This broadcast features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on the burgeoning crisis surrounding the poisoning of the water supply in the city of Flint by the right-wing millionaire Gov. Rick Snyder working on behalf of the banks and corporations.

Recent tests of water quality in Flint reveals that excessively dangerous levels of lead remain even with the utilization of filters; Detroit Federation of Teachers have filed a lawsuit demanding that the Snyder-controlled public schools immediately clean up the horrendous physical and environmental conditions prevailing in the system which have been subjected to wildcat strikes demanding immediate action and the firing of the emergency manager Darnell Earley who was the EM when the water was switch from the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department to the polluted Flint River; the current leadership of the North African state of Tunisia is being further exposed for its links to imperialism and their allies in NATO and Saudi Arabia; and the African Union is meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where a myriad of issues require attention including the crises in Burundi, the drought in Africa, the migrant problem in the Mediterranean among other issues.

In the second hour we will continue our monthlong tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. examining the Memphis Sanitation workers strike of 1968, the final campaign of the Civil Rights and peace activist.

Also just this last past week marked the 40th anniversary of the transition of Paul Leroy Robeson, the Pan-Africanist and Communist artist, social scientist and organizer. We look at the life and legacy of Paul Robeson in the final hour of the program.
