On the program we feature a roundtable discussion on the case of Snyder v. Phelps, involving the picketing of military funerals and First Amendment ratifications of those actions; an interview with newsmaker John Stauber, a founder of the Center for Media and Democracy and the Food Rights Network, who will talk about his work in opposition to municipal giveaways of sewage sludge as “organic compost” and about his work combating corporate public relations; and an in-depth discussion about a right to community self-determination and which legal doctrines override that right.

Listen to CELDF’s radio program – Democracy Matters – every Thursday at 10 am Eastern/7am Pacific at KYRS, Spokane’s Thin Air Community Radio.  You can also podcast the show, click on Democracy Matters.

We are also pleased to announce the syndication of the show on Public Reality Radio, WPRR, 1680 AM and 95.3 FM in Grand Rapids.  The show airs there at 6 am Eastern every Tuesday morning.

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.
