‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR APRIL 29, 2022: From Havana — Cuba Prepares First Public International Workers’ Day Since Start of Pandemic and Denounces Illegal U.S. Blockade… Climate, Care and Jobs Rally Outside White House… National Cannabis Policy Summit in DC… And More 


As the U.S. funnels more weapons to Ukraine, prolonging the war and ensuring more death and destruction, Cuba prepares to celebrate the lives of workers on International Workers Day, the first public celebration since 2019. Plus, in Cuba and around the world, people are suffering more impacts from the climate catastrophe. We hear voices from ‘Fight for Our Future: Rally for Climate, Care, Jobs and Justice’ in front of the White House. And cannabis activists want President Biden to keep his promises to decriminalize marijuana. We speak to Dasheeda Dawson, Cannabis Program Manager for the City of Portland. Plus an interview with Witness for Peace organizer in Cuba, Pambana Bassett, and headlines on the 60-year illegal blockade of Cuba, freedom for Steven Donziger and more.  

Voices: Pambana Bassett, Dasheeda Dawson, Michele Roberts, Jerry Hudson, Liz Schuler, Yhamir Chabor, Magnolia Meade
