The Democrats' &quot;Exit Plan&quot; from Iraq and the attendant liquidation of the antiwar movement

Portland, 26.08.2005 07:38

Bush's war in Iraq has run into trouble: the Iraqi people are supporting the resistance, too many US soldiers are dying and it is becoming increasingly difficult to recruit additional cannon fodder. Furthermore, antiwar sentiment is growing as it becomes obvious that, from the beginning, this was a war about oil, world domination and permanent U.S. military bases in the Middle East.

Bush's war needs help. The Democratic Party is coming to the rescue. Here is their plan to liquidate the antiwar movement with an endless supply of nonsense about a supposed "exit plan"

[ The Hayden Plan: Containing the Anti-War Movement ]

Amy Goodman Promotes ImperialismYesterday on Democracy Now, Amy Goodman interviewed Juan Cole of U of Michigan and his 10 part plan for extricating the US from Iraq. His plan: remove most US ground troops, use air power to support "the Iraqi military", keep units such as Special Forces (to do things like "rescue pilots who may get shot down"), and forces to guard pipelines, promote reconciliation between the different groups, and invite all nations to participate in the open free market. He opposes timetables, views with favor tactics such as the prohibition of all traffic back in January that "enabled the elections to take place". This is Iraqization (as per "Vietnamization"), pure and simple. Even with everything that's happened, i'm stunned at her brazen attempt to promote a "kinder,gentler" imperialism. read more >>

Michael Walker, Killer of Rudy Cardenas, to Go on Trial September 26

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.08.2005 04:08

On September 26, the trial of State Bureau of Narcotics Agent Michael Walker for the murder of Rudy Cardenas will begin. Walker is accused of manslaughter in the February 17, 2004 shooting of Cardenas, in the back, as he fled from the agent. Cardenas was unarmed. It was thought Cardenas was another man, David Gonzales, who was sought on a parole violation—Cardenas only “fit the description.” The activism of members of the Cardenas family led to an open Grand Jury hearing in the case, which resulted in the manslaughter indictment. The prosecution is confidant a jury will convict Walker, but the police tradition of “shoot first and ask questions later” is a strong one, and police are rarely punished. Indybay reporter Peter Maiden provides background to the upcoming trial, which will be closely watched by police brutality activists and the general public. Read Story

IWW join forces with SSP to repell Scottish parliament's protest retaliation

United Kingdom, 25.08.2005 15:07

The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) join forces with the Scottish Socialist Party to lobby against financial sanctions enforced by the Scottish Parliament versus initially four parliamentarians who protested in the chamber against the ban of the 6th of July demonstration against the G8 at Gleneagles.
According to the "Industrial Worker", the radical syndicalist labour union's newspaper, the loss of £30 000 in wages will not only punish the protesters, but will also unjustifiyably effect their employees.
Campaigners and fellow members of the IWW call for a protest on 6th of September at 9am outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh and/or to sign an online petition and/or write protest letters to the presiding officer of the Scottish Parliament.

Ecuador: Ölförderung lahmgelegt

Germany, 25.08.2005 14:37

Seit letzten Sonntag blockieren im ecuadorianischen Amazonasgebiet tausende Menschen die komplette Erdölförderung sowie sämtliche Transportwege, um gegen die völlig ungerechte Verteilung der Gewinne ud die Schäden für Menschen und Natur zu protestieren. Ecuador musste daher seine Erdölexporte bis auf weiteres einstellen. Es gab heftige Auseinandersetzungen mit Armee und Polizei, am Mittwoch ließ der Präsident für die beiden betroffenen Provinzen den Notstand ausrufen, womit die Rechte auf Meinungs- und Pressefreiheit ausgesetzt werden, Versammlungen verboten sind und die Befehlsgewalt beim Militär liegt (u.a.) Die letzte Nachricht war der Rücktritt des ecuadorianischen Verteidigungsministers heute Mittag, der als "oberster Militär" mitverantwortlich war für den Ausruf des Notstandes.

The True Price of Milk

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.08.2005 09:37

As the nation's largest dairy producer, California serves as the benchmark for industry standards and norms. Annually, the Golden State generates $4.6 billion in revenue from 1.5 million cows at 2,400 farm operations. According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, one out of every five dairy cows in the United States is raised in California. Despite exceptional economic and agriculture growth, California's dairy practices have a detrimental effect on animal welfare, environmental sustainability, public health, and occupational safety.

The air that we breath...

United Kingdom, 25.08.2005 09:07

The last few months, both Nottingham and Mansfield have been the scene of protests against incinerators. Local residents in Nottingham took to the streets back in May after they learned Waste Recycling Group Ltd [WRG] are planning to expand the existing incinerator. The latest is that the recycle company have now submitted their planning application. Also Mansfield has a new campaign group: Mansfield Against Incineration (MAIN). Recently, at a public meeting, attended by over 300 people, Mansfield MP Alan Meale gave his support to the group, saying he 'shared many of the worries'. Various public meetings have been held, after residents found out the proposal to build a mixed waste burning unit at the Crown Farm Industrial Estate, Forest Town, Mansfield. The campaign groups are supported by Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, The Green Party and CABS (Clean Air for Bakersfield and Sneinton).

Forest Service Wrongfully Logs Botanical Reserve

Portland, 25.08.2005 08:07

Cave Junction, OR - Parts of the Babyfoot Lake Botanical Area, a protected reserve in southwestern Oregon's Siskiyou National Forest, have been discovered logged. The violation occurred as part of the Fiddler Old-Growth Reserve logging sale, which the Forest Service closed to the public for months in an attempt to squelch the protests and controversy that surrounded the logging.

The Babyfoot Lake Botanical Area was established by the Forest Service in 1963 to protect Brewer spruce (Picea breweriana), a rare, ancient conifer tree that have existed in the area since before the last Ice Age. Brewer's spruce are among the rarest conifers in North America, and were the last to be discovered and described by western science on the continent.

"There is no excuse for this kind of abuse," said Rolf Skar, campaign director of the Cave Junction based Siskiyou Project. "The cause of this violation can only be either gross incompetence or callousness - and neither is acceptable. This sort of logging free-for-all shows why the government needs more public oversight and accountability, not less."

Nicole Fink Now In Solitary Confinement

San Diego, 24.08.2005 18:07

Nicole Fink refused to talk to the Grand Jury this morning and was subsequently locked up. Since she refused to be subjected to a TB test, she will be in solitary confinement for approximately one week.

While federal marshalls took her into custody, her lawyer chuckled with the federal prosecutors, as if to say, "you win, guys, I gave it my all. Hey, wanna get a bite to eat?" During the two-minute hearing, he requested home confinement or bail, but Judge Irma Gonzalez rejected after one of the prosecutors countered: "Your honor, home confinement is not appropriate. I mean, I don't even know if she has a job or what her living situation is." It was an obvious attempt to discredit Nicole. In formal logic, it is known as the fallacy, petitio principi.

Before remanding her into custody, Judge Gonzalez stated that Nicole has no First or Fifth Amendment rights under a Grand Jury.

The decisions against David and Danae by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals were referenced several times to justify locking Nicole up.

In related news, it looks like the Grand Jury probe will be extended six months until next June (2006), although this is not yet official.

Blame Vulture Capitalism, not God, for Pat Robertson

Portland, 24.08.2005 17:37

On Aug. 22, 2005, Rev. Pat Robertson, a Christian, knee-jerk supporter of the Bush-Cheney Gang and a lackey for Israel's Ariel Sharon, publicly insisted that the U.S. should assassinate Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez. The incendiary remarks were made by the founder of the so-called "Christian Broadcasting Network" on his program known as the "700 Club." What kind of Christian is it that suggests on a public television show before a nationwide audience that a leader of another sovereign country should be murdered? Hasn't Robertson ever heard of the Ten Commandments? I also believe that the-not-so-Reverend Robertson is giving God a bad name. read more >>

Police sweep person from O'Bryant Square

Portland, 24.08.2005 17:37

Got to O'Bryant Square and saw at least 2 uniformed police officers, an unmarked white crown victoria police car with government plates, a (c.o.p) city of Portland truck, and a plain clothes woman and man who seemed to be ridding along, and two green uniformed bikers. They appeared to have talked to the young man who was there with his bicycle, and then the young man left. I asked one of the officers what was going on after he yelled something I couldn't understand from across the street. He choose ignore me and the other officer and him talked and then crossed at the end of the street away from me.

A march, starting at Gilbert Park holding colorful banners, snaked through the north end of town to the offices of the Forest Service. The elements were brought forward into a large circle as press took pictures and video for the nightly news. I was surprised by the fun vibrant spirit which was created in front of the FS building and enjoyed dancing around in spiral dance. We were reminded that there are still some brave souls struggling to stop the destruction up at the Hobson logging sale who need our help. I think we made our message clear. photos >>
