Locus Focus
program date: 
Tue, 04/21/2009

 

Host Barbara Bernstein interviews Sixties activist Mark Rudd about his new memoir: "Underground: My Life with SDS and the Weatherman." 

 

41 years ago this week students at Columbia University began an occupation of their campus that shut down the university and resonated around the world. Last year many of these activists gathered at Columbia to remember and reassess this life-changing event. Among them was Mark Rudd, who was one of the leaders of the strike and later went on to help found the ultra-left Weatherman faction of SDS. After spending 7 years underground, he emerged in 1976 and began to reconstruct his life based upon non-violent principles. His memoir UNDERGROUND: MY LIFE WITH SDS AND THE WEATHERMEN has just been published. Mark will be speaking and signing books at Looking Glass Books on SE 13th in Sellwood on April 26 at 4 PM.

program date: 
Mon, 04/20/2009

Few gendered spaces are as vehemently patrolled and the penality for violating gender norms can range from ejection to arrest to bodily harm. Bathroom acess isn't just a trans issue, as many single parents discover when faced with signs baring them from from accompanying non-same-sex children into public restrooms or dressing rooms.

Here's your White House Chief of Staff, speaking on ABC this past Sunday:

According to Rahm, it is the president's position that everybody involved in torture gets a free pass. The officials who dreamed it up, the lawyers who justified it, and the agents who actualy did the torturing. Because, you know, we're all about moving forward now and investigations and prosecutions would be unseemly.
