Next, Occupy the Farm's Lesley Haddock shares the radical history of an occupied piece of farmland slated for commercial development in Albany, CA. Then, Jillian Pim in Ft. Lauderdale, FL speaks about how the anti-homeless ordinances that ban sharing food have driven her to undertake at three week long (and counting) hunger strike for justice.

An Hour with Larry Hamm, Relentless Human Rights Defender

We spend the hour speaking with Larry Hamm who is described as “a relentless advocate for African-American people and the cause of human rights for more than 30 years.” Larry is chair of the People’s Organization for Progress in Newark, NJ which he helped to found in 1983. His work focuses on education, jobs, health care, police brutality and issues that arise in the Black community. He is quoted saying, “But there’s a certain realization you come to about the tempo of social change. It’s not the same as the tempo in an individual life. It’s a much longer beat. And we just have to keep doing what we can to keep pushing the struggle forward.” He is a leading voice in the growing national movement to end racially-biased and violent policing which has been inspired most recently by the events in Ferguson. We talk about his life’s work, where he sees the movement and the work ahead of us.

Guest:

1lhLarry Hamm is a Civil Rights Activist, Humanitarian, and Lecturer. Lawrence Hamm has been a relentless advocate for African-American people and the cause of human rights for more than 30 years. Raised in Newark New Jersey, he attended public schools and emerged at age 17 as a forceful and articulate spokesperson for the educational needs and aspirations of Newark students and the community. He was appointed to the Newark Board of Education, making him the youngest school board member in the United States. While at Princeton University (Larry received his Bachelor’s degree there in 1978) Larry distinguished himself during the anti-apartheid movement by organizing student protests and calling attention to Princeton’s financial investment in apartheid South Africa. These protests, and the rising tide of public indignation, resulted in Princeton University’s divestment in the apartheid South African economy. Larry Hamm’s impact as a student activist at Princeton is chronicled in the documentary film, “Blacks at Princeton.” After graduation, Hamm returned to Newark and became active in local politics. He served as district leader and president of the 24th District Assembly. Larry was the founder and director of the People’s Energy Cooperative, a community fuel oil cooperative. He served as the Director of the Community Organization Program for the United Church of Christ Commission For Racial Justice. During 1986, Larry traveled with the Reverend Ben Chavis throughout the deep south to retrace the route of the 1960′s Freedom Rides. Chavis, Hamm and busloads of activists conducted voter registration drives in Alabama. Larry helped organize the People’s Organization For Progress (POP), an independent, grass roots, political organization that is active in the Newark and northern New Jersey area. As chairman, Larry has consistently worked toward building unity among community organizations. The struggle for quality education, employment opportunities, access to health care and against racial profiling, and police brutality continues through the efforts of its Chairman, Larry Hamm, and the activism of the organization’s members. Larry was received many awards, among them are “One Of The Most Influential Blacks in New Jersey Award” (City News) and “The Hope Shapiro Bread and Roses Peace Award” (New Jersey Peace Action).

FBI - Spying - US Citizen's.  It's a simple set of search terms.  If you search it every six weeks or so you will find no shortage of reasons to be pissed off.  This weeks tale includes an internationally know non-profit organization that is funded by "donations" from the top corporations in the world and how they hosted the current head of the FBI and his speech - Going Dark: Are Technology, Privacy and Public Safety on a Collision Course?  [Hint: it's a trick question] This from a guy who oversees a system called the Digital Collection System Network, which is connected directly into the switches for virtually all of the major network providers.  What does it say about our society when the second reason to monitor everyone, second only to terrorism, is consumerism? Market research, in order to figure out how to more effectively sell us shit we don't need.

When we recorded this show, we were in the process of getting some equipment updates in the studio, so you may hear an intermittent buzz during parts of the show. Even with the technical difficulties, the information provided is certainly worth hearing.

This year, the 113th Congress is on track to be the least productive Congress in 60 years. But days after an election that allowed the GOP to capture a majority in both houses, the first piece of legislation up for discussion and splashed all over mainstream news is the looming passage of the Keystone XL pipeline. The House has already passed it and Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu is championing it in the Senate as it is critical to her runoff campaign against Rep. Bill Cassidy. Even if it doesn't pass this year, it's a given for next year's Congress.

--And the supposed urgent reason for building the pipeline? Jobs! Pipeline supporters tout 42,000 jobs, but according to the U.S. State Department, only about 50 ongoing jobs will be created. On the other hand, tens of thousands of jobs are already being created in renewable energy: for example, 13,000 in Pennsylvania and over 30,000 in Ohio.

Join us as we talk about what would really create jobs: investment in renewable energy! We talked with Professor Mark Z. Jacobson, Senior Fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering about whether it was possible to transition to 100% renewable energy. Professor Jacobson specializes in computer modeling and analysis of air pollution, weather, and climate and the impact of energy technologies on the atmosphere. He co-authored a study published in the journal Energy Policy detailing how to convert New York State's energy infrastructure to one powered by wind, water and sunlight by 2030. He concludes that it is technically and economically feasible. This study follows two papers published in 2010 in Energy Policy by Jacobson and Mark A. Delucchi entitled, "Providing all global energy with wind, water, and solar power."
