A program of social and political commentary from a socialist-feminist point of view.
On this show, the Moles consider the significance of nationalizing banks, as the US Government is now planning to do. We also hear from two Minnesota student activists who locked themselves to the gate of a weapons factory to stop arms shipments to Iraq.
Marianne Barisonek speaks with Dahr Jamail, award-winning independent journalist who reports from Iraq. He is the author of Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq.
This program, hosted by Tom Becker, deals with better ways to repair the economy, making Portland Sweat Free (no purchases of city uniforms produced by sweatshop labor), the Winter Soldier Project in Portland where Iraq veterans testify about the impact of the war on their lives, and what Columbus really did.
Tom also announced the Cross Trade Solidarity Report-back from the Labor Notes Conference, Saturday, October 18, starting at 6pm, at the Musicians Hall, 325 NE 20th Ave in Portland.
