Palo Alto Bans Vehicular Dwellers

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.08.2013 05:59

On August 5th, Palo Alto's City Council passed a ban prohibiting people from dwelling in their vehicles. Violation of the ordinance, which will take effect in 2014, can result in a misdemeanor charge with a fine of up to $1,000 and possible jail time of 6 months. Before the council's decision dozens of homeless advocates staged a protest in front of City Hall, then took turns addressing the council in chambers. They screamed out "shame!" when the council voted 7 to 2 to enact the ban.



Nez Perce, Idle No More, Rising Tide Blockade Highway 12 to Stop Megaloads

Portland, 08.08.2013 05:38


Nearly 150 members of the Nez Perce Nation were joined by Idle No More, Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), and others in a blockade of Highway 12 in Idaho for three hours late last night to stop a megaload carrying tar sands equipment.

While most people stood on the edges of the road to support the blockaders, the manifestation included about 50 people on the Highway stopping traffic, and was the longest blockade since the beginning of the megaloads shipments.

J29 - Nonviolent Direct Action Shuts Down First US Tar Sands Mine in Utah

July 29th - Utah: This week activists converged at PR Springs, site of the first proposed tar sands mine in the United States. Three people had locked themselves to heavy machinery in order to prevent the progress of road construction, and it was determined that work was stopped for the rest of the day when workers had been sent home. This is the first mass action against what is slated to be the first tar sands mine in the United States. One banner hung from a halted backhoe read "If you build its, we will come. " Uintah County Sheriffs responded, however no arrests were made.

"The proposed tar sands and oil shale mines in Utah threaten nearly 40 million people who rely on the precious Colorado River System for their life and livelihood, " said Emily Stock, a seventh generation Utahn from Grand County, and organizer with Canyon Country Rising Tide. "The devastating consequence of dirty energy extraction knows no borders, and we stand together to protect and defend the rights of all communities, human and non-human, " Stock said.

Portland, 07.08.2013 05:38

We'll visit the recently revived Polallie Cooper timber sale--one of a series of large-scale logging proposals currently planned for Mt. Hood's north side--and we'll see firsthand why cutting down our recovering forests threatens watershed health, wildlife corridors and scenic values throughout this popular recreation corridor. We'll also hike a section of the beautiful Tilly Jane trail, learn about the ecological, edible and medicinal uses of the area's local plants, and talk about what you can do to help protect Mt. Hood National Forest.

Patriotic Correctness: the cover-ups of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Portland, 07.08.2013 05:38

This is a repost of an article originally published to portland indymedia in March 2002, in conjunction with the Hiroshima Flame Interfaith Pilgrimage. [For voluminous coverage of that event in audio, photos, and text, see portland indymedia's special "dharmawalk" page, here.] This article, which is drawn from the book, "Hiroshima in America: Fifty Years of Denial", shows how the media and government have covered up the full story of the U.S. atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, then and since. Lessons from this historic episode are applicable to the current "war on terrorism" even more so now than when the article originally appeared. Reposted to mark Hiroshima Day: August 6.

MBTA Hikes Averted, But Taxes Raised in New State Budget

Boston, 06.08.2013 06:13

Reposted from http://cradleoflibertynews.org Bostonians dependent on public transit will be spared a second MBTA fare hike, just one year after a 23% fare increase. On Wednesday, July 24, the Massachusetts State Legislature approved a new budget, including safeguards, promoted by rider and worker groups, for public transit users. After public protests against last year’s MBTA fare hikes, a variety of community organizations and unions have pressured politicians to protect the millions of riders who rely on public transportation. As Steve Annear reports in Boston Magazine, “(a)ccording to the language in the latest transportation reform proposal on Beacon Hill, (future fare) hikes… would be limited to just 5 percent—if needed—and could only come up every two years as a means of bringing in new revenue to pay off the T’s lingering debt problems.” This is great news for riders, most of whom are working class, suffer as their wages lag behind inflation, and often need public transit to get to work.

Voz campaign to keep the MLK Jr. Worker Center

Portland, 06.08.2013 05:38

Voz is a worker's rights education project that protects basic rights and provides education for day laborers in Portland. In 2008, the organization opened the MLK Jr. Worker Center as an initiative of the City of Portland to increase the safety and equity of the Central Eastside Industrial District. It has since become an important community institution, as it has decreased public safety concern now that less people congregate on the street to look for work and disrupt area businesses.

The center also provides accountability to employers and sets a minimum wage of $10 per hour (possibly $12 currently) to protect workers from exploitation. The MLK Jr. Worker Center has generated over 16,000 jobs for Portland area day laborers. Voz's 5-year lease on the center ended in June 2013 and the property can be sold as early as December per their month-to-month lease contract starting in July. Mobilizing our community around a permanent home for this center is urgent!

Voz is building community support from area business owners, employers, allies, individuals and unions. Please join them in their efforts to ensure a permanent home for the MLK Jr. Worker Center.

Sussex Village tells Cuadrilla to Frack Off

United Kingdom, 05.08.2013 06:12

Join the ongoing resistance at Balcombe

Attempts by Cuadrilla Resources to begin exploratory drilling for gas at Balcombe, West Sussex on a temporary licence that expires in September have met with strong resistance by locals and environmental activists from around the country who have come together for The Great Gas Gala. The start of drilling, for which Caudrilla has a very small window, has been significantly delayed by the action in spite of excessive and repressive policing, a camp has sprung up, support by locals for direct action is reported to be over 80% and the resistance continues. Planned events at the camp include a 'meet the locals' tea party on Sun 4 August, a day of artistic resistance on Sat 10 August and a 'Gas Gala' on Sun 18 August.

Seattle Journalist Threatened with Arrest for Taking Photos; Vows to Take Action

Portland, 05.08.2013 05:39

For more than two decades, King County Sheriff's Officer Patrick "K.C." Saulet has been able to keep his job despite a string of sustained complaints that prove he is a thug, a bully and a genuine asshole.

So it's no wonder he was the first cop to approach a Seattle journalist Tuesday and threaten him with arrest for having the gall to take photos of a group of cops surrounding a man in typical intimidating fashion.

Not to be outrivaled, Seattle police officer John Marion then approached the reporter and threatened to harass him at work for daring to ask questions about Saulet.

But Dominic Holden, reporter for Seattle's weekly newspaper, The Stranger, did not allow those two to deter him from publishing his photos and his article. In fact, it empowered him to file official complaints against the two officers and vow to keep readers informed of the developments of those complaints.

Here is how he described yesterday's encounter in The Stranger:

From 20-25 feet away, I couldn't discern exactly what was happening, but the man eventually stood up to leave. That's when one of the officers eyed me and yelled something like, "He's got a camera!" [...]

Transcribed Talk by Chris Hedges: &quot;Markets and Morals&quot;

Portland, 04.08.2013 05:39


And Obama is cut precisely out of that mold of Clinton. The Democratic party, in Europe, would be considered a far-right party. Obama's assault on civil liberties has been far worse than under George W. Bush: an absolutely remarkable fact. The FISA Amendment Act, which retroactively makes legal what, under our Constitution, has traditionally been illegal: the warrantless wiretapping, monitoring, and eavesdropping of tens of millions of American citizens. The radical - and I think most dispassionate legal scholars would go, inappropriate -interpretation of the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force act as giving the government the right to assassinate American citizens... and of course I'm speaking about Anwar al-Awlaki, the Yemeni cleric... and not, incidentally, his 16-year-old son, two weeks later, who was on no terrorism list at all.

Latest on California Prisoners' Hunger Strike

Portland, 04.08.2013 05:39

Mediators working on behalf of California prison hunger strikers just concluded their meeting with CDCR Secretary Jeffrey Beard. Today's meeting comes on the heels of nearly 100 family members of hunger strikers visiting the Capitol Tuesday, where they presented a petition signed by over 60,000 people demanding negotiations with hunger strikers to Governor Brown's office.

The hunger strike mediators' statement included, "We gave [Secretary Beard] ideas that would help bring the prisoners' hunger strike to a just end in short order. We provided input for revisions to CDCR's Security Threat Group Policy and Step Down pilot program. Our revisions are intended to create more humane conditions and circumstances. We urged him to follow the lead from other states, such as Illinois, Colorado and Mississippi, to end harsh and long term isolation practices."



Tree-Sit News: White Castle Temporary Area Closure

Portland, 04.08.2013 05:39

The Roseburg Bureau of Land Management has proposed putting up a road closure for the 15 miles of road surrounding the White Castle Timber Sale. This is directly targeted at making it more difficult for us to access and defend this land.

We have thirty days to comment on this proposed closure and we need support! We might be able to get this closure cancelled, or better yet this screwy timber sale dropped with enough public pressure. Please contact the Roseburg BLM and tell them they have no right to destroy native forests much less restrict access to it's defenders.

Racial Disparities in Arrests in the District of Columbia, 2009-2011

DC, 03.08.2013 06:14

Implications for Civil Rights and Criminal Justice in the Nation’s Capital, July 2013 This report grows out of increasing concern that broader aspects of our local and national criminal justice systems — even beyond questions relating to drug policies — reflect significant racial disparities that raise important questions of public policy and civil rights concerns. Key findings arising from the our analysis of the data, which should give D.C. residents and policymakers cause for concern, include: x More than eight out of 10 arrests in our city were of African Americans. MPD reported a total of 142,191 adult arrests from 2009 through 2011. While there are about as many African Americans aged 18 or older (47.6%) as there are adult whites (42%) living in this city, eight out of 10 adults a rrested for a crime in on are African American. In 2010, there were 40,353 arrests of adult African American Washingtonians, which is equivalent to 17 percent of the total number of adult African American D.C. residents.1 Moreover, there were 31,874 arrests that year of adult African American men, which is equivalent to more than 30 percent of the adult male African American population. The 4,866 arrests of white residents is equivalent to 2 percent of the white D.C. residents aged 18 or older.
