"Neither side is supposed to be violently attacking the civilians of the other side. Israel has an active duty to protect the people that's under occupation. And the United States recognizes that this is an occupation (of Gaza)."

– Cindy and Craig Corrie, parents of Rachel Corrie, peace activist slain by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza.

gaza

Eight days of violence that began with Israeli airstrikes targeting Gaza militants who fired rockets into Israel – leading to an escalation of more than 1,000 cross-border airstrikes and rocket attacks on both sides, claimed the lives of an estimated 169 Palestinians in Gaza and 6 Israelis – with hundreds more injured. A cease-fire brokered by Egyptian officials went into effect in Nov. 21. In the second phase of the cease-fire agreement, negotiations began in Cairo on Nov. 25 to discuss establishing new border regulations in Gaza.  Story continues

Interview with Joe Lovett, lead attorney with Appalachian Mountain Advocates, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

MTR

On Nov. 15, the Patriot Coal Corp. announced a settlement agreement with the Sierra Club and two Appalachian advocacy groups to phase out mountaintop removal coal mining and eventually all surface mining. The company issued a statement that continuing that form of mining was in neither the company's nor the surrounding communities' best interest, stating that “Patriot Coal recognizes that our mining operations impact the communities in which we operate in significant ways." The Hobet mine complex, the largest mountaintop removal site in Appalachia is among the operations to be shut down. Two dozen activists briefly occupied the complex in July in an effort to draw attention to the destruction wrought by mountaintop removal mining.  Story continues

Interview with David Bacon, former union organizer, photographer and author, conducted by Scott Harris

walmart

In the largest mobilization of workers ever to strike against Walmart, America’s biggest retailer, more than 500 of the store’s employees, union supporters and allies organized 1,000 picket lines in 46 states to protest the company’s low wages, inadequate benefits and retaliation tactics. Nine picketers were arrested during a California protest. The Black Friday strike on the most important shopping day of the year came 18 months after workers founded the OUR Walmart employees organization, backed by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, five months after workers went on strike at a Walmart seafood supplier and seven weeks after the first coast-to-coast strike at Walmart stores.  Story continues
