Third Paradigm: 3P-002 President Obama, Listen to Your Mother!

This week’s show features Thanksgiving poems blessing the farmworkers, an update on the global food crisis, and the Declarations of the Via Campesina from their 5th annual conference in Maputo. It ends with an open letter to the President-elect called "Obama, Listen to Your Mother!"

Third Paradigm is a twice-weekly think-tank about how to take back control of our cities, farmland and water; of money, production and trade; of media, education and culture, of religion and even of an out- of-control Biblical God. Thursdays, we focus on economics and community sovereignty, and the Sunday edition puts religion in bed with politics. m your host, Tereza Coraggio, broadcasting from Free Radio Santa Cruz.
