     This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands,
 Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba,
 and the Voice of Russia.
   From CHINA- 
China will begin restricting the export of rare earth minerals next year. The US is charging the Chinese government with giving excess subsidies for its renewable energy products. Iranian planes are being refused fuel at some European airports. The US military has assembled 120 people to counteract the upcoming Wikileaks publication of 400,000 Iraq war documents.

      From NETHERLANDS- 

The Netherlands new center-right government wants to ban tourists from using cannabis at Dutch coffeehouses.

    From GERMANY- 
The British government has announced the biggest spending cuts since WW2, and there are threats of mass protests like in France. Meanwhile the protests in France have become quite violent and effective, and they are still supported by the majority of French citizens.
   From CUBA- 
A Viewpoint on the presence of youth in the escalating protests taking over France- is this the beginning of a season of mass demonstration like the summer of 1968? The US government presents the deadly drone strikes in Pakistan as accurately targeted and effective- but data proves otherwise. The Obama administration will offer a $2 billion loan to Pakistan in the form of attack helicopters and other weapons- the UN has been asking the entire world to jointly send $2 billion for flood relief to Pakistan, but less than a third of that money has been raised.

    From RUSSIA- 
A commentary on the CNN story that Ossama bin Laden is alive and well in Pakistan.

Community, Solidarity, Resistance: The Conclusion of the RNC 8 Case and Some Lessons Learned

 

Community, Solidarity, Resistance: The Conclusion of the RNC 8 Case and Some Lessons Learned

From the RNC 8 and RNC 8 Defense Committee:

More than two years after the 2008 Republican National Convention, it appears that the last legal and political defense work is finally reaching a conclusion. Two years of standing together, not always in agreement, but bound by our outrage against a state which systematically destroys our supposed rights. Two years of coming to understand that we are not exceptional and that these rights do not actually exist for anyone except the richest of the rich. Two years of standing and fighting together anyway, retaining our dignity and our strength in our own separate ways.

Crossing the Threshold

Republicans are working hard for a new election landslide and they will have earned it if they receive it.  Democrats are campaigning in a lack luster fashion this election season and certainly are not as visible.  Republicans have put their brightest stars up front, with polished and widely adhered to talking points.  They’ve also managed to leash some of their more radical voices by telling them to avoid media outlets considered unbiased or not biased in their favor.  Democrats have put the one person out there with the highest profile and reputation right now for low approval ratings, who many of their base feel has let them down.

I'm worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel - let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what they're doing. I'm concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine that's handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers.

To watch the courageous Afghan freedom fighters battle modern arsenals with simple hand-held weapons is an inspiration to those who love freedom. Their courage teaches us a great lesson - that there are things in this world worth defending. 

To the Afghan people, I say on behalf of all Americans that we admire your heroism, your devotion to freedom, and your relentless struggle against your oppressors.

"
