"This could be seen in a large way, as a backlash, against not just austerity policies in Britain of the past five years, but also, the longer-term backlash against globalization dynamics that began back in the Reagan-Thatcher period."

– Nina Eichacker, lecturer in economics at Bentley University and a member of the Dollars and Sense collective, on the Brexit vote to leave the EU

EU Austerity Policies and Dim Economic Prospects Set Stage for UK's Brexit Vote

MP3 Interview with Nina Eichacker, lecturer in economics at Bentley University and a member of the Dollars and Sense collective, conducted by Scott Harris

brexit

Great Britain upended the status quo across Europe when a slim majority of the nation’s voters cast ballots on June 23 to leave the European Union. Britain first joined the European Economic Community in 1973, which in 1993 was transformed into the European Union. Financial markets across the globe reacted to the Brexit vote with major losses and volatility, while the British pound fell to its lowest value in 31 years.  Story continues

Colombia and FARC Guerrillas Reach Breakthrough Agreement on Bilateral Cease-Fire

MP3 Interview with Mario A. Murillo, professor in the department of Radio, Television and Film at Hofstra University, conducted by Scott Harris

colombia

On June 23, the Colombian government, under President Juan Manuel Santos and the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, led by Timoleon Timochenko, reached an historic agreement on a bilateral ceasefire and the rebels’ disarmament, which now clears a path toward the possible end of more than 50 years of civil war. Negotiations which have been underway in Havana since 2012, with the Cuban government acting as mediator, may conclude with a formal peace agreement signed on July 20, Colombia’s independence day. A final peace deal will require the approval of Colombian voters in a national referendum, which has not as yet been scheduled.  Story continues

Deadlocked Supreme Court Effectively Kills Obama Deportation Deferral Program

MP3 Interview with Joe Foran, immigration activist with Unidad Latina en Accion, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

deportation

A Latino activist group in New Haven, Connecticut had scheduled a protest for June 23 to denounce the killing of nine teachers in the Mexican state of Oaxaca - and U.S. complicity through its funding of Plan Merida, which provides millions of dollars for the Mexican government to buy weapons to fight the drug war. But by the time of the protest, they'd added a press conference to denounce that morning's Supreme Court tie vote that blocked President Obama's program to allow five million undocumented immigrants with U.S.-born or legal resident children to stay in the U.S.  Story continues
