On this week’s program, we talk with Sarah van Gelder, executive editor at Yes! Magazine. We also debate the concept of nullification – a topic which is gaining increasing attention this election cycle and with the recent health care bill – whereby states may choose to “nullify” federal laws; legal, constitutional, necessary? And lastly, we take a look at the lawsuits and aftermath of the BP oil spill – who’s suing who, is the $20 billion compensation fund fair, and what about the ecosystem itself?
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 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.
