Against Nature: The Concept of Nature in Critical Theory

From the series Against the Grain C.S. Soong interviews Steven Vogel, author of Against Nature: The Concept of Nature in Critical Theory. 

It's a claim that has wide resonance on the left: we humans are alienated from nature, with profound consequences both for the way we think and for the health of the planet. But what if Steven Vogel is right, that it makes no sense to speak of being alienated from nature? According to Vogel, another kind of alienation is at play, one that we can and must address.

Report on Portland's Gaza Solidarity protest

program date: 
Tue, 12/30/2008

Occupation is a crime, killing children is a crime - was the chant that filled the downtown streets of Portland Tuesday afternoon, as hundreds of local residents gathered with handmade signs and megaphones to voice their outrage at the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza that have continued for the last four days.

In Arabic, protesters chanted, Palestine - maintain your dignity, Gaza, stay steadfast.
 
Israeli authorities say that the first stage of their long-planned assault is ending, and the second stage is about to begin - a ground invasion of the besieged and imprisoned Gaza Strip.



This recording contains excerpts of Tuesday's protest in Portland.  Voices include Ali Barakat, speaking via megaphone, Mazin Malik, a Palestinian-American who has lived in the Portland area for decades, Elijah Smith, who held a sign at Tuesday's downtown Portland protest reading 'Free Gaza dot org', Alison Weir, the director of 'If Americans Knew', David Evans, a Vietnam Veteran who stood on the corner during the rally with a large sign encouraging passing motorists to 'google gaza youtube', in order to see videos posted by besieged residents of Gaza to the video sharing website, and organizer Hala Gores.

An estimated 500 people attended the Portland protest, which was just one of dozens held worldwide on Tuesday, in solidarity with the besieged population of Gaza.  The protesters pledged to return to downtown Portland on Friday to throw their shoes at Senator Ron Wyden.
