    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined by journalist Pepe Escobar and Priscilla Chandretti of Brazil's Journalist Union to discuss the reasons behind the protests in the street demanding the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff.

    Is this about corruption as her critics claim or is that a pretext for a political and class struggle?

    The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is holding its conference in Washington, DC this Sunday, but the conference will be met by protests. Becker is joined by author and journalist Max Blumenthal to analyze the influence that AIPAC has on U.S. politics, how powerful the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) has become, and why Bernie Sanders is not attending the conference.

    RT reporter William Whiteman describes his firsthand experience in southeastern Turkey where Kurdish cities have been destroyed by the Turkish military. He filmed the devastation and now RT is launching a petition to the United Nations Human Rights Council to call for a thorough international investigation into the massacres.
