Tariq Ali - World in Crisis - Part Two of a special two part program (interview)

On December 17, 2010 Muhammad Bouazizi, a street vendor in a small town in Tunisia, burned himself to death. He was protesting harassment and mistreatment by state authorities. His death fueled a revolt in Tunisia which toppled the Ben Ali dictatorship. The spark spread to Egypt and within weeks the decades old Mubarak regime was overthrown. The so-called Arab Spring rocked the entrenched old order. Those revolutionary currents have stirred the waters elsewhere. The economic collapse is shaking things up in the U.S. Witness the Occupy Wall Street movement. Americans, fed up and struggling to make ends meet, watch their military bomb and occupy countries from Pakistan to Yemen, are taking to the streets. Citizens are challenging and questioning the status quo.

Jodie Evans speaks on "Disturbing Power the CODEPINK Way"

Rocking the boat is never an easy task but you can accomplish meaningful things and have some fun along the way. Playing ball with the rich and powerful of course has its rewards. You're in the golden rolodex. You get invited to all the right parties. People nod at you when you enter a room. Your name gives you entrée to inner circles. In politics the president or the secretary of state may even smile at you and call you by your given name. But all of that adds up to what exactly? Not much. That kind of fame is fleeting. Better to shake things up and fight for human rights and justice. Even if you don't succeed every time you can look in the mirror and feel good about yourself.

Ray McGovern talks about Iran, an IAEA report on nuclear verification, and Israel

Host Per Fagereng speaks with Ray McGovern, who was a U.S. army officer and CIA analyst for 30 years, about Iran, an IAEA report on nuclear verification in Iran circulated last week, and Israel. McGovern recently said, "What's really new, if anything, in the IAEA report? And why are some U.S. officials, belatedly, playing it down after a lot of pre-release ballyhoo? Does this reflect a nervous attempt to rein in the 'crazies' in Tel Aviv and their neocon friends in Washington? If so, is it likely to have that effect?
