As Ebola outbreak rages, vaccine is 97.5% effective, protecting over 90K people

Religious obscurantism and disinformation has directly led to NY's biggest Measles outbreak in decades, with hundreds of children infected. Meanwhile, a recently developed vaccine for Ebola has saved the lives of tens of thousands of people at risk and may well stop this epidemic now and in the future!

Of the 94,000 people "vaccinated, only 71 people fell ill with Ebola. Most of those cases (54 of 71) were in high-risk contacts—those thought to be most likely to come down with the virus based on exposure. Moreover, most of them (56 of 71) occurred within 10 days of being immunized, before the vaccine is thought to induce full protection. Only 15 of the nearly 94,000 people vaccinated became ill after that 10-day period, and all of them survived the infection, which usually has a fatality rate of around 50 percent.”

Vaccines save lives and do not EVER cause autism or other developmental issues. The truth matters!

The latest Ebola outbreak is bad—but it would be far worse without this vaccine.

ICYMI from the Tuesday WBAI Morning Show with Michael G. Haskins and Pamela Brown...

Joel Northam from the Black Autonomy Northeast Regional Committee goes in deep on what a militant black liberation movement could look like, and the need for a praxis of black autonomy to confront white supremacy.

See also: The Black Lives Matter Schism: Towards a Vision for Black Autonomy: www.counterpunch.org/2015/09/25/the…lack-autonomy/

"The movement for Black autonomy does not include coexistence with white supremacist authority in its platform. We understand that the development of a scientific, intersectional revolutionary political theory that is applicable to our specific material conditions in the US, and our development of a praxis that tangibly counters the power of white supremacist institutions that control our lives, is the difference between being victims of genocide or soldiers at war. We understand that the striving for autonomy means provoking violent reactionary resistance to our advances. We accept this. We understand that Black liberation means human liberation, so we act in solidarity with the oppressed. Long live the Black resistance. We have nothing to lose but our chains!"

Kevin Zeese - The Morning Show On WBAI 9 - 8-15

This morning on the WBAI Morning Show Michael G. Haskins and Pamela Brown spoke with Kevin Zeese about the need for universal basic income. Listen to the segment via the link below.

From popularresistance.org:

"This Labor Day weekend rather than looking at the history and current struggles of workers, we look to the future and imagine what will work be like in 2025 or 2050. What will the overall economy look like? What is our vision for an economy that works for the people?"

"There will never be enough jobs in the future so we need a new way to ensure people have money on which to live and to keep the economy going. It is time to figure out how to provide people with a basic income where everyone receives a single basic income to provide for a comfortable living whether they work or not."

Kevin Zeese is co-director of Popular Resistance, at PopularResistance.org and has been working on exposing and stopping the Trans Pacific Partnership for more than three years. In this segment Kevin

WBAI's move to The Commons Brooklyn is a very good thing, but not without a few hiccups. The WBAI Morning Show had a signal interruption today — right in the middle of our Spring Membership Drive. In case you missed it, we have a real premium to offer: Pledge $75 and get a full 3-day ticket to the Left Forum for just about the regular price, and a year's membership to the station. Now is a great time to sign up, renew AND get your ticket to the Left Forum.

PLUS, all WBAI members can run for the local station board, and vote in community elections. This is no small matter. So please take the time right now to sign up. And if you (or a friend) needs a ticket to the Left Forum, this is a great way to do it. Follow the link, sign-up — and please share!

Brazil Crisis Picks Up on Several Fronts

The political crisis in Brazil confronting President Dilma Rousseff in her second term emanates from various fronts, both the left and the right. While accusations of corruption against her government are not new in Brazilian politics, there's growing concerns about the nature of the right-wing opposition to Rousseff. At the same time, as Brazilian social activist Maria Luisa Mendonca of the University of Rio de Janeiro tells Mario in this conversation, Rousseff's failure to fully embrace the popular social movements in Brazil has also led to some backlash from what might have been considered her political base.

"Darkness At Night" The car lights, are on. In my eyes, they shine. A song so divine, it can't be spoken in word rhyme. Eternity found in the letters of the alphabet. Time is numbers in my soup. On my walls. In the halls. Water falls, in a chant, sung, by my Buddha. Coffee and tea cups, full of pouring, prayers to see. Everything for you and me. All the best, is yet to be, Clouds, can be touched and felt. In "The Book Of Life." Which makes giant strides. In its strife. Stolen kisses. While eating wishes.. To the stars and moons above. While we dance naked. Madly in love. Through the planets, in space to another place. A white dove, will fly at its sped pace. Jon Billet's
I am not in New York but I hope people there will be moved to organize a memorial for Robert Grodt an OWS medic and Zuccotti Occupier who died fighting ISIS in Syria. I remember him dancing on the barricades on New Years and honor him for his spirit and bravery. I salute this Freedom Fighter and young soldier who gave his life to free others from brutality, slavery and oppression.
Thank you Michele G Haskins. It was very CooL to hear Brother Robert Night voice on the Radio ✌
