Unheard Voices Counter the 'Unite the Right2' Rally at the White House...What is Happening in Venezuela?...Headlines on Keystone XL, Children Still Snatched from their Parents, Young Climate Activists Challenge Dems

WASHINGTON, DC, the belly of the beast of international military and corporate power, is also a place of activism. It is where we come to speak truth to power in the streets and in the halls and assemblies of power. But you wouldn’t know about this activism based on what is covered in the corporate media. Even so-called progressive cable news outlets tend to focus instead on the jockeying of electoral politics.

“On the Ground,” which premiered on May Day, May 1, 2014, counters this trend by giving a voice to the voiceless. The award-winning weekly hour hosted by Esther Iverem covers social justice activism, with a special emphasis on sustainable living, the environment, economics, labor and the left edge of culture and media.
