This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and the Voice of Russia.
From JAPAN- French researchers say that the amount of cesium that entered the ocean from the Fukushima nuclear disaster is 20 times higher than the nuclear plant operator claimed. There is evidence that the Fukushima reactors have recently experienced critical states of nuclear fission.
From CHINA- China says that developed nations need to be committed to the Kyoto protocols to have a successful climate conference in South Africa next month. A report on the rate of climate change in the Arctic and the effect resource development could have on the region.
From SPAIN- The Greek Prime Minister called for a referendum on the latest EU bailout, creating a political crisis in Greece and the rest of the world. Protests called "People First, Not Finance" have been staged in advance of the G20 meeting in France.
From CUBA- More on the Peoples Forum being held in Nice, France. The UN General Assembly is reviewing initiatives from a committee studying disarmament. NATO has stopped military action in Libya after 9700 bombing raids. The Russian Foreign Minister said that only the Syrian people can decide the future of their country, and that Libya must not become a model of regime change in other developing countries.
From GERMANY--Following the vote to allow Palestine to join UNESCO, Israel sped up building illegal housing in East Jerusalem and the West Bank and is holding up tax revenues due to the Palestinian Authority. Scotland’s ruling political party wants the country to break away from the U.K.
From RUSSIA- A commentary on President Obama's announcement of a sped up troop withdrawal from Iraq, and an increased troop presence in the Persian Gulf and Kuwait.

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)
