Washington’s Huckleberry Pack remains in the cross-hairs. Please act now to save the family from aerial gunners by asking officials to revoke their kill order.

This is going on now and we need your calls and emails NOW to try and stop this. Please read and share widely. 

So far one #HuckleberryPack wolf has been killed by Wildlife Services-an innocent pup. Please CALL the following people and ask them to rescind the kill order, then follow up with an email. Please remember to be calm and respectful to ensure your comments are heard:

Washington Governor Jay Inslee at (360) 902-4111, then email him at governor@gov.wa.gov

Washington Fish and Wildlife Director Phil Anderson at 360 902-2200 ext. #8 then email him at @dfw.wa.gov AND wildthing@dfw.wa.gov

Also if you are on Twitter please tweet the following:

@WDFW @GovInslee Killing the Wedge pack in 2012 cost taxpayers $76,500 and serious black eye; rescind kill order on #HuckleberryPack

In the Face of Repression // Organizing in Spite of the Surveillance State 

Portland State UniversityIn the face of repression
Smith Memorial Student Union 
Room 296/8

The National Weekend of Action Against the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) is September 5-7.

The AETA labels animal activists as terrorists and is one of the most unconstitutional laws since COINTELPRO. In response to new indictments under the AETA, this weekend of action has been called as a show of solidarity, to increase the visibility of ongoing counter-intelligence, and to encourage activists to organize and resist in the face of repression.

In Portland, Resistance Ecology and Oregon Jericho are coordinating an afternoon of presenters and panels to discuss the AETA, and to use it as a platform to connect the more expansive processes and histories of repression that are incurred by systematically marginalized, colonized, frontlines, and resistance communities. We want animal and earth liberation activists to understand that all captivity must be ended. It is important to underscore the reality that many communities are always under state repression, not just so-called “activists” communities. It is imperative to stress the need for communities to show solidarity with each other to increase capacity and resilience against surveillance, state violence, and the prison industry. We must reject the misconception that prison or surveillance serve any sort of positive function and instead recognize repression for what it really is: a process engrained into colonial-capitalist society.

In the Face of Repression: Organizing in Spite of the Surveillance State will be a day of workshops, history lessons, strategy sessions, and solidarity. We invite you to join us and take part!
