It's a Brand New War (TM). Join Abe and Joe for Libya!, the US' latest imperial adventure.

A U.S.-led international coalition has imposed a no-fly zone (read: bombed) on Libya, claiming support for the Libyan rebels who are fighting Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. Onward democracy, and all that. One wonders, though -- will we intervene on behalf of our freedom-loving brethren in Yemen? In Bahrain? In Saudi Arabia?

Voices from the Edge 03-17-11 A new look at Oregon's Measure 11 and its impacts

program date: 
Thu, 03/17/2011

Kevin Mannix promised voters in 1994 that his Ballot Measure 11 establishing minimum mandatory sentences would create certainty in Oregon's criminal justice system. While the measure tripled the state's prison population over 20 years, a new report by the state Criminal Justice Commission finds that Measure 11 not only failed to deliver certainty, it has cost the state billions of dollars while it shifting sentencing power from the hands of judges to those of district attorneys - a shift many see as dangerous.

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.

Interview with Arundhati Roy, celebrated author of “The God of Small Things"

Arundhati Roy: Revolts & Rebellions (interview)

Beyond the hoopla of robust growth rates and hype about the world’s largest democracy, India is beset by major revolts and rebellions over a vast area. Some, like the one in Kashmir, are for independence. Others, like the multiple uprisings in what the media call the “Red Corridor” are for the overthrow of the government. These various movements are in response to serious economic and social problems and the racism of Hindu nationalism. The seizure of land, water, and minerals by corporations chaperoned and sanctioned by the state has caused the poorest of the poor to say: No More. They are pushing back. Washington ignores India’s internal realities.
