Protest the expansion of OHSU's Oregon Primate Center!
From the open publishing newswire:

WHAT: Demonstration against the expansion of the Oregon Primate Center
WHEN: Saturday March 1st, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
WHERE: Oregon National Primate Research Center; 505 NW 185th St. Beaverton OR

IDA will be having another demonstration at OHSU's Oregon National Primate Research Center to voice opposition to the ongoing expansion of their primate research labs. This latest addition to the Animal Services Building is using eight million tax dollars to add another 900 cages for rhesus monkeys. The lab admits that most of this addition will go towards behavioral research, experiments that are highly criticized by many in the scientific community as being outdated, invalid and have no relevance to human psychology.

Empower Yourself. Empowers Others. indymedia training on Thurs., the 27th
From the open publishing newswire: Not until we have learned as individuals and as a culture to empower ourselves, and to stop letting the fascist powers-that-be forcefeed us our lives and our news, will we have real positive change in the world.

This Thursday, from 7-9, come to a portland indymedia website/features training at the Cascadia Forest Alliance Infoshop at 1540 SE Clinton St!

The portland indymedia is one of the most-trafficked, most posted-to website in the U.S. in large part because it is such a frequently updated website. Where most IMCs have 1-5 center-column features a week (or a month in some cases), the portland site has 1-9 a day. That's because all original posts about local events/issues are turned into features. This policy rewards and encourages people who write original content and post it to the site. People LOVE it when their story becomes a feature! They feel EMPOWERED, and if you're helping to di it, you're EMPOWERING them.

There's a lot of talk about not just protesting, but creating viable alternatives. indymedia is one such alternative project -- a new kind of way of telling the news and distributing the news. A new kind of news, entirely! And it's working! Help with the media rEvolution! Come to the training on Thursday and learn how easy and simple it is to update the site... [ Read More... ]

AUDIO FILE: Bark Field Trip to Pollalie-Cooper Timber Sales
From the open publishing newswire: The February Bark Field Trip was to the Pollalie-Cooper Timber Sale on the northeast side of Mt. Hood. This sale is composed of three separate sales, Clan, Kilt and Tartan, slated to be commercially thinned. Of the three, only Clan has been sold. Bark leads these groundtruthing hikes the second Sunday of every month, departing from the Daily Grind, SE Hawthorne & 40th, at 9:30 am, visiting a different sale every month.

These sales are especially egregious because of the close proximity of another timber sale, the Clear Timber Sale Besides this, Mt. Hood Meadows is moving ahead with plans for a Destination resort in this same area. This resort would locate 450 condominiums and a golf course in the Kilt unit area , which were the subject of this months field trip.

This months hike was led by Ian, and took us through the Kilt sales within the larger Pollalie Cooper Sales. In this audio file, which is about 15 minutes in length, Ian and the 32 people on the hike discuss Forest Service reasons for management of these high elevation lands and possible results from the scheduled commercial. Fire prevention, as usual of late, figures high on the list of reasons to manage the forest, though fire has always been an integral part of forest system ecologies.

PDX AntiWar Rally Feb. 15!
Why is it that there's no big PDX downtown weekend antiwar rally planned for February? Did I miss the email? Unless a miracle happens, Bush is gonna pull the trigger on Iraq this month or next, so now is the necessary time to hit the bricks again. It's ridiculous to waste the momentum of A22, O5, N17 & J18 with absolutely nothing when it's most needed.

No Blood for Oil!
No Fascist War!
Insane Warmongers!
US Corporate Whores!

Let's hook up at Noon Sat. Febr. 15 in the North Park Blocks (NE 9th & Burnside by the elephant) and re-create the feeder march assembly from January. Some fabulous people did a great job last time. How 'bout doing it again?
