    Neoliberalism, Imperialism and Urban Development pt. 1

    in History

    In 2004, an agreement was reached between the United States and South Korean governments to move all U.S. forces in the country south of the Han River. This move will relocate the United States Forces Korea from the heart of Seoul to Camp Humphreys, outside the mid-sized city of Pyeongtaek, and to a second major garrison outside of Daegu. 

    The process, scheduled to be completed next year, will consolidate more than 28,000 troops into two regional hubs and will transform Camp Humphreys into the largest U.S. Army garrison in Asia.

    As the population of the garisson increases from 5,000 Soldiers and 7000 civilians, family members and contractors to more than 37,000 by 2016, civic authorities for the city of Pyeongtaek have developed ambitious plans for the expanding city including a major Samsung semiconductor chip plant, the world’s largest fuel cell power plant, an expanded maritime port, a free economic zone and tens of thousands of new housing developments. 

    Bridget K. Martin, a PhD student in Geography at UC Berkley, is researching the links between Militarism and Urbanization in South Korea. 

    In the first of a two-part interview she explains how American imperialism and Korean development, heavily connected since the end of the Korean War, are continuing to work together in new and surprising ways.

    On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the following:


     


    1. This past Monday was Martin Luther King Day. We remember the contributions of King. As we recall King's anti-militarism and anti-imperialism, his class consciousness, and commitment to democratic socialism and fighting racism, the contrast with Malcolm D's defensivdistorter as opposed to King's pacifist strategy are often debated.


    2. Author/Activist Paul Street wrote an article titled, "Race Without Class: the “Bougie” Sensibility of Ta-Nehisi Coates." We'll discuss this and more.


    3.The Iran nuclear deal, which was completed last week, trigering the end of sanctions.


    4.The UK's accusation that Putin ordered the assassination of a former Russian agent living in London.


     


    Plus, Dan Welch, activist and creator of The Greenhouse School, may join us to discuss his perdiction that Bernie Sanders may win the presidency. All this,plus your calls.

    in Politics Progressive

    Join us tonight, Friday, Jan. 7, 2016, at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The Election Boycott Advocates have a lot to discuss in the second week of the new year. Below is a rundown of topics we will discuss.


    1. Obama's crocodile tears over Newtown and the contrast with his murder of more than 150 children in drone strikes in Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, and bombings in Syria!


    2.The OPUS-CIA-VATICAN-NAZI connections! Our frequent guest, member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement, is suing the CIA over this matter.


    3. Bernie Sanders' imperialism. A recent article by Shamus Cooke of Counterpunch highlights how Bernie Sanders is content with U.S. imperialism and how this affects the working class here and abroad.


    4. A few months ago, Les Leopold was on the show to discuss his new book Runaway Inequality. We will discuss CEO vs worker pay and how it is widely condemned; the lack of upwards mobility and how it is perceived between younger and older Americans, and just how well workers have it in other countries compared to the US.


    5. The armed right-wing militia seizing federal land in Oregon. What are the implications of this? If these were black protestors, would the response from the state be different?
