Appalachia: A National Sacrifice ZoneAlso on the show: "Coal is an outlaw enterprise," declared Robert Kennedy Jr. in a New York Times op-ed last December. Apart from that forceful opinion piece, though, you probably haven't seen very much about one of the most damaging -- to people and the environment -- aspects of that enterprise: mountaintop removal. After years of activism, are we about to see an end to that harmful process? We'll hear from Jeff Biggers, author of Reckoning at Eagle Creek: The Secret Legacy of Coal in the Heartland.

nobody cares about Venezuela in the US. this is an excuse the socialist government (theirs not ours) is using to distract from their failings. how fucked up must a country be not to be have store shelves stocked with toilet paper. Even in Mosul Iraq, ISIS beheads and burns alive its enemies but the stores have shit paper. That tells you a lot about Venezuela and the bolivar revolution's usefulness.

You must not know anything about history of Latin America and US relationships and are not grasping the information presented here?

If its indymedia where you are coming to in order to get something other than mainstream propaganda
then read and learn and share

But just repeating mainstream capitalist propaganda here is nauseating and ignorant

People 'do care' about Venezuela and 'are interested' - if "your not" then please just move on down the road

the truth can be a scary thing to accept.

I understand your fear.

take the leap into the darkness and enlighten yourself.
