Act Out! host Eleanor Goldfield talks with some of our boldest Truth Tellers – Marianne Williamson draws the line between corporate power and policy making, Lawrence Lessig on making our political system provide equal representation.

This week we’re bringing you Seattle’s Best, on land and on sea. Starting with the Seattle premiere of the documentary Killswitch: The Battle to Control the Internet where Lawrence Lessig and Marianne Williamson talked money in politics and the American media to a packed Town Hall.

Next up, #ShellNo continued their fight against the Arctic Destroyer, this time with the help of a seahorse, an Arctic Angel and a solar-powered barge.

Finally, this could be the week that the House votes on Fast Track, the fast forward button for corporate trade deals. We’ll give you tools to help stop this train wreck as artist Stephanie McMillan gives you inspiration to keep fighting.

Some people feel it’s a waste of time to vote. Williamson tells us what the French say about that, “If you don’t do politics, politics do you.”
