WOPR Canceled!

Portland, 17.07.2009 16:39

We are thrilled to report that the Obama Administration pulled all six Records of Decision this morning on the WOPR! These forests will again be managed under the Northwest Forest Plan. Please do celebrate this victory for the forests, critters and salmon of western Oregon.

Portland, OR -- People throughout the west celebrated an Obama administration decision to cancel a Bush era plan that would have nearly quadrupled current logging on public lands in western Oregon. The Bush plan, called the Western Oregon Plan Revision, or WOPR, rezoned 2.6 million acres of federal public forests in Oregon managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The announcement came in response to a lawsuit filed by thirteen conservation and fisheries protection organizations challenging the Bush logging plan. Obama administration officials said the Bush plan illegally ignored requirements to protect endangered species living in the forests and could not be defended in court.

ICRC - Israel Traps Gazans in Deprivation and Despair

Boston, 17.07.2009 15:08

Founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1863, the International Committee of the Red Cross is an "impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance." It also tries "to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles." It's legally mandated to do it under the 1949 Geneva Conventions and has had a permanent presence in Gaza since 1968. Currently 109 ICRC staff work there, including 19 expatriates.

Anarchism, Marxism, and Zapatismo

United States, 17.07.2009 14:37

Both Staughton Lynd (a Marxist from the US) and his co-author Andrej Grubacic (an anarchist from the Balkans) of the book Wobblies and Zapatistas: Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism and Radical History, are public supporters of the Zapatistas, who they argue have set a powerful example of revolutionary organizing that should influence anti-capitalists around the world. Much like the historical traditions of the Haymarket Martyrs and the ‘Wobblies’ (the Industrial Workers of the World) in the United States, Lynd and Grubacic argue that the Zapatistas have synthesized the best aspects of both the Marxist and anarchist traditions.

The Freedom School, located at 630 N. Goodman St., is working to provide education that's centered in it's community and meaningful to urban youth. As part of the summar camp program, students are learning to build houses using earthen achitecture, called Eco-domes.

Interview: Inmate Darrell Jones Speaks Out Against Massachusetts Prisons

Boston, 16.07.2009 20:09

Massachusetts ranks high among those prisons that are overcrowded. There is poor medical treatment, according to the inmates, prison racism, abuses, and poor nutritional food among some of the complaints. What Massachusetts prisons do have is a large number of Correctional Officers. In a state that is suffering from unemployment, and an over loaded budget, the hiring of Correction officers don't seem to be affected at all. One Massachusetts inmate Darrell Jones (see other article)could see the abuses and racism in Massachusetts prisons, and decided to watch, take notes, and eventually report on an audio tape what he felt was going on. Upon release of the audio tape on the Internet, the next day he was thrown into "the hole." He was soon transferred from OCCC to MCI Norfolk, where he currently housed.

под Минском прошел анархистский форум

Belarus, 16.07.2009 13:07

С 3 по 5 июля, пока столица Беларуси кишела сотрудниками полиции в честь государственного праздника, в лесу под Минском анархистами Беларуси и людьми, солидарными с ними, был проведен анархистский форум. На форум съехались люди из всех регионов Беларуси, а также из России, Украины и Польши.

За день до начала инициаторы мероприятия заложили его фундамент: создали минимальную бытовую инфраструктуру и организовали пространство для проведения дискуссий. Далее уже к обслуживанию лагеря подключались все остальные: помогали строить печку на кухне, носить воду, рубить дрова, готовить.

В рамках форума состоялись дискуссии, воркшопы и семинары по различным темам, среди них: рабочее движение, антиатомное сопротивление, транспорт, безопасность активистов, АЧК(анархистский черный крест), методы антифашизма, миграция, гендерные проблемы, уличные медики, армия клоунов и другие. Был организован кинопоказ фильма канадской журналистки и писательницы Наоми Кляйн "Захват" ("The Take") о современных…

Brad’s murder is being used to railroad a fellow political activist

“Juan Manuel Martinez Moreno, the man falsely accused of Brad’s murder, is also a part of this movement, also a man of principle. That Brad’s murder is being used to railroad a fellow political activist is the most profound insult to his memory.

&quot;Feeling the Hate in Tel Aviv&quot;, Sequel to the Video YouTube Censored

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.07.2009 19:09

Max Blumenthal writes:"On May 27, journalist Jesse Rosenfeld and I set out on the streets of Tel Aviv to probe the political opinions of young local residents. We started the day filming Jewish and Palestinian Israeli students protested a proposed law that would criminalize public observance of the Nakba, or the mass expulsion and killing of Palestinians by Zionist militias in 1948. There, we interviewed Palestinian Israeli students about the rising climate of repression, then spoke to another group of students who gathered nearby to heckle their Arab classmates and demand their deportation."

Where’s the debate?

DC, 14.07.2009 22:10

Are we watching passively while Barack Obama carries out the same policies as George W. Bush? When an American bombing raid this May killed over two hundred civilians in a village in Afghanistan, it was met with a deafening silence. When Obama’s promised “withdrawal” from Iraq leaves 130,000 troops there for at least two more years and 50,000 permanently, it’s hailed as an end to the occupation. And who is demanding to know just what the mission really is when 30,000 more troops are sent to Afghanistan? Episode One: For Those Who Would Judge Me

But, I can't worry about that guy....Wait; how can I not think of the suicide in this very building - - his family...loved ones? What if he was innocent? Do I know him? How many other people on death row have contemplated killing themselves to escape this madness? I believe that when one dies - - a part of all of us all dies...."



Uyghur Hopes Play Out in the Great Game

G. Hotta, writes: "From ethnic turmoil in Urumqi, to the prisoners at Guantanamo, the Uyghur people find themselves in the global spotlight. But what remains in the dark are Uyghur history, issues and viewpoints. To give context to events that are still un-folding, the Uyghur experience is traced through the lives to two Uyghurs in exile: mainly Alim Seytoff and Uyghur rights activist Rebiya Kadeer."

Mahoney Sentenced to 90 Days; Will Likely Serve 56

United States, 13.07.2009 07:07

Dave Mahoney — prosecutor Richard Dusterhoft's "poster child of the RNC" — was sentenced to 90 days in jail by Judge Paulette Flynn in Ramsey County Court today.  With four days credit for time served plus good behavior, Mahoney will likely serve 56 days of the sentence, making his last day in jail September 2 — the one year anniversary of the Poor People's March on the RNC in St. Paul and two days before the anniversary of his arrest.

Arriving in court wearing a "Defend the RNC 8" shirt and with 20-30 friends alongside, Mahoney put on a sweater before facing Judge Flynn.  Speaking in support of him, attorney Bob Kolstad said that he was "honored to have been chosen to represent Mr. Mahoney," and referenced his close ties family and friends whom he said "are very dedicated to what I consider a valid cause."
