Eugene's Black Tea Society: Emergency Call to Action!

Portland, 10.02.2010 22:39

Recently intercepted communications from the neo-fascist/third-positionist Pacifica Forum indicate that the NSM ( National Socialist Movement, the new name of the American Nazi Party ) is planning on showing up in force to their next event. This we cannot permit. Therefore we, the Black Tea Society are putting out our own call to for anti-fascists from across the state to converge on our city on February 12th to confront the Nazi menace. The Northwest is front line of the the battle against the fascism, many of their ilk are hoping to make this part of the country where they make their stand, it is also where we and all students of history will put an end to them. ( we mean end philosophically of course)

anti-2010 solidarity: local company team sends three snowboarders to olympics

Portland, 10.02.2010 22:39

New Page 1

Local snowboarding-gear company "Grenade "Gloves" boasts on their website ( that three snowboarders from the company team, known as "the army," will be competing at the 2010 winter olympic games, to be held on stolen native land in St'at'imc & Squamish Territories. The three athletes, Greg Bretz, Scotty Lago, and Louie Vito, express excitement and eager anticipation for participating in the olympic games, with no apparent analysis of the harmful impact that the olympics will have on the people and the living environment where it's taking place.

According to, the snowboard and freestyle events for the 2010 games will be held on Cypress Mountain, located near north Vancouver. Cypress Mountain has suffered an onslaught of clearcuts to make room for the ski resort expansion to accomadate the olympics, including 9 new ski runs, 3 new chair lifts, a new lodge, and a "state of the art snow-making system."

Indymedia Reporter Detained in "No Mans Land" on his way to Vancouver Olympics

Another independent journalist was turned away at the US-Canada border Tuesday on his way to Vancouver to cover protests at the 2010 Olympic Games. John Weston Osburn, a long time indymedia activist, drove 2,000 miles from Salt Lake City to cover Games with the Vancouver Media Cooperative. He was interrogated and denied entry into Canada, making him the second US journalist to be denied entry in the last four days.
VMC: After he was turned around, he went back to the US and tried to re-enter Canada, this time at the truck crossing, where he was again denied entry due to past convictions for misdemeanors. This time, he flipped on his video camera to record the experience. Stopped by homeland security, Osburn was again interrogated about the Olympic protests. When he told homeland security that he wanted to speak to a lawyer,

Visiting A Modern Day Slave Plantation--An Interview With St Paul Professor Nancy A. Heitzeg

United States, 10.02.2010 15:08

"Despite the supposedly benign tour at Angola, both students and I were horrified. There is a cavalier attitude, a blasé’ acceptance of capital punishment, mass incarceration and of course little critique of the class and race dynamics of the inmate population—80% of whom are black and nearly all of whom were poor, under-educated and dependent on a public defender at trial. There is passive acceptance and even sometimes celebration of Louisiana’s harsh sentences—it has the highest incarceration rate in the US—and of the fact that 90% of the inmates will die there and 80% will receive no visitors after 5 years."

Bloomberg’s Dilemma: What if the Numbers Don’t Work?

NYC, 10.02.2010 05:44

Whether it is policing or educational testing, political policy cannot be made by numbers alone. And statistics cannot be used to justify the level of violence that was unleashed on African-American and Latino communities in this city in the 1990s. The names of the victims remain with us – Baez, Diallo, Dorismond, Louima and many more – and so to do the policing strategies that produced them.

Chicago journalist and anti-Olympics activist Martin Macias deported from Canada

Chicago, 10.02.2010 05:09

From the newswire: "Martin Macias, Jr., a credentialed freelance journalist who contributes to, the online and new media outlet for Chicago Public Radio, was turned back from the Canadian border late Saturday night.

"[Macias] was a lead organizer for No Games Chicago, the all-volunteer citizens group that opposed the Chicago bid for the 2016 Olympics. Martin was part of the No Games delegations that went to the International Olympic Committee's international headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland and then to Copenhagen, Denmark to deliver materials documenting the reasons why Chicago should not have been awarded the games. Martin was an invited guest a conference critical of the 2010 Vancouver games and the Olympic industry."

Quoting Macias: "I was in the passport line in Vancouver and I told them I was a radio journalist and a student a Malcolm X College. The agent put a big circle and x on my ticket. I was pulled out the line and questioned aggressively for two hours. They wanted to know what I was going to do in Vancouver, who i was meeting with, who organized the conference and what they looked like. They took all my contact information and business cards of journalists and other people I was to connect with while in Vancouver." When Macias demanded to know what his rights were, he was told: "You don't have any." Read more

Visiting A Modern Day Slave Plantation --An Interview With St Paul Professor Nancy A. Heitzeg

United States, 10.02.2010 03:37

I was at Angola with a University-level off-campus class I was teaching on Racism in the Criminal Justice System. Students and I were in New Orleans for a week where we met with Sister Helen Prejean and did some work for the Juvenile Justice Project of Louisiana. I had been to Angola once before and both tours were comparable.

I should say that it is surprisingly simple to get a tour at Angola – just call the Museum, fill out a form and just turn up. No background checks, no IDs and no trips through metal detectors—which, of course, I have experienced at other prisons even when I was an invited speaker. You can and we did even drive our own vehicle through the grounds on the tour with a tour guide who rides along. Of course matters would be much different if one was at Angola to visit an inmate.

All out against the 2010 Winter Olympic Games – Why the resistance?


Portland, 09.02.2010 17:39

At its regular meeting tonight, the PPS Board will vote on whether to accept Resolution 4214, a $320,000 revenue contract for the StarBase program, an educational program funded by the Department of Defense. Students in Starbase get 25 hours of so-called science, math and technology instruction at local military bases. A growing number of Portland parents and community members strongly oppose the StarBase program, because it is used as a recruitment tool by the military and heavily targets low-income youth. They are urging the Board to vote down this contract.

"We oppose the militarization of our children through a science curriculum," says Jessica Applegate, mother of two PPS students. "This program is funded out of the Department of Defense recruitment budget and takes place on military bases."

UPDATE: The StarBase discussion has apparently been pulled from tonight's School Board agenda. The discussion is being postponed till the next School Board meeting on February 22 or March 8.

You will be kept informed.

Greece's Trial of the Century

Boston, 09.02.2010 05:09

On January 22nd, in the remote mountain town of Amfissa, Greece, the trial began of Athens police officers Epaminondas Korkoneas and Vassilis Saraliotis. Korkoneas murdered 15 year old anti-authoritarian Alexandros Grigoropoulos on December 6th, 2008, and Saraliotis is being tried as an accomplice for encouraging the killing. The shooting sparked more than a month of full-blown insurrection, and though it occurred in central Athens, authorities postponed the trial from December 2009 to January 20th, 2010, and moved it 125 miles northwest from the Greek capital in hopes of avoiding more civil unrest.

Radical Botany: Skillshare - Spring plants in Cascadia - Nettles and the potherb

Portland, 08.02.2010 18:39

It is the time of year to begin harvesting in the wild. Spring tonic plants are available due to our warm winter weather. Also, plants used for basketry and fiber are available. Go out in the woods and connect!

here a number of native plants that are very important to health, nutrition and ecosystem support. This is the time of year to start looking for basket-making plants.

Nutritional - Medicinal

There were a number of plants that were known by First-peoples of Cascadia that helped humans survive starvation and nutritional imbalance. Know by Europeans as "Spring tonic" plants, these plants with their new shoots are full of nutrients that are helpful to our well being. For instance- stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) when picked young, can be steamed and eaten in February and March. This plant has been known to alleviate muscle pain, depression and tiredness. Because of the unusually warm weather this winter in Cascadia, I have already begun to harvest young Stinging Nettle. Stinging nettle is often found in semi-wet well drained areas. The plant is often found near Horse Tail (Equisetum arvense).

Independent media reporter rejected at border, detained by border agents &amp; denied contact!

Portland, 08.02.2010 18:39

Martin Macias Jr., an independent media reporter from Chicago travelling
to cover the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver BC, has been rejected by
Canadian border agents and held without outside contact for at least 7
hours (as of 9pm) today.

Macias arrived in Vancouver from Chicago (via Minneapolis) on a 11:30am Delta Airlines flight on Saturday, February 6, 2010. He was detained for hours by Canada Border Services agents in the Vancouver International Airport and questioned about his plans during the Olympics. Ultimately he was refused entry to Canada. He was then put on an Alaskan Airlines flight to the Seattle / Tacoma Airport (departing at 2:40pm). As of 9pm he had not been able to contact legal counsel or his travelling companion since before his rejection at the border. The information on his rejection was only made available through the US Consulate. It is routine for people rejected at the border to be interrogated by both Canadian and US border agents; he may well still be detained for questioning in the USA at this point.

The Indypendent Issue 146: Fighting for Their Schools: Bloomberg's Latest Round of School Closings Sparks a Revolt Against Mayoral Control

NYC, 07.02.2010 22:39

The Panel for Education Policy’s decision to close 19 public schools across the city has ignited a widespread revolt against mayoral control of education. The panel, where the majority of its members are handpicked by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, voted 9-4 to close the schools January 26 even after hundreds of testimonies against the closings and protests leading up to the Panel for Education Policy hearing.

The tensions that arose at the hearing were the product of long-simmering grievances directed at Mayor Bloomberg and Joel Klein’s running of the education system, writes Indypendent reporter John Tarleton.

“Critics say the two men have exercised their power in an arbitrary and reckless manner — reorganizing the system’s administrative structures to be more remote from parents, spending millions on high-priced consultants and no-bid contracts, pushing high-stakes testing regimes that lack a sound pedagogical basis and closing scores of neighborhood schools.

When the DOE announced its proposed school closings in December, it struck a nerve. It was the largest rounds of school closings to date and it hit large high schools that have anchored their neighborhoods — Maxwell and Robeson in Brooklyn, Jamaica and Beach Channel in Queens and Columbus and Alfred E. Smith in the Bronx — especially hard.”

See the links below for all of the Indypendent’s education coverage in this issue.
