program date: 
Wed, 08/17/2011

Hosted by Lisa Loving

The WILPF is working to draw attention to release of the film, The Whistleblower, this weekend at your downtown metroplex. Members will be leading discussions of the issues after the film this weekend. We're joined by WILPF members Lucinda Tate and Georgia Pinkel.

This film, which opens Friday, chronicles the true story of Kathryn Bolkovac (played by Rachel Weisz), an American woman who brought to light the sexual atrocities being perpetrated in Bosnia with the complicity of U.N. and U.S. security contractors.  WILPF International Secretary General Madeleine Rees (portrayed in the film by Vanessa Redgrave) was at that time head of the Women’s Rights and Gender Unit for the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.  She played an integral part in the effort to expose trafficking. WILPF Portland members will be on hand after te film to answer questions and distribute information about United Nations Resolution 1325, a 10-year-old promise that women would be treated as agents of peace and reconciliation, not just as victims of war and violence.

Bo Rinaldi on a Plant Based Lifestyle

Categories:
program date: 
Fri, 07/22/2011

Host Robyn Shanti welcomes guest Bo Rinaldi, who calls himself a “bloodless revolutionary” and believes that the only way out of this matrix of Corporatocracy we find ourselves in, is by adopting a plant based lifestyle.

Bo is one of the pioneers of the organic movement in the US and has been a vegan since 1960, when at 12 years old, he cured himself of asthma and other allergies by following a vegan diet in just two weeks. What Bo proposes now is that a simple plant based diet can cure what ails us, saving us tons of money, support our local economies better than any other action and free us from the matrix of control known as 'food', which actually kills us, medicines that mask symptoms and businesses that pillage the lands and peoples.

Willamette Riverkeeper and The Big Float

program date: 
Wed, 07/13/2011

Hosted by Lisa Loving

What do you know about the current state of the Willamette River? Want to know more? Tune in as host Lisa Loving welcomes Willamette Riverkeeper's Travis Williams, Executive Director and Riverkeeper, and Will Levenson, organizer of The Big Float as they discuss the Willamette River and a new project to raise funds for the Willamette Riverkeeper to provide physical water access to the Willamette in downtown Portland.

Levenson says the idea of THE BIG FLOAT is simple yet powerful. In a city that prides itself on being green and having a strong environmental conscience, it does not reconcile that the mighty Willamette has been proverbially locked in the closet underneath the staircase and brushed aside as a joke. Today, the Willamette River has a very bad and undeserved wrap for water quality.

THE BIG FLOAT’s aspiration is that within the next 5-10 years the Willamette River will be embraced and reclaimed as a recreational resource.

 

Why is the Black unemployment rate double that for whites?

program date: 
Wed, 07/06/2011

 Hosted by Lisa Loving

Why has the Black unemployment rate stayed double that for whites since the 1940s? Lisa Loving's guest today is investigative reporter Andy Kroll of Mother Jones and TomDispatch.com. His recent article is,"What We Don't Talk About When We Talk About Jobs: How Racism, Global Economics, and the New Jim Crow Fuel Black America's Crippling Jobs Crisis." He writes, "Nationwide, the unemployment rate for black workers at 16.2 percent is almost double the 9.1 percent rate for the rest of the population. And it's twice the 8 percent white jobless rate. ... Since the 1940s, the jobless rate for blacks in America has held remarkably, if grimly, steady at twice the rate for whites. The question of why has vexed and divided economists, historians, and sociologists for nearly as long." Read it here

Mike Gravel on Government Secrecy and the Pentagon Papers

Categories:
program date: 
Wed, 06/15/2011

 Hosted by Lisa Loving

Today's Guest is MIKE GRAVEL, former two-term senator from Alaska, speaking on the hypocrisy of the US government's move to make the complete Pentagon Papers collection available to the public. In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times as well as Senator Gravel, who late in the evening of June 29 to June 30 entered them into the Congressional Record; he was conducting a filibuster against the draft.

"It's particularly ridiculous that the government is putting out a version of the Pentagon Papers now because the government approach to Ellsberg and myself is being echoed in their approach to Bradley Manning, the alleged source of the WikiLeaks revelations. Our oaths bind us to loyalty to the Constitution and not to government officials who lie us into wars."
