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.

EGYPT'S TAHRIR SQUARE FILLS IN PROTEST AT MUBARAK SENTENCING

"(The thousands of protesters) are demanding the chief prosecutor be removed and there be a retrial because he didn't provide sufficient evidence to warrant a death sentence for Hosni Mubarak and the interior minister. Their life-sentence could end in an appeal and their acquittal."

– Seif Da'Na on the dismissal of corruption charges against the ousted dictator and his sons, and the acquittal of officials whose police orders resulted in 840 deaths and 6,000 injured during Arab Spring

Both men were sentenced to life in prison. But the judges’ decision to dismiss corruption charges against Mubarak and his sons set off major protests in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and other cities across Egypt.  Story continues

eurozone

As Europe searches for a continent-wide solution for its gathering debt crisis, the United States economy is feeling the effects of the recession across the Atlantic. President Obama recently blamed Europe’s economic difficulties, in part, for the recent disappointing jobs report in the U.S. The European Union, comprised of 17 nations using the euro currency and 10 that don’t, is a larger economic bloc than either the U.S. or China.  Story continues

West Virginia is one of the nation’s biggest coal producing states. Coal is transported from the southern Appalachian coal fields by truck, barge and rail, and is often cleaned on site before being shipped to fuel the nation's power plants.
