Students protest budget cuts and rising tuition costs

We’ll get an update on the situation in Honduras, where President Zelaya is still holding out in the Brazilian Embassy there, while the resistance movement continues to take to the streets; also, we’ll speak to a veteran teacher in the community college system in California about the impact of budget cuts at the two-year level; we’ll also be joined by Peter Phillips, who has a new article about the real causes for the financial meltdown at the Universities and Colleges; and Kevin Pina will be in the studio for an update on the situation in Haiti as he heads out to the region.

  • 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.
