"We began in 1948 with a UN resolution to solve the problem in Kashmir, and yet it is still here with us." Lord Nazir Ahmed, a member of the House of Lords in Britain, explains.

Workers take the fall for Lac-Mégantic. Mick Lowe - The Raids.
Phil Taylor's co-host and former rail worker Phil Conlon explains the latest in the Lac-Mégantic disaster investigation. [10:20] It turns out that ordinary rail workers are doing the perp walk. The oligarch who runs the broken system? Still collecting profit.
Phil interviews Mick Lowe, author of "The Raids," a novel which takes place in Sudbury, Ontario, during the Red Scare of the 1950s. It details union raiding at a bitter and violent period of time in which workers fought each other instead of the boss.

What is American power going to do to save these children? We've heard this question before. It should raise caution flags. Black Agenda Report executive editor Glen Ford discusses this latest white man's burden. He critiques Margaret Kimberley's article on Black Agenda Report, "Freedom Rider: How Not To Bring Back Our Girls." He goes on to discuss Paul Kagame's ongoing aggression in Congo and abroad, and the nature of AFRICOM's expansion relative to China's growing trade presence in Africa.
Glen Ford gives a summary of what AFRICOM today really is. He explains that the US is not establishing its own military bases but is blending in with the military of African countries. The objective is to have the African military bases function as US military bases without actually BEING US military bases.
