Union Bricklayers to Picket Criterion Chemical Plant in Pittsburgh, CA

San Francisco Bay Area, 31.03.2005 05:20

3/30/2005 Union bricklayers representing the northern 46 counties in California will be picketing Recon Refractory Services at the Criterion Catalyst Technologies Plant in Pittsburgh, CA on April 1 at 7:00 am, and again for the week of April 4, 2005, to express their concerns that Recon Refractory Services does not meet safety, area wage, and benefit standards. The Criterion Catalyst Technologies Plant in Pittsburgh is located at 2840 Willow Pass Road off Highway 4 at Bailey Road.
The Bricklayers and Allied Craftsworkers Local #3 of Northern CA have a NLRB Settlement in regards to this contractor. Work being performed at this time by Recon is in violation of the settlement. In light of the recent events at BP oil refinery in Texas City, Texas, Union organizers contend that Recons practices could expose plant personnel and the local community to unnecessary risk. "Fifteen people died and eight more are in critical condition at area hospitals. At least 100 people were injured, officials said. The massive blast shook buildings and broke windows for miles around and sent a huge cloud of black smoke billowing into the sky. Refinery equipment and buildings nearby were leveled, leaving a rubble-filled landscape reminiscent of a war zone at the 1,200-acre complex 35 miles southeast of Houston" According to reports on Labor Net, a spokesperson for the Pipefitters stated the tragedy was caused by the use of non-union personnel who are untrained and unskilled for this type of work.

Fayetteville's Community Access Television Celebrates 25 years!

Arkansas, 31.03.2005 03:01

I don’t remember exactly when it was that I first made use of Community Access TV, but if I remember correctly, it was around the time that I was involved with a group which was attempting to put an end to the City of Fayetteville’s reckless use of herbicides in public places. That places my first involvement with this wonderful form of media around 1988.



FBI subpoenas the flag.blackened.net Server

Aotearoa, 31.03.2005 02:21

The FBI has recently sent two subpoenas to the website administrator of the flag.blackened.net webserver. Recently there have been rumours circulating in anarchist circles the flag's webmaster had been contacted by the FBI, he has released this press release to notify the wider activist community on what has been going on. The Flag server host many of anarchism's most widely viewed websites and the removal of this sever would be a major blow to anarchist organising worldwide.

He has been ordered on two separate occasions to submit IP information of people using certain subdomains hosted on the flag server one of which was the popular Infoshop News. These relate to people claiming responsibility for "propaganda by the deed". The moderator believes at least one of these cases are by people trying to make the flag server "vulnerable to government intrusion".

The FBI in recent years, has gone after a number of radical/revolutionary left wing websites, most notably are the shutting down of the raise the fist website and subsequent jailing of it's webmaster Sherman Austin and also targeting many /a> on the Indymedia network.

Biscuit Protesters Block Street in front of Forest Service

Portland, 31.03.2005 00:21

At about 11:30am today, forest activists erected a giant tri-pod in the middle of 2nd Avenue, in front of the Forest Service building. They blocked traffic and made a ruckus to bring attention to the insane and illegal logging that is commencing down in the Siskiyous.

Thank God there are so many people willing to put their words, their freedom, and their bodies on the line in this great struggle for the last ancient forests in the world. It was awe inspiring to see so many people chanting, singing, and speaking out to save what is left of our planet.

Pax eloquently ministered to the crowd from his perch in the air above 2nd avenue, and the crowd chanted their support from the ground. A corporate "reporter" asked whether he knew he was about to be cut down and arrested, to which he replied that he did. The "reporter" then asked how he felt about it. Pax said, basically, that it sucked to have to be arrested, but that it was a small price to pay. He reminded the reporter -- who will never air the words I think -- that the last forests are falling, and desperate times call for desperate measures. The police moved in, blocking traffic and milling around for awhile, trying to figure out what to do.

Where Boston's bikers go to retire

Boston, 30.03.2005 23:01

Chris Grealish’s first thoughts of leaving Boston were inspired by bone-crushing accidents. In his three years riding as a courier he received a broken collar bone, a demobilizing blow to the hip, stitches on a gruesomely torn upper lip, lost skin on his hands, legs and arms, and a knee swelled up to the size of a grapefruit. Instead of vacations, Grealish was often forced to take unpaid downtime to heal his wounds. He claims he averaged one accident or serious altercation with a cabdriver every three months. Yet he loved the job. “I had no formal education. I found something that I wanted to do and I was really good at it. Having that taken away was pretty alarming,” says Grealish 42, “It became very apparent that my shelf life was limited.”



Police Brutality in Port au Prince puts UN Mandate to the Test

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

On Monday February 28 Haitian National Police opened fire on several thousand unarmed demonstrators in Bel Air, killing five and wounding dozens. Brazilian troops, part of the United Nations MINUSTAH mission in Haiti, witnessed the incident and did not intervene at the time.

This is not the first time that the UN has witnessed extrajudicial executions by the Haitian National Police without intervening. In fact they have been directly involved in training the police so they are not merely casual observers but also shoulder a heavy burden of responsibility for the widespread police violence since the overthrow of the democratically elected government.

Namaste from India!

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

I stayed in Delhi for a few days before making the long journey north to Dharamsala, home of the Dalai Lama and many exiled Tibetans. A favorite place of mine in India, it felt like home the first that I visited, over four years ago.

I arrived in the early morning hours, in the dark rain with nowhere to go. I had heard that due to the Dalai Lama's teachings there were no rooms available. So, I ended up going a mile or so out from the main area of upper Dharamsala (or McLeod Gang as it's called) to a smaller community called Bhagsunag. I had been to this area before, but only to visit briefly during the day. I figured that I would remain here until a room opened up in McLeod Gang, since that is where I had Indian and Kashmiri friends, and where I wanted to hang out.

Now, more than two weeks later, I remain in Bhagsunag. The McLeod Gang that I once knew and loved has changed. Busy, noisy and growing fetid, the magic of this place is largely gone for me.

Small Victories for Critical Mass Lead to Better Biking

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

CM this friday, was actually not bad! for the last two years, it's been a constant barrage of harrasement and brutality by the police. the noticeable exception was january's ride, when the Mayor rode with us (big props to the Mayor for having the political guts to stand up for us). no tickets were issued that ride. we thought it may be the return of the Golden Age of CM. february proved us horribly wrong, with no mayor and a whole bunch of harrasment, tickets, and motorcycle cops.

apparently, due to pressure from a handful of dedicated bikers from Shift to Bikes.org, the police heirarchy has agreed to only have bicycle cops follow the ride. yes, i know this sounds like a hollow victory, after all, we're still being policed. but, compared to the last couple years of beat-downs, this was a vast improvement. i don't think any tickets were given to cyclists, just a few verbal warnings. that's one of the first official CM rides we've had without a slew of tickets in the last two years! and apparently, that's the new protocall for dealing with CM, issue verbal warnings first, then ticket second, and bicycle cops only, no moto-pigs.

Temporary Restraining Order on Biscuit Logging Denied

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

Regrettably, the Temporary Restraining Order sought by Cascadia Wildland Project (alongside The National Forest Protection Alliance, Native Forest Network, and Klamath Forest Alliance) was not granted on appeal by the 9th Circuit.

This DOES NOT mean that this, nor the other lawsuit filed by the Siskiyou Project (along with American Lands Alliance, Defenders of Wildlife, Pacific Rivers Council, Sierra Club, and The Wilderness Society), will not eventually stop the logging in the Biscuit -- it just means that logging will continue for at least another few weeks until the next round of legal battles.

Updates on this and other legal matters below...

Corporate Media is a Disease

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

I already realized that, of course, but it became just so abundantly clear this morning when I listened to ABC Radio News.

The contents (such as they were) were a detailed update on the Terri Schaivo case, a report on how Martha Stewart dislikes her monitoring legband, an update on the status a few other Hollywood celebrities, a report on the Pope's health, and a report on Prince Rainier's health. The Martha Stewart and Terri Schaivo reports were by far the most detailed, especially the latter.

Ahh, yes, Schaivo. If there's any better example of a non-news item that's being endlessly repeated in order to distract human sheep from thinking about real news, I can't think of one.



Baghdad resident remembers two years ago

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

We've completed two years since the beginning of the war. These last two years have felt like two decades, but I can remember the war itself like it was yesterday.

The sky was lit with flashes of red and white and the ground rocked with explosions on March 21, 2003. The bombing had actually begun on the dawn of the 20th of March, but it got really heavy on the 21st. I remember being caught upstairs when the heavier bombing first began. I was struggling to drag down a heavy cotton mattress from my room for an aunt who was spending a couple of weeks with us and I suddenly heard a faraway 'whiiiiiiiiiiiiiz' that sounded like it might be getting closer.

I began to rush then- pulling and pushing at the heavy mattress; trying to half throw, half haul it down stairs. I got stuck halfway down the staircase and, at that point, the whizzing sound had grown so loud, it felt like it was coming out of my head.



&quot;Face of Love&quot; - a report from a Cascadian in India

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

The expanse of the eastern sky opened up and from the top of the Himalayas a mighty rain fell. All day and all night, for two long days and three nights, with no bursts of sun or hint of cessation. Sometimes it came down so fast and furious that we all shifted our attention to witness this astonishing act of nature, fat rain drops pounding on and bouncing off the pavement. At times the drops were fewer, giving enough of a reprieve so that we can rush to our next destination.

But is this an act of nature or are we witnessing something else? The people who have lived in this place for many years say that this weather is very uncharacteristic, as were the snowfalls that blanketed them on three separate occasions a short while back. They shake their head in disbelief, as they sit and watch and wait and worry. Too much rain sends the tourists scrambling for warmer, drier, sunnier locales; business drops as does the spirits of the men with families to feed.

I have heard from travelers all around the world about the bizarre weather that their country has experienced this year. In my own home, the rain was scant, the dry deserts of California usurping it from us. There, mudslides and flooding claimed lives and homes. Forest fires are assured for Oregon, the rainfall way below average this year.

Peter Young, animal rights activist and accused mink liberator, arrested

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

Peter Young was arrested on March 21st in San Jose, CA. He has been "WANTED" since 1998 after being indicted on charges of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act by releasing mink from a Wisconsin fur farm.

Peter has been able to make a couple of calls out, and received his first visitor today BUT he has now been told that he had forfeited "all his rights" and his phone privileges have been revoked because he refused to take a non-vegan TB test. As a result he is now being held in high security isolation - unable to make phone calls or trade for food. Since being jailed the only thing Peter has been given that he can actually eat is a small amount of lettuce. Peter desperately needs our help so that he can remain in touch with his supporters and start getting food he can eat.

&quot;Grandma Joan&quot; Spends 14th Day in Jail

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

Joan Norman, 72, of Cave Junction was arrested on March 14 during a demonstration blocking logging trucks from entering Fiddler Mountain, part of the Biscuit timber sale in the Siskiyou National Forest. This was Joan's second arrest that week. The courts revoked her conditional release due to her "repeat defender" status. There have been 48 arrests since logging began in Old-Growth reserves on March 7th; Joan Norman is the only activist to remain behind bars. Norman will not post bail as a matter of principle.

Supporters are launching a "Joanathon" fund-raiser in her honor: "Joan is sacrificing her freedom, her access to fresh air and sunshine, each day that she is in jail. Her commitment to the defense of the forest is inspiring. I challenge us all to make a donation to the Biscuit Legal Fund in her honor. This money will contribute toward ongoing legal challenges against the Forest Service plan of destruction," said Shelley Elkovich of Ashland.

Econ 101: Opportunities After Economic Collapse

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

In December 2001, the economy of Argentina collapsed resulting in the closure of hundreds of factories and service industries. "The Take", a documentary by Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis, covers three examples of over 250 cases in which workers have occupied and ran factories. The film explores many perspectives from that of a former factory owner challenging the expropriation of a facility by workers, court intervention, worker-initiated legislative actions at the local government level, direct actions involving confrontations with riot police, national electoral politics, and the personal stories of peoples lives.

The economic collapse created the opportunity for workers to expropriate factories after owners abandoned them. "The Take" provides evidence that it's not necessary to have a top-heavy executive management structure to run a sophisticated business like those producing garments, ceramics, tractors, ice cream or health care services. It also shows that doing so is extremely challenging both in practical terms and in the personal emotional toll. Such challenges might be mitigated by advanced preparation.

The anticipation of, and preparation for an economic crisis would seem to improve the chances of success during the post-crisis period. This topic will be explored further in a series of articles entitled "Econ 101" to be published on Indymedia sites. Collectively owned businesses are good examples of people taking steps in that direction. Their collective efforts increase their political and economic independence, making them better prepared for potential future economic dislocation in the United States.



The Bio-Diesel Expansion

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

There appears to be a new market for biodiesel. This is beyond cars, trucks, or buses, but now includes aircraft. The USDA has being doing research with biodiesel and believes that an avaition formulation is possible. The ramifications are that while aircraft travel is not a personal need, I much prefer the exhaust of that industry having the impact like french fries smell than what is being burnt now. And if farmers can make a few extra bucks doing it, cool. read more...

Update From the Pizza Time Lockout, in Olympia

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

Olympia Pizza Time franchise owner Richard Kelley locked out all nine striking workers by closing the store on Feb. 21st. The last negotiations between Pizza time workers and Kelley broke down when Kelley insisted he would open the store if workers accepted wages below state law. Pizza time workers refused Kelley's unreasonable condition.

Pizza Time workers took their case to the National Labor Relations Board. A federal investigator interviewed the workers and Kelley. The investigator informed the workers that federal labor law offers no protection from owners who close their own stores. Pizza Time workers are in need of a labor lawyer.

On March 8th Pizza Time workers joined in solidarity with the Global Women's Strike. The Global Women's Strike is a day to recognize the value in work women do, most of which is not paid or is underpaid, and for women around the world to realize the power and autonomy they have when they stand together. Pizza time workers made pizzas and helped feed local women on strike for the day.

Bald-faced lies in Portland Tribune's snotty coverage of FBI's PJTTF press conference exposed on portland indymedia

Portland, 30.03.2005 22:01

With "Jordan offers up a 'sparkling' retort", a fluff piece in the current Portland Tribune about one small part of the FBI's PJTTF press conference last week, the reporter responsible has outed herself as superficial, snotty, and a liar. Which is par for the course for the corporate media, but always worth pointing out, especially when there's clear audio/video evidence to prove it.

Even though she targeted an indymedia activist in her story, the Portland Tribune writer apparently didn't pay any attention to the content on the portland indymedia website about the same event. If she had, she might have reconsidered delivering up the piece of schlock that she did. First, the article, "A fresh breeze blowing through City Hall; Potter and Leonard's resolution challenging the PJTTF" takes aim mostly at the corporate media's behavior that day, criticizing local reporters for not digging deeply, asking hard questions or taking the issues seriously. Which she does, splendidly, in her cute little piece. Secondly, the audio of the event was posted to the site as well. Anyone can go listen to it and hear quite clearly that she is LYING. Jordan does not answer the question "matter-of-factly"; he just spouts more rehetoric. Go ahead, read the text or listen to it yourself. It's not that the reporter is merely being charitable or fauning (as they often are around people like Jordan); she's actually creating something out of thin air that's not there in the first place.

i'm not going to call this reporter "stupid". i find it difficult to believe that anyone could interpret Jordan's War-On-Terror-ese non-sequitor as "matter-of-fact". Instead, like many of the others in her industry, the only explanation must be that she personal supports Special Agent Jordan and the draconian methods of the FBI, and is expressing that support through the production of slap-dash, low-quality, trivializing, misleading & mischaracterizing "journalism" like the article in question. That's what makes what she did a LIE, and not merely a "difference in opinion". It wasn't an error, or a lack of intelligence -- it was purposeful.

Corporate media people are just about the lowest form of life on earth.



Counter Recruiting Victory: NYPD Rescinds Policy Barring 1st Amendment Activity in Front of Schools

NYC, 30.03.2005 22:01

(from the Open Newswire): The New York City Police Department has agreed to rescind a policy by which it was prohibiting all First Amendment activity on public sidewalks in front of schools. The NYCLU brought the case on behalf of the Ya-Ya Network in October 2003 after students working with the group were threatened with arrest outside of schools for handing out literature informing students of their rights to keep personal information from military recruiters and of the risks of relying on promises made by recruiters.

NEW YORK -- A memo signed by Lieutenant General Ricardo A. Sanchez authorizing 29 interrogation techniques, including 12 which far exceeded limits established by the Army's own Field Manual, was made public for the first time by the ACLU today. "General Sanchez authorized interrogation techniques that were in clear violation of the Geneva Conventions and the Army's own standards," said ACLU attorney Amrit Singh. "He and other high-ranking officials who bear responsibility for the widespread abuse of detainees must be held accountable."

Arguments Before the Supreme Court to Shape the Future of Internet Speech

NYC, 30.03.2005 18:03

According to the ACLU, "two cases heard by the Supreme Court yesterday will help determine whether the Internet remains the open forum for free speech that it has always been. One is a case having to do with the legality of file-sharing software (MGM. v. Grokster, 04-480), and the other involves whether the government will regulate monopolistic providers of Internet access (FCC v. Brand X, 04-281)."

Harold Feld sums up yesterday's arguments: "There are advantages to being a member of the Supreme Court Bar. One is, you get to go and hear the arguments from the Supreme Court Bar section. Guess what I did today! While you will get tons of info from other websites, this is probably the only place you will see someone say that Justice Rehnquist now sounds like a bad combination of Darth Vader and the Emperor from "Return of the Jedi."

SF Board of Supes Decides to Enact Moratorium on New Marijuana Dispensaries

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.03.2005 09:00

3/29/05: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted 9-0 today in support of a moratorium on the opening of new marijuana dispensaries. After the negative press that marijuana dispensaries have gotten in the last several weeks, some people have seen this outcome as inevitable. Hemp Evolution and Indybay reporter Freeman said, "What was surprising was the large number of medical cannabis supporters who spoke in favor of the moratorium in light of the City's attempt to restrict safe access to medical cannabis, and were all too willing to accept increased regulation by the City. A handful of patients spoke out against the moratorium on the basis that it will limit access and drive patients into the black market."

The resolution, which was sponsored by District 5 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, calls for a forty-five day initial moratorium that could be extended, until permanent means can be put in place to limit the proliferation of dispensaries. The media storm around the opening of a new dispensary in the same building as a residential hotel where many recovering addicts live led to the realization that there are over 35 marijuana dispensaries in San Francisco. A Land Use Committee hearing will reportedly be held at City Hall's Room 263 on April 25th at 2 PM to address the regulation of cannabis dispensaries. Read more
br />Earlier in the day, Freeman reported that there was a meeting sponsored by Capt. Dennis O'Leary of the Southern Station of the SFPD. Head Narc, Capt. Tim Hettrich and old friend, Sgt. Marty Halloran [the SFPD dispensary inspector] were there. Representatives from Supervisor Daly's office, the DA's office, the City Attorney's office and the Planning Dept. were also in attendance. All present seemed to be in agreement that there are many issues dispensaries and SOMA residents need to discuss in order to improve area quality of life, while serving the needs of the many patients seeking compassion from MendoHealing and other neighborhood dispensaries.

4/7: Benefit for Willow Rosenthal’s Medical Needs

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.03.2005 08:00

Friends of Willow and the Transit Workers Solidarity Committee are organizing a benefit for Willow Rosenthal's medical needs. Willow Rosenthal was permanently injured by the Oakland Police when they were dispersing a protest against the war on Iraq on April 7th, 2003. She was one of 60 people who were wounded when the OPD opened fire on nonviolent protesters and workers with wooden bullets, shot-filled sacks, and concussion grenades; and charged people with motorcycles for two hours. The event will take place on Thursday April 7th, 2005, at 7 pm, at Café Van Kleef (21 and over), near Telegraph and 17th. Willow's friends are encouraging people to either spread the word about the benefit, to show up on April 7th, or to donate money to help with Willow's medical expenses.

Musical performers at the event will include Andrea Pritchett, Shelley Doty & Friends, and Henri Ducharme with TaraLinda playing New French music and beyond. There will also be a spoken word performance and a screening of “Shots on the Docks” the documentary depicting the events at the Oakland Docks. "Shots on the Docks" was made by Steve Zeltzer of the Labor Video Project. Speakers will include Jack Heyman, an ILWU activist who was arrested by police on April 7th, 2003 and who fought and won bogus charges against him; and Antonia Juhasz, who is a writer about corporate globalization and how it relates to the war on Iraq and is also an antiwar educator and organizer. A member of the Campaign for Community Safety and Police Accountability will also speak.

Klamath River Tribes, Fishermen Rally To Remove Dams

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.03.2005 07:20

In an unprecedented show of unity, hundreds of members of the Yurok, Hoopa Valley, Karuk and Klamath tribes rallied in support of the removal of dams on the Klamath in front of the State Capitol on March 14. After marching from Riverfront Park in Sacramento, the group, including many attired in traditional tribal dress, converged on the capitol and urged Governor Schwarzenegger to serve as “Conan the Riparian” by increasing state efforts to restore the Klamath River’s beleaguered salmon populations. The salmon runs are now blocked by six dams owned by PacifiCorp, a subsidiary of Scottish Power based in Glasgow, Scotland. Historically, the Klamath produced up to 1.1 million adult fish annually, including chinook, coho, pink and chum salmon, as well as abundant steelhead. According to Tucker, the Klamath River fall run chinook salmon productivity is now less than 8 percent of its historical abundance. Coho salmon, once the “workhorse” of the West Coast fishing industry, are less than one percent, while chum and pink salmon are extinct. Full report here.

Albion students organize teach-in on peace and justice for April 9

Michigan, 30.03.2005 04:01

ALBION, MI – Albion College Peace Action will hold a teach-in for peace and justice activists all day on Saturday, April 9, 2005, at Albion College to mark the 40th anniversary of the famous University of Michigan Teach-In against the Vietnam War.

The “Michigan Teach-In on Peace and Justice”—organized by Albion College students—was conceived initially in protest against the Bush administration’s war in Iraq.
