Climate Justice Forum: Martin Luther King, Jr. on Vietnam War, Government Oppression, & Nonviolent Protest, First Idaho Oil & Gas Waste Well, Potential BNSF Railway Strike 1-19-22


The Wednesday, January 19, 2021, Climate Justice Forum radio program, produced by regional, climate activist collective Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), features Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s April 1967 Beyond Vietnam speech in New York City, and a tribute remembering his strong commitment to equality, peace, and nonviolent direct actions, and resulting government retaliation.  We also share news and reflections on opposition to Idaho’s first oil and gas waste injection well and a potential strike by BNSF Railway workers over a new attendance policy.  Broadcast for ten years this week on progressive, volunteer, community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow, every Wednesday between 1:30 and 3 pm Pacific time, on-air at 90.3 FM and online, the show describes continent-wide, grassroots, frontline resistance to fossil fuel projects, the root causes of climate change, thanks to generous, anonymous listeners who adopted program host Helen Yost as their KRFP DJ.
