Lawsuit Forces PGE to Stop Charging Ratepayers Phony “Multnomah County Business Income Tax

Portland, 03.11.2005 07:40

In response to a class action lawsuit filed against Portland General Electric Co. (PGE) in February 2005, PGE has decided to remove a charge from all of its electric bills to customers in Multnomah County. That is the charge labeled "Multnomah County tax," which PGE claimed to represent the Multnomah County Business Income Tax (MCBIT) it was paying to Mult. County.

In fact, while PGE has charged ratepayers in Multnomah County over $7 million for this "tax" since 1997, PGE in fact has paid less over that entire period than a total of $4,000 to Multnomah County for the MCBIT tax, and its parent Enron has apparently paid nothing at all.

PGE says it is removing the charge as of October 14, 2005.

"If you are a PGE customer, take a look at your next bill. If you see `Multnomah County tax' at the end of it, give us a call," said Linda Williams, one of the attorneys who filed the class action suit against PGE for imposing the phony income tax charges. (503-293-0399)

Willful neglect by DFAT of Australian imprisoned in Argentina

Adelaide, 03.11.2005 05:11

On 4 February 2003 Australian man Stephen Sutton was arrested in a joint Australian Federal Police/Argentine police operation in Buenos Aires. After being held for two an a half years without charge, he was finally convicted of drug trafficking, and sentenced to 11 years in an Argentine prison. This conviction was despite ANY drugs being found on Stephen or in his hotel at the time of the raid. Moreover, when Stephen was 15 he had a rare type of scalp tumour removed and according to his family 'was never the same ... and seemed to stay in this age bracket'. This fact alone suggests it is more likely that, if indeed there is ANY connection between Stephen Sutton and the drug trade, that Stephen was exploited by unscrupulous others, tricked into being an unwitting drug mule in what has been described as a 'transnational organised crime syndicate'. Now Stephen Sutton is seriously ill in prison with tuberculosis, and being denied basic health care. His concerned family have been consistently fobbed off by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and even threatened with imprisonment themselves under the Privacy Act for discussing their own frustrations with the system. Stephen's older sister Ann Cluse, from Salisbury Downs discusses her experiences dealing with government bureaucracies that appear completely uninterested in offering basic protection to an Australian citizen abroad in dire trouble. Does being in prison mean you have lost all human rights? Are there are other Australians imprisoned overseas enduring similar neglect from Australian Consular agencies? Is this a systemic problem?

Guy Fawkes and Te Whiti

Aotearoa, 03.11.2005 00:08

Saturday November the 5th marks the 400th anniversary of the arrest of Guy Fawkes, popularly known as the only person to enter parliament with honest intentions. Fawkes’ failed attempt to blow up the English parliament led to a longstanding British festive tradition of fireworks, bonfires, anti-Catholicism and burning of Fawkes and the Pope in effigy which, in a more secular form, even managed to take root in far-off New Zealand. The same day marks the 124th anniversary of a more typical act of violence, the storming of a peaceful, but disobedient, community by state forces. On the 5th of November 1881 Native Minister John Bryce sent 1600 Armed Constabulary and volunteers, backed by artillery, to trash and loot the village of Parihaka. The community’s successful development and non-violent resistance to land confiscations was more than the state could stand.

November 11th Night of Revolutionary Solidarity for Rob los Ricos in Oakland

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.11.2005 22:07

CAPS (California Anarchist Prisoner Solidarity) is organizing a Night of Revolutionary Solidarity for Rob los Ricos. This benefit show will be held on November 11th in Oakland, at 7pm in the Hazmat warehouse at 444 Harrison St. Bands that are scheduled to play include: Myth of Progress (Oakland,Ca), All Systems Fail (SLC,Ut), Black Box (Santa Rosa, Ca), Sin Remedio (L.A., Ca), Paxane (Oakland, Ca), and The Last War (Sonoma, Ca).

Rob los Ricos (Rob Thaxton) is a Tejano Chicano anarchist man who was sentenced to over 7 years for throwing a rock at a police officer during the June 18, 1999 Reclaim the Streets celebration-turned-police-riot in Eugene, Oregon. November 11th through 13th will be national Raise a Ruckus for Rob los Ricos days, with events held in many cities to raise funds for Rob's upcoming release, which is scheduled for late June, 2006. In Oregon, parolees are rerpotedly released with nothing but the prison garb on their backs. Other cities in which events will be held include Detroit, Michigan; Eugene and Portland, Oregon; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

November 11th is the anniversary of the day on which four anarchists were hung in Chicago in 1887. These men are often referred to as the "Haymarket Martyrs." These anarchists had been part of a movement to make May 1st International Workers' Day. After their deaths, the US moved Labor Day to the first Monday in September and depoliticized the event. Rob los Ricos wants to reclaim this as an anarchist festival day.

November 5th Protest and Memorial Event to Honor Lennox Sweeney

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.11.2005 21:07

Anti-war and anti-police brutality activist Lennox Sweeney, aged 64, died on October 13th. He was a former Navy intelligence officer and a retired Stanford Linear Accelerator Center employee. A Community Memorial and Celebration of Life for Lennox Sweeney will be held at 2pm on Saturday, November 5th, 2005, at MACLA, 510 S. First St. (between William & Reed) in downtown San Jose. Organizers say, "Lennox was truly an individual and so his celebration will be a wonderful event." People are asked to bring photos, stories, and their full hearts. The memorial will include sharing, food, and poetry, followed by music from Annie & the Vets, Raging Grannies, and others- including rap and hip hop. His cousins will attend the event. Lennox's cremains will also be present.

Some of Lennox's friends will be attending one of Lennox's favorite Saturday activities- an anti-war picket at the corner of Winchester and Santa Clara at noon before the memorial.

Veterans and Associate Members of Veterans For Peace plan to don orange T-shirts and march in Lennox's name in the San Francisco Veterans Day Parade on Sunday, November 6th. The contingent aims to bring light to the humanitarian issue of the Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese civilians who are still dying from exposure to Agent Orange, and to demand justice for all Agent Orange Victims. VFP Chapter 69 will meet on 2nd between Folsom and Howard streets by 12:30 pm, and the parade will start marching at 1 pm at the intersection of Market and Second streets. The parade will proceed westward up Market street, take a slight right turn onto Grove Street past Civic Center Park, and turn right onto Polk Street in front of the reviewing stand facing City Hall. The parade ends at approximately 3pm at the far end of the reviewing stand at Polk and McAllister. After this solemn procession and educational effort, Veterans for Peace will go to join the Agent Orange Accountability demonstration, tabling outside the Green Festival. Non-veterans are invited to help with tabling.

The callout was issued by an ad hoc collection of individuals involved in peace, transport, climate change and anti-capitalist campaigns. The Bristol ride assembled from 5pm on College Green in central Bristol, on a lovely autumnal evening. A number of participants came in Halloween or other fancy dress, and there were at least 3 mobile sound systems (lots of people had cameras - anyone got any good pictures???). The ride was good natured, but very slow! Riders worked well to ensure motorists didn't drive into the mass, and motorists were generally well behaved. It proceeded from College Green around St Augustines Parade, where it was held right up by traffic jams, down south along Redcliffe Way & Redcliffe Hill, over Bedminster bridge, and along York Rd to Temple Meads. It went north along Temple Gate, temple Way and Bond Street, before proceeding up Stokes Croft. It then ended on City Road at about 7.30pm, where a Halloween lantern procession was beginning....This world is not ours to ruin.

AUDIO FILE: Oregon DEQ Proposes To Relax Water Quality Standards

Portland, 02.11.2005 08:08

A group of Oregon's conservation leaders held a Press Conference in front of the Department of Environmental Quality building in late October to protest proposed changes to water quality regulations. These proposed changes were funded by a grant from Northwest Pulp and Paper Association, who will profit by these regulations being relaxed.

Mark introduced the subject matter and why the Conference was being held in front of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality building. "Water is an incredibly valuable resource in this state, something that we all hold very dear. And the agency charged with protecting the quality of that water is this agency right here, the Oregon DEQ, the Department of Environmental Quality. In 2002, the NW Pulp and Paper Association entered into a contract with this agency, Oregon DEQ. The contract was expressly earmarked to send $120,000 to this agency for the purpose of funding a specific position dedicated to revising and weakening Oregon's water clarity standards, the turbidity standard."



War Protestors' Free Speech Rights Targeted by Portland Police

Portland, 02.11.2005 08:08

Counter recruiting vigils are held each Tuesday from 5:30 to 6:30 in front of the miltary recruiting office at 1317 NE Broadway. Each week, pages with the names of the most recently killed US troops are laid at the doorway of the recruiting office. This is to help the recruiters inside see the results of their blood work. We light candles and leave them on the sidewalk. Passersby have been giving increasing support to our efforts, with many honks, thumbs up, and smiles. Groups of us, including Portland Catholic Workers, Veterans for Peace Chapter 72, and Code Pink, have been doing this since July without incident.

Tonight was different.



Community Comes Out to Discuss the Drug Free Zone

Portland, 02.11.2005 08:08

Tonight, 11/01/05, community members, city officials, public defenders and others met to discuss the future of the Prostitution Free Zone (PFZ) and the Drug Free Zones (DFZ), specifically the Beech Area. The discussion was held at Emmanuel Temple (1032 North Sumner) and facillitated by Bishop Wells and Amalia Alarcon.

Bishop Wells is from the church, Amalia is the manager of NRC-ONI (Neighborhood Resource Center-Office of Neighborhood Involvement). I learned of the discussion through my neighborhood association, and was surprised at the turnout for the discussion, especially to see Mayor Potter and Police Chief Foxworth in attendence.

The evening was prefaced by Maria Rubio, the policy manager for public safety, she began the opening remarks. She talked abstractly about the DFZ and at some point said she felt that the DFZ was "a good tool to immediately remove people" from the DFZ. After she spoke, Mayor Potter had a few brief words, declaring that he was pro-community and that the discussion tonight wasnt just about the PFZ/DFZ (i dont think he continued to state what else it was about) and that he also had issues with the current DFZ.

Possibility of Abrupt Climate Change Needs Research and Attention

Charlottesville, 02.11.2005 05:37

author: The National Academies Global climate, like other complex systems, is subject to abrupt changes if stressed. Global warming could cause such an abrupt shift, which could lead to severe problems for humans and other life. http://www4.nas.edu/news.nsf/isbn/0309074347?OpenDocument Date: Dec. 11, 2001 Contacts: Bill Kearney, Media Relations Officer Andrea Durham, Media Relations Assistant (202) 334-2138; e-mail < news@nas.edu> Most climate-change research has focused on gradual changes, such as the processes by which emissions of greenhouse gases lead to warming of the planet. But new evidence shows that periods of gradual change in Earth's past were punctuated by episodes of abrupt change, including temperature changes of about 10 degrees Celsius, or 18 degrees Fahrenheit, in only a decade in some places. Severe floods and droughts also marked periods of abrupt change. A new report from the National Academies' National Research Council says greenhouse warming and other human alterations of the climate system may increase the possibility of large, abrupt, and unwelcome regional or global climatic events. Researchers do not know enough about such events to accurately predict them, so surprises are inevitable. If the planet's climate is being forced to change -- as is currently the case -- it increases the number of possible mechanisms that can trigger abrupt events, the report says. And the more rapid the forced change that is taking place, the more likely it is that abrupt events will occur on a time scale that has immediate human and ecological consequences. There is no need for undue alarm, however, about the possibility of sudden climate change, because societies have learned to adapt to these changes over the course of human history, said the committee that wrote the report. Nevertheless, the committee said research into the causes, patterns, and likelihood of abrupt climate change is the best way to reduce its impact. Overall, research should be aimed at improving modeling and statistical analysis of abrupt changes. An important focus of the research should be on mechanisms that lead to sudden climate changes during warm periods, with an eye to providing realistic estimates of the likelihood of extreme events. Poor countries may need more help preparing for abrupt climate change since they lack scientific and economic resources. The planet's past climate record also needs to be understood better, according to the report. Scientists have a variety of means to study what the climate was like thousands of years ago. For example, researchers look at tree rings to examine the frequency of droughts and analyze gas bubbles trapped in ice cores to measure past atmospheric conditions. With such techniques, scientists have discovered repeated instances of especially large and abrupt climate changes over the last 100,000 years during the slide into and climb out of the most recent ice age. For instance, the warming at the end of the last ice age triggered an abrupt cooling period, which finished with an especially abrupt warming about 12,000 years ago. Since then, less dramatic -- though still rapid -- climate changes have occurred, affecting precipitation, hurricanes, and the El Ni�o events that occasionally disrupt temperatures in the tropical Pacific. Examples of abrupt change in the past century include a rapid warming of the North Atlantic from 1920 to 1930 and the Dust Bowl drought of the 1930s. Simulating abrupt climate changes using computer models is particularly difficult because most climate models respond in a linear manner in which a doubling of the factor forcing change -- greenhouse gases, for instance -- doubles the response. However, abrupt climate changes show that a small forcing may cause a small change, or may force the climate system across a threshold and trigger huge change. A massive discharge of fresh water from lakes dammed by melting ice sheets, which suddenly changes climate conditions worldwide, is an example of threshold-crossing. Chaotic behavior in the climate also may push it across a threshold without any apparent external forcing. The collapse of some ancient civilizations has been associated with abrupt climate changes, especially severe droughts, but humans have shown great resilience as well. Fast changes make adaptation more difficult, so research should be pursued to identify strategies that reduce vulnerabilities and increase the adaptability of economic and ecological systems, the committee said. It noted that many proactive policies might provide benefits regardless of whether abrupt climate change occurs. Some steps that deserve careful scrutiny include reducing emissions to slow global warming, improving climate forecasting, slowing biodiversity loss, and improving water, land, and air quality. The report was sponsored by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, with additional support from the National Bureau of Economic Research Program on International Environmental Economics at Yale University. The National Research Council is the principal operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. It is a private, nonprofit institution that provides science and technology advice under a congressional charter. A committee roster follows.

In the most recent "Mini Ice Age" about 500 years ago they were forced to eat rotting maggot filled dead horses and roots before many thousands died of starvation. The "surprise" this article talks about is how suprised you will be how many people turn to canniblism. That is what we or most likely our children and grandchildren have to look forward to. But our government feels it needs more study. ********************************************************************** That's a fact! 03.May.2005 12:10 D. Burbeck link The mini ice age lasted less than ten years, but the growing season failed all over Europe and scientists found evidence of severe drought in North America. They believe now that these events are all closely tied to the Atlantic Conveyor which, if it shuts down, fails to circulate tropical warmth to the upper lattitudes.......and the growing season is sharply reduced. This idea of abrupt climate change needs no further study at all. What needs study is why people are not marching on Washington DC demanding immediate changes! This knowledge is why we now have a neo-con take over of the Federal Government changing things for the filthy rich........who are beginning to worry about the future finally.

a day of workshops on the prison system *** Sunday, May 15th 3pm - 8pm *** BEHIND BARS / BREAKING DOWN WALLS a day of workshops on the prison system facilitated by Peter Gelderloos and Patrick Lincoln of Harrisonburg a day of workshops on the prison system facilitated by Peter Gelderloos and Patrick Lincoln of Harrisonburg *** Sunday, May 15th 3pm - 8pm *** BEHIND BARS / BREAKING DOWN WALLS a day of workshops on the prison system facilitated by Peter Gelderloos and Patrick Lincoln of Harrisonburg 3:00 - 5:00 PM BEHIND BARS: The Expansion of the American Prison Sell With over two million Americans serving prison sentences, and millions more locked up awaiting trial, on parole, under house arrest, at a halfway house, or otherwise under the supervision of the Justice Department, the prison system is an important component of our society. Yet even as prisons receive almost no attention in the mainstream media, politicians from both parties are nearly unanimous in supporting the proliferation of prisons, along with the expansion of an increasingly militarized police force and a more draconian penal system. The prison system sells itself as a solution to crime, but it is a false cure for an exaggerated problem. 5:00 - 5:45 PM: DINNER BREAK--Food available from BtTV for a small donation.. 5:45 - 8:00 PM BREAKING DOWN WALLS: Anti-Prison Organizing and Movement Building The prison system is a critical component of the state. Prisons are used to protect capitalist property relations, provide involuntary labor, enforce racial hierarchies, instill obedience to state policies, and encourage patriarchal behaviors. How can we build effective resistance to the prison system, and connect this organizing to an anti-authoritarian movement against the state as a whole? Using role-plays, group discussions, and brief overviews of anti-prison critiques, we will try to answer these questions together. ABOUT THE WORKSHOP PRESENTERS Peter Gelderloos is a writer and community organizer in Harrisonburg, Virginia. He has been active with Harrisonburgs Rising Up Collective, as well as the local Food Not Bombs, Copwatch, and anti-oppression workshops. After serving a six month prison sentence for an illegal protest action, Peter has become involved in prisoner support and anti-prison organizing. Patrick Lincoln spent time organizing around global justice issues before studying in Nicaragua for a year, then came home to commit an act of symbolic protest against U.S. militarism. As a result he spent six months in federal prison. Since then hes learned to take his organizing more seriously than himself, and embrace the need for a militant, diverse movement that addresses the "War at Home" - in which the Prison System plays a critical role. Donations are accepted, but these workshops are free and open to everyone BETTER THAN TELEVISION 106 A3 Goodman Street in Belmont.

A Most Peaceful Class War?

Charlottesville, 02.11.2005 05:37

Civil Liberties and Money in Charlottesville Is it illegal to be poor? A young couple sit down on the mall to talk. A few minutes later a police officer arrives and sits immediately next to them, within a foot of the young man. They asked the officer what he's doing. The officer responds, Oh, that's the great thing about his mall, you can sit where you want. To which the young man responds. We were here first, you are invading our privacy. If you were having a private conversation and I came and sat next to you, you wouldn't appreciate it very much. Officer; Am I violating your civil liberties?" Youth; No, that's now what this is about, this is about being polite. This isn't about being legal or illegal. The officer insists on staying. The young couple gets up to leave. The officer goes and sits very close to a homeless man. This is but one of a number of incidents on the Charlottesville mall that occured last year. The word on the street is that the Downtown Business Association went to the police with a request to "clean up" the mall. I have interviewed a couple of police officers and Chief Longo. The term "clean up" came up a few times, but no one could identify any particular directive or meeting that initiated such a campaign. Chief Longo has indicated that the police hear concerns from the downtown business association about particular crimes, or suspected drug dealing, but the association has not made any generalized requests to "clean up" the mall. Longo also indicated that they sometimes get fearful complaints about youth or homeless people who look out of place, but that they do not respond without a clear reason. The accounts off police intimidation in downtown areas are too numerous to be discounted however. Some individual officers are less political in their answers, stating that they did recieve increased pressure from downtown merchants last year to "clean up" the mall. "It's about money," was the flat statement of one of the officers. (Though the officer also lamented in the same conversation the lack of places for local youth to hang out, or places for homeless youth to stay.) I pressed Longo on the issue of intimidation of youth or homeless people on the mall. He indicated his intention to see to it that the police department respected the rights of all citizens, whether they be permanent or transitory, or regardless of their appearance. But when pressed on the issue of specific accounts of intimidation, he could never quite bring himself to say anything like "that sounds inappropriate." One gets the sense that, even if individual officers stepped beyond the particular lines, they would not likely be stopped by their leadership. Longo also stated that he had not recieved complaints of police intimidation in downtown areas. In the process of trying to write this article, I have come to understand why the police department might not get many complaints. One can find seond hand stories too numerous to count of police harrassment, particularly of youth and homeless people. But the number of people willing to recount their stories in person is very small. One would presume that many people feel they have little to gain and something to lose by telling such stories. Was there a directive from the Downtown Business Association to "clean up the mall" by getting rid of homeless people and non-wealthy young people? No, but the evidence indicates a de-facto policy nonetheless. For many years, Charlottesville has been somewhat unique in not harrassing homeless people and youth away from public spaces. There are a lot of places in the United States where it is simply illegal to be poor in public. With the rapidly escalating prices of housing in Charlottesville, it appears we are headed in that direction without any particular conspiracy to achieve those ends.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the international Food Not Bombs movement, Charlottesville Food Not Bombs is presenting a FUNdraiser on Thursday July 14th at Better Than Television community center underneath the Jefferson Movie theatre on the downtown mall. The funds will go to support free weekly meals served every Sunday at 1pm at Tonsler Park in Charlottesville. Festivities begin at 7 with a vegetarian meal, followed by a documentary film The Gleaners at 8pm and a special scavenger hunt late at 10pm. The Gleaners, an acclaimed French non-fiction "wandering-road documentary" by Agnes Varda focuses on gleaners: those who scour already reaped fields for the odd potato or turnip. THe film follows those who insist on finding a use for that which society has cast off, whether out of of necessity or of activism. The L. A. weekly called it "a protest film that's part social critique, part travelogue, but always an unsentimental celebration of human resilience." Suggested donation for the whole FUNdraiser is $5 for more info contact alex at alexd@planet-save.com or Jen at 293.2383

Activists Shut Down Mining with Multiple Lockdowns!

Reclaiming Appalachia: A Mountain Take Over: Zeb Mountain Destruction Halted by Escalating Anti Mountain Top Mining Campaign in Tennessee Reclaiming Appalachia: A Mountain Take Over: Zeb Mountain Destruction Halted by Escalating Anti Mountain Top Mining Campaign in Tennessee Knoxville, TN - As dawn approached this morning, activists stood on an ancient Appalachian mountain in a dramatic protest against mountain top mining. This is the first time a mountain has been taken over in the struggle to protect the Appalachian Mountains from the devastating practices of mountain top mining. Dedicated citizens are blockading National Coal's strip mine in scenic Campbell County, Tennessee to halt the destruction of Zeb Mountain. Activists affiliated with MountainJusticeSummer.org and Katuah Earth First! are using creative non violent tactics to bring attention to the modern atrocity of mountain top mining. Reclaiming Appalachia: A Mountain Take Over: Zeb Mountain Destruction Halted by Escalating Anti Mountain Top Mining Campaign in Tennessee Knoxville, TN - As dawn approached this morning, activists stood on an ancient Appalachian mountain in a dramatic protest against mountain top mining. This is the first time a mountain has been taken over in the struggle to protect the Appalachian Mountains from the devastating practices of mountain top mining. Dedicated citizens are blockading National Coal's strip mine in scenic Campbell County, Tennessee to halt the destruction of Zeb Mountain. Activists affiliated with MountainJusticeSummer.org and Katuah Earth First! are using creative non violent tactics to bring attention to the modern atrocity of mountain top mining. In an unprecedentated non violent intervention, individuals are blockading the entrance to the mine by locking themselves to a car on the haul road and sitting in a tripod to prevent access to the mine. Other activists have locked themselves to drilling equipment. Citizens are using their bodies to create a giant �no blast� zone across the mountain. These drastic tactics are being used because strip mining companies are not allowed to use explosives when unauthorized people are nearby. �Coal companies bend and break laws in order to blow apart Tennessee's mountain headwaters. Since regulatory agencies refuse to protect our mountains, non violent citizen intervention has become necessary. We stand for the preservation of the mountains, water, forests, and communities of Appalachia� said Maria Johnson of Kingsport, TN. �These mountains are our homes, and they are being stolen and destroyed by companies like National Coal and this must be stopped. To put my body between the mountain and the companies' machines may be the only way to stop them� said Nable Wallin of Asheville, NC. Zeb Mountain is located above beautiful Elk Valley in Campbell County, just 40 miles north of Knoxville, TN. (Directions Below) Mountain top mining practices involve removing the tops and sides off mountains with explosives and heavy equipment to access thin seams of coal. �We are reclaiming Appalachia. We are calling on Governor Bredesen to do the same by enforcing Tennessee's water quality laws and ban mountain top mining� said Mere Burton, perched upon a tripod in the middle of the road on Zeb Mountain. (Directions: From I-75, North of Knoxville, take exit 141 to Hwy 63W. Follow 63W for 4.3 miles and turn right at the Pioneer Post Office on to 297E. Follow the road 5 miles down, passing a cabinet shop and a church on left. About 1/2 mile after that, turn left onto Lick Fork Rd the mine site is about an eighth of a mile down on right.)

The Virginia Film Festival is poised to enter its 18th year with a full docket when it presents its 2005 event, on the theme of IN/JUSTICE, from October 27-30. The Festival will call more than 60 compelling films to the screen and more than 100 expert witnesses to the stage to make the case for cinema’s ability to achieve justice when legal systems falter. This year’s festival will launch on October 27 with the U.S. premiere of Wallace Shawn’s The Fever, attended by actress Vanessa Redgrave and director Carlo Nero. Film Festival director Richard Herskowitz comments: “The Fever, about a middle-class woman whose ‘illness’ is her awareness of the oppression that supports her privileged lifestyle, is the perfect kickoff for our theme of IN/JUSTICE.” The Festival will close three nights later on October 30 with Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont. The film will be introduced by director Dan Ireland (The Whole Wide World), producer Lee Caplin and screenwriter Ruth Sacks. Caplin and Sacks have a long history of involvement with arts and law programs at the University of Virginia, the Film Festival’s host institution. In between these two U.S. premieres, the Festival will showcase new and classic films on the theme of injustice with the participation of many guest filmmakers, artists, legal experts, and political activists. In addition, IN/JUSTICE will present a wide array of musical performances, art exhibits and parties. The complete schedule for the 2005 Virginia Film Festival goes online and tickets go on sale on September 30 at www.vafilm.com. Beginning Monday, October 17th, tickets can be purchased in person at the Festival's main box office at the Culbreth Theater or by telephone at 1-800-UVA-FEST or 434-982-5277. MORE SPECIAL GUESTS Many exciting talents will be attending special screenings at this year’s Virginia Film Festival, including: � Author John Grisham, discussing film adaptations of his novels with Hollywood Reporter critic Duane Byrge (10/28, Culbreth) � Director Rodrigo Garcia, accompanied by actresses Sissy Spacek and Kathy Baker, presenting Locarno Festival Golden Leopard winner Nine Lives, which will be the Virginia Film Festival’s debut presentation at Charlottesville’s restored Paramount Theater (10/29, 7pm) � Director Harold Ramis, introducing Groundhog Day (10/29, 6:30pm, Newcomb) and his latest production, The Ice Harvest (10/29, 10pm, Paramount) � Danish photographer Jacob Holdt, whose photographs are seen at the end of Lars Von Trier’s Dogville and Manderlay, will present Manderlay (10/28, 10pm, Culbreth) and also, in a special pre-Festival kickoff, his monumental American Pictures multimedia show (10/16, 6:30pm, Newcomb Theater, free). THEME OF IN/JUSTICE Hosted by the University of Virginia, the Virginia Film Festival is designed as a four-day course on a cultural theme in which over 10,000 viewers enroll. This year’s theme is IN/JUSTICE, and films and presenters will explore how films both promote the rule of law and challenge its flawed practice. Classic selections cover the judicial landscape, from courtrooms (i.e., Inherit the Wind, To Kill a Mockingbird, Anatomy of a Murder) to court martials (Paths of Glory), from the frontier (The Ox Bow Incident) into the streets (Dirty Harry). This year’s festival includes an unusually large number of independent documentaries (including The Untold Story of Emmet Till, Searching for Angela Shelton, Same Sex America, Winter Soldier, Sisters in Law, and Chagas), investigating social injustices that are barely addressed by the mainstream media. “Community participation in this year’s Festival is extraordinary,” said Herskowitz. “Many regional advocacy groups, including the Legal Aid Justice Center, the Restorative Justice Community, Witness to Innocence and the Mental Health Association and others have been involved in organizing speakers and discussions around these powerful documentaries.” According to Herskowitz, “Many documentary filmmakers believe they are themselves experiencing a growing injustice—copyright clearance demands that are slowly strangling their free expression.” A forum titled Fair Use and Free Speech: Who Owns Our Story? on Saturday, October 29 in the Small Special Collections Library will investigate the problem and reveal a solution created by filmmakers themselves. The forum will be hosted by Pat Aufderheide and Peter Jaszi of the Center for Social Media and the Project on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest at American University. PREMIERE SCREENINGS AND NEW FESTIVAL AWARDS The Festival’s typically strong selection of regional premieres (including Manderlay, The Ice Harvest, Bee Season, The Matador, Green Street Hooligans, Sophie Scholl and Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic), will be supplemented this year with a brand new Virginia Film Festival Jury and Audience Award competition among six of the best undistributed films of the year. The six contenders will be Stay Until Tomorrow (Laura Colella), Mutual Appreciation (Andrew Bujalski), The Definition of Insanity (Robert Margolis), Chain (Jem Cohen), Deepwater (David Marfield, based on a novel by Charlottesville-based author Matthew Jones), and Swimmers (Doug Sadler). “These films have been showered with awards at film festivals over the past year, but they have felt the injustice of a very harsh marketplace,” notes Herskowitz. “Our festival awards are designed to give these films additional recognition and another shot at distribution.” Jury members Ira Deutchman (Emerging Pictures), Jon Douglas (Regal Entertainment Group), Eric D’Arbeloff (Roadside Attractions), and Paula Silver (film marketing consultant) will award a cash prize of $5,000 and a screening opportunity in New York’s Regal Battery Park. They will also participate in a panel discussion on Sunday afternoon addressing distribution opportunities for indie filmmakers (The Jury’s In, 10/30, 1:15pm, Regal Downtown Mall). MUSICAL AND ART EVENTS The sounds of music will ring out at the Festival this year in four special events. Jon Langford of the seminal punk rock band, The Mekons, and his more recent alt-country iteration, The Waco Brothers, will present The Executioner’s Last Songs, featuring Sally Timms (10/28, 8:30pm, Satellite Ballroom). The multi-media performance will feature murder ballads set against an arresting backdrop of Langford’s own acclaimed artwork. On Saturday afternoon, the Film Festival presents its first collaboration with the new Charlottesville Pavilion. Langford and Timms’ band Sky and Pilot will headline a free concert on the outdoor stage titled MUSIC FOR JUSTICE, joined by acclaimed blues musician Corey Harris (10/29, 5pm). Silent film legend Harold Lloyd will once again be serenaded as Donald Sosin and Joanna Seaton provide live musical accompaniment to his crime-fighting comedy The Kid Brother (10/29, 1pm, Culbreth). Finally, South African singer and ATO recording artist Vusi Mahlasela will sing the Festival to a close on Sunday at 7pm, following a screening of Amandla!, the inspirational film about South African protest music (10/30, 7pm, Regal Downtown Mall). This year’s related art exhibits include: � The Fringe Festival (10/24-29, The Satellite Ballroom), featuring In/Justice-themed art and interactive multimedia installations created by U.Va. Art students � Mi Cuerpo, Mi Pais: Cuban Art Today (10/26-12/23, U.Va. Art Museum), an exciting exhibition showcasing a wide range of work by contemporary Cuban artists � 38 of 50/Capitol Embroidery: The Performance Sculpture of Randall Sinner (10/28- 30, The Bridge at 214 E. Main St.), showcasing sculptural works and images documenting Sinner's four years visiting and working in the 38 states which mandate the death penalty. EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS This year’s Festival will bring back, for the second year, the highly successful Adrenaline Film Project, led by Jeff Wadlow and Beau Bauman, the director and producer of Cry_Wolf. The highly caffeinated three-day filmmaking blitz by thirty local filmmakers will culminate in a Sunday afternoon screening at U.Va.’s Culbreth Theatre (10/30, 4pm). The annual Darden Producers Forum will welcome producers and U.Va. alumni Julie Lynn and Kelly Thomas for a behind-the-scenes look at the production of Nine Lives (10/27, 1:30pm, Darden, free). The Virginia Film Festival is hosted by the University of Virginia.
