Tonight on Political Analysis, Steve and Sandy present: "Tipping Point: From Ferguson to Palestine: The People Take a Stand.” From the occupied territories of Palestine to the streets of Yemen, Iraq, Pakistan, Brazil -- and countless other countries -- the outrage over what can best be described as a systemic, institutionalized form of oppression — or, in many cases, Apartheid — is becoming palpable across the globe. As an increasingly dark picture emerges of what some still call the “New World Order,” the connections between war, energy, the economy, accelerating climate change and the draconian militarization of policing — once considered the purview of “radical journalists” or even “conspiracy theorists” — seem to have finally gotten the world's attention. Sandy and Steve discuss whether we may be seeing the beginnings of a "world solidarity movement?"
Tonight on Political Analysis, Sandy and Steve present WAR, WAR EVERYWHERE --Climate Crisis, Criminal Connections and Corporate Complicity. From the occupied territories of Palestine to the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, the outrage over what can best be described as a systemic, institutionalized form of oppression -- or Apartheid -- is becoming palpable across the globe. As an increasingly dark picture emerges of what some still call the "New World Order," the connections between war, energy, the economy, accererating climate change and the increasingly draconian militarization of policing -- once considered the purview of "radical journalists" or even "conspiracy theorists" -- now scream at us to take notice. This Thursday, August 21, Steve and Sandy talk about those connections -- and much, much more.
Tonight on Political Analysis, Steve Horn and Sandy LeonVest are joined during the first half-hour by Steven Donziger, the controversial attorney for the plaintiffs in the Ecuadorean lawsuit against Chevron. During the second half of the show, San Francisco (Treasure Island) resident and Treasure Island Health Network founder Kathryn Lundgren updates listeners on her epic struggle with the "powers that be" (which include the US Navy and Treasure Island's business and political establishments) to get justice for the residents of Treasure Island, who have been exposed to chemical and radioactive toxins for years, and are now either being unceremoniously displaced, ignored or forced (by economic necessity) to stay on the island.
Tonight on Political Analysis, Sandy Leon Vest and Steve Horn present part one of a series we are calling (exactly what it is): THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS. Right now, the planet on which we all depend for our survival is at the precipice -- quite literally, on the verge of a catastrophic water shortage. Worse still, what remains of the world's water supply is rapidly being poisoned, polluted and contaminated with everything from industrial waste, fertilizers, fracking (and other) chemicals to radioactive waste and toxic algae. Sandy and Steve are joined by world-renowned Hydrologist and lecturer Dr. James Famiglietti and journalist/activist Michael Leonardi to talk about the unequivocal urgency of preserving and conserving (what's left of) our global water supply.
