Force-Fed Ducks, Bluehour Sucks demonstration report

Portland, 22.07.2008 21:09

ast Saturday night saw another round of demonstrations in front of Bluehour restaurant downtown. About 12 animal advocates gathered to educate the public and restaurant patrons about the inherent cruelty in foie gras production.

Bluehour serves foie gras, which is literally the diseased livers of ducks and geese who have been force-fed with metal tubes rammed down their throats. The mortality rate on foie gras farms is about 20 times that of other duck farms. The birds are force-fed such huge amounts of food that they cannot walk. Their necks are torn by the metal tubes. The process is so cruel that it has been banned in at least 14 countries, including the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.



Strange Taser Demonstration Leaves More Questions Than Answers

Portland, 22.07.2008 21:09

In the face of growing concern over the use of tasers and other so-called "less lethal weapons," police officers and weapons industry shills have been conducting what can only be described as one of the strangest PR campaigns ever mounted. They have been "demonstrating" tasers by shooting them at each other, and at hapless volunteers in incongruous settings during family-friendly public gatherings. The message is supposed to be simple and easily digested: "See? Tasers can be fun." One such demonstration took place at the Columbia County Fair over the weekend. It was a bizarre spectacle that surely must be reminiscent of what Rome was like shortly before it fell.



Film of the Impeachment Vigil Protest on July 17 2008

Portland, 22.07.2008 19:39

This marks the one solid year of weekly protesting for accountability and justice outside (and inside) our Congressman's Earl Blumenauer's office

This skit pokes fun at the obvious facts that the USA <citizens> accept Bush's tolerance and accept that Bush and the Democrat-controlled-Congress will allow torture and human right lawbreaking to continue. The skit also pokes fun at the House Rep in Dist #3 here in Oregon who finds it not illegal or morally wrong to let the Bush administration continue doing what ever they want <sic> in-spite of written laws and our Constitution of the United States?

On July 16, ICE agents arrested 18 immigrant workers at Colorado Precast Concrete Inc. in Loveland, Colorado, after executing an administrative search warrant at the plant.

Maryland State Police surveillance of antiwar and anti-death penalty activists

Baltimore, 22.07.2008 00:09

BALTIMORE —- The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland today [7/17] made public what it called "shocking" documents obtained through a Maryland Public Information Act (MPIA) lawsuit, revealing that the Maryland State Police (MSP) engaged in covert surveillance of local peace and anti-death penalty groups for over a year from 2005-2006. The organization expressed alarm at the incomprehensible spying revealed in 43 pages of summaries and computer logs, none of which refer to criminal or even potentially criminal acts, other than a few isolated references to plans for completely nonviolent civil disobedience.

ACLU of Maryland Executive Director Susan Goering blasted the program as "Un-American," and said, "I fear that the documents released today, which the MSP wrongfully withheld for almost two years, may be only the tip of the proverbial iceberg."

Local Government Workers Strike Over Pay

United Kingdom, 21.07.2008 17:08

On Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 July, local government workers in Unison and Unite took part in a 48 hour strike. The action was in response to the "final" 2.45% pay offer made by the employers (which, given the current rate of inflation, constitutes a real terms pay cut) and part of a wider struggle being waged across the public sector against what the government call "pay restraint."

Support for the strike seems to have been patchy. Nevertheless, there were pickets at council offices across the country and thousands of schools were closed as teaching assistansts, caretakers, midday supervisors and admin staff walked out. Larger towns and cities saw a number of rallies and marches.

[G8-Genova 2001] Processi al giro di boa

Switzerland, 21.07.2008 15:07

A 7 anni di distanza il sipario sulle giornate del G8 di Genova non è ancora calato. Molti restano gli interrogativi ai quali non è stata data una risposta. Di certo queste risposte non arriveranno dalle aule dei tribunali.
Mentre i 5 processi principali stanno volgendo al termine si sommano gli sterili contentini e le amare delusioni che la giustizia italiana consegna a chi tenta di esprimere il proprio dissenso. Stando alle sentenze fin qui emesse in Italia esistono ufficialmente i vandali, che devastano e saccheggiano, ma non c'è traccia di torturatori o di sicari di Stato.
È infatti notizia di queste settimane che nonostante l'impianto accusatorio dei PM che denunciavano le violenze e le torture accadute all'interno della Caserma di Bolzaneto, la verità emersa dalle testimonianze delle vittime di quella che è stata definita "una macelleria messicana" è stata solo parzialmente riconosciuta: su 45 imputati, 30 sono stati assolti. Su 80 anni di carcere chiesti dall'accusa, ne sono stati comminati 24. Lievi erano state le richieste, ancora più lievi sono state le condanne (nessuno dei 15 condannati pagherà con il carcere, grazie alla prescrizione).

L'ultimo processo, che deve ancora giungere al termine, riguarda invece la mattanza della Diaz. Una vera e propria azione repressiva e punitiva delle forze del (dis)ordine che si concluse con il pestaggio dei presenti e il ferimento di 79 persone (su 93 arrestate).
Giovedì 17 luglio i PM incaricati dell'inchiesta hanno reso note le richieste delle condanne per i superpoliziotti: 109 anni e 9 mesi in totale, con reati che vanno dall'abuso d'ufficio alle calunnie e percosse. A settembre dovrebbe concludersi il processo.
Chi vivrà, vedrà...

'Thank You' Letter From Pitch Pipe Infoshop

Portland, 21.07.2008 14:40

Thank you! To the anonymous ninjas, Us here at the Pitch Pipe Infoshop would like to thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for removing the surveillance camera that was pointed at our house. You are beautiful and amazing, whoever you are. We are all extremely grateful for your vigilance in defending our community from the onslaught of the police state.

The government wants us all under their thumbs. They want all of us to be in our right place; going to work, being trapped in school, rotting in prison, doing nothing that they do not want us to do. We are forbidden from living. The government wants to render us into soulless, empty shells, acting as nothing more than carriers for capital and resources. Our forests are as expendable as we are to them. And so that none their slaves may rebel, they cover our streets with cameras and police cruisers. They wish to destroy every free space still in existence. They wish to see everything so that they may stop what is most dangerous to them: LIFE.

Whoever destroyed the camera destroyed a small piece of the government's grand design for us. They took a swing at the panopticon and made off with one of its eyes. Let there be thousands more of these acts. Together, let's smash their horrible machine to pieces.
PS: If you can, please make information about the stolen camera public so everyone can know what they were using against us.

Update on Daniel McGowan

Portland, 21.07.2008 14:40

Friends, On Monday, July 14, Daniel appeared in federal court in the Western District of Wisconsin (Madison) before Judge Barbara Crabb and was found in civil contempt for his refusal to answer questions before a grand jury.

Since he is already in custody for his existing prison sentence, this means that his clock of time being served has stopped. An appeal has been filed by his lawyer to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, as well as a motion for bail (in his case since he wouldn't be released, to start his federal time moving forward again). Right now, until the grand jury is dismissed or other agreements are made within that case and things are resolved, his time will not count as time served. It is unknown whether he will remain in county jail for the full extension of this period.

So, for now, please continue to write to Daniel with positive thoughts, funny stories, and well wishes, as this has been a particularly stressful and difficult time. Letters are key to time passing quickly inside.



Customers Ask the California PUC to examine PacifiCorp's spending on Klamath Dams

Portland, 21.07.2008 14:40

A group of PacifiCorps California electric customers has asked the California Public Utilities Commission to examine the company's spending to relicense four Klamath River dams and powerhouses. The customers say the company has already spent more than $50 million on aging facilities which harm the Klamath River and its salmon. The PUCs are charged with protecting the interests of customers - called "ratepayers" in PUC parlance.

Some Californians who get their electricity from Portland-based PacifiCorp want the California Public Utilities Commission to review PacifiCorp's spending on its Klamath River dams and to provide an expert, independent assessment of what is best for the ratepayers.

This past weekend was the annual Art Beat Festival in Davis Sq, sponsored by the Somerville Arts Council. The theme of this year’s event was green – green for the extension of the Green Line through Somerville, and green for environmental awareness. There was live music on 3 stages, with one of them devoted to Children’s programming. Elm St. and Holland Ave were lined with food and arts and crafts vendors. They were intermingled with socially conscious organizations. One of them was the Somerville-based Bycicle Riding School for Adults and Children. They’ve been getting a lot of main stream media publicity lately, which has generated much interest in their school. [LISTEN TO AUDIO:]

Genoa Solidarity Action in Charlottesville, Virginia

DC, 20.07.2008 19:10

On Saturday, July 19, 2008, a small crowd gathered at the Pavillion Amphitheatre, near the University of Virginia in downtown Charlottesville, USA, to listen to an a capella concert in support of all of the demonstrators and citizens of Genoa who were present during the G8, July 18-22 2001, particularly the survivors of the Diaz School and Bolzaneto. The words, "Genova Libera," were added to a community chalkboard mural in front of the pavillion. A few clips of the concert are included here; due to poor video quality, the song cannot be entirely reproduced, but hopefully this will give you an idea of how it went. (Apologies, but Charlottesville and Richmond Indymedias are down, and DC is the next-closest IMC.)

Largest HLS Investor Dumps All Shares

United Kingdom, 20.07.2008 15:08

Anti-HLS campaigners this week have gained another major victory in closing down Europe's largest and most exposed vivisection laboratory Huntingdon Life Sciences, known also as Life Sciences Research, ticker symbol LSR.

Raymond James Financial, their parent company, made the announcement within a month of a full-scale campaign in the UK and USA including email alerts, office and home demonstrations against both companies.

Since December 2007 HLS has suffered from a serious lack of investment, with companies last year eventually selling all their shares. Shareholders included; TransAmerica Investment, Frontier Capital, SAC Capital, Axa, Wachovia, Alternative Investment Partners, Rathbone Brothers, Dresdner Bank, Deutsche Bank, La Grange Capital, Robeco Investment Management, Fairfield Greenwich Associates & BNP Paribas [1 | 2 | 3].

The Indypendent Issue 123: Running On Empty

NYC, 20.07.2008 04:39

The American economy is hurting. The housing and credit crises have done their share. And now the high cost of fuel is adding to that damage. A.K. Gupta, in our cover story, takes a look at what the skyrocketing cost of fuel could mean to the way Americans live their lives.

“In this crisis lies a great opportunity. This shockwave could radically restructure our economy and lifestyles. But how this transformation occurs depends on whether choices are made individually through “the market” or collectively through the political process.

There is a stark choice: a shrinking economy, declining social services and an ever-growing underclass. A future where those with the means flee to city centers to escape high energy costs, while many suburbs become home to poverty and crime. Or, if specific legislative and policy actions are enacted, high energy prices are maintained through taxes that are used to retool the economy away from fossil fuels and toward sustainable — and local — manufacturing, agriculture and living.”

Also in this issue: Profiles of how the rising cost of fuel is affecting local vendors, taxi drivers, and greenmarkets, coverage of the Longest Walk II, and on-the-ground reporting in Latin America. See below for much more!

Strike at Allison BMW in Mountain View

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.07.2008 01:39

On June 1st, auto technicians and service advisors in Mountain View went on strike after their contract with Allison BMW expired. Allison BMW was recently purchased by the Florida based corporation, Auto Nation. The new owner demanded that workers accept a contract that would, "bring them into line with the rest of the nation." This meant cuts in hourly wages, no paid sick days, fewer paid holidays and higher health premiums and deductables. The issue of greatest concern was that of the flat rate. The company wants a system where the technician is given a time limit for each task. If the worker completes the job within that time frame they are paid the full amount. However, if they don't, for whatever reason, they must complete the work on their own time.
