Michele Darr is in the same spot she has been for the past eleven days; camping and on hunger strike at the steps of governor Ted Kulongoski’s office in salem.   She wants a meeting with the governor and a chance to dissuade him from sending oregon's National Guard to serve in Iraq.  Michele is dismayed with the deployment and with the Bush Administration's “Stop Loss” policy which involuntarily extends a service member's active duty.

National Rally Against Prop 8 Sat 11/15 in PDX

We're presented with a rare opportunity to be a positive force in the history of our country, to stand in solidarity with a minority group fighting for its civil rights.  On Saturday, November 15th, protestors will gather in cities across the country to speak out against the anti-gay politics and sentiment of our recent elections, including California's Prop 8.  Please check out the following link:

As a lesbian, I'm personally moved by the words of Joe Solmonese, President of Human Rights Campaign:
 

The Decider

 Apropos of my post below, Obama is planning to review the plethora of onerous executive orders issued by President Bush:

President-elect Barack Obama is poised to move swiftly to reverse actions that President Bush took using executive authority, and his transition team is reviewing limits on stem-cell research and the expansion of oil and gas drilling, among other issues, members of the team said Sunday.

Clearly, much more needs to be reviewed besides the issues mentioned above, but for a guy who's more than a month from taking office, this is a very encouraging start.

Short Description: 
The Digital Divide: A show on technology activism

How do the latest technologies affect our communities? How can we use science to benefit society and how do we keep it from harming us? KBOO's The Digital Divide attempts to answer these questions and ask a few of our own through interviews, recordings, and commentary. The show touches upon such issues as open source, privacy, transparency, intellectual property, free speech, accessibility, hacking, net neutrality, file sharing, piracy, social networking, pollution, bioethics and more.

The program begins with a roundup of technology news from around the world and then provides in-depth feature stories from a variety of reporters. In our pilot show we cover the recent elections - how technology was used to get out the vote and also prevent it.  We feature an interview with one of the communications collective members for those who protested the Republican National Convention.  We'll also hear from Tim Jones of the Electronic Frontier Foundation on what to expect from an Obama administration and what changes they are proposing be made to improve our digital civil liberties.
