Mining, Past and Present _ on Project Censored

Coming up every Tuesday and Saturday at 8 am Pacific * 11 am Eastern * 16:00 GMTProject Censored

Eleanor Goldfield is host and producer for this week’s program, which looks at mining — past and present. First a lesson in labor history: how, beginning in 1925, a group of Pennsylvania miners took over coal fields and ran their own mines. Then in the second half of the show, a skeptical look at the promises of “green growth” via lithium technology. But is lithium mining actually any different from other extractive industries in a capitalist world?
Mitch Troutman is an organizer and author; his latest books is “The Bootleg Coal Rebellion: the Pennsylvania Miners Who Seized An Industry.” Jamie Kneen works at Mining Watch Canada (www.miningwatch.ca), an Ottawa-based NGO that campaigns for the rights of communities and workers in places where mining is underway, or proposed.
