Segment 1: "The Laura Flanders Show"
(25 minutes)

This week, Angela Glover Blackwell, executive director of PolicyLink and former Obama advisor, has a long history of using policy for progressive,
radical, change. Blackwell says this is a moment to protect and resist, certainly, but also a time to return to the roots that are our local neighborhoods, our cities, our suburbs and build something better with them. People must make demands of the system if the system is to change, says Blackwell. Plus, an F-Word from Laura on why Putin's alleged crimes are a distraction from his real ones.

 

Segment 2: "Pursuing the Dream: What You Need to Know About DACA, Immigration, and Beyond"
(4 minutes)

In Trump's America, it seems that no one is safe from detention and deportation, even if you have legal grounds to be in the United States. What side of history will you be on? Demand your elected officials defend immigrants and push for permanent protections!
 

Segment 3: "Our Food, Our Future"
(3 minutes)

Our current food system is broken. We must move away from industrial agriculture to ecological agriculture, today.
Ecological farming is a system which has farmers and food-lovers at its heart. It's a system which safeguards biodiversity and diverse and nutritious food on our plates. A system which reduces waste and decreases meat consumption. Increases soil fertility without using chemical fertilizers, and controls pest and weeds without chemical pesticides.

Segment 4: "Greenpeace Exposes Illegal Fishing"
(3.5 minutes)

During joint surveillance between Greenpeace and the Guinean fisheries inspection CNSP, shark fins have been discovered on two Chinese fishing vessels. One of the vessels, as well as a third vessel, also had illegally altered fishing nets on board. The two vessels with shark fins on board have been fined €250,000 each, while the third vessel has been fined €350,000.
The catch of all vessels has been seized by Guinean authorities. Apart from the shark fins, Greenpeace also found numerous carcasses of sharks including
hammerhead sharks, an endangered species, and manta rays on board several vessels.

 

Segment 5: "The Ghosts of Jeju"
(80 minutes)

A shocking documentary about the struggle of the people of Jeju Island, S. Korea. Set in the context of the American presence in Korea after World War II, the film reveals horrible atrocities at the hands of the U.S. Military Government of Korea.
