Voices from 35th and King Drive : Para-dime shifts, Segment 1

3 months ago
Protesting racist policing has a long history in Chicago whose police department is under a Federal Consent Decree for its racist practices that city officials have condoned for decades by refusing to stop. Racial profiling, shooting, false arrest, torture, political assassination, false witness and intimidation mostly directed at black and brown communities. The 16 shot murder of Laquan McDonald by patrolman Jason Van Dyke and the attempted coverup by former Mayor Rahm Emanuel and States Attorney Anita Alverez united the community to remove them in a black lead campaign for justice and going forward community control of policing (CPAC). Yet following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis massive protest erupted across the city and drew people from across the the usual divides, so outraged were they that they could not remain silent. Major protest shut down the city on Saturday and lead to a curfew, the shut down of all public transportation serving the downtown district as well as the exits from the freeways, while police responded from one location to another with the results increasing the demonstrators resolve that "enough was enough". Subsequent and spontaneous calls for a demonstration would bring 400 or more people to intersections to "shut things down". The business district was choked, while Cook County Jail at 26th and California was ringed by car caravans demanding of Sheriff Dart that prisoners be released before they died from Covid-19. On June 3rd, Wednesday a car caravan, called by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, greeted Mayor Lightfoot in her north-side neighborhood at 7am. In the afternoon a car caravan was called to protest police brutality and demand community control of the police at the 35th and S. Michigan Ave police station in the heart of the historically black community Bronzville. People were gathering at 35th and King Drive for the caravan to start. They speak about what brought them out and of what they had seen.

Radio Curious: Elliott Norse – Trawling the Ocean Floor, Segment 1

3 months ago
Once, fishes as big as turkeys and sheep swam the seas. Now, most of their few remaining descendants would fit into a frying pan. Dr. Elliot A. Norse, president of the Marine Biology Conservation Institute in Redmond, Washington, believes that this radical reduction in the size and number of the world’s fishes comes not only from over fishing, the catching of fish at a faster rate than they can breed, but also from bottom trawling. Dr. Norse writes that bottom trawling crushes, buries, and exposes marine creatures like lobsters, crustaceans, clams, corals and sponges that live on or in the seabed, damaging or killing them. In August of 1999, Dr. Norse visited with Radio Curious to discuss the effects of bottom trawling, how and where it’s done, and some of the concerns and causes of global warming and the effects it has on the oceans. Elliott Norse recommends “The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinction” by David Quammen. Originally Broadcast: November 27, 1998

Sea Change Radio: Castle Redmond: Hope For Racial Justice, Segment 1

3 months ago
In his book "Lies My Teacher Told Me," James Loewen writes that "race is the sharpest and deepest division in American life." We recognize the peaceful protests that have emerged in the wake of the murder of George Floyd as a force for healing, and for addressing our nation's shameful history surrounding race. Millions of Americans of all ages, races, ethnicities, and identities are taking to the streets to support the Black Lives Matter movement. It appears that white America is finally waking up and acknowledging that being "not racist" won't undo the pervasive racism in our collective psyche -- rather, we must be actively antiracist. This week on Sea Change Radio, we welcome Castle Redmond, a senior program manager from The California Endowment to discuss why this moment feels different. He helps put the images of looting we're seeing on our TV screens into historical context, and we look at the places where the environmental and racial justice movements intersect.
