Greek Anti-Austerity Movement Finds Political Voice in Syriza Party
Interview with Joanne Landy, co-director of the Campaign for Peace and Democracy, conducted by Scott Harris
The eurozone crisis continues, with Spain recently paying the second highest interest rate to support its debt since the founding of the euro currency – with the prospect that Madrid will need an emergency cash infusion soon to avoid crashing. The trouble in Spain comes as the Greek economy, the focus of multiple previous bailout and austerity plans, shrinking 6.9 percent last year, with a further contraction of 6.7 percent predicted for 2012.

Supreme Court Ruling Bars Mandatory Life Sentences for Juveniles
Interview with Marc Mauer, executive director of The Sentencing Project, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
In another important ruling before its summer adjournment, the Supreme Court voted 5 to 4 that imposing mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole for juveniles convicted of murder is unconstitutional. However, under the ruling, judges can still sentence juveniles to life without parole, but only on a case-by-case basis. The high court had abolished the death penalty for juveniles in 2005 and in 2010 had eliminated life without parole for juveniles for crimes not involving homicide.

Egyptian Military Consolidates Power as Muslim Brotherhood Claims Presidency
Interview with Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism project at the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris
As Egyptians went to the polls in the second and final round of the nation’s first free election for president on June 16 and 17, the military announced a series of decrees which crushed the hope that was born in last year’s democratic revolution. Although millions of Egyptians placed their trust in the military for their role in ousting Hosni Mubarak after decades of one-party rule, it’s now the generals who are clearly blocking a transition to democracy.

Syria's Uprising Descends into Civil War
Interview with Chris Toensing, editor of Middle East Report, conducted by Scott Harris
As Syria enters its 16th month of a popular uprising which has killed an estimated 10,000 people, reports of civilian massacres mark an escalation of violence some observers believe has now developed into a civil war. A U.N. report found that 108 civilians were killed, including 49 children and 34 women, in an attack that began on May 25 in the village of Houla, northwest of the city of Homs. Another massacre on June 6 that killed 49 was reported in the town of Qubeir, also near Homs. Human rights groups assert that the heavy bombardment of population centers in opposition strongholds continue across Syria.

Women Against Mountain Top Removal Coal Mining Shave their Heads in Protest
Interview with Marilyn Mullens, Women Unite to End Mountaintop Removal , conducted by Melinda Tuhus
 
West Virginia is one of the nation’s biggest coal producing states. Coal is transported from the southern Appalachian coal fields by truck, barge and rail, and is often cleaned on site before being shipped to fuel the nation's power plants. But both the production and treatment of coal produce major health risks for local residents.

Austerity Policies Fuel Eurozone Crisis, Growing Public Resistance
Interview with Richard Wolff, professor of economics at New School University, conducted by Scott Harris
 
As Europe searches for a continent-wide solution for its gathering debt crisis, the United States economy is feeling the effects of the recession across the Atlantic. President Obama recently blamed Europe’s economic difficulties, in part, for the recent disappointing jobs report in the U.S. The European Union, comprised of 17 nations using the euro currency and 10 that don’t, is a larger economic bloc than either the U.S. or China.
