Police Union Responds to Good Case with Inaccuracies; Bars Indymedia Access

Rochester, 04.07.2011 14:47

On June 30, 2011, Rochester Indymedia was turned away from a police union press conference at the Locust club. The press conference was called to publicize the police narrative of what happened between Emily Good and members of the RPD on May 12 2011. Members of local media were invited to cover the event. Mike Mazzeo, Police Locust Club Union President, delivered the statement just 3 days after Emily Good's Obstruction Charges were dropped by the District Attorney. His statement is riddled with inaccuracies and attempts to muddle the facts of what is clear in the original arrest video.

Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project: Gaza and Beyond

DC, 03.07.2011 17:34

The Charity and Security Network held a forum at the National Press Club on June 21, 2011, exploring the ramifications of the Supreme Court decision in Holoder v. Humanitarian Law Project. This decision provides sweeping authority for the government to go after peace, aid and political groups under the charge of providing "material support" for designated terrorists. One of the key issues highlighted was the decision's effect on humanitarian assistance to Gaza, including the ongoing campaign of Gaza flotillas.



Ashland Stop for the Cuba Caravan

Rogue Valley, 03.07.2011 16:20

PASTORS FOR PEACE CUBA CARAVAN TO ARRIVE JULY

On Thursday July 7 the 22nd Caravan bound for Cuba, organized by Pastors for Peace, will arrive for an overnight stay in Ashland. This project of friendship and solidarity with the Cuban people takes US citizens and humanitarian aid to Cuba every summer, and provides a unique opportunity to experience Cuba and to discover what life is like in our neighbor nation. The Caravan advocates for an end to the fifty-year-old economic blockade of Cuba and for normalizing relations between the US and Cuba, with a US foreign policy based on justice and mutual respect.

Various segments of the Pastors for Peace Caravan travel through the US, stopping each night in a different city and gathering people and supplies bound for Cuba. They converge in Texas and then travel together into Mexico and fly to Cuba for nine days. Several Rogue Valley residents will participate this year, either leaving with the bus on July 8 or flying to McAllen, Texas by July 17.

The Caravan's arrival July 7 will include two buses and eight to ten participants from points north, including British Columbia. The event will be hosted by local supporters at the Presbyterian Church, corner of Siskiyou and Walker, Ashland. The social hour begins at 6, a pot luck dinner at 6:30, and a program about events in Cuba and the Caravan at 7:30.

The featured speaker is Alicia Jrapko, who fled her native country, Argentina, in 1976 during the military dictatorship. She first traveled to Cuba in 1994 with Pastors for Peace, and has been active since then in the Bay Area, supporting their projects and helping to recruit US students for the Latin American School of Medicine scholarship program in Havana. Alicia was instrumental in establishing the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five, which includes activists from the US, Latin America and Europe.

The public is invited; all are welcome. Music will be provided by the Modern Prometheus Jazz Company under the direction of Don Monjure.
Co-sponsors of the evening are Peace House, the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (Ashland), Jackson County Pacific Green Party and Rogue Valley Peace Veterans. For local information call 541-482-8915.

Lead informant in ALF / ELF Cases Sentenced to 5 Years

Portland, 30.06.2011 19:03

Infamous snitch Jacob Ferguson arrested on drug charges, sent to prison

p>From Voice of the Voiceless

Infamous snitch Jacob Ferguson arrested on drug charges, sent to prison

The man who wore a wire for the FBI and sent over a dozen people to prison for ALF / ELF actions is himself now going to prison. Jacob Ferguson was sentenced this week to 5 years for ?manufacturing, possessing and selling heroin?, according to court records.

Ferguson rose to infamy after becoming the lead informant in the ?Operation Backfire? FBI sweep. The arrests led to prison sentences for over a dozen people on arson charges for ALF / ELF actions going back almost 10 years. Three of those charged ? Joe Dibee, Josephine Sunshine Overaker, and Rebecca Rubin ? are still on the run.

His role in over a dozen arsons claimed by the Animal Liberation Front / Earth Liberation Front made him a valuable asset for the FBI. When he secretly began cooperating with the government in 2004 to send many of his former friends to prison, he accepted a plea bargain which called probation only and no prison time.

That ended this week when a recent drug bust finally led Ferguson to prison. He is also expected to receive a federal prison sentence in addition to his 5 year state sentence.

Ferguson sent people to prison for the following ALF actions (in addition to numerous other ALF / ELF actions):

We have just learned the Oregon Senate might vote TODAY on the creation of a new tax credit being pushed by an out-of-state venture capital firm.

3rd Annual Los Angeles Anarchist Bookfair

LA, 29.06.2011 21:10

This year's Los Angeles Anarchist Bookfair occurred on Saturday June 25 at Art Share L.A., a public space in downtown L.A.'s Arts District. (The event changes locations every year--last year's venue was Barnsdall Park-- but, of course, it always remains in L.A.) The event included information exchange vis-a-vis books and speakers, as well as art and food.

This year's speakers included “indigenous elders speaking about take-back-the-land struggles and resistance to a lot of colonial politics and institutionalized forms of racism that are implemented in Arizona as well as here in L.A.,” reported Liz, one of the organizers (as seen in one of the videos at the link below).

Also, “[T]here's a workshop going on about how to build an alternative economy,” said another event organizer.

She continued: “The Bookfair is organized by the L.A. Anarchist Bookfair Collective. It's a collective of different folks interested in putting the collective on for different reasons: some folks are artists, some folks are activists, some people are educators and coming together in a non-institutionalized environment to organize the event.”

For protesting on the county steps against Santa Cruz laws that make it illegal for the homeless to sleep at night, homeless activists Gary Johnson and Attorney Ed Frey were sentenced to 6 months in jail on June 10th. Bail was set for Ed Frey at $50,000. Their only act of civil disobedience was sleeping. Revealing the political nature of the draconian sentences, Judge Gallagher told homeless activist Gary Johnson that he "could get some sleep in jail" before they were dragged away in chains for their 6 month sentences.
