Welcome back beloved listeners!
This week we discussed an issue particularly relevant for our country correlated to one of our last topics, the TTIP: the environmental movements active in Italy. Talking about the consequences of some international agreements between Italy and the US, we decided to look more closely to the MUOS, the Mobile User Objective System. This project, born as many others thanks to the existence of an agreement between Italy and the US dated 1954 is bringing heavy consequences on the life of the population of Niscemi, a little town in Sicily. However, despite the proven and recognized harmfulness for the health of the citizens living nearby the area designed for the project, the works of MUOS have carried on among the indignation and the protests of Sicilians. We tried thus to recollect the first stages of the fight of Sicilian civil society and with this excuse to recall the history of other environmental movements present in the country and to offer some alternatives. Later on we keep talking about liberal exchange existent treaties by analyzing the consequences for Mexico of the Northern American Free Trade Agreement, highlighting the deep changes that Mexican society went through after the ratification of the Treaty and discussing also the sad issue of femicide.
But in order to close with some laughter we also decided to spread the voice about some useful and funny advice on what you should do before you turn 25 (especially if you already turned 25). Enjoy! Please find the full show here.
