Act Out! Episode 9 – #FreddieGray, TPP, Justice League and Paul Revere (Video)
Review the latest grassroots protest movements with the April 28 episode of Act Out! hosted by Occupy creative activist Eleanor Goldfield. (Please forgive a few foul words.)
James Larkin, Irish trade union leader and social activist, once said, ‘The great appear great because we are on our knees. Let us rise.’
— Eleanor Goldfield, Creative Activist
Spring is rising and so are the people. We cover the latest from the front lines, starting with the fight against TPP and Fast Track featuring Bernie Sanders and a giant horse. Marchers from NYC arrive in DC calling for racial justice, and a push to end police violence and stop the militarization of our cops – the same week that Freddie Gray dies from injuries sustained during a police encounter. Striking at the root of systemic evil, Paul Revere takes his horse down to a GOP convention to decry corruption and we give you the upcoming events to watch out for and where to look. Finally, even a drunk guy can affect change. Small acts people, small acts.
