Includes the final part of GLEN FORD's talk (begun in NWN #276 & 277) plus a short commentary by Ford and a song by DAVID ROVICS. This week Ford's focus is the US's current attempt (by means of AFRICOM) to control Africa's resources and trade by controlling Africa's militaries. And relatedly, Ford addresses the US government's war against civil liberties at home.
Rovics' song, "Meanwhile in Afghanistan," gives another view of military attacks overseas and attacks on the Bill of Rights at home.
Ford spoke at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, on April 6, 2013. He titled his talk, "Imperialism Hopping on Just One Leg."
A video recording of the talk is available from The Struggle (www.thestruggle.org). Many thanks to them. I have very lightly edited the audio, removing umms and other hesitations.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
