Flashpoints – May 8, 2008

Over a million and a half Burmese in life-threatening conditions as the narco-dictatorship refuses outside aid; also, we get a report under fire from the streets of Beirut, where six people have been killed in violent political clashes; plus, the US occupation military seals of Sadr City in preparation for a wide-scale assault, we’ll speak with Dahr Jamail; Kristen Ess reports on Israeli attacks in occupied Palestine as Palestinians commemorate 60 years of ongoing expulsion and ethnic cleansing by Israel; and we’ll air moving excerpts of dramatic readings of Rachel Corrie’s journals.
