We continue our reporting on the multiple impacts of Obama’s war policy; we’ll speak to an anti-war veteran on the 26th day of a hunger strike in front of the White House; we’ll revisit with a Native American anti-war mom and hear about her son’s struggle against a devastating case of PTSD; also, we’ll talk to a radical comedian who is challenging Charlie Schumer for the US Senate seat in New York; we’ll have a preliminary report on the sentencing of the Cuban Five in Miami; and we’ll also hear about the victory of a local activist who was beaten, arrested and indicted on felony charges for standing against the endless wars; and the Knight Report.

  • 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.
