Short Description: 
Know your rights! Listen to find out about grand juries and political harassment.

Ani and Lyn talk with Lauren Regan, the founder and executive director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), where she also serves as the staff attorney.

Political repression is on the rise.  Several homes have been raided in Portland, Olympia, and Seattle as part of a grand jury investigation, and the warrants served listed anarchist literature as something they were looking for.  Infiltrators and provocateurs have been used to target, disrupt and entrap activists.  These actions can have a chilling effect on activists and our communities.  

Knowing your rights is critically important.  What do you need to know to protect yourself?

Joe talks about Coal Trains through Oregon

program date: 
Tue, 08/21/2012

 Hosted by Joe Uris.  Abe Proctor is on Vacation.

Today's topic is the Coal Industry, and their plans to chop down Mountains in Appalacia and ship them through the Columbia Gorge, to China for incineration.  This is a Bad Idea for many reasons.  The trains leak significant amounts of Coal Dust, which degrades our health and environment.  Burning Coal in China increases the Air Pollution right here, in the United States, for we live on a Globe, a closed system.  Chopping down Mountains and throwing the rubble and waste into Streams is very destructive.

John mentions at one point the Red and Black's web-page and the form to request use of the space for an event.
