Homeland security has setup up 3 internal checkpoints on the Olympic Peninsula. These checkpoints are in addition to checkpoints at Washington Ferry docks and highway border crossings. According to the U.S. Border Patrol, it has a jurisdiction of about 100 miles from the border. This puts most of Washington state in an area where border checkpoints are authorized, including Seattle.

The Rude Activist

Portland, 11.09.2008 22:39

Last weekend started with a meeting Thursday to start the planning for the presentation of the Trial of George W. Bush, it ended by getting into a confrontation with Willy Smith and Mac Prichard about our protest outside of Prichard's house. I have not seen Willy so upset, he was almost foaming at the mouth, telling me I had crossed the line by protesting at a private home. Willy told me in very clear language that if we blocked people coming in he would have us arrested. Prichard was angry about me upsetting his wife and ruining their fundraiser for the Earlman. I was kind of taken aback by their reaction, there were only three of us and we were not going to disrupt the party, just silently witness the continuation of the "Cocktail Liberals" telling themselves what peacemakers they are and how they want the war to end. Blumenauer after all, voted against the war! (He continues funding the occupation.)



De-toxing the RNC

Portland, 11.09.2008 22:39

Returning to "real life" after the intensity of St. Paul is challenging. So many people there used the word "surreal" to describe the conflicting mix of violence/kindness- brutality/courage- despair/committment. It will matter so much to learn from this, process the experience and not allow our grief and rage to leave lasting scars and diminish our intent to survive and prevail. It will not be easy.

Eyewitness: Police Brutality at the RNC - Street Medics

Portland, 11.09.2008 22:39

"... the pair of Portland Medics came across a man running backwards, wrapping a woman's cut open and bleeding hand while they both yelled for a medic. The medics took over the patient and the man disappeared into the crowd. The 20-second pause to attempt an evaluation of the patient's hand resulted in the police behind gaining ground and having a chance to deploy more chemical weapons. The medics began running again, patient in tow, one medic guiding her while the other finished the wrapping job on her hand. While doing this, the medics came upon a young man limping and yelling for help, 'I can't run! Help!'"

ALF releases hundreds of mink from oregon fur factory farm

Portland, 11.09.2008 02:39

More Captive Mink Released in Oregon; Animal Liberationists Raid Third Fur Farm in as Many Weeks...

Scio, Oregon - According to a communique received by the North American Animal Liberation Press Office this week, 100-150 captive mink were released from S and N Mink Farm in Scio, Oregon. The raid is the third in as many weeks, with thousands of captive wild animals given the chance for freedom from profit-hungry breeders.

The communique reads in full:
"Inspired by the recent liberations in Utah and British Columbia; we released between 100 and 150 mink from S&N Fur Farm (40499 Oupor Drive) in Scio, Oregon. Though thousands more mink remain imprisoned on this farm, crammed sometimes 6 and 7 at a time into filthy feces encrusted cages, at least some will have a chance at a free natural life. Also in the sheds of torture were the cages of furious foxes, yearning to be free, rattling their own cages with vengeance. This is our path through this chaotic and frustrating world. Our wisdom will appear to you long before we will. Till the last cage is empty, till all beings are free. ALF



Fight LNGs of the Basis of Inadequate Safety Precautions

Portland, 11.09.2008 02:39

Safety Issues are being totally ignored as power companies and Bush's Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) push through crazy proposals for huge new (LNG) Terminals & Pipelines in Oregon,

TAKE ACTION NOW TO RESIST THESE DANGEROUS PROPOSALS!

 http://www.nocaliforniapipeline.com/nopipelineblog/

The safety of the populace is dependent on the FERC's proper
assessment of the hazards and risks associated with Liquid Natural Gas (LGN)facilities. Therefore, you might think that the FERC would be a good source of information about the properties of LNG and whether citizens should be concerned when an energy developer targets their community to host an LNG terminal.

Unfortunately, you'd be wrong...



Bradwood Landing: What's Wrong With LNG?

Portland, 10.09.2008 21:39

As you likely know, Northern Star Natural Gas is planning to build a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal on the banks of the Columbia river, at Bradwood Landing. They have launched a relentless PR campaign to convince us all that this is a good thing for the region. "Jobs." "Growth." "Clean." These are some of the words they are using right now, on every billboard, on every radio station, on television commercials, and even, apparently, at union picnics (  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2008/09/379083.shtml). But it's worth looking into their claims a little closer. Indeed, it's worth taking the time to really understand what is at stake.



Police Corruption Case Study: Arrest the Latest in Months of Bluehour/PPB Opression

Portland, 10.09.2008 21:38

Is the two-foot area on the street next to walls (often blocked by vehicles) in the Pearl warehouse district the only legal public walkway? Is to illegal to use a rolled up piece of paper or plastic to speak through if you can be heard within 100 feet? Should the First Amendment be curtailed if it is simply inconvenient to a business? Should 6-10 officers not direct their attention toward violent crime (in progress or unsolved) on a Saturday night? Are these tactics symptoms of a larger failure by the PPB to consider the rights of citizens equally to those of business?

Coddling of Palin is False Feminism, Disguised Sexism, and Right-Wing Anti-Working-Women Thatcherism

Boston, 10.09.2008 15:08

The call of so-called feminists to coddle Palin is really disguised sexism and based on a medieval, male-chauvinist mentality that women are weak and fragile and should be protected. We don’t need an American Margaret Thatcher, an icon and poster child for right-wing policies that harm poor and middle-class working women, the majority of women. It’s time to expose Palin for what she really is.

Carnival Against Vivisection

United Kingdom, 10.09.2008 13:09

In solidarity with Sean Kirtley, who was imprisoned by the state for supposedly organising legal demonstrations against Sequani's vivisection laboratories, activists will be making a stand for the animals with a march and rally against Sequani labs on September 6th in Ledbury, Herefordshire.

Since campaigning against vivisection labs has been criminalised under Section 145 of the SOCPA legislation, such as operating a website critical of a company like Sean did, the event has been organised without organisers and is not an authorised event.

Hereford Police have already shown concern for the day of action by contacting NETCU Watch and are appealing for organisers to identify themselves, in the hope of finding somebody responsible. Despite this, the call for mass action has been promoted by various groups including Antispe Britain, West Midlands ALF, Stop Sequani Animal Testing, SHAC, and the Western Animal Rights Network.

Solidarity For Political Prisoner Sean Kirtley

United Kingdom, 10.09.2008 13:09

On Saturday 6th September two hundred activists made it to Ledbury, Herefordshire, for the Carnival Against Vivisection in solidarity with political prisoner Sean Kirtley. The day of action was called by various groups in resistance to the imprisoning of peaceful campaigners under SOCPA legislation, and as a stand for the animals suffering inside vivisection laboratories.

Protesters met on the grass verge, where the police held them allowing a maximum of 15 at a time to demonstrate outside Sequani labs. Shortly after campaigners made a spontaneous break for the labs, with police responding by blocking the bridge to push back the crowd, creating minor scuffles. Multiple attempts were also made to access the labs using various pre-planned routes, meeting police each time, some of which had dogs. Protesters then regrouped at the grass verge to march the original route around town.
