..we have many advantages over the Nicaraguans of 1972.  We can see the earthquake slowly worsen, over time.  We have open communications networks, at least so far, and we have the option of nonviolent revolution.  One option we do not realistically have: the option to remain passive in the face of global ecosystem destruction, vicious and antidemocratic imperial occupations, millions of US citizens in jail, millions of US kids without a future or even a decent meal, racist apartheid in our streets, schools a

Squatting Ban in the Netherlands

For the last three years a ban on squatting has been in preparation in Dutch politics. A new act that is to ban squatting in the Netherlands passed through parliament on October 15th. Despite strong critique from the High Court, the union of city councils and even the Amsterdam police force, the christian/rightwing majority in The Hague is pushing this law through. Currently the senate still has to vote on the new act, but given the same majority of parties that voted in favor in parliament also exists in the senate, odds are by January 1st 2010 all squats in the Netherlands will be up for eviction.

Press**Watch: revolution for the halibut

Categories:

Ten years ago --plus a couple of weeks or so--I was standing outside the jail in downtown Seattle, screaming my head off.  I was screaming in unison with a thousand other people, forming words to communicate with the protesters who had illegally been shoved inside the jail.  I doubt it worked in terms of comprehensible communication, but it did get one message across--that there was massive solidarity outside that jail.  The jailed protesters could hear us, and knew we were out there with our unshakeable determination.  And the jailers knew it, too.

By the way, when I say the

Lakota Nation: Two Years of Secession

program date: 
Wed, 12/16/2009

December 21, 2009  marks the second anniversary of the announcement that  the Lakotah Nation was unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States.

Garry Rowland from Wounded Knee was one of the delegates that made the trip to Washington DC. He said, at the time quote "Today is a historic day and our forefathers speak through us. Our Forefathers made the treaties in good faith with the sacred Canupa and with the knowledge of the Great Spirit. They never honored the treaties, that's the reason we are here today."

Voices from the Edge: What's behind Oregon's domestic violence murders-suicides?

program date: 
Thu, 12/10/2009

Fourteen Oregonians died last month in five murder-suicides and one attempted murder suicide. Why this sudden outbreak now of men using guns to murder their spouses, ex-spouses and themselves when domestic violence homicides in Oregon have been on the decline? In 1997, 22 domestic violence homicides took place in Multnomah County alone. In recent years, the state average has been eight murder-suicides a year. Is it the economic climate, a lack of social services, or deep-rooted cultural issues?

This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Jennifer Warren, LCSW, a counselor with Portland's Men's Resource Center/Women's Counseling Center since 1998. She specializes in domestic violence intervention and recovery, and has worked extensively with men and women arrested for domestic violence. Join us in this discussion about what's behind domestic violence murder-suicides, how the problem is being addressed and what needs to be done to stop the violence.
