Portland Financial Focus Week of Action Schedule

Portland, 18.09.2010 23:09

Keeping up the pressure on the vital financial targets, this week of action is for all companies linked to HLS financially - from Fortress to their subsidiary companies and more.
More info on HLS:  http://www.shac.net

Who is Fortress?
In 2006 the Fortress Investment Group entered into a "secret" arrangement with Huntingdon Life Sciences, and loaned them $70 million. If Fortress had not loaned them $70m, HLS would have closed in 2006. If they were to withdraw their loan now, it is highly likely HLS would be forced to close. If ever there was a time for action, it is now. If ever there was a vital target it is Fortress.
More info:  http://www.shac.net/action/fortress/index.html

Portland Targets

Recently, Fortress bought out both American General Financial Services (AG) and CW Financial Services, making these companies subsidiaries of Fortress Investment Group.

Every dollar of profit they make is money that belongs to Fortress. It is the money that Fortress used to loan HLS. It is the money that HLS uses to conduct its horrendous business of animal exploitation. It is blood money, pure and simple. We must stop it where it starts.

It starts with companies like AG and CW Financial Services. Their complicity must end.

Portland, 18.09.2010 19:39

This morning, September 17, 2010, Rose City Copwatch and the Fire Frashour Campaign organized a Rally and Picket in front of the Portland Building in downtown Portland on the first day of the negotiations between the City and the Police Union.

Rally and Picket of Contract Negotiations

These negotiations today were being held in an open meeting, but the word is that the Police Association is pushing for future meetings to be held behind closed doors. This is unacceptable, and many in this gathering spoke out sharply against such meetings and for more transparency in the police department.
Rahsaan Muhammad of the Fire Rashour Campaign stated that these negotiations have been held up for some time now, due to just that position of the Portland Police Association.

There have been many questionable killings of Portland citizens at the hands of the police, yet, in some instances, due to something called the mandatory arbitration in their contract, these disciplined officers are reinstated and awarded back pay. Rose City Copwatch and Members of the Fire Frashour Campaign gathered to voice their opinion and put an end to this mandatory arbitration.

Call to Participate in Anarchist Assembly in Seattle, September 21st

Portland, 18.09.2010 19:39

We hope that this assembly will allow anarchists, anti authoritarians, autonomists etc., to come together and talk about the increasingly hostile environment we find ourselves in and what we are doing about it. This is not a space for the planning of events but rather it is an opportunity for projects to be announced, for proposals to be stated, for connections to be made, deepened and expanded. We intend to increase the level of joint activity, coordination, and face-to-face communication among already established anarchist networks.

From Arctic Circle Collective[:]
In light of the recent escalation of violence by the police in the Puget Sound region, we call you to participate in a general assembly on Tuesday 21st.

We hope that this assembly will allow anarchists, anti authoritarians, autonomists etc., to come together and talk about the increasingly hostile environment we find ourselves in and what we are doing about it. This is not a space for the planning of events but rather it is an opportunity for projects to be announced, for proposals to be stated, for connections to be made, deepened and expanded. We intend to increase the level of joint activity, coordination, and face-to-face communication among already established anarchist networks.


Our aim is to encourage the momentum of resistance to the presence of police in our lives. We are uninterested in a discussion of better police training. Arguments for police reform are not welcome at this assembly. If you choose to express good faith in this violent and oppressive system you will be asked to leave. The only requirement for attendance at this assembly is the desire for the total abolition of the dominant social order that commits violence against us--including the police force. To this end, political parties are unwelcome --including so-called "revolutionary" ones.

The assembly will be held at the Vera Project at 5:00pm. For directions and more information please visit (www.theveraproject.org) and arcticcirclecollective.info

Opposing the cuts in Oxford

United Kingdom, 17.09.2010 18:39

Opposition to the planned public sector spending cuts is growing across Oxfordshire and beyond.

In early September there was a sit-in protest in Lloyds Bank in central Oxford. Protesters pointed out that the banks are being funded by the public at the expense of our frontline services including heath care, social services, and housing.

A week later, Oxford Save Our Services held a public meeting to start mapping the cuts in Oxfordshire and to start building resistance to them. Around 50 people - including service users and public sector workers whose jobs could be under threat - all spoke about the cuts that were being made. These ranged from closing the GAP homeless project, stopping schools & parks projects, closing care centres, turning off speed cameras, and much more.

There was a passionate speech from Stuart (pictured) who had been to the Oxfordshire County Council 'Big Debate' meeting calling for solidarity amongst all those seeking to oppose the cuts.

Resistance to the cuts is in fairly early stages, but rapidly gathering momentum. Events coming up in the near future include:
23 September 7pm: Town Hall Oxford Trades Council open community meeting for all groups and unions against the cuts.
27 September: Oxford Save Our Services planning meeting.
3 October: Demonstration at the Tory party conference. Coaches going from Oxford.
20 October (day of the Comprehensive Spending Review): National day of action against the cuts.

On August 11 in Minneapolis, five people put their bodies on the line to fight Arizona’s racist, anti-immigrant law SB1070. Now they need your support.

Please visithttp://bit.ly/miracdonate to make a donation to their legal fees and to ongoing immigrant rights organizing in Minnesota.

Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner Bud Selig and MLB team owners were at a downtown Minneapolis hotel for an annual meeting. The Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAc) teamed up with MoveTheGame.org, Centro Campesino, and Presente.org to organize a protest.
