Radio Curious: Dr. Victoria Patterson – Native American Life, Before and After Europeans, Segment 1

2 days 18 hours ago
Cultures that have no written language pass on their histories through oral traditions. The stories are the way that social values and traditions are taught by one generation to the next. Animals often play a significant character role in these stories. In the Native American traditions of the northwest part of California, the coyote is a very popular character. Dr. Victoria Patterson, an anthropologist based in Ukiah, California, has worked with native peoples for over 30 years. She knows these stories, and she sees them as windows, allowing us to imagine how original native peoples of northern California thought and lived. I met with Dr. Victoria Patterson and asked her about the significance of the story where the coyote jumped off into the sky. Our discussion lead to a two-part program, originally broadcast in February of 1999. Dr, Victoria Patterson recommends “Deep Valley,” by Bernard W. Aginsky and “Under the Tuscan Sun,” by Frances Mayes. Originally Broadcast: February 16, 1999 and February 26, 1999

TUC Radio: Edward Said: Palestine and the Universality of Human Rights (Part ONE of TWO) , Segment 1

3 days 19 hours ago
As I’m preparing this archival program for rebroadcast at the end of June, 2020, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to announce his government’s annexation of major areas of the Israeli-Occupied Palestinian West Bank, including the Jordan Valley. Such an act would eliminate whatever possibility remained of creating a Palestinian state side by side with Israel which had been stated US policy prior to the election of Donald Trump. This is Edward Said's last major speech on Palestine, the war on Iraq and the Bush administration. On September 25, 2003, a message made its way around the world. Edward Said, Palestinian American, world famous professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, and fearless defender of the Palestinian cause had died of leukemia in New York City, far from the city of Jerusalem where he was born in 1935. In 1948 Said and his family were forced to leave Palestine for Cairo when the newly founded state of Israel took their ancestral home. Later Said came to the US, studied at Princeton and Harvard and went on to teach at Yale and Columbia. He was not only a renowned academic but also an eloquent spokesperson for Palestinian rights and sovereignty. Said leaves behind a treasure of writings including his most influential book, Orientalism (1978),as well as books inspired by his passionate advocacy of the Palestinian cause, including The Question of Palestine, (1979), Covering Islam (1981), After the Last Sky (1986), Blaming the Victims (1988), and Culture and Imperialism (1993).

This Week In Palestine: The Israelization of US Policing, Segment 1

5 days 1 hour ago
Policing in America is under intense scrutiny in the wake of continuing demonstrations and non-violent displays of rage over the shooting of unarmed Black people. The restructuring of policing and our understanding of safety and security are at the heart of that scrutiny. The militarized, discriminatory practice of policing which is geared to control society has not and will not provide security and safety for everyone in that society. How did we get to this warped concept of security and safety, and whom does it serve? We know whom it does not serve and we must find a way forward to create a just, safe, secure society for everyone. Who is fueling this militarized, discriminatory policing of America? Jeff Halper has meticulously researched the issue, and in particular the role Israel is playing in arming the security state. His book, War Against the People, is a must read and serves as the basis for an article he recently wrote on the intersection of policing in America and Israel. We lead this morning with the reading of Halper’s recent article we found in Mondoweiss. After this, our feature presentation which today is a conversation between British journalist Steven Sacker and Hamas spokesman Ghazi Hamad, who speaks from Gaza. The conversation was recorded in March and takes place on Sacker’s podcast, "Hardtalk." Sacker continually reveals his all-too-common ignorance about Hamas, Palestine, the Great March, etc.

This Week In Palestine: Ramzy Baroud on the Palestinian imprisonment crisis, Segment 1

5 days 1 hour ago
Ramzy Baroud's new book is These Chains Will Be Broken. He observes that almost all Palestinians are imprisoned in one way or another. Before this: the bullies are at it again, this time in a massive effort to shut down the International Criminal Court. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have experienced life in Israel’s prisons since 1967, as did many more in previous decades during the course of the ongoing Israeli military occupation. Yet rarely has the story of their experiences in Israeli jails been told by the prisoners themselves. Typically the Western media portrays them as "terrorists" while well-meaning third-party human rights advocates paint them as hapless victims. They are neither. This book permits the reader to access the reality of Palestinian imprisonment as told by Palestinian prisoners themselves — stories of appalling suffering and determination to reclaim their freedom.

Building Bridges: Black Lives Matter and Unions , Segment 1

5 days 23 hours ago
Pres. Carl Rosen, The United Electrical Workers Union (UE) says: “All Workers Must Stand Against Police Violence. Black Lives Matter. Defund The Police!” with Pres. Carl Rosen, who describes the UE as “a union that practices rank and file democracy, unity against the boss, solidarity with our allies, internationalism, and aggressive struggle” says, “we know which side we are on!” The protests that have swept our country since the killing of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police in May have put the issue of police violence front and center. Carl Rosen, UE Pres. says organized labor has a special responsibility to speak out on this issue for its members who have experienced violence and harassment from the police due to nothing more than the color of their skin. All workers who struggle for a better life are threatened when the police are used to violently suppress protest. We join the call to “defund the police.” What does it mean to defund the police? It means reducing police budgets so we can invest in the economic development and social services that are needed to make all communities safe and prosperous. We need more social workers, mental health professionals, child advocates, sexual assault specialists, and other workers who are actually trained to respond to the types of crises that all too frequently fall to police. The feasibility of such an approach is clear in the fact that nearly every other industrialized nation spends less on police, more on social services, and has lower crime rates. ************ Activists Demand Elections for a Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB), with Teeth Over Cops! with Black Lives Matters supporters and NYC Council Member Inez Barron Activists came together to demand elections of a civilian complaint review board with oversight of cops. Speaking outside of the New York Police Department’s headquarters in lower Manhattan, Black Lives Matter activists said moderate reform efforts are toothless unless police can be held accountable for misconduct by an elected, independent oversight board. “Defund the police, demilitarize the police, jail killer cops!” said New York City Council Member Inez Barron and New York State Assembly member Charles Barron New York State Assembly Member Charles Barron with protestors outside of One Police Plaza to announce the introduction of a new bill. A bill that would create an agency that would have more power than the Civilian Complaint Review Board. An agency that would have a bigger effect on policing in the city. Inez and Charles both introduced legislation that would abolish the CCRB and institute an elected Civilian Review Board, an independent prosecutor and a separate investigative body. The elected board would consist of 21 members. According to StopPoliceViolence.org, an advocacy group campaigning for an ECRB, the newly-elected board would be held more accountable by New Yorkers due to them being elected, the board would be more empowered to investigate and make binding decisions, it would establish an elected independent prosecutor and force the New York Police Department to fully cooperate with all investigations and decisions. Juanita Young, the mother of Malcom Ferguson, who was shot and killed by NYPD in 2000, said an independent prosecutor in City Hall is necessary. Young said filing a complaint with the current CCRB is useless. “For what?” asked Young.
