YouthSpeaksOut! is a 60 minute monthly program with high school students in Mendocino County, California. The hosts are the native students, from Covelo, California, who produced an amazing day of singing and dancing from native tribes from all over California. The hosts discuss what a Big Time is, how they produced it, and the affect on the Covelo community. There is also a stellar presentation by Maggie Steel, a native woman from Sacramento. And singing and chanting from the groups who performed. Really worth listening to. PLEASE NOTIFY ME IF YOU REBROADCAST
INTRO for YSO! "Drugs- Education and Legalization" March 4, 2012
We have grown up in an area strongly influenced by psychoactive substances, commonly called “drugs.” Mendocino County has been a leading producer of marijuana for more than 30 years. It is also an epicenter for America’s “war on drugs.” Recently it has been in the forefront of attempts to legalize the production of medical marijuana, which is legal through dispensaries in California.
YouthSpeaksOut! was be hosted by students from Willits High School. They discussed the Occupy movement and how it appears to them.
Today our topic is "Occupy!" The year 2011 has seen citizen uprisings around the world. In December 2010 a Tunisian man set himself on fire in protest of police corruption and ill treatment. This led to huge street protests and a revolution that ousted the president. This inspired the wave of insurrections that became known as the "Arab Spring."
