Dept. of Defense Expands Operations in Pacific NW: Public Comments Needed to Stop This

Portland, 03.03.2009 00:39

The Navy and Dept. of Defense on behalf of the military industrial complex will be expanding its weapons testing programs in the P.N.W. and that will undoubtedly bring about new environmental insults to the area. More aerosol spraying of the skies, more microwave and sonar, more biological weapons testing, etc. Public comments are needed as are phone calls to your reps. and senators.



Radical Botany: Skillshare #9; Digging in the Dirt

Portland, 03.03.2009 00:39

All this digging is old technology some say. Newer ideas have evolved through the Permaculture movement where "no digging", and "grow what you can on top of the hard pack" dominate the movement. But for me, gardening is more than creating food and providing habitat for creatures that live above the ground, I am tending to the needs of the amazing life that thrives in the soil deep beneath the first few feet of top soil. I am cutting open the hard crust of human civilization to help emancipate, beneficial fungi, earthworm colonies and beneficial microbes.

Sea Lions to be Killed on the Columbia: Stay of Execution Denied.

Portland, 03.03.2009 00:39

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals just denied an extension of the stay of execution for the sea lions of the Columbia river. This means that on Monday, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife can legally begin killing the sea lions of the Columbia river.

This is a tragedy. Sea lions and salmon will both suffer as a result of this flawed plan. Salmon are not in decline because of sea lions, birds, or any other natural predator. Instead, they are dying of human predation. Dams and over-fishing have brought native salmon crashing toward extinction. Twenty million salmon once co-exsited with thousands of sea lions in this ecosystem. Although sea lions, in their role as natural predator, did (and do) eat salmon, they never posed a threat to the survival of the species. Rather, they maintained a careful balance -- as is the case with all healthy predator/prey relationships. Over thousands of years of co-existence with sea lions, the salmon population remained, literally, in the millions. However, the salmon have been no match for the most pernicious, exotic, invasive species of all: Homo Sapiens. Within a century of the arrival of non-Native humans into this region, the salmon population went from twenty million down to less than 1 percent of original numbers. This has nothing to do with sea lions, and everything to do with us. We cannot solve the salmon crisis until we change human predation habits.

I'm heartsick about this. Everyone who cares about salmon, sea lions, and Cascadia should be *Up* *in* *arms* about this... So very little wildness is left in Cascadia. We should all care very much about this.

Climate Rush on a roll

United Kingdom, 02.03.2009 14:40

Climate Rush tackled more climate criminals last week when the UK coal industry got together for their annual 'coal awards'. In a protest timed to coincide with the UK Coal hosted awards, around 15 climate activists paid a visit to their Doncaster headquarters, dressed in Edwardian style complete with red sashes with the words 'No New Coal' written across them. A banner reading 'Leave it in the Ground' was suspended across the entrance.

In London, faced with the prospect of being exposed by the modern day climate suffregette movement, the dirty coal pushers bailed out, canceling their booking at the plush Landmark Hotel and hurrying through their ceremony earlier in the day at Lords Cricket grounds instead.

At the hotel, around a hundred activists rushed into the hotel through a fire exit while police blocked the main entrance. Inside an alternative awards ceremony began, based on the ecological damage that the coal industry is inflicting on the environment. When ejected from the hotel, /a>. The alternate awards continued outside. The Landmark hotel management were less than happy about the righteous fury brought down on them by the climate criminals and invited a couple of the protesters inside to prove that the event had been cancelled. He then pledged that the hotel would not be accepting bookings from such damaging industries again.

Activists Crash Sea Lion Press Conference At Bonneville Dam

United States, 02.03.2009 04:38

February 27, 2009 — Today, activists from the Sea Lion Defense Brigade and In Defense of Animals, along with several autonomous individuals, crashed a press conference held by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) at Bonneville Dam. The press conference was being held to pre-emptively curb public revulsion over the agencies' plans to kill sea lions on the river beginning next week. They actually gave us all hard hats and ID badges.

Activists were there to ask the hard questions that are not being asked by the corporate media. Questions like, "Haven't sea lions always co-existed with salmon on the Columbia river, without posing a threat to either species?" "Isn't it true that dams and over-fishing are causing salmon to go extinct, not sea lions?""Why are you not addressing the salmon crisis in a non-lethal, and far more effective, manner by curbing fishing?" .... Bizarrely, the corporate "reporters" stood mutely by while these questions were blatantly skirted by the people who organized this press conference. When one activist demanded answers regarding the raising of the fishing quotas at a time when salmon populations are imperiled, Diana Fredlund of the Army Corps of Engineers leapt between the questioner and the government "expert" who could not answer the question. Diana brusquely told the questioner that "we are not here to answer questions." ...At a press conference.

SHAC Shakedown City Investors

United Kingdom, 02.03.2009 00:10

On Friday 27th February around 300 campaigners from around the country, and from around the world, traveled for a loud and vibrant march and demonstration in the capital against the financial supporters of Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS), the largest and most exposed vivisection laboratory in Europe.

With HLS’ share price now the lowest in four years, the unjust incarceration of SHAC campaigners and the latest footage of monkeys being abused inside HLS’ labs, angry, passionate and determined campaigners gathered at the Bank of England – the only bank in the world providing HLS with banking facilities. The day of action aimed to publicly show financial investors that anti-vivisectionists will not tolerate puppies being thrown around, monkeys being cut open alive and other innocent animals suffering in silence. The protest was part of a global week of action organised by Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), with actions so far reported in London (1 | 2 | 3), Somerset, Cambridge, Netherlands, Italy, Chile, Sweden, Poland, (1 | 2) France and Russia (Videos: 1 | 2).

First stop was HLS’ largest shareholder Barclays, which saw an impromptu banner drop from the bridge directly above the bank. Activists then moved onto more HLS and NYSE Euronext shareholders (1 | 2), the only stock exchange in the world listing the company after dropping them in 2000 and postponing their listing in 2005. Huntingdon are currently $83 million dollars in debt, without a commercial bank or insurance company in the world prepared to deal with them.

Human rights and community leaders in Mexico continue to experience threats - including death threats. They ask for help from global activists to protect their lives and their community work. Current threats follow previous repression, including the unjust prosecution of local organizers of the Civil Resistance against the high cost of energy in the southern state of Campeche. Last December, in response to an emergency action, letters of solidarity with Sara Lopez and Joaquin Aguilar brought authorities in Campeche to the negotiating table.

DC, 28.02.2009 20:10

Faulty Drug Test Kits Used Widely By Law Encforcement

DC, 28.02.2009 20:10

On Tuesday, March 3 at 1 p.m., the Marijuana Policy Project and Mintwood Media Collective will host a press conference at the National Press Club to release a new report that exposes faulty drug test kits used widely by law enforcement. The study, entitled "False Positives Equal False Justice," reveals that the NIK NarcoPouch 908/Duquenois-Levine Reagent field test kit, the most widely used field test for identifying marijuana, as well as the majority of other drug test kits used as the basis for arrest and prosecution by law enforcement, have an unacceptably high rate of rendering false positives. In addition to testimony by experts in the field, as well as those directly impacted by these faulty tests, experiments will be performed at the press conference that will demonstrate the unreliability of various drug tests and their capacity to render false positives. Natural soap, chocolate and newspaper, among other household items, all will test positive for marijuana and other drugs such as GHB in these drug tests, yet these kits continue to be used in both arrests and prosecutions nationwide.

Christchurch and Auckland Actions Against National's Attacks on Workers

Aotearoa, 28.02.2009 06:10

Yesterday protest actions against the National led government's attacks on workers happened in both Christchurch and Auckland. In Christchurch 30 people held an afternoon picket outside the office of National MP Nicky Wagner to protest the new 90 day probation law. This law change means that all workers in small firms can be fired in the first 90 days of employment with no reason given by the employer. [Report and Pictures] Meanwhile in Manukau City 30 anti-capitalists demonstrated outside John Key's 'Jobs Summit', an elite gathering of 200 bankers, big business CEOs, politicians and union bosses to discuss the financial crisis. One of demonstrators wrote: 'It is hard to begin to explain why we were their but as someone that has lived most of my life in South Auckland the sheer insult of 200 mostly white, mostly male rich business owners meeting in the heart of Manukau to decide the fate of the workers around them speaks volumes. [Report: Protest against Key's Jobs summit] The protest demanded that there be no cuts to workers' wages, conditions and public services, such as health, education and welfare in response to the capitalist crisis. [ Photos from today's 'Jobs Summit'] 'There were some angry exchanges between the protestors and Rodney Hide, some of NZ’s 200 top CEOs and leading bankers, whilst John Key was spirited away without running the red flagged gauntlet.'

Most recently it was highlighted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials announcing the resumption of over 30,000 deportations to a nation reeling from poverty, repression, despair, the devastation from last summer's storms, and occupation by UN paramilitary Blue Helmets - since 2004, illegally there for the first time ever to support and enforce a coup d'etat against a democratically elected president, at the behest of Washington.

Approved Incinerator Expansion Paves Way For Direct Action

United Kingdom, 26.02.2009 23:40

"This is a very sad day for the residents of Nottingham, a sad day for democracy and a sad day for our environment".

Jon Beresford, spokesman from Nottingham Against Incineration & Landfill (NAIL) is not impressed. Local residents and NAIL have been fighting plans to expand Nottingham’s Eastcroft incinerator for the last 4 years. Democracy has been given a severe blow when the government recently over ruled Nottingham City Council and given the green light (or not so green) for Waste Recycling Group’s Planning Application to expand the facility and pollute our environment with more toxic substances and global warming gases.

The government has given the go ahead suggesting that the third incinerator will help fight climate change. "This will help fight climate change no more than building a third runway at Heathrow" argues Beresford. "This throws the governments Climate Change Policy into complete nonsense". Waste Recycling Group, owners of Nottingham’s Eastcroft incinerator originally applied to incinerate an additional 150,000 tonnes (250,000 tonnes total) of waste a year by building a third line in Nottingham City Centre.
