On the April 24, 2014 edition of Tell Somebody, we
heard from Dr. Vandana Shiva, longtime peace activist Brian
Terrell, and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern.
Author and ecological activist Dr. Shiva made some brief remarks at
a dinner a day after speaking at Unity Temple on the Plaza in
Kansas City on April 17, an event broadcast live on 90.1 FM KKFI
Community Radio. In her dinner remarks, she talked about the
worship of cow dung, recalled receiving an “award” from a Monsanto
PR flack, and explained how people can respond at a planetary scale
through local action.
Brian Terrell returned to Whiteman Air Force Base, the site of his
2012 arrest resulting in a 6 month prison sentence for trying to
deliver an indictment to the base commander. Terrell talked
about B-2 bombers, and the irony of how drone warfare, ostensibly
intended to keep war at a distance, actually brings it closer.
Ray McGovern also spoke at Whiteman AFB, starting out by calling
Brian Terrell a prophet. McGovern talked about the silence of
the institutional church about racist war, and comments on
reporting by Sy Hersh, published that day, about Secretary of State
John Kerry’s lies about a hoped for “little” war against Syria.
