In the first of the Old Mole Mole's new feature, The Law and the Left, Jan Haaken and Mike Snedeker discuss why the case of Cameron Todd Willingham, executed in 2004 in Texas for a crime of which he was almost certainly innocent, is so central to the fight against capital punishment. Read Mike Snedeker's piece at Counterpunch. Mike also recommends the blog The StandDown Texas Project for a critical take on the death-dealing Texas justice system.
Environmental writer and activist Brian Tokar talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about the 350 Movement and its limits. For stronger measures than will emerge from the upcoming Copenhagen climate conference, go here, here, and here.
Hosted by Tom Becker, this show deals with US military action in Afghanistan, the challenge to corporate-industrial society from climate change, and with putting people to death for crimes they did not commit. We hear haunting and apocalyptic music by Laibach from Slovenia.
