Oregon Prescription Drug Program (OPDP)

Portland, 23.08.2007 17:08

Oregon now has a drug buying program, open to all state residents, that allows you to buy prescription drugs at the lowest possible price. The expanded Oregon Prescription Drug Program (OPDP), passed by the 2007 Legislature, is in place and open to every person in the state of Oregon, free of charge. It is free to join this plan but YOU MUST REGISTER. It takes about a week to get the card. More information is below.

You may remain an OPDP member and use your card for discounts at OPDP pharmacies [without enrolling in Medicare Part D]. However, you need to know that individuals who are eligible for Medicare Part D who choose not to enroll by May 15, 2006 will have a 1% per month penalty applied to their premium when they do enroll. In other words, if you choose to enroll a year later, your premium will be 12% higher.

Housing: A Front Page Special

Bristol, 22.08.2007 14:08

Where is Housing in the Region Going? Where is Housing in the Region Going? Barb Drummond writes; Housing Associations are paid vast sums of public money to house some of the most vulnerable in society, yet they often waste money on unnecessary works and litigation against tenants instead of maintaining buildings and ensuring tenants are allowed to be left in peace and safety. Local councilors and MPs have no control over their behavior or spending. By avoiding their responsibilities, the council, police and others are forced to deal with antisocial behavior and poor maintenance. I have had the misfortune to have lived in a housing association flat for almost 4 years. Though promised it was quiet, the insulation is poor and I have been subject to noise nuisance including karaoke, tv and domestic fights at all hours, so there have been loads of call outs to police and the council noise team. It has been so bad I have often had to sleep elsewhere....I am utterly fed up with my housing problems taking over my life, and of hearing similar stories from others. We are supposed to be a civilized society, setting standards for the rest of the world....Full article.While Rich Fish writes: I think as Bristolians we should have more say in the actual architectural designs of the ever increasing new developments. We must not allow the investors to ride roughshod over our planning department and erect hideous new buildings which are out of character with the area...Full article.

Common Ground Seattle to Attend International Tribunal in New Orleans

Seattle, 22.08.2007 01:08

Several dozen hurricane survivors and allies will embark on Tuesday, August 21, for New Orleans, where they plan to participate in an International Tribunal that is bringing charges against the government for actions and inactions in the aftermath of the 2005 storms. The survivor-led group has been working for over a year to gather the thousands who were displaced to the greater Puget Sound area. Just last week they discovered a woman and her six children, all Katrina survivors, who were living in a car. The family was transported to Seattle by bus and, like so many others, was left without follow up support. More info: Please Help Homeless Katrina Survivor

The Tribunal's charges will highlight violations of UN guidelines -- including such neglect of internally displaced persons -- violations that the US itself has frequently invoked as a justification for invading and/or imposing its agenda on other countries. More on the Tribunal

Common Ground Seattle, a branch of Common Ground New Orleans, still needs food and financial assistance for their journey. More info on how to help



Metro Lighting Lock-Out In Berkeley

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.08.2007 18:40

Metro lighting in Berkeley claims to be a "socially and environmentally correct 'green business'," but on Thursday, August 9, 2007, workers feared caustic alkaline may have been released into the air as a result of unsafe disposal. IWW members and pro-union workers were locked out that morning after complaining about this potentially serious chemical exposure in their workplace. Daily pickets are being held from 12-5:00pm in front of Metro Lighting at 2121 San Pablo in Berkeley.



Protests Against Mexican Governors in Chicago, New York and Dallas

United States, 21.08.2007 18:07

On August 16th, email alerts were circulating that Oaxaca governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz (URO) and other governors from Mexico were visiting Mexican Consulates in Chicago on August 17th, New York City on the 18th and Dallas on the 19th to discuss migratory reform. Activists quickly organized demonstrations in solidarity with the people of Oaxaca, and all of Mexico, as well as the millions of Mexican migrants living on the northern side of the US/Mexico border.

A flyer passed out in New York City labeled Ruiz Ortiz, “a co-conspirator with the US government and multinational corporations in the imposition of a political economy, which forces entire communities from his state to migrate north in search of better lives.” The flyer, composed by the Ulises Ruiz Welcoming Committee, also explains that, “Ruiz has attempted to quell social unrest through the criminalization of dissent, the militarization of communities, and the direct support of paramilitary groups in his state.”

To those familiar with the cowardliness of Ruiz Ortiz, it was not a big surprise that he failed to show up with the delegation. Even though he was the focus of the demonstrations, his absence did not prevent activists from protesting the rest of the Mexican Governors and representatives of URO who were with the CONAGO (National Conference of Mexican Governors) delegation.

Report-back: &quot;Bookin' For Daniel&quot; Marathon Fundraiser Breaks Finish Line

Portland, 20.08.2007 14:38

Of the thousands of runners who participated in the 2007 San Francisco Marathon on Sunday, July 29, many were running to raise funds for good causes. One runner in particular had a compelling cause propelling her towards the finish line: all of the pledges that had been made for eco-defense prisoner Daniel McGowan's education fund.

Esther, co-founder of Eberhardt Press, started taking donations and pledges for her 26.2-mile run on behalf of Daniel a month before the marathon, documenting her training and preparations on the "Bookin' for Daniel" blog (bookinfordaniel.eberhardtpress.org). Readers could use the website to make a donation or pledge their support on a per-mile basis. The funds will be used to help support Daniel's efforts to obtain a Master's Degree while serving a seven-year sentence for crimes committed in defense of the earth.

The long run was challenging, Esther wrote in a recent blog posting, "but knowing that I was raising awareness of the case and raising funds for Daniel's education helped get me through those last grueling miles."
