Amiri Baraka on Resistance & the Arts

Amiri Baraka - Resistance & the Arts (lecture)

From Allen Ginsberg to Kurt Vonnegut and from Bob Dylan to Michael Franti artists have been on the cutting edge. The arts play a pivotal role in society. The great historian Howard Zinn said: “Whenever I become discouraged I lift my spirits by remembering: The artists are on our side! I mean those poets and painters, singers and musicians, novelists and playwrights who speak to the world in a way that is impervious to assault because they wage the battle for justice in a sphere which is unreachable by the dullness of ordinary political discourse. The billionaire mandarins of our culture can show us the horrors of war on a movie screen and pretend they are making an important statement.

Abe and Joe tour the checkered history of the FBI and its future in Portland.

 The City of Portland and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have had a tumultuous relationship in recent years. First, Portland opted out of the Bush-era Joint Terrorism Task Force, citing concerns over civil liberties. Then, late last year, the FBI foiled its own plot to blow up the Christmas-tree lighting ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Now, the Bureau wants to splash $65 million on a new headquarters building near the airport, and the City is thinking about getting back together again. Abe and Joe take a look at the FBI's past, and weigh in on the question of re-joining the JTTF.
