Portlanders rally downtown to demand immediate cessation of logging in The Biscuit

Portland, 09.02.2005 00:32

About 40 protesters came out for the noon protest rally at the US Forest Service bldg. The morning fog had lifted, but the dry air was quite cold. We created our own warmth with our energy directed against logging of old growth timber in the Siskiyou's. Among the sign carriers were several mask wearers, an owl face and a Mardigras one. Others chalked graffiti at the building's entrance. read more >>

About 50 people gathered downtown this afternoon in front of the Forest serVice Building to demand that all logging end in the Biscuit Fire area of the Siskiyou region. Currently, the Bush Administration's Forest serVice, with the cooperation of most elected Democratic Party officials, is attempting to subject the area to the largest timber sale ever. Using bad science and misleading rhetoric, friends of the lumber industry in Washington D.C. have presented the plan as a way of preventing fire. This, despite the findings of Fire Ecologists who have shown that natural burns are an essential component of forest health, and that the federal timber sale program is nothing more than corporate welfare.

A visiting activist from the Siskiyous described the forest in the Biscuit as "beautiful, green and lush. You don't need a degree to see it's a healthy forest. Already new trees taller than us are growing where they want to bulldoze." (The activist was on stilts while making this observation.) In reference to the Forest serVice's apprisal of the area, which they erroneously claim needs to be logged, the activist added, "We don't believe their lies."

Fundamentalist Group Tries to Silence Small Theater Company

Portland, 08.02.2005 21:40

Connect the Dots Theatre Company, a small community theatre organization, has been targeted in recent days by a small group of local fundamentalists who are using letters, phone calls and e-mails to harass the theatre company and attempt to erode their financial support from local businesses.

This is the second year that Connect the Dots and the Women's Crisis
Support Team have participated in the international observance of
"V-Day," which focuses attention on the many hidden instances of rape and violence against women worldwide. Tickets for last year's CTD production of "The Vagina Monologues" sold out in three days, and the hastily added "donations-only" dress rehearsal was also sold out. Despite this year's campaign against CTD by the small group of attackers, ticket sales for the production in a new, larger venue are going well, with sold-out status expected within a day or so.

"As they create global connections between their zones of production and consumption, we must create connections between the local and global struggles against neoliberalism, ecocide, and corporate globalization."

The emergence of multinational bodies (e.g. the World Trade Organization) and the creation of massive free trade zones (e.g. ASEAN, EU, or NAFTA), which have heralded the emergence of a new era of unfettered corporate domination of the earth, are not the only or even the most important aspects of globalization. Instead, we must also begin to examine and resist the gigantic infrastructure projects that are necessitated by the exponential expansion of trade across borders.



AUDIO FILE: City of Portland Voter Owned Elections

Portland, 08.02.2005 18:13

On February 3, 2005, a forum was held at First Unitarian Church in Portland in order to explore the benefits of Voter Owned Elections as proposed by Portland Commissioner Erik Sten and City Auditor Gary Blackmer. This forum was sponsored by the Portland Alliance for Democracy.

After introductory remarks by David Delk of Portland Alliance for Democracy three speakers took turns explaining the proposal and their reasons for supporting it. First to speak was Janice Thompson, executive director of Money In Politics Research Action Project a non-partisan, not-for-profit group whose goals are to increase accountability and opportunities for participation in politics. Janice explains the details of the proposal, that it is a sensible reform that is proving itself as a viable alternative to "business as usual" in Maine and Arizona politics. Candidates have a new way to run for office without money.

A Funny Thing Happened on Jury Duty

Portland, 08.02.2005 18:05

The first trial was for a man accused of selling crack - second offense - and carrying a gun. During that jury selection the Judge asked if anyone believed drug enforcement laws were too harsh or not harsh enough. I raised my hand and explained that I felt it is wrong that we have our prisons 75% full of drug addicts when there are so many corporate criminals who are given a slap on the wrist after stealing hundreds of millions of dollars. The judge said "Alright Mr. Burbeck, you are excused".

I later found out that this was his second trial on the offense. He was a member of a gang, and the first trial was thrown out due to jury tampering. I also found out that he was later found guilty.



'Popular Mechanics' readies major hit piece against 9/11 skeptics

Portland, 08.02.2005 18:03

The Hearst-owned Popular Mechanics magazine takes aim at the 9/11 Truth Movement with a cover story in its March 2005 edition. Sandwiched between ads and features for monster trucks, Nascar paraphenelia, and off-road racing are twelve dense and brilliantly designed pages purporting to debunk the myths of 9/11.

The article's approach is to identify the 9/11 skeptics movement with a series of mostly physical-evidence issues, while entirely ignoring vast bodies of evidence that only insiders had the means, motive, and opportunity to carry out the attack.

The article gives no hint of the put options on the targeted airlines, warnings received by government and corporate officials, complicit behavior by top officials, obstruction of justice by a much larger group, or obvious frauds in the official story. Instead it attacks a mere 16 claims of its choosing, which it asserts are the "most prevalent" among "conspiracy theorists."
