I have a problem with a neighbor who has some threatening and psychotic behavior. I believe he has been arrested a number of times and may have spent jail time.
Looking for films.
I'm just having what seems like a weirdly hard time finding any radical trans & genderqueer groups in Portland...
Where are all the anarchists in Portland at?
I am research and seeking information regarding the needs of senior citizens and low income people who are in need of assistance in caring for their companion animals.
Can't find any on LA indymedia.
My ex-vegan best friend stopped talking to me and called me his enemy, because I used words like "enslavement" and "holocaust" to describe the suffering and abuse of animals. He calls this ad hominem attacks, and says my use of those words make him prefer to go out and eat meat, rather than become a vegan again. When I sent video links of animal torture and explained that "enslavement" and "holocaust" are not metaphors and not exclusively used to describe historical events involving humans, he threatened to call the cops on me. I am so sad. I am not a descendant of people who died in the nazi holocaust, nor do I know of any ancestors of mine who were enslaved in the south, so I don't use these words publicly. However, the definition of these words clearly fits animal torture and death too, not just those aforementioned historical events. I have been raped and sexually assaulted though, so publicly I do feel comfortable comparing the forced impregnation of breeding animals and the manhandling of cow breasts for the dairy industry to rape and sexual assault. My ex vegan friend is also highly offended at this, and gave me an ultimatum-- either change my mind of this issue, or I would lose him as a friend forever. It was impossible for me to change my mind, so he stopped talking to me! I am so sad. What can I do?

Your ideas on how to help US's latest political prisoner
I've heard about a lot of controversy going on at KBOO over the past few years. Some of it sounds pretty serious, and I'm particularly concerned about what I've heard about their blocking of democratic processes, and member participation. what has everyone else heard....and what do you all think about it? What should we do about it?
And Why doesn't anybody except for a small community ask these questions with intent to actually answer them?
Do you know anything about section 8 voucher rules/policy?
Does any one know if this is happening in Portland?
Its tempting to give wild reasons, but I really don't know why?
The press release is vague.
The USSF is approaching, and I'd like to figure out an alternative way to get there. Maybe even a few people to fundraise with! The Cascadia Caravan is doing it's thing, but leaving too early for me, since they're attending the Allied Media Conference. I'd like to start a thread for those TRULY interested in making this happen, with the means and drive to get us there!
We have to do something to hold BP accountable for what's turning into the worst oil spill of all time! This is just a first step--and it's not like there's a good oil company--but I just signed a pledge to boycott BP for three months. You can join the boycott at www.BeyondBP.org and make at least a dent in the profits of at least one negligent corporation. My physical, economic, and mental/moral health depends upon maintaining my integrity and holding accountable those who otherwise would kill more people and ecosystems. In the west, BP is sold as Arco gas stations. BP also profits from the war against Iraqis and US taxpayers, the sale of plastics, Air BP ARCO Aluminum, Aromatics & Acetyls, Asphalt and bitumen. I boycott them when instead of using plastics, and other products sold by or using BP oil, I use glass or bulk, local, bike, foot, etc. I boycott BP when I don't use their toxic chemicals on my lawn or garden or in my home. Please post BP affiliates and products.
Hey y'all ... has anybody noticed? There are lotsa empty houses all over the place!
Is there currently any legal / material / organizational support being offered for squatters here in Portland? Are there any eviction defense networks going?
Can we get something together to start a community dialogue about this fucked up situation.
Just another day at the office
Many of us are experiencing strange physical, psychological and sleep symptoms that are new. We go to our doctors and they don't know what to say and tell us it is psychological or stress related. Possibly 35% of the population may be electrosensitive and it is projected that perhaps 50% will be by 2017. Nothing will be done until people begin dropping in the streets. Europe recognizes electrosensitivity as a condition. Of course the U.S. as usual remains in the dark.
Just a question about the discrimination between sentient and non-sentient beings.
Historically May Day celebrated a hopeful new beginning then... labor activists who were killed in the US, and how locally and globally we can defend our rights as workers, consumers, down-winders/down-streamers, patients, tax-payers. ... Then how all our causes are connected.... Then our collect resistance and alternatives to police brutality and fascism. Nationwide protests were planned before the Arizona anti-Latinos law, for Sat., May 1, 2010 in solidarity against attacks on low-income workers and targeted middle income workers, workers denied papers, workers easily exploited because of racism, Latinos, and the poor... all to inflame and distract voters in a divide-conquer excuse for a worsened police state and to pressure Mexico to let the USA control their oil and security. These anti-Hispanic and anti-Asian and anti-Muslim policies allow mercenaries, police, and prisons practice for rounding up and imprisoning most of our population. As the most people lie to themselves that this is not a problem or is actually a solution, or at least is not relevant or solvable, they/we allow ourselves to be the next victims. The more money spent on fascism, the less money available for safe clean water, clean air, safe affordable housing, good jobs, good schools, good health care for all, good self-government, and holding corporations and multi-millionaire or billionaire criminals accountable. So what is planned for Portland in a few days? Who, what, when, where, with what support and solidarity?
a sort of informal poll....
Has the queer community been targeted by neo-nazis of Portland?
scorecard.org lets you enter your zip code and gives you environmental/pollution information.
There is a wealth of information and media on this site that is seldom found elsewhere. Many times Portland Indymedia has been the only open website hosting pictures and fliers from the community at large about local issues. Yet it the little over two years Ive been here its very often the media uploaded by contributors is lost by the content management system utilized by Portland IMC. Its a shame that this media is reduced to a grainy thumbnails and the originals are unavailable (The connection is terminated server-side).
Please email the mayor, city auditor, and city commissioners your criteria for any redevelopment of the area now where Memorial Coliseum is, versus the Blazers Corporation plan. WHAT DO YOU WANT? Diverse cultural gathering and arts, town-hall meetings, eco green and sustainability projects with roof/wall/ground/pot plantings for food/fuel/fiber/pollution control, political free speech and displays, 24/7 free public eco restrooms and showers, earthquake-safe building and post-earthquake survival community areas with water and food, free transit, cop-free self-government, chickens in the city, what would seem ideal to you??
What is the reason that names I would expect to see in my sender column are matched with a subject line I would expect with the sender below that, and the content is entirely different from those two, including senders and content I have never dealt with before and would have spammed? What happened to the actual messages sent me? What can I do to protect my inbox, my contents, and the people emailing me or intended to receive my emails? Is this related to Yahoo problems in China, Australia, Japan.... and with those who have been visiting sites warning of HAARP use timed with conveniently-timed earthquakes when nuclear materials and military base negotiations were breaking down and military drills that exactly match the same location/time live events? Or meaningless coincidence? This email address was not used for those research investigations, nor for spreading that info. What are wisest options?

Channel 8 news wants your opinion on the recent anti-police demos. Fowarded by PSU SFU.
I went to WTO / some Maydays / M8 and several other actions before I got outrage fatigue and kind of wandered away. Back then, I couldn't get arrested because I needed a clear criminal history for my chosen trade. I have since started a successful and ethical business and wonder if I can get arrested now or if I would be especially picked on because of my status.

Today, when trying to open Yahoo! mail, as I do several times a day, unexpectedly Firefox warned me it was not a secure sight, might have someone falsely impersonating the site, and when I checked the certificate, Yahoo! log-in was owned by Equifax, which sells information on customers' income, credit, purchases, employment, travel/location of purchases, banks, addresses, etc. Then I found a website with Yahoo! Finance Equifax as if bragging to purchasers of surveillance data/intelligence all the many things they know about the targets.
I saved a few kiddie bikes from the trash a year or so ago...
Offensive enough in his current incantation, a friend of mine who went to PSU in the early 00s says back then he incited someone by calling them the n word then used his infant daughter as a shield, openly called any passerby showing knee a whore and told them to find husbands to submit to and claimed to be completely without sin. I'm annoyed enough by his recent appearances at PSU and concerned for what few souls seem interested in what he is saying, but even more so after finding out what he USED to be like. Anyone have more insight on the early 00s version of this man?
Who composted the Compost Bin?
It was proven that those that had nothing could have less on Tuesday January 12th.The earthquake in Haiti devastated the little reconstruction that was done by the U.N. forces which are still controlled by the regional power with global intentions: Brazil.

he US and many countries around the world are examining how to deal with erotic entertainment. Although there are tens of thousands of arrests in the US each year for erotic entertainment and related crimes, in 11 Nevada counties erotic entertainment is legal. Because this polarizing issue is debated in universities, legislatures, newspapers, and elsewhere, and given its public policy implications, we thought the issue was ripe for our nonpartisan pro-con examination.
where it might have more serious impact than mere posturing
at downtown venues before historically indifferent leader's
and jaded-bureaucrat's, who've seen it all before and yet, do
nothing constructive about CHANGE.
Please immediately post inspiring, constructive movie/book pairs on how to resist social control/mind control in an increasingly fascist world that my sensitive, already-politically savvy daughter can propose to her high school teacher as an alternative to depressing, cynical, violent ones that teach insensitivity and learned helplessness. She is highly sensitive to violence. She knows deeper foreboding analyses of current events and history, and evil plans for our future. She already knows more than most adults about problems; she needs uplifting solutions and images that will sustain her under oppression while under persecution and privation, when she seems to be the only one speaking out. She needs to learn how to stay alive when she would be one of the first targeted for her leadership and moral courage, and how to keep her hope/faith, her inner joy, her effective clarity.
since it's so obvious that the PPB is into massive cover-up
as to what's really going on with these citizen-killings as
they collectively rally around the killer-kop and treat the
dude ((no female cops have yet killed a citizen here that I
know of...??)) as an "innocent victim" that just "had to kill
the poor soul that got the bullet", etc. etc.
Recently the US ambassador to Bulgaria, James B. Warlick in an article published in the bulgarian daily newspaper "Today", said: "I am talking about the food based on the modern biotechnolgy. These foods are the same safe high quality products that americans eat every day in the last 13 years. These foods never had any negative effects on the americans' health. And this is perheps well known. That these biotechnology products are safe is beyond any doubt. This had been confirmed by numerous investigations and articles performed and published in the USA and in the world, including the European Commission and the World Health Organization."

What do folks think about the use of violence as a tactic? Seems that over in Greece the Anarchist movement is pretty successful, the closest thing to revolution in the West I have ever seen. There not afraid to use violence against a repressive murderous state so why are we?
