After years of racist railroading by Federal prosecutors, a Texas court sentences five Arab-Americans on a combined 69 counts for their charitable work serving Palestinians, we'll speak to one of the defense attorneys whose client was just sentenced to 65 years in prison; also, Dr. Mads Gilbert, who treated and documented victims of US weaponry in Israeli attacks in Gaza talks about the brutal humanitarian situation for hundreds of thousands of internally-displaced Tamil people in Sri Lanka; Catherine Austin Fitts discusses participatory budgeting and financial permaculture on Community Business; plus, JR and the Block Report talks with the editor-in-chief of New York City's largest Black newspaper about the volatile newspaper industry and how it could impact Black media; and the Knight Report.
