Status Hearing Report: Oregon Green Scare Case

Portland, 08.08.2006 23:39

Today [August 7] in federal court, Nathan Block and Joyanna Zacher were present for a status hearing on the upcoming trial. Also in attendance were Jeff Robinson and Amanda Lee for Daniel McGowan, as well as Marc Blackman for Jonathan Paul via conference call.

The first order of business was a continuance for the upcoming discovery hearing in which defendants' attorneys will ask for the court to order the release of surveillance evidence in discovery. The US Attorney's office has been dancing around the release of this surveillance, which could go back many years. What do they have to hide? Unwarranted wiretaps? Agents provacatuers?We'll see... That hearing was continued (postponed) till September 6th, 10;30 am.

Next, Amanda Lee requested that discovery released to defense last week be viewable by defendants without a lawyer present. A date was set, August 22nd* at 9:30 am, for a hearing on the issue.

Eugene, OR: Need for HUGE show of support for Jeff Hogg

Jeff Hogg is still resisting the federal grand jury. His next hearing is in Eugene Tuesday, Aug. 15, at 11:15 AM.

Jeff has been held in Grants Pass for over a month. While there, he has been denied his nursing textbooks and is, in his own words, "very bored." The hearing on the 15th will be the first time he has seen his friends and supporters since he was taken into custody on May 18(!) and our first chance to see him. We really need to PACK THE COURTROOM to show him how much we appreciate his principled stance against government repression and the misuse of the grand jury!

The hearing is for his Grumbles motion. This is a motion arguing that since Jeff will never cooperate with the grand jury the coercive value of imprisoning him is negated, continuing to hold him becomes punitive while he has not been found guilty of anything, and thus he must be released immediately.

Continuance Granted in Trial of Black Civil Rights Activist

Urbana-Champaign, 08.08.2006 22:10

A growing crowd of over 50 supporters sat behind Patrick Thompson and his family as he appeared for sentencing on Monday August 7. Thompson received a guilty verdict for home invasion and sexual abuse one month ago. Judge Clem granted a continuance set for October 2, 2006 and allowed Bob Kirchner to take over as Thompson's new attorney. Kirchner will be filing a motion for re-trial in this highly controversial case. In 2004, Black activists Patrick Thompson and Martell Miller were videotaping police behavior in Black neighborhoods in Champaign-Urbana. A day after bogus charges of felony eavesdropping were brought against Miller (charges that were later dropped), the equally baseless charges of home invasion and sexual abuse were brought against Thompson. This is a crime with no evidence, no eye-witnesses, and an investigating officer who admits he never visited the scene of the crime. The accuser, a white woman, has a history of similar allegations against Black men. She also has had warrants for her arrest and criminal charges of child endangerment mysteriously which were dropped throughout the term of this case. Thompson faces 6-30 years for a crime he did not commit.

Resistance to Roadless Logging Escalates as Protesters Blockade Bridge Leading to the Nation's First Roadless Area Timber Sale

Rogue Valley, 08.08.2006 13:39

Early this morning, protestors erected a daring road blockade to halt logging at the Mike's Gulch Timber Sale in the Siskiyou National Forest, site of the first ever incursion into an Inventoried Roadless Area since the passage of the federal Roadless Rule in 2001. At least one activist is suspended in a cantilever off the side of the Green Bridge above the Illinois River in a manner that prohibits traffic across the bridge without endangering the life of the person hanging from it.

This dramatic action follows years of lawsuits, rallies, public comment periods and national media attention involving tens of thousands of people speaking out against the logging of the Biscuit. Over 2 million people submitted comments to protect our nation's roadless areas before the Biscuit fire and over 20,000 citizens submitted public comments opposing the Biscuit logging when it was proposed, and almost 100 arrests have been made of people engaging in nonviolent civil disobedience protesting the massive logging project.



Fouad Kaady Murdered Have We Learned Anything-YET?

Portland, 08.08.2006 10:38

Eleven months ago, agents of the fascist state (Sandy Police Officer Bergin, Clackamas County Deputy Willard) took it upon themselves to terminate the life of a terribly injured and burned naked and unarmed man, simply to avoid getting his blood (or hanging skin) upon their clean uniforms.

Guess what, coppers? You have his blood on your hands, and upon your black souls. Neither will wash off. The details of this heinous crime have been well documented here, on Portland Indymedia, despite the attempts by the District Attorney to obfuscate the murder and to justify it after the fact by having the "grand" jury wave it's magic wand, declaring no foul. How many more times will we allow the flawed "grand" jury system act as our conscience an arbiter of truth?



Mayor Acknowledges Concerns of Tigard First

Portland, 08.08.2006 10:38

We've got their attention! Tigard Mayor Craig Dirksen addressed the possibility of Wal-Mart coming to Tigard in the August City Newsletter. While the Mayor is correct in stating that an application will be approved or denied based on the merits of the land use application, we are confident that sufficient concerns exist to deny a SuperCenter in the Tigard Triangle. Until the existing traffic problems are solved, the local roads cannot handle another big-box store in the area.

Tigard First is committed to helping residents stay involved in the growth of our City, and to encourage development that enhances our community. Revitalization of downtown is key to Tigard's livability and protecting that vision is a main goal of our group. Additionally, there is evidence that Wal-Mart contributes to crime, repeatedly violate environmental regulations, and damage local business. City officials should be concerned about locating a Wal-Mart just 1/4 mile from the heart of Tigard. There is also a significant wetland located on the site, one of the rapidly vanishing natural areas left in the City.



Rod Coronado Sentenced to 8 Months Today!

Portland, 08.08.2006 10:38

Rod recieved an eight month sentence and was taken into custody at about noon today. The judge felt that it was very important to preserve fear of/respect for the law, otherwise anarchy may prevail.

He also received 3 years probation and is not to post anything; print, internet, interview..., with any animal rights or environmental organization that is associated with violence, including but not limited to EF!, ALF & ELF. The government was very aggresive in their assertion that dismantling the lion trap and spreading feline urine were violent acts. The judge concurred.



Nation's First Roadless Logging Began Today; Unprecedented Action Ignites Protest

Portland, 08.08.2006 10:38

The Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest began logging today in a http://portland.roadless forest that was protected by the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule which protected 58 million acres of public forest from industrial logging, and road-building. The Bush administration is now logging roadless forests, despite massive public opposition and a pending court cases challenging the logging.

More than 100 citizens from across the country attended a rally in front of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest office in Medford today to protest the first logging of Roadless Areas. A dozen people with shirts reading "Roadless is Priceless" sat down in a road in front of the Forest Service office with potted trees. This resulted in twelve arrests, with charges still pending.

Roadless Area Logging Equals Broken Promise

Controversial logging began today in Mike's Gulch, a National Forest roadless area in Southern Oregon. It's the first roadless area logging in six years and part of a systematic rollback of environmental protections by the Bush administration.

Today, Silver Creek Timber Co. began logging in the South Kalmiopsis roadless area, located in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest in Southern Oregon. The logging is the first logging allowed in a National Forest roadless areas since the Bush administration replaced the popular 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule in 2005.

Kate Ritley a concerned citizen stated while being arrested that "There is nothing more precious than the wild and scenic forest of the Pacific Northwest. And today by the Bush administration cutting into Roadless Area's they are setting a national precedent that defies the will of the public and puts millions of acres across America at risk. I'm putting myself on the front line to take a stand against the Bush Administrations assault on America's forests."
