Turmoil in Turkey, China and the TPP, Gaza flotilla raid 3 years later
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin calls out the corporate media for their fixation on the IRS square-dancing story while ignoring the ongoing unrest in Turkey, and RT contributor Lizzie Phelan joins Abby from Istanbul for the latest on the demonstrations. Abby then talks to Kevin Zeese, attorney and co-director of ‘It’s Our Economy,’ about the secrecy surrounding the Trans-Pacific Partnership – regarded as the most secretive trade negotiations in history – the possibility of China joining the TPP, and what can be done to stop Obama from bypassing Congress to push the TPP through. BTS wraps up the show with a look at the Gaza flotilla raid three years later with an interview with retired US Army Colonel Ann Wright, who was on board one of the ships that night. Wright talks about the trial, Israeli immunity from prosecution, and her experience during the attack.
