Old Mole Variety Hour for May 18, 2009

This show features the rabble-rousing music of Anne Feeney whose songs underscore the social justice issues discussed by the Moles. Appearing on the program, which is hosted by Old Mole Laurie Mercier, is Dr. Margaret Flower, arrested in D.C. for protesting at a Senate Hearing where no advocates of single payer were to be heard (but they were heard!). Bill Resnick interviews her. Jan Haaken interviews Professor Brooke Campbell about debates over "erotic services" offered on Craig's list -- where no sex workers are heard. Laurie talks with Jill Fuglister about getting economic and racial justice issues into discourse about the environment. And we hear from two workers at a Portland nursing home one of whom was fired after trying to organize a union. Laurie introduces the show with comments about movements underway towards fairer taxation here in Oregon and for a single payer health program nationwide. For more information on these, contact the Portland Chapter of Alliance for Democracy.
