Medford Walmart heads towards Oregon Supreme Court

Rogue Valley, 13.12.2009 14:09

Medford, Oregon, December 11, 2009--Medford Citizens for Responsible Development (MCRD) has not given up on the fight against powerful Walmart's legal team and the Superstore planned for South Medford. The fight continues and so do the worries about traffic congestion. Building such a monster store will bring on a super traffic nightmare, yet Medford refuses to do a traffic study which is required in their code. The area is already becoming a traffic nightmare even without building a Walmart Superstore.

MCRD has now petitioned the Oregon Supreme Court requesting a review of the earlier Court of Appeals Decision to Overturn a LUBA Ruling in the Matter of Requiring a Traffic Study for the Wal-Mart Superstore. (LUBA is Oregon's Land Use Board of Appeals)

We anticipate a decision by the Court to consider our appeal within 30 to 60 days.

Attached below is the petition for review delivered by MCRD's attorney to the Oregon Supreme Court earlier this week.

O presente está em jogo. O futuro é incerto. Manifesto “Copenhaga, por um planeta, livre, justo, Comúm”

Galiza, 12.12.2009 12:09

O presente está em jogo. O futuro é incerto.
Entre o 7 e o 18 de dezembro terá lugar em Copenhaga (Dinamarca) a
Conferencia sobre o Cambio Climático auspiciada pola ONU e sustentada
globalmente no paradigma do “capitalismo verde”.
No plano mediático esta-se a simplificar a cimeira dentro do marco da
redefiniçom das emissons de CO2 a nivel global. Por desgraça, a agenda da
cimeira COP15 e a realidade do planeta é muito máis complexa. Complexa
pois atopámo-nos no tempo objetivo da crise económica e financieira e
semelha que, com a governanza climática do planeta em jogo, grandes
reajustes podem vir dados em Copenhaga desde xs poderosxs da terra para
perpetuar um sistema produtivo, um modelo de consumo e umha estructura de
dominio que nos tem levado a caminhar no umbral da modificaçom radical do
mundo e da natureza até agora conhecidos.

Cracks in Mumia’s case

United States, 11.12.2009 19:37

A clear case of open-and-shut guilt is how Philadelphia police and prosecutors describe the first-degree murder conviction that sent journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal to death row over a quarter century ago. However, just a quick peek underneath the surface of this case reveals a litany of errors and wrongdoing by police, prosecutors and judges that implode all claims of Abu-Jamal’s absolute guilt.

Editorial Cartoon: Oaf Keeper

WHEN THE TEABAGGERS JUST AREN'T WHACKED ENOUGH Between the Teabaggers and the Birthers, I'd thought I'd pretty much seen the pinnacle of evolution for Rightist nutcakes. Then, the Oath Keepers showed up, a bunch of current and retired military and cops howling about the new dangers to the Constitution they've sworn to uphold with all the bluster they can muster on a Web site which, like all similar right-wing sites, is hopelessly swimming in military and Revolutionary War-era metaphor and imagery. Oh, and don't forget to check out their video, in which they declare their intent to disobey their Top Ten Unjust Orders with a lush backdrop of inspiring patriotic and military imagery and overwrought music. Yeah, you might think we Lefties get a bit over the top, but for sheer Drama Queen goodness, you can't beat the Right Wingnuts…

A Scrooge &quot;Merry Christmas&quot; to Kennedy-Warren Tenants

DC, 11.12.2009 19:09

KENNEDY WARREN LANDLORD B.F. SAUL ATTEMPTING TO SUBVERT EVICTION PROTECTIONS FOR TENANTS! The landlord "power that be" at The Kennedy-Warren are coercing tenants to agree to "temporary evictions" in order to make what it claims are "necessary repairs" (under the 501(f) "relocation" provisions of the law). According to some tenants, because of clogged sinks and blown fuses, Saul is claiming the need to tear open the walls of all units, install clothes washers, lower the ceilings, alter closet space for cable installation, and of course, to evict the tenants to do such "pressing work". Threats to implement huge increases for utilities and other improvements face tenants who refuse to sign on the dotted line or who assert their rights.

Przed szczytem klimatycznym ONZ i w trakcie rozmów w Kopenhadze, dziesiątki tysięcy demonstrują w Europie domagając się Klimatycznej Sprawiedliwości.

By zapobiec brakowi miejsc w aresztach, władze Kopenhagi zamieniły opuszczony magazyn piwa w prowizoryczne więzienie dla "niepokornych" demonstrantów z kilkudziesięcioma stalowymi klatkami mogącymi pomieścić ok 350 osób.

Rogue Valley, 11.12.2009 14:09

"Toxic Uniforms: Behind the ‘Made in USA’ Label" is a new report released on December 10, 2009, International Human Rights Day

This report is highlighted by the Ashland Sweatfree Campaign who successfully worked with the City of Ashland, which first adopted a sweatfree resolution and followed up with a no-sweat-shop policy for the procurement of uniforms & garments for city employees. In April, 2009 the campaign brought to Ashland a speaking tour with Rafael Irizarry, a garment worker at Propper International in Puerto Rico, who is featured in this new report. Photos of Irizarry taken during his Ashland visit can be viewed below.

Ongoing educational work by the Ashland Sweatfree Campaign has included an art exhibit of women garment worker paintings on display in the Ashland Council Chambers in November, 2009. The Campaign is a project of Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice and its ad-hoc committee is composed of the following Ashland residents: Pam Vavra, Rich Rohde, Brenda Gould, Steve Ryan, Eric Navickas, Jason Houk and Wes Brain.

Two photos taken April 4, 2009 during speakers' tour at Southern Oregon University- In the first photo Rafael Irizarry holds up a garment made in his Puerto Rico workplace for the United States military. The second photo shows Rafael Irizarry front row on the far right.
