Activists took their case for ending the Iraqi War to the party responsible for authorizing it--the U.S. Congress! On Sept. 26, 2006, 71 protesters were arrested by police on various charges. The organizing groups for the event were the "National Campaign for Nonviolence Resistance" (NCNR) and the "Declaration of Peace." One of the protesters arrested was Max Obuszewski of the NCNR. He demanded to know: "What about the First Amendment?"

Infowarriors and the coming shift into reality.
in reading today's PORTLAND TRIBUNE about Multnomah County District
Attorney's Office refusing to use PPB officer Joseph Hanousek and
Multnomah County Deputy Christopher Green as lawfully creditable
witnesses, it would seemingly render their continued employment
as a total waste of taxpayer dollars and their efforts to work in
law-enforcement to be totally meaningless.
In the 911 hoax, illusion rules. Like a novel by Nabokov or a play by Pirandello, reality and illusion get all mixed up. This is no environment for the intellectually insecure who seek smug academic certitude. The situation argues for the widest tolerance and openness. Here in the twittering, ambiguous, illusory world of 911, any possibility can be entertained.

Search and seizure just like a commando nature of nailing or advocating in behalf of the accused and the commanded puppet who actually serves the point blank at the desk of your attorney. A probable review of questioning legal grounds and rights of the murdered and the murderer. The Lawyer's worksheet on how to kill yourself.
Several months ago, a writer on this site was excoriated for suggesting that we boycott the Sandy Days celebration, in support of the parents of Fouad Kaady, and in protest of an out of control police department, where the chief of police had the temerity to arrest the grieving father of Carlos Rubio, for speaking out about his grief, and demanding an investigation into his son's death.
This bunch of cops just stood there, thumbs in their ass, while the last beats of James Chasses' troubled heart faded.

James Chasse was murdered by the Portland police. He was tazed, kicked in the head, beaten, jumped on, and hog tied. And then he "mysteriously" died in police custody. I saw a picture of him on the "beat goes on" thread on this site. It made me want to know more about him.

Democracy is such a charade that for centuries now, regardless of election or of time and place, the elites of all nations have yet to lose the power and control of their respective states. They have yet to be displaced by the people for an extended period of time. Democracy seems at odds with the historical preference of the masses, generation after generation, for authoritarianism and tyranny.
"...Would someone please tell me how this is supposed to make me a better person? Can someone please tell me how locking away more than two million people into places like this is going to stop crime? Is there anyone out there that can convince me we are this planet's most evolved creatures?"
The war against Indians began shortly after the Puritans invaded our country. Outright murder of Indian people was commonplace and sanctified by the Catholic church via its specious papal-sanctioned "Right of Discovery" and "Manifest Destiny" doctrines, all of which are categorized in what we now know as "The Great White Lie." Our warriors were murdered with impunity, our women violently raped and tortured, our children kidnapped and molested sexually, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually.

how the us pursues its imperial agenda
Reading a story at cnn.com, I see the writer uses the term "cell" to describe the hangout of drug smugglers.
Regardless of what you think of CNN, I think it is very noteworthy that the status quo is methodically catagorizing both vice and political suspects as terrorists.

A condition exists at the Oregon State Penitentiary which is fast becoming untenable for Native American inmates, a condition which serves to breach the Covenant, called "Treaty," between our Nations and the United States government.

A conference was held on 09/18/06 at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), in Baltimore, to celebrate the birthday of the U.S. Constitution. One of the speakers was Professor Jonathan Turley of the GWU's School of Law. He accused George W. Bush of creating an "uber presidency" and violating the "Separation of Powers" doctrine. He also blasted the two-party system as a monopoly. Prof. Turley said: "We need another political party!"

9/11 - Illuminati plan TOTALLY revealed - what was genius - explained worldwide first September 18, 2006 - This very page becomes the first page worldwide to TOTALLY expose 9/11 - Illuminati stage Mass slaughter in Lower Manhattan. http://911-for-dummies.blogspot.com/ So why was the complete puzzle so difficult to solve? Basically the plan worked due to three reasons that reflect the features of End Times Reductionism, the OPPOSITE of genius:
We frequently hear police officers complain how dangerous their jobs are, using guilt as a motivator to extract
After September 11, it became almost impossible to criticize police officers' misbehavior without prefacing comments with genuflections toward officers' relative "heroism." "They risk their lives for us every day," was the common refrain. And of course, in a sense, that's true
Lest we forget, please post here any photos of people here, in the Portland Metro area who have been wantonly murdered by the ones we hired to protect and to serve.
Let's be careful about calling people
terrorists, but the people who are
strapping on bombs and walking into

The other day I was recounting to a friend of mine the article about Lukas Glenn that I had read here on Indymedia. The friend exclaimed "Is there anything we can do about them?"
She was talking about the police.
Brilliant commentary on the last days of the Bush Administration!! Bookmark the site, or read him on www.opednews.com.
There may be probable cause to try George W. Bush for capital crimes. Bush is losing it. He's combative, belligerent, rambling, disconnected and overtly defensive. He's desperately trying to come up with various defenses on various fronts —all ex post facto. One is tempted to tell him: give up, George! Surrender to the authorities! You get one phone call; use it to get in touch in Jim Baker. Get your lies straight!

Swiss security studies (at Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH)) researcher Daniele Ganser talks frankly about the possibilities of "Surprise", LIHOP, and MIHOP theories about 911. He and another prestigious Swiss University Professor, Albert A. Stahel (Military Acadamy, ETH Zurich) have suggested that US government insiders are the true perpetrators of the 911 attacks.

Since the end of WWII, the U.S. policy in the Middle East has created only "more anger-more hatred for our county," said Kevin Zeese. Speaking on 09/13/06, at the Palestine Center, in D.C., Zeese ripped the Bush-Cheney Gang for giving Israel the "green light" to terrorize Lebanon for 33-days. Zeese also took it to task for abandoning the Palestinians and for its hostile attitude towards Iran. "It's time to try diplomacy in the Middle East," he said.

Being older and perhaps having spent more of my life in the "mainstream," many of my acquaintances often ask me why I spend time, here, on IndyMedia. "don't you think that most of the articles are slanted toward the radical left?"
