Twenty-Ninth Busiversary (2019-20)

Per our tradition, Flying Focus producers and other volunteers emerged from behind the cameras-- albeit socially distanced for COVID-- to introduce clips from shows produced in this past year (Nov 2019-Oct 2020). The "Busiversary" has marked each year since the Flying Focus Video Bus premiered in November, 1991 by giving our volunteers time to talk about each show and why it is important.

This year we showcase 14 different programs (made up of 25 episodes). At least five were about civil rights/police accountability with two directly featuring actions around the uprising in Portland after Minneapolis Police killed George Floyd. Part 1 also features shows about animal rights (with Ingrid Newkirk, founder of PETA) and a significant labor-related case from during the red scare (with author Raymond Caballero).

In part 2, four shows revolve around the issue of climate change, including two recorded at the trial of five people who blocked oil train tracks in the Portland area, with PC Peri acting as pool videographer in the courtroom.

Two of the shows include recordings from online presentations following the pandemic's onset-- one of the police accountability shows in part 1 and one of our war and peace shows, which features a talk from Professor Zaher Wahab about the US/Afghanistan "fateful partnership." There's also an outdoor recording from a July 2019 protest against potential US wars in Iran and Venezuela. The show ends with clips from the 2019 Hiroshima Day event, which unlike the 2020 event was held outdoors at Waterfront Park.

The Busiversary was produced by Dan Handelman.
