Is freedom of speech really free? What are the political parameters in which the whole notion of ‘freedom of speech’ functions within the US? How has government policy, such as the FBI’s COINTELPRO operations, played a role in the repression of political dissent? What is the history of the struggle of Indigenous First Nation People throughout the Western Hemisphere? How has US foreign policy transformed how the world views America? All the questions and more will be answered and discussed this week on the Your World News Radio Program. This week our featured guest will be Professor Ward Churchill. Our show will air LIVE this Thursday night (June 11, 2009) from 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM Eastern Standard Time.
