documentOil Lobby spending in California increases by 400 percent
by Dan Bacher
The rise of oil industry spending documented in the report corresponds directly with the increase in fracking in Monterey Shale deposits in Kern County, coastal areas and Southern California ocean waters – and the creation of so-called "marine protected areas" that fail to protect the ocean from fracking, oil drilling, pollution, military testing and all human impacts other than fishing and gathering. Oil companies have fracked offshore wells at least 203 times over the past 20 years in th...

by Alex Darocy
Community members in San Benito are hoping they will be the first "frontline" county in California to ban fracking and other methods of extreme oil and gas extraction. Since late March, volunteers across the county have begun collecting signatures for a fracking ban initiative they hope to have on the 2014 ballot in November. Progress is moving quickly: after only two weeks of collecting signatures, the organization San Benito Rising announced they are nearly halfway through their drive. [Top...

textMilitarization of the police: Confront police brutality through organized mass action by Nazila Bijari
Wearing full body armor and armed with assault weapons, SWAT teams’ tactics make it much more likely that people will be killed. Using no-knock raids, they rush into a resident’s home by breaking the door. Immediately upon entry, they commonly use “flash-bang” grenades, which render people temporarily blind and deaf. Naturally, the targets of such raids might assume that their home is under attack by criminals. If the residents are armed and try to defend themselves, they are likely to be kil...

by Animal Liberation Press Office
We hadn’t got but 50 yards down the road when I spotted the 1st trap. It’s the one that had the racoon’s foot in it. The long stake attached to it took me about 20 minutes to dig up. I was nervous that I was gonna get caught so I got the dogs in the cars and was going to leave but just couldn’t. I went back and found 2 more. Went home and looked up Arkansas trapping law and found out that traps with bait(these had small fish) are supposed to be checked every 24 hours. By the presence of the r...
