Anti-Choice Ads Appear in BART Trains and Stations

San Francisco Bay Area, 13.01.2006 20:38

Slick anti-choice advertisements recently appeared in BART trains and stations. The ads imply that San Franciscans and women in general are opposed to abortion, or at the very least have qualms about it, without discussing the fact that women should be able to choose for themselves if and when to have children. The ads, instead, ask, "Abortion: Have We Gone too Far?" BART has rejected ads from anti-war groups in the past, but apparently it does not object to the content in the anti-choice ads. Some activists are complaining to BART officials while others are taking matters into their own hands and defacing many of these advertisements.

Out-thinking them, not out-fighting them: heart analysis sheds decisive light (with art)

Boston, 13.01.2006 20:08

Visionaries, 'idealists', and others daring towards their desires must move beyond shared powerless feelings. We are here for a reason, we have created and are creating our crucial projects. Understandings of reality and its origin are the keys to open the illusively impossible doors of fear and perpetual, everyday war. This article, with art included, goes over important truths while escaping 'Us vs. Them' constructs while at the same time promoting spirited *resistance consciousness*!

1st Amendment Trashed in Immigrant Crackdown

San Diego, 13.01.2006 17:08

Costa Mesa Mayor Allan Mansoor believes that America is "a nation
of laws." That's why, he says, the city's police should be first in
the nation to directly help deport "illegal aliens." But conduct by
Monsoor at two recent Costa Mesa city council meetings–-revealed on
video logs from two separate sources–-raises questions about his
ability to correctly and impartially uphold the law, including basic
First Amendment rights.

Fall Creek Timber Sale: Logging in progress

Portland, 13.01.2006 14:08

Last Friday (Jan 6) some friends and I took a hike to Fall Creek, where we encountered a logging operation happening in the hills. This, I believe, is the sale that was bought by Silver Creek Timber Company on November 2nd, 2005 (note, Silver Creek is the same company that's been reaping the benefits of the Biscuit Fire). If this is correct, this sale is 4.22 million board feet, or about 500 logging trucks full of trees.

In terms of what we saw, there were two or three logging trucks (just pickups, as of last Friday, they're not yarding yet), and "fellers" in what seemed to be two locations up the hill. There was also one law enforcement officer, who allowed us to enter into Bedrock Campground across the river. We hiked up the rocks and got some video footage of the mountainside and watched some of the trees fall. This is definitely not roadside salvage -- they're cutting well up the hill, in areas with burned trees. This is why I draw the conclusion that this is the Silver Creek sale. If anyone has more information about what's going on in Fall Creek, or would be interested in investigating, I'd be good to have more information out there. Forests should not fall in silence; let's find out what's going on.

Welcome to Ghosttown. You have been receiving intermittent announcements from us concerning this project for over a year, and finally the time has arrived to bring it all out into the open. Ghosttown is about the nature of living within a city, and the varying ways in which we, as the inhabitants of those cities, effect one another's lives; both conscientiously and unconsciously.

My Lai whistle blower and War hero Hugh Thompson (62) died last week.

Madison, 13.01.2006 06:10

My Lai whistle blower and War hero Hugh Thompson died last week at age 62. Thompson was the Vietnam Helicopter pilot who risked his life and military carrier at the My Lai Massacre.

On that historic morning in 1968, Thompson set his helicopter down near the irrigation ditch full of bodies. He asked a sergeant if the soldiers could help the civilians, some of whom were still alive. The sergeant suggested putting them out of their misery. Shocked, Thompson turned to Lieutenant Calley who was giving the orders. Lt. Calley told him to mind his own business.

Thompson reluctantly got back in his helicopter and began to lift off. Just then one of Thompson crew yelled, "My God, they're firing into the ditch!" Thompson landed his chopper between the troops and the shelter where more civilians were running to hide, then jumped out and confronted the Lt. Calley again who was directing the chase and war crimes.

Portland Police Surveillance Video to be Released to Public by PDX Indy Video Collective

Portland, 12.01.2006 22:38

In partnership with a network of activists across the city, the pdx indy video collective has procured a stash of police surveillance footage which will be released to the public at the end of this month in a new video, edited by Cat, entitled, "Eye of the Storm." The backbone of this expose is a cache of secret video tapes shot by "Portland's finest" as they rampaged through the streets in defense of the Empire.

Aside from proving, once and for all, that the police riots of 2002 and 2003 were unjustifiable, this footage has other, very dark, implications. Because in the course of their surveillance, the officers' cameras show a scary pattern of intentionally zooming in on people's faces, blatantly gathering personal information about people who are committing no crimes but are merely expressing political dissent.

Given recent revelations about the corporate police state's willingness to spy on peaceful, law abiding citizens,(not to mention the fact that the US govt is openly willing to incarcerate political opponents without due process of law, and to torture those in their custody), this footage should make you shudder. Because if you've ever participated in a demonstration in Portland, you'll be startled to learn just how much information they have been gathering about you. Are you in their sights? Come to the show and see if you can spot yourself. (I did.) You will never look down the chasm of officer Jones' lens in the same way again.



CAMP Victorious!

Saint Louis, 12.01.2006 22:38

The Communities Arts and Media Project (CAMP) won a months-long struggle to operate a community center in their location at 3022 Cherokee when the St. Louis Board of Adjustment issued an occupancy permit at a hearing on December 14. Though there are still some issues to be resolved--such as the occupancy limit for the first floor--the CAMP community will open the first-floor community space in Spring 2006.

Public Defenders Should Go On Strike

Portland, 12.01.2006 21:38

The situation with underfunded public defenders, and plea bargains being thrown around more often than not, with poor people caught in the mix, denied the rights given them legally, to fair and proper representation, needs to stop. Now. This is no longer a situation where public defenders can stand around and keep pointing fingers at those funding them, usually the state. At a certain point, public defenders become accomplices in these crimes against the poor...

Why Unions Rock:They don't &quot;hurt the people.&quot; They are the people.

Philadelphia, 12.01.2006 19:39

People who fundamentally sympathize with management against workers like to wave every bad union in your face like it's O.J. Simpson's shrunken glove, but the reality is that unions work and people who aren't in them make less money than people who are. It is entirely possible that SEPTA workers and TWU employees have a better deal, in economic terms, than some of the people they transport safely across their cities day after day. They may even have a better deal than you and I. But those are their gains to protect, not ours to seize. And who can really blame them for standing their ground when the rich continue to get richer and other ordinary Americans continue to lose ground?

Fact Finding Mission: Day 5

Philadelphia, 12.01.2006 15:38

We left Pensacola for Ocean Springs, Mississippi early Wednesday morning, eager yet guarded for what lay ahead. On the ride over we interviewed bus driver Ron Clower, a Navy veteran whose employer was contracted by FEMA to bring Katrina victims to shelters north of the Gulf. The stories he told were mind-blowing. Ron emphasized Bayou La Batrea as an area still forgotten, with no signs of rebuilding – and no signs of the mainstream media. We will be visiting this area Thursday, with more from Ron in an upcoming podcast. Also: Cleaning up, a bustling casino with FEMA offices on the second floor and Day Laborer issues.

Leeds Fascist Mailbox Picketed

United Kingdom, 12.01.2006 14:08

Providers of postal addresses to Fascist organisations in Leeds Mail Boxes Etc (UK) Ltd (MBE), were picketed on Tuesday.

The picket encouraged many people to challenge the management of Leeds City MBE. Several people who were collecting mail also said they would be cancelling their contract with MBE, rather than share an address with Nazis. There was one short disruption when two thugs tried to disrupt the picket. Through the time more than 300 leaflets were distributed.

Recently MBE branches in both Belfast and Brighton have taken a welcome decision not to play host to fascists, but so far the Leeds branch have refused to reconsider their position, despite being shown documentation on the British Peoples Party and their fascist activities. The the 635 Group, who organised the picket, will be organising further protests.

More Colonial Land Theft

Portland, 12.01.2006 13:38

The Guarani/Kaiowa peoples were granted the right by the Brazilian supreme court and the Brazilian government in March 2005 to live on their own land. After many years of enduring a meager existence on a small nine hectare piece of land, and fighting to have their land returned to them, the Guarani were successful in obtaining President Lula's signature on the demarcation law.

However, with U.S. and other western governments, as well as western multi-national corporations seeking to bring democracy and "progress" to Brazil ... with oil, mining, forestry and agricultural corporations claiming the land for exploration and development, as well as ranchers and other settlers claiming parcels of land ...

In January 2006, over one hundred Brazilian federal police officers forcibly evicted the Guarani and Kaiowa tribes from their lands at Nanderu Marangatu and Mato Grosso do Sul. Four hundred Indigenous people were forcibly evicted while police helicopters kept circling low overhead.

In an outpouring of community support, the people of Portland donated over $100,000 in the last week in hundreds of contributions of all sizes, to ensure the land would be protected and the educational programs would continue.
