Portland Can't Wait for July 4th Action!

Announcing the Portland Troops Home Fast kickoff! Code Pink is calling for a national hunger strike against the Iraq occupation. Beginning July 4th, people will be fasting in front of the White House and at congressional offices, at recruiting stations and churches, at festivals and parades around the country. This open-ended hunger strike aims to galvanize public attention, invigorate the peace movement, build pressure on elected officials, and get our troops back home FAST! The goal is to get Congresspersons to sign onto the most forward-thinking bill to bring our troops home, which has been introduced in both the Senate and the House: Senate Congressional Resolution 93 and House Congressional Resolution 348. These bills demand no permanent bases in Iraq, no US control of the flow of Iraqi oil, and the troops out of Iraq by the end of the year.

why a hunger strike?

Cops Arrest Seven Peace Activists at Taste of Chicago

Chicago, 02.07.2006 23:09

Seven members of local peace projects, including Code Pink Chicago, the Chicago Coalition Against War and Racism, the Chicago Coalition Opposed to the Militarization of Youth, and the Latino counter-recruitment project CAMI – were arrested on Sunday, July 2 for handing out counter-recruitment flyers and talking to the public near a military recruiters’ booth at the Taste of Chicago.

The arrests occurred at around 2:30 PM, and came in the wake of days of harassment of peace activists by the CPD at the Taste, as well as similar kinds of harassment and several incidents of physical aggression by cops against antiwar activists at the Blues Fest in June. Full Story

Billboards of Bristol: 'Torn Down' and 'Subverted'

Bristol, 02.07.2006 19:08

summary Bristol continues to see a spate of both the 'subversion' of billboards - whereby the orginal message is altered to send out a radical new one - as well as their outright 'vandalism' in order to, apparently, remove this controversial form of advertising from our communities altogether. What are your views on these tactics and techniques? You can add to the debate by adding your comments to the various relevant articles linked to below...Tim Burton writes (in relation to 'tearing down' the billboards): Bristol residents have had enough… we are tearing down billboards! We are Bristol residents, sick of advertising hoardings making a mess of our streets, cluttering our skylines and blocking our views. Bristol residents have complained for years about these billboards, erected against our wishes but the Council won’t listen. We are taking non-violent direct action to tear down and remove unwanted billboards from our communities... As the Council continues to allow companies to erect billboards it continues to clamp down on “anti-social vandals” who spray “graffiti”. However often graffiti is the only option, the only way alienated individuals can express themselves in our society. What is commonly called “art” is in reality elitist, confined to sterile galleries which only display work from “artists” privileged enough to go through art school, only to be viewed by those who can afford it. The real vandals are the advertisers who erected these billboards without our permission, often without even planning permission.

Mexico's Continuing Revolution: A Dispatch

San Diego, 02.07.2006 18:38

Whether the election is stolen or not, the Mexican people and its continuing revolution will be strengthened today.

Today, Mexicans will move to the left. They have no choice. The forces of greed and privilege continue to exploit workers, destroy the rural economy (under U.S. dominated trade laws), and stands poised to hand over to foreign corporate control all of Mexico's natural resources - oil, gas, water, and, even, the land itself.

The big question for this evening, will be whether the Mexican power structure will allow democracy to work; whether they will turn over the Presidency to Andres Manuel Lopez Obredor.

Rob Los Ricos Greets Supporters After Seven Years Behind Bars

Portland, 02.07.2006 14:38

On Saturday, Rob "Los Ricos" Thaxton spoke face to face with his supporters for the first time since being released from Oregon State Penitentiary on Thursday, June 29.

Rob greeted those gathered at Portland's Laughing Horse Books with individual hellos and handshakes, stating repeatedly how overwhelmed and happy he felt to be released. He spent most of the evening taking questions from supporters, who mostly wanted to hear about his day-to-day life behind bars. Rob said he spent most of his time writing letters. "It helped me remember who I was," he said. "It saved my life."

Another SOCPA travesty

United Kingdom, 02.07.2006 13:08

When is a demonstration not a demonstration? That's a question that SOCPA followers have been asking for almost a year now, with ever more people coming before the judge as Serious Criminals. Since Brian Haw's protest was trashed early in the morning of 23rd May by 50 police there have been many reports of challenges to the Act's restriction on protest and its uneven enforcement by the police.

Starting with a guilty verdict for one protester there was a report on Brian's diminished display. A 'forgotten' protester in Parliament Square was removed to Colnbrook and faces deportation. There was a 'day of seriously disorganised police farce' then a violent SOCPA arrest outside Downing street followed by a successful challenge to SOCPA. Is carrying a 'Vanity Fair' article 'politically motivated' material which is likely to get you arrested? Finally, the illegal protest by the Institute of Directors and 'One SOCPA for them, another SOCPA for us'.

High Court has Ruled: Bush is a War Criminal

Portland, 02.07.2006 10:40

The whole top administration, from Commander in Chief George W. Bush on down, is guilty of war crimes. The punishment for committing war crimes ranges from a lengthy jail sentence to, in the event the crimes in question caused the death of any prisoners being held, to death. And there have been many deaths among those who have been held and tortured on orders of the administration--most recently the three suicides at Guantanamo, which included on man who had only three days earlier been targeted for release (but who never learned this because government's secrecy and tight security prevented his attorneys at the Center for Constitutional Rights from getting the news to him).

HOPE Health Care initiative and my petitioning experience

Portland, 02.07.2006 10:40

I was out less than an hour and collected 12 signatures from my neighbors. I got to meet some cool folks who recently moved in and talked to a few neighbors about starting a tool sharing group. The response was extremely positive and I plan to at least 38 more by Monday. That would be 50 signatures to help the cause.

Portland, 02.07.2006 10:40

From Viet Nam veterans to elders, all speak from their heart about the senselessness and tragedy of this war. One woman has a son now stationed in Iraq; another young man says that Watada is standing up for the Constitution in his refusal to report to fight an illegal war; an elderly woman speaks of the Trials at Nuremberg, which ruled that "following orders" does not excuse one from the guilt of his actions; another women questions why a person can't agree with a policy at first, but then change their minds later when they are in possession of the facts.

Do you need help with your nicotine addiction?

Portland, 02.07.2006 09:40

I used to run a company that taught 1000's of Portlanders to stop smoking using a combination of powerful techniques based on rational emotive therapy and cognitive restructuring. I myself used this program 15 years ago to deal with my own 20-year addiction to nicotine. The program used to be offered through every major medical center here in Portland and was known by the names BreatheFree and/or ASPIRE.

Unfortunately we closed in 1998 when the government allowed the pharmaceutical companies to sell nicotine patches and gum as a treatment for nicotine addiction. This makes about as much sense as treating heroin addiction with heroin gum or patches.

NW Heat Wave: Heat Survival Tips

Portland, 02.07.2006 09:40

Every year people die from heat. Summer heat can be a killer if you do not understand the ways of the sun. There are things you should know about heat and health. For instance, waiting until you are thirsty is not a way to gauge dehydration. Waiting until your skin is pink is not a way to gauge whether you are getting sunburned. It is considerably hotter (up to 30 degrees hotter) at ground level, than if you are sitting up a foot off the ground... [ read more ]

NW Heat Wave: Sunburn Remedies

As a fair-skinned, red-headed kid growing up in Los Angeles and Baja, sunburn was a regular part of my childhood. Chemical sprays were not effective and mainstream America was ignorant of aloe's properties. Once back in L.A., after a week in San Felipe, I had bright red burning skin and a sun blister on my eye which made it hard to close. A family friend suggested I smear pickle juice on my skin and hold a pickle on the blister. Desperate, I did it. Immediately, my skin stopped stinging and the blister went down. I stank but I was no longer hurting. [ read more ]

Portland Mercury contributing to Patriarchal bullshit (Again)

Portland, 02.07.2006 09:40

The cover is marking the 4th of July (Strike One against the paper for celebrating imperial jingoism) and features a young man and a young woman in RedWhite&Blue swimming suits posed so that it looks like the man is -- to use street parlance -- about to mount her doggie-style. (Please read that entire last clause in 'scare quotes'.) This is Strike Two, of course.

I've got nothing against any particular sexual position that is enjoyed between consenting adults. Hell, I enjoy as many as I can. However, the graphical representation of such in our society has an undeniably deleterious effect on women. AND men, actually, as Patriarchy makes life miserable for everyone, but the near constant degradation of women in the media, on the street, through laws, and in schools and at jobs -- not a complete list -- is a syndrome that demands attention of its own.

Emergency Protest Against Assault On Palestinians

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.07.2006 07:08

On Monday July 3rd there will be an emergency protest in San Francisco against the U.S.-Israeli assault on Palestinians. The protest will be at 4:30 PM in front of the Israeli Consulate at 456 Montgomery St.

U.S.-supplied F-16 fighter-bombers have destroyed the main power station in Gaza and destroyed bridges on the only major roads linking the northern and southern sections of the region. Round-the-clock Israeli artillery shelling is taking place. Most of the people of Gaza are now without water and electricit. Israel has also arrested a third of the members of the Palestinian Authority governing body.

San Diego Critical Mass - June Interviews

San Diego, 02.07.2006 00:38

The last friday of every month, cyclists from over 400 cities worldwide participate in Critical Mass, a group bicycle ride. To many riders, Critical Mass is a leaderless celebration of cycling and other responsible forms of transportation. To others, it is a way to reclaim the streets for social interaction and fun, rather than being locked away and isolated in cars. To still others, Critical Mass is a way to feel safe as a cyclist on the streets by riding together in a group. And for some, Critical Mass is a protest against the car culture that is polluting the air, causing global warming and consuming natural resources that formed over millions of years in little more than a century.

The past few months of San Diego Critical Mass have seen disagreements about its goals and how to interact with drivers and pedestrians. As with almost any endeavor in our macho, competitive culture, only the loudest, most privileged voices tend to be heard. In an attempt to provide an outlet for a broader spectrum of opinion, I talked to 13 riders prior to June Critical Mass.

This is part of a National Day of Action that will feature events in over 250 locations around the country. As families across the country prepare to travel for July 4, rising gas prices are a big concern. Big Oil companies have spent millions in campaign contributions to get Republicans to hand over billions in taxpayer subsidies. Republicans have consistently rejected Democratic attempts to move toward energy independence and a national clean energy policy – instead voting to keep America dependent on oil and subsidize Big Oil at a time of record profits. “Gas prices are soaring out of control, and that affects my family’s budget in a big way,” said [LOCAL RESIDENT]. “One big reason we haven’t moved toward energy independence is that Republicans in Congress are in the pockets of Big Oil – taking millions in campaign contributions, then giving billions in favors. It’s time for change in Congress.” Since 1990, Big Oil has given more than $190 million to members of Congress – 75% of which ($142,635,314) has gone to Republicans. Republicans have then consistently done the bidding of Big Oil, rejecting Democratic proposals for clean energy.

Press Conference at 2:00pm
O n July 5th, the new SCPD policy on police spying goes into effect. Under the new rules, even if you are engaged in constitutionally protected first amendment activities, Santa Cruz police will still be able to videotape you inside or outside of your home, audio record you, listen to your phone calls, look at the mail you are receiving, read your email, make notes about your organization, tail you, monitor your website, subscribe to your email lists, and examine your membership lists.

The city has fallen down on its promise to pass a policy providing protections for our first amendment rights. They resisted. They were dragged kicking and screaming to the issue. They stonewalled. They sidelined the ACLU. They lied. Then they told us they'd done their job and that everything was okay.

Working within the system is not working.

Nothing less than our First Amendment rights to free expression and right to privacy are at risk here. We will never accept police spying on our political and community groups and activities. Read more
