Beyond Extreme Energy (BXE) activists have been fasting since Labor Day in an effort to get the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to stop rubber stamping requests for gas pipeline permits. The hunger strikers are a dedicated group of people, ages 20 - 70+, that has tried just about everything else, including more than 100 arrests, to get FERC employees to do the right thing for people, wildlife and the environment that suffer with each new permit.
Talkupy will go live via telephone with the hunger strikers with the help of past show guest Jimmy Betts, who is also fasting, at 2 pm ET Friday, Sept. 18.

Are you willing to put your life on the line for what you believe? Twelve advocates of supporting good neighborhood public schools have certainly done so. The Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, wants to close Dyett public school, strategically located in the Hyde Park area bordering the Bronzeville community, forcing families to have to travel miles away from home to reach a nearby public school. In Chicago, traveling to outside neighborhoods could be fatal, given the unchecked gang violence that cost so many lives last school year. The bottom line issue is always money. The Dyett High school building would serve those well who want to include it in a real estate deal as the city negotiates space in Hyde Park for the new Presidential library. And as for the safety and education of the children? The city has chosen to ignore an excellent plan for the reopening Dyett as a Dyett Global Leadership and Green Technology School. Mr. Jitu Brown and Dr. Ayesha Wade Bey join us to give an update on the hunger strike.
Your Host BadGirl PollyAnna LA Times: ‘California prison officials say 30,000 inmates refuse meals’ HUNGER STRIKE BY CALIFORNIA INMATES Once the state tallies the official number of participants, the hunger strike could become the largest in state history. A similar hunger strike over several weeks in 2011 had about 6,000 participants at its official peak, corrections officials said, and a strike that fall had about 4,200.

A mother,Cindi Fisher, has been denied access to her son by hospital officials. Cindi Fisher has fought for years for her son, who has experienced forced psychiatric drugging and other human rights violations in the State of Washington. On Monday January 28, 2013 Cindi Fisher had decided to go on a hunger strike in civil protest of her son's treatment, and denial of face-to-face communication with her son. Western State Hospital has caused a forced separation and is preventing her from seeing her son. On Day 13 of her hunger strike, Cindi Fisher reports that she has lost weight from a beginning weight of 175 pounds down to 164 1/2 pounds. Cindi Fisher concluded her hunger strike on 2/6/13 when she reached 158 pounds and began to eat again. She, however, reports that her resolve, to continue to demonstrate for justice for her son, is unwavering.
In response to her frustration to have officials acknowledge the harm the system was doing to her son, Cindi Fisher started a non-profit organization called Movement Of Mothers Standing-up-together or MOMS. MOMS advocates for trauma informed, psycho-social care with no or low dose psychiatric medications, in a non-coercive setting. She has held protest fasts before on her son's behalf. These MOMS have fasted over 100 days in one year and walked a 100 miles to have their voices and concerns amplified. Cindi Fisher has a website dedicated to her son's case. http://www.mentalhealthrightsyes.org/
Hosts Sue Caumont and Jeff Beller welcome Elliot Adams a veteran, former Mayor, and former President of Veterans for Peace who has been on a hunger strike for nearly two months in protest to the US governments operation of Guantanamo Bay were the US says it is holding "enemy combatants". Elliot has taken to internet radio to get his message out since the mainstream media has neglected to cover the strike. Elliot explains why he feels they wont touch it.
Listen live Fridays at 8:00 PM ET only on Going Beyond Radio.
This from Mr. Adams:
Guantanamo is wrong morally and by all religions, by international law and by US law. It violates the Magna Carta, Common Law (the basis of our law), the United Nations Charter, the Nuremberg Principles, the Convention Against Torture, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It also is an affront to what our founding fathers set out in the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the dream and image of America as a place of justice, the things I grew up being told the US flag stood for, and even national security. How have we gotten to this low point?

Woman passed over for a job due to inappropriate attire. Judgement is one of those skills you need to land a job, that includes in your attire & how you handle criticism. The only way this woman is going to land a job now is by getting a face transplant after posting a profanity-laced rant on social media.

Ben Carson says he and Rev. Al Sharpton have the same goal for America. Ben is either naive and trying to give Sharpton the benefit of the doubt or completely oblivious. Either way, he's not equipped to be president!
Only in California would legislators declare a state of emergency after dumping perfectly good, clean water into the ocean in order to save an un-endangered bait fish! We should have been capturing that water for years. Now we have a man-made dust bowl, courtesy of the California Legislature. Genius!
Hr3 Ohio public school hosts “Covered Girl Challenge” asks students to wear a hijab for a day. Do you think it's ok? Do you think they'll also challenge students to wear a yarmulke? A cross? A priest's robe? A Sikh dastaar? Doubtful.

The Wrath of Brotherhood
After learning of his sister’s death at the hands of pirates, successful merchant Captain Roy Toppings sails to the Caribbean on a misguided mission of vengeance against the man who failed to protect her: her Spanish widower, Pablo Francisco.
In the climate of the Restoration-era Caribbean colonies, where scheming and stealth could yield a prize as readily as boldness and firepower, Roy's vendetta lands him and his small but talented privateer crew in the middle of political intrigue and a deadly invasion in the West Indies as the nations of Europe struggle to consolidate power in anticipation of new monarchs in England and France.
When Spain prepares a strike that could jeopardize all other commercial interests in the Caribbean, Roy must risk losing his chance at vengeance to fight for his nation and his fellow Brethren of the Coast.
