This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From SPAIN- The Spanish economy weakens while the government hopes to put off a Greek style bail-out. 18 Afghani civilians were killed by a US led airstrike, which NATO denies, while US Defense Secretary Panetta backs the use of drones in Pakistan "to defend ourselves." 5 million Brazilian farmers are locked in a lawsuit with Monsanto over royalties for GMO seeds. Syria expelled ambassadors from several Western states in retaliation, while China and Russia urge the continuation of the UN peace plan.
From CUBA- The BBC apologized for running a photo it claimed was from a massacre in Syria, when it was a 9 year old photo from Iraq. Protests over the trial of Mubarak and others in Egypt are gaining momentum. Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Ecuador announced their withdrawal from the InterAmerican Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance, a mutual defense treaty signed in 1947. BP obtained by subpoena thousands of confidential emails from scientists who studied the disastrous Gulf Oil Spill.
From GERMANY- A report on Julian Assange who lost his appeal to prevent extradition to Sweden for questioning. The Russian Parliament adopted a bill providing for huge fines against individuals involved in unauthorized protests.
From RUSSIA- Cyber attacks are clearly the latest form of warfare, with the Obama administrations's involvement becoming clear last week. This report suggests creating international agreements on these attacks, as there are for nuclear weapons, land mines, and chemical weapons.
From JAPAN- Israel's Defense Minister has admitted that his country is carrying out cyber attacks. There is evidence that Japan's nuclear agency bowed to pressure from energy companies when drafting safety standards 20 years ago. A solar powered plane flew for 19 hours, going from Spain to Morocco. The government of Osaka Japan has banned its employees from getting tattoos.

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)
