 Executive director of the Global Justice Ecology Project, which just released the report "Green Shock Doctrine" and runs the climate-connections.org blog, Peterman said today: "Yesterday's march brought together a diverse mix of constituencies from anti-capitalists to Indigenous Peoples to representatives from communities impacted by climate change both in the U.S. and around the world. Each had their own set of demands, but the overarching theme was the need to build power from the grassroots and stop relying on governments and the UN to do this for us. Today hundreds to possibly a few thousand of these folks will be taking part in the Flood Wall Street direct action to bring attention to the real culprits of climate change, and to expose the corporate capture of the UN."

Guest 1: David Bacon is author of The Right to Stay Home and three other books on immigration. He is a labor and immigrant rights activist, and part of the DignityCampaign.org. He said today: "President Obama's decision to delay lifting the threat of deportation from many people is a retreat that will result in more deportations, detentions and firings of people who need equality, legal status and human rights. 

In the name of protecting Democrats in the midterm election, his decision will instead hurt those families who have been some of his greatest supporters. It does nothing to move forward to solve the problems of migration. More people will come to the U.S. tomorrow, driven by poverty and repression, made worse by our pro-corporate trade agreements and foreign intervention. Beefing up enforcement simply criminalizes them, while the continuation of pro-business guest worker programs provides a blatant subsidy for corporations who want to keep wages down and unions weak. We need pro-immigrant and pro-worker immigration reform, not more delays, draconian enforcement and corporate labor schemes.”   

Guest 2: Dr. Helen Caldicott - the Mother of the Anti-Nuclear movement and Author of multiple books.  The Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown disaster “is not over and will never end,” warns Dr. Helen Caldicott, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and holder of 21 honorary doctorate degrees.  “Radioactive fallout which remains toxic for hundreds to thousands of years covers large areas of Japan and will never be ‘cleaned up,'” asserts Dr. Caldicott, a medical doctor who has been showered with honors and awards for her long-time campaign against the dangers of nuclear power production and nuclear war.    

Guest 3:  Judith Vary Baker - after 50 years, the girlfriend of Kennedy Assassin, Lee Harver Oswald, comes out of hiding.   She tells alls in this brief interview.
