Free Speech...would be a great idea...

 

“Steel barricade fencing now surrounds the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza outside the Lane County Courthouse — and will remain there until work crews “thoroughly clean” the public square that had been occupied earlier this week by a protest group.” The Associated Press knows how to sling a word or two…But news wire words are not free speech.  We all pay for those words one way or another.  Directly, in that if I want to use A/P words ‘straight no chaser’, I will get hit with a colossal fine.  And, Yes, Virginia; they can find me. Then there are the subtle costs of doing business with the Business as Usual people: You will be spun.  Your attention will be twisted until you only see what they feel it is safe for you to see.     Yesterday afternoon, a band of Occupy Eugene folk and others hopped the barricades and confronted  County Administrator Liane Richardson.

When the dust cleared only Alley Valkyrie was left standing – standing on the Free Speech Plaza, that is…and she was promptly handcuffed by Eugene police officers and led into the courthouse, where she was issued a citation for trespassing and then released.

 Valkyrie, who has been one of the more visible members of Occupy Eugene during the past year, said while being taken into custody that she would contest the misdemeanor charge in court and that she believes the free speech plaza’s closure is unconstitutional.

 Members of an Occupy Eugene offshoot known as SLEEPS (Safe Legally Entitled Emergency Places to Sleep) pitched more than a dozen tents in the plaza on Monday night in defiance of Eugene’s camping ban on public property.

Authorities closed the site down: “to ensure the health and safety and uninterrupted county operations.”

Resistance Tibetan-style: Self-Immolation, The Buddhist Suicide Bomb

Freedom Burning

China just hates it when a simple Occupation Operation goes South…What the hell?  Everyone is on fire?

Another week in Portland, another self-immolation in  Tibet.  And the silence mounts like a thunderhead on the horizon of the American collective conscience.  Now China is considering bringing murder charges against those dare to defy Chinese might by setting themselves on fire.  It’s the Buddhist brand of suicide bombing – the fire hurts no one but the one on fire.

 Since March 2011, more than 90 people are known to have set themselves on fire in protest against the repressive Chinese occupation of Tibet.   Self-immolations and protests are now taking place over a widening area of Tibet.   Viewed in the context of other recent significant protests, the self-immolations are understandable: Tibetans will not be ruled by China…especially a China seemingly bent upon the destruction of the Tibetan people.

 Wanchen Kyi, 16, Dokar Mo township, Eastern Tibet, 9 December 2012, died.  Schoolgirl Wanchen Kyi shouted "Long live His Holiness the Dalai lama, long live Tibetan people" as she set herself alight.   On five days' holiday from a local middle school at the time of her protest, she is survived by her parents and two sisters.

Three thousand local people attended her funeral service.

Bradley Manning Report

“True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.” 

- Clarence Darrow

 

James Averhart – a Chief Warrant Officer and Quantico’s Commanding Officer until January 2011 - was the officer who made the final call on all matters related to the Army’s attempts to ‘break’ Bradley. Averhart stamped  PFC Bradley Manning’s ticket to maximum isolation,  restricted custody in a 6×8 cell for nine months.  It was Averhart who  testified Friday in Fort Meade, to explain his approval of Manning’s treatment. He said that the severity of Bradley’s charges, which carry extremely long sentences, was a major factor in his decision to keep the young Army private on these conditions.

 CWO Averhart also testified about specific incidents in which he kept Bradley on Suicide Risk status for several days against Navy regulations, more details of Bradley’s confinement, and the process by which he approved keeping Bradley on Prevention of Injury (POI) each week.

 CWO Averhart made the final decision on Bradley’s custody and classification each week after receiving the Custody and Assignment (C&A) board recommendations, reviewing psychiatrists’ advice, and speaking with the brig counselor about his impressions.

Add it all up and Averhart’s testimony reveals that Bradley’s confinement status might as well have been preordained before his arrival at Quantico.

"One who breaks an unjust law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law. "
Martin Luther King, Jr.

As Arthur Stamoulis points out, one of the overlooked little morsels of fallout from the trans Pacific Partnership is the pollution reated in the Deep Blue Sea by tankers hauling fossil fuel  from source to market and from there ...to the air.  There is a lot more in this latest trade blunderbus - and none of it good.

 

Meanwhile...

So the Palestinian people by an overwhelming majority at last have got a toe in the door at the UN...So Israel retaliates by setting out to build more - How many more units?  Oh, 3,000 - settlers' dwellings.  Next comes the 'Shgiow Us Your Nukes' vote at that venerable institution.  And again, by a vast margin, the United naytions passes a resolution calling on Israel to come clean on its dirty nukes.   Next?

No where else to go but up!  Israel is accused of War Crimes.  And on that note, I sign out...just too many to enumerate.

Black Friday, Indeed...

In Gaza, every Friday is Black. The funeral march has no foreseeable end. But it definitely has a beginning.

And Yes, Virginia:  there is difference between the role of the souldless soldier, firing at human beings stripped of their humanity in the eye of the gun.  There is a difference when the aggressor has a home to return to and the target has no where to run.

Even before these latest Israeli atrocities, Gazans were suffering att he hands of their tormentors.  Packed into a tiny strip of territory and forbidden the most basic necessities:  building mateials, food, water, medicine...they survived.

If a foreign country had done to America what Walmart has, it would be considered an act of war.

Peace is a Message in a Bottle

Truce with Israel? Think about the image of a small boy sitting beside his dead mother, waiting for her to wake up...Think about it...

Think about a school bus full of children, charred, still smoking. 

Think about an old woman alone in the ruins.  Her home reduced to the dirt beneath her feet.

Think about Netanyahu in DC agreeing to a moratorium on  settlements while back in Occupied Palestine more land is bulldozed, more settlements built.

Think about a Wall sepatating a farmer from his land.

Think about the farmer's son gunned down by the IDF for playing ball too close to the Wall...

Think about families rendered homeless in their homeland...

Think about Coca Cola in Gaza: a mesage in a bottle.

“I and the public know
What all schoolchildren learn,
Those to whom evil is done
Do evil in return.”
W.H. Auden, Collected Poems

The Zionists do not want you to read about that, they do not want you to hear and see the crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinian people in different parts of occupied Palestine, especially in the besieged and improvised Gaza Strip.
The war, and the cyber war, goes on and we will continue our coverage of the news, we will resist, and we will continue to refuse to be silenced.
Silence is complicity, as the illegal war against the children of Gaza continues, the illegal cyber war continues, and the IMEMC will never be silenced.
Every time there is an Israeli military escalation on Gaza, cyber-attacks against the IMEMC intensify, and our determination grows stronger.

Cascadia Incandescent:

While the rest of the world goes off it’s beezer and rolls in the blood of baby corn, Meanwhile, back in Court…Sierra Club and Columbia Riverkeeper, Citizens Against LNG, and the American Public Gas Association have filed comments with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

This is what protest looks like:  No the application filed by LNG Development Company, LLC (d/b/a Oregon LNG) to export LNG.  Issues raised in the comments include potential environmental damage resulting from increased hydraulic fracturing and higher natural gas prices to American consumers that could result from approval of the proposal. The filings are available on DOE's website under Docket No. 12-77-LNG.

And It Just Desn't Smell Like News If The Police Aren't Involved....

Not only do the Portland police want the right to shield their own from the consequences of their own crimes against the people they are paid to serve and protect, now they also want to overturn the will of voters in the community that pays them to serve and protect.

The Portland police union is challenging reforms voters overwhelmingly approved this month to the Portland Fire and Police Disability and Retirement Fund. The reforms are expected to save taxpayers $47 million over 25 years.

This week Portland Police Association filed a grievance with city officials to block the reforms from taking effect. The union contends the city failed to negotiate changes that will affect members' pension and disability benefits.

And as if that wasn't enough, the union wants the city to restore past practice and make its approximately 950 members "whole in all ways, plus interest."

City Commissioner Dan Saltzman called the union's move disturbing. He said he wants the city to pursue a state legislative change that would insulate the public safety pension and disablity fund, as well as the city's general fund, from such challenges.

"As far as I'm concerned, nothing is going to stop the reforms from taking effect," Saltzman said. "It's pretty outrageous that the police association files a grievance to block what voters overwhelmingly approved -- that they don't feel honor-bound to the will of the voters."

Portland police Officer Daryl Turner, president of the Portland Police Association, filed the grievance on Tuesday, one week after 75 percent of city voters approved the reform package.

Comments

membership means more

your threat of quitting your membership gives me two options for analysis:

1) you gave money to Theresa via KBOO.

2) if Theresa died tomorrow, you'd give up your membership.

my interpretation

1) that's cool, man.  you support community-based radio based solely on your dedication to one weekly half-hour show. that demonstrates that Theresa's voice represents/intrigues you (and many, many others); however you don't feel represented by any one of the other 500 people who volunteer their time and energy in the 24/7 endevour, and you don't value the input (and miraculous existence!) of the other 5-10,000 members and ten times as many listeners; neither do you support the KBOO mission of including as many underrepresented voices as possible on the air, with natural turnover, schedule changes and opportunities as new people arrive.  Membership gives you the power to affect the decision-making, which is why you gave money to Theresa via KBOO; and, by golly, you will do everything in your power to keep her on the air, and you want the KBOO website visitors to know how you feel when they read the comments.  You'd even like them to join you in your fight.

2) wow.

my opinion

Personally, Theresa's show is one of my  favourites and there are plenty of shows that I not only don't like or don't listen to, but also complain about out loud.  It's my radio station, and, like my family, I will not be quiet when they need to shape up or ship out.

writing inflammatory statements on the webpage will remain simply that: inflammatory statements with a reaction or two from trolls (see the 20 pages of Anonymous written about me because of the audio I submitted that Jenka edited), which, in the end, result in: NOTHING.  If you want to chat with others online, that's fine, but you should know that nothing said here is considered in the Committee meetings. It's just an informal public forum, not policy binding.

my advice

Instead of threatening us (volunteers, members, listeners and our very existence), why not use your valuable internet time to phrase it as, for example, a question to which one of us could easily respond:  "Have there been any changes to Theresa's show?  I noticed lately that it has been preemented or even cut.  It is my favourite show. [I fear Air Cascadia will take its place--not necessary but very telling that you chose Chris' page to write it--ed.]. "  You can copy the question to Theresa's email (though I know from experience she doesn't respond) and/or print it out and put it in her cubby hole at the station. And/or show up to the meetings.  And/or call Theresa during her show--she takes calls, you know.  Ask her if she'll train or mentor you to do the same kind of work she does.

p.s.  Air Cascadia basically is the AM News is Chris Andreae: i was engineering {i'm flattered that you liked it}and was very sad when it was cut--but that is the way of the station; we adhere and adapt to the ever-fluctuating needs of the larger community--but i watched, with great pleasure, as it morphed into Air Cascadia.  Though i adore Dennis Bernstein, 15 less minutes of his voice is no skin off my back. 

Highting!

The anchor news program

The anchor news program Democracy Now, conveiniently aired at 11 AM so that all could tune in was moved to 7 AM with a result that most if not all of the people who work nights won't be tuning in as they are still sleeping. Also missed the 40th anniversary bash as it was inconveinently held from 4 to 10 Pm, on a weekday, which would exclude anyone working swing from attending unless they took a day off. Why couldn't this have been held on a Saturday or Sunday?
Air Cascadia is a very rough and unpolished program that leaves me tuning to OPB or just turning it off.
The choppy, emergent voice of Cris Andreae is certainly a large part in that.
If it is true that Press Watch will be axed for this then it will be an easy decision to withhold future pledges from this listener.

What happened to Presswatch?

Is Air Cascadia taking over what Therisa has been doing? If so, I may give up my membership. First, the am news gets axed to accomodate Democracy Now, now is Presswatch going under the plow?
