Music: Ballake Sissoko with "Improvisation 1," John Trudell with "It Is What It Is," Buffy St. Marie with "No No Keshagesh."
Reads New Year Prayer by David Whyte and New Year's Resolution by Philip Appleman. Describes how Peru's President Garcia came to power, and its uncanny parallel in the US. Quotes from an Iowa farmer who uses Peru's earthquake to promote the FTA, and shows how subsidized US corn has undermined food security. Cites evidence from "information terrorists" in Peru about the economic impact on rural communities and depletion of water in the aquifers. Follows the USAID project of Peruvian asparagus and its impact on agro-export workers there and asparagus farmers in California, Washington, and Minnesota here. Questions whether we should have free trade between neighbors rather than nations, and if these are really Subsidized Investor-Corporate Kleptocracy, or SICK.
