"Crisis Pregnancy Centers" (CPCs) claim to offer help for women who face unplanned pregnancies, but they are in fact run by anti-abortion organizations that want to prevent women from obtaining abortions. These fake clinics use deceptive methods to get women in the door and then bombard them with misleading information. To address this problem, Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) has introduced the Stop Deceptive Advertising for Women's Services Act (H.R. 5052) which would enforce truth-in-advertising standards for reproductive centers. Women who have gone into CPCs have reported being harassed, intimidated, and made to feel guilty for considering abortion.
Refugee Day: Kill Howard's offshore migration bill
Thursday, June 22nd is the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board hearing on the issue of agriculture waivers. The Regional Water Board will be voting on extending a waiver for irrigated agriculture which would allow 8 million acres of farmland to keep polluting the waters with pesticides and fertilizers without any accountability. In spite of protests, in 2003, the Board issued waivers for waste discharges from irrigated farm land. That waiver, which was adopted under pressure from powerful San Joaquin Valley agribusiness interests, provided for the establishment of "voluntary coalitions" comprised of farmers to establish voluntary programs to address massive pollution of Central Valley waterways. People will gather by 8:30am on the day of the meeting for press conferences and protests.

The second annual DC Juneteenth Celebration and Music Festival took place on Sunday June 18th at the African American Civil War Memorial at 10th and U Streets, N.W. Juneteenth is the day when Union troops reached Galveston, Texas to establish the Emancipation Proclamation as law in Texas, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed on January 1, 1863, when by law slaves in the confederate states were freed.
Jeff's lawyer filed a motion against the original contempt hearing being illegally closed to the public by Judge Hogan on May 18th. Judge Hogan was apparently unaware of that and seems to be being educated on this grand jury issue as we go along. As we suspected, today in court, even though the lawyer pleaded to have Jeff released, he simply had the contempt hearing in that moment and sent him back to jail for not answering questions. There is another motion to be filed and generally the paperwork of the courts takes about 30 days to get to the actual day of court. Hopefully we will be successful in July, but if not, then we will wait until September 30th. Thank you again for all the support and letters to Jeff. They really keep him going. I really cannot express my gratitude enough for everyone's thoughts and love.

Save Passamaquoddy Bay Alliance to meet with state officials Thursday
The air was thick with irony this week. While we spend our Saturdays blowing soap bubbles, hula hooping, pogo sticking, dancing to 80's music, and eating cookies in front of Schumacher Furs, Gregg Schumacher and his friends continue to refer to us as "terrorists" - look out Al Qaeda, if dancing to disco music is now considered a terrorist activity, we're all-stars. This week was especially rich as one of Schumacher's supporters knocked down a small female protester and was then led off in handcuffs. The real bullies reveal themselves.
On Monday 19th June Republican Prisoners Of War (POW's) began a protest action in Maghaberry, this is the first in a series of protests planned by Republican POW's in the gaol. POW's are making clear that they will not accept the sub standard conditions on the segregated wing, they will not be criminalised nor will they be intimidated or coerced by the petty restrictions being imposed by prison screws to make the day to day life in the gaol for POW's more difficult.

The Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO) Pastors for Peace Caravan has been collecting goods in Portland in solidarity with our Cuban friends. The caravan leaves Portland tomorrow for the Mexican border and then on to Cuba. Pastors for Peace has been collecting humanitarian supplies for the Cuban people for the past 17 years and delivering them to Cuba despite the US Government's embargo. The caravan starts in 13 different US locations then winds it's way through the US gather support and supplies while educating the American people about the plight of Cuba, American policy and the Cuban Five prisoners. I believe the van/bus is leaving the church at 8am tomorrow making it's way to Mexico and ultimately on to Cuba. Last year they took 125 tons of supplies to Cuba, however all electronics were seized by Homeland Security at the border. They have been fighting to get these computers back for the past year and just had them returned 1 month ago after threatening litigation. Many of the seized computers came from Portland's own Free Geek.
