Today on Flashpoints, in the wake of what the media is calling vandalism by occupy Oakland protesters last night. We speak with one of occupy Oakland’s own to get their version of events in the state of the movement. Next we go to Peru where clashes between demonstrators and police during protests against a US mining company have left more than 5 people dead. We then talk with Arnie Gunderson about the conclusions of an investigation by the Japanese government of the Fukushima nuclear melt down. Finally we go to Haiti where the government is forcibly evicting residents of poor communities and bulldozing their homes with little or no notice.

  • Musicians!!

    We're searching for great new music produced by independent musicians and members of our global audience, so that we can be as non-corporate and copyright-free as possible. All genres -- from blues to electronica to world beats -- welcome!

    We like smart, political and well-produced music -- and are especially in search of possible new theme instrumentals. Please send it to Flashpoints, c/o KPFA, 1929 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, CA 94704, or email your Mp3s at with full descriptions and credits.
