Dennis Mahon and auntie racist

From the open publishing newswire: Federal prisoner Dennis Mahon and Auntie Racist writings on free speech, resistance and the consequences thereof. This ain't heaven, this is America. We're not equal, we're not free and we're not happy. Yes we believe in the value of those things, but we haven't got there yet.

We all have our freedom of speech and assembly and the right to bear arms and all that. But it's not free. In order to keep even the right to continue seeking them we have to beat down our enemies, the government and our own greed and bad habits of thinking. [...]


I have stopped writing under the name Auntie Racist. A lot of my writings are still out there in cyberspace, but they are in general out dated. I will include some of them on this site, or links to some. I got into resistance and protest because I wanted to make the world a decent place for my children to live. Sadly they grew up before I was finished. [...]

U.S. flags burned in downtown Portland during Fourth of July firework display

From the open publishing newswire: Here are a few pics of last night's Waterfront fight for the flag. Several flags were captured before a flag was eventually burned. One of the people trying to stop the flag burning apparently got clubbed with a flashlight, resulting in a bloody mess on his face. Multiple people were pepper-sprayed by the flag burners. I was hit by the pepper-spray but not directly (thank goodness! Although my eyes were burning bad for awhile).

Rally to protest the slaughter of cormorants!

From the open publishing newswire: This week, Federal Courts confirmed that the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers have failed once again to address the primary cause of salmon decline on the Columbia and Snake River system, which is the operation of the hydroelectric dam system.

Join us to rally and demand that the Corp, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S.D.A.'s Wildlife Services stop scapegoating cormorants to address salmon decline.
Already this year 1,494 cormorants have been killed, adding to the 2,346 adult cormorants and over 5,000 nests that were slaughtered last year. Help us stop the unnecessary slaughter now!

MAYDAY PDX 2016

From the open publishing newswire:

WHEN OUR HUMAN FAMILIES ARE UNDER ATTACK,
WHAT DO WE DO?
RISE UP! FIGHT BACK!


PORTLAND MAY DAY RALLY 2016
SHEMANSKI PARK, DOWNTOWN PORTLAND
12:00 - 2:00 PM : ASSEMBLY
2:00 - 4:00 PM : RALLY
[no march]

From the Philippines to Libya to the streets of the U.S., people are rising up against injustice. In response to this, the forces of global capitalism and imperialism are working overtime to pit the masses of people on the planet against one another. Racist police murders continue while the victims are painted as criminals and thugs. Families are deported daily and immigrants are dehumanized and labeled as terrorists. Working families find it increasingly impossible to make ends meet in the U.S., while workers around the world are struggling to stay alive. Meanwhile, corporate profits are setting records. [...]

Stu Sugarman ...a eulogy

From the open publishing newswire: I woke up this morning to find out that an old friend of mine, an earth warrior, an activist attorney, and a truly gentle soul... has died. This man saved many of our asses in the Pacific NW during the various waves of repression and Green Scare machinations that swept through Cascadia over the past 2 decades, and I will not forget him. I don't think any of us will. We thought he would be there forever. None of us was prepared for this, it was so sudden and unexpected.

Read this full eulogy by Cat Jones on her blog here:
 https://beyondthebarbs.wordpress.com/2016/03/30/stu-sugarman-a-eulogy/

Stu passed away in his home Monday of apparent diabetes-related causes. He was 52 years old.

A memorial service has been scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, March 31 at Laurelhurst Park, 3756 S.E. Oak St., in Portland. A group will gather north of the pond, at picnic area" E."
