‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR JUNE 23, 2017: Hundreds Attend Vigil for Murdered Muslim Girl…Trumpcare is Not a Secret Anymore…Headlines on Libya’s Slave Markets…DAPL, the Planet, J20 and More… Janine Jackson on Media…Gerald Horne on U.S. Wars 


Today’s packed show is all about resisting the normalization of war abroad and at home, resisting the idea that militarism, police terror and hate crimes will accepted as part of a new hyper reality. We hear voices from among the hundreds that gathered in DC for a vigil for Nabra Hassanen, a 17-year-old Muslim girl kidnapped and murdered in northern Virginia. And those gathered also raised up the names of Charleena Lyles, just killed by police in Seattle, and Philando Castile, whose killer just walked free in Minnesota. Gerald Horne joins us to talk about war. Also, it’s the fourth Friday and Janine Jackson, host of “CounterSpin,” is in the house for our monthly look at media and culture.
