Bristol's 'Don't Attack Iran' March: Saturday 24th November

Bristol, 12.11.2007 10:07

"George Bush, when threatening Iran, talks of the spectre of 'World War III'..." "George Bush, when threatening Iran, talks of the spectre of 'World War III'..." Bristol Stop The War Coalition write: It's time for Bristol's very own demonstration against the threats by the USA (backed by Britain) to Iran. Please circulate these details as widely as possible. George Bush, when threatening Iran, talks of the spectre of "World War III". Until now, a US/Israeli military strike on Iran seemed a dangerous possibility. Now it has become an imminent reality. Public opinion was softened up for the attack on Iraq in 2003 by the now totally discredited accusations of weapons of mass destruction and terrorism. The same accusations are now being re-cycled to justify an attack on Iran. British troops, at the request of the US military, have been sent to the Iranian border to provide a false legitimacy to a US attack on Iran. The International Atomic Energy Agency has found no evidence of a nuclear weapons programme in Iran. British Foreign Minister, David Miliband, and Defence Minister, Des Browne, admit there is no evidence of Iranian involvement in the violence and instability in Iraq and Afghanistan....Come and join us on Saturday 24th November. Assemble at 12 noon in Castle Park (by the bandstand).

Cosco Busan Spills 58,000 Gallons of Fuel Oil into Bay

San Francisco Bay Area, 10.11.2007 20:08

The November 7th spill of bunker fuel from the Cosco Busan, South Korea-bound container ship, is shaping up to be much more serious than early reports indicated and appears to be the worst ship-related spill in more than a decade. The Coast Guard estimates that over 58,000 gallons of fuel were spilled from the accident. Only a fraction of those gallons of fuel have been contained thus far. San Francisco Baykeeper is investigating why initial reports underestimated the size of the spill and why the Coast Guard failed to immediately coordinate its response with the Office of Spill Prevention and Response.

Olympia activists stand firm against continued military shipments through Port

Portland, 10.11.2007 15:38

On Monday November 5 of this year, the USNS Brittin arrived at the Port of Olympia with equipment from the 3rd Stryker Brigade returning from that same deployment in Iraq. The troops of the Brigade had returned to Fort Lewis about 2 weeks previous, minus 48 of their fellow soldiers who had died from injuries sustained in Iraq.

OlyPMR blocked several convoys of Strykers beginning the evening of November 7, continuing into the morning. Dozens of protesters blocked the road with their bodies as one convoy after another attempted to exit the Port of Olympia. In each case the convoys eventually passed, but only after police shoved protesters, striking many with batons and dragging them from the road in order to clear the way.

Late Friday afternoon [11/10/07], approximately 50 members of Olympia Port Militarization Resistance (OlyPMR) sat down near the main gate of the Port of Olympia in Washington State. Two tractor trailers, one carrying two Stryker combat vehicles, another filled with military cargo, were blocked from exiting the port. Police arrived on the scene and after failing to persuade the demonstrators to allow one truck through, ceded control of the entrance.

Civil disobedience and other actions at the Port of Olympia are expected to continue as anti-war activists have declared their commitment to ongoing resistance.



Eric McDavid is Now on Hunger Strike - Your Help Needed!

Portland, 10.11.2007 15:38

Eric called this evening with an update on his medical condition. At 8:00
this evening he was called out to talk to a sargeant who discussed his
medical situation with him. After this conversation, the sargeant sent
Eric back to medical to be seen by a doctor. The doctor (a different
doctor than the one he saw earlier in the day) took his vitals and
acknowledged that he had pericarditis in the spring. She asked him if this
felt like the same thing, and Eric said that it did. The doctor said she
would request that blood work, an ECG, and an x-ray be done - but more
than likely none of this will happen until after the holiday weekend (on
Tuesday). She also went over with him the medication he received in the
past and said she would put in a request that he begin receiving it again.
Eric received medication at around 9:30 this evening. When Eric tried to
discuss the cause of the pericarditis (more than likely, his diet) the
doctor was evasive and sent him back to his cell.
