2 days 10 hours ago
A professor at Carleton University, Marcelo Saavedra is an Indigenous Bolivian leader and founder of the Bolivia Action Solidarity Network. He speaks to Latin Waves about the need to protect indigenous languages as these languages change how we view the world. He challenges the western notion of rights and how the paradigm shift that’s taking place must have women front and center. “If we can harness that wisdom that is embedded in our ancestral cultures, we can get rid of capitalism, patriarchy , Globalization and colonialism. And Women are a central central piece in this puzzle”

Radio Ecoshock Show: Extreme Heat #2: How It Kills , Segment 1

2 days 18 hours ago
Deadly heat in India, unheard-of heat in France and Alaska. The Arctic is thawing out. Other places, from the U.S. Southwest to the Middle East, were merely unbearably hot. People have died and many more will be killed by heat in the future. But how does heat kill, and who? I have three experts to explain what we all need to know, in the second of my series on "Extreme Heat".

Essential Dissent: Left Forum 2019 - The Green New Deal, Segment 1

4 days 1 hour ago
The Green New Deal proposal has reframed social issues as ecological issues, and ecological issues as political issues. This panel explores the Green New Deal as a political battlefield, a space within which different ideas, proposals, and possibilities for managing the future come into play. We explore the role of agriculture, the global south, resource extraction, and paths to a sustainable and just future in light of the reshaping of the political battlefield through the Green New Deal proposals.

Building Bridges: Saudi Arabia - Armaments & Conflict in Yemen & the Middle East , Segment 1

4 days 2 hours ago
Saudi Arabia and Jared Kushner: Armaments and Conflict in the Middle East with Mohamad Bazzi, journalism professor at New York University, a former Middle East bureau chief at Newsday and a former Council on Foreign Relations fellow. He is currently writing a book on the proxy wars between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Mohamad Bazzi, recently wrote for The Nation that Trumps public statements on Saudi killing in Yemen reflect "a narrative that has been gaining traction for years among U.S. officials and in sectors of the Western media: that the Saudis and their allies in the Yemen war, especially the United Arab Emirates, are killing civilians and destroying infrastructure by mistake. But this is not true. The Saudi coalition has targeted civilians and the countrys infrastructure by design since it intervened in Yemens civil war in March 2015. Its not that the Saudis and their allies dont know how to use American-made weapons or need help in choosing targets -- theyre using them as intended. And American officials have known this for years." Bazzi has written extensively on the war in Yemen and the Trump administration circumventing Congress on arms to Saudi Arabia while civilians are being targeted -and recently said: "the Trump administration stated it plans to circumvent Congress to sell billions in new weapons to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. U.S. officials have known for years that the Saudi/UAE coalition deliberately targets civilians in Yemen with U.S. weapons."
