AU Administration threatens to shut down NCOR if protests "originate at AU"; cops, Nazis prowl campus

Silencing students: we do that. Sadistic threats: we do that. Excessive and unnecessary force: we do that too. Attention Fanshawe Students, the moment you cross onto this side of our gated community’s security barrier - fence - you are trespassing. As a trespasser you are subject to being beaten, threatened, humiliated and arrested without an explanation. Sound ridiculous? It did to me too before February 13; the day it all changed. As many of you already know, a group of six students, including myself, decided to attend the career fair on Tuesday to promote peace, love and the de-militarization of the world for Valentine’s Day. We held signs and handed out information as a counterweight to the military recruiter’s lies. We did not block any tables, we did not block traffic, we were not aggressive and we were openly discussing issues with many supporters of the military, who still appreciated our efforts to promote peace.
Public demonstration Saturday, February 24, at 1:00 p.m., Federal Building, 451 Talbot St. Five Londoners have been holding a rotating hunger strike for the last two weeks in solidarity with three imprisoned Muslim men who have refused food for more than two months. These five Londoners join a growing number of Canadians holding rotating fasts in other parts of the country, from Toronto to British Columbia, in support of the detainees and their hunger strike. They have chosen to do this as a symbolic act of protest against the imprisonment of Mahmoud Jaballah, Mohammad Mahjoub, and Hassan Almrei in the Kingston Immigration Holding Centre, a prison encased in barbed wire inside the Millhaven Penitentiary near Kingston.
After returning from internships working with youth and the elderly in Tanzania and Belize, 4th year Huron College students Amber Matthews and Renee McBeth want to get people talking about how individuals and groups are excluded in Canada and the world, and to discuss possibilities for change.

Towards a Paradigm of Inclusion will feature guest speakers and panelists who have worked in local homeless initiatives, feminist causes, international development, independent media, universities, and community organizations such as the Cross Cultural Learners Centre. Throughout the day panelist and workshop facilitators will serve to guide discussion towards various kinds of exclusion that need to be discussed in order to move to more a inclusive community, society and world. The conference will take place from 10am-2pm on March 9th in the Huron Room at Huron University College. The conference is entirely free and will begin with a breakfast and keynote speaker, which will be followed by a panel discussion, complementary lunch and workshops in the afternoon.

House Appropriations Chair David Obey (Dem., Wisc.) ran into woman in the hallway in Washington recently and ended up yelling at her and her friends, accusing them of "smoking something that's not legal" if they disagreed with him, and denouncing "idiot liberals." The woman, Tina Richards, introduced herself to Obey as the mother of a Marine about to depart for his third tour of Iraq, and as someone who has tried to communicate with Obey but received no response. Then she… Well, watch the video yourself. It may be depressing, but it's certainly entertaining (just like network television): http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/19392

I have just returned from Tacoma. The police responded to non violent civil disobedience in the form of passively sitting in a road with huge amounts of tears gas, pepper gas, pepper spray, bean bags, rubber bullets and pellets. It's unclear how many are injured. There has been at least one arrest (for taking a backpack in a no backpack zone). This was a MASSIVE show of police reppression. I estimate at least 20 canisters were launched.

OKLAHOMA – In connection with worldwide Earth Day celebrations, Oklahomans will be learning about how they can improve the environment and local economy at the 6th annual Oklahoma Sustainability Network Conference. Farmers, ranchers, students, architects, city planners, religious, business and community leaders will be among the participants at the Oklahoma Sustainability Conference hosted by the Oklahoma Sustainability Network April 20-21 at the National Weather Center in Norman. This conference will offer resources, networking opportunities, and information on a variety of topics related to sustainability, including: farming and agriculture; green building; biofuel, wind and solar energy; business and industry; food; climate change; land use; transportation; religion and ethics; activism; ecological footprints; and the natural environment. "This year we are celebrating Oklahoma's centennial,” said Miles Tolbert, Secretary of Environment for the state of Oklahoma. “The conference’s focus on sustainability is very well timed, since ‘sustainability’ is just another way of saying that we intend to stay a while. In fact, you need to look no further than the headlines about the development of the state's alternative fuels industry and debates over water to see how crucial sustainability is to the state's future." Two keynote speakers will bring national expertise to the event. On Friday, April 20, Victor Davis Hanson will speak about the importance of food and farming to sustainability, moving away from the agro-industrial model and returning to agriculture’s traditional role in society. Hanson is a nationally syndicated columnist and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. On Saturday, April 21, Doug McKenzie-Mohr, co-author of Fostering Sustainable Behavior: An Introduction to Community-Based Social Marketing, will discuss how to take the ideas of sustainability to a broader audience through focused social marketing. McKenzie-Mohr will also lead a half-day, intensive workshop on the same topic. Additional featured speakers for the Oklahoma Sustainability Network Conference include: * Alan Hart, principal of VIA Architecture of Vancouver, architect and urban designer for transit infrastructure projects in Vancouver and Seattle. * Mike McAnelly, senior planner for Carter and Burgess of Dallas and consultant for central Oklahoma’s Fixed Guideway Study. * Bob Waldrop, founder of the Oklahoma Food Cooperative and local advocate for social and environmental responsibility. * Jim Garrison, president of Wisdom University in San Francisco and president/cofounder of the State of the World Forum with Mikhail Gorbachev. * Dr. David Karoly, Williams Chair Professor of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma, lead author and review editor of the recent UN report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “The challenge is to accept that global warming is real, it will increase in the future, and policy choices that we make now will affect the climate that our grandchildren will experience towards the end of this century,” said Dr. Karoly. “The opportunity for Oklahomans is to use this information wisely, to seize its benefits, to plan for adverse impacts, and to take advantage of business opportunities in Oklahoma.” Each year, the Oklahoma Sustainability Network offers lunch and snacks made entirely of locally grown foods. Buying enough local produce to feed a crowd of more than 300 people requires conference coordinators to place their catering orders several months in advance. Coordinators say it’s worth the extra effort, because it supports the local economy, ecology and equity and is highly valued and enjoyed by attendees. “This difficulty is indicative of why we need this conference,” said Jennifer Gooden, conference coordinator. “Part of the Oklahoma Sustainability Network’s mission is to make it easier to buy locally-grown and produced goods. Buying local produce should be as easy as walking to your neighborhood grocery store.” The Oklahoma Sustainability Conference will be held April 20 and 21 at the National Weather Center in Norman, Okla. For more information or to register, visit www.oksustainability.org or call (405) 632-2066. The Oklahoma Sustainability Network Conference is presented by the Oklahoma Sustainability Network and hosted by Sustainable OKC. The Oklahoma Sustainability Network Conference is sponsored by the Office of the Oklahoma Secretary of the Environment; OG&E; Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture; Harlan Hentges, Attorney at Law; Department of Environmental Quality, Pollution Prevention; The Sierra Club, Oklahoma Chapter; OU Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the Environment; American Planning Association Oklahoma and Oklahoma Alliance for Public Transportation; Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture; OSU Environmental Institute; OSU Environmental Science Graduate Program; Oklahoma Food & Agricultural Products Center; Guaranteed Watt Saver Systems Inc.; EIA Design; and Land Legacy. # # # Editor’s Note: For more information, photos or interviews or to attend the conference as working media at no charge, call Anglin Public Relations at (405) 840-4222.
