Undocumented Youth Organizers Violently Attacked at the San Ysidro Border in California

DC, 01.08.2013 06:04

Last Sunday at noon, undocumented youth organizers from across California were holding a peaceful demonstration at the San Ysidro border. Among the group were youth, small children, and elderly men and women. Suddenly and without warning, San Diego Police, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and private security officers reacted violently against the protesters. They lunged forward, ramming the crowd with movable iron fencing. Officers also attacked a group of six individuals who were engaged in a peaceful sit-in: violently pushing, pulling, and dragging them across the ground. One officer started drilling his knuckles into the temple of 28-year-old demonstrator Jonathan Briebriesca (a long-time immigration activist who was part of the sit-in), inflicting intense pain on him as he lay on the ground.

Camp Cascadia's Ongoing Fight to Defend Bull Run

Portland, 30.07.2013 05:38

On the evening of July 26, 2013, Camp Cascadia - the ongoing Friday night occupation of Mt. Tabor - hosted a public occupation of Mt. Tabor, in the name of fighting EPA Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2). Frequent honks and screams of "Thank yoooooooooouuuuu!!!" from passing cars proved to be a supportive, albeit disruptive, occurrence. Though occasionally drowned out by well-intended but bro-ish hoots and hollers emanating from 60th Avenue, the 35 citizens who attended the occupation discussed a wide array of issues.

Methane and the risk of runaway global warming

The sediments and bottom water beneath the world's shallow oceans and lakes contain vast amounts of greenhouse gases: methane hydrates and methane clathrates (see Figure 1). In particular methane is concentrated in Arctic permafrost where the accumulation of organic matter in frozen soils covers about 24% of northern hemisphere continents (see Figure 2a) and is estimated to contain more than 900 billion tons of carbon.

Occupation of Post Office Thwarted

Portland, 30.07.2013 05:38

July 26, 2013 - Dozens of protesters rallied and attempted to occupy the Main Post Office on NW Hoyt this afternoon. The protest against postal privatization was thwarted by a heavy presence of Department of Homeland Security police, Postal Inspectors and a half dozen postal managers standing inside the post office lobby. Senior plant manager, Lisa Shear, herself a target of the protest, came out to warn activists that she would have them immediately arrested if they stepped foot inside the lobby.

Protesters carried signs saying "Save Postal Mail Handling, call Lisa Shear, 503-294-2500." Jamie Partridge, a retired letter carrier with Portland Communities and Postal Workers United (PCPWU), confronted Shear outside the post office, demanding that she meet with community members to justify her sub-contracting decision. When Shear refused, Partridge told the senior manager that the PCPWU would not back down.

"Postal truckers, mail handlers and mail processing clerks are losing their jobs to profiteering, private corporations," declared Jamie Partridge. "We are protesting the privatization of the people's postal service. We oppose the destruction of family wage, union jobs and the delay of the people's mail. We intend to disrupt this attack on our communities."



Fifth Canaan Protest Village Built on Annexed Palestinian Land

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.07.2013 05:59

On July 27, the Canaan protest village was built for the fifth time on annexed Palestinian land in the middle of the illegal Gosh Ezion Colonial block next to the illegal colony of Migdal Oz. The nonviolent protesters stayed in the tent on their land for around an hour and a half, before the Israeli occupation soldiers tore it down, violently repressing the demonstration.



New California Water Grab for Fracking and Agribusiness

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.07.2013 05:59

Governor Brown has proposed building two massive $50 billion water tunnels to divert the Sacramento River to corporate interests in the Central Valley. Fracking opponents say the peripheral tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta could play a role in increasing fracking in California, so that oil companies and huge agribusinesses can make even more profits.

Killing the Post Office on the Altar of Privatization

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.07.2013 06:01

The Berkeley Post Office is being sold off as one of the first steps in the privatization of the Postal Service. Despite what seems to be the end of the road in terms of administrative challenges, a three-pronged local attack is being launched by various Berkeley community groups, Save The Berkeley Post Office and Strike Debt Bay Area. The first is a medium term threat of a lawsuit to block the sale. Secondly, a direct defense of the Berkeley Post Office begins on Saturday, July 27th, at 1pm. The third is an attempt to rezone the space the Berkeley Post Office sits on so that it cannot be used for private, commercial enterprise.

Corrected Billboard &quot;Applauds&quot; NSA Prior to Congressional Vote

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.07.2013 06:01

Following the unauthorized release of information by Edward Snowden on June 7, the NSA has faced an unprecedented wave of public scrutiny. On July 23, the California Department of Corrections (CDC) "apprehended, rehabilitated and discharged" a billboard in San Francisco, one day before a U.S. House of Representatives vote that would have curtailed the NSA's surveillance inside the United States. On July 24th, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on an amendment to a military appropriations bill that would have eliminated funding for the agency's vast phone data collection. The amendment was narrowly defeated by a margin of 205 to 217



Civil Liberties Advocates Prepare to Make a Stand Against Domain Awareness Center

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.07.2013 06:01

The Domain Awareness Center started as a nationwide initiative to secure ports by networking sensors and cameras in and around the facilities. The Oakland DAC has ballooned into a surveillance program for the entire city. As planned, the center would integrate computer dispatch systems, gunshot detection microphones, license-plate readers, crime mapping software, stationary video cameras, private alarm detection programs, Twitter feeds, news feeds, other alerts, and eventually it could feature facial recognition. Civil liberties advocated intend to make a stand against the program at the Oakland City Council meeting on July 30.



Fight Against Camping Ban Continues

Portland, 28.07.2013 05:39

We waited and waited and about 0900 the police approached and Jim announced he would not move voluntarily and I just said, "I'm with Jim." I had my USS Independence hat on and a jacket that says, Navy and Peace?Ha! The police did not want to arrest two old guys who were willing to give up some of their liberties so that others have a chance at what we once knew as "Democracy."

So, off we went to the big house, the justice center for processing and booking, my wife did not know I was going to push the issue, so she was not going to be happy. We were allowed to walk with the two police who were friendly and professional and very uncomfortable about arresting us. We were taken inside the entrance and told to wait on a bench and the police would get things started inside and be out in a few minutes. After about an hour we were given some bottled water and told to wait. We waited and were not handcuffed, could walk out anytime we wanted, it was a strange arrest. I was watching my oxygen and it was getting near the red zone and that is not good...

White Castle Tree-Sit: A Conversation in the Canopy

Portland, 26.07.2013 05:38


How long have you been up here, and what can you tell me about being here?

I've been up here almost a month, and it's different everyday. The most interesting thing about being up here is that trees work in vertical ecosystems, as you climb you are going through areas of the forest most people will never see in their entire lives. Living at the top for such an extended period helps you understand the subtleties of life here. I never thought I would care this much about lichen.

What wildlife have you seen?

Deer visit the bottom of the tree multiple times a day. One is a mama deer with two fawns. There lots of little birds that are excited about the traverse networks. The mountain beavers rustle around and communicate at night. When I turn my headlamp on at night there are tiny white moths that try to perch on my nose. We hear owls almost every night.



Largest Prisoner Rights Protest in California History Ongoing

Portland, 26.07.2013 05:38


Earlier this month, a group of prisoners in the Pelican Bay Supermax facility just south of the Oregon border organized the largest prison protest in California history. At the time, it was reported that an estimated 30,000 inmates in two-thirds of California's 33 prisons had opted to refuse meals in a mass hunger strike. And it's still going on.

On June 20, 2013, prisoners held in solitary confinement at Pelican Bay State Prison Security Housing Unit in Oakland, CA announced their plan to embark upon nonviolent peaceful protest on July 8. According to the Prison Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition (PHSSC), a group committed to amplifying the voices of prisoners on strike, prisoners had maintained since January that they would be willing to starve themselves unless the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) agreed to negotiate honestly about prisoners' demands, "the heart of which mandates an end to long-term solitary confinement."

Prisoners' demands have been represented in five core points:

  • End group punishment and administrative abuse
  • Abolish the debriefing policy, and modify active/inactive, gang status criteria
  • Comply with the US Commission on Safety and Abuse in America's Prisons 2006 Recommendations Regarding an End to Long-Term Solitary Confinement
  • Provide Adequate and Nutritious Food
  • Expand and Provide Constructive Programming and Privileges for Indefinite SHU Status Inmates
