We focus our attention on several stories from across the country of civil rights under attack: At the gates of Fort Huachuca, Arizona, The US Army continues to jail nonviolent protesters who demonstrate against the military’s teaching of torture and interrogation tactics; in New York City, we hear the case of the New Jersey Seven, a group of women assaulted and imprisoned in a sexist and homophobic attack; also, from Chicago, JR and the Block Report with Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. feature an update on the case of political prisoner Aaron Patterson; plus, the CIA destroys evidential tapes of US torture tactics, political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal reports on that story; in San Francisco, student and youth organizers fight to keep the JROTC off high school campuses; and the Knight Report.
