LUMPENPROLETARIAT—Are you bilingual? Are you a polyglot? Is Spanish one of the languages you speak, or are interested in learning? If so, then Radio Bilingüe, a free speech bilingual radio network broadcast across California, the American Southwest, and beyond, may be beneficial and/or of interest to you. As a Chicano who grew up on lowrider oldies, many of us appreciate the oldies show. Then there is some nice mariachi and other traditional classics in the morning commute. Plus, there is also some nice talk shows, including in the Spanish language. For example, since Democracy Now! has begun producing a Spanish language version of their broadcasts, Radio Bilingüe airs Democracy Now! en español. Another talk show is Línea Abierta, which is the first—and only—national live talk and call-in programme in public broadcasting interconnecting Spanish-speaking audiences and newsmakers throughout the USA and Mexico. 
Today’s broadcast of Línea Abierta investigated wanton killings of civilians by México’s local, state, and federal police. Mass graves have been found, including in the Mexican state of Morelos; and experts are arguing that state complicity goes up to the highest ranks of government. Listen (and/or download) here. 
LÍNEA ABIERTA—[20 JUN 2016] State-Sanctioned Mass Grave?
Mexican authorities began exhuming more than 100 bodies found in an illegal mass grave in Morelos, a state that’s among the hardest hit by drug-related violence. The dumping site was under the supervision of the state attorney general office. Advocates of the victims call this a state crime.
Guests: Javier Sicilia, Writer, Peace Activist, Cuernavaca, MX; Juan Villoro, Writer, Journalist, Cuernavaca, MX; Dr. Jesús Alejandro Vera, President, Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos; María Concepción Hernández Hernández, mother of Oliver Wenceslao Navarrete Hernández, case that triggered the exhumations; Guillermina Sotelo Castañeda, Mother of César Iván González, who disappeared in Guerrero.
