23 Antiwar Protesters Arrested at Port of Tacoma

Portland, 13.03.2007 12:38

Tacoma, WA, March 11, 2007 - Fifteen protesters, including Olympia City Councilman TJ Johnson, were arrested for crossing a police barricade in an attempt to deliver a "Citizen's Injunction to Halt Shipment of Military Material to Iraq." The injunction declared the Iraq war to be "contrary to the rule of law" and the current escalation to be "counterproductive" and opposed by "a majority of United States Citizens."

On a ship docked nearby, hundreds of Stryker vehicles from nearby Fort Lewis were being loaded for the 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, which will be deployed next month to Iraq as part of the unpopular escalation announced on Jan. 10 by President George W. Bush.

In addition, eight persons were arrested for challenging on First and Fourth Amendment grounds what protesters believe to be an illegal police ban on backpacks, bags, and purses. Phan Nguyen of Olympia told police his backpack contained only a copy of the United States Constitution. He was arrested anyway. "Just as we feel that soldiers should disobey unlawful orders, so I refuse to obey illegal orders from police," he said.



Send This Letter to Stop Gold's Gym on Division

Portland, 13.03.2007 11:39

Dear Suzanne Savin:

I am writing to express my support for the appellants in their appeal of Administrative Decision - LU 06-179785-AD.

As the appellants point out, a 33,000 square foot retail service would not "equally or better meet the purpose" of "insuring 'small scale' retail use" on Division, but would achieve the opposite result. Thus, the proposed development should not qualify for an adjustment to the Code.



City of Eugene Votes to End Oil Wars

Portland, 13.03.2007 11:39

The Eugene City Council just passed a resolution on a vote of 5 to 3 to end current wars in Persian Gulf, and to oppose Bush's plans for new wars in Iran of Syria. Curiously, the city councilors who opposed the resolution stated that they were also against the war, but that they felt it "is not a local matter"... and that specifically it is congress job to end the war.

Peter Defazio has been hiding and avoiding taking leadership against the oil wars. Please contact him and let him know the time has come for him to stand up and cut off funding for the current wars.

Portland, 13.03.2007 11:39

According to eye witness no cop has been shot. I repeat, no cop has been shot. The suspects are 2 females and 1 male all in their late teens. The 2 females did not run.

NYC, 13.03.2007 02:10

Scripted Libby Trial Ends on Cue: What Can Happen Next?

DC, 12.03.2007 22:11

The Prosecutor, Patrick J. Fitzgerald, crafted the “Scooter” Libby case to protect the Bush-Cheney Gang. Even the members of Libby’s jury knew something was missing. Now, it’s time for the House’s Judiciary Committee to pick up the baton. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NEV) said Libby manipulated “intelligence” to get us into the war and that the case revealed “deeper truths” about VP Dick Cheney. I say: “Bring Cheney to the Bar of Justice!”

Empty Buses, Open Questions

Bristol, 12.03.2007 18:38

"Cynics could be forgiven for believing that the Council is keen to 'prove' the lack of demand..." "Cynics could be forgiven for believing that the Council is keen to 'prove' the lack of demand for bus services to help sharpen the knives for future cuts.." Crash writes: Bristol City Council published their council tax budget recently, with 'only' an increase of 4.44% that apparently offers 'good value for money'. Certain long-suffering residents may disagree....One of the largest items of new expenditure is a whopping £820,000 a year for supporting 'off peak bus routes and park & ride'. The 'off-peak bus routes' in question include the mysterious buses that orbit the city going, it seems, nowhere in particular. These are mainly run by South Glos Bus and Coach, owned by the Durbin family in Patchway who have made millions out of their bus contracts over recent years. But there is one other problem with this: where are all the passengers?....The council has complete control over these services, yet is doing virtually nothing to make the travelling public aware of their existence. Cynics could be forgiven for believing that the Council is keen to 'prove' the lack of demand for bus services to help sharpen the knives for future cuts...Full article.| Empty seats on the move | Budget set for 2007/08 (from bristol.gov.uk) | Past Transport News: A week without our train | Council invest in frequent trains | Reclaim the buses |Contribute An Article | How To Contribute Articles - A Brief Guide | Add To The Calendar

NYM Warriors Targeted &amp; Arrested At Anti-olympic Protest

Portland, 12.03.2007 11:39

Once again colonial fascism rears its ugly head as the colonial brownshirts (vancouver police) arrested three Native Warriors on February 13, 2007 for protesting the 2010 winter olympic games, scheduled to take place in unceded Squamish Territory (whistler re: vancouver). In yet another example of colonial terrorism, the kops arrested NYM Warrior Tselletkwe, of the Secwepemc Nation, Gord Hill of the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation, and Lynn Highway of the Anishnabe Nation. The kops, well known for the terrorism they inflict on Indigenous Peoples, also arrested members of the Indigenous Resistance Organizing Committee (IROC).

As the vancouver olympic organizing committee and the vancouver board of trade (businessmen) were celebrating their unveiling of a "3 year countdown clock" in the downtown business district in vancouver, one Native Warrior stormed the stage and took over the microphone, yelling "Fuck the olympics" until the kops managed to capture him and haul him away.



Impeachment Day: Monday at the Capitol

Portland, 12.03.2007 11:39

We are going to make a last push to get 8016 to the Senate floor for a vote. People will be converging on the Capitol to meet with the Senators and to generally be a presence. We will begin to meet around 11 on the North side of the Capitol--top of the stairs. Vigil with signs--noon-1, so folks who work for the state can join in.

Others may wish to lobby Senators to support 8016. Lobbying: Visit the Senators and ask them to support 8016. Most likely, you wil talk to their staff. Find out how the Senator will vote when 8016 comes to the floor. Ask them if they are willing to call for 8016 to come to the floor.

Call for Another Massive Convergence at Port of Tacoma on Monday Night @ 9pm

Portland, 12.03.2007 11:39

We will meet at the corner of Lincoln and Milawakee, the intersection where everyone got gassed. Let's show these rutheless, bloodthirsty pigs that we are not afraid of going back to where the confrontation happened and that we will not stop. The boat will be gone soon and if we do nothing, especially after what they did to us, we will all regret it later. Bring all of your friends, tell them to bring all of their friends, and be there at the corner of Lincoln and Milawakee at 9pm. From there, after or before, we will figure out what to do on Tuesday, but let's just worry about being there tomorrow. [read more]

Twenty-three arrested at Port of Tacoma in Protest of the War - Sunday March 11, a committed group of citizens from Olympia, Seattle, Port Townsend and Portland engaged in non-violent civil disobedience to prevent equipment from the 4th Stryker Brigade from being loaded at the Port of Tacoma on a ship bound for Iraq. This is an effective way to show support for the troops - prevent them from being placed in a position where they may kill or be killed. Other efforts to stop the war have not worked--the President and Congress continue the war despite letters and demonstrations, said one of those arrested. [read more]

As Resistance to Stryker Shipment Grows, Police Turn Violent on Peaceful Protesters - Following an afternoon rally at the Federal Courthouse in Tacoma on Friday, members of Port Militarization Resistance staged a peaceful demonstration at the Port of Tacoma, where they were met by Tacoma Police. Later, police turned violent and launched tear gas and rubber bullets at activists as they sat chanting peace slogans. [read more]

Report Back From Port of Tacoma - A protest organized by the olympia/tacoma port militarization resistance and the tacoma sds ended in violence at 3:30 early this morning. Protesters moved from one heavily reinforced police barricade (about 250 riot police) to another in the hopes of participating in a non violent act of civil disobedience by sitting in a street and allowing themselves to be arrested. The police responded by firing into the group with pepper spray pellets, bean bags and rubber bullets followed by CS (tear) gas and pepper spray dispersal gas. A few protesters returned the canisters back to the police line to keep them out of the unsuspecting crowd who was not participating in the action. The police then advanced through the cloud of gas and opened fire on the fleeing protesters, chasing them three blocks and launching at least 20 canisters of gas. [read more]

Antiwar Actions Escalate as M20 March Approaches

Chicago, 12.03.2007 04:09

As the days approach the March 20 Festival of Rights at Michigan Avenue and Daley Plaza, political activists are increasing the intensity and number of actions against the war apparatus in Chicago.

On March 6, 2007, political activist Andy Thayer filed suit in federal court against the City of Chicago for civil rights violations and attacks against three Constitutional amendments. The violations came amid a police crackdown during downtown peace actions on March 19, 2005.

On March 7, 2007, Code Pink activists involved with the Occupation Project were arrested amid civil disobedience actions at a local office for pro-war Democratic party representative Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel is one of more than twenty Senators and Representatives (nearly evenly divided between political parties) who have been targeted by direct actions demanding an end to funding the occupation of Iraq.

If you were in NYC during the RNC, or know someone who was, and witnessed the fascist preemptive mass arrests, you know the truth. The cops - brass - and civilian commanders - the Mayor - should be charged for civil rights offenses. Such contempt for the law by law enforcement and high officials should not be allowed to pass without a response.
