Protest and action

Circle A Radio on 09/21/11

Short Description: 
Anniversaries: Attica, Magdalene Asylums, and James Chasse.

Anniversaries give us an excuse to reflect on where we have come from, and where we would like to go, and to reflect on our values. The mainstream media and government used the commemorations of 9/11, for example, to remind us to be afraid and to promote the “war on terror”. Tonight on Circle A Radio we look at other anniversaries in September, to remind ourselves of the importance of struggle, fighting injustice, and continuing the work we do. We will remember the Attica Rebellion which began on September 9, 1971, the closing of the last of the Magdalene Asylums in Ireland on September 25, 1996, and the killing of James Chasse by law enforcement officers on September 17, 2006 in Portland.

With so many urgent situations, what's your priority for the US? Avoid letting fear be your guide.

Veteran activist Jodie Evans talks about "Disturbing Power the CODEPINK Way"

Jodie Evans – Disturbing Power the CODEPINK Way (interview)

Rocking the boat is never an easy task but you can accomplish meaningful things and have some fun along the way. Playing ball with the rich and powerful of course has its rewards. You’re in the golden rolodex. You get invited to all the right parties. People nod at you when you enter a room. Your name gives you entrée to inner circles. In politics the president or the secretary of state may even smile at you and call you by your given name. But all of that adds up to what exactly? Not much. That kind of fame is fleeting. Better to shake things up and fight for human rights and justice. Even if you don’t succeed every time you can look in the mirror and feel good about yourself.
