Mayor Refuses to Sign Bill Protecting Protest Rights

DC, 27.01.2005 03:42

Mayor Anthony Williams (D) refused to sign the "First Amendment Rights and Police Standards Act of 2004" on Wednesday. He claimed during his weekly press conference that the bill goes too far in limiting the way police can handle demonstrators in the District. The mayor indicated that he does not intend to veto the bill, like he did last week with legislation that would have required police to tape interviews with suspects, but he will simply let the legislation pass without his signature. Williams argued that police have had to deal with more destructive forms of protest in recent years, and that police need to be able to prevent such large scale disruptions. He specifically mentioned the 1999 World Trade Organization protests in Seattle. The mayor claimed that the Seattle police's approach to dealing with those demonstrators was "disastrous" because they were unable to prevent rioting. He went on to claim that the DC police policies regarding demonstrations have prevented Seattle-like riots. “These are not peaceful protesters,” the mayor said, “these are anarchists.”

Oakland Brings the Curfew to Jerry Brown's Home

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.01.2005 00:57

Critical Resistance and All of Us or None plan to cite Oakland mayor Jerry Brown at his loft apartment January 26th for harassing and scapegoating the people of Oakland. There will be a protest on Wednesday night outside of the old Sears Building at 27th Street and Telegraph in Oakland from 9:30pm to 10:30pm. Brown's latest idea is to impose a curfew on probationers and parolees -- arresting them if they leave their homes between 10pm and 6am. Brown has said that 80 percent of homicides in the city involve felons who are on probation and parole, and 70 percent of homicides occur at night. The curfew seems to be a likely effort to reign in "crime" in Oakland as the mayor prepares to run for state Attorney General.



Oakland to Discuss Potential Use of Herbicides

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.01.2005 00:53

On Wednesday, January 26th, there will be a Town Hall meeting to discuss the use of herbicides in wildfire prevention on city-owned property in the Oakland hills. East Bay Pesticide Alert and Stop Toxic Trespass will attend and demand "non-toxic methods only" at the meeting, which was organized by the Wildlife Prevention Assessment District and Oakland Councilwoman Jean Quan. The district is proposing selective use of the chemicals to create fire-breaks in the same areas devastated by a 1991 firestorm. The herbicides in question are glyphosate (in formulations such as Round-up or Rodeo) and triclopyr (in formulations such as Garlon and Pathfinder). Both Glyphosate and Triclopyr inhibit the work of mycorrhizal fungi, which help plants with nutrient uptake. The Town Hall will take place on Wednesday, January 26, 2005, at Oakland City Hall's Hearing Room 4, at 7 pm. Read More about the meeting and the herbicides in question.



Oakland to Discuss Potential Use of Herbicides

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.01.2005 00:30

On Wednesday, January 26th, there will be a Town Hall meeting to discuss the use of herbicides in wildfire prevention on city-owned property in the Oakland hills. East Bay Pesticide Alert and Stop Toxic Trespass will attend and demand "non-toxic methods only" at the meeting, which was organized by the Wildlife Prevention Assessment District and Oakland Councilwoman Jean Quan. The district is proposing selective use of the poisons to create fire-breaks in the same areas devastated by a 1991 firestorm. Many do not understand that pesticides can sicken, and even kill, people and animals. The herbicides in question are glyphosate (in formulations such as Round-up or Rodeo) and triclopyr (in formulations such as Garlon and Pathfinder). Both Glyphosate and Triclopyr (the active ingredient in Garlon 4) inhibit the work of mycorrhizal fungi, which help plants with nutrient uptake. The Town Hall will take place on Wednesday, January 26, 2005, at Oakland City Hall (12th and Broadway, right by 12th St. BART), in Hearing Room 4, at 7 pm. Read more



Which way for Madison: Parochial or progressive?

Madison, 27.01.2005 00:11

The recent decision of the Dane County Democratic Party to draw a line in the sand, and withhold endorsements in non-partisan elections from candidates backed by Progressive Dane, the Four Lakes Green Party, the Socialist Party, and other progressive parties, has raised a lot of questions. Some progressive Democrats are now left wondering whether there is a place for them in the local Democratic Party. And everyone should wonder when dedicated progressive activists, some of them not only Greens and Progressives, but also Democrats, are maligned by Democratic Party Executive Board member Sullivan as "leeches and parasites."



Chicago Says Farewell To Carlos Cortez

Chicago, 26.01.2005 23:37


logoArtist, author, poet and unrepentant rebel worker, Carlos Cortez died on Jan. 18 at his home in Chicago. He was 81.

Cortez's imprisonment as a conscientious objector during World War II led to his membership in the Industrial Workers of the World - the Wobblies. His support for the union and a lifelong committment to the rights of working people everywhere remained a central theme of many of his legendary wood and linoleum-cut graphics, as well as editorial and poetic works, and helped bring international attention to Mexicans and other indigenous peoples. He was columnist and editor for the IWW union paper, 'The Industrial Worker', from the late 1950s to 2005, and the author of four books.

In 1975, Cortez helped to found the first Mexican arts organization in Illinois, Movimiento Artistico Chicano, MARCH, Inc. Cortez was also an active member of the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum, Chicago Mural Group, Mexican Taller del Grabado (Mexican Graphic Workshop), Casa de la Cultura Mestizarte, the Native Men�s Song Circle and Charles H. Kerr Publishers. Cortez�s work is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Read More

Chicago Indymedia joins with Carlos's family, friends and fellow workers in mourning his passing. Those seeking to honor his memory may make a contribution to the American Indian Center at 1630 W. Wilson Ave. or the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.

Dissident Republicanism

Boston, 26.01.2005 22:15

Despite the efforts of the British, Irish, and U.S. establishment, the Protestant Loyalist parties and paramilitaries, and the leadership of Sinn Fein and the Provisional I.R.A., the dissident Irish Republican movement (those opposed to the 1998 Stormont Treaty also known as the “Good Friday Agreements”) is still very much alive and is still fighting for freedom in Northern Ireland.

Holding Gonzales accountable for torture

DC, 26.01.2005 17:33

This week the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on the nomination of Alberto Gonzales for United States Attorney General. Gonzales is a principal architect of U.S. torture policies that defined torture so narrowly that it undermined discipline in the military, put American fighting men and women at greater risk, and compromised the ability of the United States Government to hold the moral high ground.



Account of Dungavel Protest

Scotland, 26.01.2005 17:17

Protesters gathered outside Dungavel Detention in South Lanarkshire centre last Sunday to once again reject the Government’s policy of incarcerating asylum seekers, including families and children. Though not far from Glasgow, it’s difficult to get to Dungavel, which lies in a remote corner of the countryside in South Lanarkshire ill served by public transport. The protest, though small, was attended by an interesting mix of groups. The Friends Of Refugees Ayrshire, who have been campaigning against the detention centre since it was opened in 2001, were joined by some fresh faces; notably from the Camcorder Guerrillas, Indymedia, and STAR, Edinburgh Student Action for Refugees.

Homelessness, Not Hopelessness - A New Paradigm For Dignity And Quality Of Life

Portland, 26.01.2005 16:47

Homeless people are living, by definition, outside the box. Their co-existence on the streets with those who are inside the box is

  • We don't understand them
  • We fear them
  • We fear ourselves
  • We may envy them
fraught with confusion. Those of us who are not homeless tend to be uncomfortable with the homeless for many reasons. These reasons may include the following and many more:

There are many good reasons to find solutions to the problems of the homeless. There are also many bad solutions that treat the homeless as simply undesirable pests. There are good reasons to move from homelessness being a "problem" to where homeless folks are an asset to the whole community.

We need to begin to look at the homeless problem in a brand new way - in terms that are relevant to the homeless, their lifestyle, and their needs. We need to find solutions that are not focused on making them less like they are, and more like the homed. We need to find the means of accepting and welcoming the homeless as contributors, not scourges.

We have formed a new bike gang called "Municipal Bike Gang" (we can be sooo stupid sometimes) I aint been Critical Massin in a few months of Sundays, is it going on better with all this global warming?

Underdweller suggests: No lights? you're screwed. I would suggest not hittin' the CM unless your bike is decked out with all the legal necessities and you can actually RIDE a tall bike. (we have seen many who play but can't ride) If you're up to it... ride, my friend, ride.

Pacific Lumber Threatens Bankruptcy, Environmental Destruction

Portland, 26.01.2005 16:22

Freshwater, CA - Pacific Lumber Company (PL) is threatening bankruptcy to pressure California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to allow logging in areas already chronically damaged by years of over cutting.

According to the LA Times, Maxxam CEO Charles Hurwitz, who helped orchestrate the hostile corporate take-over of PL in 1985, took a rare visit to California for a private meeting with Gov. Schwarzenegger on January 11 to promote logging plans PL says would equate to about 750 acres of clear-cuts in the already ravaged Freshwater and Elk River Watersheds.

The State Water Board is withholding a series of Waste Discharge permits after PL failed to turn over pertinent data to the Board, though logging on four Timber Harvest Plans (including one with ancient, irreplaceable redwoods) will go forward. Complying with state regulatory agencies has long been a bane of Maxxam/PL, as seen by their accumulation of at least 325 violations of conservations laws between March 1999 and May 2004.



WSF in Porto Alegre erwartet 100.000 Teilnehmer

Germany, 26.01.2005 15:55

Zeitgleich mit dem WEF beginnt in Porto Alegre das Weltsozialforum, welches 2001 urspr�nglich als Gegenveranstaltung zum WEF begann. Mindestens 100.000 Menschen aus aller Welt werden erwartet - zus�tzlich dazu 20.000 zum basisdemokratisch organisierten "Interkontinentalen Camp der Jugend". Kritik am offiziellen WSF gibt es vor allem aufgrund der teilweise hierarchischen und intransparenten Struktur. 300 brasilianische Arbeiter demonstrierten gegen die Organisatoren des Weltsozialforums, weil sie ihren Lohn nicht erhalten hatten. (Artikel)
Insgesamt sind mehr als 2000 Veranstaltungen in 11 Themenbl�cken angek�ndigt (�bersicht). Alternative Medien soll ein Hauptfeature der WSF-Berichterstattung sein. Das WSF 2006 k�nnte dann an verschiedenen Orten in aller Welt stattfinden. Die entg�ltige Entscheidung dar�ber wird bei einem council meeting im April getroffen.

WEF 2005 in Davos

Germany, 26.01.2005 15:25

Von �ffentlichkeit und Widerspruch abgeschirmt, findet in Davos das wohl wichtigste "Privattreffen" der Welt statt. Das World Economic Forum veranstaltet ihr allj�hrliches "Annual Meeting" in Davos vom 26-30. Januar. Demokratisch nicht legitimiert treffen sich Konzernvorsitzende, Regierungschefs, reiche Privatpersonen und graue Eminenzen zu Beratungen hinter verschlossenen T�ren. Tausende Polizisten, Armee, Stacheldraht und ein Aussetzen demokratischer Grunds�tze sollen Proteste verhindern. Selbst die Bahn stellt ihren Fahrplan um. Nach der Polizeigewalt im vergangenen Jahr und den diesj�hrigen Verboten fast aller Demonstrationen, begannen dieses Jahr die Anti-WEF-Aktivit�ten u.a. mit einem dezentralen Aktionstag mit Schwerpunkt in Bern. Das gr��te Polizeiaufgebot der Geschichte "sicherte" die Stadt. Jeder Versuch, spontane Demonstrationen abzuhalten wurde mit Gewalt beendet. Auch Diskussionsveranstaltungen wurden verboten. Dennoch beteiligten sich mehrere tausend Menschen an kleineren Aktionen. Es gab 74 zumeist willk�rliche Verhaftungen, zahlreiche Berichte von gewaltt�tigen �bergriffen. Bis zum Wochenende wurden rund 250 verhinderte Einreisen bekannt. W�hrend die schweizer Presse Hofberichterstattung �bt und Polizeil�gen verbreitet (z.B.: 1 | 2 | 3), beschr�nken sich deutsche Journalisten zumeist auf das Abtippen von Presseerkl�rungen von WEF und Parteien.

What Stinks in St Helens?!

Portland, 26.01.2005 10:31

A thick, smelly blanket of yellow-brown smog has been laying on my little town for 2 days now. It looks like LA in the 1970s out here. What gives?!

I went out to see if I could locate the source of this stench, and guess what I found. While the pollution is diffuse and hard to pinpoint at first, near the edge of town it gets a little clearer. Down by the railroad tracks, it turns into a thick, brown smear stretching across the sky. Following the smear, I was led right to its source: The Boise Cascade mill on Kaster road. Yes, the choking smog that's covered the town for days narrows near the mill, and becomes a discernible trail, leading right down the Boise Cascade smokestack.

My eyes are burning and I find it harder to breathe. I actually feel dizzy. This can't be good for my health, nor the health of the 5000 or so other people enveloped in this haze.



Another response to the Tribune PJTTF article

Portland, 26.01.2005 10:30

In the Tribune article, Special Agent Robert Jordan, in charge of the Oregon FBI and the JTTF said "If the single biggest threat to the region is terrorism, it doesn't make sense to have the largest police presence in Oregon be absent from the terrorism task force,"

That is a very big if, and is not at all backed up by Agent Jordan. Certainly swiftly rising healthcare costs are a much more obvious, substantiated and real threat to the long term health of the region. The deterioration of social infrastructure such as public schools and social support networks are a greater threat than terrorism.

Jobs With Justice report on Jan. 21 actions: Parry Center strikers, supporters arrested as strike escalates

Portland, 26.01.2005 10:26

(1/21/2005) -- Thirteen Parry Center strikers and supporters were arrested today as the strike enters its eighth week. The arrests followed a raucous sit-in at the 1000 Broadway building where the office of Trillium Corporation board member, Peter Northrup, is located. The striking workers and supporters occupied the building in order to deliver the message to Northrup and other board members that the actions of Trillium and the Parry Center are hurting kids by hurting the workers that care for them.

According to the union representing the workers, SEIU 503, the agency has hired permanent replacements (scabs) and fired the striking workers. The strikers are caregivers who work with and have gained the trust of the emotionally disturbed children placed at the Parry Center.

Oakland Brings the Curfew to Jerry Brown's Home

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.01.2005 07:56

Critical Resistance and All of Us or None plan to cite Oakland mayor Jerry Brown at his loft apartment January 26th for harassing and scapegoating the people of Oakland. There will be a protest on Wednesday night outside of the old Sears Building at 27th Street and Telegraph in Oakland from 9:30pm to 10:30pm. Brown's latest idea is to impose a curfew on probationers and parolees -- arresting them if they leave their homes between 10pm and 6am. Brown has said that 80 percent of homicides in the city involve felons who are on probation and parole, and 70 percent of homicides occur at night. The curfew seems to be a likely effort to reign in "crime" in Oakland as the mayor prepares to run for state Attorney General. First-time curfew violations could yield a 30-day stay in jail for parolees.

January 28th- SF Cops to Attempt to Get Charges Dropped in Sheila Detoy Death

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.01.2005 05:39

A critical hearing in the case of the death of Sheila Detoy will take place this Friday morning, January 28th, at the San Francisco Superior Court. The San Francisco Police Officers Association is trying to get officer Gregory Breslin, who is widely believed to have been the officer who fatally shot Detoy in the head, off on a technicality. In 2003 the San Francisco Police Commission decided they wanted to file charges against the officers, but things seem to be moving very slowly...Sheila Detoy's family and friends believe that the police are trying to get the Superior Court to dismiss the case against Breslin. Many believe that he should be held accountable for Sheila Detoy's death.

TONIGHT! Attend Santa Cruz C. C. Meeting on Hotel-Convention Center Project

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.01.2005 01:32

SC City Council Discusses Hotel-Convention Center Project tonight, Tuesday, 25 January, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM at 809 Center St. Very important for people opposed to convention-hotel at the Dream Inn site, along with a 6-story parking garage, come to the city council meeting tonight and keep the pressure on the council to not pass this deal with the developers and replace one eyesore for another on our coast.

After two public hearings last week, including one that went past midnight, the City Council is poised to make a decision on financing $30 million for this project tonight. Many residents have already voiced their disapproval of this plan which seems to be broadly flawed.

A particularly convincing argument against the project was that these types of ventures are not bringing in substantial dollars for the cities that invest in them and many are in the red, according to a recently published Broookings Institute study. Read more about the study at Bruce Bratton's website or on Brookings Institute online.

As the 2005 spring semester begins, students across the United States will confront an increasingly sophisticated multi-million dollar right-wing campus network bankrolled by some of the largest conservative philanthropies, think-tanks and corporations. Like the right-wing lie of the so-called ‘liberal’ media, the same is true of the so-called ‘liberal’ university. The three largest conservative campus organizations are the innocuous-sounding Young America’s Foundation (YAF), Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) and the Leadership Institute which spent approximately $25 million on various campus outreach programs in 2004.

ALF Liberates Entire Deer Population from GNK Deer Farm

Santa Cruz, CA, 25.01.2005 19:16

San Miguel, CA- In the early morning hours of January 18, members of the Animal Liberation Front liberated the entire imprisoned deer population of GNK Deer Farm in Monterey County, California. These deer were doomed to certain death at the early age of 18 months at the hand of owner Gerd Konieczny, a former butcher and LA cop who raises the deer for profit and fun, by his own admission. [ read the full communiqué ]

A commenter writes: A few questions that I hope were / or will be considered in the future:

1) What deer species was this? Was it a local native species and subspecies or was it a non-native deer released with many harmful potential long-term impacts on local native flora and fauna. Alien species introduced into new habitats by humans is a leading cause of extinction. If this was not considered it should be considered in the future.

2) How many deer were released? Will local deer starve as a result of the increased population? What will be the impact on some of the very endangered local plant species in Monterey County?
