Starving for Justice-CA Prisonners Still Need Support

NYC, 27.07.2011 23:35

After three weeks of refusing meals, the prisoners at Pelican Bay started accepting food through their cell doors. It is certainly not a defeat. The prisoners' hunger strike allowed mass media and people around the USA to acknowledge the horror of solitary confinement, a major human rights abuse that needs to be stopped throughout the prisons industrial complex. Prison spokeswoman Terry Thornton says more than 400 inmates remain on hunger strike at the California State Prison in Corcoran, more than 100 at the California Correctional Institute in Tehachapi and about 29 at Calipatria State Prison.

Activists blockade Elliott State Forest in Coos County

Portland, 27.07.2011 18:26

From a media release: Early Tuesday morning a number of activists with Cascadia Forest Defenders, and Cascadia Earth First! unfolded a series of road blockades in the Elliott State Forest, located in Coos County, closing access points to timber sales along the west fork of the Millicoma River. The blockades consist of an array of Tree-sits and ground level locking devices. The activists are prepared to block logging in this sensitive eco-system for as long as necessary.

The sales are all slated for clear-cut logging, and are areas of native forest that have never before seen a chain saw. They exist on steep slopes where erosion from logging threatens to further damage Salmon habitat, as well as devastate already dwindling numbers of protected species such as the Marbled Murrelet and the Northern Spotted Owl.

"The Oregon Department of Forestry's 2011 Implementation Plan aims to increase clearcutting in the Elliot from 500 acre to 850 acres per year," says Meredith Cocks of Cascadia Forest Defenders. "The clearcutting in the Elliot is the worst in the state. They would never allow cuts like this on federal forest." ... "Some of the biggest trees in the state and some of the last native forests are on the chopping block here in the Elliot. Oregonians would be horrified if they saw the wholesale massacre that happens in this public lands year after year," says Ben Jones of Cascadia Forest Defenders.

Resist the Dale Farm Eviction

United Kingdom, 27.07.2011 08:32

On 4 July 2011, some 90 families at Dale Farm, the UK's largest Traveller community, were hand-delivered a final notice of eviction giving families until midnight on 31 August to abandon their homes, or face their entire community being bulldozed. The central government and Basildon Council have set aside over £18m for the eviction battle that could last three weeks. It will be the biggest clearance of its kind, involving the ploughing up of 54 separate plots created on a former scrap-yard purchased by the Travellers ten years ago.

Urgent Call-out for Support: Supporters are urgently needed to help the community resist the eviction. Come to the camp for one of the activity weekends any Saturday between now and the end of August, and join Camp Constant from 27 August.

The Pink Ruler Boys, The Parking Violations Bureau, and a Tale of Corruption...

Rochester, 27.07.2011 02:21

I took in my somewhat crumpled ticket. It's taken me awhile to decide how to handle my anger over this petty bullying. Finally, with some good advice from Rochester Police Accountability Coalition friends, I pleaded not guilty and asked for the supportive deposition in the case so I could see how the cops had written their complaint. A hearing time was set for this afternoon and I was surprised to be called up in a matter of minutes. As you can see on the paper they handed me, the case was dismissed. "Good news!" the clerk exclaimed. Not because it was unjust. Not for illegal selective reinforcement. Not because the chief understood that his men were scoundrels, intimidating citizens doing nothing more than questioning injustice.

But because they wanted to hide the truth.

Solidarity and Action for Tim DeChristopher sentencing hearing

Portland, 26.07.2011 20:40

On July 26th, climate activist Tim DeChristopher will be sentenced at the Salt Lake City federal courthouse - after being found guilty of 2 federal felonies for peacefully disrupting an oil and gas lease auction. By raising his bidder paddle that day, Tim actually shed light on the illegality of a rushed auction, clearly a parting gift from the Bush administration to the fossil fuel industry.
Yet during his trial, Tim was was never allowed to tell the jury about the illegitimacy of the auction or about his attempts to raise the funds to pay for the land he had won. Furthermore, he was strictly forbidden from even mentioning climate change and the moral imperatives motivating his action!

Tuesday, July 26 · 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Pioneer Courthouse Square
700 SW 6th Ave in Portland

 http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=139708356112577

General information about Tim Dechristopher at:
 http://www.peacefuluprising.org/climate-trial

Tim DeChristopher has been found guilty of two felonies by a jury that
wasn't allowed to hear his defense. He has ignored his legal team's
advice and remained outspoken about why it was necessary to stop an
illegal auction of our public lands to the fossil fuel industry. He
has used his platform to call others to action; to remain united and
powerful in the face of intimidation; to follow his lead.



&quot;Scleroderma? Yes, I know something about it.&quot;

Portland, 26.07.2011 17:17

More often than not, news of local scleroderma people in any Oregon newspaper is found only in the obituaries.

Unlike most of us, I know more about scleroderma than I ever desired or imagined. This autoimmune disease that touches an estimated 300,000 in America alone comes in two forms, localized and systemic, and generally afflicts four times as many middle-age women than men. Children, however, are not immune. [...]


Scleroderma affects everyone differently. My wife Fay has lived with the misery and pain of this disease for the past 20 years, manifesting itself in several ways, [...]


Scleroderma also means Fay has to avoid direct sunlight, as well as being hypersensitive to hot and cold extremes. Gloves are a constant, even during the summer when air conditioning gets really cranked up in many public venues. [...]

Although the Oregon chapter's volunteer activists regularly have to work through their own health challenges, they rarely tire or fail to remain optimistic. Only a few weeks after her surgeries, my wife Fay found the strength to meet with US Congressman Earl Blumenauer as part of an awareness team effort. Perhaps the most striking chapter example, though, is that of Maria Rivelli of Portland, organizer of the chapter's "Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma" benefit walk set for this July 30 in Multnomah Village and Gabriel Park.

Archive.org blocked by Multnomah County Library internet computers

Portland, 26.07.2011 17:17

Think it could only happen in Red China? Think again.
If you're not familiar with www.archive.org you should go there and look around. Every resource you can imagine for free.

I just went over to the Gresham Branch of Multnomah Library and tried to get on www.archive.org like I've been doing for years and got the message that the site was blocked by their "Commercial Filter".

NO. I did not forget to the check the NO FILTERING on login (Which should not have mattered anyway). Brought it to the librarian's attention, a pretty computer literate man, and showed him the problem. He was stumped and got his supervisor and she was stumped also. The said they would look into the problem. We will see what we will see and I will let you know the results later.

My concern was that if there is anywhere left for freedom and speech and information, it's archive.org. I told the librarians that they too should be concerned and suggested take a look at archive.org when they go home and see if they can think of a reason for it being blocked.

Banner Drop In Solidarity with Seattle Anarchists

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.07.2011 07:12

Surf City Revolt writes: "There is something deeply troubling about the events in Seattle over the past couple of days. 26 comrades, anarchists of all kinds, were arrested. The first night was in what seems to be a coordinated attack by the police during a social gathering at a private residence. The second in a solidarity noise demonstration in which friends and comrades of those arrested the night before stood strong outside of the jail their friends were stuck in, making noise to show that those locked behind bars were not alone."

Prisoners' Hunger Strike Solidarity March in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 25.07.2011 22:24

On July 23rd, about twenty people rallied and marched in downtown Santa Cruz in solidarity with prisoners at Pelican Bay who have ended their hunger strike and declared it a success. Their act of refusing to eat for four weeks has put the issues of torturous isolation units and California's debriefing program in the international and national media, boosted a growing movement for the rights of prisoners, and is unifying prisoners of different racial groups for a struggle against their real and shared enemies: the unfair policies and practices of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

Report back for : Portland demonstration for the Spanish 12!

Portland, 25.07.2011 07:37

Report back for the demonstration that happened 7/23/11 as part of the International Day Against Repression of the Animal Rights Movement.

Yesterday in Portland, 14 activists came out to show their solidarity with the Animal Rights Activists in Spain on the International Day Against Repression of the Animal Rights Movement. Since we do not have a Spanish Consulate, we had a demonstration and did outreach in Pioneer Square, the city's centre. We handed out hundreds of fliers and talked to the public about the recent arrests and repression of the activists in Spain. Overall we had a great response.
In Solidarity!

For the past year there has been a lack of discussion throughout the body of the Portland anarchist community. Without the intensity of events to propel us toward gathering and communicating we have let our cohesion whither and return to a state of disinterested and fractional friend groups. This meeting is being called to reaffirm our interest in a broader anarchist community, and cooperation within it.

Fairford Air Tattoo - Scarring for Life

United Kingdom, 24.07.2011 20:09

Gloucestershire's skies were darkened again by the Royal International Fairford Air Tattoo as some of the world's worst climate criminals and human rights abusers compared their best killing machines. This is an event about the glorification of everything that a civilised society should feel repelled about. Despite this, virtually every single newspaper, TV and radio show lavished it with praise. In so doing, they justified the entertainment budgets that the military industrial complex lays on at our expense.

Nineteen year-old Kenneth Harding was approached by San Francisco police officers doing fare inspections on the Muni platform at Third and Palou on Saturday, July 16th, 2011. Within a half block of running from police through a plaza, he was shot down on Oakdale Street and left to bleed to death as police offered no medical assistance and crowd-control police arrived to hold back a growing mass of angry residents well before any emergency paramedics reached the area. Numerous gatherings, marches, rallies, and vigils have challenged SFPDs evolving version of events and protested police who continue to kill with impunity.
