EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin calls attention to one of the most underreported injustices in the world, the persecution of the Rohingya people in Myanmar (Burma), citing the wave of violence that has displaced 140,000 people and the government’s denial of the crisis, and the almost total media blackout on the issue. Abby then speaks with RT Correspondent Ramon Galindo, about a recent legal petition by environmental groups in California calling for the Federal government to force an end to the practice of offshore fracking, and the dumping of hundreds of millions of gallons of fracking waste in the Ocean every year. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Jeffery Sommers, professor of political economy at the University of Wisconsin discussing Russia’s intervention in Ukraine from a historical perspective and arguing what the likely outcome will be of the crisis.

    Yeah. I’m sure Poland, Lithuania and Latvia see NATO as pointless in the light of recent events. Exiting now would seem like cutting of their own b*lls to spite their p*nises.

    Has Abby Martin ever reported on the repression, imprisonment, and continuing harassment of the Russian art collective (band) Pussy Riot? And if so, what did she have to say about that?
