Here on portland indymedia are two videos from the June 17 "Justice for Janitors and the Fight for $15!" event. A protest and rally with speeches and interviews on the steps of Portland City Hall, then the march to the Pittock Building on 10th street. This was a march and rally to demand a just wage for janitors, city workers and laborers in the city of Portland.

On Justice for Janitors Day 2015 (June 17), Janitors joined Portland City Workers, striking workers at Instafab and the fight for $15 in an exciting day of action.

Semi-annual PDX Police Review Board report shows amazing misconduct

Portland, 29.07.2015 22:50

ANALYSIS: Semi-annual Police Review Board report shows amazing misconduct, mixed discipline, little about shootings (July 2015)

After reading the January 2015 Police Review Board (PRB) report posted sometime about July 16, Portland Copwatch finds that the range of misconduct identified is astounding. We also are left with the impression that while some of the application of discipline was appropriate, others seemed to minimize very serious matters.

Mr. Paille and Chief O'Dea:

After reading the January 2015 Police Review Board (PRB) report (posted sometime about July 16 at ), we find that the range of misconduct identified is astounding. We also are left with the impression that while some of the application of discipline was appropriate, others seemed to minimize very serious matters [...]

Copwatch [June Meeting] Analysis

The June meeting wasn't as well attended as the May one, and the IPR and
CRC took way too much of the time explaining how the "Byzantine" system
works. The professional facilitator they hired ended up cutting off one
person who was trying to tell her story. I expect this time will be better
organized as a result.

Here again are some suggestions we (Portland Copwatch) put out before; lots more ideas can be
found in the Stakeholders report from 2010 and the original Mayor's Work
Group report from 2000 (which led to IPR being created)[...]



Humanist Hall Threatened by Complaints from Newcomers Next Door

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.07.2015 22:50

The Humanist Hall is being attacked by newcomers who live in condos built right next door only about ten years ago. The Humanist Hall have opened their doors for countless radical and under-served organizations over the past 75 years, yet now they are being labelled a public nuisance by the City of Oakland due to complaints from the new neighbors. An online petition calls on Mayor Schaaf to "encourage condo owners and renters to respect the social norms of the neighborhood - our neighborhood - that they have moved into.."



Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Fines Predatory Student Lending Practices; Churches and Synagogues Pray for Students Trapped in Debt‎

Boston, 28.07.2015 22:53

Synagogues and churches held prayer services for students as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau fined Discover Bank $18.5 million for illegal student lending practices. The bank must repay students $16 million, pay a $2.5 million civil penalty and reform its lending practices. The Bureau accused Discover of overstating the minimum amount due in billing statements, misrepresenting students' total interest payments and engaging in illegal debt collection practices. The penalty is the first of its kind by the Bureau against a student loan company. "This fine sends a strong message to companies that take advantage of students," said Eric LeCompte, executive director of the religious anti-poverty coalition Jubilee USA Network, which advocates for responsible student lending policies. "Predatory lending traps students in debt." This past weekend, 64 faith communities from 26 states prayed and acted for fair student lending policies as part of Jubilee USA's national interfaith "Jubilee for Students" prayer event. In 2012 and 2013, the event pushed congressional legislation to stop federal student loan interest rate increases.

Muwekma Farm Destoyed by City of Oakland and OPD

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.07.2015 22:49

For two months, the Muwekma Farm was located on the corner of 31st Avenue and International Blvd in Oakland. On July 9, the City of Oakland and OPD destroyed every single plant, raised bed, and bench. Muwekma Farm writes: We have no specific date for retaking the land, but when we do there will be another announcement. To those who desire a world free of environmental destruction and economic slavery, we would like to remind you that there is an inordinate amount of vacant land in the City of Oakland.



Oakland Activists Accused of Freeing Animals Are Charged as Terrorists

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.07.2015 22:49

The year 2013 was a busy one for animal liberation actions across the U.S., primarily at businesses that breed and/or sell fur. Tyler Lang and Kevin Johnson of Los Angeles recently pled guilty and currently await sentencing for a related charge of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA). On July 24, the FBI arrested two more animal rights activists related to the string of 2013 actions. Joseph Buddenburg and Nicole Kissane of Oakland were charged under AETA for 2013 actions. A call-out for support for Joseph and Nicole has gone out for their court appearance on July 28 at the Oakland Federal Courthouse.



Man Arrested and Convicted for Using Washable Chalk at Police Protest

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.07.2015 22:49

On June 16, 2014, during a protest against police brutality and recent police shootings in Fresno, Brian Sumner used chalk on the Fresno Police Department Memorial, writing phrases such as "FPD = Guilty", "Badges Don't Grant Extra Rights", and "Who do you call when the police murder?" He was arrested. On July 17, 2015, Brian was found guilty of vandalism and later sentenced to one year of informal probation, 50 hours of community service, and $250 in court fees and restitution.

Нет работы? Низкая зарплата? Проблемы в личной жизни?! - 'Нация' нам не поможет!

Belarus, 25.07.2015 22:21

Мы представляем вам перевод текста, написанного Энгри Воркерс Ворлд на сайте либкома. Хотя в тексте и есть отсылки к Великобритании и специфическим для региона проблемам, мы считаем, что для Беларуси текст имеет довольно большую ценность: сейчас в стране мы наблюдаем рост национализма, с другой стороны огромное количество рабочих выехало за границу в поисках лучшей жизни. Данный текст подымает вопросы, с которыми сталкиваются многие рабочие по всему миру.

Общество, в котором ‘прибыль’ – основная движущая сила, а разрыв между богатыми и бедными продолжает расти, крайне нестабильно. С 2008 года мы живем в состоянии мирового кризиса: после спасения банков и сокращений расходов выросла безработица, людям приходится переезжать в поисках работы, и все больше людей претендует на все меньшее количество рабочих мест. Но мы также увидели по всему миру рост борьбы против сворачивания ‘социального’ государства, против ‘коррумпированного правительства’ и против…
