Community discussion- local sustainability group wants advice- Friday 29th

Portland, 27.02.2008 21:38

The Social Permaculture Advocacy Collective is hosting a community discussion on whether or not it needs a nonprofit status to accomplish its goals- first and foremost to assemble a library, study and meeting place. What is the S. P. A. C.? It's a new collective based in Portland, interested in researching what REAL sustainability will look like and then making it happen- not "going green," buying energy efficient light bulbs, but replacing civilization itself with community, equality & sustainability; learning how we as the descendants of imperialism can take responsibility for our and our ancestors wrongdoings on this land.

The S.P.A.C. wants to do a number of things, like assemble a library and host free workshops dealing with how we as inhabitants of an increasingly degraded ecosystem and social environment can learn to change our behavior in order to stop destroying nature and in order to survive without civilization.

Vultures hovering over Cuba after Fidel Castro steps down

Portland, 27.02.2008 19:38

On Tuesday, February 19, Fidel Castro announced he was resigning his position as President of Cuba. This comes 19 months after Castro underwent stomach surgery. In fact he has not been in public since then. The media coverage since Castro announced his retirement has been sickening. No mention of the real social gains of the revolution, but plenty of talk about brutal dictatorship and so on.

Immediately upon hearing of Castro's retirement, George W. Bush announced that this should begin a democratic transition and that, "Eventually this transition ought to lead to free and fair elections. And I mean free and I mean fair." He added that, "The United States will help the people of Cuba realize the blessings of liberty." The blessings of liberty indeed! We may ask whether he is referring to the kind of blessings bestowed on the Iraqi or Afghan people.

The hypocrisy of the man has no limits. Everyone knows that irregularities took place when Bush was elected, so he has no authority to give lessons on democracy to anyone. Furthermore, the recent elections in Pakistan witnessed blatant vote rigging, which we can be sure was organised with the help and advice of US "experts".

Karlsruhe: Schallende Ohrfeige für den Überwachungsstaat

Germany, 27.02.2008 10:39

(Karlsruhe) Am 27.02.2008 hat das Bundesverfassungsgericht, wie von vielen Kritikern erhofft, die Wünsche der Überwacher negiert. Das Gericht hat für die heimlichen Onlinedurchsuchungen hohe Hürden gestellt. So bedarf es einer Gefährdung eines übergeordneten Rechtsgutes wie etwa Menschenleben oder die Existenz des Staates um eine solche Maßnahme zu rechtfertigen. Ob es tatsächlich hinreichende Belege für eine solche Gefährdung gibt wird durch Richtervorbehalt entschieden.

WEDS: Clackamas Co. to hold hearing on Use of Deadly Force

Portland, 26.02.2008 23:38

ALERT: Public hearing on Wednesday re: the use of deadly force in Clackamas County. The hearing begins at 5:30 pm in Courtroom 5 of the Clackamas County Courthouse, 807 Main Str., Oregon City.


The hearing will be held by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and will address the county's draft of a new policy re: the use of deadly force. According to the O, the new policy was drafted "to satisfy a 2007 state law aiming to bring uniformity and fairness to the processes following a police shooting."

Draft copies of the plan will be available at the hearing and afterward at: www.clackamas.us/sheriff. A two week public commenting period follows.

Police use of deadly force accounted for 40% of the homicides in Clackamas County in 2005, the year Fouad Kaady was gunned down so cruelly and needlessly. Since June of last year, Clackamas Co. deputies have been involved in 3 lethal force cases. To my knowledge, every officer involved in a lethal force case in Clackamas County has been cleared of wrong doing by secret grand juries.

Direct Action to Stop the War Protests on Iraq War Anniversary

San Francisco Bay Area, 26.02.2008 15:32

This winter, a group of Bay Area activists re-started Direct Action to Stop the War (DASW), with an eye towards two actions to protest the anniversary of the US-led war and occupation of Iraq. Two "mass direct actions" are being planned for the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. On March 15th, DASW, along with community organizations, will be taking direct action against the Chevron refinery in Richmond. For March 19th, 2008-the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq-DASW is organizing a day of decentralized, multiple-target direct action against government offices and war profiteers in downtown San Francisco.

Hands Off Iraqi Oil!

United Kingdom, 26.02.2008 09:39

On Saturday 23rd February, a number of actions took place in the UK and Netherlands, in solidarity with the Iraqi peoples' struggle against the plunder of their oil reserves. The callout for action by the Hands Off Iraqi Oil Campaign resulted in actions in, Birmingham, London, Liverpool, Wrexham, Coventry and Amsterdam.

In February 2007 the Iraqi cabinet approved an oil law which, if passed into law, would allow the likes of Shell, BP and Exxon to take over control of most of Iraq's oil reserves, depriving ordinary Iraqis of scores of billions of dollars. Shell and BP, with the help of the UK Government have been actively pushing for this law and these contracts since 2003.

Brecht Forum Panel Discusses Left Views on the Economy

NYC, 25.02.2008 07:09

The economy’s been in the news recently. But most economic discussion is from the perspective of investors and other profit-makers, who generally assume that falling housing prices are universally bad, and that free markets are good. At the Brecht forum in Manhattan on Thursday night, February 21, a full house of 40-50 people heard a panel of speakers including Lewis Lapham, Doug Henwood, Nomi Prins and Noah Rosenblatt offer leftist analysis on the topic "The Big Bust: Is the Economy About to Crash?"
