Posted May 11, 2016 for week ending May 20, 2016

"What's important to realize is that this isn't Trump tapping into some sort of subterranean fears that nobody knew was there. This is instead, Trump taking advantage of groundwork that has been laid by the Republican party for the last 50 years."

– Ian Haney López, John H. Boalt professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley, on presidential candidate Donald Trump's blatant racism

Is Trump's Blatant Racism an Opportunity to Build Class Solidarity?

MP3 Interview with Ian Haney López, John H. Boalt professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley, conducted by Scott Harris

trump

Billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump – now the presumptive Republican party presidential candidate – has since he launched his campaign consistently employed racist, xenophobic and misogynist rhetoric to fire up a base made up mostly of white, middle-aged men. He has attacked Mexicans as rapists and murderers, advocated a ban on all Muslims entering the U.S. and insulted women based on sexist stereotypes.  Story continues

Philadelphia Residents Protest Proposed Expansion of Fossil Fuel Refinery in Poor Neighborhood

MP3 Interview with Maxine McCleary, leader with the Philadelphia community group Action United, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

fossil

Ten days of grassroots protest actions all over the world, dubbed "Break Free from Fossil Fuels," May 6 through the 15, was organized by the climate activist group 350.org. One of the first actions was held on May 7 in Philadelphia, where Phil Rinaldi, the owner of Philadelphia Energy Solutions, or PES, wants to expand a massive oil refinery into a giant "energy hub." The project's goal is to build new pipelines and transport more oil into a residential area of Philadelphia – a low-income neighborhood where residents are mostly people of color.  Story continues

With Rising Human Rights Violations in Honduras, Activists Demand Suspension of U.S. Military Aid

MP3 Interview with Alberto Saldamando, counsel to the Indigenous Environmental Network, conducted by Scott Harris

honduras

The March 3 assassination of Honduran indigenous leader Berta Cáceres, winner of the prestigious 2015 Goldman environmental prize, triggered widespread protests in the Central American country and across the globe. Cáceres, who was murdered in her home, led her indigenous Lenca people and the Civic Council of Indigenous and Popular Organizations of Honduras, or COPINH, that actively opposed the construction of the proposed Agua Zarca dam on the Gualcarque river, an area considered sacred by the Lenca. She had previously reported receiving numerous death threats from police, soldiers and local landowners because of her activism. On March 15, her colleague Nelson Garcia of COPINH was also murdered. A growing number of social justice activists, environmentalists and journalists have been killed or have disappeared since the 2009 coup in Honduras.  Story continues
