Pay Day Loan Bill Delayed Again

Portland, 21.05.2005 16:33

The vote on Senate Bill 545 (.pdf) - the Pay Day Loan reform bill, was carried over until Monday, 5/23. Despite the fact that the bill has been delayed for two weeks, it is believed to be for logistical and procedural reasons, not a stalling tactic. Previous delays included sick senators. Today's delay was due to the fact that debate on other items on the Senate agenda ran longer than expected so all unfinished business was simply carried over until Monday.

Call your senator! They need to hear from you! Pay Day Loan lobbyists, who have been a large presence in Salem, have taken advantage of the delay to lobby hard against the bill. YOU MUST CALL YOUR SENATOR AND TELL THEM TO SUPPORT SB 545!!!

Corporate Media Spin on Police Murders: When are we going to make it Change?

Portland, 21.05.2005 16:33

It hasnt't taken long for the corporate media to sketch in the faint lines of the life that was wasted yesterday in the cold, gray morning on Burnside. He was a drug addict, an ex-con, he was a "transient." What more can be said? Well, plenty. Before we swallow this lurid portrait laid out for us with all the subtleties of a magik marker set, maybe we need to look deeper. A lot deeper.

You know, I have a friend who insists that the poison of the corporate media is so toxic that it's dangerous even to glance at it briefly. He's right, of course. But after an event like the one we all suffered through yesterday, I often have an inexplicable urge to see what they have to say about it. I know it's foolish. I don't know why I do it. I never even have to crack open a paper or wander past a television set. I already know what they will say. They will perform their function. They will side with the police state, they will demonize the dead, they will protect and exonerate the killers. They will blame the victim of state violence, every single time.

And so they did.

Orioles Owner Charged with Dishonorable Conduct

DC, 21.05.2005 08:03

The United Workers Association announces Union Night protest at Camden Yards, Friday June 17th. Peter Angelos, owner of the Orioles, has refused to honor his commitment to ensure clean up workers earn a living wage. This protest is to show this multi-millionaire that just because workers pick up trash at the stadium, they have honor. As you know the United Workers Association is an organization of low wage and day laborers. We are organizing at the biggest day labor site in Baltimore City, Camden Yards, where the Orioles baseball team plays. We have made a heck of a lot of progress in our campaign: workers now have a voice on the job, a true first for day laborers in the U.S.!

Biscuit Fire &quot;Recovery Project&quot; Too Harm as Many as 100 Rare and Imperiled Wildlife Species

Portland, 21.05.2005 05:22

The Center for Biological Diversity, Cascadia Wildlands Project, Siskiyou Project and five other groups issued a report today documenting that the Biscuit Fire "Recovery Project" could harm as many as 100 rare and imperiled wildlife species. Billed as forest restoration, the "Recovery Project" is actually one of the largest timber sales in national forest history, calling for logging of 370 million board feet or enough to fill a continuous chain of logging trucks from Seattle to Los Angeles. Most of this logging will occur in Old-Growth Reserves and roadless areas.

"Logging thousands of ancient trees in the Siskiyous will have immense impacts on rare and imperiled wildlife," states Noah Greenwald, conservation biologist for the Center for Biological Diversity and primary author of the report. "Many of the species potentially impacted by the logging are found nowhere else on earth."

The report identified at-risk species using data from the Oregon Natural Heritage Program on the distribution of Oregon's imperiled species and on the Forest Service's own Environmental Impact Statement, in which the agency concluded individuals or the habitat of many species would be negatively impacted.

San Diego, 21.05.2005 01:02

The San Diego county Office of Education conducts an annual award called the iVIE. The iVIE is intended to "increase student achievement through visual literacy". The San Diego county office of education includes the County Board of Education, the County Superintendent of Schools and more.

This year, the SD Coutny Office of Education decided to award a film called "Invasion", a pro minutemen film about why they must arm themselves to defend against migrant people. The student who won accepted his award at the red carpet event, where students of many different cultures and ethincities were in attendance, wore a shirt that said "proud to be a vigilante" and was met with a round of applause.

Why is the San Diego office of education doing so much to promote violence against migrant people?

We wtorek, pierwszego lutego, w Nepalu wprowadzono stan wojenny. Wszystkie środki komunikacji zostały odcięte zaraz po tym, jak król Gyanendra ogłosił odwołanie parlamentu i podstawowych praw konstytucyjnych. Połączenia lotnicze zostały zawieszone, drogi zablokowane, a inne środki transportu są opóźnione. Uzbrojone siły przeciwdemonstracyjne stoją w gotowości. Przywódcy głównych partii politycznych, związków zawodowych i studenckich przetrzymywani są w aresztach domowych lub tymczasowych. Wojska stacjonują w siedzibach wydawnictw każdego dziennika w celu cenzurowania materiałów. Strajk maoistów obserwowany jest na zewnątrz Kathamandu.

Smashing the State, Chuck Turner Style

Boston, 20.05.2005 20:02

The angry anarchists tore through Boston’s business district, their banners flying high, their rambunctious chants demanding that the people take to the streets in protest of two years of war in Iraq. O­n the front lines, linked arm in arm with the anarchists, was good old Chuck - Boston’s notorious city councilor. With a bald head, stylish white goatee, and leather jacket, the African-American politician has represented Boston’s District Seven, encompassing much of Boston’s minority community, since 1999. “I’m still impressed by […] Chuck Turner MARCHING with the unpermitted march, then standing up in between cops and the youth they sought to beat or arrest, and going over to the jail, and staying there until 10:30 PM or so,” said Amatul in an o­nline discussion of the March 20th protest posted o­n the website of the Boston Independent Media Center (Indymedia), a local anti-authoritarian news agency. “I really liked his vibe.”

2nd Annual Against The Wal March, Thursday June 2nd

Arkansas, 20.05.2005 19:03

Wal-Mart Call To Action Fayetteville, AR Thursday June 2nd 5pm Walton Arts Center Parking Lot Friday June 3rd 5:30am Bud Walton Arena Since last summer’s shareholders convention which was met with Arkansas‘ first anti-Walmart Protest, Walmart has made little progress toward changing practices which have upset the whole world. From sweatshop exploitation and environmental destruction, to union busting and corporate welfare Walmart has not made any changes toward being more responsible, except with slick PR campaigns and chump change donations to the United Way. So, the Against The Wal Coalition is once again mobilizing to bring the people’s voice to the Beast of Bentonville’s shareholders. On Thursday June 2nd we will march through downtown Fayetteville during happy hour as shareholders from around the world sip cocktails and slap each other on the back. Then join us at 6am in front of the Bud Walton Arena Friday morning for a good-ol’ fashioned picket of the actual convention. Last summer people came from Canada, New York, Oklahoma, and Arizona. Hope to see you in the Ozarks this summer.

Port of Olympia dismantles Mayday Community Garden

Portland, 20.05.2005 17:32

I was walking down State Street on my way to school this morning, when I saw Port of Olympia employees landscaping in the empty lot, which once contained the May Day Community Garden. I asked one of them why the garden had disappeared. He smiled and said it was the orders of the Port, he suggested I call them to complain. He recalled when there was a big garden in that location a few years earlier, according to him it was a place where "all sorts of people, of every age would come and garden."

The Mayday garden was planted this year as part of Olympia's annual May Day celebration. I have been watching it grow over the last few weeks, it has been kept up by volunteers who have been bringing it water, making sure it stays clean and just enjoying it. On the street across form the now defunct garden, was parked a semi carrying a load of tree's; killed and ready for export.

  • Who: NWRAGE
  • What: Protest against GE Bentgrass
  • When: 11a.m. - 3 p.m. Sat., May 21
  • Where: Smith & Hawken, 26 NW 23rd Place
  • Why: To tell Scotts to clean up their genetically engineered bentgrass contamination in Oregon
Northwest Resistance Against Genetic Engineering held a protest on May 18 at a USDA public forum in Corvallis to take comments on the approval of genetically engineered creeping bentgrass.

The GE grass has been developed by Monsanto and Scotts to resist Monsanto's herbicide RoundUp, and would be used on golf courses around the country if approved. It has already contaminated the area around a test site near Madras, Oregon, including the Crooked River National Grassland and the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.

Join us for another protest, this time against Smith & Hawken, an upscale gardening store in Northwest Portland. Smith & Hawken was recently acquired by Scotts, and they need to know that we want them to clean up their mess

UC Students to Rise Up to Oppose UC-Bechtel Collaboration

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.05.2005 07:20

On May 11th, the University of California (UC) announced an unprecedented partnership with Bechtel Corporation, BWXT Technlogies, and Washing International Inc. to jointly bid for the management of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico. Not only does this arrangement poise the UC to continue to manage potential Armageddon during a dangerous new phase of US nuclear development, but it establishes an alarming new frontier in UC-corporate connections.

Students from across the UC system will converge at the UC Regents meeting at UC San Francisco Laurel Heights on Wednesday, May 25th to speak out in opposition of the bid. After a planned meeting at 9 a.m. outside of the Laurel Heights building, the students will command the floor during the Regents' public comment period at 10 a.m. At roughly 11:20, they will conduct a rally outside the conference building. They are inviting people to join them in opposing the nuclearization and corporatization of the UC, or if they are not able to attend, to make announcements explaining the UC-Bechtel proposed partnership and the UC bid for the labs in classes. Organizers say, "It’s time to get UC out of the nuclear weapons business."

The UC has managed LANL since its inception over 60 years ago. However, after repeated security and financial mismanagement scandals, the US Department of Energy opened the management contract of LANL for competitive bid in 2003. UC’s contract to manage LANL expires on September 30. The Department of Energy (DoE) is expected to select the winner of the bidding competition over the summer. Read more | More about Los Alamos

Urbana-Champaign, 20.05.2005 05:22

Pedro Rosselló, defeated New Progressive Party (NPP) candidate for Puerto Rican Governor in the November 2004 elections, has brought Puerto Rican Senate business nearly to a standstill in his unrelenting quest for the presidency of that legislative body. The Puerto Rican people rejected Rosselló as governor in the 2004 election, Rosselló was not elected to the Puerto Rican Senate and Rosselló does not have the support of his fellow Senators to be Senate President. However, in Puerto Rican politics, these are just minor inconveniences.
