Interview with T. Kumar, international advocacy director with Amnesty International, conducted by Scott Harris

gadhafi

With air strikes, arms supplies and logistical support provided by the U.S.-led NATO military coalition, Libyan rebels who marched into Tripoli on Aug. 21 appear to have succeeded in their goal of overthrowing the 42-year regime of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. With the whereabouts of Gadhafi and several of his sons unknown, plus sporadic firefights in Tripoli and other cities loyal to the Libyan leader, it was not certain at production time how soon the bloodshed would end.  Story continues

Interview with David Goldston, director of government affairs with the Natural Resources Defense Council, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

anti-environmental

Throughout the summer, as debate raged in Congress on raising the nation’s debt ceiling, Republicans in the House were also trying to push through a myriad of anti-environmental riders in the 2012 appropriations bill for the Interior Department and the Environmental Protection Agency. Because Congress broke for its summer recess immediately after reaching a deal to raise the debt ceiling, no action was taken on the appropriations bill with its almost 40 riders. The bill will be taken up again when Congress reconvenes after Labor Day.  Story continues

Interview with May Boeve, executive director with the environmental group 350.org, conducted by Scott Harris

protest

Beginning on Aug. 20, climate activists launched a two-week protest and nonviolent civil disobedience action at the White House to focus attention on the environmental impact of the proposed 1700-mile Keystone XL pipeline that would bring oil from Alberta, Canada’s tar sands operations to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries in Texas. More than 2,000 people have committed to participate in the White House protest sit-in and risk arrest, in what is expected to be one of the largest environmental protests in a generation. Author and 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben was among the first activists arrested of 162 detained in the first three days of the action.  Story continues
