La resistencia Oaxaqueñ@ frente a la represion

San Francisco Bay Area, 09.09.2006 01:38

El primero de Septiembre de 2006, Oaxaca's Quinto MegaMarcha empezó en la comunidad de San Felipe y terminó en el zócalo en el centro de la Ciudad de Oaxaca. Cientos de millares de personas forraron las calles y marcharon para demandar la salida inmediata de Ulises Ruiz Ortiz (URO), la liberación de presos politicos, la cancelación de 70 autorizaciones de arresto del gobierno para personas implicadas en Asamblea Popular del Pueblo de Oaxaca (APPO), un movimiento sin lideres, y el deseo para un gobierno popular.

San Felipe era el pueblo de José Jiménez Colmenares, un mecanico casado con una maestra, que era el disparo en la calle al tomar parte en una marcha organizó por APPO en el 10 de Agosto. Lee mas y ver fotos con slideshow

Judge Rejects Claim of National Security: Will Not Dismiss Oregon Wiretapping Case

Portland, 08.09.2006 21:38

A judge in Oregon District Court issued a decision yesterday rejecting the Bush Administration's claims of danger to national security and allowing a case challenging the legality of the Administration's warrantless wiretapping to proceed.

In February of 2006, National Lawyers Guild members Steven Goldberg, Zaha Hassan, Thomas Nelson, Ashlee Albies, and Lisa Jaskol, and California attorney Jon Eisenberg brought suit in Oregon District Court challenging the legality of the Bush Administration's warrantless wiretapping program on behalf of Plaintiffs Al-Haramain Inc. and two of its attorneys, Wendell Belew and Asim Ghafoor. Plaintiffs filed along with the complaint a sealed document which they allege proves they were subject to this program. A hearing was held on August 28th, 2006 on the government's attempt to dismiss the case based on state secrets grounds and to prevent Plaintiffs from having access to the document.


Warrentless Wiretapping - Whose Freedom?

Indeed, Judge King tiptoed around government arguments that a secret is something that almost everyone can know but are legally obliged to forget and not talk about. What? A gag order for the whole country? He was uncomfortable even with the idea of stipulating facts most people already know. He doesn't want to step on the toes of the Executive branch and expressed a belief that he had no power to do so. Plaintiffs' attorneys reminded him that the separation of the 3 branches of government was meant to create immunity from the other branches allowing them the independence to check and balance each other...


Potential NSA wiretaps in Oregon Green Scare case?

Portland, 08.09.2006 21:38

Prosecutors in the Oregon 'Green Scare' case are stalling in their response to motions filed by defense counsel regarding whether there are potential NSA or FISA wiretaps used in the states' prosecution of defendants Daniel McGowan, Jonathan Paul, Nathan Block and Joyanna Zacher. A hearing before the judge is set for October 31st but the question remains, what is the prosecution hiding and what does the government fear is in those potential wiretaps?

This is what is wrong with the corporate media

Portland, 07.09.2006 23:38

"Kaady, a suspect in three hit-and-run crashes on the day of his death, was bloody, naked, combative and unfazed by 50,000 volts from a stun gun, when he leapt atop a patrol car and threatened to kill Willard, police said. A Clackamas County grand jury later cleared both officers of wrongdoing."

This is how the corporate media apologists describe the killing. And this is all most people know. This is why it is so hard to find justice. Because these things are framed by the corporate police state, and they are skillfully spun in a manner that makes people not care. The story is everything, and if they can control the story, then they can control the outcome. That is why it is up to us to reclaim our voices and tell the real stories.

In fact, the story of the killing of Fouad Kaady is very different than the strangely dispassionate words in this blurp would suggest. For those who have forgotten, here is what really happened.

No Deportations to Iraq

United Kingdom, 07.09.2006 23:09

32 Iraqi asylum seekers, who had been incarcerated in different detention centres, were deported to Arbil, northern Iraq, on 5 September, 2006, on a specially chartered flight from the RAF Brize Norton military base in Oxfordshire. There was a demonstration at the Home Office in London, called by the Coalition to Stop Deportations to Iraq and the International Federation of Iraqi Refugees, but that did not apparently stop the process, and neither did the warnings from international organisations [1 | 2 | 3] or the legal challenges.

The first forced deportation of Iraqi Kurds from the UK took place on 19 November, 2005. 15 men were taken to an airport at night, handcuffed, beaten and forced onto a military plane headed for Arbil through Cyprus. The move then sparked a lot of anger and protest [1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5], and the deportation of Iraqis was halted for a while until resumed this month. Tens of Iraqi Kurds are believed to be interned in UK detention centres, while thousands more have been served notice that they will be 'removed' from the UK [latest report].

Local Bans on GE Crops Stand as CA Senate Fails to Vote on SB1056

San Francisco Bay Area, 07.09.2006 22:39

Californians for GE-Free Agriculture reports that SB1056, the bill that would have preempted local restrictions on genetically engineered organisms, failed to make it through the California Senate, and has died with the close of the legislative year. This is seen as a major victory. The Monsanto-backed bill was introduced last year after the passage of four county and two city bans on GE crops.

Seattle KorUS FTA Protests 1st Day

Portland, 07.09.2006 21:38

At the bus stop, we pull the Seattle Times business section out of the trash. KorUS FTA, The Korean US Free Trade Agreement, is billed as the biggist and most important FTA since NAFTA, which considering the size of the Korean economy, is a pretty accurate analysis. The article goes on to say that the meetings, scheduled to take place in Seattle at the very last minute so as to not alert potential protestors, are the first attempt at FTA talks in Seattle since police and protestors turned the city into a "war zone" in 1999.

Arena Tax: &quot;A Bad Deal for Sacramento&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 07.09.2006 19:39

Day 14: &quot;Locked out but won't shut up&quot;

Aotearoa, 07.09.2006 12:39

The strike that turned into a lock out across the country of 500 supermarket distribution workers in Auckland, Palmerston North and Christchurch is now two weeks old as Australasia's biggest retailer attempts to smash the NDU, the EPMU and their claims for a national collective agreement. Woolworths chief executive Roger Corbett gets $2.5 million a year and still the company refuses to give its workers pay parity across the country. Class warfare has broken out across Aotearoa and people need to start taking sides. Join picketlines, sabotage Progressives supermarkets, jam their advertisments and hassle their customers and automatically donate $20 by ringing 0900 LOCK OUT. In Auckland a march and music will take place on Saturday the 9th of September beginning in Mangere Town Center at 12noon. Confirmed acts are reggae legend Tingi Ness (Unity Pacific), local reggae band "Three Doors Down" and Maori R'n'B group "Kotuku." [Details] In Christchurch a rally and march on Friday the 8th of September will begin at the Trade Union Centre carpark at 11:30am. [Details] Recent actions have included an informational picket in Dunedin, flying pickets in Wellington, a blockade in Lower Hutt that resulted in three arrests and flying pickets across Auckland every day as unionists and activists attempt to contain the work of scabs operating out of mini-distrbution centres in some supermarket carparks.

Ricky Cousing--another courageous soldier speaks out and needs our support

Portland, 07.09.2006 10:08

My name is Ricky Clousing. I am a Sergeant in the United States Army and one of the many soldiers who are beginning to speak out about the appalling conditions of occupation in Iraq. I am writing to you today to tell you my story and ask for your support.

I joined the army soon after the September 11th attacks and in November of 2004 I deployed to Iraq. While there I was an interrogator attached to tactical infantry units during daily patrol operations. In the course of my work, I witnessed abuses of power that ranged from daily physical and psychological harassment to baseless incarceration of innocent civilians, including children. I spoke out about what I saw but was told to stay quiet.

After I returned from Iraq, I struggled with my objections concerning what I had seen and experienced in Iraq. Ultimately, I decided that staying in the military was a contradiction to my personal, moral and spiritual beliefs. I left the military without official authorization in June of 2005. In the following months I deeply considered my moral obligation to speak publicly about what I saw while in Iraq. After holding a press conference I returned to military custody on Friday, August 11th, 2006. On August 31st 2006, I was charged with desertion, which carries a maximum sentence of two years in jail.

Putting it in Writing: Immigrants Rights Coalition Sends Strong Message to Congress

Portland, 07.09.2006 10:08

At Sunday's Labor Day protest for immigrants rights, participants signed a long banner that will be mailed to the US Congress Conference Committee along with a position statement on the current state of legislative proceedings.

Excerpt: "We write to strongly encourage you to reject restrictionist and narrow, enforcement-only and enforcement-first proposals, including both H.R. 4437 and S. 2611... the rush to reach a bipartisan accord on immigration legislation has led to a compromise that would create deep divisions within the immigrant community, leave millions of undocumented immigrants in the shadows of our country, and further erode the rights of working people in the US - both immigrant and non-immigrant alike."


Joe Keating marches in solidarity with immigrants

Joe Keating (the Pacific Green Party candidate for governor) marched with protestors at the September 3 rally sponsored by VOZ Workers' Rights Education Project, Portland Jobs with Justice, PCUN farm workers' union and others brought out 1,500. Protesters chanted "Queremos amnestia, ahora, ahora!" (We want amnesty, now, now!) and "The workers united, will never be defeated."

Portland's rally, which also drew critics of the Iraq war and President Bush, appeared to attract about 500 participants to Shemanski Fountain in the South Park Blocks. No official estimate of crowd turnout was issued by the sponsoring group, the Portland Immigrant Rights Coalition.


Breaking News: Kaady Family to Seek Justice Through the Courts

Portland, 07.09.2006 10:08

This Friday, it will be one year since the slaying of Fouad Kaady by the police. It will be just over 11 months since his killers were let off the hook during a secret and stacked grand jury proceeding. It will be nearly 8 months since the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office released a gushing report exhonerating the killers and smearing the name of the victim. Yes, it's been a long, hard road for the Kaady family this past year. And it's high time for justice. Maybe, just maybe, the time has finally come.

Samira Kaady reports today that her family, with the help of the Spence Law Firm, has just filed a lawsuit to demand that justice finally be served. May it be served on a platter of policy changes, melted down tasers, and badges that must be turned in. Because something must change, and someone must pay. Someone must be made to cry for redemption after what they did to Fouad Kaady. Someone must be held responsible for the torturing to death of an injured, innocent young man. Someone must pay for the viscious words of police state propaganda that poured forth from the lips of the corporate media shills to skewer the very name of the victim of this crime, as if his blood and his heart were not enough. Someone must remind the officers and the gentlemen of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and the Sandy police force that they are not immune to the sword of justice though they may hide behind their badges.


Fouad Kaady Memorial Service

Fouad's family has invited anyone who would like to share a few moments to remember Fouad, to a memorial service, on Sunday, September 10, at 11:00 a.m., at the St George Antiochian Orthodox Church, 2101 SE 162nd, Portland, Oregon.

Fouad, you will remember, was the young man who was murdered by a "peace" officer (Bergin) from Sandy, and a Clackamas County Deputy (Willard), on September 8, 2005. Many details of this case have been reported on this site in the past, and links to those stories will follow, as will details of the law suit, which was filed by his family and the Spence Law Firm yesterday. Those who cannot attend the memorial should check this site often, for the release date of a film which is being produced by Videoistas from Portland Indymedia. Stay tuned, and always remember what the police are capable of, in the name of protecting our peace.
