WASHINGTON, DC, the belly of the beast of international military and corporate power, is also a place of activism. It is where we come to speak truth to power in the streets, halls and assemblies of power. But you wouldn’t know about this activism based on what is covered in the corporate media. Even so-called progressive cable news outlets tend to focus almost solely on the jockeying of electoral politics.

“On the Ground,” which premiered on May Day, May 1, 2014, counters this trend by going into the streets and covering grassroots struggles for social justice and human rights. The award-winning weekly hour hosted by Esther Iverem includes coverage of local, national and international issues, with a special emphasis on militarization and war, the police state, the corporate state, environmental justice and the left edge of culture and media.

The show airs Fridays 10-11am EST on WPFW Pacifica Radio, in the Washington, D.C. area  In addition, “On the Ground” is streamed live on wpfwfm.org and distributed by Pacifica to WBAI in New York City, WRFG in Atlanta, Pacifica affiliates around the U.S. and on a podcast.  We also maintain our show website, www.onthegroundshow.org, and social media accounts. 

But all this work is done on a volunteer basis with, predictably, one night each week of no sleep. While we are working to secure non-profit status, we appreciate the support of listeners and sustainers right now who understand the serious threat to free speech, freedom of the press and voices of dissent.
