Parents of Saheed Vassell, Shot Dead by NYPD, Demand the Release of All Surveillance Video

Daglige TV-nyheter - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 13:00
We continue our conversation with the parents of Saheed Vassell, who are calling for justice after New York police officers responding to a 911 call shot dead their son, an unarmed, mentally troubled African-American man, on a street corner in Brooklyn on April 5. At the time of his death, Vassell was holding a metal pipe that police say they mistook for a gun. The NYPD said four officers—three in plainclothes and one uniformed—fired 10 rounds at Vassell, a Jamaican immigrant. None of the officers who opened fire were wearing body cameras. The Vassell family is now calling for the release of all unedited video from the area leading up to and during the shooting.

Exclusivo: Lula no Democracy Now! (Em Português)

Daglige TV-nyheter - Wed, 04/11/2018 - 13:00
No dia 19 de março o Democracy Now! colocou no ar uma entrevista exclusiva com o ex-presidente brasileiro Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Três semanas depois disso Lula foi preso, o que potencialmente acaba com seus planos de concorrer às eleições deste ano. No ano passado a presidenta afastada Dilma Roussef disse, “O primeiro capítulo do golpe foi o meu impeachment. Mas existe um segundo capítulo, que é não permitir que o Lula seja candidato nas eleições deste ano”. Nós conversamos com Lula sobre as controversas acusações de corrupção contra ele, sobre o recente assassinato da vereadora do Rio de Janeiro, Marielle Franco, sobre o 15° aniversário da invasão norte-americana ao Iraque e outros temas.

Sudanese-American Musician Sinkane in Conversation & Performance

Daglige TV-nyheter - Tue, 04/10/2018 - 13:00
Musician Ahmed Gallab, aka Sinkane, recently stopped by the Democracy Now! studios to perform and talk about making music as a Sudanese-American artist in the age of Trump. The influential music site Pitchfork described Gallab’s music, saying, “If any artist deserves to swerve around a borderless Earth with a real World Passport, it’s the London-born, Sudanese artist Ahmed Gallab. Listen to his catalog under the Sinkane moniker and you’ll hear fragments of sub-Saharan pop, shoegaze, afro-rock, electronica, krautrock, and everything in between—all melded into his own funky blend.” Ahmed Gallab also heads the Atomic Bomb! Band, which pays tribute to the legendary Nigerian funk musician William Onyeabor.

Judge Halts Release of Herman Bell Despite NY's Attempts to Parole More Low-Risk, Elderly Prisoners

Daglige TV-nyheter - Fri, 04/06/2018 - 13:00
We continue to look at how a judge in New York has suspended the release of Herman Bell, a 70-year-old prisoner who has been granted parole after 45 years in prison. Bell was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for the killing of two New York City police officers in 1971. At the time, he was a member of the Black Liberation Army and a former Black Panther. Since then, he has mentored thousands of young men while behind bars and kept a clean disciplinary record. State-mandated tests show he would pose the lowest possible risk if he is allowed to re-enter society. In March, the New York Parole Board granted parole for Bell, noting he had expressed remorse and was likely to lead a “law-abiding life.” State law requires commissioners to consider such factors, but they’ve only recently started to comply. On Wednesday, a state judge agreed to hear a challenge from the widow of one of the officers, who says the board violated procedure. A hearing on the petition is set for April 13, just days before Bell’s earliest originally scheduled release date. We speak with Robert Boyle, lawyer for Herman Bell, who says the board followed the rules. We are also joined by Jose Saldaña, who was incarcerated in New York until he was released by the parole board earlier this year in January, after 38 years inside. He knew Herman Bell and is now an organizer with the group RAPP, Release Aging People from Prison, who has helped push for parole reform.
