Featured Guests:

  1. Paul Kawika Martin, Political Director with Peace Action, talks about the framework of the international Iran nuclear agreement announced last week, assessing the details of the accord, as well as efforts by Congressional Republicans and Israel to derail the agreement, in the face of recent public opinion polls finding a majority of Americans support a nuclear deal with Iran.
  2. William Picard, Executive Director of the Yemen Peace Project discusses the current escalating civil war in Yemen, between forces aligned with the Houthi movement and former president ‘Ali’ Abdullah Saleh on one side, and Yemen’s recently-ousted president ’Abdu Rabu Mansur Hadi, where Saudi Arabia, with U.S and other Gulf states support, has intervened with airstrikes and the threat of a ground invasion.
  3. Aquene Freechild, co-director of Public Citizen’s Democracy Is For People campaign, talks about the campaign by a coalition of advocacy groups across the country that are calling on President Obama to issue an executive order requiring federal government contractors to disclose their political spending. Dozens of rallies advocating such action were held across the country on April 2, the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s McCutcheon ruling, which greatly expanded the amount of money that can be donated to federal politicians.
  4. Peter Montgomery, a Senior Fellow at People For the American Way, discusses the recent controversy and widespread opposition to the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” bills recently passed by the Indiana and Arkansas state legislatures. He’ll examine the Republican party’s history with regard to the promotion of intolerance and discrimination against the LGBT community, as well as racial and ethnic minorities — standing in stark contrast to the direction of majority American public opinion.

Featured Guests:

  1. Patrick Woodall, Research Director & Senior Policy Advocate with the group Food & Water Watch assesses the significance of the latest leaked text from the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement, with a focus on provisions allowing multi-national corporations to challenge local public health, environmental, consumer and labor laws — and the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the TPP negotiations.
  2. Robert Parry, author, investigative journalist and founder/editor of ConsortiumNews.com, discusses his recent article, “Ukraine’s Oligarchs Turn on Each Other,” highlighting the internal conflicts and corruption in Ukraine’s “pro-western” government, as well as the personal links between Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings and the friends/relatives of U.S. officials: including Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry.
  3. George Woodliff-Stanley and Sarah Dobbs of the group Swarthmore Mountain Justice, talk about their group’s ongoing sit-in campaign on the Swarthmore campus calling for the college to divest from fossil fuel investments — and the non violent actions demanding divestment on other college and university campuses nationwide.

Things That Are Vanishing, globally, nationally and locally, worth memorializing, celebrating, rallying for and keeping in the spotlight. Things we do not want, in the words of poet Dylan Thomas, to “go gentle into that Good Night.” Guests:

  1. Judi Harvest, who divides her time between New York and Venice Italy, and whose practice involves collaborations with Bees, and with glass blowers on the island of Murano Italy. Judi will be participating in the forthcoming Biennale in a collateral exhibition, and will talk with us about beekeeping and working with master artisans in acclimate of upheaval and change.
  2. Paul Clabby, artist and curator at the John Slade Ely House in New Haven, a venerable arts exhibition venue in a historic house, which is slated to close its doors this summer. We will celebrate the life and times of the gallery, which is one of several culture institutions in the city which are currently undergoing radical change. The John Slade Ely house under Paul’s tenure has been the locus of many projects that have profoundly affected the lives and careers of area artists, community groups, clubs – notably “paint and clay” – and students.
