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.

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.

The Shock Decade: Abe and Joe look at the 10 years of post-Sept. 11 chaos and exploitation.

The Shock Doctrine: Author Naomi Klein's explanation of capitalism's use of disasters -- and the numb shock that accompanies them -- to carry out radical "free market" revisions. From Afghanistan to Iraq, from Guantanamo to the PATRIOT Act, from Katrina to the financial crisis of 2008, the post-Sept. 11 world has been one big application of the Shock Doctrine. Abe and Joe survey the wreckage.
