Die German Stunde talks about -- Immigration: How Germany/the US is handling it -- or not

Die German Stunde talks about the publication of "Deutschland Schafft Sich Ab"  or Germany Does Away With Itself by Thilo Sarrazin, a (soon-to-be) former central banker. Sarrazin says Jews have a common gene and Muslims are either unwilling or unable to integrate into western societies. Intellectuals in Germany have roundly condemned the book, but a large number of average Germans think Sarrazin has publicly expressed what has long been tabu. Our guests:  Feridun Bek, born and raised in Germany to Turkish immigrant parents, Mr. Bek is an auto executive who now lives in Detroit. He'll talk about what Germany and the U.S. do right -- and wrong -- when it comes to immigration. And Sergey Lagodinsky.

Here at KBOO, we're slowing digging through our archives to bring hidden gems to light in the digital era.  While much of our archived audio is on reel-to-reel, we have some newer work on CD format that we're currently unearthing. 

Here's a great example: Nikki Giovanni's 2002 appearance at Clark College.  In addition to some great readings of her poems, she speaks candidly about slavery, Mars, aliens, black holes, and the Panama Canal.

Portlanders break the blockade on Cuba!

program date: 
Tue, 07/07/2009

For more than 40 years, the Cuban people have faced an economic, commercial and financial blockade by the government of the United States of America.

 

Cubans say this is one of the most cruel, inhuman and prolonged policies of hostility endured by any people in the history of human civilization.

 

Throughout these last 44 years, a total of 10 different U.S. administrations have reinforced and expanded the complex system of laws and measures that make up the blockade established by the U.S. government against the people of Cuba.

 

This policy has inflicted and continues to inflict serous damage to the Cuban people’s material, psychological and spiritual welfare, while seriously hindering its economic, cultural and social development.

 

An event was held in Portland on Sunday to send a painted solidarity school bus of aid from the Pacific Northwest to Cuba. The bus will be joining thirty other vehicles, and over one hundred participants, who will be crossing into Cuba on July 21st. This will be the first open attempt to break the blockade during the Obama administration.

 
Sunday’s event began with singer David Rovics.
 
Speakers include Alicia Jrapko and Nita Palmer.  The segment ends with a song by Maria Damaris.

USS Liberty: Survivors of the 1967 Israeli attack

program date: 
Sun, 06/07/2009

James Marquis Ennes, Jr., a survivor of the 1967 attack by Israel on the American intelligence ship USS Liberty and one of the creators of The USS Liberty Memorial Web Site, is an American citizen and a retired career US Naval Officer. He was born in New Jersey in 1933 and was raised in New York, Texas, Illinois, Washington State and California.

Alison Weir  "Because so few people know about Israel's extremely ruthless attack on the US Navy ship, the  USS Liberty, I'd like to alert you to that  as well.  This is a profoundly important topic. The crew members, who are still waiting for justice, have waged a heroic (but to date unsuccessful) campaign to bring this attack before the American people."
