Newly Squatted Park In Santa Cruz Gets Bulldozed

Portland, 09.12.2011 02:22

Friends, neighbors, and comrades gathered early in the morning on Saturday, December 3rd to transform a vacant lot on the south-end of Santa Cruz's main street into a vibrant community park. Folks worked throughout the day breaking up hunks of concrete, created five large raised garden beds (with plans for three more), filled them with soil, and planted dozens of plants. Curious people passed by asked questions, offered up complements, and even joined in. By the end of the day, approximately 40-50 people had helped in creating North America's newest squatted park. At the end of the day, a statement was released. It described the process of construction and explained the motivations behind it.

On Monday morning, a worker from Datum Construction came across the street into SubRosa (the anarchist infoshop) to say that if they knew the gardeners, let them know they only had a few hours to remove the plants before he bulldozed the newly erected park. He said he "didn't want to be the bad-guy," but he had orders from Datum Construction HQ to destroy the park.



Earl Blumenauer Holds Live Teleconference With Citizens Of Oregon 12.6.11

Portland, 09.12.2011 02:22

Early this morning I recieved a call from "US GOVERNMENT" which I recieved and was one of those chosen to attend a live town-hall teleconference with Congressman Earl Blumenauer. This live session was part of a move by congress to gather public perspective of decisions that are being made behind closed doors in Congress.

Here in this video podcast, I confront him on the issue of Occupy Wall Street and the local Occupy movement and stress the similarities of Blumenauers' ideology of taxing the 1% and the views of the 99%.

Occupy Our Homes: LA Joins Nationwide Day of Action Against Foreclosures

LA, 07.12.2011 23:30

RIVERSIDE - Tuesday, Dec. 06, 2011 – A coalition including Occupy LA, Occupy Riverside, ACCE, Refund California, and SEIU teamed up to defend two families who are facing eviction by sheriffs who protect the profits of JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo.

Fraudulent mortgages and a refusal by bankers to negotiate with families struggling to get by has resulted in a huge wave of foreclosures. As people are driven from their homes and neighborhoods, their homes are left empty for months and even years at a time. The banks and the capitalist class have shown over and over that they don't care about anything but their profits and their property.

Ana Casas Williams, her husband James, her mother, and her son reached out to community organizations for help in defending their foreclosed home in South Gate after Wells Fargo refused to modify the conditions of their mortgage. Ana has been fighting stage 4 breast cancer which forced her husband to quit his job to provide full time care for her.

Art D. and his family have been refused the opportunity to modify their mortgage by JPMorgan Chase on their home in Riverside. Art is still employed although the recession has cut into his ability to make the payments at the previous rate.

Today, people from around LA stood up for the right of all people to homes by rallying, speaking out to the media, and taking direct action by setting up their tents in the yards of people facing eviction in order to physically defend the families from the sheriffs who will come to evict them.

Video: Press Conference - Portland National Day of Action to Resist Foreclosure

Portland, 07.12.2011 15:28

Press Conference held in North East Portland as part of a National Day of Action to Resist Foreclosure.

The event was organized by We Are Oregon; Speakers include two homeowners whose families are facing eviction; a representative from Occupy Portland; a Catholic priest from a neighborhood church; and a neighbor of the family where the Conference was being held.

From the statement by Occupy Portland:
"Unsettle Portland is a grassroots organization, and a local affiliate of the Take Back the Land movement, dedicated to community control of land and housing.
We are here as part of the evolution of Occupy Wall Street as it shifts into supporting the people who are on the front lines of the premeditated mortgage crisis. People who are facing imminent eviction, even as thousands of houses remain empty in every major city."

DIY Community Garden and Park Destroyed in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 07.12.2011 05:07

Datum Construction bulldozed the community park on the corner of Spruce Street and Pacific Avenue in downtown Santa Cruz the morning of December 6. The garden is gone, but supporters hope that an even better, more vibrant park will be created in its place. Owners of the lot have plans, as of today, to install corporate landscaping, but community members aren't satisfied with that because the plans are to simply have a few small ornamental bushes next to parking spots, while the rest of the 40x60 lot will continue to remain barren.



Tennis pro John McEnroe Confronted for Privatizing Randall's Island

NYC, 07.12.2011 03:19

The Nation Magazine's favorite tennis champ, John McEnroe, has lent his name to Sportime Corporation, which in 2010 illegally (without land use review) acquired a large portion of public park land that had been used by East Harlem and South Bronx residents for over 50 years. McEnroe's Sportime Tennis Center now charges thousands of dollars to be a member of the private tennis club.

Occupation with Conviction, Occupying Walden

Rogue Valley, 06.12.2011 23:43

Medford, Oregon 12/5/11-
Occupation of the Second Congressional District in Oregon was a smashing success Monday. On a foggy frozen day, the sun broke mid-morning in Medford and even though the temperature stayed in the thirties 99 percent folk like you and me gathered. We occupied downtown Vogel Plaza and we occupied our Congressional District office, too. We all showed up to ask one unified question: W H E R E ' S * W A L D E N ?

The photos were all shot at Monday's Where's Walden? Occupation Rally downtown in Vogel plaza, or 1/2 block away at Representative Greg Walden's Medford field office. Occupation of the office landed six arrests for trespass. Pictures show support activities on the sidewalk out front, while other shots are inside Walden's office where occupiers sat-in from 11am until after 6pm refusing to leave unless Congressman Walden agreed to start having regular public town hall meetings around the district, something that he refuses to do. The sit-in act of civil disobedience ended with the six arrests by by the Medford City police. There are photos of each arrestee to end this photo memory.

It was an amazing day. Smashingly successful and peaceful too! Keep on reading to learn about other Walden Occupiers around Oregon's Second Congressional District. Eight were arrested in Bend about the very same time as were the Medford Six.

On Thursday, December 1st, 2011, Human Rights Activist Martina Davis-Correia lost her hard faught battle with breast cancer.  She was 44.  Martina was the sister of death row inmate Troy Davis, for whom she waged a twenty year battle to save his life and exonerate him from prison.  Troy was executed by the state of Georgia on September 21st.  Martina was able to turn a local issue into a global movement to save her brother's life and focus the worlds attention on the Death Penalty in America.  Both Troy and Martina mantained their claim of Troys innocence to the end, both with resolve and grace.  VIDEO | READ MORE

Photos From Portland Re-Occu-Fest March

Portland, 05.12.2011 05:28

A few photos of today's Re-Occu-Fest March, starting at Salmon Springs Fountain, winding through downtown Portland and finishing up at Shemanski Park.... The March began much later than scheduled, and left Salmon Springs in high spirits with no law enforcement in sight. I don't think that the march stuck with the advertised route, possibly because of the late start.

The crowd marched along the river and then headed into downtown Portland with the bike swarm in the lead. Though they immediately took to the streets, the marchers were extremely respectful of buses and the Max train, which, unfortunately, forced a break in the march at several occasions. There was absolutely no police in attendance, at least within sight of the March.

The energy remained high and gathered momentum as they walked up the hill to Shemanski Park, where folks spread out, some setting up tables and tents. It was only here at the Park that law enforcement showed their faces. Salmon and Park re-re-occupied at 11:19PM LINKS - from Occupy Portland Dec 3 Action; Occupy Portland is in Shemansky Plaza Park on SW Main street

Многие беларуские студенты на ура восприняли бы это событие, если бы о нем стало широко известно. Противников Болонской системы пока не наблюдается, как в свое время отсутствовали активные противники отмены льгот, повышения платы за образование и исключения студентов по политическим мотивам.
