Glen Ford

There is nothing at the center of politics but endless war and austerity.

Black Agenda Report's Glen Ford explores the erasure of race and class politics under a corporate-captured center - as the Democratic establishment reacts to the threat of Donald Trump with its own attacks on the left, and a renewed commitment to global imperialism, permanent war abroad, and deep austerity at home.

Glen wrote the article The Great Un-Blackening: The Corporate Project to Erase Black People from Politics for Black Agenda Report.

Glen spoke to us from the Black is Back Coalition March in Washington, DC.



Greg Palast

A mockery of democracy: Inside the Republican voter purge program.

Investigative journalist Greg Palast reports on the massive, fraudulent voter purge program enacted by Republicans to - and aided by the courts, an uninterested (mostly White) mainstream press and a clueless (mostly White) Democratic establishment - and his legal battles to expose the mechanisms of disenfranchisement in the 21st century.

Greg posted the video How to Steal Georgia in 7 Minutes for Salon and wrote the article Georgia’s Brian Kemp Purged 340,134 Voters, Falsely Asserting They Had Moved for Truthout.

Greg's documentary The Best Democracy Money Can Buy gets way into this, you should watch it.
