    Russian Jets Withdraw From Syria (72)

    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker talks to writer and activist Dr. Tim Anderson about Russia's announcement that it will begin withdrawing its forces from Syria today after President Putin said the objectives of its operation had been achieved.

    How did Russia’s intervention in the war affect the fight against Daesh, Al Qaeda and other armed groups, and what will happen now?

    In the second segment, political commentator Chauncey DeVega gives a first hand account of the shut down of the Donald Trump rally in Chicago last Friday. With primaries taking place today in five states that could have a major impact on who become the presidential nominees, could Donald Trump more or less seal the Republican nomination?

    Finally, today is the International Day Against Police Brutality. Becker is joined by activists Eugene Puryear and April Goggans to discuss how the Black Lives Matter movement is challenging the powers that be and changing America.
