Flashpoints – July 15, 2008

Thousands take to the streets throughout Haiti to celebrate the 55th birthday of ousted President Jean Bertrand Aristide, we have a special report from Haiti with legendary folklorist and singer So Anne, we also speak with Haiti pro-democracy leader and close friend of Aristide, Reverend Gerard Jean Juste; also, we’ll have an update on the Berkeley Oak Grove treesitters and a report on the arrest of one of the sitters when he came down; we’ll remember the work and life of Berkeley political luminary Dona Spring; and the Knight Report.
