A look at the understorey of the Amazon fires and the long history of colonialist destruction. If we want to protect the forest, we have to protect the people, and look to them for solutions outside the confines of a system that continues to wreak havoc on all living things. Next, Anne Petermann from Global Justice Ecology Project sits down with us for some straight talk on the reforestation trend, false solutions and important upcoming actions.
Building and healing civilizations: as we stare down the 2020 presidential elections, here's a little food for thought on how our system is built – and what advanced math of all things can tell us about the pit falls of having a president, or a “democracy” like ours in general. Next up, the power of art – the power of laughter, and the power of blending that with political commentary. Comedian Krish Mohan joins us to talk more.
As ecosystems around the world fall into death spirals and scientists cry out that the point of no return is upon us, a look at our justice systems highlight the pitfalls and fallacies in our thinking. For instance, did you know that your right to clean air, water and food pales in comparison to the rights of a stack of papers? Next up, July 26th marked the 66th anniversary of the Cuban revolution. Netfa Freeman joins us to talk about building solidarity, exchanging ideas and Afro-Cuban racial justice.
The psychopathic framing of the Democratic debates are a kind of microcosm in which to view how out of touch the US is with reality. For instance, the threat of nuclear genocide is considered a policy talking point rather than an existential emergency.
Finally, Anne White Hat joins us to talk about her personal experience with the anti-protest bills that have popped up across the country.
The destruction of our planet for profit is deeply personal – so why shouldn't we treat it that way when it comes to the people perpetuating that destruction? Next up, from the streets of Puerto Rico, a look at what happened, how, why, what's next and what we can learn from this powerful push for change.
