Tre Arrow's Extradition Hearing: Day One

Portland, 29.06.2005 07:21

Day one of Tre's extradition hearing was full of surprises. First, every supporter, journalist and lawyer who attended was subjected to unprecedented security measures, including two sets of metal detectors and X-rays of all bags and purses. Second, Tre's lawyer, Tim Russell, argued so convincingly against extradition that the government lawyer had to ask for an overnight adjournment so she could attempt to marshal some kind of counter-argument. read more >>

CAFTA Vote Delayed!! Resistance Gets an Extra Day to Shame Ron Wyden

Portland, 29.06.2005 07:21

Today (Tues. 6/28) the Senate Finance Committee decided NOT to vote on CAFTA because they don't have the votes. It seems that Bush and his thugs haven't found the thumb screws to turn on Big Sugar to get them to give in on this one. It is sooooo disempowering to know that this huge industry is holding back CAFTA...while they care nothing for AIDS patients, sweatshop workers or the thousands of US workers who will lose their jobs to outsourcing...but that's Politics right? Fact is, though, that if Ron Wyden would just vote against it, our lives would be a lot easier. read more >>

Jury finds Scott McCollister not liable for death of Kendra James, but the rest of us know he's GUILTY

Portland, 29.06.2005 07:21

In spite of an unsurprising acquittal by a mostly white jury today, Scott McCollister knows in his dark, toxic heart that he is GUILTY. He shot and killed an unarmed, 90 lb woman to death, on the streets of Portland, after stopping her car because a black person was driving. He lied to a grand jury, and then to this jury. And star-crazed idiots from the suburbs let him off the hook. The rest of us, however, do not. read more >>

Canadian Seafood Boycott &quot;Day of Action&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.06.2005 06:20

A demonstration was held in front of a Red Lobster in San Bruno June 25th in support of a nationwide campaign to end the annual Canadian seal hunt. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is encouraging Red Lobster to join with many other seafood restaurants and retailers in supporting their Boycott Canadian Seafood campaign until Canada permanently ends its seal slaughter. By the end of this year's slaughter, over 300,000 harp seals in Canada will have been killed. Red Lobster is being targeted because it is the number one seafood chain in the U.S and is a major importer of seafood from Canada. According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Red Lobster is one of the largest consumers of Canadian crabs, and its imports of seafood from Canada extend far beyond crabs. Activists contend that the connection between Canada's commercial seal hunt, Canada's commercial fishing industry, and Red Lobster as a major purchaser of seafood gives Red Lobster and its customers the power to help bring Canada's annual seal slaughter to an end.

Nike Pulls Major Threat Ad, Issues Apology

DC, 29.06.2005 06:03

Caroline Bermudez reports: On Thursday, we reported that Nike Skateboarding used a classic Minor Threat album cover for its "Major Threat" 2005 East Coast Tour posters without asking permission. Much had been heard from the justifiably angry Dischord Records camp, including former Minor Threat frontman and label co-founder Ian MacKaye, who expressed his outrage towards the sneaker conglomerate. Nike had remained oddly silent until yesterday, when it issued a formal apology to both Dischord and Minor Threat. Apology from Nike



Workers and Laborers Fight Against Unjust Treatment

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.06.2005 06:00

In the early morning hours of Wednesday June 8th, several groups including the Worker Run Legal Clinic for Domestic Workers and Day Laborers and the Coalition for Domestic Worker Rights, joined to support Dominga Lugo's demand that her former employer, Maria Giron of Giron's Housecleaning Services, immediately stop committing illegal and unjust acts against her employees. Dominga Lugo, together with dozens of supportive domestic workers and day laborers, held a press conference and passed out know-your-rights information to Giron's current employees at the business place in Menlo Park to inform the employees about their rights and the public about this abusive employer. La Raza Centro Legal is representing Giron's former employee in an action to recover unpaid wages and penalties totaling thousands of dollars. Dominga also demands that Giron immediately cease similar abuses against the present workers of the company. Photos, Video, & More Info

Today, myself, danae and david agranoff went into the grany jury room and refused to answer questions based on our first amendment rights to free association and right to privacy.

In the courtroom were the two prosecutors, our lawyers, Danae, myself and David, and about 10 FBI agents. Myself, Danae and our lawyers were asked to leave while the judge heard Jeremy Warren's motions.



U.S. Senate Passes Resolution in Support of Mandatory Limits on U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Madison, 28.06.2005 23:01

In passing a "Sense of the Senate" resolution on climate change last week, the U.S. Senate voted in favor of placing mandatory limits on the emission of global warming gases by a vote of 53 to 44. "Climate change is at least in part caused by human activity and must be addressed by a mandatory policy that reduces greenhouse gas emissions", reads the "Sense of the Senate Resolution". "The Congress finds that greenhouse gases accumulating in the atmosphere are causing average temperatures to rise at a rate outside the range of natural variability and are posing a substantial risk of rising sea levels, altered patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation, and increased frequency and severity of floods and drought", the resolution states.

Police Brutality and Harrassment at Rainbow Gathering in West Virginia

DC, 28.06.2005 13:02

Court to be held in "Nature Center" in National Forest for Rainbow Gatherers ticketed for "gathering without a permit" First Video from Cranberry Site | From wildflowerstew.org The news from the site is that there's a lot of harrassment from law enforcement. People are being pushed around and shoved to the ground, a woman (who turned out to be a case of mistaken identity) was tackled and had to have stitches to her leg, video cameras being taken and smashed. There is a court hearing tomorrow for people who were given tickets when they first started arriving last week. Roads were blockaded and tickets were given to people attempting to enter another site where the gathering had originally been located. It is hoped that the media and anyone else who can will be there to witness and show support at the Nature Center in Cranberry Glade in the Monongahela National Forest near Richwood, West Virginia.)



Day Six Kendra James Civil Trial

Portland, 28.06.2005 13:02

Day six, Monday, June 27, 2005 brought the last witness for the defense; although this one seemed to support the plaintiff's side. The witness, Terrol White, who was the driver of the car Kendra was shot in on May 5, 2003, appeared by videotape. White is in jail in Spokane and so couldn't come in to testify. He supported all the other witnesses who said that all three officers stood by the open car door on the driver's side and walked along with the car when it started to move. He, like everyone else couldn't understand why 3 officers couldn't pull Kendra from the car. He did not see any officers fall or falling, nor did he see any officers being dragged by the car. Prior to and during the time of the shooting of Kendra by Officer McCollister, White was cuffed in the backseat of the patrol car parked just less than a car length from Kendra's car. He said that when the car moved, the officers were able to move with it, and that the car was jerking as if it was a standard-shift car out of gear rather than an automatic shift.

The plaintiff attorneys (for Kendra James' Estate & family) had two rebuttal witnesses; Dr. Brady and Dr. Grimsbo. Dr. Grimsbo, forensic scientist for over 30 years, conducted a test yesterday afternoon at the scene of the shooting (Skidmore overpass in N. Portland) using the actual car. At the specific location of the initial traffic stop, Dr. Grimsbo put the car in drive with the brake released and the driver's door open. Without giving the car any gas, it travelled over 275 feet (its final resting stop on May 5, 2003) at its idle speed, which was calculated to be 3 miles per hour. Grimsbo did this test with Attorney Bottoms for the plaintiff because the defense witness, Gaylan Warren, claimed that according to Mult. County Sheriff's tests, the car could not have travelled to its final resting stop that day at its idle speed. Warren had claimed that the car would have had to accelerate to at least 8 miles per hour. Grimsbo's test was videotaped and it showed him applying the brakes as the car went past its final resting spot and so refutted Warren's claim big time.

Kurdish hunger striker in critical condition

United Kingdom, 28.06.2005 13:01

Zulkuf Murat Bora, more widely known as Bahoz, has been on hunger strike since 17th of May. He was forced to leave Turkish Kurdistan due to his struggle for the rights and liberty of the Kurdish people. He is now in hospital in a very critical condition. At the moment, Yusuf Temiz, another political asylum seeker, is being kept in detention in Greece. He is under threat of imminent deportation to Turkey, where he faces the death penalty.

The last 6 weeks has seen a wave of activities in solidarity with Bahoz and Temiz. On 5th June a large concert took place in Thessaloniki, while on 21st June 1000 people took to the streets in Thessaloniki. The EU Office for Information and Culture was occupied earlier that morning. Others, including various radio stations and Amnesty had their offices occupied. A symbolic hunger strike took place in Athens on 21st June. Various actions took place in Volos, Patras and Edinburgh.

A recent report by the UN Human Rights Committee on Greece, stated 'Ill-treatment of minorities and foreigners or even killings at the hands of authorities resulted in negligible punishment.'

Alternative Servers Attacked: &quot;Not a Private Question: A Question of Privacy&quot;

Since then, the authorities potentially had access to all the data on the disks. Autistici's provider did not inform them about this. Apparently, this is connected to the same investigation as the one that caused an international law enforcement operation in London last October: A few days before the European Social Forum, Indymedia servers in London were seized, prompting a wave of solidarity statements [report].

Dial 911 and cops wait 'til it's safe before responding

Portland, 28.06.2005 01:31

So last night....I caught a garage burglar in the act confronted him. He sucker punched me and when I called 911 to report the assault the dispatcher wasted time with useless instructions and questions. I told her that he was in the neighborhood, on foot, and that quickly dispatching could possibly result in a capture. She wanted me to wait in the house so the cops could come find me. Knowing that describing my non-traditional living arrangements is best done over coffee....I told her that I would be at the corner where I could direct the cops in the direction that the guy ran. She equivocated saying that she had to protect police safety. At that point I gave up and handed the phone over to my girlfriend.



Call Wyden today: CAFTA Vote Tuesday!

Portland, 28.06.2005 01:31

Last week about 100 Portlanders gathered to voice their disgust with Sen. Ron Wyden's pro-CAFTA vote in a "mock mark-up" vote earlier in June. (A mock mark-up is a non-binding vote that gives the Senate leadership a chance to see where Senators are at on a given issue.) Protesters want Wyden to change his vote and oppose CAFTA when it counts: on the Senate floor. The lives and livelihoods of millions of Central Americans and US-ers lie in the balance.

Call Ron today and tell him: "Change your vote: NO on CAFTA!" 503.326.7525 (Portland) or call toll free 1-866-340-9281 (for Wyden's DC office)



Clackamas County Commissioners declare war on the homeless: Amend legal code to prohibit people from sleeping or camping in their car

Portland, 28.06.2005 01:31

Clackamas County's 2005 Homeless Count indicates that nearly 7,500 people living in the County are homeless, including 2,500 children, a dramatic increase from all prior counts of the County's homeless. [I]n late May the Clackamas County Board of County Commissioners approved a code amendment to prohibit people from sleeping or camping in their car, trailer or other vehicle on a county roadway or highway in residential, commercial or industrial areas. With this amendment, the Sheriff's Office now has the option to cite people under the county code and issue a $15 citation, which will go into effect 90 days from the adoption date. Now, these 7,500 people are not just homeless, they are likely to be cited for violating Clackamas County code.

Artists Illuminate 9-11 Truth More than the Official Commission

Portland, 28.06.2005 00:25

The Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance launched an art contest asking artists to cast light on how 9-11 truth could lead us towards peace and justice. Entires examine issues that the 9-11 Commission has ignored- including- "Who benefited?" and "Who should be held accountable?"

Artists and musicians cast new light on the shadow of 9/11, the unconscious fears of society, the defining event of the century, the excuse for endless war, the theme of an art contest that asks how the truth of 9/11 could lead society towards peace and justice.

The artists, unlike the official Kean/Zelikow Commission, which found no one responsible for the unprecedented failure of the military to protect American civilians on 9/11, points at those who benefited from 9/11 and could be held accountable for the crime. The artists look beyond the "They hate us for our freedoms." explanation of 9/11 and examine more rational, logical, economic, and psychological motivations for the attack.
