People's Co-op vs. &quot;sparkle&quot;: A legal update

Portland, 02.11.2006 11:38

As previously posted here ("Shitty treatment of former employee betrays change at People's Food Co-op"), People's Food Co-op is contesting my eligibility to collect unemployment, after firing me in April of this year. This is a very small story of little importance in the world, especially when compared to current events in Oaxaca, but I wanted to fill people in on the latest, since the Co-op is a well-known institution locally and some people round these parts have concern for its actions and my fate. Today, October 30, Judge Nicoletti presided over an administrative hearing on the matter and I was surprised by what happened.

Like many unemployment cases, the hearing was held over telephone conference call. In attendance: me -- Kollibri terre Sonnenblume, known as "sparkle" when I worked at the Co-op; four people from the Co-op: Lori Burge, Development Manager; Eli Rosenblatt, former Operations Manager; Jason Burt, co-manager and bookkeeper; and Ashley Albies, legal counsel; and Nancy Marshall, from the 'State of Oregon' Department of Employment. At issue in this hearing was not my employment eligibility; rather, this was a hearing to see if there would be such a hearing.

Maryland legalizes some forms of rape

Portland, 02.11.2006 11:38

A Maryland court has ruled a woman can't withdraw her consent to sex after initial penetration has occured.

In other words, once sex starts, you forfeit control over your own body. Changed your mind? Too bad. Feel coerced? Tough shit. Even if you say "stop," or "no," or "that hurts"—even if you yell and struggle and beg—your partner can do whatever he wants, as long as it's already in. His right to come trumps your right to control your own body (by "withdrawing consent" to sex) every time.

The complainant, an 18-year-old-girl, told the court that the defendent "got on top of me and he tried to put it in and it hurt. So I said stop and that's when he kept pushing it in and I was pushing his knees to get off me."

Pretty clear-cut, right?

How Salem and Keizer PD Dealt with my Credit Card Theft

Portland, 02.11.2006 11:38

My purse was stolen yesterday. A far to common occurrence for sure but what followed is really much worse. The details of the thief are not actually so important but what happened as the day went on today is almost unbelievable, at least it is to me.

Today I learned that the cops in Salem and Keizer, Oregon are much more like the doughnut eating stereotype than the police on CSI.

This morning around 9:30 I get a call from you credit card company letting me know that there was suspicious activity on my credit card. A charge at Office Depot, one at Walmart (I NEVER shop there). Also a hearty breakfast (I would not eat in this place) and a tank of gas (not from my usually station).

Urgent: Friend in Oaxaca in Danger

Portland, 02.11.2006 11:38

This part of Santa Lucia is enemy territory. It is near Barricade Three, the Príista attack of last Friday, and the site of Brad Will's murder. It's also where the CIPO house is located. When the Príistas first set up their barricades, some were directly in front of the CIPO house, one using materials that had been propped up against the outside wall. Now, less than a week after Brad Will's murder, some of the same Príistas have agreed to "dislodge" CIPO from the neighborhood. If history, recent and distant, teaches us anything, their method will be violence. It is important that they know that acts of violence will not go unseen, even in this small neighborhood that they control. Please contact some or all of those listed below; tell them that if CIPO is attacked, that the Mexican state is responsible. And please also keep this in mind as solidarity actions are planned and carried out.


APPO refusing to back down, teachers still on strike

I've been intending on sending this email for several days but finding a place to use internet has not been easy (nor has getting out of my house). As each hour goes by it seems there is a whole new update to add to my email, so for now, here is something. I hope to find the time and access to information a little quicker in the coming days. I just tried to open the email I wrote at home and it will not open, so, I will attempt to email it later today. I'll try to write up a brief summary for you now, just so you know a little about what's going on down here.

I am fine, living amidst an amazing time in the history of Oaxaca. There are moments when I just want to stay at home and watch from atop the hill next to my house as smoke billows up from the center from busses going up in smoke, and there are other moments when I want to be at the center of the action to find out with my own eyes what is going on. It's a tough call as every moment is so unpredictable, people may be being shot or there may be a peaceful march through the center. It's hard to know, the unknown can be excruciating.

Violence flares in Oaxaca, Indymedia reporter murdered

United Kingdom, 02.11.2006 09:08

"They might have the strength to impose their will, but we will never give them our consent". (Extract from the Radio APPO log)

Outrage spread around the world over the weekend following the killing of the documentary filmmaker and Indymedia video reporter Brad Will, from New York City at the hands of pro-government supporters who opened fire on unarmed protestors on the outskirts of Oaxaca, Mexico. Three others were also killed alongside him (making four dead in total); one member of Radio Universidad was injured.

On Sunday, more than 10,000 military swept the streets of Oaxaca. At their head were tanks with water cannons, laced with tear gas, followed by lines of 3,500 riot cops with batons. Behind them, a further 3,000 military police with automatic rifles. 5,000 army troops were waiting in the outskirts of the city while the paramilitaries continued attacking. Reports came in of snatch squads operating within the city centre, with police and military using helicopters and ambulances to grab protestors and injured people. Many arrests were reported, and at least two protestors were confirmed to have been killed in the clashes. See timeline of events. Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5.

This unprovoked aggression by the Mexican State against the pacific and unarmed people of Oaxaca is one of the largest in the recent history of México and Latin America. As a result, the Zapatista Army of National Lberation (EZLN) is calling for a day of action on November 1st and announces a nationwide strike on November 20th [Call]

Confrontations at the Barricades in Oaxaca Today

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.11.2006 02:39

November 1st: Concerns about the presence of the PFP (federal "preventive" police) in the area around Oaxaca's Radio Universidad have hightened, and it is anticipated that a raid and attempt to shut down the station could occur tonight. (English Translation from radio broadcast) The PFP reportedly has received a search warrant to go into the University. The hosts on the radio are calling for people to come out to the station to defend it physically, and to document the actions of the PFP and its supporters. Menacing flyers have been distributed by the pro-PRI people who have worked as paramilitaries against the recent social mobilizations in Oaxaca. One of the flyers calls for the arrests of several named protesters. At 6pm, the Bound Together Bookstore in San Francisco is holding a dedication ceremony for its "Anarchism in the Americas" mural. The mural, which now includes a depiction of Brad Will, will be dedicated in his honor.

Oaxaca Update

San Diego, 01.11.2006 23:38

The Mexican Federal Preventative Police (PFP) continues to occupy parts of Oaxaca City following an invasion on Sunday that Vincente Fox has claimed was triggered by the need to restore order following PRI paramilitary killings on Friday. Despite calls from federal legislators, including those of his own PRI, Ulises Ruiz Ortiz has refused to resign. The People of Oaxaca continue to resist, retaining barriers at some locations in the city and attempting to displace the PFP nonviolently.

The Zapatistas have called for solidarity blockades today, November 1, and a general strike on November 20 (espanol, english). Protests have taken place at over 20 Mexican embassies and consulates in the US.

The Oaxaca Solidarity Camp has continuously occupied the sidewalk outside the Mexican Consulate since Sunday evening, and the shifting camp population, drawn from autonomous collectives and groups in the region, has vowed to remain until the occupying forces are withdrawn from Oaxaca.

Over the past several years, Little Italy has been swept clear of real people through a combination of gentrification, cops and private security forces. It now provides a lifeless, sterile concrete, steel and glass environment for its largely atomized consuming zombie inhabitants.

The Camp has brought to this barren a feeling of warmth and community, with singing, chanting, pot banging, signs, candles and a Dia de los Muertos altar. The Consul has been visibly disturbed by the Camp's display of power from below. The sdpd has detained three protesters apparently for having the gall to occupy three-dimensional space, as no legal reason could be discerned by videotaping observers.

The Oaxaca Solidarity Camp continues, as does the electronic blockade of Mexican Consulates and Embassies in North America.

Bristol Indymedia Film Night: Mission Against Terror

Bristol, 01.11.2006 19:40

Monday 6th November 2006 @ Cube Cinema summary Monday 6th November 2006 @ Cube Cinema. Doors open 7.30pm, film starts at 8pm. £3/4 though nobody turned away for lack of funds. Organised in conjuction with the Bristol Cuba Solidarity group. MISSION AGAINST TERROR, a documentary about terrorism against Cuba and the case of the Cuban Five, written and directed by Bernie Dwyer and Roberto Ruiz Rebo. English/Spanish with subtitles. The film will be followed by a discussion led by a speaker from the Cuba Solidarity Campaign national executive. In June 1998 the Cuban authorities gave information to the FBI about the US based groups and the activities they planned against Cuba. However, instead of arresting the terrorists, the FBI arrested the five Cubans who had provided much of the information. They were subjected to a trial which US civil rights lawyer, Leonard Weinglass, calls a “violation” from start to finish, and were locked away for a total of three life sentences plus 68 years. Their trial took place in Miami, an environment entirely hostile to the accused – it is widely accepted that the anti-Castro Cuban-American community in Miami wields enormous political influence. There are very few cases that are political by their nature. This was one.

The city of Oaxaca is no longer filled with the smoke of burning buses and tear gas, but instead is burning from the inside as further polarization of the community has increased tensions amid a “peace” brought about by the forces of law and order. The city, paralyzed for the last two days, tried to return to normalcy as many business reopened. Overshadowing the this normalcy was the threat of more violence among the people due to a march convened in support of the Oaxacan state governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz

Tuesday, October 31, 2006- Penned in by police barricades across from the Governor George Pataki's office on 41st Street, poor people living with AIDS and advocates crowded this morning around a large bobbing and flapping Vampire-Pataki puppet, with small, paper Pataki-faced bats fluttering in their hands.

"Shame! Shame! Shame on Pataki," they chanted, demanding the New York Governor step in to reverse a state-mandated rent hike for PLWA living in supportive AIDS housing. [Read More at Housing Works]

Portland Action to Defend Oaxaca

Portland, 01.11.2006 11:38

I arrived at the Mexican Consulate in SW Portland at 4:00 and quickly found out that earlier in the day two people were arrested. A fairly large crowd gathered over the next 15 minutes or so, and during that time I interviewed Dan Denvir, of Portland South America Solidarity Committee (PSASC).

Dan gave a brief synopsis of the situation in Oaxaca Mexico, as well as some commentary on the conditions leading up to the present invasion by Federal troops. At least three have died, including an American reporter working with Indymedia New York.

Soon after this interview, Chris Ferlazo, also, I believe, with PCASC, described the lockdown earlier in the afternoon which led to the two arrests. Chris has recently been down to Oaxaca, and spoke briefly from his perspective about the events as they are unfolding in that area.


Oaxaca Report Back

About 70 activists braved the cold and whipping wind at the PDX Mexican Consulate this afternoon to support and stand in solidarity with the people of Oaxaca.

What began as a protest by striking teachers in Oaxaca continues months later as the crackdown on dissent claims the lives of those engaged in the struggle for justice.

An altar outside the Consulate began to grow as more people arrived at today's action. Homage was given to those who have lost their lives in the Oaxacan struggle as candles (that wouldn't stay lit!!), food, photos of Oaxacan street fighting, symbols of global solidairty and placards of the names of the deceased piled heavily at the altar.
