This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Nov. 26, 2014 for week ending Dec. 5, 2014

"The real challenge here is to take this understandable and justifiable frustration and anger, and channel that into changing the system. Into changing the way police forces do their work, the way police officers are recruited, the kind of oversight that exists. To change the entire culture of fear and hatred between races that allows this kind of a situation to develop."

– Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association on the rising anger over police violence in communities of color after the grand jury in Ferguson voted not to indict police Officer Darren Wilson

Ferguson Streets Explode in Anger After Grand Jury Opts Not to Indict Darren Wilson

MP3 Interview with Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, conducted by Scott Harris

ferguson

Not long after St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced the decision of the Missouri grand jury not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed unarmed African American teenager Michael Brown on Aug. 9, the streets of Ferguson exploded in anger and violence. After a dozen buildings were looted and set on fire, and more than 150 gun shots were heard, local police fired tear gas on protesters and arrested 82 in a night filled with chaos and rage. Since the grand jury announcement, mostly peaceful protest rallies have been held in more than a dozen cities across the U.S.  Story continues

Obama Immigration Executive Order Provokes GOP Rage, Inspires Activists to Agitate for Comprehensive Reform

MP3 Interview with Daniel Altschuler, Long Island coordinator with the group, Make The Road New York, conducted by Scott Harris

immigration

President Obama announced his long anticipated executive order on immigration in a televised address from the White House on Nov. 20. Undeterred by the Democrats recent loss of the U.S. Senate in the midterm election, Mr. Obama offered temporary legal status to more than 4 million undocumented immigrants, along with an indefinite reprieve from deportation and the issuing of work permits. The response from the Republican Party was immediate and hostile, with GOP Congressional leaders threatening to do everything possible to block Mr. Obama’s initiative. A handful of conservative legislators talked about launching impeachment proceedings, while others openly discussed having the president arrested for violating the constitution – and predictions of violence erupting across the country in response to the order.  Story continues

After Midterm Election Defeats, Pro-Choice Activists Brace for Renewed Efforts to Further Erode Access to Abortion

MP3 Interview with Amanda Allen, state legislative counsel with the Center for Reproductive Rights, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

abortion

The past two years have seen escalating attacks on abortion rights at the state level as conservative majorities took control of many state legislatures and governors' offices. According to the Guttmacher Institute, more anti-choice legislation was passed between 2011 and 2013 than in the previous ten years. Now, in the wake of the 2014 midterm elections, Republican majorities and super-majorities will be taking control of even more legislatures and additional Republican governors have been elected to office.  Story continues
