Rising Up With Sonali

Rising Up with Sonali – September 22, 2017

On today’s show, Steve Horn of DeSmogBlog joins us to discuss the massive $300 million racketeering lawsuit filed by Energy Transfer Partners against Greenpeace and other groups over the Standing Rock actions last year. Energy Transfer has retained the same attorney working for President Donald Trump. Then, Heela, a member of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of
Afghanistan (RAWA), will join us. RAWA is the oldest women’s political group in Afghanistan and Heela will explain what Trump’s escalation of the longest war means to ordinary Afghans. Finally, as Yemen, the poorest nation in the Arab Gulf struggles with a US-backed
Saudi war, a horriying cholera epidemic has now made things worse. We’ll examine the crisis with Benjamin Wiacek, the Yemen media lead for Oxfam and ask why there is so little coverage.
