Nestlé pillages Canada, US funds Egypt chaos, Nobel Peace Prize for Bradley Manning
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin calls out Nestlé for its water resale in British Columbia while not paying a cent for its extraction. With a mounting death toll in Egypt, Abby talks to Brian Becker, national coordinator with the ANSWER Coalition about the roots of the violence, and how US tax dollars continue to fund the Egyptian military despite hollow condemnations from the White House. Abby then talks to Norman Solomon, co-founder of RootsAction.org, about the petition to award the Nobel Peace Prize to WikiLeaks whistleblower Bradley Manning. Abby wraps up the show with a heartfelt plea about Einstein’s ‘Circle of Compassion’ by reflecting on how to balance personal stability with the plight of humanity by establishing a sense of global empathy.
