No Free Speech in Seattle's Public Market
The PRIVATE Public Market in Seattle When a town wants to ban free speech, the first thing they do is ban street performance and then label all political speech activity as street performance, thereby prohibiting free speech via street performance ordinances...This technique of squashing 1st Amendment rights has been effectively employed, in my opinion, by Seattle...

International Women's Day interview with Claire Robillard
Every year, women around the world gather to celebrate International Women's Day on March 8. The occasion provides an opportunity to reflect on the progress made towards equality and justice for women, and to demand change in the struggle against sexism and patriarchy. Claire Robillard has helped organise International Women's Day events since she moved to Vancouver in 1994. Last week, Seven Oaks ( http://www.sevenoaksmag.com/) spoke to Robillard about the role of IWD and the women's movement in the context of severe cutbacks to women's centres and other programs necessary for women's equality in British Columbia.

The Nine Bioregions of Oregon
Oregon Watersheds and Distinct Cultural Areas Oregon can now be seen as nine distinct regions, each with its own values, economic approach and political outlook. These differences are at the heart of why the Legislature has been gridlocked, why there is little consensus on how to compete in the global economy and why Oregon's prospects don't seem as clear as they did 30 years ago when timber was king. While the Legislature was embroiled in its longest session ever, The Oregonian sent a team of reporters and photographers to survey the new Oregon. Increasingly, the nine bioregions of Oregon are fighting different global competitors while questioning whether their government in Salem understands what they're up against.

Although many economists, business groups and finance experts continue to push for a sales tax, voters statewide have rejected that nine times.Oregon also could consider changing the balance in taxes between businesses and individuals. Businesses enjoy many tax breaks that individuals do not. Corporations pay an income tax rate of 6.6 percent, compared with a top rate of 9 percent for individuals. IF CORPORATIONS WANT TO PRETEND THEY ARE PEOPLE, THEY SHOULD BE TAXED EQUALLY, JUST LIKE PEOPLE.

Presentation on Oregon Eco-Defense Political Prisoner Jeffrey (“Free") Luers today at 2
Jeffrey Luers is an Oregon environmental/social justice activist and political prisoner. In June 2001, he was handed an extremely heavy-handed sentence of 22 years in prison for his participation in the destruction of several Sports Utility Vehicles [SUVs]. His reason for targeting SUVs was because they are wasteful and harmful to the environment. The blatant injustice in this case has prompted a wide-range of people to join Jeff's support movement.

Same-Sex Marriage Sweeps the County
Yesterday, Multonomah County sold nearly 300 marriage licenses to same-sex couples. It was the first day that same-sex couples were allowed to buy the licenses which cost $60 each. The Oregon Constitution does not define criteria for marriage outside of age. Lawyers found that it would be unlawful for the County to not issue the licenses since the constitution allows this. County Commissioner Lisa Naito said: "Multnomah County cannot deny marriage licenses to Gay or Lesbian Couples. We will not allow discrimination to continue when the Constitution of the State of Oregon grants privileges equally to all citizens."

Part of the County Attorney's opinion reads, "Refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples violates Article 1, Section 20, of the Oregon Constitution... Multnomah County is required to act in accordance with the Constitution." Finding that not issuing marrriage licenses violates the State Constitution, county commissioners asked that the rest of the state follow suit and allow same-sex marriages. In Medford, people rallied in support of this, and asked for licenses to be issued in Jackson County as well. Medford Rally and March VIDEO
