1 hour 31 minutes ago
Building Trades Activists Break Mold in Protest of Trump with Gretchen Newsom, Political Director, IBEW Local 569, San Diego Building Trades activists from Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 569 knew they had to do something. We couldnt let him come and speak to us and just sit there, said William Stedham, an executive board member of the local. If we hadnt, everyone would think that the Building Trades was on board with him 100 percent, and were not. So a few minutes into his speech, the workers stood up with signs that said Resist and turned their backs on the billionaire-in-chief. The gesture flew in the face of a directive from Building Trades leadership that attendees should be on their best behavior. Demonstrators included the political director and business manager of the Local as well as the president and political director of the San Diego Building Trades. Interestingly, the media present failed to cover the protesters or when the in the Security snatched their signs and yanked them out of the room, but rather projected to the public what seemed to be unanimous support for Trump. The activists were furious over Trumps appointment to a key role in his Department of Labor a top lobbyist from the anti-union Association of Building Contractors and that former Heritage Foundation staffer James Sherk is now the White House Domestic Policy Councils labor and employment adviser. Sherk has written endless articles attacking union workers. The things weve been fighting hard for"more project labor agreements, more local-hire agreements, and better training and workplace safety"none of them are being supported by the Trump administration, said Gretchen Newsom, political director of Local 569. ************** Striking Spectrum-Time Warner Cable Workers With No Contract Since 2013 Say Enough is Enough! Thousands of striking Spectrum-Time Warner cable workers took to the streets for a mass rally after walking a picket line for the past week feed up with being without a contract since 2013. The strikers service Spectrum-Time Warner Cable field equipment " keeping customers internet and cable service up and running. The workers on strike range from warehouse and service technicians to the members of the engineering department. Yes, we have bills to pay, but more importantly, we have families that need healthcare, retirement that needs to be robust, and morale that needs to be positive said striking IBEW worker Reyes. The 1,700 technicians walked off the job March 28 after years of trying to get a contract and failing. The union said Spectrum-TWC wants to cut employer contributions to pensions and health benefits.

We hear from Ray Mcgovern, a former US Army Infantry.Intelligence officer and representative of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity about the case contradicting the claim of a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian military against residents of a village in the Idlib Governate. McGovern also explains how the NeoCons in Washington have manipulated Trump into his policy reversal on Syria. We then hear interviews with Patrick Henningsen, a journalist in Syria, about the chemical agent deaths, the recent massacre of over 100 refugees evacuated from two villages near Aleppo, and the distorted coverage by the West of events in the beleaguered country. Finally, we hear unaired audio from an April 1st interview with Mahdi Nazemroaya relating to Turkish President Erdogan's ambitions in the region, and in particular its inconsistent stance toward the Kurdish population in Syria, Iraq and within its own borders.

21 hours 49 minutes ago
This version of the program is divided into 6 segments so broadcasters who desire to use this content can insert your station info, etc. The segments vary in length. Out of the Woods is an earthy, wires and wood, mostly acoustic program featuring some of the best new and established artists from the worlds of folk, bluegrass, singer-songwriters, alt.country, Americana, classic country, old-time, Celtic, and everything that falls in between. The show is an unpredictable mix flowing like a river between moods, often with an edge or in a melancholy minor key. On occasion, Out of the Woods features interviews and live in-studio performances with national and international touring musicians. Past guests have included artists such as Bela Fleck, Si Kahn, Brown Bird, Dana Robinson, Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen, Kate MacLeod, Bill Bourne, Karl Shiflett, Rachel Bissex, Darryl Purpose, Bow Thayer, Cosy Sheridan and many others. Out of the Woods grew out of Jon 'Chip' Colcord's former acoustic programs, The Song Swap and Music For The Mountain, separate folk and bluegrass programs which aired in New Hampshire during the 1990s. As a child, Colcord grew up a ravenous music fan with an ear for both rock and folk. All of these influences converge on Out of the Woods to bring you a mix which is as much on the edge as it is down home. Folk music with a rock 'n' roll soul
