War On Earth: Militarism and Environment
with Professor Tom Hastings

"Our methods of managing conflicts are at the root of our environmental problems. Of the 1200 or so US superfund sites, 900 of them relate to the Pentagon and the military contractors." - Tom Hastings

This week on Love (and Revolution) Radio, we speak with Peace and Conflict Studies Professor Tom Hastings about the interconnections between militarism and destruction of the environment. We also cover the converse subject: the connection between protecting our beloved Earth and working for peace.

About Our Guest

Tom Hastings is the Director of PeaceVoice, a professor of peace and conflict studies at Portland State University, and the author of several books including "A New Era of Nonviolence".

Coming up next! Adam Horowitz from the US Department of Arts and Culture joins us to talk about cultural democracy - the revolutionary idea that culture belongs to everyone ... and everyone has a right to shape our arts and culture. We discuss how cultural democracy supports and affirms the emergence of political democracy, and some of the interesting projects that the USDAC has launched nationwide. 

Yours in love and revolution,

Sherri and Rivera
