When Two Worlds Collide

Directed by Heidi Brandenburg, Mathew Orzel
United States, 2016, 103 mins., Spanish

Brandenburg and Orzel’s stirring film takes us to the heart of a tense and controversial battle between Peruvian leaders invested in extracting natural resources from the Amazon, and indigenous activists equally determined to protect their homes and a fragile ecosystem. As the government passes legislation that enables opening the rainforests to exploitation, indigenous leader Alberto Pizango makes an impassioned stand to stop the extraction of oil, minerals, and gas that will forever change the land. Sparking one of the largest public protests in Peruvian history, Pizango is accused of inciting violence and exiled. As visions bitterly collide, environmental destruction hangs in the balance. Winner of the World Cinema documentary prize for best first feature at Sundance Film Festival.

City of Weird: 30 Otherworldly Portland Tales (Forest Avenue), edited by Gigi Little, conjures what we fear: death, darkness, ghosts. Set in Portland, Oregon, these 30 stories blend imagination, literary writing, and pop culture into a cohesive weirdness that honors the city’s personality, its bookstores and bridges and solo volcano, as well as the tradition of sci-fi pulp magazines. Little will be joined at the event by contributors Mark Russell, Brigitte Winter, Rene Denfeld, and Dan DeWeese.

If you can pull yourself away from watching the Presidential horse race, we have a something else to peak (or pique) your interest.  EJAG and the First Unitarian Church are sponsoring a Ballot Initiative/Referral review.

​We will have pro and con representatives from each side of 4 different items which will appear on your ballot:
  • ​Measure 97, the Better Oregon measure.  This is the tax measure that would tax C-corporations with sales over 25 million dollars a flat 2.5 percent of sales over 25 million.

  • ​Measure 98, The High School Graduation measure.

  • ​Measure 26-179, a city of Portland mesasure aimed at  raising $258 Million for affordable housing development

  • ​Measure 26-184, a Multnomah County measure to limit campaign contributions and require that political ads identify their funding sources.
​We will take pro and con testimony from both sides of each issue followed by a Q&A on the issues.  At the end of the evening if time is available we will have an open discussion on other issues (not candidates) on the ballot.
Mounting scientific evidence confirms what many conservationists have suspected for some time – free-ranging cats are killing birds and other animals by the billions. Peter P. Marra and Chris Santella’s Cat Wars: The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer (Princeton) tells the story of the threats free-ranging cats pose to biodiversity and public health throughout the world, and sheds new light on the controversies surrounding the management of the explosion of these cat populations.

Do Not Resist

Directed by Craig Atkinson
United States, 2016, 73 mins., English

Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Tribeca Film Festival, Do Not Resist starts on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown and offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and glimpses into the future of increasingly militarized forces. From a ride along with a South Carolina SWAT team, to a look inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence,” to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of armed-combat equipment, a picture emerges of a future of high-end weapons and battlefield tactics in communities large and small.

Walt McRee, chair of the Public Banking Institute.

The too-big-to-fail banks that dominate the American banking system have virtually unchallenged control in financing the future fiscal prospects of America’s cities, counties and states. Funding municipal needs has too often relied on exploitive funding mechanisms that relegate public interest to the hands of powerful private banking interests.

But now, for the first time in almost 100 years, many American cities and states are considering a dramatic reversal of this situation with the creation of publicly-owned public interest banks.

How can we retain control of our tax dollars to invest at home instead of sending it off to Wall Street?

Join Walt McRee, Chair of the Public Banking Institute, for a discussion of how a public bank of Portland could free up enormous new financial resources to build the Portland we all want with the money we already have.

Doors open at 6:30
Admission: $5-20 donation requested; no one turned away for lack of funds

Reece Jones’s Violent Borders (Verso) is a major new exploration of the refugee crisis, focusing on how borders are formed and policed. Forty thousand people died trying to cross international borders in the past decade, with the high-profile deaths along the shores of Europe only accounting for half of the grisly total. Jones argues that these deaths are not exceptional, but rather the result of state attempts to contain populations and control access to resources and opportunities.

Vietnam veteran S. Brian Willson paid the pricefor peace as he was run over and nearly killed by a military train during a non-violent protest in 1987. Since then, he has not stopped calling attention to the US government's defiance of international law through waging endless illegal wars. PAYING THE PRICE FOR PEACEexposes the truth about the United States' addiction to war and the lies it perpetuates in order to wage ongoing violence. The film features the voices of other high-profile antiwar activists, including many military veterans.

The "Great Recession" financial crisis of 2007/8 brought forth the need for Americans to examine the financial institutions which came to negatively impact Americans, increasing the inequities of American society as well as the divide based on race. That examination begun with a critical look at the role of the too-big-to-fail banks and a desire to develop financial institutions which support the needs for local financing of local needs, separated from the profit seeking activities of the too-big-too-fail banks.

Thus a movement to form public banks was reborn. The movement today focuses on the formation of municipal banks. Movement grows coast to coast with active efforts from Seattle, San Francisco, and Santa Fe and going east to Washington DC and Philadelphia. And now the effort starts in Portland.

The Road

Directed by Zanbo Zhang
China/Denmark, 2015, 95 mins.

In 2008, the Chinese government initiated an ambitious plan to build a superhighway in the Hunan province in an attempt to stimulate the economy. Zhang’s film, four years in the making, chronicles the imposed project, from villagers forced to leave their homes, to the plight of migrant construction workers accepting hazard and low pay, to the project managers as they negotiate with Communist Party members, careless employers, and local gangsters. The portrait that emerges reveals not just the corruption and violence surrounding the Xu-Huai highway, but also the road that China has taken in trying to build a modern economy with little regard to human and environment cost.

PDX city council will consider a proposal for Public Funding of Elections for city officials.

It’s clear that special interest money plays too big a role in the democratic process. "Open and Accountable Elections" is an important step forward to restoring balance to our democracy. It encourages candidates to forgo big money and rely on small-dollar campaign contributions from the people who live in our city. It does this by matching small dollar contributions at 6-to-1. It will also cap all contributions at $250. This puts voters-and not wealthy special interests-at the center of our democracy

That examination begun with a critical look at the role of the too-big-to-fail banks and a desire to develop financial institutions which support the needs for local financing of local needs, separated from the profit seeking activities of the too-big-too-fail banks.

Thus a movement to form public banks was reborn. The movement today focuses on the formation of municipal banks. Movement grows coast to coast with active efforts from Seattle, San Francisco, and Santa Fe and going east to Washington DC and Philadelphia. And now the effort starts in Portland.

In their enlightening book "All the Real Indians Died Off" (Beacon), scholars and activists Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and Dina Gilio-Whitaker tackle a wide range of myths about Native American culture and history that have misinformed generations. They deftly show how these myths are rooted in the fears and prejudice of European settlers and in the larger political agendas of a settler state aimed at acquiring Indigenous land. "All the Real Indians Died Off" challenges readers to rethink what they have been taught about Native Americans and history.
