Poletown decision overturned

Michigan, 07.08.2004 02:41

Protesters march against the planned destruction of the Poletown neighborhood in 1980. The new court ruling will bar such government seizures of land for private use.
DETROIT — Saying its landmark 1981 Poletown decision was a violation of the State Constitution and a contradiction of a century of previous case law, the Michigan Supreme Court on July 31 largely barred local governments from seizing land for private use.

The unanimous ruling, in Wayne County v. Hathcock, was authored by the court’s four most conservative justices. It prevents Wayne County from seizing 40 parcels of private land interspersed in a 1,300-acre tract the county wants to use to build the private $2 billion Pinnacle Aeropark. The project includes plans for hotels, factories, offices, and a golf course adjacent to Metropolitan Airport.

Midtown Trembles

NYC, 06.08.2004 15:49

After weeks of negotiations, the Grassroots Media Coalition, which includes the New York City Independent Media Center and Paper Tiger Television, was scheduled to sign a month-long lease for a media space with a prominent non-profit organization located in the heart of midtown. Minutes before a meeting to sign the lease, a representative of the non-profit suddenly announced the deal was off. The Executive Director cited new concerns about security.

Police have been in regular contact with many buildings in the city ahead of the Republican National Convention, especially those near Madison Square Garden and other protest locations. That plus their "surges" and recent warnings about terrorist threats seem to have created a climate of fear, misrust and confusion throughout midtown Manhattan.

Albany Mosque Arrests: A Terrorist Plot or Entrapment

Hudson Mohawk, 06.08.2004 13:19

Two members of an Albany Mosque were arrested by the FBI in an early morning raid. A criminal was recruited by the government (presumarly in exchange for lenient treatment in his own prosecution) to entice the two Muslim leaders to engage in a money laundering scheme for a fee. The FBI informant reportedly told the two individuals that the $50,000 was to be used purchase a missile to assasinate a Pakistani diplomat. The Government admits there was no terrorist plot. Muslims, civil liberty groups and the Greens are raising concerns as to why Muslim leaders were targeted in this sting operation. Both individuals are widely knowm in the community as supporters of peace. Several other Muslims in the Capital District have been wrongfully targeted, arrested, fired and deported by the US government since 9/11.
