‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR OCTOBER 25, 2019: “Systemic” Political Surveillance by FBI…Former Exxon Scientists Tell Congress That Oil Giant Predicted Catastrophic Climate Change…Headlines on Impeachment Drama, Syria, Toxic Baby Food and More…


A new report on FBI surveillance details how nearly every major social movement of the past decade — including Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter– has been targeted by the FBI. And while this week’s Washington drama included Republicans bumrushing Trump’s impeachment hearing, far more dramatic testimony was heard about fossil fuel giants like Exxon knowing and lying for decades about climate change. 

Headlines: on Syria; Impeachment; Baby Foods Test Positive for Heavy Metals; Catholic activists opposed to nuclear weapons known as the Kings Bay Plowshares 7 found guilty; Advocates for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange are fighting against his extradition from the UK; Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is grilled by lawmakers; New book on untold history of music; Don’t Mute DC upcoming events.
