Seven months into a new administration and the nation still finds itself embroiled in two Asian wars. Many Americans would have difficulty explaining how the Obama administration's conduct of these wars differs from the last administration's. They're certainly not being helped by policymakers and pundits who are working overtime to marginalize arguments for American withdrawal from the region. With the economy now people's foremost concern, how does the peace movement change the national conversation about war and peace?

Ellen Augustine and Barry Hermanson are Californian residents who have started a campaign to alert fellow citizens to the gross overspending of the US military budget.

Their campaign, called Not My Priorities, centers on educating people through a simple pie chart about the discrepancy in spending on the Pentagon versus all other areas in the national budget.

Hermanson, who founded the campaign was a Green Party candidate for congress in California's 12th Congressional District. Augustine also ran for the US congress, and founded four non-profit organisations. This is an inspiring interview with two people who believe Americans can harness their democratic process, and really make a difference.

What's the future of community media? A discussion with Erik Mollberg and Phil Busse

As recent events in Iran have shown, technology has given ordinary people the power to inform neighbors down the street and strangers halfway around the world about important events regardless of government censorship or corporate media indifference. "Community media" - citizen-operated print, broadcast and digital technologies - is filling the information needs of a growing number of Americans.
