Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

Why International Aid is Slow to Arrive for Victims of Pakistan Floods  

Real Audio Real Audio  podcast MP3

Interview with Snehal Shingavi, assistant professor of South Asian Literature, at the University of Texas at Austin, conducted by Scott Harris

pakistan In the worst monsoon rains seen in 80 years, the nation of Pakistan has suffered devastating floods along the Indus River that have inundated dozens of cities and towns, affecting more than 17 million people including 8.6 million children. Aid agencies estimate that more than 8.4 million acres, or 14 percent of Pakistan's agricultural land, has been damaged. As the flood waters recede there is growing concern about disease, food shortages and malnutrition taking hold as Pakistanis travel back to salvage what they can from their destroyed homes. Early estimates found 1,600 people had lost their lives in the floods thus far. Story continues

Three-quarters of the city was flooded, destroying more than 180,000 homes, displacing about 300,000 residents and leaving 1,800 people dead in the disaster. Studies have found New Orleans' metropolitan area has recovered about 90 percent of its population and 85 percent of its jobs. But much remains to be done in the Ninth Ward and elsewhere.

iraq

As news from the increasingly deadly war in Afghanistan gets worse, President Obama in an Oval Office address to the nation announced the end of combat operations in Iraq -- a war that he pledged to end during his 2008 campaign for the White House. While Obama highlighted the reduction of US troops from 144,000 when he took office in January 2009, to 50,000 today -- the drawdown comes at a time of escalating violence and the failure of Iraqi political parties to form a new government after national elections in March. The troop withdrawal does not include 95,000 private military contractors, with the US State Department planning to increase the number of security contractors working for them in Iraq.
