Dick Belsey worked on cleaning up Hanford -- the largest nuclear waste dump in the Western Hemisphere -- for many years.

Things were different before the invasion! Liberation? Hardly! Terrorize? Absolutely! What possible chance is there to bring about peace in Iraq with storm trooper tactics against school children and teachers? The fact that some of these children have chosen Saddam over the soldiers of the US occupational forces must tell you something! It certainly should!
On the 11th September, 2001, three steel framed skyscrapers, World Trade Center One, World Trade Center Two and World Trade Center Seven, collapsed entirely.

Why would a radical anarchist care about Christmas? Isn't it just a commercialized glut of shopping days and gift wrap made of broken trees, a celebration of consumption with a little dose of state-sponsored Judeo-Christian oppression thrown in for good measure?
Well...no. I love Christmas. I'm not the least bit sheepish about it, either. I'll tell you why.

The wildly popular expression used by desperate activists is getting tired and weak.

I don't imagine that it was the intention of the director or the producers of the Lord of the Rings films to paint a racist stereotypical tapestry over what could be described as a basic set of principles of humanity's behavior in the natural environment and with each other.

what is truly effective? we need to make plans, and soon. With the caveat of nonviolence (violence=physical or psychological harm to innocent folks), which tactics have been PROVEN effective in struggles against status quo power structures which are abusing their privilege?
The sooner we can start to agree on a general plan of action to restore our sovereignty as a people, restore our self-determination, and restore a truly civil society, the sooner it will happen.
Bush Administration persecution of another independent Muslim state.
Cramming the system.
Portland, collect your bills. Stop extending credit to bad risks. Stop wasting our tax dollars.
Largely I've been a "middle roader" on all this politics, not being too radical, nor arch
conservative...just flying the White Flag of neutrality across the battlefield of today's
rancorous partisan politics. However, after reading a really neat book that's been out
for a short while, but only now got around to read, I'm left with a question that begs an
answer. Once I've gotten a "good" answer from a conservative spokesman, I will then
evaluate it all, and arrive at decision as to whether to be a "radical" or a "conservative"
and guide my future accordingly. So, "if" you rightwing nutters want to gain a new ad-
herent, then give this question your best shot....
Well, the war on terror continues.
Will they shut down the nuclear reactors before it's too late?
A newsletter of a socialist party that calls for the "Abolishment of Employment"
Your best bet for actually getting Nafta and WTO cancelled is to get me elected. I would really appreciate your help. I was at Seattle WTO protest among many others. I hope you don't hold it against me that I am working from within the establishment. I think I am the best opportunity to atleast get this issues televised, especially with the support of Indy Media. Thanks!
I am a homeless vendor for Street Roots, a bi-weekly Portland based newspaper addressing the issues of homelessness, racism and the plight of the poor and displaced. The Wild Oats on N.E.

The human species is the most diseased, perverse, and pathetic to have ever infested planet earth. This article reveals the top 20 reasons why this species has forfeited it's right to continue to exist.
MoveOn.org voter fund has finished collecting over a thousand advertisments and needs YOU to vote on which one will have the greatest effect on viewers. Below are the four that I think are best so far.
On another front, the same struggles are taking place. Birth has now truly become a surgical procedure, brought to you by the elite power brokers(insurance companies, physicians, some midwives, corporate media), who seek to control and make lots of money on human reproduction, the ultimate prize. By creating the old risk-fear-money cycle, the birth machine eats us and our children.
If you want to cancel Nafta and WTO, beyond complaining about Police Brutality, there are more succesful methods. Even if you are a anarchist, socialist, nihilist, we can work together. You can always bang your head against the wall, but let's all support those that are working hard on our behalf.
Solidarity doesn't hate.

A candid look at events about to un fold,as predicted by America's foremost prognosticater and dire warnings for those in power.
There is a movement here in Portland and in other cities/communities around the world. This movement does not fit nicely into any single category or definition, it is organic and ever-changing as the people that help with it change and grow themselves. This is a central point of the world we are trying to create, to make it for the people, not for the profit.
The Empire is integrated into most people through mind numbing barrages of television commercials, news shows, newspaper articles and advertisements, whatever permeates the everyday life of the peple, the Empire will take over and push its message unknowingly to these people. And we, the communities that work against this Empire need to combat thhat through a variety of actions and means to create the mutual end: freedom.
It is a daunting task to move into a position to fight this empire. Whatever front you choose as your own it is already saturated and overpowered by various factions of this empire to make it mear impossible to affect change on your own. We need to create broad-based coalitions of individuals and collectives, that are patterned by the way that we want to live (whatever that may be) and work together for that mutual end.
By creating coalitions of like minded people we give ourselves some advantages. We give ourselves numbers. We give ourselves support. We give oursleves hope. We give ourselves power. We give ourselves a chance to create the world we want and break out this world that we are overshadowed by.
