We acknowledge Mexican Independence Day with a special report from Chiapas about the expanding resistance movement there; we’ll speak with American Indian Movement founder Bill Means and West Coast director Tony Gonzales about the recent police violence at the RNC in St. Paul, and the implications new Homeland Security policies have on Indian treaty rights; we’ll get a report from a Youth Radio reporter from our sister station KPFT in Houston on the state of the hurricane as KPFT was knocked off the air; and the Knight Report.
