Mon, 06/02/2014
Joe Clement talks with Hart Noecker and Nick Caleb about gentrification in Portland and a Pedalpalooza ride* they're organizing to raise awareness and stimulate action around it.

The promised online portion starts right after a 10 second musical clip at the end. In it they dive into a more open conversation about density, green capitalism and how the market distorts and undermines the aims of development, organizing working and poor communities to take, and more.

Mon, 06/02/2014
Bill Resnick talks with Phyllis Bennis about recent US foreign policy and policy attitudes toward Syria, the Ukraine, China and more. They start by looking at Barack Obama's recent foreign policy speech wherein he responds to critics, and how he validates a strawman that equivocates military presence with troop numbers and avoids the failure of international military interventions. They consider "unconventional" approaches to warfare and how it fails people in occupied territories. Phyllis points out the clever way that money for contractors has been deceptively "cut" from military budgets and transfered effectively to the State department. 16:10 minutes (14.8 MB)

Stephen Zunes on Non-violent Resistance in Ukraine & Kshama Savant Seattle Socialist Leader

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Tue, 06/03/2014
This straight out of the Wiki, but interesting in context.  Stephen Zunes was our guest on Monday and the topic was 'Peaceful  Non-violent Resistence in Ukraine and Crimea'. The tactic is a real piss-cutter as far as the Powers that Be are concerned; The less danger, the more people who turn out. Consider Ukraine...Many people in American newsrooms hear rthe words, 'Ukraine' and 'Crimea' and nothing comes to mind. No images, no recognition, no recollection of reading history, no insight into the complex knot of culture, social reality, geopolitics.  The names ring only tiny, faint bells.
So, for the record:
