This Week In Palestine: Amer Zahr gives voice to the resiliency and resistance of Palestinians against great odds (R), Segment 1

3 days 4 hours ago
This is a tweaked rebroadcast from July 12. It's a difficult time for Palestinians, but then again, under occupation, it's always a difficult time for Palestinians. That is why we continue to marvel at the resiliency and passion for their land that seems to buoy them to continue their resistance against great odds. We certainly see that in Amer Zahr, our presenter this week, who gives voice to that resiliency and resistance of his people. ...

New World Notes: #679 -- Capitalism and its Discontents , Segment 1

3 days 6 hours ago
Variations on a theme. KD explores why the Powers-That-Be try to suppress the word "capitalism." Economist Richard D. Wolff explores the public's growing disillusionment with the U.S. economic system and explores the prospects for change. We'll hear also a song by the late Anne Feeney: "Winter, Go Away." One line of the song--which implies that winter is warmer in Texas--inspires a preface on the death toll from Texas' profit-driven, un-winterized electric system. (Cont'd)

Building Bridges: Fannie Lou Hamer: Her Song on the Road to Freedom - Women's History Month Special - , Segment 1

3 days 8 hours ago
A 55 minutes 57 seconds Building Bridges Special for Women’s History Month Fannie Lou Hamer: Her Song on the Road to Freedom, a one woman play written, performed and song by the magnificent MZuri Moyo Aimbaye. Fannie Lou Hamer started picking cotton at age six and was forced to leave school at 12 to work full time. Rather than defeat her this would strengthen her resolve for the empowerment of her people and foretold her becoming the mother of the voting rights movement in the Mississippi Delta. Her courageous struggle for the right to vote was filled with danger and sacrifice. She lost her livelihood on the plantation she worked on and she would then lose her home. There were constant threats on her life, she was jailed, and brutality beaten. But she did win her right to vote and then went on to co-found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party and challenge the political power of the all-white Dixiecrats. Hamer helped organized Mississippi's Freedom Summer along with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and co-founded the National Women's Political Caucus, created to recruit, train, and support women to seek election. She lost her life to breast cancer at age 59 but her spirit is eternal.
