Voices Radio: Anakbayan On U.S War Games In Hawaii, Willie Mays Dedication, and Juneteenth

This week on Voices Radio: Eric Mann and Channing Martinez talk to Misty Pegram of Anakbayan about the Cancel RIMPAC Campaign. The Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercises are the largest joint war exercises in the world with 26 of the U.S’ allies, including Israel. The RIMPAC campaign has led to severe environmental impacts, gender-based violence, and fatter pockets for weapons manufacturers.

Later in the episode, Eric Mann pays tribute to Willie Mays, who passed recently on June 18, 2024. Willie Mays was one of the ‘greatest’ baseball players of all time according to Eric, describing his infectious personality and electrifying performances.

You will also hear a reading of Ishmael Reed’s essay, “Juneteenth: Why Were The Enslaved In Texas?,” published on Counterpunch.

And last but not least, Channing talks about CicLAvia, an event which ‘catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through car-free street events.’
