Monsanto Buys Terminator Technology: U.S. approves take-over of seed company

Portland, 13.06.2007 11:52

On June 1, 2007 the United States Justice Department gave the green light for Monsanto's $1.5 billion takeover of the world's largest cotton seed company, Delta & Pine Land (D&PL) -- the US company that developed and patented the world's first Terminator seed technology.

Terminator seeds are genetically engineered to be sterile after first harvest and were developed to stop farmers from saving seed.

"As the biggest seed company in the world, Monsanto stands to gain the most by incorporating Terminator technology into all its seeds, thus forcing farmers to buy new seed every year" said Lucy Sharratt, Coordinator of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network.



Grannies Arrested Blocking Tank in Portland

Portland, 13.06.2007 11:52

Two of the "Seriously Pissed Off Grannies " of the Surge Protedtion Brigade were arrested on June 9th stopping the tank that was in the Rose Parade in Portland, Oregon.

Bonnie Tinker and Sara Graham were arrested at the 100th Anniversary Portland Rose Festival Parade when they stood to block a U.S. Army Tank from entering the parade.

Why Try to Stop a Tank from Parading Through Portland?
This is a time to mourn war, not to celebrate it.
The military section of this parade is intended to honor "the Greatest Generation."
Inviting the veterans to march in the parade honors veterans.
Honoring service to country is what democracies do.
Parades are fun, but if we want to honor our veterans, we should also pay for the health care and services they need and deserve.

Boise neighborhood still being MALed

Portland, 13.06.2007 11:52

How has the streetscape plan come to arrive on Mississippi and how does it relate to Rachel Elizabeth's appeal of The City Garden development scheduled June 25th before the Historic Landmark Commission?

Let's start at the very beginning. Mississippi Ave is in a Pedestrian District. This means that new developments must provide a 12 foot sidewalk. There are two ways that this is achieved, the builders either step their building back 2 feet or the street may be narrowed. In either case, the Developers provide (pay) for the modifications to the right of way. It is more common for new developments to step back their building. This is what PDOT told The Mississippi Ave Lofts (MAL) they must do when they were going through review. But, they did not want to do that so they arranged to talk with a PDOT supervisor. They met with Kurt Krueger and the outcome was that the street would be narrowed instead.

Montana Lied, Intends to Slaughter!

Portland, 13.06.2007 11:52

WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO.

Your calls are needed now.
Approximately 50 wild buffalo are in the trap near West Yellowstone's
airport right now. After all their quotes in papers worldwide
promising not to slaughter any buffalo left in Montana, the agencies
have back-tracked on their word to the American people and others
throughout the world.

MONTANA INTENDS TO SLAUGHTER WILD BUFFALO TODAY.

Agencies might also send yearling buffalo to the Corwin Springs quarantine facility, where they will be raised like livestock and used in scientific experiments. Half of all the yearlings sent to
Corwin Springs will be slaughtered.



Coming Soon to Drinking Water Near You

Portland, 13.06.2007 11:52

Oregon House Bill 3099, a mandatory water fluoridation bill which seeks to force the introduction of industrial toxic waste products into our drinking water, is very close to becoming law. After initial opposition was too strong to pass the original bill, "opt-out" clauses have been added, but this is still a wolf in sheep's clothing -- just a few extra phone calls and/or e-mails could make the difference. If you are familiar with the issue already, please take a few minutes to take action now, otherwise find out more now!



Arab-American Teach-in Explores U.S. Policy

San Diego, 13.06.2007 11:52

Any resemblance between what the mainstream U.S. media say about American involvement in the Middle East and reality is, if not purely coincidental, at least far-fetched, said three speakers at a teach-in on Middle East issues May 31 at the Four Points Sheraton on Aero Drive. Sponsored by the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), the Alternate Focus public-access cable-TV program on Middle Eastern issues, the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice and the San Diego chapter of the National Lawyers’ Guild, the event showcased UCSD Iranian studies professor Babak Rahimi, UCSD history professor Michael Provence, and San Diego ADC president Nasser Barghouti, all of whom built their presentations around the contrast between what our media tell us about the Middle East and what’s really going on there.

You're F*@%ing Sacked!

Bristol, 10.06.2007 17:38

First Great Western sacks a driver for swearing Troubled train operator, First Great Western, already short of drivers, has taken the bizarre step of sacking a driver for swearing at a colleague during an argument. Is swearing gross misconduct? IWW rep writes; Troubled train operator, First Great Western, already short of drivers, has taken the bizarre step of sacking a driver for swearing at a colleague during an argument, claiming that the swearing was "threatening." Sacked Bristol driver Patrick Spackman said: "I regret swearing at him. And I regret referring to his weight. But for management to call this 'gross misconduct' is just ludicrous..." First Great Western boss Alison Forster is already under pressure over the company's poor services. Last year Early Day Motions were tabled in Parliament condemning reductions in services and now David Drew, MP for Stroud, has tabled an EDM calling for First Great Western services to be run in the public sector. Mr Spackman is being represented by the Industrial Workers of the World, the union universally known as "the Wobblies." A union spokesperson said: "First Great Western have mishandled this case from the beginning. It could easily have been resolved months ago but now it will have to be dealt with by an Employment Tribunal. Yet more unnecessary stress for our member and a total waste of time and money for everyone."

3500 US Dead Honored in Medford, Oregon

Rogue Valley, 10.06.2007 05:10

A quiet and fairly somber crowd dressed in black gathered in Medford, Oregon to honor United States soldiers who have lost their lives in the Iraq War. Citizens for Peace & Justice have organized past memorials as the numbers of troops killed have kept climbing. It was a time of remembrance and reflection, and it was a time to yet again call for an end to the war-bring our troops home.

Here are photographs taken from the regular CP&J corner, at Barnett and Riverside in Medford, Oregon this Saturday, June 9, 2007

UCSD Attempts to Stifle Student Free Speech With Policy Change

San Diego, 10.06.2007 04:08

The UCSD administration is trying to change their policies on "Speech, Advocacy and Distribution of Literature", asking for public comment between now and june 25th, of course, finals week and a week in the summer, right after graduation, to ensure that no one will comment. PLEASE review this and comment!

The document says that any demonstrations of 10 or more people require a permit, that they must be 25 feet from the doors of any administration buildings, that amplified sound can only occur between 11am-1pm and 5pm-7pm.

The most egregious part of this is that it says that UCSD employees, TA's and faculty, must not express their political views on campus.

This is obviously in response to the rallies of the last few weeks where TA's, students and faculty have all come out to criticize the school for the firing of two TA's for political reasons, regardless of their teaching abilities.

Update: Tire Burning Plant Shoved Outta Town by Angry St Helensistas

Portland, 10.06.2007 00:38

Last month, I reported that Reklaim Technologies was trying to build a dirty, toxic tire-burning plant along the Columbia river, in the city of St Helens.

At the time that I wrote that report, it appeared that the permit for this facility was a done deal. The groundwork had been laid in the middle of the night, sneaking in under the radar in an effort to avoid citizen involvement in this decision. Ever-grasping planning commissioner Skip Baker appeared to already have his mind made up, and Reklaim spokespersons were already rubbing their hands together in gleeful anticipation of the new facility. However, the people of St Helens have proved to be more than these greedy industrialists bargained for.
