Positive coverage of LGBT issues and events was non-existent in Portland's mass media until 1970 when the alternative paper, Willamette Bridge, began printing some articles. The next year, Oregon's first specifically gay newspaper, The Fountain, was launched. Some Portland LGBT publications that followed included NW Gay Review, the Oregon Gay Rights Report, The Northwest Fountain, Cascade Voice, Rag Times, Just Out, Lavender Network and PQ Monthly. These publications and others helped organize Portland-area LGBT people in their attempts to build community, gain equality, counter anti-gay political measures, and respond to AIDS.

All our panelists were involved in one or more of the above publications.

Rupert Kinnard's extensive career in publication design began with Just Out as one of the original staff members where he helped the publication win the National Gay Press Association award for best overall design in 1983. In 1996, while working as art director for the Skanner, Rupert won an award for best graphic and typographical excellence by the West Coast Black Journalist Association.

Renee LaChance covered lesbian events as the women's editor for The Northwest Fountain and served as the editor of The Cascade Voice and was co-founder and publisher of Just Out. Pride Northwest has presented her with two awards: the 2000 Spirit of Pride Award and the Pioneer Award both for her work with Just Out.



KBOO Receives Grant to Investigate ALEC Ties to Oregon Legislation

Portland, 04.02.2014 23:08

KBOO Receives Grant to Investigate ALEC Ties to Oregon Legislation
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Portland, OR - KBOO Community Radio 90.7 FM (  http://www.kboo.fm) has been awarded a five thousand dollar grant from the Fund For Investigative Journalism (FIJ) to conduct an investigation of Oregon legislation which has been influenced or created by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

With this grant, KBOO volunteer investigative reporters will review Oregon state legislative activities to uncover ALEC influences on bills introduced in the Oregon state legislature between 2011 and 2014. KBOO investigative reporters have already, through their research, discovered direct links between three pieces of Oregon legislation, including the so-called 'Oregon GMO Protection Bill' passed as part of the special session in December 2013.

ALEC is an organization consisting of state legislators and corporate representatives, whose aim is to introduce legislation at the state level to advance the principles of free-market enterprise, limited government, and federalism.

The resulting data will be broadcast to KBOO's listenership through audio reports, a special section on the KBOO website  http://www.kboo.fm, and included in a publication by the Center for Media and Democracy.

No more NAFTA ? 20 Years is Enough!


This is a call to action for communities throughout Mexico, Canada and the United States to join together on January 31, 2014, and say "ENOUGH!" to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other corporate "trade" deals.

RELATED PIMC POST: BR>
Well, there was no giant sucking sound caused by an immediate job loss after Clinton won the election and NAFTA was passed in 1994; but since then NAFTA has caused the destruction of hundreds of thousands of good middle class manufacturing jobs in the US that were sent to Mexico, causing the erstwhile holders of those jobs in the US to be displaced to lower class service jobs.

The so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, as secret as it is, is apparently little more than another trade agreement among nine nations, including the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, Vietnam, Peru and others, and most likely will produce the same results in the US as NAFTA, hollowing out even more middle class manufacturing jobs that have survived in the US.

According to capitalistic economic theory, free trade raises [...]

Immigrant Detainees Struggle for Rights at South Bay

Boston, 03.02.2014 23:06

This interview is reposted from Prison Action News 7.1 On October 3rd, 2013, approximately 40 detainees at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center at Suffolk County House of Corrections (South Bay) in Dorchester launched a hunger strike over poor health conditions, among other issues. Organizers in the ICE section, which holds about 200 immigrants, delivered a letter to the prison administration demanding officials "improve food safety [...], equalize access to programs and services [...], and support visitation rights. Detainees then launched a public campaign on September 26, with dozens of supporters rallying outside the prison, and threatened a hunger strike. Following the demand delivery, prison officials held a whole-unit meeting, promising to address the prisoners’ grievances. Prison administration, however, changed little, spurring detainees at all three ICE units in South Bay to go on hunger strike for three days. According to an outside supporter working with the detainees in their struggle, “The formidable power and solidarity built by the united detainees at South Bay has both forced ICE to address many demands and further exposed the inhumane nature of immigration enforcement in the US. Following the hunger strike, at least two detainees were released from detention and at least one released from solitary confinement. Some improvements in sanitary conditions have occurred and conversations for further progress are taking place. Meanwhile though, detainees continue to face retaliation and insufficient access to support, as well as continued sanitary issues.” In recent years, prisoners at South Bay have complained about sanitation, over crowding, and other issues. Many detainees in the ICE section have ulcers from H. pylori bacterial infections, caused by poor sanitation. In 2010, women prisoners filed grievances and asked supporters to host a phone blitz to prison officials after South Bay served inmates food contaminated with maggots and rat feces, and refused to address massive flooding of inmates’ cells. The following is an interview with an anonymous Haitian worker and father, currently unemployed and living in Boston, who was detained in the ICE detention section of South Bay in the months before the hunger strike:

Lawsuit Against Santa Cruz Animal Testing Facility Gains Support

In January 2013, Animal Legal Defense Fund filed a lawsuit on behalf of the organization Stop Animal Exploitation Now, using the California state anti-cruelty code against an animal testing facility known as Santa Cruz Biotechnology.

The Kelly Thomas Protest in Fullerton

LA, 23.01.2014 04:18

Saturday's demonstration drew about 200 people to demand justice for Kelly Thomas, a schizophrenic homeless man who was beaten to death by two police officers. Out of 200 protesters, there were 10 arrested. Two for vandalism, including a blond woman who allegedly attacked a CBS camerawoman. The 7 remaining people were arrested for refusing to disperse the scene. Officials claimed they did everything possible to accommodate the protesters, but eventually, the manifestation turned violent heading into Saturday evening.

A CBS reporter, along with a camerawoman, arrived at the scene. Protesters who were affected by the death of Thomas, were offended because the CBS reporter had taken pictures of the Anarchy symbol spray painted along the walls of the Fullerton Police office. People felt that mainstream news was not contributing into reporting the facts. There had been a few protesters who yelled: "The media is lie! Tell the fucking truth!"
