THE FIGHT FOR FOOD
Food prices are skyrocketing. Poor and working people are facing hunger and starvation. From Haiti to Egypt, people across the globe are rebelling against these conditions in mass uprisings and strikes.
The resources exist to feed the world's population -- so why are children in Haiti are living on less than a tablespoon of rice a day? What is behind the food inflation? Join us for a discussion of the causes and real solutions of the global food crisis.
Also! Report from May 1st
A report on International Workers Day and two May 1st actions: the immigrant rights march for amnesty and the ILWU-led march and shutdown of West Coast ports to end the war and defend workers and immigrant rights.
