PROJECT CENSORED 2012 SPECIAL with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips

Theresa Mitchell of Presswatch and Per Fagereng of Fight the Empire co-host a special program with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored to talk about the release of Censored 2012, which Celebrates 35 Years of Project Censored.

In the last 35 years, the so-called mainstream media have been co-opted into a propaganda machine for the transnational corporate power structure, which serves a US/NATO Military Industrial Media Empire instead of We the People.

Project Censored resists the goals of global empire at the expense of human rights, we resist top down managed news in favor of a truly free press, and we resist censorship in all its guises.

Portlanders break the blockade on Cuba!

program date: 
Tue, 07/07/2009

For more than 40 years, the Cuban people have faced an economic, commercial and financial blockade by the government of the United States of America.

 

Cubans say this is one of the most cruel, inhuman and prolonged policies of hostility endured by any people in the history of human civilization.

 

Throughout these last 44 years, a total of 10 different U.S. administrations have reinforced and expanded the complex system of laws and measures that make up the blockade established by the U.S. government against the people of Cuba.

 

This policy has inflicted and continues to inflict serous damage to the Cuban people’s material, psychological and spiritual welfare, while seriously hindering its economic, cultural and social development.

 

An event was held in Portland on Sunday to send a painted solidarity school bus of aid from the Pacific Northwest to Cuba. The bus will be joining thirty other vehicles, and over one hundred participants, who will be crossing into Cuba on July 21st. This will be the first open attempt to break the blockade during the Obama administration.

 
Sunday’s event began with singer David Rovics.
 
Speakers include Alicia Jrapko and Nita Palmer.  The segment ends with a song by Maria Damaris.

program date: 
Sun, 06/07/2009

James Marquis Ennes, Jr., a survivor of the 1967 attack by Israel on the American intelligence ship USS Liberty and one of the creators of The USS Liberty Memorial Web Site, is an American citizen and a retired career US Naval Officer. He was born in New Jersey in 1933 and was raised in New York, Texas, Illinois, Washington State and California.

Alison Weir  "Because so few people know about Israel's extremely ruthless attack on the US Navy ship, the  USS Liberty, I'd like to alert you to that  as well.  This is a profoundly important topic. The crew members, who are still waiting for justice, have waged a heroic (but to date unsuccessful) campaign to bring this attack before the American people."
