June 23, 2010 – Segment 1

We’re in Detroit covering the awe-inspiring gathering of 15,000 progressive activists, organizers, and scholars that is the 2010 U.S. Social Forum.  To give you a taste of the gathering, we start off today’s show with highlights from yesterday’s opening march.

Then, an interview with Janet Redman from the Institute of Policy Studies about how climate change and economics tie into the groundswell of progressive activism around the world.
