Shooting Death of Trayvon Martin Provokes National Debate on Racial Profiling

Interview with Jin Hee Lee, assistant counsel with the Criminal Justice Practice Group, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, conducted by Scott Harris

profiling

The tragic Feb. 26 shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a volunteer neighborhood watch captain in Sanford, Fla., has focused the nation’s attention on the issue of racial profiling and its sometimes fatal consequences. The fact that the shooter, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, has not been arrested, despite having a record of being previously arrested for assaulting a police officer in 2005 and a history of domestic violence, adds to the feeling of many in Florida and around the country, that race played a role in how the police handled the case.  Story continues

Federal Court Overturns EPA Revocation of Mountain Top Removal Coal Mine Permit

Interview with Chuck Nelson, anti-MTR activist and chairman of the board of the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

Mountaintop removal coal mining is the process of blowing up mountain tops to access the coal seams underneath, and dumping the rocks and earth into valleys below. Citing major environmental damage if the project proceeded, including the burial of miles of mountain streams, this was the first time the EPA had rescinded an already-granted permit from the Army Corps of Engineers.  Story continues

Interview with John Cavanagh, director of the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris

99percent

The nation’s first Occupy Wall Street protest encampment in New York City’s Zuccotti Park last September had a dramatic effect both on the morale of progressive activists and on the focus of America’s national debate. The actions of a small number of mostly young people who decided that a prolonged protest camp was the only way to communicate their message calling attention to the nation’s growing income inequality and a failed and corrupt political system, struck a chord with millions of Americans reeling from the Great Recession and decades of declining economic fortunes.  Story continues
