Bill Resnick: killing terrorists vs. ending terrorism

program date: 
Mon, 05/02/2011

 Bill reminds us of the role the US government had in building Al Qaeda during the Cold War and their support of dictatorships in Muslim countries. These twin strategies gutted labor and otherwise left movements in these countries, leaving the closest thing to a voice of the people in the hands of conservative groups inclined to the use of terror. Bill advocates empowering those (left, labor, peace and environmental) movements that constructively advocate for people's interests and eliminate the conditions of terrorism instead of targeting terrorists.

All Labor Has Dignity, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Economic Justice

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Michael Honey about "All Labor Has Dignity," a book of speeches by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on economic justice. Honey edited the book.

People forget that Dr. King was every bit as committed to economic justice as he was to ending racial segregation. As we struggle with massive unemployment, a staggering racial wealth gap, and the near collapse of our financial system, King’s prophetic writings and speeches underscore King’s relevance for today. Michael Honey's collection traces King’s economic dream, from lectures to unions in the 1960s to addresses during his Poor People’s Campaign, culminating with his momentous “Mountaintop” speech, delivered in support of striking black sanitation workers in Memphis.
