There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -
I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at 
  All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. 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. 
This program will be aired on Friday evening at 6:30pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < >
There are several other streams that work better- < >Freak Radio Santa Cruz  now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PST)

    "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."

--Howard Zinn


The Perfect Opportunity

In North Africa and the Middle East right now people are doing something they have not done in a very long time.  They are asking the US to back up what we have been saying about our stance regarding liberty, freedom and democracy around the globe.  This is a region where many people have pointed at us and accused us of exploiting them and their resources for our gain while giving nothing back in return or caring little for their life styles.  Now there is a blank space for America to insert a different image of ourselves and perhaps change some of the narrative.  We can inject hope by hitting the reset button.

Mondragón and Worker Cooperatives: Third Coast Workers For Cooperation

  UT professor George Cheney spoke February 16th on “Practical Lessons for a New Economy from the 55-year History of the Mondragón Cooperatives in Basque Country, Spain.” This interactive presentation will summarize Cheney’s experiences, research, and consulting in one of the largest worker-owned-and-managed systems in the world, the Mondragón Cooperative Corporation.
Founded in 1956, these worker co-ops comprise the largest firm in the Basque Country and the seventh largest private firm in Spain. Cheney will explain how the Mondragón system, known for its unique cultural and organizational features, holds important lessons for efforts in economic justice and community development, especially as many Americans search for new economic models in response to the “Great Recession.”
This event was sponsored by Third Coast Workers for Cooperation, an organization committed to the development and support of worker-owned green businesses.  For more info, contact info at
George Cheney is a Communication Studies professor at the University of Texas and has also taught at the universities of Illinois, Colorado, Montana and Utah. He has published eight books, including Values at Work: Employee Participation Meets Market Pressure at Mondragón. A specialist in the study of organizations, Cheney focuses much of his energy today on building just, democratic, and sustainable work enterprises.


Austin Tan Cerca De La Frontera Prepares for March Delegation to the Border-Spaces still available!


Announcing… Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera's March 18-20, 2011 trip to MEXICO in solidarity with the CFO or Comité Fronterizo de Obreras/os (Border Committee of Working Women and Men). Main destination: Ciudad Acuña, Mexico
In partnership with the CFO, this 3-day trip enters the communities, homes and lives of women and men who work in the maquiladoras, foreign-owned factories that produce in Mexico for export to the US. Venture inside a working-class, grassroots community moved by a vision of common good. See the impact of NAFTA and the difference between "free” and "fair trade." Workers in Ciudad Acuña are making history: with CFO support, they are defying an illegal ban on unions. By affiliating with The Mexican Miners Union, they are creating the border’s first independent union, representing workers rather than government or employers.
Unions from 26 countries on every continent staged Global Days of Action (Feb. 14-19) in support of independent Mexican unions. Attacks, reprisals and harassment escalating in the last 5 years motivated the call to action which highlighted the courageous work of The Mexican Mineworkers. The delegation will meet Mineworker activists and learn about the new international solidarity movement.
The March delegation will stop first in Del Rio on the Texas side for a visit to el Comité Cultural del Pueblo to learn about border culture and dynamics. Founded in 1980, this community center follows a mission to "enable a unified cultural awakening by making the arts accessible and affordable." The last stop on Sunday in Piedras Negras visits the Dignity & Justice Maquiladora, a woman-run, fair trade business model associated with the CFO.
Passport required. Fee: $225 includes transportation from Austin, translation, food and lodging, and orientation information. Orienta-tion meeting: March 17. For more info and a registration form, please email JRosenberg at atcf dot org or call Judith at 512 494-8377.
Communicate interest/questions immediately. A $100 deposit will reserve a space. Some scholarship assistance available.
