Why is the US backing a coup in Guinea? Would it surprise you to learn it may be related to US aggression against China? Kambale Musavuli, activist, writer, and analyst with the Center for Research on the Congo-Kinshasa, explains. Several Western outlets are accusing the Ethiopian government of committing genocide in the Tigray region. Are these claims truthful or yet more interventionist propaganda? Jeff Pearce, historian, journalist & author of “Prevail: The Inspiring Story of Ethiopia's Victory over Mussolini's Invasion, 1935-1941” and the forthcoming book "The Gifts of Africa: How a Continent and Its People Changed the World," breaks it all down for us. It’s been over a week since Hurricane Ida swept across the country, but its devastating effects are still being felt in places like Southern Louisiana. While the New Orleans levees held, many in nearby areas broke. Stepping in where the state has failed, community organizations are the primary aid givers for those suffering from destruction and displacement. Flozell Daniels, Jr., President & CEO of Foundation for Louisiana, member of the Governor’s Climate Initiatives Task Force & Louisiana Public Defender Board, and Charlotte Clarke, Executive Director of Common Ground Relief & environmental activist, tell us more about what's happening on the ground. Six Palestinians broke out of Gilboa prison and, as of yet, have been able to evade recapture by Israeli forces, despite intense ongoing search efforts.

Hadeel Shatara, Palestine coordinator of Samidoun, Palestinian prisoner rights group, tells us more.

Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. They control the news cycle, to which social media and even most “alternative” media is forced to respond. We are breaking through that cycle. We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time. People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through. We can be that media arm, but only with your help. Become a Patron and join us on the front lines in the battle of ideas.
