Building Bridges: Bisbee Arizona's Ethnic Cleansing of 1,300 Immigrant Mineworkers! , Segment 1

Which Side Are You On: The Story of Bisbee Arizona's Ethnic Cleansing of 1,300 Immigrant Mineworkers! with Katherine Benton-Cohen, Professor of History, Institute for the Study of International Migration, Georgetown University The border town of Bisbee, Arizona is known for a few things. First, theres that massive copper mine that was turned into a tourist attraction back in the seventies. Then, theres that can-do spirit that wont let said town " or mine " die, no matter how much times change. Oh, and theres also the hundred-year-old ethnic cleansing that everyone is eager to forget, including those concerned that the atrocity might reflect badly on that damn mine, which kickstarted the event a century ago. We tell the story of Bisbees ignoble, anti-immigrant past to juxtapose it as an admonition against the advent of our anti-immigrant, anti-worker behavior today. which is recounted in Robert Greene's new film "Bisbe '17" We talk with Katherine Benton-Cohen about the 1917 labor strike against Phelps Dodge, a copper mining company based in Bisbee, Arizona, a town seven miles from the Mexican border. The labor action was cut short when 2,000 strikebreakers and hastily deputized citizens rounded up 1,300 protesters, many of them members of the radical, Industrial Workers of the World, aka The Wobblies. In this process two strikers were killed. The strikers were taken across state lines by train and dumped in the New Mexico desert with a warning to never return. The event tore apart families and created divisions in Bisbee and the surrounding county that linger to this day. One of the most harrowing anecdotes recounted here finds a sheriff's deputy arresting his own brother, a striking union member, at gunpoint in his own home.

On this week's Global Research News Hour radio program we investigate factors influencing the outcome of the US Mid-term elections. We first hear from lawyer, author, and editor of the online Columbia Free Press Bob Fitrakis about past and ongoing mechanisms which allow partisan operators to clandestinely manipulate the vote. We next interview broadcaster, writer and political economist Dr. Jack Rasmus about his take on the recently renegotiated NAFTA agreement, now called the USMCA, about what is actually in that agreement, and the role it might play in the November 6 election outcome.

The Alembic Files: The Anti-Federalists - Part Seventeen, Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
In Letter No. 17, Centinel expands upon his previous essay. He takes direct aim at the Founders scamming their fellow Americans for millions of dollars. Well-to-do elites, acting as political saviors, are speculating using public monies. Centinel displays amazing courage in this missive. He names names and levels charges. Does Centinel make another tangential reference to Alexander Hamilton, who had a powerful influence over George Washington? The Federalists are stealing supplies and property and are using their plunder to further their hold on power. Centinel calls out Federalist Francis Hopkinson as a shill for denigrating the Irish-born Anti-Federalist writer and educator, Benjamin Workman, aka Philadelphiensis. Centinel implies that Hopkinson, "The Little Fiddler," has debased himself by accepting bribes. It's an unpopular claim in today's myth-loving, hero-worshiping America: The Founders were erudite grifters who pulled every trick out of the bag to swindle their fellow citizens out of their liberties and property. Sadly, ironically, Americans have been propagandized into believing they can’t be propagandized.

This Week In Palestine: Jafar Farah and Nabila Espanioly comment on Israel's outrageous new "nation-state" law, Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
Israel has passed a controversial new “nation-state law” that’s sparking both celebration and fierce debate over the very nature of Israel itself. The law does three big things: 1. It states that “the right to exercise national self-determination” in Israel is “unique to the Jewish people.” 2. It establishes Hebrew as Israel’s official language, and downgrades Arabic — a language widely spoken by Arab Israelis — to a “special status.” 3. It establishes Jewish settlement as a "national value” and mandates that the state “will labor to encourage and promote its establishment and development.” To the 20% of the Israeli population who are Palestinian, it further solidifies that Israel is truly an apartheid state. Today we feature a Palestinian pushback. Jafar Farah, director of the Massawa Center, which monitors and promotes Arabic rights in Israel, and clinical psychologist Nabila Espanioly, a feminist activist, who founded the Al-Tafula Women’s Center in Nazareth, addressed the new apartheid law at the Harvard law school. We were there to record it. Here is their response to a law that negates the very existence of the Palestinian people.
