Government Enforced Ageism in America

Portland, 11.02.2005 05:31

Today, I decided to walk down to Pioneer Square to talk with some other activists about Portland's current condition. All of a sudden, someone stopped me to ask my age. I told him I was fifteen. He then replied, "Well that makes my job incredibly hard, because you have to be 18 to sign this petition." I then asked him what the petition was for. He replied, "It's to help the government sponsor destitution struck children living without a school to go to." I walked away, knowing I couldn't do anything to be able to sign that petition.

The reason I'm writing this article is because this needs to stop now. A petition is an act of power to change something, enforced by the people. I can understand, partially, some of government enforced laws that are ageist, but this defiantly draws the line. How could the youth be denied the right to sign a petition? We can't vote, we have many laws and discrimination against us during protests, and now we cannot even sign a petition. I feel like my voice has been silenced by the government, just because of my age. Am I officially stupid just because I am 15? I don't understand. And why can I not be able to sign something as little as a petition. I thought not being aloud to vote was discrimination, but this by far is the most horrible law against the youth. We now are silenced completely. Why is there laws silencing our voice, when we are just as important as anyone older than us? That I don't understand.

Earth First! Demands Mountain Justice

Tennessee, 11.02.2005 05:22

Several members of Nashville's newly formed chapter of Earth First! gathered in front of Nashville's L&C Tower in downtown Nashville to demand an end to mountain top strip mining.

Mahmoud Abbas And Ariel Sharon Meet In Egypt

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.02.2005 02:17

On Tuesday February 8th 2005, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas meet with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in Sharm El-Sheikh Egypt and announced an end to four years of hostilities. While many Palestinians were guardedly optimistic, others said they saw nothing new, having grown tired of summits that have become meaningless by their abundance. "It's the same old same old. So many summits have come and gone. Besides, it is only security related, nothing more. And if there is no binding agenda, the summit will fail. This is just a delaying tactic being used by Sharon," said 38-year-old Nahla al-Natur. "We have so many decisions in the past-why doesn't the international community force Israel to abide by them instead of coming up with new summits?"



Anarchist Postal Service: The Unofficial Messengers of Free Communication

Portland, 11.02.2005 00:51

The Anarchist Postal Service is a new group that's looking for help. Essentially we need volunteers to operate, specifically those with bikes. If you've always wanted to be a messenger but didn't like the idea of running packages for big sleazy businesses, or if you're just looking to help people out, our organization might be just the thing for you! We'll be getting together for meetings and various events once we have a real membership. The service itself will not be able to take many requests until it has more than a couple members, so check us out, and get involved!

White Lilac says: I think this is a great idea--best thing I've heard all week. My concern is that it isn't sustainable. 37 cents is damn hard to beat. What we need to make this work is for people who use the service to contribute something back to these messengers--food, work, goods, etc. The website says that donations are accepted ... but is that going to really sustain this effort?

Michigan Greens Skeptical of Granholm's Goals with &quot;State of State&quot;

Michigan, 10.02.2005 20:40

Members of the Green Party of Michigan (GPMI) had decidedly mixed reactions to yesterday's "State of the State" speech by Governor Granholm. They recognize that some small steps promoted and proposed by Granholm are aimed in the right directions, but they have serious doubts about her ultimate destination on any of the issues she mentioned . . . not to mention the issues she left out.



Workers in California Struggle to Save Lunchbreaks

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.02.2005 18:59

On December 10th, 2004, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency and announced that he was going to take away California workers' lunch breaks. He was forced to rescind the "emergency" status of his rule changes, but he is still attacking the guaranteed right to a lunch break for California workers. The Governator's rule changes would weaken workers' rights to breaks and meal periods and would shorten the amount of time that employers can be held liable for refusing to provide them. Wal-Mart and other companies that are being sued for cheating their workers out of lunch breaks could be off the hook if these changes go into effect.

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.02.2005 05:37

2/09/05: An evangelical Christian group in Fresno California has just received a grant from the Bush administration to mentor the children of prisoners.

I was told that these attacks took place in the Saint John's area. I will be posting more as I find out the details. fill in the blanks >>

Students and Teachers Speak Out to Make SVHS a Safe Space

Santa Cruz, CA, 10.02.2005 01:04

More than 300 students, parents, teachers, and administrators turned out at Scotts Valley High School on February 7 for a special board meeting to address charges that the school promotes a "Gay Agenda." Board members determined that Scotts Valley High is acting in compliance with AB 537, The California Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act of 2000 which prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity in California public schools.

By far the most moving and important words came from students and from teachers. They spoke of the need for open dialogue and education about issues regarding safety and respect. They spoke of the ways they have gone about creating a space for this dialogue and education. They showed that there are problems at the school and that the faculty and administration have identified ways that they can and should be dealt with. They spoke of vandalism, intimidation, fear, violence, name-calling, intolerance. They spoke of communication, solutions, encouraging discussion, education, and dialogue. In short, they demonstrated before the large assembled crowd that they are doing their jobs in a way that deserves our applause.

Global Warming Awareness Day is February 16th

Madison, 09.02.2005 22:11

Next Wednesday marks the day the world's first global warming treaty becomes effective, but without having the benefit of participation by the U.S., is the treaty doomed to failure? Let's hope not. The international treaty on global climate change - the Kyoto Protocol - will take effect on February 16, 2005, with 140 of the world's nations participating. The treaty establishes the first binding international commitment by nations to limit their individual and collective greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, believed by the preponderance of the world's scientists to be causing global warming, using an international emissions trading system to promote cost-effective GHG emission reductions.



&quot;Payola&quot; Behind the Ward Churchill Smear Campaign?

Colorado Indymedia reports that an anonymous tipster claiming to work with a "faith-based think tank" is alleging that Clear Channel’s Dan Caplis accepted a "gift" from the unnamed group to spread the biased Ward Churchill story, in an attempt to "frame the left" and the anti-war movement. The source reportedly described it as a ploy to set-up an "Ideological Enemy" on "American Soil" and re-invent Ward Churchill as a "sacrificial lamb." Full story | Colorado Indymedia



Colin Powell to visit Grand Rapids

Michigan, 09.02.2005 19:18

Former secretary of state and four star general Colin Powell will be in Grand Rapids on May 25, to speak at the Economic Club of Grand Rapids' annual dinner. In the past the Economic Club has hosted various conservative speakers such as Newt Gingrich, James Baker, Margaret Thatcher, and Clarence Thomas. This tradition of ultra-right speakers continues with Powell, who while sometimes is mistakenly identified as a "moderate" within the Bush administration, is a conservative in the mold of the first Bush administration rather than the neo-con variety that currently dominates the executive branch. Highlights of Powells career include helping cover-up the My-Lai massacre, providing false testimony during the Iran-Contra hearings (he was a fan of the Contras), being a major proponent of the illegal invasion of Panama, helping prevent a peaceful resolution to the events that led to the first Gulf War, and lying to the U.N. about Iraq's WMD capability in 2003.

Michigan, 09.02.2005 19:12

Whereas the local corporate media has occasionally run stories on local military contracts in terms of the positive contributions such companies are making to "the war on terror," the Media Mouse report was written in order to serve as a catalyst for action. Media Mouse hopes that the report will be considered as a possible means of providing a strategic focus to the local antiwar and peace communities.
