Deep Organizing and Regenerative Communities, Segment 2

1 week 3 days ago
Jeff Biggers is introduced by Vince Emanuele who along with Sergio Kochergin started P.A.R.C. - a place where community and the commons can be reclaimed. Its a concept and a human need the philosopher Ivan Illiach addressed in his many works. The reading is mix of performance and humor, and several friends contribute the voices of historical persons and even an odious Federal document; one eventually withdrawn due to the resistance of journalists and out spoken women who carried the fight from behind bars. Biggers notes the confusion today in the fact that the much celebrated musical "Hamilton", celebrates a monarchist and and person who despised common people.

New World Notes: #544 -- Tariq Ali on Palestine (R), Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
A fine talk on the past, present, and possible future of Palestine and its people, now enduring a blockade and a half-century-long military occupation by Israel. Much of Ali's criticism, though, is directed not against Israel but against the corruption of Palestine's "leaders"--the PLO and the Palestinian Authority. These "leaders," conniving with Israel, have enriched themselves while the mass of Palestinians suffer. They have made a "two-state solution" now impossible. (Cont. under "Credits")

Building Bridges: ICE Training Officers in Military-Grade Weapons, Chemical Agents , Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
ICE Training Officers in Military-Grade Weapons, Chemical Agents with Ken Klippenstein, renowned American national security reporter Sounds like they are getting ready for a war, a retired Immigration, Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency agent, Rob Uribe lvarez, told national security reporter Ken Klippenstein, on why ICE officers are being trained to use weapons that have been heretofore exclusively the province of the U.S. military. This seems to fit hand-in-glove with reports that ICE had retained a former CIA interrogator to train agents in handling terrorist suspects. Klippenstein in a Building Bridges exclusive reports on how ICE is quietly training its deportation officers in the use of weapons more familiar to the U.S. military than to domestic law enforcement, federal records show. The agency's Enforcement and Removal Officers are being trained in the use of M4 assault rifles, chemical agents, stun grenades, and flash bangs, according to federal procurement records. The M4 assault rifle is used extensively by the armed forces and has been the primary service weapon for the U.S. Marine Corps.
