The Last Suffrage Movement Begins?

Portland, 09.11.2006 17:38

Before September 2006 few people may have heard of Eden Prarie, Minnesota, but the heroic actions of one young man in Eden Prarie may be remembered by future generations of Americans as the touchstone of the next civil rights movements. Which may very likely be the last civil rights movement in America. That is, the movement for the civil rights of young people.

Taking an action which he calls, "The biggest thing he's ever done in his life", a young man named Jesse L. Hunter had his credentials examined, showing his birthyear as 1989, and was told to proceed to the voting booth. A script which most of us take for granted. But in this case, perhaps for the first time in US history, an educated, morally sophisticated 17 year old man cast his ballot.

From November 7th to 12th takes place the Barcelona Meeting point, the greatest European real-state fair, according to the organizers. In there the main speculation promoters will meet, in one of the cities where housing matter is most heartrending and where a whole protest movement has broke out against this untenable problem, protest that is tried to be silenced in politic and media fields to keep the speculation bubble.

Oaxaca Solidarity March - Cop Strikes Wheelchair with Car

San Diego, 09.11.2006 01:38

This is a brief photographic timeline before and after Sgt. Larmuur intentionally hit me with his police vehicle [near the end of the Oaxaca Solidarity March on Sunday]. If you zoom in on the pictures you can see his car with and without a scratch before and after he hit me. Please notice in the picture where he is either about to or actually hitting me how close his car is to the people next to me. This is a clear example of the tactics the police employed throughout the entire march where the would speed up their vehicle to intimidate protestors.

November 7th Election Results

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.11.2006 18:10

On November 7th, voters around the US went to the polls. Nationally, the Democratic Party took control of the House of Representatives and San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi will be the first-ever woman speaker. Control of the Senate is not yet known. More on national results

In California, Republican governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was re-elected thanks in no small part to support from California Democratic Party leaders. Most state propositions were rejected by voters, as was notorious anti-environment Congressman Richard Pombo. More on state results

In Bay Area races, Chris Daly has retained his seat as San Francisco Supervisor, despite strong opposition from the business community and major newspapers. In Berkeley, Kriss Worthington retained his seat on the City Council.

Democrats Take Control of House of Representatives

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.11.2006 15:13

The Democractic Party has taken control of the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi is set to become the Speaker of The House. Control of the Senate is not yet known. Democracts control at least 47 seats, with Republicans controlling 49, and 1 seat going to Socialist Bernie Sanders and one to Joe Lieberman (who lost the Democratic Primary to antiwar candidate Ned Lamont). Two additional Senate seats are still up in the air but appear to be leaning toward wins by the Democrats. Among well known Republicans who lost their seats Tuesday were the notorious anti-gay politician Rick Santorum, and the notorious anti-environment politician Richard Pombo.

Swartzenegger Stays Governor Most Propositions Rejected

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.11.2006 15:13

Republican Arnold Swartzenegger was elected governor with 55.7% of the vote compared to 39.2% Phil Angelides' 39.2%. Green Party candidate Peter Camejo got 2.3% of the vote. Republican Steve Poizner beat Cruz Bustamante 50.5% to 38.9% in the race for Insurance Commissioner. Other state races went to the Democrats with John Garamendi winning the race for Lieutenant Governor and Jerry Brown set to become the next Attorney General. In other California races, Democrat Jerry McNerney beat Richard Pombo in the race for the 11th District US House seat. Pombo was a notorious enemy of the environment and chairman of the House Resources Committee.

Proposition 83 passed 70.5% % to 29.5%, widening the definition of sex offender and mandating life long monitoring for certain individuals.

Proposition 85 was defeated 52.1% to 47.9%. Prop 85 would have made it difficult for teenage girls to get abortions without the consent of a parent or guardian.

Proposition 86 was defeated 54.6% to 45.4% Prop 86 would have imposed an additional tax of $2.60 per cigarette pack to fund new and expanded health services, health insurance for children, and expand tobacco use prevention programs.

Proposition 87 was defeated 74.4.6% to 25.6%. Prop 87 would have established a Clean Alternative Energy Program to reduce California's oil and gasoline consumption through incentives for alternative energy, education, and training. More money was spent on both sides of the Prop 87 campaign than on any proposition in state history.

Proposition 90 was defeated 52.5% to 47.5%. Prop 90 would have made it more difficult for the government to confiscate property but also would have required compenstation for any legislation that could impact property values (such as lwas to protect the environment and worker's rights).

Democratic Sweep In New York (And Maybe U.S.)

NYC, 08.11.2006 13:08

Democrats swept all statewide races yesterday. Attorney Eliot Spitzer was elected governor, according to unofficial results, and Hillary Clinton won her bid for re-election to the U.S. Senate. (Click here for more complete election results as they come in.) Democrat Andrew Cuomo won the race for attorney general, and Comptroller Alan Hevesi won re-election despite the scandal over his use of a state employee as his wife’s chauffeur. It remains unclear, though, whether Hevesi will be able to serve out his four-year term. Spitzer’s running mate, State Senator David Paterson of Manhattan, will become the state’s first black lieutenant governor.

Operation Garden Plot

Portland, 08.11.2006 11:39

On October 17, 2006, Bush held a private ceremony in the Oval Office, where he signed the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007" (HR5122) (2), or "Public Law 109-364." This law will allow the U.S. government to declare "public emergencies" and station military troops across America, including the National Guard, to suppress "public disorder."

Section 1076 of the Authorization Act, "Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies" provides an additional $500+ billion to the Pentagon for its war on terror.

Section 333 of the Act, "Major Public Emergencies; Interference with State and Federal Law" says that the U.S. government may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of ("refuse" or "fail" in) maintaining public order, "in order to suppress, in any State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy."

Oaxaca: The Battle of the Day of the Dead

Portland, 08.11.2006 11:39

Dear Family and Friends,

I'm writing this Friday evening, November 3. We have been under occupation by Federal forces for several days now. The day they entered, Sunday, was ugly. The next day, three large marches converged on the Zocalo, and marchers circled around it, taunting the police and demonstrating that the police presence did not scare them or stop the movement. A plantón was set up outside the Santo Domingo Cathedral. All of the teachers and those who were sitting in the Zocalo are now sitting outside the church, three or four blocks from the Zocalo. One joke I heard was that while the PFP were busy taking the Zocalo, the APPO was busy taking Santo Domingo.

Not only have the teachers moved, but the vendors, unrelated to the movement, have also moved. Walking through today, I laughed and said, "If the PFP takes over the Zocalo, the people will just move the whole damn Zocalo somewhere else."

Oregonians mostly back the status quo

Portland, 08.11.2006 11:39

It looks like Oregonians will be sending the same people back to congress next year. I suppose that's somewhat convenient not requiring anyone to learn new names or contact information. And Kulongoski has a pretty sizable lead over any of his challengers.

On the upside it looks like Measures 40, 41, and 48 will be soundly defeated as will 42, 45 and, notably, 43. Measure 44, the only measure in which a wide number of progressive groups supported, looks like it will pass as will Measure 39, which had support across the traditionally marketed political divisions, marking at least 2 changes that a majority of voters wish to see.

Measure 47 Enacts Campaign Finance Reforms in Oregon

"The Measure 47 limits on contributions will no doubt be attacked in court by the opponents," said volunteer lawyer Dan Meek. This will give the Oregon Supreme Court an opportunity to revisit its 1997 decision, striking down the limits that were enacted by Measure 9 of 1994. In addition, all of the important campaign finance disclosure and reporting and anti-coercion provisions in Measure 47 will take effect and do not in any way depend upon enactment of Measure 46."

"Oregon voters have shown they know that the current political system is broken and corrupt," said supporter Ken Lewis (former President of the Port of Portland). "If necessary, I will ask the Legislature to refer an amendment to voters so that all of Measure 47 can take effect." [ read more ]

Local Musician Martyrs Himself for Peace

Chicago, 08.11.2006 03:08

Chicago Indymedia has learned that last Friday local music and art afficianado and peace advocate Malachi Ritscher burned himself to death on the side of the Kennedy Expressway near downtown Chicago during the morning rush hour. Near Malachi's remains, police found a camcorder with videotape inside and a homemade sign that read "Thou Shalt Not Kill."

Besides the note and videotape at the scene, Malachi also left a longer letter explaining his actions and his motivations. "What is one more life thrown away in this sad and useless national tragedy?" he wrote. "If one death can atone for anything, in any small way, to say to the world: I apologize for what we have done to you, I am ashamed for the mayhem and turmoil caused by my country."

Malachi was among more than seven hundred peace protesters who were illegally arrested on March 20, 2003, when thousands turned out to protest the beginning of the U.S. war on Iraq. His death, to date has received very little news coverage — and outlets that did report his death treated it as a simple suicide and the cause for slower-than-usual traffic that morning. The contents of the videotape he left have not been made public.

According to a message on the chi-improv listserve, his friends plan to hold an impromptu memorial service for him tonight at 11PM near the site of his immolation, at the Millenium Flame statue, which is near the Ohio St. exit of southbound Kennedy Expressway. Read more here, here and here.

ESA exemption proposed for Klamath irrigators

Rogue Valley, 08.11.2006 00:42

California Fish & Game (CDFG) proposes giving agricultural operations in the Shasta and Scott Sub-basin of the Klamath River a virtual exemption from the California Endangered Species Act (C-ESA). The irrigators dewater the Scott and Shasta and, in drought years, Coho salmon, listed as “threatened” under the C-ESA, are among the fish killed. The proposed permit will not lead to Coho Recovery; it will allow dewatering to continue and put irrigators in charge of monitoring their own C-ESA compliance and reporting violations.
