‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR SEPTEMBER 25, 2020: Denver BLM Activists Freed…Protesters Targeted by State Repression…Media and Culture Highlight: Julian Assange, Trump Attacks on Howard Zinn and Headlines

The failure to indict Louisville police officers in the murder of Breonna Taylor and the arrests, instead, of those protesting police killings, proves once again that there are two systems of justice in the U.S.: One for cops and one for everyone else. We speak to Mara Verheyden-Hilliard. And whether the target is historian Howard Zinn, the New York Times 1619 Project, or Julian Assange, the Trump administration and corporate media are working hard for the right to keep the public miseducated and misinformed. We speak to journalist and author Jon Jeter.

Plus headlines: With more than 200,000 Americans dead from coronavirus, and millions more suffering economically, there is still no national plan to address either the medical or fiscal crisis…the Poor People’s Campaign organized a car caravan to the DC home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell…DC protests for justice for Breonna Taylor…three Denver-area Black Lives Matter activists, Joel Northam,  Eliza Lucero and Lillian House,  were released on bond…International Day of Peace…DC Jazzfest…This week in history.
