Sea Lion Party in the Gorge! Report Back

Portland, 12.04.2010 21:09

Sea lion defenders held a community building vegan faux fish fry and sea lion party in the Columbia gorge today. Mother nature smiled on the event. On the way up we could see that spring had brought new life into the world again. The trees are all leafing out in tender green again, and the salmon are churning up into the river again. With them, as always, have come the sea lions and the osprey and the eagles and all the others who awaken and return with the spring. Thanks to everyone who turned out! I will let the pictures speak louder than the words.

BART Action Disrupts Trains with &quot;No Justice, No Rush&quot; in San Francisco

San Francisco Bay Area, 12.04.2010 07:10

Over 200 people demonstrated in San Francisco BART stations to push for justice and accountability in the murder of Oscar Grant. Protesters took various trains and chanted "No justice, no rush" -- slowing their walk onto trains in order to disrupt BART's normal rush hour schedule. Police began to try to push or pull demonstrators out of train car doorways. BART trains were disrupted and delayed about 15 minutes in both directions by the action. One person was arrested on misdemeanor charges which have since been dropped.



Collateral Murder: Wikileaks releases video of Journalist Shooting

United States, 12.04.2010 06:07

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.

The military did not reveal how the Reuters staff were killed, and stated that they did not know how the children were injured. More: Democracy Now Interview | Rochester IMC coverage | Buffalo IMC coverage | collateralmurder.com



FERC Approves Ruby Pipeline; Wyo to Malin, OR

Rogue Valley, 12.04.2010 05:40

Recent FERC approval of the Ruby Pipeline proposed to deliver natural gas from Wyoming to Malin, OR happens to be the same location where the Pacific Connector proposed from Coos Bay would enter CA. Local residents, environmentalists and others are concerned that the many miles of pipeline delivering natural gas would also cause significant damage in the event of an earthquake or other natural hazards. Furthermore this distribution into CA is coming at the expense of neighbor states and decreases the chance of CA ratepayers ever obtaining true energy independence.

Solidarity and Repression in Seattle Anti-Police Protest

Portland, 11.04.2010 09:09

Today, Friday April 9, about 80 people came together at Seattle Central Community College to protest the police and stand in solidarity with those arrested for fighting back. Anarchists had published a call-out for West Coast days of action on April 8 and 9 in support of the struggles in Portland and the Bay Area that erupted after recent police killings, and folks in Seattle responded by organizing this protest.
In the days leading up to the protest, hundreds of posters, stickers, and flyers were put up or handed out around the center of the city, criticizing the violent role of the police in our society and urging people to come out to the march.
The protest, which included a small black bloc, a marching band, a group of homeless youth activists, and others, marched through the Central District/Capital Hill area. On the way to the police precinct, people took the streets, though after a little more than a block, bike cops and horse cops responded to shove people back onTO the sidewalk.



Cornelius Cops murder another in likely mental health crisis

Portland, 11.04.2010 09:09

Pigs kill again as a 24 year old "white" "man" was murdered after being tasered and pepper sprayed multiple times this morning just 25 miles outside of Portland. It seems likely that the person was experiencing a mental health crisis as the pigs claim he was partially clothed and displaying erratic and what they are calling violent behavior. He was also doing such things in a rich neighborhood! The cornelius pigs initially on the scene responded to the person with a taser and "wrestling" him. They then called for back up and Forest Grove pigs proceeded to tase the person again also using pepper spray and cuffing the man. In this brutalized state the person stopped breathing and was soon pronounced dead in custody.



Germans Give Americans Lessons in How to Fight Gentrification

DC, 11.04.2010 00:10

By night Berlin has become a battlefield. Each morning reveals new casualties: burned out cars. There have been over 500 in the past three years. These nocturnal arson attacks are part of a protracted campaign of resistance to the city’s increasing gentrification, retaliatory strikes against the loss of areas of the city that have long fostered alternative culture and anticapitalist activity. As more and more residents are priced out of their own neighborhoods, such acts of sabotage have become the last-ditch efforts of the dispossessed…

The Indypendent Issue 149: Nuclear Shock: While Obama touts nuclear power as a green energy solution, Southwest communities resist uranium mining boom

NYC, 10.04.2010 16:09

Indypendent editor Jessica Lee and Indigenous Action Media member Klee Benally report on uranium mining in the Southwest in the latest issue of the Indypendent:

“The American Southwest has again become ground zero in the debate about nuclear power.

Since December, miners have resumed crawling deep into the earth on the edge of the Grand Canyon to mine high-grade uranium ore at the Arizona 1 Mine, which had been closed since the late 1980s. Owned by the Canadian Denison Mines Corp., it is the first uranium mine to open in northern Arizona since nuclear power again became a popular idea in Washington within the last decade. The greater Grand Canyon area faces a possible explosion in the number of new uranium mines.

The price of uranium has rebounded in recent years due to a surge in reactor construction throughout the world and thanks to political support from the White House, starting with George W. Bush and reinforced by Barack Obama. The price has varied from $10 to $138 per pound since 2001, and is currently valued at $41.25 per pound.”

Also in this issue: an interview with the director of an epic film about the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa; a report from Rio de Janeiro on Brazil’s crackdown on street vendors and the poor ahead of the 2016 Olympics; and a first person look at the struggle to save endangered whales from hunters.

Transit Riders Union Protests At Wed Trimet Austerity Cuts Hearing

Portland, 09.04.2010 15:39

21 people commented at two nights of hearings re the proposed TriMet fare hike and bus cuts to up to 60 routes. TRU urges the TriMet board to defeat both proposals from staff, come up with alternate funding, and TRU calls for the TriMet board to be elected (not appointed by Oregon's govenor, which is currently the case).
At the Wednesday austerity cuts and fare hike hearing held by TriMet, Transit Riders Union came out opposing both the five cents a ride fare hike and proposed bus and MAX cuts. 17 people talked at this hearing held at the Portland Building in downtown Portland, all opposing the cuts and fare hike. A hearing the night before at Clackamas Community College drew 4 people who made comments. A third hearing is tonight at a location that TriMet was very unclear about -- the TriMet official told us that the location is close to the 15 bus and to MAX by Mall 205, at Academy School, but he wasn't exactly sure how to get there, etc.



April Bark About to the Proposed Clackamas River Palomar Pipeline

Portland, 09.04.2010 15:39

One of the best ways to help stop LNG development in Oregon is to get on the ground and see what is threatened for yourself. The Palomar Pipeline threatens to clearcut some of our remaining ancient forests in Mt. Hood National Forest. By witnessing our forests as they stand today, you will be a stronger advocate for their future!
For the monthly Bark we will be hiking to the proposed pipeline route along the Wild and Scenic Clackamas River, staying on trail for most of the day. The trail is easy to moderate hiking. We will be hiking approximately three miles. It also provides fantastic views, so don't forget your camera!

Community Studies Major Suspended at UC Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA, 09.04.2010 09:38

On April 7th, UC Santa Cruz issued a statement that the undergraduate Community Studies major has been suspended. The suspension restricts new admission to the major for at least two years. Professor and Department Chair B. Ruby Rich notes that, "Community Studies has roots back to the early days of [UC Santa Cruz] and a devoted following among students, alumni, and community organizations." In an interview with campus radio station KZSC, Community Studies Lecturer & Field Study Coordinator Mike Rotkin stated, "I don't want to be cynical, but there's been a number of programs that have been put on suspension in the past, none of them have ever come back."



Portland Officer Faces Retaliation After Raising Concerns About Nice

Portland, 09.04.2010 05:09

Portland Police officer Thomas Brennan was transferred to the property warehouse five days after going to the media with his concerns about Sergeant Kyle Nice. Brennan believed his sergeant to be under too much stress to be working the streets, and recommended that he be removed from his usual duties.

This was in response to an interaction that occurred when police received a call about two houseless men playing music outside of Huber's Restaurant. Brennan says that he had already convinced the two men to move along when Nice showed up and began yelling that they were not free to leave. Nice proceeded to yell at the two men and, from Brennan's account, use harsh language and threaten the two men with arrest.



Communiqué From the Streets of Portland

Portland, 09.04.2010 05:09

Today, fifty anarchists arrived at five p.m with the intention of taking and holding space at the intersection where the death of James Chasse occurred. At some point during the night, a creative and sneaky comrade had changed the street sign at the intersection to read "James Ave," a tribute to the lost community member who was killed at the hands of the Portland Police in 2006.

Immediately, individuals began to break into affinity groups and carry out the tasks they had agreed to do together. While people began stringing caution tape across the intersection, others grabbed wooden pallets and began to stack them together to create a barricade. Banners were hung across these impromptu structures. Others grabbed trash cans, cardboard and other reinforcements. Soon, a dumpster was reclaimed from a near by business and rolled into the intersection and then overturned. Another dumpster soon followed. These dumpsters soon became drum sets, and voices rose to greet them with chants of "another man is deceased, who's to blame, the police."



The Reporters are to Blame Says DOD, In Response to Video Showing Killing of Reporters

DOD responded to the gun-camera video leaked by WikiLeaks, showing an apache helicopter killing 2 Reuters reporters and seriously injuring 2 children, by releasing redacted investigation reports that blamed the reporters. The investigating officer concluded, “the cameramen made no effort to visibly display their status as press or media representatives;” …“their familiar behavior with, and close proximity to, the armed insurgents and their furtive attempts to photograph the Coalition Ground Forces made them appear as hostile combatants to the Apaches that engaged them.” 2nd Brigade Combat Team Investigation || 1st Air Cavalry Brigade investigation || WikiLeaks Video || Reuters Memorial

Capitol Deal Underway: School Board &amp; Newspaper Lobbyists Throw Public School Students, Parents Under the Information Reform Bus

United States, 09.04.2010 00:37

Educational justice is being compromised in a state known for making kids a priority. The average citizen is about to gain a streamlined, cheaper way to resolve disputes over government data requests (HF2899/SF2354) via the Office of Administrative Hearings, but a glaring exclusion was placed on educational data. In other words, people seeking to resolve conflicts over government data can now go before an Administrative Law Judge instead of suing the government agency in question. However, if the dispute in question involves school records, you still have to file in district court.

Minnesota Newspaper Association lobbyist Mark Anfinson, a leader of the corporatist media lobby, has hyped this bill as an information freedom improvement not intended to create a "privileged class for journalists." Well, that’s misleading, because what it does do is create an underprivileged class of students and parents. Twin Cities Indymedia has found Anfinson and Thomas Deans, counsel for the Minnesota School Boards Association, arranged to cut out educational data from the deal, because the school boards threatened to block the bill, according to interviews (below). This bill may win House passage any day this week, and advocates suggest citizens contact their legislators immediately -- on the Senate side it's now at the Finance Committee.

Below the fold: Edited audio of key House hearings, interviews with transparency & parent/student advocates, how Anfinson & Deans did the deal. More: Earlier HF2899/SF2234 data practices bill coverage: Jon Collins in MnIndependent | AP
