Judge Dismisses Three Charges Against Richard Watts

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.10.2006 08:09

On October 25th, Judge Charles Breyer dismissed three counts involving marijuana cultivation against Richard Watts, ruling that the U.S. Attorney's Office had violated the Speedy Trial Act. Judge Breyer, who sentenced Ed Rosenthal to one day in jail after the previous trial, openly challenged Assistant U.S. Attorney George Bevan several times about the federal government's justification for retrying Mr. Rosenthal and Mr. Watts. Attorneys have to submit several documents before a December 6th appearance about how to proceed with the case.

Nashville, TN: The Nashville Peace Coalition has called for a peace rally to be held on the evening of the scheduled statewide Senate debate in Nashville between Democratic Candidate Harold Ford Jr. and Republican Candidate Bob Corker at Vanderbilt University.

Peace Coalition members intend rally beginning at 6:30pm on the public sidewalk outside the main entrance to Ingram Hall. Green Party for US Senate candidate Chris Lugo will be in attendance at the rally although Lugo is not scheduled to participate in the debates.

Stolen election AGAIN? Help spark a general strike on Nov. 8

Portland, 26.10.2006 18:38

In two more weeks, it will happen again: vote-suppression tactics and uncounted "provisional ballots." Five to 11 point leads (i.e. in Georgia in '04) will vanish in a flurry of e-aberrations. If the House and Senate are up for grabs, the formula will simply be moderated. Instead of a four-seat lead for Bush's e-regime, it will go down to a modest two, plus an eleven-seat lead in the House.

It isn't a partisan issue. The US is being prevented from evolving.

Rosie Sizer's Full of Shit and Katu nailed her

Portland, 26.10.2006 18:38

I just saw Chief Sizer on Katu. She stated that the home addresses of her officers have been published on line, and implied that the lives of her officers have been threatened. Katu showed the Portland Indy Media Center as one of those web pages and they stated that it was UNTRUE. That the residential addresses of the officers have not been posted here. Katu questioned her on this and she had to clarify her statement saying that she thought it might escalate to that but that it hasn't happened yet. read the full article...Anti police posters "offensive"-Rosie the ripperSeems the chief of police is less than pleased that someone has been putting up posters decrying the killing of citizens by cops. Tough shit, Rosie!

Rosie Sizer is all vexed and annoyed that folks are getting sick and tired of her hired killers kicking our citizens to death. She seems to think that it is unreasonable to post pictures and descriptions of the coppers who kill on several poles around town. Rosie, we think it unreasonable for you to try to tell us that these fuckers are "devastated," when at least one of them was seen partying it up at lunch the other day, and none of them is man enough to admit that they went overboard when they kicked a sick man to death.

read the full article...Rosie Sizer and Hitting Close to HomeToday, Chief Sizer called it "offensive" that people have posted fliers across the city denouncing the officers who beat James Chasse to death on a downtown street. "Offensive." She says that she's "tired of the finger pointing," and that we need to "focus on the bigger picture."

Chief Sizer, at long last, we are most assuredly focused on the bigger picture. And we are not liking what we see there. It is a picture of rampant police violence and a system that fails to protect us from that violence. It's a picture of secret grand juries and foregone conclusions and corporate media apologists.

Earl Blumenauer Condemns Human Rights Abuse in Ethiopia, Urges Vote

Portland, 26.10.2006 17:38

Portland, Ore Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), a member of the House International Relations Subcommittee on Africa, Global Human Rights and International Operations, released the following statement on the human rights situation in Ethiopia:

I am particularly troubled by the release of the Commission of Inquiry's report into the killing of nearly 200 protesters by Ethiopian security forces last year, the continued detention of political prisoners, and the silencing of voices from civil society. The United States should stand on the side of the Ethiopian people and ensure that those responsible for these killings are brought to justice and that political differences are worked out through democratic processes, not repressive actions. When Congress reconvenes, I urge the Speaker of the House to schedule a vote on H.R.5680, the bipartisan Ethiopia Freedom, Democracy and Human Rights Advancement Act, which passed the House International Relations Committee by voice vote.

This deliberately echoed Jesus’s entrance into Jerusalem and the city’s ruling authorities took a dim view of Nayler’s stunt. They arrested him and tortured him, boring his tongue out with a branding iron. This morning will see a re-enactment of Nayler’s dramatic entrance featuring a procession up Corn Street, palm wielding can-can dancers and a troop of pike and musketmen from the Sealed Knot. Be your own personal Jesus, join in the hosannas and celebrate freedom from religious hierarchy. (Saturday 28 October, Meet at the Centre, 11.15am and onwwards...) Full Article.

Municipal Workers Demonstrate Against Metro

Portland, 26.10.2006 06:38

Tonight at the Oregon Convention Center, over fifty elected officials from the region gathered to start discussing a "new look at regional choices."

Outside, however, was a different scene. Nearly fifty municipal employees and their supporters gathered to confront the Metro Regional Council. The employees, mostly from the Oregon Zoo, wanted Metro to sit down and adequately negotiate a new union contract.

"One of the problems is that Metro never said they can't afford this," said Laborers' Local 483 field agent Rob Wheaton, "they dont want to afford this. Metro wants to have layoffs, cut staff, and maintain expansion."

No ens prendran els nostres drets sense lluitar

En els darrers mesos hem estat testimonis, novament, de com encara hi ha qui no accepta que les treballadores i els treballadors exigim els nostres drets fonamentals. Ja no en tenen prou amb despatxar als que lluiten, sinó que, com en el cas de Mercadona, arriben fins i tot a l'extrem d'enviar "matons" a donar pallises als qui donen la cara o,fins i tot, utilitzen els mercenaris a sou de l'estat per intentar espantar als que volen mostrar solidaritat i recolzament amb els seus companys.
Per contra aquells "sindicalistes", que treballen més a favor de l'empresa que no pas a favor dels treballadors, no només són recompensats econòmicament sinó que, a sobre, la justícia no considera que això sigui un delicte i, encara més, tenen la barra de confessar que és una pràctica habitual compensar amb regals aquells representants dels treballadors que "es portin bé".
Fins aquí hem arribat, no ens prendran els nostres drets així com així!

Fire at Alberta Co-op

Portland, 25.10.2006 13:08

Fire at the Alberta Co-op tonight - when we arrived just before 10, four engine companies were on scene and smoke was pouring out of the east wall in the front.

Firefighters chopped through some of the siding and Tyvek sheathing on the northeast side of the building and doused the fire with water, then ripped off more siding and sheathing to vent the smoke. Several firefighters climbed to the roof with a chain saw, ostensibly to vent more smoke and heat through the roof.

Speculation is that it was an electrical fire, and the Co-op is fortunate that it was detected during business hours so the fire apartment was alerted earlier. No estimates on damage or how long the co-op will be closed.
