From Gallup: "Ten percent of Americans in August approve of the job Congress is doing, tying last February's reading as the lowest in Gallup's 38-year history of this measure. Eighty-three percent disapprove of the way Congress is doing its job." So what happens when the approval rating hits 0%? Does America automatically revert back to Monarchy (for all you Sid Meier fans out there), and what then? Back to Slavery?
On July 31, as promised, Rose City Antifascists delivered a message to white supremacist organizers our state. We tracked down leading Volksfront International activists Casey and Alaina Joy Banyas of Albany, OR at their residence, and also located Volksfront leader Nick Cheshire at his workplace, Morgan Distributing in Portland. In addition, our organization also asked for information from those living near the last known address for Nick Cheshire and wife, Leah Cheshire (nee Crandall), in Oregon City. We mailed flyers to about 250 to the neighbors of these neo-Nazi thugs, and also contacted Nick Cheshire's employers at Morgan Distributing about the presence of a neo-Nazi activist within their company.

Manila, Ca. - 30 Earth First! activists protesting Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) logging practices rallied peacefully outside the gates of SPI's Arcata mill on Monday, demanding a stop to the company's logging of old-growth.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is asking for your input on what impacts to consider when exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States to Asia. The Jordan Cove/Pacific Connector proposal would include the impacts of building a 235-mile pipeline through southern Oregon, cutting through nearly 400 streams, likely using eminent domain, clear-cutting through 80 miles of public forests, decreasing national energy supplies and increasing domestic prices by exporting U.S. natural gas from a terminal in Coos Bay.
We are calling for the immediate release of our friend Anna Karewicz (often called Ankah), a much beloved member of the SF Bay Area activist community and beyond. She is currently being held with an ICE (immigration) hold and is fighting imminent deportation.
Coal Trains and Barges will go through Portland and Vancouver unless we stop them. This short article shows where the trains will go and where they will leave a path of environmental damage.
¿Qué diría usted si supiera que alguien ha matado a 60,000 personas? ¿Lo llamaría un delito grave? ¿Si se sacara el valor total de todas esas vidas en los tribunales, cuanto diría que valen?
La escritura fantasma se ha vuelto un problema en la comunidad médica y la debacle de Vioxx es un ejemplo perfecto de por qué la escritura fantasma en las investigaciones médicas es una práctica artera que necesita ser arrancada de raíz.

Una vez más, podríamos decir que donde un psiquiatra pone una pastilla, pone un arma asesina... No hay más que ver la cantidad de asesinatos que están vinculados con personas que están en "tratamiento" psiquiátrico... el último de ellos, en Denver, COLORADO,
One day in the near future kids and adults will go to the doctor and pay no bills.
In the 1800s, a series of bonds were issued by the Peruvian government to those that wanted to buy them. These bonds were to be PAID in GOLD when they reached maturity. Since the amount of gold to be paid out was PEGGED to the value of gold in the 1800s which was low, these bonds were very valuable. Still don't get it? Okay, let's say that you had a bond that had a face value of $1,000 in GOLD...but gold was valued at $10.00 an ounce back in the 1800s. To repay you the $1,000 in gold at $10.00 an ounce, the bond would pay 100 ounces of gold. In today's dollars, that $1,000 contract would be worth about $160,000 (rounded up), because gold is worth about 1,580 per ounce. Multiply that idea by MILLIONS OF OUNCES and you have some idea of the situation that the Durham trust found itself in just a decade ago.
Rally held at Terry Schrunk Plaza at the end of June protesting Nestle proposal to build a new bottling plant in the town of Cascade Locks on the Columbia River, capturing the pristine water of Oxbow Springs.

Last night in Seattle we smashed the windows of two banks and a Starbucks. It is saddening that so many people experience banks as institutions of exploitation yet refuse to take the step of attacking them, as for smashing up a Starbucks, it may be the only Seattle tradition worth continuing since the WTO.
Seems the last stop on the architect and engineers for 9/11 truth will livestream their last stop on the current speaking tour. Richard Gage will hold a Q & A afterward the presentation.
Requests of Hoopa Valley Tribes for water for salmon go nowhere, Humboldt Water Right Won't be Used

Starting up the class again. Next Tuesday (July 17th)
Early morning, July 10, SWAT police forced their way into the Seattle apartment of organizers from the Occupy movement. Police kicked down the front door and threw flash-bang grenades into the house.
This action targets well known activists from Occupy Seattle and the Red Spark Collective (part of the national Kasama network).
This apartment has been a hub for organizing the Everything 4 Everyone festival in August - to bring together West Coast forces for a cultural and political event building on the year of Occupy.
On Wednesday, July 11th, Columbia County Citizens for Human Dignaty (CCCHD) will host a public forum to discuss the proposed coal export projects in Columbia County. The purpose of the forum is to identify public concerns regarding the project, and clarify misinformation. Panelists representing: the corporations making the proposals, advocacy groups that oppose the proposals on environmental grounds, and agencies in a position to regulate the proposed projects, have been invited to attend in order to answer questions and hear testimony.

In Portland's broad community of anarchists I'm coming across more and more self-described "anarchists" and "anti-authoritarians" that have little knowledge of the philosophies backing up their "anarchist" ideals. They are "anarchists" who seek nihilism and violence - not as a mean, as an end. I sense that many of these individuals are adopting the term "anarchist" as a justification for their actions, and not as a philosophy. It would be harmless if it were only a fashion, a Circle-A badge on their school bag, but this is not the case, it is much more dangerous. Soon we will see Anarchism as synonymous with Terrorism, as it is in the UK, and there will be much truth to it. We can only blame ourselves for this, and only we can do something about it.
All four of the books in the Anarchist Interventions book series by the IAS and AK Press are available at the Red and Black Cafe, and Imperiled Life is now available at Reading Frenzy, at 921 SW Oak, near Powells.

The ORP Executive Committee is meeting to appoint ALL Alternate Delegate positions when most of these positions were in fact filled during the conventions. We will have a presence outside the meeting and attempt to go inside to observe the meeting.
At the edge of the world and the end of civilization, we stand on the abyss of ecological collapse, mass extinction and catastrophic change. Our bioregion is under an assault by corporations and the cancer that is consumerism. This assault is a series of battles from the theft of the water commons by Nestlé. The theft of coal from Rockies and its spreading of black dust on across our lands on trains headed to the coast. The mismanagement of the US government and theft of public funds by Bechtel of nuclear waste at Hanford as well as a denial of contamination of the Columbia watershed. The proposal of fracking in southwest Washington State. Mass denial or even cover up of radiation from Fukushima in water, milk, food, tuna and so forth. All the while the society is under attack with tuition costs, public transportation fare increases, social safety-net cuts, debt increases, foreclosures and a health insurance system that is nothing else but a pyramid scheme. While drones fly over head as police surveillance increases and the death toll mounts in wars overseas. On October 7th will be the eleventh year of the American Imperial War in Afghanistan. Maybe its time for a paradigm shift before global climatic and ecological collapse! Free Cascadia, decolonize your mind and liberate your spirit!
Video and photos from the "Keep Nestle Out Of the Gorge" Rally. The rally was well attended and participants were extremely passionate about prohibiting Nestle from buying Oregon water on the cheap to sell it back at enormous profits.

On Friday, June 22, 2012, at 3:00 p.m., I organized the No Nukes NW Action "Shut Down, Not Meltdown" at the Consulate General of Japan in Portland OR at the Wells Fargo Center. A rally and Die-In took place simultaneously on that date and time, with coordinated actions along the west coast, including Los Angeles CA, and San Francisco CA, as well as in Japan and internationally.

It seems to me,and I am just one voice blowing in the breeze,that there is alot of peripheral profits being made by these two "defenders of the voiceless" to disseminate the right kind of news dare I say, in a direction steered away from very pressing injustices with regard to more local issues right here at home.
The Allen and Company Conference will bring together media moguls, politicians, and other elites for a week of recreation and deal-making in a small mountain town, unless someone shuts it down.

While most Americans celebrate Independence Day, trade negotiators and corporate lobbyists from throughout the Pacific Rim will be meeting in San Diego over the week of July 4th for a major trade summit aimed at rushing the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) towards completion. In San Diego and throughout the country, labor, environmental, immigrant rights, family farm and Occupy activists will be coming together to take actions that drag the TPP out of the shadows and expose it to the light of day!
There's going to be a big party for a famous moderate democrat. Earl has voted for the DOMA law to ban gay marriage. He's refused to answer questions in town hall meetings on impeachment. He's voted for free trade, the list goes on. Please add a comment as to why we should not celebrate this democrat's 40 years in public office.

I think that to many non-thesis masters degrees in biology have too many cell biology, microbiology, genetics, immunology, and seminars and to few zoology courses so here are some suggestions.

This is a new piece I made, Charismatic Megafauna.
It is 50 minutes long and consists of footage that was shot by biologists during the wolf capture (in Canada) and reintroduction in to the USA in the mid 90's. There also is 16mm footage that I shot when I lived in Chicago in the early 80's with a wolfdog.
This piece gives you a behind the scenes look at the reintroduction.

We need to get rid of private insurance and replace it with a government run single payer health insurance.
This Sunday we're going to get a partial eclipse in the Portland area which should start shortly after 5PM. Check it out even if you're not pagan because it's some cool sciency shit and doesn't happen that often.
For 3 weeks, urban farm activists occupied and farmed a plot of land in Albany, CA. Riot police raided the farm on May 14... The ground we were sitting on would eventually be paved over with concrete or asphalt, according to the UC [Berkeley] plan. The UC administrators were supposed to be the stewards of this parcel of public land, but who ever told them it was theirs to develop? I thought of the 19th century philosopher who famously defined property as theft.
To promote the upcoming Earth First! (bio)regional rendezvous, some Earth First!ers are touring Cascadia to spread the seeds of ecological resistance.
from tom dispatch ...
Just days later, his long-time literary agent Richard Kahlenberg wrote me that Chick had left a final document on his computer, something he had been preparing in the months before he knew he would die, and asked if TomDispatch would run it. Indeed, we would. It's not often that you hear words almost literally from beyond the grave -- and eloquent ones at that, calling on all Ecotopians, converted or prospective, to consider the dark times ahead. Losing Chick's voice and his presence is saddening. His words remain, however, as do his books, as does the possibility of some version of the better world he once imagined for us all. Tom
For the past few weeks, word of the extent of the Fukushima disaster is spreading like the radiation slick moving across the Pacific Ocean thanks to social media and a lot of newly concerned citizens.
Independent researchers who have been trying to warn people for over a year are finally being heard. Much of that can be attributed to citizen journalists, who have realized mainstream media dropped the ball on this a long time ago.
