This fence is only meant to keep Americans IN, especially when the fence
runs along the entire U.S./Mexico border.
And don't forget the fence the Bush administration has planned for the
U.S./Canada border, particularly along Washington/British Columbia, where
it is hoped to keep Osama bin Marijuana from entering the U.S.

Interview with Lewis Lapham, editor of Harper's Magazine, conducted by Between the Lines' Scott Harris
I think we should all take a look at what is so important about indymedia work and why it is so important and what it means to each one of us. I hope that we draw courage of conviction from Brad's example and that we stand together throughout the indymedia network and as individuals to redouble our efforts. I think you all know that it could have been any one of us. But, it is so much easier for them to take us one at a time. We stand much more strongly together in what we can all be proud of. Our brave common struggle. Indymedia.

Over the past few days, most of us have witnessed the fact that the MSM, usually very mute when it comes to questions of Officer Liability, has actually been exposing these thugs to treatment usually reserved for the more helpless among us. Today, the big kahuna actually ADMITTED that it was action from a "blog" that called attention to Officer Humphreys' violent history.
After a lifetime of never owning a car, I recently got a job that is 30 mi. from home and not served by public transit. I brought my car this weekend when I came to visit your lovely city and I just wanted to apologize for driving though it.

Fall-out of nuclear weapons tested the past 6 decades is slowly killing all living beings. But logically that includes the warmongers and their Dr. Strangeloves too? Are we killed by madmen digging their own graves, secretly also 'suiciding' us? What's up? Collective Hara Kiri?
Interview with Iraq War veteran and former US Army Sgt Mark 'Gordie' Lachance, conducted by Between the Lines' Scott Harris
how the jewish lobby dominates us foreign policy
The creators of American reality, those propagators of charades and mirages who dwell inside the hallways of the Ministry of Truth - otherwise known as the Corporate Media - continue their dance of deception and whitewash, festering in their offices of propaganda, directing the narratives and the epics hundreds of millions of Americans consider truth, as always, protecting the hand that feeds them, the Establishment.
never before translated text about e-money, financial speculation, the IMF, crashes, etc
All manner of attempts to discredit this bit of news have arised and why not? This has the potential to be far more damaging to the Bush administration than anything that has occured on his watch yet - yes anything. We are talking about storing nuclear devices in a foreign country, in a war zone. For what?
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said Thursday that anyone demanding deadlines for progress in Iraq should "just back off," because it is too difficult to predict when Iraqis will resume control of their country.
What is it like to be on the run with the CIA looking for you? Well, Eamon McGuire, an Irishman, can tell you something about that, along with what it was like to be member of the IRA's South Armagh Brigade. For over 20 years, McGuire led a double life: one as an aircraft engineer, the other as an IRA operative. His newly-released book, "Enemy of the Empire: Life as an International Undercover IRA Activist," is compelling reading.
In an effort to be relevant it is wise to seek the counsel of those who have come before. De-programming takes time. Be patient.
We are in the middle of this fight. The Metro Policing agency's are pushing back to make a point against the Kaady and Rubio lawsuits, and that point is that "We can kill you if you do not sit when we say sit".
This short essay examines one aspect of community self-determination vis-a-vis financial instability and police-state power. Community controlled and government subsidized neighborhood watches are neccessary in order to secure civil rights for all and accountability and reduction in a top-down militarized police force.
It's time to imagine: what practical steps would anarchists take towards police reform on the way to a utopian paradise?
Well, as pointed out over and over, when the police continue to overstep, the people will cease to work with them, and will, instead, work against them. In Gervais, the cops had to call backup, when the father of a fifteen year old refused to let the cops take him down, and an assault ensued.
Today, Chief Sizer called it "offensive" that people have posted fliers across the city denouncing the officers who beat James Chasse to death on a downtown street. "Offensive." She says that she's "tired of the finger pointing," and that we need to "focus on the bigger picture."
Better have a COW, man!
-- Bart Simpson
Rosie Sizer is lying so shouldn't it be assumed that her officers are lying also.
Seems the chief of police is less than pleased that someone has been putting up posters decrying the killing of citizens by cops. Tough shit, Rosie!
Chief Sizer provides a detailed analysis of the killing of James Chasse. Yet she fails to mention the PPB's own Crisis Intervention Officer Team. Was a CIT officer called in the Chasse incident per PPB policy? No, Humphreys testified he never thought of mental illness.

I'm crushed! I've been roundly chastised for not "following SOP" and citing the Merc as the source of Lt. Wyatt's statement re: the police brutality protest this past Sunday.
What I'd like to know though is this: where did the intrepid Merc reporters learn about the protest in the first place??
The military invasion and occupation of Iraq is examined within the context of US imperialism. The dual nature of US politico-economic system is identified as an imperialism-democracy complex, with international imperialism and domestic capitalist democracy being its essential and interacting components. Some general laws of this imperialism-democracy complex are also proposed and it is shown how imperialism leads to the transformation of democracy into demonocracy, at its higher stages of development, like that of the US. The specific facts of the great conspiracy of the invasion, occupation, plunder, and robbery of the fabulous oil and other resources of Iraq, are placed and examined within that context. The most important need for understanding and analyzing various conflicts and invasions, constantly created by the US imperialism, throughout the world-the Iraqi invasion being the latest manifestation of these-in all their complexity and in the dialectical complexity of imperialism and democracy-is identified and explained. It is self-evident that such colossal and complex problems as US imperialism and its various manifestations need to be understood and analyzed in all their complexity, in as much depth as possible, for the formulation of effective strategies and tactics to counter and resist these. Fragmented, simplistic, and shallow pseudo-practical approaches to such immensely complex and gigantic problems have lead nowhere in the past. These are unlikely to lead anywhere in the present or future either.
Matthew Zapruder would have you believe that the Poetry Bus Tour is the greatest thing since sliced (white) bread, but it's being criticized in poetry circles for a variety of reasons. The bus stops on Portland's latest gentrification project, Mississipi Avenue, Tuesday, October 24th.
It's interesting to see what issues can infiltrate and corrupt the Left. Usually the offenses are blatant— supporting the 'war on terror', electing 'progressive Democrats', calling for military intervention into a troubled region (Yugoslavia— and now Sudan). Sometimes though, more subtle topics can confuse and disorientate the Left, the most recent example being the sudden reemergence of the WWI Armenian genocide as a hot-button issue.
Rarely, do we get a real choice in judicial elections. But we do now, with Mark Kramer running for an open Circuit Court position in Multnomah County (#28). We have a wonderful opportunity to put a strong, smart, progressive lawyer on the bench. Mark is a strong advocate for access to justice issues. See his website: http://markkramerforjudge.com
Patriots--I hope you'll take a look at my latest--which I have yet to post--my effort is an attempt to synopsize not only 9/11, but also, the lead up to the attack and the current horror that we're facing--I'm trying to make it simple and yet brutally clear, for any who can read.
Feel free to pass it on. Peace, Matt
While the Israel-First crowd isn't the only group that has called for attacking Iran, they are the primary ones doing so today. The more pragmatic imperialist camp - though certainly wanting to see Iran internationally isolated & advocating for "regime change" - have pretty much dropped the rhetoric about direct military assault since it as become clear that we really don't have the means to make such an attack serve U.S. interests. Only the Israel-First crowd -spearheaded by Israelis (like Olmert & Netanyahu), but strongly backed by their allies here - are still blatantly threatening military action. This has become especially true since entering election season - a new war is NOT a good sell. http://www.whyattackiran.com/
I found this posting. Apparently-in context-it'd been
posted before and taken down by Potter or his minions, to be reposted as now found.
Maybe they'll take it down again, so it needs reposting
here at PIMC to preserve a record of it.
This is dynamite news as puts lie to the City's efforts
to spin this incident into a cover-up. Hopefully the
Chasse Family's attorneys are checking here for public
input into this case, or their investigator. Maybe we
should contact them to alert them to this posting. I
will endeavor to do so.
Meanwhile, we need to look into these cops backgrounds
for we might be surprised at what else is found that be
useful in court cases, as well as in the growing Court of Public Opinion!

We've got a few things to share with you, but first we just wanted to again express our thanks to all of you who have put time and energy into supporting Jeff whether it's sharing his story with others, writing a letter, donating money, or purchasing the "22/8" documentary DVD about Jeff and sharing it with friends or screening it at your local café to help spread the word about Jeff and the repression that activists face. There are still DVD's available, and although we have sold out of the Heartcheck zines, we are now selling photocopies at a reduced rate. Contact us for details on ordering the DVD or zine.
Thank you! Your support means so much to us and to Jeff.

"Wars should be directed so that the nations engaged on both sides should be further in our debt". & "Candidates for public office should be servile and obedient to our commands, so that they may readily be used".

I normally agree with the League of Women Voters, but on Measure 45, the LWV is not only wrong in its position, it is sending out insultingly unintelligent arguments against the ballot measure requiring term limits for Oregon State Senate and House.
Genocide, that most malevolent of human activities, that most common of historical realities, that most useful of American foreign policy objectives, a demon that invariably never fails to leave our mammalian psychology, becoming as common to our history as music is to our culture, has been birthed in the land of sand and dunes, becoming as common as scorching temperatures, rising like ancient Babylon once did to lay claim to Mesopotamia
