 Max Rameau  is the founder of the Miami-based organization Take Back the Land. In 2006, the organization seized control of a vacant lot and built a shantytown called Umoja Village. Take Back the Land then began a campaign of taking over bank-owned foreclosed homes and moving
homeless families into them.
Max Rameau just completed a North West tour from November 12 through the 17th. We recorded his speech at Portland State University on Friday November 13th.

Voices from the Edge: What's behind Oregon's domestic violence murders-suicides?

program date: 
Thu, 12/10/2009

Fourteen Oregonians died last month in five murder-suicides and one attempted murder suicide. Why this sudden outbreak now of men using guns to murder their spouses, ex-spouses and themselves when domestic violence homicides in Oregon have been on the decline? In 1997, 22 domestic violence homicides took place in Multnomah County alone. In recent years, the state average has been eight murder-suicides a year. Is it the economic climate, a lack of social services, or deep-rooted cultural issues?

This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Jennifer Warren, LCSW, a counselor with Portland's Men's Resource Center/Women's Counseling Center since 1998. She specializes in domestic violence intervention and recovery, and has worked extensively with men and women arrested for domestic violence. Join us in this discussion about what's behind domestic violence murder-suicides, how the problem is being addressed and what needs to be done to stop the violence.

The plight of Christians in Bethlehem today

program date: 
Thu, 12/10/2009

As Christians around the world prepare for the annual Christmas holiday, Christians who live in Bethlehem say that their plight has been neglected and forgotten. Christian Palestinians have lived in Bethlehem since the time of Christ, but have faced dislocation and repression since Israel was created in 1948.

This hour, we examine the situation of Bethlehem today, including a report on al-Wallaja village, which is a Christian Palestinian village located just outside of Bethlehem, produced by Ghassan Bannoura and Hazem Jamjoum; an interview with Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh of Bethlehem University; and a report on solidarity ‘From Brooklyn to Bethlehem’.

A group of climate activists in Copenhagen are on the 33rd day of a hunger strike for climate justice.

They are demanding a binding agreement to fund climate adaptation and mitigation activities in developing nations with at least one hundred ninety five billion dollars per year. They also demand an end to overconsumption, deforestation and the use of fossil fuels.

Yesterday two Portland activists joined the fast in solidarity, sitting in Pioneer Courthouse Square and calling for climate justice locally and globally. KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg spoke with one of the Copenhagen hunger strikers, Anna Keenan from Australia.
