US "at War" with Africa, Fashion Revolution Day, World Bank's Privatizing Water & ReWilding
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Bangladesh, highlighting a day of action called Fashion Revolution Day holding vigils for the victims of the tragedy and raising awareness for the issue. Abby then calls attention to the scope of US military operations in nearly every country in the African continent, in the form of everything from drone bases, surveillance installations and even putting US boots on the ground. Abby then speaks to the national spokesperson for the Friends of Congo, Kambale Musavili, discussing the anniversary of the Rwandan genocide as well as the ongoing conflict that continues to plague the region. Abby then reports on the World Bank's absurd plans to address the global water crisis through privatizing this valuable resource. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Daniel Vitalis a pioneer in the ReWilding Movement, a call to return human beings to a lifestyle that conforms to their biology by forgoing a culture that keeps people separate from nature.
