Health Disparities for Pacific Islanders in Oregon

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/30/2015
A new report by Multnomah County reveals a staggering health disparity for Pacific Islanders in Oregon. Oregon has the fifth largest population of Pacific Islanders in the country, but some are barred from receiving Medicaid. And those who are eligible often still can’t afford it. The US has a checkered history with Pacific Island nations, and those communities in general fly under the public radar. Alan Montesillo spoke with Kristina Narayan, who is a policy associate at the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon. She explained the history behind the US relationship with Pacific Islands, and what is blocking them from getting healthcare today.

Officials and Activists Weigh Options for O & C Lands

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/30/2015
The US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released five options for updating the Northwest Forest Plan, which determines, among other things, the number of board feet allowed to be harvested from the O & C lands. These lands are a patchwork of square-mile plots surrounding the coprridor of the failed Oregon & California railroad extending the full length of the Oregon coast. In the 1930s, a deal was set up where the land once owned by the O & C would become public land for the benefit of local counties, and the result was decades of wholesale logging, only ending in the early 1990s due to environmental regulations. Officials in the 18 affected counties have stated they support whichever option allows for harvesting of the most board feet, since the money would allow the counties, many of them poor, to replenish desperately needed funds. Conservation activists take a different stance, noting that all five options call for more logging than the status quo, and logging is an outdated, non-diverse economic model. KBOO's Sam Bouman spoke with Morgan Lindsay, Outreach Director for Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands in Ashland, Oregon, for more on the O & C debate.

Congress sneaks amendment to criminalize boycotts of Israel into TPP Fast Track bill

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Fri, 04/24/2015
Legislation penalizing organizations for participating in the B-D-S movement against Israel, has been quietly attached to the Fast-Track Legislation that is winding its way through Congress.
The B-D-S movement, which stands for boycott, divest, and sanction, is a growing international effort began in 2005 to pressure Israel for its continued oppression and occupation of Palestine.
It utilizes economic tactics similar to those used against the Apartheid regime in South Africa.
The amendment, introduced by Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland, stipulates that, as a general principle of trade agreements, the US should discourage other countries from participating in any form of B-D-S against Israel for political reasons.

Josh Ruebner, policy director for the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, said his organization first became aware of the legislation by happenstance, and that it was embedded in the bill with virtually no public knowledge of its existence.

The legislation follows similar efforts in the House Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice to pass a trade agreement law that would require the US to discourage trade partners from engaging in any BDS activities. That legislation in the House is known as the United States-Israel Trade and Commercial Enhancement Act. KBOO’s Ethan Martin spoke earlier with Josh Ruebner about the legislation.

This week, on April 22nd, activists hung a massive banner from the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland.  The banner read, “U-W and SKANSKA HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR Hands.”

For more on tomorrow’s protest, KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg spoke with Justin, who is involved in the ‘No New Animal Lab’ campaign.

Thu, 04/16/2015
Top Congressional legislators reached a deal earlier today to introduce fast-track legislation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to Congress.
As the ranking Democrat on the Finance Panel, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden was crucial in reaching an agreement between Republicans and Democrats drafting the legislation.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership would be the world’s largest free trade agreement, involving the United States, Canada, Mexico, Vietnam, Japan, and seven other Pacific-rim countries.
It is heavily opposed by environmental groups, American labor unions such as the AFL-CIO, as well as human rights advocates.
The Oregon chapter of the AFL-CIO has staged multiple protests calling for lawmakers to reject the trade deal.
KBOO’s Ethan Martin spoke earlier today with Tom Chamberlain, the president of the Oregon AFL-CIO.
