This week's show features stories from the Spanish National Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and China Radio International.
From SPAIN- Amnesty International reports that Muslims who display their faith face widespread discrimination in Europe. Protests against rising costs of public transportation are underway in Madrid. The economy in Greece continues to contract. The suicide rates have spiked in countries hardest hit by the recession- Greece, Ireland, and Italy.
From GERMANY- There is a growing backlash in Europe to austerity measures. German Chancellor Merkel defends fiscal discipline and austerity measures. With a runoff election in two weeks in France, French president Sarkozy has begun courting the members of the far-right political parties. The government resigned in the Netherlands over an impasse on economic strategies, leading to a huge drop in the European stock exchange. The EU has called on Israel to reverse the decision on illegal outposts in occupied Palestinian territory.
From CUBA- Spanish protestors are gearing up for the first anniversary of the May 15 protests. The Senate in Argentina is reviewing the final stages of taking over 51% of a Spanish oil company's holding in their country- Spain refused to discuss the situation at recent G20 and IMF summits- an American NGO supports the oil move as well as Argentina's claims on the Malvinas Islands. Venezuelan President denies rumors of his death that were spread by his opponents in the upcoming election.
From JAPAN- Cesium is contaminating fish caught in a river 180km from Fukushima. The last operating nuclear power plant in Japan will be shut down next week. Some towns in Fukushima Prefecture will be too dangerous to live in 10 years from now. Pakistan successfully tested a nuclear capable medium range missile. The finding of a cow with mad-cow disease in California will not affect Japan from importing US beef, due to already established restrictions. Iran's oil industry came under cyberattack this week.
From CHINA- The Buddha's remains are in Hong Kong for a ceremony on his birthday. A Swiss made solar airplane is set for a cross continental flight. Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao gave a speech in Stockholm on the rights of citizens to a clean environment.

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)
