Fast Track, TPP and TTIP Should Be Scrapped!

Portland, 17.04.2015 22:49

How scandalous that communities and states should lose their sovereignty to corporations! In the TTIP, corporations can sue states for lost profits. The threat of a lawsuit can have a chilling effect on labor and environmental protective regulations. A parallel private arbitration system (ISDS) is created that privileges foreign investors over labor and the environment. Public interest legislation is called a trade barrier or indirect expropriation. [...]

The increasingly aggressive statements of those who welcome the planned agreement imply there are only a few ideologically wrong-headed conservationists, social state dreamers and eternal opponents of globalization who oppose the TTIP with their non-governmental organizations driven by a mixture of anti-Americanism and conspiracy theories. But that is wrong. Millions of people, Americans and Europeans, prominent and non-prominent, US congresspersons and German mayors, unionists from Philadelphia and consumer protectors from Marseille, Spanish entrepreneurs and Austrian academics see the TTIP as dangerous. [...]

Supporting the HWY 6 at Their Second Court Appearance Together

Santa Cruz, CA, 14.04.2015 22:50

The six UCSC students arrested and charged in association with the March 3 blockade of Highway 1 where it meets Highway 17 in Santa Cruz returned to court on April 8. As the six defendants and their attorneys made their second appearance as a group before Judge Denine Guy, a prosecutor indicated the District Attorney's office will not offer them a plea deal to reduce misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and creating a public nuisance. The Santa Cruz DA also desires a restitution amount of $19,000 be paid. Additionally, UCSC has suspended the students until the Spring of 2016.



New Report: Fumigant Pesticides Put Central Coast Communities At Risk

Santa Cruz, CA, 13.04.2015 22:49

A new report released by Californians for Pesticide Reform asserts that fumigant pesticides are an outdated, toxic technology that undermines soil health, and safe replacements are needed to grow food on the Central Coast of California. The report examines data that revealed cancer-causing chloropicrin is in the air where Monterey County children live and play, and shares monitoring results that confirm chloropicrin in the city of Watsonville's air poses an increased cancer risk, despite state required "safer tarps" and "buffer zones".



PORTLAND BOOKS TO PRISONERS NEEDS A NEW SPACE! Earn good Karma!

Portland, 12.04.2015 22:50

The Red and Black cafe that has been so generous to donate us a space is closed :-( and Books to Prisoners is in need of a new space. We would need about 200 or so square feet, in a dry basement, garage, or extra room in the house---also open to office space or space in a church, community room etc. Because we are a non-profit, the space could be considered an "in kind" donation for a tax write off.

Please CALL (503) 249-6343 if you might know of an available space. We would need the space twice a month for our mailing nights (first and third Weds of every month) and occasional access to drop books off. Close-in east side would be ideal but we are open to (most!)anything. Thanks!!

No New Animal Lab: March on the University of Washington!

When: Saturday, April 25, 2pm
Where: Meet in Red Square, University of Washington - Seattle campus
*CARPOOLS WILL BE ORGANIZED FROM PORTLAND

No New Animal Lab: March on the University of Washington!

The University of Washington and construction company Skanska are planning to build a new underground Animal Research and Care Facility. As they attempt to move forward with plans to bury the torture of thousands of animals underground, the No New Animal Lab campaign is organizing international opposition and calling on our movement to make sure this lab is never built. We have the power to stop this lab and save more animals from suffering and death at the UW.

On April 25th, join hundreds of people for a March on the University of Washington. Be a part of making history and showing the University of Washington that people from all over the country will converge on its campus to show opposition to animal research and dedication to stopping the new animal lab from being built.

The clock is ticking. The University of Washington and Skanska will continue to move forward with lab construction unless we stop them. The future of thousands of animals depends on us. The time is now to take to the streets and stop the lab.

Local Fracking Bans in California Face No Remaining Active Legal Challenges

Santa Cruz, CA, 09.04.2015 22:50

The only oil company to sue San Benito County over a local ban on fracking and other high-intensity petroleum operations announced on April 6 it has dropped its lawsuit, leaving the voter-approved ordinance in place. Citadel Exploration's decision to dismiss its own case means that local fracking bans in California face no remaining active legal challenges, despite threats from the oil industry.



Rally protest TPP outside Wyden and Blumenauer's office Wed.

Portland, 08.04.2015 22:50

WHAT: Portland Rallies Against Fast-Tracking the Trans-Pacific Partnership (worse than WTO and NAFTA)
WHEN: Wednesday, April 8 at 12:15 p.m.
WHERE: Courtyard outside the offices of Sen. Wyden and Rep. Blumenauer
911 NE 11th Avenue, Portland (map)

RSVP:  http://sc.org/ORStandsAgainstFastTrack

Questions: Contact Morgan Gratz-Weiser at  morgan.gratzweiser@sierraclub.org.

Together, we'll call on Senator Wyden and Congressman Blumenauer to stand with Oregonians to ensure trade agreements protect the environment. We must keep the pressure on our representatives to reject fast track legislation that seeks to rush the TPP and similar trade deals through Congress.

We'll have great speakers and some fun chants, and will deliver letters to the members. Please feel free to write a personal letter to the representatives telling them specifically why you are opposed to fast track. If you'd like, ride your bike (or bring it!) to show our representatives we're committed to a clean, green future!

Individuals with Direct Action Monterey Network (DAMN) and other supporters returned to the same location of the previous two demonstrations and faced increased pressure from business owners, who expressed more aggressively their desire for the group to either move the location of their gathering, or leave the downtown area altogether and stop protesting.

Maximus: Same Circus, Different Clowns

United Kingdom, 06.04.2015 22:49

On Monday 2nd of March 2015, there were demonstrations in over 30 towns and cities around the UK (plus Toronto) against Maximus, the US based health insurance corporation that has taken over the contract from the French IT Company Atos to administer the Work Capability Assessment on behalf of the Department Of Work And Pensions. Atos announced its exit from the contract in early 2014 following an intense period of direct action against the company by groups such as Disabled People Against the Cuts.

The day of action was timed to coincide with the first working day of the new contract, with the spotlight turned on Maximus as well as the continued use of Work Capability Assessments and the life-threatening consequences of the ongoing government attacks on the sick and disabled.

In central London, to the chorus of "David Cameron is a W*****" (YouTube) activists from DPAC hit the streets, taking direct action to block traffic and at one stage bringing traffic to a standstill on Victoria Street in the shadow of Big Ben.

The demonstrations across the UK on the streets were complemented with an online Twitter campaign using the hashtags #Maximarse and #ScrapWCA, the latter trending for a number of hours. This gave the opportunity for those unable (including through sickness and disability) to make it to demonstrations to vent their anger and frustation around the Work Capability Assessment and at a government hell-bent on targeting the sick and disabled.
