10,000 REPORTEDLY KILLED IN SYRIA'S MONTHS-LONG UPRISING

"The regime's greatest victory against the uprising since March 2011 has been a near blackout they've been able to impose on reliable reporting. They've banned foreign journalists ... and done a good job casting doubt on the opposition. ... It seems the regime still holds the balance of terror in terms of the amount of military force it brings to bear."

– Chris Toensing on Syria's fractured opposition to the regime and the continuing bloodshed and atrocities

Interview with Chris Toensing, editor of Middle East Report, conducted by Scott Harris

syria

As Syria enters its 16th month of a popular uprising which has killed an estimated 10,000 people, reports of civilian massacres mark an escalation of violence some observers believe has now developed into a civil war. A U.N. report found that 108 civilians were killed, including 49 children and 34 women, in an attack that began on May 25 in the village of Houla, northwest of the city of Homs. Another massacre on June 6 that killed 49 was reported in the town of Qubeir, also near Homs. Human rights groups assert that the heavy bombardment of population centers in opposition strongholds continue across Syria.  Story continues

Wisconsin Recall Election Defeat a Wakeup Call for Progressive and Labor Activists

Interview with Matthew Rothschild, editor of the Progressive Magazine, conducted by Scott Harris

recall

In a stinging defeat for progressive and labor activists, Wisconsin's Republican anti-union Gov. Scott Walker survived an historic recall election by 53 to 46 percent on June 5. Walker's opponent Tom Barrett, who had just a few weeks from his primary win on May 8 to the recall election, was outspent by a 7 to 1 margin, with about 70 percent of Walkers' donations coming in from out-of-state. This was the second defeat for Barrett, the Democratic mayor of Milwaukee, who previously lost to Walker in November 2010.  Story continues

GOP Proposal to Cut $800 Billion from Medicaid Budget Focus of Disability Rights Protest

Interview with Elaine Kolb, disability rights activist, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

medicare

On April 23, 74 disability rights activists were arrested in the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, D.C., there to protest the Republican-led House of Representatives' proposed plan to cut $800 billion from the federal Medicaid budget. The protest was part of the disability rights' group ADAPT's My Medicaid Matters Campaign. ADAPT used to stand for American Disabled for Accessible Public Transportation, but with the passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act in the early 1990s, that battle was largely won. ADAPT now stands for American Disabled for Attendant Programs Today, emphasizing the need for personal care assistance to help disabled citizens to remain in their own homes and not be institutionalized.  Story continues
