A social media campaign has amplified attention to the widespread stigmatization of Native Americans


Native Americans have been calling for the end to the use of racist stereotypes and sports mascots for decades, with some slow and steady progress.

Yet powerful franchises like the Washington Redskins, Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians have firmly resisted any change or recognition that anything is wrong with their team names and mascots.

May Day! May Day! Host: Paul Roland

Air date: 
Wed, 04/30/2014 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Tomas and Ash from the Portland IWW join Paul to talk about the history and meaning of May Day

May Day's ancient origin as a celebration of the earth's fecundity and the beginning of summer and its modern incarnation as an international worker's day may not seem to have much in common. But they are linked by the rise of industrial capitalism, which has on the one hand uprooted  masses of people from the land and its cycles and sustenance, and on the other forced most people to depend on an alienating system of wages, rents, interest and profits that benefits a relative few. Movements throughout history, from the Diggers in England to the early socialist comunes to the 60's counterculture to the radical environmental movement have in various degrees combined a return to direct connection to the land with a resistance to the alien system of Capital.

Cascadia Rising Bioregional Confluence follow-up and regional reports, hosted by Paul Roland

Air date: 
Wed, 04/23/2014 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Reflections on the event that happened Sunday in Portland, and call-ins from around the region

An enthusiastic and well-attended "Bioregional Confluence" in Portland this past Sunday brought together people from around Cascadia to meet and attend panels on a wide range of subjects. At lunch, the assembly brought back to life, after many years without a Bioregional gathering in this region, the tradition of regional or "watershed" reportbacks. Some of those attending will call in with the issues they are working on in their areas. Listeners who attended or who have issues of their own they are working on are encouraged to call in at 503-231-8032. We hope to make this at least a semi-regular feature of KBOO Public Affairs programming.
