EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin discusses a decision by a Staten Island Grand Jury not to indict the police officer that put black man, Eric Garner, in a chokehold and caused his death. RT Correspondent, Paul Scott, then reports from Israel about the decision by France’s lower house of parliament to recognize Palestine. Abby then speaks with Kambale Musavuli, Spokesperson for Friends of the Congo, about the use of cobalt in predator drones and how they are connected to the conflict in the Congo which has killed millions of people. Abby then talks about the Supreme Court case, Young v. UPS, which may have vast ramifications for pregnant mothers in the workplace. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Amnesty International Co-Chair, Simon Billenness, about the 30th anniversary of the Bhopal gas leak, the worst industrial accident in the world that killed an estimated 22-thousand people and injured nearly 600,000 and why Dow Chemical refuses to offer a settlement for the tens of thousands still affected.
