. Despite strong critique from the High Court, the union of city councils and even the Amsterdam police force, the christian/rightwing majority in The Hague is pushing this law through.

Having suffered from an immense housing shortage ever since the sixties, squatting has a long history in the Netherlands and has always been a legal means for thousands of people to acquire a roof over their heads.

Looking beyond the rhetoric: the arguments for (and against) Measures 66 & 67

program date: 
Thu, 01/07/2010

On January 26, Oregonians will be asked to decide how the latest chapter in the state's long-running tax wars will turn out. Opponents of two tax increases approved by the legislature in 2009 succeeded in collecting enough signatures for a referendum on what are now Measures 66 and 67. The former would raise the state income tax rate on those earning more than $125,000 per year while the latter would increase the minimum corporate tax. Supporters of the measures say vital public services are at stake. Opponents say raising taxes during a recession will only make matters worse.

British Parliament Member George Galloway has been deported and banned from entering Egypt, after successfully leading a humanitarian aid caravan into the Gaza Strip. Galloway’s ‘Viva Palestina’ convoy faced a number of obstacles while trying to bring over two hundred vehicles full of aid into the Gaza Strip.

Viva Palestina was just the latest of a number of solidarity marches and caravans showing support for the besieged population of Gaza on the one year anniversary of Israel’s massive invasion.
