Protest and action

A message from Russell Means from The "Republic of Lakotah"

I find freedom to be the most important issue facing any human being today, because without freedom, then life is pointless. The more dependent you become on centralized power, the more easily you are lead around.

-- Russell Means

Promises Made--That Will be Kept

Promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.

When I ran for the KBOO Board in 2000, and recently was voted unanimously to serve on the present KBOO Board, I made promises that I intended and still intend to keep. My platform then in 2000 was the same as the recent one in answering the questions put to me by the KBOO Board.

My motive in coming to KBOO was never programming in terms of my own program. I am a teacher and lecture all over the world and did/do not need a megaphone. I am heartened, however,  by the support that we never solicited, but nonetheless got, from listeners to Mitakuye Oyasin in Russia, Italy, Turkey, Denmark and other countries.

Journalist John Ross on Revolutionary Mexico

John Ross – Revolutionary Mexico (lecture)

With a population of more than 110 million, Mexico is the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world. For many, particularly in the U.S. and Canada, it is a vacation getaway with beaches at Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Vallarta and “una cerveza mas, por favor.” Throw in a pyramid or two and that’s about it. The complex realities of the country escape most visitors. Mexico has a rich history of revolution and resistance to tyranny. But much of the news today is about gun battles and drug cartels. What are the prospects for revolutionary change?
