On this episode, Jason sits down with three Washington National Guard Airmen who volunteered for the massive effort to help Afghanistan Evacuees transition to life in America. They traveled to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey where they were a part of more than 200 Airmen working 24 hour operations helping more than 9,500 evacuees continue their journey to the U.S. They worked long, tireless days assisting with tasks like acquiring and distributing everyday household items, hygiene products, clothing, baby products. They helped quarantine refugees who have been exposed to infectious diseases, not just COVID-19, but measles and chickenpox among others. But probably their most important responsibilities they had were the the connections they made along the way. These Airmen were some of the first Americans the refugees saw. The impression that they made on the families and children that were going through a very traumatizing experience, will undoubtedly last a lifetime.

Twenty years ago ((19 Oct 2001)) hundreds of asylum seekers drowned after a small boat sank, trying to reach Australia from Indonesia. The 2001 tragedy remains subject to claims of a cover-up, while the circumstances around its sinking remain unknown. It happened as the Howard government hardened its stance on asylum-seekers, ahead of a Federal election it was in danger of losing. - На этой неделе отмечается печальная дата - 20 лет со дня, когда сотни людей погибли при крушении небольшой лодки, пытаясь добраться до Австралии с целью попросить убежище.

My guest today is the Communications Director for the Utah Hazara Association, Ghazanfar Ali. Until I attended a fund raising event one month ago, I too, knew nothing about the Hazara people nor the tremendous struggle they have endured for generations. Hazaras are Dari-speaking people, thought to be of the Turk-Mongol race and live primarily in the rugged central mountainous core of Afghanistan with an area of approximately 50,000 sq. km. They, much like the Jews, have been systematically marginalized, persecuted and brutalized for centuries simply because they exist. For whatever reason, because they want to live normal productive lives, like their neighbors, they are deemed a threat in Afghanistan and neighboring countries like Pakistan. Thousands upon thousands have fled for their lives to neighboring countries and, of course to Utah and other cities in the US. Ghazanfar Ali shares a brief history of his people internationally and how we can help locally as more and more refugees arrive in our community on a weekly basis, especially in the wake of the recent US Troop withdrawl and subsequent mass exodus from Kabul, for a better opportunity. America and Americans are welcoming, loving, generous and kind. If you're a Christian, the Lord said Love thy neighbor as thyself. These wonderful people ARE our neighbors and need our help. Also according to Ali, below are several immediate ways you can help these people have the basic freedoms and necessities to start their new lives here in Utah. Contact the Utah Hazara Association directly. Humanitarian Visas Personally meet them and ask how they are doing and how you can help them. They need help building a community center where the can gather, worship and support one another. Here are some local Utah organizations you can reach out to should you desire to help further.

It's Casual Friday with a very special guest! Sam and Emma host Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota's 5th District, whose recent book, This Is What America Looks Like: My Journey from Refugee to Congresswoman, is out in paperback now! Representative Omar, Sam, and Emma take on a variety of issues central to the progressive cause as the Biden administration has begun to falter. They begin with key issues on immigration and refugees, as Ilhan Omar touches on the shameful continuation of Trump policies under Biden, particularly exploring the treatments of Afghan and Haitian refugees and the Biden administration's reliance on Title 42, taking on also why he has failed to stick to this campaign promise. Next, they move to the topic of student debt relief, as Congresswoman Omar dives into the mysterious missing memo that stands as the only thing preventing Biden from putting pen to paper with an executive order, and what could be behind the delay, before they jump to the topic of the reconciliation platform and how debt relief may or may not fit in. She, Emma, and Sam also dive into the discussion around reconciliation spending, why a shorter span on funding is easily okay by progressives if Sinema and Manchin will just clarify what they would like, and explore the developing role of the progressive caucus. They also touch on the legitimate ideas on both sides of the Holocaust, as per Texas's new education requirements that an "opposing" view be taught regarding the once in a century atrocity. And in the second half, Sam and Emma are joined by members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) union David McMahon (Local 52) and Fae Weichsel (Local 600) to discuss the recent developments regarding their strike authorization. Then Sam and Emma are joined by comedian Ben Gleib to discuss his recent dust up with Charlie Kirk! They run through the highlights of his very calm discussion with Charlie Kirk, including Kirk's anger and confusion regarding human anatomy, American citizenship, and what his role is within the right. Sam and Emma also touch on talking horses and John Deere, taking on the solidarity we're seeing all across the nation with this string of labor strikes, and Lindsey Graham doing some Republican-talking-point MadLibs on the wealthy Brazilian terrorists coming into our country, plus your IMs!

Some of these displaced individuals journey to other countries, such as Canada, to settle and start new lives. However, a refugee's journey doesn't end once they arrive in their new home, they must navigate a new system to access housing, healthcare, and education, while potentially facing numerous barriers along the way. In this episode of Raw Talk, we interview experts to gain a Canadian perspective on the unique health experience of refugees, and the resettlement process for refugees living in Canada. Steve Meagher discusses who refugees are and the barriers they face to accessing healthcare services in Canada.

Join Haymarket Books and Salvage for a discussion of Fortress Europe, Fortress USA: How Borders Work Contemporary capitalism relies heavily on an inter-connected working class which extends across borders. Cross-border production and supply chains, logistics networks, and retail and service firms have aligned and fused a growing number of workers into one common class, regardless of where they happen to live. While money moves without restriction, the movement of displaced migrant workers across borders is restricted, punished—often violently so. And all of this is before imperial adventures and decades of neoliberal structural adjustment policies conspire to create the dire circumstances that lead to “refugee crises.” In both the US and across Europe this context has been seized on and converted to political fodder by mainstream parties of the liberal and the reactionary varieties. While often flavored differently—from outright scapegoating of migrants to handwringing calls for ‘kinder-gentler' deportation regimes—the growth and violence of the police state dedicated to the repression of transborder populations has proceeded unabated for decades. Drawing on Justin Akers Chacón's new book "The Border Crossed Us", and Chloe Haralambous's work with Sea-Watch, this Salvage Live event will look at the differences and similarities between Fortress USA and Fortress Europe, examine how to effectively dismantle their respective border regimes, and aim to explain how borders work (and for whom). The conversation will be hosted by Annie Olaloku-Teriba and Barnaby Raine. This discussion will be part of the ongoing Salvage Live events series, hosted by Haymarket Books. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Justin Akers Chacón is an activist, labor unionist, and educator living in the San Diego-Tijuana border region. He is a Professor of Chicana/o History at San Diego City College. His most recent book is The Border Crossed Us: The Case for Opening the US-Mexico Border. He is also the author of No One is Illegal (with Mike Davis) and Radicals in the Barrio. Chloe Haralambous is a member of Sea-Watch, participating in and coordinating maritime rescue missions in the Central Mediterranean migration corridor to Europe, and the co-founder of the Mosaik Support Center for Refugees and Locals on the Greek island of Lesvos. She is also a PhD candidate in comparative literature at Columbia University. Annie Olaloku-Teriba is a writer and podcaster whose research focuses on how neoliberalism has transformed the theory and practice of ‘race.'

It would prove to be a way to face the darkness and set him on a path to become a warrior, and ultimately to find compassion, peace, and forgiveness.   Tu Lam served in the the United States Army for 23 years in the infantry, reconnaissance unit, special forces unit, combat search and rescue, combative, and special reconnaissance unit. After retirement he created Ronin Tactics, where draws on his experience and influences to train law enforcement officers and civilians how to survive.   Expert action steps Be disciplined: tie your entrepreneurship to a moral value.

Eliana Adler joins us to talk about Polish Jews who fled to the Soviet Union in 1939, and who subsequently survived the Second World War and the Holocaust in Siberia and Central Asia. Listen in as we discuss her book Survival on the Margins: Polish Jewish Refugees in the Wartime Soviet Union, and the big picture issues it raises about how we understand the Holocaust, what it means to be a survivor, and the paradoxes of history: those Jews who were deported by the Soviet Union found themselves far away from the Nazi genocide. Survival on the Margins is a phenomenal book, which tells us about those Polish Jews who fled to the east when war broke out in September 1939; after the Molotov-RIppentrop treaty re-partitioned Poland between the Soviet Union and Germany, in the chaos of war about 200,000 Jews escaped from the Nazis into the Soviet Union—where they were subsequently deported further east, in many cases to Siberia and other locations in central Asia. After the war, they were allowed to return to Poland, where they discovered the full extent of the Holocaust's destruction. In the war's aftermath, they actually made up a large portion of the total group of Holocaust survivors—but in the years since, for various reasons their story has been subsumed into the main Holocaust narratives. Eliyana Adler is an Associate professor of History and Jewish Studies at Pennsylvania State University. She is an historian of the modern Jewish experience in Eastern Europe, and her most recent book, Survival on the Margins: Polish Jewish Refugees in the Wartime Soviet Union, is the basis for our conversation today.

Just weeks ago, as we reported previously on The Real News, onlookers in the US and around the world were horrified yet again by scenes of pain, desperation, and brutality at the US-Mexico border in Del Rio, Texas. With COVID-19 and global vaccine apartheid continuing to exacerbate a public health crisis, with continuing political turmoil following the assassination of former President Jovenel Moïse in July, and after another devastating earthquake shook the battered nation in August, thousands of Haitian refugees have been forced to leave their homes in the hope of seeking asylum in the US.Instead of having their appeals for asylum heard and their situation recognized for the crisis of humanity that it is, these refugees were met by menacing US Border Patrol agents on horseback who rode them down and rounded them up in brutal fashion. Since then, the US government under President Joe Biden has deployed the Trump-era Title 42 policy to mass expel thousands of refugees back to Haiti without hearing their asylum claims, even though the Department of Homeland Security designated Haiti for Temporary Protected Status in May.While the news cycle has moved on from the immediate so-called “crisis at the border,” the nightmare for Haitians and the country of Haiti is still very much ongoing. In this interview, TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez talks with Pascal Robert about the larger political context that led to the horrifying scenes at the US-Mexico border last month, and about the deep disdain, fear, and imperialist designs that have historically shaped US policy toward Haiti and its people. Pascal Robertis an essayist and political commentator whose work covers Black politics, global affairs, and the history and politics of Haiti. He is the co-host of the podcast THIS IS REVOLUTION, a frequent contributor to the Black Agenda Report, and his writing has been featured in outlets like The Huffington Post, Alternet, and the Washington Spectator.
