Roseburg, Oregon 02 August 2010 - After over one year of pre-trial probation, the activists involved in the July 6-9, 2009 road blockade in the Elliott State Forest have finally faced sentencing. Twenty two of the twenty seven activists arrested plead "no contest," and were found guilty of Criminal Trespassing of the second degree, a class "C" misdemeanor.

The remaining twenty two were divided into three equal groups and seen by three separate judges.

Restitution originally sought by law enforcement and the ODF totaled to more than $100,000 and included costs for catered lunch, transportation, and hotel rooms for the fifty nine law enforcement officers which included members of the National Guard, the Oregon State Police, and the Douglas County Sheriffs office. Most of these claims were found to be unlawful.

Parade Group Challenges Santa Cruz City Permits

Santa Cruz, CA, 03.08.2010 07:08

Lawyers for Wes Modes, charged with participating in the 2009 Last Night DIY New Year's Parade, filed a brief with the court that challenges the constitutionality of City of Santa Cruz rules that require permits for first amendment activities, including parades. In the brief, Modes' attorney Jonathan Gettleman argues that the Santa Cruz City law requiring a permit for parade and protests is "an overbroad delegation of authority to government officials to control free speech and assembly."

Saying No to 1070 on the Day It Took Effect

San Francisco Bay Area, 03.08.2010 01:09

Protests took place on July 29th throughout Arizona, and around the U.S. and Mexico, against attacks on immigrants. These protests happened the day that Arizona's anti-immigrant law, SB1070, went into effect. There were actions in San Francisco, Oakland, and other cities throughout the Bay Area and beyond. A federal judge blocked many of the most controversial parts of Arizona's immigration law from taking effect, delivering a last-minute victory to opponents of the crackdown.

The Toxic Legacy From the Siege of Fallujah Worse Than Hiroshima

Portland, 02.08.2010 23:39

Dramatic increases in infant mortality, cancer and leukaemia in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, which was bombarded by US Marines in 2004, exceed those reported by survivors of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, according to a new study.

Iraqi doctors in Fallujah have complained since 2005 of being overwhelmed by the number of babies with serious birth defects, ranging from a girl born with two heads to paralysis of the lower limbs. They said they were also seeing far more cancers than they did before the battle for Fallujah between US troops and insurgents.

Their claims have been supported by a survey showing a four-fold increase in all cancers and a 12-fold increase in childhood cancer in under-14s. Infant mortality in the city is more than four times higher than in neighboring Jordan and eight times higher than in Kuwait.

Portland anti-fascists protest outside neo-Nazi's apartment

Portland, 02.08.2010 23:39

Early on March 27th 2010 Portland anti-racist activist Luke Querner was shot in what Rose City Anti-Fascists believe was a well planned attack by members of the Neo-Nazi movement. Following the shooting police chose to focus the investigation on the anti-racist activists allowing the fascists to roam free. Luke is paralysed from the chest down as a result of the brutal attack.

This attack is a perfect example of the growing fascist movement in the US, from Nazis patrolling the border to the Tea Party activists spreading racists views thanks in part to popular talk show host Glen Beck, who has his own show on the Fox network, amongst others.

Civil Rights Battle for DC’s Homeless Continues in federal court

DC, 02.08.2010 20:10

Plaintiffs from Franklin Shelter will have a hearing on Wednesday, August 4th, concerning pending allegations of Fair Housing Act, American with Disabilities Act & DC Human Rights Act violations. The need for this case to move forward increases daily. The most recent point in time study released by Metro Washington Area Council of Governments indicates continued increases in the numbers of homeless persons in the District of Columbia.1 And while these numbers have increased, the availability of shelter space and permanent supportive housing has remained stagnant and does not to begin to address the rising need. The result can be seen in a commensurate increase in the number of unsheltered homeless-persons living on the street by 176 persons as detailed in the same MCOG report. Other reports and anecdotal accounts not only confirm this statistical picture, but also reveal circumstances more injurious to the health and safety of greater numbers of homeless persons than are indicated in the report.

Santa Cruz, CA, 31.07.2010 05:09

On July 29th, a diverse showing of Santa Cruz, California residents rallied and marched in protest of Arizona's Senate Bill 1070, a legislative act that is said to be the broadest and strictest anti-immigrant measure in decades.

Nurses United To Vote On Authorizing a One-Day Unfair Labor Practice Protest Strike

DC, 31.07.2010 02:10

This past March, nurses at the Washington Hospital Center were scheduled to begin negotiations with MedStar Health, the company which owns the Washington Hospital Center. Just weeks before negotiations were set to begin, February's record-breaking snowstorms hit D.C., crippling the region. In what may have been a 'shot over the bow,' the hospital violated its own existing policy and fired 18 members of Nurses United who were unable to make it to work during the blizzard. Of these 18 nurses, nine have had their positions reinstated. Audio

An Appeal to Bolivia: Withdraw from the U.N. Occupying Force in Haiti

LA, 31.07.2010 01:39

On July 20, 2010 members of Women of Color in the Global Women's Strike, GWS/LA and the weekly vigil for Haiti visited the Bolivian Consulate in L.A. Their concern: Bolivia's ongoing participation in the U.N. force that's been occupying Haiti since the 2004 coup which removed the democratically-elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. The recent earthquake has been used as an excuse to further militarize most aspects of Haitian society, say sources on the ground there.

[. . .] Bolivia's participation in the occupation has been contrary to the efforts of President Evo Morales to oppose war and exploitation. Bolivia's own constitution is against war (and thus occupation). The delegation asked why Bolivia, which is fighting for self-determination at home, would want to associate itself with the occupation of a country whose president was removed with the backing of the same foreign power which has been trying to topple President Morales of Bolivia and President Chavez of Venezuela?

Now One Step Closer to Developing West Hayden Island Wildlife Area

Portland, 30.07.2010 22:39

Thank you to everybody who wrote Portland City Council and came out to the hearing last night. Council received hundreds of emails opposing development on West Hayden Island and well over 150 people came to the hearing to express their opposition as well. The letters and testimony have been outstanding and demonstrate an amazing depth and breadth of opposition to West Hayden Island Development.

Unfortunately, City Council voted 4-0 (Randy Leonard was absent) to adopt the Mayor's resolution assigning the Bureau of Planning to develop a legislative proposal to allow 300 acres of industrial development on West Hayden Island. The resolution was improved to be more explicit that all development activities would be included within the 300 acres and to require additional analysis into cost/ benefits, alternatives and community impacts, but the bottom line is that the City is now going to spend hundreds of thousands of additional tax dollars moving West Hayden Island closer to development.

Someday this could all be pavement! What's Next

This is far from over. Annexation is still at least a year away. We intend to fight development on West Hayden Island every step of the way and we are planning lots of events over the next year to send an even stronger message. We will continue to need your help.

Protest in solidarity with Arizona against SB 1070

Portland, 30.07.2010 17:09

On the day that the controversial immigration law SB 1070 was introduced in Arizona, over a hundred people demonstrated in Holladay Park against the new law. Portland, Oregon, 29/07/2010

Originally the Act was signed into law by Governor of Arizona Jan Brewer on April 23rd 2010 and it came into effect today ninety days after the end of the legislative session. Shortened to either Arizona Senate Bill 1070 or SB 1070 it is otherwise known as the 'Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighbourhoods Act.'

Members of local collective B Media staged a 'Wedding of the Doomed' in front of the media and demonstrators to symbolise the marriage between the local law enforcement agencies and ICE (Immigration and customs enforcement). The marriage wouldn't have been right without some community intervention, which ended up stealing the show and standing up against the marriage of ICE and the Police.

Fire &amp; Explosions Rock Former Oregon Mink Farm

Portland, 30.07.2010 03:09

Fire and explosions tear through the twice-raided Ylipelto Mink Farm in Oregon[.]

After two successful raids, activists may have once again visited the Ylipelto Mink Farm in Oregon - this time to burn it down.

In the early hours of July 27th, a boat, car, two forklifts, front-end loader, and a barn were all damaged by fire. investigators have not yet ruled it arson, but have noted the farm has been targeted by the Animal Liberation Front in the past.

Owner Henry Pelto stated he awoke at 3 am to the sound of explosions, and found several pieces of equipment on fire.

The owner revealed new information after the fire: after being targeted twice by activists, the Ylipelto farm shut down in December 2009. While the there may be numerous contributing factors in the closure, it may be largely or wholly credited to the A.L.F.

This marks the second Oregon fur farm to apparently shut down after an A.L.F. raid. The S&N Fur Farm in Scio, Oregon was found to be empty in a summer 2009 investigation as part of the Fur Farm Intelligence Project (although there is conflicting evidence indicating the farm may still be open, or reopening in the near future). That farm was raided by the A.L.F. in September, 2008.

Boycott Umpqua Bank

Portland, 30.07.2010 03:09

A banner drop was made today opposite the Umpqua bank on 18th and Alberta street in Portland to raise awareness of the fact that the Chairman of the Board, Allyn Ford, is a timber baron of the Pacific Northwest. Portland, Oregon, USA. 27/07/2010.

Not only is Mr. Allyn C. Ford Chairman of the Board of Directors for Umpqua Bank, but he is also President of Roseburg Forest Products. According to their company history, "The company owns some 800,000 acres of timberland as well as processing plants in and around Roseburg, Dillard, and Riddle, Oregon, and in northern California."

People would like to see a boycott imposed on the bank for a number for reasons stemming from Mr. Ford's forestry company which has used methods such as clearcutting the forest combined with the use of toxic pesticides. Clearcutting or clearfelling is when all of the trees in a harvest area are cut down.
