1 month 3 weeks ago
In today's full-hour show, we feature a discussion with Palestinian Niam Ateek, Episcopal priest and director of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center in Jerusalem. Others include Journalist Max Blumenthal (moderating), and Tarek Abuata of Friends of Sabeel North America. Reverend Ateek tells of the horror when the Zionist soldiers came and evicted him (then age 11), his parents, and 9 siblings from their longtime home which they loved. They were allowed to take only what they could carry. Later they were permitted a brief visit to the area. They hoped to visit that beloved home, but its Israeli occupants rudely turned them away. This was a presentation of the Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center. It is introduced by the moderator, Max Blumenthal.

An author, preacher, and professor, he is chief architect of the Forward Together Moral Movement and The Poor Peoples Campaign and Rev. Graylan Hagler, senior pastor at the Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ in Washington, D.C., who has spent a lifetime challenging racism, militarism and poverty, and whose energies are now committed to building the Poor Peoples Campaign In December 1967, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., announced a plan to bring together poor people from across the country for a march on Washington to demand better jobs, better homes, better education"better lives than the ones they were living. Dr. King was in the midst of organizing the Poor Peoples Campaign when he was assassinated in Memphis, fighting for the economic rights, fighting for the union rights and the dignity of the sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968. In tribute to Dr. King, which was to continue his legacy of fighting the three evils of poverty, militarism and discrimination the Poor Peoples Campaign would climax with the Solidarity Day Rally for Jobs, Peace, and Freedom on June 19, 1968. Fifty thousand people joined the 3,000 participants living at the King inspired Resurrection City encampment set up on the Washington Mall to rally around the demands of the Poor Peoples Campaign. Today, fifty-years later the Rev. William Barber and a new cadre of activists have picked up the reins of Dr. Kings Poor Peoples Campaign, in the face of systemic racism and the national governments carefully stoked white supremacy; and in response to the greatest wealth disparity the world has ever known; in response to impending ecological devastation; and against militarism used against the worlds peoples. The cry of pain from the depths of peoples souls is growing louder and resonates as a drum beat for change and the tears have watered the parched earth of struggle and caused to sprout anew the Poor Peoples Campaign. The Poor Peoples Campaign has been refreshed and emerged to engage in direct action, through mass civil disobedience, across the county for the enactment of policies & the concomitant practices that put need above greed. The Poor Peoples Campaign is bringing together we the people, collectivizing our voices to form a mighty chorus to take control of the narrative and shift the discussion from greed to need. The Poor Peoples Campaign is gathering its forces for a mass mobilization in Washington, D.C. driven by the percussive rhythms of peoples yearnings to turn the promise of democracy and equal rights into a reality " to put peoples needs above corporate greeds!

1 month 3 weeks ago
20 minute rant at the beginning of part one. Johnny Liberty is a speaker of the sovereignty movement that has been used by the right to thwart environmental and human rights issues. Its important to know your enemy. Maybe this can be used by the left but it shows how hard it is to get around a government. Do not try this at home! He has served time for tax evasion. Part two is followed by 20 minutes of unreleased Gong music recorded in 1972.
