#2 Logging... The Greg Walden Bill

Portland, 16.05.2006 18:43

Is Greg Walden desecrating Thoreau's Walden?

It is once again the time of year when many in Congress attempt to use high energy prices as justification for short-sighted, outdated and dirty energy policies instead of the smart energy solutions that could ease the burden on consumers while protecting the environment at the same time.

Under the guise of "forest recovery," Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) has introduced a bill which would fast track destructive logging projects in National Forests affected by natural disturbances such as fires, droughts, or windstorms. The Walden logging bill, HR 4200, would remove basic protections for clean water and wildlife habitat by cutting meaningful environmental review and excluding public involvement. This harmful bill has passed the House Resources and Agriculture committees; a floor vote is expected this week.

Fuel Economy Standards: Congressmen Sherwood Boehlert and Ed Markey offered an amendment to raise fuel economy standards to 33 miles per gallon for both cars and trucks by 2016. The amendment failed in committee but is expected to come back for a floor vote next week.

Additional Energy: In the coming weeks, both the House and Senate are expected to move on more energy measures. Of course, we can certainly anticipate maneuvering to open America's special places to more oil and gas drilling including efforts to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and open additional acreage in the Gulf of Mexico to offshore drilling.

Global Warming: a first-ever House floor vote on global warming.



Olympia Green Scare: FBI Knocking Continues

Portland, 16.05.2006 18:43

The FBI is investigating the Olympia community for information regarding the 2001 alleged arson at a UW horticulture lab and and the 1998 alleged arsons at two Olympia area APHIS-ADC facilities. The federal government has until this Sunday, May 21st to issue any more indictments regarding the UW arson. These incidents are being investigated as acts of domestic terrorism, although there were no injuries nor immediate threats to life incurred in any of these events.

The trial of defendant Briana Waters is scheduled to begin June 5 in Seattle. The grand jury in Seattle may also issue more subpoenas this week in relation to the trial. Multiple indictments have already been issued in these cases as part of a broad nationwide round-up of environmental and animal rights activists called "Operation Backfire" by the FBI, and colloquially referred to as the "green scare", a reference to the "red scare" round-up of suspected communists in the US in the 1950's that violated the constitutional rights of citizens to free expression of political and social dissent.

The FBI's knocking campaign for information has been targeting members of the Olympia community. Many local groups are calling for solidarity in not talking to the FBI. Even if you are innocent, you may incriminate yourself or others if you choose to cooperate with the FBI and answer their questions. The FBI's knocking campaign for information is a threat to civil liberties as the government seeks to isolate and threaten potential informants in an effort to intimidate people into giving up their constitutional right to remain silent. The FBI's activities have a chilling effect on the free expression of dissent in our community.

If the FBI or grand jury is targeting you or someone you know, please contact the Civil Liberties Defense Center in Eugene, Oregon at 541-687-9180, info(at)cldc.org. If you are in Olympia, the Olympia Civil Liberties Resource is here to help you obtain community and legal support. Contact us at 360-556-6878, olycivlib(at)riseup.net.

Sacred Activism Conference: Finding a New Political Compass in America

Portland, 16.05.2006 16:40

Over 800 people participated in the Sacred Activism Conference held May 10-13 in Lynwood, WA. Some were activists and others were seeking a way to become more active. Coming from many different wisdom traditions and life circumstances, they shared the beliefs that we are all connected and political activism is the way to create a community, nation and world that reflects our highest selves. Saving the spotted owl and old growth forests is not just about saving those particular living beings but about saving the world for our grandchildren because everything is interconnected and interdependent.

The conference also provided evidence that there is a growing number of Americans who share similar values. Paul Ray calls them the Cultural Creatives and Barbara Marx Hubbard declares we are the New Main Stream. The data show that well over 45% of the voters are disconnected from traditional labels of Democrat and Republican. The data also showed that there is far more agreement on core issues than the media or our political system want us to know. In the so-called Red and Blue states are people in significant numbers who long for meaning in their lives and to provide a safe and caring world for all the children. They share similar views about ecology, limits to growth, planetary survival, elimination of poverty, limiting corporate power in politics and demanding an ethic of social responsibility, enhancing education for all, providing health care for all, and of course, ending this war, and all wars.



Greece, Athens 4-7 May: An anarchist forum, a demo and a riot

Portland, 16.05.2006 16:40

For the first time in Greece, between the 4th and 7th of May the Libertarian Anarchist Antiauthoritarian Forum took place

On Saturday May the 6th several hours before the anti-war demo organized by the ESF, an anarchist demo took place in downtown Athens from Monastiraki Sq. to Propylaia with more than 1.500 people that were heavily (and I really mean heavily) guarded by riot police. Its http://athens.indymedia.org/front.php3?lang=el&article_id=502400 http://athens.indymedia.org/front.php3?lang=el&article_id=502400 link to athens.indymedia.org

Several hours later as soon as the ESF's demo begun hundreds of anarchists in small groups emerged out of the crowd. Despite the massive amount of policemen (the State talks about more than 8.000 cops) the managed to attack many targets firebombing Banks, ATM's, police cars and vans, cctv cameras, several embassies, the headquarters of the greek police, a state's ministry, the greek parliament, Mac Donalds, Starbucks and many more.

During all that time the ESF people did what it was unconceivable even for leftists. They managed the rally as if it was their own, and eagerly played the part of the police or used the Police for their purposes. These are the same people that are allegedly against neo-liberalism, war and the State's repression. Although all of the targets symbolized Capitalism and the State in many occasions they attempted to arrest people (sometimes just on the grounds of being hooded or wearing black clothes) and hand them over to the police, while in other occasions they attacked passers-by based on the same aforementioned criteria which resulted to dozens of arrests and 17 prosecutions including minors and immigrants.

Puerto Rico, Ciudad del Caribe???

Portland, 16.05.2006 16:39

Sobre Puerto Rico...
Históricamente, el desarrollo urbanístico ha sido uno de los mayores enemigos de la Madre Tierra. Los intereses que mueven el desarrollo urbanístico no permite una conservación real de los ecosistemas. En Puerto Rico, al igual en el resto
del mundo, ni ha existido, ni existe, ni existirá legislación alguna que tenga como prioridad la defensa y conservación de la naturaleza. En la actual sociedad, el progreso económico es sinónimo de destrucción permanente del medio natural que nos rodea y nos da vida.

Por ejemplo, en Puerto Rico existen leyes que supuestamente
"protegen" los ríos y sus cuencas hidrográficas, sin embargo, y como resultado de dichas leyes, mas del 60% de los ríos están contaminados siendo sus aguas nocivas para los seres que habitamos la Madre Tierra; entiéndase, seres humanos, fauna y flora. Es decir, ni hay agua potable, ni la habrá porque, desgraciadamente, el servicio de agua potable, al igual que todos los aspectos que conciernen a la sociedad, están controlados por los burócratas de siempre y están al servicio de la misma gente que contaminan el medio ambiente.

Hay que recordar que Puerto Rico es parte del TLC de Norteamérica, conocido en sus siglas en ingles como NAFTA. Los gobernantes mundiales al igual que los de Puerto Rico, hacen su papel en defensa del Estado de las cosas. En puerto Rico si algo sobran son los hoteles y las urbanizaciones (cárceles al aire libre) en general y los centros comerciales que solo promueven la destrucción de la naturaleza, la enajenación y el consumo inhumano e innecesario de la sociedad.

No necesitamos que se siga construyendo urbanizaciones, proyectos industriales, centros comerciales, hoteles, entre otros, la naturaleza necesita vivir en armonía. ¿Por que seguir destruyéndola? Necesitamos sembrar, necesitamos que se pare de construir. La civilización ha sido el mayor enemigo de la Madre Tierra! Respetemos la vida y el lugar en el que habitamos, no sus leyes! Volvamos al camino de la autosuficiencia, salgamos de la dependencia.

Presentación del libro Devenires Cíborg. Arquitectura, Urbanismo y Redes de Comunicación

estrecho / madiaq, 16.05.2006 16:09

Feria del Libro de Sevilla/ Viernes, 19, 13 h/ Plaza del Triunfo. Entrada libre.

Devenir denota el paso de un estado a otro. Hoy es ya un lugar común aformar que la globalización y las tecnologías de la comunicación y la información, cuya acción conjunta a finales del siglo 20 venimos denominando Sociedad Red, están transformando nuestras vidas - quiénes somos individual y socialmente. También están transformando nuestras formas de habitar; nuestras ciudades, nuestros lugares de trabajo y nuestras casas. El texto presenta, desde una perspectiva, a la vez política, técnica y artística, una serie de investigaciones acerca de estos cambios espaciales; indagaciones teóricas, pero sobre todo aplicaciones experimentales de ideas, conceptos e intuiciones en cuyo desarrollo vienen participando numerosas y diversas redes y movimientos sociales, - entre las que destacan experiencias como Indymedia Estrecho, los hackmeetings, Fadaiat y el MayDay Sur.

El autor del libro, José Pérez de Lama, aka osfa, participa activamente en Indymedia Estrecho, y en el grupo hackitectura.net. Devenires cíborg está editado por el Secretariado de Investigación de la Universidad de Sevilla, Colección de Divulgación Científica. Fue seleccionado para su publicación en concurso conovocado por la Universidad de Sevilla el pasado abril de 2005.



Code Pink Challenges White House

Portland, 16.05.2006 14:39

Code Pink activists showed up on Mother's Day to challenge the War Party. They took their case directly to the White House. In a rally that included a mini-parade, speeches, a sing along and the waving of plenty of roses, the Ladies in Pink were in great form. Cindy Sheehan said they are "making a difference." And, Actress Susan Sarandon read an open letter to Laura Bush, in which she mocked Laura's husband, "The Decider," as a warmonger.

On Sunday, May 14, 2006, a colorful protest action, sponsored by "Code Pink: Women for Peace," was staged directly in front of the White House. It included a mini-parade, a sing along and plenty of roses waving around. The event, a 24-hour vigil, began the day before. Its theme was "Declare Peace on Mother's Day."

One of the campaigns that Code Pink, a national organization, has launched is to get the junior Democratic Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton, "to listen.", to sign on to a Resolution calling for bringing all the troops home, now. Clinton continues to vote to fund the war, which was initiated by the Bush-Cheney Gang based on damnable lies. In essence, pseudo-liberal politicos, such as Clinton and Kerry have acted as accomplices of the Bush-Cheney Gang. As of today, 2,439 brave American military personnel have died in the war, another 17,869 have been wounded. The cost of the conflict is now put at $280.8 billion, while Iraq, a country of 27 million, lies mostly in ruins, and its death toll may exceed 100,000. (3)

As Bush Militarizes Border, Local Communities Say No.

San Diego, 16.05.2006 05:09

Border communities are united in their opposition to the Goode Amendment, and fear that the placement of National Guard troops on the border with Mexico will further exacerbate the state-of siege mentality that has extended over the region since militarization of the region began, in the name of immigration enforcement and the war on drugs, over a decade ago. Currently, border communities face arbitrary detentions and arrests by the Border Patrol, racial profiling is rampant in Latino neighborhoods, the presence of military vehicles and infrastructure are pervasive, and the use of deadly force by Border Patrol agents claims innocent lives each year.

Nueva Reforma Laboral. Más precariedad.

estrecho / madiaq, 16.05.2006 00:08

#media_6359;left#Comisiones Obreras, UGT, Patronal y Gobierno acaban de firmar una nueva Reforma Laboral. Se trata de un paso más en la flexibilización del mercado de trabajo para favorecer al sector empresarial. Esta reforma se da en un contexto donde la precariedad golpea a amplios sectores de nuestra sociedad, el precio de la vivienda crece exponencialmente y la temporalidad llega a más del 35% de los trabajadores.
Se trata de una nueva señal de la debilidad de los sindicatos "mayoritarios" y su complicidad con la continua precarización de las condiciones de vida y trabajo. Una muestra de la necesidad de construir espacios de encuentro entre el sindicalismo de base, los movimientos sociales y los espacios de rebeldía contra la precariedad.
Esta reforma laboral:
>> Flexibiliza la contratación y la hace más barata.
>> Abarata los despidos y reduce las cotizaciones empresariales.
>> Impone las subcontrataciones como modelo generalizado de temporalidad.
>> Elimina de una vez por todas con el contrato ordinario estable fijo e indemnizado con 45 días.
>> Incrementa la inseguridad jurídica y la indefensión de todos los/las trabajadores/as.

>>Comunicado de CGT contra la reforma de la Patronal
>>CNT contra la Reforma Laboral
>>Campaña unitaria estatal de movilizaciones contra la reforma laboral
>>Los sindicatos de "clase" y la reforma laboral.
>> Gobierno, Empresarios, CC.OO y UGT consolidan el modelo flexible y precario.

>>No a la Reforma Laboral - No a la burocracia sindical - No nos representan Por un ciclo de luchas contra la precariedad y por los derechos sociales.

¿Qué pasa con la Policia Municipal de Granada?

estrecho / madiaq, 15.05.2006 12:38

Tenemos un grave problema en Granada. Desde hace años viene siendo un secreto a voces, algo denunciado públicamente en numerosas ocasiones pero contra lo que no se ha encontrado forma alguna de tomar medidas efectivas: la brutalidad de la Policía Municipal de Granada.


En los dos últimos meses hemos podido conocer los detalles de dos vergonzosas actuaciones protagonizadas por agentes de la Policía Municipal, gracias a que sus victimas han querido dejar constancia de la humillación y la violencia a las que fueron sometidas. El pasado mes fue un grupo de gente que tocaba música en San Nicolás, recientemente un ciclista solitario que tuvo la osadía de defender verbalmente su derecho a circular en bicicleta por una ciudad que esta siendo devastada por el tráfico motorizado con la complicidad del Ayuntamiento.
Pero ¿Cuantas personas que son victimas cotidianas de los mismos abusos no hacen público ni denuncian los atropellos por miedo a represalias o por impotencia?




Communities Remember the Original Spirit of Mothers Day

United States, 15.05.2006 12:38

From the bosom of the devastated Earth a voice goes up with our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm!" -- Julia Ward Howe, Mother's Day Proclamation of 1870.

Americans did more than buy cards and send flowers for this Mothers Day. Around the country, people gathered to reclaim Mother’s Day as it was originally envisioned in 1870: a day when mothers would gather to protect the lives of our human family.

» In Washington DC, Code Pink held a 24-hour vigil outside the White House. [Report from DC-IMC] [Photo (left) by Sam Utne / Spectral Q]

» In Virginia, supporters unite behind a nurse and mother who is fighting for the right to organize in her workplace.

» In Los Angeles, No New Jails delivered a huge Mother’s Day card to the Century Regional Jail in LA, demanding that 4,500 women be released from state prison, rather than moved to private jails. [Report from Indybay]

Nationally, the MomsRising Campaign is collecting signatures in support of family friendly policies outlined in their Motherhood Manifesto, while Colorado-based Mothers Acting Up has joined with local organizations to host a series of Mothers Day Parades and other events aimed at reclaiming Mother’s Day [Report from Nashville]

Mothers' Day became an official US holiday in 1914, following a decade of campaigning by the Anna Jarvis, who's mother (also named Anna) had been a lifelong activist for public health and community reconciliation in the wake of the Civil War. "Mother Jarvis" organized "Mothers' Work Days" in her Appalachian community, and pushed women on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line to join together to work for the greater good. Less than a decade after winning the holiday's recognition, Daughter-Anna became deeply embittered with its commercialization. She and her sister Ellsinore spent the remainder of their lives fighting to reclaim the holiday's radical roots.
