On this week’s Project Censored Show, Eleanor Goldfield recently spoke attorney Steven Donziger – the man caught in the crosshairs of one of the largest corporations in the world, Chevron – to discuss updates in his ongoing struggle to demand accountability for the people of the Amazon in Ecuador, and how we can use courts and litigation as a tactic while also understanding that our judicial system exists to uphold the capitalist industrial economy. Next, Eleanor recently spoke with Matilda Bliss and Veronica Coit, two journalists from the Asheville Blade in Asheville, North Carolina, who covered the ongoing violent gentrification and forced removal by police of unhoused people. They are the first journalists to be found guilty for the heinous crime of literally gathering and reporting the news. They discuss their case and the ongoing struggle facing frontline and community journalists who dare to tell the truth and go against the establishment.
