This past week has seen developments in several Civil Liberty issues, including the on-air admission of Vice President Cheney to the authorization of torture in an interview with the ABC news. His admission has led to even mainstream media asking if Cheney is a War Criminial. An ACLU press release repudiated Cheney and the Bush administration's torture policy and encourages individuals to sign a petition to close Guantanamo.

In other torture news the US Supreme Court issued a rulingmoving forward an important case charging Donald Rumsfeld and Generals in the chain of command with responisbility for their detention and torture in US custody at Guantanamo. In a pre-trial hearing the case of Omar Khadr took a step forward as attorneys for Khadr revealed their intention to put on the witness stand a soldier whose testimony casts further doubt on the governments case.

Iranian Islamic Revolution 30 years after

Categories:
program date: 
Thu, 02/12/2009
Ambassador John LimbertFebruary marks the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran . One of the most significant events in the Middle East in the last half century, it dramatically changed the political balance of power in the region and created one of the US’s greatest foreign policy challenges. The revolution caught all the western intelligence agencies off-guard. The Shah’s monarchy, characterized by President Carter a year earlier as the Island of Tranquility , had disappeared and a revolutionary government unlike anything seen before had taken over the most valuable US ally in the Persian Gulf .   
 
US-Iran relations have regrettably gone from bad to worse over the past 3 decades. During this same period, Iran has gained great influence in the region and is a major player in all Middle East arenas – Iraq and Palestine in particular. Many analysts of foreign affairs today agree that having a normal relationship with Iran is critical if the US goal for stability of the Middle East is to be realized.

Transgender Awareness Month and Day of Remembrance

program date: 
Tue, 11/17/2009

Every year dozens of individuals are brutally murdered because they are transgender or simply perceived as gender variant. Rather than decreasing, the number of these deaths has increased in the last few years, possibly as a backlash against gay-marriage legislation.  In order to memorialize those who have died for their gender presentations, activists founded the Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20th.  This year, Oregon Governor Kulongoski proclaimed the day a statewide day of remembrance; and the entire month of November has been dedicated to transgender awareness.

In this episode of Gender Blender, co-hosts Jacob Anderson-Minshall and Laura Calvo spoke to the organizers of some of those events including:  Allison Cleveland, Executive Director of Eugene’s Gender Center and a key player in eliciting the governor’s proclamation; Natalia from Portland State University’s Queer Resource Center, which is sponsoring the local Transgender Day of Remembrance events, including a concert by trans musicians Katastrophe and Athens Boys Choir (aka Katz); and queer performer Peterson Toscano who will be presenting his one-man play, “Transfigurations—Transgressing Gender in the Bible,” Thursday, November 19th at the Epworth United Methodist Church, 1333 SE 28th Street in Portland.

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.

On January 26, Oregonians will be asked to decide how the latest chapter in the state's long-running tax wars will turn out. Opponents of two tax increases approved by the legislature in 2009 succeeded in collecting enough signatures for a referendum on what are now Measures 66 and 67. The former would raise the state income tax rate on those earning more than $125,000 per year while the latter would increase the minimum corporate tax. Supporters of the measures say vital public services are at stake. Opponents say raising taxes during a recession will only make matters worse.

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme court took another step in the long - and many say misguided - journey to granting corporations personhood under the U.S. Constitution. In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, a five-member majority of the court increased the ability of corporations to use their wealth to influence our electoral process. Recent polling shows that more than 75 percent of Americans think the ruling further weakens our democratic institutions and the power of people to govern themselves.

On May 9th 2010 Islamic Republic of Iran executed five political prisoners at Evin, Tehran's notorious prison. At least four of the victims -- Farzad Kamangar, Ali Haydarian, Farhad Vakili, and Shirin Alam-Houli -- were ethnic Kurds. The fifth victim was Mehdi Eslamian. 

Their court cases were heard behind closed doors. The work of their attorneys was constantly obstructed, or ignored altogether. Neither they nor the families of the victims knew about the executions until after they had taken place. Even the dead bodies of the victims have not been turned over to their families.

Kamangar's case, which attracted international attention, is particularly heart-breaking. He was 35 years old and married.

If you use computers and internet, chances are you use open source software. Whether its word processing with OpenOffice, browsing the internet with Firefox, or serving up web pages with Apache, there's an open source solution for just about any problem. But can open source help us build a better voting system?

Dave DeAngelis speaks with Greg Miller of the Open Source Digital Voting Foundation about creating an open source, publicly owned, and trustworthy voting technology for any U.S. elections jurisdiction.

We'll also hear a recorded talk with Howard Rhinegold, Professor at Stanford and Berkeley, about how open source software encourages collaborative thinking and development.

Lies, damn lies and export statistics: A conversation about the impact of free trade agreements on our communities

President Obama recently announced plans to push through the Korea Free Trade Agreement immediately after the November election. This latest agreement is part of the president's stated goal of creating new jobs through a doubling of the nation's exports. Fair trade advocates say the Korea Free Trade Agreement is just more of the Bush-Clinton trade policy that has resulted in local job loss, erosion of environmental safeguards and the transfer of more wealth and power to Wall Street.

These groups do not threaten the governmental establishment in a po...litical way, but still are subjected to mostly silent violations of the Human Rights.

Isn't it time we acknowledge health care as a right?  What could possibly make it alright for there to be a profit motive in health care?  Why should we endlessly capitulate to the private insurance industry?  Why do people go without essential preventative care, while the executives take home millions of dollars? And why have we put up with this for so long?

program date: 
Thu, 02/10/2011

Rethinking psychiatry: a conversation with Robert Whitaker about a more compassionate mental health system

Our treatment of those in emotional distress manifests itself everyday. Too many Oregonians struggling with mental health issues can be found heavily medicated and warehoused. Or, they are turned out onto the streets to become the victims of crime or institutional violence as in the case of James Chasse. This is an issue that goes beyond public policy reform. It is one that calls for a fundamental reexamination of the "broken brain" model of psychiatry upon which those policies are based.

With the pace of technology today, many of you probably have a perfectly good digital camera lying around somewhere, that you haven’t used since you got the latest model.  If that’s you, why not put that camera to good use by donating it to REACH youth programs?  REACH provides affordable housing for low-income individuals and families in Portland, and are planning some creative activities for this summer, and need as many usable digital cameras as possible, so kids who don’t have their own can still find self-expression through the art of photography. If you’ve got a (functional) digital camera to donate, call 503-501-5732.   reachcdc.org

Kevin Mannix promised voters in 1994 that his Ballot Measure 11 establishing minimum mandatory sentences would create certainty in Oregon's criminal justice system. While the measure tripled the state's prison population over 20 years, a new report by the state Criminal Justice Commission finds that Measure 11 not only failed to deliver certainty, it has cost the state billions of dollars while it shifting sentencing power from the hands of judges to those of district attorneys - a shift many see as dangerous.
