Treasures from the Vault: 1962 recording of Malcolm X debating Bayard Rustin on Integration versus Separation.

Bayard Rustin is perhaps one of the most understated leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. He helped with the formation of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) in 1942, which was conceived as a pacifist organization based on the writings of Henry David Thoreau, and modeled after Mahatma Ghandi’s non-violent resistance against British rule in India.

Short Description: 
Why an austerity program is misguided and what really works to make our economy strong
THE POLITICS OF AUSTERITY Governments around the world have characterized spending as reckless wastefulness that has made the economy worse. They have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts--austerity--to solve the financial crisis. But the global turn to austerity, or the policy of reducing domestic wages and prices to restore competitiveness and balance the budget, is harmful to both governments and individuals. In this special program we hear from a variety of scholars about the dangers of austerity and the need to expand growth and opportunity with stimulus programs.

Anniversary of the death of James Chasse

September 17th, 2008 is the second anniversary of the death of James Chasse Junior, Jim Jim, an early fixture in the Portland Punk Scene, a schizophrenic man living independently in Downtown Portland, and the victim of a brutal and fatal police beating.
Two years ago James Chasse was attacked and beaten to death by Multnomah County Sheriff deputy Bret Burton, Portland Police officer Christopher Humphreys and Portland Police Sargent Kyle Nice. on NW 13th and Everett before a dozen eyewitnesses. Chasse was not suspected of a crime, he had not committed a crime, and had no criminal record. The officers beat him, kicked him, tasered him repeatedly, and broke 17 ribs and his shoulder.

Chasse was sent by paramedics to jail, where the Jail nurses refused to admit him. He died en route to a hospital in the back seat of a police car driven by the same officers who had earlier beaten him.

The Multnomah County medical examiner ruled that Chasse died of blunt-force trauma to the chest, but declared the death “accidental.” A grand jury later cleared the officers of criminal wrongdoing. The officers involved are all back on duty.

This interview is with Jason Renault of the Mental Health Associaton of Portland, and film director Brian Linstrom , about James Chasse, and the film project about his life, called Alien Boy.
It also includes excerpts from the Public Memorial Service held for Chasse in October, 2006.

The film’s title comes from a song written about Chasse in 1979 by his friend, Greg Sage, lead singer of the seminal Portland punk band, the Wipers. He was also the subject of the song Nothing to Fear by Portland’s first all female punk band, the Neo Boys.
