‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR DECEMBER 9, 2022: Brian Becker on Moore v. Harper and the Right-Wing Assault on Democratic Rights… From Our Archives: Pedro Castillo Supporters Rally at the OAS… Plus Headlines on Countering the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit and More…  

The Moore v. Harper case before the Supreme Court could give the far right in the United States what they cannot get through free and fair elections–and that is permanent rule. We speak to veteran activist Brian Becker. And, as the oligarchy in Peru has succeeded in their year-long effort to oust leftist president Pedro Castillo, we go our archives to hear voices of Castillo supporters rallying here, outside the Organization of American States during the summer of 2021. The rally was just days after Castillo’s win over Keiko Fujimori, daughter of longtime Peruvian dictator. From day one, Castillo’s supporters had to defend him against fascist attempts to overturn his win. 

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.
