Interview with Vijay Prashad, professor and director of International Studies at Trinity College, conducted by Scott Harris
Shaky video recorded the gruesome end of Libyan dictator Col. Muammar Gadhafi’s life on Oct. 20 as he tried to escape his embattled hometown of Surte in a car convoy that was hit by a NATO airstrike. An apparently wounded Gadhafi ran from his car and sought refuge in a drainage pipe. When rebels captured him, he was beaten, humiliated and executed with a gunshot to the head. The grisly images distributed on the Internet were soon seen by millions around the world. Before being buried in an unmarked grave, Gadhafi’s body and that of his son Mutassim, were transported to the city of Misrata, where they were put on public display in a warehouse cold storage locker.

Interview with Riki Ott, marine toxicologist, activist, author and former commercial fisher, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
In the never-ending quest for harder-to-access fossil fuels, oil spills, gas explosions and pipeline leaks are everyday occurrences. The impacts of the quest for oil on ecosystems – while not always fully understood – are easy to see. But the effect on human health is often harder to determine and serious problems are often misdiagnosed or just dismissed out of hand. Story continues
Interview with Tom Hayden, former California legislator, activist and founder of Students for a Democratic Society, conducted by Scott Harris
Just over five weeks old, the new and growing Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York’s Zuccotti Park on Sept. 17 has spread to hundreds of cities nationwide and across the world. Thousands of activists, decrying corporate greed and political corruption, have established encampments in parks, on the grounds of state capitals, city halls and in the shadow of large financial institutions. Participants, many of them young, but of all ages and from all walks of life, have begun creating communities based on horizontal, direct democracy and making decisions by consensus about their political stands and local activities. Students, unions and health care workers are among the groups that have made common cause with the new movement. Story continues
