Our first guest, Nick Turse, speaks about the largely unseen role US forces are playing in Africa, with a special focus on the civil war in South Sudan. Then Dana Frank and Mark Sullivan discuss the US-backed Honduran government’s program of free-market “model cities” (ZEDEs), in which corporate control will supersede the rights of Honduran citizens.
Nick Turse is the author of “Tomorrow’s Battlefield: US Proxy Wars and Special Ops in Africa.” Dana Frank teaches history at the University of California. Mark Sullivan is an environmental attorney and human rights advocate.
