The Occupy Movement Prepares for Spring Actions as 400 Arrested in Oakland
Interview with Sandy Nurse, a member of Occupy Wall Street, NYC, conducted by Scott Harris
 
As police suppression of the Occupy Wall Street movement proceeded with evictions of activists from public spaces over the past several months, the movement has continued organizing protests highlighting the issues of economic inequality, while targeting big banks and attempting to stop home foreclosures. In some cases, Occupy activists have employed direct action to reclaim public space lost, as happened in December when an unsuccessful effort was launched to occupy Duarte Square in New York City, resulting in some 50 arrests.

Obama Ruling on Access to Birth Control Provokes Attack from GOP and Religious Right
Interview with Meghan Smith, domestic program associate at Catholics for Choice, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
 
In late January, the Obama administration issued a ruling that religious institutions serving the public, such as schools and hospitals, must provide their employees with access to birth control through employee health plans with no deductibles or co-pays, as part of the President’s Affordable Care Act health reform law. However, the ruling provides an exemption for employees of churches and other houses of worship, and allows these institutions an extra year to comply.

Cyber Activists Rise up to Derail Proposed Federal Anti-Piracy Bills
Interview with Josh Levy, Internet campaign director with the media reform group Free Press, conducted by Scott Harris
 
With the backing of Hollywood movie studios, book publishers and the music industry, the U.S. Senate’s proposed “Protect Intellectual Property Act” and House legislation dubbed "Stop Online Piracy Act,” looked like they were headed for easy passage. But the legislation designed to prevent the piracy of U.S. movies, music and software, confronted an effective grassroots campaign that viewed the legislation as a mortal threat to creativity, innovation and freedom of expression on the Internet.

Study Finds Surface and Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining Degrades Water Quality
Interview with Emily Bernhardt, an associate professor of biology at Duke University, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
 
In December, an article appeared in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that exposes the impact of surface and mountaintop removal coal mining on water quality downstream of mining sites. The study reveals that the problem persists many years after reclamation, indicating current environmental protection strategies are not addressing the problem. The findings show a clear connection between the amount of mining in a watershed area and the impact on water quality downstream.

Breaking Campaign Pledge, Obama Signs Indefinite Detention into Law
Interview with Shahid Buttar, executive director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, conducted by Scott Harris
 
On the last day of 2011, President Obama signed the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, which mandates that all accused terrorists be indefinitely imprisoned in military rather than in the civilian court system. But most alarmingly, the measure also empowers the current, and all future presidents, to indefinitely imprison U.S. citizens and non-citizens suspected of engaging in terrorism, without charge or trial.
