Dear Radio Friend,
This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.

From JAPAN- TEPCO, the company that owns and operates the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant, now admits that the waste water they wanted to continue dumping in the Pacific Ocean is much more radioactive than they had admitted. The president of the UN security Council says that sanctions against North Korea should not be allowed to affect the general populations well-being. The International Court of Justice has ordered the US to insure that its sanctions on Iran do not affect trade in humanitarian goods. The supreme court of Peru has revoked the medical pardon for former president Fujimori.

From CUBA- In Mexico, the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Olympics was preceded by the government finally acknowledging that the state was criminally responsible for the massacre of hundreds of student protestors on the eve of the games in Mexico City- to this date, no one has ever been convicted for the massacre. Then a Viewpoint on the Brazilian election Sunday between right-wing candidate Bolsanaro and Lula da Silva's replacement Fernando Haddad and several other candidates. Many see this as a crucial moment in Brazilian history, following a political coup that ousted president Dilma Rousseff by Michel Timer and then a court ruling that da Silva cannot run for office while in jail. A runoff election is scheduled for October 28th.

From RUSSIA- On his program called Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi spoke with legendary journalist and filmmaker John Pilger. They discussed the state of propaganda, focusing on what is left out of mainstream media to support government narratives. Pointing to Iran, Syria, Venezuela, and the bank bailouts as examples, Pilger implores citizens to interpret the Newspeak and to seek out alternative media.
