Measure is a mean spirited, short-sighted effort, designed primarily to further demonize and scapegoat smokers, and to dispropotionately tax them in order to fund an unworkable and unsustainable plan to fund children's health care.

Shut Down Downtown Tacoma! We want to show the powers that be, that a homeland security detention center will not be tolerated in our communities and in our region. This will be in solidarity with the No Borders camp that will be happening the same week down south. We plan on sending a very visible, clear message by not allowing business as usual to happen on these days.
with all the current news about inept/lying Sheriff
Bernie and an assortment of PoPo's cops being sued

The mercenary firm Blackwater USA is well known for the controversy involving its "shoot first, ask no questions" policy in Iraq. It is also known that Louisiana's Department of Homeland Security contracted with Blackwater to provide public law enforcement services in New Orleans following hurricane Katrina.

a trial concerning the sell of marijuana to an informant.
When five Makah tribal members conducted an unauthorized hunt for a gray whale off the coast of Washington in September, some people jumped to conclusions that just weren't accurate. In no time, misinformation and baseless rumors about the incident were splattered around the world. Some reports even said the hunters used a machine gun to kill the whale. While untrue and later corrected by the media, many people were left with this false impression.

Thanks to their eyes and ears in Portland and beyond, anti-fascists were able to release information about the location of a white supremacist gathering held on Saturday, October 6 in the greater Portland area, leading to the cancellation of its venue. White supremacists associated with the Hammerskin Nation, a neo-Nazi organization, had rented the Sherwood Elks Lodge (22770 SW Elwert Rd., Sherwood, OR) under false pretexts, for use in its twentieth-anniversary celebration, scheduled for October 5 - 7. Around three hours after receiving information about the true nature of the event being held on their premises, the Elks Club pulled the Saturday venue, denying use of their space to fascist organizers. Approximately 70 - 100 hardcore white supremacists were at the venue at the time of cancellation.

Peter Young and Will Potter spoke at the Clinton St Theater on Thursday night. They talked about the struggle for the rights of animals, and the oppression against those of us who care about that struggle. This oppression is being orchestrated by both corporate and government officials (who are, increasingly, almost one and the same).
This morning, while dazedly going about the normal wake up process, which includes making tea (doesn't it?), I was presented with a picture that I must share:
