Arrested for Protesting Against Terrorism Donald Nelson received a hero’s warm welcome at The Farm Welcome Center. A crowd of friends welcomed him home from a three month stint in jail in Memphis for protesting the terrorist training camp in Ft. Benning in Columbus, GA. A banner was unfurled, many hugs were exchanged and his lawyer, Alan Graf, brought a portable guitar amp up to the gate to play a rousing Jimi Hendrix version of the Star Spangled Banner. He looked tired and thinner, and glad to be free. When asked if he was going to climb the fence again, he said, “No! I am not going back.” But he is going to keep on working to have America do the right thing and stop training terrorists for South American dictators. “I consider closing down the SOA, [now named WHINSEC], an important goal. We must continue to let our congress people know our wishes.”
As the only daily newspaper in the State of Oregon with state-wide circulation and the largest newspaper in the Pacific Northwest, the Opinion Page editors of The Oregonian carry the burden of a public trust to provide a wide-open forum for debate on the pressing issues of our day. With respect to the debate on the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, however, the editors of the Opinion Pages have failed to meet their obligations to the public. This report documents the findings of a one-year study of the Opinion Pages of The Oregonian conducted by Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights and Palestine Media Watch. Specifically, this report is concerned with the content presented in The Oregonian's Editorial Section and the newspaper's selection of commentaries, cartoons, and letters to the editor dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for the period beginning on June 1, 2004 and ending on May 31, 2005.

Support the Prisoners On Tuesday April 11, two DC residents and twenty seven other SOA Watch human rights advocates from around the United States reported to federal prisons to begin serving sentences of one to six months for their acts of nonviolent civil disobedience opposing the controversial U.S. Army's School of the Americas (SOA/ WHINSEC). The 29 - ranging in age from 19 to 81 - are among 37 people arrested at Fort Benning last November and later sentenced in a federal court. They joined four others already serving prison time for the same action.

Some thousants of demonstrators from the left wing and the anarchist-antiauthoritarian movement demonstrated in Athens streets, as a reaction to the visit of Condoleeza Rice. Since the previous day, the riot police had blocked Pandio University, while the streets were full of police patrols and undercovered policemen since the early hours of Tuesday. While the "high personalities" played on diplomacy and impressions during "high-level" meetings, heavy police forces (more than 3.000 policemen according the authorities) blocked main streets and went on a wider prohibition of demonstrations in the very center of Athens. When the demonstrators tried to go through the blockage, tons of tear-gas was sprayed. During the clashes which spread around, 9 people were brought before the police headquarters and 2 demonstrators were injured.

May Day will mark a historical national opportunity for immigrant and labor groups to make their voices heard while pending immigration legislation in Congress. The Great American Boycott of 2006 or a “day without immigrants” is a nationwide general strike and economic boycott to protest the anti-immigrant sentiments and actions across the country. The NOHR4437 national coalition, which has its stronguest roots in Los Angeles, California, is calling for full amnesty and dignity for the millions of undocumented workers presently in the U.S.
"You can run, but you can't hide, even in the heartland" Announcement Halliburton has moved it's annual shareholder's meeting from Houston to Duncan, Ok. Protests have taken place in Houston for the last three years and moving the meeting to Oklahoma is not going to change that situation. Groups from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, California and Louisiana will come together in Duncan to tell Halliburton that they can run, but they can't hide, even in the heartland. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Friday, April 21, 2006 Contact: OK Veterans For Peace Jon Cantrell (405) 317-8826 AntiWarFair Coaltion Darla Shelden (405) 840-0244 OKLAHOMANS TO JOIN PROTEST IN DUNCAN, OK HOUSTON GLOBAL AWARENESS COLLECTIVE ANNOUNCES PLANS TO FOLLOW HALLIBURTON TO DUNCAN, OK FOR ITS MAY 17 SHAREHOLDERS’ MEETING Oklahoma City - On March 16, the Halliburton Corporation announced that its 2006 shareholders’ meeting will be held in founder, Erle P. Halliburton’s hometown of Duncan, Oklahoma. Traditionally held in Houston, Texas at the Four Seasons Hotel, Halliburton’s annual shareholders’ meeting has become a lightning rod for the local community’s outrage and protests organized by the Houston Global Awareness Collective (HGAC). Last year’s protest resulted in the arrest of eight Houstonians engaging in non-violent civil disobedience inside the hotel with eight additional arrests taking place during the rally outside the hotel. Oklahomans will be joining in on the peaceful demonstration held in Duncan at the Simmons Center along with other groups such as CorpWatch, Global Exchange, Halliburton Watch and a group from New Orleans to represent Katrina victims. For nearly three years, HGAC has organized spirited protests, educational forums and corporate counter-recruitment campaigns against Halliburton and its subsidiary, KBR. Maureen Haver, a member of the grassroots organization, explains their grievances with Halliburton, “Halliburton represents Corporate America run amok. With Halliburton you find war profiteering and crooked accounting practices in Iraq, bribe scandals in Nigeria and shameless exploitation of the Katrina tragedy. The public’s patience with scandal plagued corporations is waning and if the government officials won’t hold corporate cronies like Halliburton accountable, the people will.” Protesters plan to make their presence known in Duncan, Oklahoma on May 17, 2006 and are encouraged by the fact that Halliburton is so afraid of public scrutiny that it would relocate a major meeting to a remote small town in the middle of Oklahoma. The move certainly calls their community leadership, business acumen and investment value into question. Organizations in and around the state including Oklahoma Veterans for Peace, AntiWarFair Coalition the Peace House and Bring Them Home (Norman) have expressed a commitment to attend the event taking place in Duncan, OK on May 17, 2006. In recent days Halliburton has garnered even more negative attention with reports that their subsidiary KBR knowingly exposed U.S. soldiers to contaminated water that could have potentially led to sickness and death. “There are so many Halliburton misdeeds it is hard to keep track,” observes HGAC member Rachel Clarke-Alvarez, “but on May 17 we will be in Duncan, Oklahoma to remind Halliburton of each and every one of them.” Event Details: Who: Oklahomans, Texans, Lousianans and other globally concerned citizens What: Peaceful demonstration at Halliburton shareholders’ meeting When: Wednesday, May 17, 2006 @ 8:00 AM Where: Simmons Center - 800 Chisholm Trail Parkway , Duncan, OK 73533 ///

UM Contractor UNICCO on OSHA 12 Worst Health & Safety Violators List
Scotland Against Criminalising Communities have expressed alarm at the arrest of three more men in the Stirling area on Monday under “anti-terrorism” legislation. These arrests follow the arrest of Mohammed Atif Siddique at his family’s home in Alva on 13 April. At the time of writing Mohammed has been imprisoned without charge for 12 days. If he had been suspected of serial murder, armed robbery, rape, or any other "non-terrorist" offence, police would have had to charge him within 36 hours or release him.
"SPD-Minister Müntefering will Jobverweigerer härter anpacken" schreibt die Presse (Focus vom 24.4.06). Eine Steigerungsmöglichkeit der Fiesheiten bei Hartz IV können sich Erwerbslose schon lange nicht mehr vorstellen. Nun sollen die Erwerbslosen noch weiter ausgehungert werden, damit sie ja schnell wieder für einen Billiglohn schuften gehen. Das neue Horrorszenario nennt sich SGB II - Optimierungsgesetz und sieht massive Kürzungen bei ALG II-EmpfängerInnen vor.

Everyone knows how absolutely dangerous it is to have a woman standing in the public square singing AT AUDIBLE LEVELS about women's rights, birth control, deadbeat dads, saving our forests, and civil rights issues. When people cannot figure out how to ban me from busking on political content, they resort to scratching around for some other way to shut me down (or shut me up, more realistically). Santa Cruz tried calling my work "obscene" which failed...

About 40 people joined us at Schumacher Furs throughout Saturday to protest the fur industry's cruel treatment of animals. We chanted enthusiastically, leafleted, did street theater, made chalk drawings of animals on the sidewalk, and ate vegan food (bagels and toppings, brownies, blueberry muffins, and doughnuts donated to us by Voodoo doughnuts).
From Amanda's campaign website: "For 20 years, I've been an activist and an advocate, making a difference in neighborhoods, schools, parks, and holding development accountable to the Portland way. My experience is in Portland from the citizens' perspective - an 'outsider' helping others get what they need from government - and I'm proud of my record of getting results."
Time for traditional Bristolian MayDay Revolt: This year it's the Packers Field Funday Time for traditional Bristolian MayDay Revolt: This year it's the Packers Field Funday Packers Field writes: Monday May 1st, May Day. Once again Packer’s Field will be in the caring hands of the local community, reverberating to the sound of games, music, dancing and laughter. Following the success of the two previous fun days, Packers Field will again play host to a dazzling array of sights, sounds and activity. There will be 7-a-side football for the friendly-yet-competitive, softball for the ‘swingers’ amongst you, music for dancing, food for eating, and information on the campaign to digest at your leisure. There will also be an exclusive maypole dance by Bristol’s premier can-can troupe, and activities for children to divert their eyes to! “We want more!”, I hear you cry. More?!?! What if we throw some local art and some martial arts into the equation? I thought as much, and there may yet be more...The Packers Field campaign continues to go from strength to strength, and May Day is a chance to remember why we are fighting to keep it free and open to the community. This is our vision of a safe, green, fun environment- not fences, concrete and hire charges. Please come along, show your support for the campaign, and have a cracking good afternoon into the bargain. All are welcome.
