Occupy Wall Street protesters marching to DC

Tue, 11/08/2011

A group of activists from Occupy Wall Street are preparing to set off Thursday on a march to Washington DC to confront the Congressional Supercommittee on its plan to cut social programs while continuing tax cuts for the rich.

They will walk around twenty miles a day and stay at the homes of supporters along the route, and plan to arrive in Washington in time for the November 23rd deadline for the so-called supercommittee to announce over a trillion dollars in budget cuts.

KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg spoke with Michael Grazier, one of the march organizers.

Voters in Mississippi will decide tomorrow on a 'personhood' initiative which, if passed, would confer legal personhood upon a fertilized ovum. This would of course render abortion illegal, and any other act that interfered with said ovum's development -- like, say, a miscarriage, or the use of certain kinds of birth control -- could be considered negligent homicide or even murder.

Movie Moles: They Live

program date: 
Mon, 11/07/2011

Joe Clement and Frann Michel turn to this film because of its obviously critical message about late capitalism, and the way some of its complaints, seemingly new and unprescedented at the time, resonate with the Occupy Wall Street movement today. But they have mixed feelings about how far John Carpenter's portrayal of society hijacked by otherwise unseen aliens through psychological manipulation can go as a social analysis of the real actors and sources of inequality, injustice, and social and environmental destruction.
