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.

This Week on Between The Lines

Posted May 23, 2012 for week ending June 1, 2012

IRAQ WAR VETERANS THROW MEDALS AT NATO SUMMIT PROTEST

"At the very end, the closing ceremony that the veterans did to return their medals was just beyond moving. It really brought home some of the people who are truly affected by NATO's policies and actions around the world – the real damage that that can cause."

– Pat Hunt, organizer of the NATO Summit Protests

Judge's Preliminary Injunction Bars Indefinite Military Detention of U.S. Citizens Under NDAA

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Carl J. Mayer, an attorney who filed a lawsuit on behalf of seven plaintiffs challenging Section 1021 of the NDAA, conducted by Scott Harris

NDAA

On Dec. 31, 2011 President Obama signed the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, which carries several ominous provisions. However, Section 1021 of the NDAA is the most alarming in that it can be broadly interpreted to empower the current, and all future presidents, to indefinitely imprison U.S. citizens and non-citizens who were part of or “substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners." Persons accused under this provision can be held by the U.S. military indefinitely or transferred to any nation in the world, without charge, trial or access to an attorney.  Story continues

Militarized Police Force and Terrorism Charges Greet NATO Protesters in Chicago

Interview with Pat Hunt, an organizer with the coalition Protesting the NATO Summit, conducted by Scott Harris

NATO

From the moment plans were announced to hold the NATO military coalition and G8 economic summit meetings in Chicago during May, peace and economic justice activists began organizing demonstrations to oppose the war in Afghanistan while linking military spending to harsh budget cuts and unemployment. But in March, the White House abruptly changed the location of the G8 summit, moving it to Camp David in Maryland. Undaunted, protest organizers moved ahead with their plans and thousands of activists arrived in Chicago to greet more than 50 world leaders as they arrived in Chicago for the NATO gathering May 20 and 21.  Story continues

Connecticut Education Reform Law Aims to Close America's Worst Racial Achievement Gap

MP3  MP3

Interview with Gary Holder-Winfield, chair of the Connecticut General Assembly's Black and Hispanic Caucus, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

education

Two days before the Connecticut legislature ended its 2012 session at midnight on May 9, the state House and Senate passed a landmark education reform bill that is aimed at closing the state's widest-in-the-country racial achievement gap. When elected, Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy declared education reform was his highest priority. But when the legislative session began in February, many players thought he sabotaged the process by sarcastically stating that all teachers have to do to earn tenure "is show up for four years." That comment provoked the two teachers' unions in the state, the Connecticut Education Association and the Connecticut Federation of Teachers, to actively oppose the governor’s proposal.  Story continues
