In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by David Swanson, activist, journalist, radio host, Executive Director of World Beyond War and author of the book "Leaving World War II Behind" to discuss the ballooning war budgets passed by Congress and why they continue to grow even after the supposed end of wars the US is directly involved in, what it would take from Democrats to actually make good on promises to challenge the war budget and why they don’t do that, and how the latest war budgets are building up US capacities to wage war on Russia and China and how the media is manufacturing consent for those wars.
In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Libre X Sankara, poet, cultural worker,educator and organizer with the Troika Kollective to discuss the anniversary of the Ponce massacre in Puerto Rico, where police killed 19 nationalists who were participating in a peaceful march commemorating the ending of slavery in Puerto Rico and against the imprisonment of Nationalist leader Pedro Albizu Campos, how Campos internationalized the struggle for Puerto Rican independence and why the US imprisoned him for doing that, and how this massacre and the imprisonment of Campos expose how the US regards the idea of Puerto Rican independence.
