"Democratic candidates try to get their votes from average working people, but they get the bulk of their money for their campaigns from people at the top of our economy. And for those people, they don't want their candidates talking about issues around the distribution of income and wealth."

– Interview with Sam Pizzigati, veteran labor journalist and Institute for Policy Studies author of "The Rich Don't Always Win," on why candidates of both parties largely fail to discuss inequality

Why Candidates of Both Parties Avoided Debate on Rising Economic Inequality in 2014 Campaign

MP3 Interview with Sam Pizzigati, veteran labor journalist and Institute for Policy Studies associate fellow, conducted by Scott Harris

The results of the 2014 midterm election were decidedly bad news for Democratic Party candidates from coast to coast. Republicans took control of the U.S. Senate, gaining at least seven seats, expanded their majority in the House of Representatives by 12 seats and won more governor’s mansions and state legislatures. The few bright spots for progressive activists were seen in statewide and local referendums. Voters in Alaska, Arkansas, Illinois, Nebraska and South Dakota all approved ballot questions boosting the minimum wage. Colorado and North Dakota defeated so called “personhood” measures restricting reproductive rights. Colorado and Oregon voters approved ballots mandating the labeling of GMO foods. Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C. favored legalizing marijuana. And ballot measures banning natural gas fracking won eight ballots at the city and county level.  Story continues

Climate Change Activist Groups Gear Up to Fight New GOP Senate Majority Push to Build Keystone XL Pipeline

MP3 Interview with Karthik Ganapathy, U.S. communications manager with the climate change group 350.org, conducted by Scott Harris

It’s a sad irony that in less than two months after the world’s largest protest confronting climate change in New York City on Sept. 21, the U.S. midterm election conferred all political power in the U.S. Congress to the Republican party. The GOP largely dismisses the science behind the assertion that climate change is a dire threat to the planet. Perhaps the most determined foe of climate change policy in Washington is Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the likely next chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Inhofe, a proud climate science denier, has often stated that global warming is a hoax and that a warmer planet may have a beneficial effect on our lives.  Story continues

Young Activist Explains Her Deep Commitment to Reverse Climate Change

MP3 Interview with Sean Glenn, climate change activist and Great March for Climate Action participant, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

The first week of November saw daily nonviolent civil disobedience actions at the offices of FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, in Washington, D.C. The protest was organized by a group called Beyond Extreme Energy. Activists from the shale fields of Pennsylvania joined dozens of supporters in an effort to block entrances to the building to protest FERC's approval of almost all the natural gas infrastructure proposals that come before it.  Story continues
