    Vietnam, Afghanistan, Yemen: What is all this needless death for?

    Vietnam, Afghanistan, Yemen: What is all this needless death for?

    Last week, President Joe Biden announced he will be pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan on Sept. 11, 2021, seemingly ending the longest war in U.S. history. But what does that really mean? What happens to Afghanistan next? How can we possibly make reparations for the destruction we’ve wrought, and will we do anything to address the machinations of a military-industrial complex that continually drives us into more wars around the globe? In the first segment of this week’s “Marc Steiner Show,” we dive into these and other vital questions with Matthew Hoh, disabled Marine combat veteran, senior fellow at the Center for International Policy, and member of the Eisenhower Media Initiative, and Danny Sjursen, retired Army major who served in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, director of the Eisenhower Media Network, and author of multiple books, including “Patriotic Dissent: America in the Age of Endless War.”

    Then, the Saudi-led war and the war-induced famine in Yemen is the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world today—a crisis in which the United States continues to be complicit. In our second segment, Marc speaks with Iman Saleh, one of the Yemeni-Americans with the Yemeni Liberation Movement who began a hunger strike on March 29 to demand an end to the Saudi-led and U.S.-backed blockade of Yemen. As of this publication, Saleh has not eaten for 23 days.

    A small-town hospital goes after its union nurses

    A small-town hospital goes after its union nurses

    On top of the typical stresses, intense work, and long hours common to the profession, nurses working at smaller hospitals in more remote parts of the country face many unique challenges. With fewer staff and 24-7 services, facilities like the two Lehigh Valley Health Network hospitals in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, rely on nurses, nursing assistants, and other staff to perform many jobs simultaneously with little rest. But when nurses begin to leave for better working conditions and the hospital does not replace them, those who remain are put under even more strain, which endangers them and their patients. For workers with Schuylkill Hospital Nurses United, that's just the tip of the iceberg. In this episode, we talk with two Schuylkill County nurses, Brandee Brown-Seigfried and Chrissy Newton, and Seth Goldstein from the Office and Professional Employees International Union, about the day-to-day grind of working in small-town hospitals while also combating union-busting and bad-faith bargaining from management.

    How militarism eats the poor and destroys the planet

    How militarism eats the poor and destroys the planet

    From endless wars and imperialist violence to racist systems of oppression and climate destruction, the battles poor and working people face around the globe are as daunting as they are numerous. What will it take to build a grassroots movement that not only combats these destructive forces, but understands them as fundamentally interconnected? In the first segment of this week’s blockbuster “Marc Steiner Show” (now premiering every Tuesday), we talk about what such a movement can look like with Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign and director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice.

    Then, in our second segment, we talk with Congressman John Sarbanes, U.S. Representative for Maryland's 3rd congressional district, who introduced H.R.1, the For the People Act, in the House of Representatives. Marc and Rep. Sarbanes discuss H.R.1 and what it would do to restore and protect voting rights in the U.S. They also discuss the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021 in the context of the ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin, the police officer who killed George Floyd.

    Did cops RETALIATE against this activist (and did the public defender drop the ball)?
