9/11, Uncle Osama and The US Be Tray us Report

Portland, 11.09.2007 18:38

Recent Surge of Osama video appearences seem link to US military designs. Other apprearnces seem link to US political election and policy making. Osama is GI.
A continuance of coincidences over time is likely not a coincidence, but a consistent media response. (9/11- Osama did it). This is of course is shown from his video allegedly admitting his orchestration.. I don't know for sure, for I don't speak Arabic and my source of this information are the same people whom purposefully led this country to war to protect me from pretend WMD's. So the fact is there is no credible source of information.
Now its 6 years since the 9/11-2001 coop we get 2 Osama video this week. We also get the Petraeus (Be Tray us) Report, in the face of growing opposition in the occupation, and months into the surge.



Eric McDavid's Commissary Cut Off

Portland, 11.09.2007 18:38

We learned this afternoon that the Sacramento County Jail has now cut off Eric's commissary. When they brought the inmates their weekly orders today, Eric's order was not delivered to him. He checked the lists to see if he had any money in his account, and his name was not even on the list. Since the jail stopped bringing Eric vegan meals, commissary was his only opportunity, however limited, to get a few more dietary essentials than what he pulls off his trays. Now the only food Eric will be receiving is the bread and fruit that he can pull from the trays they bring him. This blatant attack on Eric's health on the eve of his trial is an outrageous attempt to put his right to due process in jeopardy. Please act now - call the jail and demand that they begin feeding him vegan meals - again.
Jail: 916.874.6752
Please make sure that you have Eric's x-reference number handy in case they ask for it: x-2972521

And trial starts tomorrow. . . Please keep Eric in your hearts and minds as he begins this leg of his journey.



Unlocking The Darkness

Portland, 11.09.2007 18:38

In 2004, in Olympia, a few people materialized into a crowd, bolt cutters at their side. The fence was cut and pulled down. Beyond the fence lay a load of Strykers, ready to aid in the murdering of Iraqi's. Ready to barrel down streets, firing into houses and crowds, turning people into meat. Ready to run over children. The fence came down and then a few people ran forward, into the police. Those few people were taken down. The crowd remained where it was, standing behind an imaginary line. In 2006, in Olympia, the fence came down again. A few people ran in and were taken by the pigs. Others sat down down and went through agony while they were being arrested. The night before a fight to take down the fence lasted hours, numerous people disabled by pepper spray. Just as they did in 2004, the Strykers left Olympia for Iraq. The poor suckers stuck in them were torn to pieces. In 2007 a liberal, pacifist group began heavily pushing its agenda on those who did not wish to conform to it. When the Strykers came through Tacoma the response was minimal for the first week. People who did not want to sit idly by as the Strykers rolled through the port struggled to organize a large response on Friday night. Surrounded by hundreds of riot cops, the fence came down. Numerous people were shot with rubber bullets. The crowd left and headed towards one of the police blockades. Half the group pushed forward, on the verge of overtaking a police cruiser and pushing the line back. The other half sat down. Sang "Give Peace A Chance." And went through agony. Enveloped in tear gas, shot with rubber bullets, beaten with clubs, those following non-violent principles allowed themselves to be brutalized. Some people said we provoked the police, that our violence created violence. On Monday night no one pushed against the police. That night the police shot and gassed a completely non-violent crowd.
In Tacoma, in 2007, people were struggling against each other more than working together. It takes the willingness of multiple parties to cooperate. We have been willing in the past and we will be willing in the future. But other people have not, time and time again. The Strykers went right through the port. There was no chance of stopping them then, but a lot of the people there were not even trying. Do we want to stop the things we say we want to stop?



Craig Rosebraugh Lecture this Friday in Portland

Portland, 11.09.2007 18:38

Nationally recognized political activist and author, Craig Rosebraugh, is scheduled to give a public lecture at 7:00pm on Friday, September 14 at Laughing Horse Books (12 NE 10th Ave). Rosebraugh is best known for his role as the former national spokesperson for the radical Earth Liberation Front (ELF).

From 1997 through 2001, Rosebraugh was the primary spokesperson for the ELF, an underground environmental organization that inflicted well over $100 million in damages through arson and sabotage attacks against environmentally destructive companies. Despite the seizure of his computer equipment; multiple searches of his home, business and person; grand jury investigations; FBI questioning; death threats and facing years in prison, Rosebraugh did not reveal the identities of members of the ELF movement.

In February 2002, under force of subpoena, Rosebraugh appeared in front of US Congress in a House Resources Subcommittee Hearing on Eco-terrorism, where he invoked his Fifth Amendment rights to 54 of 56 questions. He did issue Congress a 12-page written testimony, charging the US Government with being "one of the worst terrorists in planetary history."

As Trial Begins, Supporters Concerned About Lack of Vegan Food for Eric McDavid

San Francisco Bay Area, 11.09.2007 02:39

On Sunday, September 9th, the day before Eric McDavid's trial began, Sacramento Prisoner Support learned that the Sacramento County Jail has cut off Eric's commissary. When he did not receive the items that he expected, Eric checked the jail's lists to see if he had any money in his account-- his name was not on the list. Since the jail stopped bringing Eric vegan meals, commissary was his only opportunity to get a few more dietary essentials beyond the fruit and bread that he receives in his meals.

San Diego: Trial Begins for Rod Coronado

Portland, 10.09.2007 23:38

Rod Coronado is being prosecuted by the federal government for a public speech he gave in 2003 in San Diego. During a question and answer period following the speech, he was asked about previous direct action he has taken in defense of animals and the environment. The government is employing a rarely used statute to prosecute Coronado that relies on the intent of the speaker to foment criminal activity.

Rod Coronado has been affiliated with many environmental and animal rights organizations, beginning with his work with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in the late 1980's. He stands as an effective and inspiring speaker and writer on the ecological crisis facing current society. Coronado served a 4 _ year sentence for destroying a fur farm in the 90's and more recently, was imprisoned for moving and setting off traps set to harm mountain lions in a wilderness area in Arizona.

The trial starts Monday, September 10, 2007, 9 am with jury selection.

Sacramento: First Week of Trial for Eric McDavid

From Sacramento Prisoner Support: "Trial starts on Monday! The first part of the morning will just be jury selection, but we WILL (more than likely) be doing opening arguments in the afternoon. The defense will present their case first- probably taking up the first week, and spilling over into the second. We might be done with argument around the 19th, but it might also spill over into the next week. Then the jury will deliberate... "

About Eric McDavid, from SupportEric.org: "Eric McDavid was arrested in Auburn, CA on January 13, 2006 as part of the government's ongoing Green Scare campaign. He now faces two decades in prison. [...] He was arrested along with Zachary Jenson and Lauren Weiner and all three were charged with "conspiracy to destroy property by means of fire or explosives." The government's case is based on the word of a single FBI informant who was paid over $75,000 to fabricate a crime and implicate the trio."

Urgent Action 9/10: McDavid is being denied both vegan food and commissary by the Sacramento Main Jail. Read more here.

Death of trans immigrant in detention forges united protests

Portland, 10.09.2007 18:38

Olga Arellano spoke at a rally at the Federal Building in downtown Los Angeles on Aug. 27 about how her 23-year-old daughter, Victoria, died July 20 at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) federal detention facility in South Los Angeles. "I can only find the strength to talk about this because I want people to know what is going on inside that place," Olga Arellano stated. "I don't want another family to have to live through this nightmare."

Authorities reportedly refused to give Victoria Arellano?an undocumented Mexican transwoman with AIDS?urgently needed medical attention and her critically necessary prescribed antibiotic, despite mass protests on her behalf by other immigrant detainees. Authorities had imprisoned her since May in a men's mass detention cell.

Outrage over Victoria Arellano's death is forging a coalition of organizations that fight for immigrant rights, AIDS care, and trans, lesbian, gay and bisexual rights. The bilingual Los Angeles vigil and media conference was called by Arellano's family and Bienestar?a Latina community service and advocacy organization working to meet the needs of people living with HIV/AIDS.



Audio File: September Bark Hike and Public Lands Protection Opportunities

Portland, 10.09.2007 18:38

September 9, 2007, the monthly Bark field trip hiked to an area outside Zig Zag in the Mt. Hood National Forest, checking out a bridge washed out last November and hiked part of the Ramona Falls trail. The U.S. Forest Service just finalized their Travel Planning Rule, which ignores any use but Off Highway Vehicles. They are proposing 6 large playgrounds for the OHVs; 55,000 acres of Mt. Hood that will be unsuitable for hiking, mountainbiking and horseriding access, not to mention the loss of wildlife habitat. This solution does not provide for enhanced enforcement, and also fails to consider our forestwide system of roads and watersheds currently threatened by these aging and unsupported roadways. Thousands of miles of roads are closed, but are used illegally by off roaders. Hundreds of culverts have become nonfunctioning after years of maintenance backlog, bringing increased sedimentation and chemical runoff into our drinking water, a perfect recipe for catastrophic landslides... dozens of campsites have become inaccessible by washouts on major roadways, taking sometimes years for the U.S.F.S. to prioritize repairs.

this week there will be two opportunities for two public testimony sessions on these issues, one here in Portland and the other in Hood River.

Tuesday, September 11 6pm-7:30pm

Actions in Auckland against NZ-US Partnership Forum

Aotearoa, 10.09.2007 07:09

Around 100 people marched down Queen Street to the Hilton Hotel to protest against the NZ-US Partnership Forum. The forum, which brings together representatives of the two governments as well as from major US and NZ corporations to work on tightening the economic and political links between the two nations, was moved in the last minute from the Auckland Museum to the Hilton Hotel.

The protests had begun earlier in the day with a picket at the road corner by approximately 20 people, during the time Prime Minister Helen Clark arrived at the forum. The main march began at Aotea Square at 12 noon, with protesters taking the street, setting off flares and chanting all the way to the Hilton. Upon arrival at the Forum venue, a stand-off began with the police. After a short period, a scuffle erupted when the police attempted to open one lane to allow vehicles to enter and exit the area, an attempt which succeeded despite some resistance from a number of people. Some time later the police made a decision to open the remaining lane and force the protesters onto the footpath behind plastic barriers. In the ensuing altercation, three people were arrested and several injured.

The protests highlighted a number of issues. Our World Is Not For Sale spokesperson Ryan Bodman stated that the results of a free trade agreement between the US and Australia have included "the degradation of environmental protection, particularly in relation to genetic engineering of food, the degredation of quarantine laws, an economic nightmare for small farmers and businesses, a huge increase in australia's trade defecit with the us, reduced access to affordable Australian pharmaceuticals and threats to australian manufacturing jobs." The same results and others can be expected if an NZ/US agreement is signed.

DSEi - arms fair ends in violence

United Kingdom, 09.09.2007 18:08

This week the world's largest arms fair returns to the ExCel Centre in East London during 11th-14th September. Defence Systems & Equipment International (DSEi) takes place every two years and in the past exhibitors have included companies selling cluster bombs and torture equipment. The future of DSEi is uncertain with the impending closure of the Defence Export Services Organisation (DESO) , a government department whose sole purpose is to supports arms sales, and the announcement by Reed-Elsevier that they intend to sell their arms fair business after sustained campaigning by many groups including magazines Reed publishes, most prominently The Lancet, which maintained that supporting arms fairs was not compatible with medical ethics.

Some affinity group actions have already taken place with Army recruitment adverts repurposed in Oxford, and a lock-on and weapons inspection at MSI in Norwich by Norfolk Campaign Against the Arms Trade.

On the eve of DSEi Jane's publishers are hosting a Defence Conference at a Mayfair hotel, which will be picketed by anti-arms protesters. For the first day of DSEi itself the Disarm DSEi campaign has called protesters to invade ExCel, and the Spacehijackers have announced that they will be auctioning a tank to protesters to level the odds. There will also be a Critical Mass ride to the arms fair.

Close to 300 years of an use of force which is starting to turn us into slaves and which it's still celebrated with national proud as the South America's Conquest, the application of the antiterrorism law and the border closing in African colonies by the highest responsibles of the spanish pseudo-democracy and -on the rebound- most of the institutions, parties and citizens.

EEUU en Canarias

Canarias, 09.09.2007 00:09

Vía Magec.Info El Gobierno de Estados Unidos se encuentra preparando el desplazamiento a Canarias de más de treintena capitalistas, inversores y representantes de empresas procedentes de ese país que, el próximo mes de noviembre, se reunirán con capitalistas de nuestro país para cerrar proyectos orientados orientados, principalmente, a la extracción de recursos de África, aunque aseguran que también a la materialización de posibles inversiones en el Archipiélago. La iniciativa del Ejecutivo estadounidense va en la línea de la estrategia del lobby imperialista Cámara de Comercio Americana en forma de diferentes encuentros de carácter político e institucional entre representantes de la burguesía colonial canaria y de EEUU. La versión del lobby es que existe capital norteamericano interesados en energía, biomedicina, tecnologías de la comunicación y logística de transporte. La embajada de EEUU en España y la Cámara de Comercio Americana en Canarias están definiendo ya la relación de sectores y capitalistas, así como realizando estudios de viabilidad económica y análisis de mercado para que, cuando la misión comercial se cierre y los encuentros con los capitalistas canarios se formalicen, las reuniones sean, prácticamente, para la firma de acuerdos. Según palabras del presidente de la Cámara de Comercio Americana en Canarias, Juan Verde, "hasta ahora hemos venido desarrollando encuentros que han servido para que Estados Unidos, que está inmerso en la puesta en marcha de iniciativas comerciales dirigidas hacia África, conozca Canarias y su potencial como plataforma hacia aquel continente. Ahora ha llegado el momento de materializar los proyectos eminentemente económicos". Desde la Cámara de Comercio Americana en Canarias se recuerda que la misión comercial de noviembre será la primera que llegue a nuestro país organizada desde el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos, aunque con anterioridad se desplazaron hasta nuestro Archipiélago un grupo de representantes en activo del Congreso de los EEUU. Asimismo, para Juan Verde fue importante que una persona como Ruth Davis señalara, en su visita de hace meses a las Islas que "Canarias es uno de los secretos mejor guardados de España para los Estados Unidos, y se encuentra en una posición única para jugar el papel de mediador entre empresas norteamericanas y el continente africano". Cabe recordar que Davis es asesora en materia de África para la Secretaría de Estado norteamericana y persona de confianza de Condolezza Rize, cuyas responsabilidades equivalen a las del Ministro de Asuntos Exteriores. Eso sitúa a este Archipiélago, según la Cámara norteamericana, en las mejores condiciones para favorecer la ejecución de la Ley Americana sobre el desarrollo y el comercio con África, texto legal a través del cual se gestionan todas las ayudas de cooperación desde el G8 y diferentes entidades multilaterales hacia dicho continente y que se cifran en torno a los 90.000 millones de euros. ::::RESPUESTA A UN MILITAR ESPAÑOL “BIEN-INTENCIONADO”::::



Activist arrested at Anarchist conference

Aotearoa, 08.09.2007 23:09

At 9.30am two police officers arrived at A Space Inside social centre, on Symonds Street, and arrested one activist for alleged breach of bail conditions, in relation to yesterday's demonstration against the detention of Iranian asylum seekers in Mt Eden prison.

They ventured into the stairwell and grabbed the young man. When other activists came to his aid the police pulled out their pepper spray and aggressively sprayed several people in the eyes. According to people present during the arrests the police did not have a warrant. The arrested activist was beaten by the cops once they got him outside the building and taken to the police station.

This weekend A Space Inside is hosting an Aotearoa wide anarchist conference.



&quot;(...)el cayuco está parado, la patrullera viene muy rápido, da un rodeo e impacta y lo rompe en dos, provocando el hundimiento.&quot;

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.

Asimismo, para Juan Verde fue importante que una persona como Ruth Davis señalara, en su visita de hace meses a las Islas que "Canarias es uno de los secretos mejor guardados de España para los Estados Unidos, y se encuentra en una posición única para jugar el papel de mediador entre empresas norteamericanas y el continente africano". Cabe recordar que Davis es asesora en materia de África para la Secretaría de Estado norteamericana y persona de confianza de Condolezza Rize, cuyas responsabilidades equivalen a las del Ministro de Asuntos Exteriores. Eso sitúa a este Archipiélago, según la Cámara norteamericana, en las mejores condiciones para favorecer la ejecución de la Ley Americana sobre el desarrollo y el comercio con África, texto legal a través del cual se gestionan todas las ayudas de cooperación desde el G8 y diferentes entidades multilaterales hacia dicho continente y que se cifran en torno a los 90.000 millones de euros. ::::RESPUESTA A UN MILITAR ESPAÑOL “BIEN-INTENCIONADO”::::

Second Anniversary of Fouad Kaady's Murder

Portland, 08.09.2007 21:38

Two long years have passed, since Fouad was cruelly murdered by agents of the fascist state. Justice is slowly grinding forward, but we grow impatient.
We need to see Officer William Bergin (Sandy Police) and Deputy David Willard (Clackamas County SO) squirm, and pay. I sincerely hope that famed Lawyer and advocate for the underdog, Gerry Spence, will seek personal punitive damages from these two murderers. Since the District Attorney and sheriff were unable to find any problems with their actions, so thoroughly reported here, and in the fine film, "28 Seconds, The Killing of Fouad Kaady" it is up to the civil court system to deliver at least some modicum of justice.
