Feb 5th: Court Date in Lawsuit Challenging Seattle's Parade Ordinance

Seattle, 25.01.2008 05:45

The Seattle Affiliate of the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality is pursuing a lawsuit (with representation through the ACLU of Washington) challenging the constitutionality of the City of Seattle's Parade Ordinance as a result of Seattle Police's "on the spot" rescindment of its permit to march in the streets on October 22, 2003.

A ruling in this case will likely have an impact on all groups that organize public demonstrations in Seattle. Some (but not all) groups have been required to show proof of insurance of up to one million dollars to obtain permits for protected-speech events. Oral arguments before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, as part of a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the City of Seattle's Parade Ordinance, are scheduled to be heard Tuesday, February 5, 2008 sometime after 9:30am at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, 1200 6th Ave, 21st Floor (in the Park Place building, between University St & Seneca St in downtown Seattle).

NLG: Attorney for Judi Bari to Introduce the Film &quot;Forest Through the Tree's&quot; on Friday Night

Portland, 25.01.2008 04:39

Judi Bari was an Earth First! organizer who was one of the first to place as much importance on the legacy and future of the trees as she did on timber workers' lives and families. But that strategic relationship was too much of a threat. Her car was bombed in 1990, and three hours later, she was arrested as a terrorist--charges that were later dropped. Convinced it was a ploy by the FBI to discredit her and Earth First!, Judi decided to sue. Sadly, Judi died of breast cancer before the litigation ended. She remains an inspiration to generations of activists.

The Forest for the Trees is an intimate, behind-the scenes look at an unlikely team of young activists and old lefties who come together to battle the U.S. government. Filmmaker Bernadine Mellis is the daughter of civil rights lawyer Dennis Cunningham, who started out his career representing the Black Panthers and the Weathermen. Ben Rosenfeld, attorney on the Judi Bari v. FBI legal team will introduce the film and take questions afterwards.

People of Color Face Historic Wealth Loss

Portland, 24.01.2008 19:39

The subprime lending debacle should cause massive rethinking among those who have long proclaimed that the route to Black equality is through wealth accumulation. In a report titled, "Foreclosed: State of the Dream 2008," United for a Fair Economy details the catastrophic losses inflicted on Blacks and Latinos in the U.S. at the hands of predatory lenders - "the greatest loss of wealth to people of color in modern U.S. history." With more than half of Blacks in many cities caught in the subprime trap - and with even these usurious financing schemes disappearing in the wake of the bubble-burst - the prospects for Blacks to amass wealth have grown bleaker than at any time in living memory. At the current rate, it will take 5,423 years for Blacks to achieve homeowner parity with whites.

The money-lenders have already sucked the value out of whole communities, urban and suburban. The wealth loss is staggering: People of color have collectively lost between "$164 billion to $213 billion over the past eight years," with Latinos losing slightly more than African Americans. For the average American, wealth is passed on through the value of homes. That dream, as the report concludes, has been largely foreclosed.



DNC Deputizing Store Owners

Portland, 24.01.2008 19:39

On Wednesday, February 6 the House Judiciary Committee will consider House Bill 1066, sponsored by State Representative Cory Gardner (R-63). This "Castle Doctrine" legislation would extend self-defense protections beyond the home to include businesses.

The bill would grant civil and criminal immunity to a business owner if the business owner used lethal force against anybody who they had reason to believe would be committing a crime in their store. Take this scenario:

You're peacefully protesting the DNC and you go into a local coffeeshop to get some coffee. Since there are other, more violent protesters in the area, the shopkeeper shoots you and kills you. The shopkeeper gets off scotch free. He can't be sued or put in jail because he had reason to believe you might commit a crime. This is collective punishment. Even if you had planned on shoplifting, should you really be killed for it?

Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectively urge them to stop HB1066. The DNC protesters will have enough to risk with the cops, we don't need a vigilante business-owner militia running around and shooting them. The NRA has asked their Colorado members to call in support of this bill; we must stop them.



Bristolians Call for Gaza Solidarity

Bristol, 24.01.2008 18:08

Demonstration in Bristol Friday 25th January Demonstration in Bristol Friday 25th January Edward Hill writes: Demonstration in Bristol Friday 25th January. Meet 2pm at Roman Road Mosque, off St Marks Road, Easton. March to rally on College Green central Bristol. Then join Peace Vigil on the Centre 5.30 - 6.30pm. The sanctions imposed on Gaza are causing shortages in food, fuel and medications. Many patients are in urgent need of medical supplies. The living conditions are deteriorating rapidly and driving the population into desperation. The Israeli occupiers are treating Gaza and its population as a "Hostile Entity". This declaration can be used as an excuse to flex their military power and bring more destruction upon the Palestinians.

Blockade to Stop Sub-Prime Loan Home Eviction

Boston, 24.01.2008 17:09

Boston, MA - Yesterday, community activists and supporters rallied in front of Melonie Griffiths-Evens Dorchester home to physically block an eviction by US Bank. Like thousands of others in Boston and across the country she is facing foreclosed as a result of sub-prime predatory loans. The eviction was called off because of this protest leaving her and her three children in their house but some 1500 other local families still face a similar situation. The organization City Life/Vida Urbana plans to continue fighting evictions.

February 6 Rally in Salem: NO LNG in Oregon!

Portland, 24.01.2008 04:38

Why should you care about this?

There are 3 LNG projects proposed for the Oregon coast.If even one should get built, it will increase Oregon's greenhouse gas emissions by millions of tons per year. These projects will cost billions, money that could be spent on clean, renewable energy. The terminals and pipelines linking them to California will endanger communities, cross and condemn hundreds of miles of land, and destroy habitat. LNG is not needed in Oregon; even the Governor admits that most of the gas is going out of state. Ask yourself: Why is Oregon being chosen for an LNG that will go to California?

No LNG in Oregon"

Assassinating the Image and Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

DC, 23.01.2008 05:09

January of every year we are encouraged to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King even as such celebration occurs over the assassinated image of an assassinated man. As Vincent Harding noted, quoting a poem by Carl Wendell Himes, Jr., "Dead men make such convenient heroes: They cannot rise to challenge the images we would fashion from their lives." Harding's extension of this to his own work on King, An Inconvenient Hero, summarizes perfectly the position King must hold today. His popularity must be used to testify against his living legacy, his life's struggle, and both the reasoning and people behind his assassination. While his name is evoked each year, and at times of heightened political activity even more so, this reference comes specifically to recast a revolutionary into one comfortable with current and false notions of "progress" or "change." Barak Obama borrows his oratorical flare (attempts at least) with none of his politics and Hillary Clinton misuses his legacy to give undo credit to the executive branch for a movement's struggle for equality while simultaneously suggesting that King himself saw president Johnson's signing of Civil Rights legislation as completion of victory and liberation. He most certainly did not. All this, of course, occurs while electoral political efforts to carry out King's plan (his dream had long since been considered by King himself to be a "nightmare") are summarily ignored by mass media popular and "progressive" alike.
