50-Shot Cops Duck Jury Trial in Sean Bell Case (Indypendent)

NYC, 03.02.2008 23:08

More than a year after Sean Bell was killed by a barrage of police bullets on the night before his wedding, the chance for justice in his case remain uncertain. After a 10-minute hearing on Jan. 25, State Supreme Court Judge Arthur Cooperman agreed to a request by the three police officers indicted in Bell’s shooting to hold a bench trial in their case, sparing them from having to face a jury trial. The decision came just two days after an appeals court turned down a request by defense lawyers to move the trial outside of New York City.

February 6 Rally in Salem: NO LNG in Oregon!

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?

Statewide Call to Action
No LNG in Oregon!
Wednesday, February 6
11 AM to 2 PM
Capitol Steps, Salem

Skillshare: Radical Botany: Plant Identification and Miner's Lettuce

Portland, 03.02.2008 06:53

I once lived in the Coast Range of Oregon. I had a farm with a large garden and a few fruit trees. My children and I were happy there. My farm was surrounded by land owned by a family who made their living harvesting forests. They used the most terrible type of tree extraction - clearcutting. About a year after I moved onto my property, the family decided to clearcut the forest just above my farm. I could hear the chainsaws take down the forest. It was a sad time for me. I loved that forest above me. It was diverse: Douglas fir, red alder, a wonderful array of wild native berry plants, ferns, and many herbs and wild flowers lived in that place. My children and I had identified three types of wild orchids in that forest: Fairyslipper (Calypso bulbosa) Mountain Lady Slipper (Cypripedium montanum) and Western Coralroot (Corallorhiza maculate).

One afternoon a year after the extraction of the forest I walked up the mountain to see what damage had been done. My heart was broken. I kneeled on the ground with my hands over my face. I saw a land that had been broken.

I did not go back up that mountain for another month. It was late spring when I sat in the muddy field of the clearcut. I looked around. I did not see anything unusual. I closed my eyes and asked for healing. I opened my eyes. I saw not far from the outer edge of the clearcut a bright green plant. I went to it. It was beautiful with waxy round leaves and a little white flower attached to a stem that shot up through the leaf. I sat for a long time and observed how it seemed to be spreading all around the edges of the wounded earth. It seemed to be creeping from the darker edges of the forest.

I took a sample of the plant to a local native plant lady and she identified it as Miner's Lettuce. She told me the story of how the plant was supposedly named by Miners who were suffering from scurvy and were able to find this plant, where hardly anything else grew, including in piles of mine tailings. They ate the plant and felt very much better. My friend called the plant a major healer of the earth. Where ever it grew there was work to be done. It grew heartily along abandoned logging roads, in clearcuts, and in other disturbed areas.



Police Surveillance at the Farmers Market Drum Circle

Santa Cruz, CA, 03.02.2008 06:52

Perched in the stairwell of the UCSC extension building, Santa Cruz police were filming the drum circle and Food Not Bombs at the Farmers' Market on January 30th, presumably with regards to the new "15 minute parking lot rule." The filming was interrupted when a man began waving a "Don't Tread On Me" flag in front of the camera. After being blocked by the flag for several minutes and being observed by a growing crowd, the officer left the building and waved to the camera.

Officer William Bergin: Killer, Liar, Perpetrator, Convicted Criminal

Portland, 02.02.2008 06:38

On March 8th, 2007, a year and a half after he gunned down Fouad Kaady in the streets of Sandy, officer William Bergin had another kind of showdown, in another kind of town... A town where police officers are not so quick on the trigger, and not so shy on the truth.

Bergin, a violent and angry man, showed up at the home of his former girlfriend, in the wee hours of the morning, around 3am. He was drunk, he was frightening, and he was despicable. His ex girlfriend was terrified. With a shaking voice, she called the Sherwood police in tears, requesting assistance. When the police arrived at her home, they found the drunk and belligerent Bergin, and arrested him. He was charged with DUI, and taken downtown. So far as I know, despite the presence of intoxicants in his system, and despite his bizarre behavior, no one tasered him, and no one shot him. Apparently, Sherwood is a more enlightened town than Sandy.

Domestic violence is an enormous problem among police officers. Sometimes, this epidemic of violence makes the news, as when Tacoma police chief David Brame shot his estranged wife and himself in front of their two small children in 2003. Usually, however, this abuse is shrouded in secrecy. As Bergin's abuse has been, until now.It's a very serious breach of the public trust when an officer who has been a perpetrator of domestic violence is allowed to continue to work in a position of authority, carrying a badge and a gun. How are we to expect him to react when he is expected to respond to a domestic violence call? Will he take the crime seriously? Or will he identify with the perpetrator?

Audio: Washington House Committee approved resolution to roll back media consolidation

Portland, 02.02.2008 03:38

In Olympia this week, a Washington State House Committee approved a resolution asking Congress to roll back the FCC's recent deregulation of media ownership rules. At issue is a controversial FCC decision last December to allow media companies to control both a city's newspaper and TV/radio stations, in the 20 largest markets. The decision flies in the face of overwhelming opposition expressed by the thousands of people who testified against media consolidation at six public hearings, hundreds of thousands of comments submitted to the FCC, and an impressively bipartisan range of elected officials.

The FCC's final public hearing on the issue was held in Seattle on Nov 9. Despite having less than a week's notice of the hearing date, over 1100 people turned out to testify at the nine-hour marathon hearing.

This week, the Washington State House Committee on Technology, Energy and Communications unanimously endorsed a resolution urging Congress to enact the Media Ownership Act, a bill which would retroactively repeal the FCC's December ruling, and impose stronger public accountability requirements on future FCC decisions.

Monday 4th February 2008, 8.30pm at the Cube Cinema, Stokes Croft, Bristol Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.) - Tonight's film night looks at Haiti: A French and Creole speaking Latin American country located in the Greater Antilles archipelago on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. It has a rousing history, having overthrown slavery via a mass revolution in the 1790s yet today it is the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation. We planned to show 'Aristide And The Endless Revolution', however due to postage issues with our copy of the DVD arriving, we will either show that or another acclaimed documentary about Haiti; The Agronomist (directed by Jonathan Demme) follows the life of Jean Dominique, who ran the Haiti's first independent radio station, Radio Haiti-Inter, during multiple repressive regimes.

Hundreds Brave Chicago Blizzard To Protest For Palestine

Chicago, 01.02.2008 07:39

Despite bitter cold and blizzard conditions, hundreds of concerned citizens rallied on January 29 in front of the Lakefront Theater on Chicago's Broadway Avenue to protest a benefit for Friends of the Israel Defense Force.

The protest — which included many Chicago-area Palestinian, Arab-American, and progressive Jews — considerably outnumbered the meager IDF turnout and counter-demonstration.

The protesters called an end to the latest Israeli siege of the Gaza Strip, which forced more than 500,000 Palestinians beyond the border into Egypt desperate for food and supplies, and has been referred to as "the biggest prison break in history."

The Politics of Rage

Aotearoa, 01.02.2008 04:42

Workers Party Forum: The politics of Rage Against the Machine Tuesday February 5, 6pm @ Trades Hall, 147 Great North Road, Grey Lynn, Auckland Rage Against the Machine, the world’s most popular anti-capitalist band, recently headlined the Big Day Out. At this concert the Workers Party signed up 109 new members. This presentation will explore the politics of Rage by assessing the band’s lyrics and also tracing the progressive causes and revolutionary organisations that the band has supported both financially and through other means such as inclusion on album covers, press releases, benefit gigs etc. More Rage have been strong supporters of the Zapatistas , whose struggle for justice for the Mayan indigenous people of Chiapas, Mexico, has gained international attention since their uprising on New Year's day 1994 against the hugely unjust North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The band has also, both financially and lyrically, supported the campaigns to free US political prisoners such as Leonard Peltier , an American Indian Movement (AIM) member, and Mumia Abu-Jamal , a former Black Panther. The song 'Freedom' tells Peltier's story. Music Video: 'Freedom' In January 2000 Rage defied a ban, imposed by New York City authorities, to play a free concert on Wall Street, the heart of the US Stock Exchange. The concert shut down the Stock Exchange in the middle of the trading day. Music Video: 'Sleep Now in the Fire' Video: Rage live at Auckland BDO: 1, 2, 3| Raging Against the System

Bank Pressured to Call Off House Eviction: Negotiations Planned

Boston, 01.02.2008 00:06

In response to the new eviction order against Melonie Griffiths-Evans and her 3 children, City Life and the Bank Tenant Association again began to organize an “eviction blockade”, where the crowd would surround the building to stop the eviction. Last week a crowd of about 75 protesters caused the bank to back off from the planned eviction. Activists had hoped for negotiations and were disappointed when Melonie received another notice from the constable that a new eviction attempt would be made tomorrow, Friday, February 1. As the new blockade organizing went on and press advisories were issued, city councilors Chuck Turner and Sam Yoon were also reaching out to Ocwen Financial Corporation, urging a solution. These combined efforts bore fruit when Ocwen decided to call off the eviction. Ocwen further agreed to set up some discussions with Melonie Griffiths-Evans involving a non-profit mortgage counseling group known as ESAC, based in Jamaica Plain.
