Portland should limit its acquisition of PGE/Enron to municipal boundaries

Portland, 03.05.2005 21:20

Portland Metro Pacific Green Party Chair opines that Portland should limit its municipal takeover of PGE to city boundaries as a way to ensure that it can control its destiny. It is possible that Portland could acquire all of PGE territory and lose control of a board of directors and discover it has minimal voice in its electricity destiny.Portland should condemn Portland General Electric assetts in Portland only, avoid a purchase of PGE "stock" and avoid collaborating with conservative interests outside of Portland that do not share Portland's values about ecology and sustainability.

Roger Mentch Gets Leniency from Courts

Santa Cruz, CA, 03.05.2005 18:26

Sentencing for local medical marijuana provider Roger Mentch, took place May 2, in the chambers of Superior Court Judge Samuel Stevens. Nearly two years ago, the Santa Cruz County Sheriffs drug task force raided the Felton home of Roger Mentch, managing director of the Hemporium, a medical marijuana consultant and delivery service, with about 20 clients.

The prosecutor who tried the case, Thanh Ngo, argued for a 150 day jail sentence and demanded the DA's office retain all evidence, particularly the cash seized by sherrif's deputies. Judge Stevens handed down, a 5-day jail sentence, giving Mentch credit for time served, and summary probation for 3 years. He was also ordered to pay $220 in court costs. Throughout the hearing, Judge Stevens repeatedly stipulated Mentch could continue to operate his marijuana deliveries, saying, "If he wishes to conduct himself under the law, he will not be in violation of probation." Read more...

Roger Mentch comments: First and foremost I want too thank eveyone that has played a part in supporting me/us in this medical marijuana battle. We are very happy with the verdict, timed served and probation and a $220 fine. A different outcome could of easily distroyed this family unit and the service we provide for many local patients. After my sentencing today I signed documents starting the appeals process. Read the full comment...

Another commenter writes: While Roger and friends were pretty happy about the sentence (no jail time), it still leaves unsettled the question of why Mentch was prosecuted in the first place to the tune of $80,000 in public funds (or so says Mentch) and if he can be prosecuted again for selling medical marijuana to patients with medical marijuana cards. What was never clear to me (perhaps someone can enlighten me?) is what was illegal about what Roger Mentch did in 2003 that prompted his eightteen month ordeal. Read the full comment...

Telecom winner of 2004 Roger Award

Aotearoa, 03.05.2005 13:02

Telecom has been announced the winner of 2004 Roger Award. The award is for "The Worst Transnational Corporation operating in New Zealand".

2nd place was awarded to Contact Energy, while Ernslaw One came 3rd place. A Special Award for Protection of Profit & Priviledge was given to New Zealand Government

To quote the Judges’ Report (PDF), Telecom won because: "The massive profit figures which this company posts year by year are a national scandal... This is a company whose name is a byword for the failure of privatisation. It is the largest community parasite in New Zealand and its stifling, negative impact cannot be underestimated… Telecom has betrayed the trust and hopes placed in it to run our telephone and telecommunications systems…This is a friendless, rapacious company with well established and unmediated parasitical practices".

Contact was the runner-up primarily because it "has run an ideological campaign against Kyoto (Treaty) and the use of renewable energy sources… running a crusade to convince the public that coal-fired power stations are the only option for a secure future energy supply… responsible for environmental damage and wilful negligence regarding health and safety of the community" (in Waikato and Taranaki). Ernslaw One came third because it "is having a big impact on workers – Maori on the East Coast especially – with thousands of job losses projected… impact on health and safety of the public - based on their proposal for a sawmilling complex near Whangapoua Harbour (Coromandel)". The judges awarded the Government a Special Roger Award for Protection of Profit and Privilege: "It seemed clear that if we were to have a government focussed on the protection of people and the environment, rather than on protecting corporate profit making then there may be no need for the Roger Award".

Euromayday: Precari@s Take Over Hackney Tesco Supermarket

United Kingdom, 03.05.2005 09:30

On Mayday, 700 people in London were waiting for a text message directing them towards this years Euromayday flexmob action. Although the messages were delayed, and despite intimidating police behaviour on the train and in the street, several hundred made their way to Hackney in north London to participate in a widely advertised yet highly secret Mayday stunt [report].

Bewildered shoppers in a local Tesco store were treated to a free samba performance and vouchers entitling them to just about everything from restaurant meals to films to supermarket goods. A large banner declared that "All we have to loose are our chainstores". For 15 minutes, dancing and rhythm prevailed. Workers at the tills and customers relaxed, even the security started jigging - until the metropolitan police stormed in with a vengeance. Some of the pink invaders were heavily stopped and searched, until they left the store to the cheers of bystanders and shoppers. [report | pics]

This could have been the end of the action - but the police had other plans. The band and some precari@s spent 2 hours in a tight police corral across the street, filmed by the everpresent F.I.T. team. Bystanders were pushed into the corral. Four or five people were violently arrested. [report]

After some negotiation, the group was escorted along Mare Street inside a police crocodile, but with the large banner displayed along the edges. Supporters followed on the pavement, constantly hassled by police. The release of the protesters into London Fields ressembled the release of cattle into their grazing grounds. The police charged once more to arrest more people, bringing the total up to 10 or 11 [pics 1 | 2]. After another hour of filming, they left everybody to quitely end the MayDay out.

While San Diego's upscale progressive community, from feely-goody new age yuppies and aging hippies to the power liberals who run the pitiful left-wing response to Bushism in San Diego, flocked to the corporate sponsored Earth Day festival, May 1st; others, workers around the world, refused to give up the their traditional day to celebrate the world's

Arizona Dream

San Diego, 03.05.2005 08:01

A team of journalists from Radioactive San Diego and San Diego Indymedia are sent to the Arizona/Sonora border region, where a group of armed volunteers known as the Minutemen Project has decided to camp by the border to stop the flow of undocumented migrants. During their first night in Douglas, Arizona, the San Diego journalists get chased down by the Border Patrol. Crossing the border into Agua Prieta, Sonora, a former coyote relates to them his life story and concludes: “risks are big, but necessity is bigger.” At the border, they meet Jim Gilchrist, the first Minutemen, who reveals he opposes “powerful corporate enterprise,” considers Mexican migrants to be “economic refugees,” and that he babysits his Mexican grandchild every Sunday.

Solidarity shines through on a rainy May Day, Part 2

Boston, 03.05.2005 08:01

Sunday, May 1st BOSTON- Felix Arroyo, Maria Elena Letona of Centro Presente, and many others spoke in front of a damp but festive crowd of more than 500 representing immigrant communities from all over Greater Boston and Eastern Massachusetts this Sunday in Copley Square. For this one day a year and, as one young speaker expressed, hopefully for the other 364, widely disparate immigrant communities joined together to address and rally around the issues that affect them all. Counter protestors did show up, but were largely ignored at their spot far to one side of the rally, save for the corporate press who can’t resist portraying every political story as a perfectly evenly balanced battle of wits. Sorry, not this time. What I saw was a building of community. People who, usually divided by neighborhood, disparate needs, cultures, or languages, came together to address some issues common to all.



May Day 2005 in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 03.05.2005 06:21

On May Day 2005 in San Cruz, the Wobblies marched from the Tom Scribner statue to a rally at the Clock Tower. Rabble rousers played guitar, sang and spoke about the past, present and future of the labor movement. Speakers and singers included Faith Petric, Fred Hirsch, Mark Levy, David Winters, Fellow Worker Will and Brian from the Santa Cruz General Membership Branch of the International Workers of the World.

After the rally, we marched down Pacific Ave. and gained the support of many onlookers as we chanted, "We Don't Need the Bosses, the Bosses Need Us!!!"

For better or worse, there were more people that wanted to watch The Wobblies than could fit into the main dartroom of the Poet & Patriot. Those of us that did not make it into the film screening celebrated 100 years of the International Workers of the World (IWW) with a live performance of Rebel Girl by Phil Free and a birthday cake.

Solidarity shines through on a rainy May Day

Boston, 03.05.2005 03:01

SUNDAY, May 1st- A rainy May Day kept many marchers away but a small and jubilant crowd of celebrants gathered for a march called by BAAM in downtown Boston. (http://baamboston.org/) To the peal of a bugle call, marchers waving Anarcho-syndicalist Black and Red flags, beating on plastic drums, and chanting took to the streets. The crowd left the Boston Common, wound around the public garden, and enthusiastically sounded out chants down Newbury. Along the way standers-by were handed informative, well written flyers about the history of May Day and the Haymarket Martyrs. One group of men, looking haggard and dusty from a morning’s work, read the flyers intently while waiting for a bus. They each admitted it was the first time they had ever heard of the international labor day.



Portlanders Display Resistance to CAFTA

Portland, 03.05.2005 02:01

About 200 people showed up to protest CAFTA. From all indication, it seems that Earl Blumenauer will vote with Gordon Smith and the other Republicans on this one. Call his office at 503.231.2300 to voice your opposition. Ask Earl to say it loud and proud: "I support fair trade and will vote NO on CAFTA."

Speakers included: Madelyn Elder, Pres. CWA Local 7901; Tim Nesbitt Director, OR AFL-CIO; Diego from the Amalgamzated Sugar plant in Nyssa (he drove 6 hours to get there!); Mary Mendez from Enlace America; and David Foster from the District 11 Steelworkers. They focused mostly on Oregon job loss, but Mary did speak about the lies that sold NAFTA to Mexican workers. Now we know that these agreements screw workers on both sides of the equation: US and Central America.

Activist Research: When research and activism merge

The activist research becomes an instrument of critical transformation of reality, generating changes and making conflicts visible, constituting thus another element of social mobilisation.
For the activist researcher, activism isn't his "object of study" it's rather a part of his life. An activist *Researcher* gives priority to collective and cooperative processes of knowledge production and goes beyond the academy. He contributes to denounce the commercialisation and privatization of knowledge, and the current trend towards more precarious situations

On May 7th the UCSC Anarchist Research Cluster and the Center for Cultural Studies will host a one-day conference and conversation exploring and contextualizing contemporary anarchism. Organizing questions include: How can we think adequately about anarchism’s place in current social justice movements? What resources does anarchism present us for addressing the current moment?

The conference will include two panels with ample time for discussion, and an extended lunch discussion. Conference speakers include Iain Boal, Arif Dirlik, Carwil James, John Holloway, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Barry Pateman, Roger White, and Eddie Yuen.

Hundreds Demonstrate and March in Celebration of May Day

Portland, 02.05.2005 02:22

We met in the North Park Blocks and there were speakers from unions, farmworkers, anarchists and Code Pink. Someone put up a maypole and unionists, anarchists, children, a farm worker and other people took hold of the ribbons that walked the may pole.

There were several hundred people who walked to the INS where speakers talked about legislation and corporation around immigrants and farm workers. Someone tried to burn a flag there and someone else tried to take it away and after a short tussle, the flag was given back and we all walked on.

We walked a mile or so to the World Trade Center where there was a banner strung across the street celebrating free trade. It was hard to hear the speakers because they did not have any kind of amplifying device.
