Human Rights Violations in Zimbabwe

Wed, 03/02/2011

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.

Real Conversations for Real People

Crossing cultures ... it AIN'T just about Black & White!

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

program date: 
Tue, 03/01/2011

 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.

Short Description: 
Abe and Joe 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.

And and Joe tackle the movement afoot among American workers, and look back at the history of organized labor in the United States, the (not-coincidental) rise of the middle class -- and at the decades-long campaign by the ruling class to cut them back down to size.
