"Financial Cliff" means austerity, poverty for all

What will you do to fight austerity?
On my KBOO program today, I invited callers to discuss the "Fiscal Cliff," as the latest version of increasing austerity measures. I invite Portland Indymedia readers to listen to the show, and to comment here. I feel that there must be a strong fightback, starting now, against the impoverish-the-American-worker juggernaut.

Kudos and my gratitude, by the way, to those of you who faced down the anti-free-speech cops, and the searing pain of pepper spray, at the November 3 protest. Your courage will be remembered.

By the way, KBOO now automatically generates Web audio from its programming. To get to the audio you want, pull up kboo.fm and then enter your desired program-- in this case presswatch-- into the search bar at the upper left (decorated as a biplane pulling a banner). (Don't separate the words "press" and "watch" or you'll get years-old links.)

The austerity discussion starts in earnest about eleven minutes in. What is your response?

thanks

Theresa
