Press**Watch: Occupy!

Categories:

Earlier this week I was watching the live stream of the Occupy Wall Street protest, and a fellow worker asked what it was all about, and I realized I needed to start at the beginning with him.  So I explained how the Occupy Wall Street protests had come about as a result of historic conditions: the destruction of the Glass-Steagall regulations on banking, which had previously prevented gross speculation and gambling with mortgages but which was swept away by the neoconservatives under Senator Gramm, in the mid-Nineties.

DN! reports on the case of Georgia death row prisoner Troy Davis.

The State of Georgia is preparing to execute Troy Anthony Davis in one of the most high-profile executions in the United States in years. Davis is scheduled to be killed by lethal ejection at 7:00 p.m. EDT, one day after the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles rejected clemency.

Davis was convicted of the 1989 killing of off-duty white police officer Mark MacPhail. Since then, seven of the nine witnesses have recanted their testimony, and there is no physical evidence tying Davis to the crime scene.

Anniversaries: Attica, Magdalene Asylums, and James Chasse.

Anniversaries give us an excuse to reflect on where we have come from, and where we would like to go, and to reflect on our values. The mainstream media and government used the commemorations of 9/11, for example, to remind us to be afraid and to promote the “war on terror”. Tonight on Circle A Radio we look at other anniversaries in September, to remind ourselves of the importance of struggle, fighting injustice, and continuing the work we do. We will remember the Attica Rebellion which began on September 9, 1971, the closing of the last of the Magdalene Asylums in Ireland on September 25, 1996, and the killing of James Chasse by law enforcement officers on September 17, 2006 in Portland.
