COTTON DAY

August 9th


On August 9, 2007, Eureka police officers Justin Winkle, Adam Laird, Gary Whitmer, and 5 others beat an unarmed Martin Cotton II to death. In broad daylight, officers pummeled Martin's head and body, then brought Martin to jail, never giving him medical treatment. Medical care could have saved his life. Martin died in the jail cell of blunt force head trauma, writhing in pain, within two hours.

Sept 17th Behind the Redwood Curtain: Remember David Nathan "Gypsy" Chain

 On September 17, 1998, Gypsy was killed in the Grizzly Creek area, trying to prevent the clearcut destruction of the ancient forests by Pacific Lumber Company.  After years of Corporate Timber fomenting hate and fear toward environmentalists  - encouraging its workers and managers to feel justified using violence against Earth First!ers (violence often exceeded by the cops and and sanctioned by the DA)- a Pacific Lumber employee felled a tree on Gypsy.

Those Who Ignore the Past Are Bound to REPEAT IT -from PEOPLE PROJECT blog

This is from a July 6, 2005 PLAZOID. The Plazoid was a brilliant independent, self-published pamphlet/zine that circulated in Arcata in the mid 2000's.

 

SOON Nazi authorities and the police began to consign members of other groups to the new camps: homosexual men arrested as criminal offenders; Jehovah's Witnesses who refused to obey demands to cease their activities; women accused of prostitution; people labeled "asocial" because they were homeless, begged, or for some other reason did not fit into Nazi society.

 

U.S. Soldier Imprisoned for Releasing Video Of U.S. Military Slaying of Iraqi Civilians: VIDEO & PETITION included

Bradley Manning is the U.S. soldier now in a US military prison in Kuwait who has been arrested and charged with two violations for releasing classified information (the Wikileaks "Collateral Murder" video) and facing 54 years in prison. He is being held in isolation from the outside world - with no contact with his civilian attorneys working to defend him.

If the allegations are true, Bradley Manning is a hero for bringing to light the realities of the crimes being committed in the U.S. occupation.

We call for his immediate release and that his attorneys be allowed to talk to him.
