Julia shows that because of the pervasiveness of the surveillance system we live in today, we are in danger of becoming a society that self-censors itself instead of demanding our rights.
Julia Angwin is an investigative journalist for ProPublica. Julia was previously a staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal and was part of the Journal team that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for their coverage of corporate corruption.

In the face of soaring productivity over the last several decades, today’s average American workers earn about the same as they did in 1970 when adjusted for inflation. So what happens to sustainability in the face of this trend?
Our guest this week on Sea Change Radio is David Rolf, president of the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU 775. Rolf and host Alex Wise talk about the interconnections between economic and environmental health and ponder how a movement to improve wages and work conditions can also support efforts to protect the earth.

The purpose is the same as last year's WMD hoax: to clear a path for U.S. entry into Syria.
Zafar Bangash explains how the U.S., Turkey, and Gulf monarchs have nurtured ISIS from the very beginning as their contra force against Syria.

Richmond traces Garvey's influence and visits in Canada.
Richmond describes Garvey's 22 lessons for new black leadership after his death, but claims that Garvey's most significant contribution was his oratory skills to deliver his message. Garvey founded Negro World, the most read newspaper around the world, and ran The Daily newspaper for three years.
Malcolm X's father distributed Garvey's newspapers, and Malcolm's mother educated her children with them -- planting the seed for the next greatest African American organizer.

The militarized police rained rubber bullets on many people, including Gloria, who were marching in a legal, peaceful protest.
The people's demands are: Arrest murdering police officer Gary Wilson; Change the police force; Force the resignation of the DA prosecutor and of the police chief.
Gloria states that the Militarized Police show racism and a disdain for the poor, that those in power focus on dividing and conquering the working class. She derides the power system: Pentagon giving weapons to local police and the FBI countering People's movements with a coordinated (and financed by taxpayers) plan.
