Resisting Oil Terminals on the Columbia River

program date: 
Mon, 06/02/2014
Laurie Mercier talks with Eric de Place about proposed oil processing facilities in the Port of Vancouver (the largest ever in the PNW). The Tesaro terminals would bring in as much as half a million barrels of oil a day from the Alberta Tar Sands and other sites in North America. Eric reviews the recent history of both built and proposed oil infrastructure in Washington and Oregon. Eric explains how oil trains and infrastructure not only contribute to global ecological and economic volatility, but also how local ecologies and economies are systematically damaged by them, and how local communities are organizing against them. 13:05 minutes (11.98 MB)

Hart Noecker & Nick Caleb: Pedalpalooza, Gentrification, and Our Right to the City

program date: 
Mon, 06/02/2014
Joe Clement talks with Hart Noecker and Nick Caleb about gentrification in Portland and a Pedalpalooza ride* they're organizing to raise awareness and stimulate action around it. Hart and Nick discuss how they came to Portland, how they've seen it change, why they and others refer to this change as "gentrification", and why this is such a pressing issue. The promised online portion starts right after a 10 second musical clip at the end. In it they dive into a more open conversation about density, green capitalism and how the market distorts and undermines the aims of development, organizing working and poor communities to take, and more.

Phyllis Bennis on US Foreign Policy

program date: 
Mon, 06/02/2014
Bill Resnick talks with Phyllis Bennis about recent US foreign policy and policy attitudes toward Syria, the Ukraine, China and more. They start by looking at Barack Obama's recent foreign policy speech wherein he responds to critics, and how he validates a strawman that equivocates military presence with troop numbers and avoids the failure of international military interventions. They consider "unconventional" approaches to warfare and how it fails people in occupied territories. Phyllis points out the clever way that money for contractors has been deceptively "cut" from military budgets and transfered effectively to the State department. 16:10 minutes (14.8 MB)
