This Week In Palestine: Ali Abunimah on the film the Israeli Lobby did not want you to see, Segment 1

1 week 1 day ago
The news service Al Jazeera has produced a 4-part film exposing the inner-workings of the Israeli Lobby. Israel found it so damning that it leaned heavily on Qatar, where Al Jazeera is headquartered, to force the film’s producers to not release the film…and they have not. This act of censorship has caused an enormous controversy. Somehow the Electronic Intifada obtained the film, "The Lobby - USA," and made it available for viewing on its website. You can view it there at electronicintifada.net/content/watch-film-israel-lobby-didnt-want-you-see/25876, and you should. It really is a “must see” film. If that post gets "disappeared," then google the phrase “watch the film the Israeli lobby did not want you to see.” You will get numerous other links to viewing that film. Today we feature the Electronic Intifada’s founder and director, Ali Abunimah, speaking about this film, its content, and its importance, before an audience at the Washington Report on the Middle East in Washington, DC. Before we go, we want you to know about another important film: "Imprisoning a Generation." It's a documentary film following the stories of four young Palestinians who have been detained and imprisoned under the Israeli military and political systems. Their perspectives, along with the voices of their families, combine to form a lens into the entangled structure of oppression that expand well beyond Israel's prison walls.

The Alembic Files: Phantasms of Freedom, Part 13, Segment 1

1 week 2 days ago
How well do we know the history of our nation? As for our Founders, what is fact? What is myth? While we have been told we are free, we face an increasing onslaught of laws, edicts, and proclamations governing our lives as American citizens. We have been told that “we need to get our Constitution back.” Do we truly need to do that? We are, during every election cycle, given a “choice.” But is it a real choice? Or a Hobson’s choice? Were our Founders the godlike, towering figures we were taught? Were they above reproach? Or were they human beings, subject to the same avarice, temptations and lust we all are? What were their motivations in starting this country? Were they benign in nature, inspired to offer their fellow countrymen “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?” Or were there other instincts at play? Was the Constitution truly designed to be the bulwark of freedom? Why were the Articles of Confederation jettisoned? Who were the Anti-Federalists? Why did they get such short shrift by history? What was the worth of the Founders? Were they Everymen? Or rich elites? The answers, when explored from an “unofficial” vantage point, may surprise you. Listen along as Eric the Blacksmith discusses American history with Al Aric and Theo. Current events are interspersed. Explore the nooks and crannies of suppressed information as the book “Hologram of Liberty” by Kenneth Royce is reviewed and its bibliography examined.

Taylor Report: The GM Shutdown Story is Worse Than You Think, Segment 1

1 week 2 days ago
In December 2020, GM Oshawa will close. 5,000 UNIFOR members will lose their jobs. Oddly, this sad labor story has been badly reported. Recently, there was an announcement by the company and union saying a stamping plant would provide, perhaps, 300 jobs. This was taken as a "best we can do" story. The "something" that is better than "nothing." The reports said that GM was laying off 2,600 employees. That left out another 2,500 UNIFOR members who help produce GM vehicles, but are employed by other companies. They earn less, have smaller pensions, and no shot at the "300" jobs. A fine mess, as they say in comedies.

Sea Change Radio: Climate Pioneers: Warren Washington + Kelly Gallagher, Segment 1

1 week 2 days ago
Since 1973, the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement has been bestowed upon people who have made a significant impact in the fight for a sustainable planet. Last week on Sea Change Radio, we spoke with noted activist climate scientist Michael Mann, who was one of two recipients of this year's Tyler Prize. This week, we are honored to speak with the other Tyler Prize Laureate, Warren Washington, to learn about the beginnings of his groundbreaking career as an atmospheric scientist. Dr. Washington was the second African American to receive a PhD in meteorology. He’s a former chair of the National Science Board, and currently a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. After our conversation with Dr. Washington, we chat with this year’s Tyler Prize panel moderator Kelly Sims-Gallagher, a professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, about the evolving intersection of global affairs and climate science.
