Egypt: The Latest in Long History of Popular Revolts Against Repressive U.S.-Backed Regimes

RealAudio RealAudio  podcast MP3

Interview with Stephen Zunes, professor of politics, conducted by Scott Harris.

Editor's note: This interview was conducted Jan. 31, 2011, before street battles between anti-government activists and Mubarak supporters broke out in Tahrir Square.

mubarakprotest The people of Tunisia sparked popular revolts across the Middle East when they took to the streets to demand the ouster of their president. Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, who held power in Tunisia for 23 years, fled into exile with his family to Saudi Arabia after protests over economic issues gained momentum across the North African nation. Demonstrations against other authoritarian governments soon spread to Yemen, Lebanon, Jordan and the Arab world's most populous nation, Egypt. Story continues

Legalization, An Alternative to the Costly, Failed U.S. War on Drugs

RealAudio RealAudio  podcast MP3

Interview with Terry Nelson, a retired U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agent, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

drug In October 2009, the U.S. Border Patrol fired employee Bryan Gonzalez just before his two-year probationary period was up. He was terminated for the personal opinions he expressed several months earlier to a fellow officer. Gonzalez told his co-worker that the best way to reduce drug-related violence on the U.S.-Mexico border was by legalizing drugs. He also stated that as a Mexican-American, he understood why many Mexicans felt they had no choice but to try to enter the U.S. without documents in search of jobs. On Jan. 20 of this year, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico filed a lawsuit against the Border Patrol for firing Gonzalez on the basis of his personal beliefs expressed in a casual conversation, rather than his job performance.

Coordinated Campaign Targets Public Employees Unions Across the U.S.

Interview with Mark Brenner, director of Labor Notes magazine, conducted by Scott Harris

labor With cities and states across the U.S. struggling with the bad economy, decreased tax revenue and budget shortfalls, some governors and legislators are campaigning hard to reduce the compensation and power of public employees unions. Governors in many states are demanding layoffs, cuts in state employee benefits and wage freezes. But along with the predictable calls for austerity caused by severe budget crises, some conservative politicians and activists are seeking to cripple the power of labor by blocking the mandatory collection of union dues, and denying state workers the right to organize unions and negotiate contracts.
