From CHINA- The Greek government voted for severe austerity measures and the worst street violence yet erupted in Athens. 1000 Egyptians have been injured in protests against the new government. Brown University issued a "Costs of War" report that American citizens have spent over 4 trillion dollars on wars over the past decade. Israel has erected the first solar power field in the Middle East.

From CUBA- Students in Chile protesting educational fees have been forced off campus by riot police. Bolivian President Morales wants to reestablish diplomatic relations with the US. The Pentagon is planning to send weapons to Uganda and Burundi to battle Islamic militants in Somalia. Libya has rejected the warrant issued by the International Criminal Court for the arrest of Gaddafi. Amnesty International doubts some of the claims of atrocities by forces loyal to Gaddafi.
From RUSSIA- As the warrant for Gaddafi was being rejected, the Libyan government proposed a nationwide referendum to decide whether he should stay or go.

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.
This program will be aired on Friday evening at 6:30pm (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)
