"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem."

     This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, the Voice of Russia, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Spanish National Radio.
    From JAPAN- There was a 29 hour power outage at the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant, preventing the cooling of melted down fuel rods. Two-thirds of people who filed compensation claims relating to the Fukushima disaster have never received any financial assistance. France is planning to restart shipments of spent plutonium to Japan.
    From CHINA- Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirate is investing large in solar power and for good reasons. On Tuesday, Syria's opposition coalition has elected Syrian born Ghassan Hitto, as an interim Prime Minister- he is a naturalized American citizen and IT executive living in Dallas Texas. On the same day Syria claims rebels fired a chemical weapon on northern Aleppo. 
    From RUSSIA- Russia hopes the the investigation of the chemical weapon in Syria will be made by an independent team. More on the controversy of the rebels later claiming that the chemical weapon was fired by government forces. In Afghanistan opium and heroin production has increased for the third consecutive year according to the UN.
     From SPAIN- In Guatemala the trial began for former dictator Rios Montt, charged with crimes against humanity in his own country. Lawmakers in Cyprus overwhelmingly rejected an EU/IMF demand that a one time 10 percent tax be levied against all bank savings accounts in their country. The European Court of Justice ruled that Spanish mortgages violate consumer rights, and the Spanish government is changing the rules on foreclosure and interest rates. Meanwhile unemployment continues to rise as does the gap between the wealthy and the poor.
     From GERMANY- A later update on the situation in Cyprus, where the banks will remain closed until next Tuesday. As the economy in Europe gets worse, the Red Cross reports that the amount of food assistance has risen to the highest levels since 1945. Final approval has been given to limit bonuses given to bankers in Europe.

If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer. 
NEW TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < http://www.kzyx.org >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)

Russia warned that supplying weapons would violate international law. Israeli President Perez urged the Arab League to intervene in Syria.
