Flashpoints – October 7, 2009

We spend the hour looking at the environmental justice movement, the wins, the losses and the long fights ahead; we speak with Dean Kuipers, author of a brand-new biography on Rod Coronado, the legendary eco-rights and animal-rights activist; also, we'll hear from longtime activist Mike Roselle and talk about his new book documenting his life and work in the environmental justice movement, including his current struggle to save the mountains of Appalachia from coal strip mining; live music in the studio with political singer-songwriter Dana Lyons; and we'll hear sounds from the documentary film Black Diamonds: Mountaintop Removal and the Fight for Coalfield Justice.
