Twenty-seven homeless people sat down out side city hall last night, and they say they plan to stay there until city government finds somewhere for them to live.

The sit-in was started last Friday as a protest against the bridge sweeps being conducted by Portland police.

The areas under the Steel and Burnside bridges have long been among the few safe places for the homeless to sleep, but recent harassment by Portland police and private security has driven many of them out.

           KBOO’s Kyle Burris went to the Sit-in, and brings us this collection of voices recorded this afternoon:

Palestinian Children's Advocate Dead in Texas: Update on Riad Hamad

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Sun, 04/27/2008

Riad Hamad was an outspoken advocate for the rights of the Palestinian people, and the founder of the Palestinian Children's Welfare Fund. He spent his own money from his salary as a teacher to send shipments of school supplies and medicine to children in Palestinian refugee camps. Despite the fact that Hamad's body was found bound and gagged, police have declared his death a suicide. James Mason is with the Austin Police Department. Less than a month before his death, Hamad emailed friends saying that the FBI had raided his home and taken more than fifty boxes. He also reported receiving death threats by phone around the same time. Eric Vasys is a representative of the local branch of the FBI: Although local law enforcement appears to have little interest in the circumstances surrounding Hamad's death, others in the community, including the Director of the Islamic Center of Greater Austin, Dr. Ibrahim Dremali, have questioned the official line that the death was a suicide. Dremali told an Austin radio station that police did not call the Islamic Center, as they normally do when a Muslim is killed or found dead, in order to ensure that proper burial rituals are followed. In this case, Dremali said, police conducted a full autopsy without the family's consent, before he, as the head of the mosque, was allowed access to the body. Dremali said that the body was in terrible shape - bruised and cut all over, and that the back of the skull had been bashed in, and the brain removed. If it turns out that Hamad was indeed assassinated for his support of the Palestinian cause, he would not be the first to be killed in the US for that reason. The Jewish Defense League, or JDL, has been listed as a terrorist group by the US government since the 1970s, when the group bombed the office of impresario Sol Hurok, killing his receptionist. The next year, Jerome Zeller, an American JDL member, was indicted on charges of planting the bomb at Hurok’s office. He moved to Israel to escape prosecution, and when the US government attempted extradition, he was told by the Israelis that Zeller was considered a 'national hero', and they would not agree to his extradition. Zeller was later reported living in the occupied West Bank among militant settlers. In 1985, the JDL was found to be responsible for the murder of Alex Odeh, 37, regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. I asked Eric Vasys of the Texas branch of the FBI if they had considered the possibility of JDL involvement, especially considering the death threats that Hamad had received: For KBOO News, I'm Jenka Soderberg.

Environmental Chemicals and Obesity Connection

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/24/2008

Recent research is connecting chemical exposures to the rising rates of obesity.                

In a forum sponsored by the Oregon Environmental Council, Bruce Blumberg, Associate professor of development and cell biology, visited portland to discuss his research on the subject.

Increasing numbers of studies suggest that minute exposures to certain chemicals can pre-program  children to be obesity-prone from birth.  These chemicals, known as obesogens  interfere with gene expression at critical times in development.

Blumburg spoke on how our hormones affect how we gain weight and specific chemicals being identified to affect these hormones.

  That was Bruce Blumberg speaking on obesity caused by exposure to chemicals.

Blumberg was speaking as part of the Oregon Environmental Council’s Healthy Environment Forum series, which aims to link some of Oregon’s most difficult environmental and health challenges.

Haitians Hungry: Paid France 20 Billion Dollars

Thu, 04/24/2008

 

The International Monetary Fund said on Friday it was working with donors to review Haiti's need for more aid to deal with soaring food prices.  The food crisis recently sparked food riots in the Caribbean country.

But while the economists in the International Monetary Fund are trying to figure out what is causing the crisis in Haiti and around the world, those familiar with Haiti's history say the reasons behind the food crisis are very clear.

Seth Donnelly with the Haiti Action Committee just returned from a week-long delegation to Haiti.

That was Seth Donnelly with the Haiti Action Committee, talking about some of the origins of the current food crisis in Haiti.

From the time of its independence in 1804 until the 1940s, Haiti was forced to pay yearly reparations to its colonizer, France.

These reparations were compensation for the profits France would have made through the continued enslavement of the Haitian people.  The payments made by Haiti to France  totaled 20 billion dollars.       

 

PDX Copwatch: on Use of Deadly Force

Michael Schrunk, the District Attorney for Multnomah County, held several supposedly public hearings last week. 

The focus of the hearings was a proposed policy on the use of deadly force by the Portland police department. 

Although the topic is one that usually raises heated debate among Portlanders, almost no one attended the hearings.

According to Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch, the reason for the low attendance was that the District Attorney's office gave very little public notice of the hearings:

KBOO Radio got notice of the hearing just hours before it was supposed to take place.  Some Media Outlets got no notice at all.

The District Attorney's office did not return phone calls from KBOO Radio before this newscast.
