First up, we cover the dangerous situation facing undocumented communities given Trump’s change in immigration policy, also the effects of the draconian SB4 in Texas also known as the “show me your papers” law. Then we turn to South Texas as activists sound the alarm over two nuclear reactors on the banks of the Colorado River now under threat from raging water flooding the area. Finally, we continue our coverage of the recent victory to return Ethnic Studies to Arizona classrooms.

  • 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.
