EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin comments on the acquittal of former Republican House Majority Leader, Tom Delay, who was sentenced to three years in jail for money laundering, but was acquitted of all charges by a Texas appeals court. Abby then talks to RT Correspondent Lucy Kafanov, about ongoing unrest in Greece, and the latest demonstrations stemming from the murder of anti-fascist rapper, Killah-P, by an alleged member of the fascist party Golden Dawn. Abby then remarks on the announcement that Bolivian president, Evo Morales, is drafting a lawsuit against Obama at the International Court, highlighting how the US’ relationship with Latin American leaders is deteriorating in light of the NSA leaks and a series of actions taken by the US against South American Leaders that have been characterized as humiliating for the region. BTS wraps up the show with a musical performance with hip hop artist Marcel Cartier, featuring his song ‘Hands Off Syria’ and the original track for Breaking the Set’s season two intro. She interviews Marcel about the corporatization of hip hop and critiques of capitalism.
