Phil interviews Jordi Palou-Loverdos, a spokesperson for the International Forum for Truth and Justice in Africa. Palou-Loverdos talks about the case just launched in the Spanish courts against the current government of Rwanda, the FDR, and its leader Paul Kagame. The Forum charges Kagame and the FDR with the murder of 11 missionaries and medical workers, 9 of them Spanish. As well, crimes allegedly committed by General Kagame and his army, the Rwandan Patriotic Army, have resulted in the death of more than 5 million people in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (ex-Zaire). "Our case is not against the Tutsi people, but the leaders of the FDR, who are directly responsible for the murders of the Spaniards, but we also want to show that bosses of multinational companies involved in the local gold and diamond mining industries must share the blame for these war crimes... We have proof that the FDR was responsible for the murders of all the Spaniards.” Palou-Loverdos also mentioned Canadians who are among the victims of the murders.

Phil and Phil Conlon also talked about the current situation in Sudan.

Fred Jerome, Dave Zirin,

Fred Jerome is the author of "The Einstein File", an acclaimed book about J. Edgar Hoover's harassment and persecution of Albert Einstein. Phil talks to Jerome about his forthcoming book: "Einstein on Race and Racism". This book explores a dimension of Einstein that has not been mentioned in over one hundred biographies - his outspoken activism against US racism, and friendship with African American leaders like Paul Robeson and W.E.B. DuBois. Einstein, who called racism "America's worst disease", was a member of the "American Crusade to End Lynching" that organized a march on Washington in December 1946.

Phil interviews Dave Zirin, author of the recent column "A Miserable Super Sunday". Zirin talks about the Super Bowl being used "to sell a fiction that US troops are fighting for freedom, when they're fighting for oil and empire". They also discuss African American quarterbacks in the NFL - "progress has been made, but not due to the graces of NFL management ... every owner of an NFL team is a caucasian male, or the widow of one - it's the ultimate old boys network".
