On Tuesday, February 24, the Washington County Board of Commissioners votes unanimously to proceed with a plan to close the last two public health clinics in the county and move those services to non-governmental providers. Health and Human Services director Marni Kuyl says the goal of the plan is to expand primary care to uninsured, low-income patients. The plan has proven controversial however, both in content and process, with many members of the medical community as well as advocates for farm laborers and immigrants fighting against the closures. KBOO reported on the opposition to the plan back in September.

Stop the TPP! protest outside Senator Ron Wyden's house

Labor, environmental, and community rights groups across the country, including here in Portland, are in the midst of a week of activism to bring attention to efforts by some U.S. senators to fast-track the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership through Congress.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, is a NAFTA style trade agreement between the U.S. and eleven other nations circling the Pacific Ocean, and would affect roughly forty percent of the world’s economy.
All negotiations shaping the TPP have taken place in highly secret meetings, with virtually no transparency or input from the public or non-corporate advocacy groups.
