A Combat Brigade Leaves; U.S. War of Terror Against Iraq Continues

DC, 20.08.2010 00:10

A Combat Brigade Leaves; U.S. War of Terror Against Iraq Continues Thursday, 19 August 2010© On August 19th the last "combat" brigade left Iraq. This took place more than seven years after the original U.S. imperialist invasion of the country by the Bush regime. U.S. propagandists are trumpeting this withdrawal and many Americans believe the war there is all but over. But the reality is that the U.S. occupation and war of terror against the people of Iraq continues. According to the official U.S. Department of Defense website, the departure of the last “combat” brigade “leaves 56,000 U.S. service members in Iraq.” Those numbers do not count the thousands of employees of the largest U.S. embassy in the world or the tens of thousands of U.S. contractors still there. They also do not count the tens of thousands of troops in the U.S. directed puppet army being trained and advised by the U.S. imperialists.



Clear-cut Logging Road In Jacoby Creek Blockaded

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.08.2010 00:09

Early in the morning on Agust 17th, forest defenders set up a 60 ft high road blockade to stop the active clear-cutting operations of Green Diamond Resource Company in the redwoods near Jacoby Creek Road north of Eureka in Humboldt County. These clear-cut logging plans represent a fraction of the ongoing clear-cut logging operations in Northern California. "We are not coming down voluntarily until the reckless logging in the Jacoby Creek watershed is stopped," said "Fly", one of the activists from atop the 60 ft high hanging platform

Dispatching Justice: Prince George's County Taxicab Drivers' Fight for Justice

DC, 19.08.2010 23:14

Last week, Prince George's County taxicab drivers won another major victory in their fight to have the county issue 400 medallions directly to individual taxicab drivers instead of issuing the medallions to the few companies which dominate the Prince George's County taxicab industry. In a 2005 article on the Prince George's County taxicab industry, the Washington Post highlighted one company: "At the center of the debate is Silver Cab Co., the dominant player in the market. Silver's owner, Bob Nabley, holds 150 of the county's medallions, company attorney John Lally said. Nabley's influence extends beyond his own taxis. Many of the county's independent drivers and small companies link to Nabley's global positioning system dispatch network for $7 a day, Lally said. "They don't use the word 'monopoly,' but the bottom line is it is a monopoly," said Ronald Smith, chairman of the county's taxi board, a government advisory panel."

Chicago-area Hilton workers take strike vote

Chicago, 19.08.2010 15:09

From the newswire: "In recent years, Hilton workers in Chicago and across North America have endured staff cuts, reduced hours, and excessive injury rates. Now Hilton, run by one of the largest private equity firms on Wall Street—-the Blackstone Group, wants to take more away, add to the already burdensome housekeeping workload, and lock workers into recession contracts even as the economy rebounds.

"On Aug. 18-19, workers at four hotel properties managed by Hilton are taking a stand to stop the company from taking unfair advantage of the recession. Among those voting to authorize a possible strike are workers from some of Chicago’s most notable hotels -— the Drake, Palmer House, Chicago Hilton, and Hilton O’Hare." Read more

This follows on the cusp of a vote in July by Chicago-area Hyatt employees to strike, which resulted in civil disobedience actions and arrests. Both Chicago hotel strike votes could and would join the longest hotel strike in American history, the Congress Hotel Strike at Chicago's Congress Hotel, which has been underway for seven years and counting.

A Permanent Housing Collapse?

Boston, 18.08.2010 18:09

The recent chaos that erupted when 30,000 people waited hours in the Atlanta, Georgia heat to receive applications for subsidized housing is a mere symptom of a worsening national problem. The housing market appears to be on a never-ending downward spiral, with the much-discussed "recovery" always around the next corner.

Breaking: FBI Raids Utah Activist House for the Second Time

Portland, 17.08.2010 23:09

The FBI raids Utah activist house in an A.L.F. investigation for the second time in five months.
The FBI raids my home for the second time in five months.
Today I awoke at 9am to FBI & ATF agents raiding my home in Salt Lake City. This is the second time my home has been raided in an A.L.F. investigation in five months.

Ten agents with the FBI and ATF corralled myself and my roommates into the living room, handed us a search warrant, and spent the next five hours removing belongings from our home.

The warrant indicated they were seeking evidence in recent Animal Liberation Front arsons, including two in Utah.



Federal Judge rules to cut Oregon old growth to save the Spotted Owl!

Portland, 17.08.2010 23:09

Former US Senator Gordon Smith's brother rules to cut old growth forests near Bend to save the Spotted owl. It's back to square one people.

A federal appeals court (9th District) Friday cleared the way for logging to resume in an old growth forest reserve at a national forest in Oregon to protect northern spotted owl habitat from being lost to wildfire.

In a 2-to-1 decision by a three-judge panel, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling that had stopped the Five Buttes project on the Deschutes National Forest near Bend, Oregon.


Judge Milan D Smith (The infamous former US Senator Gordon Smith's brother) says we must cut the forests to save them from insects and fires and other bad things and save the spotted owl habitat. Don't you just hate it when the elite try to play with our minds and souls! I don't know about you, but I am pissed!

This is federal old growth owned by the people of the US, not corporations. This is an ongoing attempt to dismantle the Northwest Forest Plan one forest ecosystem at a time.

Maybe it is time to pull away from the United States Corporation of America. Organize ourselves around our ecosystem called Cascadia.

This was a court battle that was being fought for saving the forests by Cascadia Wildlands Project, The League of Wilderness Defenders-Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project, et al.

Disability Rights Advocates Continue Encampment to Protest De-funding Center for Disability Rights

Rochester, 17.08.2010 16:37


Disability Rights Activists, CDR (Center for Disability Rights) staff and consumers, and community supporters continued their encampment in front of the Monroe County Leg Building on Main Street in Downtown Rochester on Friday. This enters the 5th day of the round-the-clock encampment.

Last Thursday, July 22nd, CDR (Center for Disability Rights) was hand delivered a letter from a Monroe County Attorney declaring that CDR’s contract for the "Consumer Directed Personal Assisted Services Program" with the county would be terminated, with no explanation. While the letter CDR received included no explantion, the County did provide explanation to the media- citing alleged lapses in services that CDR is responsible for. Letters were also sent out to the 303 people who receive services from this Program though CDR informing them they had 14 days to switch to one of 5 other agencies.

Letter to County Executive Maggie Brooks written by one of the participants in the encampment.

Center for Disabilities Rights,Inc. Wins 2 Week Stay for CDPAS Program

Rochester, 17.08.2010 16:37

On August 2, 2010, Judge Richard Dollinger of the NYS Supreme Court awarded Center for Disability Rights, their consumers and their attendants a 2 week stay for the CDPAS program. The stay is in effect until August 13, 2010, preventing Monroe County from moving forward with its plan to close CDR’s CDPAS and transition every one of CDR’s consumers to other agencies. The Judge's decision also ordered Monroe County to send letters to consumers in English and Spanish. The original letters that Monroe County sent out to the CDPAS consumers were only in English, causing confusion for consumers who only read in Spanish. “We were confident going in to court this morning that we had enough evidence that Monroe County’s decision to end this contract is both arbitrary and capricious,” said Bruce Darling, President/CEO of CDR. “In layman’s terms, what they’ve done is potentially illegal.” The Center for Disability Rights, Inc. stated they will continue to fight Maggie Brooks' decision. The Center filed briefs in NYS Supreme Court for permanent reinstatement of funding of the CAPAS by Monroe County. video: After a Week Encampment, Center for Disability Rights, Inc.

LA, 15.08.2010 17:09

A developer is building a housing complex in Huntington Beach and is removing the remains of some 80 Indigenous people.

Bolsa Chica is a significant Southern California Native American Site which dates back about 9,000 years and was once a thriving ceremonial site of the Tongva and Acjachemen Nations. The site is referred to archaeologically as the Cogged Stone site (CA-ORA-83) which once covered over 120 acres of the Bolsa Chica mesa.

Cogged stones are unique to Bolsa Chica. The only other place in the world they have been found is Chile.

PFI Turns Into Ongoing PR Disaster for Barclays

United Kingdom, 14.08.2010 23:39

Having spent £25m on the branding rights to London's new cycle hire scheme, the bright sparks in the Barclays marketing department have started a dialogue with the public and which could last for several years. The scheme is part of a private finance initiative providing thousands of rental bikes in return for painting London's roadways in the bank's corporate colours.

Only minutes after the bank unveiled the bikes-for-rent in partnership with the city's Conservative administration, situationist guerrilla teams struck in the night to add their own mobile advertising messages under the Barclays logo. One of the messages, "Funding depleted uranium birth defects in Iraq", was particularly timely. New studies suggest that the ongoing genetic damage caused by the U.S. attack on the Iraqi city of Fallujah in 2004 may be worse than that caused by the atom bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki 65 years ago.

Barclays was also targeted in Cambridge on Friday 30th July 2010.
