Stop the Torture of Bradley Manning

DC, 10.01.2011 00:27

"Over the course of my visits to see Bradley in Quantico, it’s become increasingly clear that the severe, inhumane conditions of his detention are wearing on Manning. The extraordinary restrictions of Manning’s basic rights to sleep, exercise, and communicate under the Prevention of Injury order are unnecessary and should be lifted immediately. Please add your name to my letter urging the Quantico Brig Commanding Officer to lift Bradley Manning’s unnecessary POI order. I’ll deliver your signature to the Quantico Brig when I visit Bradley next month. * Special note: No notepads, pens, phones, tape recorders, or other useful documentation devices are allowed into the brig’s visitation rooms. For this reason the key points of my conversations with Manning, his explicit replies to questions regarding confinement, were temporarily stored mentally through repetition. I am fortunate that many of his replies could be summed up in very few words. When visiting hours conclude I create a voice memo with a brain-dump of the meeting that just took place. I’ll try to get the relevant recordings online in the next few days. Aside from that, I encourage any curious parties to file an FOIA request for the government-curated audio tapes created in brig visitation room #2 on December 18 and December 19 2010 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm."

Justice Denied: Activists Imprisoned, SOA Remains Open

NYC, 09.01.2011 22:55

Once again, the justice system's complicity with the abuses taught at the School of the Americas was exposed today at the trial of anti-militarism activists Nancy Smith and Christopher Spicer. Nancy, from New York, changed her plea to no contest and was immediately sentenced to 6 months in prison by Magistrate Judge Stephen Hyles. In the SOA Watch tradition of using the courts to put a spotlight on the SOA/WHINSEC, Nancy affirmed that she "felt a strong moral imperative" to carry out her nonviolent act of civil disobedience "on behalf of those who have suffered so terribly".

SchNEWS 753 - Lean Dean Fighting Machine

United Kingdom, 09.01.2011 12:33

The Forest of Dean is under imminent threat as once again the Government proposes to put it on the market. The Public Bodies Bill, a far-reaching piece of legislation already in the House of Lords will enable the sale of Forestry Commission land.

Over 3,000 people mobilised on Monday (3rd) to express their dissent and vow to protect one of Britain’s most ancient woodlands and largest oak forest. The crowds marched, belted out songs and burned an effigy of Big Ben to illustrate their view of Westminster. A petition with more than 110,000 signatures is in circulation against the coalition’s future plans for the Forestry Commission.

Check the website for HOOF (Hands Off Our Forest) campaign for more information on preventing the forest sell off and updates.

5,000 Acre Public Land Give-Away in SW Oregon

Rogue Valley, 09.01.2011 05:45

Governor Kitzhaber and Secretary of State Kate Brown will decide at a February 8th 2011 State Land Baord Meeting on whether to move forward on auctioning off 4,920 acres of Common School Fund Land in Josephine and Jackson counties. Most of these parcels if sold would likely be bought by local timber industry interests and subsequently clearcut. In 2010 this has been the case for sales and exchanges of CSF lands in western Oregon. It could happen near you.

San Francisco Wins Bid for America's Cup Regatta

San Francisco Bay Area, 08.01.2011 15:22

The 34th America's Cup will be held in San Francisco in 2013 and hundreds of thousands of tourists are expected to come to see the sailing races. Critics fear that the No Sit-Lie Law recently created by the passage of Proposition L will be especially enforced during the event and tenants will be required to move away from new construction areas. Still others are concerned about expenditures including an estimated $4 million for a beefed up police presence.



Video: OHSU Tortues Animals

Portland, 08.01.2011 08:51

Rally and Procession to morn the deaths of countless animals as a result of animal experimentation at Oregon Health Science University (OHSU) in Portland Oregon. Event was sponsored and organized by Portland Animal Defense League, who can be contacted on both Myspace and Facebook

OHSU Tortures Animals
The gathering stood for a time in front of the hospital with numerous signs indicating their opposition to this lucrative animal experimentation before commencing the funeral procession. At this time they proceeded to march along both sides of the street, morning the needless loss of life and demonstrating OHSU's callous disregard for the sanctity of life.

The signs being carried by the demonstrators claim that at OHSU "Pigtail Macaques are beaten," "monies are used to kill bunnies," and that "pregnant mothers are forced to smoke." This last refers to the work of Dr. Elliot Spindel, who introduces high levels of nicotine into pregnant monkeys through transdermal mechanisms, and later dissects the infants, amazingly discovering that nicotine is bad for infant Primates.

In an interview with Tim Hitchins, spokesperson for Portland Animal Defense League, he states that these experiments are scientific fraudulent, morally unjustifiable and a waste of the taxpayers money.
These experiments are fraudulent, according to Hitchins, because humans respond completely different to tests and pharmaceutical drugs than animals do.

"The reason these experiments are defended so strongly by OHSU.........is because of the amount of money they bring to the University. We're talking about tens upon tens of millions of dollars that help fund....other facilities on their campus."

Other procedures cited by Hitchins in this interview include deliberately stressing animals and the deliberate inducing of obesity.

Coffee Strong provides free coffee, internet, concerts, movie screenings and other events to active-duty military personnel and their families, and acts as a meeting place for various organizations and support groups. It provides a place for veterans to socialize and relax in a safe atmosphere that also allows them to feel comfortable in seeking help if necessary.

Access to information and resources available to veterans within the local community; The New Website Coffee Strong for updates and connections to assistance.

Coffee Strong also acts as a hub for veteran activism, providing a place for interested veterans to speak out about the realities of the wars, address veteran issues, and pursue social change. Modeled on similar GI coffeehouses during the Vietnam War, it is a place where all veterans can feel free to share their opinions without fear.

These are difficult times for businesses to survive, especially nonprofits. Coffee Strong needs your help in order to continue to provide much needed resources to our soldiers and veterans.

Rage against the Death of Jawaher Abu Rahma

United Kingdom, 07.01.2011 12:19

“The Israeli government and its army have been for years now using the West Bank and Gaza as their testing ground. The Palestinians are their guinea pigs. The Israeli army uses tear gas that would probably be banned in any other countries in the world. They shoot tear gas, directly at protesters, once again, an illegal act. But a very rewarding one. Israel’s security industry is booming. It’s never been this good. Countries all over the world are buying Israel’s expertise in security, crowd control and weaponry every day. Israeli soldiers are training other countries commandos all over the planet”[1]

From the blog, Bil’in: A Village of Palestine, 02/01/11

On New Year's Eve 2010, whilst much of the world was celebrating, over 1,000 people demonstrated in the Palestinian village of Bil'in against Israel's encroachment on the village's land. Israeli tear gas and rubber bullets rained down on the protesters and Jawaher Abu Rahma, who had joined the march to the apartheid wall and retreated to the sidelines after the first volleys of gas, choked to death as the allegedly non-lethal gas enveloped the village.

A report from Bil'in residents said that Israeli soldiers fired tear gas “from the moment protesters entered their sight.” “It is obvious that, for the army, the mere presence of unarmed demonstrators is reason enough to use chemical weapons against them,”

There is clearly a symbiotic relationship between the Israeli and international security industries. The people of Palestine provide a constant source of test subjects for weapons which are rolled out by states against people worldwide.

The corporations complicit in Israel’s continued repression have a global reach. The resistance can be global too.

There have been calls from residents of Bil'in for renewed boycott actions, and an anonymous call for actions against Combined Systems (CSI) and BAE (owners of Defense Technology)

In Tel Aviv hundreds of activists blocked a main street in anger at Jawaher's death and CSI tear gas canisters were returned to the US ambassador.
