NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK Japan
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reported on 911, pointing out that Congress passed a law allowing the families of the victims of the attack to sue Saudi Arabia (though Obama says he will veto the bill). Then the words of Barbara Lee, the only member of Congress who opposed giving the President authorization to use all force necessary against anyone deemed responsible for the attack. The war in Syria is a result of that authorization, called external interference by an international panel studying that war, with regime change and weapons profits as the goals.
From GERMANY- As of Wednesday night the US and Russia agreed that the ceasefire in Syria was holding. The head of the European Commission insists that Brexit will not sink the EU which is moving forward with plans to create a combined military force. Germany closed its embassy in Turkey to avoid attacks, while China and Russia are engaged in large scale war games in the South China Sea. Philippine President Duderte wants US forces out of the south of his country. North Korea did an underground nuclear bomb test and the US flew nuclear capable bombers near the North Korean border. There is a new NATO mission in the Mediterranean Sea, and 800,000 Catalans took to the streets to demand independence.
From CUBA-Obama extended for a year trade restrictions with Cuba. Venezuela is hosting the 17th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement, with 120 nations it is the second largest international body on the planet. The former Attorney General of Brazil says he was removed in order to sink the ongoing corruption investigation, while the current legislature is considering privatizing oil and other national resources. The ACLU and activists have launched a campaign to lobby Obama to pardon government whistleblower Edward Snowden before a new president is sworn in.
From JAPAN- The UN Security Council is considering a draft resolution barring nuclear weapon explosion testing, the US is still hanging up the non-proliferation treaty, and North Korea had a rally celebrating their fifth nuclear weapon test explosion.

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.
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)

"The great fear that I have regarding the outcome for America of these disclosures is that nothing will change. People won't be willing to take the risks necessary to stand up and fight to change things. And in the months ahead, the years ahead, it's only going to get worse. The NSA will say that because of the crisis, the dangers that we face in the world, some new and unpredicted threat, we need more authority, we need more power, and there will be nothing the people can do at that point to oppose it. And it will be turnkey tyranny."
-Edward Snowden
