Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, the LMC speaks with freelance journalist Alexandra Villarreal about how anti-immigrant legislation and poor sanitary conditions in migrant detention centers could put more people at risk of illness.
On this episode, the LMC spends the hour with human rights attorney German Romero from DH Colombia to discuss some of his cases and threats against his life during the course of his work. Cases include the 2005 massacre in San Jose de Apartado, the case of Claudia Julieta Duque, and the 1985 siege of the Palace of Justice. Special thanks to Charlie Roberts from the Colombian Human Rights Committee for interpretation.
Following the usual fear and paranoia from corporate media over Bernie Sander’s comments about Cuba’s education system, the LMC speaks with James Early to set the record straight on what it actually looks like. James Early is the former Smithsonian Institution assistant secretary for education and public service.
