    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.

    Should The EU Still Exist? Is a United Socialist States of Europe Possible?


    Can The Current EU Imperialist System Dominated by NATO, with a US Controlled Foreign Policy, Be Replaced?


    The hosts of Vanguard Youth Radio Andrea & Al will discuss for this 35 program the European crisis, Podemos in Spain, Syriza in Greece, and how a dissolution of the Eurozone would look like, could it be replaced with a Socialist non imperialist system? Domestically Europe tends to be progressive, but in foreign policy Washington controls the shots, how can this change? Will US bases have to be removed? We hope to have time for callers.
