"(The TPP) makes it easier for big corporations to offshore more American jobs ... pits American workers more directly in competition with, for example, workers who make less than 65 cents an hour; includes monopoly rights for big pharmaceutical companies that raise medicine prices and allows corporations to challenge public interest policies that they can say affects their ability to make a future profit."

Broad Coalition Campaigns to Prevent U.S. Approval of Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement

MP3 Interview with Jessa Boehner, international program associate with Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch, conducted by Scott Harris

Trade representatives of the U.S. and 11 other Pacific Rim nations gathered in New Zealand on Feb. 4, to formally sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement that's designed to integrate 40 percent of the world's economy. Over the next two years, the controversial trade pact, known as the TPP, must still be ratified by at least six original signatories representing 85 percent of the total GDP of the 12 nations that signed the agreement.  Story continues

Iraq War Vote Shadows Clinton Candidacy

MP3 Interview with Stephen Zunes, professor of politics & coordinator of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of San Francisco, conducted by Meinda Tuhus

Apart from mentions of Hillary Clinton's emails when she was secretary of state, foreign policy issues have not received much attention thus far in the Democratic presidential nomination campaign. While Republican candidates try to outdo each other in the machismo of their proposed harsh treatment of refugees, targeting family members of alleged terrorists and attacking rogue nations, Democrats have mostly focused on issues like the economy, higher education and health care, with some talk about how they'd tackle climate change.  Story continues

UN Panel Says WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Being Arbitrarily Detained

MP3 Interview with Carey Shenkman, U.S. based attorney working on behalf of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, conducted by Scott Harris

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, an Australian citizen, was granted asylum in Ecuador's London embassy three-and-a-half years ago as he faced extradition to Sweden to answer questions on rape and sexual assault charges. While Assange denied the allegations, he refused to travel to Sweden fearing that the government there would extradite him to the U.S. to face serious charges for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified U.S. military and diplomatic documents in 2010. Those documents were a great embarrassment to the U.S., exposing covert spying and military operations, as well as a video recording of U.S. helicopter gunships killing Iraqi civilians and two Reuters reporters.  Story continues
