For the first half of the program, Peter and Mickey speak with author David Swanson about the state of the U-S peace movement. Then, a look back at the Kent State massacre, now 46 years old. The guests are Laurel Krause, sister of shooting victim Allison Krause, and founder of the Kent State Truth Tribunal, and activist-attorney Michael Kuzma. They discuss recently-discovered evidence, as well as Kuzma’s efforts to obtain documents which could illuminate the FBI’s involvement.
This May Day program begins with musicologist TM Scruggs sharing some of the best-known labor and revolutionary ballads.
