On the Road in Southeast Asia: Mindanao

Most of the news in South East Asia has been dominated in recent days by the spreading economic crisis. But lost in the reports are other important issues and ongoing conflicts in the region. In the southern Philippines, half a million residents have fled recent violence as Muslim separatist groups and the central government struggle through the latest round of negotiations. In the second in a series of dispatches from the region, APF collective member Dorian Merina reports from Manila.

Democracy on Wall Street! Protesters demand answers

The crash of financial markets has flooded the news. As people everywhere try to secure their homes and retirement plans, others call the government bail-out robbery. On September 25th, protesters organized in cities across the country to express their outcry. To hear about these citizen actions and the work that lies ahead, as the bailout plan moves forward, we speak to independent journalist Arun Gupta, who is a writer and editor for The Indypendent.

The distribution was sponsored by a non-profit called The Clarion Fund. In response to the distribution and the collusion with mainstream newspapers, we will hear from Ibrahim Hooper, National Communications Director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Washington D.C.-based Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization.
