‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR DECEMBER 31, 2021: End-Of-Year Review, Part 2: From Cop26, to Chile’s Progressive Victory, to Striketober, to the New Fight for Voting Rights and U.S. Democracy


In Part 1, we covered the January 6th fascist attack on the U.S. Capital, the first year of the Biden administration, the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, ongoing cases of police terror and murder, including here in DC. And, finally, we began our discussion of international news with our geopolitical analyst professor Gerald Horne breaking down the latest on the triangular relationship BETWEEN the United States, Russia and China.

In Part 2, we pick up that discussion, starting with the victory of Gabriel Boric and progressive forces in Chile over a far-right follower of the former U.S. backed dictator Augusto Pinochet. Also, labor victories and struggles, and the fight for Voting Rights and other basics of American democracy.  

The show is made possible only by our volunteer energy, our resolve to keep the people’s voices on the air, and by support from our listeners.
