After a devastating Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip from Dec. 27, 2008 - Jan. 20, 2009 which resulted in over 1400 Palestinians killed by Israelis and 5 Israelis killed by Palestinians, the population of Gaza has been unable to rebuild the 20,000 destroyed homes and buildings due to an ongoing Israeli-imposed siege.  A year after the attack, we look at what role the US has played in the ongoing assault on Gaza, the solidarity marches which will be arriving at the Gaza border as we speak, and examine the history of the refugee population of the Gaza Strip.  Tune in from 8 am to 8 pm on Wednesday, December 30th, for our all day special on Gaza.

As an African-American, on his way to a conference on political prisoners convened by the Palestinian Authority in the city of Jericho, bin Wahad feels that he was racially profiled, along with his travelling companion Naji Mujahid - the only two African Americans on a busload of white tourists.

Indigenous Resistance Day

On October 12th, KBOO commemorates Indigenous Resistance Day (known to some people as 'Columbus Day') from 8 - 11 am, with talks by John Trudell and other renowned native activists.

John Trudell is an acclaimed poet, national recording artist, actor and activist whose international following reflects the universal language of his words, work and message. Trudell (Santee Sioux) was a spokesperson for the Indian of All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971. He then worked with the American Indian Movement (AIM), serving as Chairman of AIM from 1973 to 1979. In February of 1979, a fire of unknown origin killed Trudell’s wife, three children and mother-in-law. It was through this horrific tragedy that Trudell began to find his voice as an artist and poet, writing, in his words, “to stay connected to this reality.”

Interview with Blair Bobier

Wed, 05/16/2012

KBOO reporter Jennifer Kemp spoke with Blair Bobier of the Pacific Green Party for the evening news. Bobier contests Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown's decision to bar Green Party candidates from running on the Oregon State ballot. Bobier objects, saying that the Green Party has in the past received more than 1% of votes, legitimately qualifying the party to run candidates on the ballot. The Pacific Green Party has also maintained the necessary numbers of voters allow their candidates to remain on the ballot. Bobier sees the issues as a larger one of democracy and freedom of choice for voters.
