*SCAM ALERT!!* Predatory Company Operating on PDX Craigslist and Other Free Classifieds

Portland, 11.10.2008 17:38

*SCAM WARNING!!* Rental-Data Bureau's (aka RDB, rental-data.com) Predatory Practices

If you are seeking rental property in the Portland Metro area you may have run across their NUMEROUS "Call RDB" house listing ads online. The ads often list enticingly low prices in attractive areas, yet NEVER offer an address or a photo.

Avoid these people and their dubious 'service' like the plague on free society they are. They republish a database of freely obtained house listings from off the net and charge RENTERS $35 to see their substandard imageless database. They illegitimately spam the free classified sites with their 'listings' which are in reality only ads for their website 'service'. They use phony bait and switch tactics by listing enticing properties in their ads that do not exist in the database once you become a member.



Something Stinks in Sandy (Again)

Portland, 11.10.2008 17:38

Another corrupt Clackamas County Deputy is allowed to resign, amid allegations of professional misconduct. Clackamas County DA and CCSO sweep it under the rug, as usual. Meanwhile, not a word - nay, nary even a mention - of Sandy PD's own Bill Bergin and his involvement in the whole sordid affair. Business as usual up here on the mountain.



An Open Letter To The Person Who Abandoned Two Cats

Portland, 11.10.2008 17:38

Odds are you will never read this. Odds are you are not someone who reads the animal rights section of IndyMedia. Perhaps some dream spirit will whisper into your ear as you sleep tonight, "shame on you." Perhaps you will wake with a twinge of guilt, and perhaps you will never repeat your cruel act.

About a month ago you abandoned two juvenile, unneutered male cats at the back of the apartment complex I live in. Either you moved away and left them, or you crept your car along the dirt road behind my place and shoved two confused and frightened youngsters out the door. The method doesn't matter. You abandoned them. You shoved your responsibility out the door and went on with your life.



Anything planned for Indigenous People's day this year (aka &quot;destroy Columbus&quot; day)?

Portland, 11.10.2008 17:38

Just trying to figure out if anything is planned for that day, haven't been able to find anything conclusive. Well that time of the year (October 13th) nears again when thinly veiled white supremacist pro-genocidal sentiments are publicly aired by the powers that be; they call it "Columbus day" after the confused imperialist who was discovered by indigenous peoples of the (so called) American continent lost at sea. As a person of European descent I personally curse that day, but I also want to remember and celebrate the 500÷ years of waged resistance to colonial and neo-colonial occupation that has occurred from the higher latitudes of "Canada" and "Alaska" south to farthest reaches of "Chile" and "Argentina." Some people would dismiss this resistance as only of historical importance, but the truth is that the struggle continues to this very day.



OPB Supports Foi Gras!!! Please call them to tell them what you think about that.

Portland, 11.10.2008 17:38

[Tonight], OPB is going to air an episode of Rick Steve's Europe, in which Rick "visits a goose farm" and eats foie gras. Now, it does not surprise me that a classist ass like Rick Steves would support horrific animal cruelty, but it does surprise me that OPB would support such a thing. I am horrified.

Please contact OPB to let them know what happens to geese whose bellies are force fed until their livers explode. Tell them how cruel this practice is, and how unbelievable it is that OPB would support such a thing. And if you are an OPB member, please cancel your membership and tell them why. Cascadia does not support cruelty against animals.

Amadeu Casellas eniris en malliberejon sen deliktoj de sango, jam antaŭ pli ol 22 jaroj. La restadolimo en malliberejo estas 20 jaroj, sed oni lin longigas la restadon. Kial? Ĉar en la malliberejo li postulis la rajtojn de la malliberuloj. Li nun malsatstrikas ekde antaŭ proksimume 2 monatoj sed li ne estis sufiĉe aŭskultita. Unu fojon pli ĝin faris por postuli siajn rajtojn, sed la surdaj oreloj de ĉi tiu justico povas provoki al li malĝustegan morton. Necesas agi kaj agigi rapide por tion eviti.

Our goal at the DNC and RNC conventions was to cover what was happening in the streets, not to obtain passes for the scripted and superficial showcases going on inside the armored fortresses. This included a 10 to 15 minute daily video dispatch as well as blogs from each convention. The daily video dispatches are viewable on Seattle Indymedia and were also aired on television via Free Speech TV.

Iraq Vets Against the War Send Letter to Schieffer, Plan Protest at Hofstra Univ. Debate

NYC, 10.10.2008 18:08

Iraq Veterans Against the War is asking supporters to assemble "starting
2:30 pm" at Hempstead LIRR station, which means getting on either the 1:37
PM train from NY Penn Station (41st & 8th) OR the 1:37 PM train from the
Flatbush LIRR station at the Atlantic-Pacific subway stop (#2, 3, 4, 5, B, Q to
Atlantic or N, R, M to Pacific). Most other trains to Hempstead take between 51
and 60 minutes from either station.

There will still be greeters at Hempstead station well after that time .

From Matthis Chiroux...

Dear Mr Schieffer,

I'm writing you today as a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War to make
clear the details of a demonstration we will be leading Oct. 15th at Hofstra
University prior to the final presidential debate and what our demands are and
will be.

We in IVAW demand that two of our members, myself and Kristofer Goldsmith, be
permitted entry to the debate and be allowed to ask each candidate one question.
If this demand is not agreed to IN FULL by 7 p.m. EST on the 15th, members of
IVAW will lead a large contingent of veterans and our supporters on a
NON-VIOLENT procession to the debate center and are prepared to risk arrest
and/or bodily harm attempting to enter to have our voices heard. (This action
will look very similar to our marches at the DNC and RNC which were widely
covered in the media and on youtube, should you wish to see what's coming.)

As the economy has continued its downhill slide this election season, the issue
of Iraq has been pushed further and further away from peoples' minds, as
well the platforms of the candidates. In addition, little to no attention has
been paid this election season to the abysmal failure of the Veterans
Administration to adequately care for our returning troops and their families
and how we can work as a nation to fix this problem.

As a result, more and more veterans are falling into debt, starving, going
homeless and killing themselves while the government REFUSES to allocate
sufficient funds for our much needed and deserved care while simultaneously
lining the pockets of the richest with $700 billion in taxpayer (including
servicemembers and veterans) money.

Such blatant betrayals of our services and sacrifices cannot go unaddressed by
IVAW, thus we will have our voices heard on the issues one way or the other, be
it from inside the debate hall, or be it to a hoard of domestic and
international press outside the event who have already expressed great interest
in and dedication to covering our demonstration.

What yourself and the candidates must decide now, Mr. Schieffer, is what the
legacy of this debate will be. Will this be remembered as an event where both
sides of the isle and the media came together to hear from our nation's
heroes, even if only for five minutes, or will the words and promises of both
candidates be forever shrouded in the image of a host of uniformed veterans and
their supporters going to jail because these campaigns cared too little to hear
from them?

Again, we are dedicated to 100% non-violence during this demonstration and will
resist no arrest. However, we will NOT, I repeat, we will NOT back down, be intimidated or moved in any way shape or form until our demands are met or we
are arrested.

I am attaching a press release we have been distributing for our action world
wide. Should you have any questions or wish to arrange entrance ahead of time
for our two members, contact me at*******.

I thank you for your time, sir, and look forward to meeting you in person.

For honor and
country,

Matthis Chiroux

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) will lead non-violent
demonstrations at Hofstra University prior to the final presidential debate Oct.
15 to demand two IVAW members be allowed to ask each candidate one question.

Should IVAW's demands not be met in full by 7 p.m., members of the
organization are willing to risk arrest by entering the debate to have their
voices heard by the candidates.

IVAW intends to "force the issue" that servicemembers and veterans
are not being heard or cared for by our leaders. The next president should make
caring for our wounded military a top domestic priority, in addition to ending
the war in Iraq.

"Right now there are veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan going homeless,
hungry, into debt and contemplating suicide," said Matthis Chiroux, an IVAW
member from Brooklyn. "But the government says we don't have the money
to
care for those war heroes, so the V.A. continues its mission underfunded and
understaffed. But now we've found almost a trillion to bail out banks?
Where's the humanity in this?"

IVAW is currently working to contact debate moderator Bob Schieffer to make its
demands known.

"I watched the first debate the other night, for which the topic was
supposed to be 'foreign policy', yet it took 34 minutes before the words
'Iraq' or 'Veteran' left either candidates' mouths,"
said Kris Goldsmith, an IVAW member from Long Island. "I'm not
convinced that either Obama or McCain care about what is most important to
today's military and veterans. IVAW is committed to changing that."

Participants should begin assembling at the Hempstead Long Island Railroad
station at 2:30 p.m. At five, we will "walk" to Hempstead University
for further demonstrations.

IVAW was founded by Iraq war veterans in July 2004 to allow
servicemen and
women from all branches of the military a chance to come together and speak out
against an unjust, unwinnable and illegal occupation. Today, IVAW has over 1,300
members in 49 states, Washington, D.C. and Canada, and on military bases in the
U.S. and overseas, including Iraq.

Arms Traders in Balaclavas: Weapons conference resistance continues

Aotearoa, 09.10.2008 23:40

8th October Tonight we descended on the weapons conference delegates as they were entering the duxton hotel on wakefield street, wellington for the ‘Minister of Defence awards for excellence’ and gala dinner (one presumes, covered in a nice bloody sauce). Their composure was disrupted with shouts, screams, drums and general noise. Food not bombs served up a tasty soup, delicious dumpstered bananas and bread to keep us going for 2 hours. The duxton hotel has been surrounded by poolice and provision security scum for two days. They have gone to extreme lengths to keep the conference secret and to keep disruption to a minimum. The police were inside and outside the hotel, filming people from cars and on foot. Provision security were also using film and video cameras to record events. One suit-wearing scumbag quickly donned a balaclava in order to avoid being filmed by us, while another was forced out of the lift as he tried to hide from people. [More]

As it has been for too many years now: 12 oct. Nothing to celebrate!

The Platform "No ens tallaran les Ales" that fights for the freedom of speach and demonstration, has been repressed and ilegalised for some of its actions. Social Centres, collectives, entities and individuals that fight, day after day, to end up with this system that opressess us are being persecuted, repressed, ilegalised... But fascists that, year after year, celebrate the beginin of the America's people Genocide, deny the Holocaust, claim for Franco's memory and attack anyone who is not like them. They are tolerated and can act without any impediment. It is an insult to the anticolonialist and the antifrancoist fight, and a serious contradiction with democratic exercice to help recovering the NON democratic historical memory.

És un insult a la lluita anticolonialista i antifranquista i, sobretot, una greu contradicció amb l'exercici democràtic facilitar la recuperació de la memòria històrica NO democràtica

Como desde hace ya demasiados siglos: 12 oct. ¡Nada que Celebrar!

A la plataforma "No ens tallaran les Ales" que lucha por el derecho a la libertad de expresión y manifestación, se les reprime e ilegalizan actos; los Centros Sociales Okupados, colectivos, entidades e individuos que luchan día día para acabar con este sistema que nos oprime son perseguidos, reprimidos, ilegalizados... A los fascistas que año tras año celebran el inicio del genocidio contra los pueblos indígenas, que niegan el holocausto, que aclaman para el retorno de un dictador como Franco y que agreden a todo tipo de personas que no sean como ellos, se les tolera y se les deja hacer sin ningún tipo de impedimento. Es un insulto a la lucha anticolonialista y antifranquista y, sobretodo, una grave contradicción en el ejercicio democrático facilitar la recuperación de la memoria histórica No democrática.
