People Rise Up Radio - 1917 Espionage Act: the war on journalists, activists, and whistleblowers

004-People Rise Up Radio Ep 04 05-28-13

On our fourth episode of People Rise Up Radio, which aired on May 28th, 2013, we discussed the historical and present day abuse of the 1917 Espionage Act. The law originally billed as a means to deal with spies working for foreign powers has instead been used to silence dissent since its passage. The number of activists, journalists, and whistleblowers that have been convicted and executed citing the Act vastly outnumber agents for foreign powers. The Obama administration has successfully used it more than all other administrations combined. We also aired our popular COINTEL-PRO based informational segment “How To Spot A Spy” – skill share for activists. Plus, Know Your Rights, the People’s History, and the rarely produced 420 Report.

ORIGINAL SHOW NOTES:

This week in the news:

Expanding DOJ violations of Freedom of the Press

Mexico’s Chiapas “administrator” has been working with Isreali Defense

PBS caves to Koch Brother demands to pull documentary “Citizen Koch”

FOIA release presents clearer picture of surveillance of OWS movement by authorities

Tornado hits Oklahoma – Occupy springs in to action with #OpOK Relief

Russia sends weapons and ships to aid Assad government

Apple dodges billions in taxes

038 – People Rise Up Radio – Prisoner Solidarity Part 1

Over our past 37 episodes we have often spoken of political prisoners. Sometimes those facing the injustice system have been our friends in real life. Always, they are our comrades.

For our first show back, we decided to take a look back and provide updates on prisoners we have featured on past shows.

This episode is part one of two that begins to express our love and rage for our comrades who have been captured by the injustice system.

We speak with ex-prisoner Cecily McMillan of Occupy Wall Street on her experiences with Occupy, the injustice system, and Rikers Island.

We also have a clip provided by Lucy Parks of the #FloodWallStreet12.

And please, in the name of all that is scared – DON’T MAKE PRISONERS TO BEGIN WITH! Learn about Jury Nullification

This episode features the music of Marx Sick Mind https://soundcloud.com/marxsickmind/no-justice-just-us
And Anne Feeney who will be a guest on a future show soon!
http://annefeeney.com/

Part two of this series will feature Juss with the Cleveland 4 Solidarity Network and Lanz Priestly – recently freed after nine months in prison – of Occupy Sydney Plus clips from Mumia Abu Jamal & Herman Wallace of the Angola 3 courtesy Prison Radio http://prisonradio.org/ and CrimethInc’s Ex-Worker Podcast http://www.crimethinc.com/podcast/. We also give an extensive update on revolutions worldwide that occurred these past seven months.

We also have a clip from CounterSpin – Janine Jackson speaking with Chris King of the St. Louis American, the oldest African American daily in the United States, about Ferguson.
