Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco speak in Portland
Aladdin Theater

Stop Fascism: Chris Hedges & Joe Sacco Talk About Resistance. A benefit for KBOO Community Radio. $20/ticket

Pulitzer Prize–winner Chris Hedges and Portland-based award-winning cartoonist and journalist Joe Sacco set out to take a look at the sacrifice zones — areas in America that have been offered up for exploitation in the name of profit, progress, and technological advancement. The story of that journey became the book “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt”, a critically-acclaimed union of graphic novel and searing indictment of global capitalism’s effect in places like Camden, New Jersey; West Virginia; Pine Ridge, North Dakota; Immokalee, Florida; and New York.

The portrait of misery, painted from post-industrial America and published in 2014, has not changed. Or has it? And how?

Join Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco as they discuss the mechanisms for resistance that exist and explore the current state of revolt in the United States.

KBOO Community Radio is proud to host this important discussion. This exclusive, one time only event is a benefit for KBOO Community Radio, and all proceeds go to one of the region’s longest running independent media outlets.

Joe Sacco was born in Malta, and lives in Portland, OR, where he makes his living as a comics journalist. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in journalism.

Stop Fascism: Chris Hedges Speaks in Portland
Aladdin Theater

Are you outraged yet? Since the November general election, human rights have been under attack and our communities of color are the first targets. Corporations have further infiltrated government to divert federal dollars into the pockets of a few. Paramilitary forces like ICE, radical right pundits, and hate groups have reinforced systems of division and control.

The US has a long history of white supremacy and disparity — and recently, more people have been uprooted from our imaginary past of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans.

KBOO Community Radio is proud to host Chris Hedges in a provocative look at the current state of revolt in the United States. Hedges will recount the US’s continuing history of domestic terrorism while outlining ways for communities to resist before it’s too late.

FREE SEEDS & PLANT STARTS to all attendees! Suggested donation: $7-10, with no one turned away for lack of funds! Filmmaker Q&A afterwards, with gardeners and beekeepers on hand to answer questions too. See you there! :) :) :)

From EcoWatch: Granted, there were fewer people and more open spaces then, but it's still possible to grow a lot of food in urban areas, especially with composting and enriched soil techniques. Toronto plans to supply 25 percent of its fruit and vegetable production within city limits by 2025 and a study from Michigan State University concluded Detroit could grow 70 percent of its vegetables and 40 percent of its fruit on 570 vacant lots covering 5,000 acres of city land. One patch of Detroit land where 12 vacant houses were removed to grow food has supplied almost 200,000 kilograms of produce for 2,000 local families, provided volunteer experience to 8,000 residents and brought the area new investment and increased safety.

Cities needn't be wastelands of car-choked roads and pavement. Incorporating food production into ever-expanding urban areas makes cities more livable and enhances the natural systems that keep us alive and healthy.

Investing in small-scale farmers can help lift over 1 billion people out of poverty – UN report. - an estimated 2.5 billion people who manage 500 million smallholder farm households provide over 80 per cent of the food consumed in much of the developing world. Credit: IFAD

KBOO's May 2017 Anti-oppressions Study and Action Group
KBOO Community Radio

We are mixing it up and doing something a little different this month and will be screening the documentary "Missrepresnettion" in our ongoing focus on Internalized Misogyny for this month's meeting.

http://therepresentationproject.org/film/miss-representation/

A discussion will follow.

Please bring something to eat to share if you are able!

See you all on Saturday, May 6th!

"Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media and culture contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America.

The film draws back a curtain to reveal a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see – how the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls makes it difficult for women to feel powerful and achieve leadership positions.

In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message we receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 33rd out of the 49 highest income countries when it comes to women in the national legislature. And it’s not better outside of government. Women make up only 4.6% of S&P 500 CEOs and 17% of directors, executive producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors working on the top 250 domestic grossing films.

Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists, and academics, like Katie Couric, Rosario Dawson, Gloria Steinem, Margaret Cho, Condoleezza Rice, Rachel Maddow, and Nancy Pelosi, build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken, but armed with a new perspective."
