Thirsty for Justice: The Struggle for the Human Right to Water

program date: 
Mon, 09/28/2015
Like the residents of Hood River County opposed to a planned Nestle water bottling plant in Cascade Locks, local activists in Mount Shasta, just south of the Oregon border, are trying to stop a Crystal Geyser bottling operation from opening in their community. A growing movement to stop the corporate takeover of water resources is coming together regionally, nationally and internationally. In the Pacific Northwest, activists are working towards a regional water alliance to share experience, energy and resources to stop new water bottling plants from opening up.

Paul Roland interviewed Vicky Gold, of Water Flows Free, a Mount Shasta resident who is helping organize an event on Saturday, September 26 featuring a full line-up of speakers and musicians. She has years of experience from fighting Nestle's attempt to open a plant in Mccloud, not far from Mt. Shasta, and offers a valuable perspective on the situation in Northern California.

'Nchee Wana Fishing People Against Nestle, Part 2

program date: 
Wed, 09/16/2015
150 to 200 tribal fishing people and Oregon residents gathered yesterday on the
120 tribal member, Gorge residents, and concerned citizens rallied in Salem calling on Gov. Kate Brown to protect Oregon's water from Nestlé.

120 tribal member, Gorge residents, and concerned citizens rallied in Salem calling on Gov. Kate Brown to protect Oregon’s water from Nestlé.

State Capitol steps to urge Governor Kate Brown to protect Oregon’s water, fish and communities from a water grab that would allow Nestlé to profit from bottling the public’s water in the Columbia River Gorge.

Last month, a five-day fast by Anna Mae Leonard helped galvanize a movement within the Warms Springs and three other Columbia River tribes. Leonard organized the rally as a platform for tribal members who depend on the Columbia River for sustenance fishing of wild salmon. Together, the tribes are taking a stand and demanding that the State of Oregon respect tribal fishing rights and put a stop to a Nestlé’s water grab in the Gorge.

“The Cascade Mountains have always been our home; we are still here,” said Warm Springs Chief Johnny Jackson. “Most importantly, is that spring: we were always taught, when we were young, to have great respect and care of our springs of the mountains. It is a part of us and we are a part of it. It is not for us to give away. It’s spiritual and sacred to our people. The White man calls it a usable resource and that’s all it is to them.”

The rally and Leonard’s fasting protest in August came after the Warm Springs Tribal Council sent a letter to Governor Kate Brown expressing their concern over both the idea of Nestlé bottling Columbia Gorge spring water, and the process the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has undertaken to make that water available to the multinational corporation. Warms Springs Tribal Council member Carlos Smith said “the Tribal Council unanimously voted yes to send a letter to both Governor Kate Brown and the City of Cascade Locks opposing to the water rights swap for Nestlé’s water bottling proposal.” The letter stated that the Tribe was not adequately involved in the process and that they view the State-led water rights swap as a threat to a water source sacred to their people.

Hundreds of tribal members agree with Leonard’s sentiments that, “The Transfer of water rights, inherently violates the Treaty of 1855 between the United States and the Four Columbia River Tribes.” The Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife’s application to swap water rights with the City of Cascade Locks would make public and tribal water resources available to Nestlé; it sets a dangerous precedent for future water resources in Hood River County and the state. “The tribes are supposed to have Senior Water Rights,” said Skeweacuks a Warm Springs tribal member. “We have to have enough water to sustain the fish species; the salmon runs.”

Fed up with the State’s process to make public water resources available to a multinational corporation, Wilbur Slockish, a Klickitat Chief said, “The People, the salmon and our natural food supply – we are trying to survive your economic policies. We are tired of being the invisible people.”

Alongside the dozens of tribal fishing people, local residents and representatives of local and statewide groups spoke and delivered over quarter million petitions to Governor Kate Brown’s office. The Local Water AllianceFood & Water Watchand Bark, a watchdog group for the Mt. Hood National Forest, delivered some 4,000 petitions and letters to the Governor while the SumOfUs campaign delivered 251,963 petitions signatures from across the globe calling on Governor Kate Brown to protect Oregon’s water from Nestlé.

Max Blumenthal speaks to KBOO about 'The 51-Day war'

program date: 
Wed, 07/01/2015
Last summer, during the 51 days of conflict that began when Israel launched air strikes on Hamas-controlled Gaza, journalist Max Blumenthal was embedded on the ground. His reportage followed the fighting and the deaths of more than 2,000 people, most of whom were Palestinian civilians, in what he called an "entirely avoidable catastrophe." In his new book, The 51 Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza, Blumenthal explores the conditions and deceptions that led to war.

Mauna Kea protests continue

program date: 
Thu, 04/23/2015
A four-week long protest which has halted construction of  the proposed TMT or Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea on the big island of Hawaii continues with several new developments this week.
On Tuesday activists took to the streets of Honolulu to bring their message to the centers of state and commercial power in the archipelago.
The thirty-meter telescope would be housed in a massive eighteen-story high structure atop the highest mountain in Hawaii.
It’s a project of the TMT Observatory Corporation, a joint venture of Institutions  from the United States, Canada, China, India and Japan.
There are already thirteen other telescopes sited on the mountain, which have also drawn opposition  from Native Hawaiians and environmentalists.
But this new, massive telescope has drawn the largest opposition to date.
Some 200 people continue to camp out on Mauna Kea and are drawing increased attention in Hawaii, on the continental United States and internationally.
A moratorium put in place three weeks ago by the company in response to the opposition has been extended twice.
This afternoon, the Board of trustees of the Office of hawaiian affairs, which had signed off on the project in 2012, had an emotional meeting to discuss the controversy, with  trustees speaking out strongly on both sides of the issue.
they plan to meet again on april 30 to fully discuss the issue and apparently will revisit their earlier decision.
On Wednesday Talk Radio http://kboo.fm/whythemountainastruggleforautonomydignit0, Paul Roland talked with Native Hawaiian filmmaker, journalist and activist Keala Kelly about the evolving situation.
Earlier  today he spoke with one of the Mauna Kea protestors, Kahookahi  Kanuha, who had come down from the encampment on Mauna Kea and travelled to Oahu for the protest on Tuesday.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott tries to keep rising sea at bay by not letting state employees talk about it

program date: 
Thu, 03/19/2015
As south Florida begins to sink below rising sea levels, the Governor Scott administration appears to be building a wall to protect itself from damaging information about the role that climate change is actually having.  His offices in Tallahassee, located somewhat inland, appear to be safe for now from harsh reality. 
Florida appears to be on the dangerous cutting edge of  denialism and the suppression of inconvenient truth. A climate of fear, insecurity and stasis seems to pervade agencies charged with environmental protection and regulation.
In this complete version of an interview done by Paul Roland for the KBOO News on March 18, we hear about the case of a Florida state employee who was reprimanded and put on unpaid leave for two days for speaking publicly about climate change. Roland interviews Jerry Phillips, Director of the Florida office of Public Employees for Environmental responsibility (PEER).
Barton Bibler is a long-time Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) employee who serves as Land Management Plan Coordinator in the Division of State Lands.
When attending a public hearing, Bibler was directed by his superiors to remove any hot button issues, especially references to climate change.
He was then given a letter of reprimand for supposedly misrepresenting that the “official meeting agenda included climate change.”
The employee was suspended for two days and then given a “Medical Release Form” requiring that his doctor supply his boss with an evaluation of unspecified “medical condition and behavior” issues before being allowed to return to work.
On March 18, PEER sent a letter asking the Florida state government to open an investigation into how Bibler was handled.

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz on KPFA's "Letters and Politics" program (not yet aired on KBOO)

program date: 
Mon, 02/09/2015
Radical Indigenous movement activist, feminist and scholar Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz talks about her powerful new book, An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States. The book reframes United States history from the perspective of the Indigenous peoples who were living here for millenia before the arrival of Europeans. For those who haven't yet made or attempted this perceptual and conceptual shift, her book  can serve as a valuable aid and guide. Now more than ever we need to radically re-examine the flawed and unjust foundations upon which this nation-state was built and continues to be maintained.

From the book's Introduction: "Writing US history from an Indigenous peoples' perspective requires rethinking the consensual national narrative. That narrative is wrong or deficient, not in its facts, dates, or details but rather in its essence. Inherent in the myth we've been taught is an embrace of settler colonialism and genocide. The myth persists, not for a lack of free speech or poverty of information but rather for an absence of motivation to ask questions that challenge the core of the scripted narrative of the origin story. How might acknowledging the reality of US history work to transform society? that is the central question this book pursues."

"This may well be the most important US history book you will read in your lifetime."--Robin D.G. Kelley, Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination

"An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States is a fiercely honest, unwavering, and unprecedented statement, one which has never been attempted by any other historian or intellectual."--Simon Ortiz, Poet and Professor of English and American Indian Studies, Arizona State University

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz grew up in rural Oklahoma, the daughter of a tenant farmer and part-Indian mother. She has been active in the international Indigenous movement for over four decades. From 1967 to 1974, she was a full-time activist living in various parts of the United States, traveling to Europe, Mexico, and Cuba. She is also a veteran of the women's liberation movement. Outlaw Woman: Memoir of the War Years outlines this time of her life, chronicling the years 1960-1975. After receiving her PhD in history at UCLA, she taught in the newly established Native American Studies Program at Cal State, Hayward, and helped found the departments of Ethnic Studies and Women's Studies. Her 1977 book The Great Sioux Nation was the fundamental document at the first international conference on Indigenous peoples at the United Nations in Geneva. She is the author or editor of seven other books, including Roots of Resistance: A History of Land Tenure in New Mexico. She lives in San Francisco.
