Martin Luther King Jr. would have turned 86 today, we hear his words and we look at protests and other events happening across the country to mark his birthday. Kwazi Nkrumah of the MLK Coalition and the City of Culver City 10th annual King Celebration Chair Wayne Slappy, join us.
For our Behind the Prison Industrial Complex feature we take a look at medical and other neglect of prisoners and prisoner deaths. On January 24th, demonstrators will gather in front of the Santa Cruz Clock Tower in protest. Courtney Hanson and Willow Katz of Sin Barras fill us in.
And, our weekly Earth Watch returns. Dallas Goldtooth of the Indigenous Environmental Network joins us to discuss the recent protests and the ongoing campaigns against the building of the Keystone XL Pipeline and Native American and other grassroots efforts to prevent its construction.
