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.

After Wall Street's collapse, private equity & hedge funds now aim sights on controlling global food supply

"After the collapse of the housing market and the dot-com bubble, private equity funds and hedge funds looking for new soft commodities are securing agricultural land in Africa that is cheap and close to water, so they can profit while the people of Africa are losing their most fertile lands and starving." -- Anuradha Mittal, executive director of Oakland Institute

Hedge Fund-Financed Land Grab in Africa Triggers Global Food Price Spike, Rise in Hunger

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Anuradha Mittal, executive director of The Oakland Institute, conducted by Scott Harris

africa

A spike in staple food crop prices around the world has forced an estimated 44 million people into poverty over the past year. The international aid and development group Oxfam recently predicted that without substantial reforms to the global agricultural system, food prices could double within the next 20 years – causing millions more to sink into poverty. Oxfam and other groups say that global climate change, speculation in agricultural commodities and the diversion of corn into the production of biofuels are the primary causes of food price increases and the resulting rise in hunger.  Story continues

The fight to save an historic mountaintop battlefield site in West Virginia's coal country inspired hundreds of local residents and out-of-state supporters to undertake a 50-mile march in early June that followed in the footsteps of thousands of coal miners who marched the same route in 1921. The miners were demanding the right to join a union -- in this case, the United Mine Workers of America -- and engage in collective bargaining -- demands that resonate today as those rights are under attack in states where conservative Republicans hold power.  Story continues

Interview with Jon Green, executive director of the Working Families Party of Connecticut , conducted by Scott Harris

sickdays

The 2010 congressional ballot was tagged as a “change” election across the country - with big wins for Republicans and Tea Party activists. The conservatives’ most visible victory was their take over of the House of Representatives while making gains in the U.S. Senate. But the GOP also dramatically increased their control of state legislatures from 14 to 26 – while winning total control of 21 states’ governors' seats and legislatures. In contrast, Democrats now control both the legislature and the executive branch in 11 states, down from 16.  Story continues
