Homeland Security Sets up Suspicionless Checkpoints Along Roads in Washington State
Homeland security has setup up 3 internal checkpoints on the Olympic Peninsula. These checkpoints are in addition to checkpoints at Washington Ferry docks and highway border crossings. According to the U.S. Border Patrol, it has a jurisdiction of about 100 miles from the border. This puts most of Washington state in an area where border checkpoints are authorized, including Seattle.

URGENT WARNING: Do NOT feed your dog Nutro!
I have two dogs who have been eating Nutro dog food since they were puppies. This is the brand that was recommended by the Oregon Humane Society when I adopted my older dog, and it had always seemed to be good for them. Their fur was shiny, and they were well nourished. Then, we noticed something....

Bradwood Landing: What's Wrong With LNG?
As you likely know, Northern Star Natural Gas is planning to build a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal on the banks of the Columbia river, at Bradwood Landing. They have launched a relentless PR campaign to convince us all that this is a good thing for the region. "Jobs." "Growth." "Clean." These are some of the words they are using right now, on every billboard, on every radio station, on television commercials, and even, apparently, at union picnics ( http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2008/09/379083.shtml). But it's worth looking into their claims a little closer. Indeed, it's worth taking the time to really understand what is at stake.

Sea Lion Tip Line: TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW
Last spring, after six sea lions were found murdered in two traps on the Columbia, and after the subsequent effort by the government to cover up those murders, we posted a sea lion tip line so that people could report what they know. THANK you to the many people who responded. It has been a very interesting experience to read what you know. We have been conducting a *very* independent investigation into the facts of the case, and it is clear that the sea lions did not die of "heat stroke" as the government contended.

Labor Day Picnic Report back: What the fuck is my union doing endorsing BRADWOOD LANDING??
I went to the labor day picnic at Oaks Park. Frankly, the free food and rides are about all I get from my union anymore. My wages have failed to keep up with inflation, I work longer hours than I think anyone should, and my health benefits have eroded, yet again. But I get this one bone, year after year. The union picnic. So I went. And I could not help but notice a few things.

Portland Neo-Nazis “Out-ed” by Anti-Racists, August 29 & 30
Nearly a year has passed since Portland anti-racists successfully shut down the main venue for the "Hammerfest" gathering of the white supremacist Hammerskin Nation, which was held in Sherwood, Oregon. The main hosts of the "Hammerfest" gathering were members of the Portland-based Volksfront International, a group that originated from Oregon and which is by far the most significant neo-Nazi organization in our state. Now Volksfront are on the move once again and we are called to respond.

Volksfront have small chapters nationally and internationally. This Labor Day weekend they are holding their annual organizational gathering, the "Althing," in Missouri. A clear and consistent message must be sent that Portland doesn't tolerate the maneuverings of violent racists, and we will continue to expose these hate-mongers as long as they continue to organize under the banner of white nationalism. We actively oppose them even when they have their events in other states.
