Nobel mass murder prize, NDAA, Europe riots, CISPA returns?
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin salutes Matt Heineman as today’s hero for removing politics from the healthcare debate in America with his documentary ‘Escape Fire.’ Abby then calls out Michigan Representative Mike Rogers for attempting to bring back a CISPA-esque piece of cyber-legislation that is a clear example of state surveillance overreaching to profit the telecom industry. Abby then talks to the host of RT’s ‘Capital Account,’ Lauren Lyster, about austerity protests in Greece and across Europe. Abby also speaks with an activist and plantiff in the case against the NDAA’s indefinite detention provision, Alexa Obrien, about her personal experience fighting the government’s unlawful detention policies. BTS wraps up with a look at who Alfred Nobel was, and highlights a few of the most controversial Americans to have received the coveted Nobel Peace prize.
