Class War Battlefield Podcast: Episode 2018.11. Rising Progressive Challenges to the Older Capitalist Order, Radicals I think not, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
This weeks episode contains an introductory montage about the upcoming elections (or explaining what elections are and how they are manipulated). You’ll hear in that montage a great commercial from Reagan’s 1984 election, a brilliant Gregg Palast piece and some information on Gerrymandering. Once past the introduction prepare yourself for another introduction of sorts, as I found myself with a problem this week. Earlier in the week I came across two topics so vitally important I could wait to record a commentary about them, so I took that energy live (sort of), recording segments twice before actually recording the introduction prior to posting the new episode. The first segment discusses Cenk Ugar’s appearance in front of the National Press Club (to be fair, the introduction also touches on that topic), while the second discusses the absurdity of calling Right Wing Gunman Radicals (they’re bigots, pure and simple). In between each clip you’ll hear a great Bruce Springsteen song and an equally great Angels & Airwaves song, before I wrap the episode, saying a fond farewell for now. Thanks for your time. Peace.

Jeff Frank on The Struggle in Brazil, Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
Jeff Frank is the National Coordinator for the Friends of the MST (the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement) and has spent a substantial time in Brazil working with this dynamic peasant movement. He is also a National Lawyers Guild attorney and has worked with Brazilian attorneys to provide support in bringing international pressure to expose the legislative coup in Brazil. He speaks on the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff in 2016 as part of a soft parliamentary coup; the conviction of Lula and barring his running for election in order to complete the coup; and the first round of the election and what it portends for Brazil. With declining profits, due to a retracting economy and falling commodity prices, international capital wanted an end to the social programs that the Workers Party had implemented following the dictatorship, which now cut into their profit margins and they were no longer willing to support.

He has written several books and numerous articles on the subject. His most recent book is In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte: , David Bacon documents the experiences of some of the hardest-working and most disenfranchised laborers in the country: the farmworkers who are responsible for making California Americas breadbasket. Combining haunting photographs with the voices of migrant farmworkers. Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to David about how US foreign policies combined with regressive trade agreements have been responsible for displacing millions of people from countries like El Salvador, Haiti and Mexico, and how Trump is adding insult to injury by repealing the TPS Status (Temporary Protected Status) from people who have been living and contributing to American society for many decades. And how as citizens we must stand together and protect those most vulnerable despite who the president is.
