No to the extradition of Sinan Bozkurt

US Torture Exposed, The People Respond

lotus, 08.05.2004 06:56

In response to a report of prisoner torture and murder inside prisons across Iraq, which was leaked to the media recently, people are standing up across the globe to decry the US and UK's use of torture. The graphic images have been shown on media outlets across the country, but some are still claiming that they're being censored.

As the evidence of torture grows, many are calling for Donald Rumsfeld's resignation. In a senate hearing where Rumsfeld was questioned today, a group of concerned people stood up and chanted "Fire Rumsfeld" while holding a banner saying the same.

Independent contractors have been implicated in the toture as well, creating a growing discussion fo the private war going on in Iraq. A demonstration of around 100 people was held in front of one of the contractor's, Titan Corporation's, headquarters, as well as a press conference. More demonstrations are planned.

Amid all this, there is still very little discussion in the media about the fact that this type of behaviour is taught, expected, and awarded in the military; and that this kind of torture has been going on in Guantanamo Bay for years. As in Guantanamo, a recent Democracy Now show discussed how in Iraqi prisions "there was no process for determining who was innocent".

San Diego Based Titan Corporation Tortures Iraqis

sdimc, 07.05.2004 18:18

UPDATE:: 5/7/04 - PROTEST THIS SATURDAY at the corner of Imperial Ave. and Euclid at 1pm

UPDATE:: 5/6/2004 - Nearly 100 demonstrators take their message to Titan's doorstep


San Diego based Titan Corporation participates in the detention and torture of Iraqis, as reported in this article from the Manchester Guardian.

Graphic photographs showing the torture and sexual abuse of Iraqi prisoners in a US-run prison outside Baghdad emerged yesterday from a military inquiry which has left six soldiers facing a possible court martial and a general under investigation.

The scandal has also brought to light the growing and largely unregulated role of private contractors in the interrogation of detainees.

Timber Pimp Rey Chased Out of Ashland

oso, 07.05.2004 14:08

Following a private closed-door meeting with the Society of American Foresters at Southern Oregon University this morning, Undersecretary of Agriculture Mark Rey was chased out of Ashland by a boisterous crowd of protesters on hand to draw attention to the extreme environmental policies of the US Forest Service and the Bush administration.

As Rey was leaving the building, the protesters attempted to surround his vehicle and block his exit. They were violently pushed back by undercover security forces wielding clubs and mace. Many protesters were assaulted and shoved to the ground by the overly aggressive security force. One person was pepper-sprayed in the back of the head.

Forest Defenders Take Action At Society of American Foresters Meeting at SOU

Early this morning, students and community members set two tree-sits high in the branches of a tree near the Stevenson Union at Southern Oregon University. The action serves as a symbol of opposition to the rhetoric of old-growth logging put forth at the Society of American Foresters Annual Meeting underway on campus.

With a banner proclaiming "Save the Wild Siskiyou!" strung between the tree-tops, the action sends a strong message to the timber puppets arriving in Ashland this week.

Next week, the Bush Administration's key logging proponents - Mark Rey, U.S. Forest Service officials and the timber industry - will convene at the annual meeting of the Society of American Foresters in Ashland, Oregon, May 5-7. This is a tremendous opportunity to influence how the public will react to Bush's old-growth logging program and the Biscuit logging project-the latter being the largest proposed timber sale in the modern history of the national forest system.


Join us for a colorful rally in defense of wild forests!
FRIDAY MAY 7th, 8:30AM at the Stevenson Union, Southern Oregon University

Mark Rey comes to speak in Ashland Friday May 7.
Sorry Mark, but we've heard enough out of you.

Things to bring: pots and pans with large spoons (not for cooking, but for noise making), signs of your choice, any other spontaneous tricks, 50 of your closest friends and a good attitude.

Ashland Council &amp; Community Shut Down DeBoer, 21.04.2004 13:38

In the latest painfully dysfunctional Ashland City Council meeting Tuesday night, a stalemate was reached over the proposed dis-appointment of Planning Commissioner Colin Swales. The 3-3 tie means that the mayoral appointments can not proceed, and the Council will have to revisit the issue next meeting. This was the first such block of mayoral appointees for the Council in at least 25 years, and constitutes a tremendous victory for the community of Ashland.

King DeBoer Responds to the Masses

just another peasant, 20.04.2004 08:01

King Alan DeBoer responds to the masses who dare call into question his judgement. Many peasants have tried to speak up about the recent decision to pass up a strong critic of the aristocracy for re-appointment to the planning commision. Turns out maintaining the status quo is more important than rocking the boat. The King's reponse was sent to all via mass email. Appropriate measures for delivering the 'truth' to the masses. Turns out there is an opportunity for the peasants to speak their minds one more time. King DeBoer makes the appointments official tonight at 7:00 in the City Council chambers.

SOU to Host Timber Puppets Rey, Salwasser and Sessions

sapsucker, 11.04.2004 20:26

Mark Rey, former timber industry lobbyist and current Undersecratary of Agriculture in charge of the US Forest Service, Hal Salwasser, Dean of the College of Forestry at Oregon State University (OSU) and John Sessions, professor of Forest Economics at OSU will assemble for the Oregon Society of American Foresters Annual Meeting at Southern Oregon University in Ashland.

These architects of extreme forest policy and science are responsible for the "Biscuit Fire Recovery Project", the largest and most extreme salvage logging proposal in modern history on our public lands. Their vision for the future rests squarely on drastic increases in public lands logging, under the guise of the so-called "Healthy Forests Initiative."

Brede demonstratie tegen deportatiepolitiek

Netherlands, 11.04.2004 18:41

Een indrukwekkende groep mensen liep zatermiddag door Amsterdam in een demonstratie onder het motto "Stop de Uitzettingen, van harte pardon!". Veel vluchtelingen en gezinnen liepen mee in de stoet waaraan volgens getuigen 10 tot 15 duizend deelnamen.

Volgens een verslag had de demonstratie vooral het karakter van een stille tocht, met hier en daar een groep met fluitjes. Volgens anderen was de demonstratie erg kleurrijk. Het AFA-blok zorgde voor veel animatie met een radiowagen en een sambaband. Dit blok demonstreerde niet alleen tegen de voorgenomen massale uitzettingen van vluchtelingen, maar ook voor open grenzen en tegen tegen Fort Europa. Zie voor meer verslagen van de demonstratie de volgende bijdragen: 1 | 2 | 3 | deutsch.

Op de Dam werden vele toespraken gehouden [ serie 1, serie 2 | programma ]. De demonstratie was op initiatief van platform Keer het Tij, dat ook een ludieke actie organiseerde op 7 april in Den Haag. In andere landen zijn er protesten bij de Nederlandse ambassades.
