Sea Change Radio: If The Dutch Ruled The World (re-broadcast), Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
When liberal politicians suggest we look for policy-making inspiration from social democracies in Europe, the automatic reaction from some corners of the political scene is something like “well, then, move to Sweden!” or “Love it or leave it!” There is no reason that we can’t take lessons from other systems in our collective pursuit of a more perfect union, not to mention a more healthy environment. This week on Sea Change Radio we take a peek at how the Dutch do things. Host Alex Wise speaks with two American environmentalists based in the Netherlands to get their perspective on Holland’s environmental policies and practices. Michael Payne, a wind energy and bicycle advocate, and Mike Fawcett, the founder of Farm Zero discuss the cultural, economic, and financial keys to Dutch sustainability.

Building Bridges: Highlights from the Poor People's Campaign against Poverty, Racism & Militarism in D.C , Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
Highlights from the Poor Peoples Campaign against Poverty, Racism & Militarism in D.C. featuring the poor, the disenfranchised, the marginalized - we the people! The Moral Agenda, which has been guiding the last 40 days of actions, calls for major changes to address systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, the war economy and our distorted moral narrative, including repeal of the 2017 federal tax law, implementation of the federal and state living wage laws, universal single-payer health care, and clean water for all. With the Capitol behind him, in a city fraught with partisan politics, Rev. Barber laid out his vision for the Poor Peoples Campaign in his gravelly preachers voice. The rally followed 40 days of protest and civil disobedience across the country, but Barber wanted the crowd to know that day was not the end of anything " it was to be the beginning of a moral uprising across America. And, even though the day marked 50 years since Resurrection City, which was when thousands camped out in the same place to decry the plight of the poor, Barber also made it clear that they were not there to celebrate an anniversary. This is not a commemoration of what happened 50 years ago, he said. This is a reenactment and reinauguration.
