Ghosts of Ted McGinley - Unplugging the stupidity of TV Turnoff Week
If there's one television rerun more dispiriting than endless iterations of Scooby-Doo, The Brady Bunch, or the genre du jour of plastic surgery shows such as Extreme Makeover and The Swan, it is surely that annual ritual of self-loathing and mortification of the flesh that is TV Turnoff Week, which this year runs from April 19 through April 25. "Turn off TV, Turn on life," plead the nonprofit sponsors of the annual event, as if the two were somehow inextricably linked.

An argument FOR the draft
Last night on Majority Radio on Air America (620 AM in PDX), a guest (Markos Moulitsas of the blog dailykos.com, I believe) mentioned he supported a draft and he explained why. He said a draft was needed because Americans are largely disconnected from the horrors of our police actions and military interventions abroad. He said more people would hesitate to deploy troops if their relatives and friends and themselves were in danger of serving.

Nader and the Reform Party (LA Times)
"Nader Has Qualified Nowhere, Plans to Everywhere"
By Nick Anderson

The Reform Party, which espouses fiscal discipline and clean government, nominated conservative commentator Pat Buchanan in 2000. Now Nader, an anti-corporate crusader well to the left of Buchanan, could become its standard-bearer.

Join IDA for World Week for Animals in Labs
Trine was a capuchin monkey subjected to outdated drug experiments at OHSU. In the Chinese calendar, 2004 is the year of the monkey. In the anti-vivisection calendar, next week is World Week for Animals in Labs (WWAIL). From April 17-25, In Defense of Animals (IDA) and many other groups and individuals will be stirring public interest about the wasted resources and suffering hidden inside locked animal labs.

(See full calendar of events at end of this article)

While planning these events, I've been overwhelmed by memories of some of the monkey friends I made while working for two years at Oregon Health and Science University's Oregon Regional Primate Research Center. These memories remind me of why the mission to expose the fraud of animal research is so important. I take these issues personally.

Please keep these articles running around because the "finding" of the weapons before the Dem. convention or 3 weeks before the elections will actually surprise most of the ignorant dummies who are going to vote for the devil. Let's take some of the surprise out of that and the sudden heroic capture of Osama. Then the only thing left to do will be to pull off another 9/11 and scare the shit out of us and force his way into the second unelected term - then we can impeach the sob.

Below is a blueprint for aggressive resistance when Bush tries to bring back the draft in teh fact of a military defeat in Iraq. It is based on tactics learned in the environmental and animal liberation struggles, plus "getting out" tactics not used in those issues. Of course, we speak here of drafting youth in general, not the end-of-tour soldiers he is already drafting.

10 Years of the Northwest Forest Plan: Cascadia Eco-Resistance
forestfire2

PART II of a Two Part Feature - Click Here to Read Part I

Now, in Southern Oregon, the largest timber sale in history - 40+ square miles of logging - is taking shape, innocuously named the "Biscuit Recovery Project". Earth First! will hold its regional rendezvous there, June 10-14. The deep south Cascades are certain to be a hot spot: nearby, just across the CA border multinational energy giant Calpine (a co-conspirators with ENRON in the California energy crisis) and war profiteers Halliburton are planning to decimate 10,000's of acres of sacred tribal land around Medicine Lake for geothermal energy exploration.

East of the Cascade crest in Oregon massive old growth logging masquerading as forest-fire fuels reduction is being fought by groups like Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project and PROWL. New direct action groups like the Klamath-Salmon Action Network are activating in Northern California. The Cascadia Forest Defenders have a renewed womyn and trans gendered occupation in the forests near Eugene, OR. Citizen surveyors the Cascadia Wildlands Project and the tree-climbing Northwest Ecological Survey Team are all expanding their efforts.

In Portland:

Bark - Mt. Hood's timber sale monitors - is now facing dozens of logging operations, with logging season already begun at the Hipo and East Five-mile sales. Bark is holding a Community Forum on the issues on May 4th. The Cascadia RiSiNG! Eco-Defense Network support office (not to be confused with the Cascadia Rising Infoshop) promotes grassroots eco-resistance across Cascadia and helps folks find a place in the forest defense movement. Both groups need your support! Also, not to be missed: Wednesday and Thursday the Oxygen Collective will be speaking in Portland at PSU and Reed Colleges respectively.

As one Cascadian put it - "Bush is using Cascadia as his playground for a new forest policy, we will use it as our palette of resistance."

BACKGROUND AND NEWS: Cascadia RiSiNG! Eco-Defense Infosite | Native Forest Council | Indymedia Forest Pages: Portland | Rogue | Vancouver | SF Bay |

RELATED GROUPS: Back to the WALL | Bark | Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project | Cascadia Forest Defenders | Cascadia Wildlands Project | EPIC | Klamath-Salmon Action Network | KS Wild | Medicine Lake Infopage | Northwest Ecosystem Survey Team | Oxygen Collective | PROWL |

250 Words or Less - Why Is The U.S. In Iraq?
it can't be for vast stockpiles of 'weapons of mass destruction' -

120,000 troops are certainly not needed to find those (and anyway haven't been able to for one entire year spent there),

especially since UN inspectors couldn't find them in almost a decade of previous searching - Hans Blix now states they never existed.

and also because many members of and advisers to the current administration now openly admit that WMDs "were not the reason", flatly contradicting thousands of reams of their very own public statements and edicts from the very same people 2002 through March 2003, to the exact contrary.
