Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water on privatization of water & challenging EPA LT2 rule

For over 100 years Portlanders have safely been drinking water from the Bull Run reservoir where it is treated organically and naturally, but in applying a "one-size fits all" rule the Environmental Protection Agency has mandated that the City cover its reservoirs and build filtration plants. The average Portland water bill could double in the next five years if the city complies.  Host Stephanie Potter will talk with Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water about how this issue relates to the trend of corporate influences toward privatization of water, and how Citizens for Portland Water is attempting to challenge the EPA ruling.

Culture Is Our Weapon

The guest is Damian Platt, co-author with Patrick Neate, of CULTURE IS OUR WEAPON: Making Music and Changing Lives in Rio De Janeiro.

Damian will talk about his work with the Rio-based NGO AfroReggae, a group who uses music and art to keep the children of Rio’s favelas out of the pervasive drug trade. AfroReggae was forged out of the 1993 police massacre of 21 people in one of the favelas. Founded by ex-drug traffickers, AfroReggae works to take young people out of the drug/gang culture and harness the ingenuity and creativity of their communities to provide positive alternatives for young people. It shows the side of Rio beyond the tans of Ipanema and the pageantry of Carnival - the Rio you won’t find in any tourist guidebook.

Host Bruce Silverman interviews Alissa Hamilton, author of "Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Alissa Hamilton is a Food and Society Policy Fellow with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. She lives in Toronto.

Close to three quarters of U.S. households buy orange juice. Its popularity crosses class, cultural, racial, and regional divides. Why do so many of us drink orange juice? How did it turn from a luxury into a staple in just a few years? More important, how is it that we don’t know the real reasons behind OJ’s popularity or understand the processes by which the juice is produced?

Susan Lindauer worked for years through back channel resources around the world as a CIA asset specializing in counter-terrorism, set up the diplomatic architecture that - had it been adopted - would have avoided the Iraq War.  For her extraordinary dedication and commitment to American security, Lindauer was arrested, incarcerated at Carswel, Texas's Communication Management Unit where they attempted to drug her and prevent her from standing trial.  Authorities at Carswell figured it would take a little longer than it usually did to "break" her because...Well...(and this is a little embarrassing for our beloved government)...because as a CIA asset she was CIA-trained.  Susan Lindauer has it all documented, again thanks to our own Patriot-acting agents who thoughtfully taped every conversation: Your tax dollars at work!  Read the book;  It's a King Hell nightmare on wheels.  No one could make this shit up.
