Klamath River Tribes protest at Pacificorp today

Portland, 27.09.2005 01:37

Members of the Karuk Nation staged a protest today in front of the Headquarters of Pacific Power, to demand that the dams be removed and that the Klamath River be allowed to flow freely. There was good educational outreach, eloquent speakers, and impassioned pleas to passers-by and Pacificorp employees to take their message inside the walls to their employers and fellow employees about the seriousness of the situation on the Klamath. Not only are the Klamath tribes along the entire stretch of river being severely impacted, but the river ecosystem is suffering too, evidenced by the fish die-offs and the algae overgrowth in the river. There was a pile of this toxic algae in the center of the protesters, bringing the smell of the ocean to the area.

Wausau Peace Activist Receives $6,500 from City and Pro-war assailant.

Madison, 26.09.2005 23:07

For almost three years now a small but dedicated group of Peace Activists have been meeting every Friday in front of the Wausau Courthouse on Grand Avenue protesting the war in IRAQ. Members of the Peace Group have suffered being harassed by police official and attacked by some angry pro-war protesters. Mike Wallschleger (42), former NCO in USMC just had $3,000 paid to him by the city of Wausau for the harassment which recently resulted in being ticketed and fined for an “obscenity” charge, which was latter dropped. He also received $3,500 form an Angry Pro-War “nutcase” who assaulted him while Wallschleger was peacefully protesting. Portions of the law suit moneys went to the Madison INFOshop, and disabled vet group. It was never about the money, Wallschleger says. See articles links and letter below

Top Animal Activists in Portland

Portland, 26.09.2005 22:08

Two of the nation's most influential writers and speakers on cruelties of the animal farming industry and benefits of vegetarianism will be in Portland this week.

Howard Lyman, who dramatically changed his life from fourth-generation cattle farmer to animal advocate, will appear Tuesday, Sept. 27, for the first Portland viewing of his documentary, "The Mad Cowboy." The film, directed by Michael Tobias, will be shown at 7 PM in First Congregational Church, 1126 SW Park Ave.

Also, Erik Marcus will discuss his latest book, "Meat Market: Animals, Ethics, and Money," on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 7:30 PM in Powell's Books, 1005 W. Burnside St. The free event is co-sponsored by Northwest VEG, a nonprofit vegetarian education and outreach group, and Powell's. In "Meat Market," he explores slaughterhouse practices and the disregard for animal welfare in modern agribusiness and argues why and how people should work to dismantle the cruel system.

Sheehan Arrested

Portland, 26.09.2005 22:08

Several Sources are reporting that Cindy Sheehan was arrested moments ago after protesting with a group of several hundred in front of the Whitehouse. She allegedly sat down with around a dozen other protestors and was warned by authorities that she must move along or be arrested. She was arrested almost immediately after the warning was given.

Portland Bridge Vigil Re-Cap

Portland, 26.09.2005 22:08

The vigil on the bridges last night was awesome, with participants ranging from teens to families with little ones, to olders, and elders. Candles thickly lined all three of the downtown bridges. The Oregonian apparently put the total at 100 folks, organizers estimate pretty conservatively at 900-1000. [ read more ]

Photos of PDX s24 bridge vigils for peace: I had thought that three bridges was over-reaching, but I was wrong. All but the last photo are from the vigil on the south side of the Burnside Bridge. I'm told that there were many more participating in the vigil on the Hawthorne Bridge. However, I got to the Hawthorne bridge very late. Still I like the way the series ends with an edgy photo of one of the last to leave vigil participants to leave the Hawthorne Bridge. [ read more ]

Photos from S24 vigil, Morrison Bridge: Photos from the anti-war vigil on the evening of September 24, 2005, on 3 of portland's bridges. these are all from the Morrison Bridge. I estimate there were about 100-150 on that bridge. The Oregonion reported only 100 total on all 3 bridges, but there were at least that many on just the Morrison, and I heard there were a about 500 on the Burnside and several hundred on the Hawthorne. [ read more ]

Pix from Saturday night vigil on Hawthorne Bridge: Here's some pix of the vigil on the Hawthorne Bridge on Saturday night. Critics say: "You're protesting doesn't do any good." I say: "Well, at the very least, it reminds me that I'm not alone." [ read more ]

From the Bridges tonight: At least a thousand, maybe 2000 on the Burnside, Morrison and Hawthorne Bridges tonight. We lined the bridges with candles, flags, signs and our passion that this evil war end now. Passing motorists honking horns lent support - even a stretch limo. The best motor support came at the end while walking down off the Morrison Bridge when a PDX Police wagon honked and waved the peace sign. [ read more ]



Venezuelan trade union leaders discuss way forward for the revolution

Portland, 26.09.2005 22:08

More than 50 Venezuelan trade union leaders attended the First Trade Union and Political Education Workshop, organised by the UNT and the Bolivarian Workers' Force (FBT), with the collaboration of the Ministry of Labour in El Paraiso, Caracas from September 19 to 23. The main aim of the meeting was to "start a process of ideological and political rearming of the trade union movement".

The workshop passed a very interesting resolution which we reproduce here: We ratify the leading role of our president Hugo Chavez Frias in this democratic and participatory revolutionary process. We understand that faced with the failure of capitalism, which is the cause of all exploitation, exclusion, oppression, hunger, pollution and misery in the world, we must go to a new model of society based on equality and with a social economy. we believe that the means of production must be expropriated and collectivised, and we believe in the building of socialism of the 21st century as a government of the workers and the people.

Athens, 26.09.2005 22:07

Τον Ιούνιο, έκτο μήνα του έτους 2005 οι ζαπατίστας πήραν μια νέα πολιτική πρωτοβουλία έτσι όπως περιγράφεται στην Έκτη Διακήρυξη της Ζούγκλας Λακαντόνα που είχε σαν επιστέγασμα την "Άλλη Καμπάνια".

Έξι συναντήσεις έγιναν στα εξεγερμένα ζαπατίστικα εδάφη τον Αύγουστο και το Σεπτέμβρη. Τρεις πρώτες στα χωριά Σαν Ραφαέλ (5-7 Αυγούστου), Χαβιέρ Ερνάντες (12-14 Αυγούστου) και στην κοινότητα Ντολόρες Ιδάλγο (19-21 Αυγούστου) με τη συμμετοχή πολιτικών και κοινωνικών οργανώσεων της αριστεράς, ιθαγενικών ομάδων και οργανώσεων, συλλογικοτήτων, καλλιτεχνών και ΜΚΟ, αλλά και απλών ανθρώπων. Οι επόμενες τρεις πραγματοποιήθηκαν στις κοινότητες Χουάν Ντιέγο (26-28 Αυγούστου), Ντολόρες Ιδάλγο (2-4 Σεπτέμβρη) και Χαβιέρ Ερνάντες (9-11 Σεπτέμβρη).

Οι έξι αυτές συναντήσεις κατέληξαν στην Πρώτη Γενική Συνέλευση για την Άλλη Καμπάνια στην ζαπατίστικη κοινότητα Λα Γκαρούτσα της Τσιάπας στις 16-18 Σεπτέμβρη. Εκεί συζητήθηκαν έξι θέματα έτσι όπως αυτά τέθηκαν από τις προηγούμενες συναντήσεις και ο Subcomadante Marcos μιλώντας σαν εκπρόσωπος του EZLN τόνισε ότι η μορφή της Άλλης Καμπάνιας πρέπει να αποφασιστεί από αυτούς που την αναλαμβάνουν. "Δεν θέλουμε να συμβεί στην Άλλη Καμπάνια αυτό που συνέβη στα κόμματα. Εδώ αποφασίζουν όλοι." Πρότεινε ακόμα, η επόμενη φάση της Άλλης Καμπάνιας να ξεκινήσει με μια έξοδο σε ολόκληρο το Μεξικό. Το πρώτο ταξίδι θα ξεκινήσει την 1η του Γενάρη του 2006 και θα επιστρέψει στην Τσιάπας στις 25 του Ιούνη. Η δεύτερη έξοδος θα γίνει το Σεπτέμβρη του 2006 μέχρι το Μάρτη του 2007. Την αρχή θα την κάνει ο ίδιος σαν εκπρόσωπος του EZLN. Ακόμα, τα ανεξάρτητα εναλλακτικά μέσα που συμμετείχαν σ΄ αυτήν την ολομέλεια πρότειναν να δημιουργηθεί ένα έθνικό δίκτυο ανεξάρτητων μέσων.

Σ΄ αυτή τη Γενική Συνέλευση συμμετείχαν 91 κοινωνικές οργανώσεις, 36 πολιτικές οργανώσεις, 129 ομάδες, συλλογικότητες, ΜΚΟ, 26 ιθαγενικές οργανώσεις και 196 άτομα.

Tasered Man Sues Chicago Police

Chicago, 26.09.2005 16:40

Tasers Suck! From the newswire: "In a lawsuit to be filed today [September 21, 2005], a law firm known for battling police misconduct is alleging that officers with the Chicago Police Department beat and shocked a mentally retarded man but never charged him with any crime.

"The police attack on 54-year-old Alfredo Lee Florez occurred at the end of last month, according to a statement released by the Law Offices of Blake Horowitz. Officers reportedly shocked Florez three times with a Taser weapon and repeatedly struck him, ignoring a nearby crowd's admonition that the man could not comprehend what the officers were saying."

Bring The Salmon Home - Un-Dam the Klamath!

Portland, 26.09.2005 15:38

I went to the Klamath River Tribes film screening and presentation tonight... to understand a little about the way of life the Klamath River tribes are struggling to both restore and preserve....At issue is the 50 year dam relicensing application due in March of 2006, for the complex of dams along the rivers in the Klamath Basin, where there are currently 6 dams sited. Salmon are being blocked from 350 miles of spawning habitat as a result of these dams. After the 'bucket brigades' by Klamath basin farmers, over 100,000 fish died on the Klamath.

Pacificorp dams on the Klamath River provide less than 2 percent of Pacificorp's total operating power; A study by the California Energy Commission found that already-operational power plants could easily replace any energy lost from decommissioning the Klamath River dams. Water Quality is now one of the main issues that the Klamath Tribes are working on calling attention to... independent water testing was done by the tribes this year. It was discovered that in the summer with the heat and fertilizer runoff, there are huge algae blooms. When the air cools, the algae decomposes, lowering oxygen levels in the water behind the Copco and Iron Gate dams. one type of algae present is toxic to the liver, called microcystis aeruginosa was found in levels that exceeded 100 times the World Health Organization standards.

The sale of Pacificorp and the relicensing of the Klamath River dams are both still under consideration by the FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) and by the PUC (Public Utility Commission). Cascadians need to put pressure on these agencies, along with our legislators and governor. We need our legislature to take a more active role in the management of the Klamath basin. Fisheries and recreational and cultural values need to take as big a role in decision-making as agriculture. We have to speak out to preserve these rivers, and in doing so, preserving the way of life of indigenous peoples. To not do so is to condone genocide. We need to contact our legislators about this gross human rights violation and argue against the relicensure of these dams, and to argue for dam removal.

Monterey's Weaponized Dolphins

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.09.2005 11:38

It may be the oddest tale to emerge from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Power Structure activists who have studied the US navy's cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying 'toxic dart' guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet's smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes at the Defense Intelligence Institute of Monterey, but has refused to confirm that any are missing.

Dolphins have been trained in attack-and-kill missions since the Cold War. The US Pacific bottlenose dolphins have apparently been taught to shoot terrorists attacking military vessels. Their coastal compound was breached during the storm, sweeping them out to sea. But those who have studied the controversial use of dolphins in the US defence program claim it is vital they are caught quickly.

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY TAKE TO THE STREETS IN OPPOSITION TO OCCUPATION

San Diego, 26.09.2005 03:38

Hundreds of thousands around the US protest war on September 24th September 24th: Hundreds of thousands of people protested the US war in Iraq and the lack of funding of people's needs such as disaster preparedness today. The protests took place on the same day as Hurricane Rita hit the state of Texas, bringing rains and strong winds to homes, oil rigs, and businesses. Indymedia radio stations came together for the monthly Critical Mass Radio Network broadcast. Radio stations conducted interviews about the protests, the war, and the two recent hurricane/evacuation disasters. They switched back and forth, carrying feeds from such locations as Michigan, Portland, New York, and San Francisco.

A firsthand account of the September 24th demonstration downtown and in Balboa Par says, "There was quite a turnout of activists for today's demonstration against the war in Iraq and corporate hegemony. Compared to the massive protests in DC, it may be small, but it was one of the largest I've seen around here since the Second Anniversary protests on March 19th of this year." Read More here

Some 50,000 people rallied and marched in San Francisco. An Anti-Capitalist Convergence gathered at 16th and Mission and then marched along the sidewalks to Dolores Park, where it joined the main march. There was a rally at Dolores Park, which turned into a 12pm march and arrived at Jefferson Square Park for a 2pm rally. At the park, the windows of a corporate media van were smashed, and "Fuck the Corporate Media" was written on the van. (Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | Video: 1 | 2 | 3 )

Crowd sizes at protests around the country were larger than expected. 300,000 people surrounded the White House in Washington, DC. (Video) 50,000 people protested in Los Angeles. Twice as many people as were expected protested in Salinas, California. The anti-war movement has grown in the last two months as Cindy Sheehan has gotten national corporate media coverage of her attempt to talk with President Bush about why he went to war. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, polls have shown that for the first time since George Bush invaded Iraq in March of 2003, a majority of people in the United States now call for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from that country.

The Mother of All Anti-War Rallies

Portland, 26.09.2005 00:07

As I pulled my car into the parking lot of the "New Carrollton" metro station, just northeast of our nation's capital, around 9:30 AM, on Sept. 24, 2005, I knew it was going to be a great day! The place was already mobbed with Anti-War protesters carrying all kinds of flashy banners, signs and posters indicating their opposition to the Iraqi War. From New Carrollton, it is only a short hop to the "Smithsonian" metro station, which is right on the National Mall and very close to the Washington Monument. A further hike by foot takes you - to the staging area for the "Bring the Troops Home Now," rally: the Ellipse.

When I reached the Mall, which runs on a mostly east to west line from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial, I saw a sea of people emerging from every direction onto its still green lawns. I headed for the Washington Monument, where the sponsoring organization, the "United for Peace & Justice" organization, had set up a temporary village of tents "designed to connect grassroots activists with a wide array of organizations and campaigns."

Size Didn't Matter; It was the Message, and it was Big

100,000? (DC police, AP) 250,000? (my unscientific count) 300,000? (organizers) 500,000? (Truthout's William Pitt and CNN). Really, who cares how many marched and rallied in Washington on Saturday? The important thing is that huge numbers of people of all ages, races, and walks of life, from all over the country--more people than the right could hope to entire to any event, even if it paid them--converged on the White House to condemn the War on the people of Iraq, and to condemn administration whose domestic policies are destroying the country.

As a conservatively dressed middle-aged woman from Buffalo, NY, riding the Metro back to her hotel, said, explaining why she had trekked all the way down to the nation's capital with a friend to join the protest, "I just got tired of sitting around the house being angry all the time."

Hundreds of thousands around the US protest war on September 24th

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.09.2005 18:37

September 24th: Hundreds of thousands of people protested the US war in Iraq and the lack of funding of people's needs such as disaster preparedness today. The protests took place on the same day as Hurricane Rita hit the state of Texas, bringing rains and strong winds to homes, oil rigs, and businesses. Indymedia radio stations came together for the monthly Critical Mass Radio Network broadcast. Radio stations conducted interviews about the protests, the war, and the two recent hurricane/evacuation disasters. They switched back and forth, carrying feeds from such locations as Michigan, Portland, New York, and San Francisco.

Some 50,000 people rallied and marched in San Francisco. An Anti-Capitalist Convergence gathered at 16th and Mission and then marched along the sidewalks to Dolores Park, where it joined the main march. There was a rally at Dolores Park, which turned into a 12pm march and arrived at Jefferson Square Park for a 2pm rally. At the park, the windows of a corporate media van were smashed, and "Fuck the Corporate Media" was written on the van.

Crowd sizes at protests around the country were larger than expected. 300,000 people surrounded the White House in Washington, DC. (Video) 50,000 people protested in Los Angeles. Twice as many people as were expected protested in Salinas, California. The anti-war movement has grown in the last two months as Cindy Sheehan has gotten national corporate media coverage of her attempt to talk with President Bush about why he went to war. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, polls have shown that for the first time since George Bush invaded Iraq in March of 2003, a majority of people in the United States now call for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from that country.

Direct Action to Support Youth Who Find Alternatives to Military

San Francisco Bay Area, 25.09.2005 18:37

The People Power Can End the War Collective called for a September 23rd demonstration. Over 200 youth, people of color, military families, and veterans rallied at the Chevron Gas Station at Telegraph and Grave Aves. in Oakland, then marched to the Armed Forces Recruiting Center on Broadway. The marchers re-decorated the Recruitment Center to declare it “Shut Down By People Power” and painted a graveyard in the street. Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | Report

Organizers said, "This action supports people power campaigns that are building to stop the Iraq war and occupation, and policies of empire behind it. If the government won’t listen to the people, we will stop the war ourselves by organizing campaigns to remove the pillars of support on which the war depends; troops, corporate profiteers and corporate media. We're working to uproot the system behind the war, to replace racism and poverty with economic and racial justice!"

Seattle: Here are a few pictures I snapped with a digital camera today. The protest brought together a great group of people as expected. I saw an estimate of around six to seven thousand people on the Seattle Indymedia website. After leaving the protest and heading back to my home on the bus I ran into a young fellow asking me if I was at the rally. I told him that I had been there and told him about the people that were there. "Do you really think that everyone getting together like that is going to end the war?" [ read more ]

Portland Bridges:At least a thousand, maybe 2000 on the Burnside, Morrison and Hawthorne Bridges tonight. We lined the bridges with candles, flags, signs and our passion that this evil war end now. The best motor support came at the end while walking down off the Morrison Bridge when a PDX Police wagon honked and waved the peace sign. [ read more ]

Estacada: We attended a small but dedicated gathering for Peace in Estacada this afternoon. There were 70 to 80 people in attendance, which is pretty astonishing for a little town like Estacada. Several speeches were given and a reading of a poem written by Casey Sheehan's sister which was very moving. Lloyd Marbet also spoke. There was music and companionship and a parade through town to be followed by a candlelight vigil this evening. No riot suited police were observed![ read more ]

Eugene:A great day! I'm not any good at estimating crowds, but it was a large and spirited one. Several hundred at least. The largest demonstration I've seen in the two years I've been in Eugene. We marched around downtown, past the Saturday Market, and then had a rally near the courthouse with some heartfelt speeches. It looks like we're coming back together. [ read more ]
