Lone Vet Report

Portland, 11.08.2011 17:34

News from Portland, Oregon -- We are in the streets in Portland, Oregon. There are small demonstrations in a number of places on Fridays and Saturdays and sometimes during the week. We stand the watch for all those who can't or are too fearful to hold a sign saying something about War and Peace.

Most protest/vigils are quiet but a few are noisy, to the annoyance of the business community. One protest on the Hawthorne Bridge now has a running battle with a restaurant that complains because we ring cow bells and the management of the restaurant does not want their outside customers disturbed while drinking and eating. I wonder what these people do with their heads when they hear that we are bombing over six countries and murdering civilians at alarming rates. How do they sleep at night knowing that America is the arms dealer of the world. We sell to anyone who has the money to buy war planes, tanks or ships. Sometimes we have a special sale on Wednesdays, buy one war plane, get your choice of free bombs or rockets. Is it not special that we rank number one in killing children and 34th in successful *child births?

California Prison Crisis Sparks Statewide Hunger Strike --interview w/ Critical Resistance

Portland, 11.08.2011 17:34

We discuss the recent statewide hunger strike initiated by prisoners at Pelican Bay State Prison. The strike is put in context, alongside a statewide grassroots movement calling for cuts in prison spending to address California's budget crisis, and a recent US Supreme Court ruling that calls for the reduction of California state prisoners by at least 30,000, in response to overcrowding.

Fur Free Friday

Portland, 11.08.2011 17:34

This year, join Portland Animal Defense League as we carry the torch and illuminate this abhorrent industry and its presence all throughout the Northwest. Although sporadic fur protests against department stores were carried out in the early 1980's, none employed coordinated campaigns or strategies against the fur industry, and, as a result, failed to create the intensity needed for successful protests.

Fur sales slumped in the late 80's-early 90's as increased pressure and focus on the fur industry heightened awareness about the cruelties of the trade. However, as a result of recent fur fashion trends starting in the mid 90's, fur sales have been increasing and topped over $11 billion worldwide in 2003.

Fur-Free Friday is one of the few nationally recognized days in the animal rights movement and involves numerous animal activist groups nationwide.

Summer of Unrest: an indymedia overview of the 'riots'

United Kingdom, 11.08.2011 07:53

The fiery unrest which ignited in Tottenham a few days ago, and which has rapidly spread through London and to other towns and cities across the country, has been largely and predictably condemned by politicians and the mainstream media as mindless violence, arson, theft and thuggery. While there is no denying that a number of the attacks have badly affected local people in local communities, some of whom have lost their homes and possessions and in one case their lives, blanket condemnation of those involved in the unrest is inappropriate and conveniently draws attention away from the context in which these events are taking place.

Britain's cities, towns and rural areas alike now boast record numbers of young unemployed people, often denied benefits, with few prospects, with many of those living in urban areas facing constant harassment by the police, especially if they happen to be black, with public services being cut all around them, and quite possibly with a growing mass awareness - thanks to movements like UK UnCut - of government support for super-rich corporations at the expense of the already impoverished. The fatal shooting of Mark Duggan and subsequent police lies might have been one trigger for the 'riots' in Haringey; another is almost certainly the decision of Haringey local authority to close the majority of the borough's youth clubs in a round of public spending cuts. In any event and whatever the triggers, the roots of the unrest are deeply embedded. No amount of repressive policing and overkill sentencing is going to solve this crisis, even if it succeeds in silencing dissent in the short term.

Chicago Federal Court Rejects Rumsfeld’s Attempt to Dismiss Torture Suit

Chicago, 09.08.2011 05:28

From the Newswire: "CHICAGO, August 8, 2011 ― A federal appeals court today rejected former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s attempt to dismiss an anti-torture suit against him. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Federal Judge Wayne R. Anderson’s March 2010 decision to allow the suit over Rumsfeld’s orders which allegedly led to the 2006 torture of two military contractors, Donald Vance and Nathan Ertel, U.S. citizens who were working in Iraq. The Appeals Court is now the highest court to have upheld the right of citizens to pursue an anti-torture claim against a federal Cabinet-level official." Read more

Boston: Emergency Protest in Solidarity with Chilean Students

Boston, 08.08.2011 21:36

Hundreds of Chilean high school and university students have been arrested during protests against neoliberal reforms and cuts to public education throughout the country. President Sebastián Piñera has responded by declaring the protests illegal and violently repressing the students and their supporters. Piñera is the first right-wing President of Chile since the fascist dictatorship of Pinochet from 1973-1990, and the repression faced by students looks more and more like the crack-downs of 35 years ago than a real democracy.

Jan Perry Proposes Waiver of Green Space Requirement for South Central Farm Land

LA, 08.08.2011 02:53

In an apparent attempt to make the 14-acre space at 41st and Alameda more attractive to developers, city councilmember and mayoral candidate Jan Perry is trying to waive the requirement that 2.6 acres be devoted to green space. Instead, seller Ralph Horowitz would pay about three million dollars to existing park services nearby.

A petition against this proposal is being circulated. People are encouraged to print out the petition featured here and collect signatures.

On Thursday August 4, the Harbor Commission in San Pedro held a public hearing to consider Perry's proposal (announcement).

Is Hydrofacking in New York State really a foregone conclusion?

Rochester, 07.08.2011 13:46

“Fracking is going to happen!” says Pittsburgh Authority at Rochester Medical School Talk.

Dr. Bernard Goldstein, an environmental health researcher and professor of public health at the University of Pittsburgh, spoke in Rochester about the potential health implications of Marcellus Shale gas development. The talk, sponsored by the University of Rochester Medical Center, took place on July 20th and was well attended by students, faculty and community members. “This fracking issue is the most contentious public health concern that I have seen in my long career, says Goldstein. I don’t take a position on it but I will say I think they are going too fast and are doing things that are not backed up by research. We don’t know the effects of much of what will occur.”
