Beaverton Wal-Mart DRB Hearing: Day 1 Report

Portland, 03.05.2006 20:39

City of Beaverton's Design Review Board had one of two public hearings for the proposed Walmart development near the intersection of Barnes Road and Cedar Hills Boulevard. The proposal also includes approximately 5000 square feet of office and 10,000 square feet of additional retail. For the first night, the seven member board listened to testimony from City staff, the applicant, and three citizen groups representing residents of the nearby store.

The Design Review Board gave the applicant 20 minutes to provide a presentation of their proposal. Most of the presentation focused on the architecture of the site. The Design Review Board had concerns regarding the façade of the north side of the building, garbage truck access, and the pedestrian plaza design. The attorney for the applicant mentioned he has received 453 letters of support in which 69 of the letters are residents from Beaverton.

Triple Creek Neighborhood Association, CPO1, and Save Cedar Mill each were allocated to 10 minutes of testimony. All three groups oppose the proposed development. Each group claimed the proposed development will be pedestrian unfriendly due to wide streets crossing signalized intersections. They expressed their feelings that a zoning called 'transit-orient retail commercial' should have developments that rely on public transportation instead of personal vehicles. The groups also expressed concerns regarding cut through traffic on neighborhood streets.

Tomorrow's hearing will have only public testimony. Each member of the public gets 3-minutes to speak. An opportunity to speak will be based on random drawing not 'first come, first serve.' The hearing will start at 6:30pm at Beaverton's City Hall and will last till 10:30pm.

International Day Of Action : Bristol Protest

Bristol, 03.05.2006 20:09

Sat 6th May - Protest Against Threats To Iran summary info@bristolstopwar writes: Join the International day of action against attack on Iran. As the reality of Iraq unfolds; as the lies that took us to war become more apparent, the same people that led us to war are expecting us to believe that now Iran is armed with weapons of mass destruction, posing a threat to our ‘civilisation’. We need look no further than the death and destruction in Iraq to be reminded of who the world’s real criminals are and the dangers that they present. The global anti-war movement has called for an international day of action against the threats of an attack on Iran. Join the protest in Bristol on May 6th for peace and against war. Meet on the Centre, opposite the Hippodrome at 1.00pm. Bring banners, placards. Tell your friends.

Trafficking in Children

San Diego, 03.05.2006 16:39

The Trafficking of children through the U.S.-Mexico border runs rampant. The U.S. State Department estimates that each year up to 17,500 people, primarily women and children, are trafficked into the U.S. to be sold or subjected to labor or commercial sexual exploitation. The United Nations lists Mexico as the number one exporter of exploited children into North America.

Indymedia Film Night - The God Who Wasn't There

Bristol, 03.05.2006 16:08

Monday 8th May @ Cube Cinema. Doors open 7.30pm, film starts at 8pm. Monday 8th May @ Cube Cinema. Doors open 7.30pm, film starts at 8pm. Tony Blair has proclaimed that God will judge whether he was right to send British troops to Iraq, echoing statements from his ally George Bush. Bin Laden claims God is on his side - but then so does Bush?? Perhaps it is time to take a closer look at God? 'Bowling for Columbine' did it to the gun culture. 'Super Size Me' did it to fast food. Now 'The God Who Wasn't There' does it to religion. Holding modern Christianity up to a bright spotlight, this bold and often hilarious new film asks the questions few dare to ask. Questions that need asking as Blair and Bush claim that the almighty is guiding them along! The film follows the journey of former fundamentalist, Brian Flemming, who talks to such luminaries as Jesus Seminar fellow Robert M. Price, professor Richard Dawkins, author Sam Harris and historian Richard Carrier. The Los Angeles Times calls it "provocative - to put it mildly."

Les migrant-e-s avaient cette année une place toute particulière et ont pu faire entendre leur voix, sous l'impulsion de la SambaBand de Gent & Amsterdam. Les antipubs aussi étaient en forme avec le nettoyage du centre ville de l'agression publicitaire en forme de sucette. Les flexworkers et leurs ami-e-s ont comme de coutume stigmatisé les agences d'intérim. Apparition cette année d'activistes nous interrogeant sur la décroissance, de vacataires baladant leur icône "bob le précaire", de clowns insurgés distrayant la police, etc… En marge de l'euromayday; des vélorutionnaires ont également investi l'espace public [ récit | photos | interview | communiqué ]

Rivolta popolare e repressione in Kurdistan

Switzerland, 03.05.2006 11:37

Conclusi i festeggiamenti del Newroz e partiti gli osservatori internazionali, sono migliaia le persone rimaste coinvolte in violenti scontri nel Kurdistan. La rivolta è scoppiata martedì 28 marzo a Diyarbakir durante il funerale di 14 militanti separatisti del PKK (Partito dei Lavoratori del Kurdistan), morti in seguito a uno scontro con la polizia turca. Il PKK è considerato "organizzazione terroristica" dal governo di Ankara, dall’Unione Europea e dagli Stati Uniti; il leader Abdullah Ocalan sconta l’ergastolo.
Il ferimento di 31 persone ha innescato una reazione di violentissima protesta nella regione del Kurdistan. Centinaia di giovani sono rimasti coinvolti negli scontri con esercito e polizia. I morti, secondo le poche fonti ufficiali turche, sono decine; centinaia i feriti.
Il premier turco Recep Tayyp Erdogan, incapace di nascondere la guerra sporca e i fatti più macroscopici, condanna le trasmissioni della TV satelleitare kurda Roj TV che trasmette dalla Danimarca.
Lo stesso premier ha dichiarato esplicitamente che la lotta al "terrorismo" non può certo essere ostacolata da donne o bambini...
Frattanto l'Unione Europea tace: troppi interessi economici in gioco.

May Day 2006

Portland, 03.05.2006 10:39

An audio file featuring about 50 minutes of the powerful and engaging speakers from the May Day '06 Rally in the South Park Blocks in front of Smith Memorial Hall at Portland State University on May 1, 2006.

The remarks delivered to the crowd, prior to their March through downtown Portland and back to PSU, are in both Spanish and English. Speakers include Ed Edmo, Native American Poet and Spoken Word artist; Carrie Dann, Shoshone elder and activist; a student speaking for students; a union member; a day laborer, and an African American speaker. Other spoke during this time and after returning from the March, but this is all I recorded.

All spoke passionately for their Latino people and for America, their country. The Rally was flush with American flags and signs, some declaring that "no human is illegal" that "immigrant rights are basic rights," many reminding Americans that they too come from immigrant roots and that these Latino immigrants, despite being undocumented, have arrived with a strong work ethic and family values.

Any Portland May Day Reportback?

worker bee: When I was riding downtown to the rally I saw a group of high school age people marching over the Hawthorne bridge behind a banner or flag (couldn't see what kind). As soon as they hit the west end they began chanting slogans about workers' rights-they had definitely made the connection. And these were, it appeared, white kids. Maybe they'd walked out of school to come down.

As for the event itself I have not seen that many people march and stay strong and together ever before. And why have all forms of media diminished the number of people? There were so many that when I ducked out to have some food it was still going past when I got done so I hopped back in. Many people were young (under 35?) and they stayed strong and spirited the whole way which was very long and wound around up through the Pearl district and back to PSU.

pchy: I thought the march was awe inspiring to say the least. I was near the front of the march... within the first block or so that is. It was a good spot b/c we really got to see the "whoa, this is still going?" reactions of on lookers. I had expected there to be a big turn out, but nothing like I had witnessed. On some of the small hills throughout the route, I had an excellent vantage point to see the thounsands of people in front of me filling the street from sidewalk to sidewalk. Turning around, I saw at least twice as many people behind. The energy was incredible too... even as we approached the last turn, we were still chanting, clapping, shouting, and whistling. Flags were still being waved while we marched up Broadway towards PSU. [ read more ]

"Illegal Immigrants" Take to the Streets

Bringing up the rear is harder than I expected. Block on block I wonder how far back this mass of people extends. All the way up to 8th, and then left, and then a few more blocks, I finally make it to where the contiguous mass of participants thins into a milling crowd of spectators. I turn and step into the mille, empty my paper cup and throw it into a garbage can, and then start slowly back down the path from whence I came.

I've walked about a mile, down and twisting around the streets of downtown Portland. The only thing of note to strike me came as I walked under the glass bridge that spans the two building of the World Trade Center. There, a business man in a suit stood leaning up against the glass, staring down onto the mass of people in the street. It struck me that this could very well be the one single thing that this man feared the most - the masses joined as one, rising up like a great wave, high enough to wash him out of his glass tower.

John Kenneth Galbraith dead at 97

Portland, 03.05.2006 09:39

Liberal economist and activist, John Kenneth Galbraith, died Saturday night in Boston at the age of 97. The liberal PhD in Economics and author of more than a dozen books on sociology, economics, and relevant history has his obituary from the Associated Press listed below. However, the story does not fully pay tribute to his liberal credentials in life, so I've taken some time to pay respects and hopefully inspire Indymedia readers who are unfamiliar with his work to read some of his books.



Support Rep. Ron Paul's Bill to Force Fed to Keep Publishing M3

Portland, 03.05.2006 09:39

In a tragically under reported story, new Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke declared that the Fed would no longer publish M3, the index that shows total U.S. dollars in circulation. By doing so, the Fed has eliminated transparency into the total money supply being printed. Representative Ron Paul has introduced legislation to force the Fed to keep publishing M3. Call your Congressional Representative and demand that he/she support this legislation.

Portland, 03.05.2006 09:39

Thanks to all who have visited the site. It was a beginning and more was planned. Unfortunately this letter to me from the Schumacher's attorney via the web host was my birthday present from the Schumachers. The site is down for the moment but I will try to get it back online real soon, possibly with a new domain name. Don't forget...protest day tomorrow in front of Schumacher's, 811 SW Morrison St. Peace everyone.

Update: Thanks to everyone who has posted comments, they have been very helpful... I was told by Bluehost that after my conversation with them earlier today they reconsidered their determination and have now determined the domain www.schumacherfur.com is not in violation of their terms of service. I was told they would have to take me to court if they wish to try to get it shut down again and they would have a difficult case.

I re-registered the domain yesterday and I'm free in the eyes of Bluehost to make it active. I also registered www.shumacherfurs.com (I was told this one was never in violation of the tos). [ read more >> ]

Schumacher Furs Stalking Order Trial

Krahmer filed a stalking order against Mills after the March 4 protests, where Mills and Clout Tolstoy were arrested (and brutalized) by Sgt. Larry Graham.

I believe Mr. Mills was engaged in constitutionally protected speech, and that his behavior does not warrant the issuance of a stalking order against him. That issue will be before Judge Beckmann tomorrow.

Update: Unfortunately, the judge ruled against Jonathan Mills. I believe the judge let in too much extraneous information, and will discuss an appeal with Mills.

In the meantime, every other person is welcome to protest, and Mr. Mills can even protest against Nicholas Ungar Furs, Saks Fifth Avenue (who *always* was advertising fur in the New York Times this winter) or other stores. [ read more >> ]



David Korten's new book &quot;The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community&quot;

Portland, 03.05.2006 09:39

[April 27 2006] David Korten is the author of the international best seller "When Corporations Rule the World". His latest book, "The Great Turning" will hit bookstores in the next few weeks. The End Corporate Personhood Committee at First Unitarian Church got some advanced copies for a study group which began last night. Here is my report.

Last night, 30 people turned off their TV's and met at First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland to begin a four week study group around David Korten's newest book, "The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community". It was very inspiring to see such a great turnout and such a diverse crowd.

Korten argues that "Empire" is how our society is currently organized through heirachy and violence but that isn't the natural order of things and we can choose differently. Throughout the book he compares and contrasts what he calls "Empire" with "Earth Community". Our choice is between these two models.



Portland Now Has the Largest Peace Symbol in the World

Portland, 03.05.2006 09:39

VFP 72 has adopted a site and created a new Portland Peace Memorial Park which sports a 75-foot peace symbol made of turf. Go to the corner of N. Interstate and Oregon Street to see and enjoy it. (Between the Convention Center and the Willamette River, at the east end of the Steele Bridge)

The background of the symbol will be filled in with flowers to be planted on May 20, and many volunteers are needed to help that day. A Memorial Day dedication will take place May 29, 2006.

The purpose of the park is to memorialize all victims of every war, including civilians and future generations, a "peace" memorial rather than a "war" memorial, representing the true human cost of war.

May Day Report

United States, 03.05.2006 03:37

Well over 10,000 people took to the streets in Austin this May Day to demand justice for immigrant communities. The crowd gathered at the capital, marched down Congress Avenue to Cesar Chavez, and proceeded to Cantu Park for a celebration.

The crowd was overwhelmingly composed of working people of color, students, and their families, supported by a strong presence of activists, academics and other allies. The tone of the event was critical and celebratory with demands for dignity, justice, and sane policy accompanied by affirmations of ethnic, national and cultural identity. It was a coming together of many different groups of people under many banners with rhetoric ranging from calls to vote to calls for prolonged struggle. The march culminated in a community gathering at Cantu Park that had the feel of a festival. Musicians, dancers and speakers reflected the sentiment of the crowd. This crowd was at once creative and oppositional, affirming lives and identities while defying the racist practices, discourses and policies we are all too familiar with.
