Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water on privatization of water & challenging EPA LT2 rule

For over 100 years Portlanders have safely been drinking water from the Bull Run reservoir where it is treated organically and naturally, but in applying a "one-size fits all" rule the Environmental Protection Agency has mandated that the City cover its reservoirs and build filtration plants. The average Portland water bill could double in the next five years if the city complies.  Host Stephanie Potter will talk with Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water about how this issue relates to the trend of corporate influences toward privatization of water, and how Citizens for Portland Water is attempting to challenge the EPA ruling.

Culture Is Our Weapon

The guest is Damian Platt, co-author with Patrick Neate, of CULTURE IS OUR WEAPON: Making Music and Changing Lives in Rio De Janeiro.

Damian will talk about his work with the Rio-based NGO AfroReggae, a group who uses music and art to keep the children of Rio’s favelas out of the pervasive drug trade. AfroReggae was forged out of the 1993 police massacre of 21 people in one of the favelas. Founded by ex-drug traffickers, AfroReggae works to take young people out of the drug/gang culture and harness the ingenuity and creativity of their communities to provide positive alternatives for young people. It shows the side of Rio beyond the tans of Ipanema and the pageantry of Carnival - the Rio you won’t find in any tourist guidebook.

"Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Host Bruce Silverman interviews Alissa Hamilton, author of "Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Alissa Hamilton is a Food and Society Policy Fellow with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. She lives in Toronto.

Close to three quarters of U.S. households buy orange juice. Its popularity crosses class, cultural, racial, and regional divides. Why do so many of us drink orange juice? How did it turn from a luxury into a staple in just a few years? More important, how is it that we don’t know the real reasons behind OJ’s popularity or understand the processes by which the juice is produced?

Thu, 03/08/2012

 Host Tami Dean speaks with local artist, writer, illustrator and story teller Baba Wagué Diakité, who will be giving a lecture on Fading From the Past: Ancient Mali and Beyond and a workshop on Why We Tell Stories as part of The Natural Way: Indigenous Voices of the Earth and Spirit Council.  Larry Hawk is also present to talk some about the work of Earth and Spirit Council.

The lecture is Friday, March 9, 2012, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the PSU Native American Student and Community Center, 710 SW Jackson Street, Portland, Oregon. Donation: $10-20 requested. No one will be turned away.

The workshop is Saturday, March 10, 2012, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 1838 Southwest Jefferson Street, Portland, OR. Cost: $50 (Register athttp://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/227640)

Baba Wagué Diakité introduces the epic story of the creation of Mali from the union of the Buffalo and Lion spirits. Their child Sundiata Keita, considered insignificant as a frail child, survives to fulfill a prophecy that unites a vast region known as Mali. Retold for generations, this epic gives insight into customs, values and wisdom of historical West Africa. Diakité will discuss how this collective history informs present day life of Malians and their place in a global society.

Writer, illustrator, sculptor and ceramic artist Baba Wagué Diakité was born in Mali, West Africa. He spent his early childhood in the small agricultural village of Kassaro. There he tended sheep, helped his grandparents in their rice and peanut fields, and listened to their parables and folktales as guidance in life. Diakité grew up drawing, first for his own pleasure, then for schoolwork and finally for part-time jobs. He first learned claywork after meeting American sculptor Ronna Neuenschwander, whom he later married. After moving to Portland, Oregon in 1985 Diakité soon gained attention as a ceramic artist and sculptor.

Diakité has presented drawing workshops and storytelling sessions throughout the United States, including the Smithsonian’s Museum of African Art. He also gained recognition as a storyteller, and began writing children’s books as well as illustrating. His first children’s book, The Hunterman and the Crocodile, won a Coretta Scott King Honor Book Award in 1998.

Diakité’s workshop, Why We Tell Stories, will introduce participants to his home country of Mali and discuss the importance of storytelling as a tool for imparting knowledge, tell short stories, and then open up the workshop to a writing exercise entitled "Flexing Your Mind: Collaborative Storytelling". More information about Baba Wagué Diakité is available at www.ko-falen.org.
