Latin American economics, Kent State massacre, Syria media war of words

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks to HUE Global strategist Jamila Aisha Brown about Obama’s recent visit to Latin America, and about how economic growth in the region is shifting the dynamic between industrialized nations and the global South. Abby then talks to Laurel Krause, co-founder of the Kent State Truth Tribunal, about the Kent State massacre cover-up 43 years later and how the UN Human Rights Council said it will be looking into the US government’s actions on that day. BTS wraps up the show with a look at the conflicting reports about chemical weapons being used in Syria, news of Israeli airstrikes in Damascus, and the importance of taking corporate news on this issue with a grain of salt.
