From JAPAN- Japan is enacting a state secret protection bill, which has been met with outrage from many citizens and civic groups- here is a story about protests then an Insight into the bill. US VP Biden went to China and was said to tell them that the new air defense identification zone in the East China Sea was unacceptable. Greenpeace issued a study on air pollution in China and said the government is not doing enough to rectify the problem.

Latin America has made more progress in reducing hunger than any other region in the world. The US government is continuing assassinations by drone in several areas of Afghanistan.

An editor at the Guardian UK was called before Parliament to answer questions about publishing NSA secrets from Edward Snowden.

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 (PST) 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)
