Detroit fights for water while Nestle extracts it during Drought & Israel targets media

Abby Martin breaks down recent developments in Gaza, including the targeted shooting of Al Jazeera’s office in the violence stricken Gaza Strip. She also comments on the mysterious case of two Americans who have died during Operation Protective Edge while serving in the Israeli Defense Forces, highlighting how their case as foreign nationals fighting for Israel is not unique considering at least 5,500 “lone” soldiers serve in the IDF. Abby then speaks to Makita Taylor, Creative Director for the Detroit Water Brigade, who shares recent updates on the ground as Detroiters rally to keep their water turned on in wake of the Detroit Water and Sewage companies decision to freeze all water shutoffs for 15 days. Next, Abby talks about Nestle’s current practice of pumping water out of areas suffering from severe drought, highlighting the their pumping of an Native American reserve near Palm Springs, California. Abby wraps up the show speaking with Annie Machon, a former M15 officer and whistleblower, to break down Germany’s reaction to recent reports that the US hired spies in the country as well as leaks that reveal GCHQ’s ability to manipulate the web.
