ACTIVISM AND YOU: FIRED UP OR BURNT OUT?

Program: 
More Talk Radio
Air date: 
Mon, 03/16/2015 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
A discussion on activism and what inspires or defeats us

Join Celeste and Cecil for a discussion about  activism and finding balance in our lives. 

The Trappist monk and social critic Thomas Merton o observed  “There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence to which the idealist most easily succumbs: activism and overwork. The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to destroys the fruitfulness of our own work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.”

Host Cecil Prescod interviews Kathy Kelly, of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. In early June she returned from over a month in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Several articles written by Kathy and Joshua Broiler are on the group's web page: http://vcnv.org .
Kathy says "it's what do people in Afghanistan want. There's real fear of the Taliban, but people ask why 
the U.S. invaders and their warlord clients should run the country. There are an estimated 850 children dying every day (see Save the Children). Meanwhile, we're spending $1 million per year just to deploy one 
soldier."

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Steven Fake, co author with Kevin Funk of "Scramble for Africa: Darfur Intervention and the USA."

Steven Fake and Kevin Fink have been researching and writing about Sudan since 2006. Their book is a scathing, indictment of the constellation of government leaders, corporate media outlets, and NGOs swirling around Sudan and the myriad ways in which the West has failed Darfur.

Celeste and Cecil will ask Steven Fake about the history of US relations with Sudan, the level of funding of humanitarian efforts in Africa, and some of the contradictions in how aid and humanitarian efforts are distributed.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
