Climate Justice Forum: Kai Huschke 1-28-13


The Monday, January 28, Climate Justice Forum radio program hosted by Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) features Kai Huschke, the Spokane-based Northwest organizer for the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund and an Envision Spokane activist who will lead a Friday evening presentation and Saturday morning workshop at the 1912 Center in Moscow.  Kai explains how the corporate-shaped/state-supported regulatory system and legal doctrines favor corporations over communities and why activists must transition from reactive, defensive struggles toward pro-active, offensive strategies that enact legally defensible bills of rights and succeed in protecting ecosystems and communities.  His experience and perspective on rights-based initiatives are especially germane to the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) scheme to expand and reroute U.S. Highway 95 south of Moscow through native Palouse Prairie remnants on weather-exposed Paradise Ridge, likely to accommodate international industrial traffic like tar sands megaloads.  WIRT invites listeners to share their insights during the show broadcast on KRFP Radio Free Moscow between 7:30 and 9:30 pm PST live at 92.5 FM and online, by calling the station studio at 208-892-9200.  Thanks to the generous, anonymous listener who adopted program host Helen Yost as his KRFP DJ, the show also covers regional and continent-wide dirty energy developments and climate activism news.
