Toni Tabora-Roberts interviews Curtis Choy about his film "Manilatown is in the Heart".  A favorite at the DisOrient film festival in April, the film is a tribute to late poet and activist Al Robles. 

In the 1970s, Robles was an activist involved in the San Francisco I-Hotel struggle, a fight which is now burned into Filipino-American civil rights history.

After a decade-long protest, many low-income elderly Manong were evicted, effectively dismantling the last enclave of downtown San Francisco's historic Manilatown community.

"Manilatown is in the Heart"will show for one night only in Portland on Friday, June 26th at the Hollywood Theater.

Our planet and its people are in peril. Diminishing fresh water supplies, destruction of forests, polluted air, species extinction at an unparalleled rate, and a toxic petrochemical environment are all clear signals that things are going seriously haywire. And climate change, the impacts of which are already evidenced at an accelerating pace, threatens environmental devastation on an almost incomprehensible scale. Rising sea levels will overwhelm island states, low lying countries such as Bangladesh, and many of the coastal areas where the world's population is concentrated. Climate change will bring more disease outbreaks, including new diseases and variants of existing ones for which there is no treatment.

Healing our World

paul cienfuegosPaul Cienfuegos teaches that corporate rights are at the core of almost every environmental and social justice problem that we face. Corporate power grew immensely toward the end of the 19th century with the dismantling of legal restraints and the redefinition of corporations as "persons." As citizens, can we take back our power from these fictitious corporate "persons?"   Cienfuegos says, "Yes!"  And he tells of communities that are doing just that by going after illegitimate corporate authority and privilege.

 Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Fred Magdoff, co-author of "The Great Financial Crisis: Causes and Consequences".

In the fall of 2008, the United States was plunged into a financial crisis more severe than any since the Great Depression. As banks collapsed and the state scrambled to organize one of the largest transfers of wealth in history, many — including economists and financial experts — were shocked by the speed at which events unfolded. In this new book, John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff offer a bold analysis of the financial meltdown, how it developed, and the implications for the future.

A "Juneteenth" rememberance: confronting racism in Oregon

program date: 
Wed, 06/17/2009

June 19th marks the 144th anniversary of the landing of federal troops in Galveston, Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation and finally bring slavery to an end throughout the United States. "Juneteenth" has not only become a day to commemorate the end of slavery but to reflect on the African American experience - from progress made to challenges that remain. As Oregonians celebrate the 150th anniversary of their statehood, Juneteenth is an opportunity to look at how we are contributing - or not - to overcoming racism in Oregon.

Is there a T in Gay Pride?

program date: 
Mon, 06/15/2009

Portland’s Gay Pride wrapped this last weekend.  Despite the “unity” theme, at least one group chose this year to go their separate way.  Why did trans march organizers decide to postpone their event—renamed Gender (Free) For All—until August 1st? Do trans people really belong in the LGBQ community anyway?  Especially if they no longer identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual—or if they never did?

We addressed these questions and more. We were joined by three guests, including an organizer from the Gender (Free) For All; a local trans political activist; and a woman with Harry  Benjamin's  Syndrome
