With JODIE EVANS and TATONKA BRICCA we deal with the government’s attempt to murder JULIAN ASSANGE and LEONARD PELTIER.

JOEL SEGAL introduces the magnificent concept of a VOTING RIGHTS SUMMER in which millions of young people would convene to save our electoral system from the fascist Trump/Bannon blitzkrieg.
