We read little in the mainstream press about secular movements for democracy in places like Iraq, Pakistan, and Egypt, but they are there--led by workers, women, and others. Bill Resnick talks with anthropologist Kamran Ali who identifies some of these democratic forces and how they have been stymied by US-supported dictators. Ali teaches at the University of Texas and is on the editorial board of Middle East Reports.
Bill Resnick talks with three members of Food Not Bombs, a world-wide organization that provides free food to the hungry and the foot-loose. He also talks with two people from the Iraq Body Count Project whose 125,000 flags are flying near Portland State, each flag representing 5 Iraqis who have died in the war.
The economy seems to be melting down--but it has nothing to do with the production of goods and services, only with high finance. This crisis is brought to you by business men who refuse to trust other busness men--because the all know they're all lying. This from Bill Black, formerly a Federal bank examiner and now a writer on business and finance. He talks with Bill Resnick in this illuminating interview. Black is the author of The Best Way to Rob a Bank is to Own One.
Denise Morris digs out a 1960 documentary film about the Wisconsin primary between Hubert Humphrey and John F. Kennedy and discusses how it changed the way we think of political campaigning. It's called Primary, and you can find it at the Multnomah County Library.
