Thousands of refugees from Myanmar are stranded in boats near Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, after being denied access to land. In the Mediterranean, German naval ships are rescuing refugees and then sinking the boats. The EU has decided to use military force against those transporting asylum seekers in the Mediterranean. The Hungarian Prime Minister described new EU plans to create asylum quotas for each country as "absurd, bordering on insanity." There is a Climate Change conference in Berlin this week.
     From CUBA-  Citizens in Ecuador set a new world record by planting almost 650,000 trees in a single day- the goal was to involve everyone in protecting the environment. There is an intense drought occurring in Cuba, affecting 1 million people. Agricultural workers in Baja California, Mexico are making less than $15 US for 12 hour shifts. In Michoacan Mexico the police are being investigated in the assassination of a mayoral candidate. Tens of thousands of Guatemalans are protesting in the streets, demanding that the President resign in the midst of a corruption scandal that has seen 22 government leaders arrested for corruption. Violence erupted in Jerusalem between Israelis and Palestinians on Sunday. New charges of crimes committed by Israeli soldiers against Palestinians in April.

China has suspended fishing in the South China Sea during the hot season to protect resources, and Vietnam is protesting the action. The Chinese Premier is visiting South America where he signed an agreement with Brazil on climate protection and renewable energy. New energy efficient cars and ships in China will be exempted from vehicle taxes. There are currently 23 working nuclear power plants in China, with another 29 being built or planned.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -
I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at

  All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)
