Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Kathy Kelly & Protest Against Kansas City Food Sharing Ordinance

The June 12, 2014 edition of Tell Somebody begins with a little conversation with three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly who was in Kansas City and surrounding areas for the 2014 events of Trifecta Resista, a Kansas City based coalition of groups supporting Chelsea Manning, imprisoned in Leavenworth Kansas, and opposing nuclear weapons parts production in Kansas City and drone warfare operations at Whiteman AFB.  On Saturday May 31, I caught up with Kelly at the entrance to the Kansas City nuclear weapons parts plant at the Bannister Federal Complex as a bus was loading to take protestors to another gathering at the DeLasalle education center.

The rest of the show covers June 4, 2014 protests against a proposed Kansas City, Missouri ordinance regulating food sharing that is favored by a couple of the bigger homeless shelters and opposed by a number of individuals and organization that feed the homeless.  Audio from the protest near city hall and a conversation with homeless advocate Richard Tripp are included.

Mary Lindsay & David Cobb on Move To Amend & Supporting KKFI

On June 5, 2014, Mary Lindsay of KC MoveToAmend was in the KKFI studio and MoveToAmend  co-founder and spokesperson David Cobb was on the phone to talk about the need to overturn Citizens United, the bizarre legal fiction of corporate personhood and the strange idea that money equals speech.  This was a pledge drive show, so they also related all of that to the need to support KKFI and Tell Somebody.
