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.

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.
