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.
