Update: Portland City Hall Homeless Protest

Portland, 12.05.2008 18:38

Yesterday 7 people were arrested when the Portland Police came to post 72 hour "Illegal Campsite" notices and alert us that our homeless encampment at City Hall was not within lawful compliance. We have been camping on the sidewalks for 15 days to protest the unconstitutionality of the sit/lie ordinance and to demand the repeal of the anti-camping law that makes being without a home a crime. Long term solutions to the affordable housing/greed crisis in downtown Portland however is the primary goal that has brought everyone who is down at City Hall together. So far, many creative ideas have been offered and discussed over the past weeks, and over the course of time the number of protesters has grown from 15 at the beginning into the upwards of 100. Although yesterdays police presence seemed to disperse protesters, the peak head count last night was 84.

"We aren't leaving until they give us what we want" is our general consensus, although the diversity of our growing crowd has brought many new angles as to how we would accomplish such. Mayor Potter has basically refused dialog, and continues to be narrowly focused on the federal mandated "Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness," as well as on opening temporary shelter beds which do nothing over the long-term.

Last night our entire camp met to discuss issues and decide what's next.

Fighting In Lebanon As US-Backed Government Clashes With Hezbollah

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.05.2008 15:39

Monday, May 12, 2008 :In Lebanon, armed clashes over the past week have left at least 81 dead. Fighting erupted last week during a general strike called by the General Federation of Labor Unions to protest the high cost of living. On May 8th, Hezbollah leader Nasrallah held a press conference in Beirut and condemned a decision by the Lebanese cabinet to outlaw Hezbollah"s telecommunication network and dismiss the head of Airport security for his alleged ties to the party. Nasrallah said their private communication network was critical to their success during the July 2006 war with Israel. Hezbollah-led opposition forces quickly overpowered pro-government militias and took over large parts of the capital city of Beirut before handing over control to the Lebanese army.

May Day Revival on Three Fronts: Labor, Immigrant, and Antiwar

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.05.2008 09:39

The work stoppage at all 29 West Coast ports on May 1, 2008 by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) was an historic turning point for the U.S. labor movement. For the first time in more than seventy years, a major U.S. trade union led marches and a system-wide strike on May Day. And for the first time ever, it was not for economistic reasons, but for the political demand to end the disastrous and debilitating U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Aixecament popular contra els terratinents a Bolivia

Bolivia crema :: L'oligarquia de terratinents que posseeixen la majoria de terres a les zones més pròsperes del país estan movent fitxa.

Aquests latifundistes tenen un menyspreu absolut cap als indígenes, mantenen molts d'ells en situació d'esclavitud, i tenen al servei grups armats declaradament fascistes, creats durant les dictadures, i que estàn disposats a utilitzar les armes per reprendre el control absolut del país.

Community Responds to ICE Raid in Richmond, VA

United States, 11.05.2008 23:38

Calling the 33 undocumented workers arrested during a federal immigration raid earlier this week "disappeared," more than 50 Richmond protesters demanded to know where those people are being held and for immediate reunification with their families. The raid occurred at the construction site of a new federal courthouse at Seventh and Broad streets. Read More & Pics: ICE rounds up workers in Richmond | Richmonders stand against ICE raid

"This tactic of separating families is an old tactic. (The government) did it during slavery to make profit and to demoralize people. (The government) did it to the Native Americans to assimilate people and take away their values. Here we are again in present times where the (ICE) raids repress workers and families." — Ana Edwards of the Defenders for Freedom Justice and Equality

Tens of Thousands March on Mayday for Immigrant Rights, Labor Rights

Chicago, 11.05.2008 19:08

May 1, 2008 saw tens of thousands of people participate in Chicago Mayday events. The flagship action was a large march starting from Union Park, and marching across Chicago to a rally in Federal Plaza, though many other events were also held.

Two main threads of the march and of the holiday — immigrant rights and labor rights — were more explicitly connected in 2008. The scale of the protest evokes the massive marches and rallies in 2006 and 2007.

UK Celebrates Mayday

United Kingdom, 11.05.2008 16:38

Mayday has been celebrated in one form or another for thousands of years. Pagans marked the day as the end of the hardships of winter. Following the struggle amongst American workers for the eight hour day and the murder by the US state of four anarchists involved in that struggle in 1886, the day has come to be marked as International Workers' Day.

Mayday in the UK has generally been a restrained affair compared to some European celebrations. Nevertheless, there are trade union marches across the country. In recent years, issues of immigration and free movement have become increasingly prominent on these demonstrations.

Callout for support at the City Hall Encampment

Portland, 11.05.2008 16:38

Portland Coalition Against Poverty is calling out for solidarity with the homeless camped out in front of City Hall. The police are planning a crack down sometime on Tuesday, and we want to have as many non-homeless folks as possible around to show support and monitor police abuses.

On Sunday at 5:00pm at Terry Shrunk Plaza (the park across the street from City Hall) we're having a solidarity meeting to get folks together and coordinate our efforts- feel free to show up, and camp out that night if you choose. Monday night is the power night, where everyone who can should come and flop down a sleeping bag, in case the police decide to sweep early on Tuesday morning. We'll be camping out that night for sure, and, starting Tuesday morning we'll be circulating a petition of support for the homeless around downtown. Even if you can't camp, show up Tuesday at noon to pick up a clipboard and circulate petitions.

Widerstandsfrühling 08: Hessen gentechnikfrei

Germany, 11.05.2008 11:38

Es war ein Mal ein Bundesland mit einer ambitionierten Universität in der Mitte, die sich gern als Global Player in Sachen "Agro-Biotechnologie" aufspielen wollte. Darum plante ihr Vorzeige-Gentechniker, Vize-Präsident und BASF-Patenteinhaber, Prof. Kogel, ein Versuchsfeld mit Gerste, mit dem er neue gentechnische Methoden entwickeln wollte. Sein Kollege Friedt war ein Jahr später mit zwei Maisversuchen zur Stelle. Da ließ sich auch die weltführende Gensaatenfirma Monsanto nicht lumpen und bereitete einen Versuch vor. So ging es ins Jahr 2008 - vier Versuchsfelder waren zu erwarten. Doch das Märchen der Genlobbyisten und -konzerne ist ausgeträumt. Ein überraschend starkes Frühjahr des Protestes hat alle vier Versuche vom Tisch gefegt - und das weitgehend ohne die Hilfe der üblichen FunktionärInnen. Es waren die BürgerInnen selbst sowie entschlossene FeldbesetzerInnen, die den Versuchen den Garaus machten.

Tag der Landlosen in Basel

Germany, 11.05.2008 11:38

Am 17. April, dem internationalen Tag der Landlosen, nahmen Menschen an über 50 Aktionen in 25 verschiedenen Ländern teil. Eine davon fand vor dem Hauptsitz des Schweizer Agrarkonzerns «Syngenta» in Basel statt. Hauptanlass dazu war die Ermordung eines Landlosen in Brasilien im Bundesstaat Paraná, durch eine von Syngenta beauftragte Sicherheitsfirma. Syngenta hatte im Bundesstaat Paraná in Nähe eines Naturschutzgebietes genmanipuliertes Saatgut ausgebracht, obwohl es dort per Gesetz verboten ist. LandbesetzerInnen der Landlosenbewegung MST protestierten dagegen; der Konzern setzte die Sicherheitsfirma auf sie an, die einen Aktivisten erschoss und andere verletzte. Anlässlich der UN-Biodiversitäts-Verhandlungen MOP4 und COP9, die im Mai 2008 in Bonn stattfinden, ruft ein Bündnis aus sozialen Bewegungen und AktivistInnen unter dem Motto «Natur für Menschen - nicht fürs Business» zu weiteren Protesten auf.

Takaparawha: Maori Autonomy Thirty Years On

Aotearoa, 11.05.2008 10:09

Last week marked the thirtieth anniversary of the reoccupation of Takaparawha/Bastion Point in Orakei, Tamaki Makaurau. As Ana comments,

the occupation certainly cemented the momentum and Maori drive for self determination, Takaparawha also showed the strength of solidarity with union placing green bans in support of the protest and support of many non Maori.It was a very visible reassertion of identity, pride & collective power. For a haapu that had been made virtually landless by the colonial imposition of Auckland, Takaparawha demonstrated the importance of fighting for the ahi kaa in our whenua and ourselves [ Read More ]

LNG for Oregon? Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG): Oregon at a Crossroads.
[Tuesday] May 13, 2008 6:30pm,
First Unitarian Church
, 1011 SW 12th Ave, Portland.

Just in time for this event, the Governor's office and Oregon Department of Energy yesterday demanded a new Environmental Impact Statement for the Bradwood LNG proposal. They cited multiple changes in the project proposal that are making it impossible for the public to get a clear sense of the project... a big help to the folks fighting the project... the report does acknowledge the excessive greenhouse gas impacts of LNG. The report, however, does conclude that Oregon needs more gas. Still, it will go a long way to undermine the false claims of LNG speculators. The Oregonian described it yesterday as a "potentially fatal blow" to LNG.

Speakers will include community activists, Bill Bradbury, and former Enron prosecutor John Kroger. All will address the importance of moving Oregon away from LNG and towards conservation, efficiency, and renewables. Come by and learn more about the push to reject LNG, "the next fossil fuel."

VIDEO - Indigenous Warriors block international shipping in solidarity with Tyendinaga

Portland, 11.05.2008 01:39

Video Entitled "This is Coast Salish Territory"

On Monday April 28th, 2008 Indigenous Warriors on Coast Salish Territory blocked a vital intersection used for commercial shipping to the United States. The action was done in solidarity with the Tyendinaga Mohawk community. Five Warriors from Tyendinaga had been arrested and attacked by the OPP days before. SWAT teams and paramilitary units were on Tyendinaga Territory surrounding dozens of other unarmed Warriors who were peacefully occupying a rock quarry claimed to be on their territory.

Solidarity actions also happened in Six Nations and Guelph. With the mounting pressure from coast to coast, and steadfast position of the Tyendinaga Mohawks the SWAT teams and paramilitary units left Tyendinaga Territory without additional attacks.

Since their arrest, three of the five Warriors have been released on strict bail conditions. Two Warriors, Clint Brant and Shawn Brant are still in state custody. | | |

New Zealand Open Rescue has conducted an undercover investigation into an intensive piggery in Auckland, uncovering gruesome evidence and rescuing two female piglets.

“Our investigation revealed death, cannibalism and immense suffering,” says New Zealand Open Rescue spokesperson Deirdre Sims.

“We witnessed sows in farrowing crates anguished in extreme confinement. These mother pigs were unable to walk or turn around, let alone able to interact with their babies. Our team also documented many dead piglets, one of which had been severely cannibalized."

A Tale of Two Marches

Boston, 09.05.2008 15:08

Boston, Mass.--One of the obvious reasons for the historical success of the Walk for Hunger (and biggest differences between it and the May Day event) is its wholly non-ideological nature. But hunger doesn’t occur in a vacuum, ideological or otherwise. It isn’t natural, and it isn’t desirable, but there it is, and it’s growing. Hunger is rooted at a nexus of political, economic, scientific, technological, and spiritual ideologies, making that one hell of a busy rotary indeed. [Essay on the May Day march in Boston and & Walk for Hunger on the following Saturday. Full text with images, live links and edited video montage of May Day event appears on]

Mission Street &quot;Bikes May Use Full Lane&quot; Bike Ride on May 13th

Santa Cruz, CA, 09.05.2008 07:09

Two experienced cyclists have been killed on Mission Street in Santa Cruz in the last year. According to People Power, Santa Cruz County's advocate for human-powered transportation, both of these deaths could have been avoided had the City designed the street six years ago with bike lanes. People Power also asserts that both deaths could have been avoided if the cyclists had felt safe riding in the middle of the right hand lane. On Tuesday, May 13th, bicyclists will converge at the Santa Cruz Clock Tower at 6pm for a group ride taking up the right lane of Mission Street, and eventually ending at the City Council meeting to ask that "BIKE MAY USE FULL LANE" signs be posted on Mission Street.

The "conspiracy" was fabricated by "Anna," an FBI informant who was paid over $65,000 to entrap him. Now that the sentencing is over, Eric will be able to start the appeals process. In the near future, Eric will likely be sent to a federal facility. His supporters are hopeful that the move will bring many improvements in his overall standard of living.

FBI Withdraws Unconstitutional National Security Letter After ACLU and EFF Challenge

United States, 09.05.2008 01:07

Gag Order Lifted on Internet Archive, Allowing Founder to Speak Out for First Time

The FBI has withdrawn an unconstitutional national security letter (NSL) issued to the Internet Archive after a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). As the result of a settlement agreement, the FBI withdrew the NSL and agreed to the unsealing of the case, finally allowing the Archive's founder to speak out for the first time about his battle against the record demand.

"The free flow of information is at the heart of every library's work. That's why Congress passed a law limiting the FBI's power to issue NSLs to America's libraries," said Brewster Kahle, founder and Digital Librarian of the Internet Archive. "While it's never easy standing up to the government -- particularly when I was barred from discussing it with anyone -- I knew I had to challenge something that was clearly wrong. I'm grateful that I am able now to talk about what happened to me, so that other libraries can learn how they can fight back from these overreaching demands."
