Defending forests, obliterating dams, and organizing against genocide (that is also ecocide)

 

Defending forests, obliterating dams, replanting watershed, and organizing against genocide (that is also ecocide): Frann Michel hosts this Earth Day episode, which includes these segments:

Forest Defense

In this Earth Day segment of "Field Notes,” Sophie Smith speaks with Karen Coulter, director and co-founder of the Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project (BMBP). The discussion explores the critical ecological role of the mature and old growth forests on public lands to the east of the Cascades as “natural climate solutions” and BMBP’s decades-long fight to defend these vital ecosystems from commercial logging facilitated by the US Forest Service. Listen in to learn about how to support BMBP’s ongoing forest defense efforts this summer on the ground as a field volunteer. Visit www.bmbp.org to learn more.  

Hope In Your Hands

Selections from CMarie Fuhrman's April 5, 2023 talk at the Washington State University Visiting Writers Series, about the hopefulness of obliterating dams and replanting forest on the South Fork of the Salmon River.

Organizing with JVP-PDX

As the genocide in Gaza continues into its sixth month, activists and groups in solidarity with Palestinian freedom continue to organize for a cease-fire and an end to US military support for Israel. Journalist Kevin Foster talks with Zia Laboff, an organizer with Jewish Voice for Peace Portland. They discuss the role of Jewish people in the Palestinian rights movement, recent local actions, including the successful campaign to push the Multnomah County Commissioners to pass a cease-fire resolution, and approaches to some of the tensions and challenges in organizing.
