Protesting Sea World at the Rose Parade (tags)
Many were appalled by Sea World's float--a fantastical depiction of its orcas swimming freely--in the 2014 Rose Parade, especially in the aftermath of the movie Blackfish. Thus, as in recent years, the Rose Parade became a target of protest.
Demonstration in front of Disneyland (tags)
Demonstrations at Disneyland, the most powerful economic force in Anaheim, occurred both Saturday and Sunday, with a turnout ranging from 10 to 15 on the latter. Another couple hundred people were en route to join us (having just demonstrated outside the police headquarters) but were barred by police (as organizers learned via cell phone communications).
Rights of Bicyclists on U.S. Interstates in California and Beyond (tags)
Bicycles have the same rights to public roadways as do motor vehicles, and bicycles should be allowed anywhere on the U.S. interstate system if they so choose. Preventing bicyclists from using the interstate system safely and at their own discretion by issuing outrageous tickets ($200.00) violates the U.S. Constitution right to unrestricted travel.
Retenes 4 de julio 2011 / July 4 weekend checkpoints (tags)
Cada 4 de julio, cuando el gringo celebra su conquista de estas tierras, tambi?n tiene su manera de recordarnos quien no somos "americanos": pobres, migrantes, latinxs, afroamericanxs, descapacitadxs, j?venes, la comunidad LGBT. Una de sus t?cticas es el ret?n, una violaci?n del derecho individual, y que tiene como finalidad el objetivo de encajarle a uno en una categor?a. Sigamos resistiendo.
Every July 4, the descendents of the settlers who appropriated these lands and the oppressed they have assimilated celebrate that conquest. They always seem to set up checkpoints around this time, too, as if to remind us who is not "American": the poor, the migrant, the latino/a, the African-American, the disabled, the young, the LGBT community. This violation of basic dignity, like all forms of conquest, is an attempt to place people into a category and, if possible, commodify them. Keep up the resistance.
The Automobile Club of Southern California also is offering its free "Tipsy Tow" service from 6 p.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Monday. People who have been drinking can get a free one-way tow and ride home for up to 7 miles by calling 800-400-4AAA.
NV; Fatality from Ruby Pipeline Construction (tags)
El Paso corporation's rush to complete the Ruby Pipeline in northern Nevada resulted in a worker's fatality as safety procedures were skipped and work continued despite the frigid temps and icy surfaces. The time required to complete this project is being shortened by the corporate profit motive, and the human nature to make serious mistakes is increased as workers grow weary from long hours and colder temperatures.

Video: Free Gaza Protest (tags)
LOS ANGELES, January 10, 2009 – An estimated 2,000 plus people marched through Westwood to protest the continuing Israeli invasion of Gaza. Marchers were lead by organizers working with police on a pre arranged march route. Any deviation from the set march route was not allowed. Police and organizers kept a tight lock on the marchers and lead them around in a circle through Westwood village. Much like the siege of Gaza itself police and the organizers deployed outrageously disproportional show of forces.

The Hague: Israel Wall Violates International Law, Must Be Dismantled (tags)
13 out of 14 of the justices believed that in building the fence, Israel violated international humanitarian law, by infringing on Palestinians' freedom of movement, freedom to seek employment, education and health. Israel violated international treaties it had signed which deal with these topics, the ruling states.
Ambassador of Death, Right-Wing Death Squads, Drug Smuggling: George Bush's Plan for Iraq. (tags)
Right wing death squads and a hub for drug smuggling is Bush's vision of democracy in Iraq all orchestrated by the ambassador of death, Negroponte. The old Iran Contra gang are all in place once again ready to flood the streets of America and Europe with cheap heroin from Afghanistan. The Bush administration's reluctance to hand Saddam over to the interim government of Iraq maybe based not on a fear of Saddam's military capabilities but on a fear of him telling what he knows about drug smuggling.

Invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq are preparation for invasion of Iran. (tags)
The ultimate purpose for the invasion of Iraq is not Iraq or Iraq's oil. There is ample evidence, from sources available to the public, to indicate that Iraq is not the real goal. Like Afghanistan, Iraq is being taken in preparation for the invasion of Iran.

Moscow Gas Deaths - Why is the media trying so hard to mislead us? (tags)
We're being bombarded in every newspaper and TV report with "expert opinions" that the gas responsible for 116 hostage deaths in Moscow was an agent known as BZ. However, there are clear and obvious reasons why it could NOT have been BZ. A brief internet search would have elicited this information. Why are they conducting such a well-coordinated misinformation campaign?
