On today’s show we’ll hear from Eric Mann, from Los Angeles’ Labor Community Strategy Center, about strategies for effective organizing.

Then we’ll talk to Isabel Garcia, a lawyer who works for the Coalition for Human Rights in Tucson, Arizona, representing immigrant workers in that embattled state.

We’ll also be joined by Frances Fox Piven, a sociologist and political scientist and advocate for the unemployed in the United States.

Then we’ll speak with Patricia Torres, a graduate student in urban planning at UCLA who was involved in the student movements there over the past couple of years.  She is also an advocate for immigrant rights and works with INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence.

Finally, we’ll hear from Derrick Jensen,  one of the most trenchant and radical voices in the contemporary environmental movement.

Listen:


They Know Where the Bodies Are Buried…

Because high-ranking University of California officials know Austerity has its privileges, they want their share of the take.

Below are thirty-six of the most audacious and highest-paid executives in the UC system.

We have questions and we would like to meet them.


Questions:

1. WHO? Who are they?
