La Mission

La Mission

We’ll continue our frontline reporting on one of the worst environmental disasters in modern history, we’ll hear from our reporters who were out on the water, around the marsh and the bay where the oil is spilling into now by the millions of gallons; also, we’ll have in-depth analysis on the state visit by Mexican president Felipe Calderon; we’ll talk about San Francisco’s decision to kill the “secure communities” program that condones racial profiling and the arrest of migrant workers on mere suspicion; Miguel Molina interviews Benjamin Bratt and Peter Bratt about their new film, La Mission, filmed in San Francisco’s Mission District; and we’ll feature sounds from Crossing Arizona, the film that documents the negative impacts of current racist laws against migrant workers, their families and supporters.

  • 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.
