This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and the Voice of Russia.
From SPAIN- A meeting of the Eurozone countries on the debt crisis was cancelled, and Ireland will hold a referendum on the EU fiscal stability treaty. In France the Presidential candidate most likely to unseat Sarkozy said that anyone earning over one million Euros should pay 75% in taxes. Spain's Supreme Court has cleared Judge Garzon from charges resulting from his investigation of Franco era crimes- an earlier conviction on phone-tapping still stands. China has accused the US of "arrogance" in its criticism of China's policy toward Syria.
From CUBA- The EU will continue to ban food imports for another 6 months from 11 prefectures in Japan due to fear of radioactive contamination. Wakame seaweed harvested off the coast of Japan has returned to the market. An independent panel investigated the Fukushima disaster and published very critical findings this week. North Korea says it will suspend uranium enrichment in exchange for food aid. An Egyptian court has begun trying 43 NGO aid workers, including 16 Americans, charging them with illegally distributing funds to political parties, and spying for the CIA.
From JAPAN- The EU will continue to ban food imports for another 6 months from 11 prefectures in Japan due to fear of radioactive contamination. Wakame seaweed harvested off the coast of Japan has returned to the market. An independent panel investigated the Fukushima disaster and published very critical findings this week. North Korea says it will suspend uranium enrichment in exchange for food aid. An Egyptian court has begun trying 43 NGO aid workers, including 16 Americans, charging them with illegally distributing funds to political parties, and spying for the CIA.
From RUSSIA- According to an email liberated by Wikileaks, US prosecutors have drawn up secret charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Prior to the Obama administration the Espionage Act was used only 3 times- it has been used 6 times since Obama took office, mostly to go after people releasing administration secrets rather than dealing with threats to national security.

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://radio.mediageek.net

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
NEW TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < http://www.kzyx.org >
There are several other streams that work better- < http://www.freakradio.org >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PDST)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://radio.indymedia.org/en/podcast?keys=shortwave++

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)

-- "Soviet-style communism failed, not because it was intrinsically evil, but because it was flawed. It allowed too few people to usurp too much power. Twenty-first century market capitalism, American-style, will fail for the same reasons. Both are edifices constructed by human intelligence, undone by human nature."
-- Arundhati Roy
