Рабы и тунеядцы или Кто есть кто в Беларуси?

Belarus, 10.07.2011 21:07

Государство постоянно стремится доказать нам, что мы должны быть благодарны за то, как мы живем: мол, и медицина у нас бесплатная, и образование, и для работы все возможности. Реальную ситуацию власти никак не комментируют: то, что все больше людей вынуждены обращаться в платные клиники или пользоваться платными услугами государственных больниц, то, что количество студентов-платников вот-вот превысит количество обучающихся за счет бюджетных стредств, а плата за образование постоянно повышается и т.д.
Люди смутно догадываются, что деньги на дороги, автобусы, фонари и больницы берутся из наших налогов, но все равно не чувствуют себя хозяевами в стране. Почему в Минске освещаются даже крыши домов, а в близлежащих городах фонари горят через пять, хотя налоги и минчане, и провинциалы платят одинаковые, мы обсудим как-нибудь в другой раз. Сегодня нам более интересно, чем еще питается гидра власти и куда любит тратить эти деньги.

Сегодня ситуация в стране такова, что нарушением закона…

Memetic Cascadia: A knowledge sharing course on building a contagious Cascadia

Portland, 10.07.2011 18:28

We will examine ways to transform the abstract idea of Cascadia, the bioregion, into a contagious idea associated with our regional identity. The class will consist of knowledge-sharing as well as creating a functional workspace from which to spread the meme of being "Cascadian." The intent of the class is to eventually become a "think tank." This course is FREE as it is part of Portland Free School. The goal is to create a bioregional awakening (Cascadia) that becomes widespread and very contagious and then create a "culture of active social change."

Time: Mondays (starting July 11th) 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Location: In front of Millar Library at PSU - [future locations TBA]

It's Criminal to Profile

Rochester, 10.07.2011 16:37

On June 27th, 2011, Rochester police chief James Sheppard held a press conference to answer questions about the unlawful arrest of local Rochester resident Emily Good while she was filming a traffic stop in front of her home in the 19th Ward in May of this year. During the conference, the chief maintained that his officer was not using racial profiling, but was instead using "criminal profiling" to determine if the black man in the traffic stop should be detained. Sheppard asserted that there was nothing wrong with criminal profiling and that the RPD would continue the practice with his support.

SW Oregon Proposed Pubic Land Privatization

Rogue Valley, 10.07.2011 14:27

Eco Advocates NW (formerly known as Cascadia’s Ecosystem Advocates) has been tracking and dogging the Oregon Department of State Lands and the Oregon State Land Board since a concerned citizen brought this privatization of Public Lands issue to us back in September of 2010.

Currently the Oregon Department of State Lands is proposing to privatize approximately 4,920 acres of Common School Fund lands throughout Josephine and Jackson counties in southwest Oregon. The Department of State Land website states that the auctions are to be carried out in 2012. The initial Josephine and Jackson land disposal plan was announced at the State Land Board meeting in December 15, 2010.

Astonishingly some of the land parcels proposed for sale by the Oregon Department of State Lands is ancient forests literally along the banks of the Wild and Scenic Rogue River which is visited by thousands of rafters, fisher people and travelers every summer.

The 334 Acre Galice #1 Parcel pictured here is directly across the river from the resort destination of Galice, Oregon. The state managed public land is located across the Rogue river at Galice Creek then proceeds NW 1 mile along the banks of the river just past Maple Gulch to the top of the mountain ridge above.

Eco Advocates Northwest has recently received some inside information that the Governor and the Department of State Lands is sick of hearing about the southern Oregon Public Land Privatization controversy. The rumor is that they are looking for an easy way out and are in the process of approaching federal agencies to acquire some sensitive parcels. However, it is now crucial to increase the pressure just a wee bit until this rumor becomes a reality. Eco Advocates NW is asking, especially those of you that haven't written yet, to write a letter to Governor Kitzhaber and/or other officials listed below and consider submitting a letter to the editor now while the controversy is still brewing.

In addition to asking for the cancellation of the privatization of all 4920 acres Common School Fund lands in Josephine and Jackson Counties continue to request that all entities involved especially the Oregon Board of Forestry be mandated to adopt a Code of Ethics. Also, urge for the initiation of an investigation of ethics violations in past Common School Fund land privatization transactions by Oregon Board of Forestry members.

Together we can make this a story with a happy ending and give us reason to celebrate the protection of these priceless public lands.

ALF / ELF Fugitive Justin Solondz Arrested

Portland, 09.07.2011 17:36

After three years in a Chinese jail, Justin Solondz is taken into US custody Justin Solondz spent years on the run before being arrested in China three years ago. This week, years in a Chinese jail, he was deported and taken into US custody at a Chicago airport. He is being charged with a role in two actions: the 2001 University of Washington Center for Urban Horticulture arson (claimed by the Earth Liberation Front), and the arson and attempted animal release at the 2001 Litchfield Wild Horse and Burro Corral in Susanville, California (claimed by the Animal Liberation Front).

Recently, Solondz's former girlfriend, Briana Waters, entered into a plea deal in which she agreed to testify against Solondz at his upcoming trial. A search for his name on the BOP Inmate Locator did not give any results, and his current jail address is not known. With several cooperating witnesses, he faces a hard legal battle ahead. I will be posting his jail address as soon as it is available. For now, give your silent support to the three remaining fugitives from this FBI sweep dubbed the "Green Scare case". They are somewhere out there tonight, continuing to be hunted as "terrorists" by the FBI. - Peter Young

Wobbly skit is a Tombstone Tales hit!

Rogue Valley, 08.07.2011 13:56

1911 IWW Free Speech History Told with Tombstone Theatrics

The early reviews are in and this year's Tombstone Tales in Ashland, Oregon puts the spotlight on a skit that is timely, educational and fun! The Wobbly Free Speech theatrics take place in the Ashland Cemetery (right next to Safeway) with a five minute-long skit that tells the story of what happened 100 years ago...

It was February, 1911 when determined men, over 100 members of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW, nicknamed "Wobblies") road the rails in boxcars south from Portland, Oregon. After being kicked off the train in Ashland by the Railroad Police the Wobblies in an extreme act of bravery took off on foot marching up and over the Siskiyou Mountains on the Oregon and California border.

Bound for Fresno, California to support striking farmworkers the Wobblies marched up to 150 miles in an incredible act of solidarity which is not going to be forgotten. So say's Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice who have embarked on a campaign to create a Wobbly Free Speech Monumentl to honor these brave men of one hundred years ago.

Freedom Flotilla II Hampered by Israeli Interference and Greek Coast Guard

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.07.2011 05:22

Thus far, working against the 2011 Stay Human Freedom Flotilla have been repeated threats and admonishments from the U.S. and Israeli governments, the pullout of the Turkish contingent, meddling from Zionist law firms, sabotage to the propellers of the Greek and Irish boats by underwater divers, and an order from the Greek government banning the flotilla from embarking on the journey to Gaza from Greece. At this point, it remains uncertain how many boats will be able to set sail for Gaza.

Friends of Simon have suggested that those who want to remember Simon go to their local arms factory, importer of Israeli goods or oppressor of workers and "do a vigil, noise demo or action. Have a beer. He would have liked that". On Monday Rossport Solidarity Camapigners dedicated their Blockade of Shell offices to Simon.

Portland Police Officer Dane Reister

Portland, 04.07.2011 21:17

Link to "Get to Know your Police Officers" page about Officer Dane Reister.
 http://g2kdanereister.tumblr.com/

On June 30, 2011, Officer Dane Reister, along with other police officers, responded to a call about a man harrassing kids at a park. The cops found a 20-year-old man some distance away. When they tried to approach him, he fled. Officer Reister fired 4 times at him with a bright-orange-colored shotgun that is supposed to be loaded with less-lethal "beanbag" rounds. Instead, live lethal rounds were loaded. As of this writing, the kid is in the hospital in critical condition and Officer Reister is on paid leave
.
Officer Reister is also the cop who took a video camera away from a citizen who was observing police officers approaching two men in downtown Portland. According to the Oregonain article, "on the nine-minute video, one of the officers can be heard accusing one man of being a drug dealer and the other a drug buyer. He repeatedly asks one of the men for his ID and to allow himself to be patted down. At one point, the officer - identified by Tabor as Reister - tells the man to back away. And when the man takes a step back, Reister takes two or three steps forward and shoves the man in the chest."

Officer Reister is also named in a lawsuit (MARBET v. CITY OF PORTLAND) alleging police misconduct at an anti-Bush rally in Portland that included firing rubber bullets at a crowd of protesters.

Seattle: Noise Demo in Solidarity with Pelican Bay Prisoners and Youth Prisoners

Portland, 04.07.2011 20:03

On the night of July 2nd, in solidarity with the hunger strikers in Pelican Bay State Prison, CA, a group of roughly 30 people equipped with a mobile sound system met in front of the King County Juvenile Detention Center in the Central District of Seattle.




On the night of July 2nd, in solidarity with the hunger strikers in Pelican Bay State Prison, CA, a group of roughly 30 people equipped with a mobile sound system met in front of the King County Juvenile Detention Center in the Central District of Seattle.

The police response to this demo was large, most likely due to the recent disturbances on Capitol Hill during the Pride weekend. Despite this, the group proceeded to blast music, bang on pots and pans, and make speeches through megaphones in front of the prison cells. At one point, every occupant in the cells along the southern end of the Detention Center was banging on the walls and windows of their cells, responding to the cheers and words from outside.


Instead of the normal oppressive routine of lights-out, the prisoners were able to spend the night acting wild, defying the terrified screws, and listening to the words of rebellion and freedom being blasted from outside. Once night had fallen, a large mortar firework was shot into the air, the green round exploding in the air over the Detention Center.

The event lasted for an hour and there were no arrests.

Towards the destruction of all prisons!

Solidarity with the Pelican Bay Hunger Strikers!

Text handed out and read aloud at demo:

On July 1, 2011 prisoners in the Security Housing Unit (SHU) at Pelican Bay State Prison in California will begin an indefinite hunger strike to protest the conditions of their imprisonment. The hunger strike is being organized by prisoners in an unusual show of racial unity, their five key demands are:



BMedia and friends Variety Show #3: Earth Day Inc.

Portland, 04.07.2011 20:03

EPISODE #3 of B Media's monthly variety show was inspired by GREEN CAPITALISM and connects indigenous and environmental struggles at Hood River, the Bank of America's financing of the Alberta Tar Sands, City Repair's Earth Day festival, the economic justice rally in solidarity with Wisconsin, and ties it together with Slingshot's radical history of April (the cruelest month), an unexpected visit by a cadre of Unemployed Superheros... and YouTube cat videos.


View episode here  http://blip.tv/bmediacollective/variety-tree-earth-day-inc-5288049

This episode explores the connections between environment destruction and the economic and cultural systems that enable it. Movements and actions by groups like Rising Tide North America, City Repair, the PDX Climate Justice Coalition and the alternatives they advocate for are contrast with the banking system and unchecked capitalism, the increasing atomization of American life, and the Tea party. Our goal was to highlight the people doing important work in our communities, and single out the elements distracting us from that work on a daily basis.
