Showdown With A Torture Judge

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.07.2009 22:39

Cynthia Papermaster and Susan Harman writes: "Ninth Circuit Judge Jay Bybee was confronted by three torture accountability activists in a Pasadena courtroom who called out to him to resign for giving legal approval to interrogation techniques amounting to torture. He was so surprised that he stopped and listened to the three women, Cynthia Papermaster, Susan Harman, and Dianne Wright while they told him he is unfit to be a judge and should resign."

Congrats, Oregonians, for your excellent work on behalf of peace and democracy!

Portland, 08.07.2009 21:38

FROM LIBERTY TREE: On January 21st of this year, Oregonians joined veterans, military families, peace, and other pro-democracy organizations across the country in launching the Bring the Guard Home! It's the Law campaign.

Since then, Guard Home legislation has been introduced in a dozen states, and new efforts are underway in another dozen states. The big highlights of the first half of 2009 were Maryland, Oregon, New Mexico, and New Hampshire. The Guard Home campaign is a long-term effort, and we did not expect to see legislative action this early in the campaign. Yet legislative action we got, with hearings in all four states, and an (unexpected) floor vote in New Hampshire. The highlight of the session was undoubtedly Oregon, where a spirited effort won majority support in the House.

City of Sandy, and Murdering Cop off the hook

Portland, 08.07.2009 21:38

This is now old news, but there may be some who are fortunate enough to have avoided the corporate news for a week or two, so I am posting it here. Fouad deserves all of our attention.

The city of Sandy and the murdering thug with a badge, Willam Bergin (more about him elsewhere) have reached a $1 million settlement with the family of Fouad Kaady, who was unarmed, naked, burned and bleeding (and according to Bergin's own statement, "catatonic, sitting Indian style,") alongside a rural county road when Bergin, and a Clackamas County Depute, David Willard, shot him to death in 2005.

The shooting sparked outrage from the family, and anyone with an ounce of human feeling. Extensive coverage here, at PDX Indymedia finally garnered a modicum of attention and calls for a public inquest even after a not so grand jury, spoon fed by a politically motivated District Attorney, cleared the officers of wrongdoing.
The settlement, entered in U.S. District Court in Portland, means the family of Fouad Kaady has agreed to drop its wrongful death claims against the city and former officer William J. Bergin.

Rose City Antifa Expose Nazi Trash

Portland, 08.07.2009 21:38

On the night of Tuesday, July 7, members of Rose City Antifa posted 200 flyers along NW 21st and 23rd Avenues in Portland, exposing Julian Lee, a white supremacist who has been plastering that neighborhood—-amongst others—-with racist propaganda for months. Julian Lee lives in the St. Francis apartments at 526 NW 21st Avenue. We encourage neighbors and residents to discourage Lee from further propaganda sprees.

California Sea Lions Need Public Protection From Being Killed by Oregon Fish and Wildlife

Portland, 08.07.2009 21:38

California Sea Lions are being killed in the spring at the Columbia River by Oregon and Washington Fish and Wildlife. They eat a small number of salmon, but a senseless policy of killing them to protect salmon is going forward. If citizens got involved and requested this to end, then the Oregon and Washington Fish and Wildlife would stop this. It is just a matter of citizen pressure and media attention.

Elliot Free State Locks Down, Resists Police Raid

Portland, 08.07.2009 21:38

60+ Law enforcement officers(LEO) have arrived to raid Elliott Free State. Protesters respond by locking down to all devices possible. 15 activists respond by locking down to multiple creative and beautiful devices from sky pods and bi pods to a lock down device in the road with an activist's arm locked to the road through the side of the overturned van.

Spirits are very high and confidence of holding the blockade is strong. "Our message to the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) and Roseburg Forest Products is that they permanently halt all logging in the Umpcoos and Fishing Cougar timber sales. Large private forests owned by big businessess are exempted from timber harvest taxes so that when it comes time to fund schools, the public has to foot the bill. I feel like folks are getting tired of this 'Good for Wall Street and bad for Main Street' phrase, but it is still extremely relevant. ODF, change your business practices." said Joshua Partridge of Cascadia Rising Tide (CRT).

Sit/Lie Unconstitutional! Cause for Celebration? Well...Not Really...

Portland, 07.07.2009 19:38

A judge has ruled the Sit/Lie unconstitutional but Police Chief Rosie Sizer released a memo stating that all the judge ruled was that Portland should just use disorderly conduct instead of Sit/Lie. That is not what the judge ruled and her vague memo creates NO meaningful distinction between the Sit/Lie and disorderly conduct. This is not how the city should react to the loss of the constitutional legitimacy of the Sit/Lie. Two many good people have worked to hard on this issue for the Police Chief to take such a step without analysis and public input....

Across the U.S. People Mobilize for Honduras

United States, 07.07.2009 19:07

On June 28th, the Honduran military ousted the democratically elected government of Honduras, detaining and then exiling President Manuel Zelaya to Costa Rica. Indybay reported that the crisis in Honduras began when the military, Congress, and the Honduran Supreme Court rejected an opinion poll that was to be conducted on a new Constitution. General Romeo Orlando Vasquez Velasquez, along with other military leaders, graduated from the infamous School of the Americas (SOA), now called WHINSEC. The following week, rallies took place in many cities in the United States; on Monday June 29th an emergency rally and press conference took place in San Francisco, whil in Los Angeles demonstrators gathered at the Honduran consulate to express their displeasure with the coup d'état against the democratically-elected President Manuel Zelaya, and in New York city, an emergency rally was held on at the UN. On July 1st, people gathered in front of the State Department in Washington DC to demand the U.S. cuts off all US aid to Honduras until President Zelaya returns safely to office, and in Chicago a demonstration took place at the Honduran consulate. On July 3rd People from across Texas gathered in Houston to protest at the Honduran Consulate and in Boston, local leaders of the Honduran community paid a visit to Senator John Kerry's office to demand public statements against the coup.

Since the coup, the new Honduran government under Roberto Michelleti has been internationally isolated and so far unrecognized by any country. On July 5, thousands of protesters had gathered at the airport waiting the return of president elect Manuel Zelaya but his plane was prevented from landing in the Honduras capital. The military fired shots and tear gas at the protesters. Two deaths and at least 30 injured people were reported.

Road Blockade Stops Logging In Elliott State Forest: Call For Action

Portland, 07.07.2009 17:39

Today, a group of Cascadia Earth First!ers and Rising Tide members took action against the continued liquidation and destruction of Oregon's Elliot State Forest. Using sky pods, bipods, road blockades, overturned cargo vans, lock downs and many other beautiful installations, the road to Umpcoos Ridge timber sale has been occupied, held and reclaimed for the forest, the people and future generations.

The blockade stands, and WE CAN HOLD THE ROAD, but NOT WITHOUT YOUR HELP! Please take some time to protect your public land!

Bioweapons, Dangerous Vaccines, and Threats of a Global Pandemic

Boston, 07.07.2009 14:09

Although international law prohibits the use of chemical and bacteriological weapons, America has had an active biological warfare program since at least the 1940s. In 1941, it began secret developmental efforts using controversial testing methods. During WW II, mustard gas was tested on about 4000 servicemen. Biological weapons research was also conducted. Human subjects were used as guinea pigs in various other experiments, and numerous illegal practices continued to the present, including secretly releasing toxic biological agents in US cities to test the effects of germ warfare.

Grand Opening of the Hawthorne Urban Farmers' Market on 5 July

Portland, 05.07.2009 19:39

A revolutionary concept in food delivery will make it's grand debut this Sunday, 5 July @ 43rd and Hawthorne, between 1-6pm. The Hawthorne Urban Farmers' Market is the only one in Portland to feature only ultra-local produce and to accept both cash and barter.

The Hawthorne Urban Farmers' Market is an experiment in self-organization that allows each vendor ultimate freedom to conduct business as he or she chooses. The market is also not affiliated with the Oregon Farmers' Market Association. It operates without fees from vendors but instead, relies upon a gift economy. For instance, vendors pitch in to give the entertainment and lot owners a bag of produce or give goods between each other to exchange what one might call the capital of goodwill.

David Irving’s Holocaust-Denial Speaking Tour: The Show that Must Not Go On

Portland, 05.07.2009 19:39

This July, David Irving, a British neo-fascist and fraudulent historian, goes on the road in the United States, planning to hold approximately one and a half dozen speaking engagements over the course of a month. As militant anti-racists and anti-fascists, we are making a public call for resistance at each stop along the way of this tour.

We believe that fascist activism and movement-building should meet with organized resistance. As the Anti-Racist Action Network states in its Points of Unity:

"Whenever fascists are organizing or active in public, we're there. We don't believe in ignoring them or staying away from them. Never let the nazis have the street!"

We invite you to help this effort along, by organizing in your own community.
