Alan Graf's Press Conference Speech rebutted

Portland, 02.12.2004 19:29

Alan Graf's speech, copied to Indymedia, is full of misrepresentations. The plain fact is that the suit failed miserably to accomplish anything of real or lasting value.

The plaintiffs, with the exception of Lloyd Marbet, were satisifed with a cash payment and no changes in the Police Department policies and practices, nor were the guilty parties punished in any way. The litigants settled by using the tax payer's money and calling it done. Tax payer money isn't the problem; police brutality and poor decision making is the problem. This suit in no way effects either of the two. In fact, it simply reinforces the City position that it can buy its way out of any problem, and that criminal actions by City employees can be ignored.

Comment: No, the real problem we have is that people would rather whine than act creatively and intelligently, and sling mud and pick nits with the people who are already doing so. Have a little vision! Let me offer you a very realistic scenario how this judgment can be very useful: [ more comments ]



Books To Oregon Prisoners Grand Opening At Reflections Bookstore

Portland, 02.12.2004 19:00

The Grand Opening of a new community-oriented education project, Books to Oregon Prisoners (BtOP), will be happening on Saturday Dec 11th at the newly re-opened Reflections Mirror-Image Bookstore, at 330 N. Killingsworth, noon-4 pm. At the grand opening, members of the community can come in and order books to send to their friends and family members incarcerated in Oregon state prisons.

Until now, the only way to send books to people incarcerated in Oregon state prisons was by ordering them online through Amazon.com or Powells.com. For many working class people, this option is out of the picture. BtOP has solicited donations of brand new books from book publishers and distributors, and for a $5 suggested donation, anyone can select two books from our catalog and we will send them to an incarcerated friend or family member.

The Grand Opening of Reflections features an art show by former Black Panther Billy X, on Saturday December 4th at 6 pm.

Katz and Council humbled, but unapologetic about $300k A22 settlement

Portland, 02.12.2004 18:50

So, if you go to portlandonline.com, you can access the video archives of City Council meetings. Click on "Portland City Council 12-1-04 9:30AM" and you get to see, as the first item on the agenda, the Council discussing the $300k settlement for protesters injured by police during the A22 Bush Protest and March 20 Iraq War Protest.

Linda Meng, the City Attorney, is the first person to speak, and she reiterates that her office is recommending that the City settle for that amount. She also says she hopes this is the "last such case" in which protesters are able to band together and sue the City as a group. She alludes to "litigation strategies" her office has been developing to avoid this situation again, but demurs from discussing them "at this juncture", the implication seeming to be that such talk would be better behind closed doors. (That was my personal impression anyway).

Hunger Strike By Indigenous Peoples At United Nations

Portland, 02.12.2004 18:40

Today, November 29th, 2004, at 11 am, we, Indigenous Peoples' delegates, declare a hunger strike and spiritual fast inside the United Nations Palais des Nations in Geneva, during this 3rd week of the 10th session of the Intersessional Working Group on the United Nations Draft Declaration for the Rights on Indigenous Peoples.

We, Indigenous peoples' delegates from different countries, undertake this action, with the support and solidarity of Indigenous Peoples and organizations from around the world, to call the world's attention to the continued attempts by some states, as well as this UN process itself, to weaken and undermine the Draft Declaration developed in the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations and adopted by the UN Subcommission for the Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities in 1994.

Genocide By Omission: The arrogance and hubris of the Western medical establishment

Portland, 02.12.2004 18:38

Earlier this fall it was finally admitted by scientists and researchers at the university of Harvard Medical School in Cambridge Mass. that Linus Pauling was absolutely correct in his research and findings in the 1980's on the best way to combat AIDS. That way of course was to rebuild the immune system.

Pauling's credentials as a scientist are of the highest order yet when he presented his research on mega dose vitamin therapy and AIDS to the medical establishment in the United States and abroad in the 1980's the entire western health care industry went to work to discredit his findings. Creating rigged short-term studies produced in months to refute years of research the Pauling Institute carefully conducted.

Pauling and his fellow researchers had been under this onslaught from the Western medical establishment prior to their AIDS work.

Anti-War Activists Disrupt Victor Ashe Lecture at Polish University

Tennessee, 02.12.2004 08:27

Activists arrived at a public presentation given by former Knoxville Mayor Victor Ashe to confront him about US military action and repression of human rights in Iraq. Victor Ashe, who is now the US ambassador to Poland, was George Bush's roomate at Yale and, like Bush, a cheerleader. Ashe has close personal ties to the current Bush administration having visited him many times at his ranch in Crawford, TX. Bush has often refrred to the "special relationship" Poland and the US have in fighting the war in Iraq.

Santa Cruz City Workers Poised to Strike

Santa Cruz, CA, 02.12.2004 06:44

About 500 Santa Cruz city workers, represented by SEIU Local 415, are poised to strike Friday at midnight when their contract expires.

According to Leslie Scanagatta, Local 415's chief spokesperson, rising costs of health care benefits, and low wages, are key issues on the bargaining table. She points out that city employees have twice agreed to a voluntarily wage freeze, to help the city get through a financial crunch, and haven't had a raise since April, 2002.

Irwin Young, human resources director for the City, said, "we've been working dilligently to reach an agreement." If an agreement isn't reached, he says, "we can continue to bargain, or the union then decides to take action."

Talks between the parties will continue on Thursday, and Friday, but Scanagatta says at this point, she's not hopeful. "Local 415 members spent the day making picket signs, and are prepared for the worst."

Campaign launched to support the Lower Elwha Tribal Community in protecting the Tse-whit-zen Village

Portland, 02.12.2004 05:54

To repair the Hood Canal Bridge in Washington State the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), Washington State Department of Transportation (WADOT), the Army Corp of Engineers, and other governmental agencies determined that the site of the Tse-whit-zen Village was appropriate to construct a Graving Dock project to build replacement parts for the Hood Canal Bridge.

Wildcat Community Development, a not for profit grassroots community based organization, has launched a campaign in support of the Lower Elwha Tribal Community to protect the Tse-whit-zen Village. As of this time over 250 complete human remains, 700 partial remains, six longhouses, and over 5000 artifacts have been uncovered in the preliminary construction phase. It is time to say "enough is enough" to the actions of the State and Federal governments that seek to totally destroy this village by covering it with concrete and seawater.

The first step of this campaign was to launch an online petition. This will be followed up with website additions to include contact information for agency officials and other actions that will be taken to defend this village site and burial grounds from being totally destroyed to build Hood Canal replacement parts.

3rd National Day of Solidarity with Muslim, Arab, and South Asian Immigrants

San Francisco Bay Area, 01.12.2004 23:50

On Friday February 20th, a roving mini-rally thru San Francisco today marked the Blue Triangle Network's third National Day of Solidarity with Muslim, Arab & South Asian Immigrants. These communities have been the targets of mass roundups, indefinite detentions, and secret hearings, leading to deportation through the selective enforcement of "Special Registration.“ Families have been torn apart, jobs and homes lost. Neighborhoods continue to be raided by INS officers, thousands are still detained over minor visa violations, and many people have fled the United States in fear of being persecuted. Following a press conference in Chinatown, the mini-rally stopped in the Tenderloin and the Mission (Photos).

Que no precaricen nuestras vidas

La precariedad tiene muchas caras y nos afecta a tod*s, en mayor o menor mesura, seamos mujeres, inmigrantes, estudiantes, trabajador*s... Todos y todas somos precarias y como precarias decidimos rebelarnos. El cierre de empresas a causa de las deslocalizaciones es una realidad contrastable. Entre otras muchas cosas, lo que las empresas buscan es máxima producción con mínimos gastos. Sea o no la deslocalización una de las causas de la precarización de nuestras vidas, las cúpulas sindicales también ayudan a precarizarlas, pese a que muchas veces no puedan controlar hechos como los de la Phillips o los trabajadores de parques y jardines.

Por todo esto y más, la xarxa contra el tancament d'empreses i la precarietat tiene preparadas unas jornadas con una serie de actos y acciones entre el 2 y el 12 de diciembre:

:::Acciones descentralizadas:::

[1 dic] href="http://barcelona.indymedia.org/newswire/display/140870/index.php">Huelga profesorado interino de Catalunya [2 dic] Sant Andreu:::Sants y Gràcia:::Elx y Elda [3 dic] Ribes [Otros dias] Tarragona:::Cornellà

[9 dic] 19h mani por el centro, a partir de Portal de l'Àngel hasta el Fomento [10 y 11 dic] Encuentro a las Cocheras de Sants [12 dic] 12h Concentración a pl St Jaume. Açò si voleu ho podem traure i afegir-ho quan es penge a CD.

Team of Activists and National Lawyers Guild Attorneys Bring City of Portland to its Knees

Portland, 01.12.2004 23:27

Who's Streets? Our Streets!!!

So says the Portland Progressive Community as it takes to the streets time and time again to voice its vigorous dissent and dissatisfaction with the policies and practices of the Administration of George W. Bush--an administration that continues to torture prisoners, spit on the Bill of Rights, destroy the environment, lie to the American public, engage in an illegitimate war and exhibit a criminal disregard for the rule of law.

Despite how the police tried to portray the August 22, 2002 and March 2003 demonstrations as protestor riots, the truth has finally come out. It was the police acting in a criminal manner similar to the President they were attempting to protect. The actions of the Portland Police showed a blatant and criminal disregard for basic humanitarian principles and human rights in this town.

We won, the police state lost. Chalk a big one up for Portland's activist community.

This is the first time that we have seen any real police accountability in this town

Round two is next and we are ready.

Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb seeks Federal Court jurisdication in new Ohio case

Portland, 01.12.2004 18:11

Attorneys for Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb asked a federal court today to take jurisdiction of, and ultimately dissolve, a temporary restraining order issued by a Delaware County, Ohio judge attempting to prevent Cobb from seeking a recount of the presidential ballots cast in that county.

Cobb and Libertarian Michael Badnarik, who are jointly filing the recount demand, are named as defendants, along with their attorneys, in the restraining order sought by the Delaware County prosecuting attorney. The Delaware County judge issued the temporary restraining order without contacting or seeking any input from the candidates or their attorneys.

"This is an illegal and outrageous attempt to suppress our rights to participate in the democratic process. As a candidate, I have a right under Ohio law to demand a recount. If the Delaware County Board of Elections has a problem with that, they need to take it up with the Ohio legislature," said David Cobb.

read more >>Cobb & Badnarik file for recounts in New Mexico and NevadaDavid Cobb, the 2004 Green Party presidential candidate, today filed official requests for a recount of the presidential ballots cast in New Mexico and Nevada. As he did in Ohio, Cobb filed the requests jointly with Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik.

"The Green Party's dedication to protecting the integrity of the election process has led me to file for a recount in both New Mexico and Nevada. We want to ensure that every vote is counted and verify the accuracy of the electronic voting machines, particularly those which produce no paper trail," said David Cobb.
