Global Research News Hour: 5G and the Wireless Revolution: When Progress Becomes a Death Sentence, Segment 1

1 mes 4 semanas ago
This week's Global Research News Hour returns to an examination of the health hazards associated with wireless communications and the refusal of regulators in Canada and elsewhere do respect the science. We hear from Frank Clegg, Ceo of Canadians for Safe Technology, about the failure of political representatives and regulators to recognize the risks. We later hear from noted researcher Professor Martin L Pall of Washington State University about how EMF exposure affects cell physiology and its impacts on the larger organism, with implications for human survival. Finally, Mark Gildenhaar of Kingstonians for Safe Technology talks about successful organizing in the city of Kingston, Ontario, and about a Saturday September 21st anti 5G rally and follow-up expert panel discussion.

Focus on Mindanao - Bishop Felixberto Calang, Segment 1

1 mes 4 semanas ago
The island of Mindanao is rich in minerals and agricultural lands that multinational mining and agricultural corporations seek to extract. It is also rich in a culture of resistance to the destruction of indigenous communities, water and land resources that inevitably result. Religious leaders have spoken out against the human rights abuses and murders of nonviolent rights defenders and community organizers; violence by which the central government seeks to protect foreign investment. The Bishop speaks of how he and other religious leaders have been tagged as "Reds", supporters of the armed Marxist group that have fought the colonial and imperial occupation of their land for over fifty years. Mindanao, is under marshal law and occupied by the Philippine army which operates a death battalion and terror campaign. Yet the Bishop, and the others who defend the church, "the people", is undaunted in his quest for justice and peace. He lays out the campaign "that will help gather moral and spiritual support to human rights victims especially the Lumad and Moro peoples of Mindanao." He asks, " help us develop and sustain our people’s alternatives that are already being carried out such as the building and running of Lumad alternative schools, fair-trade startups, capacity-building programs, human rights sanctuaries, and other projects". Bishop Calang mentions American human rights activists Brandon Lee whose attempted assassination by army agents the week before left him near death. Still menaced by the military, the American Embassy has refused to evacuate him to safety. The U.S. Government green lights the repression in Mindanao to support multinational business and investment, providing guns, gun ships and military trainers in the field but over which U.S. citizens could organize to have some say.

Building Bridges: Greg Palast -Who's Stealing the US Elections? , Segment 1

1 mes 4 semanas ago
We Dont Have a Working Democracy. So What Happened and How Do We Fix It: Hey Whose Really Been Stealing the Votes? with Greg Palast, Americas wittiest (and wickedest) muckraker. An award-winning Guardian investigative journalist, he is causing crooked election officials all over the country to shiver in their shoes as they wait for a knock on their door from the FBI " thanks to his explosive exposes. Palast, is the author of the New York Times bestsellers, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits and The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. Since the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in 2013, the dark art of vote stealing is on steroids. Voters are being removed from rolls more aggressively " especially in the preclearance states that previously had additional protections under the VRA. As a result, last year alone, 14 million Americans were purged from voter rolls. This changes elections, because its not just anyones vote that gets stolen. Overwhelmingly, these are voters of color, young voters, and low income voters " voters who tend to vote blue. The result, we have a president and a Senate that wasnt elected democratically " and this corruption goes all the way down the ballot to your local dog catcher and sheriff. Since the Civil Rights era, since the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965, about 16 states and jurisdictions were under special orders that if they were going to mess around with the way people voted, they had to get it precleared, pre-approved by the Justice Department, to make sure that they werent wiping out voters of color, Puerto Rican voters, etc. You remove the guts of that act " as happened in 2013, with the Supreme Court ruling on Shelby v. Holder " and now the partys started. Theyve started removing voters of color from voter rolls all over America, especially in those former preclearance states " without a review to make sure its not discriminatory, that we dont have a return to Jim Crow. As a result, last year alone, 14 million voters were purged from the voter rolls. Thats according to the Election Assistance Commission " the federal government itself. And according to Palasts investigations, most of those people are legitimate voters whove lost their right to vote This changes elections, because its not just anyones vote that gets expunged. Palast offers up Georgia as a case study; throws back into the sea of political red herrings the exaggeration of the Russians Are Coming and most strategically talks about what we can do to fix our corrupted election system

Donald Drumpf Theatre: Donald Drumpf Theatre Vol. 140 Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows, Segment 1

1 mes 4 semanas ago
"Donald Drumpf Theatre" is an original radio theatre show about a fictional, theatrical presidency, with most sounds culled from the previous week. Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. The network has currently ordered another 15 episodes, but there are threats of cancellation. Anyone who would like to contribute to the show should contact info@wgxc.org.

Radio Curious: Gary Coy – The Man Driving the Dog Team, Segment 1

2 meses ago
There is strong historical and anthropological evidence that dogs came across the Bering land bridge with people migrating from Siberia to Alaska. These dogs worked hard to maintain their keep; they werent pets. Instead, they chased and ran down polar bears and located seals hiding beneath the Bering ice. One of the early dog professionals in Alaska was Harry Karstens, who later became the first superintendent of Mount McKinley National Park. As a young man, he pioneered a dog sled route from Fairbanks to Valdez, and hauled mail to the Katishna mining district. Now, at Denali National Park in central Alaska, theres a breeding and training and leadership program for these sled dogs. I spoke with Gary Coy, the director of this remarkable kennel. In his office there is a large sign quoting Harry Karstens. It says: A man driving a dog team is the biggest dog himself. Amid the noise and the chatter of the dog kennels in Denali Park, I asked Gary to explain what that sign means and to tell us a little about this wonderful project. Gary Coy recommends A Dog-Puncher on the Yukon, by Arthur Walden. Originally Broadcast: August 28, 1996
