This week's show features stories from China Radio International, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- The Australian government is working with farmers to reduce their carbon footprint. Environmental activists have accused Apple computer corporation of using Chinese manufacturers who are dangerously polluting the air and water.
From JAPAN- Dangerous levels of dioxin have been found in rivers and ground water in prefectures hit by the March 11th earthquake. An iron wall is to be built around the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant to prevent radioactive water from leaking into the sea. Iran says that its first nuclear power plant is up and running, and plans to build 20 more.
From GERMANY- The European Court of Justice has ruled that honey with any traces genetically modified pollen must not be sold. The EU plans to stop some computer automated stock market sales to prevent rapidly plunging share values. Turkey is extremely angry at Israel over the killing of its citizens aboard last years flotilla to Gaza by Israeli troops.
From CUBA-- Israeli warplanes have attacked a Palestinian refugee camp in Central Gaza just hours after Israeli settlers burned a mosque in the West Bank. A cuban Deputy Foreign Minister strongly criticized NATO's military intervention in Libya, and urged the West to avoid a similar scenario in Syria. Nigeria has asked Libyan rebel leaders to stop the indiscriminate killing of black Africans in that country. Thousands of Italians opposed to the government's austerity plans have taken to the streets. US military commanders want more authority to conduct covert operations in Iraq.
From RUSSIA- The US has a secret army that answers to no one but the President and Secretary of Defense. The Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC, was created in response to the attacks of 911 and carries out targeted assassinations.
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  http://radio.mediageek.net

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.
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 >
There are several other streams that work better- <  http://www.freakradio.org >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PDST)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://radio.indymedia.org/en/podcast?keys=shortwave++

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)

So what is it?
