U.S. policies in the Americas — militarism, economic warfare, political subversion and the denial of national sovereignty — have intensified and are becoming even more reckless. It is important that anti-war and anti-imperialist forces in the Americas remain especially vigilant. This webinar will highlight the popular struggles being waged for national liberation and the efforts being made by the U.S. imperialism and other colonial powers to subvert those efforts.

There are 2 versions of this webinar on the R4A server. Both are the full webinar (01:05:07), lightly edited for pacing and content, mostly removal of "um, uh, you know" and false starts. I didn't add my own intro/outro to either version.

Version 1: A -24 LUFS Mp3 optimized for RADIO PLAY.

Version 2: A -19 LUFS Mp3 optimized for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE. Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it takes up less space.

You can also download these files plus (much larger) .wav files for highest quality at this link:!AgR3-KWytgTzgvs8HrL0ZM3VPNtTtQ?e=NEnaIB

Note to Radio Station Personnel - Please make note of this link:!AgR3-KWytgTzgZw_aOI2oDkhLhlrkw?e=fPuqpV
You can use it to download all or part of the R4A Essential Dissent archive (in at least .wav format) via my OneDrive account, and I plan to continue to post new episodes to that account even if R4A at some point becomes non-functional.
