These deer were doomed to certain death at the early age of 18 months at the hand of owner Gerd Konieczny, a former butcher and LA cop who raises the deer for profit and fun, by his own admission.

FBI Agent offers weak justification for Portland's JTTF participation
At some point in the near future, the Portland City Council will vote as to whether or not Portland will continue its participation with the Joint Terrorism Task Force. The vote, which is supposed to occur every year, has been delayed several times already, and is long overdue. The repeated delays have prompted speculation that the FBI is afraid the vote will not pass, and is trying to stall for time while it frantically tries to build support.

Bake sale for Tre Arrow Legal Defense a delicious success!
The weekly Farmers' Market at People's Food Co-op was blessed with a delicious addition this last Wednesday: a bake sale of vegan goodies to raise funds for Tre Arrow's legal defense. Tre was a well known person around the Co-op back when he lived in this part of Cascadia, and support for him was strong at this event. Lots of folks stopped by to have a cookie and leave some money in the donation jar. The weather was just gorgeous (being unseasonably warm and sunny, which is maybe a little spooky -- global warming?) and organizers declared the event a resounding success.

Report-backs from January 20 Inauguration actions
Well, they brought it out again last night. The infamous ice cream truck. After herding people (with a fucking permit no less) to the deserted backwoods of town -- across from the federal building -- they hauled out their funky truck and demanded in a creepy stepford-like politeness that everyone leave. While the truck hovered above the crowd in the background, heavily armed riot cops brandished weapons at us in the foreground.

Sami in Palestine: Home
Well, Folks, Thats it. I am back in the ol' USA. I am not sure if I can give any valuable insight at this point, I am just trying to readjust to this place, to calm the nagging voice that keeps telling me I should have stayed. Anyway, here I am, safe and sound, back where I started from. If anyone wants to arrange an event or a speaking engagement, just get a hold of me. Until then, whereever you are, keep working for justice, and take care of yourselves.
