Genocide in Africa03/03/10 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Coming up today weâ€™ll hear about the Conflict in the Congo-- in which more than 5 million people have been killed. Itâ€™s one of the worldâ€™s most under-reported stories. Later weâ€™ll talk with some parenting experts on raising children in a peaceful and productive way.
But first some listener comments about yesterdayâ€™s program. All five of the comments were about the last few callers who were urging low income people to go to college and who were defending controversial talk show host Alex Jones.
First up: John Prendergast is cofounder of Enough, the project to end genocide and crimes against humanity at the Center for American Progress. He is the co-author with Don Cheadle of the forthcoming book, â€œThe Enough Moment.â€ Heâ€™ll be speaking tomorrow night at Eckerd College in St, Petersburg. Heâ€™s been raising the alarm about the situations in Congo and Darfur in Africa.
