after the eviction

DC, 07.06.2012 23:36

When we woke up on Monday morning, we had our eyes focused on pressuring Chase and Freddie Mac into negotiating a modification for Ms. Harris' mortgage. As a crowd began to rally at the DC offices of Freddie Mac, Ms. Harris and team of Occupy Our Homes DC members began a sit-in at the Chase modifitcation office. For more than two hours, Ms. Harris waited to meet with a manager. Chase called the police on OOHDC members, escorted us out of the building, and put the rest of the building on lockdown. Nearly 30 people rallied outside until Ms. Harris emerged to explain that Chase claimed no responsibility and that it's all in Freddie Mac's hands. We left, vowing to plan our next step in the campaign.



Protect Columbia River from Liquified Natural Gas

Portland, 07.06.2012 19:27

<b><u>Oregon Liquified Natural Gas to Hold Open House About LNG Export Plans</u></b>
<p>
Hello Everyone: As we've anticipated for some time, Oregon Liquified Natural Gas is ramping up its promotion of a plan to export LNG through Oregon. Oregon LNG refers to its project as "bi-directional," but we all know that Oregon LNG's new proposal is a clear bait-and-switch. In 2004, Oregon LNG argued that Oregon needed to import LNG from overseas. Now, Oregon LNG intends to export huge volumes of natural gas to Asian markets through rural Warrenton, Oregon, and our Columbia River.
<p>
On Tuesday, June 12th, Oregon LNG plans to hold an Open House in Warrenton, Oregon to discuss its plans. This Open House is not a FERC hearing. FERC does not plan to attend. Rather, Oregon LNG will likely use this Open House to promote its terminal and pipeline in one-on-one conversations with attendees. We encourage people to attend, to wear your red "NO LNG" shirt, to ask tough questions about LNG exports, and to inform your neighbors and friends about the threat that Oregon LNG poses to Clatsop County. Together, we can send a strong message that the people of Clatsop County, who successfully defeated Bradwood LNG, are ready and willing to fight Oregon LNG's export proposal.
<p>
<b><u>What:</u> Oregon LNG Open House
<br><u>When</u>: Tuesday, June 12th, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
<br>Where:</u> Gateway Masonic Lodge #175, 66 SW 4th Avenue, Warrenton, Oregon
<br><u>Who</u>: Oregon LNG is holding this Open House. It is not a formal hearing or a FERC event.
<p>
<br><u>Why</u>: <i>We should attend to be a visible presence of opposition. Oregon LNG is trying to pull a quick bait-and-switch and flip its project from import to export. While the Open House is being orchestrated by Oregon LNG, we can use the opportunity to talk to our friends, neighbors and attendees to get more people informed and engaged.</i></b>
<p>
<u>Looking Ahead:</u> <a href=" Columbia">http://www.columbiariverkeeper.org">Columbia Riverkeeper</a> and <a href=" Columbia-Pacific">http://columbia-pacific.org/">Columbia-Pacific Common Sense</a> will be holding our own informational meetings in late June, once we have more tangible information about Oregon LNG's new proposal. Stay tuned for more information about our event.

Grand jury cooperator in San Francisco

Portland, 07.06.2012 18:24

Active grand jury in San Francisco. At least 4 have been subpoenaed, with one known cooperator. Otessa Crandell has cooperated with the most recent grand jury witch-hunt, claiming to investigate an arson in Santa Cruz, CA that was never claimed by underground groups. The grand jury in reality is just harrassing local vegans. She doesn't deny her cooperation. She claims that she gave them nothing of substance, and they just asked about phone numbers from her cell phone call logs. It's unknown what they actually asked, and how this information will be used the federal prosecutors.

Cooperating with the FBI, in their guilt by association witch-hunts, is unacceptable. We need to support grand jury resistors, unify them, and help them resist together. Let's organize events that de-mystify the grand jury process.

Rally at the School Board to defeat the Knudsen Plan

United States, 07.06.2012 06:33

The Philadelphia School Reform Commission wants to impose a really awful plan that will make private contractors rich, but won't do much to help Philadelphia's students. The plan could very well do grave harm to, if not spell the end of public education in Philadelphia.

United States, 07.06.2012 06:33

"He went back to work today and this mama will never see her son alive again." --Mawuli Davis

The day after the grand jury decision not to indict  "Machine Gun" Luther Lewis, the officer who fatally shot 19-year-old Arriston Waiters, a meeting was held at Sakofa Church. The crowd of 40-50 filled the pews and responded enthusiastically with shouts like "that's right" and "teach" to those who addressed the crowd.  Speakers included Reverend Love, Reverend Derrick Rice, Jimoke from NCOBRA, Senator Vincent Fort, lawyer Mawuli Davis, AB Jahad, Reverend Dale Foster, and Reverend Derrick Boazman.  Arriston Waiters' mother Frieda and his Stepfather Russel also spoke.

Reverend Love said "the fight is not over" and encouraged nonpartisan voter registration and education, saying "where there is a police problem there is a mayor problem and a city council problem." read more

June 11 Circus in Eugene

Portland, 05.06.2012 15:41

Int'l Day of Solidarity with Ecoprisoners Eric McDavid and Marie Mason

On June 11 (at 11 am) we are going to hold a circus at the new federal courthouse in Eugene to mock the federal courts, to show that, "If justice is a circus, all of us are clowns." There will be jugglers, fire-breathers, stilts, music, lots of clowns and other performers. Come dressed as a clown judge or a clown cop!

BACKGROUND: June 11th began as an international day of solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoner Jeff "Free" Luers in 2004. At the time, Jeff was serving 22+ years. After years of struggle, Jeff and his legal team won a reduction in his sentence and he was released from prison in December 2009. But in the years intervening Jeff's arrest and release, the FBI had carried out a series of indictments and arrests in an attempt to devastate the radical environmental and anarchist communities. Two of the people caught up in this maelstrom of repression were Eric McDavid and Marie Mason... Marie Mason and Eric McDavid share the unfortunate distinction of having the longest standing sentences of any environmental prisoners in the United States. Please join us in an international day of solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, and other long-term anarchist prisoners on every June 11th.

Free Marie and Eric! Free all prisoners!

Olympia Police Station Attacked in Solidarity with St. Louis M24 Arrestees

Portland, 05.06.2012 07:18

Dearest St. Louis rebels, Hearing of the recent beatings and torture you endured while refusing the compliance your captors demanded is both beautiful and terrifying. More than anything, the image of repulsive swine punching in your face, holding a knives to your throats, choking you, and generally having a field day with your bodies derives an engulfing inferno of rage and malice; our mouths water for revenge.

Last night a police station was attacked to both lift your spirits and aid the healing of the trauma that was likely inflicted on you while in their clutches. This was also done in effort to encourage other devious plots in your honor. May the coming week (and beyond) be filled with calculated, vindictive, and well executed revenge.

No Oak Grove Walmart!!!

Portland, 05.06.2012 07:18

Portland Public Access program, "A Growing Concern," this evening will feature a discussion with citizens who are opposing a Walmart grocery store at the previous location of GI Joe's on McLoughlin Blvd.
List of 15 more stores currently planned for the greater Portland area.

NOGWAL: No Oak Grove Walmart</>

NOGWAL: A community-wide effort to build a better Oak Grove. We are your neighbors who say, No Walmart! Not here. Not now. We love Oak Grove and the vision of the MAP* plan that our community has developed over the last three years.

Our concern stems from what we have learned about the effects Walmart makes on local communities, their labor practices, their gender discrimination, ruthless business practices, their environmental policies - and their disregard for the plans our community developed over the last three years.

Never Alone Tour for Eric McDavid, Marie Mason &amp; long-term anarchist prisoners (VIDEO)

Portland, 05.06.2012 07:18

This past April we were able to meet up with the folks doing the 'Never Alone tour for Eric McDavid, Marie Mason & long-term anarchist prisoners'. We were really excited about this tour, as we believe prisoner solidarity and support should be the core of any movement of resistance. Since we like to film and make videos for all of you to watch, share and use as a resource, we offered to film the Eugene, OR tour stop for them so it could be put online. Here is a little background info explaining what the tour is about.

San Pedro: Science Center Endangered/Tongva Village Site

LA, 02.06.2012 04:58

Jacob Gutierrez, a Tongva, has a lot on his plate right now. The last science center in the LA Unified School District is "on the chopping block" due to budget cuts in education. (LAUSD originally had six.) This facility has been a resource for everyone in the community, especially children. It contains several gardens, consisting of over 80 native plants and fruit trees. Native wildlife is drawn there, including blue butterflies. There are also over 150 animals that children can visit, all rescues. Oftentimes they have been confiscated by the U.S. Government at the southern border and would have been killed were it not for the Center.

Just up the street is the site of Shwaanga (Ken Malloy Regional Park), one of the largest Tongva villages in pre-Spanish times, a site which has been suffering from pollution in recent centuries. In pre-European times, people would travel by boat from islands including Pimu (Catalina Island) and numerous inland communities via canoelike boats plying rivers, as well as different parts of the California coast. Among other things, Shwaanga was known for its fresh water. Now the water is heavily polluted and needs to be cleaned up.
