Dirty South Earth First! Delievers a Message in Neighborhood of Maxxam Executives

While forest defenders battle Pacific Lumber in the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest, Dirty South Earth First! has taken the battle to the executive homes of PL's Houston-based parent company, Maxxam Corporation. In addition to numerous home demonstrations, the following letter was recently sent to the neighbors of these executives.

Dear Community Member,

In Humboldt County, California, Houston-based Maxxam Corporation and its subsidiary, Pacific Lumber Company, have been clear-cutting the remaining 3% (approx. 100,000 acres) of old growth forest that remain in the continental United States. Maxxam-owned Pacific Lumber has decimated populations of already endangered species and created hazardous conditions that have led to floods, forest fires and mudslides that continually endanger area residents.

Charles Hurwitz, Maxxam CEO, has faced numerous criminal charges and civil suits for looting and crashing the United Savings Association of Texas in 1988, costing American taxpayers $1.6 billion. Hurwitz simultaneously raided Pacific Lumber’s worker pension fund, removing $55 million from the retired loggers and mill workers’ nest eggs, and selling off much of the company’s other liquitable assets for the quick cash he desired. Hurwitz has lost seven environmental lawsuits over his incessant, illegal logging in the ancient redwood forests of Northern California.

Santa Cruz March for Women's Lives

lives_4-16-04.jpgThe UCSC chapter of The Feminist Majority hosted the Santa Cruz March for Women's Lives on April 16 to support the national March for Women's Lives in Washington D.C on April 25, marking the largest collective pro-choice event in the past decade. Different organizations from all across the nation are participating in the March, including N.O.W. and The Feminist Majority.

The pro-choice march is meant to combat conservative legislation that has been milling through congress in the past few years and publicize important causes that are in dire need of attention. Such legislation includes the partial-birth-abortion law, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (UVVA), and The Cupid Project.

The Santa Cruz March for Women's Lives began with a rally at 2:00 p.m. at Porter Meadows where students gathered before marching through the theater arts center, by McHenry library, and on to the Quarry Amphitheater for speakers and musicians at the main event.

WHY BUSH demolished the WTCs with explosives: the "2 birds with 1 stone" story

WHY BUSH/Israel demolished the WTCs with explosives: two birds with one stone. BIRD ONE: WTCs were 5 TIMES AS EXPENSIVE to take down, insurance money though from terror would be a landfall. BIRD TWO: military invasion requirements of American multinational corporations in the Middle East, and to aid in Greater Zion, "Pearl Harbor" like terror recommended for US soil to get Americans in line. ONE STONE: fake terror to demonize all of Islam and terrorize America under a wacky minority of right wing plutocrats set on an unpopular crusade and global police state.
