On this week’s Global Research News Hour, the last regular program of 2015, we go over some of the major under-reported stories of the year.

We speak with John Ahniwanika Schertow, founder and editor of the on-line magazine Intercontinentalcry.org about the major stories affecting the world’s Indigenous peoples and why even progressive alternative media often fail to report on them.
