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 Dec. 9, 2015 for week ending Dec. 18, 2015

"When you combine things like, for example, hate speech with insurrectionism – the belief that as an individual you have a right to use force of arms to engage in political violence if you feel repressed – it's a really lethal cocktail out there right now."

– Ladd Everitt, director of communications with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, commenting on the almost daily occurrence of mass shooting incidents across the U.S.

San Bernardino and Colorado Springs Mass Shootings Provoke Renewed Gun Control Debate

MP3 Interview with Ladd Everitt, director of communications with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, conducted by Scott Harris

shooting

Over the last two weeks, the nation has witnessed two high-profile mass shooting incidents, first in Colorado Springs on Nov. 27, where a lone gunman attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic that killed three and wounded nine. Then on Dec. 2, a couple attacked a holiday gathering at the Inland Regional Center building in San Bernardino, California, killing 14 and wounding 21 others. One of the shooters, Syed Farook worked with and knew his victims, in an attack that appears to be motivated by extremist Islamist ideology.  Story continues

Climate Activists Challenge Abuse During Maryland Civil Disobedience Arrest

MP3 Interview with Heather Doyle, climate activist with Stopping Extraction and Exports Destruction (SEED), conducted by Melinda Tuhus

climate

Last February, climate activists Carling Sothoron and Heather Doyle climbed atop a crane in order to interrupt construction of Dominion Energy's Cove Point liquefied natural gas export terminal in Lusby, Maryland, a $3.8 billion project on the shores of Chesapeake Bay. Opponents say the terminal and related industrial infrastructure will bring noise, toxic air pollution and the possibility of an explosion to residents living in the neighborhood located near the site. They also say the terminal will greatly increase fracking throughout the Marcellus shale region where natural gas is extracted; and blow a hole in any attempt to rein in carbon pollution, the major contributor to climate change.  Story continues

Consumers and Fishing Industry Oppose FDA Approval of Genetically Modified Salmon

MP3 Interview with Patty Lovera, assistant director with the group Food & Water Watch, conducted by Scott Harris

salmon

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) recent approval of genetically-modified salmon created by the AquaBounty company of Massachusetts, to be sold to consumers across the country, is meeting with strong opposition from consumer, environmental groups and the fishing industry. The genetically-engineered fish, known as the AquAdvantage salmon has genes from three other species including DNA from an Atlantic salmon, a growth gene from a Pacific Chinook salmon, and a growth "on switch" from an eel-like fish, the ocean pout. The sale of what some critics now call the "Frankenfish," will mark the first time that a genetically engineered animal has been approved to enter America's food system.  Story continues
