Update on Homeless Vigil after 13 Days

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 05/07/2008

 

The homeless protest in front of city hall entered its thirteenth day today.
Over 70 homeless people have taken up positions around the building, and they say they aren’t going to move until the city either repeals the sit/lie and anti-camping laws, or find them a permanent place to live.
The Street-Access-For-Everyone, or SAFE committee, which is responsible for the sit/lie law, also held a meeting this morning—and while the protest was not discussed directly, the sit/lie law did become a matter of contention.
Patrick Nolen and Michael Buonocore of Sisters-Of-The-Road hosted a press conference after the meeting, to discuss the situation.
The SAFE committee has never had a member who is homeless--and now, without Sisters, it has no representatives from the homeless community at all.

Filmaker of"Uncounted" Looks at Election Discrepancies

As Oregonians prepare to send in their ballots for the May 20th primary election, it's worth asking whether the votes will be counted fairly.

In the 2004 election, there were numerous discrepancies and questionable results in many different districts and states.

States that used electronic voting machines were especially affected. 

In Ohio, democratic candidate John Kerry conceded the state to George Bush with only nine counties reporting results -- of those nine, all were showing Kerry to be ahead.

But few in the media have raised questions about the fact that Ohio was using Diebold voting machines, while the CEO of the Diebold corporation had publicly stated just months before that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president".

David Earnhardt is an independent journalist who has pursued the issue of election integrity in the 2004 election. 

His film, 'Uncounted', premiered in Portland last night.

KBOO reporter Ethan Scarl caught up with the filmmaker after the screening:

 

Voter Repression In Indiana Due to New ID Laws

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 05/05/2008

The state of Indiana held its election primary today, amidst allegations of voter disenfranchisement.
Last week the US Supreme Court upheld Indiana's voter ID requirements, which are the strictest in the nation.
Election observation groups in Indiana have noted that a large number of students and young people have been turned away from the polls for not presenting an Indiana state drivers license as ID.
Becky Jenkins is a student in Indiana:

Indiana's voter ID law has been widely criticized for preventing eligible voters from being allowed to cast their ballot.
There has never been a case of voter fraud by voters in Indiana, but Republican lawmakers pushed hard for the ID requirements, which mainly affect Democratic voters.

PDX Judge to Decide On Columbia Basin Plan for Salmon

The Bush administration has issued its fifth court-ordered plan for making Columbia Basin hydroelectric dams and southern Idaho irrigation projects safe for endangered salmon.

    The plan, released by the National Fisheries Service, outlines modifications to the dams, including changes in dam operations, expanded and improved hatchery operations, predator control and improvements to river habitat.

But conservationists and fishing advocates say this latest plan ignores science, economics, and the people who rely on the fish for their livelihoods.

Todd True is the Senior Managing attorney with EarthJustice:

The next step will be up to U.S. District Judge James Redden in Portland to decide whether the plan meets the demands of the Endangered Species Act.

Redden rejected the federal government's 2004 salmon plan, because it did not meet federal mandates for protecting salmon.

Inde Skies with Stumptown Earth First spoke to kboo from the protest:

 In response to the killing of the sea lions, activists have called for an end to the federal trapping program, which they say encourages vigilante hunters.

 

PDX Celebrates 40th Anniversary of Fair Housing Act with Bus Tour

April was National Fair Housing Month, commemorating the April 11, 1968 enactment of the Fair Housing Act by Lyndon Johnson. The Oregon Fair Housing Council marked the 40th anniversary last Wednesday with the first ever 'fair housing' bus tour of a US city.

The tour took participants through Portland, with a view toward historical housing discrimination.

Some of the forms that housing discrimination has taken include so-called 'urban renewal' programs, population displacement, and real estate profiteering.

Sherill Brown-Frost, Director of Member Services for the National Fair Housing Alliance, spoke to tour participants
While the bus tour did not cover a myriad of current challenges such as Brownfields, gentrification in North Portland or increasing homelessness downtown, it did point out concrete examples of where and when discrimination has occurred in Portland on the basis of race, age, color, or other factors
