FREE MIKE D! Save the Oak Grove Watershed!
Mike D leaflets against OHSU's outdated animal research Thirteen days of unjust incarceration has not dampened the spirits of Michael McMullin, better known to the activist community as Mike D, who maintains that he's "doing fine" despite his stark surroundings. He is currently held in Clackamas County Jail in Oregon City for an alleged Class B Misdemeanor charge related to disorderly conduct at the Solo Timber Sale Protest, July 30, 2002, with a maximum fine of $1000 and six months in jail (Case # - CR0311198) For more on that protest and an audio file of the days speeches at  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/02/44015.shtml

Happy to Harass
The arrest and incarceration occurred when Mike D attended an (unrelated?) court hearing the morning of Wednesday June 9. Despite the fact that eight other arrest warrants from this old growth direct action have long ago been dropped; Mike D is being singled out from the Solo Sale Protest. Miscommunication surrounds the decision to lock up Mike D. Judge Thorn claims Mike failed to keep in touch with his court appointed attorney, Leonard Kovac. However, Mike countered that even though Kovac was trying to get fired from his case, he had attempted to call the attorney. In a hastily scheduled hearing last week, Kovac did successfully seek dismissal from the case claiming his relationship with the defendant had "broken down." It was soon revealed, however, that Kovac was not experienced with the constitutional motions Mike D intends to use to make his case and Kovac was simply unqualified. A new court appointed attorney will be selected and a new hearing date has been scheduled for Tuesday, July 27th at 9 am in Oregon City's Courthouse. Mike D will attempt to free himself with a request for a release hearing and "reduction of bail" request.

BE A WITNESS and Enjoy the Forest
This summer the Forest Service has authorized numerous timber sales in the Mt. Hood National Forest, basically in the back yard or the Portland area. These cuts are on public land, subsidized by public money, yet requests to end old growth logging are ignored. The Mt. Hood National Forest is one of many places were the last of the region's old growth forests are being logged to pad the pocket books of timber companies. But something can be done...

Kucinich progressive values being widely embraced
Recognizing Campaign achievements

The Dennis Kucinich presidential campaign has changed the American political landscape. Even though the Democratic Party appears headed to selecting its presumptive nominee, Dennis Kucinich, with the help of dedicated and determined supporters, has kept the debate on the issues alive long after others bowed out. And if you look closely at platform resolutions adopted at state conventions currently underway across the country, the progressive values of the Kucinich campaign are loudly and clearly being embraced and advanced by Democrats around the nation. The resolutions are essentially endorsements by the state Democratic parties of specific ideas and policies. With the primary season coming to an end, let's take a moment to acknowledge the hard work of our grassroots in getting these resolutions passed.

This is a letter describing the issues that I found to be discouraging in this article. If you didn't read the article, well, basically, what I have to say is that the problems we face are the results of many forces, and that we shouldn't point fingers at the innocent and powerless, and also that when we as 'radicals' use anthropology to make our points, we should look at who we get our info from.
