Sohaila Abdulali - Taking About Rape
20 Jan, 2020 | 0:57:21 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Rape. From Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to Wall Street financier Jeffrey Epstein to NFL star Antonio Brown, this ancient crime is in the news. The #MeToo movement has enabled many women to tell their stories for the first time. Who can forget Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony under oath at the Brett Kavanaugh hearings? Forever, women who have been raped have...
Matt Taibbi - Media: Monetizing Anger
13 Jan, 2020 | 0:56:59 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The current period could be dubbed The Age of Anger. To drive ratings up and along with them ad revenue there’s nothing like rage. People go to their favorite media outlet as if it were comfort food. Where their views are validated and reinforced. And their anger finds a home. Argu-tainment is the order of the day and boy does...
Robert Hackett - Canada: Pipelines, Politics & the Press
06 Jan, 2020 | 0:57:02 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has a contradictory record when it comes to the climate crisis. On one hand he declared a “national climate emergency.” On the other hand he plucked down more than $4 billion in public money to buy TMX, the Trans Mountain pipeline which will carry dirty tar sands oil. James Hansen, the renowned U.S. scientist warns,...
Arundhati Roy – Modi’s India
30 Dec, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The India of its current prime minster Narender Modi is a far cry from the India of Gandhi and Nehru. Tolerance and secularism are being replaced by Hindutva, a Hindu nationalist ideology which seeks to establish Hindu dominance in a country where there are hundreds of millions of religious minorities. Modi is the head of the Bharatiya Janata Party, the...
Winona LaDuke – Native American Eco-Justice
23 Dec, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Eduardo Galeano in his masterwork, The Open Veins of Latin America wrote that 500 years ago European settler colonialists came to this hemisphere and "sank their teeth" into the throats of Indian civilizations. You know the story. Genocide. Land was stolen. Broken promises and broken treaties. Survivors exiled to inhospitable reservations. In recent years indigenous people are organizing and asserting...
Howard Zinn – Q&A in Albuquerque
16 Dec, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

This recording, recently discovered in the piles at AR, features the great radical historian talking with students at UNM. He is asked about getting past the culture of denial of the powerful. Drawing on his vast knowledge of history he says, “It always takes time and persistence. Every movement looks like it is hopeless in the beginning. It seems people...
Sanjay Kak - Kashmir in Crisis
09 Dec, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The stunningly beautiful land of Kashmir, nestled in the Himalayas, has seen much bloodshed and suffering. Over the decades the Indian state in attempts to stifle resistance to its rule in Kashmir has deployed hundreds of thousands of troops, imposed curfews, clampdowns and crackdowns. But nothing approaches the current situation. On August 5 the Hindu-nationalist government of Prime Minister Narendra...
Nick Estes - Indigenous People’s Resistance
02 Dec, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The history of indigenous people is full of acts of resistance. One such dramatic action was the seizure of Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay by activists from the American Indian Movement. November marks the 50th anniversary of that event. More recently the blockade at Standing Rock in North Dakota galvanized indigenous communities to defend their land, water and sacred...
Noam Chomsky - Threats to Peace & the Planet, Part Two
25 Nov, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Why are so many people all over the world out in the streets demanding change? What are the root causes of revolt? What about U.S. Syria policy and the betrayal of the Kurds? And BDS and Palestine? How do we overcome sectarian differences? Why are Americans so afraid? Eco-disaster and nuclear war threaten human existence. The former garners some attention...

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor - The Power of Social Movements
11 Nov, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

One of the techniques of ruling class control is to isolate people from one another. “Look out for yourself,” is the constant drumbeat. We are reduced to self-centered consumers not engaged citizens. Saul Alinsky suggests a different path. In his Rules for Radicals he said, “Change comes from power, and power comes from organization. In order to act, people must...
David Cole – Guardians of Liberty
04 Nov, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The wheels of justice turn slowly. How long before Jim Crow laws were overturned? How long for the U.S. Supreme Court to recognize gay marriage equality? How long the wait times in immigration courts? And even when someone, or some cause, has its proverbial day in court, the courts have an uneven record in dispensing justice. The legal field recognizes...
Cornel West - The Socratic/Prophetic Traditions
28 Oct, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

“How do you straighten your back up? How do you tell the truth? How do you bear witness? How do you organize? How do you mobilize? How do you generate forms of resistance and resiliency in the face of some very, very ugly forms of terror and trauma and stigma?” Activist/Scholar Cornel West asks these fundamental questions. And he takes...
Vijay Prashad – History & Politics: Zigs & Zags (Part Two)
21 Oct, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

History and politics are replete with zigs and zags into all kinds of unexpected directions. Take for example, the Shah of Iran. He looked impregnable on his throne until he was toppled by massive street demonstrations. Who could have predicted that the suicide of a street vendor in a small town in Tunisia would lead to the overthrow of an...

Russell Means – For the World to Live Columbus Must Die
07 Oct, 2019 | 0:57:02 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The dynamic Russell Means presents a moving and eloquent talk on Native America. He recounts how consciousness has changed among indigenous people but among the white European settler descendants many of the old prejudices remain. For example, he says, “The Pope is going to canonize Father Serra an Indian murderer and Indian slave owner.” In North and South America Indian...
Michael Chertoff & David Gibbs – Debate on Humanitarian Intervention
30 Sep, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Humanitarian intervention is always cloaked in altruism. Noted author Noam Chomsky says, “Almost every aggressive act by any great power is justified on humanitarian grounds.” Helping people who are suffering is laudable but injecting military force can lead to even worse outcomes. Libya is a perfect example of what can go wrong. The specter of atrocities was raised. A U.S.,...
David Harvey – The State/Finance Nexus
23 Sep, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The contemporary capitalist economic system has an extraordinary component to it. That is the connection between the government, and the financial sector, the big banks. What banks? The Big 5 are JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup. Their assets are in the trillions of dollars. The economic and political implications of capital resources of that...
David Korten - Beyond Money
16 Sep, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Money, you know, is the root of all evil. The pursuit of it no matter the consequences has led to us, as the New York Times describes it, “speeding toward environmental catastrophe.” Unregulated predatory capitalism and its obsession with generating profits no matter the cost to Nature is endangering civilization as we know it. Globally people, young people in particular,...
Caroline Frederickson – Fixing Democracy
09 Sep, 2019 | 0:56:59 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Around the world democracy is in trouble. Autocrats have come to power. In the U.S. democracy is compromised by a political system awash in money, gerrymandering, voter suppression and that absurd relic, the electoral college. One of the principal designers of the U.S. system of governance was James Madison. He said the main task of government is “to protect the...
