Published on May 6, 2013

Post-9/11 repression pales in comparison to what Americans have had in the past, and we have more ways to make a change than people used to have. So why aren’t we doing anything with them?

“I’ve never seen such fear and anger in the country before,” Noam Chomsky says in this video. “On the other hand, the opportunities are greater than before. There’s much more freedom.”

Criminalizing Compassion: How Ag-Gag Legislation Lets Corporations Set the Laws of the Land


videonation

Published on Jul 31, 2013

Did you know that, in several states, you can be prosecuted for filming inside a slaughterhouse or other animal agricultural facility? Amy Meyer does, which is why, when parked across the street from the Dale T. Smith and Sons Meat Packing Company in Draper, Utah, a suburb south of Salt Lake City, and walked up to the plant’s fence, she was careful to never leave public property. But when Meyer took out her camera and began to film, she set herself up to become the agricultural industry’s first-ever “Ag Gag” criminal.

Watch the full video to hear more about Meyer’s story, and read this piece to learn just how much large corporate interests like the agricultural industry are bending our system of rules in their interest: http://thenat.in/13wugAY

Published on Jul 31, 2013

China’s capital Beijing is one of the world’s most polluted cities. Many blame the frequent smog on the city’s more than five million vehicles. But, where some see cars as a source of pollution, others see a solution as well. VOA’s Bill Ide reports from the Chinese capital about efforts to make carpooling more common place.

It Can’t Happen Here? But it IS Happening There!

Tar sands oil has been leaking into the Alberta, Canada countryside for months now – but the operators of the broken pipeline still have no idea where the oil is coming from – or how to stop the leak. Shouldn’t this disaster up North be a wake-up call to us all – about the future America faces if the Keystone XL pipeline is approved?
