“When we say we want green anarchy, a stateless society, free and in harmony with Nature, people tell us that it’s a nice dream but it’ll never happen as ‘it’s against human nature’. The point is that it has happened – green anarchy was how all people lived for a good 90% of history… how some still live better than we do today. When we point this out, people start pissing and whining about ‘going back to the caves’ and getting protective about their TV’s, cars and other fruits of ‘Progress’, particularly Lefties and ‘anarchists’ who don’t know the difference and who think ‘Progress’ is some inevitable law of Nature and not part and parcel of State society and the self-serving elites ruling it. We’ll demolish those myths.”"
“In Western patriarchal culture, both women and nonhuman nature have been devalued alongside their assumed opposites - men and civilization/culture. Nature tends to be objectified, “controlled and dissected”; nature is an object to be exploited for “natural resources” (Merchant, “Dominion” 47). Women and nature are placed together in the “Not A” category, and are often seen as objects for exploitation, “things” to be used for the benefit of the “A” category - white, property-owning males. Ecofeminists - at least in theory - oppose all forms of domination, and reject “the notion that any part of the world, human or nonhuman, exists solely for the use and pleasure of any other part” - they reject power-over (Vance 133-34). Dichotomies and hierarchies , contemporary ecofeminists note, are alien to the natural world - nature is interconnections (Y.King 461). No individual or species is privileged in the world of nature: all eat and are eaten; all become sick and die in their turn. Humans are part of an interconnected continuum of life (Merchant, Earthcare 204). In light of environmental racism and sexism, many ecofeminists call attention to the fact that environmentalists, feminists, and those fighting racism and poverty are plucking at different straws in the same broom: “The global environmental crisis is related to the sociopolitical systems of fear and hatred of all that is natural, nonwhite and female” (Riley 473).”— Lisa Kemmerer, Sister Species, p 15-16
Guerrilla gardening is the sharing of ill-used land to support the communities and ecosystems to which that land rightfully belongs. Guerilla gardening is essential to growing a sustainable movement free from dependance on corporate systems.
If you have a spare moment, please log into Facebook and ‘like’ this page to keep Uprising on KPFA, Pacifica Radio’s flagship station.
“The official reason being given for Uprising’s removal is that other programs are already covering the issues we do. This is strange given that all good journalistic enterprises are expected to cover the issues of the day. On Uprising, we have strived for journalistic excellence and progressive values since our inception in 2003. Currently Uprising is one of the highest rated programs on KPFK in Los Angeles, where the program is produced. Over a dozen stations nationwide carry Uprising’s weekly syndicated digest.
We were informed this week that KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley was considering taking Uprising off the air. Since 2009, the weekly syndicated version of our popular LA-based radio program has been airing on Saturdays at 11 am on KPFA, the flag-ship Pacifica station.
If you think Uprising should stay on the air on KPFA, please contact their interim Program Director, Carrie Core at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510 848-6767 ext. 209. And please spread the word to others!
Transmitter Fund Launched To Keep Radical Radio Atop the Empire State Building:WBAI-FM, Pacifica Radio Since 1960, Tries to Survive Hurricane Sandy Forced Move
NEW YORK…. The iconic non-profit public radio station WBAI 99.5 FM has launched an emergency campaign appeal to raise half a million dollars in March and stop the possible shutdown of its operations and the loss of its transmitter atop the Empire State Building.
The campaign titled “The Transmitter Fund” aims to raise the funds needed to bring current the transmitter tower rent, which fell drastically behind in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
If sufficient funds are not raised in time, the station will lose its transmitter and may never go back on the air in New York City again. You can donate immediately by going to “The Transmitter Fund”.
WBAI 99.5 FM was already struggling with escalating rent costs and, like most non-profits, with declining revenue as a result of the economic downturn of 2008.
Hurricane Sandy forced WBAI from its broadcast facilities in lower Manhattan. Confronted with this situation, the staff and volunteers came together as never before, moving the station out of its former home in just a matter of weeks.
WBAI 99.5 FM, part of the Pacifica network, is the only alternative listener supported, non-commercial public radio station in New York City. It takes no underwriting or commercials and is subject to no censorship or sponsorship pressure.
“WBAI has served its listeners since 1960 with all of the major progressive, socially conscious, culturally important and revolutionary voices of the last half century and today. Every political and cultural icon and social movement from Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Abbie Hoffman, William F. Buckley, Angela Davis, Michael Moore and Chris Hedges to Iran-Contra, anti-fracking and the Occupy Movement have been on our airwaves,” says Interim Executive Director Summer Reese.
“Saving this radio station, with its incredibly strong signal, is important not just to public radio listeners in the tri-state area, but to the integrity of a free society which requires a free press and alternatives to mainstream corporate media outlets. The future of WBAI is actually bright, so long as we are able to overcome the present crisis. We are actively negotiating the purchase of a building, which will give us a permanent home that we own and significantly reduce our fixed costs on an ongoing basis” says Reese, “but first we have to save our transmitter and stay on the air.”
