VIDEOS: Anti Police Violence Protest - 4 videos of Portland' stand against police violence

Portland, 08.04.2010 21:38

These four videos are 45 minute average length
Very little editing but some was done for various reasons
Filmed on 3.29.10 on the streets of Portland
A protest to Rise Up in public against the use of Police Violence & Force on citizens of Portland

The most amazing thing is that after the protests the corporate news reports a whole different story than what I filmed and seen as I stood "next to them" for 5 hours

See for your selves ((( i ))) and don't believe the corporate media



The Coming Internet Protection Racket or Rentier Digital Capitalism

Portland, 08.04.2010 21:38

Without Common Carrier status, predatory companies like Comcast will inevitably start demanding a take of any profitable new economic activity dependent on the Internet. They will be able to use the threat of arbitrary service disruption to make demands on independent businesses. They will also start offering "tiered" services, where access to various protocols will be dependent on paying for special "elite" or "gold" subscriber status. Running a website will be out of the question without paying an assortment of special fees, split among a consortium of business interests and justified by appealing to precedents like HDTV and "Trusted Platform Computing." There will be legal and antitrust wrangling over the matter, but how effective has that been recently against digital age would-be monopolists? (Think Microsoft.)

UC Berkeley Rally in Defense of Students Facing Suspension

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.04.2010 21:10

On Monday, April 5, dozens rallied at UC Berkeley to protest the university's crackdown on student protests. Over 100 students are facing possible suspension for participating in last semester's protests against budget cuts, furloughs, and tuition hikes -- among them, participants in last November's occupation of Wheeler Hall and last December's Open University.

Officer involved in Chase death pulls gun on motorist

Portland, 08.04.2010 08:39

The Portland Mercury Blog reports that officer Kyle Nice pulled a gun on a motorist after a traffic altercation between him and said motorist. Officer "Nice" seems to be getting away with it for now.
The preliminary details of this incident can be read here:

Whilst the police report of the Washington County Police can be downloaded here:

 http://www.mediafire.com/?wtzmh33oy3a

Let's ask ourselves why on earth a Portland Police officer literally blasts away a homeless man who is shambling about in an uncoordinated manner with a tiny blade and clearly no ability to do damage to somebody trained in the use of force, whilst the Washington County Police don't kill a man who does not even deny pulling a gun on another human being.

I urge you all to remember that in this as in all the other recent and not so recent cases, silence is approval and the only thing that is needed for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing.

See you in the streets.

Dooda Desert Rock events

Portland, 07.04.2010 18:38

The community of Chaco Rio in the Navajo Nation (SW of Farmington, New Mexico) has been blockading entry to the site of a proposed 1,500 megawatt coal fired power plant since December of 2006. Desert Rock would be the third coal plant within a 20-mile radius in a region already suffering from extreme levels of toxic emissions.

As part of a west coast speaking tour, Elouise Brown, Dine (Navajo) traditionalist and president of the Dooda Desert Rock committee, will speak about dangers posed by the coal industry, the exploitation of indigenous land by energy companies, and the ongoing struggle to prevent the Desert Rock plant from ever existing.

Everyone To The Streets!

Portland, 07.04.2010 17:38

ALL OUT for a march and demonstration in Olympia against the violence of the police, in solidarity with our Portland and Bay Area friends and all of West Coast resistance to the brutality of the state.

OLYMPIA THURSDAY, APRIL 8TH
@7:30pm.
MEET: at the corner of the shopping center on Harrison and Division.
MARCH: Downtown.
WEAR: Black, or whatever you want, to honor the dead.
DEMONSTRATE: YOUR CONCERNS.

You are invited to participate in Days of Action on April 8th and 9th in response to the recent murders of Jack Dale Collins and Aaron Campbell. These murders are the latest perpetrated by the Portland police, which follow the murder of Oscar Grant months ago in the Bay Area.

AND LEST WE FORGET: the Olympia Police Department has blood on its hands as well, of course. It is the blood of Jose Ramirez-Jimenez who was shot and killed by Olympia officers Paul Bakala, Mike Hovda, and Chuck Gassett and Stephen Edwards, murdered by Olympia police officers Paul Bakala and Jeff Jordan who were rewarded by their masters with a paid vacation after the killings and praised by the local newspaper The Olympian.



Anti-Police General Assembly, Friday April 9th!

Portland, 07.04.2010 17:38

This Friday, April 9th at 5 PM, we are calling for a general assembly to meet at NW Everett and 13th (the intersection where James Chasse was fatally beaten by the police two years ago) to begin discussing a response to these armed gangs of police. Bring your experience, your ideas, your neighbors, and your open ears. Come prepared to listen, to speak, and to act.
In the past two months, the Portland Police murdered two men in the midst of mental health crises. Aaron Campbell and Jack Dale Collins join the growing roster of those who did not have to die, those murdered by the police and the lack of mental health services in our communities. Those who deserve services are given bullets and beatings instead, and the police continue to act with impunity.



OLIN STUDY GROUP APRIL 2010: on the global and local scope of police violence

Portland, 07.04.2010 17:38

Monday April 12 2010 6pm
In Other Words Women's Books and Resources
8 NE Killingsworth

Olin hosts a study group the second Monday of every month from 6-8pm at In Other Words*. Each month we choose a different theme and read an article for discussion.
While every month is different, past discussions have revolved heavily around how our background in international solidarity work can be applied and manifested locally. On what we can learn in our struggles here at home by looking across the borders and also how our work is unique.

This month we chose an article written with that in mind, with the intention of making those connections. While this article focuses on events in Minneapolis and Oaxaca specifically the local and international relevance at this moment should be clear:  http://elenemigocomun.net/3050/x/en

Collateral Murder

Portland, 07.04.2010 02:08

WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad -- including two Reuters news staff. Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded. For further information please visit the special project website www.collateralmurder.com.

ANOTHER NIGHT TRAPPING AT THE DAM: Was Solo Trapped?

Portland, 06.04.2010 18:39

There has been another night trapping at Bonnevlle dam, trapping sleeping animals as they lay hauled out on the platforms. We do not know at this time how many sea lions might have been taken, or who they are.
SLDB monitors reporting from the Sea Wolf One could hear the activity in the dark. At around 4am, they heard the gate clanking open, and turned a spotlight onto the area. The light flooded over agents who had hoped to be in and out of there under cover of darkness, but monitors were able to see what they were doing anyway. The same sad ritual of removal. It is believed that Solo may be among the trapped and probably doomed animals.

Homes Not Jails Occupy a Vacant Mission District House

San Francisco Bay Area, 06.04.2010 11:10

On Sunday, April 6, Homes Not Jails took over a building in San Francisco's Mission District that has been empty for two years. The occupation lasted for 24 hours until the SFPD and the landlord came battering at the door. The house is the former home of 80-something Jose Morales, who had lived there since 1965 and fought off eviction attempts for 14 years. Morales was finally kicked out of his home of 43 years through the Ellis Act, a state law that caused over 3000 families to lose their homes in San Francisco.

One of the worst criminals in these dis-united states has been invited to speak tonight at Lewis & Clark College. Instead of rotting away in a jail cell, this neocon thug was asked to participate in Lewis & Clark's 48th Annual International Affairs Symposium. It seems only fair that we the people show up tonight to protest Lewis and Clark's stupidity and criminality (yes, criminality!) by inviting this warmongering scum to their campus!

We Need To Support Net Neutrality

Portland, 05.04.2010 23:39

Comcast, AT&T and Verizon have deployed hundreds of lobbyists in a final push to kill the open Internet. Their goal: Take control of Internet content away from Internet users. Their tactic: Tell outrageous lies about Net Neutrality ? which is the only thing stopping them from interfering with your online experience. Free Press and our allies in the Save the Internet Coalition are gathering hundreds of thousands of signatures to show the FCC that Internet users -- and not corporations -- should control the Internet.

You now have four days left to convince the FCC that these companies are wrong.

Debunk Their Junk; Demand Net Neutrality.

Date: April 1, 2010
Institution Targeted: University of Utah

Received anonymously:

Salt Lake City, Utah

It may be april fools day, but the last thing we were doing was fooling around.

On the morning of april 1st, our cell visited the homes of three vivisectors from the University of Utah who have been known to test, torture, and kill many animals from local shelters in unjustified 'scientific' experiments. Unlike their drunken, wife abusing colleague Audie Levanthal who decided to quit vivisecting at the U of U after pressure from underground activists, these vivisectors decided to stay, praying that the new laws & legislation's against Above Ground Activists would help protect them. Well we aren't above ground activists & laws won't stop us from doing what is right & helping animals.

Why damage police property? Exploring some of the recent activities going on around PDX

Portland, 05.04.2010 18:39

Q: I don't understand why angry people would damage police property. I heard that the Portland Police Union headquarters was recently vandalized, and there was $20,000 dollars worth of damage. I can see why people might be mad about police conduct, but this ultimately just hurts me, the taxpayer. So why did it happen?

A: $20,000 is just not that much money when you think about how many taxpayers there actually are. The expense from this damage probably translates to less than a penny for individual taxpayers. Now $4,559,146.62 on the other hand is a significant sum. That's how much of taxpayers money has been payed out in recent years by the City of Portland in Police Incident settlements, meaning settlements to people wronged by police misconduct: things like excessive force, wrongful arrest, wrongful use of force leading to death, etc. If there's anything taxpayers should feel justified in resenting, it's that police violence is costing us this much money...

On 3/29, people from Portland marched down from PSU for over five hours in the rain in response to a murder by the Portland Police of one of our own. On that same day, police on bikes, horses, cars, mopeds, and even a chopper, armed with tear gas, guns, and batons, physically attacked demonstrators and even passers by, blocked streets, shouted at us, and demonstrated to us and onlookers the reality of the police state we live in.

Busy start to 2010 for Notts hunt sabs

United Kingdom, 04.04.2010 18:09

It has been a busy start to 2010 for Nottingham hunt saboteurs who have been sabbing in collaboration with sabs from Sheffield and Leeds. Hunts across the Midlands and North of England have been sabbed, in some cases for the first time in several years. The Lunesdale hunt on the Cumbria/North Yorkshire border, for instance, hasn't been sabbed in more than 20 years.

In spite of the legal ban on hunting with hounds coming into force in 2005, most hunts continue as they did before. The police, used to protecting hunts and repressing saboteurs, have changed little in their approach. Hunt saboteurs use direct action to save the lives of hunted animals.

It isn't just foxes which have been saved. Sabs have also intervened to stop ferreters and hare coursers. Now the hunt season is over until August/September, local sabs are considering sabbing some mink hunters in the summer and willl be working to protect badgers from baiting in South Yorkshire, and from culling further afield, from May.
