This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From GERMANY- The European Commission is amending its laws on insider trading, making it a criminal offense to rig interest rates. Paul Watson of Greenpeace has skipped bail in Germany where he was awaiting extradition to Costa Rica for interrupting a boat catching sharks. Russia has passed a new law to clamp down on Non-Governmental Organizations.
From RUSSIA- The UN has been discussing the use of US drones in Somalia, where they are interfering with air traffic and violating an arms embargo. A review of the ever-expanding US use of drones in countries around the world.
From CUBA- Homeland Security has announced a new drone squadron for surveillance of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. At least 11 people died in a US drone attack in Pakistan, bringing the total to over 200 dead from such attacks this year.The student movement and teachers union in Chile have called for a new series of demonstrations to demand free public education. Large demonstrations have continued in Mexico over the results of the Presidential election. Russia says that it has not received proposals from the Arab League regarding a power transition plan for Syria.
From JAPAN- Some Arab nations say that they will submit to the UN a transition plan for democracy in Syria- Syria replied that neither Saudi Arabia or Qatar is in a position to discuss democracy. A Japanese government panel has released their findings after investigating the Fukushima nuclear disaster, pointing out conflicts between the government and the plant operators, and the dangerous situation of earthquakes near nuclear power plants.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

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 >
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)
