Hanson Concrete ( http://hansonpipeandprecast.com) is a subcontractor of UC Berkeley's Li Ka-Shing Center for Biomedical and Health Sciences at University Avenue and Oxford Way - which would provide a 70 percent expansion of the CAL's current Northwest Animal Facility. Tens of thousands of animals will suffer and die each year in the basement of the Li Ka-Shing Center for Biomedical and Health Sciences.
Hanson has contacts all over the country. Please let them know that assisting in construction of a facility that will include basement-level animal torture facilities is unacceptable.
Instead of dumping the entire nation's nuclear waste pile underneath seismically active Yucca Mountain, why not use the already constructed tunnels as a (non-GMO) seed bank and emergency food storage repository??
Absurd sentences given to Earth First!ers in Palm Beach County for misdemeanors. Please support them.
The Liquefied Natural Gas Palomar Pipeline proposal is illegal. For it to cross Mt. Hood National Forest it would break some of the most important environmental rules we have protecting our forests and watersheds.
(below are lessons taken from a successful union organizing campaign in 1997)
1) Be the best worker at your workplace
If you are to influence your co-workers to join a union, you'd better already have their respect at work. This doesn't mean that you must be the absolute best, but that you are a leader and rank among one of the best. This first step is the all-important foundation for your effort, directly or indirectly affecting EVERY other step toward forming a union.
It helps also to be the best liked co-worker. Not that you need to be prom-king/queen popular, but that you are easily approachable, social, and generally kind. In being so, you'll make your job of talking with your co-workers about a union - which constitutes 95% of the work of organizing — MUCH easier. If your trust is earned as a good worker and friend, you can better expect that your ideas will be not only better received, but kept away from management during the initial stage of secrecy.

Fresh Hopes for Activists in New President's Willingness to Look at the Health Realities.
"Fierce and uncompromising, his words were as free of soft sentiment as the hard financial and military crises that await him. His message to the hundreds of millions listening on Tuesday were like those of a stern but loving parent to a wayward child.."
Land rights are human rights--though we know little of that here in the USA. Please spread the following information widely!
In part to advertise the Economic Town Hall which took place today, January 31, 20079, I was fortunate to bring one of the Plenary speakers on the Public Access program, "A Growing Concern," on the evening before.
Hunters using dog packs to pursue and kill foxes and coyotes in New York State are accused of using trapped animals to train their hounds to kill.
According to a communiqué issued by his support organization, he has been released into the general population at USP Lewisburg, and welcomed back not only by brothers but by all of the prisoners

Here are straight facts but the guilty genocidal monsters who are home well and fine drinkming beer and raping children. We have to go after them because nothing will erase our collective guilt if we do not insist on jailing the top 25 Bush demons.
The economic news caused most people to forget about Iraq.
I'm afraid the Obama coronation has caused the rest of us to forget.
Blago's Real Crime: Threat of State Boycott of Bank in Defense of Illinois Workers
"(W)hat came out of the House is not only a huge investment in our infrastructure, a huge investment in energy, we're talking about billions of dollars are going to protect our most vulnerable Americans, significant increase in food stamps and other programs.."
This is the worst (non-meat)sanitation report I've read in a long time:

Key Documents in the Tacoma PD/ICE Spy Scandal Are now Available
This is a retrospective look on volunteering at the Common Ground Collective in New Orleans from December 11th, 2006 to January 3rd, 2007, and then later from mid-February to mid-March '07, under FBI-informant Brandon Darby's new hierarchy. How did he change things, and how could his involvement with federal agents have affected the group?
Some conservative commentators have tried to parallel the odd arrest of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Dec. 9, 2008, and the indictment of I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff, on Oct. 28, 2005. There may be turn out to be similarities between the two legal matters, both prosecuted by Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, but there is little similarity in the treatment of the two men. To argue that Libby and Blagojevich were treated alike is false.
With less than 10 days in office, President Barack Obama has indicated that his $825 billion economic stimulus package will energize the U.S. economy and create future jobs for more than three million Americans. Socialists nationwide are rejecting this new call for deficit spending and are calling for programs that will meet the short and long term needs of the nation and create immediate employment for the millions of working people that are unemployed or under-employed.
Obama is lockstep with the Bush Administration's 9/11 narrative. The "War on Terror" will continue full steam ahead.
As the U.S. government fired upon alleged terrorists in the rugged outback of Pakistan, Obama was back in Washington appointing Richard Holbrooke as a special U.S. representative to Pakistan and Afghanistan. Unfortunately, like the remote control bombing that claimed human life, Obama's vision for the region, in the embodiment of Holbrooke, may not be a drastic departure from the failed Bush doctrine. Or a departure at all.
On January 22, 2009, President Obama signed a number of executive orders purporting to end the Bush administration's abusive practices in dealing with treatment of terrorism suspects. Before Americans get too elated, however, they should look carefully at the inhumane interrogation practices these orders may still permit.
No Slammer for Us Again
Tens of thousands will be laid off in non-financial sectors, less than a week into Obama's presidency
"My administration will not deny facts; we will be guided by them." -President Obama
Alex Jones The Obama Deception will be the first hard-hitting film to expose Obama, his agenda & handlers cutting through all the media hype, side-issues and Left/Right rhetoric. Alex has made several films exposing the Bush agenda and will approach the Obama Administrations plans from the same non-partisan point of view looking past the frontman in the White House to the real owners on Wall Street, in the Bilderberg group and at the Federal Reserve.
Please help spread the word about this powerful new film. Make sure everyone you know whether they claim to be a Democrat, Republican, independent or none of the above sees this film before it is too late.
2 you tube clips with Obama speaking and a short post about a medical marijuana raid in South Lake Tahoe, Calif
When it comes to foreign policy it turns out that Obama is as big a bimbo as Bill Clinton was.
Pete Seeger led the group of many in a highly controversial version of Woodie Guthrie's song "This land is your land" the real version- which includes verses about oppression in our land. It was broadcast on HBO who tried to surpress the showing of it on the internet and demanded that the video be taken down off of YouTube. German TV also broadcast the performance and has now put it back up on Youtube. Power to the people! Power to the songsters and the minstrels!
Pass it around!
In the "Creole trick," the perpetrator pretends to be the victim. Cheney sits in a wheelchair and the war profiteering is repressed. The $3 trillion war (cf. Joseph Stiglitz' book) is a theft of the present and the future that reduced American stature to a rogue state.

The New York Times recently posed an excellent question: "Why save banks if they won't lend?" (January 19, 2009)
Before the first $350 billion "installment" of the bailout, we were told that the money was needed to "unfreeze" the credit markets, meaning that banks would again be willing to lend businesses the money they needed to continue doing business.
Despite hugely popular opposition, the bailout proceeded, and absolutely nothing changed.
My daughter and I traveled to Washington, D.C. to see the inauguration with the Martin Luther King Jr Commission from the State of Arkansas.
The travel involved a grueling 22 hour bus ride with three driver changes and a host of challenges involving security, changing guidance and massive crowds.
I will never be the same because of my experience. My words would just be another trite effort at describing how I felt, how I feel now, and what I experienced, but on the bus I met a young man, his two brothers and his Mother.
What follows are the words of youngster and I think sum up everything I felt. Please share his words with your friends and wait for the follow-up piece describing his feelings after the inauguration.
So James, as promised:
he entire book is thus both an Orwellian suppression of these relevant and important historical events, and an implicit validation and approval of the similar suppressions that preceded it and made it possible
The deficit that doubled in eight years could shoot up again without restructuring and expanding the public sector not ruled by profit. The government must create jobs since private firms will speculate, buy out other firms and not create jobs until demand returns.
On Wednesday, January 21, 2009 at the State Capitol, the 8-month-long Campaign to Keep Oregon's Guard in Oregon held its official "launch event." Campaign organizers delivered the signatures of over 7000 Oregonians to officials along with a demand that our state militia not be sent to Iraq or Afghanistan.

"Practices of unscrupulous moneychangers have been condemned in the marketplace of the public..When there is no vision, the people perish..Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money but in fulfillment..This nation is asking for action now.."
We feel that prison authorities at the prompting of the FBI orchestrated this attack and thus, we are greatly concerned about his safety.It may be that the attackers, whom Leonard did not even know, were offered reduced sentences for carrying out this heinous assault. Since Leonard is up for parole soon, this could be a conspiracy to discredit a model prisoner.
Sithe Global & DPA are proposing to build the Desert Rock power plant, a 1,500 MW Coal Fired plant in the Four Corners area on the Navajo Reservation. This is an area already polluted by 2 other major coal power plants. Local Navajo residence and community members oppose this project for many harmful reasons!! This Desert Rock power plant is still in the environmental review process and has NOT yet been permitted.
just wanted to hail farewell (and good riddance) to America's biggest liar and thief
Two people, Karen Meissner and Christina Vana, from Milwaukee are facing new felony charges, specifically aiding and abetting second degree assault, for allegedly throwing a street sign off of a bridge and almost hitting a police officer during the Republican National Convention last September.
They turned themselves into Ramsey county police custody today and their bail was subsequently set at $30,000 each.
MONEY IS VERY URGENTLY NEEDED FOR THEIR LEGAL SUPPORT!
A letter I wrote to the FBI and their response letter
Linked in this article, is the correct link to the Washington Post article of the same name. What I have done is a direct cheapshot at Obama for the purpose of illuminating the fact that there is little to no difference between him and Bush. This is sadly going to be good sport for the days ahead. You can read the real WP story, link to www.cbsnews.com
