‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR MAY 19, 2017: THE F-WORD WITH JEROME SCOTT OF THE LEAGUE OF REVOLUTIONARY BLACK WORKERS…FIGHTING TO KEEP AN OPEN INTERNET…HONORING MALCOLM X…AND MORE


On today’s show, “The F-Word,” our monthly discussion on fascism. This month’s guest is Jerome Scott, veteran activist, labor organizer and founding member of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers, which organized in the auto plants of Detroit in the 1960s-70s. And this is the birthday of human rights giant and Muslim minister Malcolm X. Had he not been taken away from us and lived, he would be 92 years old today. We play more excerpts of his speeches.   Also, an important behind-the-scenes thing happening this week that is NOT being covered by the corporate media—is the FCC actually making moves to gut net neutrality, to gut rules that keep the Internet open, free and equally accessible to everyone. There was a big FCC meeting on May 18  to start the nefarious process and an even BIGGER response outside by a rally of demonstrators saying hands off my Internet. More headlines.
