Civil suit victory against killer cop in the Bronx!

NYC, 15.06.2007 18:38

On June 6, 2007, in the Bronx Supreme Court, a jury of six decided in favor of Juanita Young in the civil suit against New York City in the killing of her son Malcolm Ferguson from seven years ago. After the week and a half trial, the jury deliberated for almost four hours, returning with a verdict that supported Juanita's claims of excessive force by police officer Louis Rivera. The jury awarded Juanita more than what was asked for (her attorney Seth Harris asked for $7.5 million - the jury awarded her $10.5 million. They increased the punitive damage amount from $5m to $7m), a clear msssage that Rivera was in the wrong!

Kurdish Culture, Repression, Women’s Rights, and Resistance

Arkansas, 15.06.2007 16:10

For the Kurdish people outrageous acts of oppression in Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Armenia, and Syria have included mass murder, suppression of language rights, exploitation of Kurdish resources with nothing but poverty given in return, deprivations of national citizenships, and the brutal suppression of political representation. Despite the oppression the Kurdish people have faced, they continue to speak their language and organize politically and, at times, militarily to fight back everywhere they continue to live as a native population.

Immigration Raids: Standing Up for Neighbors

Portland, 15.06.2007 13:39

Two days ago, ICE attacked our neighbors and comrades. They did so in the name of Homeland Security and the federal government. Families were broken apart, parents were ripped away from their children, wives and husbands were torn from their spouses. This is not right. Cascadians, this is an assault on our community, on our comrades. We will not stand for it.

On the night of the attack, hundreds of supporters flooded into St Andrew's Catholic Church to express their outrage, offer support to the detainees, and demand an end to the raids. Even the mayor of this city denounced the assault. Community members are beginning to organize a new Sanctuary movement. Let it grow.

Portland Business Owner Doing Okay At &quot;Ground Zero To Day Labor Movement”

Portland, 14.06.2007 13:38

Alejandro is an immigrant from Oaxacaca, Mexico whose weathered, toughened hands betrayed his experience with construction jobs. In a recent interview, he said visiting the de facto day labor corners at SE 6th and Ankeny every morning has been his ongoing task for at least a month, every time landing him some type of work. "Oaxacaca is too much resting, not enough work," he explained. "In Portland there is good natural beauty and good jobs." His personal plan was to work here very hard for five years and then return home to his wife and two children, ages 7 and 4.

While some area businesses and property owners want laborers like Alejandro who search daily for work on and around the SE 6th Avenue and Ankeny intersection relocated as soon as possible to a new as yet unbuilt day labor center, others in the area have not made that demand. In fact, the functioning business closest to the day labor issue, the only one along that stretch of SE 6th Avenue whose front door literally opens into the on-street labor market, has been doing quite well and has no immediate plans to change.

Tuvalu: Global Face Of Climate Change

Aotearoa, 14.06.2007 08:09

As the leaders of the G8 summit in Heiligendamm in Germany hammered the final communiqué on climate change, half a world away, in the small Pacific island country of Tuvalu, Silafaga Lalua, a born and bred islander pondered her shaky future on the islands, as she has always done again and again. Silafaga Lalua has a difficult decision on her hands, to either pack her bags and leave Tuvalu for safer territories or stay and watch her country slowly sink under the rising sea levels in the Pacific and hope for the best. Scientific predictions from the Australian Government predict dire consequences for the island in the next 50 years. Other predictions say it could be sooner. So for Silafaga, both issues are not easy to deal with , but she is increasingly aware that something has got to give.

Action Alert from Rogue Flyfishers

Rogue Valley, 13.06.2007 13:10

The following CALL TO ACTION comes from the Chair of the Jackson County (Oregon) Democrats. Paulie Brading's message was sent out early on the morning of Tuesday, June 12 with the request to ACT NOW, Time is Running Out!

This month the ROGUE FLYFISHERS newsletter has a conservation column which addresses HB 3525. You will not get the newsletter for a few more days yet. As it turns out, we don't have a few more days. We need your help now. Below is an e-mail that I just received from Water Watch. They said much better than I did. Please read it and contact those committee members ASAP--Tom Collett

We need your support to defeat HB 3525 ("Oasis"), a bill that would circumvent existing fishery protection rules for the Columbia River to allow the permanent withdrawal of 500,000 acre feet of water annually.
