- John J. Mearsheimer is the R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor and Co-director of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago. Prof. Mearsheimer, author of “The Tragedy of Great Power Politics,” and co-author with Stephen M. Walt of, “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy,” discusses the danger posed by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and the escalation of tensions resulting from the recent U.S. decision to pre-position dozens of tanks and other military equipment in allied nations in the Baltics and Eastern Europe.
- Adam Gaffney, M.D., research fellow in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, talks about the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in the King v. Burwell case, that rescued the Affordable Care Act — and the important work that still must be done to provide universal health care to all U.S. citizens, that would include establishing a single payer health care system, discussed in his recent article, “From Exchange to Egalité,”
- Nick Nyhart, co-founder, President and CEO of Every Voice Center, (formerly Public Campaign,) who assesses the current campaign to pressure Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that was gutted in the Shelby County v. Holder Supreme Court decision in 2013 — and how that struggle relates to the current national debate on combating racism and white supremacy that followed the massacre of 9 black church parishioners in Charleston, South Carolina.
- Gregory Williams, a recent graduate of Yale University Divinity School and social justice activist, discusses his and Dan Fischer’s arrest after participating in a May 12 protest at Temple Israel in Westport, CT, where the two had disrupted a luncheon for the group Friends of the Israel Defense Forces to read a statement by Nabila Abu Halima, a Palestinian woman who lives in the Gaza Strip, who watched as her son was murdered by IDF soldiers during Operation Cast Lead in 2008/2009.
