Tune in all day Thursday for in-depth coverage on Haiti

KBOO FUNDRAISER FOR HAITI
February 18th from 9 am to 10 pm

On Tuesday, January 12th, the nation of Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of the capital city and surrounding areas. The earthquake hit after decades of structural adjustment programs imposed by the International Monetary Fund, which privatized much of the nation's infrastructure, and in the wake of two centuries of abuse of the Haitian people by its former colonizers, a decades-long US occupation, and US-supported military dictatorships. We will examine the history of Haiti, as well as the culture and music of the Haitian people. This will be a fundraiser for grassroots efforts to help the Haitian people rebuild -- not with charity, but with solidarity.

Membership Drive Special: One Year Later – Where Do We Go From Here?
It’s been one year since the inauguration of President Barack Obama. How have progressive goals and proposals fared under his administration? Where do progressives go from here? What’s the future of activism on issues such as ending the wars and occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq? What about healthcare, saving the economy, the environment, trade policy, corporate domination, and education?
As Bill Moyers has said about the U.S., ”We are a very crippled giant suffering from self inflicted wounds that if we do not treat and heal, will in fact bring us to our knees and ultimately to our doom. We are close to losing the moral, financial, economic muscle and wisdom that makes a big nation a great nation.”

A special program featuring anarchist activist Margaret Killjoy and writer Ursula K. Le Guin talking about anarchism, fiction and the new book "Mythmakers and Lawbreakers," a collection of interviews with a wide variety of anarchist fiction writers–some of whom who are tangentially involved in anarchism, or fiction, or both, but all of whom have really fascinating takes on the subject.

Published by AK Press and edited by Margaret Killjoy, "Mythmakers and Lawbreatkers" includes conversations with sci-fi powerhouses Ursula K. Le Guin, Alan Moore, Michael Moorcock, and Lewis Shiner as well as young and emerging writers in a series of interviews that explore fiction's deeply political roots.

From the website www.underminers.org:

"Industrial Civilization is likely to be the last great empire humanity will ever see. If it is allowed to continue in its ravenous way then there is no future for humanity, for the natural systems and processes that allow humans to exist on Earth are the very things that Industrial Civilization is destroying. In fact, no form of civilization has ever been sustainable nor ever will be. In order for humanity to continue on Earth then civilization has to stop, and people allowed to return to a way of living that is connected to the real world.

We are not able to do this. At least not until we become Underminers. The industrial system depends, for its survival, on humans being disconnected from the real world and mentally attached to the machine that we fuel with our civilized lives. The Tools of Disconnection keep us in that state, and the only way to prevent us from being responsible for our demise is to undermine those Tools of Disconnection. Once we are free from the grip of the machine and reconnected with the real world then the myth of Industrial Civilization will die, and humanity will be able to continue.

Underminers is the timely follow-up to Time’s Up! An Uncivilized Solution to a Global Crisis. It takes up where that book left off, with a detailed, highly practical approach to the process of undermining in all its many hues. At once entertaining, shocking and inspiring, Underminers draws on the author’s own experience dealing at first hand with the lies of the industrial machine, and that of a wide range of other people who have their own unique take on the swath of topics covered in the book.

From the reasons we are unable to act, to the nitty-gritty of keeping ourselves and others safe during the undermining process, the first half of the book is an invaluable guide to navigating the industrial system and becoming a fully-formed Underminer. The second half details, with surprising openness how the reader can utilize their abilities and new-found determination to be an effective Underminer; whether that be undermining the advertising industry or the political machine, turning symbolic protestors into real activists, building self-determined communities or simply being ourselves – connected, free human beings."

In addition to the underminers.org site, Farnish also hosts www.KeithFarnish.com and www.theearthblog.com.

Charles Eisenstein: "The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible"

program date: 
Fri, 02/14/2014
In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? In his The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible, Charles Eisenstein submits that the old worldview of Separation must fall away, to be replaced by a new worldview of Inter-being, and a radically different understanding of cause and effect. He explores how the more beautiful world becomes possible with the recognition that we are all connected and that our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. Eisenstein is interviewed by host Stephanie Potter as part of KBOO's special programming for Valentine's Day, "For the Love of a Better World."

Thomas Linzey speech at Community Rights PDX anti-GMO campaign event in Portland, Sept. 2013

program date: 
Fri, 10/18/2013
The speaker is one of the main proponents of a growing movement to curtail the "rights" and destructive practices of corporations at a local, grassroots level. Linzey started the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund in Pennsylvania working for clients trying to stop factory hog farms from moving into their area and similar environmental issues. He soon found his work stymied by a structure of law skewed by Constitutional and legal protections for private property and corporations. Out of that has grown a new "community rights" movement to educate people about the real legal and political structures that maintain corporate dominance as well as crafting local ordinances and ballot intitiatives to curtail corporate power.
