The chosen 100 were and are the radicals of their day who challenged injustice wherever they saw it: the monopoly and corruption of big business, exploitation of workers, U.S. militarism, legal inequity for women, blacks and minorities, degradation of the environment, voter restrictions on African-Americans, the gross discrepancy between haves and have-nots, etc.

Greg Palast's Sept. 26th, 2012 talk at the Clinton Street Theatre

If you missed him at the Clinton St. Theater last week, here's a second chance to hear the latest dirt on the dirty art of politics Karl Rove-style from investigative journalist Greg Palast. Greg will share from his latest book, Billionaires and Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps, which just made the New York Times top ten best sellers list.

This time Greg is naming names and throwing a lot on the "voter ID" scam being pushed by Rove and his billionaire friends to electorally cleanse black people, hispanics, soldiers serving overseas and other potential Democratic voters.

Fighting the Fluoridation of Portland's Water Supply

On September 12th, the Portland City Council voted 5-0 to add fluoridating chemicals to our Bull Run water. This is a highly contentious issue, as Portlanders have already rejected forced fluoridation three times at the polls.

Joe Meyer hosts a program in two parts:

First he speaks with Howard Patterson, MEM (Masters Degree in Environmental Management), and Jeff Fryer, PhD in fisheries, about the impact of fluoridating chemicals after they go down the drain.

In the second part of the show he interviews Kimberly Kaminski, Executive Director Oregon Citizens for Safe Drinking Water, who is working on a referendum to reverse the City Council decision.

Architects and engineers for 9/11 Truth

This Tuesday marks the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attacks that resulted in thousands of deaths and ushered in an era of prisoner torture, loss of civil liberties and an endless war on terror. And yet, inconsistencies about the official explanation of the attacks themselves have never been adequately addressed by public officials. On September 11th at 7 pm, KBOO hosts a local representative of Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth who will address some of these ongoing inconsistencies and share information about local informational events.
