The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 03/15/11

Air date: 
Tue, 03/15/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Will Seaman joins Abe and Joe to discuss the upcoming March 19 peace march and rally.

Sometimes lost amid the background noise of the American political and social landscape is the fact that we're still at war. Nearly 10 years on, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have reaped a grim harvest of blood and treasure. Is there a way out? How long will U.S forces remain? Does the violence and unrest spreading through North Africa and the Middle East threaten to draw us in elsewhere? Is it still worth our time to resist? In advance of Saturday's big anti-war rally and march, activist Will Seaman visits the show to tackle these compelling questions and more.

Last week, 45 people were arrested in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, for watching a video on the uprising in Egypt. They were charged with treason and were tortured by government personnel. One of the detainees was pushed out of a second floor window resulting in a broken leg. Some of the detainees are HIV positive and in need of their life-saving medicine. All have been denied access to medical treatment, lawyers and proper meals.

We marvel at the outbreak of democracy in the American Midwest.

 It's kinda nice when we remember we're strong. The extraordinary pro-worker demonstrations that started in Wisconsin two weeks ago -- and have since spread -- give lie to the conventional wisdom that the labor movement is dead. Wisconsin's new governor, Scott Walker, made busting the state public employees' union his first order of business. The union, along with sympathetic Wisconsinites of all stripes, busted him right back -- hard. And they show no sign of backing down.
