München: Krieg ist Frieden ist Zensur ist Folter...

Germany, 10.02.2006 13:40

Wie jedes Jahr treffen sich in München im Hotel Bayerischer Hof PolitikerInnen, Waffenschmiede und Kriegs-Lobbyisten, um in ungezwungener Atmosphäre über Terror und Leid zu parlieren und die eine oder andere Planung vorzunehmen. Dagegen regt sich Protest. Das Kreisverwaltungsreferat erlässt ungesetzliche Auflagen, die Polizei geht mit Härte vor. Die bürgerlichen Medien zensieren sich mal wieder selbst.

Egg Industry Battery Cages Exposed by Activists

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.02.2006 10:13

Ninety-five percent of eggs are produced by hens in battery cages which are packed into warehouses. A significant share these eggs come from California's Central Valley. This practice is being targeted in a number of ways. East Bay Animal Advocates released a video documenting the squalid condition of egg-laying hens and is encouraging people to see for themselves where their eggs come from. The Humane Society filed a lawsuit targeting the tax-breaks that these egg farms receive. Activists even chalked up a victory in convincing the Trader Joe's grocery chain to no longer carry such eggs as of Feb. 1st.

Huge Natural Gas Pipeline Proposal in Oregon

Portland, 10.02.2006 05:40

Huge Natural Gas Pipeline Proposal in Oregon author: Muddy Coquille A 250-mile natural gas pipeline has been proposed to connect the LNG (liquefied natural gas) proposal in Coos Bay to the Williams pipeline in Roseburg, and then further to the pipeline near Malin, OR (near Klamath Falls). The proposal to import LNG and pipe the gas inland will undoubtedly have major economic, public safety, and environmental impacts while deepening the region's addiction to foreign fossil fuels.

The pipeline is an essential piece of the Coos Bay LNG proposal, and it appears that extensive negotiations have been going on for some time regarding this proposal. Peter DeFazio has stated his support for the LNG scheme, and the Coos Port Commission appointed by Ted Kulongoski appears to be in favor, also.

These individuals, DeFazio and Kulongoski, should immediately be targeted for letters and phone calls of concern about the pipeline and the LNG proposal in Coos Bay. The proposal is bad for the environment; it is bad for the safety and security of Oregonians; it exacerbates our dependence on foreign fossil fuels at a time when the Democratic Party is at least mumbling about energy alternatives and reducing foreign fossil fuel dependence; and finally, it links Oregon's market to a global energy economy that lacks human rights and environmental safeguards for many communities that happen to reside near natural gas fields. This issue is not necessarily a "right" or "left" issue, with many "red" Oregonians fighting their local proposals.

Write or call and let them know you hold them responsible for allowing the State of Oregon to fund the Weyerhaeuser land purchase, a deal that has enabled the proposal of this enormous pipeline and threatens to create many of the sorts of problems described above.

Direct Action For Katrina Survivors

Portland, 10.02.2006 05:40

NO MORE HOMELESS KATRINA SURVIVORS!

On Monday, February 13th, the New Orleans homeless population will skyrocket, and the survivors of Katrina will be victimized again. FEMA's short-term hotel program expires for most of the 26,000 displaced hurricane survivors and most of these evacuees have not been provided with long-term, or even transitional housing solutions. The National Guard is even on call to evict these survivors at gun point. We need anyone with the means to come down here to show up in solidarity for a day of decentralized direct action and mass demonstrations. For those unable to make it, an immediate nation-wide phone call and email campaign is needed to help keep families off the street. Don't let Katrina survivors be further victimized by the poverty-promoting plans of those with the power to correct the issues!

Bush's lack of vision on health care

Portland, 10.02.2006 05:40

Profile of a lack of vision: Bush addresses health care in the State of the Union

Joe Mahoney and the Oregon Action Health Care committee joined together to watch the President deliver his fifth State of the Union address. Prior to the speech, aides said it would focus on health care. So the group waited, hoping to hear a plan to reduce the cost of health care and increase access. They hoped the President would announce plans to fix the troubled Medicare Prescription Drug plan. Instead, after 46 minutes they heard less than a minute on health care.

At a time when 60% of Americans disapprove of his work on health care, Bush still isn't proposing anything more than a repackaging of his Social Security reforms. While providing more tax breaks for wealthy Americans he will leave the lowest-income and chronically ill patients to wither away.

"As a nurse, I am appalled at President Bush's lack of vision in resolving our nation's health care crisis. Simply providing tax breaks to those who can already afford health care will make the problem worse. We need common-sense solutions that reduce costs and increase access to comprehensive health care services." Judy Lebens, Hillsboro.

Auckland: Public Rally to stop low pay!

Aotearoa, 10.02.2006 04:09

"There comes a time in everyone’s lives, when we have to make a stand for justice. This is one of those times!"

You are invited to attend a free Public Rally to Support Low Paid Workers (Featuring Imon Star from Rhombus, Olmecha, top NZ comedians, speakers and Rosita Vai from New Zealand Idol), 2pm – 4pm, Sunday 12 February, Auckland Town Hall, Queen Street.

The purpose of the meeting is to approve Unite’s bargaining strategy for all its members in 2006 and to get the whole community to support Unite’s SuperSizeMyPay.com campaign. The campaign’s three main claims are:

  • A minimum wage set at $12 per hour (Even if workers are paid more than this, any success will help lift all wages)
  • Abolish Youth Rates (Workers under 18 who do the same work as adults should get paid the same pay)
  • Secure hours of work (Many workers never know how many hours they will get each week)

UCSC Academic Senate Report Includes Anonymous Spy Testimony

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.02.2006 02:08

On February 7th, the UCSC Academic Senate Task Force investigating the police response to Tent University Santa Cruz (TUSC) released a draft report (pdf). On October 12, 2005, a student at UCSC was invited to discuss the events surrounding TUSC with the task force investigating the issue. During the course of this private meeting, the chair of the task force noted that UCSC’s administration had sent "someone" to obtain information about TUSC's off-campus workshop. This information of administrative spying on student political activity is in stark contrast to Chancellor Denton’s claims that UCSC’s administration and police are not engaged in spying on students.

UCSC Academic Senate Releases Tent University Report That Includes Anonymous Spy Testimony

Santa Cruz, CA, 10.02.2006 01:08

On February 7th, the UCSC Academic Senate Task Force investigating the police response to Tent University Santa Cruz (TUSC) released a 25 page draft report (pdf). On pages 3 and 4 of the report, in summarizing the background events leading up to the confrontation on April 18, 2005, it is stated that "The administration was particularly alarmed by the presence of the author/organizer David Solnit at training sessions at the Resource Center for Non-Violence," noting his association with the Seattle WTO protests.

On October 12, 2005, Josh Sonnenfeld, a student at UCSC, was invited to discuss the events surrounding TUSC with the Task Force investigating the issue. The TUSC Task Force was chaired by Professor Carolyn Martin Shaw, and included other professors, staff members, and a couple token students. During the course of this private meeting, Professor Shaw noted that UCSC’s administration had obtained information about the internal proceedings of a planning meeting/workshop for the participants of Tent University. This meeting, located off-campus at the RCNV, was not open to administrators or police, only the event participants.

When Professor Shaw was asked how they had obtained detailed information about what occurred during this meeting, she informed Josh that the University administration sent ‘someone’ for the sole purpose of documenting the meeting and passing the information on to administrators. It is not clear who this agent of the administration may have been, but it is clear that they did not identify themselves to student organizers, and thus, acted in the capacity of a spy. This information of administrative spying on student political activity is in stark contrast to Chancellor Denton’s claims that UCSC’s administration and police are not engaged in spying on students.

What the Earth Needs Is Less Religion and More Worship

Madison, 09.02.2006 17:08

It is hard for me to say whether I find Islamic or Christian fundamentalists more distasteful and dangerous to the Earth and prospects for post-industrial civilized society. I see little of merit in murderous and medieval Islam. And the spread of Christian thought has defiled and destroyed much in nature that is sacred and good.



Why Clean Elections Help Minority Parties

San Diego, 09.02.2006 15:38

It is often cited that the adoption of Clean Elections will do harm to minority parties. If written poorly, Clean Election legislation can hurt minority parties; however, legislation in both the state of California and San Diego account for this concern and will offer much benefit to minority parties and to the political dialogue we hear during elections. Learn how they do it...

Schumacher Furs Protest Report (Be My Bloody Valentine), February 4

Portland, 09.02.2006 02:38

Schumacher Furs now has a grotesque Valentine's Day theme going on at the store, complete with colorful balloons, cupids, and little red hearts. A desperate attempt to disguise the ugliness and cruelty of the business they're in (in reality the only thing the Schumachers seem to love is money).

We made a few valentines of our own for the protest, saying things such as "Be My Bloody Valentine" and "Nothing says I Love You like Something Dead" along with heart shaped cutouts of tortured/dead animals. Animals value their lives as much as we value ours and feel pain as much as we do. No laws govern the fur trade's abuse of animals. Facts the Schumachers choose not to face.

Support Community Access Tv – Submit Comments To FCC

Portland, 09.02.2006 01:38

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced a "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking" (NPRM) on telecommunications franchising. This is a very important issue for supporters of Community Access TV (Public Access, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) TV). At the moment it is local "franchises" negotiated between local communities/municipalities and the Cable TV companies which allocate the resources and channel space used by Community Access TV. However in recent months a variety of legislation has been introduced in Washington that would dismantle these local franchises and could, in the process, destroy Community Access TV. A strong ruling in support of local franchising by the FCC could play an important role in swaying Washington legislation towards supporting local franchising and supporting Community Access TV. Send your comments to the FCC NOW! (Deadline 13th Feb)
