Specifically, the bill states: Prior to issuing state water rights, removal/fill permits or granting state land leases for LNG terminals and LNG-related pipelines, the Oregon Department of Energy is required to conduct a needs assessment to determine whether:

United Kingdom, 05.03.2009 12:09

On Friday 14 February a group from Brighton joined an aid Convoy consisting of 100 vehicles bringing much-needed aid and solidarity to the people of Gaza. The vehicles include a fire engine, 12 ambulances & a boat; they will all be left as donations on arrival in Gaza.

The aim of the Convoy is to provide essential daily-life commodities to the people of Gaza, as well as raising awareness of the plight of the Palestinians throughout the countries the Convoy will be travelling through.

Nine men who were heading to London to join the convoy were illegally arrested by police in an "anti-terror" operation" . Some of their group are now heading toward Gaza after being released. The convoy has travelled through Tunisia , Morocco , Algeria and Libya .

8 marzo del 2009: crisis mortal para el sistema patriarcal

Este sistema patriarcal pretende mantener el acoso al cuerpo, alma, trabajos y deseos de las mujeres. Los feminicidios no cesan, las mujeres siguen siendo discriminadas laboralmente y por se madres i el intento de recriminalitzación del aborto y el derecho al propio cuerpo se ha hecho más evidente que nunca. Por eso esta crisis del sisteman puede ser una nueva oportunidad para las mujeres. Una crisis del sistema capitalista y patriarcal puede abrir nuevas puertas para la liberación de la mujer, però solo si, firmemente, mantenemos la lucha anticapitalista y antipatriarcal.

8 març del 2009: crisi mortal pel sistema patriarcal

Aquest sistema patriarcal pretén mantenir l'assetjament al cos, ànima, treballs i desitjos de les dones. Els feminicidis no s'aturen, les dones segueixen essent discriminades laboralment i per ser mares i l'intent de recriminalització de l'avortament i el dret al propi cos s'ha fet més palès que mai. Per això aquesta crisi del sistema pot ser una nova oportunitat per a les dones. Una crisi del sistema capitalista i patriarcal pot obrir noves portes per l'alliberament de la dona i pot permetre el desenvolupament real de tot el nostre potencial, però només si, fermament, mantenim la lluita anticapitalista i antipatriarcal.

Spanien will mit Manipulation Basken regieren

Germany, 04.03.2009 22:09

Gewonnen haben die baskischen Wahlen klar die moderaten Nationalisten und in Galicien stürzten die Sozialisten (PSOE) erwartungsgemäß ab und die Postfaschisten haben die absolute Mehrheit zurückgewonnen ( http://linksunten.indymedia.org/de/node/586). Nach dem Ausschluss der linken baskischen Unabhängigkeitsbewegung will die PSOE in einer spanisch-nationlistischen Front mit den Postfaschisten  http://de.indymedia.org//2005/07/123455.shtml der Volkspartei (PP) regieren, obwohl sie weit entfernt von einer Stimmenmehrheit sind und die knappe Sitzmehrheit duch die Verbote ( http://de.indymedia.org/2008/12/236498.shtml) nur herbeimanipuliert haben. Die baskische Linke hat sich nicht einschüchtern lassen, mehr als 100.000 Menschen haben die Verbotenen gewählt.



DEQ Suspends Review of Bradwood LNG Project

Portland, 04.03.2009 16:39

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has suspended review of the air and water discharge permits requested by the Bradwood Landing LNG terminal because of two important victories by LNG opponents. DEQ cannot review permit applications if the project is violates local land use laws

First, Clatsop County Citizens for Common Sense passed a referendum on September 16, 2008 that barred LNG pipelines in protected areas.

Second, Columbia Riverkeeper and partners won a challenge at the Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) that overturned the county's approval of Bradwood Landing. Based on these two victories, DEQ has suspended review of all permits for the LNG terminal and pipeline.

African Farmers &amp; Environmentalists Speak Out Against a New Green Revolution in Africa

Portland, 04.03.2009 16:39

Oakland, CA: A new report from the Oakland Institute, Voices from Africa: African Farmers & Environmentalists Speak Out Against a New Green Revolution in Africa, issues a direct challenge to Western-led plans for a genetically engineered revolution in African agriculture, particularly the recent misguided philanthropic efforts of the Gates Foundation's Alliance for a New Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), and presents African resistance and solutions rooted in first-hand knowledge of what Africans need.

The report finds a lack of accountability, transparency, and stakeholder involvement in philanthropic efforts such as AGRA. "Despite the Gates Foundation's rhetoric of inclusion and the claim that their investment in agricultural development benefits the growing majority of the world's poor who rely on agriculture, a leaked Gates Foundation confidential report on their Agricultural Development Strategy for 2008-2011 actually emphasizes moving people out of the agricultural sector,"...

Aviation expansion grounded

United Kingdom, 04.03.2009 12:39

Plane Stupid Scotland activists shut down Aberdeen airport by setting up a golf course on the taxiway and surrounding themselves with security fencing whilst another group occupied the roof of the terminal with a banner reading, “Nae Trump Games with Climate Change”. The 3am action prevented the scheduled reopening of the runway at 5am. After almost six hours the /a>. Eleven people, including local residents, were arrested.

Donald Trump is supporting the expansion of Aberdeen airport where his super-rich friends will arrive to play golf on his controversial golf course. BAA Aberdeen said they welcome Donald Trump's Golf Course which is not surprising as they need rich friends right now. BAA is under presure from the Competition Commision and a /a> has hung a large question mark over the economic arguments for expansion. Expansion of Stansted Airport (which was shut down last December) now looks set to be postponed for at least two years</ a> and the airport will be put on the market without planning permission for a new runway.

Despite government rhetoric about cutting CO2 emissions, there are expansion plans for 34 regional airports in the UK. Last month Plane Stupid activists interrupted a public meeting during a speech by Ed Miliband the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, unveiling a banner highlighting the hypocritical actions of the government in relation to aviation and climate change.

Back in January Plane Stupid activists chained themselves to the entrance of Southampton airport and erected tents at the main entrance in a bid turn the regional airport into a climate refugee camp (they were in court yesterday and fined between £175 and £600 each).

Home Secretary Blatantly Ignores Unfavorable Court Decision

United Kingdom, 04.03.2009 12:09

The Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, appears to have declared war on the government’s own secret terror court, overruling decisions made by judges in the Special Immigration Appeals Court (SIAC). In what can only be described as an act of executive fiat, two men who attended a hearing at the SIAC were driven away from the court, expecting to return home, as ordered by the SIAC judges, but were, instead, delivered to Belmarsh prison, where they were joined by three other men, who had been seized in raids on their homes.

Journalist and author Andy Worthington notes that the whole operation was clearly planned by the Home Secretary in advance. "Even though she had informed neither the men’s lawyers nor the SIAC judges." The first the lawyers heard about it was when one of the men’s wives rang, inquiring why he had not yet returned home. He adds; "the Home Secretary has acted in a manner that would have pleased King John, in those days before England's nobles forced him to sign the Magna Carta in 1215, establishing for the first time that the king had no right to imprison his subjects except upon the lawful judgment of his peers or the law of the land."

US Attorney General Says Obama's Promise to End Medical Marijuana Raids is Now Reality

San Francisco Bay Area, 04.03.2009 06:08

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama, along with other major Democratic candidates, promised to stop the federal government's raids on medical cannabis dispensaries. Federal medical cannabis-related raids continued in January and February. On February 25th, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters that Obama's pledge "is now American policy." However, no laws have been changed.



D Day for Sea Lions: Bonneville Demonstration Report Back

Portland, 04.03.2009 05:38

Yesterday the injunction against killing sea lions, the stay of execution, ran out. Today, government officials commenced with efforts to trap and kill sea lions on the Columbia river. As they expected, they were met with resistance. And, as we expected, they ran like little babies. They mostly scurried away and hid from uncomfortable questions that members of the public might have for them.



The Big Lie of Recession Politics: 'Shared Sacrifice'

Portland, 04.03.2009 05:38

It's everywhere you look and in every speech you listen to. Every time a politician or businessmen talks about the recession, an almost in-synch, repetitive mantra can be heard: "Shared sacrifice, equality of sacrifice, hard choices." Oh my.

There must be something to it, since EVERYBODY seems to be regurgitating the phrase in harmony.

Demonstrators demand immigration reform, an end to raids and to 287(g) agreements

United States, 03.03.2009 15:07

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in downtown Phoenix on February 28 to protest Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and policies that critics argue violate basic human and civil rights. Organizers estimated the number of marchers at more than 5,000; soon after the march began, Phoenix police blocked traffic to Central Ave. and allowed demonstrators to fill the street, because of their overwhelming numbers (the march had lacked a permit).

Among the demands voiced by demonstrators was that the federal government end 287(g) agreements and stop the raids of workplaces and immigrant neighborhoods. The 287(g) agreements allow local law enforcement to arrest people if they are suspected of being in the U.S. without proper documents. Critics point to recent actions by Arpaio as evidence of these agreements' vulnerability to abuse.

"Recently the nation witnessed the ritual humiliation of migrants in a spectacle evocative of some of the most horrific episodes of human history," stated Pablo Alvarado, Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. Last month Arpaio intensified his on-going escalation of attacks against Latinos by segregating the county jail and parading hundreds of immigrants shackled in a chain-gang into "tent city", an urban internment camp surrounded by armed guards, razor wire and electric fencing.

Sea Lions, WDFW, and TOKENISM

Portland, 03.03.2009 03:39

I am writing from the Yakama Nation. And I want to say that I just saw the most shameful thing. It involves video taped footage of a press conference held by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (and also ODFW) at the Bonneville dam. The press conference was to convince the public that these organizations need to, and can safely kill sea lions to protect salmon at that dam. And to make their point, they paraded out a woman presented as a Native grandmother. It was the most shameless display of tokenism I have yet seen, and went mostly unchallenged by the press who eagerly lapped it up and patted her on her head. It was disgusting.

Burning Forests for Electricity and Liquid Fuels: Deforestation is Bad Energy Policy

Portland, 03.03.2009 03:39

Thursday, March 5 -- 6:30 to 8:30 pm [,] Harris Hall, Lane County Auditorium[,] 8th & Oak, Eugene, Oregon[.] free admission

The use of forest biomass for electricity and liquid fuel, currently proposed by our state and federal elected officials, threaten our climate and economic security with little return on energy invested. This presentation will dispel the myths that there is "waste" in a forest ecosystem and that large-scale forest "thinning" projects are needed to reduce fire risks.

Corporations Buying Millions of Acres Around the World

Quoting Slow Food International (SLI), "Saudi Binladin Group is planning an investment in Indonesia to grow basmati rice; tens of thousands of hectares in Pakistan have been sold to Abu Dhabi investors; Laos has signed away around 15 percent of its viable farmland; Libya has secured 250,000 hectares of Ukrainian farmland, and Egypt is believed to want similar access."

Army recruiting? In my neighborhood?

Portland, 03.03.2009 00:39

Are army recruiters harassing your high school aged siblings or children? I was absolutely disgusted to find an Army Reserve flyer on my door today. Nobody at this house is interested in state sponsored murder. They were targeting my younger brother who just had to register for selective service and he too was upset about the note. It was left on our doorknob without a sound, we never heard anybody walk up on the porch, never had a knock at the door. Are they afraid they'll spit on? Well, probably here.

This is essentially just a reminder to call your local recruitment center and tell them to leave you alone! If you have a younger sibling or a child that they send their junk mail to on a monthly basis, let them know it's a waste of a tree (which is also disgusting), that no matter how bad the economy gets no one should be forced to harm other humans for money and that they are not welcome in our communities.

Modesto, Ca: Stolen food left in working class neighborhood

Portland, 03.03.2009 00:39

People of the Valley, Everywhere the desert of capital expands - we offer an oasis to drink from....We, the Robin Hoods, take credit for providing the massive amounts of free food that was left in the Airport District park of Modesto California last week, early in the morning. We chose to distribute this food free of charge because the Airport District is one of the neighborhoods hit the worst by the ongoing recession. Our communities are suffering from homelessness and foreclosure, poverty and job layoffs, police brutality and environmental pollution. Let this act be just a note in the chorus of resistance that will soon bring this system down....In solidarity with those from the streets of Greece, China, Iceland, Mexico, the United States and beyond who are fighting this monster we call capitalism.

Anti-Racist Picnic Confronts Minutemen Racists

Portland, 03.03.2009 00:39

The Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement- Denver and anti-racist comrades held an anti-racist picnic, taunt racist Minutemen and disrupt their meeting. The Colorado Minutemen, a virulently racist anti-Mexican group, held a meeting at the Englewood Library on Saturday, February 21st . RAIM-Denver became aware of the meeting less than a week in advance and was eager to oppose it. With little time to coordinate and promote a large protest, we decided instead to hold a picnic. RAIM-Denver was serving up non-alcoholic wine, cheese, and the best part: crackers.

RAIM-Denver was joined by a couple Denver-area anti-racist comrades, making our picnic only a handful in size. That didn't stop us from getting our point across. As was done at Denver's last confrontation with the Minutemen, klan hoods were offered to the racists as they entered the building. We made some banners also.

RAIM-Denver understands that the U.S. Southwest is land stolen from Mexican and Indigenous peoples. Thus RAIM comrades proudly displayed the Mexican flag. Other comrades held a banner that read,"If you don't like Mexico, get out!"
