Circle A Radio on 09/21/11

Air date: 
Wed, 09/21/2011 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
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.

The Shock Doctrine: Author Naomi Klein's explanation of capitalism's use of disasters -- and the numb shock that accompanies them -- to carry out radical "free market" revisions. From Afghanistan to Iraq, from Guantanamo to the PATRIOT Act, from Katrina to the financial crisis of 2008, the post-Sept. 11 world has been one big application of the Shock Doctrine.

Growing up black in white suburbia

Black Girl in SuburbiaWhat does it mean growing up where your classmates and neighbors don't look like you? How does that shape your sense of self-identity? These questions go directly to the experience of a rising number of African American girls growing up in Portland's white suburbs. Can their experience help all of us better understand perceptions of ourselves, others and the community?
