Coming to you from the vigilant studios of KPFA in Berkeley California, this is Flashpoints.
First up, we look at what is being called “an historic visit” by Trump to North Korea. The cameras were whirring and clicking as Trump strolled with Kim Jong Un across the imaginary line crafted by decades of US foreign policy called the DMZ or demilitarized zone. Then we turn our attention to what is being called the “new Red scare” as Chinese and Chinese American researchers and academics come under increasing surveillance and scrutiny by the FBI and the Department of Justice. Finally, we feature an interview with Alice Slater the New York Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, who also serves on the Coordinating Committee of World Beyond War. We talk about the Green New Deal, Democratic party politics and more.
I’m Kevin Pina, with all this straight ahead on your daily investigative news magazine, Flashpoints on Pacifica Radio, stay tuned.
