Thousands call for impeachment in K'port

New Hampshire, 05.07.2007 13:38

Last Sunday, two thousand people came out to protest at the meeting of President Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin, two imperialists ready to get their lounge on in the upper-class vacationland of Kennebunkport, Maine. The diverse group of protestors including antiwar activists, veterans, lawyers, revolutionary communists, civil libertarians, anarchists, labor leaders, women's groups, and one marching band.

The purpose for most was to call for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. Signs read, "Impeachment is the path to peace," and "Democracy breached, time to impeach." Not everyone, of course, felt impeachment was the most important goal. "The priority is getting out of Iraq, not impeachment. We can get them for war crimes later," said Judy, a Maine resident.

Postal workers walk out over planned pay and job cuts

United Kingdom, 05.07.2007 06:09

Up to 130,000 postal workers took part in a 24-hour strike on Friday -the first in 11 years- to stop the Royal Mail's cost-cutting plans, which the Communication Workers Union (CWU) says would only mean cuts in members' pay and pensions, job cuts and more post office closures. Picket lines were mounted outside sorting offices and mail centres across the country from early morning, disrupting mail deliveries for the day.

In Birmingham, two picket lines at the front and back gates of the main mail centre in Newtown saw, on and off, tens of postal workers and their supporters, while 'Royal Mail police' were trying to break up the picket lines, intimidating and threatening picketers. There was also another picket line in the city centre. [report and pics]

Last week, a well-attended march took place in Gloucester, followed by a rally in the docks, as part of a campaign against the planned closure of the Gloucester Mail Centre. A similar march and rally were held in Coventry city centre last March to protest against the planned closure of Coventry's sorting office.

A Taste Of Things To Come

United Kingdom, 05.07.2007 06:09

Over two weeks ago, the government's chief scientist warned that for the UK, flash floods were likely to be the biggest immediate problem caused by global warming. Sir David King told a committee of MPs that the country would have to prepare for extreme weather such as heat waves and "torrential downpours". Two weeks later, large areas are counting the cost of worst flooding this country has seen for over 50 years. Five people are believed dead as a result of the flooding. The army has been mobilised to help emergency efforts and two more rivers have broken their banks as waters continue to rise. Experts agree that the severe storms and flooding will become more frequent as temperatures rise.

On Fri 29th June, at 6:30am, 6 students from Nottingham and Bradford Universities arrived at the North entrance, superglue-ing their hands together to blockade the main entrance at shift change (Report and pics). They were all removed after around 40 minutes and arrested for Beach of the Peace. At the same time, 3 more students from Nottingham were arrested after blocking the South entrance using a concrete blockade.

On Sat 30th, six Nottingham students were arrested following blockades at the North and South entrances of the base (Report).

SDS Marchers - Blockaded on June 10

DC, 03.07.2007 23:09

The Students for a Democratic Society gathered at Dupont Circle on Sunday June 10 in solidarity with oppressed Palestinian people. A spontaneous march from Dupont Circle to the Capitol grounds was illegally blockaded by US Capitol Police. Peaceful marchers were prevented from attending a permitted rally on the West Lawn of the Capital. Some of the prevention methods used by the cops included physical altercation and verbal harassment. SDS needs any help you can provide in terms of finding out why this happened and if this was illegal?

Cloy Richards, a soldier put in the media spotlight when his mother Tina Richards worked to get him the health care he needs after returning from Iraq eighty percent disabled. These are not happenstance targets. These young men are leaders of the Iraq Veterans Against the War and they are speaking out in a strong and coordinated way. And now I have been targeted.



Audio: Dennis Kucinich speaks at Benson High

Portland, 03.07.2007 22:38

Democratic Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich spoke to a large gathering Sunday evening, July 1, 2007 at Benson High School, his speech focusing mainly on the need for universal health care and Globalization. His talk lasted abut 25 minutes, and the remainder of this 47 minute audio file is questions and answers from the audience. Oddly, he didn't mention the Iraq war that much, or even his early ongoing opposition to it.

Dennis, as is usually the case, was very eloquent, to the point and demonstrated a way to take our country back from corporate control. Yes, he skirted the 911 issue; yes, he wasn't extremely forthcoming concerning some issues dear to the far left. But, he only had so much time and I believe he made good use of this hour. | read more >>

Notes on buying a bicycle in Vancouver

Portland, 03.07.2007 07:37

Wisconsin to China, and then back across the sea to Vancouver, Washington. That was the trajectory of my brand new Trek bicycle, which I bought recently at a bike shop here in Vancouver.

Trek is based in Wisconsin, and some of their bikes, such as the one I bought, are made in China. It wasn't until I got home with my new bike that I saw the big, prominently placed Made in China sticker. I had assumed Treks were made in the U.S. -- if not in idyllic Wisconsin, then somewhere else. This misconception influenced my decision to buy another Trek, (my last Trek, bought years ago, was stolen last year. I wrote about that, using an alias, here:  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/06/341690.shtml )

Portland, 03.07.2007 07:37

Over 50 people particpated in our weekly peace vigil on Wednesday.

As of yesterday, this has been the worst quarter for US soldiers since the illegal invasion began in 2003. The toll for the past three months -- 329 -- made it the deadliest quarter for U.S. troops in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion. That surpasses the 316 soldiers killed during November 2004 to January 2005. End the occupation and bring our soldiers, sailors and air force home now!

Guilty Until Proven Innocent in Multnomah County

Portland, 03.07.2007 07:37

My partner sold her property in Multnomah County in June, 2004 and moved in with me in Washington County.

Recently, she received a letter from Multnomah County requesting that she provide "proof" she was not a resident in 2005. This got my dander up - what if every government organization chased you around with this kind of crap when you moved? I sent them a letter that said that if my partner had been a resident in 2005, she would have paid her taxes (which is true); and that here in these United States, we don't have to prove our innocence and we don't have to show the government our papers.

Now they have sent a tax bill for 2005. It's completely bogus, of course; neither of us was a resident of Multnomah County in 2005, not for even a single day, not in any way, shape or form, through presence, property ownership, or any other conceivable definition.



Seattle Parks Department Hires Street Performers

Portland, 03.07.2007 07:37

"Paid Buskers" is an oxymoron. Buskers, or street performers, are defined by the fact that they have a hat out for tips in the public square. A current program sponsored by the Seattle Parks and Recreation Dept. is paying buskers to play in Seattle parks this summer, and it has raised some controversy, regarding the idea of "paid busking." But buskers are paid in tips regularly, and it is not unusual for large festivals to hire buskers for their events to add ambiance.

I have been a street performer since 1978. I still have my Seattle Pike Place Market 1978 Street Performer Permit. I have busked in a ridiculous array of venues this lifetime. I have performed on the Santa Cruz Mall, on Santa Barbara's State Street, in New Orleans' French Quarter, in Seattle's Pike Place Market, in Austin, TX, at San Francisco's Wharf, on the Boardwalk in Venice, CA...each city has its own relationship with busking and buskers. Each city has its own unique busker culture. As an actual busker myself, I find it frustrating often, the way journalists who only see our culture from outside, portray us. I am happy to be able to talk about this in first person, as few journalists can.

Universal Health Care Is Possible with HR 676

Portland, 03.07.2007 07:37

Dennis Kucinich has a bill before Congress (HR 676) to provide Universal, Single-Payer, NOT FOR PROFIT Health Care. HR 676 takes health care away from the insurance companies and gives it back to the physicians.

On Jan. 24, 2007, Reps. John Conyers and Dennis Kucinich led 43 other House members in introducing HR 676, the Conyers/Kucinich Health Care bill. Today the bill, which Kucinich helped write, is supported by 76 members of Congress, 250 union locals, and more than 14,000 physicians. HR 676 is endorsed by the New Hampshire State Legislature and by Michael Moore, producer of SICKO.

Call your members of Congress and tell them to support HR 676, the Conyers/Kucinich Health Care bill. 1-800-459-1887, 1-800-828-0498.



Local Videographer Assaulted by Portland Police Officer to Sue City

Portland, 03.07.2007 07:37

Local videographer Carey Klein, better known as Deva, will file a lawsuit today against Officer Mark Zylawy and the City of Portland for assaulting him while he was filming a World Can't Wait Protest at the Lloyd Center. Deva is well known to the Portland Police. He has been recording police conduct at demonstrations for many years. Some of his videos have been used in past lawsuits against Portland police officers for use of excessive force, including the case of Marbet v. City of Portland in which the City of Portland paid over half a million dollars in damages and legal fees to victims of indiscriminate use of pepper spray at demonstrations.

This lawsuit arises from an incident on January 31, 2006, when he was recording a group of protesters as they exited the Lloyd Center. The protest was organized by World Can't Wait to demand an end to the Bush regime. Because Deva was filming the protest from behind, he was the last person out as the group exited the Lloyd Center. A security guard grabbed him and said, "Time for you to go!" Shortly thereafter, Officer Zylawy pushed Deva from behind, without provocation or warning, causing him to fall on the concrete parking lot. The fall caused injuries to Deva's elbow, shoulder and hip. Deva refuses to let the incident intimidate him or discourage him from monitoring police misconduct, but he takes the incident very seriously. He has chosen to sue the officer and the City of Portland for this assault because he feels that it is essential for police officers to be held accountable when they attack the people who monitor their behavior.
