Gay Marriage Ban Would Violate Constitution

Tennessee, 02.03.2006 04:09

The US Constitution was constructed by our Founding Fathers to protect the rights of all Americans. Although an imperfect document, the Constitution has mechanisms built in to increase individual rights and freedoms. That historical arc of justice is bending the wrong way these days, though, and no where is it further askew than recent discussions concerning a constitutional amendment in Tennessee to ban gay marriage.

Rally to Save the Historic Murphy Hotel!

Richmond, 02.03.2006 01:08

We need people to gather at 9th and Broad Street on Wednesday at noon to show the state legislators (who do not live in this town but are from everywhere else in the state) that we city dwellers refuse to allow for the demolition of our downtown landmark buildings – especially when an alternative to demolition is supported by a State funded study. This study concluded that the best this building should be saved and reused for a number of development options(one includes a VCU/UR urban law school partnership) The State’s parking and office space needs can be met by using the vacant lot located between 8th and 9th street. Please see the attached flyer and share it with neighbors, friends, family members and anyone interested in improving our city. Would it be possible to post this on the calendar? I’m going to send this out to some RVA blogs and see if they too will post this “call to action”. Thank you so much for your help! Again, if you have any questions, please call or email me. Thanks again! Mary Anne Conmy 2502 East Leigh Street Richmond, VA 23233 804-248-8547

Fred Meyer Destroys Good Food

Portland, 01.03.2006 11:09

It seems that Hollywood Fred Meyer has not learned its lesson from two years ago and stills disgards HUGE pounds of perfectly good food while telling the community otherwise.

On Friday, February 24th I personally witnessed a fellow employee of the meat department tossing into the garbage compacter at least 130 packages of meat products with an expiration date of Feb. 28th. The fellow employee told me they needed to make room for fresher meat coming in.

I went immediately to the FOD (Food operations Director)and wanted to save some for my dog but no deal. I then suggested somehow getting it to a homeless shelter freezer but no deal. Apparently Kroger makes for money "writing it off" than giving it away or even selling it at 50% off to an employee.

Council Cuts Public Transport

Bristol, 01.03.2006 11:08

"Good public transport is clearly not a priority for the Lib Dems" 'Good public transport is clearly not a priority for the Lib Dems' As climate scientists issue a dire warning, locally Cat Hobbs reports that Lib Dem group on Bristol City Council voted at yesterday's budget meeting to cut the local rail subsidy and to reduce overall spending on buses and trains. 'Good public transport is clearly not a priority for the Lib Dems' said campaigner Julie Boston. Bristol City Council, led by Lib Dems, voted to scrap the entire local rail subsidy for the Severn Beach line. This will mean a reduction in service, with trains starting later and finishing earlier and a bus service replacement for the train from Avonmouth to Severn Beach. Rail campaigners point out that it also represents a lost opportunity. The £136,000 subsidy could have been used to fund a half hourly service at peak times. The Lib Dems also cut 5 bus routes, in an overall reduction of the transport budget for buses and trains.

Schumacher Furs Protest Report, February 25

Portland, 01.03.2006 00:38

Colorful red and yellow tulips and daffodils adorned the display windows of Schumacher Furs this Saturday. Usually symbolizing spring and rebirth, these flowers were perhaps more representative of funeral flowers, as if placed there in remembrance of the 40 million animals killed each year by the fur industry. A pink rabbit fur purse hung gaudily in one of the windows. Hey Schumacher: dying fur pink does not change the grim reality of cruel death and needless suffering. Millions of animals, including dogs and cats, are bludgeoned, boiled, strangled with wire nooses, and bled to death before they are skinned for their fur. See http://www.furisdead.com for info and videos about how animals are used in the fur industry.

From inside the funeral parlor called Schumacher Furs, old Mr. Schumacher himself pathetically held a sign calling one of the protesters a whore (she was one of the people arrested recently which is likely how he knows her name). An act of desperation by a desperate man. We have been told that protesters have actually been offered money to stay away from the protest by someone claiming to be a friend of one of the Schumacher employees. The Schumachers are likely quite surprised that our protests did not end at Christmas. In fact, the protests continue to get bigger and livelier as more and more people get educated about the fur industry and decide to join us. This week, a Schumacher call to the police only resulted in a police officer politely reminding us to keep the sidewalk clear.

May this spring see a rebirth of compassion and kindness towards all living beings. Come join us this Saturday in front of Schumacher Furs at SW 9th and Morrison from 12:30ish until 4:00 or later. Signs, leaflets, and vegan treats provided.
