The Shortwave Report 6/22/07 ¡Listen Globally!

outfarpress@saber.net 707 459-1760 PO Box 1162 Willits CA 95490

A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio. With times and freqs for listening at home. 2 files- broadcast and slow-modem streaming. Free to rebroadcast. China, Netherlands, Cuba, and Russia.

Dear Radio Friend,
            The latest Shortwave Report (June 22) is up at the website
http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (4.9MB) (28:59)

     This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- The long stalled 6-party talks with N Korea are moving forward now that N Korean funds seized by the US government have been released. The US says it opposes any attempt by the Taiwan government to hold a referendum on whether it should apply to the UN as an independent nation. Japan's parliament has voted to extend its air support in Iraq for another 2 years.
From NETHERLANDS- Australia, under John Howard, is spending around 7 billion dollars on 3 new warships- the question is, why does Australia feel a need for such equipment? An analysis of the West's isolation of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, which will lead to a serious humanitarian crisis.
From CUBA- At a Human Rights conference in Dublin, former president Jimmy Carter accused the US, the EU, and Israel of dividing Palestine by financing Fatah, despite the clear victory of Hamas in 2006 elections. The US funded aerial spraying of coca plantations in Colombia has severely damaged the DNA of Ecuadorians living near the border- the herbicide being used is a form of Roundup, manufactured by US corporation Monsanto. A US court has heard the arguments in a lawsuit filed by Vietnamese victims of the aerial spraying of Agent Orange in the 1960s and 70s. The US dumped 18 million gallons of the herbicide in Vietnam, and since 1975 over 150,000 children have been born with birth defects.
From RUSSIA- US Army experts admit that about one third of US troops in Iraq are developing mental problems. A commentary on the Western support for the Palestinian faction Fatah, while providing no aid for the one and a half million residents of the Gaza Strip, which was militarily seized by Hamas. An article in the Washington Times states that China, Russia, and Iran present a new "Axis of Evil," equipped with nuclear weapons- a commentary says the article is an excuse for the US and others to further develop their own nuclear weapons.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at- http://www.campusprogress.org/soundvision/780/big-stories-shortwaves
 
I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://radio.mediageek.net

  All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
This program will be aired on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via <http://www.kzyx.org >
There are several other streams that work better- < http://www.freakradio.org >Freak Radio Santa Cruz  now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am and Saturday at 11am(PST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < http://www.radio4all.net/podcast.php/.xml?series=outFarpress%20presents > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at < http://www.radicalradio.org >
And Radio For Peace International at < http://www.rfpi.org >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)
