David Harvey at The Future is Public conference in Amsterdam, Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
David Harvey spoke at the "The Future Is Public" International Conference 4-5 December 2019 in Amsterdam which was organized by the Transnational Institute (TNI Discription from the TNI web site for the program. "We are living in a crucial moment. Cities are on the front lines of today’s most urgent challenges, including fighting climate change and rising inequality, as well as the need to support refugees and provide universal access to public services that are human rights including housing, drinking water and sanitation services, energy, health care and education. These global problems call for public solutions. A growing network of progressive, green municipalities is developing strategies to tackle these and many other critical issues. Cities are well positioned to explore direct democracy, and advance innovative economic models that build community wealth and create decent jobs. At the same time, we need a national level of coordination and ambition to reverse market fundamentalism, which is the root cause of our collective economic and social crises. Profit-driven, market-based policies led to the privatisation of our public services and to the denigration of solidarity and public service."

Voices from 35th and King Drive : Para-dime shifts, Segment 1

2 weeks 2 days ago
Protesting racist policing has a long history in Chicago whose police department is under a Federal Consent Decree for its racist practices that city officials have condoned for decades by refusing to stop. Racial profiling, shooting, false arrest, torture, political assassination, false witness and intimidation mostly directed at black and brown communities. The 16 shot murder of Laquan McDonald by patrolman Jason Van Dyke and the attempted coverup by former Mayor Rahm Emanuel and States Attorney Anita Alverez united the community to remove them in a black lead campaign for justice and going forward community control of policing (CPAC). Yet following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis massive protest erupted across the city and drew people from across the the usual divides, so outraged were they that they could not remain silent. Major protest shut down the city on Saturday and lead to a curfew, the shut down of all public transportation serving the downtown district as well as the exits from the freeways, while police responded from one location to another with the results increasing the demonstrators resolve that "enough was enough". Subsequent and spontaneous calls for a demonstration would bring 400 or more people to intersections to "shut things down". The business district was choked, while Cook County Jail at 26th and California was ringed by car caravans demanding of Sheriff Dart that prisoners be released before they died from Covid-19. On June 3rd, Wednesday a car caravan, called by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, greeted Mayor Lightfoot in her north-side neighborhood at 7am. In the afternoon a car caravan was called to protest police brutality and demand community control of the police at the 35th and S. Michigan Ave police station in the heart of the historically black community Bronzville. People were gathering at 35th and King Drive for the caravan to start. They speak about what brought them out and of what they had seen.

Radio Curious: Elliott Norse – Trawling the Ocean Floor, Segment 1

2 weeks 2 days ago
Once, fishes as big as turkeys and sheep swam the seas. Now, most of their few remaining descendants would fit into a frying pan. Dr. Elliot A. Norse, president of the Marine Biology Conservation Institute in Redmond, Washington, believes that this radical reduction in the size and number of the world’s fishes comes not only from over fishing, the catching of fish at a faster rate than they can breed, but also from bottom trawling. Dr. Norse writes that bottom trawling crushes, buries, and exposes marine creatures like lobsters, crustaceans, clams, corals and sponges that live on or in the seabed, damaging or killing them. In August of 1999, Dr. Norse visited with Radio Curious to discuss the effects of bottom trawling, how and where it’s done, and some of the concerns and causes of global warming and the effects it has on the oceans. Elliott Norse recommends “The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinction” by David Quammen. Originally Broadcast: November 27, 1998

Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines.

Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another 6 months of episodes. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.
