National Day of Action for Abortion Rights- PDX

Portland, 15.07.2013 05:37


MONDAY JULY 15 - 6:00PM
Rally for Abortion rights in solidarity with the women of Texas
Pioneer Square - Portland

The nation stands at the edge of a historic reversal. Hard won gains of the women's rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s are about to be turned back with devastating results for women across the country. Abortion, already a barely accessible right for most women, is now being made extinct as conservative politicians attempt to press their advantage in certain states in an opportunistic fashion.

But the problem we face is deeper. In Texas, the legislature has used every legal (and some illegal) trick in the book to make sure that the pro-choice majority is not heard. The current legislation under consideration represents some of the most draconian limits on abortion rights ever. And instead of allowing normal democratic procedures to resolve the issue, the legislature has relied on a rigged process to force the bill through. A few examples are worth mention: every procedural objection that was made to Wendy Davis's historic filibuster; the refusal to hold state-wide hearings to allow affected communities to testify about the consequences of the legislation; the intentional misreporting of how many people testified in opposition to the legislation; the years of gerrymandering which make it nearly impossible for the legislature to reflect the real wishes of the population; the organizing of "special sessions" to push through legislation.

The current legislation is too important to allow these deficits in the democratic process to go unchallenged. The bills in Texas would close down the overwhelming majority of clinics which provide abortions and thereby eliminate all of the ancillary services those clinics also provide -STD testing, family planning, health care. That some of these clinics are also the only places where low-income, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals are able to get health services means that this legislation will disproportionately impact the most vulnerable members of society.



High-profile strikes and lockouts offer an opportunity to reinvigorate local labor

Portland, 15.07.2013 05:37

Ongoing high-profile strikes and lockouts affecting machinists on Swan Island and dockworkers at nearby ports offer a magnificent opportunity, today in the Portland-Vancouver metro region, to reinvigorate the local labor movement and our overall society.

It doesn't take a huge leap of imagination or a degree in labor law to realize that every union in the region, police and fire workers included, needs to send solidarity teams to bolster the picket lines of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (I.A.M.A.W.) outside the Daimler Trucks North America facility on N. Basin Ave. and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (I.L.W.U.) at the United Grain Corp. facility at the Port of Vancouver.

Every day since July 1, I've biked and walked past the picket line manned by only a handful of I.A.M.A.W. strikers on Swan Island, stopping to chat and offer my wholehearted support while arriving at and leaving from my nearby low wage, no benefit, nonunionized security day job.

What I want to know is where are the Teamsters, where is the Service Employees International Union, where are the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, where are the American Federation of Teachers, where are the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, where is the American Postal Workers Union, where is the Oregon Nurses Association, where is the Amalgamated Transit Union, and where, oh where are the Industrial Workers of the World?

"An injury to one is an injury to all" remains as true today as when the iconic rallying cry of the militant I.W.W. Wobblies was coined in the 1920's.

There should be dozens, hundreds, of union members walking the picket lines in sympathy with their activist brothers and sisters to clearly show management officials that Cascadia workers are finally getting off their collective knees to stand up and demand better pay and benefits after years of givebacks and economic stagnation.

&quot;The Circus is in Town!&quot;

LA, 13.07.2013 05:49

July 10, 2013: Some one hundred people protested the Ringling Bros. Circus on opening night at Staples Center. Much emphasis was placed on cruel treatment of animals and separating them from their natural environments and families. (Objection to incarceration and training of animals is nothing new--although a recent DVD documentary called No Fun for Elephants has shed additional light on animal abuse with its undercover footage of elephants being brutalized right here in California. Excerpts of it have been played on KPFK (90.7 FM). Some footage can be seen on YouTube here and here.)

Activity books were offered to small children, many of whom took interest in them. Children also showed interest in large photos of animals being treated inhumanely. At least one family, consisting of a mother and three children, changed its mind about attending Ringling and decided to do something else.

Protests of Ringling Bros. circuses are happening all over. "PETA volunteers will go to every city that Ringling Bros. goes to," said co-organizer and Campaigns Manager for PETA Katie Arth, "whether you're in cities like Los Angeles and New York or Biloxi, Mississippi."

The Struggle for Land Sovereignty in the East Bay and Around the World

San Francisco Bay Area, 13.07.2013 05:48

The Gill Tract in Albany has been a battleground in recent years as the University of California's development plans have met repeated resistance from Occupy the Farm and others fighting for land sovereignty. The tract was first occupied and farmed in 2012, providing hundreds of pounds of free produce to local communities. This year, in the space of nine days in May, occupiers broke ground, establishing a new urban farm, and replanted the field twice. Each time the UC police ploughed over the seedlings. Currently, Occupy the Farm is launching a pressure campaign against Sprouts Farmers Market, a supermarket chain looking to build on the land.
