APEX Express

APEX Express – July 1, 2010

On tonight’s show you’ll hear the first in a series of report backs from the U.S. Social Forum held last week in Detroit. In studio will be Ellen Choy, a core organizer with the Mobilization for Climate Justice West, and Jasmin Thana, a longtime organizer in the Bay Area.

We also have a special excerpt ‘teaser’ from the U.S. Social Forum. We were on the ground getting the sound, so you’re hearing it first!

Also included is an interview with Betty Yu, Network Coordinator of the Media Action Grassroots Network, on broadband internet as a public utility, the need for a non-discriminatory internet, the fight for communication rights in D.C. and how this impacts our communities.

With hosts Eloise and R.J.
