-- Chuck Collins, director of the Institute for Policy Studies' Project on Inequality and the Common Good, on upcoming deficit reduction battles

Interview with Chuck Collins, director of the Institute for Policy Studies' Project on Inequality and the Common Good, conducted by Scott Harris
There was high drama on Capitol Hill, echoed in the nation's media, as an 11th hour deal was struck between the Obama White House and Congress to avert a government shutdown over approval of federal funds for the remaining 2011 budget. Of the $38 billion in cuts fought for and won by the GOP that still must be approved by the House and Senate, most were in spending on health, education, transportation and the environment. Programs affected include community AIDS treatment projects and aid to low-income mothers and children. Other programs taking severe hits were those that funded research into developing renewable energy and energy efficiency as well as promoting clean drinking water. Story continues
Interview with Bruce Ackerman, Yale law professor, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
As accused WikiLeaks whistleblower Army Specialist Pfc. Bradley Manning spends his tenth month in solitary confinement at the Marine brig in Quantico, Va., his treatment has aroused opposition on many fronts. Bloggers at FireDogLake.com, have taken up his cause, and author Greg Mitchell just published a book about Manning, whose trial date has not yet been set. And in the April 28 issue of The New York Review of Books, Yale law professor Bruce Ackerman and Harvard law professor Yochai Benkler published a letter of concern that has already been signed by 300 academics, mostly law professors, calling on the Obama administration to end the military's abusive treatment of Manning -- or justify its conduct, which many experts say amounts to torture.

Interview with Kim Ives, editor with Haiti Liberte, conducted by Scott Harris
Haiti’s Nov. 28, 2010 presidential and legislative election, conducted in the impoverished nations still trying to recover from the devastating January 2010 earthquake that killed an estimated 300,000, were labeled by many as deeply flawed. The balloting was criticized for its very low voter turnout, violent demonstrations and accusations of widespread fraud as well as manipulation of the outcome by the United States. The two candidates who moved on to compete in the March 20 second round election were bawdy singer Michel "Sweet Mickey" Martelly and Mirlande Manigat, a former first lady and senator.
