Written by: IRR News Team

The latest Race & Class radio is now online.

The latest broadcast of Race & Class Radio is a two-part show, featuring contributors to the January 2015 issue, Victoria Brittain and Eddie Bruce-Jones.

Victoria Brittain discusses the legacy of Ken Saro-Wiwa, executed along with the Ogoni Eight in 1995 by the Nigerian state after a protracted struggle against the ecological degradation of his homelands in the Niger Delta by oil corporation Shell. You can listen to the interview here.

Meanwhile, Eddie Bruce-Jones speaks about police brutality against non-white Germans, examining a series of controversial deaths in custody and arguing for the need to identify patterns of institutional racism in Germany. You can listen to the interview here.

Gordon and Elizabeth Robinson for No Alibis, a public affairs radio programme that airs weekly on KCSB 91.9 FM Santa Barbara California from 9-11 am PST and webcasts at www.kcsb.org.
