‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR MAY 24, 2024: The Battle Between Censorship and Truth… The New McCarthyism… DC High School Activists Sue to Speak on Palestine… Plus Headlines  

Today’s information war in the United States is a battle between censorship and the right to tell the truth, particularly about Palestine and Apartheid Israel. For our monthly special on media and culture, we speak to journalist Jon Jeter. And at a high school in DC, Arab students are banned from screening the film “The Occupation of the American Mind,” but we listen to portions of it on this show. Plus headlines on Debt Collective, funeral for Iran president, Kenya troops to Haiti, a combined celebration for Africa and Palestine liberation at Malcolm X Park in DC.

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. In this new era of fake corporate news, we have to be and support our own media! Please click here or click on the Support-Donate tab on this website to subscribe for as little as $3 a month.
