Review of Derrick Jensen's Q&amp;A in Portland

Portland, 22.12.2007 23:38

Walking into the Disjecta, one could not help but feeling somewhat uncomfortable in the dark cold empty warehouse located underneath the Burnside bridge. But given the dire circumstances of the planet and the "times", it was also somewhat appropriate even in the holiday season. Looking out the west windows of the building, you could see the skate park under the bridge and hear the buzz of traffic. Despite asking $15 to $18 a head , a crowd of approximately 100 people filled one side of the warehouse. A representative for Disjecta informed everyone that this would be the last event at the warehouse and that we were really not supposed to be there and were essentially "squatting" on the property.



Ni democracia, ni libertad, ni justicia

Euskal Herria, 22.12.2007 21:39

Nuevo ejercicio de injusticia es lo que constituye la sentencia hecha p�blica tras el macrojuicio pol�tico contra las personas imputadas en el sumario 18/98. Diez a�os de sumario y juicio que han resultado en distintas condenas de prisi�n y econ�micas para 47 personas :

  • De 11 a 14 a�os de c�rcel para las condenadas por integraci�n en organizaci�n terrorista. (KAS, Ekin, Xaki)
  • De 9 a 10 a�os de c�rcel para las condenadas por colaboraci�n con organizaci�n terrorista (Fundaci�n Joxemi Zumalabe, Consejo de Administraci�n y subdirecci�n de Egin)
  • M�s de 1.700.000 euros por deuda con la Seguridad Social (adem�s de m�s prisi�n, para Jos� Luis Elkoro, Patxo e Isidro Murga y J.M. Zalakain)

Y por otro lado contin�an las detenciones de miembros de la mesa nacional de Batasuna y la habitual utilizaci�n pol�tico-medi�tica de la situaci�n de cara a las pr�ximas elecciones anunciadas para el 9 de marzo.

Lakota Sioux Indian representatives declared sovereign nation status on Wednesday, December 19th in Washington D.C. following Monday’s withdrawal from all previously signed treaties with the United States Government. The withdrawal, hand delivered to Daniel Turner, Deputy Director of Public Liaison at the State Department, immediately and irrevocably ends all agreements between the Lakota Sioux Nation of Indians and the United States Government outlined in the 1851 and 1868 Treaties at Fort Laramie, Wyoming.

“This is an historic day for our Lakota people,” declared Russell Means, Itacan of Lakota. “United States colonial rule is at its end!”

“Today is a historic day and our forefathers speak through us. Our Forefathers made the treaties in good faith with the sacred Canupa and with the knowledge of the Great Spirit,” shared Garry Rowland from Wounded Knee. “They never honored the treaties, that’s the reason we are here today.”

Three Senior Citizens Arrested at Impeachment Vigil

Portland, 21.12.2007 18:38

Three senior citizens were arrested in front of Representative Earl Blumenauer's office building on Thursday, December 20, the twenty-first week in a row that protestors have called for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. Sara Graham, Joe Walsh, also known as The Lone Vet and dressed as "Santa" and Marilyn Pike were arrested after police earnestly tried to convince the group to move.
The Lone Vet initiated the protests because he feels that it is the responsibility of American citizens to challenge the illegality of the Bush administration. "George Bush has caused me to be ashamed to be an American; Earl Blumenauer has caused me to be ashamed to be a democrat. We are willing to risk arrest to send a message that Bush is the one who should face a judge."



Lakota Seceed from USA

Portland, 21.12.2007 18:38

The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States, leaders said Wednesday.

"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us," long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means told a handful of reporters and a delegation from the Bolivian embassy, gathered in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a news conference.

A delegation of Lakota leaders delivered a message to the State Department on Monday, announcing they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States, some of them more than 150 years old.



Multnomah County Jails: Problems go way beyond Bernie, Grand Jury a whitewash.

Portland, 21.12.2007 18:38

Each year, a special grand jury is chosen to "investigate" the Multnomah County jail system. And every year, it turns out to be nothing more than shameless, symbolic politics. This year's report from the grand jury promises to be no different. It's not the fault of the jury, either. It's the system itself.

Today, the Multnomah County grand jury wound up months of work related to a sadly foregone conclusion. Jurors were presented with mountains of documents, and entertained by parades of "experts" to expound on the minute details of obscure financial improprieties. Many of the jurors were completely unaware of just how tightly controlled the whole proceeding was, or just how much information was never presented at all.

Jailed Benton Harbor Community Activist Retaliates With Hunger Strike

Chicago, 21.12.2007 04:08

Reverend Edward Pinkney is a longtime political activist in the nearby Michigan community of Benton Harbor. In an effort to combat waterfront gentrification, Pinkney had successfully led a recall effort against a corrupt Benton Harbor official. But the city fought back by charging Pinkney with voter fraud under an overbroad state law, and placed Pinkney on probation and under house arrest.

On December 13, Pinkney was charged again for violating his probation. The reason: he openly criticized the judge who sentenced him on dubious grounds. Pinkney has now been forced into jail, but has now responded back with a hunger strike which has now extended into a week. Read more

Editorial Cartoon: This Holiday Season, Remember The Missing!

DC, 21.12.2007 03:09

And so, another year has gone, and it's fitting, I think, for us to remember The Missing, the MIAs. At every challenge to the Constitution and Liberty, The Missing were…MIA. When the time came to stand and fight for what was right, the MIAs were Missing, but not forgotten. Even today, with Peace and Freedom on attack from all sides, you can count on The Missing to be…MIAs. So, now, let us pause and Remember The Missing.

Rod stated in an open letter that "hopefully this plea agreement will once and for all grant me closure in a well-known campaign of repression against me for my past involvement, association and support for covert campaigns against environmental destroyers and animal abusers..."
