Legalizing Marijuana - A New Republican Strategy?

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.08.2006 21:38

Independent journalist Mike Rhodes reports that he was recently asked to sign a petition to legalize marijuana. Once he had signed, the signature gatherer asked if it she could register him as a Republican. She told him that she would be paid extra for Republican registrations, but she also told him that she was paid hourly. Victor Salazar, the Fresno County Clerk, said that the process sounded deceptive, and referred Rhodes to the Secretary of State fraud investigation unit. Mike was unable to reach anyone at the fraud investigation unit by phone, despite repeated calls.



SF Board of Supes to Vote on &quot;Trailing Legislation&quot; to Dispensary Regulations

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.08.2006 20:39

The SF Board of Supervisors will vote on amending medical cannabis dispensary legislation on Tuesday, August 8that 2pm. San Francisco recently passed medical cannabis collective (or "dispensary") regulations. Since then, the first collective to undergo the permitting process has been denied at several hearings. Americans for Safe Access (ASA) fears this may be the start of a trend that would ultimately lead to the loss of dispensaries and, by extension, less safe access for the 12,000 patients who are the clients of the 30-40 dispensaries that operate in the city. The meeting will take in the Legislative Chamber on the Second Floor of SF City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place.



Grand Jury Resistance Project Calls for Support for Josh Wolf

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.08.2006 20:09

Independent journalist Josh Wolf was taken into custody on Tuesday, August 1st at a hearing in San Francisco. He was charged with civil contempt and has been jailed until further notice without being convicted of a crime, because he refused to testify or turn over unpublished video to a Federal Grand Jury that is investigating a July, 2005 anti-G8 demonstration. Josh is being held at FCI Dublin, and can receive mail and books there. A resolution is currently before the SF Board of Supervisors, aimed at resisting the federal government's intervention in the local investigation of the G-8 protest and expressing support for the California Shield Law. People are being asked to call the supervisors to encourage them to vote in favor of the resolution and to express their support for Josh.

Save Mike's Gulch in the Kalmiopsis Wildlerness! Get on the bus this Sunday!

Portland, 04.08.2006 13:38

The day has come. The purchaser of Mike's Gulch, the massive timber sale located in the South Kalmiopsis inventoried roadless area adjacent to the world-renowned Kalmiopsis Wildlerness, has filed his required 7-day notice to initiate logging. Logging will commence on Monday the 7th. The stakes are high. This would be the first inventoried roadless area sale to move forward since the popular Clinton-era roadless rule was enacted. We aren't going to sit silently and watch a slice of our American heritage be clearcut.

Clear you calendars, play hooky and join Back2theWall and the Cascadia Wildlands Project in a strong show of opposition to this reckless proposal and support of wild Siskiyou protection. We will be joining forces with many different conservation groups, community members and supporters at the Siskiyou Forest Supervisors office (where all the big decisions get made) at noon on Monday, August 7.

The bus named Cool will be leaving Portland on Sunday August 6th at 01:30 pm and we will be camping near Medford and then returning to Portland Monday evening following the protest and a carpool in Eugene leaves from Kinko's back parking lot (13th and Willamette St.) at 5 pm on Sunday. Come prepared and self-sufficient.

Call Joe Keating to reserve a place on the bus!
(503) 234-2613
or Steve at
(503) 772-3164

Oregon Governor Ted Kulongowski has called repeatedly for full protection of all 1.9 million acres of roadless Oregon forest. Ignored by the Bush Administration he is now suing the Administration in federal court. This and several other suits that might again protect Mike's Gulch are still pending. Nonetheless, logging is moving forward.

The Bush Administration claims that governors are allowed to petition for protection of roadless areas in their states. The petitions are not due until this Fall. The Administration promised interim protection for all roadless areas pending review of those petitions. The Administration has broken this promise at Mike's Gulch.

The Governor is holding an open hearing on roadless forest protection in Medford on August 16th. Please plan to attend this event as well. [ read more ]

Roadless Area Rule Violated by Siskiyou Forest Service in 2005

Without much fanfare or controversy the Siskiyou National Forest planned and allowed the clear-cut logging inside the North Kalmiopsis roadless area as part of the Berry salvage logging timber sale in the Biscuit burn in 2005. Thus the US Forest Service unilaterally decided to violate the Roadless Area Conservation Plan at least one year before Federal Courts were to decide the legality of such actions. I suppose Siskiyou National Forest personnel figured that they would get away with this because no one would notice, at least not until the trees were cut and hauled away. Well, I guess they were right. Also, I suppose Forest Service personnel told them selves, well even if we do get caught no one would get punished. In fact they would likely get a pat on the back, a bonus or even promotion for doing the Bush administration's and Oregon's timber baron's bidding. [ read more ]

SANTIAGUITO PRISONERS DENOUNCE ATTACK BY GUARDS

San Diego, 04.08.2006 11:08

This letter from political prisoners arrested at Atenco and held at Santiaguito prison tells of a recent attack on a compañero by a guard. It is followed by an urgent appeal for solidarity from compañeros who are maintaining an ongoing sit-in outside the prison.

WE DEMAND:
1. the immediate presence of human rights organizations and collectives that can enter the prison, press charges, and physically evaluate our compañero.
2. that the prison guards not leave until our compañero has identified the guard in question and pressed charges against him for violating the protective order, a judicial resolution.
3. the immediate resignation of the prison Warden and the Chief of Internal Security due to the fact that they have permitted the aggression and covered it up.
4. that the General Director of Prisons of the State of Mexico resolve this problem because it is beyond the scope of the Warden of this prison, given that he is protecting the guard and probably ordered the aggression.

Support Independent Journalist Josh Wolf!

Portland, 04.08.2006 00:38

Call and Write The SF Board of Supervisors!

On Tuesday August 1st Josh Wolf, an independent journalist working in
San Francisco, refused to testify or turn over unpublished video
out-takes to a Federal Grand Jury investigating a July, 2005, anti-G8
demonstration. He was charged with civil contempt and has been jailed
until further notice. He could be held for up to a year (the remainder
of the Grand Jury).

Josh was never convicted of a crime. He is being
held on civil contempt in order to coerce him to testify and turn over
his unpublished work product to a federal grand jury.

We encourage everyone to support Josh while he is being held at FCI
Dublin. If we keep on fighting there is a good chance we can win
Josh's release. There are many way in which you can help. Please refer
to Josh's support website for more information:

Hezzballah still completley intact and fighting

Portland, 03.08.2006 23:39

The Israelis got into Lebanon by air and had a 4-hour fight to get in a hospital. There were 16 Lebanese killed, 17 injured, and 5 captives taken. Hezballah surrounded the hospital after Israeli troops secured it; the US helicopters used by the Israeli's then airlifted the solders out of Lebanon. There needs to be a cease fire, I do not mean to state something so obvious, but the Israeli and Lebanese solders have both had minimal causalities while many civilians in Lebanon and Israel are getting killed. Just hours ago Hezballah fired 200 rockets into Israel and destroyed 5 tanks at the border. The reason the rest of the Lebanese army is not getting involved is that with Israel having such state of the art weapons from the US, the Lebanese Army without Hezballah would easily be destroyed. It's getting very difficult to get information out of Lebanon.



The Qana Massacre And The Risks Of Relying On Israeli Propaganda

Portland, 03.08.2006 23:39

This article discusses an example of American mainstream media bias towards Israel that occurred during a discussion of the Qana massacre on CNN's Paula Zahn program, and how she got burned when the Israeli Defense Force retracted its statement that Hezbollah had fired Katyusha from an area near the bombed apartment building, in spite of the fact that a day earlier it had disseminated a surveillance video that purported to show a Hezbollah battery firing rockets from this Qana neighborhood on the day the building was bombed.



Murray Bookchin, visionary social theorist, dies at 85

Portland, 03.08.2006 23:39

Murray Bookchin, the visionary and often iconoclastic social theorist and activist, died during the early morning of Sunday, July 30th in his home in Burlington, Vermont. During a prolific career of writing, teaching and political activism that spanned half a century, Bookchin forged a new anti-authoritarian outlook rooted in ecology, dialectical philosophy and left libertarianism.

During the 1950s and '60s, Bookchin built upon the legacies of utopian social philosophy and critical theory, challenging the primacy of Marxism on the left and linking contemporary ecological and urban crises to problems of capital and social hierarchy in general. Beginning in the mid-sixties, he pioneered a new political and philosophical synthesis—termed social ecology—that sought to reclaim local political power, by means of direct popular democracy, against the consolidation and increasing centralization of the nation state.



Photogs of Save the Klamath Salmon Rally

Portland, 03.08.2006 23:39

Native peoples and their supporters, about 150-200 strong, gathered at Holladay Park near Lloyd Center at 11:00 am and marched to the Portland Convention Center for a rally where International hydropower corporations are holding their bi-annual HydroVision Conference.

The Rally and March was energetic and punctuated with chants, both organized and spontaneous. People felt this issue strongly deep in their heart and cried out loudly for the removal of these dams, blocking not only the salmon, but a way of life and a relationship centuries, millenniums old.

The March was at least three blocks in length when marching down to the Convention Center, where Native speakers from the tribes affected by the dams demanded the dams be removed and asked supporters to contact their elected leaders with this message: BRING THE SALMON HOME!
