Solidarity and Support Needed at Huntington Lane Protest Camp

United Kingdom, 03.08.2011 08:28

The protest camp at Huntington Lane near Wellington in Shropshire, which has been protecting woodland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) against the ravages of UK Coal since March 2010 and preventing the building of a road which would give access to a second area for opencast mining, has been on eviction alert since court papers were served on 15 July and has issued a call-out and invitation for new people to get involved in defending the site. More people are urgently needed to stay on site ready to resist any eviction attempt, as well as people to visit for a few hours or days to show support and carry out solidarity actions.

Forest Defensers Lockdown In Oregon Dept. of Foresty Office

Portland, 02.08.2011 04:54

forest defenders lock themselves inside oregon department of forestry office in protest of new clear cut plan

August 1, 2011

Mollala, OR- As a culmination of the annual Trans and Womyn's Action
Camp, activists occupied the regional Oregon Department of Forestry office.
Three members of the camp have locked themselves together inside the
office using modified pipes. Currently the trio is refusing to leave
until the Oregon Department of Forestry revoke their support for the
2011 Elliott State Forest Management Plan.

Today is the last opportunity for citizens to comment on the plan.
Activists involved in the action criticized the plan for opening up
areas to logging which were previously off limits. They also
criticized the plan for increasing clear cutting to boost local
timber jobs while not making any decisive moves to regulate or even
monitor the large timber export industry which ships logs and jobs

Meredith Cocks of Portland, OR said, "It's absolutely devastating to walk
into the middle of a clearcut in the Elliott and know that after decades
of fighting for forest protection this sort of logging is still accepted
on public lands. This is some of our last intact coastal rainforest, a
precious place that deserves our respect, not to be decimated by the ODF."

Eviction Blockade Successful, At Least Until Tomorrow

Boston, 02.08.2011 02:21

Over 100 people gathered at 197 Normandy St. at noon to stand with Drusilla Francis. We chanted and sang and gave testimony. The constable summoned the police to arrest people blocking the door. The police, to their credit, asked the constable for papers showing he had the right to evict that day. He did not have such papers. The eviction was called off for today! As Melonie said in summation, this would NOT have happened without the boisterous protest we mounted today.

Dredging Up the Past on Police Union President Mike Mazzeo

Rochester, 01.08.2011 20:17

Police union president Mike Mazzeo is no stranger to police corruption, the violation of citizens' civil rights, or media attention. Back in the late 80s and early 90s Mazzeo was a vice squad officer with the Highway Interdiction Team—a squad that used to rough up and bust up alleged low-level drug dealers. For all of his trouble, he and five other officers—including the police chief—were federally indicted on 19 counts alleging police brutality, conspiracy to violate the civil rights of suspects, embezzlement, falsification of government documents, falsification of employee time cards and other corruption. While he and his four colleagues were acquitted, officer after officer—in both high and low places in the RPD—admitted to the same abuse of power that Mazzeo was charged with. In today's world, when one sees our bold police union president rattling off his rendition of events and forcefully grasping his podium at the Locust Club, it just makes good sense to hear everything he says "with a grain of salt."

One million deported by Barack Obama: immigration religious leaders and Congressman Luis Gutierrez arrested at White House

DC, 01.08.2011 04:07

July 27: Congressman Luis Gutierrez and ten immigrant rights activists and religious leaders were arrested at the White House, for protesting against mass deportations and incarcerations of immigrants, being executed by the Obama administration. Since Barack Obama took office in 2008, more than one million migrant workers and their families have been incarcerated and deported. Most of them had no criminal records, whatsoever. President Obama doesn’t intend to stop his repressive policies, thus really tough times are coming ahead for our immigrant communities. ONE MILLION workers, parents, students, veterans and children have been imprisoned and deported since 2008 in the United States by Homeland Security Department. Ice Total Removals

Marching with S.A.M.E. at the San Diego Pride Parade

LA, 30.07.2011 05:17

A lot of progressive Queers and Queer-friendly allies have written off the annual Pride events as overly commercial, corporate and mainstream. But that's not what it felt like to me when I marched with the San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.) in San Diego's Pride Parade July 16. In a mixed contingent that also included members of the Bradley Manning Support Group and the International Socialist Organization, I felt like part of a movement, participating in an island of militant political awareness that asserted the values on which Pride was founded that have largely got lost in the overall celebration.
