The US Social Forum in Detroit was last week, from Jun 22nd-June 26th

We have a special 5th of July edition, featuring interviews from the US Social Forum in Detroit between June 22nd and 26th; we try to give space to the reality of people struggling around the country–from the Poor People’s Economic and Human Rights Campaign to academic boycotts of Israel, as well as the need for libraries and radical childcare; the voices you’ll hear on today’s show are a testimony to the state of our nation and approaches being taken to address social change.

The US Social Forum in Detroit was last week, from Jun 22nd-June 26th

We have part one of a special report on last week’s US Social Forum in Detroit, where tens of thousands of beautiful activists, organizers and people who are simply sick and tired of being sick and tired, came together to network, strategize and create local, regional and national goals. On today’s special, we’ll hear testimonials about the devastation occurring in people’s communities around the country; also, we’ll hear about a new exciting domestic workers’ alliance that’s been built at the US Social Forum; finally, we’ll end the show with Radio Flash, that is, Flashpoints en Espanol, also featuring sounds from the US Social Forum in Detroit.

US Social Forum started today in Detroit

An activist report from the Gulf on the expanding BP disaster: we’ll get an in-depth report on the growing civilian casualties in the Afpak War, as the US Commander there tenders his resignation; and we’ll have a report on how the mainstream press demonized a military whistle-blower instead of supporting and  welcoming his courage; and Jesse Strauss reports in Up front from  the second US Social Forum.
