Klamath Riverkeeper files pollution suit against Portland's PacifiCorp

Portland, 29.03.2007 14:38

Today [March 27] the Klamath Riverkeeper is filing a citizens enforcement lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Warren Buffett's PacifiCorp for polluting one of the nation's most important and controversial salmon rivers - the Klamath. Klamath Riverkeeper's suit asserts that the Iron Gate Dam hatchery, which is owned and operated by PacifiCorp and the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG), is unlawfully discharging pollutants into the Klamath River, in violation of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The complaint is seeking an assessment of civil penalties for violations of the CWA, and injunctive relief to enjoin PacifiCorp and the CDFG from further violating its discharge permit and the CWA.

The Sandy Cops will bake

Portland, 29.03.2007 13:38

An article in the Sandy Post has done a pretty fair job of naming names, and showing photos of some of the thugs that are running up citizens' tax burden while simultaneously driving tourists and other cash bearing folks from their city.

According to the article, written by Marcus Hathcock, "The Sandy Police Department and its officers are facing six lawsuits — including five filed in federal court — that accuse officers of excessive force, harassment and violating constitutional rights."

Those of us familiar with this den of iniquity are very familiar with the case of Fouad Kaady, who was murdered by Sandy Cop Bergin and Clacko wierdo Willard. We are also somewhat familiar with the "mysterious" disappearance and uninvestigated murder of Juan Rubio, and the constant harassment of his father, Carlos, for asking questions. Some of the other details are less familiar, so I am going to do the unthinkable, and swipe some corporate rag text to tell the tale. Those who are more curious can follow the above link to the article, and also research both Fouad Kaady and Carlos Rubio here, on Indymedia.



Beware telemarketing that ATTACKS &quot;net neutrality&quot;

Portland, 29.03.2007 13:38

I just receive an automated telemarketing call asking me to warn Oregon Sen Gordon Smith (why only Smith? Wyden is at least as sleazy...) AGAINST support of "net neutrality" beacuse according to the telemarketing speaker "net neutrality" would mean that "consumers would bear the cost of enhancements and expansions to internet" ...

... and ABSENT net neutrality, according to the telemarketing, "big corporations like yahoo and Comcast" would bear these costs.

Receiver of call is than asked to press "1" (I think it was) to leave what they said was to be a personal voice message to Smith saying that you DON'T WANT NET NEUTRALITY because NET NEUTRALITY means only "higher costs to consumer" without consumer benefit.



PARIS: since 16 am heavy riot at gare du nord

Portland, 29.03.2007 13:38

Paris, wednesday. Since 16 am heavy riots in one of the big stations, gar du nord. Young people attack police with everything possible. Smash windows of shops and banks.

Even soldiers seem to be involved.

The riot started after security personal and police had arrested a young immigrant in a train. Seems they had broken at least his arm. He had no ticket.

Soon about 300 people arrived at the station to free him. They were called by friends with mobile phones. They started a massive attack on about 50 riot cops.

The riots are still on. The number of rioters is still growing.

La reja que encarcela para proteger del mal gobierno. ¿Para que las ideas liberadoras no se hablen ni se escuchen?
La verja que separa países y continentes para proteger los imperios. ¿Para que las personas no puedan circular libremente ni desear una vida mejor?

NYC Concedes Defeat and Drops Major Lawsuit Against Time's Up!

NYC, 28.03.2007 22:39

The City of New York quietly dropped a major lawsuit against TIME'S UP! after two years of legal browbeating at taxpayers' expense. In the lawsuit, filed March 22, 2005, the City claimed that cyclists riding together in a group are required to apply for a parade permit. The lawsuit against TIME'S UP! and four of its volunteers sought to inhibit their right to free speech and to freely assemble in public space.





Transition City Bristol...

Bristol, 28.03.2007 22:38

Building on the Energy Descent Launch "We are currently consuming more than 4 barrels of oil for every one discovered..." Following on from the successful Energy Descent Launch event on Wed 21st Feb, 'Transition City Bristol' continues to build this new initiative. Sarah Pugh - Transition City Bristol writes: Tackling the issues of Peak Oil and Climate change head on, Transition City Bristol is looking for answers to the question of how we, the people of Bristol, can create a resilient, sustainable city we’d all like to live in now and in the future. Many of us are already striving to reduce our ecological clodhopper by reducing our household energy use, car use and food miles. But within a highly unsustainable system, how much difference can we actually make? TCB will be looking at ways we can make changes on an individual level, but we’ll also be seeking out community responses towards a more sustainable system overall. Taking a good hard look at all aspects of the city’s energy use – transport, food, buildings, water, energy production, waste and more we hope to bring together an Energy Descent Action Plan which will present a roadmap for the city towards local resilience to the changes to come ... We’re not here to tell you not to fly – we hope you’ll participate in making Bristol such a vibrant, thriving, green and pleasant place to be you won’t want to go anywhere else!Dates For The Diary: Tue 3rd April: Meeting for people wanting to be practically involved in TCB. We are a small group of volunteers and we need all the help we can get. Whether its admin, research, design or distribution of posters, giving talks, arranging film showings in your local area, fundraising or organizing benefits – your input is invaluable. 7pm at the Scout Hut, The Boathouse, Redcliffe Wharf, off Redcliffe Parade. Tue 17th April: Paul Mobbs, Author of Energy Beyond Oil, Talk on Peak Oil and the consequences to all aspects of our lives. As part of the National ‘Wakey Wakey! Tour’. At The Trinity Centre at 7pm. £3 donation on the door. If you’re organizing a local event or group – email us and we’ll put it on the website.

Bildungsproteste in Griechenland gehen weiter

Germany, 27.03.2007 19:10

Am 8. März 2007 wurde über das neue Rahmengesetz für griechische Universitäten abgestimmt. Die Regierung hatte entschieden, trotz der öffentlichen Entrüstung den Prozess im Parlament zu beginnen. Studenten, Schüler, Lehrer und Wissenschaftler kämpfen seit Mai 2006 mit Besetzungen von Schulen und Fakultäten, Streiks und Demonstrationen gegen dieses Gesetz.
Vor Monaten hatte die griechische Regierung beschlossen 1. die Lehrmittelfreiheit an Unis wird abgeschafft und Studiengebuehren eingefuehrt, 2. es darf nicht mehr beliebig lange studiert werden, sondern nach einer bestimmten Zeit erfolgt der Rauswurf, 3. das Asyl auf dem Unigelaende wird abgeschafft, die Polizei darf die Unis betreten. Gegen diese Plaene gibt es jeden Donnerstag Demos, im woechentlichen Wechsel im ganzen Land oder zentral in Athen.

cops are above the law

Portland, 27.03.2007 13:38

Using a somewhat obscure law, civillian Richard Koenig brought charges against Mult. Deputy Todd Brightbill for speeding to Judge Hannons courtroom this week. The deputy gave a speeding ticket last May to Portland School Board member, Marc Abrams for trying to keep up with him as he went down 84 doing up to 90 MPH. In his affidavit accompaning Mr Abram's ticket, Brightbill admits to doing over 80 MPH although he was not responding to any call or emergency.

Mr Koenig brought no witnesses or additional evidence to court thinking that the sworn affidavit filled out by Brightbill admitting his guilt would be enough. Not so.

More LNG on the Columbia?

Portland, 27.03.2007 12:38

There appears to be yet another major fossil fuel project on the Columbia River. We are awaiting formal notification of a third massive liquefied natural gas (LNG) import termilna in Oregon. Calpine Corporation stated its intent to develop an LNG terminal in Warrenton (near Astoria) two years ago. It went bankrupt, and sold its LNG asset out of bankruptcy to Leucadia Nataion Corporation. Leucadia now intends to develop the mouth of the Columbia River with a massive fossil fuel import project.

5 Years After The FBI Raid On 'Raise The Fist'

Portland, 27.03.2007 08:38

On January 24, 2002 I was surrounded by 25 federal agents from the FBI and Secret Service Los Angeles Joint Terror Task force while I was at home asleep taking a nap. The agents were armed with sub-machine guns, shot guns, bullet-proof vests, a battering ram, and a 25 page search and seizure warrant filled with as much "terror rhetoric" as they could think of. While asleep I was unaware that agents were already positioned around every angle of the house, including right outside my window with loaded weapons ready for a fire fight. I was 18.
