A weekly 30 minute review of international news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio and the internet. With times, frequencies, and websites for listening at home. 3 files- Highest quality broadcast, regular broadcast, and slow-modem streaming. Spanish National Radio, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK Japan.

Dear Radio Friend,

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK World Radio Japan,

From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the murder of 17 unarmed Palestinians during a demonstration last week. Another 1400 people were injured by Israeli troops while a fence separated them. This year is the 70th anniversary of Nakba, "Day of the Catastrophe," the day commemorating the Israeli seizure of Palestinian towns and villages. Following the violence, the US blocked a UN Security Council statement calling for an independent investigation of the incidents. A Spanish researcher say that the demonstrations are being presented as violent but are caused by the entrapment of people trapped in occupied territory. A Palestinian journalist reported that 3 other journalists were injured in the attacks and described the conditions of the occupation as the cause of the violence. The protests will continue until May 15, Nakba, the day that the US says it will open its new embassy in Jerusalem. The massacre last week was the deadliest day of violence since the war in 2014 when 2250 Palestinians were killed.

From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Professor Alfred de Zayas, UN independent expert on the Promotion of Democratic International Order. They discussed the EU stance on the arrests of Catalan politicians for holding a peaceful referendum on independence from Spain. EU leaders say they do not want to get involved in internal affairs of member states though they have in Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia. The professor says that the Spanish government has criminalized the freedom of expression and the exercise of democracy. He then talks about how EU sanctions against Venezuela are creating the scarcities which has caused a humanitarian crisis, resulting in deaths. He says it is reminiscent of 1970 when Allende became president of Chile, leading to US imposed economic sanctions and ultimately a coup choreographed by Henry Kissinger and the CIA. The US wants to bring human rights charges against Venezuelan President Maduro before the International Criminal Court.

From CUBA- Venezuela has rolled out a cryptocurrency, the Petro, for international transactions with Russia- this follows Trump imposed economic sanctions on Venezuela which ban the purchase of Venezuelan debt. Former labor minister Carlos Quesada won the presidential election in Costa Rica against an evangelical Christian who opposed same-sex rights. In Egypt the incumbent President el-Sisi won another term reportedly with 97% of the vote.

From JAPAN- Japan is concerned over the tariff threats being hurled by the US and now China- China has also lodged a complaint with the World Trade Organization, saying tariffs will hurt the global economy. Japan has changed rules to allow for more renewable energy sources. North Korea hosted South Korean musicians with Kim Jong-un in attendance and a message on stage saying "Let's achieve unification."
