Circle A Radio on 11/18/09
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. This is Walida Imarisha.
Tonight on Circle A Radio we will listen to Max Rameau’s speech, and hear about the struggle for land and housing in Portland.
