This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Jan. 8, 2014 for week ending Jan. 17, 2014

"The economic system we have set up that allows corporations to make billions of dollars doing something which is so destructive, we have to stop that, enough of that. ... We can't expect oil companies to stop on their own. They're just corporations; they're just money-making machines. They're not going to do it. We've got to tell them. That's what we're attempting to do."

– Interview with Peter Wilcox, captain of the Greenpeace ship, "Arctic Sunrise", on their nonviolent direct action protest designed to draw attention to the environmental hazards of drilling for fossil fuels in the Arctic. Wilcox and his crew recently spent two months in a Russian prison as a result of their attempt to board and scale a Russian-owned Gazprom oil drilling rig in the Arctic Ocean.

On Sept. 18, members of the environmental activist group Greenpeace boarded and attempted to scale a Russian-owned Gazprom oil drilling rig in the Arctic Ocean. The Russian military responded to the nonviolent direct action protest – designed to draw attention to the environmental hazards of drilling for fossil fuels in the Arctic – by firing guns and brandishing knives. All 28 crew members of the Greenpeace ship, Arctic Sunrise, and two freelance journalists accompanying them were arrested by the Russian government. The activists and their ship were taken to the northern Russian city of Murmansk.  Story continues

Jan. 1, 2014 marked the start date for several important provisions of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and, despite the shaky rollout of the federal website in the fall, more than 2.1 million Americans have signed up for private health insurance through the federal and state health exchanges. That's in addition to the 3 million young adults who have been able to retain health coverage under their parents' insurance policies, and the addition of 3.9 million Americans now eligible for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program in states that agreed to expand Medicaid eligibility paid for by federal funds. Several of the new health insurance provisions relate specifically to women.  Story continues

It’s been a little over one year since the unspeakable violence that claimed the lives of 20 first-graders and 6 educators at Newtown, Conn.’s Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. Not long after family members, friends and neighbors from Newtown and people across the country took time to mark that grim day, one year later, the Connecticut State police released a final report on their investigation into one of the nation’s most disturbing massacres – and new details about the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza.  Story continues
