Interview with Arun Gupta, a founding editor of New York City’s Indypendent Newspaper, The Occupied Wall Street Journal and The Occupied USA Today, conducted by Scott Harris
Just two days short of their second month anniversary, New York City police swept into lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, the original site of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement evicted activists, arrested 200 people committing non-violent civil disobedience -- and carted their tents and property away. A member of the city council and journalists were arrested during the raid. New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg justified the eviction, saying that health and safety conditions had become intolerable in the park, a statement disputed by Occupy activists. Bloomberg said protesters could return to the park, but without tents or tarps, an order upheld by a New York state Supreme Court judge. Story continues
Excerpt of speech by Clea Thauin, international advocacy officer with the prisoners' rights group Addameer, recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus
In mid-October, Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic party that controls Gaza, agreed to a prisoner swap. One thousand twenty-seven Palestinian political prisoners were traded for the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who has been held by Hamas since June 2006. Many Israelis were horrified by the release of Palestinians, some of whom had been convicted for violent crimes against Israelis and some Palestinians were angry that many of the prisoners released were sent into exile.

Interview with Susan Casey Lefkowitz, director of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s international program, conducted by Scott Harris
Under pressure from an effective grassroots campaign opposing government approval of the proposed 1,700 mile-long TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline that would bring oil from Alberta, Canada’s tar sands operations to U.S. Gulf coast refineries in Texas, the Obama administration announced a 12- to 18-month delay in making a decision on the pipeline to allow further study of the project’s environmental impact. The Nov. 10 White House announcement followed a concerted effort from a large coalition of environmental groups to derail the project that included acts of nonviolent civil disobedience resulting in over 1,200 arrests in September.
