Thu, 07/31/2008 - 7:30am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Another bad year for Oregon's initiative process?

Oregon's initiative process was supposed to give Oregonians power over special interests but in recent years the opposite seems to be the case. Jo Ann and Dave will talk with Marcy Westerling of the Rural Organizing Project about two Columbia County ballot measures that purport to deal with undocumented workers but which Westerling and others believe is about fueling animosity towards all immigrants in the county. Next, they will talk with organizers from Our Oregon and Rural Organizing Project about statewide ballot measures from Bill Sizemore and Kevin Mannix that could dramatically impact Oregonians should they pass in November.

Naomi Klein on "The Shock Doctrine"
Naomi Klein of Canada is an award-winning journalist, author and
filmmaker. Her articles appear in major newspapers and magazines all
over the world. Her documentary film on the economic crisis in
Argentina is "The Take." "No Logo," her book on globalization and
marketing was an international bestseller. Her latest book is "The
Shock Doctrine."

Catastrophes from Katrina to Iraq from Afghanistan to the Asian
Tsunami clear the way for corporations to move in and operate in
newly privatized zones, pushing local government overboard. Kind of
like shock and awe economics. Privatize, privatize, privatize is
intoned like a mantra by the economic high priests of neoliberalism.
