Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

"They launched 110 Tomahawk missiles ... there are charred bodies all over the place now. This is not to prevent a temporary humanitarian disaster. This is really about regime change and siding with one side. I don't trust the motivations of the United States."



--Michael Mandel, professor of law at York University in Toronto, Canada on U.S. airstrikes in Libya

Not long after the United Nation's Security Council approved a resolution to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya, the U.S., France and Britain launched multiple air strikes targeting Moammar Gadhafi's air defenses and ground forces. The U.N. Security Council vote on March 17 was supported by 10 nations, with Russia, China, Germany, Brazil and India abstaining. Libya's opposition movement, which grew into an armed rebellion when Gadhafi ordered the violent suppression of unarmed protesters, was by all accounts saved by the international air strikes, as they were in full retreat and preparing to make a last stand in the rebel-held city of Benghazi.  Story continues

Workers at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant complex, have been working around the clock to repair the failed safety systems of six nuclear reactors, damaged by a devastasting tsunami triggered by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake on March 11. Efforts were underway to reconnect all of the reactors to the electrical grid, to power cooling systems that can help reduce radioactive emissions into the environment. The number 3 reactor unit, powered by a mix of uranium and plutonium - or "Mox," is being monitored closely, as the fuel is volatile and plutonium is one of the most toxic substances known to man.  Story continues

Study: Wisconsin's GOP Anti-Union Legislation will Disproportionately Harm State's Women

Legislation weakening public employee union collective bargaining rights rammed through the GOP-controlled Wisconsin legislature by Republican Gov. Scott Walker was put on hold by a county judge in Madison, who ruled that its passage may have violated the state's open meetings law, one of the strongest in the country. If the ruling is upheld, the legislature will have to vote on the bill again. Because one Republican legislator voted against the bill the first time, opponents hoped more Republicans will defect to defeat the measure, or that it may be modified in order to gain passage.  Story continues
