Utah Tar-Sand Activist Arrested During Blockade

Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 07/23/2014

On Monday July 21, 21 protestors were arrested during a attempted U.S. Tar Sand Oil blockade. 

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865607367/Protesters-from-across-US-a...

Utah is well-known for its polluted inversions during the winter months. 

It is said that tar sand oil is already being refined for CHEVERON gas-stations and Utah local gas station TOSORO, and is creating higher and even more dangerous levels of inversions in and around the Salt Lake valley. A North Salt Lake refinery is just one of a few other oil refineries around the state that is alledgedly refining tar sand.

Wednesday July 23, KBOO's Sekoynia Wright spoke with Jessica Lee a social media coordinator for Peaceful Uprising for an update on the protestors against the drilling development for tar sand in PR Springs, Utah.

Mon, 07/21/2014
Around 60 people gathered on the sidewalk outside of the Federal Building in the Lloyd District where Senator Ron Wyden has his office. They held signs calling for an end to the Gaza seige and invasion and in support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Many had the names of people killed in the current bombing and ground invasion of Gaza pinned to their chests. A group of five went inside to meet with Wyden staffers and reported back to the group afterwards. Paul Roland was there, and he recorded audio including interviews with Mark Braverman of Friends of Sabeel-North America, Portland group and Peter Miller with Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights.

Protest action at Seneca Jones biomass plant in Eugene

Mon, 07/07/2014
Activists with Cascadia Forest Defenders and Earth First! converged on the Seneca Jones biomass plant in Eugene this morning to protest the company’s privatization of public lands in the Elliott State Forest and ongoing pollution in West Eugene.
 
Several protestors locked themselves to equipment at the plant, effectively blocking the “truck dump” where biomass is loaded into the incinerator.
 
The plant releases an estimated 17,900 pounds of air toxins into West Eugene Neighborhoods annually.
 
There are three schools within three miles of the Seneca biomass facility.
 
For more information, KBOO’s Ken Jones spoke with Grace Warner of Cascadia Forest Defenders.

Eugene police will engage in forced blood tests over 4th of July weekend

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 07/02/2014
Eugene listeners will be interested to know that if they’re stopped at a police checkpoint this coming weekend, they had better agree to perform a Breathalyzer test, or risk being forced to have their blood drawn by the police.

During the coming holiday weekend in Eugene, police will implement a policy to forcibly draw blood from people who refuse to take an alcohol Breathalyzer test.
The so-called ‘no refusal’ policy will likely result in people being strapped down to gurneys and forced to have their blood drawn.
 
That’s been the result of ‘no refusal’ policies in other cities where they’ve been implemented.
 
Driving under the influence is a misdemeanor charge.  Forced blood tests are not required for any other misdemeanor charges, including drug possession. But they are allowed for people suspected of drunk driving.
 
In Georgia, forced blood draws have become a standard practice over the last several years, but lawyers there have challenged the practice as unconstitutional.
 
Bob Chestney is an Atlanta-based lawyer who has filed legal challenges to the practice of forced blood draws.  He is one of a group of lawyers that are challenging the practice of forced blood draws.
 
In Oregon, no lawyers have filed a challenge, and the ACLU told reporters that as long as the police get a search warrant for the blood, they are within the law.
But other civil liberties advocates say that strapping people down to a gurney and forcing them to submit to a blood draw is a violation of the fourth amendment ban on illegal search and seizure.

Seattle City Council Moves Forward with $15 Minimum Wage Proposal

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Fri, 05/30/2014
On Thursday, the Seattle City Council moved forward with a proposal to increase the city's minimum wage to $15 per hour. However, the proposal is not that simple and hasn't pleased all proponents of a wage increase. KBOO's Sam Bouman spoke with Nicholas Caleb, a Concordia University professor and former candidate for Portland City Council in last week's primary election about the ins and outs of Seattle's proposal and continuing efforts to raise the minimum wage in Oregon.

Seattle City Council to Vote on Minimum Wage Proposal

Thu, 05/29/2014
This morning the Seattle City Council’s Committee on Minimum Wage and Income Inequality approved an ordinance that would increase Seattle’s minimum wage to fifteen dollars.
The ordinance will go before the full council next week.
The committee declined to speed up the slow phase-in of the ordinance, which gives most businesses three or more years to raise their wages.
The ordinance includes a number of contentious amendments, including a sub-minimum wage for teenagers and health-care credits for businesses that provide insurance.
The energy surrounding the push for a higher minimum wage in Seattle stems largely from grassroots organizing and the election of Socialist candidate Kshama Sawant to the Council on a platform that prominently included a fifteen-dollar minimum wage.
Nicholas Caleb, a Columbia University professor, ran unsuccessfully for Portland City Council on a similar platform in last week’s primary election.
Caleb spoke with KBOO’s Sam Bouman this afternoon about Seattle’s proposed ordinance and the ongoing push for a wage increase in Portland.
