Listen to CELDF’s radio program – Democracy Matters – every Thursday at 10am Eastern/7am Pacific at KYRS, Spokane’s Thin Air Community Radio. You can also podcast the show each week atkyrs.org/podcasts.cfm, click on Democracy Matters.
On this week’s program, we take a look at the “Father of P.R.” Edward Bernays – who believed that society had to be manipulated and pioneered propaganda techniques that are still in use today. We interview Mik Robertson, an activist from Pennsylvania who talks with us about communities fighting natural gas drilling on the Marcellus Shale. Lastly, we talk about the re-enslavement of African Americans after the Civil War – a hidden history.
Each week on Democracy Matters we bring you stories from the frontlines as communities bring rights-based organizing to their communities – asserting their local self-governing authority to make the critical decisions that affect their lives and their community.
If you are interested in having Democracy Matters broadcast on your local community radio station, give them a call and let them know.
