What's the future of community media? A discussion with Erik Mollberg and Phil Busse

As recent events in Iran have shown, technology has given ordinary people the power to inform neighbors down the street and strangers halfway around the world about important events regardless of government censorship or corporate media indifference. "Community media" - citizen-operated print, broadcast and digital technologies - is filling the information needs of a growing number of Americans.

Sit/Lie Unconstitutional! Cause for Celebration? Well...Not Really...

A judge has ruled the Sit/Lie unconstitutional but Police Chief Rosie Sizer released a memo stating that all the judge ruled was that Portland should just use disorderly conduct instead of Sit/Lie. That is not what the judge ruled and her vague memo creates NO meaningful distinction between the Sit/Lie and disorderly conduct. This is not how the city should react to the loss of the constitutional legitimacy of the Sit/Lie.

Hear members of the Civic Action Group at Sisters of the Road discuss the impacts of Sizer's interpretation, and how the community can get involved.
