OUR SHOW TODAY will feature the rise of fascism in the developed world and focus on the question: “is RussiaGate simply a progressive pipe dream?”

OUR FEATURED GUEST is Daniel Kovalik. Dan is Sr. Assoc. General Counsel of the United Steelworkers, AFL-CIO (USW) and teaches International Human Rights at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. He has worked on Alien Tort Claims Act cases against Coca-Cola and Occidental Petroleum – cases arising out of egregious human rights abuses in Colombia. The Christian Science Monitor, referring to his work defending Colombian unionists under threat of assassination, recently described Mr. Kovalik as “one of the most prominent defenders of Colombian workers in the United States.”

Mr. Kovalik received the David W. Mills Mentoring Fellowship from Stanford University School of Law and was the recipient of the Project Censored Award (Sonoma State University) for his article exposing the unprecedented killing of trade unionists in Colombia.
His most recent book is “The Plot to Scapegoat Russia: How the CIA and the Deep State Have Conspired to Vilify Russia."

Music: a mini-tribute to Tom Petty.
