Radio Curious: Jonathan Harr – Toxic Water, A Book, Segment 1

2 months 3 weeks ago
A Civil Action Woburn, MA, is a small, blue-collar community just north and west of Boston. In the 1970s, some children in Woburn, MA, became sick and died from childhood leukemia. Some adults in that town developed rare forms of cancer. All of these people live very close to each other. Their illnesses were traced to two contaminated water wells that provided the water to their homes for drinking and bathing. As a result, one of the most complicated personal injury lawsuits was tried in the US Federal District Court in Boston. In this program of Radio Curious, I spoke with author Jonathan Harr, who wrote “A Civil Action,” the horrendous story of the people who became sick and the subsequent trial. Jonathan Harr recommends any books by Charles Dickens. Originally Broadcast: November 22, 1995

TUC Radio: A Talk by Jane Anne Morris & Richard Grossman - Defying Corporations, Defining Democracy, Segment 2

2 months 3 weeks ago
The Rio Earth Summit of 1992, also known as the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development was the first time the world on the scale of the UN was paying attention to patterns of production — particularly the production of toxic components, or poisonous waste and radioactive chemicals. The first time that alternative sources of energy were called for to replace the use of fossil fuels, and the role of fossil fuels in climate change was acknowledged. A small group of thoughtful individuals had come together - just before the Earth Summit - and asked: Who are the most powerful players in global economics that might prevent action to stop climate change. And the members of the group, that took the name POCLAD, Project on Corporations, Law and Democracy agreed: Corporations are using the Law to subvert Democracy and have now become more powerful than nation states. Two of their most public members were Richard Grossman, who co-founded POCLAD and Jane Anne Morris. They were not just excellent writers of pamphlets and books but very popular public speakers. Both came to Seattle in 2001 and talked about ways to defy corporations and re-define democracy that had been so grotesquely subverted. Jane Anne Morris spoke first. Grossman and Morris later connected with CELDF, the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund - and taught and developed material for their Democracy School weekend sessions. Sadly both are no longer with us, Richard Grossman died in November 2011, and Jane Anne Morris in March of 2019.

The Taxcast: Immigration as reparations: The Taxcast, July 2019, Segment 1

2 months 4 weeks ago
In this month’s July 2019 podcast we speak with multiple award winning Suketu Mehta about his new book: This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto on the fastest way to fix global inequalities and injustices. (A UK version of the book will be published in August 2019.) Plus: we discuss France’s 3% digital tax which has so angered the US president and yet another sign of the collapse of the supposed international consensus on tax rules and which countries have the power to dominate those agreements. And, we discuss the high tensions with Iran in the Strait of Hormuz and how expensive navies are potentially protecting privately owned ships which are busy minimising their tax bills using flags of convenience.
