Mitchell’s guest this evening is a young man whose story was one of two told in the film Oil & Water, David Poritz, about the devastation of large swaths of the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest, right in the middle of Indian tribal lands inhabited by the indigenous people for generations. The film was featured on Progressive Film Hour on March 3, on which Mitchell interviewed one of the filmmakers, Francine Strickwerda and the other young man whose story was told in the film, Hugo Lucitante.
Both controversial and with impassioned, environmentalist emotions set aside, today’s guest, David Poritz, is creating a novel and really desperately needed protection of indigenously-populated lands through the ranking/rating system of safety and what need to be eco-sensitive practices by the oil industry, just as we have fair-trade certification for coffee, diamonds and other commodities often originating in the highly-exploited “Global South”.
Oil and Water will be the featured film for the matinee showing at the Paradigm Shifts Music and Film Festival on Sunday, March 29 at 3pm. For more information and tickets, go to: http://abetterworld.tv/a-music-and-film-festival-march-19-29/

Fair Trade Towns USA National Organizer Courtney Lang discusses what needs to be done to improve Fair Trade in the southeast.
Lang has over 5 years of community organizing to Fair Trade Towns USA, building the Local Food and Fair Trade networks in Vermont.
As Local Food Coordinator with City Market/Onion River Cooperative, Courtney worked with local producers, institutions and consumers to increase market access and organize a strategic model for action through farm tours, workshops, and local food challenges.
Courtney witnessed child-labor first hand in Costa Rica.
A founding member of Fair Trade Burlington, she worked with economic development organizations, businesses, and consumers to build awareness of Fair Trade among Vermonters.
She worked with a Fair Trade USA licensee, Vermont Coffee Company, as Friend Ambassador where she united the story of Fair Trade to every purchase of coffee.
Courtney is creating programs and providing strategic direction for over 80 campaigns across the US that are seeking to increase the awareness and availability of Fair Trade products in their community.
The fair trade ecosystem has been around for awhile with roots in Africa. Today, it is a brand that stands for many things, but at the heart is a system that increases benefits to producers in Africa and other emerging regions while also increase value to the end consumer.
Michael Nkonu, Managing Director of Fair Trade Africa based in Nairobi, Kenya joins us to share where the fair trade market is today and where it is going in the future. Creative entrepreneurs will hear insights to give them perspectives on how to do business in Africa to be successful.
Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds, Co-Founders of Indigenous
In this case, Indigenous is synonymous with organic, fair trade, ethically sourced and guilt free clothing. I love these two! The backstory: On a trip to South America back in 1993, Scott encountered the priceless beauty of clothes produced by local artisans. The richness of the culture and the amazing knitting techniques prompted him to bring back more than a souvenir to his Northern California home. He returned with a vision to pioneer a new business model that would invite each of us to wear apparel that demonstrates our commitment to the people and environment. Together, Scotty and Matt have helped form a scalable artisan network through the Indigenous clothing line that reflects a commitment to sustainability, social entrepreneurship and responsible actions by consumers and business alike. These guys are fun, funny and true revolutionaries. You will never feel the same about clothing again - and that is a good thing! This show made possible due to the generous support of The Chapman Automotive Group.
I met Katy today who represents and works with Mayan Hands and UPAVIM Crafts while attending the Mission Presbytery meetings here in Austin, TX. Prebytery is a collection of leaders from all over the boundaries of the Mission Presbytery area within the structure of the USA Presbyterian Churches. Katy has agreed to share her "mission" and "passion" behind why she is involved in the fair trade markets/ministries and why it is so important for us all to become so involved in this process.
I'm excited for her to be a part of my show. Mark your calendars now!
Fair Trade Monday series is an attempt at educating the public about fair trade ministries/markets and how it intertwines with the causes to end global gender violence.

I met Chris Cloyd last year at the World of Hope Fair Trade Market at Hope Presbyterian Church in November 2012.
HOPE is a nonprofit corporation created to empower destitute families to lift themselves out of poverty and sickness. Though HOPE does much charity work, its primary goal is to promote justice for the oppressed by providing fair business markets where all workers can earn livable wages. HOPE markets Fair Trade products from all over the world in stores and traveling booths wherever we can, esp at churches. Each sale makes a significant impact for artisans, often just one Fair trade sale gives families more income that a week of hard labor! HOPE would love to come do a presentation and booth for your church or group. Contact Chris Cloyd for more info 512-550-9282 firstname.lastname@example.org
Please join us as we initiate the first of a FAIR TRADE MONDAYS series, focusing on empowerment, keeping those in poverished nations from being entrapped in gender violence issues such as domestic violence, human trafficking, sex trafficking and more while we learn why it is so important that we buy fair trade products and services whenever possible.
If you are a vendor that wishes to paricipate in our 2013 World of Hope Fair Trade Market at Hope Presbyterian in Austin, Texas, please contact us at email@example.com as soon as possible.

We need to understand that new energies are available to everyone on this planet to raise our vibration levels, and hence, raise our consciousness. How can this be accomplished? Joyce’s latest book presents a workable blueprint for all of us.
The Dr. Pat Show: Talk Radio to Thrive By!: Maca for Lifelong Wellness with Mark Ament. Maca is a turnip like vegetable that grows at altitudes at and above 13,000 ft (3200 m) in the Andes. As the world’s highest growing crop, Maca is incredibly hardy, thriving in an inhospitable environment of rocky soil, extreme temperatures, high winds and intense sunlight. The plant produces a small root that has been treasured by natives of the high Andes for 1000s of years. Traditionally, Maca root is ground into a powder and eaten as a staple food to help improve fertility, to boost stamina and to provide a nutritional boost with broad-ranging benefits.
