Chained dogs

Portland, 31.12.2006 06:38

A friend of mine lives with her mother and step father in a condo near Scott park. About three months ago her neighbors got a young, maybe six month old pit bull- Labrador mix. Both breeds I have known to be friendly, but I'm well aware that the owners shape a dog, like parents shape their children. These people had no contact with the puppy, they put it in a small dog run, meant for a much smaller breed. Because it had food and water animal control paid no attention to the it, despite the fact that it lived in its own waste and never got out of the cage. After a month it began to cry. It cried 24/7 and after two complaints and threats to report the noise the people tied a wire around the puppies mouth to keep it from crying. We saw this as another opportunity to call the spca or Animal control, but once again they came out and warned them, the owners changed to rope instead,but they never came out to check on the dog again. After two months it seemed that the dog, just a puppy was showing signs of being traumatized.



Pit bulls and kittens

Portland, 31.12.2006 06:38

This is just a note of thanks to the Neanderthal who dropped off yet another kitten in the wooded ravine by my house yesterday, one of the coldest days of the year.

Thought you might like to know the poor flea-infested, six-week old baby you dumped off to fend for itself in the wild found his way to my house - as have the four others we now care for - and my kids and I have taken him in and are trying to nurse him back to health. I'm not quite sure how we're going to afford to treat his eye infection and apparent respiratory infection, but we'll manage somehow. Sure hope he's not feleuk positive. That'll be a hard one to explain to my son. Thank God the other animals are all vaccinated.

UFPJ is calling for people to make public statements when the 3000th death occurs- whether with vigils or other types of events. Under the slogan "Not One More Death, Not One More Dollar," the American Friends Service Committee is coordinating events all around the country.

Reports from San Diego Delegation to Oaxaca and Chiapas

San Diego, 30.12.2006 08:08

Activists from San Diego recently traveled to Oaxaca to deliver donations of media resources from San Diego folks and to Chiapas for the Zapatista Intergalactic Encuentro. Below is a compilation of their reports to date, which are being posted to Delete the Border.

From Luciente Zamora (dec 22): Concepcion said that she's not the same woman she was before all this happened... She wants to raise people's consciousness not just about the release of all the prisoners -- which she is fiercely fighting for -- but also to look around and see all the hunger, malnutrition, and ask why things are the way they are and do something about it. --Read More+Photos--

From donkilo (dec 24): After months of planning and a few weeks of worrying after all of the horrifying stories that we have heard by people who were in Oaxaca, the whole delegation is sitting in an internet cafe in Oaxaca, safe and sound. We are a few blocks from a federal police barricade. --Read More--

From j (dec 24): buses and trucks full of police drive through the streets. the police march through the zocalo. five indigenous women are violently harassed by these protectors of civil order. the police try to take the money the women made from their artesian work. the police grab one of the women. someone approaches this oppressive racist-classist scene, while two video cameras follow. the police walk away. an indigenous reality. --Read More--

Fom lotu5 (dec 24): The teacher introduces us to a man from the church who begins to tell us of their struggle. He says that even though the government says there have been 14 people murdered by the government, the community says there are more like 90 people murdered. --Read More--

From lotu5 (dec 27): I had read reports that the APPO decided to take down the barricades and decided to hand over radio universidad. But the personal story is very different. One of the women teachers answers me when I ask why was the cinco senores barricade taken down? She says that it was because 25 people from the barricade were taken away by the police and had their shoes taken off and were shot at point blank with rubber bullets in their feet. So parents of people in the barricades didn´t want their children to be tortured and they decided to take them down. --Read More--

From lotu5 (dec 29): we're in san cristobal now. lots of people are here from around the world to go to the zaptista encuentro. its so good to see old friends again and have a beer with them before spending a week in the jungle. --Read More--

Saddam Hussein Executed

San Francisco Bay Area, 30.12.2006 04:38

On December 30th, 2006, former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein was executed by hanging. Human Rights Watch had come out against the execution stating that "the Iraqi government should not implement the death sentence" because it "was imposed after a deeply flawed trial. The Appeals Chamber of the Iraqi High Tribunal, which was first reported by Iraq's national security adviser to have upheld the sentence, should have conducted a thorough legal review of the verdict and then announced its findings."

Before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, Saddam Hussein was a US ally against Iran. In the 1980s, the Reagan administration covertly provided critical battle planning assistance to Hussein at a time when American intelligence knew that Iraqi commanders would employ chemical weapons in waging the decisive battles of the Iran-Iraq war.

The film will be screened on Tuesday, January 9th at 5:30pm at the San Francisco Public Library. That event will include a screening of the short "Trendsetters or Fakers," and a panel discussion. The film will also be screened on Wednesday, January 17th at the Oakland Museum of California (at 10th and Oak Streets in Oakland) at 6:00pm. The evening will include performances by Youth Movement Records and Youth Speaks, audio pieces produced by TEMPO, and discussion with filmmaker Byron Hurt and hip hop community activists.

Muslims Enraged at RACIST and ISLAMOPHOBIC CONGRESSIONAL PERSONEL

DC, 30.12.2006 04:09

Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode recently wrote a letter to his constituents, expressing his opposition to using the Koran during an unofficial and optional swearing-in ceremony for the nation's first elected Muslim congressman, Member-Elect Keith Ellison of Minnesota. Goode also expressed his, "fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America and to prevent our resources from being swamped."

NYC, 29.12.2006 01:08

Some 2006 trivia for you: What was the year's most covered celebrity wedding? The year's most famous person who died? The year's most famous birth? No sweat.

The year's best and worst public policy?

Public policy will never be as glamorous as celebrity, or even politics, but it determines the quality of our lives. I don't mean to be too zen about it, but critical to the change that we want to create is the knowledge of what currently exists. So here's a quick look back at some of the worst and the best of public policy in 2006.
