Leading Oregon Democrats participated in annual Oregon AIPAC dinner on 5/21. The themes endorsed by keynote speakers featured a right-wing pro-Israeli view against negotiation with Palestinians or other Arabs. Strident anti-Iran rhetoric was an end-note. Most of the entanglement of Democratic Party leadership with AIPAC goes under-reported, though it undermines the anti-war movement.

Regarding Ashland's 4th of July Parade which is run by the Chamber of Commerce, here is the bottom line: "The ACLU and the SOJWJ, therefore, respectfully demand that, first, the Chamber alter its fee structure so as not to discriminate based on the content of entrants' message, and second, the Chamber refund the additional payment of $70 paid by SOJwJ for the 2007 Ashland Fourth of July Parade. If the Chamber fails to do both of these things, the ACLU of Oregon and SOJwJ are prepared to file a lawsuit to obtain this relief, plus the recovery of reasonable attorney fees."

The Iraqi Children's campaign efforts to put up a prominent billboard in the Portland Metro area ran into a roadblock last week when Clear Channel refused to allow the billboard. The proposed billboard is on our website and features a frightened Iraqi child with the words, "Every child matters!" www.iraqichildrenscampaign.org
This billboard is tasteful and simply shows a frightened iraqi child and conveys the message that every child matters regardless of their nation of origin. But Clear channel has decided that the people of Portland don't need to be reminded of the pain and suffering of children in their name. They claim that the design is "not right for the market at this time" which is of course utterly absurd.

Two very interesting little currents in the youth rights movement that might be of interest to young oregonians; electoral political candidates in favor of a vote for all those who pay taxes and a bill in the house to put restrictions on Gulag schools. It is very unlikely that either support of a right to vote at 16 or even the relatively toothless HR 5876 will make any real difference, but the mere existence of these things may be a barometer of some form. Is it time yet for young people in Portland and Cascadia to organize themselves, take direct actions and risk arrest for THEIR OWN rights, in addition (or instead of) providing the backbone to the ecological, economic, and human (read: adult) rights movements of our time?
