This Week In Palestine: Israel's destruction of a brand new school for Palestinian children , Segment 1

4 months 3 weeks ago
Today's show is in three parts, as the title suggests. The first two are disturbing news stories, and the third is an interview with Israeli journalist Max Blumenthal. We begin with a story out of Bethlehem…the wanton Israeli destruction of a brand new, desperately needed, internationally funded school the very day before school started. Sharen Khalel reports this in Mondoweiss, which.we read. Our next story involves the outrageous arrest of Issa Amro, Palestinian activist and voice of the people. Issa Amro of the most beloved activists working in the very dangerous area of Hebron, perhaps the most active area of Israeli settler violence. The charge: posting criticism on Facebook. It is yet another example of the collaboration of the Palestinian Authority with the Israeli military…indeed the PA has become an arm of the occupation. Finally, we play Abby Martin's interview of Max Blumenthal on Telesur’s Empire files.

Taylor Report: What we forgot about Korea, Segment 1

4 months 3 weeks ago
Stephen Gowans delves into the history: after WWII and liberation from the Japanese occupation, Korea refused to give up the struggle for independence. The parallels to post-war Vietnam are strong. Korea declared its own independence, was divided, and the South placed under a U.S.-backed occupation force recruited from Japanese fascism and their collaborators. Although Korean guerillas and Soviet military forces shed blood in freeing Korea from Japan, the U.S. lost none. Yet, the U.S. was able to occupy half of the country. It complained about the Soviet occupation. The Soviets left. The Americans never did. Gowans comments on the Trump administration's approach to the DPRK. We are at the mercy of headline writers who give us headlines like "War is inevitable, says the North Korean representative." Actually, the Koreans complained that the U.S. was heading towards war via the constant U.S. military exercises on the DPRK's border. Trump's comments are as provocative as the military exercises, but have precedent in the statements of previous U.S. presidents and officials. North Korea has proposed freezing its own nuclear program, in exchange for an end to the massive U.S. exercises on its border. They have also proposed reunification under a confederation of two systems. You hardly ever hear about that. There's no progress, because the U.S. absolutely does not want to lose its military presence on the Korean Peninsula.

TUC Radio: Renegade Economists Marilyn Waring, Kate Raworth and Elinor Ostrom (Part TWO) , Segment 2

4 months 3 weeks ago
Safe drinking water counts for nothing. A pollution-free environment counts for nothing. Even some people - namely women - count for nothing. This according to the United Nations System of National Accounts, the SNA, that sets the standard and imposes economic and budgetary decisions for almost 200 countries. The SNA produce the GDP, the Gross Domestic Product that allegedly measures well being within a country. However war and catastrophes deforestation and mining show up as beneficial for the economy under the GDP. Marilyn Waring, former New Zealand M.P., now professor of public policy at Auckland University, writer, and goat farmer, explained this in her book: Counting for Nothing. She gave a 30 year update at the University of Alberta, Canada, on November 18, 2016. This is an excerpt of her 55 minute speech. Waring spoke at the Parkland Institute, at the University of Alberta. Parkland exists to counteract the dominance of the marketplace tat led to expanded corporate power. And to preserve the understanding of Canada as a caring and sharing society.  This is part two of a TUC Radio miniseries on Renegade Economics and how to resist the demands of permanent economic growth and protect the earth, indigenous communities, local agriculture and women.
