600 Arrested at Mississippi Factory in Largest Immigration Raid in US History

DC, 28.08.2008 06:10

Federal agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, or ICE, descended onto the Howard Industries factory early on Monday. They separated all Latino workers from their white and black co-workers, arresting nearly 600 people, in a massive immigration raid on an electrical equipment factory in Laurel, Mississippi. The raid is now being described as the largest in US history, topping the May raid on a meat-processing plant in Postville, Iowa. Another Side to Race and Immigration When anti-immigrant forces mobilize, they focus on creating a 'Berlin Wall' between the USA and Mexico. I have not heard about any walls keeping East Europeans out. I have not heard about stopping the East Europeans at the borders, when they exit planes or ships, or perhaps cross over from Canada. - Bill Fletcher, Jr.

POLICE STATE OF MIND Black Helicopters Over Portland

Portland, 27.08.2008 21:38

I presented a Ground Zero Lounge about the possibility of a police state being declared in Denver if protestors rioted at the Democratic National Convention. It featured the Denver International Airport and the Masonic, religious and apocalyptic symbolism throughout the huge mural on the wall there and on other artwork throughout the building.

As I was preparing to go on stage at Dante's, I was called out of the bar by security guards. I wondered what was wrong.

"Come outside, Mr. Lewis. There is something that you should see."

I stepped out into the street, where, all along the curb, people scanned the sky with alarmed expressions. I thought that perhaps they were seeing some anomaly or UFO in the sky. "What's up?" I asked. "I don't see anything."

One security guard said, "Shhhh, listen!"

I heard a faint sound, rather like a lawn mower. As the sound got closer it drowned out the sounds of the downtown Portland streets.

I couldn't believe what I was seeing. There were two low-flying black helicopters buzzing rooftops and dropping armed soldiers on top of buildings. The only time I had seen anything like this before was in an Alex Jones documentary.



Protest the Black Helicopters Harassment

Portland, 27.08.2008 21:38

The Navy SEALS and PPB are, according to published accounts, are due back tonight for further Harassment. "The military and Police must have practice in controlling us." Check out the newest US Military Command "NorthComm". These flights are practice for the military to operate within US cities against US Citizens.

As the Black Death Machines fly over tonight, I urge Portlanders to shine flashlights on these that wish above all else to remain hidden in the shadows (low light operations). Let them know you are watching them.

A Preview of the DNC

Boston, 26.08.2008 16:09

Much has been made by many a liberal Democrat about the supposed "different-ness" of their political party, one that they claim has miraculously found a way to take billions of dollars of money every year from racist, sexist, land-raping capitalists and simultaneously support the liberation of women from patriarchy, people of color from white supremacy, workers from bosses, and the earth from destructive abuse. Anarchists reject these easily apparent lies every day, and they plan to do so again at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver Colorado.

DNC protests in Denver - mass arrests

Portland, 26.08.2008 13:38

Spoke with a friend in Denver on Sunday afternoon who said that people had been peppersprayed and that things were getting a little more intense. I searched and searched mainstream media and alternative media that day to find news of this... never found a goddamned thing anywhwere... But there is now some coverage of Monday's events at comeuptodenver.org - click on the button that says "new" next to "NEWS" at the top of the site.

Here is their latest press release ... including a somewhat interesting bias against anarchist protesters' right to free assembly and speech here... It seems as if the writer wants to see anarchists attacked at the expense of all the "innocents"... Also Colorado Indymedia is providing coverage - this press release was reposted to that site as well, - so if anyone wants to comment on this press release, that might be a good place to do so, where it will get more attention.

Asheville, NC: Democratic Party Headquarters Trashed in Opposition to Oil Drilling and War

Last night, on the eve of the Democratic National Convention, we trashed the Democratic Party Headquarters in Asheville, NC. We dumped several gallons of used motor oil onto their front porch and painted, "No war, No warming, No Drilling" on their walls.

We took this action to express our outrage at the Democrats pandering to the oil companies. Instead of looking for real solutions to global warming, the Democratic party, including the head honcho himself, Barack Obama, is pushing to open up more of our fragile coastal ecosystems to oil drilling. If this plan is allowed to go forward thousands of miles of coastline could be devastated by this toxic industry. All the while, greenhouse gas emissions will escalate, and our Earth's climate will teeter closer to the tipping point.

Meanwhile the Democrats continue to fully support the war on terror. While making half hearted gestures about ending the Iraq war, they have remained unabashed supporter of the war in Afghanistan. One recent highlight of this "just" war was the massacre of over 90 civilians at a wedding last week. Democrats, may the ghost of these innocents haunt you for the rest of your lives.

This action was taken in solidarity with all those in the streets of Denver, and people around the world who refuse to be silent.

Helicopters over Portland

Portland, 26.08.2008 10:38

Is anyone else watching the black helicopters fly low over southeast Portland right now? They are small and fast and going back and forth over Powell Blvd. There were four at first count, now there are only two. No numbers or insignia that I can see but my eyes are bad, as is my camera. They seem to be carrying some kind of instrument arrays (?). Anyone know who these people are or what they're doing?.. Besides making me vaguely uncomfortable?

Update: now they seem to be criss-crossing the neighborhood, though still too fast and low for me to photograph.

DENVER August 25, 2008 – The Democratic National Convention begins today in Denver. Street protests are planned throughout the week. Sunday saw a number of protests around the city. Sunday morning about 1,000 people marched from the State Capitol Building to the Pepsi Center Sunday and demonstrated in front of the gates to the protest cage around the center. Demonstrators refused to enter the police designated zone and instead assembled outside the caged area. Later in the afternoon decentralized protests snaked their way thought the downtown area briefly occupying some street intersections. At least one minor scuffle with police did occur. But no major confrontations with police have been reported. At this time only one protest related arrest has been reported, that of a 12 year old boy.

Tre's Latest- Callout August 13th, 2008

Yesterday, Tuesday August 12th, 2008 I was sentenced to 78 months in Federal Prison for two counts of arson. I plead guilty to these charges to avoid going to trial and possibly spending the rest of my life behind bars if found guilty. I want to reiterate very clearly that this was a non cooperation plea agreement, wherein I didn't give any information to the government about anyone or any action in order to receive this sentence. Unlike the three other defendants in this case I have not snitched on anyone. They received a 41 month sentence because they implicated me and cooperated fully with the government.If you wish to review the proceedings of any of my hearings you can do so at your convenience. These are public documents and available to anyone.

As for the sentencing hearing, once again I am humbled with the deepest gratitude to all my family (blood and extended) who were present in the courtroom. I gave a statement to the judge explaining my deep passion and commitment to helping save what is left of this precious planet. I certainly would love to see the government and its prosecutors demonstrate the same tenacity towards greedy corporations as they have directed towards peaceful activists. We owe it to our children and all future generations to do what we can to protect the forests, air, water, soil, and wildlife from greed and pollution. I will continue to be a voice for this planet in any way I can. [ Tre Arrow Has Been Moved | Tre's Latest- Callout | http://www.trearrow.org ]



Report back on Blue Hour demo - Sat 8/23

Portland, 25.08.2008 16:08

On Saturday, August 23rd, somewhere between 15 to 20 people joined in the fight against Foie Gras in Portland. Protesters showed up at Blue Hour (NW 13th & Everett) around 7:00 PM to raise their voices for ducks and geese that are force fed to make Foie Gras. The protest was very lively and patrons of the restaurant had decided to leave or take their dinner inside by 7:30 PM. The patio was cleared, but the protest continued. There were many new faces, and a few people joined in after passing by on the street... along with lots of honks and thumbs up from people driving by. We are seeing more and more people in support of this campaign.

Foie Gras is produced by force-feeding ducks and geese 3 times a day, with the amount of grain that would be equivalent to 16 pounds of spaghetti in a human stomach. Many times, the long and inflexible pipe that is used to force-feed these animals punctures their throats and causes them to suffocate or choke to death on their own vomit. For more information about Foie Gras, please visit www.nofoiegras.org. Join us next Saturday, August 30th at 7:00 PM to protest this cruel and torturous process, and the businesses that perpetuate this violence on a daily basis.

The Arms Trade: From Nottingham to Georgia

United Kingdom, 24.08.2008 17:39

In recent weeks, international headlines have been dominated by conflict between Russia and Georgia over South Ossetia. What may not be apparent is the role played by Nottingham-based arms company Heckler & Koch. It has emerged that Georgian elite forces fighting in the province have been illegally armed with Heckler & Koch assault rifles.

According to Human Rights Watch, the Georgian military "used indiscriminate and disproportionate force resulting in civilian deaths in South Ossetia". However, that hasn't stopped these war criminals from becoming customers of Heckler & Koch.

Upcoming Event: Monthly picket outside Heckler & Koch's Nottingham offices from 4pm Monday 8th September at Easter Park, Lenton Lane.
