Are we living in a Post-Legal America?

Portland, 04.06.2011 19:51

It appears the law no longer applies to those who deem themselves above it ... Tom Engelhart makes a good case that we are currently living in a country where questions of legality are no longer relevant to the power elite in his article "Dumb Question of the Twenty-first Century: Is It Legal?"

I recently came across the best explanation I've seen about how law gets corrupted: "Politics is the art of telling people what they want to hear and then doing what's expedient, according to the dictates of power and money. Eventually, the law no longer operates according to its tenets and the only place it applies is to the living conditions of those too poor to afford lawyers, at the whim of those who can." -- Source: Les Visible

We all know we have a two-tiered system of law here in the United States: one for people with money and one for people that don't. But now there seems to be a third category: the "Shadow Government" that's really running the show. The law, it seems, doesn't apply to them at all. But they've forgotten something. Something we the people better not forget because it protects us all:

Pro MERS amendment stopped in Oregon!

Rogue Valley, 03.06.2011 01:41

"Celebration is in order"

Success! Starting on Friday May 27 through today, thanks to you and hundreds of of our members across the State calling and writing their representatives, the pro MERS amendment did not pass. "YEA!" The amendment, attached to an actually good piece of legislation that would help oregonians (SB 519), would have essentially removed the long standing State requirements to record title transfers in county records and let the banking industry move forward with questionable MERS foreclosures.

Bill Negatively Affecting Struggle Against LNG Passes Oregon Legislature

Portland, 02.06.2011 02:42

Tuesday morning, the Oregon state Senate passed HB 2700, the bill that allows a company to apply for and receive removal/fill permits on private property without landowner knowledge or consent. This is a bad bill. The passage of this bill infringes on private property rights by allowing companies building LNG-related pipelines to begin the state permitting process without landowners having a say about proposed activities on their property. For three years, we have called this the "LNG fast-track bill." The bill already passed the House, so it now sits on Governor Kitzhaber's desk awaiting his signature.

If you are a landowner along the pipeline route and you receive notice from LNG companies or the Department of State Lands that they issued a permit for your property, please let us know immediately.

The Good News: We can still stop LNG projects in southern Oregon! Yes votes on this bill do not represent a yes vote on LNG. Many legislators believe that this bill is needed for municipalities and incorrectly believe that it does not impact LNG, that LNG is no longer a threat to Oregon or that the LNG proposals are already dead. While it is unfortunate that some of the legislators are misinformed, that does not mean they support the LNG projects....stay tuned for upcoming opportunities to weigh in on the federal level with respect to LNG pipeline impacts to public lands and rivers in southern Oregon.

Reflections from an American Anarchist in Athens

Portland, 02.06.2011 01:28

I've traveled to Athens, Greece ahead of Mayday and a General Strike. Here are some observations for folks back home for insight and inspiration....From http://www.insurgentphoto.blogspot.com.

Exarchia is known throughout Athens as the center of social struggles. This densely packed neighborhood has a reputation as being anti-establishment and is home to students, anarchists, artists, and leftists of all stripes. A month of nationwide rioting was sparked in December 2008 when a 15 year-old local high school student and anarchist was shot and killed by police near Exarchia Square. Most Athenians hate the police, and when this young boy was murdered the whole country exploded. On the corner where Alexis was shot, his mother has mounted a memorial plaque which has his photo as well as the following words (translated from greek):

"Here on the 6th of December 2008, without any reason, a child's smile was extinguished from the innocent fifteen-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulous by the bullets of unapologetic killers."

Animal Rights Fugitive Moves to Third on Most Wanted Terrorists List

Portland, 02.06.2011 00:46

With the (alleged) death of Bin Laden, the FBI has reordered its "Most Wanted Terrorists" list, moving animal liberation fugitive Andres San Diego to number three. San Diego was indicted in 2004 for the bombings of two targets related to the campaign against Huntington Life Sciences: Chiron (Emeryville, CA) and Shaklee (Pleasonton, CA). He was last seen in 2003, after he evaded an FBI surveillance tail in downtown San Francisco.

Andreas San Diego first became a suspect immediately after the Shaklee bombing, when he was pulled over for a minor traffic violation less than a mile from the site of the explosion. He has been a fugitive for nearly eight years. Adding San Diego to the "most wanted terrorists" list is among the more bold moves by the federal government as it works to sell the public on animal rights activists and the A.L.F. as "terrorists". This despite a 30+ year history of activity in which no humans have been harmed. The bombing Andreas are accused of took place at unoccupied office buildings, and no one was injured.

The FBI's wanted poster has this to say about Andreas San Diego:

Action Against Santa Cruz Mayor Ryan Coonerty for Opposing Immigrant Rights Resolution

Santa Cruz, CA, 01.06.2011 22:06

On May 10th, the Santa Cruz City Council defeated a resolution supporting AB 1081, The Trust Act. The resolution would have supported opting out of the "Secure Communities" (S-Comm) program in Santa Cruz County. S-Comm is a federal program that requires local law enforcement agencies to share the fingerprints of all people arrested to immigration enforcement and target those suspected of immigration violations for detention and deportation. This mandated sharing occurs regardless of the type of crime and even if the charges are dropped.

United Kingdom, 31.05.2011 08:33

UK Uncut issued a call out for an Emergency Operation in banks across the country on Saturday 28 May: "Whilst the NHS is being dismantled, the banks that caused this crisis in the first place have been left untouched. Reckless gambling, obscene bonuses and a global financial crisis are symptoms of a disease that requires a drastic intervention. The banks are due a check-up. Join UK Uncut’s Emergency Operation and transform your local high street bank into a hospital. Tell the government to leave our NHS alone; it’s the banks that are sick."

Dozens of banks were hit, many transformed into makeshift wards and operating theatres filled with bleeding patients, surgeons, doctors and nurses.

Video: Winiona La Duke, Speaking In Portland About Alberta Tar Sands

Portland, 30.05.2011 20:55

Winona La Duke, noted Native American activist and author, speaking recently at the Native American Center at Portland State University. Winona spoke for about ? an hour about the Alberta Tar Sands and also about the large oil extraction equipment being shipped from South Korea through Portland and along narrow highways though Idaho and Montana.
Winona La Duke, Speaking About Tar Sands and the Heavy Haul
After a few brief introductory comments, Winona says that "we are these people at this moment in time; we are the one's who are here...........and as you look around you've got the shot to do something great. You've got the shot to keep them from blowing off the top of a mountain, you got the shot to keep them from combusting the planet to oblivion; you've got the shot to keep them from opening another uranium mine, or gold mine for some jewelry that you don't need; shot to take down a dam in a river; and you've got the shot to stop the Tar Sands. And I feel that it's a great spiritual moment where you have the ability to do something great spiritually." Winona says that we must keep up the battle, because the other side has a 50 year plan. "Exxon has a 50 year plan for their Tar Sands and for all of us.....you have to be prepared for a long haul, because these things don't get fixed in 48 minutes when you watch tv. A little character development, a little solution and we're done." "We need to step outside our arena of comfort and do something." La Duke speaks at length about the Alberta Tar Sands, and the plans to transport enormous equipment from South Korea through Portland and along small roads and fragile ecosystems in Idaho and Montana. This has been dubbed the Heavy Haul, and there are numerous groups resisting this invasion:

June 11 Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason and Eric McDavid, Update

Portland, 30.05.2011 20:13

The Day for Solidarity with Long-term Anarchist Prisoners is now two weeks away. June 11th is an open invitation to demonstrate support for Marie Mason and Eric McDavid, who are each serving 20 years. This date provides an opportunity to build links of affinity and solidarity towards the destruction of the prisons and prison-society.

This occasion for solidarity—as an open invitation—can to be responded to however people want, according to their own ideas and contexts. But many people have written asking for suggestions so we wanted to share a quick list of ideas for people who wish to plan events: *Organize an info-night.... * Throw a [vegan] benefit party/show/pancake breakfast/barbeque/picnic

Though Marie and Eric's cases cannot be simplified to a lack of support, we understand that the state succeeded in imposing such long sentences on Marie and Eric in part because it was able to isolate them, both politically and socially. In the wake of these long-term sentences, support for Eric & Marie—and for other Green Scare and anarchist prisoners—has relied on the consistency and commitment of their respective families and support crews. As anarchists, we think there are many ways to improve their visibility that don't rely on the mass media, but rather on organizing and face-to-face interactions in the street. Thus, in particular we encourage people to:
*Organize microphone demos and other very public events.
*Put-up posters, and drop banners (only with permission, of course!). Full-color posters were just printed that can be sent your way.
*Operas, plays, ballet, like Redbird Prisoner Support in Colombus, OH!
*Other, wholly-new and original plans that we'd be excited to promote and spread for June 11, 2012, and until every prisoner is free,

Get organized, and get in touch with us if you need to!  june11thsolidarity@gmail.com
