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 March 9, 2016 for week ending March 18, 2016

"This is the single most important political assassination since the (Honduran) coup, and the fact that they've killed Berta Cáceres is a sign that that now anyone could be killed. They have not gone for the top leadership of the social movements up till now."

– Dana Frank, professor of history at the University of California, Santa Cruz, on the murder of Honduran indigenous land rights activist Berta Cáceres.

Indigenous Activist Berta Cáceres Slain Amid Honduras' Rising Political Violence

MP3 Interview with Dana Frank, professor of history at the University of California, Santa Cruz, conducted by Scott Harris

honduras

The Central American nation of Honduras is well known for having one of the highest murder rates in the world that includes violence attributed to narco-trafficking, gang conflicts and street crime. But Honduras is also the most dangerous country for environmentalists, where 116 eco-activists were killed in 2014, many of them defending indigenous communities and lands. The March 3 murder of Berta Cáceres, winner of the 2015 Goldman environmental prize, is the latest tragic news from Honduras. Cáceres, who was shot by two unknown assailants who broke into her home, led the Council of Popular and Indigenous People's Organizations of Honduras, or COPINH, that actively opposed the construction of a proposed dam on the Gualcarque river, an area considered sacred by the Lenca people. She had previously reported receiving numerous death threats from police, soldiers and local landowners because of her work.  Story continues

Reproductive Rights Advocates Hopeful Supreme Court Will Overturn Restrictive Texas Abortion Law

MP3 Interview with Gretchen Borchelt, vice president of reproductive rights and health of the National Women's Law Center, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

abortion

The Texas law passed in 2013 that has severely restricted women’s access to abortion was appealed and reached the Supreme Court this term, where both sides argued their case on March 2. The law required doctors performing abortions to be given admitting privileges at local hospitals and required abortion clinics to meet the standards of ambulatory surgical centers. Similar laws have passed in many other states. Supporters of these laws maintain that they were implemented to protect women's health. But women's health providers and advocates say such laws have had the opposite effect by denying women constitutionally protected health care. The high court’s ruling in the Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt case could come any time up through the end of the Court's term this June.  Story continues

'Bank Whistleblowers United' Challenge Presidential Candidates to Reject Dirty Wall Street Money

MP3 Interview with Michael Winston, former executive at Countrywide Financial & cofounder of Bank Whistleblowers United, conducted by Scott Harris

whistleblowers

Michael Winston had a successful career as an executive at five Fortune 100 corporations for over 30 years. Most recently when he was employed as a high-ranking executive at Countrywide Financial, he tried to stop the fraud, corruption and deception he observed at the mortgage lender in advance of the worldwide 2008 financial collapse. His warnings were dismissed or ignored by management and he was eventually fired. Winston subsequently took Countrywide and Bank of America to court, winning what the trial judge called an “overwhelming” jury verdict. Though the verdict was later overturned by an appeals court, Winston’s legal fight was profiled in a Salon magazine article titled, "Wall-Street's Greatest Enemy: The Man Who Knows Too Much."  Story continues
