Shabana Basij-Rasikh: Dare to educate Afghan girls

While listening to Feminist Magazine on http://www.kpfk.org they aired the story of this extraordinary woman.

Imagine a country where girls must sneak out to go to school, with deadly consequences if they get caught learning. This was Afghanistan under the Taliban, and traces of that danger remain today. 22-year-old Shabana Basij-Rasikh runs a school for girls in Afghanistan. She celebrates the power of a family’s decision to believe in their daughters — and tells the story of one brave father who stood up to local threats.

Today’s discussion: Monsanto | GMO’s and documentary highlight “The World According to Monsanto”.

Links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US has adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. In the early 90’s, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.

Vermont has become the 1st state to require GMO labeling. Will any others follow…?

Documentary: 5 Broken Cameras

While listening to KPFK radio this morning, the Sojourner Truth show w| Margaret Prescod
http://www.kpfk.org/index.php/programs/142-sojournertruth#.U3Yf-qzn99A

The show highlighted this documentary and played excerpts which gave light to the conflict in Palestine/Israel. I went to a conference at UCLA a couple months back to hear the experiences of an activist group who visited Palestine. The violence against the people of Palestine is heart wrenching.

They are kicked out of their own homes, killed, beaten and the U.S. government is an ally with the entity inflicting these should-be crimes, Israel. There are certain roads they may and may not drive which is enforced by different colored license plates.

Nominated for an Oscar, 5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal first-hand account of life and nonviolent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village where Israel is building a security fence. Palestinian Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, shot the film and Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi co-directed. The filmmakers follow one family’s evolution over five years, witnessing a child’s growth from a newborn baby into a young boy who observes the world unfolding around him. The film is a Palestinian-Israeli-French co-production.

GOP Budget to Focus on Overhauling Social Programs

http://www.thomhartmann.com/

I listen to Thom Hartmann on http://www.kpfk.org (90.7FM Los Angeles) every week and I learn new and up to date political truth which is mind satisfying and more times then I would like, aggravating.

This country (United States) has a history of oppression of non-white people, and republicans, conservatives alongside the tea party are on a constant mission to take away voting rights, public aide and basic rights to the very people who pay taxes.

What does our government do with the taxes we pay? – Give subsidies and tax breaks to wealthy corporations… But yet, there is no money to further fund programs like Medi-Cal, public school system and let’s not even get on the homeless problem in this country.

We have money to fly drones over Israel / Pakistan to kill innocent people. There is money to do everything but do for the people. If these people, our government never sees their judgment day while walking this Earth, let’s hope there is a higher being to take care of this evil.
