Food Not Bombs was founded in 1980 to provide direct aid to people while educating about the perversion of spending so much on the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) while tens of millions of people do not have the basic necessities. It has turned into a global movement to build food sovereignty and organize systems outside the establishment. Clearing the FOG speaks with Keith McHenry, the co-founder of Food Not Bombs, about the criminalization of homelessness, their recent legal victory in Florida and why we must be concerned about increasing homelessness in the United States and the overall direction the country is going. McHenry speaks about his family ties to the founding of the military and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as well as the violence he and others have experienced because of their activism.

President Trump issued an Executive Order on November 27, 2018 that said that the response to the protests that began on April 18, 2018 "and the Ortega regime's systematic dismantling and undermining of democratic institutions and the rule of law, its use of indiscriminate violence and repressive tactics against civilians, as well as its corruption leading to the destabilization of Nicaragua's economy constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States." Sec. 4: Restrictions on International Financial Institutions Relating to Nicaragua Directs the United States Executive Director at the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, and the International Monetary Fund to "increase scrutiny of any loan or financial or technical assistance provided for a project in Nicaragua" and "to ensure" that the loan or assistance is administered through an entity with full independence from the Government of Nicaragua.

Audio Sources Kawsachun News - Nicaragua 2021 Election Observer Press Conference November 10, 2021 Moderator: I present Paul Pumphrey from Friends of the Congo. Paul Pumphrey: Here in Nicaragua, I saw a free and fair election. I talked to many people who were not a part of the Sandinistas party. And yet they themselves said they were willing to accept whatever result happened in the election. Moderator: Next we have Craig Pasta Jardula who is a journalist based in the United States. Craig Pasta Jardula: Mainly, I want to talk about the process, meaning the chain of custody, because that's something that we really saw that was great here in Nicaragua, it made this election a home run. The chain of custody is very strong here, including the fact that in Nicaragua, we have something that is awesome that a lot of countries need to adopt, which is where the vote is cast, it is counted, that ensures a strong chain of custody. Moderator: Next is Rick Cohn from Friends of Latin America. 13:05 Rick Cohn: I want to speak just a little bit though a group of 11 of us went to Bilwi on the Caribbean coast. And in the United States, one of the things they'll use to say this election is fake, is that a high percentage of people voted, and a high percentage of people voted for the FSLN. And that can't happen, because American politicians that would never happen. Well, so I want to say something about why the voters told us they were voting. They told us that basically, they had two Category Four and Category Five hurricanes last year, and the government came and saved their lives, saved many, many lives. And, you know, people have trust in that government. And then the government came in and made sure the electric was up. In Puerto Rico from a year earlier, electric still isn't isn't working, because they, you know, are making money selling electric, but it still doesn't work. They told us they had new roofs put on almost immediately they were delivered. They told us that the schools were rebuilt. All of the schools were in good condition. Oh, the schools and some of them have new buildings. So we had a situation where they were very happy with the performance of the government. And that is why -- oh, they also told us they had one kilometer of road before the FSLN came into power from the neoliberal period, now they have 500 kilometers. And with 70 more kilometers, they'll be able to drive from all the way to Managua, which they've never been able to do in history. So they told us these things. And the FSLN party received the highest percentage of votes, but that's not strange, because they really support the government. They received 86.7% of the vote. You know, there's no way that's made up - it's not fake. It's where they're at. It is certainly the biggest deficiency in democracy in Nicaragua is the interference that there is so much interference from the US government and the media, and the censorship and the lies that they tell. That's the interference that's occurring in this election. 33:52 Rick Cohn: Corporate media like Facebook, well, all of the corporate media including Facebook and Twitter, but social media, are actually just part of the US system and they're contracted to provide information back and forth, they're actually an aspect of the government and they close 1000s of people's accounts, who are people, and I met some of them, they're actual people, and they close their accounts. And they weren't, you know, anyone who was saying anything other than the fact that they may have been supporting the Nicaraguan people or opposed to the the sanctions on Nicaragua. AN INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE TO ORTEGA'S DESTRUCTION OF DEMOCRACY IN NICARAGUA September 21, 2021 House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration and International Economic Policy *Hearing not on C-SPAN Witnesses: Emily Mendrala Deputy Assistant Secretary of State at the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs Laure Chinchilla Former President of Costa Rica Co-Chair at The Inter-American Dialogue Ryan Berg, PhD Senior Fellow in the Americas Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Oct. 2018 - Apr. 2021: Research Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute Apr. 2018 - Oct. 2018: Research Consultant at The World Bank July 2014 - Oct 2014: US State Department negotiator at the Organization of American States (OAS) 2009: Intern for Paul Ryan Berta Valle Wife of Felix Maradiaga Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): The regime has rounded up nearly every potential challenger to Ortega and has not even tried to hide these arrests and forced disappearances under the veneer of legality. 05:42 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): Having written the NICA Act with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), I am frustrated that the International Monetary Fund recently provided $350 million to the regime. The IMF should not take Ortega's us word for it that these funds will be used to address the COVID pandemic. 06:53 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): We should also begin preparing a number of severe diplomatic consequences, assuming Nicaragua's election in November becomes a coronation for Ortega. Nicaragua should be suspended under the International Democratic Charter on November 8, and its participation under the Central America Free Trade Agreement should be reconsidered. 10:39 Rep. Mark Green (R-TN): On November 7 a political farce will be held, claiming to resemble elections. No one should be fooled about the outcome -- any hope of unseating the socialist dictatorship is sitting inside of Ortega's prisons. 13:56 *Emily Mendrala: As you are well aware, the Ortega-Murillo government has carried out a ruthless crackdown over the past several months, canceling the registration of opposition parties, incarcerating journalists, opposition leaders, potential presidential candidates, students, private sector leaders and others who defend free and fair elections, attacking the free press, closing long standing NGOs that provide humanitarian and medical assistance to Nicaraguans in need. 15:06 Emily Mendrala: In the face of sham elections in Nicaragua, we and our international partners must continue to denounce and push back against the Ortega-Murillo government's anti-democratic rule as well as its use of Russian-inspired laws to carry out repression. 17:56 Emily Mendrala: Through USAID we continue to support Nicaraguan civil society, independent media and human rights defenders. Our continued support assures Nicaraguans that the outside world has not forgotten them. 19:06 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): Are we using our voice? Is the administration using its voice and vote with international financial institution to oppose loans and other financial assistance to Ortega? Because I have to tell you, it's very upsetting to me that we do all this work here. We asked the administration to put sanctions on different people. And yet the IMF, which we probably contribute the largest amount of money, or if not, one of the largest amounts of money, they seem to just ignore what's going on in Nicaragua. And it has to -- I intend to write a letter to the IMF. And hopefully we'll have them before this committee, because this is not acceptable. 20:22 Emily Mendrala: We are using our voice and our vote and every opportunity in front of multilateral institutions to oppose lending to the Ortega-Murillo government. We will continue to use our voice, vote and influence to advocate against lending from international financial institutions to the Ortega-Murillo government and we will also continue to collaborate with international partners where appropriate: EU, Canada and others to do the same. 30:43 Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX): The upcoming November 7 elections will be neither free nor fair 1:04:30 Berta Valle: Even though Félix [Maradiaga] has dedicated his life to serving our country, the regime has charged him and others with a conspiracy to undermine national integrity. The government is alleging that Félix and others were part of a global conspiracy to use foreign resources, including from the US Agency for International Development, the International Republican Institute and the National Endowment for Democracy to harm the interests of the nation. 1:16:33 Ryan Berg: As well as November 7, I think we need to declare Nicaragua's elections illegitimate under current conditions. 1:27:16 Ryan Berg: Thank you, Congressman Green, for the question. Yes, the two countries that I would point out as extra-hemispheric actors who have have come into the hemisphere to shore up the Ortega regime are Russia and Iran. Russia, we've seen with a significant presence in Nicaragua for a while. Its increased its presence in past years, to an extent that I think should be very alarming for the US government. Not only does it have a number of port agreements with Nicaragua, and access to the Caribbean, where it can engage in anti access and area denial capabilities, potentially. But also in cyberspace. We saw recently the Russians and Nicaraguans sign a major agreement in the cyberspace, particularly to help the regime not only increase its domestic security apparatus, but to spy potentially on the opposition on our own citizens, and indeed, potentially on on other governments in Central America, depending upon the strength of the equipment transfers that we'll see in future. So they have a whole number or whole range of capabilities that they are developing within Nicaragua, that there are signals intelligence stations that are actually quite close to the US Embassy in Managua. And so that's that's Russia, Russia has an interest in shoring up this regime on the cheap. And I think Iran has approached the regime in a number of ways, most specifically, in offering partnerships to circumvent US sanctions architecture, in which it excels, because of the sanctions architecture that it has been under for so long. And we haven't seen as deep I would say, as a presence of the Iranians in Nicaragua, but it's it's there and it's also concerning. I think, in general, Congressman, part of the Ortega regime's plan for survival is to sort of recreate a situation of rivalry and enmity in Central America again, and lend a platform for major geopolitical competitors to the United States to increase their capabilities on the US doorstep and I think that's a significant aspect of this political, economic and social crisis here. 1:35:50 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): If the Ortega regime moves ahead was stealing this November's elections the international community must come together to impose a very steep price. John Bolton: Miami Dade College's National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower November 1, 2018 John Bolton: The "Troika of Tyranny" in this hemisphere -- Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua -- has finally met its match. John Bolton: Today in this hemisphere we are also confronted once again, with the destructive forces of oppression, socialism and totalitarianism. In Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, we see the perils of poisonous ideologies left unchecked. Nicaraguan President Speech at the United Nations General Assembly September 25, 2007 16:50 President Daniel Ortega: The General Assembly is simply a reflection of this world where a capitalist and imperialist minority is imposing global capitalism to impoverish the world continue to enslave us all and promote apartheid against Latin American immigrants and against African immigrants in Europe. This global capitalism is one beast and it has tentacles everywhere. 25:30 President Daniel Ortega: They have to understand once and for all, that just as they have managed to profit from privatizations that have given rise to these huge multi-nationals that then set up in developing countries, they say that they are helping us. No business person provides assistance, they simply go to earn as much money as they can, they don't go to invest. Developing countries are considered to be insecure countries, and we are simply being ransacked. If we compare the volume of riches that they're extracting from our countries -- the capitalists in developed countries I'm talking about -- through their major companies, the globalized multinationals. If we can compare that wealth with what the Latin American immigrants send back to their families from the U.S. or the Asian and African families in Europe send back to their families, it is a miserable amount compared to the volume of wealth that is extracted on a daily basis by these forms of institutionalized oppression. 28:30 President Daniel Ortega: These companies are simply using cheap labor. They are benefiting from clauses in free trade agreements. I've got us free trade, why not? Free trade for societies and nations. But clearly in that system, it's the law of the jungle the strongest will impose themselves on the rest. What well the world needs is fair trade. What the world demands is really a genuine change in the capitalist, globalized, imperialist economies, that is where we need to have a change. They have to change this concept that they have of a free market. They have to change the slant of these free trade agreements. Nicaraguan Presidential Address to Congress April 16, 1991 20:00 President Violetta Chamorro: My government is committed to radically reducing government intervention in the economy and the enormous bureaucratic apparatus that we have inherited. Our Congress approved a law that authorizes private banks to operate and encourages foreign investments and is studying the privatization law in order to convert government to businesses. We are rapidly advancing towards the establishment of a social market economy. Restrictions on prices and salaries must be lifted. Likewise, we have initiated a serious economic stabilization program accompanied by the corresponding tax reforms in order to discipline and improve and decrease public spending to encourage domestic production and to stimulate private domestic and foreign investment.

Formel 1 in Saudi-Arabien: eine kritische Auseinandersetzung

Seitdem Liberty Media bekanntgegeben hat, dass sie mit der Formel 1 ein Rennen in Saudi-Arabien veranstalten wollen, ist gerade bei unserem Moderator Kevin Scheuren ein großer innerlicher Konflikt ausgebrochen. Einerseits ist es ein spannender neuer Ort für den Sport, den wir so lieben. Auf der anderen Seite ist Saudi-Arabien durch die politischen Begebenheiten ein sehr kritisch zu betrachtender Staat, der auf Demokratie, freie Wahlen, Meinungsfreiheit und freies gesellschaftliches Leben keinen großen Wert legt. Sehr lange haben wir überlegt, wie wir über die Premiere der Formel 1 in Saudi-Arabien berichten wollen. Es wäre unserer Meinung nach falsch, wenn wir einfach nur über den Sport reden und so tun, als ob es den anderen Aspekt nicht gibt. Deshalb haben wir es aufgeteilt. In der heutigen Episode wird es nicht um den Sport an sich gehen, aber doch um den Sport und die Kraft, die von ihm ausgeht. In dieser Folge werden wir einen Exkurs in die Strukturen Saudi-Arabiens machen, über Menschenrechte, Konflikte, Probleme, aber auch Chancen sprechen. Wir begrüßen euch herzlich zu einer kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit Saudi-Arabien! MBS - die große Unbekannte? Um diesem Thema den verdienten Rahmen zu geben, hat sich Kevin zwei echte Experten eingeladen. Ronny Blaschke, Journalist und Buchautor (hier direkt sein Buch "Machtspieler - Fußball in Propaganda, Krieg und Revolution" kaufen), ist seit Jahren journalistisch in der Golfregion aktiv. Er schreibt über die verschiedenen Machthaber und ihre Einflüsse, deckt Fälle des Sportswashing auf und hat einen kritischen Blick auf eine Region, die als Krisenregion zu verstehen ist. Ebenfalls zu hören ist der Islamwissenschaftler und politische Analyst Sebastian Sons (hier direkt sein Buch "Auf Sand gebaut: Saudi-Arabien - Ein problematischer Verbündeter" kaufen) vom Center for Applied Research in Partnership with the Orient, der bereits mehrere Male in Saudi-Arabien war, Land und Leute kennengelernt hat und einen wissenschaftlichen Fokus auf die Entwicklung des Landes und der Familie rund um Kronprinz Mohammed bin Salman legt. Generell ist die Rolle von MBS eine interessante. Einerseits ordnet er die Ermordung des regimekritischen Journalisten Jamal Khasoggi an, auf der anderen Seite holt er Fußballspiele, Tennisturnier, Wrestling-Events und eben ein Formel 1-Rennen ins Land, um sich der westlichen Welt zu öffnen. Wie passt das alles zusammen in seinem Land, das zerrüttet ist und durchtrieben von gesellschaftlicher Unterdrückung und Armut, Angst und Repression, Hoffnung und Wünschen? Der Sport als Propaganda-Werkzeug und Hoffnungsstifter Man kann davon ausgehen, dass ein Formel 1-Rennen seitens der Königsfamilie mit seiner Strahlkraft, dem Glanz und Glamour für die eigenen Zwecke genutzt werden wird. Für ein paar Tage rücken die Fragen nach Menschenrechte, Rechte von Frauen im öffentlichen Leben, Diversität und Co. in den Hintergrund. Aber in der Kritik am Regime haben auch wir häufig den Effekt solcher Events auf die Menschen vergessen zu beleuchten. In den Gesprächen mit Ronny Blaschke und Sebastian Sons ist genau das passiert und sie werfen einen Blickwinkel auf, der vielleicht zu lange nicht berücksichtigt wurde. Haben sich die Menschen vor Ort diese Sportevents nicht auch verdient? Wir alle erhoffen uns von den Fahrern und der Formel 1-Organisation ein Zeichen. Sei es der Helm von Lewis Hamilton, ein Shirt von Sebastian Vettel oder auch das reine Benennnen der Probleme im Land. Aber wir dürfen nicht erwarten, dass der Sport die Strukturen auf links dreht, das kann er auch gar nicht. Aber man kann zurecht Hoffnung in die Zukunft legen, dass die Formel 1 mit ihrer Strahlkraft im Kleinen für einen positiven Wandel sorgt und mit den Menschen im Land in Kontakt tritt. Aktionen an Schulen, in den armen Gebieten und der Austausch mit denen, die unterdrückt werden und hoffen, dass sich was ändert - das kann man erwarten und das sollte es auch geben! Die Rolle des Sportjournalismus an diesem Wochenende Keine Frage: dieser Podcast wird die Welt nicht verändern. Aber wir hoffen, dass möglichst viele Kolleg*innen aus dem Sportjournalismus diese Ausgabe hören und während ihrer Zeit vor Ort die Fragen stellen, beobachten, mahnen und den Finger in die Wunden legen. Der Sportjournalismus darf sich nicht dahinter verstecken, dass Sport und Politik nicht vermischt werden sollten. Sport und Politik gehören seit Anbeginn der Zeit zusammen und so sollte es auch von den Journalist*innen gelebt werden. Keine Angst vor dem Verlust von Zugängen haben, kein Ignorieren und kein Wegschauen, auch nicht im Sportjournalismus - das ist unser Wunsch! Diese Ausgabe ist keine klassische Rennvorschau. Diese Ausgabe soll informieren, aufklären und neue Sichtweisen präsentieren, aus denen wir alle lernen können. Wir tun das auch, hinterfragen Vorurteile und ändern diese auch. Ja, dieses Rennwochenende ist eins, das mit Blutgeld bezahlt wurde und dem Sportswashing dient. Aber dieses Rennwochenende ist auch eine Chance. Eine Chance dafür, dass die Formel 1 den Stein ins Rollen bringt und den Menschen im Land, die es nötig haben, Hoffnung spendet. Nächste Woche werden wir über das Sportliche sprechen, werden Stimmen vom Veranstalter haben und mehr, aber einstweilen wünschen wir euch viel Spaß mit der heutigen Ausgabe. Schreibt uns gerne, was ihr von diesem Podcast heute haltet! Euer Feedback ist uns wichtig Schickt uns gerne für die nächsten Sendungen eure WhatsApp-Sprachnachricht an folgende Nummer: +49 331 298 50 28 GANZ WICHTIG: bitte sendet an diese Nummer NUR SPRACHNACHRICHTEN ein und beginnt eure Sprachnachricht mit den Worten STARTING GRID und eurem Namen, damit das zugeordnet werden kann!

Since the mass internment of Uyghurs and other indigenous groups in China was first reported in 2017, there is now a rich body of literature documenting recent human rights abuses in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. However, there is little knowledge of the actual perpetrators inside China's vast and opaque party-state system. A report published by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) maps and analyses the governance mechanisms employed by the Chinese party-state in Xinjiang. While the international debate continues as to whether the recent events in Xinjiang constitute genocide, this report gathers the relevant evidence before it could be covered up, and makes it publicly available. Guests: Professor James Leibold (Head of the Department of Politics, Media and Philosophy, La Trobe University) Daria Impiombato (Researcher at ASPI's International Cyber Policy Centre) Recorded on 24 November, 2021.

Dr. Philip Brenner, Professor Emeritus at the American University School of International Service, joins us to talk about the anti-government protests organized for today in Cuba and the role of the U.S. in these protests. We talk about the composition of these protests that seemingly have a different focus than the ones in July this year, where people had legitimate grievances over the economic situation of the country and food scarcity, how the protests planned for today have a more political character, and the role of the National Endowment for Democracy in weaponizing grievances towards regime change without any concern for actual democracy.Josh Gomez, producer for By Any Means Necessary on Radio Sputnik, joins us to discuss the announcement that Beto O'Rourke will run for governor of Texas in the next election, what ignited this campaign, how would he fare against opponents, and how this will likely be another failed attempt by centrist Democrats to make inroads in the Lone Star State. Jeff Pearce, journalist, historian, and author of "Prevail: The Inspiring Story of Ethiopia's Victory over Mussolini's Invasion: 1935-1941," joins us to discuss the checkered record of U.N. involvement in Ethiopia, where it seems it has actually taken sides by promoting a clear pro-TPLF narrative, making allegations against the government and abandoning its purported role as an honest broker in this conflict. We also talk about Secretary Blinken's visit to African countries, where the Ethiopia conflict will be discussed and whether we will see a change in U.S. policy in the region.Eugene Puryear, journalist, author, activist, politician, host at Breakthrough News, and author of "Shackled and Chained: Mass Incarceration in Capitalist America,” talks to us about a report that the U.S. killed scores of civilians in an airstrike in Syria during its campaign against Daesh, and whether will see an actual war crimes investigation into this. We also talk about the role of U.S. media in promoting a one-sided view of the Ethiopia conflict where opposing views are silenced, and the too-little-too-late retractions after promoting falsehoods from the Steele dossier.

First up, John spoke with author and journalist Dmitry Okrest about the state of anarchist and antifascist movements in Russia, the politics of Putin's United Russia party, nazis and the far right in Russia and successes of the Communist Party in electoral politics. Then, Moscow Anarchist Black Cross member-in-exile, Antii Rautiainen, adds some more detail on repression in Russia, including the hunger strike of Network Case prisoner, Victor Filinkov, calls for solidarity from mathematician Azat Miftakhov and others.

Malik was then incarcerated in Texas and became involved in organizing with the New Afrikan Black Panther Party and participated in the 2016 nationwide prison strikes, gaining notoriety. Malik came to play a prominent role in the prison movement and was in 2020 released to a halfway house in San Francisco after a surprising parole from Texas and brief stint in Federal prison. Malik helped to run the SF Bay View upon release but has since left. I think a lot of facts on this still need clarification, but some things just don't add up with Malik's situation. Check out the piece by editor Nube Brown with an addendum by former editor Mary Ratcliff at SFBayView.Com and likely in the print edition of the paper. . ... . ..

On March 21st, 2021, thousands entered the streets of Bristol in the UK to vent their anger at deaths in police custody, police violence on the streets, as well as a slate of repressive laws including the SpyCops Bill, increasing impunity for government officials breaking their own laws, as well as the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, or simply The Bill, targeting Roma people, Travelers, lengthens youth prison sentences and criminalizing dissent and protest amidst some of the harshest Covid-19 lockdowns the UK had seen. What became known as the Kill The Bill riot led to running fights with police, burnt cop cars, a dizzying disinformation campaign by police centering themselves as victims, and over 80 people arrested to date, with more being detained and some facing years in prison. From Monday the 25th & Wednesday the 27th of October 2021, defendant Ryan Roberts will be facing trial and is calling for international solidarity. For the hour, Tom and Nicole of Bristol Anarchist Black Cross talk about the #KillTheBill, police violence in the UK, the radical scene in Bristol, anti-repression work of Bristol ABC & Bristol Defendant Solidarity, the legacy of former Bristol resident Anna Campbell, the cases of the Colston 4 as well as that of Toby Shone, prison expansion in the UK and more. To learn more about their work and how to support and write to Ryan Roberts and other #KillTheBill defendants, visit BristolABC.Wordpress.Com, and to you can search that hashtag on social media for a demo in your area to join in on or to advertise your solidarity action! If you happen to be in Manchester, there's a demo on the 27th at 5pm at the Crown Court. And check the ongoing fundraiser for the defendants at GoFundMe! Check our show notes for more links, including our conversation with Dónal O'Driscoll from November of 2020 about the SpyCops case. There's also a new podcast out called SpyCops Info that includes folks who had been part of groups infiltrated by undercover pigs in the UK in past decades talking about individual cops and the ongoing inquiry that's worth giving a listen to: https://tfsr.wtf/spycops Also, check out this audio from Radio AvA, (a podcast by and for sex workers) with their coverage of the demonstration after the rape and killing of Sarah Everard by on-duty London Metropolitan pig Wayne Couzens: https://www.radioava.org/episodes/avashowmarch2021part1. We found that audio, shared by our comrades at Dissident Island Radio. We're releasing this interview a bit early so as to get word out about Ryan Roberts' trial, so it'll be a little longer of a wait between episodes. Annoucements New Eric King Solidarity Poster There is a really cool poster available in solidarity with anarchist and antifascist prisoner, Eric King, who is facing trial in a Denver court on a frameup right now. The poster was produced by Radix Media and here's what they had to say: To support Eric King, we are releasing a limited edition of 35 posters carrying one of his revolutionary poems. All profits generated from the sale of the broadside will be sent to Eric's support fund. The print is approximately 12.5″ x 20″ and was letterpress printed in multiple passes on our vintage Vandercook proofing press. You can find the poster at https://radixmedia.org/product/eric-king-support-letterpress-broadside/ Sean Swain Phone-Zap Sean Swain is in danger of being out-of-state transferred again, to who knows where. His support crew are asking that folks calls to Glen Elder, who is understood to be in charge of interstate transfers from Ohio Prisons, to express concern about Sean's safety, access to his legal counsel as well as family and support network in Ohio, and to question the legality of sending Sean out of state without the legally required hearing with Sean attending, which they skipped when he was sent to Virginia in 2019.

Die Hoffnung war gross. Nach Jahrzehnten der Militärdiktatur begann sich Myanmar vor zehn Jahren zu öffnen. Friedens-Nobelpreisträgerin Aung San Suu Kyi gewann die Wahlen und die Wirtschaft fing an zu wachsen. Jetzt aber hat sich das Militär zurück an die Macht geputscht und Gewalt macht sich breit. Am 1. Februar 2021 änderte sich alles auf einen Schlag. Das burmesische Militär übernahm wieder die Macht, stellte Aung San Suu Kyi und andere Politiker unter Hausarrest und deckte sie mit Prozessen ein. Festnahme folgte auf Festnahme. Die Bevölkerung fing sofort an, sich zu wehren. Die Protestkundgebungen wuchsen zu einer grossen Volksbewegung an. Die Leute waren voller Optimismus, dass es ihnen mit den friedlichen Massenprotesten gelingen würde, das Militär zur Umkehr zu zwingen. Die vom Militär entmachteten Politikerinnen und Politiker gründeten eine Untergrundregierung und riefen zum Streik und zu zivilem Ungehorsam auf. Doch das Militär zog die Schraube der Repression immer mehr an. Bald fielen die ersten Schüsse auf Demonstranten, die friedlichen Proteste versiegten. Hunderte Menschen wurden getötet, Tausende inhaftiert. Politiker, Aktivistinnen und Journalisten sind auch im Untergrund nicht mehr sicher. Viele sind in die Gebiete geflüchtet, die von Rebellenverbänden unterdrückter Minderheitsvölker kontrolliert werden. Von dort aus versuchen sie, alle Widerstands-Bewegungen zu bündeln und den bewaffneten Aufstand im ganzen Land zu organisieren. Aber das Militär ist ein starker Feind. In der Sendung kommen Politiker, Aktivistinnen und Journalisten aus Myanmar zu Wort. Die einen im Exil im benachbarten Thailand und die anderen via Internet aus ihren Verstecken im Land selbst. Sie erzählen, wie sie die Zeit seit dem Militärputsch erlebt haben und wo sie ihr Land jetzt sehen.

Ein Film-Team von RSI reist nur wenige Wochen vor der Machtübernahme der Taliban nach Afghanistan. Mit der Idee, die Stimmung in Kabul einzufangen, 20 Jahre nach 9/11. Dann überstürzen sich die Ereignisse. Nach 20 Jahren langsamer Modernisierung und einigen Fortschritten in den Institutionen kehrt in Afghanistan die Angst zurück. Die Angst vor den dunkelsten Zeiten, geprägt von Repression und Gewalt. Die Strategie der Taliban zielt darauf ab, ein Gefühl der Unsicherheit zu erzeugen, das Vertrauen in die Behörden zu untergraben und somit den eigenen Aufstieg zu begünstigen. Was wird nun aus den Errungenschaften, die sich die Frauen in den letzten 20 Jahren erkämpft haben? Welche Zukunft erwartet die Kinder? Was bedeutet es für die Journalistinnen und Journalisten, die die Pressefreiheit kennenlernten? Auf diese Fragen suchen die RSI-Journalisten Philippe Blanc und Roberto Antonini Antworten und stossen dabei auf Geschichten des Widerstands: Da ist Anisa, Journalistin des unabhängigen Fernsehsenders Tolo News. Sie übt ihren Beruf unter ständiger Lebensgefahr aus. Oder Habiba – das 12-jährige Mädchen hat das Massaker überlebt, bei dem 85 Mitschülerinnen und Mitschüler starben.
