Fourteenth Busiversary (2004-05)

This show celebrates 14 years since Flying Focus' weekly half-hour program premiered on November 18, 1991. On the "Busiversary" six volunteer producers you do not ordinarily see in front of the camera introduce clips from their 2004-2005 shows. Many introductions are in the form of interviews by field footage coordinator PC Peri. The producers have been with Flying Focus for between three and fifteen years; they were Barb Greene, Dan Handelman, Yvonne Simmons, Martin Evans, Daniel Webb and Adam Bernstein. Other volunteers contributed to this year's shows by videotaping, interviewing or assistance in editing.

Once again there were a large number of shows revolving around the occupation of Iraq and related issues (Iraq Labor Tour, Iraq and US Foreign Policy teach-in and analysis by Daniel Ellsberg/Medea Benjamin, Voices in the Wilderness in federal court). Two shows specifically spotlighted the Israel/Palestine situation (Israeli pilot Yonatan Shapira, one of many who refused to fight in the occupied territories, and the parents of activist Rachel Corrie, who was killed while protecting a Palestinian home by an Israeli soldier operating a bulldozer).

Other shows included a focus on Biodiesel, fuel made in part or in whole from vegetable oil, as an alternative to waging war for gasoline; the importance of independent media (featuring Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!); issues of animal rights, copyrights, and women's rights; women in times of war (taped in Europe) and human rights work in Peru; and the past and current history of post-apartheid South Africa. There's also a show considering the since-withdrawn proposal to gut the nation's social security plan.

Also included are clips from a 5-part, 9-hour "Speakers and Events" program which covered the 2004 National Conference on Police Accountability, held in Portland.

This program was once again partially edited on our Macintosh G4 computer and compiled by Flying Focus founding member Dan Handelman.
