On this week’s program, we look at the major bills coming out of Congress – tax cuts, food safety, and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – and what they really mean for our country (for example, the so-called repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell authorizes a study, not a repeal). We also look at Democracy Schools – what they’re all about, and how they examine our existing structure of law and how the history of how we got to this place in which we have a “corporate state.”

If you’re in the Spokane listening area, you can listen to Democracy Matters every Wednesday at 12:30pm Eastern/9:30am Pacific, or Thursday at 10am 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 6am 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.
