Patients and Supporters Rally for Sanctuary City in Berkeley

San Francisco Bay Area, 02.08.2007 23:38

On July 31st, medical marijuana patients and supporters rallied at a Berkeley City Council meeting to urge the City Council to adopt a Sanctuary Resolution to help protect medical cannabis dispensaries within the city. Supporters were mobilized because the LAPD had just seized the bank account of the Berkeley Patients' Group, which is a local dispensary. Local activists spoke about the need to protect patients and providers from federal interference both in Berkeley and across the state. City Council members assured the patients and their supporters that this issue will be taken up when the City Council reconvenes in September.

Climate Camp Preparations In Full Swing

United Kingdom, 02.08.2007 18:38

Not distracted by the injuction BAA have threatened with, the preperations for the Camp For Climate Action are in full swing. Activists recently met with locals from around Heathrow to find a warm welcome in a community fed up with BAA's lies over an ever expansing airport. The High Court in London was the scenery of some funny encounters today as BAA put forward their case for an injunction they served individuals from certain anti-airport groups earlier last week. The whole thing seemed poorly prepared. Read reports: (1) (2)

And as things currently look, it won't have any effect on the actual camp at all. A spokesperson for the Camp For Climate Action said: 'This injunction is totally irrelevant to us. We won't be intimidated or bullied. The camp is going ahead!'. Meanwhile, in this article, UK Indymedia looks back on an inspiring year packed with climate action goodness...

Resist to Live: Interview with Don Benjamin

San Diego, 02.08.2007 18:08

In some respects, Don Benjamín is one of the lucky ones, a survivor.

As a 35-year-old indigenous peasant from Guatemala’s western highlands, he has pushed the limits of survival, beyond what many could ever imagine – outlasting a genocide aimed at him and other Maya civilians in the 1980s and 90s: a strategic, government-sponsored crusade that left him orphaned as a young teenager, fleeing into the mountainous backcountry, eluding army search squads and aerial bombardments.

In the early 1980s, those who resolved to attempt prolonging their survival by living in hiding among the wilderness formed the Communities of Population in Resistance (CPR). As a member of the CPR for nearly a decade and a half, Don Benjamín not only confronted repeated military attacks, he often lacked shelter and clothing amid dangerously chilly weather, and constantly battled hunger.

He did not re-emerge from the CPR until after the signing of the Peace Accords in December 1996, which officially ended the military’s so-called “counterinsurgency” operations against Guatemala’s Maya population, implemented under the guise of hunting guerrilla fighters.

A few years later, a truth commission sponsored by the United Nations (UN) found that more than 200,000 people had been killed in the conflict -- the overwhelming majority Maya -- establishing the bloodshed in Guatemala as one of the deadliest genocides in our hemisphere’s modern history...
Don Benjamín, member of the Association for Justice and Reconciliation, talks about surviving Guatemala’s genocide against the Maya and the current indigenous-led struggle to demand justice.--Read More--

LONE VET REPORT

Portland, 02.08.2007 16:37

In the last few weeks I have been asked, in one form or another---why protest, why waste your time?

I want people to think about the occupation, even if only for a few minutes.
I want people to know how many have died or been seriously wounded this week
I want people to know how much this lunatic in the WH has cost us this week

Protests force people out of their cocoon to face ugly facts.
Protesting allows me to sleep at night---knowing I tried to stop this madness.
Protesting allows me to answer the question, "Did you speak up?"

The Constitution says:

Article 2, Section 4 "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Shall means, you must do it----there is no mention of how many votes, media circus or not having the time to do what is mandated, it says in no uncertain terms----do your duty Mr. Congressman. Congressman Blumenauer is violating his oath of office every day that he will not call for the impeachment of Bush/Cheney and other civil officers of the United States.

See you on Thursday, August 2, at high noon.

82nd Ave Big Box Store Permit Off Hold; Rally Scheduled Aug 7th

Portland, 02.08.2007 16:37

Leaders of the Save Madison South and Save Roseway coalitions in NE Portland are now calling upon their 900+ member-strong support base to turn out for one of Portland's biggest National Night Out celebrations ever.

The National Night Out event, sponsored by both the Madison South and Roseway Neighborhood Associations, is taking place Tuesday, August 7, 2007 from 6:30-8:30pm at Glenhaven Park (NE 82nd and Siskiyou) as a celebration of neighborhood livability.

However, with the permit application coming off hold for a proposed "big box store" development in the neighborhood, many residents are planning on attending the neighborhood event as a rally of support. The rally will be the official kick-off the fight against what could likely be Portland's newest Wal-Mart Supercenter.

The application for this proposed project came off hold this week on July 31st, and the land-use hearing date has been scheduled for 9am on October 1 and 3, 2007 at the City of Portland's Bureau of Development Services Room 2500-A [second floor], located at 1900 SW Fourth Avenue. Hundreds of residents are expected to pack the room to testify at the hearing.

The site in question is located on the now-vacant land (former golf driving range) across from Madison High School on NE 82nd. The developer so far has refused to publicly identify their tenant; however Canadian-based SmartCentre's website (www.smartcentres.com) proudly touts their strong relationship with Wal-Mart, with approximately 120 out of their 180 projects ending up being a Wal-Mart.

Los testimonios de 15 supervivientes del naufragio del cayuco el pasado 19 de Julio en aguas canarias han llevado a su abogado de oficio ha presentar una querella criminal por la muerte de 88 personas. Las autoridades francesas reconocen que el Tonnere, participó en la operación de rescate.

La versión oficial asegura que fué el levantarse todxs al mismo tiempo lo que hizo volcar el cayuco, y el estado del mar lo que imposibilitó su rescate, de la misma manera, no se sabe si por estar cerrado el juzgado de refuerzo creado especialmente para atender las llegadas de cayucos, (curiosamente, no funciona los fines de semana), o por el retraso al ser el juzgado de guardia quién se hizo cargo, no hubo investigación judicial por parte de las autoridades del estado español de la desaparición de un número incierto de personas en una operación con tantos interrogantes.

Peter Phillips, head of "Project Censored" at Sonoma State University and principal author of its annual compilations of the 25 "most censored stories" in the U.S. corporate media, spoke in San Diego at the First Unitarian-Universalist Church July 25.

Bush and Dick Cheney and removing them from office.--Read More--

Protest Australian Foriegn Minister Alexander Downer this weekend!

Aotearoa, 01.08.2007 08:09

Protest Australian Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer, at NZ National Party Conference. ImagineNative Action, in collaboration with Radical Youth, is organising an action this weekend to protest the presence of Alexander Downer at the National Party Conference being held at the Langham Hotel in central Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland). We want to send a clear message to Alexander Downer and the National Party that we do not support the Australian Colonial Government's recent military/police invasion of Aboriginal Lands. More importantly we wish to stand in solidarity with the Indigenous Peoples of Occupied Australia as this plays a vital role in lifting the spirits of the Aboriginal People, strengthening their will to resist the colonial invasion and economic exploitation of their lands. Saturday August 4th, 2.30pm Mass demo against Downer and the National Party. Meet corner of Symonds Street and K'rd to march on the Langham Hotel, Symonds Street. 7.00pm: Disrupt Downer's Dinner. Meet corner of Karangahape Road and Symonds Street, Auckland. Bring musical instruments (especially taonga puoro - traditional Maori instruments) and noise makers. Some kai will be provided but donations are always welcome! Since Don Brash resigned as National Party leader the National Party has put in a lot effort to convince us that they care about Tangata Whenua, the environment, and the poor of Aotearoa. Alexander Downer is a leading representative of a colonial government that has invaded Indigenous lands, supported similar actions in Indonesia and supplied troops to the invasion/occupation of Iraq. His government has publicly advocated using Aboriginal lands for large scale mining and nuclear waste dumping operations. Downer's presence at the National conference clearly shows that National hasn't changed at all. It is still a party that endorses racism against indigenous people and represents the interests of the rich and powerful, at the expense of ordinary people and our whenua. As it is likely that National will form the next colonial government of Aotearoa it is essential they know we will not tolerate racist and exploitative policies such as those enacted by Alexander Downer and his government. For more information or to endorse this action email indigenous.solidarity (at) gmail.com or call/text 021 1551154 Endorsed by: ImagineNative Action Radical Youth Indonesia Human Rights Committee A Space Inside: Tamaki Makaurau Anarchist Collective Global Peace and Justice Auckland (GPJA)

Portland, 01.08.2007 01:08

Anti immigrant folks in PDX this Wednesday! Counter Protest!!!

The city of Portland is finally getting on with plans to build a Day Labor Hiring site! Unfortunately reactionary right wing bigot groups are car pooling again up to Portland to condemn progressive actions and to spout their flimsy racist anti-immigrant rhetoric.

Come out to support the Day Labor Center and to denounce the anti-immigrant racist scapegoating! Mayor Tom Potter and community members plan to create a hire site for day laborers. Read about their plans in the Portland Tribune of July 24

The hearing on the proposal will be in front of the Portland City Council, Wednesday, August 1, at 5:00 p.m. Call the city hall at (503) 823-4000 to be able to testify. Portland City Hall is located at 1221 SW 4th Ave (Jefferson and 4th)

There are no illegal men, women or children. Poverty, lack of health care, lack of job security, lack of prioritizing funding for children, privatization, neo-liberal economic polices, white supremacy and patriarchy...all of these things perpetuated by U.S. capitalist and imperialist policies are the real crimes.~ SIN FRONTERAS PORTLAND
