Bellingham Successfully Blockade Railway in Solidarity with West Coast Port Actions
The following communique was submitted to us after those arrested yesterday during the railway blockade were released this morning. A total of 12 people were arrested. The corporate media, as always, did a piss poor job of reporting on the political motives behind the blockade. We hope to get their message to our radical communities today.

Cover Me and The Right to Survive
Health care advocates in Eugene would love to see single-payer health insurance spread to Oregon.. Vermont passed a bill in June that will bring health insurance to everyone in that state. Could that happen in Oregon? The presence of Occupy Eugene is focusing our attention on inequality and injustice and mobilizing us to speak our truth.

Dangers of Wi Fi in Schools: A Public Health Emergency (Who Cares?)
Wi Fi emits radio frequency radiation, same as cell towers and phones. Portland Public School policy is not to lease property to cell phone companies for tower sites yet they bring towers into the schools. Recent measurements of one middle school show that children are sporadically exposed to 3 times or more the radiation than standing 200 yards from a cell tower. In some schools, that is a 7 hour exposure all day long. check website at the end of this post for more information and get involved. There is now a law suit against PPS.

West Coast Port Shutdown Dec 12th Purpose:vOakland has called for all West Coast ports to be shutdown on December, 12 2011.
LETS JOIN THEM!
In response to coordinated attacks on the occupations and attacks on workers across the nation
Occupy Oakland calls for the blockade and disruption of the economic apparatus of the 1% with a coordinated shutdown of ports on the entire West Coast on December 12th. The 1% has disrupted the lives of longshoremen and port truckers and the workers who create their wealth, just as coordinated nationwide police attacks have turned our cities into battlegrounds in an effort to disrupt our Occupy movement.

"How Vermont Won Health Care For All" speaking tour comes to Oregon, Dec. 12-17!
Last June, the Vermont legislature voted to create a universal health care program, following a three-year campaign by the Vermont Workers Center (VWC).

How did they do it? At first, people told them winning health care for all wasn't politically possible. By organizing thousands of people around the idea that health care is a human right, they were able to redefine the debate and convince their legislature to take action. You can learn about their campaign by reading "Lessons From The Single-Payer State," by VWC's director, James Haslam.
Even better, you can learn about Vermont's victory from the source!

Oregon - Anarchists sabotage rail line
On the night of November 28th, 2011, we sabotaged a rail line in Southern Oregon as part of a coordinated effort to disrupt the flow of commerce on the West Coast. We got tired of watching trains pass through our towns loaded with lumber, ore, cheap commodities, and other resources pillaged from the earth without consequence. We didn't do this out of a desire to create a more green, sustainable or humane civilization--we want nothing less than to see the total failure of this sick and rotten society.

Paramilitary Policing From Seattle to Occupy Wall Street
y building a progressive police organization, created by rank-and-file officers, "civilian" employees and community representatives. Such an effort would include plans to flatten hierarchies; create a true citizen review board with investigative and subpoena powers; and ensure community participation in all operations, including policy-making, program development, priority-setting and crisis management. In short, cops and citizens would forge an authentic partnership in policing the city. And because partners do not act unilaterally, they would be compelled to keep each other informed, and to build trust and mutual respect—qualities sorely missing from the current equation.
