Portland, 14.02.2012 21:05

A decent turnout for Occupy Portland's "No War on Iran!" rally & march today in downtown Portland. How many US cities have held a similar event? Not many, I'd guess.

We will probably have more of these marches before long.

"No More War! Feed the Poor!"

Drei Tage der Wut

Germany, 14.02.2012 15:21


"Drei Tage der Wut", so wurden die Aktionstage gegen die brutalen Sparmaßnahmen der nicht gewählten griechischen Regierung genannt und es besteht durchaus die Möglichkeit, daß sie nach dem Wochenende weiter an Schärfe gewinnen werden. Im ganzen Land kommt es dazu noch zu Besetzungen von Rathäusern. Fakultäten, etc. und mindestens 1500 Gefangene beteiligen sich an den Kämpfen, außerdem finden in mehreren Orten wilde Streiks und Betriebsbesetzungen statt. Allein in Iraklion auf Kreta demonstrierten 15.000 Menschen.

International Day of Solidarity with Leonard Peltier

LA, 14.02.2012 04:32

Saturday February 4, 2012 was an international day of solidarity for political prisoner Leonard Peltier. A call was put out for demonstrations in front of federal buildings world-wide. Such an event occurred here in Los Angeles in the proximity of the downtown Federal Building and was well-attended. Leonard Peltier, who has been wrongfully imprisoned for 35 years, has received little exposure in the mainstream media. (Although, good documentaries have been made about him.)

"He's been in prison for over 30 years for a crime that he did not commit; his health is extremely bad," said Corine Fairbanks of AIM (American Indian Movement) Southern Cal, who was involved in two of the three events on February 4. "It was wonderful to see people going out of their way to participate in these events. I believe we definitely need to continue to educate people, especially young people, as to who Leonard Peltier is. I think there's a concentrated effort made by various governments for us to forget who he is. When I say educate, I'm saying that people need to be aware of not only who he is and the sacrifice he and his family have made being that he's a prisoner of war, but people also need to put more pressure on President Obama, put more pressure on the U.S. government for his release."

The charges against Peltier have been deemed illegitimate by Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and many others. Peltier has received six Nobel Peace Prize nominations. His activism includes selling his paintings, proceeds of which have benefited the Lakota people.

Unlike Mayor, AIDS Activists Face Serious Sentences for Civil Disobedience

DC, 13.02.2012 20:12

Last year, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray went to jail when he and forty others committed an act of civil disobedience outside the U.S. Capitol in order to highlight the District of Columbia’s inability to spend its own tax dollars as it chooses. Also on that day, April 11, a dozen activists were arrested outside the office of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who proposed cuts to HIV/AIDS funding, as well as to the District’s needle exchange program. The group which included Mayor Gray and six sitting D.C. councilmembers has received light sentences, mostly amounting to no more than $50 fines. The HIV/AIDS activists, however, are facing more serious charges. Audio

Ruckus at the State Land Board Tuesday February 14

Portland, 12.02.2012 16:17

Will you be our valentine? In October, Governor Kitzhaber approved a plan that will nearly double the annual clear cut in the Elliott Rainforest, starting this year. On the 14th, the first land board meeting of 2012, the Governor will also approve the privatization of over 1,000 acres of public forest land in Southern Oregon. Privatization will leave the fate of sensitive wildlife in the hands of ravenous timber barons.

Cascadia Forest Defenders are heading to Salem on the 14th to confront the State Land Board--Governor Kitzhaber, Secretary of State Kate Brown, and Treasurer Ted Wheeler-- about their direct hand in the destruction of Oregon's public forests.

Tuesday Feb 14 7:30am until 12:00pm Oregon Department of State Lands Office, 775 Summer Street, Salem!

OCCUPY ATLANTA AND TAKE BACK THE BLOCK SHUT DOWN CHASE BANK; 8 OCCUPIERS ARRESTED

United States, 12.02.2012 07:58

Today, February 10th, 2012, Occupy Atlanta and Take Back the Block sat in at the Chase Bank located in the Edgewood Retail District. This action is part of a larger campaign against Chase Bank in getting the deed back from Chase to the Pittman family. Carmen Pittman, the granddaughter of the late Eloise Pittman, was arrested along with seven others. This was the first time--since the occupation movement shifted its focus to foreclosure--that a homeowner was involved in direct action. They are now known as the Chase Eight.

Eloise Pittman was given a predatory loan on a home that she and her family have lived in for over 50 years. She passed away in November, and her family is facing eviction. Since December 6th, 404 Glen Iris has been occupied in an effort to stop eviction. read more & video

Trade Justice Roadshow: Corporate Globalization &amp; the Trans-Pacific FTA

Portland, 11.02.2012 15:26

The Trans-Pacific FTA is being negotiated behind closed doors between a dozen countries throughout the Pacific Rim. Journalists, most Members of Congress and the people most likely to be impacted by these negotiations are barred from reviewing the U.S. proposals, but approximately 600 corporate lobbyists certified as official "citizen advisers" have regular access to both the negotiating documents and the negotiators. Join us as we learn more about this pact; about the impact of past trade deals on our communities; and to send a message to Senator Ron Wyden and other elected officials that we will not accept another business-as-usual trade pact that offshores jobs, reduces the tax base and puts a downward pressure on the wages and benefits of jobs that are left.

Wall Street Excess and Main Street Distress: the Apple Connection

NYC, 11.02.2012 08:51

Ever since the beginning of the current global economic crisis, the focus of both critical analysis and public odium has been speculative capital. In the populist narrative, it was the breathtaking shenanigans of the banks in an atmosphere of deregulation that led to the economic collapse. The “financial economy,” characterized as parasitic and bad, was contrasted to the “real economy,” which was said to produce real goods and real value. Resources flowed into speculative activities in finance, resulting in a loss of dynamism in the real economy and eventually leading to credit cutoff at the height of the crisis, causing bankruptcies and massive layoffs.



Reflections from Monday night's Oakland solidarity march

Portland, 11.02.2012 08:51

From an arrestee:

On Monday night there was a march in Portland in solidarity with Occupy Oakland's call-out for a day of action against police brutality and arrests. The description for Portland's march specifically called for a respect for diversity of tactics including a black bloc and nonviolent direct action. Unfortunately the actual event proved much less tolerant to this diversity of tactics - people utilizing black bloc tactics were physically assaulted by other marchers on multiple occasions, and scapegoated for the 10 arrests the police made.



Prop 8 Ruled Unconstitutional

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.02.2012 05:38

California's Proposition 8 ban on same sex marriage was ruled unconstitutional by a three member panel of judges from the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. Judge Smith dissented. The panel majority stated that California voters violated the 14th Amendment of the Federal Constitution when voting for Prop 8. San Francisco's City Attorney stated that officials are getting ready and changing marriage forms, but that until the stay is lifted same sex couples in California still cannot marry.



Anti-Occupy legistlation introduced before the City Council

Unanimous Voice Opposes New Jail at Champaign County Board

United States, 10.02.2012 13:17

Another crowd of people showed up for a second week to oppose plans for expansion of the Champaign County jail. Several individuals spoke during public comment. Among them were:

Mikhail Lyubansky, who writes and teaches about restorative justice, said, "Jail is just one strategy, not the only one" to public safety and called on the County Board to look into alternatives to incarceration.

Peter Campbell of the GEO Solidarity Committee said, "To argue that we should expand a jail in order to treat prisoners better is perverse: any public official who makes this argument is trading on the lives of the most vulnerable in our community for their own political gain."

Chris Evans spoke about the history of the public safety quarter cent sales tax, passed by voters in 1998. The sales tax ought to be brough back to voters, he said.

Meeting with Chris Hedges

Chris Hedges has and continues to make very valuable historical critiques of both the Democratic and Republican parties. But his strategic options for Occupy Wall Street are fundamentally flawed. Here's why.

DC, 09.02.2012 07:00

This is an important debate on Letters and Politics w/ Mitch Jeserich, KPFA, between Chris Hedges and Kristof Lopaur of Occupy Oakland, in response to Hedges article, "Black Bloc: The Cancer in Occupy" Audio of debate Both sides debate what appeals to a "broader audience" versus "alienating people." Some of this sounds familiar and was hashed out in previous anti-globalization debates re property damage and diversity of tactics. They appear to agree on how to look at "militancy". And they both are trying to answer where to go from here, the role of the Democrats, thinking strategically.
