Taylor Report: Imperialist Powers Ignore International Law, Segment 1

3 meses 2 semanas ago
Phil interviews international lawyer Christopher C. Black of Toronto about two Myanmar soldiers who allegedly "confessed to war crimes" in Rakhine State. Black sharply criticizes the process by which the soldiers were videotaped making statements, contrary to the Geneva Convention, as well as their illegal transfer to Holland where they are being held without due process or the benefit of Habeus Corpus. Black argues that the kidnapping of the soldiers violates the sovereignty of Myanmar and fails to recognize that Myanmar armed forces are facing coordinated attacks by foreign-backed rebel armies whose aim is regime change against the country's socialist government. From his long experience with the ICC, ICTY, and ICTR, Black concludes that the International Criminal Court is a political tool of Western imperialism against countries of the Global South. The ICC, he says, is a court which engages in indictments and show trials against leaders of these countries, as an object lesson to other countries not to resist the designs of the USA and EU.

Taylor Report: Illegal Rendition of Paul Rusesabagina, Segment 1

3 meses 2 semanas ago
Reports from Rwanda of the second court appearance of Paul Rusesabagina reveal an old pattern of presenting an accused as being already-guilty. Rusesabagina appeared in pink prison garb, and his head had been shaved. So much for the presumption of innocence. And the purpose of shaving the head is to humiliate an individual who has earned the respect of people around the world. Whatever transpires in the Rwandan court, the question must be asked: why have the U.S. and Belgium, where Paul was recognized and praised, now begun to "look the other way?"

3 meses 2 semanas ago
Sonic Café with music from Dope Lemon, hey welcome I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 207. This time the Sonic Café features some of our favorite alternative and indie rock bands. And unlike most Sonic Café episodes that feature artists from 40 years or so, most of this mix is pulled from the last five years or so with just one outlier, from the late Canadian artist Leonard Cohen. So ahh, listen for Dinosaur Jr., New Order, TV On The Radio, Twenty One Pilots, Death Cab for Cutie, Jimmy Eat World and of course more. Then later the Sonic Café brings you stand-up comedy. Listen for Saturday Night Lives’ Colin Jost with some interesting observations about New Yorkers and living in New York. Oh and prairie sized welcome to our latest sponsor. Listen for a message from the Corn Syrup Producers of America who stress how important it is to have as much high fructose corn syrup in your daily diet as possible. All that and some other neat stuff too just ahead from our little café overlooking the big blue Pacific ocean, we’re the Sonic Café.

3 meses 2 semanas ago
Radio Curious revisits a conversation with Mary Catherine Bateson, author of "“Full Circles: Overlapping Lives, Culture and Generation in Transition.Do we really know the people around us?

Mary Catherine Bateson, the author of a book entitled, “Full Circles: Overlapping Lives, Culture and Generation in Transition,” believes that we are strangers. She describes us as immigrants in time, rather than space.In this interview from the archives of Radio Curious, recorded in April 2000, we visit with Mary Catherine Bateson, the daughter of two distinguished anthropologists, Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson.

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. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another five 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.

Taylor Report: The War Before the War, Segment 1

3 meses 2 semanas ago
Referencing Ulrich Teusch's book, "The War Before the War," Phil takes us on a journey about how we are being lied into another war, this time with the 1.4 billion people of the People's Republic of China. As is so common today, there is no discussion among our "elected representatives." Canada simply follows U.S. policy. The self-appointed "exceptional nation," the U.S., finds that it can no longer compete with Chinese business, and therefore seeks to suppress a sovereign country. America is ramping up its trade war, and broadcasts an avalanche of poorly-substantiated propaganda about China's Western region that does not hold up to scrutiny. Make no mistake: this is "pre-war propaganda." Trump is back to calling COVID the "China Virus," which endangers the lives of Asian citizens in the Anglo countries. We're asked to be suspicious of Chinese students, diplomats, and businesses. This is a political virus. It is contingent on you as a citizen to find out what China's government is saying. They don't believe in a hegemonic power. They believe in the United Nations and international trade. We need to avoid the U.S.'s "zero-sum game." If there is to be a peace movement in Canada, it must go directly to the decision of the U.S. and Five Eyes allies to create a problem that is outside the sphere of the United Nations Security Council - to act as if they have a privileged space as white Anglo-Saxon countries to make rules for themselves, and to create political havoc. As Danny Haiphong and others have noted, we have a phenomenon where people who think that they are anti-war try to find a "middle way" between what America and what China are saying. But the U.S. is looking for trouble, and says it is looking for trouble, with the great nation of China. That is problem #1, and comes before what somebody is saying about 'human rights issues.' We are facing pre-war propaganda, and we have to confront it and defeat it.

TUC Radio: Fast Food World - TUC personal archive - One of Two, Segment 2

3 meses 2 semanas ago
In the seventh month of Covid, September 2020, life for so many is coming into focus around the essentials - Home and Food. Including my home, threatened by the California fires, and my tiny garden with tomatoes and peppers. Meanwhile the whole world is bursting in with Covid news. And a conversation is beginning about how bes to rebuild the food web when Covid ends. For me this brings back memories of an extraordinary on-stage conversation at UC Berkeley at the end of November 2003. The hall filled to capacity long before the beginning of the event. Who would have thought that a simple title such as “Fast Food World” would draw over 700 people. In the end those, who were lucky to get in, realized that a humble hamburger and a fizzy soda have global causes and consequences in industry and culture and survival of farmers and farm-land. They also made for an intriguing conversation on stage ranging from Kentucky to India and Italy to Berkeley. When statistics come up in this radio program keep in mind that this was the year 2003. But also that cost and price of corn for farmers is still, in 2020, determined by subsidies, the obesity epidemic in the US has only grown, and you also have to pay almost $5 for a salad at a fast food joint where a hamburger is also only one dollar. The three speaker are: Wendell Berry
Farmer and author of The Unsettling of America and Citizenship Papers Carlo Petrini
President and Founder, Slow Food International Michael Pollan
Contributing writer, New York Times Magazine and professor, UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism Come back for Part TWO with the Indian physicist and seed collector, Vandana Shiva and Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation. That was the first of two parts of excerpts from a 90 minute recording by Maria Gilardin with the UC Berkeley School of Journalism on November 24, 2003.

Sea Change Radio: Lee van der Voo: As The World Burns, Segment 1

3 meses 2 semanas ago
A few years ago, we discussed a high profile case, Juliana v. U.S., brought by 21 remarkable young plaintiffs across the country. The plaintiffs, most of whom were children when the case was first filed, essentially argued that their government had a legal obligation to protect them from the effects of climate change, an obligation they were failing to meet. This week on Sea Change Radio, we get an update on the lawsuit from journalist Lee van der Voo who has chronicled the case in her new book, As The World Burns. Then we dig into the Sea Change Radio archives and hear a bit from our 2017 conversation with Philip Gregory, the lead attorney for the plaintiffs in the Juliana case.
