Unwelcome Guests: #750 - Black Is The New White, Segment 1

1 month ago
A deep dive into the divide between the story of progress in which the competition of all against all is leading to a richer, more developed and world and the reality in which all ecological systems seem to be in a deep decline. Inspired by the prophetic ''Escaping The Matrix'' from June 2000, this super-extended show is my selection from 1500 hours of former episodes, a reflection on the 21st century ideological dark matter which has left a lot of humanity like rabits caught in our own headlinghts - blinded, paralysed, confused between black and white, knowing that it is time to run, but unsure of the direction. How to respond to unprecedented levels of hunger and depression? Why is so much human and fossil fuel energy spent on destroying our habitat? Or to roll out ever mre violent technology that makes all of life more unhealthy and insecure? Is there, as President Eisenhower asked, "no other way the world may live"? Using first hand testimony where possible, we begin by scrutinizing the smoke and mirrors of modern US history. Using concepts such as the "free market", "democracy" and "terrorism" we introduce ''The'' Deep State, the supranational (and increasingly close) alliance of formerly separate criminal gangs that co-opted national governments. Our focus is not on the individuals but the larger concepts which make up what Charles Eisenstein termed "the ubiquitous matrix of lies". We conclude with a look at the neurological and cultural basis of the emergent matrix, and the ways in which the an ever more global, grassroots rethink is increasingly undercutting it. I pray this show will boost interest in the Kellogg Briand pact and so help move us away from war and towards an authentic, global, democratic consciousness.

This Week In Palestine: Ilan Pappe on his 2017 book, The Biggest Prison on Earth, Segment 1

1 month ago
This week we'll hear historian Ilan Pappé as he discusses the themes in his 2017 book, The Biggest Prison on Earth: A History of the Occupied Territories. It's a portrait of the devastating military occupation of Palestine today. He is speaking in Washington DC. Here's Amazon's description: "Israeli expat historian Pappé ... boldly and persuasively argues for understanding the occupied territories as the world’s 'largest ever mega-prison' ... Pappé’s conclusions won’t be welcome in all quarters but this detailed history is rigorously supported by primary sources." ―★ Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "Following his critically acclaimed investigation of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in the 1940s, renowned Israeli historian Ilan Pappé turns his attention to the annexation and occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, bringing us the first comprehensive critique of the Occupied Territories. "Based on groundbreaking archival research, NGO records, and eyewitness accounts, Pappé's investigation of the 'bureaucracy of evil' explores the brutalizing effects of occupation, from the systematic abuse of human and civic rights, the IDF roadblocks, mass arrests, and house searches to the forced population transfer, the settlers, and the infamous wall that is rapidly turning the West Bank into an open prison. Providing a sharp contrast with life in Israel, this is a brilliantly incisive and moving portrait of daily life in the Occupied Territories."

Chicago Teachers Union - Strike Solidarity Rally, Segment 1

1 month ago
Rally in support of Chicago teachers who want a fair contract that guarantees: nurses, librarians, social workers, and counselors; smaller class sizes; a decent pay raise for educators, school staff and the Chicago Park District workers who provide the after school services that children and parents depend on. Speakers provide a back story of why they will support of the city's teachers and children should a strike be forced by the mayor. And following years of betrayal by former mayors, when it comes to keeping their promises, why they are demanding that Mayor Lightfoot, who ran on an education platform sounding a lot like the unions own, put her promises in writing. Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopezand, 25th Ward and Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, 35th Ward, and Cook County Commissioner. Brandon Johnson speak at the rally. Also addressed by a speaker is why affordable housing, part of the union's contract demand, is essential for the healthy development and well being of the children that teachers are responsible for educating and facilitating in their development as healthy human beings. The strike is about more than the salary and benefits that the Mayor and corporate media are trying to narrow the story to. Its a fight against neoliberal ideologues and those businessmen who see public education as a cash cow and children from disadvantaged environments as exploitable and disposable.

1 month ago
This episode of the Global Research News Hour, falling on Keep Space for Peace Week, probes the plans by the Trump Administration to militarize and weaponize space and the potential ramifications for escalating a new arms race, with implications for the social welfare and the global environment. In our first half hour, we get a perspective from Toronto-based academic and peace campaigner Tamara Lorincz, on Canada’s current role in advancing U.S. military agendas including their aspirations with regard to missile defense and dominance in space. She also provides a brief same day report back on a protest she organized outside the NATO Association of Canada office in downtown Toronto. In our second half hour, Global Research News Hour associate Paul Graham conducts a conversation with Bruce Gagnon of the Global Network Against Nuclear Power and Weapons in Space talks about America’s plans for the development of outer space as a war-fighting theatre. He also details the concerns about the use of nuclear power for space travel, the role of the military in guarding access to the heavens, and the cost of a new nuclear arms race to environment protection, social security and other projects in the public interest.

Taylor Report: We Need to Build a New Green Economy, Segment 1

1 month ago
Autoworker Sean Crawford travels across the border to build resistance against the auto sector's multi-tier employee system, which harms worker solidarity. But more than promoting co-operation across borders, Crawford is bringing with him a grander vision. Crawford, a native of Flint Michigan, knows just how damaging plant closures can be. With callous owners shutting down production in the U.S. and Canada alike, labour needs to take the reins. If managers and governments won't save production, it is us who need to mobilize to retool industries for Green Jobs and environmentally-friendly production. Only workers have the collective interest at heart.
