Child Arrests in Palestine

Program: 
Radiozine
Air date: 
Thu, 07/31/2014 - 11:30am - 12:00pm
Short Description: 
Special program from WERU-FM
Israel tries and convicts hundreds of Palestinian children in military courts each year. Many of these children, between the ages of 12 and 17, experience abuse during their arrest and detention and about one-fifth are put into solitary confinement.

The long-term consequences of the systematic arrest and detention of children in Palestine include lifetime travel restrictions, unfinished schooling, disruptions within families, and a fear of future arrest and harm. Organizations within Palestine are working to educate and advocate for children on their rights under international law.

Vandana Shiva - Seeds & Freedom

Program: 
Alternative Radio
Air date: 
Tue, 07/29/2014 - 9:00am - 10:00am
Short Description: 
Vandana Shiva - Seeds & Freedom

What's in a seed? Life itself. Ten thousand years ago, Iraq, Egypt and India were the sites of the earliest sowing and harvesting of plants that had previously been gathered in the wild. It was a revolutionary development and made civilization possible. Since then humans have been able to grow food and feed themselves. Today, that freedom embodied in seeds is threatened. Multinational corporations, like Monsanto, have radically changed the agricultural landscape. The imposition of intellectual property rights and patenting have been ways corporations have devised to put a price tag on seeds and to undo what has been for millennia a shared heritage. Around the world there is backlash and resistance to the corporate hijacking of seeds.
