"It really breaks my heart that I have to look at young people and try to continue to convince them that voting is the way. I don't concretely think that if I don't vote for the right candidate I should be punished by being killed in the street."

– Tory Russell, co-founder of the youth-led group Hands Up United, on the national movement to end police violence in communities of color.

Injustice Seen in Ferguson is Rallying Cry for Movement Confronting Police Violence Across U.S.

MP3 Interview with Tory Russell, co-founder of the youth-led group Hands Up United, conducted by Scott Harris

handsup

In the week since the Missouri grand jury announced its verdict opting not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed African American teenager Michael Brown, the local community is assessing the damage caused by riots that burned down a dozen buildings, as well as the persistent sense of injustice felt by many residents. But beyond Ferguson, the Michael Brown case has become a rallying cry for activists protesting police violence across the country. In addition to hundreds of solidarity demonstrations held on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, organizers called for a school and job walkout on Dec. 1.  Story continues

With Two-State Solution Dead, Will Palestinians Launch a Third Intifada?

MP3 Interview with Philip Weiss, founder and co-editor of Mondoweiss.net, conducted by Scott Harris

two-state

Over the past six months, violence has swelled in and around Jerusalem, the city with religious sites holy to three of world’s major religions. The first incident occurred in June, two months after Israeli Palestinian peace talks led by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry collapsed. On June 13, three Israeli teenagers were abducted and killed while hitchhiking in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Then a Palestinian teenager was seized and burned to death by Jewish assailants in a suspected revenge attack. These crimes were followed by the Israeli military assault on Gaza where 2,100 Palestinians were killed, most of them civilians and 70 Israelis died, most of them soldiers.  Story continues

Sand Mined for Fracking Wells in Midwest Generates Environmental and Health Concerns

MP3 Interview with Bobby King, an organizer with the Minnesota-based Land Stewardship Project, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

fracking

A Minnesota company that mines sand to supply fracking wells, a controversial method of extracting natural gas from shale bedrock was recently fined $85,000 in mid-November for several violations, including emitting unlawfully high levels of toxic dust. So-called "frac sand" is the least well-known of three kinds of raw materials used to frack a well. Other resources used in the fracking method include millions of gallons of water and a toxic brew of chemicals, many of them cancer-causing or endocrine-disrupting. As fracking wells have sprouted up around the country, the extraction method has triggered local opposition due to pollution of the air and groundwater.  Story continues
