THE SHOW

WASHINGTON, DC, the belly of the beast of international military and corporate power, is also a place of activism. It is where we come to speak truth to power in the streets and in the halls and assemblies of power. But you wouldn’t know about this activism based on what is covered in the corporate media. Even so-called progressive cable news outlets tend to focus instead on the jockeying of electoral politics.

“On the Ground”, which premiered on May Day, May 1, 2014, counters this trend by giving a voice to the voiceless. The award-winning weekly hour hosted by Esther Iverem covers social justice activism, with a special emphasis on sustainable living, the environment, economics, labor and the left edge of culture and media.

The show airs Fridays 10-11am EST on 89.3 FM, WPFW Pacifica Radio, in the Washington, D.C. DMV area and the broadcast signal also reaches into portions of Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. In addition, “on the Ground” is streamed live on wpfwfm.org, distributed by Pacifica and picked up regularly by Pacifica affiliates around the U.S. The shows are archived permanently on our show website, www.onthegroundshow.org. The Friday time slot began on April 8, 2016 but the show first aired as the Thursday edition of “Community Watch and Comment,” 11 am-noon. The show streams live at wpfwfm.org and is archived there for two weeks. This site, www.onthegroundshow.org, includes a permanent audio archive of the show.

One thought on “THE SHOW

  1. SLAVERY MUST BE ABOLISHED 100%
    NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Please sign this Online White House Petition
    And
    Encourage others to do likewise.

    Slavery in any form is not acceptable and must not be advocated as it is currently according to the Constitution of the United States. Amendment XIII (Ratified December 6, 1865). Section 1 states:

    Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, EXCEPT AS A PUNISHMENT FOR CRIME whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    The United States of America must take the lead in 100% abolishment of all forms of slavery to include as punishment for a duly convicted crime. Truly no debate is needed and Congress could accomplish this before December 31, 2015.
