Call out for West Coast Days of Action Feb 26th and 27th against police
This call out for Specifically West Coast solidarity is not meant to exclude any regions from acting (in fact we encourage it!) but to reaffirm networks of affinity that already exist. To realize our strength as a collective force, and the feelings of joy that spread through moments of solidarity and revolt in the face of a common enemy. It is our actions together that bind us.

The young male Wenaha Wolf lived in the Umatilla National Forest of the Blue Mountain Range, in the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness. He was fitted with a radio collar in early August, and shot dead by an unknown assailant in early October 2010. That person likely had a receiver tuned to his frequency who tracked him down and brutally shot him in his home territory.

Tell the Forest Service not to privatize Bagby and 27 campgrounds
 http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/1810/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=5546

The Forest Service has proposed to privatize management of Bagby Hot Springs and 27 campgrounds in Mt. Hood National Forest. These 27 remote and beautiful campgrounds represent the last remaining publicly managed campgrounds in Mt. Hood National Forest. Babgy Hot Springs is the only free hot spring in the area and is one of our region's gems. Under this proposal, for-profit companies will manage and profit from our favorite places to relax.

Report from Noise Demo Outside Seattle Jail on Sunday Night
On Sunday night at 10pm around 40 people met in front of the downtown Seattle jail on 5th avenue. They proceeded to make noise with bells, pots, horns, yelling, screaming, howling, chanting, and the like. People yelled such things as "Hate, hate, hate, the hate inside of me. All cops are bastards, A-C-A-B!" and "cops, pigs, murderers!" A surveillance camera was taken down, a grate from the guards parking lot was ripped down, and a trashcan was thrown at a cop. A lot of noise was made for 40 minutes. People locked in jail were banging on the windows of several stories and could be visibly seen from across the street.

Screenings of END:CIV in Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle
flyer for olympia events END:CIV examines our culture's addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. Based in part on Endgame, the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END:CIV asks: "If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?" The causes underlying the collapse of civilizations are usually traced to overuse of resources. As we write this, the world is reeling from economic chaos, peak oil, climate change, environmental degradation, and political turmoil. Every day, the headlines re-hash stories of scandal and betrayal of the public trust. We don't have to make outraged demands for the end of the current global system - it seems to be coming apart already.

Excessive-Force Case Filed Over Lab Mix Who Dared to Sniff Police Dog's Butt
Slyder Police departments are perennially accused of excessive force--the poignant SPD shooting of Native American carver John Williams being just the latest example. Usually, however, the victims are human beings. Not so in an excessive-force case recently filed in federal court, which details the fatal shooting of a Labrador retriever mixed-breed dog named Slyder, allegedly for doing little more than sniffing the butt of a police dog.

Radical Botany Skillshare: Why native plants are important to the survival of the plane
Fenders Blue Butterfly and Kincaid Lupine Native plants are not just something pretty to look at. They have a direct link to human, insect and ecosystem survival. They are an essential link in the web of life. We all need to work on removing the turf and black top and bringing native plants back into our biome. Yet since the 1840's over 80 million acres have been taken out of native landscapes. Landscapes have been paved over, planted in non native turf grass and tilled for non native crops. It is time to welcome them home.

Please post info on FBI expansion center being built in Portland
Yesterday on KBOO, I heard that the FBI are building a large, new center near the airport, and discussion that this false promise of "jobs" might condition us to allow more surveillance on citizens/residents and more violation of rights, at a location prime for transfer to foreign torture facilities and internal little gitmo-type prisons within prisons in each state. Near the same time I heard on KBOO or AM 620 Thom Hartmann how planes were used to dump bodies in the ocean of people tortured/murdered in Argentina. And I read that the FBI have portable observation/crowd control towers coming to Portland. Does this connect with alleged plans to build a larger bridge between Vancouver and Portland fit for large troop transport vehicles from Fort Lewis and Hanford Nuclear waste areas and eastern Oregon chemical weapons depot and predator drones? Or with the DEQ and EPA requiring Portland to waste money on unneeded water treatment plant and private contractors (CIA Torture contractor Bectell?) and non-accountable criminal militarized police so the city taxes cannot be used on civilian protections and emergency preparedness and self-sufficiency?
