Today on Flashpoints, should we start the celebrations for Trump’s announcement of the withdrawal of US troops from Syria or should we join the chorus of calls to deepen our military’s involvement?  Reese Erlich joins us today to share his views. Then we speak with investigative reporter Aaron Mate about Russiagate hysteria currently gripping the nation. Next up, we return to the situation in Haiti with journalist Maud Jean Michel to revisit a massacre in the neighborhood of La Saline last month and the recent protests there this past Sunday. Finally, we have a short visit with Adbuster’s own St. Nick, co-founder Kalle Lasn puts consumerism this holiday season into perspective and offers his own suggestions for bringing back the true holiday spirit.

  • 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.
