TONIGHT AT 9PM if you still have power, we hope your curled up around the radio listening to this program because we have so much to bring you in the next two hours! First on Eyes Open w/ Justin Jacoby Smith he brings us news from Spain, where the mayor of a small village has been leading raids on supermarkets and giving the food to the poor. Following that, the War On Information takes us to the midwest where Amanda Bleep checks in with Occupy Omaha during their action in solidarity with the global trapwire protests. I'll be following her giving you new developments in the movements against Stop & Frisk procedures in NY, and border patrol violence/drone warfare, asking when is it ok to kill kids? Robert Stephens takes the drone conversations a little deeper on Like It Is where he critiques the political narrative around the subject. In the second hour we discuss the value of cooperatives with Zachari Curtis farmer/ founder of the D.C. Black Growers Network and Healthy Food For All, as well as Ajowa Ifateyo writer for the site Grassroots Economic Organizing who has visited coops both locally and internationally, as we talk about their upcoming conference. Rounding out the show we get into the arts with Justin taking a look at resistance through the visual art of the Black Panthers as well as talk with award-winning documentarian Velcrow Ripper about his new film "Occupy Love". All that and so much more tonight on Voices Of The 99%, tune in!
