Join in national call in days to oppose Medicaid cuts

Portland, 18.10.2005 13:08

Beginning today, the Senate finance committee is expected to discuss budget reconciliation and relief packages for Hurricane Katrina victims. According to various press reports, some committees already are considering deeper cuts behind the scenes, including the Senate Finance Committee. There have been reports that the Finance Committee is considering net cuts of as much as $12 to $17 billion in Medicaid and Medicare, even though the target in the budget resolution was $10 billion. Votes in the Finance Committee could come as early as Wednesday. Our senators, Smith in particular, are under intense pressure to support additional cuts at a level that would harm beneficiaries including increased cost sharing and decreases in coverage for vulnerable people. Your URGENT Action is Needed. Join us in a national call in day today and tomorrow. Call 1-800-828-0498. Urge Senators Smith and Wyden to reject any budget reconciliation that includes Medicaid cuts that harm beneficiaries including additional cost sharing.



Treesitters Sue Timber Company For Tresspass

Portland, 18.10.2005 13:08

Pacific Lumber Promises Proof of Ownership Will Be Presented To Judge Quentin Kopp On Tuesday.

Eureka, CA - Former treesitters have branched out in their lawsuit against Pacific Lumber (PL), adding an unusual twist to the case with new challenges to the controversial Northern California timber company. Dueling allegations of trespass will be brought before the court in a hearing on Tuesday, October 18, 2005 at 9:00 am at the Eureka courthouse. Hearing location is Courtroom 10.

The court will also consider whether to issue a protective order on controversial footage from hidden cameras mounted in the helmets of treesit "extractors" hired by PL to forcibly remove activists from the high branches of ancient redwoods marked for cut. Activist defendants have been denied access to the footage and allege invasion of privacy based on the presence of the hidden "head cams."



Bird Flu.. Is it Because Terrorism isn't Working Anymore?

Portland, 18.10.2005 10:37

Is the bird flu danger going to occur in all the cities that are protesting the war? Will it be used to keep all of us inside when we aren't working or consuming? They've already taken as many lives and liberties as they can for the war on "terror." Next the war on germs. War drums.. war drums.. 100 dead! Stir up the paranoia!

I work in a place where CNN is always on and I read the ticker from the corner of my eye. I happened to catch 4 ticker messages and snippets of nuse related to the prescription drug companies responding to the crisis. The whole while there are tons of PR ads from prescription drug companies. While them and the media are in bed together they might as well sell some ad space.



Why not a rep from the Homeless Community?

Portland, 18.10.2005 10:37

As Phil Sanford of the Portland Tribune regularly has done in his column, The Oregonian associate editor David Reinhard, noted for the conservative tenor of his views expressed there, takes jabs at the City Campaign Finance Fund for it's intent to make public funds available without sufficient control to would be candidates for city commissioner or auditor.

According to those guys, all you got to do is have I.D., and get 1000 of your supporters to contribute $5 each. It's slightly more complicated than that, but do-able. Refer to the following web address for details:  http://www.portlandonline.com/auditor/index.cfm?c=38751

Meeting the qualifying requirements entitles candidates to be "eligible to receive an initial primary election allocation of $150,000 for their campaign". You'd have to read all the info and finelines (and believe me, there's a lot of them) on the website or in the packet candidates can pick up, but according to Reinhard, you can spend it on a fancy schmancy campaign office and the trimmings if you want. So far, only 6 people have signed up to participate in the Campaign Finance Fund program. Time is wasting.



Report back from 10/15/05 Fouad Kaady demonstration in Sandy, Oregon

Portland, 18.10.2005 10:37

At Sandy, Oregon on this 15th day of October, at 2pm, in the parking lot bounded by the library, subway sandwich shop, and the police station, about 35 people gathered to raise the awareness of the public regarding the fate of 27 year old Fouad Kaady, brought to his death September 8th of this year by the guns of a Sandy policeman, mid-20's and a Clackamas County Sheriff, mid-40's.

Bright overcast skies with breaks of sun and temperature in the 60's had people introducing themselves to each other, consulting about how signs they were making should read, and choosing locations on either side of the island, created by swift moving multi-lane traffic of highway 26, east bound traffic on the south, and west bound traffic to the north, upon which central downtown Sandy sits.

People held up about 10 nice big signs with the text "Unlawful Death in sandy, oregon by the Police", lots of smaller ones, and a couple large size photos of Fouad, one poster size in a very egaging depiction of his natural youth and vigor.

At first, to considerable degree, people driving by seemed to register blank faces of incomprehension, not too much horn tooting in recognition. Maybe it was just that demonstrators hadn't yet polished their manner of relating to the public passing by. After about an hour, hour and a half, things started snappin' and many, many motorists attention was drawn to the text of handmade signs such as "Release toxicology reports...It's the law", "Don't shoot me, I'm dressed" and simply, "Don't shoot. Amen", juxtoposed against the large poster picture and the 10 big signs. [ read more ]

Kaady Grand Jury Day

Portland, 18.10.2005 10:37

We spent the morning standing outside of the Clackamas County Courthouse. We got to the courthouse at 10 o'clock and stood with pictures of Fouad as people milled around going about their daily business. Once in awhile someone would stop to ask what we were doing there, and we spent time explaining the circumstances of Fouad's death. Channel 6 news was also there and a reporter fron NPR came later. Just as the Kaady family began to arrive, Channel 8 news also joined the group. A man carrying a flag which read "Justice", who was also at the demonstration in Sandy on Saturday stood on the corner across from the court house. I was a little sorry that so few of us who were not of the Kaady family showed up. Fouad's sisters do wonderful jobs of speaking for the family so we faded into the background as they arrived and came on home. I am attaching one picture of the event. [ read more ]

Fouad Kaady's Killer back at work before the Grand Jury even hears testimony

Officer Bergin of the Sandy Police Department has been back to work for a week now, according to the Gresham Outlook. He has been doing "desk duty" doing paperwork and reviewing background checks for potential reserve officers. Therefore, it looks like they already thought they knew the outcome of a Grand Jury before they even met to decide whether an indictment is handed down. Of course, this was before they knew that Fouad Kaady was Zaki's cousin. How could an officer be checking background information for potential officers when he has been charged with a most serious crime? How do people in Sandy live under these people? WOW! It really amazes me. We found three more witnesses Saturday in Sandy, eyewitnesses who have not been called. [ read more ]

Anti-immigrant Conference Faced Protest, Blockade, Arrests

Chicago, 17.10.2005 17:07

Protest those racists! [permalink] Dozens, and then hundreds [ 1 | 2 | 3 ], of Chicago-area community members delayed, in dramatic fashion, a national anti-immigrant organization's meeting in Chicago's Arlington Heights suburb on the morning of October 15, 2005. Activists linked their bodies arm in arm to form a human chain at the gates of the school where a meeting of the Minuteman Project was slated to take place.

The protest, at the gates of the Christian Liberty Academy on Euclid Avenue, saw some 15 to 25 activists (at their height) form a human blockade three lines thick at the entrance to the conference. The number of protesters had significantly outnumbered Arlington Heights police, who called for additional backup from at least five other nearby suburbs.

The stakes increased dramatically around noon when some 400 anti-Minuteman-protesters from assorted communities in Chicago arrived via bus convoy. The barricade then dispersed to join the rally, with the intent to reconvene later that afternoon.

Soon after, a team of police officers physically isolated an activist who had stood on the front line of the barricade. Protesters surrounded the police and the attempted arrest and tried to pull the activist out of custody. At that point, more police arrived to enter the fray, leading to more activist arrests.

The day ended abruptly around 1:40 PM when a bus load of riot police arrived to disperse the crowd.

Those arrested could be counted among the most outspoken activists, those targeted as "leaders" and "agitators" of the morning's barricade. All the arrestees were later released that evening. Comment here.

10/9 Sacred Ground: Stories of Resistance and Rebellion

Richmond, 17.10.2005 16:08

The Richmond Defenders for Freedom, Justice, and Equality held their 3rd Annual Commemoration of Gabriel's Rebellion and Sacred Ground on October 8-9, 2005. Last year, the Defenders unveiled the only public memorial in Richmond to the slave organizer/insurrectionist Gabriel at 15th and Broad streets. The events are in part a commemoration of the 205th anniversary of the execution of Gabriel in Shockoe Bottom after his plan of a slave rebellion was discovered. Gabriel is celebrated for his intense desire for freedom, his broad and inclusive sense of justice, and his great skill in organizing hundreds to fight for liberation. He was 24 years old when executed by Virginia in 1800. The events this year focused on Sacred Ground and the campaign to stop the proposed stadium construction in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom. Shockoe Bottom was once an east coast epicenter for the slave trade. Rivaled only by New Orleans and Natchez, Miss., Shockoe Bottom played a central role in with buying and selling of Africans into slavery for generations. There is a proposal to build a baseball stadium and “Market Village” in this area. The Defenders and others are fighting to turn the same area into a public remembrance of the function Shockoe Bottom played in the slavery system.

There is a high likelihood that these numbers will increase as more and more villages, towns, and buildings are discovered to have been razed to the ground. Stories of several schools with young children being wiped out by the sheer power of the earthquake make all of us following the situation tremble at the unthinkable thought.

Million More Movement Rally Strikes Unity Theme

Portland, 17.10.2005 10:37

No wonder the ADL's mouthpiece, Abe Foxman, tried to discourage leaders of the African-American community from attending the "Million More Movement" rally, which was held on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2005, on the Nation's Mall. The event, from its inception, sounded a positive theme of unity. A theme like that tends to drives hypocrites like Foxman, right up the proverbial wall. The unity theme was also evident in the signs, posters and banners seen during the affair, on a very sunny and warm day.

As far as the eye could see, the historic Mall-a space which by tradition belongs to the people-was filled with participants, the vast majority of them black. They stretched from the Washington Monument to the base of the west side of Capitol Hill, where the main stage was established. (Capitol Hill, a/k/a "Traitors' Hill," is where members of the U.S. Congress, like U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D-MD), continue to vote to fund the unjust, Neocon-inspired Iraqi War to the tune of $7 billion a month). The support in the Black community for President George W. Bush is now at 2 percent, while his overall approval rating is at an all time low of 39 percent, and falling.

The Million More Movement (MMM) was a reprise of the highly successful "Million Man March" rally held ten years ago in this city by a coalition of African-American groups. Today's effort had an even broader base of organizational support. It called for economic and social justice for "the poor and disenfranchised" and for mobilizing individuals into a process to transform American society and to finally "eliminate poverty and injustice." Part of the program for the rally was set aside to hear the "Voices of Peace," regarding the immoral and illegal war in Iraq.



Vigil When 2,000 Deaths are Announced

Candlelight Vigil when the Oregonian announces 2000 Americans have died in Iraq At 7:00 pm on the day they announce 2000 American deaths, line the railings along Waterfront Park and the Esplanade between Hawthorne and Morrison Bridges.

Bring a candle, and join us in vigil to bear witness for all who have died in this war. No leaders, no chants, just candlelight across the river bearing witness. Westside will be at Waterfront Park, east side along the Esplanade.

There might be 25 of us, or 250, or 2500. Our number isn't the point. The horrendous numbers of deaths is the point, and our moral opposition to this war is why we will be there. Please spread the word and keep your eye on the Oregonian's count.

Victory Party Held to Celebrate &quot;Not Guilty&quot; Verdict for Juanita Young

San Francisco Bay Area, 17.10.2005 06:37

Juanita Young was found not guilty last month in Bronx Supreme Court by Judge P. Benitez after a four day trial that took place more than two years after the initial incident in question. Young is a well known and outspoken anti-police brutality activist who first came into the political spotlight after the police killing of her son, Malcolm Ferguson, in March 2000 in the Soundview section of the Bronx. Juanita has since been a member of the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality and of the Justice Committee of the National Congress for Puerto Rican Rights.

In June of 2003, Juanita Young and her family were illegally evicted, and she and her children were left homeless for three months. At the time of her arrest, NYPD cop Hernandez told her, "No rallies for you today." Young was also manhandled and brutalized in the course of her illegal eviction and arrest and continues to suffer from those injuries sustained on that day over two years ago. In September of 2005, Judge Benitez declared that Juanita Young was not trespassing when she was arrested in her own home on the morning of June 7, 2003, in the eviction that had been engineered by her landlord and carried out by the NYPD. Members of the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality had long held that the illegal eviction of Juanita Young was politically motivated one, and that it was directed at silencing dissent in the post-911 political climate. Juanita Young was represented by Geoffrey Stewart of the Stewart Law Offices. A victory dinner and legal fundraiser for Lynne Stewart and Geoff Stewart were held in New York on October 16th.

We have done all this on a tiny budget, with no advertising, no employees and complete autonomy from all political organisations. We use an open and transparent method to organise our work. Our editorial collective is made up entirely of volunteers, organised as equals. This has allowed us to remain truly independent and to provide space for all those voices marginalised by the mainstream. From Dublin to Rossport, Clonakilty to Donegal, we give people a voice and a way to be heard. However, the cupboard is now bare. Our bank account is empty and we need to pay a 400 euro hosting bill by the end of the month.

However, as our traffic grows, so do our hosting costs. Every time a page is downloaded from the site, it costs us money. We would like to expand the services offered and allow bigger pictures, more multimedia and so on. However, in order to provide these things freely to the public, we need help with raising money. Our bank account is empty and we are facing a bill of approximately 400 euro at the end of the month. Therefore we are launching a fundraising appeal to raise this money. We appeal to all users of the site to put their hands in their pockets and help us out.

Even a small donation will be a great help in paying the bills. If you are a member of an organisation which uses the site to distribute information, advertise events, or comment on current affairs, consider asking your organisation to make a donation. You could even organise a fundraiser in your area for Indymedia. We can help out by providing films, tutorials and materials. Holding an indymedia night is also a good way of putting yourself in touch with others in your area who are supporters of the site and trying to build a local indymedia collective in your area. We are also always looking for more volunteers to help with the running of the site. If you have a reasonable amount of online access and want to get involved, just sign up to the editorial list and join in the discussion.

Ontruimingsgolf Oktober 2005 Amsterdam

Netherlands, 16.10.2005 21:37

Op aanstaande dinsdag, 18 oktober 2005, zullen er weer verschillende kraakpanden in Amsterdam worden ontruimd. Daarbij zullen verschillende mensen zich waarschijnlijk verzetten.

Een dagcafe/voku op de Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal dat ook die dag zou worden ontruimd is afgelopen zaterdag al leeggehaald. Hierbij zijn verschillende arrestaties verricht, de mensen in het pand en lukraak wat mensen die op straat leuzen riepen of foto's maakten.

Tijdens de ontruimingen kun je ook via telefoon en/of sms verslag naar Indymedia.nl doen: 06 44 238 148

Zorg dat je je voor de ontruimingen op de hoogte hebt gesteld van je rechten als je wordt opgepakt. Ook onmisbaar: de naam van een betrouwbare advocaat waar je naar kunt vragen.

Op de website van arrestantengroep staat algemene informatie over je rechten na arrestatie en ook over de nieuwste trucs en strategieen van de politie om actievoerders de mond te snoeren.

Op de website is niet alleen informatie te vinden voor mensen die nog weinig afweten van wat er precies gebeurd als je wordt opgepakt, maar ook voor meer ervaren actievoerders. Het is belangrijk dat mensen er alert op zijn dat de politie onder andere de toegang tot je eigen advocaat regelmatig weigert, en wat je daar aan kan doen. Wil je weten naar welke advocaat er beschikbaar is, bel of mail dan even naar de arrestantengroep of bemachtig een flyer op de dag zelf.

Iedereen succes, en vergeet niet: opgepakt wordt je niet alleen als je van plan bent een actie te gaan doen. We hebben de laatste tijd vaak genoeg gezien dat je voor niks van de straat kan worden geplukt om soms op valse beschuldigingen een hele tijd vast te zitten. Zorg dat je op de hoogte en voorbereid bent!

Public Access Television Under Attack

Tennessee, 16.10.2005 17:38

Legislation in Washington Threatens to Undermine Public Access TV Three Bills now in the House and Senate could end public access TV in America. For three decades public access TV has provided thousands of communities around the nation with a place where ordinary people can make and air media that matters to them. It’s estimated that over 1.2 million people volunteer on a regular basis at public access TV stations. They make programming on every imaginable subject, from cultural issues to self-help programming for immigrants. From targeted programming for youth, for seniors, for women, for the disabled, to faith based programs and televised psychics. Today in America public access TV is one of the richest ‘marketplaces of ideas’ in the nation – but this under immediate threat from three Bills now pending in Washington.



The Incorporation of Savoy within the Mass Transit District

Urbana-Champaign, 16.10.2005 17:07

Various reasons are presented why Savoy should be incorporated within the Mass Transit District (MTD). Opponents to incorporation complain about the imposition of higher taxes to fund MTD services – as though the residents of Savoy will be shouldering an unfair burden of taxes for services that they don't need. If anything, exactly the opposite is true – residents of Savoy are already paying LESS than their fair share of local taxes.



Joe And His Technicolor Pedicab

Oklahoma, 16.10.2005 04:37

New environmentally-friendly Pedicab business launched in Jenks, Oklahoma New environmentally-friendly Pedicab business launched in Jenks, Oklahoma New Pedicab business in Jenks, Oklahoma SAT. 15 OCT 2005 0800 CDT Copyright Dan Chang, 2005 Tulsa, OK--Joe Henretty is a quiet, unassuming everyday working man with few words. But, he operates a business more common on the streets of Jakarta, and not usually visited by most Oklahomans. Joe is the owner/operator of Golzern Pedicabs. http://www.golzernpedicabs.com In case you have been in America too long, and you think hip is low-cut jeans, pedicabs are human-powered taxis. To those of us who are not used to pungent Asian grocery stores filled with live chickens, pedicabs look like a mad scientist's idea of a lovemobile. The front end looks like a bicycle. The back end is a love seat on bolted onto two wheels. On any given day, Joe will taxi customers anywhere in Jenks. Jenks is a small suburb of Tulsa, perched precariously close on to the Arkansas River. Normally cruising Jenks' newest attraction, Riverwalk Crossing, Joe will pedicab you to the Jenks' Riverside Airport, to Antique Row, and any nursing home you wish to visit. All within Jenks city limits. What's the charge? The service is free. Tips are much welcomed. It's hot. The legs turn to noodles after the shift. And, he's got a mortgage too. Asked why Jenks, Joe replies, "Tulsa is not very friendly to small businesses."

Notes from the Millions More Movement

DC, 16.10.2005 03:08

The mood was not as joyous or hopeful as 10 years ago, when men (only) couldn't wait to be on the Mall. This time, women and families were there, but the tone was much more somber. Alot has happened in 10 years. Mentioned in every speech and in T-shirts everywhere you looked today, the people expressed their anger at how people were treatment of the victims of the Katrina disaster.
