- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
