out and about

Portland, 06.04.2015 22:48

My new t-shirt says:
Front---Individuals For Justice
Endorses Back---Anyone but Hales, novick.
I will be wearing it a lot for the next two years.

I am reminded of the saying,* "Beware of the Ides of March" as I look back to last week, which for me started by watching a foreign leader tell our congress of these United States that we are fools, and he did it to standing ovations, a lot of standing ovations by our representatives and senators; it was shameful. My sincere hope is that bibi natanyahu goes home to Israel, gets defeated, and goes the way of g.w. bush. The 15th of March is only a few days away, maybe a week depending on when you read this and I fully expect Caesar, AKA char-lie the hales, will announce he will become emperor of Rome. I know he is raising lots of money to screw over us for four more years, yes "Beware of the Ides of March" my friends. [...]

The second event was the city council meeting on the 5th seemed like a boring meeting unless you were hoping that the plan for the West Quadrant would be to your liking, on Thursday one of my friends asked me to join him and then did not show up, but I did learn some stuff. I learned that four of the five sh-ts were in the pockets of the big developers; deep in those pockets. The only person standing with the people, who testified, about 30 of them, was once again Commissioner Amanda Fritz. It was fascinating to watch, [...]

Next Thursday we will be going after the lack of opportunities for the homeless to charge their cell phones. There was a good article in Street Roots about this last week and we will be yelling about it to the commissioners who have a hand in this nonsense. Here is the street Roots article.  http://news.streetroots.org/2015/03/06/homeless-phone-charging-thief-wanted-security

Cascadia Cypherpunk Convergence - April 11th

Portland, 06.04.2015 22:48

A cypherpunk is someone who uses cryptography and similar methods to achieve societal and political change.

-------------------

Over the last two decades we have seen the Internet transformed from a tool of emancipation to the most insidious threat to human liberty the world has ever seen.
But amidst the seemingly intractable rise of a transnational surveillance society, there is a small spark of hope endowed on us through the power of mathematics.
It is possible to formulate a math problem (an algorithm) so difficult that even the mightiest superpower cannot decipher it. It is this fundamental property of our physical universe that provides some measure of hope in what otherwise seems to be very dark times.

Through this conference we hope to increase how networked our movement is and raise public awareness about issues of privacy, technology and social change in the digital age.

---------------------------

takes place on April 11th, 10am-7pm

two snatched by Portland police at rally Tuesday 3/10 for Africa, recent victim of LAPD

Portland, 06.04.2015 22:48

Two people were arrested by police at the end of tuesday evenings solidarity rally and march downtown in honor of Africa, shot and killed by the LAPD.
In the longer ustream video the two people targeted were standing calmly nearby, without provocation the police arrest both, they say for disorderly conduct. Earlier an officer attempts to coerce someone's identity by threatening to give a citation for being in the street. Seems to me they were targeted for concealing their identity. What do you think\\\?

Out &amp; About

Portland, 06.04.2015 22:48

Out & About With The Troublemakers! 3/13/2015
Going backwards is always my way. We attended the County Meeting on 3/12/2015 and offered the position of Individuals For Justice, (IFJ) on the problem of cell phones for the homeless. When your phone goes dead or you need a jump for it to continue working you plug it into your computer or outlet and you are good to go. What do you do if you live on the streets\? Street Roots did a wonderful job reminding us that José Serrica, a member in good standing, spoke of these a few months ago. So we used our 3 minutes of communication time to tell the Commissioners that it costs less than a penny to charge a cell phone from dead to let's make some calls. They seem to know what we were talking about, maybe because we sent them the article and gave them a heads up that we would be pressing them on this. We also sent copies to the 5 sh-ts at city hall and did receive a note back from our favorite of the 5, Comm. Amanda Fritz, who says they are working or talking about working or thinking of doing something to help. She is one of the few who try and in most cases answers her messages, we like that. "Trust what a politician says and you will get screwed, praise them only when they actually do something." (Joe Walsh 1971) Here is the video of our testimony/communication with the good county commissioners:
http://multnomah.granicus.com

This day only two of us spoke and I am about 4 minutes in, the woman who talked before me is worth listening to because she also is talking about the homeless/houseless. We will keep the pressure on but you can call the chair of the commissioners here and just ask how they are doing with offering a safe place to allow citizens to charge their cell phone. Thank you Street Roots again for reminding us of this important issue. Chair of County Commissioners Kafoury's number: 503- 988-3308 City Commissioner Fritz's number: 503-823-3008

We went to the City Council Gathering of the 5 sh-ts on 3/11/2015 and had a time; they are so weird! The morning session was kind of boring, except for the wonderful kids who came from Harrison Park Elementary school to talk about leadership and the arts, we enjoyed their presence. We also did speak on item 258 concerning the Park Ranger Program. We like the rangers in general and ask that they act as ambassadors and not as cops, we objected to them excluding people from the parks for 30-60-90 days, somebody else should make that decision and not them. There are only 7 permanent rangers for over 200+ parks, we thought that was shameful, we need more rangers, less cops. On to the afternoon session which surprised me with the large number of people coming out to express their views on item 266 commonly called "Remove the Box" [...]



Volunteer with Portland Books to Prisoners!

Portland, 06.04.2015 22:48

Books to Prisoners is needing a few more volunteers! Help inspire and educate our brothers and sisters behind bars!
Portland Books to Prisoners is an all volunteer group meeting twice a month for "mailing nights". We could use some volunteers to help with answering letters, filling orders, wrapping packages and sending them out (U.S. postal service). Any kind of fund-raising ideas are also appreciated, as are tax-deductible donations, and book donations--mostly paperbacks as hardback are expensive to mail out. Paperback dictionaries are always a big request. We are also open to being in a new space if anyone knows of a space we could use that is close-in east side (dry basement or garage, church basement, etc.)

The next mailing night is this Wednesday, March 18th from 5:30-8:00!

WHAT: B2P mailing nights
WHERE: in the basement of the Red and Black Cafe (400 S.E. 12th, and Oak) come through the gate around back--look for the sign...
WHEN: First and third Wednesdays of every month
Contact: (503) 249-6343 for more info.



Ukrainians \?

Portland, 06.04.2015 22:48

Wednesday 4/1/2015

Today was a kind of fun day one rarely enjoys; most of the time others seem to have all the fun. It started by meeting with Jose, Lightning, and Steve to go over some things and plan out strategy for the future. Yes, believe it not Mr. fish, we do have a strategy to rid ourselves of this city council. Off to the council chambers and there seemed to be more suits than normal, the Ukrainians were waiting to go into the hall of sulfur. It was like being in a foreign country there were so many, maybe 20 people who came to listen and thank our mayor, (or yours, I don't want him) for supporting their cause, but what cause\? They even had a magazine with a smiling hale on its cover [...]

We can't get the mayor to sit down with citizens who have major problems with police accountability and yet there he is taking sides on an issue that is guaranteed to blow up in our faces. I do not understand why he does the things that he does and I continue to be amazed by the lack of shame of this council. We need to throw all of them out as they come up for re-election. And this my friends was just Communications, it gets worse. Moving to item *333, this looked innocent but then we read the supporting documentation and found out that the city was going to go after a grant of $200,000.00 for the cops to expand the capacity of the Portland Police Bureau Behavioral Health Unit. [...]

Bottom line we do not want the Portland Police anywhere near a person who is experiencing a mental breakdown, we want the County to respond to a call for help, not the cops. This grant will keep the PPD responding to people who need help and they will send some aggressive ass that will kill you if you don't shape up and act normal. If you call 911 you will get a cop, if you call the County Emergency number you will get a professional medical person to respond. Here is that number 503-988-4888. [...]

Feds Allow Lawsuit to Shut Down Diablo Canyon to Proceed

LA, 06.04.2015 22:47

On February 20 a Federal Court of Appeals in Washington DC rejected an attempt by Pacific Gas & Electric and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to quash a lawsuit filed by environmental group Friends Of the Earth (FOE). According to Friends Of the Earth, the suit alleges that the "NRC illegally allowed PG&E to alter Diablo Canyon's nuclear plant license.

"FOE contends the NRC acted in secret and collusion with PG&E to hide Diablo Canyon's vulnerability to earthquakes stronger than it was built to withstand. A decision in favor of Friends of the Earth could result in PG&E having to shut down its reactors, pending a public hearing to examine the new risks at the plant."

Diablo Canyon has been controversial since the beginning. Located on California's Central coast near San Luis Obispo, and in an earthquake and tsunami zone, 1900 no nukes protesters associated with the Abalone Alliance were arrested in 1981 over a period of two weeks in an attempt to stop its construction.

Several years before that, The China Syndrome, a movie starring Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas, appeared on silver screens across the nation, at least partially inspired by the struggle at Diablo Canyon. This was 1979, the year the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster melted down into American consciousness.

And in fact Friends of the Earth itself was founded all the way back in 1969 by environmentalist David Brower because of concerns about the possible construction of Diablo Canyon.

Los Angeles Stands Up for Women's Rights

LA, 06.04.2015 22:47

Thousands of Angelinos took to the streets to demand an end to violence against women in Los Angeles. on March 8th.

Californians Shame Regulators for Teaching Big Oil How to Skirt Law and Pollute Our Water

LA, 06.04.2015 22:47

Long Beach: What the frack?! On Tuesday, March 24th, the state of California held an "Aquifer Exemption Workshop" to show oil industry representatives how to exploit loopholes for drilling and disposal projects to obtain aquifer exemption approval. Concerned water drinkers interrupted the state-sponsored workshop on how to get away with poisoning our drinking water.

As the presenter at the podium droned on about “EPA Aquifer Exemption Criteria,†one woman stood up from her banquet table to declare: “I just have to say one thing. This is backwards. It was just announced in the news that industry injected 2,500 wells illegally... Shouldn't you be having a workshop on how to stop that instead of how to get around, to get exempt from these regulations?"

Another woman entered the room waving two bottles of brown liquid. “I actually brought some poisoned water to show everyone what we’re going to be exposed to and forced to drink if this poisoning of our water by our regulators continues.â€

Approaching the podium and handing out the poisoned water, she asked, "Would you feel like drinking this water?"

City of Fullerton Conspires to Silence Free Press Following Hung Jury

LA, 06.04.2015 22:47

After the jury returned a hung verdict, the Fullerton district attorney announced their intent to retry independent journalist livestreamers AJ Redkey and PM Beers for their presence at the January 18, 2014 protests of the police murder of Kelly Thomas

Following the January 2014 acquittal of Fullerton police officers Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli for beating Kelly Thomas to death, outraged people took to the streets for a day of protest against police murder and violence against the unarmed citizenry.

Starting in the early morning of January 18, 2014 , signs with messages such as “If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention†and “We Want Justice†began to appear outside the police station and Fullerton City Hall.

Livestreamer PM Beers interviewed a witness whose friend had just been snatched off the street by police. After following police who got out of a patrol car, she witnessed the arrest of another one of the people with whom she had been marching all day. When she tried to leave the scene herself, she ended up streaming her own arrest live across the Internet.

Livestreamer AJ Redkey also filmed the police at locations around downtown Fullerton throughout the day, but he was never arrested. The Fullerton Police Department waited until May 7, 2014, the day before a planned protest of unlawful arrests at Fullerton’s North Justice Center, to stalk and arrest him at another rally in Pasadena. A “snatch squad†of six Fullerton police officers—four undercover and two in uniform—traveled many miles out of their jurisdiction to arrest the independent journalist, an event which was filmed by another livestreamer from inLeague Press.

Yes, you read that right. Independent journalist AJ Redkey was arrested for “failure to disperse†nearly four months after he left (or dispersed from) the area of downtown Fullerton.

New Sit-Lie Ban Protested in Monterey

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

In October, a new law went into effect in the City of Monterey making it illegal to sit or lie on sidewalks in commercial districts. In response, activists staged a sit-in on the sidewalk along Alvarado Street in Downtown Monterey on February 13, and they say they plan to make it a regular event. Individuals with Direct Action Monterey Network (DAMN) organized the demonstration because they believe the law targets individuals without homes, travelers, and the impoverished.



Students Shut Down Santa Cruz Highways and UCSC Campus During 96 Hours of Action

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

Students at UC Santa Cruz concluded four days of protests against tuition and fee increases with a campus-wide strike and shut down on March 5. Dubbed "96 Hours of Action," demonstrations were held March 2 to 5 at schools across California to highlight the relationship of racist mass incarceration to the privatization of education. Thousands of people in Santa Cruz were affected on March 3 when six students locked themselves together to block highway traffic.



Video Surfaces of Santa Cruz Police Officers Hitting and Tasing Man

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

A video has surfaced of Santa Cruz Police hitting and tasing Oliver Howard in front of the Court House on October 13, in what multiple witnesses called excessive force at the time. The woman who recorded the video can be heard saying, "I hate cops" and "this is so fucked up" as the events unfolded. After the violent takedown by officers, Howard was taken directly to the hospital. He was never booked into jail and apparently was never charged with any crime. Since that time, a witness complaint with Santa Cruz PD has triggered an external review.



Supporters Pack the Courtroom for the Highway 17 Six

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

Supporters packed a Santa Cruz courtroom on March 17 for preliminary hearings concerning the six UCSC students who were arrested for blocking traffic on Highway 17 on March 3 to protest tuition increases. The hearing was the first time all six of those arrested have appeared together in court, and they all have legal representation now. None have pleaded guilty to the charges they face, which include misdemeanors for "resisting arrest" and creating a "public nuisance."



Use of Solitary Confinement Protested at Coastside Vigil in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

On March 23, coordinated actions were held statewide in California to oppose the use of solitary confinement in prisons and jails. Protests were planned for Eureka, Los Angeles, Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose. In Santa Cruz, community members gathered on West Cliff Drive for a rally and candlelight vigil. Organizers say future actions will continue to be held statewide on the 23rd of each month to symbolize the 23 hours per day prisoners in solitary are held in the "complete isolation" of their cells.



Legal Rights of Patients to Cultivate and Access Medicine Drastically Reduced

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

On March 24, the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 before an overflowing room to ban the cultivation of cannabis in all unincorporated territories of the county, with limited exceptions. Personal grows of 10�—10 square feet are still permitted, with restrictions. Outdoor cultivation is entirely banned in the 2nd District, represented by Zach Friend, and includes the communities of Aptos, Corralitos, Freedom, and portions of Watsonville.



The Unmanageable University

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

Autonomous Students UCSC write: Before dawn on March 3, a group of six students at the University of California Santa Cruz went to the fishhook connecting Highways 1 to 17. Evoking the practice of highway blockades popularized during the Black Lives Matter movement, they chained themselves to aluminum trashcans filled with cement and blocked traffic for nearly five hours. The traffic jam this caused stretched over the hill to snarl Silicon Valley commutes, an act of peaceful civil disobedience that has since become the most controversial of the "96 Hours of Action" declared across the UC system for the first week of March, in protest against tuition hikes and police violence.



Monarch Butterflies in North America Found to be Vulnerable to Extinction

Santa Cruz, CA, 06.04.2015 22:47

A newly completed assessment has found that monarch butterflies in North America are vulnerable to extinction. The assessment was undertaken by NatureServe and the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, and results were published in a report released by the U.S. Forest Service on March 9. "The time is now to intensify continent-wide efforts to reduce the threats to this iconic species and prevent it from succumbing to the fate that has befallen far too many other species," said Bruce Young, NatureServe's Director of Species Science.

The action was organized in the context of the killing of five unarmed Latino men since March 2014 by white Salinas police officers: Angel Ruiz; Osman Hernandez; Carlos Mejia; Frank Alvarado, Jr.; and Jaime Garcia.

Jacorey Calhoun and the Outsourcing of Oakland Police Violence

San Francisco Bay Area, 28.02.2015 22:52

Oakland city officials bragged that Oakland Police have not shot anybody for twenty months, a streak ended recently when an officer shot at - but missed - a man who was reportedly having a mental health crisis. However, in the last thirteen months five people have been shot and killed by law enforcement in Oakland, it just happens that they were not killed by members of the Oakland Police Department. Jacorey Calhoun was shot and killed by an Alameda County Sheriff's Deputy in August of last year.

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.02.2015 22:49

Workers at the Santa Cruz Dream Inn held a two-day strike on February 20 and 21, prompting the hotel to close its restaurant, Aquarius. Cooks, Waiters, Bartenders, Bell Persons, Front Desk Clerks, Room Cleaners, Maintenance Workers, and all other employees refused to work, and picket lines were held in front of the hotel all day for both days of the strike.

Police Injury of Homeless Man Still Unresolved

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.02.2015 22:49

Steve Schnaar writes: Nearly two years ago, a Santa Cruz police officer injured a homeless man who was already in handcuffs, slamming him face-first into the ground. Caught on video by a bystander, the incident got a lot of attention and the SCPD promised to do a formal investigation. However the results of that investigation have been kept secret, and meanwhile the offending officer is still on the job with no apparent consequences.



Emeryville Home Depot Shut Down for Yuvette Henderson

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.02.2015 22:50

Yuvette Henderson was gunned down by Emeryville police officers Michelle Shepard and Warren Williams on February 3 within minutes of an incident at the Emeryville Home Depot about a block away. Concerned that Yuvette was killed because she was a Black woman, and that police agencies are involved in a massive cover-up, the Anti Police-Terror Project held a rally at Emeryville PD headquarters on February 21 before marching to the Home Depot, where activists used chains and lockboxes to shut the store down for most of the day.



City of Oakland Tries to Run the Poor Out of San Pablo Ave Parks
