Vernellia Randall, Emeritus professor of law at the University of Dayton, Ohio, examines the police shooting death of Michael Brown, public protest in Ferguson, Missouri and elsewhere around the country — and the pattern of police abuse and violence, that has prompted many activists to demand urgent national action to address this decades long crisis.
  2. Investigative journalist Dahr Jamail, who has reported on events in Iraq and across the Middle East, discusses the expanding U.S. war in Iraq since President Obama’s August 7th authorization for U.S. airstrikes targeting ISIS forces in Northern Iraq, and the conflicting and confused set of alliances in a region engulfed by violence and political turmoil.
  3. David Kotz, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst discusses the increasingly tense situation in Ukraine. Accusations by the U.S. and NATO that Russian artillery is firing on Ukraine forces — and a recent 145-truck Russian humanitarian convoy that crossed into Ukraine without Kiev’s authorization has raised concern about the potential for a Russian-Ukraine war.
  4. John Humphries, steering committee member of the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs, talks about the local organizing being done in advance of the People’s Climate March that will be held in New York City on September 21, which is expected to be the largest climate change protest action in U.S., if not world history.
