Limbo is a crappy place to live, even for free...
while a free citizen being not jailed, finding employment asks of me for its application more effort and bureaucracy than I seem to be able to complete, finding the state is more satiated with me as its beneficiary than doing work I'd like to do and that I have the motivation to complete works to the end of destroying this system that I am benefitting from, I'm starting to get irritated.

Operation Chi Lift: Time for a No Kill Nation
Our little pregnant girl, finally getting to heal Every year, roughly 5 million healthy, adoptable, dogs and cats are killed in shelters across the country because they could not find a home. Some people say this has to do with an overpopulation problem among cats and dogs. But it does not. In fact, around 8 million dogs and cats come into shelters every year, and around 5 million of those are killed for lack of decent homes. But at the same time, every year 17 million people go looking to adopt a dog or cat. So this is not a population problem, it's a problem of will. Do we care enough to stop the slaughter? Then we must care enough to stop the trafficking of cats and dogs, and we must care enough to go to the shelters and adopt animals who need homes. It's long past time to end this holocaust.

Northwest Anarchist Conference: Anarchist Practice. April 24th - 25th
A Short Introduction:
The idea and focus behind this conference is to bring different types of anarchist practice to the for-front and begin moving away from specific theoretical engagements. Rather than taking theory and separating it from its everyday practice. This is an attempt at allocating theory the ideas brought up in discussion and talked about and beginning to practice them (IE. Praxis). There will be no specific theory leading the discussions or dialogue throughout the time except for the person. The set up is to have the ability to talk and discuss the ideas in an open manner. So after every discussion there will be a small open dialogue about the ideas.

Many times Portland Indymedia has been the only open website hosting pictures and fliers from the community at large about local issues. Yet it the little over two years Ive been here its very often the media uploaded by contributors is lost by the content management system utilized by Portland IMC.

"But wasn't the latest killing justified?"
flyer format This is something that's been asked a lot lately: "But wasn't the officer's use of deadly force justified? I can see why people got angry about something like the beating of Rodney King, which was obviously breaking the law. But the shooting of Jack Dale Collins, for example, was by the book, and as such justified." So why continue protesting? Aren't masked anarchists really just hooligans looking for any ridiculous excuse to cause trouble?
Well it's technically true that all of Portland's recent cases of death-by-cop have been "justified." And that's exactly the problem.

Side forum: animal lib and anti-police.
The speciesist slang term for a cop is "pig". This term has been used for centuries to put a label on cops that is revealing of the character of police and policing. Animal liberationists, seeking to abolish all forms of animal oppression, argue that the term is not only pejorative, parelleling terms that are sexist, racist, classist, ableist, ageist, sizeist, homophobic, etc, but that the term is distastefully used against a common enemy to all freedom fighters of which animal liberationsists are a growing and worthy contributing constituency deserving of respect.

Sea Lion Party in the Gorge! Report Back
Watching salmon demonstrating how hard it is to get through the dam. Sea lion defenders held a community building vegan faux fish fry and sea lion party in the Columbia gorge today. Mother nature smiled on the event. On the way up we could see that spring had brought new life into the world again. The trees are all leafing out in tender green again, and the salmon are churning up into the river again. With them, as always, have come the sea lions and the osprey and the eagles and all the others who awaken and return with the spring. Thanks to everyone who turned out!

Recent FERC approval of the Ruby Pipeline proposed to deliver natural gas from Wyoming to Malin, OR happens to be the same location where the Pacific Connector proposed from Coos Bay would enter CA. Local residents, environmentalists and others are concerned that the many miles of pipeline delivering natural gas would also cause significant damage in the event of an earthquake or other natural hazards. Furthermore this distribution into CA is coming at the expense of neighbor states and decreases CA ratepayers chance of ever obtaining true energy independence.

What happened in Olympia -- Some notes on opacity
On April 8, 2010, the metropolis finally opened its arms to us. With a history of somewhat homogenous anarchist events in Olympia, WA, we attempted to detach ourselves from the traditional mode of collective attack that the city has become familiarized with. Rather than bloc up, cause some destruction, and try to run away before the police snatch us, we decided to have a march in response to recent state violence wherein smashing a few windows and avoiding arrest wasn't the purpose of the action. Instead, we hoped to create something of a fairly calm spectacle that the police would be drawn to, creating potentialities for rifts elsewhere in the metropolis while the police tried to contain our march. All in all, the march's main goal was to maximize damage elsewhere while minimizing risk at the march itself. With this objective in mind, the action was a complete disaster.

Solo the Sea Lion Mourns on the Banks of the Columbia
A short time ago, I posted a quick report after getting a call from our monitor out at the dam. But I need to post this one now. This is the monitor's own report, filed this evening by a courageous sea lion defender out on the banks of the river. This report is much more detailed and painful than the short summary posted earlier, and it is important to understand how deeply these animals are bonded to each other, and how deeply wounded they can become when one of their loved companions is taken away and killed by the State. This report is straight from the monitor, who wrote it from the Sea Wolf tonight.
