Oregon's Death With Dignity Law Upheld by Supreme Court

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.01.2006 04:38

On January 17th, the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of choice at the end of life. In a 6 to 3 decision, the court stated that the Attorney General's attempt to intervene in affairs of the state's aid-in-dying law exceeded his authority. The issue in question was whether the Controlled Substances Act allows the Attorney General to prohibit doctors from prescribing regulated drugs for use in physician-assisted suicide, in spite of a state law that allows the procedure. Oregon's Death with Dignity Act allows for a person who is terminally ill, 6 months from death, and of sound mind to request life-ending medication from a doctor. AB 651, the California Compassionate Choices Act, moves into legislative hearings this month.

January 14 Schumacher Fur Protest Report

Portland, 19.01.2006 04:38

Thanks to all of you (25-30 people) who made it out to Schumachers last Saturday to protest the fur industry. Schumacher has now hired security guards stationed outside the front door. The protest is alive and well (unlike the animals) as more and more people stop to ask questions about the fur industry.


Several students came by this week to interview us for school reports/projects. In Defense of Animals has added an educational display board to the protest showing graphic photos from the Chinese fur trade which includes dog and cat fur. More than 85% of thw world's fur products come from China where no laws govern the fur trade's abuse of animals. Beating and skinning alive is not uncommon. Dog and cat fur exported to the US from China is often deliberately mislabeled as being from other species. Consumers who purchase it are unaware they are wearing the fur of dogs and cats on their collar. Although its just as bad if its a fox, some people can only relate to the horrors of the fur trade if its fur from an animal that looks like their beloved Fluffy.

Come join us to stop the fur industry by protesting at Schumacher Furs every Saturday from 12:30 until about 4:00 at SW 9th and Morrison. Stop by and stay for however long you can. Signs, leaflets and vegan snacks provided.

Whalers use Public Relations to twist the truth

United Kingdom, 19.01.2006 01:38

Japanese whalers have hired a New Zealand Public Relations firm to smear anti-whaling protestors. Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd are both campaigning seperately against the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. Images used in a media release by the Institute of Cetacean Research (ICR) "is deliberate, manipulative, misinformation designed to feed the idea that the two groups work together" said Jon Sumby. [Full Story]

Off the Mawson coast in the Australian Antarctic Territory, 2000 nautical miles south-west of Perth, Canadian Greenpeace anti-whaling activist, Texas Joe Constantine, was dragged overboard into the freezing Antarctic waters after the whaling harpoon was fired over his inflatable and the harpoon rope became entangled in the craft.

Paul Watson for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has said the Japanese whaling fleet is a criminal operation and Intends to Ram and Disable Pirate Whalers but has offered to withdraw from the current campaign against the Japanese whaling fleet if either the Australian or New Zealand Government agrees to take Japan to court over the whaling issue. In New Zealand Maritime workers have blackbaned the whaling fleet.

Tennessee, 19.01.2006 00:09

Former Civil Rights Leader Speaks to a Full House at Vanderbilt University Nashville, TN: Speaking to a full house at Vanderbilt University on a snowy evening in Nashville, James Lawson returned to the university which rejected him for his civil rights work in the early 1960's during the Nashville sit-ins. Lawson, who has not lived in Nashville since 1962, met his wife in Tennessee and had his first child while studying as a divinty student. In 1960, Vanderbilt Trustees expelled Lawson for his civil rights work.

Eugene Civil Resisters Confront Senator Ron Wyden at Eugene City Club in Dramatic Demonstration Against His Votes to Approve War Funding; Resisters Tell Him "You Are An Accomplice to Mass Murder" In Front of Media
--by Peter Chabarek

January 13, 2006, on the eve of the Martin Luther King holiday weekend---US Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) thought he would be giving a staid address on his tax reform proposal to business and professional people at a Eugene City Club address at the Downtown Athletic Club ballroom. He didn't know he would be faced with some determined anti-war resisters who had prepared for him a special "gift" dramatic demonstration on Friday the 13th that would force him to defend his indefensible voting record on the Iraq War in front of the public and the media.

Snitches, Security and Suspected ELFers

Portland, 18.01.2006 07:38

A discussion of basic movement security and the federal snitch program. With the recent round of arrests of suspected ELFers, it is a good time to remind ourselves of security issues. I am hoping to initiate a discussion on basic movement and covert ops security. I'm sure I can't think of everything, so add your comments if you think you have something useful to share.

Rule number one: Shut the fuck up! Never, ever, ever talk about an action after it has happened. What could be the point? To relive old times? Too risky. The USA PATRIOT Act has removed all "statute of limitations," labeled even our weakest actions "terrorism," and increased sentencing guidelines tenfold. Take your actions back to the earth with you. The FBI would be nowhere in their investigations if no one was talking.

Once in custody, shut the fuck up! Get a lawyer. (If your lawyer advises you that talking will get you a lighter sentence, get a new lawyer.) Don't admit to anything. REFUSE TO SPEAK ABOUT OTHERS. Anyone who watches TV knows (and for those of you who don't) THE POLICE LIE TO GET YOU TO TALK. How basic is that? You can't believe a word they say. They will break every law and civil right on the books to get information. They are motivated by arrests and convictions, not truth and justice, not saving the planet, not being your friend, or even being a respectable cop. They have no shame. They are NOT trying to help you. They DO NOT have the power to make deals, plea bargains or "talk to the judge or DA." They are out to screw you and/or all of your friends.

We cannot let the feds and a few snitches deter our "movement." Instead, we need to learn from our mistakes and get back to the important work of stopping the real eco-terrorists.

Remembering Dr. King: Confronting Hate

Boston, 18.01.2006 02:08

This past Saturday, January 14th over one hundred people-radicals, students and other activists-marched in the rain for three hours at the African Meeting House on Beacon Hill waiting to confront a local white supremacist group, the White Revolution, that was to protest the AMH and a celebration for Dr. King’s holiday. The neo-Nazis never made it to the Meeting House, however. The only actual citing of a Nazi was near the State House several blocks away, but by the time the anti-Nazi group made it to the top of the hill, the Nazis were being ushered into the police wagon and taken away. Then the call went out to the activist community that the group was to make another attempt on Monday the 16th to get to the African Meeting House. At least 50 people braved the bitter cold this time to “protect the city from assholes,” according to one protester. Still, the Nazis never showed up.

What now for Shockoe Bottom?

Richmond, 17.01.2006 22:39

It looks like the proposal for a baseball stadium in Shockoe Bottom is dead. And while we cannot directly claim a victory, this is certainly good news. So what will happen now? Mayor Wilder believes that with Global Development Partners gone the hounds of reinvigorated development may be yelping in packs at the city’s door. If so, we need to stay involved. Shockoe Bottom is no less endangered now than before and the Burial Ground is under an even more direct threat. This fight is far from over and we will need your continued support and involvement to win.



Was an Innocent man executed on May 20, 1992?

Virginia awaits the results of DNA testing in the 1981 rape and murder of Wanda Faye McCoy in Grundy. The findings which could change the course of the death penalty in Virginia are expected back later this week. If Roger Keith Coleman is found innocent and that is still a question that remains unanswered as I write, Virginia will have to face the reality that we have executed an innocent man.



Rappahannock Council for Domestic Violence Bi-lingual Services Program

Richmond, 17.01.2006 22:39

In mid-December 2005 the Rappahannock Council for Domestic Violence (RCDV) celebrated its development of a bi-lingual program to assist persons affected by domestic violence, with an emphasis on assisting and providing services for members of the Latina/o community in Fredericksburg, VA. With support from the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, “La Positiva” Union Radio, and members of Fredericksburg’s police force, RCDV held its first committee meeting for the bi-lingual program. Due to the growing Spanish-speaking population in the Rappahannock area, the necessity for a program such as this was clear. Sylvia Torres, Hispanic/Latino Victim Services Coordinator at RCDV, explained that prior to the development of this program, very few members of RCDV knew Spanish well enough to respond to calls from members of the Latina/o community.
