Washington, and allied war hogs to continue their war of peace.
Does Seattle Indymedia serve the progessive community -- or the state and their racist, violent thugs? Is the Seattle Indymedia editorial group accountable to the community -- or closed off and insular?
We're cops, we don't have to follow the law.
Pat Tillman's death is going to be investigated. What about Fouad Kaady?
Let me offer a pretty simple formula for the slower Euro-American people among us who express astonishment about the rage in Moslem countries over the recent Danish cartoons
Thursday the Senate voted overwhelmingly to extend the Patriot Act (aka "Little Big Brother"), clearing the way for the House to follow suit this week.
This week, along with KPTV channel 12's "More" morning show , Schumachers is giving away a $27,000 mink coat as a tie in with the Academy Awards. The station and Schumachers have stated that fur is "hot" in Holloywood and you will be seeing alot on the red carpet.
Exposing the lies and deception in the corporate media
During a recent lecture at the University of Oregon, Yuval Rabin, son of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, said "We can't wait 300 to 400 decades waiting for the Palestinian Gandhi to emerge".
But have Palestinians really forsaken nonviolence? Have commentators around the world really forgotten the popular nonviolent uprising they celebrated during the first Intifada? And what of the Israeli occupation of Palestine? Why is occupation not seen as a form of violence?
Who's watchin' your kids, Mister? Yeah, that's what I said.
Before you hit on me, let's get one thing clear
You got some woman stuck at home, chained down by your kids somewhere?
You're traveling coast to coast, you're the jet set activist with the most
But who's watchin' your kids, Mister?

Do you wonder if the Iraqi warmongers will ever be punished for their evildoings? Well, thanks to one of Italy's greatest sons, Dante Alighieri, there is a way to find out. He wrote "The Divine Comedy," the first book of which is about his descent into Hell. It's called, "The Inferno." With a little imagination, Dante was sent forward to the year 2065. He reprised his trip to the Inferno for us and forwarded an account of what he had witnessed.
Harry Browne, the first Libertarian candidate allowed to participate in a nationally televised presidential debate has died.
Radical's radical comments on the widespread way in which so-called mental "health" ideology has integrated itself into the very psyches of those claiming to see the value of dissenting from all manner of corporate hold on people. Question: is psychiatry and formal therapy, corporate? anti-copyright.
Mobs of teens have lately been attacking innocent bicycle riders and pedestrians. But there are some strange aspects to the reporting.
Mike Brown just got caught lying and the media is trying to make him sound vindicated.

Just a brief few lines about tonight's festivities and the police presence downtown.
The Problem is not the Bush Believers- there aren't that many left. The Problem is not with the mainstream democrats that "don't have the time" to get informed. The Problem is with those of US that think MoveOn, PDA, UFPJ and ANSWER have a plan. The Problem is with those of US that Know yet continue waiting for the politicians to do something. If they haven't acted by now, they never will. It just came out that the torture was approved by top officials, yet this is not the top story, hell it's not any story- it seems NPR and the rest of the corporate media got the memo to Orwellize it. Every single blogger that knows about this- you are more qualified to be a US Representative than No Plan Pelosi or whoever your critter is. Think about it- is $160,000 a year and a chance to go down in the history books worth a shot? Think about it - the masses are with us!
oped anti bush
It seems that the Bishop of Oregon reads Portland Indy...
PAUL WELLSTONE: AN AMERICAN ASSASSINATION - JIM FETZER ... When Sen. Paul Wellstone's plane crashed on a drizzly morning on October 25, 2002, just 60 miles north of Prof. James Fetzer in Duluth, Minnesota, it would have been a bit much to expect the professor of philosophy -- already pissed off about the JFK assassination and cover up, and a host of other scams and crimes -- to sit quietly and accept the official story that Wellstone's pilots just forgot to pay attention as they neared the airstrip, letting their plane and the Senator crash dive into the ground. At Princeton, Fetzer's thesis was on the logical structure of explanations of human behavior.
Boycott Seattle Indymedia
The volunteers of Portland Books To Prisoners and Books To Oregon Prisoners would like to first and foremost apologize for the disgusting and apalling behavior of the crowd at saturday night's benefit. It was extremely depressing for all of us to experience the response to the respectful and passionate statement made by Topher. We are all dedicated to removing oppression in our society and we all agree that this was a serious step backward for our community.
I think you folks need to make a public statement about what happened.
Cindy sticks to official 911 line of crap

Extensive timeslines and collection of information concerning each of the 19 alleged hijackers. As a result we find very strong evidence (in the case of Atta even a clear cut proof) of many of the alleged hijackers having a double.
What would it take for more(indigenous) people to feel good about this "indigenous issues" site?
It's the message that zealous, ratings hungry talk radio hosts and local ultra-conservative bloggers are peddling as immigration reform. But what are they really promoting?
When I think of these folks, I think of people who put everything on the line for their beliefs. I see them courageously blockading forest roads in the middle of nowhere from crazed loggers and cops; hanging huge banners from daunting heights off bridges and office buildings; hiking miles into a forest and setting up tree-sits in the darkness, rain and snow; disrupting bear, cougar, whale, wolf and shark hunts, on sea and land and frozen lakes, all the way up and down the Pacific coast and interior; dodging rubber bullets and wading through clouds of tear gas to shut down the WTO in Seattle; splattering eco-villains with creme pies; locking their bodies down to every kind of object in order to stop every kind of destructive activity; typing away at a computer or photocopying fliers in the neon glow of Kinko's while everyone else is asleep; driving through the night to make it to the next basecamp or demo; and I see them laughing and singing around a campfire under lush old-growth forest canopies and star-swept desert skies.
Governments, western and pro-western, along with their medias, are bombarding us again with the same lies they used to start wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Iraqi War has been raging for over three years with hardly a peep out of the Congress and/or the Media. Now, a deal which would permit an Arab-owned company to manage stevedore operations in six U.S. ports has sent both into a feeding frenzy. Why? The U.S. Coast Guard is in charge of security at the ports, not the stevedoring outfit. Whoever is behind this ports brouhaha affair deserves an Oscar nomination for - "best director!"
A political commentary on why gold prices are rising
We need a new kind of wiki with:
(a) individual zones of control
(b) a column on all pages where readers
can post comments and criticism
(c) blog-like features
(d) the ability to rate and filter comments
The federal government has been chomping at the bit to put Rod Coronado back in prison since the moment he got out, and his indictment in San Diego for an exercise of pure speech is a flimsy pretext to do just that. People may recall that when Coronado was convicted in Tucson, Arizona on December 13, 2005 for trying to disrupt a macabre, officially-planned hunt of an individual mountain lion which essentially had just scowled at someone on a path and run away, Assistant U.S. Attorney Wallace Kleindienst was quoted as saying: Coronado is "a danger to the community... I know he wasn't tried here for being a violent anarchist. This trial wasn't about Rod Coronado being a terrorist, but he is one." This is revealing of the Government's real motive here - to say nothing of its propensity for ascribing guilt by association.
I've had grown men wet this floor with tears, begging for a job. The place is Gadsden, Alabama, but it could be anywhere in the United States. It could be Washington, D.C., at a Safeway supermarket a mile or so from the White House where an elderly man is crying and holding a can of dog food.
With his supporters are slipping away as Iraq goes from horrible to worse, Bush seems to be looking for that White House bunker Nixon built.
Analysis of the present situation, and of the past and current anti-war movements. Debunks the ideas of despairing people claiming "the time for marches and protests has passed(!)" What we need is more work to build a different kind of movement, a class-conscious movement targetting imperialism!
Its the alleged news that I read
There's a marshland along the river where a wide, shallow pond reaches far beyond its edges most of the year to fill the surrounding valley with a fertile halo of cattails, sedges, marsh grasses, and dogwoods. In spite of the cold, it should be alive this time of the year with restless muskrats, beaver, and migrating water birds. So I went there yesterday to see them.
If corporate Amerika holds the reigns of power, why not use them to stop the war as they still depend on our patronage and are painfully aware of it.
It can't be a matter of foreign firms being less expensive . . . it's MORE expensive to run a business or to live in England than it is to live here . . .
A call for spiritual action to reclaim the lost Ideals of the American Revolution.
This fictional piece is about what happens when a freethinker bumps up against fundamentalist religious thinking in a court of law. It is set in the state of Tennessee. The case presented here in a satirical manner, may remind you of another legal battle played out recently in the news. Question: Is the U.S., as it drifts more to the Right, headed down a road, where our First Amendment traditions will soon become relics of the past?
The supposed party of opposition is all worked up and ready to do battle over the silliest of things, while the whole country goes to hell.
whats next? kill phillipino terrorists. whose the real eco terrorist?
A repost, since Ms. Vic is now listening - tell her how you feel about her ratings campaign wrapped up in call for oppresion and wasting taxpayer time and money!
Again, would you sign this?
With less than three weeks to go before the municipal and legislative elections of 2006 the atmosphere in El Salvador is one of both tension and enthusiasm for the arrival of voting day. Since the massive outpouring of both morning and support for FMLN around Schafik's funeral, many Salvadorans believe the polls that put the FMLN slightly ahead of ARENA actually underestimate the support people will give the FMLN on voting day. PCASC/CISPES delegates will be in El Salvador to ensure a fair vote and to denounce any attempt by the right-wing to repress free elections.
Do we want to start the Schumacher protest earlier than 12:30PM?
