Patricia Daniels Reclaims Her Home from the Banksters (rough)

program date: 
Sat, 09/29/2012

Patricia Daniels, director of Constructing Hope, reclaimed her foreclosed home from the banksters on Saturday.  With the assistance of 30 neighbors, We Are Oregon and Occupy Northeast, the Black Working Group, Ms. Daniels moved back into the house her mother had bought forty years ago.  The victim of a predatory loan and fraudulent foreclosure, Patricia Daniels was inspired to re-occupy her vacant house after seeing several other families in the neighborhood refuse to move.  KBOO reporter Jamie Partridge recorded a rally outside and several conversations with Ms. Daniels inside the home.

Arun Gupta – Beyond Occupy

Arun Gupta – Beyond Occupy (lecture)

The Occupy movement caught everyone by surprise. When the first tents went up on Wall Street on Sept 17, 2011, the experts and the media soothsayers and sages were befuddled. Who were these people? What did they want? After many years of class warfare waged by the haves, the have-nots, rose from their slumber and said, Enough. The widening gaps in income and wealth had become too acute to ignore. And there was a general sense that the system only works for the powerful and everyone else is left scrambling to survive. Deep-seated anger was epitomized in such slogans as, “We Got Sold Out. They Got Bailed Out.” The encampments, almost all of them razed to the ground by the police, are mostly memories now.

Is a single, democratic Israel-Palestine state the only option left?

Is a single, democratic state in Israel-Palestine the only option left? An interview with Jeff Halper.

So far this year, Israel has demolished 140 houses in the Occupied Territories, displacing 702 Palestinians, bringing the total for displaced persons since 2009 to 3,045. The demolition of Palestinian residences and the continued building of new settlements in the Occupied Territories are just two indicators that time is running out for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. Is it time to let go of the two-state solution and consider a single democratic state?
