Crypto-Country: The Wild Wild Works

“Is Open Source underfunded and up for grabs? Here’s Stephen Vaughan-Nichols   for Linux and Open Source .
 
 “To help fix the cash flow problem, a dozen top technology companies, including Amazon, IBM, Intel, and VMware, joined forces with The Linux Foundation to form the Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII)”. –
Richard Stallman the creator of GNU and the real author of the Free Software Movement has other ideas.

5/7 - A Way Forward for Israel-Palestine

Air date: 
Wed, 05/07/2014 - 8:00am - 11:00am
Short Description: 
A special program on how we can achieve peace with justice
With the breakdown of peace talks, expansion of settlements, and harsh rhetoric currently passing for 'dialogue' in the Israel-Palestine conflict, it's sometimes hard to have hope that this entrenched conflict can come to a peaceful resolution.

On this special program, we'll show you that there is still reason to hope.  Max Blumenthal, Miko Peled, and Ali Abunimah are all deeply involved in this issue, and all have this in common: they believe that there will be peace with justice in Israel-Palestine in our lifetimes.

We'll bring you the voices of an Israeli, a Palestinian and an American who are on the frontlines in the struggle for a just peace in Israel-Palestine.
