This week we present Between The Lines' summary of

under-reported news stories and:

(1)China's Reaction to U.S. Spy Plane Incident Related to Its History

of Conflicts with Imperial Powers

Interview by Scott Harris.

Robert Weil, author of "Red Cat, White Cat: China and the

Contradictions of Market Socialism," examines the historical

context of this incident in which China is challenging U.S.

military power on its national border while U.S. business is

lured to China's cheap labor pool and enormous markets.

(2) Children's Defense Fund Decries Bush Proposed Budget Cuts for

Programs that Assist Poor Children

Interview by Melinda Tuhus.

Helen Blank, child care director for the Children's Defense

Fund explains how these proposed cuts will affect children

and their families, and what her organization is doing to

actively oppose the Bush budget.

(3) Labor Historian Examines Challenges Ahead for Global Social Justice


Interview by Scott Harris.

Labor historian Jeremy Brecher, author of "Globalization From

Below: The Power of Solidarity," discusses the challenges

ahead for the growing global social justice movement.

(4) This week's summary of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

--Iraqi health officials claim U.S. military use of depleted

uranium ammunition during Gulf War has led to 100 percent

increase in cancer cases in Iraq.

-- Federal H-2A program, which allows migrant workers

from poor nations to pick crops on American farms, subjects

these workers to substandard living and working conditions.

-- Civil liberties advocates say public libraries and schools

required by law to install filtering software on Internet

computers compromises intellectual freedom.
