A thousand dead in Haiti and the death toll still rises as a result of three hurricanes; we’ll also speak with Malik Rahim of Common Ground about the situation in New Orleans at the height of hurricane season; we’ll have a post-mortem on the final slash and burn of the Memorial Oak grove in Berkeley, as tree-sitters are forced to descend; the Block Report interviews a woman recently released from jail after spending seventeen months in solitary confinement; and the Knight Report.
