Ashland Daily Tidings Supports Racism &amp; Hate!

Rogue Valley, 05.12.2007 18:09

Rupert Murdoch owned rag goes over the line- Ashland, Oregon's local newspaper supports racism and hate speech. Editor Scot Bolsinger is shameless yet has personal responsibility for the horrible hate which is harbored by this poor example of so-called journalism. The Tidings has stooped to a new low. The paper that has been spiraling downward ever since combining with the only other daily paper in the Rogue Valley, the Medford Mail Tribune. How do you say monopoly? Lack of real news has been replaced with this disgusting cesspool of hate.

Look Hate in the face and see what you think. Examples follow...

Beim Referendum über die Verfassungsreform hat die Opposition mit dem "Nein" knapp gewonnen. Das ist zwar eine Niederlage für Präsident Chávez, jedoch keinesfalls ein Sieg der Opposition. Die bolivarianische Revolution geht weiter.

When it comes to commercial media, “there’s no place like home”

London, Ontario, 05.12.2007 17:37

Many of the arguments put forth by the IMC about the commercial media are understood and considered common knowlege, but the other side in the debate never tends to be heard. How do the commercial media view themselves? How do they respond to the direct accusations from the IMC? This article is a smaller version of a longer piece I am currently writing. I have to resolve my own opinions about how Sandra Thom of Rogers Television and Jeff Keay of the CBC argued their position before I can offer my own critical perspective. For the moment, this is the commercial view.

Activists Open 10 Year-Old Roadblock, Again

Boston, 05.12.2007 16:08

Israeli and international solidarity activists from the Palestine Solidarity Project joined Palestinians from Beit Ommar, Surif, Al-Jab’a, and Hebron as they moved the massive interlocking cement blocks and boulders, opening a space for Palestinian vehicles to pass through. PSP has organized actions at this roadblock a number of times in the past year, in defiance of the IOF’s attempts to control Palestinian freedom of movement.

Bristol Labour's Donor Questions

Bristol, 05.12.2007 16:07

Issues arrise over £10,000 from Unincorporated Association Bristol Labour's Donor Questions: Issues arise over £10,000 from Unincorporated Association Following donor scandals at a national level for the Labour Party, it seems the Bristol party is being asked tough questions about funding too...The Bristol Blogger writes: While leafing through the Electoral Commission’s register of donations to political parties we find a most unusual couple of entries. It seems that the Bristol Labour Group - an unincorporated association registered at the Council House - made two donations amounting to exactly £10,000 to the Bristol North West Constituency Labour Party this year. Due to boundary changes, the Bristol North West seat, currently held by Labour’s Doug Naysmith, is likely to be a marginal seat at the next election and the Tories appear to be throwing considerable resources into the area for their well-connected parliamentary candidate Charlotte Leslie. Now it seems the Labour Party are doing the same for their London-based Oxbridge lawyer candidate, Lambeth councillor Sam Townend (Blogger Passim). No problem there really. If the Tories have the mysterious Lord Ashcroft throwing money at marginals why shouldn’t Labour do the same? Well the difference is, although we might not like it, at least we know who the Tories' money has come from. We don’t with this Labour donation. As an unincorporated association, the Bristol Labour Group - which presumably consists of Bristol’s Labour councillors - does not have to present any public accounts. We therefore have no way of knowing the origin of this £10,000. Hardly the best example of Helen’s Holland’s new “open and transparent” regime is it?

Coos County Makes Recommendations AGAINST LNG!

Portland, 05.12.2007 12:08

In a suprising turn of events, a Coos County's hearings officer recommended that the land use application for the Jordan Cove LNG terminal be rejected. She previously recommended that a second application for a different part of the project be approved. Her decision could mark a turning of the tide in the fight against LNG in Southern Oregon.

Public comment was skewed 10 to 1 in opposition to the project during hearings in September in Coquille. Citizens Against LNG, Umpqua Watersheds, Friends of Living Oregon Waters (FLOW), the Southern Oregon Pipeline Information Project, Oregon Shores, and Sierra Club all worked to persuade the hearings officer that the project was a threat to the public safety, economy, and environment of the Coos Bay Area.

Davant els tancaments patronals : Ni un pas enrera!

Manifestació unitària+Festa reivindicativa. 2 des.11h Pl. Sant Jaume

Deslocalitzacions, tancaments d´empreses, acomiadaments, precarietat laboral, pèrdua de drets laborals aconseguits desprès de tants anys de lluita. Ens diuen que res podem fer, que la globalització és això, que solament ens queda pactar i acceptar els xantatges, les reduccions de plantilla, dels salaris, etc. Darrera dels acomiadaments de la Seat, Mercedes Benz, Sysmo o Frape Behr s´amaga la voracitat d'unes multinacionals que no deixen de generar beneficis a uns pocs condemnant a la classe treballadora a la precarietat més absulta acomiadant a milers de treballadors i treballadores deixant a famílies senceres al carrer.

La resposta de les plantilles d´aquestes empreses és contundent davant les agressions de la patronal. Ja fa un temps que es mobilitzen de forma unitària organitzant concentracions, vagues etc per la defensa dels seus llocs de treball, per mantenir les condicions laborals i impedir que s'especuli amb els terrenys.

Deslocalizaciones, cierres de empresas, despidos, precariedad laboral, pérdida de derechos laborales conseguidos tras tantos años de lucha. Nos dicen que no podemos hacer nada, que la globalización es esto, que sólo podemos pactar y aceptar los chantajes, las reducciones de plantilla, de los salarios, etc. Detrás de los despidos de Seat, Mercedes Benz, Sysmo o Frape Behr se esconde la voracidad de unas multinacionales que no dejan de generar beneficios para unos pocos condenando a la clase trabajadora a la precariedad más absoluta despidiendo a miles de trabajadores y trabajadoras dejando a familias enteras en la calle.

La respuesta de las plantillas de estas empresas es contundente frente a las agresiones de la patronal. Ya hace un tiempo que se movilizan de forma unitaria organizando concentraciones, vagas, etc. por la defensa de sus puestos de trabajo, pro mantener las condiciones laborales e impedir que se especule con los terrenos.

Heavy Handed Police Condemned Over Peaceful Protest

United Kingdom, 05.12.2007 07:09

Nottinghamshire Police have been condemned for their heavy handed dealing with a peaceful protest which took place at Nottingham University. The protest, which was organized by students, occurred outside the Hallward Library on the University Park Campus, to raise awareness about the Israeli West Bank barrier, aka 'the wall'. A mock wall was constructed and spray-painted with slogans and images.

After Nottingham Uni security failed to 'apprehend' the situation, the police were called. This resulted in the threat of arrest to a number of students. For 'breach of the peace', 'assaulting a police officer', 'filming a police officer'(!), obstructing a police officer and obstruction of the highway. One student was arrested to 'apprehend a breach of the peace'. The wall was dismantled (rather symbolic given the context) and moved on after about half an hour.

Adalah-NY Responds to Leviev, Plans Additional Protest

NYC, 04.12.2007 13:38

“Leviev claims that we are ignorant of his activities. We know that he is destroying West Bank Palestinian communities like Bil’in and Jayyous with the Israeli settlements his companies are building,” said Ethan Heitner of Adalah-NY. “The five settlements where he has built homes threaten to derail the negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians that started in Annapolis last week. They carve the West Bank into disconnected enclaves, seize valuable resources, and isolate Jerusalem, rendering the creation of a viable Palestinian state impossible. Leviev’s philanthropy in other parts of the world is small compensation for his contribution to inflaming arguably the world’s most important political conflict.”

By a margin of 1.4 percent, the forces of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez lost a December 2 vote on a referendum of social programs that also would have lifted term limits for the presidency. The United States reportedly spent $8 million dollars to sway the vote, and a CIA document uncovered by the Chavistas spelled out a thorough program of psy-ops and destabilization.

Free Trade: Do Smith &amp; Wyden support Oregon workers?

Rogue Valley, 04.12.2007 04:08

Peru Free Trade Agreement threatens jobs

The U.S.-Peru Free Trade Agreement, if passed in the Senate, would offshore even more Oregon jobs while accelerating poverty in Peru. One might call the Peru Trade Agreement a lose-lose for American and Peruvian workers.

We have seen Congressman Walden vote against Oregon worker interests and soon we will see where Senators Smith and Wyden stand. Perhaps readers have an opinion for the senators (Smith, 503-326-3386; Wyden, 503-326-7525).

Another Fox Tower, But No Due Process

Portland, 03.12.2007 21:38

Moyer Tower, bigger than Fox Tower and only a block away, is getting no due process from the Design Commission.

The Moyer Tower project was presented to the public from the get-go, not as a project proposal in process, but as a fait accompli. The message to the public: "This is a done deal. Stay away."
This proposed 35-story immensity, bulkier than Fox Tower and just a block away, has huge impacts and issues that deserve an honest process. One developer, who has already stamped a footprint upon midtown like no one else, wants to use dubious FAR-transfer stratagems to grab another four million cubic feet of midtown airspace. He, and a submissive Commission, want to do this with only a restricted and perfunctory affectation of a real due-process. His so-called land-use review is held as an afterthought, following a design review. That's doing the process backwards.

Mr. Moyer, there is a civic dimension to all of this that you ignore. You think you are so magnanimous for donating Block 5 to the city for a park, but we notice that you have built a profitable six-level parking lot under it, that you have tried to put a big upscale restaurant on the surface of it, and that now you want to steal the air space over it in order to erect another oppressive skyscraper next to it.

Next Land-use hearing: December 6,
Be there and protest!
