Can We Talk About the REAL Barack Obama now?

DC, 05.11.2008 20:10

Over the past few weeks I've been a good boy. I've placed everything having to do with the real Barack Obama into a futures file and spent my time on the far grimmer matter of the real John McCain and Sarah Palin. Now the party is over and it's time for people to put away their Barack and Michelle dolls and start dealing with what has truly happened… Other Commentary: Which Candidate Supports Petraeus, the Bailout, the Death Penalty, Nuclear Power, the Occupation, the Cuban Embargo?

Boston, 05.11.2008 20:08

This was an effort launched by the Somerville Divestment Project (SDP) last year who have worked in coalition with organizations such as, Cambridge Residents for Human Rights (CRHR) and Jamaica Plain Residents for Human Rights (JPRHR), to highlight the needs of Palestinians to live free of intimidation on their lands.

Oregon Convention Center!

Portland, 05.11.2008 18:38

FYI-I've been participating tonight at the Oregon Convention Center, headquarters to the Democratic Party of Oregon's Election night 2008, where Barack Obama was announced our new President of the USA. Shook hands with several elected officials in tow. People by the hundreds trickled out into the streets thereafter, waving blue signs and untold numbers of cars honking with a huge media presence.

From there, I then proceeded to Pioneer Courthouse Square, where a night-time rally of a few hundred people gathered to sing "Star Spangled Banner" and chants of "No More Bush", "Yes We Can", and so forth. A fantastic drum played beautifully. A conga line of a few dozen temporarily was formed, with joyous dancing and glee. Again, huge media presence.

black helicopters urban warfare exercises in Portland follow 9-11 preparations

Portland, 05.11.2008 18:38

Is urban warfare planned for Portland, Oregon with the past and current months of rent-a-cops and black helicopters and Homeland Security on the Eastside of Portland and the DoD/Army and Navy contract with the Portland Police Bureau and Portland Mayor Tom Potter? This connects with military intelligence analysts Lt. Col. Guy S. Razer, Maj. William B. Fox, Dr. James H. Fetzer, Capt. Eric H. May, SFC Donald R. Buswell who state: "Since Houston, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, and Phoenix have already been "prepared" in prior exercises, they remain especially vulnerable... ." The public is encouraged to gather the facts and unite in preventing and countering it, holding public servants and the media accountable, while also preparing for emergency mutual aid and survival under martial law.

Международный День Вегана. 1 ноября, Минск.

Belarus, 05.11.2008 11:37

Начиная с 1 ноября 1994 года, каждый год в этот день во всём мире отмечается Международный день вегана.

Веганы – строгие вегетарианцы, полностью отказавшиеся не только от пищи животного происхождения, но и от одежды из шерсти, кожи, меха, выступающие против различных видов эксплуатации животных в развлекательной индустрии.

Именно поэтому сегодня около 17.00 в парке Горького, минскими веганами и вегетарианцами из различный движений, была проведена акция, посвящённая этой тематике.

Основной задачей акции являлась попытка заинтересовать людей в вег(етари)анском образе жизни, его полезности для организма, а также экологической и экономической выгоде такого питания.

Сама акция проходила в виде угощения приготовленной едой(пита с чечевицой, горячий зелёный чай), информирования путём раздачи листовок, касающихся как питания, так и жестокого обращения с животными, пушно-мехового производства, а также непосредственных бесед с прохожими.

PSWI Reaches Plea Agreement with Anoka County

United States, 05.11.2008 07:07

Project to Stop the War Industry (PSWI) has accepted a plea agreement with Anoka County. All 8 remaining arrestees from the July 2nd lockdown across the driveway of the ATK weapons manufacturing facility have plead guilty to one misdemeanor count of Public Nuisance in a deal that will allow the conviction to be reduced to a petty (and therefore not a crime) in a year's time pending no same or similar convictions, and with the completion of 20 hours of self-reporting community work service.

No More Clear Cuts!

Rogue Valley, 04.11.2008 20:10

On October 9, 2008, the BLM released its Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Western Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). The BLM’s final proposal would clearcut 74,000 acres of stands over 80 years old in the first decade and 27% of the remaining old growth across 96,200 acres of BLM lands over the next 100 years. The WOPR will increase logging by nearly 400% compared to current logging levels; get over 70% of the timber volume from clearcutting; shrink streamside reserves by 50%; add 180 million tons more carbon to the atmosphere compared to no logging and result in 1,300 miles of new roads.

The final plan will mirror the draft in most regards. It will: 1) remove BLM forests from the scientific framework of the Northwest Forest Plan; 2) ramp up clearcut logging across hundreds of thousands of acres; 3) remove streamside buffers that protect clean water and fish; and 4) log some of the last remaining older forests in western Oregon.



Studs and Me

United States, 04.11.2008 19:37

I only met the master interviewer Studs Terkel, who died Friday at 96, once but that occasion remains a high point of my 35 years as a journalist...He was completely conversational. He never cut me off, allowing me to answer questions fully, and if he wanted more, he knew exactly what he wanted and was able to gently ask a leading question that sent me in the right direction without my ever feeling steered, pressured or manipulated into answering. Most important, he was genuinely interested in what I had to say. It really was like he said, that we were two guys relaxing on the back porch conversing.

And that, I believe, not just his incalculable contribution to the understanding of America, is what was Studs Terkel’s greatness as a journalist. Read more & VIDEO/strong> by Dave Lindorff | RELATED: Studs Terkel, the passing of an icon



MD State police send heavily censored &quot;files&quot; to spy scandal targets

NYC Election Night Party Preview: Activists Ready to Celebrate, Then Agitate

NYC, 04.11.2008 13:38

Long before Bush-bashing became commonplace, radicals were speaking out from Day One and protesting against the policies of the most reactionary administration in modern U.S. history. Now, after eight long years, America stands on the verge of electing a charismatic, highly intelligent, moderate-to-liberal African-American president. So, who doesn’t want to party even if there are many reasons to be wary of Obama’s agenda and the people who are backing him?
Here’s a sampling of a few of the parties going on around town Tuesday night.

Protests continue at Shipley open cast site

United Kingdom, 04.11.2008 10:40

Protesters from Earth First! have invaded the Derbyshire site of the open cast mine twice in the last fortnight. On Monday a number of people climbed onto diggers and machinery, stopping work for over two hours. This was preceded by a highly policed picnic that took place on the site last weekend. On Saturday, local environmental group Erewash and Amber Valley Environment Network (EAVON) held a demonstration of 40 people at the site entrance.

These protests are the latest in a campaign that saw Shipley Lodge, a house on the site, squatted during the summer. The squatters used tunnels and tree houses and it took bailiffs and police an entire week to evict them, at the cost of £58,000 to Derbyshire police. The first court case arising from the eviction collapsed last Monday due to lack of evidence.

Defend The RNC8! Dismiss the Charges!

Portland, 04.11.2008 10:39

Please show solidarity with those still trapped within the St. Paul courts... Below is a petition to dismiss the charges against the RNC 8. Once it reaches 100,000 signatures it will be sent to the Ramsey County Attorney, Susan Gaertner. Please take a couple minutes to fill it out.

["]We the undersigned call for the dismissal of the charge of "Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism," which you have filed against the RNC 8, activists involved in organizing protests at the 2008 Republican National Convention. This use of a conspiracy charge seeks to punish political speech and thought. Labeling these members of our community as "terrorists" sets a dangerous national precedent for persecuting political activists, threatens political dissent, and greatly distorts the concepts of violence and terrorism. We demand the dismissal of these charges and condemn the use of police state tactics of infiltration, surveillance, and militarization of our streets and community to suppress demonstrations and dissent.["]  http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/defendthernc8
