Post-Apocalyptic Revolutionary Logistics Training

Portland, 26.12.2004 17:39

We need a lot more meaning and freedom in our lives. More connection, more intrigue, and more adventure. Adventure Club is part of our effort to create more joy and more resistance. Adventure Club may not change the world, but for those who commit to try, it will make their world more interesting, exciting, and engaged.

Think of Adventure Club as radical skill-share. It can range from rather tame to semi-hardcore direct action. Anything from extreme hide and seek to urban squatting to billboard liberation to more clandestine activism.

We are building new traditions and rituals. Adventure Club is fundamentally meaningful, giving people intellectual and emotional tools they need to survive in the world. AC actions always have a training element, are always physical, and are completed in a single night (or day). AC is not merely fun and pranks, but that's often part of it.

A short and not very accurate history of xmas

Portland, 26.12.2004 00:30

What the heck, an indy news service can use a laugh from time to time. Enjoy, this took me all morning to write.

So yeah, there was this guy. His name was Josh, and he was born in the summer according to most theologians, but theologians also have supported such concepts as the divine right of king and papal infallibility, so we should take nothing they say too seriously. So let's pretend he was born in midwinter, say around the end of December on the Roman calendar.

So yeah, this guy. He was a bit of a nut, but generally a decent chap. He walked around basically being nice to people and having a good time. He danced. He drank. He was smashingly good at party tricks...

He also thought violence was a bad thing, but lost it one day and beat the shit out of a bunch of guys in a temple one day over buying and selling stuff in the temple.

Diane Monson Receives Letter from DMV

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.12.2004 21:14

12/23/2004: The DMV announced this week that it had postponed a hearing and launched an internal investigation of a letter that was sent to Diane Monson. Monson, who is a medical marijuana patient from Oroville, California and a plaintiff in the Raich, et al v. Ashcroft, et al case that is currently before the US Supreme Court, received a notice from the California District of Motor Vehicles earlier this month that she would have to appear at a re-examination hearing this week, or lose her driver's license. The letter did not state why Monson had been selected. Re-examination hearings are usually held in cases involving drivers involved in serious crashes or who have been cited for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol several times.

Fresno Nurses Go on Strike

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.12.2004 20:22

Nurses from University Medical Center (UMC) went on strike on Dec. 23rd. The one day strike was called by members of the California Nurses Association (CNA) to pressure management to bargain in good faith. While the nurses want a 5% salary increase, the company is offering only a 2% raise; the striking workers also seek a standardized pay scale and improved pension plan. Read More | Labor news



Profit and Hysteria in Fresno

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.12.2004 20:14

Chemicals and copyrights made two big wins in Fresno in late November. As the Fresno City Council decided to take no action on challenges that a recent order all but banning medical cannabis in Fresno violates state Proposition 215, two blocks away the Fresno County Board of Supervisors voted to approve a pro-biotechnology resolution brought forward by the Fresno County Farm Bureau. To many the two issues may seem somewhat unrelated, but to those concerned with the increasing influence of corporations and government officials looking to protect their guns and butter at the cost of our health, the issue is one and the same. Both actions by elected officials came in reaction to increasing attempts to provide medicine and ban dangerous products. Read full story | Central Valley news

Remembering Dorothee Soelle

Portland, 25.12.2004 10:11

Dorothee Soelle was born in 1929. She lived, loved and worked with Fulbert Steffensky, a former Benedictine monk. With him, she developed the political night prayer at the end of the 1960s in Koln, a model for the Munich political Saturday prayer. She was a political theologian and a devout mystic. She was a penetrating thinker and a tender poetess, a feminist who loved and challenged men and women as people. She showed the way from the humble attitude of neediness for redemption for redemption and burdening sin with which we catholic children must still pray today. Lord, I am not worthy to stand under your roof... She showed the way out telling us: God needs us for his creation just as we need God. God waits on you and rejoices in your contribution in the world!

Charity was a political, public theme of building on the reciprocity of giving and taking, more than a private love program. Charity is not a caritive focus on a world to come but love for the living, for what we can experience in grace, joy, cooperation and mutual enrichment if we are not structurally encouraged to greed and fear because greed and anxiety are best suited to capitalism.

Merry Christmas to homeless vets

DC, 25.12.2004 03:40

It's Christmas eve. Earlier today, I had a chance to bring some food to La Casa Shelter, next door to the Columbia Heights metro station. Since many veterans are homeless, and our country is still at war, creating more veterans, I thought it'd be a good idea to interview a homeless vet. Jimmie Word is who I found.

A Taste of Bay Area Veg-Community Events

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.12.2004 03:28

Under the radar — as demos, rallies and dramatic animal rescues take the few headlines vegetarians and animal rights activists ever get — there are robust communities of vegans and vegetarians in the San Francisco Bay Area that do not exist in much of the rest of the country. Vegetarians generally go about their lives as everyone else does — going to school, working, raising families, hopefully volunteering for social justice organizations. But there are several organized vegetarian groups that stay in touch and share information through active email lists, meet to share meals at the many vegetarian restaurants in the Bay Area or at various potlucks, and simply enjoy camaraderie at other cruelty-free activities.

The Future of Labor: Organizing the Service Industry

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.12.2004 22:35

From Fault Lines - Downtown San Francisco is quiet these days, no more are the hoarse cries of picketing hotel workers to be heard along Market street, in Nob Hill and the Financial District, where members of UNITE-HERE Local 2 were locked out for 38 days following a contract dispute. Yet whatever happens after the 60-day “cooling off” period brokered by Mayor Newsom, San Francisco has changed, and is changing. “San Francisco is a union town”, went one of the union’s chants during the lockout. The support that ordinary people lent to the striking workers suggests that this was no idle boast. But the strike and subsequent lockout of roughly 4,300 hotel workers here is not an isolated incident, nor is this particular to San Francisco. These issues are part of an ever-increasing trend in America today of labor struggles moving into retail and the so-called ‘service industry’.

Lavalas Officials throughout Northern Haiti Forced into Hiding

Portland, 24.12.2004 20:41

During the week leading up to December 16, 2004 Lavalas supporters from all over the north of Haiti began to filter into Cap Haitien and the surrounding towns in preparation for a demonstration calling for the return of the elected government and an end to the ongoing repression and detention of Lavalas activists.

December 16 is an important date in Haitian history, as it marks Jean Bertrand Arisitide's electoral victory in 1990 in Haiti's first ever democratic elections. Many of the people who came to Milot were elected Lavalas officials and supporters who have been forced into hiding since the coup.

Our group met with Jean-Claude Debel, organizer for the Lavalas party in the central plateau and regional coordinator of the literacy program (alphabetization) in Hinche, and Garcon Rosemaire, ex mayor of Hinche. Both men were forced to leave their families and go into hiding following the overthrow of the elected government, as have approximately 4000 other people from Hinche according to the former mayor. The two men report that the situation in the Central Plateau is highly repressive.

KBOO Presswatch script: mind control mythology

Portland, 24.12.2004 20:27

The Daily Mirror, in Great Britain, issued a famous post-election cover page that asked the question: how can fifty-nine million people be so dumb?

I think it's an excellent question, and even though it is clear to me that the dictator stole the election again, it is also clear that there are millions of people, mostly voting against their own class interests, who voted for George W. Bush. I have encountered plenty of bewilderment on this phenomenon right here at home?no need to go to England. What were people thinking?

The people who can best answer that question are the Republican strategists. They understand that they can manipulate much of the population to the point of delusion, using the loyal corporate-owned media, and they intend to keep on doing it. They have created a mental landscape for those fifty-nine million people, in which shadowy figures shift terrible weapons through Iraq, through Syria, to the Wal-Mart nearest you. In this fantasy world, homeless grandmas are rightly punished by the cold and rain on their donated blankets. Lovers who joyously take marriage vows after years of life as a couple are satanic perverts who would rape your children if given a chance. Dedicated activists who put their bodies on the line in an heroic effort to stop war and ecological destruction are actually dangerous terrorists with Middle East connections who bomb themselves in their manic frenzy of hatred. And it's all a sign that Jesus is coming.

Strange &quot;arrest&quot; witnessed Thursday

Portland, 24.12.2004 20:22

There I was in a friendly discussion with a table of Larouche supporters on the sidewalk (always curious why that nut draws a small cultlike following of young people) When I heard the distinctive sounds of handcuffs being fastened.

I looked up expecting to see some cops detaining a druggie, or at least those rent-a-cop portland business allience "green gaurds" tormenting some poor homeless guy. Instead I see a few rather runty looking 30-something adults (I think two women and two men) clustered around a juvenile female. They were dressed in "normal" casual clothing, Nothing seemed to indicate that they were police, security, or the like. They left on foot up the sidewalk with the handcuffed girl- and left me with a feeling of concern.

A perilous journey from Flatbush to Falluja and back leaves Herold Noel out in the cold BROOKLYN - Four nights before Christmas, former Army specialist Herold Noel huddled for warmth in front of a fire he built for himself in Brooklyn's Prospect Park as temperatures slid toward the single digits. Plagued by nightmares and unable to hold a steady job or get the assistance he needed, he was on the verge of losing his wife and three young children. It wasn't the homecoming he'd expected after serving in Iraq last year.



Federal Judge Dismisses NYC's Attempts to Bar Critical Mass Rides (in other words, we win!)

NYC, 24.12.2004 05:00

(from the Open Newswire / Judge's Ruling): "However, while some of the City's difficulties in apprehending violators are generated by the spontaneous and unpredictable nature of Critical Mass, they were also spawned by the City itself ... After allowing Critical Mass rides in Manhattan for ten years without permits and in a manner that the City contends violates the Vehicle and Traffic Law, the Police Department has acquiesced to the very conduct it now seeks to prohibit."

Another critical mass rider notes that "While the denial of the injunction is good news I don't know if we can declare victory just yet. The lack of an injunction at the November 26th Critical Mass didn't deter the City/NYPD from arresting cyclists and scaring away hundreds more not wishing to risk arrest. I expect this draconian behavior to continue." [Read More]

The next critical mass ride is New Year's Eve.



Diane Monson Receives Letter from DMV, Needs Special &quot;Re-examination&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 24.12.2004 04:04

Diane Monson, who is a medical marijuana patient from Oroville, California and a plaintiff in the Raich, et al v. Ashcroft, et al case that is currently before the US Supreme Court, received a notice from the California District of Motor Vehicles earlier this month that she would have to appear at a re-examination hearing this week, or lose her driver's license. The letter did not state why Monson had been selected; she claims that aside from a speeding ticket 15 years ago, she has had spotless driving record. Re-examination hearings are usually held in cases involving drivers involved in serious crashes or who have been cited for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol at least three times over three years.
