KBOO’s month long experiment in ‘embedded journalism’ at Occupy Portland

When the Occupy Portland encampment began on October 6th, we at KBOO knew that we would be very involved in reporting on the movement – the issues, the constituency involved, the bottom-up civic activism displayed by the camp’s ad-hoc organizers all spoke directly to KBOO’s long-established values of peace, justice, democracy, human rights, multiculturalism, freedom of expression and social change.

But I don’t think any of us realized at the time just how entrenched our reporting would become.

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.
