Local 10/10/10 Global Work Party

LA, 16.10.2010 05:39

For the second consecutive year, the Northeast L.A. Radical Neighbors (NELA-Rad) and Converging Storms participated in the annual world-wide 350 demonstration. (Other groups were represented this year as well, including the Montrose Peace Vigil.) However, unlike last year, we organized two events: one on October 2, which coincided with Eagle Rock's annual Music Festival and thus benefited from heavy foot traffic. The second event happened on October 10 in conjunction with the other 350 activities around the world

DC Friends of U.S. Hikers Appeal to Ahmadinejad, Criticize Obama Admin for Negligence

DC, 15.10.2010 19:10

“There is no shortage of evidence of Bauer’s on-the-ground, anti-war reporting - most of it can be found on the Internet. The question now is whether the Iranian elite is holding out on Josh and Shane’s release until they’ve heard official admissions by the Obama administration that the U.S. government did not send the three to Iran to mount a destabilization campaign; that our friends are, in fact and deed, opposed to U.S.-Israeli attack, interference and aggression against Iran.”



La Casa Shelter To Close

DC, 15.10.2010 19:10

The run-down trailers at 1436 Girard St, NW, which make up the La Casa shelter, go unnoticed by most passersby. Located in Columbia Heights, a gentrifying - largely gentrified - neighborhood, the trailers seem out of place. Overshadowing them, literally, are luxury apartments owned by Donatelli and Klein, the new owners of the land upon which the La Casa shelter sits. In order to clear the way for yet another high-end development, the men who stay at La Casa will be housed elsewhere by October 15th, according to District officials. thefightback.org



Can Vaccine Makers be Sued?

DC, 15.10.2010 17:10

On October 12th, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Bruesewitz v. Wyeth. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act protects vaccine manufacturers from liability for certain injuries caused by their vaccines (giving injured patients compensation from the government instead). The court examined whether that immunity applies when the victim claims that the design of the drug created an avoidable and unnecessary risk to patients.



Ninth Circuit Decision Limits Freedom of the Press

San Francisco Bay Area, 15.10.2010 07:09

A credentialed reporter, who was prominently displaying a press pass issued by the very police agency who arrested him, can be lawfully arrested for jaywalking simply for standing in a parking indentation/turnout while filming an incident on a street blocked off to traffic, according to a decision issued on October 12th by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Indybay journalist Mark Burdett's attorney Ben Rosenfeld says the ruling "confirms many people's disgust that courts today exist to launder the bad behavior of the rich, the powerful, and the police."

No Groove, Just One Nation Under a Grip

DC, 14.10.2010 21:10

A rally for jobs, justice and education that occurs only two years after the election of a president and party who apparently cannot deliver either and which blames not the party in power for those two years but only the fringe elements of the out-of-power right wing, is a rally that even with a George Clinton performance is One Nation under no groove only a grip. And this grip of the Democrats is no soft hold. It is a death grip. http://www.voxunion.com/?p=3089

Empty Hotel Takeover on World Homeless Day

San Francisco Bay Area, 14.10.2010 03:09

On Sunday, October 10th, a group known as Creative Housing Liberation occupied Hotel Leslie in downtown San Francisco. This occupation was planned as part of a rally and march for World Homeless Day. Over 120 people convened for this event, which began around noon at Civic Center with speakers, musicians and spoken word. Eventually, the group marched up Larkin Street to the hotel, gathering outside for more performances and speakers, food and music, tours of the abandoned building, and the eventual occupation of the building by a core group of people.



Teach-in on Korean FTA discusses dangers

Portland, 13.10.2010 21:39

The investor protection clause in the Korean-US Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) - now pending in Congress - could be the biggest boon for big business since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and could clear the way for similar agreements with Colombia and Panama. On June 26, President Barack Obama said he would take steps toward ratifying the Korean agreement, which the Bush administration negotiated in 2007. The agreement is set to increase exports and jobs in certain sectors of the US economy. At the same time, however, imports will also increase and the US trade deficit with Korea will grow.

Arthur Stamoulis from the Oregon Fair Trade Campaign, hosting a panel discussion on KORUS on Oct. 7, cited estimates that the FTA could double the trade deficit and eliminate over 800,000 US jobs... Investor protection allows multinational corporations to challenge the sovereignty of states. Enacting laws to promote the livability of the planet could be beholden to profit margins....But Barbara Dudley pointed out that investor protection could go beyond environmental degradation. The General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) has expanded to include services, including financial services. The current financial collapse is the result of deregulation of the US financial market. Now, there have been calls for oversight. FTAs, though, could give signatories excuses not to regulate, possibly leading to further financial meltdowns.

KORUS, like all other FTAs, is a horrible, potentially disastrous idea. But there has been resistance to its ratification. The Korean teachers' union has led a 10-day strike that prompted the entire cabinet, which advises the president, to offer their resignations.

Occupy, Resist, Produce

Portland, 13.10.2010 19:09

By Mike Aldax
October 11, 2010

"Protesters squatting in a vacant Tenderloin residential hotel may have set up blockades to thwart invading cops, police said.

More than a dozen police officers stormed the building at 587 Eddy St. Monday in an attempt to flush out an unknown number of homeless advocates who broke into the building Sunday and have refused to leave.

But as of noon, cops said they struggled to make contact with the protesters. Officers dealt with a number of obstacles and blockades that may have been intentionally placed inside the building, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said. The activists occupied the building, formerly the Leslie Hotel, as part of the first World Homeless Day. A rally for World Homeless Day was held in Civic Center Sunday.

Miguel Carrera, a spokesman for the activist group, Creative Housing Liberation, said there were 18 people inside the building, and that they would remain there until police remove them.

Officers planned to go room-to-room in all six floors of the building. They hoped to boot out trespassers and also scan for any damage the activists may have caused, Andraychak said. Police shut down streets surrounding the building due to the operation. Muni had to reroute the 31-Balboa bus line due to the street closure. (And the 19 Polk). Cops have been on scene since Sunday around 5 p.m., after a citizen called 911 to report that around 50 people were blocking traffic in front of the vacant building.

The activists say it is a crime that there are more vacant housing units in San Francisco than homeless people. They claimed in a press release that there were between 6,000 and 15,000 homeless people in The City last year, and that more than 36,000 units are currently vacant.



The Significance of the October 2nd Demonstration in Washington, D.C.

Portland, 13.10.2010 19:09

It would be easy to miss the meaning of the October 2nd One Nation demonstration in Washington, D.C., given that all the media — and many on the left — focused their attention almost exclusively on the calls by top organizers of the action to vote for the Democrats in the coming election. This was, no doubt, part of the picture. But it was not the most important part.
The Significance of the October 2nd Demonstration in Washington, D.C.

It would be easy to miss the meaning of the October 2nd One Nation demonstration in Washington, D.C., given that all the media — and many on the left — focused their attention almost exclusively on the calls by top organizers of the action to vote for the Democrats in the coming election. This was, no doubt, part of the picture. But it was not the most important part.

In fact, the nearly 200,000 people who attended the event, almost all from unions, brought a different message. They were not there to support politicians; they were there to demand that the politicians support them. And they were insisting on demands that run directly counter to the Democratic Party platform.

Video: Portland Rally to Defend Public Education

Portland, 12.10.2010 04:43

Portland Oregon Student Rally held at Portland State University on October 7, 2010, as part of a national day of action to defend education.

The first speaker sets the theme for the event by calling attention to the reasons for this nationwide action: "education continues to be attacked by budget cuts, privatization, faculty and teacher lay offs, rising tuition, etc."
She then goes a little into the history of the student rebellion against this crisis, the successful March 4th 2010 Student Strike and the subsequent organizing.

The second speaker begins by "wanting to know where my money is?" She answers that much of our money is going to the bloated military budget and elaborates just what that amount of money could do for the people of this country.

The third speaker, a lawyer, talks at length about what people can do to save education.

Video is about 14 minutes in length.[Video:] Portland Rally to Defend Public Education

Police Brutality Roundup: &quot;False Reporting&quot; Law Overturned, Taser Policy Changes

United States, 11.10.2010 05:37

from Communities United Against Police Brutality--We are ecstatic to report that the so-called False Reporting law passed by the Minnesota Legislature four years ago has been overturned by the state appeals court.  You'll recall that CUAPB took the state of Minnesota to federal court to overturn this awful law, which criminalizes reporting of police brutality if the person can't prove it happened (and sometimes even if they can).  We lost at the very conservative 8th circuit federal court and have been in the process of mounting an appeal when this ruling came down from the state appeals court in another lawsuit.  See the decision (PDF) here.  The decision incorporates many of the First Amendment arguments we advanced, so we are quite happy to see the law go down for those reasons.  All-in-all, a wonderful decision for the community. 

In a nutshell, the decision says "Minn. Stat. § 609.505, subd. 2 (2006), which criminalizes knowingly making false statements that allege police misconduct, but not knowingly making false statements to absolve police, violates the First Amendment's prohibition against viewpoint discrimination."

Ken O'Keefe And The Night of Terror
PSU, Portland, Oregon

I went to a lecture by Ken O'Keefe, at PSU on Friday night, October 8th and was stunned to find a person struggling with many of the same concepts of non-violent action as I have for over forty years. I was tired and going to things is getting harder, but I wanted to make sure he was greeted with the respect and support for the work he does for all of us. He is one of my heroes!

There were over a hundred people in attendance and there was standing room only as I arrived a few minutes late, (taking Public Transportation is getting less and less reliable.) I was happy to see many people I knew and Joe-Anybody was there with his video equipment so you will be able to see the lecture in its entirety; it was great!

The presentation gave us some feeling for what it was like during the assault on the flotilla that tried to bring aide to people who are dying from minor illnesses because of our blockade of Gaza. Yes, I know that I said "Our" because I mean that we, the United States, allow this madness to continue; day after day.

Ken O'Keefe, from my perspective, was telling us we have the responsibility; not our politicians or leaders, it is us!
