On this anniversary of the September 11th Attacks, join us for a discussion about prisoner rights with Cecily McMillan, as she shares her own experience through the American judicial system following her wrongful arrest during the Occupy Wall Street protests.
Cecily McMillan is a 25-year-old graduate student at the New School, union organizer, and Occupy Wall Street activist who was convicted of allegedly assaulting a police officer on March 17, 2012. After two years of censoring evidence and hand-selecting jurors, the prosecution was blatantly favored with overwhelming bias from Judge Ronald Zweibel. In a shocking verdict that stunned outside observers, she was found guilty despite insufficient evidence and Zweibel sentenced McMillan to 90 days in jail at Rikers Island. She was sent directly to jail on May 5 2014, despite having missed no court appointments over two years of hearings and her public insistence on refusing to plea out. During the long period between her initial arrest and the jury trial, Cecily was arrested again by the NYPD on December 7th of 2013 for observing and attempting to video-document the arrests of two young people in the Union Square subway station. McMillan and her supporters denounce the trumped up charges that were intended to undermine her credibility, for which she faces up to a year back on Rikers.

Caleb Maupin will be on tonight's show at 11 PM Eastern. His appearance last week was cut short and BTR had some connectivity issues so we are going to have a do-over. He is an activist, organizer, political analyst and reporter.
Subjects should include... Imperialism, Capitalism, Communism, Socialism, Ukraine, Syria, OWS, Cecily McMillian, The Fight for $15 and a Union, Class Consciousness, the push towards a new Cold War (and hot war), trade deal betwen Russia and China, Petro dollars, NSA and whatever else comes to mind.
I'll ask him about a few organizations he is involved with such as FIST/Fight Imperialism Stand Together, Workers.org/Workers World Party, and the International Action Center/IAC.
We are both now in NYC and there is a lot going on in the Social Justice arena, but that doesn't mean YOU can't get involved in creating a better world in your own city. Listening to what others are doing is always helpful, in my view, so please tune in at 11 PM Eastern - and - share this program with your social networks.

Cicely McMillan faces 7 years in prison for reacting to a plain clothered police officer's breast grab (rough enough to leave a hand imprint) from behind. Allegedly, the officer did not identify himself as law enforcement. The "Masters of the Universe" on Wall Street that brought on a financial meltdown of global, garantuous proportions, the catalyst of the Occupy Movement remain uncharged and in fact were financially rewarded while homeowners lost their homes.
Across the country, 2,500 miles removed from New York City, Cliven Bundy and the self-described Nevada Militia hold an armed standoff with federal officials over upaid grazing fees. The federal government blinks first. Apparently, the concepts of “justice” and “rule of law” no longer apply.
