"This is a highly destabilizing event in French politics and will disrupt and destabilize Europe even more than it already is."

French Election Highlights the Failure to Address Unemployment and Inequality

MP3 Interview with Richard Wolff, visiting professor at New School University’s graduate program in International Affairs and author of the book, “Capitalism's Crisis Deepens: Essays on the Global Economic Meltdown 2010-2014," conducted by Scott Harris

macron

As most polls predicted, the second round of the May 7 French presidential election was won by centrist novice politician and former economy minister Emanuel Macron, defeating Marine Le Pen, leader of the far-right National Front party by a margin of 66 to 34 percent. Macron, a former investment banker, now confronts an economy where 10 percent of French workers are unemployed – and an environment of rising job insecurity and anger which attracted a record number of voters to support Le Pen’s anti-immigrant and xenophobic platform.  Story continues

Palestinian Hunger Strike Calls Attention to Human Rights Violations in Israeli Prisons

MP3 Interview with Sahar Francis, attorney and director of Addameer Prisoners Support & Human Rights Association, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

hunger

On April 17, Palestinian Prisoners’ Day – more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails began a hunger strike to protest the severe conditions of incarceration they’ve suffered, and other violations of their human rights. Their demands focus on family visits, medical care, and greatly restricting the use of solitary confinement. An earlier month-long hunger strike by 1,500 Palestinian prisoners in 2012, made similar demands, and resulted in some gains, especially in reducing the number of prisoners held by Israel in administrative detention.  Story continues

Health Insurance Industry Supports GOP Attempt to Repeal Obamacare Protections

MP3 Interview with Wendell Potter, former health insurance industry executive and best-selling author of "Deadly Spin" and "Nation on the Take", conducted by Scott Harris

health

After several failed attempts, President Trump and the Republican-controlled House of Representatives narrowly passed legislation known as the American Health Care Act to repeal and replace President Obama’s signature Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. The measure, which carried by a 217 to 213 vote, was rushed through the House on May 4 before the Congressional Budget Office could score the bill to assess its cost and impact on national healthcare. But a previous CBO evaluation on a less severe version of the bill found that at least 24 million Americans would lose their health insurance coverage if the AHCA were ever signed into law.  Story continues
