Digging for Truth in the Tyquan Rivera Case

United States, 22.02.2009 01:08

On Jan 31st, a police office was shot in the back of the head while on duty in the city of Rochester. Tyquan Rivera, a 14 year old, Rochester youth confessed to the crime and is in police custody awaiting trial. As the corporate media and city officials work to take questions about police-community relations (in other words police brutality) in the inner-city off the table (Commentary by Howard Eagle), evidence is appearing that this case is far from simple.

Last week, WDXK received an anonymous email — they didn't announce the person's name or school — and read it over the air, testifying that Tyquan Rivera was attacked by the police earlier that night [...] The content of this email is being widely discussed in the city, but the corporate press have not spent any effort to report it...

Tasering victim going to court

Portland, 21.02.2009 20:09

Tom O'Connor was tasered in front of Imbibe at 23rd and Hawthorne[.] October 15th, 2008.

As he recalls it, he was sitting outside at the tables enjoying a beer, with his dog tied up, infront of the bar where the bartender had grown accustomed to putting water out for another dog he'd had, who'd had kidney problems, and who had died the day before. The bar owner also liked tom's dog, as did the veterinarian who frequently came out to pat the dog, or the one before this one. He was not intoxicated(according to the Fire Department, which removed the taser leads), nor was he doing anything wrong.



From Slavery to Obama: The Struggle for Black Liberation

Portland, 21.02.2009 20:09

Public Meeting. From Slavery to Obama: The Struggle for Black Liberation
Thursday, February 19th, 7:15pm. [,] Portland State University [,] Smith Center Room 333
sponsored by International Socialist Organization

Obama's election dealt a historic blow against racism. At long last, a popular majority elected an African-American to the U.S. presidency in a country built on slavery. Yet as Obama takes office there are still more Black men in U.S. prisons than there were slaves in 1840, and they are being used for the same purpose; working for private corporations at 16 to 20 cents an hour. Half the states have private, for-profit prisons, whose lobbyists are demanding longer mandatory-minimum prison sentences. Indeed, American Blacks are incarcerated at nearly eight times the level of South African blacks during the height of apartheid.

We stand, we fight, we go to jail and tomorrow we will do all again! outside of earl blumenauer's office[.] The next time you hear some jackass say, "Why are there no protest going on?" Make a copy of this list and give it to him/her and smile. We are resisting in every way possible and things will change or this republic will fail. These are the true heroes and there are many not on this list, this is just what David and National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance put together for 2008/09.

I thank and honor all of them who sacrifice their liberty and safety to protect you and me. There are many sitting in jails and prisons around this country this minute take a moment and just say 'THANKS.' We will be on the corner across from the fed building in case you want to spend a few minutes defending our republic and demanding the new administration kept their promise, "... .No one is above the law...

This oughta get interesting: Bergin pleads not guilty

Portland, 21.02.2009 20:09

And the plot thickens! Bill Bergin pleads not guilty; seeks trial.

Since he was caught red-handed with the damning evidence, I'm quite curious to see how Billy-boy and his attorney have to spin this to try to get him off. At the very least, the whole thing doesn't get swept under the rug with some back door, confidential plea agreement. But wait.... Bill Bergin, former Sandy cop and one of the infamous killers of the unarmed, grieviously injured Fouad Kaady, pled not guilty in Clackamas County Court last Friday to charges of felony identity theft, first-degree official misconduct, and (the, IMO, rather odd charge of) "use of an invalid driver's license," according to the Sandy Post. [I don't know what the official charge SHOULD be, but taking people's drivers' licenses (without charging them so there would be no paper trail, it should be noted) and giving them to minors so they can go drink in bars, sounds like more than "use" of an "invalid" license, don't ya think? How about ILLEGAL use of STOLEN licenses to CORRUPT MINORS?? Geez. Get real.]

Next Radical Childcare Meeting! [TODAY 2/21]

Portland, 21.02.2009 20:09

The PDX Radical Childcare Collective is in the process of forming and we invite everyone to come to our second meeting Saturday 2/21 at 12:30pm. It will be held at the Calvary church at 126 NE Alberta, and in room childcare will be provided.

Our current goal is to start off providing care for activist organizations and insta-action care, and then eventually mold into more needed roles. We believe this is an important step as parents voices are often not at the table when movement decisions are being made that have a great impact on their lives.



Multnomah Co. Extorts the Poor/Protects the Criminals!

Portland, 21.02.2009 20:09

Dear Judge McShane, On Friday Feb.6, 2009 I was in your courtroom when I pleaded 'no contest' to one charge of criminal mischief. This charge stemmed from a violent incident last June (Sat. 6/07/09) in which I was assaulted by two strangers while I was on my way to work. During this assault, I was thrown through a store-front window of a business. In the wake of this assault, in a split-second of misjudgment on my part, I broke a 2nd window out of distress, un-intentionally. 2 days later, I was fired (because I was prevented from making my peaceful way to work that Saturday night) & I've been un-employed ever since. I've explained my financial situation in court - that I'm living off of un-employment insurance & food assistance & nothing else; that I'm currently in debt, whereas, no debt existed [for myself] prior to last June. I thought this much was understood, as my [court-appointed] lawyer's fees were waived & I agreed to the terms of my probation, including community service.

But I received a letter last week stating that I owe $67 in court costs. Further more, the letter also states that if I don't pay this amount within 30 days, an additional $50(?!) will be added on! This additional $50 amounts to a POVERTY FEE...



A Simple Solution to the States' Budget Crises

Portland, 21.02.2009 20:09

On February 16, in Salem, Oregon a rally of more than 5,000 students, teachers, parents, and social service workers assembled in front of the state capitol, demanding a solution to the state's financial crisis.

This was but one of many similar protests nationwide; and Oregon is par for the course when it comes to U.S. states neck deep in a budget crisis. It is estimated that, unless other sources of revenue are raised immediately, the state will make $800 million in cuts... by June. The projected deficit for the next two years is $2.5 billion.

No a Noa

Euskal Herria, 21.02.2009 10:09

El proximo 26 de febrero la cantante israel� Noa va realizar un concierto en el Kursal de Donostia. A pesar de su discurso de buena embajadora de la paz, Noa no denuncia las acciones criminales de su gobierno hacia la poblaci�n palestina. Aun m�s, la �ltima ofensiva del gobierno Israel� hacia Gaza que ha dejado 1400 muertos y m�s de 5500 heridos, ha sido justificada por la cantante en una carta abierta en la que culpabiliza de todo lo ocurrido a Hamas llegando a decir frases como "S�lo puedo desearles que Israel haga el trabajo que todos necesitamos que se haga, y finalmente los libere de ese c�ncer, de ese virus, de ese monstruo llamado fanatismo, hoy llamado Hamas". Desde diversos ambitos se le ha contestado a esta carta, como el director de cine Udi Aloni, hijo del activista israel� pacifista y de izquierdas Shulamit Aloni.

Diversos grupos han pedido, como parte de la campa�a de boicot internacional exigiendo el veto constante a la participaci�n oficial de Israel en cualquiera de las iniciativas de car�cter cultural, acad�mico, cient�fico o deportivo en tanto no respete los Derechos Humanos y derechos nacionales del pueblo palestino, que las diversas instituciones que apoyan el concierto retiren su apoyo y que los organizadores del evento lo suspendan.

El ayuntamiento de Donosti, principal apoyo de Donostia Kultura, la iniciativa organizadora del evento aprov� el pasado 13 de enero una declaraci�n institucional de condena de la agresi�n israel� y de solidaridad con el pueblo palestino, en la que, asimismo, instaban a los gobiernos a suspender todas sus relaciones con Israel. �Y ahora nos vienen con esto?. No podemos continuar siendo c�mplices. Tenemos el derecho, y la obligaci�n, de presionar a nuestros gobiernos para que tomen medidas contra Israel.



Eine Stadt im Generalstreik gegen die Krise

Germany, 21.02.2009 09:09

Lebrija ist eine Kleinstadt rund 60 km südlich von Sevilla. Seit dem 18. Februar ist der Ort mit seinen 26.000 EinwohnerInnen schlagartig berühmt geworden - als erste Stadt Spaniens, in der die Bevölkerung einen Generalstreik gegen die Krise und gegen die Vetternwirtschaft der Kommunalregierung durchgeführt hat. Organisiert wurde dieser Streik, an dem sich zwischen 90 und 95 Prozent aller Beschäftigten beteiligt haben, von der anarcho-syndikalistischen Gewerkschaft CNT und einem EinwohnerInnen-Komitee, das Erwerbslose vor einigen Wochen gegründet hatten.



Stop Illegal Detentions of Filipino Trade Union Activists, Stop NZ Aid to Philippine police, military

Aotearoa, 21.02.2009 04:41

Stop Illegal Detentions of Filipino Trade Union Activists, Stop NZ Aid to Philippine police, military – APS 20th February 2009 Auckland-Philippines Solidarity, a group of New Zealanders and Filipino activists advocating for human rights in the Philippines, today condemned the new charges of murder filed against trade union solicitor, Atty. Remigio Saladero Jr., and five other trade union and social justice activists, barely a week after they had been released from three months imprisonment. "We are outraged at the continuing human rights abuses targeting trade union organisers and political activists in the Philippines. Contrary to claims of undergoing human rights training, it's clear that police and military forces have little regard to human rights as they continue to arrest and detain innocent civilians. We therefore urge the New Zealand government to think twice before pledging NZ aid for the Philippine police-military in the next 5 years," Luke Coxon, APS spokesperson and union organiser in Auckland, declared.

Херсон: рабочие захватили завод

Belarus, 20.02.2009 20:37

Сегодня рабочие Херсонского машиностроительного завода захватили административное здание предприятия и собираются удерживать его до приезда правительственной комиссии и выполнения своих требований. Рабочие требуют погашения всей задолженности по зарплате.

Люди требуют провести национализацию завода под контролем коллектива предприятия. “Необходим госзаказ на производство комбайнов и сбыт комбайнов при поддержке государства”, – сообщил представитель совета трудового коллектива завода.

Jardineria solució!

Des de fa mesos els jardiners del petit poble de Sant Just Desvern, al Baix Llobregat, estan en lluita per la dignitat del seu lloc de treball, en solidaritat amb els seus companys acomiadats i per una bona qualitat en el servei. Durant tot febrer estan en vaga total per aquestes reclamacions fins que l'empresa ACSA i l'Ajuntament del PSC i ICV entrin en raó.
La jardineria a Sant Just Desvern és un exemple de les conseqüències de la privatització dels serveis públics, que obre camí a la mercantilització dels béns comuns, al malbaratament del diner públic, a la precarietat laboral i a la corrupció política. Però al mateix temps és un exemple de que la resistència i la ofensiva obrera és possible. Per donar recolzament a la seva lluita s'ha obert una Caixa de Resistència.

Stars and Award Organizers Asked to Boycott Tainted Leviev Diamonds at Oscars

Adalah-NY and Jews Against the Occupation-NYC (JATO-NYC) have called on 16 Hollywood PR firms and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to ensure that no stars wear Leviev diamonds at this Sunday’s Academy Awards. In a two week campaign involving letters and dozens of phone discussions with PR firms, the groups drew attention to Leviev’s violations of human rights and international law in the occupied West Bank where his companies build Israeli settlements, and in the diamond industry in Angola and Namibia. Leviev reportedly controls one third of the world’s diamond mines.

Why is Chuck Turner in Handcuffs?

Boston, 19.02.2009 16:09

The Boston media used a grainy photograph released by the FBI to conclude that Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner is guilty of extortion. But the accompanying FBI affidavit, when shorn of speculation and irrelevancies, is a decidedly unconvincing document that fails to provide a legitimate law enforcement justification for the targeting of Turner. Could it be that Chuck Turner’s history as an outspoken critic of the FBI had something to do with his being targeted?
