Kshama Sawant, Nicholas Caleb & More | 15Now.org | Portland, OR 4/24/14

Filter Free Radio's Jacob Dean attends the 15Now.org event in Portland, Oregon on 4/24/14. The huge chasm between the richest 1% and the rest of us is widening, corporations are destroying the environment, and the U.S. government is deporting record numbers of undocumented immigrants. Clearly, the corporate politicians have failed the 99%. In response, nearly 100,000 voters recently elected Kshama Sawant to Seattle City Council as an independent Socialist, and she did not accept a dime in corporate cash! Now Sawant is leading the 15 Now movement to raise Seattle's minimum wage to $15/hr, inspiring the movement to spread to Portland, San Francisco, and nationwide.

Jacob Dean interviews Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant on her personal motivations and inspirations:

The star of the show Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant's Speech in Portland 4/24/14

Portland City Council Candidate Nicholas Caleb speaks about the similar platforms he is running on and Kshama Sawant won on, and how real socialist leftist candidates for local office can win. Look for an interview from FFR with Nicholas Caleb coming soon. Find more information at http://calebforcouncil.com/

In this clip, Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant's Campaign Manager (and longtime social justice activist) Ramy Khalil explains how the Koch Brothers and the Corporate State will try to undermine and destroy the 15Now.org movement to raise the minimum wage to a living wage for all workers.

In my personal opinion, one of the most amazing, most inspirational, most motivational speeches of the night was given by Ahjamu Umi - Organizer for the All African Peoples Revolutionary Party in Portland, Oregon. I had to stop recording right at the end of his speech so I could be the first person to give him a standing ovation in the front row (hence I missed most of the long standing ovation he received from the standing room only packed crowd on video.) Look for an interview from FFR with Ahjamu Umi coming soon. Find more information at http://www.aaprp-intl.org/
