Shut Down HLS - Seaboard Securities & Bernard Madoff
In December 2004 Seaboard Securities made a statement to the press stating they would not be trading stock in Huntingdon Life Sciences (LSRI) again. Despite this public statement Seaboard Securities did trade HLS/LSRI stock in 2005 - over 1 million shares were handled by this disreputable company. However, Seaboard Securities cannot do this trading alone, they have roped in unwitting accomplices and one of them is Bernard Madoff.

Who are Bernard Madoff? Seaboard Securities are a Broker Dealer only whereas Bernard Madoff are an Executing Broker i.e. Seaboard get customer orders but they can't execute the order themselves so they pass it on to Bernard Madoff who buy and sell the shares for them. Unwittingly Bernard Madoff would have traded over a million shares in LSRI for Seaboard!

Please ask Bernard Madoff, politely of course, not to trade in LSRI stock.

Remember HLS are in a precarious position financially, with them failing to get on the NYSE last year and the bonds coming up, so please remember these financial action alerts are vitally important.

Thanks and good luck!

Paid to Harass Counter-Recruiters?
The Tuesday evening weekly counter-recruiting vigil at 1317 NE Broadway has been plagued with a man who claims to be a Viet Nam veteran, calling himself "John White." He struts up and down the sidewalk, yelling "NOW LISTEN UP!" at the group, or telling individuals, "I HATE YOU!" He has asked for our names, taped, and photographed us. He has done this quite faithfully for about two months now.

Ironically, his actions have caused even more protesters, especially those awesome VFP 72 folks, to hit the streets on Tuesday evenings. So steadfast has "John White" been in his efforts that we have jokingly speculated that he is probably being paid by the recruiters to do this dirty deed.

It may be no joke. Some of us went to a nearby restaurant after last Tuedsday's vigil. We walked back down Broadway to return to our car. There was "John White," busily washing the front window of the recruiting office. Beside him on the sidewalk was a bucket full of soapy water. Hmmm..... Strangely enough, he had nothing to say to us as we passed.

Schumacher Furs Protest Report, January 21

About 30 people showed up at Schumacher Furs (811 SW Morrison) to protest the intense cruelty to animals in the fur trade. Protestors handed out literature, vigorously chanted, and held up signs letting passers-by and the few who chose to enter the store know about what goes on in the fur business (see http://www.furisdead.com for info and videos).

Every week Schumacher's comes up with a new tactic to try to intimidate protestors. Schumacher's has now hired two cameramen to videotape every minute of the protest, which lasted 5 hours today. They claimed to be "independent reporters."

It was a relatively quiet protest until the last three of us (who had been alone for an hour and a half with two cameras trained on us!) got ready to leave at 5:30pm. For some reason Schumacher's did not close the shop at 4:45 as usual, but waited for us to leave. We were all packed up, waiting to cross the street when suddenly four people (all Schumacher employees/owners) stormed out, including a woman with a dog. I said to her, "Do you know they use dog fur in China?" She ran towards me yelling, "Fuck you! Fuck you! Get the fuck out of here!" Classy. I thought the woman was going to attack me. One of the Schumacher owners then got extremely close to my face and yelled, "Get the fuck out of here!" We overheard one of the Schumachers tell a cameraman to "get this on film." I sat on my big plastic box and said, "I don't have to go anywhere. I'm not leaving." We were nowhere near their front door or property. They were yelling at us when their security guard told them to back down and go back inside. Then old Mr. Schumacher started telling us their fur is killed humanely and we should be protesting baseball instead (Don't even ask). [ read more ]

Schumacher finds someone unashamed to wear their fur!

I'll call him/her "lassie" (S)he came in to the store with her friends dressed in a gorgeous exotic, 100% real fur coat rivaling anything on Schumachers racks.

Probably ten people in the store. The only one wearing fur came in on four paws and laid on the floor to have her tummy scratched.

In a less "hostile" environment I'd have the rubber lenshood up to the glass to get a picture.

It is beyond fascinating to me that the salespeople in there dont wear the clothing.- but, then again, it isn't clothing, it's pure status. Still- if you walk into a jewelry store the salespeople are wearing jewelry.. [ read more ]

It Would Be Funny if it Weren't so Tragic
What are you supposed to do when the world's most over-armed, belligerent and dangerous nation, which outspends all the rest of the world combined on arms, and which is the major arms supplier to the rest of the world, tells a little country like Venezuela that it is guilty of spending "too much" on its military?

The initial response is laughter. What a joke, right? Venezuela, awash in oil revenue and feeling a little threatened by threats from the United States to assassinate its leader and by U.S. funding for groups that are trying to foment a coup, wants to spend a few hundred million on planes from Spain and Brazil to modernize its air force, and the U.S. State Department gets all worked up.

Olympia Residents Stop Nazi March
Nazi Punks Fuck Off 1/22/06 Olympia - Hundreds of Olympia residents confronted Nazis outside of the corporate newspaper building here today. Nine members of the Nazi group National Socialist Movement gathered to test Olympia for future recruiting drives and a possible larger rally in July. Many of the Nazis dressed in SS Storm Trooper brownshirt uniforms and displayed large Nazi and American flags. Olympia residents were given less than a day's notice to spread the news and organize a response. Full Story & More Accounts

100 Anti Racists and 7 Nazis in Olympia: Seven Nazis came to Olympia today to hold a National Socialist Movement rally. With only 48 hours notice the Olympia community came out to show the Nazis they were not welcome to Olympia.

For more than an hour and a half the Olympia Police department used them selves and their bikes to seperate the march of anti rascists from the Nazis. The younger man with the beard claimed to be thier "leader" and stated he was in Olympia to protest "White european genocide". He also said he was inspired to be Nazi by a dream he had of Hitler where Hitler asked him to "fight for you race, fight for your nation." (Quote taken from video of rally)

The turn out of Olympians for the anti racist rally seemed to indicate sucess for those opposed to the presence of Nazis in Olympia. The Nazis also believe their day to be a sucess, according to nukeisrael.com, where they call the anti racist rally "commie scum". Full Story & photos

One Nazi and 100 Anti-Racists Show Up For Nazi Rally in Seattle: Nazi rallies were publicized for Olympia and Seattle on Jan. 22, 2006. But upon arrival at Seattle's Space Needle, I found about 150 anti-racist protesters and one lone self-proclaimed skinhead. Typical protest speeches were made, under a banner that said, "No Racists in Our Towns! Stop the Nazis!" But the really interesting part of the protest revolved around the lone Nazi who did show up and felt let down by his racist buddies. Full Story


KILLING WITHOUT MERCY 21.01.2006 16:47
Fouad Kaady's Killer "Cleared." Surprise, surprise
In September, Deputy Dave Willard of the Clackamas County Sheriff's office shot and killed Fouad Kaady in cold blood. He did it, ironically enough, because he did not want to get blood on his hands. Today, he was "cleared" by the Clackamas county board of review. According to Samira Kaady, they did not even have the grace to tell the family. Instead, she learned that her son's killer would be exhonerated from a local news reporter, who called to get her comment. Those who remember the egregious "coverage" this situation received in the corporate media will not be surprised to know that she did not give them a comment. She chose to give indymedia the story instead.

Upon learning of this shocking news, I called the Clackamas County Sheriff's office (CCSO) to find out what their thinking process could possibly be. I spoke to Deputy Wendi Babst, the public relations officer. Although this information will not be publically released until later this evening, Deputy Wendi Babst, the PIO, stated that CCSO reviewed the incident in which Fouad was killed, and determined that "no policies or procedures were violated." I expressed surprise that someone could approach an unarmed, injured person, bleeding in the street, and taze him repeatedly and then shoot him without violating any policies or procedures. She assured me that Clackamas County policies and procedures do, in fact, allow such an action. (All citizens of Clackamas County be warned.)

Asked whether there would be any changes in policies or procedures, since this points out some very disconcerting problems, she said that there likely would be some changes. She said that the first step in such a review is to determine whether policies were followed, and the next step will be to determine whether any changes can be made. (One would hope.) Asked what they will do to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again, she offered some very revealing insight into how these things work. Said Deputy Babst, the CCSO will likely form a critical incident review board, so that they can "study" incidents like this one. IN addition, they will be ensuring that more officers receive Crisis Intervention Team Training. When I pointed out that Officer Willard had, in fact, already received that training, she conceded that he did. "How, then, do you imagine that this training will prevent another senseless death, if the person who committed this one had the training?" "I'm not going to debate you," she responded. "I'm just gonna tell you that we will have the training." At this point, she made an interesting comment when she called me Cat, and said that she could give me a syllabus from the classes, but that "you will only put it up on indymedia." I found this quite interesting indeed, since I had not told her my name, or mentioned any connection with indymedia. Hmmm. Surprise, surprise.

SHAC Benefit: Early Report Back
Tonight, there is an art auction and benefit show for the SHAC 7, at Merrimac (1216 SE Division). It was truly inspiring to see so many, many people stuffed into(and spilling out of) Merrimac. In the face of an almost overwhelming attempt at repression of the animal rights movement, it was great to see that people are nevertheless still willing to strongly voice their continuing commitment to making the world a better place for all beings. Even subtracting the blatantly obvious "undercover" agents, there were easily hundreds of people in attendance. The room was filled with beautiful art that people had donated toward a silent auction, and bidding was heavy. All proceeds from the night will go toward supporting the SHAC 7.

Readers will likely remember that these seven activists are facing the possibility of years in prison for the "crime" of speaking out against the abuse and torture of non-human animals. I had the opportunity to talk to Josh Harper tonight, one of the accused. And may I say, he truly rocks. He spoke eloquently about the need to wake up and do something positive in defense of animals, as well as the importance of avoiding "tactical dogma." (As I am tired tonite, I will not attempt to paraphrase him right now. Rather, I will let him speak for himself in an upcoming Video from the Resistance, since he gave a lengthy interview on camera.)

Since he's facing the possibility of some heavy time behind bars just for speaking, I asked whether he was nervous about talking to me on camera, whether this experience would silence him. He smiled and shook his head, then laughed, "I'm a big mouth." He went on to say that facing jail time for talking has made him wonder, "What good is talking." He pointed out that he and the other activists are facing the same kind of sentences as if they had been out participating in real direct action that would possibly have made a bigger difference.

If you are unfamiliar with the history of the SHAC 7, see these sites and others: www.pressaction.com; www.shac7.com/"; SHAC-7 trial: Wednesday, June 1st in Trenton NJ.

Watching Rove bait the media with eco-activists' lives
So I think of my innocent friend sitting in jail on false charges and I think of all the other innocent eco-defenders the Administration used this morning in latest success in diverting attention from impeachable offencesand international human rights crimes.

And I look forward to the day when the breaking story is about the indictments of Bush Cheney Ashcroft Gonzales Woo et al - in the Hague.

Most of all, I look forward to the day that the accused eco-activists are acquitted.

But between now and the impeachment/war crimes trials, I expect to see more show arrests, more sudden "terrorist" announcements during awkward hearings, and more ecocide.

Murderer Scott McCollister to be Rewarded (Again.)
It's been a few years now, since a young mother was gunned down on a cold, dark ramp near the freeway. Kendra James was only 21 years old on the night she took her last breath and bled her life away through the jagged hole made by a police bullet. Remember? It was Scott McCollister who pulled the trigger. He shot her through her chest, then dragged her out of the car, handcuffed her shaking arms behind her back, and lay her, face-down, on the cold, hard concrete. And he left her there to die. The corporate media told us it was all right, because after all, she must have been "just another crack addict."

Every time I think of this, I remember why the police will always be my enemy. I remember that they can kill without mercy, and without consequence. I remember that their guns are always loaded, and always pointed at those out on the fringes of "respectable" society. They prowl the haunts of poor people, people of color, homeless people, people who don't fly American flags. They use laws, bullets, and machismo to keep "certain" people on their knees, and then they pretend that makes them heroes. It does not.

Anti-WTO Solidarity Video to Show
As the World Trade Organization met in China last month, the People met in the streets. And, as always, the people of Portland came to the streets in solidarity with people all over the world who are fighting the stark oppression wrought by the "New World Order," and specifically, by the WTO. Aside from a large march that wound through the city, there were several exciting break-away actions, including a building occupation at the Cascade Policy Institute, and a boisterous protest against the oppression of animals at Schumacher Furs.

Street videographers captured much of the action on film, and will be showing a piece at the next VFTR entitled, "Which Side Are You On?" If you were there, come and see, and celebrate the action with us. If you were not, come and see what you missed. Either way, see you there.

Surviving the Struggle-Health Care
Today most of us live from pay check to pay check. Our lives are at the mercy of our employers and their willingness to pay us enough to survive. The basic human rights that we all need stand at the end of that paycheck, and we struggle to obtain as many of them as possible.

Just a few years ago in Oregon, heath care was given priority. The state did not offer much but what it did offer saved the lives of many. The Oregon Heath Plan stood between death and survival for many of us. Before my son was born my partner and I had very few options in front of us. We were very poor and having a baby was something that we could not afford. We got on the Oregon Health Plan and suddenly we had a few options. We found out that we didn't have to have our child in a sterile hospital. We could have our child with a Mid-wife in a Birth House. The experience was so much better than I had seen before, no doctors telling a woman how to feel or complicating thing with tech jargon. There was a person with us that honestly cared for us, and not just about our health but also about our well-being. It was the most real experience of my whole life.

2 more arrests and direct evidence of FBI infilitration of activist meetings around US

The FBI's witch hunt against activists continues, with two more charged with arson in the last 36 hours, both Cascadian environmentalists. Jonathon Paul, 39 [pictured], of Ashland and Suzanne Nicole "India" Savoie, 28, of Appelgate were both were arrested on a criminal complaint of arson, allegedly for involvement in a 2001 firebombing at the offices of a Superior Lumber Mill in Glendale, OR, an action claimed by the Earth Liberation Front.

Jonathan has long been an outspoken advocate for direct action for environmental causes, gaining the attention of numerous industry backed anti-environmental [1, 2] watch groups and the FBI for his activism. Jonathan also was involved in Earth First! campaigns, was on the Sea Shepard crew, and was involved in founding the American Whales Alliance and Ocean Defense International. Jonathan also spent 6 months in jail in 1992 for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating Animal Liberation Front activities.

Suzanne, also an environmental activist who most recently has been working to preserve the Baldlick roadless area, was visited on December 7th by two FBI agents and several state police officers who subpoenaed her to appear before the grand jury hearing scheduled for February 16th in Eugene. The FBI tried to intimidate her into talking, essentially stating that "women usually take the fall for men and that she shouldn't let that happen". Jonathon was also subpoenaed around the same time.

Jonathon's arraignment is Thursday, January 19th at 3:00 PM (this is a new date and time) at the Federal Building in Medford, OR, which is located at 310 W. 6th St (on the corner of 6th and Holly). Suzanne has not been arrested, and is still "at large". [ read more ]

Update (3:30 pm Thursday): Suzanne has now been arrested as well. Check back for updates on her arraignment.

Further Developments in Sacramento arrests: FBI infiltrator was running in activist circles

On Friday, January 13th Eric McDavid, Zachary Jenson and Lauren Weiner were arrested in Auburn, California and accused of "conspiring to damage or destroy by explosive or fire" cell phone towers, power plants and US Forest Service facilities. No arson occurred, however: the charges allege the 3 were planning one. All are requesting support and letters, and Lauren is requesting help securing vegan food.

The latest development here is the release of the FBI's affidavit in the case, which relies heavily on a deep cover, paid infiltrator. Supporters of the Auburn 3 identified the informant as a young woman named "Anna" who "went to Auburn" with the defendants shortly before their arrests. According to the affidavit "Anna" has has provided information in at least 12 anarchist cases since 2004. She has traveled to and infiltrated various anarchist gatherings and protests across the country including the Biodev 2005 demonstrations in Philadelphia, a CrimethInc. convergence in Indiana and the Feral Visions green anarchist gathering in North Carolina, all the while recording conversations and communicating with the FBI. [ read more ]

All this follows 6 arrests of people accused of Earth Liberation Front activities last month.

Please write letters of support to these prisoners. Always check for up-to-date contact information and guidelines at the North American Earth Liberation Prisoners Support Network and Portland Indymedia's Prisoner Support page.

Oregon AFL-CIO launches Fair Share Health Care initiative
The Oregon AFL-CIO is poised to introduce within days a Fair Share Health Care initiative modeled on the bill that passed in the Maryland Legislature last week. Maryland is the first state to require large corporations to provide health care for their employees. Oregon is one of more than 30 additional states using the legislation as a model.

"It's irresponsible and costly when non-union businesses boost their profits by denying health care to their employees and then letting taxpayers pick up the slack," said Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain. "The Oregon AFL-CIO will file a Fair Share Health Care initiative in the coming days to force large, profitable employers to pay their share toward a healthy workforce and healthy Oregon economy."

By requiring large corporations to report what they are spending on health care for their employees and requiring them to pay their fair share, a Fair Share Health Care Act in Oregon would:

-- reduce the bill Oregon taxpayers pay to cover profitable employers' labor costs;
-- help alleviate the financial pressures facing Oregon as we struggle to meet a growing need for Medicaid; and
-- level the playing field between companies providing good jobs and benefits to their workers and those that don't.

Hearings on Washington State's Fair Share Health Care bill, which would require companies of 5,000 or more to spend 9 percent of payroll on employee health care, begin tomorrow. The Maryland bill requires any private employer with more than 10,000 employees in the state to spend at least 8 percent of its payroll for workers' health care. Find more Fair Share Health Care information on the AFL-CIO web site.

January 14 Schumacher Fur Protest Report
Thanks to all of you (25-30 people) who made it out to Schumachers last Saturday to protest the fur industry. Schumacher has now hired security guards stationed outside the front door. The protest is alive and well (unlike the animals) as more and more people stop to ask questions about the fur industry.

Several students came by this week to interview us for school reports/projects. In Defense of Animals has added an educational display board to the protest showing graphic photos from the Chinese fur trade which includes dog and cat fur. More than 85% of thw world's fur products come from China where no laws govern the fur trade's abuse of animals. Beating and skinning alive is not uncommon. Dog and cat fur exported to the US from China is often deliberately mislabeled as being from other species. Consumers who purchase it are unaware they are wearing the fur of dogs and cats on their collar. Although its just as bad if its a fox, some people can only relate to the horrors of the fur trade if its fur from an animal that looks like their beloved Fluffy.

Come join us to stop the fur industry by protesting at Schumacher Furs every Saturday from 12:30 until about 4:00 at SW 9th and Morrison. Stop by and stay for however long you can. Signs, leaflets and vegan snacks provided.

Snitches, Security and Suspected ELFers
A discussion of basic movement security and the federal snitch program. With the recent round of arrests of suspected ELFers, it is a good time to remind ourselves of security issues. I am hoping to initiate a discussion on basic movement and covert ops security. I'm sure I can't think of everything, so add your comments if you think you have something useful to share.

Rule number one: Shut the fuck up! Never, ever, ever talk about an action after it has happened. What could be the point? To relive old times? Too risky. The USA PATRIOT Act has removed all "statute of limitations," labeled even our weakest actions "terrorism," and increased sentencing guidelines tenfold. Take your actions back to the earth with you. The FBI would be nowhere in their investigations if no one was talking.

Once in custody, shut the fuck up! Get a lawyer. (If your lawyer advises you that talking will get you a lighter sentence, get a new lawyer.) Don't admit to anything. REFUSE TO SPEAK ABOUT OTHERS. Anyone who watches TV knows (and for those of you who don't) THE POLICE LIE TO GET YOU TO TALK. How basic is that? You can't believe a word they say. They will break every law and civil right on the books to get information. They are motivated by arrests and convictions, not truth and justice, not saving the planet, not being your friend, or even being a respectable cop. They have no shame. They are NOT trying to help you. They DO NOT have the power to make deals, plea bargains or "talk to the judge or DA." They are out to screw you and/or all of your friends.

We cannot let the feds and a few snitches deter our "movement." Instead, we need to learn from our mistakes and get back to the important work of stopping the real eco-terrorists.

Roller Derby Woman Beaten Bloody By Pig
There was a show at the LIQUID LOUNGE, even though the flyer said Lizard lounge, and it WASN'T free, for some of our Assassination City derby girls. I met up with Amanda outside of Elm St. Tattoo, and there was a derby girl skating from the bar across the street to the tattoo parlor. No big deal. But a cop stopped her to give her a ticket. Well, she gave some attitude, but went with it. Kept her hands on the car while he wrote her a ticket. I crossed the street to the bar, and another skater went past me, nothing happened to her, even though her friend was getting a ticket for skating in the street.... very weird. I turned back around to look at the girl and the cop, and I see him wrestling her to the ground. She's screaming, this tiny girl, is struggling, while about 50 people gather and start yelling.

December - Activists Very Active
Dispite cold temperatures, last month was a very active month for activists around the country and the world.

In a campaign organized by MoveOn.org, volunteers across the country submitted over 400,000 petitions promoting a time based withdrawal from Iraq to 286 congressional home offices.

Activists in DC are showing up at the homes and offices of Bush Admimistration officials and congresspeople singing songs, delivering petitions and demonstrating against the war.

Henry Kissinger "was shouted down and called a mass murderer several times" during his appearance at New York University and Ann Coulter walked off the stage in Connecticut after being booed.

Baby Clothes, Who Needs Them / Where Do They Go?

We have a plethors of baby and small child clothes here at the Freecycling Center. In the last few weeks, we have had so many clothes donated we had to open up the Community Library space for donation storage. One thing that we seem to have trouble moving are baby and small child clothes.

Currently we have about 5 large milk crates full of them. We are looking for a good place (a place that will reach folks that need them and give them for free) to donate them or to raise awareness and bring folks into the store that can use them. [ read more ]

Best Of North Portland By St Johns Sentinel

I just found this checking out the St Johns Sentinal website and needed to share it. Thanx to everyone that has stopped in, donated books, or their dirty laundry. The community support for the blackrose collective space, has been both amazing, and at the same time, heartbreaking. The most rewarding & sad part of the bookstore for me is my collection of stuffed animals. I won't go into why I have such a love for them, but I started taking them out of the freebox area and hiding them amongst the bookshelfs, and little nooks and crannies. We have alot of single parent families who come in regularly with their young children to get clothes, food, and to see the joy on the childrens faces when they find a little animal pocking out from a bookshelf, it has become a game of hide and seek, and then to let them know that they can take it and give it a home (often a car, or couch). I, like them for that moment am overcome with a feeling of warmth, love and caring, it is a beautiful feeling, that I want so much for these children to have the opportunity to feel forever. But the despair & sadness of their situations hits me every single night when I put my head down to sleep..... And I know my work is just beginning... [ read more ]
