The latest Shortwave Report (September 28) is up on the web at in both broadcast quality (13.6MB/29:50) and quick download and streaming formats (3.4MB). It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you air it, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen, try the streaming version, lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection.
This edition features Radio Netherlands, Radio Deutsche Welle, the Voice of Russia, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From Netherlands- an update on the huge number of airline stocks bought "short" in the days before 9/11; a nuclear reactor accident in Brazil is covered up for 4 months; Iran will not help with the US anti-terrorism crusade; the UN Sec General describes recent Israeli actions as "provocative"; an Israeli peace activist describes how much the US has underestimated world resentment over its treatment of Iraq and walking out on the UN conference on racism.
From Germany- a Hamburg professor questions the equating of Islam and terrorism; European attitudes are rapidly changing in the wake of 9/11, with the Italian President equating Islamic terrorists with anti-globalization activists.
From Russia- Condalecia Rice says the US needs no UN authorization to retaliate for the 9/11 attack, and VOR responds.
From Cuba- the LA Times expresses concern for the hundreds of Arabs rounded up after the attacks; Saul Landau writes an essay called "Harboring Terrorists- Our Own List Is Long"; a Viewpoint on how Peace has become a dirty word and insult to the traumatized people in the US.
All this plus times and frequencies for listening globally at home. I hope you'll listen to this program and broadcast it if you are in that position. I'm still seeking a no-strings-attached funder, and I appreciate the ideas and encouragement I gotten from a few of you. I'd love to hear any comments you might have about any of this.
