Thursday September 20, 2013:

Feature Interview: Christian Deo speaks to Sid Lacombe, National Coordinator of the Canadian Peace Alliance to discuss potential intervention in Syria, and the peace movement’s mobilization and reaction to the idea of a US-led attack on the country, as well as the Canadian position on the intervention, and mainstream media coverage.

Independent Arts Report: Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman interviews Bill McKibben about protests over the Keystone XL pipeline, and his book “Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist”, in which he recounts the story of how he ended up handcuffed and behind bars in the summer of 2011 after leading protests against the pipeline.
