Ed Bisch Fights to Hold Sacklers Accountable for Opioid Epidemic 22 Years After Son Died of Overdose

Democracy Now - Fri, 06/02/2023 - 13:00
We continue our look at the Sackler family — the billionaire owners of OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma — and efforts to hold them accountable, after a federal appeals court ruled this week they can receive complete immunity from all current and future civil litigation related to their role in creating and fueling the opioid epidemic. We speak with Ed Bisch about his campaign to raise awareness and calls for the DOJ to prosecute the Sacklers after his 18-year-old son, Eddie, died of an OxyContin-related overdose in 2001. He founded Relatives Against Purdue Pharma. We also speak about the history of the company with Christopher Glazek, an investigative reporter who was the first to publicly report that the Sackler family had significantly profited from selling the opioid OxyContin while fully aware that the highly addictive drug was directly fueling the opioid epidemic in America.

MLK Biographer Jonathan Eig on King's Early Life, Radicalization & How Racism Still Kills

Democracy Now - Tue, 05/30/2023 - 13:00
In Part 2 of our interview with journalist Jonathan Eig about his new book, King: A Life, the first major biography of the civil rights leader in more than 35 years, he talks about King’s early life and father; King’s formerly enslaved grandparents; the FBI’s push for him to abandon colleagues who were communists; and his opposition to the Vietnam War and launch of the Poor People’s Campaign just before he was killed. “We need to remember the radical words he spoke, and not just the safe ones,” Eig says. In Part 1, we looked at how the book draws on unredacted FBI files, as well as the files of the personal aide to President Lyndon Baines Johnson, to show how Johnson and others partnered in the FBI’s surveillance of King and efforts to destroy him, led by director J. Edgar Hoover. Eig also interviewed more than 200 people, including many who knew King closely, like the singer, actor and activist Harry Belafonte. The book has also drawn attention for its revelation that King was less critical of Malcolm X than previously thought.

Israel har derimot ikke rett

Comments - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 08:49

Israel har derimot ikke rett til å okkupere andres territorium i tiår, og å drive en blokade av Gaza. Mot slik ulovlig okkupasjon har palestinerne tvert imot en folkerettslig veletablert rett til å forsvare seg og yte motstand, en rett som er slått fast av FN
