Candlelight Vigil to Support Bradley Manning
Friday, December 16th 4:30 til 6pm
Downtown Ashland at the Plaza

After 560 days of confinement the Military has finally announced the pretrial hearing for PFC Bradley Manning. The hearing will commence on December 16th at Fort Meade, Maryland.

Coordinated Actions Shutdown West Cost Ports

United States, 15.12.2011 12:57

Heeding the call of Occupy Oakland, which called for a shutdown of west coast ports in response to the brutal eviction of occupy encampments nationwide, and in solidarity with exploited port workers and truckers, activists across the coast shutdown various port terminals.

Oakland: Occupy Oakland called for the December 12th West Coast Port Shutdown, "because we believe it is time the occupation movement begins to work together to carry through coordinated, pinpointed actions. We want to disrupt the profits of the 1% and show solidarity with those in the 99% who are under direct attack by corporate tyranny." In particular, the demonstrations were in solidarity with longshoremen, port workers and truck drivers.

Since there were attacks by police on demonstrators in other cities, including Seattle, San Diego and Houston, Occupy Oakland made good on its promise of solidarity, and extended the port shut down into the next shift at 3am. Occupy Oakland successfully shut down the Port of Oakland for three consecutive shifts.

Portland: Hundreds of Occupy Portland protestors, activists and workers blocked entrances to shut down Terminals 5 & 6 around 6 AM today. Shortly before 8 AM, protestors cheered when they learned that Port of Portland officials had already shut down the terminals, and that the ports in Oakland had been closed. However, according to Mike Gardner, ILWU Local 8 in Portland, ILWU workers had been sent home without pay by Port officials.

Los Angeles: In solidarity with expolited port workers and truckers, about 500 militant occupiers and their friends shut down Terminal J of the Port of Long Beach, the home of SSA Marine, an investment of the criminal enterprise Goldman Sachs and the main stakeholder of the US government. The marchers were eventually split off from each other by the Los Angeles Port Police. However a group of 300 to 500 people successfully blocked a road that led to one of the SSA piers for a few hours causing traffic snarls and the like.

An Open Letter From America's Port Truck Drivers On Occupy the Ports

Portland, 14.12.2011 14:30

We are the front-line workers who haul container rigs full of imported and exported goods to and from the docks and warehouses every day.
We have been elected by committees of our co-workers at the Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle, Tacoma, New York and New Jersey to tell our collective story. We have accepted the honor to speak up for our brothers and sisters about our working conditions despite the risk of retaliation we face. One of us is a mother, the rest of us fathers. Between the five of us we have 11children and one more baby on the way. We have a combined 46 years of experience driving cargo from our shores for America's stores.

We are inspired that a non-violent democratic movement that insists on basic economic fairness is capturing the hearts and minds of so many working people. Thank you "99 Percenters" for hearing our call for justice. We are humbled and overwhelmed by recent attention. Normally we are invisible. Today's demonstrations will impact us. While we cannot officially speak for every worker who shares our occupation, we can use this opportunity to reveal what it's like to walk a day in our shoes for the 110,000 of us in America whose job it is to be a port truck driver. It may be tempting for media to ask questions about whether we support a shutdown, but there are no easy answers. Instead, we ask you, are you willing to listen and learn why a one-word response is impossible?

Bellingham Successfully Blockade Railway in Solidarity with West Coast Port Actions

Portland, 14.12.2011 14:30

On December 12, 2011, an autonamous group, in solidarity with the West Coast Port Blockade, successfully shut down a BNSF railway. The flow of commerce headed for two of the blockaded ports, Seattle and Vancouver, was effectively stopped. This action was in solidarity with the Bellingham community's fight against earth-destroying industries including the struggle against the Gateway Pacific Coal Terminal. We are in solidarity with #Occupy and union actions from San Diego to Anchorage. Our allegaince to oppressed humans and non-humans is foundational to our struggle.

We draw inspiration from the five-hundred + years of ongoing Indigenous resistance to the corrupting agents of colonization. We recognize that we are living on stolen land, and that the railway industries have always facilitated genocide against the native peoples of this land through land theft, displacement, and habitat destruction. In the coming months and years, we call upon communities from the Powder River Basin to the Pacific Coast to take direct action against SSA Marine's proposed Gateway Pacific Coal Terminal. Only through sustained and coordinated community opposition and direct action, can we permanently disable this arm of the capitalist machine.



No Execution for Mumia: 30 Years after a Police Shooting, Abu-Jamal Backers Vow to Free Him from Life in Prison

United States, 14.12.2011 13:44

The mood was both celebratory and angry among a 1000-plus overflow audience packed into the balcony space of the Constitution Center in Philadelphia on the evening of Dec. 9. The crowd, surely the largest to attend an event in support of Abu-Jamal in years, had thus come both to celebrate the end to the death threat facing the veteran journalist and world-renowned symbol of America’s obsession with state murder, and also to demand that he not instead be “left to rot” in a regular prison for the rest of his life.

Photos of Shut down West Coast Ports/Occupy Action

Portland, 13.12.2011 16:37

Hundreds of Occupy Portland protestors, activists and workers blocked entrances to shut down Terminals 5 & 6 around 6 AM today. This was a collective effort by the Occupy movement to shut down "Wall Street on the Waterfront" on the west coast.

Hundreds of Occupy Portland protestors, activists and workers blocked entrances to shut down Terminals 5 & 6 around 6 AM today. This was a collective effort by the Occupy movement to shut down "Wall Street on the waterfront" on the West Coast including ports in Seattle, Tacoma, Longview, Anchorage, Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego. This action was meant to show solidarity with ILWU and longshore workers in Longview and the other port cities on the west coast in their fight against corporate bosses, including Goldman Sachs, for the right to organize, and for fairness, safety and real democratic workplaces. However, protestors in Portland had agreed at planning meetings prior to the action to allow workers and vehicles to cross the picket line, if they chose to do so. On Monday morning, a few trucks and cars were allowed to pass, including trucks delivering supplies for Millbank Materials, after the general manager talked to protestors and convinced them that his company was not doing any business with the ports.

Shortly before 8 AM, protestors cheered when they learned that Port of Portland officials had already shut down the terminals, and that the ports in Oakland had been closed. However, according to Mike Gardner, ILWU Local 8 in Portland, ILWU workers had been sent home without pay by Port officials.

A Witness for Troy Davis: a Legalized Lynching

DC, 12.12.2011 19:13

In fact, in the United States, black people of African descent, or rather those born in this country and whose first language is English, comprise an estimated 12.2% to 13% of the American populace. However, black males make up about fifty percent of the American prison population and, as of January 1, 2011, about 41.8% of America’s total death row population. […] In Maryland, where black males make up about 14% of the state population, and where the total black population constitutes no more than about 28% of the state populace, the total prison and jail population equals about 23,285 people, with about 77% of that number being black. In the meantime, Maryland’s death row imprisons five men, 80% or four of whom are black. Similarly, in Virginia, where black people constitute about 20% of the state’s population, we make up about 68% of the state’s prison and jail population of about 35,564. Furthermore, black males, who constitute about 10% of Virginia’s population, make up at least 45.4% of the condemned on Virginia’s death row. more

5 июля 2011, офисы Labège PJJ (Юридическая Защита Молодежи) были перевернуты вверх дном и разрисованы в знак протеста против участия данной организации в помещении молодых людей в тюрьму. В то время, как PJJ плачется о плохих условиях для своей работы в детских тюрьмах, вскрылись факты избиения детей и подростков заключенных детских тюрем, которые патронирует эта организация, бойцами специальных подразделений полиции.

15 ноября 2011, в Тулузе (Франция), семь домов, часть из которых были сквотами, были атакованы и обысканы сотней полицейских. Компьютеры, телефоны, книги, плакаты и личные вещи были изъяты. Семь человек были задержаны, еще четверо были допрошены и отпущены в этот же день. После 32 часового полицейского задержания четверо из задержанных были арестованы по требованию мистера Сука, местного магистрата.

Video: Bark Appeal for Comments on Jazz Timber Sale

Portland, 10.12.2011 20:04

Mt. Hood National Forest has released a Preliminary Assessment (PA) for the Jazz Timber Sale and comments are due by Monday, December 19th.

The Jazz Timber Sale is proposed by the Forest Service to log 2,000 acres in the Collawash Watershed, the most geologically unstable watershed in Mt. Hood. The sale would require 11 miles of roads that have been previously decommissioned to be re-opened to facilitate logging and has prevented still more miles of roads that are damaging water quality and aquatic habitat from being decommissioned while the Jazz Timber Sale has been in the planning stages.

All citizens of the United States may comment on activities which take place on public land
Comments on the Jazz Timber Sale are due by Monday at 5:00 on December 19, 2011. To send a comment, go to Bark Jazz Timber Sale Action Page

In Portland,OR, 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. [Read Report]

In Atlanta, some Occupiers disrupted the auctioning of foreclosed homes using drums, whistles, harmonicas, bullhorn, clapping hands, and shouting. For most of the auction the protestors were so loud that firms representing banks were unable to effectively do business. [Report & Video] Occupiers also set up tents and held a press conference at a home facing foreclosure that has been owned by the same family since 1953.  O.A. plans to stay on the premises as the family fights to save their home.

Charges against Chicago activist Pat Hunt dropped; city attorney admits arrest &quot;just practice for G8/NATO&quot;

Chicago, 10.12.2011 07:25

On October 8, 2011, Chicago activist Pat Hunt was arrested over two alleged ordinance violations during the Chicago grassroots protest over the 10th anniversary of the war in Afghanistan.

On December 6th, the City of Chicago dropped the charges against Hunt. National Lawyers Guild attorney Jeff Frank said that the violations were simply a cover for harassing protesters, and Hunt was targeted because she was the signatory of the protest permit application. Indeed, an attorney with the city even admitted: "You know, this is just practice for G8/NATO." Read more
