Bo Brown

program date: 
Wed, 02/02/2011

On this episode, we feature excerpts of a 2-hour interview we did with Rita “Bo” Brown.

Bo Brown is most well known to us as a member of The George Jackson Brigade, a Seattle based revolutionary group. To learn more about the George Jackson Brigade in general, we recommend the recently published books by Daniel Burton-rose, Guerilla USA, and Creating a Movement with Teeth.

Rita "Bo" Brown, was originally from Klamath, Oregon, and moved to Seattle in the 60’s to find community she’d lacked in Klamath. She soon found lesbian bars, and political activists. She became radicalized while in prison for a “social crime”, and was reading the George Jackson book “Soledad Brother” when he was murdered in California, in 1971.

Why Fear the Arab Revolutionary Spirit?

program date: 
Mon, 02/07/2011

After the uprisings in Tunis and then Egypt, many commentators were hesitant to embrace the as democratic. In The Guardian, Slavoj Zizek calls out this hesitation and the sometimes racist rationale that backs it up as hypocrisy. What's going on in Egypt IS democracy, as as Zizek puts it in an interview on Al Jazeera "universalism at work," but there is nothing to fear unless you are part of the power elite.

Reese Erlich on Terrorism & the Media

Reese Erlich - Terrorism & the Media (lecture)

The use of the word terrorism by politicians and the corporate media is highly refined and selective. September 11 is the event that defines the term. Acts of violence by designated enemies are without exception categorized as terrorism. The perpetrators are labeled as terrorists. But when the U.S. carries out air attacks, invasions, coups, sabotage and blockades those are explained away as necessary actions in response to heinous provocations. So the discussion, such as it is, is about the terrible things done to us not what we do to them. If there is any criticism at all it is about tactics or poor leadership or lack of resources.
