Featured Guests:

  1. Naomi Dan, Media Fellow with the group Jewish Voice for Peace talks about the protests her group has organized across the country in response to the Israeli attack on Gaza, and efforts to change U.S. policy to favor lifting the economic blockade of Gaza — and end Israel’s 47-year illegal occupation and settlement of Palestinian land.
  2. Phyllis Bennis, Director of the Institute for Policy Studies’ New Internationalism Project discusses President Obama’s authorization for airstrikes in Iraq, and alternative policies she’s written about to address the crisis of the radical Sunni group ISIS takeover of large areas of northern Iraq and Syria.
  3. Rebecca Wilkins, Senior Counsel for Federal Tax Policy with Citizens for Tax Justice discusses her group’s support for fixing tax code loopholes and passing new legislation to discourage corporate tax inversions, where American companies reincorporate as a foreign-based enterprise in order to avoid paying U.S. taxes.
  4. Mike DeRosa, Co-Chair of the Connecticut Green Party and a candidate for Secretary of State, talks about his race and other CT Green candidates running for federal and state offices in this November’s election — as well as the issues they’ll be campaigning on that include proposals to institute public banking and benefit corporations in the state.
