The old Peoples House in Copenhagen

History

The old Peoples House has since 1982 functioned as a selfgoverning alternative youth house, called Ungdomshuset, situated at Jagtvej 69 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The building was completed on the 12. November 1897, although its name was at first "Folkets hus" (The People's House). At that time, the place functioned as one of the resorts for the then-incipient labour movement of Copenhagen. Seeing that labour organisations were not very popular in the eyes of the authorities, and reprisals often were carried out against them, the working class had to build their own headquarters – Folkets hus was the fourth of these to be built. Several demonstrations and meetings were planted their roots in Folkets hus, and as a result it enjoyed a significant connection to the great demonstration against unemployment in 1918 when workers stormed the Danish Stock Exchange(Børsen). In 1910, The Second International held an International Women's conference at the house, declaring 8th March as International Women's Day. The promoter was Clara Zetkin (1857-1933), the German Social Democrat. Great persons as Vladimir Lenin and Rosa Luxemburg have also held speeches in the house.

In 1982 Folkets Hus was assigned to a group of young people – the original founders of Ungdomshuset – although the municipality of Copenhagen still owned the building. It was at this time that the building was given its current name: Ungdomshuset.

In 1999 the building was set for sale to the highest bidder by the municipality. A company called Human A/S bought the building and sold it to the extremist right-wing christian sect, "Faderhuset".

Faderhuset and their leader, Ruth Evensen have recently asked the municipal council of Copenhagen for a permission to demolish the house. The politicians of the city council will probably vote for a demolishion, because thy don't see the house as worth keeping, not for architectonical reasons, not even for historical reasons.

Please send a protest now!

To all groups concerning the preservation of Folkets Hus, Jagtvej 69, Copenhagen, Denmark:
The City Council of Copenhagen had their final meeting about this issue on Thursday the 8th of February, where they voted positive for a demolishion of the old Folkets Hus.
We think it is a shame and a total disgrace.
Please send a protest mail to all of the members of the following administration, and a letter to the Lord Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard and her fellows:

International Women's Day (8 March)


International Women's Day (8 March) is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.

International Women's Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men. In ancient Greece, Lysistrata initiated a sexual strike against men in order to end war; during the French Revolution, Parisian women calling for "liberty, equality, fraternity" marched on Versailles to demand women's suffrage.

The idea of an International Women's Day first arose at the turn of the century, which in the industrialized world was a period of expansion and turbulence, booming population growth and radical ideologies. Following is a brief chronology of the most important events:

1909

In accordance with a declaration by the Socialist Party of America, the first National Woman's Day was observed across the United States on 28 February. Women continued to celebrate it on the last Sunday of that month through 1913.

1910

The Socialist International, meeting in Copenhagen, established a Women's Day, international in character, to honour the movement for women's rights and to assist in achieving universal suffrage for women. The proposal was greeted with unanimous approval by the conference of over 100 women from 17 countries, which included the first three women elected to the Finnish parliament. No fixed date was selected for the observance.

1911

As a result of the decision taken at Copenhagen the previous year, International Women's Day was marked for the first time (19 March) in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, where more than one million women and men attended rallies. In addition to the right to vote and to hold public office, they demanded the right to work, to vocational training and to an end to discrimination on the job.

Less than a week later, on 25 March, the tragic Triangle Fire in New York City took the lives of more than 140 working girls, most of them Italian and Jewish immigrants. This event had a significant impact on labour legislation in the United States, and the working conditions leading up to the disaster were invoked during subsequent observances of International Women's Day.

1913-1914

As part of the peace movement brewing on the eve of World War I, Russian women observed their first International Women's Day on the last Sunday in February 1913. Elsewhere in Europe, on or around 8 March of the following year, women held rallies either to protest the war or to express solidarity with their sisters.

1917

With 2 million Russian soldiers dead in the war, Russian women again chose the last Sunday in February to strike for "bread and peace". Political leaders opposed the timing of the strike, but the women went on anyway. The rest is history: Four days later the Czar was forced to abdicate and the provisional Government granted women the right to vote. That historic Sunday fell on 23 February on the Julian calendar then in use in Russia, but on 8 March on the Gregorian calendar in use elsewhere.

Since those early years, International Women's Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women's movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women's conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point for coordinated efforts to demand women's rights and participation in the political and economic process. Increasingly, International Women's Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of women's rights.

I’ll let you draw conclusions as to who’s who in this scenario, since you all probably have some pretty hardcore opinions on the vanity of both Megan Fox and now-husband, Brian Austin Green.

"We're supposed to be desperately in love, like Sid and Nancy, John and Yoko ... Eminem and Kim," he said. "Though I tried as hard as I could to make her laugh and have fun with her. I think we got on pretty well." In one scene in a bar, Monaghan described a scenario where he has to roll up on another gentleman who is talking to Fox's character, and the actress asked what she should call him when he comes over and is about to hit the guy. "I said, call me Slim," he said. " 'Cuz that's who I am essentially. I was playing Slim Shady and trying as hard as I could to be Slim Shady."
