community-based, non-corporate, participatory media
Rustbelt Radio for April 22, 2013
Welcome to this week's edition of Rustbelt Radio, the Pittsburgh Independent Media Center's bi-weekly review of the news from the grassroots, news overlooked by the corporate media.
Today in celebration of earth day, we bring you a report from statewide grassroots protests demanding that the Pennsylvania DEP put environmental safety above corporate interests, and we bring you a special feature on corporate land-grabbing in Africa, and its implications for food security and environmental health.
Rustbelt Radio is broadcast live from WRCT studios every other Monday at 6 PM on 88.3 FM in Pittsburgh, and the program airs again on WRCT every Tuesday morning at 9AM.
We can also be heard weekly on the following stations:
We're also available on the internet, both on WRCT's live webstream at W-R-C-T dot ORG and for download, stream or podcast from our website at radio dot I-N-D-Y-P-G-H dot org.
We turn now to local stories.
