Today on Flashpoints, we return to Haiti and the situation there as thousands are reportedly seeking ways to flee the country as a government corruption scandal grows over billions of dollars missing from the Venezuela sponsored PetroCaribe program. Poverty and illiteracy rates are reported to actually be on the rise as Haiti’s economy shrinks and remittances from family and friends now account for nearly 40% of the island nation’s GDP. Then we talk with author and scholar Matthew Alford about his recent book: National Security Cinema: The Shocking New Evidence of Government Control in Hollywood.

  • 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.
