On this week’s program we have Part I of our interview with Pittsburgh City Councilman Doug Shieldswho recently introduced a measure that would ban corporations from natural gas drilling in the city, despite opposition which says the city doesn’t have the power to do so.  We also talk genetically modified crops – who’s planting them, which corporations have patented them, and how those decisions affect the farmers and the food that you eat.

If you’re in the Spokane listening area, you can listen to Democracy Matters every Wednesday at 12:30 pm Eastern/9:30 am Pacific, or Thursday at 10 am Eastern/7am Pacific, at 89.9FM, best heard at 92.3FM.  Or you can listen online at KYRS, Spokane’s Thin Air Community Radio.

You can also listen anytime by podcasting the show.

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.
