LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND

After all, we may need some of it for that far future, if the human species lives that long.

STOP OLYMPIC FLYOVERS

TAKE ACTION AT THE WEB SITE POSTED BELOW 

Petitions with 120,000 signatures opposing the US Navy request to develop electromagnetic warfare in sites around the forests on the Olympic Peninsula were recently delivered to the Forest Service. This would mean periodic unannounced closures of portions of Olympic National Forest for war games, testing and training.  Up to 118 Growler jets flying over Olympic Peninsula communities 260 days/year, 8-16 hours/day, day or night, in 5,000 “events”/year. The Navy has not defined “event”.  Growlers fly in groups of three. This could mean 15,000 flights/year. Currently there are 1250 flights/year. The Navy must define “event”.   Growlers, the loudest Navy jet, can produce 150 db, enough to cause instantaneous hearing loss. Navy statistics say they produce 113 db at an altitude of 1000 feet, well above the 85 db threshold for permanent hearing loss. Growlers can fly at 1200 feet above ground level in some areas of the Olympic Peninsula. With three Growlers flying together, local noise levels will be worse. For more information see protectolympicpeninsula.org.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Alex Landau, an African American man, was raised by his adoptive white parents to believe that skin color didn’t matter. But when Alex was pulled over by Denver police officers one night in 2009, he lost his belief in a color-blind world—and nearly lost his life. Alex tells his mother, Patsy Hathaway, what happened that night and how it affects him to this day.

Could this happen in Bellingham?

THE FIGHT CONTINUES – STOP TPP

FlushTheTPP.org is an action campaign to Stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

OCCUPY BELLINGHAM joined this fight in December 2012 at the Peace Arch for a cross border rally.  We invite you to join.

At the Peace Arch Park – December 2012

occupy bannerTPP-BORDER RALLY

 

 

OCCUPY BELLINGHAM worked hard to prevent the passage of “FAST TRACK”.  Since it passed we now have our work cut out for us to defeat the entire TPP.  This will be a heavy lift as Larsen, DelBene, Murray and Cantwell were in favor of FAST TRACK and very possibly will be in favor of the entire deal.  In order to stop the TPP we need to act quickly and in solidarity with people in other countries. This massive trade agreement is a high priority for transnational corporations, and they are working fast to make it law.

A good web site to watch the news unravel is Flush the TPP.  They will have the latest information and updates.  And you will find out what actions are necessary.  Stay tuned for latest actions from OCCUPY BELLINGHAM newsletter and Facebook page.

Since the “Battle in Seattle,” the World Trade Organization has had an impossible time moving forward, as was seen in the failure of the Millennial and Doha Rounds of the WTO. People also stopped the Free Trade Area of the Americas and the Multilateral Agreement on Investment. And at least 14 other corporate trade agreements have not been completed because of widespread public opposition. This is hopeful news, and together we can stop the TPP also, which will be a tremendous victory for the people against transnational corporate power!

FREE TRADE IS CORPORATE TYRANNY

 

Nothing could be more true
