Remembering Danny Chen

On Tuesday June 25, Community Board 3 in New York's Chinatown/Lower East Side passed a unanimous resolution in support of naming part of Elizabeth Street in Chinatown the "Danny Chen Way" - in honor of Private Danny Chen, the 19- year old U.S. army soldier who died after only six weeks in Afghanistan. A year and a half after Danny Chen's death, how is his family coping with the loss of their only child? How does the community assess the outcome of the court martial proceedings, and what is the legacy that Danny leaves behind? APF sat down with Danny's cousin Banny Chen and documentary filmmaker Mansee Kong.

People of the Pacific Gather at Moana Nui

Last June, over 45 speakers from 20 nations gathered at Moana Nui 2013 in Berkeley, California. Indigenous people and activists from Guam, Hawaii, New Guinea and other Pacific Island nations convened to share their struggles against growing military and corporate threats to their economies, land and resources and culture. Tonight we listen to speakers at the three-day gathering talk about giant trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and its impact on the Pacific region, increased militarization in places like Guam due to the "Pacific Pivot," and how they are redefining resistance in our current age of globalization. Special thanks to our colleagues at Apex Express on KPFA in Berkeley for providing audio for the rebroadcast.
