Ani and Lyn discuss the criminalization of poverty in America

In an article for the Guardian, How America Criminalized Poverty, journalist and muckraker Barbara Erehreich states that "the viciousness of state officals to the poor and homeless is breathtaking, trapping them in a cycle of poverty" Does Portland Mayor Charlie Hales attitude that the crackdown on high-profile camping is about enforcing the law not criminalizeing the homeless pass the moral smell test? Are we are bothers keeper or just their slum land lord? Please join us dear listener, in the discussion.

Local poverty-rights activist, José Serrica, will join Ani and Lyn in this discussion.

Creating the world anew-- the spirit of revolution

Categories:
program date: 
Fri, 11/06/2009

Ani Raven Haines hosts a discussion of revolutionary thought and radical social change.

Remember, remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder, treason and plot

I see no reason the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

So goes the rhyme that commemorates the actions of Guy Fawkes, who attempted to blow up Parliament in 1605.  Fawkes was part of a radical Catholic group, that were seeking to displace Protestant rule.  In England, bonfires are lit on November 5th, and Guy Fawkes is still burnt in effigy, four hundred plus years after the original attempt. 

As social change activists, I think that one of our biggest challenges is not recreating the oppressive structures in the new world we make together.  How do we utterly change the dynamic of hierarchy and oppression, leaving them behind in the world falling around us?

Listeners called in with their experiences of engaging social change, and thoughts on creating the new world together. There is a lot to say on this subject, so let's continue this discussion online! Read my blog here, and participate in the conversation by leaving your comments.

Robert Jensen: All My Bone Shake

program date: 
Thu, 05/07/2009

Ani welcomes back long time activist, author and professor Robert Jensen, to Positively Revolting Talk Radio.

In Jensen's latest book, All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice, he argues that in a world racked with political, economic, cultural, and ecological crises, there is a spiritual emptiness that encourages further alienation.

Can religion be a tool with which we may create closer ties to all humanity and begin to create a just and sustainable society? What part can religion play to help us face with confidence the uncertainty of our lives. How can we overcome our addiction to hierarchy?

Jensen's writings explore the important questions: What does it mean to be human? What are our obligations to other people and the non-human world?

 

Robert Jensen is a professor at the University of Texas at Austin School of Journalism, where he teaches courses in media law, ethics, and politics. Jensen also serves as the director of the university’s Senior Fellows Honors Program of the College of Communication. Since joining the UT faculty in 1992, Jensen has published four critical books on media and power: Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity (South End Press, 2007); The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism and White Privilege (City Lights, 2005); Citizens of the Empire: The Struggle to Claim Our Humanity (City Lights, 2004).
