This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From GERMANY- For the past month there have been protests in Mexico over the outcome of the Presidential election- here is an interview with a protestor who is a university professor. Two pieces about the punk band Pussy Riot who are facing 3 years in prison for a flash mob protest in Russia. The Egyptian President called for resignations after a deadly ambush where 16 soldiers were killed.
From RUSSIA- An update on the fate of Julian Assange, who is seeking refuge in Ecuador, to avoid possible extradition to the US where many think he will be charged with violation of the espionage act.
From CUBA- The former Syrian Prime Minister who dramatically resigned this week was reportedly working for the opposition forces all along. With a green light from the White House, US citizens are being allowed to donate money to purchase weapons for the Syrian opposition. The US mercenary firm formerly known as Blackwater agreed to pay fines for illegally smuggling weapons worldwide.
From JAPAN- An Insight on the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima- 50,000 people attended a ceremony calling for world peace and the abolition of all nuclear weapons- many also called for the end of nuclear power in Japan. One of the attendees at Hiroshima was the grandson of Harry Truman who had authorized the atomic bombs- the grandson campaigns for the end of all nuclear weapons. A Japanese survey team met with US NGOs in Oregon to develop strategies to deal with the Fukushima debris reaching the entire US west coast. Fukushima prefecture will soon begin checking for radiation in the rice exported from the region. Interpol has put out a Red Notice for the arrest of Paul Watson, head of the marine wildlife conservation group Sea Shepherd.

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 >

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)

"We're just a conceited naked ape, but in our minds we're some "divine legend" and we see ourselves as some sort of god, seeing we can decide what will live and what will die, what will be saved and what will be destroyed, but honestly we're just a bunch of primates out of control."
--Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd
