Award-winning Investigative Journalist Robert Parry (1949-2018)

Award-winning investigative journalist and founder/editor of, Robert Parry has passed away. His ground-breaking work uncovering Reagan-era dirty wars in Central America and many other illegal and immoral policies conducted by successive administrations and U.S. intelligence agencies, stands as an inspiration to all in journalists working in the public interest.

Robert had been a regular guest on our Between The Lines and Counterpoint radio shows -- and many other progressive outlets across the U.S. over four decades.

His penetrating analysis of U.S. foreign policy and international conflicts will be sorely missed, and not easily replaced. His son Nat Parry writes a tribute to his father: Robert Parry’s Legacy and the Future of Consortiumnews.

As Obama Makes Historic Visit to Hiroshima, Scholars Urge Action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons

MP3 Interview with Paul Kawika Martin, political and communications director with Peace Action, conducted by Scott Harris


Barack Obama will be the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Japanese city of Hiroshima, the site of the world’s first atomic bomb attack during the waning days of World War II. Obama, who will be in Japan for a G7 Summit meeting, will tour Hiroshima on May 27, the city where an estimated 140,000 civilians died after the U.S. dropped the atomic bomb on Aug. 6, 1945. A second American nuclear bomb targeted the Japanese city of Nagasaki on Aug. 9. Japan surrendered less than one week later.  Story continues

Activists Defeat Gas Pipeline Projects, Work to Recruit NIMBY Neighbors to Climate Fight

MP3 Interview with Becky Meier, anti-pipeline activist, conducted by Melinda Tuhus


Around the United States, proposed fracked gas pipelines are being cancelled, even as many more such projects are applying for permits through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, which must grant a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to enable these projects to be built. Those pipeline projects that have been cancelled (or "suspended" and not likely to be revived) include the Northeast Energy Direct pipeline that would have traversed the states of Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts and New Hampshire; the Constitution pipeline in Pennsylvania and New York, and the Pacific Connector pipeline in Oregon. Reasons for the cancellations vary, from a lack of customers to buy the gas, to the failure of companies to win permits through state health regulators. In every case, however, opposition by local residents and homeowners has been critical to these victories.  Story continues

Growing Worldwide Movement Resists Rising Economic Inequality and Austerity

MP3 Excerpt of a talk by Tariq Ali, a British writer and filmmaker, speaking at the Left Forum conference, recorded and produced by Scott Harris


There’s no doubt that we’re living in a time where there is enormous discontent, if not anger, about the failure of both our political and economic systems here in the U.S. Millions of working people across the country have seen their standard of living steadily decline – and what’s worse, parents see a future where their children will likely have less economic opportunity and security than they did. In short, what we’re seeing is the bubble bursting on the so-called American Dream – and the erosion of the middle class.  Story continues
