San Francisco Bay Area, 21.08.2005 13:07

8:35 update Camp Casey is still there. David Solnit was teaching a workshop, ANSWER was handing out leaflets, and NION was there, as well. The police have not returned, but Ross Mirkarimi did come by. A candlelight vigil is planned for 9pm.

On Saturday, August 20th at 4:45pm, the reportedly police told the campers at Camp Casey SF, next to the War Memorial Building, to take down their tents as well as their signs that are on the fence near the building. The campers were given a 30 minute deadline. Police suggested that the protesters spend the chilly night in their cars, although this would not work for supporters who had taken public transit or were used wheelchairs. Read more

Back 2 the Wall says &quot;Reopen the Biscuit Fire case&quot;

Portland, 20.08.2005 09:37

On August 15, 2005 the Back 2 the Wall performers got on a bus named "Cool" to do two performances of "Light It, Fight It, Log It", a protest musical, in Sisters and Bend, Or. "Light It, Fight It, Log It" tells the story of the probable arson that started the Buscuit fire in contrast to the Forrest Service's, frankly, questionable story. Back 2 the Wall asked folks listening and watching to call the governor to "Re-open the case". Here is the audio: Click Here

Cambridge Support for Jerry Hicks

United Kingdom, 20.08.2005 01:07

There has been active support in Cambridge for the campaign to reinstate Jerry Hicks. Jerry, a worker at the Bristol Rolls Royce plant, was "probably dismissed on trade union grounds", the employment tribunal found, for supposedly organising unofficial action, influencing the decision of the disciplinary panel (both to support two sacked colleagues), and standing in the way of normal working practices [more details].

The Smoking Ban Protest

Madison, 19.08.2005 22:07

Tuesday evenging, I marched with some of my friends who work in downtown bars down to the city/county building to attend a protest that attracted more people than almost every anti-war protest I've been to since I moved here. I was suprised to see that, given that most of the protesters consisted of people worried about losing their jobs or being unable to pay their bills, the lack of any attention paid by Madison's supposed progessives.

Wheels Of Democracy Oiled As Ordinary People Feel The Friction Globally

Ireland, 19.08.2005 20:07

Welcome to the Ireland of the 21st century. A country where ordinary folks are locked up in prison, for deciding to stand up against a multinational corporation, hell bent on exploiting both people and finite resources for their own personal gain Welcome to the Ireland of the 21st century. A country where ordinary folks are locked up in prison for deciding to stand up against a multinational corporation hell bent on exploiting both people and finite resources for their own personal gain. The fact that Micheál Ó Seighin, Willie Corduff, Brendan Philbin, Vincent McGrath, and Philip McGrath are still in prison suggests very clearly that our justice system and our ‘leaders’ are much more interested in maintaining close friendships with multinational business criminals, than they are in ensuring that justice, equality and sustainability are central and practical values at the core of society. In Ireland like much of the western developed world, we’ve almost become so cynical and tired of our political ‘leaders’ that we hardly bat an eyelid about the gombeen politics of corruption, about the stealing of the wealth we all help create and of the resources we all share. But the courage and conviction of the Rossport five, their families and supporters suggest that people are not afraid to take back democracy and put it where it belongs, with the people. The Soundmigration Files The governments love affair with Big Oil seems folly considering the state of oil reserves around the world. Pretty much all research suggests that peak oil production will peak within our lifetime. So why the drive for more oil and gas…..its simple. These companies don’t give a shit that the planet is burning up any more than they give a shit about ordinary communities who might get in the way of their profits. That unfortunately is an inherent feature of capitalism. This is having drastic consequences for humanity as a whole. It is always the ordinary folks, the ones that corporations and states see as without a strong voice, the people without slick and massively funded lobby groups, it is always us, who suffer first. It is always and will continue to be communities who work and rely on the land for income who suffer most as a result of climate change. It so happens that this project involves Shell and Statoil, but you know that it could equally be Mobil, Exxon BP or any of the others. Our own Top Oil sees no problems in refuelling bombers at Shannon Airport . Big Business thinks values and ethics are a bit like the coast and people of Mayo, kinda quaint but not really relevant in their big picture. The reliance on oil and gas as energy sources has already caused changes in this planets climate. We are at the point were drastic changes in how we create energy, and how we consume energy is needed for the survival of future generations. Ireland has doubled its oil consumption in the three years between 1989 and 2001* . It wasn’t always that way. Before the Celtic tiger in the mid 90’s Ireland was well below the per capita EU average for oil use. But since then we as a country have become even more oil dependant than the US. So if our health system is in such disarray, pensions getting robbed by the state and we are building up borders to stop people entering the country just who the hell is profiting from all this? The use of renewable energy sources is deliberately being left on the shelf so that these companies can suck all the profits they can out of the earth. Sustainable living is something that is easily understood by those working the land. The intricate balance of nature and man is not something that can be restored easily when the scales have tipped to far, and that is exactly where we find ourselves right now. For to long the power of how the world is organised has been held by those who value profit more than they value communities and cultures. The effects are seen in every part of the globe. The right to determine how our societies function has been robbed from us, with elected representatives themselves losing power to world trade agreements lobbied for and put together by large corporations. Our ‘leaders’ have signed blanks cheques, selling out our democracy as well as our future generations. This has to be challenged now. We don’t have the luxury of cynicism, nor can we remain feeling disempowered in the face of Big Business and impotent and corrupt governments. Meaningful change towards justice equality and sustainable ways of living have only ever happen when people stood up to those that hold on to profit and power. More importantly it is us who can make these changes happen. We need to look at ways of being less reliant on oil, both as individuals and collectively. We need to become more aware of our consumption and the energy chain involved. But we also need to bring these arguments right back at the companies and the government itself. The actions of the Rossport five are similair to those in communities right across the globe. It is these self empowered actions, whether by the ‘landless’ in Mexico, or farmers in India that are the backbone of any society that professes to be a democracy. This is a struggle as diverse as the world population but with one single ‘no’. People right across the globe are seeing that their local struggles are united against a global economic system based upon exploitation and instutionalised inequalities. As we reach out and learn about and from each other, as we continually see that we are losing what freedoms and liberties that we have, we steadily empower ourselves with confidence. We can inspire each other with our passions and energy to feel that we can tackle the over whelming might of business criminality and corrupt governments with our creativity solidarity and courage.



Israel’s So-Called “Disengagement” from Gaza Is a Ruse

DC, 19.08.2005 18:07

August 18,2005 The American, Israeli and even Palestinian media have been raving this week about Israel’s “move toward peace” with their plan of “disengagement” from the Gaza Strip. Look a bit more closely, however, and you will see that disengagement is in fact a distraction, a magician’s trick, to keep the world looking at one hand while the magician makes the rabbit disappear from the other. In this case the magician’s rabbit is the West Bank and Jerusalem, the OTHER part of the Palestinian Occupied Territories, the part where “disengagement” is NOT taking place. In fact, the exact opposite is happening –



Fresno City to use Prison Labor

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.08.2005 17:07

On August 16, 2005, The County of Fresno entered into a contract with the City of Fresno to provide for the beautification of city-owned buildings and grounds. As part of this agreement, 50 County jail inmates will be used to pick up trash and litter, remove weeds and dead brush, care for medians, and provide landscape maintenance. No money will be exchanged between the City and the County and everyone asked to comment on this relationship believes this to be a win-win situation. "Everybody benefits" is the word around the halls of government. John Crockford, co-chair of the Fresno County Peace and Freedom Party, believes the absence of discussion of labor in situations like this is indicative of the contempt our elected representatives have for working people. "The County jail inmates who work to produce a cleaner Fresno deserve the respect and dignity due all workers. Indeed, they deserve the respect and dignity due all people, regardless of their position in society." Full report here.



Sacramento Activists to Converge Against Pesticide Spraying

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.08.2005 17:07

Sacramento county residents have been bombarded with aerial spraying of pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide for the past 5 nights wihout informed consent ot sufficient notice to protect themselves. Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito Vector Control Board has stated the chemicals used are harmless when in fact they have been shown to cause cancer and other mutations. Due to certain exemptions, the Board has not had to apply for permits, gain property access or even inform the public of the actions they are taking. The aerial spraying is designed to stop the spread of West Nile Virus, and contains Pyrethrins and Piperonyl Butoxide in the form of a product called Evergreen 60-6, and is sprayed each night between 8 pm and midnight. Residents were given no fair warning and have been told to stay inside, shut off air conditioners, bring in children's toys, pets, etc during the spray, but that it is "completely harmless." These chemicals have been found to cause cancer in laboratory animals and have increased the probability of leukemia in farm workers. Organizers are planning a rally on Friday to bring attention to the issue. More info here.

Champaign County Board Keeps Racial Disparity Study Money Intact After Citizens Mobilize in 11th Hour

Urbana-Champaign, 19.08.2005 14:37

Eleventh hour organizing Thursday by citizens persuaded the majority of Champaign county board members not to transfer funds allocated for a disparity study to a remodeling project at the Brookens Administrative Center that some say could ultimately involve hiring female and minority owned contractors. Instead, the Board voted to fund the remodeling project with other monies. The $54,145 appropriated for the disparity study to document county discrimination against minority and female contractors remains intact. However, the disparity study funds must be spent by the end of this year or they will be returned to the general fund.

We Hear Hope Coming: Father Jean Juste Falls Ill in Haitian Jail

Portland, 19.08.2005 08:37

Father Gerard Jean Juste, from Haiti's National Penitentiary, writes:

Brothers and sisters around the world, allow me to thank you for what you have done for me personally, and what you have done for the poor ones I serve and stand with, for all prisoners, especially the political prisoners of Haiti. I know that thousands of you are advocating on my behalf. People from Haiti, from the US, from Brazil, Canada, Germany, France, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Nicaragua and the Netherlands have sent letters and faxes to the US Embassy and the Haitian government trying to free me and to bring democracy and human rights back to Haiti.



Anti-Abortion activism in the Square

Portland, 19.08.2005 08:37

Around 3:30 i was buying a trimet pass in Pioneer Square when I noticed a bunch of people standing around with red tape over their mouthes with the word "life" written on them. Most had their eyes closed; one was listening to music, all were swaying back and forth. Tape-over-the-mouth is a commonly used tactic by activists when they feel their rights are being trampled on. I wanted to know what was going on, and, if it was a cause I liked, join in.

So I went up to the guy whose red tape said "Spokesperson." He very curtiously told me that they were having a silent prayer meeting asking god to end abortion.



Forest Service Ranger, Pam Bode, Lies on Stand

Portland, 19.08.2005 08:37

n an attempt to rationalize an unconstitutional closure of Fiddler and then Hobson to stop protesters from stalling logging operations through non-violent civil disobedience, Pam Bode lies on the stand. In a hearing on 8/12 concerning a court case challenging the closure, Pam stated that some protesters had thrown rocks during an action, that she, "could not tell the violent protesters from the peaceful ones", and that protests at Fiddler, "approached riot levels". Anyone, who was at Fiddler, knows this to be an act of blatant perjury.



So-Called “Disengagement” from Gaza Is a Ruse

Portland, 19.08.2005 08:37

I just wrote this op-ed to coincide with the so-called "disengagement" from the Gaza Strip by Israel. I am a Portlander who has been to Palestine several times, and am fed up with the media coverage of the issue in this country. I hope this article will give you a little more insight into this issue than CNN or the corporate news has been doing in their cheerleading for Israel this week.



My Learning Experience at OHSU

Portland, 19.08.2005 07:37

That morning, I had phoned OHSU president Peter Kohler's office (503-494-8252) to inquire about their animal research and to get their side of the issue. I spoke to someone who identified herself as Tiffany. She offered to mail me information but I elected to pick it up since I was going out anyway. She told me I should go to the front desk in Mackenzie Hall and the printed materials would be there for me.

When I arrived, the woman at the window did not know anything about any printed information. I returned to my car to get the number I had called earlier and when I returned to the building I started to notice things seemed strange. As I went up to the window where I had been before, the woman I had spoken to saw me and walked away. I was then approached by two men who told me I needed to leave the building. Confused, I asked why. They told me I looked suspicious. I asked what was suspicious about me and did not get an answer. I then headed outside of the building, leaving the same way I came.

I reached the sidewalk on Sam Jackson road, started walking to the right and noticed someone behind a bush, talking on a walkie talkie. I turned around, headed back down the sidewalk and the guy behind the bush joined up with the other individual who was following me. I was followed down the sidewalk and across the street. They were continuing to tell me to leave even though I was walking on the sidewalk away from them. Then a security officer came up from behind me, pushed me and said I was under arrest.



(no)Border Encuentro to Be Held in San Diego

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.08.2005 07:07

A (no)Border Encuentro is scheduled for August 27th and 28th in San Diego. As millions of people are forced to live underground, more than 3200 are dead, and tens of thousands more are incapacitated crossing the border... and on the other side, racist paramilitaries are openly organizing across the US and finding partners in politicians and corporate media outlets alike. A great deal of organizing around these issues is happening. One "small contribution to this struggle for liberation and dignity, (is) the (no)border encuentro in San Diego." Organizers hope that it will "truly be an encounter, with many people sharing space, dreams, ideas and strategies." They ask that people who plan to attend the (no)Border Encuentro RSVP so they know who and how many poeple are coming.

The weekend will include a Maquiladora/Border Tour, a benefit concert with the Bay Area's Entartete Kunst as well as Southern California hip hop and break-beat dj's, a Café Anarquista, a workshop about the history of the border, direct action training, an anti-minutemen training session, and more.

Marc Emery Arrest Leads to DEA Trap of Emery Seeds Customers

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.08.2005 06:37

In July, Marc Emery, Michelle Rainey, and Greg Williams (Marijuana Man) were arrested in Canada. When the British Columbia Marijuana Party was raided by the DEA on July 22nd, the BCMP said that it was a "dramatic example of the loss of Canadian sovereignty to the US drug war." The search warrants were authorized at the highest levels of the provincial government in concert with a cross-border US-Canada law enforcement pact authorized by the a US-authored Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters treaty (MLAT) between the US and Canada. The US issued extradition orders for Marc Emery. The DEA and other agencies are claiming that by selling seeds to pot-growing Americans, Emery is engaged in a criminal enterprise with the growers. Petition to the Canadian government against the extradition of Marc Emery.

The DEA and RCMP and perhaps other agencies appear to be coordinating a massive round-up of both Canadians and Americans in a considerable escalation of the drug war. A report on Cannabis Culture magazine's website says that when seeds were sent out in June, they took unusually long to get to people's places. Some 200-300 orders were being intercepted somehow, and held up. The article says that theDEA took photos of unopened envelopes that were in two mail box addresses (since they were not allowed to open mail). However, a number of people have received a form in the mail that asks them to send a Western Union or Money Gram, with a code word and attention to certain people. Anyone who did not put their address anywhere on the outside of the envelope will likely not receive this DEA mail. Read more, including photos of the letters.

The article recommends that people not respond to those messages, and avoid activities that could be seen as illegal. Prosecution would require that those people who get the scam letter from the DEA incriminate themselves by agreeing that they wish to receive seeds, and through acknowldging the letter, prove that they asked for and paid for seeds. They suggest that people not buy seeds at any outlets or online businesses, whether in Canada or the USA, as "The US government and DEA are waging war, and many hundreds of people can still be implicated." People who have received these letters are asked to inform Jodie at cannabisculture.com Marc Emery Direct Seeds is closed for good. No refunds will be given, as the company did not keep records.

Muni Social Strike Forum on August 18th

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.08.2005 02:37

The MUNI Social Strike is set to begin on Thursday, September 1st, just as MUNI's new $1.50 fare is set to go into effect. Passengers are being encouraged to not pay fares as they enter buses and trains, and drivers are being encouraged to not accept fares. MUNI management has been planning to raise money by increasing fares, laying off workers, and cutting service. Management is counting on the targets of this plan -- riders and drivers -- to remain divided, silent, and passive. Rather than being adversaries, transit workers and transit riders are finding that they have a lot in common, and they plan to work together during the Social Strike.

A MUNI Social Strike Forum will be held on Thursday, August 18th at 6pm at Coffee to the People, at 1206 Masonic Ave. (near Haight Street).

300 Attend OKC vigil in support of Cindy (report and commentary from a participant)

Oklahoma, 19.08.2005 02:37

The Vets Support Sheehan - Because Cindy Supports The Vets Just one of 1,500 gatherings mobilized by liberal groups opposed to the Iraq war. I attended a gathering on the steps of the Oklahoma State Capital - there were about 300 I would estimate. I was a little disappointed - but you know, this wasn't planed. I don't think Cindy has been in Crawford for two weeks yet - so not bad. Just one of 1,500 gatherings mobilized by liberal groups opposed to the Iraq war. I attended a gathering on the steps of the Oklahoma State Capital - there were about 300 I would estimate. I was a little disappointed - but you know, this wasn't planed. I don't think Cindy has been in Crawford for two weeks yet - so not bad. Earlier at the Casey Camp in Crawford, Some jerk stopped his truck at the end of the road, attached a pole and chain to the side of his truck and took out 500 of the over 800 stick crosses made representing those who died in Iraq, with their names on them. I don't think this guy should go to jail or pay a fine or nothing like that - just let me punch his face in - that's all, that is all I ask - I think that's fair. While it still bothers me, yesterday, it really bothered me. All day long I had been fighting off tears of anger. Well, I go to this vigil, and I just have to say something. So at the end I go to the mike and wait for those speaking to finish, when I finally get to the mike, someone had shut it off, and everyone is leaving, so I have to shout out my frustration. Needless to say, it was embarrassing and I felt ashamed. But why - why should I feel ashamed, I'm not the one who ran over those crosses, and while I don't expect others to be upset, but I would think that every Veteran in America would be outraged and also want to punch this guys face in. But, while only vets can understand this, I would have hoped to at least have an opportunity to express my frustration. Oh well - I do feel better today and it makes me appreciate Cindy even more, because I know she would understand. I've decided to get more involved with Veterans groups and distance myself some from non-veteran groups - because they can't help it they don't understand. Those of us who wore boots, we've got to stick together.

Over 1600 Vigils Nationwide Mark Second Week of Mother’s Campout in Texas

Madison, 18.08.2005 21:07

In early August, Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey died in Iraq last April, began camping out outside President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. Her goal is to speak with the President and ask him the questions she was unable to ask when her son was killed. On August 17th, she was joined by thousands across the United States in over 1600 local candlelight vigils, including one here in Burien, Washington.

DC, 18.08.2005 19:07

Susan and Tom Johnson were among the dozens attending the MoveOn.org-sponsored Cindy Sheehan solidarity vigil outside the White House who wore "Mom" and "Dad" name tags. They are parents, and two of their three children are of military age, but they're not in Iraq. The Johnsons say this is a way for them to identify with the parental grief and anger Cindy Sheehan is expressing through her activism.

Cities and Towns Around the Country Hold August 17th Vigils with Cindy Sheehan

San Diego, 18.08.2005 18:38

On August 17th over 1,620 vigils were held all over the US in solidarity with Cindy Sheehan, who is camping in Crawford, Texas as she waits for President Bush to agree to meet with her. Her son Casey was a soldier who was killed in Iraq last year. Her son Casey Sheehan was a soldier who was killed in Iraq last year. While TrueMajority, MoveOn.org, and Democracy For America helped to organize the vigils, corporate media coverage of the events has focused disportionately on the efforts of these organizations, rather than on the genuine outpouring of support from the tens of thousands of people who turned up all over North America to share in Cindy's anti-war message.

The list continues to grow as Indymedia reports have come back in from Binghamton, Houston, Richmond, New York City, Tulsa, and across Cascadia. Lots of sites also have photos of the vigils available: Photos from Camp Casey | Photos from San Francisco: Federal Building | 24th & Mission | Photos From Berkeley: Adeline and Ashby | Solano Ave | Acton Street | The French Hotel | Photos From Oakland | Photos From Sacramento | Photos from LA | Photos From All Over The US .

Local Camp Caseys have been opened all over the US, such as Camp Casey San Francisco. Military mothers are calling for the president to join them Friday to pray for the troops in Iraq.

Hundreds have joined Cindy Sheehan in Crawford, Texas, to demand that the president come out and talk with her. Sheehan will be moving her camp closer to Bush's ranch after she was offered the use of a piece of land by a supporter. The white crosses to honor dead soldiers that were set up at her current camp will not be moved when she relocates. They were vandalized Monday night, and people will stay at the camp to monitor them.

The mood at the First United Methodist Church of Germantown was somber on Wednesday evening, August 17, as people entered the church for a vigil showing solidarity with Cindy Sheehan, co-founder of Gold Star Families for Peace and mother of Casey, an American soldier who was killed in Iraq. Sheehan has been camping outside George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas waiting to get answers as to why her son and many others are really losing their lives in this war.
