Portland bike evangelist Reverend Phil was tasered by Portland police.

According to eyewitnesses, at around 10 o'clock PM, a police officer pulled over bicyclist Diana at Southeast Seventh and Morrison to issue her a citation for not having a bike light.

While the officer was writing the ticket, Reverend Phil came riding down the street, also without a light on his bicycle.

The officer then allegedly tackled Reverend Phil, pinned him against the wall, and tasered him multiple times.

A Portland Police spokesman stated that the Bicyclist ignored the officer's demand to stop, and was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and attempt to escape.

Reverend Phil is well known in the zoo-bomb biker community, which hosts weekly bike rides from the zoo to downtown Portland.
 KBOO's Jenka Soderberg spoke with Diana, who witnessed the tasering of the cyclist:

Cuba Authorizes Sex-Change Operations

Cuba has authorized
Sex-Change Operations for Transsexual citizens. 

KBOO’s Jacob Anderson-Minshall has more on the
story.

  

The Associated Press reported Monday that Cuba has
official authorized gender-reassignment operations and will offer them free to
qualifying citizens.

The move—one of the latest
in a series of changes implemented by President Raul Castro since he succeeded
his elder brother, Fidel—puts Cuba above any US state in providing affordable
access to gender reassignment surgery.

When Raul Castro took over
in February, his daughter, Mariela, who heads Cuba's National Center for Sex
Education, called for LGBT civil rights and legalization of gender reassignment
surgery.

A resolution approving the
surgery, signed by Cuba’s Health Minister, Jose Ramon Balaguer, was posted on
the Internet over the weekend.  The
procedure would be available to authorized Cubans free of charge, as part of
the country's health-care system.

The island nation’s sex
education center reported previously that 28 transsexual Cubans have asked to
undergo gender reassignment and that Cuban doctors have been trained with
physicians from Belgium to prepare for the procedures, which will take place at
a soon to be established clinic for transsexual health.  it is not clear when it the operations may begin.

Cuba carried out a
successful gender-reassignment operation in 1988, but future surgeries were
canceled when it sparked a negative public outcry.

Freedom of Speech Victory: Bonnie Tinker Speaks

 Supporters of “The Seriously Pissed-off Grannies” have cause to celebrate today. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">

One year after locking themselves to a World War 2 tank in last year's Rose Festival Parade, Grannies Sara Graham and Bonnie Tinker, had the charges against them dismissed.

The case was dismissed because the District Attorney’s office had scheduled the police to appear to testify on the wrong day.

 

Tinker and Graham were originally charges with interfering with a parade.

When it was discovered that evidently there is no law against “interfering with a parade”, the charges were changed to “disorderly conduct in the second degree”.

 

The two activists would have testified that their actions were directly tied to freedom of speech.

Graham said that after unsuccessfully trying to persuade the Rose Festival not to include a tank, she felt she had no alternative but to protest.
