TENANT ACTIVISTS BERATED BY PORTLAND CITY COUNCIL

Portland, 29.08.2009 20:39

Four organizers with Tenant Rights Project used their alloted 3 minute time slots at this week's Wednesday morning Portland City Council meeting to criticize a local slumlord housing corporation and housing commissioner Nick Fish. The council objected to the "harsh rhetoric" of tenants.

Tenant Rights Project started organizing CCC tenants in the fall of 2008. CCC is a $33,000,000 annual budget nonprofit, with 23 buildings and 1400 tenants. There are persistent pest control (cockroaches, mice and bedbugs) problems in several buildings, crime (drugs, prostitution, sex harassment) that has moved into some of the buildings (aided and abetted by CCC managers in some buildings), and lack of transparency: the CCC board of directors has an 'oral preference' that tenants aren't allowed to attend board meetings or to speak at board meetings. Tenants are also forbidden to get copies of board minutes -- a practice that Community Alliance of Tenants (which TRP has been talking with since November, 2008) says may be illegal, under Oregon Attorney General John Kroger rules regarding transparency and nonprofits.

At this week's Aug. 26 city council meeting, tenants criticized Fish's refusal, for six months now, to meet with tenant organizers on these issues. Fish said nothing in response to this complaint. Instead, Fish launched into a long talk about people misusing the First Amendment, likening tenant protesters to the conservative protesters against Obama's health plan proposal. Fish deplored the lack of civility in public discourse, and suggested tenant organizers should "alter their delivery" and use 'less harsh' rhetoric, etc.



FOREST ACTIVIST TO SUE CITY OF EUGENE FOR POLICE MISCONDUCT

Portland, 29.08.2009 20:39

On Friday, August 7, Josh Schlossberg and attorney Lauren Regan of the Civil Liberties Defense Center filed a tort claim notice against the City of Eugene regarding a March 13, 2009 incident where Schlossberg was falsely arrested, injured, and jailed by Eugene Police Department Officer Bill Solesbee while Schlossberg was legally distributing brochures from the edge of a public sidewalk in front of Umpqua Bank in downtown Eugene.

Schlossberg, a local forest activist, was civilly informing bank customers of the irresponsible logging and harmful pesticide practices of Umpqua's chairman of the board, Allyn Ford.

The charges of "intercepting communications" and "resisting arrest" were dropped after prosecutors viewed Schlossberg's confiscated digital video footage clearly showing him legally standing at the edge of a public sidewalk. The tape shows Officer Solesbee illegally demanding he leave-which Schlossberg is in the process of doing, while stating to Solesbee that he believes the officer is in error for forcing him to leave the public sidewalk. Solesbee falsified police reports and attempted to file unwarranted charges against Schlossberg as a result of this incident; and the Chief of police has ratified this dishonest conduct once again.



Teddy Kennedy: The Hollow Champion

DC, 29.08.2009 17:09

Teddy Kennedy's disasters were vivid. His legislative triumphs, draped in this week's obituaries with respectful homage, were far less colorful but they were actually devastating for the very constituencies – working people, organized labor – whose champion he claimed to be. He had the most famous car accident in political history when he drove off a wooden bridge on Chappaquiddick Island in July 1969, saying later that he had failed in several attempts to dive down 10ft to rescue Mary Jo Kopechne, a former aide of his dead brother Robert. She was in the back seat and drowned. Ted quit the scene and called in standby Kennedy speechwriters instead of the police, a misdemeanor which cost him a two-month suspended sentence and any chance of ever following his brother Jack into the White House. He made only one overt bid for the presidency and that was a colorful disaster too. He challenged the Democratic incumbent, Jimmy Carter, then seeking re-election in 1980. After three years, the left in the Democratic Party was bitterly disappointed in Carter's cautious centrism and Kennedy placed himself in the left's vanguard, declaring in a famous speech that "sometimes a party must sail against the wind".



Billionaires for Wealthcare Defuse Town Hall Tensions

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.08.2009 17:08

Health care reform activists dressed as fictitious "Billionaires for Wealthcare" demonstrated on August 26 at a town hall held by US Congress member Anna Eshoo (D) in Menlo Park. The Billionaires brought comic relief to some of the strain that right-wing "Tea Party" protesters, who were at the town hall to demonstrate against health care reform, brought to the event .



Poised to Steal Sacramento's Water, Nestle Moves to Sacramento

San Francisco Bay Area, 29.08.2009 17:08

On July 26th, with a brief back page article, the Sacramento Bee broke the story that Nestle Waters is coming to Sacramento. A glowing article in the Business Journal and a critical article in the News and Review followed, and then the story was mostly forgotten. According to Nestle, approximately 30 million gallons will come from Sacramento's municipal water system and 20 million will be trucked to the plant from nearby "private springs."

После того как вчера завершилась ожесточенная схватка (5 августа, 2009), ночью 100 забастовщиков покинули оккупированное здание (многие были шокированы безжалостностью насилия государства и компании). В завершении переговоров, проходивших на прошлой неделе, последним предложением управления компании было 60%-ти процентам рабочих добровольно уволиться, а 40% взять неоплачиваемый отпуск до тех пор, пока их не вызовут обратно на работу. Переговоры возобновились сегодня в 11:00 утра. В течение их профсоюз согласился на увольнение 52% рабочих, и предоставление отпусков 48% рабочих. Забастовка закончилась и оккупанты готовы покинуть завод в любую минуту.



Акции публичного протеста против строительства АЭС

Belarus, 27.08.2009 07:37

23 августа в регионе предполагаемого строительства белорусской АЭС прошел Антиядерный День Действий. Экологи и анархисты из Минска, Гродно, Москвы поддержали местных жителей, выступающих против опасных планов строительства АЭС.

В воскресенье в г.Островец и четырех населенных пунктах, расположенных близ площадки предполагаемого строительства АЭС (Михайлишки, Гервяты, Валейкуны, Ворняны) прошли встречи экологов с местными жителями, раздача и расклеивание информационных материалов, вывешивание транспарантов.

Пятнадцатиметровый транспарант «Астравецкая АЭС? Дзякуй, не трэба!» был вывешен в деревне Михалишки на мосту через речку Вилия, воду которой планируют задействовать для охлаждения белорусской АЭС.

Транспарант «Нет АЭС!» участники акции разместили на площадке близ села Валейкуны, которую атомщики рассматривают как приоритетную для возможного сооружения станции.

Wg sędziego Trybunału, policjant który oddał śmiertelny strzał w twarz Carlo Giulianiego, działał "w samoobronie" i "nie użył przesadnej siły". Mimo to, Trybunał postanowił przyznać rodzinie zabitego antyglobalisty odszkodowanie w wysokości 57 160 USD.

From WV to WY to You: Tree-sits to halt mountaintop removal in West Virginia

United States, 26.08.2009 09:07

From a Twin Cities activist in Pettry Bottom, W. Va.—Think twice the next time you turn on your computer. The source of most of our energy in the Twin Cities is under attack.

Two people have occupied treetops in the small West Virginian communities of Pettry Bottom and Peach Tree within the blasting zone of a Massey Energy mountaintop removal coal-mining site.

At 6:30 am the two activists, associated with environmental groups Climate Ground Zero and Mountain Justice, unrolled banners reading “Stop Mountain Top Removal” and “DEP – Don’t Expect Protection” from their treetop platforms. The two are perched 80 feet above the ground, within 30 feet of the mine, and within 300 feet of blasting. Regulations prohibit use of any explosives when people are within the blasting zone.
