Episode 149 of the Matthew Filipowicz Show is now available to stream and download.
Coming up on today’s show, we have Salon’s Josh Eidelson back on the show to discuss how the Democrats poor treatment of unions, and the choice of Charlotte for the DNC hurts them, even as Republicans adopt Scott Walker’s anti-union strategy in their national platform.
We also have activist Ron Seifert from Tar Sands Blockade here to tell the story of seven people who were arrested after chaining themselves to a TransCanada truck to block the Keystone XL Pipeline.
We’ll also discuss the Obama administration announcement that there will be no prosecutions in George W. Bush’s CIA torture cases.
